Beauty Test Drive: Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend Fragrance

I know what you’re thinking: “Does the world really need another celebrity fragrance?” I have to admit I thought the same thing when I was invited to the launch of Kate Walsh‘s Boyfriend fragrance at Sephora. But instead of paying attention to the celebrity behind the new scent and the packaging that looks way too much like Marc Jacobs, I decided to judge Boyfriend on its own. Keep reading »

14 Short-Haired Ladies Whose Careers Flourished The Closer The Crop

Emma Watson
We liked it when Emma Watson chopped off her hair—something she wasn’t contractually allowed to do while filming “Harry Potter“—into a sleek and sophisticated “you don’t own me” pixie cut. But now, apparently, Emma is having second thoughts about the hair. “I am trying to grow it but it’s slow, it’s taking a while obviously,” she said. “If I want to keep acting then it’s more flexible for me to have it longer for different roles, it’s quite a specific cut.” [People]

 

Pish posh, Emma. If you like your hair short, stick with it. For every Keri Russell, whose career tanked post cut, there’s someone who did great rocking short hair. After the jump, stars whose careers thrived when their hair was shorn.

The Fugs New Louboutins Named After Blake Lively

I’ll console myself with the fact Blake Lively has a pair of Louboutins named after her (and I don’t!) with the fact these heels are kinda fugs. Right? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

The Perm Goes Digital

If you were alive in the ’80s, you probably made at least one trip to the salon to get a perm. I got many perms in my late elementary school years, which is bizarre, come to think of it, considering that I have naturally curly hair. But still, I sat with those rollers in my hair and that foul-smelling solution on my locks for hours, all so my hair would look permanently crimped. What were we thinking? Those perms are so over. Behold the perm of the aughts — the digital perm. This crazy-looking contraption, invented by Japanese hair dressers, uses digitally powered curlers to thermally recondition your hair while infusing it with the curl level of your choice. Instead of the crimped poodle look, you can transform your stick straight hair into flowing, gentle waves or your frizzy hair into manageable curls. The whole process takes about two hours. I think our friend the perm might be making a comeback. A victory for curly hair! [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »

Make Every Bottle Magical

Yeah, we definitely need a Screwnicorn, the love child of a unicorn and corkscrew. This clever bottle opener combines our childhood love of unicorns with our adult love of wine. A magical, mystical drinking experience is guaranteed for all. Unfortunately, rainbows are not included. But you should have fun saying things like, “Please pass the Screwnicorn” or “Let me Screwnicorn that bottle for you.”

Beware Of The Murse: Man Bags Causing Back Pain For Dudes

Listen—can you hear that? It’s the sound of the proverbial gender playing field being leveled. Us ladies are no longer the only ones with back problems thanks to slinging heavy purses over our shoulders. According to the British Chiropractic Association, there has been a 21 percent increase in the number of man bags (murses?) sold in the past year—think Cristiano Ronaldo and his trusty Gucci bag. This spells major back trouble for dudes since the average guy is now carting around 13.7 pounds worth of stuff in his bag. “Man Bags are now a necessity for many men during their daily lives, but they could cause back and shoulder pain from prolonged stress,” says an association spokesperson. “We need to become more savvy in how we use them, whilst learning to read our bodies and know when we’re placing too much pressure on certain points.” Amen to that. But when men start complaining about high-heel pain, I am outtie. [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »
