The Stila Makeup Player Sorta Rocks

Stila cosmetics has married beauty and technology with the Makeup Player, a high-tech makeup case that also doubles as an MP3 docking station. For less than $70, you not only get the player and a Stila beautytube DVD but also a few of Stila’s tried and true cosmetics — the One Step Foundation, an eyeshadow trio and brush, a Lip Stain, and a Convertible Color for lips and cheeks so you can rock out to music while applying your makeup. And if you want to upgrade your application skills, you can also download instructional videos from beautytube. The Makeup Player will be available Nov. 1. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? [Stila]

Your Grandpa Is A Total Supermodel

Fashion houses are getting creative with their models. First we saw kitties modeling United Bamboo dresses and skirts, then a U.K. dog model (with a contract to boot!) … now, the newest “it” models: goofy grandfather types. For their fall/winter 2009 lookbook, UNUSED dressed up the sweetest older man to sell their clothes. That’s him, above. Personally, I love the guy—there are only so many 28-inch-waisted, high-cheekboned male models one can take. Check out more, after the jump! Keep reading »

Dare To Fight PMS Cramps With A Natural Remedy?

The first time I got my period, my mother (after crying and then running to tell my father even though I had just asked her not to) got into bed with me and brought a rich, dark chocolate mousse with her. She explained to me that women eat chocolate during their periods because it makes them feel calm and happy. This I found to be true, but when Aunt Flo started visiting with more intensity, mom didn’t coddle, and instead handed me a huge dose of Advil. “Are you crazy?” I shouted. “This will kill me!” “No,” she said, “What’s on the bottle is a safe dose, but they use far more in hospitals when people are in pain. You’re in lots of pain.” And so for years I’ve been shoving Ibuprofen down my throat (usually eight or so a day during ladytime). Keep reading »

Review: Sea Of Shoes For Urban Outfitters Holiday Collection

The second round of Jane Aldridge (the teenage Texan behind the blog Sea of Shoes) for Urban Outfitters footwear is out and we’re still, sadly, underwhelmed. The holiday collection is a step up from her last collaboration effort which, if you recall, was painfully unoriginal. This time around, at least, we’d actually be vaguely interested in wearing two of the three pairs and the general level of copycatting has fallen down a few notches. Let’s take a closer look, after the jump! Keep reading »

Eat Cookies And Lose Weight!

Want to eat cookies and lose weight? Sure ya do. According to Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet, it’s entirely possible. With a $59 per week purchase at CookieDiet.com, you’ll receive a set of cookies and instructions to eat six of the treats a day, along with one “real” meal of something like skinless chicken and steamed vegetables. One woman stuck to the diet and in three months she lost 40 pounds. In 2008 alone, the creator made $12 million in revenue — so, people must be loving it. Of course, there’s a catch … Keep reading »

What The Hell Are You Supposed To Do WIth Velcro Rollers?

Let’s talk velcro rollers. When I read about how you could use them to cut down on blow-drying time and sleek-ify hair and add a little volume at the crown of your head, I was intrigued. Or shall I say, re-intrigued—I’ve always been on the verge of buying a few, just to play around with. So, here’s how to use them. Keep reading »

Llama Yacht Polka Dot Tote

Some are gifted with crafty talent and take naturally to a Singer sewing machine. Then there are those whose homespun fashion attempts could land them in the “Project Runway” hall of shame. For the latter who still want to show off a homemade look, try these cute polka-dotted totes by Llama Yacht. Weird name aside, their handmade bags accented with vintage ribbons are just quaint enough to do the trick. [$36, Llama Yacht, Chocosho] Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Smurfette

That evil Gargamel created Smurfette out of clay in order to create chaos at the all-dude Smurf village. Too bad the Smurfs don’t have much going on in the libido department, and instead of competing over her, they took her in as one of their own. After years of rocking semi-slutty Halloween costumes, I’m excited to be Smurfette this year cause she’s cute and sweet and not at all tarty. All it takes is blue face paint, a blonde wig, a white hat and matching dress, and voila, you’re ready to sing “La la la la la la la.” Keep reading »

Blondes Don’t (Always) Have More Fun

You know those T-shirts that say “Blondes Have More Fun”? They make me sort of wistful. For a hefty portion of my life, being blonde was a significant part of my identity, one that was hard to give up. I was born blonde and remained naturally so until junior high, when my hair started to darken with puberty. That’s when I took to the bottle — the bottle of peroxide that is. I associated being blonde with being pretty, feminine, and fun. In junior high I did not feel particularly pretty, feminine, OR fun, but I really wanted to be, so dying my hair — lighter … and lighter … and lighter — was my way of grasping for those qualities.

Hair Model Citizen: Chic Hat Head

Actress Monet Mazur is today’s hair model citizen and here is why: There will be days, my loves, when your trusty tresses will, quite honestly, look like s**t. I know, I know, it’s so unfathomable, but true. Whether you have paparazzi following you around while you’re shopping or you’re simply afraid of running into a boyfriend, a bad hair day calls for a smart hat that helps you take back some control in an unpredictable world. To get the look: sweep hair back from your face; place beneath all-encompassing cap. Shew, that was a close one. [London, 10/22/09] Keep reading »
