A Hair Do For Hair You Don’t Want

We are finally safe from waxidents! The FDA has approved a hair remover wand for home use. The Silk’n, created by Home Skinovations, uses photo-thermal technology (aka light) to zap the hair you don’t want down there. After only six treatments, it reduces your hair count by 50%. You still have to go through a doctor to get it, but if you’re a smooth operator, it’ll be all yours. [Engadget] Keep reading »

Cards For The Incarcerated

There are currently more than 2 million people in America’s jails and prisons, and they celebrate birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and New Year’s just like the rest of us. Life continues inside prison walls, but Hallmark doesn’t make a card that says, “I hope you’ll get parole soon!” Three Square Greetings, a company that makes cards expressly intended for prisoners, was founded by Terrye Cheathem after she had a difficult time finding an appropriate card for her brother-in-law, who served 11 months in prison. “There weren’t any cards on the shelf that said anything like, ‘Hey, you must make better choices,’” Terrye said. Pick a card for your deadbeat boyfriend after the jump… Keep reading »

Should The Fashion Peanut Gallery Get A Voice In Wedding Gown Shopping?

I am taking my first stab at wedding dress shopping in a couple weeks. It’s a ways off before I’m getting married, but I like to shop, so why not start with the fun stuff now? The thing is, maybe it won’t be so fun. ABC News did a report on how family members and friends should, could, and sometimes do react when a bride-to-be tries on a gown that they don’t like. Apparently people get really opinionated about other women’s wedding dresses! Should you tell someone that their dress is heinous? What if it’s just hugely unflattering? My friend Lesley, who is probably the most brutally honest of all of my friends — she openly sneers when you say or do something she doesn’t like — says she would tell me if she hated something I tried on. But then again, if I clearly LOVED it, she might go about indicating her feelings in a more roundabout (passive aggressive perhaps?) way. All of this has got me thinking about how honest I would actually want people to be. I mean it’s my day. But at the same time, I don’t want to be walking down the aisle while everyone whispers, “That thing is hideous!” So I think I would only read consider the opinions of people whose style I personally liked (Agathe are you available?) and who understood that what is considered stylish is in the eye of the beholder. So long as it doesn’t resemble a ball of cotton candy with beading barfed all over it. [ABC News] Keep reading »

Vanishing Nailpolish Helps School Girls Avoid Detention

I never experienced the pain (or the pleasure) of attending an all-girls school when I was a kid, but I’m well-aware of the fine line these chicks walked — skirts were hiked up, tank tops were knotted, lipstick was applied, and your big sister’s Chanel nail polish was swiped off her dresser. But nail polish is one of the things that’s forbibben at many girls’ schools, which explains why a couple of industrious gals in the U.K. put their highschool science skills to good use and created nail color which “vanishes” under exposure to sunlight, thereby making it easy to wear the polish to school, but hide it from watchful hall monitors.

Would You Wear This? The Paris Hilton Shoe Collection

Currently available on Zappos.com, Paris Hilton’s shoe collection has, um, pink and leopard print and looks the way her fragrance smells. Jessica Simpson, your fashion line has got competition! So what do you guys think? The “Icon” style makes me feel ill, but “Vogue” (in nude) is kind of cute and ladylike. [Zappos via Perez Hilton] Keep reading »

Smell Like A Lilly

Lost star Evangeline Lilly is set to be the cover girl for Cool Water Woman. She will join her co-star Josh Holloway in promoting the Davidoff line of scents. Lilly promises, just like her character, her fragrance, “definitely represents the juxtaposition between purity and sensuality.” Well, I don’t know if it’s gonna be all that, but if it works on Sawyer I’m going to need a lifetime supply.
