“As you know there are many things dogs do not like such as showers, grooming, eating dry food. However, when they are used to all these things, they will be excited about it. According to our statistics, 98% of dogs will be used to ‘PooTrap’ after trying it for three days. Again they will be excited to see ‘PooTrap’ on them because this means that their owner is going to walk them out again.”
We’re not math whizzes, but we do know that having seven nail polish bottles in our bathroom means we can paint our nails seven different colors. Soon, however, nail polish arithmetic will get a whole lot more complicated thanks to CND’s upcoming Colour & Effects line. With 50 Colours available — from Brilliant White to Blackjack, and everything in between — along with 15 Effects (variations on pearly, shimmery, and glittery) to layer underneath or on top, there aren’t endless possibilities, but there are hundreds more than we can count on our uniquely manicured hands. [$9 - $11, CND]
We’re giving five readers a bottle of Oil Slick and a bottle of Sapphire Sparkle from CND’s Colour & Effects line (which doesn’t even hit salons until later this fall!), but you have to work if you want your nails to look good.

Generally speaking, I’m happy with my mascara. Fiberwig and I have been through a lot together and it’s remained pretty true, never smudging and leaving me raccoon-eyed when I’m going for smoky-eyed. But every once in a while, you’ve just got to try something new. When I received a bag of Dior goodies to road-test the other day, I knew the time had come to betray the mascara that’s seen me through everything from first dates to weddings. (Other people’s weddings, that is…)
I felt a little dirty at first, as I swiped on the Diorshow Iconic mascara, wand clenched in my sweaty, guilty hand. Then something amazing happened. Keep reading »
The arctic chill of Russia is what inspired John Galliano’s Fall 2009 collection. From balloon-y peasant blouses to full-skirted wool coats, everything echoed an Eastern European winter. Everything except the shoes, or more to the point: these shoes. Besides the furry pom-poms, nothing about Galliano’s Fall 2009 lace-up boots says winter. But that doesn’t stop us from loving them. They’re available in an array of colors, but our favorites are the red (here) and purple. Loving don’t mean buying though. These pretty pom-poms are sure to set one back a pretty penny: several hundred (over a grand?) dollars worth. [Fab Sugar] Keep reading »
Let me guess: Now that you’ve had a boob job, your old bras don’t exactly fit? Hey, it’s not like the doctor said double FFs were going to be comfy to carry around, let alone easy to find a brazier for. Well, thanks to lingerie designer Le Mystère, women who have gone under the knife can now buy over-the-shoulder boulder holders that are comfortable and still stylish. While surgeons should probably just throw a sample in after the expensive surgery, these bras run from $76 to $84 smackeroos. I guess it’s double your cup, double the Victoria’s Secret price tag?

How can you erase that weathered look you get from years of drug abuse? Well, Amy Winehouse proves you don’t need rehab, no, no, no! You just need an eye liner and a penchant for playing connect the dots. The cat-eyed, beehived soul singer has added another beauty ritual to her repertoire: fake freckles. She really has a nose for fashion! And she brought all that elegance with her on a trip to the dentist. With those spots, Amy looks just like fresh-faced Shirley Temple. Jealous? Of course you are! But don’t worry girl, after years of letting my gay boyfriend put makeup on me, I’m a pro at poppin’ on beauty marks. So, here are seven tips for how you can look as glamorous as a Grammy winner.
Christian Louboutin sure knows his customer. First he gave women bitchy red-soled stilettos that practically beg to be taken out for a night on the town. Now he’s providing the booze. Last night, the designer launched his very own champagne in collaboration with Piper-Heidsieck, at, according to his press agent anyway, “an exclusive private press viewing of a scandalous ritual which, having thrived in the 19th century, became emblematic of a luxurious era when Europe was living life to the fullest.” Whatever that means. It’s well known that Loubs loves to swing on the trapeze, but we’re pretty sure that’s not what they’re referring to, and we were too busy to attend, sniff. Next, he’s opening up a dating service. (Just kidding on that last one, but a girl can dream.) Keep reading »

Over on Slate, a male reader wrote to Dear Prudence, asking whether it was normal that his girlfriend of six months has been wearing the same bra every day for two weeks. Was she unhygienic, or simply a normal gal? Prudie responded, saying she polled some of the cleanest women she knows and they wash their bras at most once a week.
We did a little research on the topic, and while it’s pretty easy to find information about how you should be washing your bras (preferably by hand in cold water, air-dried), how often isn’t something that has been spelled out or set in stone. Keep reading »
