Beauty Tips Straight From Mom

No one is more surprised than my family that I write for a beauty and style blog because I was the dirtiest little tomboy in my youth. Dresses? Prissy. Makeup? Prissy. Nail polish? So prissy.

But, try as I might, I couldn’t escape everything grooming-related. I remember how, after a bath, I’d sit on the stool in our old kitchen while Mom would brush detangler through my locks and then blow dry it.

The difference in votes between Jennifer and Angelina was probably more of a popularity contest, but I totally get why moms wouldn’t trust Oprah — she probably doesn’t even care for her own dogs.

Ellen seems to be a rather responsible, trustworthy person, so I get why she was chosen, but there are so many others we would have picked to take care of our hypothetical kids. And definitely some we wouldn’t. Keep reading »
