Thicker Hair From A Cream

Beyond adding extensions or using complicated styling tricks, there isn’t a whole lot you can do to make your hair thicker than it actually is. But leave it to scientists to figure out how to dupe everyone into thinking Mother Nature blessed you with voluminous strands. Living Proof’s smarty-pants team developed a new material that…

USB Kama Sutra: You Light Up My Sex Life

Neon couples going at it turn more than just the lights on. And, let me tell you, nothing says “do me” to a “Miami Vice” fan quite like these Kama Sutra advertisements/mood lighting. All you gotta do to make it work for you is plug the lights into your USB port. Voila, they’ll illuminate your…

AE Cable Knit Studded Sweater

Every year we buy a few sweaters, but only end up wearing a couple favorites over and over. This year, though, we’ve found one that deserves to be added to the wardrobe mix because it pulls double duty. This particular sweater is perfect for layering under a quilted vest and toning down a full mini-skirt…

Cheapskate: Anthropologie Clearance

I think of Anthropologie as Urban Outfitters‘ older, sophisticated, and more expensive sister. So when someone suggested it for this week’s Cheapskate, I was a little apprehensive. I mean, I hardly ever find anything there that I have to have for the ridiculous price it costs. I have no problem admitting I’m cheap in weird…

Crave: Holiday Pancake Pan

Itty bitty flakes of snow are showing up since the official start of winter is right around the corner! This only means one thing … time to bust out a holiday pancake pan. Get ready for the season by bringing some holiday cheer to the table. The only thing that could make this better i…

No Reindeer Were Harmed In The Making Of This Bag

This hand-quilted bag with a faux antler handle would have coordinated perfectly with the outfit Lady Gaga wore on Monday. And it’s the priciest item we’ve ever encountered on Etsy, so it would match the singer’s expensive taste, too. [$600, Etsy]…

Win This! Dr. Hunter’s Cuticle Cream

As we head into winter, the days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing color, and our skin is majorly drying out. There was no need to bother with hand lotion all summer long, but now, as we turn up the thermostat, our skin feels tight and the hangnails have begun to form. Dr. Hunter’…

Cheapskate: Aeropostale

I’m feeling a little nostalgic as I remember how Aeropostale was the shizznit when I was in high school. The retailer still caters the teen-set with its logo-splattered clothing, but adults like us can still find some necessary basics for cheap, which is how we Cheapskates roll.

Brilliant Gift Idea: Ballet—Wii-Style!

No, I was never one of those little girls being dropped off in her little pink tutu for ballet class—hell, I couldn’t even hack it in the “dance” portion of gymnastics, and my sister and I bailed on the class right before it was time to for my mother to pay for our recital get-ups.

Get Dita’s Hair For The Holidays

Okay, we’re not so naive that we think that using the hair products Dita von Teese is hawking on her website will make us look like the burlesque diva or anything, but we can be kind of excited about it as the perfect gift idea for girly fans. Little known fact: Dita’s mama is a…

Custom Mugs For The Coffee (Or Tea) Drinker Who Has Everything

Finding holiday gifts for everyone on your list isn’t the easiest thing you’ll do this month (actually, the easiest thing to do this month is eat your weight in sugar cookies). Most of us buy the things we need as we need them, which leaves present purchasers without any solid leads. Sometimes, the easiest way…

Cheapskate: Urban Outfitters

There are three things we love about Urban Outfitters: it usually has several iterations of trend pieces per season, the designer collaborations are pretty awesome, and almost everything goes on sale, unless it sells out. Here are some of our Cheapskate finds, after the jump.

Festive Fragrances: New Ralph By Ralph Lauren Candles

As a girl who has been wearing Ralph by Ralph Lauren perfume since she was a teen, I’m intrigued by this new line of RALPH candles, which might just be the answer to finding a signature scent for the home. The collection includes brightly-colored soy candles in a few families of fragrances. Some give off…

Scare Off Unwanted Suitors With This Ring

Rihanna is a fashion trendsetter who is sometimes so far ahead of the curve it’s hard for us to keep up. But, like with Lady Gaga, the best way to follow Rihanna’s lead is to do so subtly. For the past several months, she’s been all about spiked clothes and accessories, from killer rings and…

Let Rachel Bilson Tell You What To Buy

The holidays and Black Friday are coming, which means it’s time to hit the mall for gift inspiration. Enter associated feelings of panic. This year, why not recruit a celebrity to do the hard work for you? After all, they’ve spent the whole year trying new clothing, shoes, and goodies, so who else would know…

Cheapskate: Sears (Yes, Sears)

I can’t tell you the last time I walked into a Sears … Oh, wait, I lie … A few months ago I walked through the department store to get to the rest of a mall, but all I saw were appliances and Craftsman tools. So I was really shocked to learn that the retailer…

Get Your Mitts Off My Boobs, Santa!

This is Urban Outfitters‘ Grey Antics Mrs. Klaus Sweater from their special holiday sweaters collection, but I can’t figure out why anyone would want a cardigan that evokes an image of Santa Claus getting grabby with Mrs. Claus … or you. That’s gross! [Urban Outfitters]…

How To Wear The Oxford Shoe Trend

Oxford shoes are all the rage this season, and your feet should be thankful. You no longer have to manage walking and keeping your foot inside the narrow toe box of a pump, or you can simply forgo wearing heels altogether. But how exactly do you wear these boyish shoes … well … without looking like a…
