    Are you feeling lost when it comes to picking your new spring style? Three of the most important things to consider when thinking about changing to a new hair color are 1.) the color genre you want to be in, 2.) multi-dimensional or 2-dimensional, and 3.) how those decisions will influence your haircut. The problem with that is, most people don’t know how to make those decisions — and most stylists don’t want to sway you away from what hair color you think you want.  Chances are, even if they did, by the time you are sitting in their chair your mind has already been made…

When you're brimming over with tears at the sight of a new head of hair you didn't ask for, that's the last thing a woman wants to hear. My first bad haircut was at age seven, and I can still recall bursting into tears in the back of my mom's minivan after shyly nodding that, yes, I liked my new bangs, to the stylist moments before. Decades later, and I still haven't learned the art of politely informing a stylist that I hate what she's done to me. When I wondered out loud how to fix a bad…

    Alicia Silverstone touring for her “The Kind Mama” Known for her character Cher in the 90s hit movie, “Clueless”, Alicia Silverstone was the  quintessential blond. But her iconic blond locks have taken a backseat to the new, darker hue. I have to say the subtle waves and pretty golden brunette shade are really pretty on Alicia and bring out her facial features nicely.

    Bath and Body Works Hawaiian Scents Collection I couldn’t help but notice the new Bath & Body Works line which features Hawaiian-themed scents, like Oahu Coconut Sunset, Maui Hibiscus Beach and Hawaii Passionfruit Kiss. My personal favorite is Oahu Coconut Sunset which is what they describe as a sunny blend of coconut blossoms and exotic tiger lily warmed by molten amber. But if coconut isn’t your thing, Maui Hibiscus Beach  is described as a refreshing mix of star fruit, fresh mango wood and sweet tropical hibiscus while they say Hawaii Passionfruit Kiss is a sexy pairing…

    Jessica Alba at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards Celebrity hairstylist, Davey Newkirk wanted to create a look for Jessica Alba that was playful, modern hollywood glamorous, so he opted for simple loose waves for her. To start with Davey applied John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray all over Jessica’s wet hair. Then he blew out her hair using a large round brush to give her tons of volume and a lot of shine. After blow drying, he parted her hair into 2 inch sections (starting from the nape and working up) and curled the sections using a large 1 ½ inch curling iron. As he…

    Sarah Hyland at the 2014 Marie Claire Fresh Faces Party Sarah Hyland stepped out to the 2014 Marie Claire Fresh Faces Party sporting her freshly balayage-styled hair. And her hair was definitely “the thing” because, she kept her makeup simple and basic keeping the focal point on her face-framing lighter locks. I’m digging the new color, I think it adds a little youthful play to her look. Her bronzed cheeks play up the golden girl look nicely, as a finishing touch.

    Do you remember the exact time, date and location of your first massage? Well, I do. The date was August 25, 2005. The time was around 3pm. And the location was John Robert's Spa in Cleveland, Ohio.Why do I remember this massage so vividly, you may ask? Only because it was not only my very first, but to this day, my very BEST. Until this day, I hadn't really thought massages were something I'd like. Have a stranger touch me? No thanks. Well, how quickly my opinion changed once I had the opportunity to lie on the massage table at John Robert's.My massage was only 30 minutes long -- which,…

    Do your lips need a little extra moisture after what seems like a neverending winter? Treat 'em right with the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask.I don't know about you, but my lips have pretty much been chapped since November. Luckily, this mask combats the dryness with a bio-active blend of organic agave nectar, jojoba oil and vanilla CO2 extract. The formula is smoothing and immediately hydrating -- but what I really love is how long it lasts! I've been applying it before bed twice a week and when I wake up 8 hours later, my lips are still soft and moisturized.Now for the cons (of which there are…

The moment I laid eyes on it, I simply had to have it!Truth be told, I'm pretty sure this fragrance could have smelled terrible and I still would have wanted it. I just loved the shape of the bottle, which was an oversized black and white exclamation point. (What can I say? I've always been obsessed with all things grammar, punctuation and spelling.) And, actually, I really don't even remember what it smelled like, although I recall a certain…

But one thing is for sure: It's exactly the hairstyle I'd expect to see on a Duchess. Good work, Kate. Now, how many of you pinned this for…

He traced her lids with eyeliner around the outer halves as usual, but it's the inner corners where things get interesting. He not only traced the inner V's of her eyes in pencil, he did it just a smudge out from her eyes, so she ended up with exaggerated lines that were very graphic-looking pop-art-y.

    2 Apr 2014 | 3:10 pm
    . Earlier this year, Olay‘s Wrinkle Relaxing Complex, from the brand’s Regenerist range, was renamed 10 Minute Miracle. (It is essentially the same product with minor tweaks, according to the ingredient list of Wrinkle Relaxing Complex on Olay’s UK website.) Today let’s take a closer look at this product. Olay Regenerist 10 Minute Miracle (50ml, £29.99) is a silicone-based product with a thick serum consistency that doesn’t feel heavy. It has a very smooth and silky texture and is absorbed well. Some of the moisturizing ingredients in this product are glycerin,…

    Chanel Hello (184) Glossimer For summer, Chanel introduces four new shades of their Chanel Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.). All four have a “jelly” finish, and they’re very, very sheer and have a tendency to look the same applied to lips. Chanel described them as “translucent.” They’re as described, though shorter-wearing than the average Glossimer, but otherwise rather consistent. If you have more pigmented lips than mine, you may even find that they do not alter your natural lip color at all. The four feel the same: light-to-medium in weight,…

  • Rouge Bunny Rouge - Quartz Eyeliner - Tanzanite Essence (051)

    Gaia Fishler
    24 Apr 2014 | 9:13 am
    Rouge Bunny Rouge Devotion Ink Quartz Eyeliners offer a fun way to add color and shimmer to your makeup look. They're meant to be noticed and admired, and are better suited for a glam evening than for a meet-the-parents kind of a day (Rouge Bunny Rouge also offers regular pen eyeliners in solid colors as well as pencils and khols). The applicator makes creating a bold graphic look very easy, and you can wear them as is or layer them over an opaque pencil or gel eyeliner for even more drama. See my review of the RBR Quartz Eyeliner in Tiger Eye for more details.Tanzanite Essence is a silvery…
  • Bois 1920- Sushi Imperiale

    Gaia Fishler
    23 Apr 2014 | 9:54 pm
    There's a large Japanese market and shopping center here in North Jersey with an incredible food court. Some of the counters there specialize in Japanese sweets. Despite the stunning presentation, these little treasures can be an acquired taste. I love most of this stuff: weird doughy or gelatined textures, ingredients such as mochi and red bean paste, and flavors that sometimes border on the savory yet are most definitely dessert. Sushi Imperiale from Bois 1920 reminds me of these mysterious little dumplings.When Bois 1920 first appeared on the American niche market somewhere around 2006 it…

While I do tend to go gaga over all those special seasonal colors in collector's packaging, there's a special place in heaven for creative directors who create gorgeous and fresh looks with their permanent collections. And this is exactly what Kirsten Kjaer Weis has done for her April Look of the Month (it's not too late for that, is it?). It's a fresh-faced pink cheek with a classic smoky eye.

The compact is gorgeous and I love that it's not just about blue, though, and offers two additional salmon colors, one with more sheen than the other as a counterbalance that lets you create wearable looks.All five colors in YSL Bleus Lumiere are saturated and rich. The glimmer you see in the pan is more subtle on skin, and the texture is beautiful and soft. The eye shadows are NOT of the YSL wet-dry…

I haven’t had the opportunity to get dressed up and fancy in a while, so I’m looking forward to pulling out the heels and little black dress. As for my makeup, I’ll be making good use of the Temptu Flawless Complexion Kit in Poppy Red ($170 US). The brightly colored system is part of their Kaleidoscope Color Collection, which comes in four other vibrant colors for Spring 2014. The first time I tested out the AIRbrush Makeup System 2.0 was on a friend who has the same skin tone as me. The Temptu…

    As much as I love the convenience of having so many brands under one roof when I’m shopping at Sephora or a department store, I treasure the shopping experience I have at freestanding boutiques. The most noticeable difference between the two would be the employees, who are much more passionate and knowledgeable about the company and line at a boutique. Little perks like samples or a visually engaging window display are just perks to the actual people in the store that embody the shopping experience. If you can get to NYC, I highly recommend going to the NARS store on Bleecker St. in West…

She never feels the need to use a mirror unless it’s already conveniently handy. She’s less concerned about the precision of her look, because she pulls off her beauty with an impression of cool insouciance. As for me, I would never trust myself to fix any of the makeup on my face without some sort of reflective surface. Where we differ here though on lipsticks, we find common ground in lip pencils. Even I can dare to apply them without a mirror (though I would still…

    OK. Ladies, has this ever happened to you? You look in the mirror and spot a dark, thick hair on your chin or upper lip. Aghast, you immediately pluck it. It grows back. You pluck it again. It grows back again, only this time you swear it’s darker and thicker. What’s going on? You’re not alone. The bad news is that it’s all too common among most women. The good news is that it’s almost always benign. First, it’s a myth that plucking hairs causes them to grow in darker or thicker. These hairs are coarser and thicker because they are secondary sexual…
  • Will Less Shampooing Help With Oily Hair?

    Dr. Benabio
    8 Apr 2014 | 10:07 am
    I get this question all the time from patients, particularly men. Here’s the truth about shampooing and oily hair: No matter how frequently you shampoo, your scalp produces the same amount of oil. Cutting back on shampooing will have no effect on your sebaceous glands; genetics and hormones determine the amount of oil they produce. But it will cause dirt and oil to accumulate on your scalp and hair follicles, and could cause inflammation and irritation that might stunt hair growth. How often you wash your hair is a personal decision. Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo when you…
  • 4 Ways to Treat Damaged Winter Hair

    Dr. Benabio
    18 Mar 2014 | 3:30 pm
    It’s been a rough winter for most of the country. When you’ve got arctic temperatures and gusting winds you’ve also got low humidity in the air. And low humidity not only dries out your skin but also dries out your hair. If your hair is feeling dry and brittle and is seeking the summer warmth, then read on. Here are four tips to help you repair your damaged winter hair: 1. Reduce shampooing. Shampooing every second or third day will allow natural oils to remain on your hair and scalp and prevent further drying. 2. Go deep. Once to twice a week, massage a deep conditioner…
  • A Surprising Finding About Athlete’s Foot

    If you’re a guy reading this, I can be sure of two things: 1. You’ve probably suffered from athlete’s foot. 2. You’ll probably suffer from athlete’s foot again. We know that walking barefoot in public locker rooms, gyms, and pools put you at  risk for athlete’s foot. But now there’s a new culprit in town: your laundry. When researchers in Israel compared fungus-laced socks that were washed in warm water to those washed in hot water, they found that 36% of the socks in the warm water remained contaminated while only 6% of those in the hot water did.
  • Are Skin Tags Dangerous?

    Recently I had a middle-aged male patient come to me worried that he had cancer-causing growths under his arms and on his neck. Turns out all he had were harmless skin tags. A skin tag is a benign growth of skin cells. They tend to form in areas where the skin creases such as your neck, breasts, armpits, and groin area. Although close to half the population has skin tags, they’re more common among certain groups: women, particularly during pregnancy, the elderly, and overweight or obese individuals. Skin tags tend to run in families, so if your grandmother and mother has them, chances…

    One of the reasons I post challenges on Soaper's Retreat on facebook is to push your abilities to express yourselves and the photographs you take of the masterpieces you make.  In life and in work, I always feel like if I don't push the envelope or think outside the box, in my work, or anything else I do, will just be overlooked, be plain, "pedestrian"... and like everyone else's.  So this challenge, The Food Challenge, was to use a food item, never used BY YOU before in your soaps.  I was clear in my food challenge description, that failures (meaning that if the food item…

    Marianne Rice of The North Street Bubble sent me an array of gorgeous soaps about a year ago to try and possibly review and I just loved them.  I loved the way each one looked and smelled.  They each had a distinct look about them, and were mindfully handcrafted and sent individually in paper bags ink stamped with the TNSB logo on them.Sadly, I waited so very long to actually get into my shower with them.  Why did I wait so very long to use them??  Have I been so consumed with my own life that I could not muster unveiling one of those suckers for my own use?  Ugh, I…

  • Shoes That Will Never Fail You

    Maria Palma
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:16 am
    If there’s one type of shoe that is a staple in my closet, it’s a pair of black flats. I didn’t realize how important this shoe was to me until I started working in retail sales when standing up for 8 hours a day was the norm.The beauty of black flats is that you can wear them with everything - I mean everything - whether it’s jeans, shorts, skirt, or dresses. Yeah, they could be considered boring, but I don't care. They're comfortable and that's all that matters to me. I tend to wear them out, so I end up buying a new pair every couple years. I actually should keep a few…

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know I've been having issues with my skin, which used to be considered combination skin that has now turned into annoying as heck dry, flaky skin. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with getting older, but I guess I can't complain too much because I don't have to deal with breakouts anymore. However, now that I am getting older, my skincare regimen has become just a tad bit more complex. Gone are the days of simply washing with soap and water and applying makeup. Caring for my skin has become a daily ritual with high hopes…

    I've been discovering more and more amazing products from BECCA lately, and their infamous BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector  is as amazing as many beauty lovers have said! This is at first glance a liquid highlighter, but it also manages to do much more. First is has an SPF 25+, which is a fantastic benefit for protecting the skin while at the same time providing a beautiful glow. What separates this product from many other liquid highlighters on the market is the texture and finish. It is silky smooth and almost weightless on the skin, but the finish, while…

I could use the yellow background color simply as a highlighter (which is much softer and sheerer on the skin than it looks in the pan), or I could combine the two pink shades together as a blush, or just use the deeper pink flower shade as a blush.  The best part is, if you choose to swirl all three shades together, the result is the prettiest, most flattering rose/gold…

It’s just a perfect, rich, bright, intense blue. No way I could pass it up. The color doesn’t come by itself though, like I was expecting. It comes in a little box with a set of clear “CD” nail stickers and a nail file. Unfortunately the stickers didn’t really…

  • How does Shiseido’s smudge proof lipstick work?

    Perry Romanowski

    PMA says…There is something special about Shiseido’s lipsticks: although they give an extremely moist feel and appearance, they are “smudge-proof” (and since 80′s or early 90′s). Yes, there are some other “smudge-proof” lipsticks in the market, but they usually are matte and can even dry out your lips. Shiseido explains these characteristics have to do with the control of “oil separation” but I really didn’t understand their explanation.

Pigmentation and uneven skin tone is such a problem today.  Dark Spots, Photodamage are known as sun damaged skin is something that most people will not escape. It occurs with exposure to sunlight starting at an early age with 25% of our exposure occurring before the end of our teens. Even if you limit your exposure as an adult and use SPF there is a real possibility you will develop dark spots.   Even if you get rid of your pigmentation, it can come back immediately just spending a short time in the sun without protections.

Makeup needs a game-changer!  Turns out, it is here. Now. Blue Sun Research Group has developed Pax Cosmetic…

The formula is a little on the thick side, so I needed to be careful to apply…

I’m not the “edgy” type nor am I daring…I’m more slap on some pink on it kinda gal, but the scents themselves sound interesting. When a sample of Gucci Guilty Black landed on my desk a few months back, I relegated the black and red bottle to my perfume wardrobe and saved it for a rainy day. That day has come and I’m kicking myself for not wearing this more often! An oriental floral (floriental??) fragrance, it has notes of…

    14 Apr 2014 | 4:53 pm
    Best thing about being a beauty blogger? All the products, of course! (I’m sorry to say that’s true, but it’s true.) I often get sent new products to try, and then they’ll sit around my bedroom, taking up way too much space until E. finally snaps and forces me to test or donate. In those overwhelmed moments, I’m likely to pick the easier ‘donate’ option…and then I don’t have a chance to regale you all with tales of how X product rocks or Y product is lame. I’m going to start doing more First Impressions videos of products sent to me,…

  • Giorgio Armani Cosmetics Pop Up in Harvey Nichols Manchester & my Makeover with Cesar Santos!

    Row
    24 Apr 2014 | 6:20 am
    Last week I visited one of my favourite luxe cosmetic brands Giorgio Armani in Harvey Nicolas Manchester, as they currently have a pop up counter in thereThe Armani counter is very sleek, spacious and also quite private – perfect for getting a little make over without glaring passers by!  Where to begin with the Armani brand if you have never tried their products before?  Their range is luxe and therefore is pricy, but also very good quality and lasts a very long time.  I can’t remember the last time I finished up an Armani product even with regular use because you tend to only…

    23 Apr 2014 | 6:19 am
    Flori Roberts is a cosmetic and skincare brand developed for women of colour – there’s a fairly generous selection of products and colours to choose from that particularly complement darker skin tones.  The colour products from the range look intriguing, and I wanted to try out some of the darkest shades in the collection!  I have Bloodstone and Black Brandy, both very dark toned rich berry-plums.  I have been obsessed with these type of lip colours recently – unlike red, I find there’s less of an issue finding a good shade for my skin tone.  Flori Robers Moisturising…

    I have already reviewed a few colours from the glorious Estee Lauder Colour Envy Lipstick range; now I have a new pretty colour to review; an very dark, rich purple.  I am in love with these dramatic colours at the moment even though they seem scary in the tube, they do have a lot of impact.   Insolent Plum is one of the darkest colours in the current Color Envy collection. It is a deep rich purple berry which has enough warmth to it too look lovely on the skin, and not too Morticia Addams.  As with the Color Envy collection this lipstick texture is really lovely; soft and highly…

    I never thought of myself as someone who has time to use a highlighter in my make up routine, and day to day, I don’t, but for special occasions – why not?!  I do have a problem with finding the right tone highlighter – I have a light bronze (Dior), and golden peach (3CE) and now, a Cindy-Lou Manizer – yes, that’s what it’s called!  This product is from the ever creative, The Balm: Cindy-Lou Manizer is a powder highlighter (or an all over finish powder) that has a honey-peach-golden tone to it.  I do find many highlighters are too white toned, which looks odd on my…

Eliminate these five common mistakes and give your hair the TLC it deserves. 1. Rushing from dryer to flat iron.

  • Skin Care Ingredients to Avoid Using Together

    Renée Rouleau
    24 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    All the amazing active ingredients available in skin care products these days can truly improve the appearance of your skin, so it can be tempting to want to use them all. However, before you layer on products, be sure you’re not using these ingredient combinations at the same exact time to avoid an adverse reaction:Do not mix a Vitamin C serum with:  Retinol. Each active ingredient has a different purpose and using them at the same time in high concentrations may result in irritation. Plus, retinol should always be used in the evening (the time where your skin is repairing…

    Of all the skin concerns that one has, getting rid of dark circles and under eye puffiness is one complaint I hear about very often from my clients in my skin care spas. Lack of sleep, allergies, climate, stress, nose job (rhinoplasty), salty foods and genetics can be the cause for both conditions and it has been and up until now, it’s been difficult to improve. I’ve taken my 27+ years of experience and product know-how and have developed what I believe is the best under eye cream to instantly brighten tired eyes.

  • The Real Truth About Looking Younger

    Renée Rouleau
    15 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    No one wants to get wrinkles and people will go to great lengths to get rid of them by getting professional treatments (like facials, lasers and chemical peels) or even Botox, dermal fillers or other cosmetic procedures. They will also prevent more from forming, by using topical products like sunscreen and retinol.While all of those procedures and topical treatments certainly have their benefits, I think the first step before deciding a course of action is for people to determine what they want in regards to their skin’s appearance. Sometimes, these professional procedures can…
  • Four Surprising Professions That Age Skin Quickly

    Renée Rouleau
    9 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    Whenever I consult with clients, along with asking questions about their skin concerns, I also inquire about their lifestyles, such as their occupations, hobbies and how often they travel. These factors can have a huge influence on how their skin behaves and ultimately how it will visibly age. In my experience, I have found these professions to expedite premature wrinkling and skin aging:  Pilot. This profession requires a person to sit in front of a huge window in the cockpit where massive amounts of strong UV light affect the skin. Since UV light is the #1 cause of wrinkles and they are…

    The finish on this one is halfway between a frost and a shimmer…and, sadly, the polish does tend to show brushstrokes a bit. It reminds me of L’Oreal’s VIP Status, but with more opacity. I’m hoping I can use just a little bit of polish thinner, and get the spreadability…

    A Zoya-metallic finish…which means “buffed-shine” rather than the metallic finish polishes from Color Club, Sally Hansen, and others. Aside from the generous definition of the finish, this is a lovely candycane-red with embedded microglitter shimmer. I think this is a neutral red, with pink tones. It’s not overtly cool or…

    When I first began seeing pictures of the palette online, I didn’t know if I’d be as thrilled with it - it’s lots of brighter colors, and I tend to look better in and prefer slightly deeper shades. Still, the occasional bright color can look very nice, when it’s set…

  • PERFECT Black Eyeliner Pen Review and Swatches

    Musical Houses
    22 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    I was recently introduced to PERFECT, a fairly new local beauty brand. Yes, PERFECT is the brand name. Right now, PERFECT only has one product, and that is a black pen eyeliner. I always love trying out new brands and products, so I was happy to review this. PERFECT Black Eyeliner Pen The PERFECT Black Eyeliner Pen comes with quite high expectations, I'll admit. After all, right there on the packaging, it touts its own major features of being quick drying, smudgeproof, waterproof, and well, having a perfect tip.

    Etude House, the Korean brand known for its girly, affordable yet quality products, has launched their newest line of lip products, the Color Lips Fit. This is a lip tint type of product, which made me happy, because after having been to Korea I realized how popular these seem to be and am now officially a huge fan of liptints. It is, however, slightly different from your typical liptint. Etude House Color Lips Fit: Bright, pigmented, yet lightweight colour. The Color Lips Fit are touted to deliver a bright blast of colour, yet feel weightless and non-sticky on the lips. There are a range of…

    Along with the MUFE HD Second Skin Cream Blush that was launched recently, MUFE has also launched a set of makeup brushes, which I thought deserved their own post, because these are some really standout makeup brushes! MUFE Buffer Blush Brush #152 and Medium Highlighter Brush #154 One of the really standout features of these new brushes are how soft they are. When I heard that these were made of synthetic bristles, my first thought was, "Aren't all these synthetic-bristled brushes the same? They all feel the same to me!" And I learned that these are made from a different…

    Today's post is just a quick swatch of TheBalm's Mary Lou-Manizer, the beige/champagne shimmery highlighter that's been getting lots of raves from everyone. I happened to be in the store, looking around, when this caught my eye, and I was entertaining that age-old question that plagues every beauty blogger, "To buy or not to buy". (Believe me, after nearly 5 years as a beauty blogger, saying no to that question isn't any easier than it was when I began...Darn the slick marketing departments of beauty brands.)

When I made Coconut & Plum Whipped Body Butter I thought that it couldn't get any better. Boy, was I wrong. As wonderful as it is to slather your body in the aroma of sweet plum and rich coconut, it is nothing compared to the pleasure of having that tasty combination all over your lips.

I really does plump up my lips (see my before and after with the clear version here). City Cosmetics recommends you wear the clear version nightly for 30 days to increase collagen production. It takes about 10 minutes for full plumping results. You can wear it alone or put it on over lipstick. In the photo above, I’m wearing the Sangria shade alone.

  • Probably—and here’s what you can do about it

    Michelle Villett
    23 Apr 2014 | 5:16 pm
    If I had to pick the single most common, frustrating and embarrassing skincare issue—that is also rarely treated for the root causes—it would be adult acne. Who’s with me on this? I’ve struggled with it in the past and chances are you have, too, along with dozens of women you know. According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, it impacts up to 30 percent of adults aged 20 to 40, and 75 percent of the sufferers are female. “Thanks, hormones,” you might be thinking. Meaning estrogen and progesterone, probably, and their fluctuations throughout the menstrual…

But I understand if others might not feel the same way. I mean, talk about Girl Hot/Guy Hot. This is one look I doubt certain men would ever understand. But that’s okay, because the men Lupita has working for her right now…

    Now that I’m back on the natural nail train I had to pick up some new nail products for my at home stash. I haven’t done my nails at home in so long that I didn’t even realize that there was no nail polish remover in site at my house! LOL! So of course I had to get that and more. Here’s what I picked up: - His & Her Mr. Pumice Pumi Bar – Gotta keep them feet soft! - Nail Buffer - Seche Ultra V Top Coat – I’ve heard pretty good things about this top coat. We’ll see how I like it. - Beauty Secrets Nail Polish Dryer - Beauty Secrets Non…

    A little over a month ago I joined a gym close to my house. I try to get in there about 3-4 times a week and I’ve been doing pretty good! When I weighted myself a few weeks ago I’d lost 4 pounds. I haven’t weighted myself recently because I didn’t want to be a “slave to the scale”. Summer is right around the corner so I decided to go harder for the month of April and do a personal fit challenge. I decided to post about it on here because I thought hey, it would be fun for others to join in too! So here are the details to the challenge: The challenge will…

I’ve tended to stay away for BB creams, because no matter how many of them I’ve tried nothing really seem to match my skin perfectly.

I can’t promise that my new-found Olay exfoliator won’t someday suffer the same fate, however, at the moment I love it! I’ve had mixed results with Olay products.

    Want to land with your fine booty still in the saddle? Play pretend.   Horses are sensitive creatures. They are also big and tend to speed off in unexpected and unplanned directions when scared. Therefore, when your 100-plus-pound self is riding on its one-ton frame, it’s imperative to stay calm and controlled and confident. One day I was riding, and feeling squirrelly too, while headed off on a serpentine jumping course. I did not feel things would end well in my current state. I tried a bunch of pleas with Kate the riding instructor to avoid completing the course. She responded with…

    Many women reach for red when they're looking to make a statement, but for me it's always been coral. Something about the pinkish-orange hue strikes a chord with me — it's versatile, brightens the skintone, and is perfectly suited for warmer weather. So naturally, i've got coral on the brain as we move into the spring/summer months.When selecting the perfect shade, there's a lot of factors to keep in mind. Though it works for many different women, the color can fall short instantly if you're not sticking to a few basic principals:Watch your Undertones: Like a red lipstick, opt for a color…

  • MELT AWAY THAT WINTER SKIN

    Christina Marrale
    7 Apr 2014 | 12:26 pm
    After spending the majority of winter on the east coast, my skin is still in brutal shape. And although I am meticulous about keeping my hydration levels up and keeping the skin nourished, the bitter temperatures and two (yes, two) blizzards were simply no match for my routine.Now that we're only a few short weeks away from warmer temperatures (hopefully), I figured it was time to start sloughing off the effects of winter and transitioning my skin into spring. Below are a few staple products that i've been using to get me the results i've wanted, helping me rid my dull, dry winter complexion…
  • THIS OR THAT: CLEANING UP MY ACT

    Christina Marrale
    7 Apr 2014 | 11:42 am
    Lately I've been trying to minimize the amount of chemicals in my daily routine. It's tough, we're surrounded with toxins everywhere... from what we eat, clean our house with, wash our clothes in, right down to what we're putting onto our skin. It's overwhelming, but I've come to learn that small changes along the way help, and it can be unrealistic to just revamp your entire routine and household in a day.I started by writing up the products I use in my everyday routine, and running them through the EWG database. If your not familiar with the Environmental Working Group, it's a wonderful…

  • Blink and You’ll Miss Them: MAC Red Balloon and Head in the Clouds Lipsticks

    Amy
    19 Apr 2014 | 8:30 am
    I’m never sure whether to review here-today-gone-this-afternoon collections. These micro-releases sell out so quickly, that the posts become dated by the time that email distribution is complete. I’m going to try this one with some lipsticks from MAC Playland ($16 each). We had a major photo-fest, and I threw these into the mix because it only takes a few minutes. These are both still available via Nordstrom.com as of this posting. If experience is any guide, I can’t promise for how long. As you probably know. MAC Playland features colors that look uber-bright in the…
  • MAC Proenza Schouler Collaboration: Woodrose, Primrose and Mangrove Lipsticks

    Amy
    18 Apr 2014 | 5:26 pm
    MAC has collaborated with the genius design team Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, otherwise known as Proenza Schouler. I still remember the first time that I saw one of their bags–it was the softest deep green leather. The very sight of it–miles away on Barney’s sales floor–drew me in immediately. Their style is modern and classic, very urban with an edge. They make lovely, lovely things. I was able to find three of the lipsticks from the MAC Proenza Schouler collaboration that I can share with you–the nude Woodrose (a creamy Lustre), the sheer violet…
  • Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster Review

    Amy
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:53 pm
    One of my favorite makeup discoveries of this pre-summer season is Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster ($30/0.50 oz.). To use this product, you place 1-3 drops into the palm of your hand, mix with your current moisturizer or serum, and place over your face and neck just before going to sleep. In the morning, I am waking up to the most beautiful, subtle, natural looking soft tan. No streaking or orange, really it’s absolutely perfect. Clarins Golden Glow Booster is now available from Nordstrom.com (currently 10% off), Saks Fifth Avenue, and Sephora. When I first read…
  • My Thoughts: Packing Makeup for a Cross Country Move

    Amy

    I feel as though this post should come with a warning label. Something like, “Caution–the images you are about to see may be disturbing.” Yet I thought it useful to detail at least the first half of my experience moving my beauty products across the U.S. to a new home. I thought it would be useful in case anyone on the Internet, ever, has to undergo similar project.  After years of blogging, I’ve come to realize that I’m not the only person who truly loves makeup and have accumulated (ahem) more than a few items. By the end of April, I’ll be moving out of…
  • Skincare Sunday: Cafe Makeup Tries Oil Pulling

    Amy
    13 Apr 2014 | 10:22 pm
    Ever since Into the Gloss did a post on oil-pulling, the media has been buzzing about this ancient technique. Essentially, one holds an oil in the mouth for about 2-3 minutes (some say up to 20 minutes). Just like using an oil cleanser, the teeth and gums are cleansed. Others claim that this technique actually reduces plaque, whitens teeth, and reduces bacteria in the mouth.  Liz and I set to investigate. The braver of the two of us (Liz) started about a week ago using coconut oil. After seeing her results after only a week, I decided to jump in. I’d heard that coconut and sesame oils…

  • Retinol Facts – What Retinol Can Do for Your Skin

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    21 Apr 2014 | 1:41 pm
    Retinoids can work wonders to fight the signs of skin aging. I’ve used them for years in my dermatology practice.   The two forms of retinoids that I use most often are prescription retinoic acid (called tretinoin, which is found in Retin-A and Renova) and retinol. Retinol products are non-prescription, so you don’t need a trip to the doctor to add retinol to your anti-aging skin care routine. Are you wondering why you should add retinol to your skin care routine and what can retinol do for your skin?  Here’s what we know. Retinol FAQs Retinol is vitamin A. It is a member…

    Even though the official start of spring was late March, warmer weather is finally starting here in Northern California and other parts of the country. It’s time to break out your shorts, tanks, and sandals and to show off your skin! As Dr Bailey says in her original blog post, Tips to Spring Clean Your Skin, skin-baring fashions call for a good skin spring cleaning! After working hard to moisturize and to nourish your skin during the cold winter months, it’s time to focus on rejuvenating your skin through exfoliation.

  • Common Skin Problems for Moms and Families With Sensitive Skin

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.

    If your family has sensitive skin, you need to be especially careful about the skin care products that are stocked in the household. I’m a dermatologist and mother and in my household, we all have sensitive skin.  I’m careful about the skin care products that are in every bathroom and next to every sink in my home because it matters to the skin health of my family.  As a dermatologist I know the scientific facts about skin problems and as a mom I know that my kids want to try new products and my husband wants me to make budget friendly choices when I shop.  Here is how I try to…
  • Know Your Options for Anti-Aging Rosacea Skin Care: Find It Again Friday

    Angela
    11 Apr 2014 | 2:52 pm
    Do you have rosacea and have been searching for an anti-aging skin care routine? After a few phone call inquires regarding anti-aging rosacea skin care options, it is time to revisit Dr. Bailey’s blog post: Anti-Aging Skin Care Options for People with Rosacea. As Dr. Bailey notes, anti-aging skin care is especially tricky for rosacea-type skin because any strong acids or rough exfoliation can trigger a flare-up. However, Dr. Bailey has managed to help her rosacea patients not only get their rosacea under control, but also incorporate a gentle anti-aging rosacea skin care routine. For…

    Have you tried countless skin care products to fix the dark circles or bags under your eyes, but found nothing seems to work? Are you at the point of considering surgery to fix your under-eye issues? Waking up to find dark circles and puffy bags under your eyes almost seems like an omen for the rest of the day. However, depending on the causes of your under-eye circles and bags, there are various methods to nip this issue in the bud without surgery.

    Recently I tried out Benefit’s newest thing- The Big Easy Foundation. This is described as “Bigger than BB”, as it’s not quite a full coverage foundation, but does more than your standard BB Cream in the sense that it helps to moisturize as well as control oil, and give you a liquid-to-powder finish.  I did a first impressions review on this- applying it on camera and coming back later to show the wear. Granted, I really should have done this when I didn’t take a nap, as it didn’t hold up as well as it normally does, but pregnancy will bring unplanned naps :) Overall I really…

Her looks were stunning, her clothing was amazing, and her family was fantastic. However, the princess was always in a bad mood. She was usually miserable. She went to the wizard and asked him to cast a spell to keep her smiling all the time.

     I am NOT the queen of contouring. While I have tried on a few occasions to talk about contouring, I don't feel like a master contour professional like some Makeup Artists and Bloggers are. I am, however, a regular, normal person that wishes for sculpted cheeks and a jaw line made of stone, just like everyone else.In the past, I have had to use very light blushes to contour. Regular contour powders were too dark for my very fair skin. Alternatively many of my friends with dark skin had a problem finding contour powders that would even show up on their skin.

The mixture of Ivory, Pink, Marine Blue and Charcoal Grey are all frosty shades that blend well and have decent pigmentation.The shadows are not too soft and not too hard, but they can be slightly on the powdery side if you aren't careful with application. The shadows went on smoothly and lasted fairly well when I used an eyeshadow base underneath them.While the colors were pretty and I am able…

I guess the idea blossomed since this year's convention was a real delight. Tattoo artists came from Croatia, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil and (of course) Slovenia.

It's a pretty unique shade and I don't think I have anything like this in my collection. The formula was OK and the application didn't cause me any troubles. Since this polish has a jelly-like formula, it needs somewhere between 2 and 3 coats for full opacity. It all depends on your nail length and the light conditions. =)…

I recently tried Kreamie’s Collection Brown Sugar Body Scrub($16) made with raw brown sugar (of course), essential oils, vanilla and coconut oil. The scrub is gentle enough to use on your face and has just the right amount of oil to keep you skin moisturized. The key beauty ingredient is brown sugar which is beneficial for the skin.

    Skin in Need of a Boost? Simple Procedures with Significant Results I started getting acne when I was ten, and having skin struggles from a very young age gave me a bit of a complex about my complexion. I have never been much for hair, make-up or fashion, but will gobble up skin care products like nobody’s business. Our face is the focal point of our body, and even the least vain among us, want to look good and feel good about our appearance.

    There’s no doubt that the sexy, smoldering, elongated cat-eye is hot in beauty right now. We published a great tutorial on creating the coveted cat-eye back in January, with expert tips by my friend, makeup artist and mentor, Susan Markovic. Now it’s time to add a critical part of the equation into the mix: lashes! Lash Republic lashes, that is. Is there any other brand? Creative director of Lash Republic, Aleksandra Stefani, has her share of imitators, but the fact of the matter is that no one can compete with Lash Republic.

    I’ve been consciously coupling with lip products lately. I have a history of being horrible at lip products outside of lip balms. Anything with color used to make me paranoid and hyperaware of every move I made. I was so worried about my lip color smudging and looking  hooker-y (classy, I know) that I steered clear of anything that wasn’t, well, clear. I eased myself in at first with natural colors. You can’t tell I messed up my lipstick if it’s the same-ish color as my actual lips, right? Right! Now that I’ve mastered the natural look and don’t act like a…

I wear it every day without fail and always carry one around with me (just in case). The 3 Concept Eyes Super Slim Pen Eyeliner is one I picked up in HK along with a few other items from the range (separate reviews to follow!) So my first impression of the eyeliner was that I really like the packaging. The stylo has a semi matte feel so looks a lot more high end and sleek. I also liked the nib of the liner because while it’s thin, it’s also structured enough so…

  • Skin Care Shortcuts

    24 Apr 2014 | 6:23 am
    For most of us, our to-do list looks more like a three-ring binder. Between work, home and family, you may feel as if you don't have one free minute to devote to a skin care regimen. Making time for yourself is important, though — you'll be better able to handle what the day throws at you when you've taken a little time to care for yourself. We know how tough it can be, so we've put together eight skin care shortcuts — they'll help you cut a few steps from your beauty routine so that you can look and feel great while saving valuable time.

  • Plant Stem Cells for Anti-Aging

    23 Apr 2014 | 3:11 pm
    Stem cells from plants are one of the newest anti-aging ingredients. Plant stem cells have garnered attention because they are immortal, and who wouldn’t want some of that? As a cosmetic ingredient, plant stem cell technology is still new, lacks ample independent research to back it up and is dominated by the so-called “rare Swiss apple” stem cell. But there is a sense that we are at the cutting edge with new plant stem cells from lilac to edelweiss, all of which are backed by some clinical trials and a host of new anti-aging products that feature them. Here is a guide to…
  • Yarok Feed Your Youth Anti-Aging Hair & Scalp Serum

    22 Apr 2014 | 9:34 am
    Truth In Aging responded to my plea for some kind of treatment for my seriously winter-challenged and suddenly dry scalp and hair with a trial of Yarok Feed Your Youth Hair & Scalp Serum ($28.60 in the shop). I'm in my 50s, and after using this serum weekly for over a month, and I can recommend this very straightforward and moisturizing oil. First, as it was all new to me, I took a look at Yarok’s site. I learned that “yarok” means green in Hebrew and that the line, which includes a range of shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products, was founded by a hair…

  • Exclusive: A Peek Inside the Wayne Goss x Beautylish Pavilion from IMATS New York

    24 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    IMATS New York, aka the International Make-up Artist Trade Show—which was April 11–13—was quite a whirlwind. For the show, we teamed up with New York City–based design firm The Principals to create The Wayne Goss x Beautylish Pavilion. We spent months planning the concept, so that we’d have just the right creative, inspiring space in which to showcase Wayne’s makeup brushes. We loved having the opportunity to share them and all we’ve been working on with Wayne with everyone who came to IMATS. And for those of you who weren’t able to attend, we snapped pictures all weekend…
  • How to Play With Different Lip Shapes à la Kevyn Aucoin

    23 Apr 2014 | 11:00 am
    In his 1997 book Making Faces, Kevyn Aucoin tells the tale of his first childhood encounter with lipstick: “I remember climbing onto our bathroom counter and opening the medicine chest in search of my mom’s orange lipstick. Since smells can be deceiving (her tube had a distinct floral scent), I naturally decided to have a bite...” Needless to say, it didn’t go so well. But that was just one of many early, formative experiences that helped shaped Kevyn’s love of makeup—and in particular, lipstick. As an artist, he didn’t see limitations within a client or model’s natural-born…
  • The Automatic Hair Curler That’s So Worth Trying

    23 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    If computer printers can generate 3D toys and cars are close to driving themselves, then surely we can have a hair power tool that creates the perfect curl with little to no manual labor, right? Turns out such a tool already exists. Conair recently debuted the Infiniti Pro Curl Secret, which is not so much a curling iron as an ingenious device that effortlessly and automatically curls locks by way of a barrel in a hidden chamber. Even better, the built-in barrel made of tourmaline ceramic makes precise curls (you simply insert a small section into the tool, clamp the handles, and it does the…

    Is it just me or does there seem to be a rise in special "days" commemorating the randomest of things? Be it National Candied Orange Peel Day or Lumpy Rug Day, I can appreciate the idea that people are passionate about a wide range of things and every dog should have his day, as the saying goes. That being said, Earth Day is not one of those random holidays.

  • All I Want for Christmas Is a Really Nice Tan

    17 Dec 2013 | 7:54 pm
    The California girl in me still appreciates a Christmas spent in short sleeves, a Santa in a hideous Hawaiian print shirt, and a nice little tan. Maybe thinking about a tan around the holidays is just a longing for the unique joys only contained in the memories of Christmas past. Or perhaps I'm just feeling excited about finding a self-tanner that not only works to create a bronze glow instead of a Cheeto-glow but is also specially formulated for sensitive skin. Either way, I plan to take on this holiday season glowing by a fireplace.The Product St. Tropez Sensitive Bronzing Mousse and…

  • Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eyecolor Review

    Norah Salazar
    23 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
    For a couple of weeks, I’ve been testing out the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick eye color pencils. I am a fan of cream shadows mostly because they tend to be long wear with no need for a retouch AND you can build layers of color on top. Laura Mercier’s makeup finish is known for its “flawless face” approach, the colors and makeup should be so natural and hardly noticeable. With these sticks, I definitely feel an eye primer is a necessity. I tend to oil up on my lids so both occasions without an eye primer, the lid crease feathered. One thing I like is that the Laura…

    The CARGO Vintage Escape Eye Palette was a complete surprise. First things first, the packaging is stunning and so handy for travel. After swatching and doing a run through of the colors, I came to the conclusion that this is a comparable match to something like the UD Naked Palette. The CARGO Vintage palette offers colors that are more pigmented (the browns are lovely), while some not as bold as I had hoped for, like BlackCrow (black). The palette comes with a dual duty brush, on one side it is angled plus it is a blending brush. I would still use a separate applicator brush for the…

Opinions are TMC’s only.   All new 2014 Kia Soul   When I was told that the Kia Soul would be staying with us for a week during spring break, I became a little giddy. How much fun would this little car be to drive around with my girls while we did all our special activities during the week? Then, I panicked. Would I be able to fit three kids into the back of a Kia Soul? Too cute to sit in the driveway!   The answer is absolutely!  Yes, it is a little…
  • Pink & Blush for Spring

    22 Apr 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Without even realizing I wore a whole lot of pink in the last week. The girls were gone to their grandparents for a few spring break days giving H and I our own mini-break, which we desperately needed. I couldn’t remember the last time we had a cohesive conversation or just left the house at a moment’s notice. When I found myself sitting on the couch reading Elle magazine drinking coffee at 11 a.m. during the middle of the week with old episodes of American Horror Story playing in the background of an otherwise silent house, I felt my whole body relax. I wore a lot of cute stuff…

The powder room by the front door contains the most because I feel like I apply all sunscreen to the kids in the foyer before we head out the door, especially in the summer time. I do not like to run out either.  My preferred sunscreen is from Kiss My Face.  I have used it on myself for years and my only complaint with the kids was that there wasn’t a spray…

    This year I am all about going back to the basics. It is simple, classic style that never fades but can be punched up with a sprinkling of trends. By adding in a bit of today with all the traditional looks you can shop new places and discover a whole side of you and your closet that branches out into accessories and shoes too. It makes getting dressed each day a whole lot more fun!

    21 Apr 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturising Cream 40ml £24.40/$46I love Jurlique, it's one of my favourite brands as I mention on the blog quite often. Every product I've used has been outstanding but I will say I didn't really think this moisturiser was going to be any big deal, mainly because I didn't really believe the "Redness Rescue" part but also because its a very thin tube that I thought would be empty in about a week or two, which is not acceptable for creams that cost double figures, but I was so wrong. Firstly, for me, the soothing and redness relief was extremely…

Highlighters are the biggest culprits for this, there is never any need for a highlighter to be a regular powder compact size or larger, no lady is ever going to get through that amount of product before she goes off it or it goes off. For a product like a cream or powder highlighter, where you use a very small amount, in…

Which is why, for me, Clinique's new Shades of Beige nail varnish collection is the nuts. They are literally every neutral shade I could dream of and I love every single one of them. It's very much Sophie's choice picking my favourite, but I will say I'm not that keen on Room Service. I'm currently wearing Peek A boo and Birthday Suit on rotation, they just go with everything…

    Lee Ann
    24 Apr 2014 | 7:48 am
    Originally published as Skin Tone And Skin Care: The Connection from the Mario Badescu Skin Care Blog. Do darker skin tones need special skin care? Many of our clients are surprised to hear that no, skin tone is not the first (or second, or even third) thing we think of when determining which products will be the best for your skin. Considering that a) most skin care products are formulated to be color blind and b) the color of one’s skin does not determine skin type, focusing on products that will be helpful for the current condition of each individual’s skin will garner the best…

    Lee Ann
    22 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    Originally published as The Best Way To Exfoliate For Bright, Glowing Skin from the Mario Badescu Skin Care Blog. It is crucial to exfoliate on a regular basis to help speed up the skin’s natural cellular turnover (which slows as we age). A lack of exfoliation leads to a buildup of dead skin cells, which may yield one or more of the following: dull, dry, or flaky skin, acne breakouts, clogged pores, and uneven skin tone. For skin that glows… There are two ways to exfoliate: mechanically and chemically. Mechanical exfoliation involves physically removing dead skin cells, often with…

    Natalie
    4 Apr 2014 | 4:51 pm
    Chanel Amour GlossimerChanel Amour Glossimer ($29.50) is a vibrant coral pink with fine multi-colored shimmer. This color in my eyes is the definition of Spring/Summer, and is a fabulous shade to rock all season long. Much like Chanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick (in my previous post), it's a great color for those with warm, golden undertones and will brighten the face instantly. The coverage is light but buildable, and pairs really well on top of any pink, peach or coral lipstick and it also looks great all on it's own.Chanel Glossimers is one of my favorite formulas of lipgloss…

    Chanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine LipstickChanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35) which means "Smile" in French, is a soft pink with fine golden shimmer. It looks like a bright watermelon light pink in the tube, but once the color is applied, it's a sheer warm soft pink. It's a great universal shade especially on warm skin tones, as the golden bits gives the pink some added brightness, so it's not a pink that will wash you out. In fact, it's one of those perfect lipsticks that you can mindlessly toss in your bag for every day and it's so subtle that you can wear it on your no-makeup days…

      Hair thinning and hair loss are very common which everybody is eaten up of. In order to get rid of them everybody gets deceived by all the attractively advertised products which gives no benefit apart from the marketing of the product itself. All the primitive and conventional remedies work at the end which, besides curing, prove to be useful for enhancing the health of hair and above all they work without side effects. They can make you have thicker hair quickly.   Acacia Concinna Acacia Concinna is a small shrub-like tree, its fruit is mainly used for hair. The best way of using…

These are the three most common reactions to gray hairs that are now what you should do! 1. Don’t panic about your first gray hair! When one spots their first gray hair it isn’t one of life’s easiest experiences. It makes us face our age and mortality, which is not something that should be just shrugged off.

  • Hair tip alert: You need a hair detox!

    10 Apr 2014 | 9:15 pm
    Why does our hair regime need to include a detox? You may have heard of detoxes for your body, but have you ever heard of a detox for your hair? Consumers in the United States alone spend over 7 billion annually on hair care products filled with chemicals that remain on the hair as residue. Our hair is like a sponge that absorbs all of the products we use, and this residue will stay on stubbornly without a detox for the hair. This natural absorption is great at first when the product revitalizes our hair to make it appear more healthy and shiny. The problem is when the build-up of residue…

After several years of falling out of touch, we’ve recently reconnected and I’m absolutely loving just how radiant, bright, brave and truly fearless she has become.

    This post is about dimsum. And more than the little bamboo cases of dumplings and buns, it is about what “dim sum” really means – dim (touch) sum (heart): to touch the heart. I sat around a round table this afternoon with three friends who have known my pains and my joys, and everything that has made my heart sing and bleed. One of them had made it possible for me to leave a painful place; another gave me new ways of looking, feeling and loving; and the last who has only ever believed in the spark within me, no matter how dark things became. And so, after a long, slow,…

    I have a proper bedroom, but about five months ago, I decided to move into another tinier room and sleep on the sofa bed. There’s hardly any space in here—the room is filled with books and magazines, my desk, a hundred paper bags filled with things I’ve bought but haven’t put away (I like the surprise of discovering something brand new all over again a few months after I buy it). The door is only about four steps away from my bed but I still manage to trip myself as I walk. It’s so makeshift I almost feel like a student again. I don’t even have a proper bedside…

My mind does little hops and beats as it journeys its way through a new book (well, three new books). There is a newfound delight on each page. This Saturday I realised again that the best adventures are had when you’re just sitting quietly, unmoving, your head in a book. But I also get restless so on Sunday I felt I must get up and move.

I was so impressed with myself for being so upbeat that for the first time in a long time, I thought I’d take my own advice. And so, this Valentines’ Day has been the best one ever. Sans flowers, chocolates, mushy cards or any significant other.

    21 Apr 2014 | 7:34 am
    I don’t know about you but I am a big coconut oil fan. I put it on toast, occasionally use it as a makeup remover, put on the ends of my hair and have made a toothpaste out of it. I love it for a body moisturizer too. The possibilities are endless! I cook with it and use it to coat pans instead of spraying PAM or using butter. I keep two tubs of it in the house, one downstairs in the kitchen and one upstairs in my bathroom! Here’s what the experts have to say about this must-have, multi-use product!  Dr. Marc Lowenberg, Cosmetic Dentist of Lowenberg, Lituchy & Kantor an d…
  • Friday Book Talk: Sarah Jio’s new novel!

    Cindy
    18 Apr 2014 | 7:34 am
      This  was not a stellar week for reading. I checked out five books from the library and couldn’t get into any of them. I had several books downloaded to read (a real book is always my first choice) on my ipad and kindle but none of them struck a chord either. Don’t you hate that? I read some really good ones last week and I long to lose myself in another book soon. The one book I read that I can recommend to you isn’t out for a while. That’s the bad news. But you can mark it to-read if you are on Goodreads or add to your Amazon wishlist, its due out on May 27.

    So I’ve been told off a little recently by Sally, as apparently she is not appearing on the blog as much as she should be (her paws must have been working hard on the iPad again naughty doggy!), anyway I promised her a post all of her own, to share with you some of her favourite things in the Sally world. Blankets. Honestly I’m sure Sally’s brain runs in circles going ‘blankets. blankets. blankets. blankets’ while you straighten them after she has shuffled them all around in circles and then refuses to sit on them again as they are all messed up. She has one…
  • Be a Dragon with RebuildingSociety

    Are you a fan of Dragon’s Den, have you ever sat there thinking; I wonder what it is like to invest in a company, to help out a small business at a time of need, but worry about the fact you don’t have millions of pounds to loan out to someone? Well RebuildingSociety could be a website for you, they offer loans to small business, which are peer funded and allow you to help a business out with as little as £10. I am going to admit now I don’t do jargon – never have, for one thing I can’t spell half of it (thank you dyslexia) and I also feel like things should be…

    Have you ever wondered how observant your other half is? Would they notice if you were wearing a new lipstick or dress? Or would it take something like you dyeing your hair bright pink for them to notice something looks slightly different about you? I was contacted around a month to see if I fancied putting Ash to the test and see just how observant he is; the challenge I was set was putting together 3 tests, to see if he would notice any of the ‘different’ things I had done. Before I get onto what I did, let me tell you about Ash and just how his sight works, as it is in fact…

In our home we have a few different things often going on. To be honest with you Ash and I are both home bodies, so we do a lot of things around the house, we both love settling down to watch a good TV programme or film (in fact as I write this we have Criminal Minds on), I of course love blogging and reading while Ash is the gamer of the…

  • What is Looking Young Anyway?

    Meli Pennington
    8 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    Is this young enough?   As a makeup artist, I get lots of questions from people on how to look younger. Maybe it comes in the form of “How can I erase my wrinkles?” Or a person points to their least favorite facial attribute and says, “What should I do to get rid of this?” Or, “Should I get Botox to look younger?”   Mostly, I just say, “You look great”, because the answers are so complex, and life is short. But I’m realizing that these questions are based as much on confusion regarding what cosmetic antiaging can actually do as…

If you’re watching the 21st-century version of Cosmos on TV, you’ve noticed astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium director Neil deGrasse Tyson at his communicative best, bringing the wonder of science to the rest of us. The popularity of the series has landed him a slew of attention – much of it in the form of crush comments on Twitter. Being a nerdy sex symbol is amusing for the married father of two, and it’s nice to see intellect and interest trump abs of steel in the…
  • Makeovers in the Movies: Pretty Woman

    Meli Pennington
    1 Apr 2014 | 10:04 am
    Cinder-effin’-Ella There are makeover movies I love to love – and some I love to hate. Pretty Woman is definitely one I love to hate: it’s corny, and I don’t believe in that whole “White Knight coming to save you from your miserable life” version of love anyway.   But romantic movies aren’t about my social cynicism, and that’s a good thing. Pretty Woman is still one of the great makeover movies, and many of my friends (who I think should know better) love it. So off I go: instead of finding it midway on TV and moaning as I switch channels,…

It said it “sucks your blackheads and pimples out.” It looked so cool! As soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew I had to purchase it. I purchased mine for $69 from Sephora. I felt like that was a lot of money, but hey, if it works then it’s worth it…right? The first thing I did was make sure my face was clean.  I then applied a “thin layer,” like the directions said to do. It goes on dark gray and…

      As a self-professed beauty maven, I fully immerse myself into the magnificent world of appearances.  As I frequently tell my mother, “I want to look like I’m 25 when I’m 60.” So, when the opportunity arises for me to pay a visit to one of the exclusive Body Cosmetica affiliated centers, located on 87th and Madison, I jump on the offer. As the cab speeds to the entrance, I see gorgeous tree-lined streets and rustic pre-war apartment buildings, surrounding the center. Businessmen briskly walk by, waving their hands and talking animatedly on their gadgets. I am buzzed…
  • Plastic Surgery: The New Feminism?

    Ruth Umoh
    7 Apr 2014 | 1:57 pm
      Cosmetic surgery and feminism are often seen at opposite ends of the spectrum. The decision to “go under the knife” is a highly debated topic in the current women’s liberation movement. Some feminists view cosmetic surgery as bodily self-determination, while others see it as contorting the body to fit impractical and contrived standards of beauty. However, condemning individuals for undergoing plastic surgery in order to compete in a cultural ideology they themselves did not create is both counterproductive and damaging. Feminists have relentlessly been demonized as…

  • The True Beauty Vitamin? by Deb Chase

    Deb Chase
    24 Apr 2014 | 7:34 am
    Last week I received a simple question that did not have a simple answer– what  is the most important vitamin for my skin, the true beauty vitamin?   Just about every nutrient has been promoted for skin  health, but three  keep making the list: 1. Vitamin E- Vitamin E is a  powerful anti-oxidant found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and leafy green vegetables.  Studies have shown that  it can block free radicals and  ( in theory) reverse signs of aging.    There are also  suggetions that vitamin E   can reduce scar formation. But  sad to say the impact and benefit of…

    Cortisone gels and creams are another one of those treatment options that we love to hate.  When used properly under supervision from a health  care professional, cortisone can dramatically clear-up a wide range of skin  problems including, eczema, poison ivy or a red rash from who knows what. All cortisone products are not equal.  In the US there are actually seven  grades of strength.  The mildest  is known as hydrocortisone  which is even available without a prescription.   Betamethasone ( prescription only)   is considered a moderate cortisone and is 100X more  powerful than…

    Question: I followed  your advice and  started using Retin A  for signs of age — and now my skin is peeling.Does  this mean  its not good for my skin and I should stop using it? Answer: Oh no, don’t give up  just yet!  The peeling you see is the shedding of the top dead layer of skin cells that are clogging the pores and slowing down skin growth.   This is a  major benefit of Retin A and actually a sign that its  doing a good job.  However if the flaking is excessive and unsightly, we need to look at  how you are using Retin A.  Remember you need to avoid other…

    For a long time, I have lauded the efforts of L'Oreal with their rather revolutionary L'Oreal Youth Code line, which was one of the first products to include probiotics, like Bifida ferment lysate. While this was considered to be cutting edge by most and hokey by some in 2009, concurrent research at the time demonstrated that use of probiotics can strengthen the skin from the inside out (Experimental Dermatology, 2009) by strengthening the skin's resistance to outside stressors. This is particularly useful for those with conditions like eczema or psoriasis, but can also be beneficial for…

Whether someone is dying their hair for the sake of changing their color or style, or simply coloring out the grey, a large amount of people put dye in their hair more than a few times a month.

    Children’s skin usually looks virtually flawless. That soft, supple feeling of youthful skin becomes harder and harder to maintain as we get older. Because the skin is the first point of contact to the outside world and to damaging environmental factors, age-related changes in our bodies are often reflected on its surface first. Certain skin conditions—like psoriasis, eczema, and even acne—also become more prevalent with aging, and can leave skin feeling dry, itchy, and swollen. It’s hard to look younger when your skin is so irritated. Here’s what it comes down to: younger skin…

    24 Apr 2014 | 2:48 am
    Have you been harboring a secret desire for someone you believe thinks of you only as a friend, Pisces? Don't be surprised if you learn differently today.
