When I was in college, I started doing this innovative thing with my clothes: I wore dresses over jeans. It was not cool. It was so not cool that one of my coworkers at the college paper wrote in my bio, “Julie started the dresses over jeans trend–AND WE WISH SHE WOULD STOP.” But then! Lo, some three years later, EVERYBODY was wearing dresses over jeans. Marc Jacobs was putting dresses over jeans down the frigging runway. We now have an entire confusing category of clothing–the dress/shirt or shirt/dress–created from this trend. I feel vindicated: I was ahead of the curve on the dress/jeans combo. Maybe I even invented it (probably not).

My hair has become quite dry since I’ve switched to an extra-strength dandruff shampoo, so I’ve been on the hunt for hair products that would restore my hair’s moisture after I used the dandruff shampoo.

So I tried the LiQWD Hydrating Shampoo, LiQWDITY Intensive Hair Repair, and LiQWD Professional Smoothing Catalyst expecting it to have the same results as other hair products I’ve tried.

Plus, it smells really great, so even if V-Day blows, LOVE shampoo does not.

Maybe you haven’t seen “Black Swan
” yet, but everyone by now knows that movie is CRAZY
. True story: yesterday I saw “Black Swan” and as the credits were rolling, my mom goes, “Which one was Winona Ryder
?” And I said, “The crazy one.” And then some random woman who overheard us added, “They were all crazy.” You know what else is crazy in that movie? The makeup. That’s why YouTube star GlowPinkStah
has filmed herself doing a wacky-ass “Black Swan” makeup tutorial for Natalie Portman
‘s signature look. But seriously, no one watches her videos to see her do makeup. Her ridiculously dry sense of humor and biting social commentary is worth the spoilers. If you’ve seen “Black Swan,” it will make more sense. But either way, go get yourself a diaper because you’re gonna pee yourself laughing. It’s … dare I say … perfect
