We’re reaching the point of the year wherein I refuse to leave my bed at any and all costs because it is so damn cold. There unfortunately aren’t too many upsides to late fall as far as I’m concerned, aside from pretty scarves, outerwear, and, like, wool tights, but none of these things are enough to get me out from under the comforter every morning. But do you know what is? Eyeshadow! I pretty much forget about the stuff when the temperature rises above 50 degrees, because no matter how much primer I slap on or powder I dust on top, it is going to be dripping down my sorry face in a few minutes time.
With the most bloody of celebrations (yay, Thanksgiving!) on deck, I’ve been searching for inspiration to fuel a festive fall eye, and I finally found it in Kristen Stewart‘s gilded take on a smoky eye. She paired it with a gorgeous, quite revealing gown, but this look is equally suited to your Thanksgiving best, even if your Thanksgiving best happens to be your best pair of sweatpants. Find out how to get Kristen’s look, after the jump! Keep reading »
Add one more advertisement to the slew of commercials stereotyping men and women. Asda, a British supermarket, debuted a new ad for the Christmas holidays, featuring a mother running herself ragged, creating the perfect Christmas for her family. Because, you know, that’s what all women do. Keep reading »
Target and Neiman Marcus are at absolute opposite ends of the retail spectrum, which is all the more reason for them to want to come together, right? Whatever the logic behind their decision to collaborate, we have no complaints, even less so now that we’ve gotten to see each of the 55 items from the holiday collection. With prices starting at $7.99, you’d be hard-pressed not to find something that you or someone you know needs this coming season (especially considering, hello, holiday shopping is about to become a legitimate concern). The collection doesn’t hit stores (at Target, Neiman Marcus, and both online sources) until December 1, but the items are sure to sell out fast, so it’s best to go into it knowing exactly what you want. Check out my 12 designer picks from the offerings, and let us know what you’ll be waiting in (or on) line for come December! [Glamour]
The 1993 Disney Halloween comedy “Hocus Pocus” is straight-up one of my favorite movies of all time. I assume everyone has seen it already, but if not, I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you — you just have to watch it, with or without the under-16 audience for which it’s intended. Halloween may be just around the corner, but I’m not spooked to admit that I seek to channel a little bit of “Hocus Pocus” every day of the year (it does star the future Carrie Bradshaw, after all). You can cop the hip witch look, too — just add chunky jewelry and black boots and go, no broomstick required. Keep reading »
I HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT TODAY, JUNE 28, 2012, IS INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY. A SPECIAL CAPS LOCK MEMORY FOR YOU IN HONOR OF THE DAY: I ONCE WORKED FOR SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE EXISTENCE OF THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON AND SHE SENT AN URGENT E-MAIL TO OUR IT GUY SAYING THAT HER COMPUTER “WAS BROKEN” BECAUSE IT “WOULDN’T STOP TYPING IN ALL CAPITALS.” WE DIDN’T HAVE THE HEART TO DIVULGE THE SECRET OF THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON TO HER BECAUSE A) SHE WENT TO AN IVY LEAGUE COLLEGE AND PRIDED HERSELF ON BEING VERY SMART AND B) BECAUSE IT WAS TOO MUCH FUN. ENJOY YOUR DAY AND FEEL FREE TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT.
