Found: The Best Mosquito Repellent That’s Not Actually Mosquito Repellent

After this brutal winter, I was so, so excited when the sun finally came out and the average temperature rose from 6 to 76. “Ahh, spring is here!” I sang merrily as I busted out my flowy tank tops, lopped all the legs off my jeans, and hung a hammock in my backyard. After pouring…

Quotable: Is It A Faux Pas To Match Your Makeup To Your Outfit?

“If the shade is in the same family, but a slight variation it should be okay.”– Jillian Dempsey, a celebrity makeup artist and Patrick Dempsey’s wife, answered a question that’s been on my mind since Michelle Obama wore blue eyeshadow with a blue gown to the White House State Dinner. The first lady followed Jillian’…

Ashley Greene Isn’t The Only Big Thing Happening At Avon

Take A Mod Roman Holiday

It’s kind of surprising that the gladiator sandal has remained trendy for going on three summers now. But, honestly, the look isn’t for everyone. Avon’s Mod Fever Patent Sandal bridges the divide between strap-happy gladiators and simple thong sandals, a staple in most women’s closets. The circles add subtle flair and the tiny heel give…

Keri Hilson Is The New Face Of Avon

Now that Keri Hilson is the new face of Avon, she can be known for something other than completely effing up the national anthem.
