Has The Recession Cut Back On Your Blowout Budget?

Check out the big-deal blowout Ashley Tisdale was rocking on the red carpet for last night’s premiere of “Fame.” Gotta say, it’s been a looooonnnggg time since I saw a celeb sport the basic (and expensive to all of us, not to mention time-consuming) blowout. There wasn’t a messy curl in sight. No artfully mussed waves. No going with your natural hair tendencies. And while I think the hairdo is sort of refreshing-looking after such a long stretch of bedhead-y hair—I have to wonder one thing … Keep reading »

Beauty Solutions For Curing Insomnia

Some nights the tossing and turning is inevitable — between deadlines, stress, and all the other crazy things you have going on, it’s always something. Obviously, you need a solution, because the under-eye bags are simply not cute or acceptable. Everyone knows that lavender is supposed to help induce zzz’s. But, besides filling my pillow with flowers, I need some alternative assistance.

According to the Telegraph, here are a few beauty-inducing solutions to those battle terrible insomnia moments. Keep reading »

When Eyelashes Grow Too Far


Earlier today we warned you about scary potential side effects involved with controversial lash-growing product Latisse. (And earlier this week, Kim Kardashian showed herself to be a cautionary tale when it comes to lash extremes.) But please check out model/actress Molly Sims and Co. in this highly educational video. And um, another word of caution: You probably don’t wanna be eating while you watch this video. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

Fashion Week Runway Moments That Channel Disney Characters

No matter how grown up you are now, don’t even try to tell us you weren’t full-on obsessed with at least one Disney character way back when. The thing is, you hit your teens and all of a sudden it was “weird” that you were still dressing up as Little Red Riding Hood. (Or so I was told.) But a handful of designers are clearly sick of the stigma attached to dressing like you’ve just left the set of a Disney movie. Designer Christopher Kane, for example, marched the perfect little gingham dress down the runway, channeling “Alice in Wonderland” but cooler. Refinery29 rounded up a few more look-alikes, after the jump. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: 10 Things Under $102 At Creatures Of Comfort

We love clothes, um, a lot. Whether they’re from Walmart, JCPenney, or Gap — or on the fancier side — we think getting dressed in the morning is fun. We don’t, however, like to spend tons of money on new dresses and jeans. After all, we have 401ks to contribute to and rent to pay. As much as we like the nicer stuff and will splurge from time to time, we like sales even more, which is why we’re such Gilt Groupe and clearance fanatics. For this edition of Cheapskate, we’re showing off 10 items under $102 from the clearance section of one of the coolest stores that has an online home, Creatures of Comfort. Most of the designer clothes they sell go for big bucks; luckily, these won’t break the bank. Keep reading »

Have Hot Tub, Will Travel

Every once in a while, I’m sitting somewhere and I get the urge to soak in a hot tub. OK, this doesn’t really happen to me, but I’m sure that’s what the people behind SpaBerry are banking on. For $4,999, you can buy this portable two-person spa that works with any 110V outlet once filled with water. Also available are various BerryWraps, as the company calls the $399 stickers that change the look of your SpaBerry. We’re big fans of the Blueberry Wrap, because when you think about it, who wouldn’t want to soak in a tub of giant blueberries? [SpaBerry via Trendhunter] Keep reading »

Crave: Names And Notes Napkin Rings

Back-to-school blues? Satisfy your nostalgia with something both classic and reusable like these Names and Notes napkin rings, which are like mini-chalkboard place cards. Outfitted with a layer of black matte paint, the set of four comes with a white pencil for writing the names of your dinner party guests and an eraser sponge (clean slate, clean plate?). Or, you could use these doodads to discreetly pass notes (“Do you like me? Circle one: Yes, No”). We’d try decorating our table with white and black plates to match. [$58 for four, Gessato.com]

MAC Gets Back To Black

The webs have been buzzing over MAC‘s much-anticipated new all-black collection, Style Black, for awhile now. We’re excited to report it finally launched today! We are not just talking about eyeliner here, we’re talking black lipstick, baby. Now, we’ve all decided that the latter is one helluva tricky trend, but today we’ve got options. The line includes three Glimmerglass glosses that make black lips a little more wearable: There’s Blackfire Sheer black with berry-ish pearl; Bling Black Sheer, which is translucent black with a gold glimmer; and, of course, Blackware Creamy, which is a true black for the truly brave. Either you like to roll goth-style or you don’t, but we definitely plan on snapping up a couple of the limited editions. Check out the whole collection here. Keep reading »

Would Sitting On This Bar Stool Gross You Out?

Hair that’s not attached to people’s heads can be pretty gross. Like the chunks your roommate left in the shower drain. Or the hair bunnies you find under your bed. So, we’re not sure how we feel about the PrettyPretty seating collection designed by Dejana Kabiljo. They’re sort of gross but also quite pretty — just look at those glistening, well-conditioned locks! Made from horsetail hair, PrettyPretty seating comes in either a pouf (photo after the jump) or bar stool style with the hair either free-flowing or tied down, and Philippe Starck even chose the stool version for the main bar of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. How would you feel about sitting atop a hunk of shiny horsehair? [1stDibs via Trend Hunter] Keep reading »

Eyelash Growth Product Latisse Faces Backlash

For some, Latisse has proven to be a miracle beauty product as the formula promises to grow full, long, thick eyelashes. Though Latisse was FDA approved, take heed: Cityfile is reporting that the FDA has now released an advisory letter regarding Latisse, the details of which are downright scary … Keep reading »
