A Look Back at Oscar de la Renta’s Best Dresses

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 21 Oct 2014

Oscar Arístides de la Renta Fiallo (1932-2014) has left a
big mark on the fashion world and created gorgeous couture gowns for six
decades. After finding international fame in the 1960s, the award-winning
designer created collections for Arden, Balmain and Lanvin, while also developing
his eponymous label.

Oscar de la Renta was inducted into the Coty Hall of Fame, served as the President of the Council of Fashion Designers of America
twice, in the ‘70s and in the ’80s, and was honored with the CFDA Lifetime
Achievement Award. However, the most important part of his legacy is his vision
of fashion.

“Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A
runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well
dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good
balance and good common sense,” the designer once said, quoted by the New York
Times.

Discover a few of Oscar de la Renta’s best dresses that
perfectly capture his unique sensibilities of color and shape, that made him a
hit with everyone from Oprah and Taylor Swift to Jacqueline Kennedy and Hillary
Clinton.

Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”, a tribute to gorgeous ‘90s cool girl fashion. Plaid and

BCBG Max Azria Spring 2014 Collection

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 06 Sep 2013

The BCGB Max Azria spring 2014 collection marks a special moment in the history of the label. Next year, the brand will celebrate its 25th anniversary, so the designers consulted the archives to see which of the pieces are still relevant today and got inspired to create fashion items that beautifully reflect the brand’s aesthetic DNA. The new line was carefully analyzed from the front row by socialites Heidi Klum, Estelle, Selita Ebanks and Olivia Palermo.

BCGB Max Azria’s spring 2014 collection brought relaxed silhouettes, many utilitarian pieces with a masculine flair and occasional bohemian influences. Still, regardless of the influences behind a particular outfit, the style perspective was clear: easy to wear and effortlessly chic designs were the label’s focus. There were a lot of boxy shapes, especially in the first half of the collection and it seemed that the focus was placed on versatility from a chromatic standpoint, with only a few animal prints to bring a subtle contrast.

As the show progressed however, things took a feminine turn. The declared intention for the new BCBG Max Azria SS 2014 line was “to make women feel pretty”, so the line included plenty of lightweight fabrics such as chiffon and silk and plenty of gorgeous watercolor floral prints. There were certain sexy accents such as deep V necklines or strategic sheer accents, but overall, the focus was on an elegant, ladylike allure instead of overly bold, sexy accents that could easily prove out of many women’s comfort zone.

Catherine Malandrino for Kohl’s Lookbook

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 06 Sep 2013

The new Catherine Malandrino for Kohl’s collection will only hit the stores later this month. The French designer promised that it would bring the eclectic spirit of Paris in its new feminine creations when the news was first announced. A quick glimpse at the new limited edition collection proves that she not only delivered on her promise, she actually exceeded expectations if you ask us, as these pieces radiate Parisian chicness.

Speaking about the new line, Don Brennan, Kohl’s chief merchandising officer, stated that the new line revolves around affordable pieces with a timeless allure:

Catherine Malandrino For Kohl's Collection
Catherine Malandrino For Kohl's Lookbook

“Our DesigNation collection from Catherine Malandrino blends Catherine’s feminine style and recognizable silhouette into wearable, timeless designs that allow women to express their personality at an exceptional value. We are confident the line will appeal to our customers and continue to position Kohl’s as the premier style destination they have come to expect.”

Catherine Malandrino’s Kohl’s collection features chic tees with the slogans such as “Paris, je t’aime” or “Paris mon amour”, a myriad of chic monochrome short dresses and pleated skirts, edgy motorcycle jackets and several pleather tops and skirts with intricate abstract patterns for a trendy flair. However, the piece de resistance of the new line is definitely a Parisian variation on the LBD which features the Eiffel Tower symbol in the back.

Heidi Klum’s Craziest Halloween Costumes

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 06 Oct 2014

Husbands came and went, but Heidi Klum’s Halloween party is
a pretty constant tradition for the supermodel and “Project Runway” host. The
German-born beauty puts a lot of thought into her costumes, and tops herself
almost every time.

“I start thinking of ideas months before Halloween, and I
have an amazing team who makes the impossible possible. I don’t really have a
system for picking my costume each year, they just kind of come to me. It’s
definitely not a last-minute decision. It takes months of preparation,” Klum
told Parade magazine.

Check out Heidi Klum’s craziest Halloween costumes in
anticipation of the stunning idea she’ll probably pull out for this year’s
Halloween party.

Erin Fetherston Spring 2014 Collection

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 06 Sep 2013

The Erin Fetherston spring 2014 collection was recently revealed at the label’s Tribeca studio in New York. Inspired by her wedding, which took place in Barbados earlier this summer, the designer created a variety of romantic yet flirty dresses for the “ultimate garden party”. The happy event and the exotic location seem to have brought her a renewed sense of optimism and playfulness which were reflected in her exquisite creations, especially if we consider the dominant color palette of the new line.

Bright lime, coral and hot pink were the colors of choice for the some new line’s most interesting creations, however gowns in tones of white, navy or light blue brought an additional refined touch to the new collection. The designer opted for classic silhouettes and lightweight fabrics like organza and lace for an elegant allure but brought a youthful vibe through interesting textural details, particularly with ruffles, which proved to be Fetherston’s favorite motif for spring 2014. If her short dresses are mostly directed to a younger crowd, her floor sweeping gowns are timeless enough to work for more than one age group.

The Erin Fetherston spring 2014 RTW line is much more different compared to the spring 2013 line, not only in terms of inspiration but also in terms of style approach. The designer seems determined to explore her biggest strengths, focusing on what she knows best: creating elegant gowns that never fail to steal the spotlight. The brand’s growing popularity seems to indicate that she has finally uncovered the style desires of her most loyal customers.

Miley Cyrus Talks About Her VMAs Performance

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 04 Sep 2013

Miley Cyrus’ performance at the 2013 VMAs made headlines and got people talking for days after the event, but the star kept a surprisingly low profile… up until now. There were statements that she “couldn’t be happier with the performance” released shortly after the event but not much else. However, Miley finally spoke about the VMAs performance in a brief interview for MTV and shed light on the reasoning behind the intensely criticized number.

So, why did she decide to show up in raunchy lingerie, use a giant foam hand as a prop and give a visual representation of “twerking” (a word recently added to the Oxford dictionary, btw)? To make history, obviously. “You’re wanting to make history. Me and Robin [Thicke] the whole time said ‘You know you are about to make history right now?’”, she stated adding that she’s delighted that her duet got people talking: “It is an amazing thing that I think now it is three days later and people are still talking about it.”

Miley Cyrus Twerking At 2013 Vm AsMiley Cyrus Vm As 2013

According to her, all she did was follow the footsteps of Britney and Madonna, who caused similar controversy in their time of glory: “You know now… you know what’s happened. Madonna’s done it, Britney’s done it. Every VMAs performance, anyone that performs…that’s what you are looking for.”

Stick to Cash

Charging everything to your credit card or going for store
credit can certainly help you buy what you want right now, but it’s not the

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfect Skin
Published On 28 Sep 2014

If you’re prone to breakouts, you should stay clear of all the
major pore clogging ingredients, even if they’re listed 7th or 10th
on the packaging. Find out which ones score a 5 out of 5 on the comedogenic
scale and should never touch your skin.

Here are the worst pore clogging ingredients that you should
avoid in all your cosmetics. From oils and alcohols that are bad for your skin
to sulfates and botanical extracts, check out a few major no-nos for acne prone
skin.

and healing effects, wheat germ oil also scores a 5, the top mark on the list

and can even help maintain your skin’s elasticity by aiding collagen formation,

What to Do When His Friends Don’t Like You

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 28 Sep 2014

If you’re hoping for a long-term relationship, getting along
with your boyfriend’s friends is very important. Thinking that you can just
phase them out of his life rarely ends up as a success story, so you should
be more focused on dealing with the situation.

Here’s what to do and what not to do when his friends don’t
like you, from trying to connect with them the right ways to asking for help
when you’re really getting frustrated about the situation.

Are You Sure They Don’t
Care for You?

There are plenty of reasons why his friends aren’t invested
in connecting to you right away, and most of them aren’t personal. If your guy
has a lot of relationships, they simply might not want to invest their time in
you when they think you’ll out of the picture soon enough. Ex-girlfriends his
friends loved are another obstacle, but you shouldn’t automatically assume they
hate you just because they seem a bit cold when you first meet them.

Can You Fix a Relationship That Moved Too Fast

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 28 Sep 2014

Whirlwind romances sometimes last a lifetime, but many other
times, they end up with a very quick and unexpected break up. Moving too fast
in your relationship can actually shorten the “honeymoon phase” and draw
attention to incompatibilities that would be easier to fix if things moved
slower in the first place.

It’s not easy to fix a relationship that moved too fast, but
if you’re really into your partner, then here are a few tips that you can
employ to solve the problem without pushing your guy away for good.

Be Honest With
Yourself

Before you talk to your partner about slowing down, it’s
important to really analyze your own reasons for wanting it. If you skip too
many steps in a relationship you can certainly have trouble later on, but “moving
too fast” can also be code for having bad feeling and refusing to accept major
incompatibilities that were revealed by sharing too much too soon.

Discuss the Problem

How to Treat Red Eyes

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
Published On 28 Sep 2014

Medical conditions like conjunctivitis and blepharitis can
start out with red, bloodshot eyes, but when the change is very gradual, you’re
probably just dealing with dryness or maybe even allergies that haven’t been
diagnosed yet.

Find out how to treat red eyes when the symptoms are slow to
develop and they’re limited to more visible blood vessels on your cornea. If
you have any other symptoms, from fever and irritated eyelids to light sensitivity or vision issues, you should consult a doctor.

Apply Cold Compresses

The easiest remedy for bloodshot eyes is a cold compress.
They don’t just have a constricting effect on the blood vessels, but they can
also impact fluid retention in the eye area. Slices of cucumber won’t do, you
should use a washcloth with ice water, or for an even more refreshing effect,
keep used teabags in the refrigerator for mornings in which you wake up with
red eyes.

Try Artificial Tears

Over the counter artificial tears are also an excellent
answer to the question of how to treat red eyes. They’re particularly useful
when you’re dealing with eye dryness. Lubricating eye drops should always be
used according to the recommendations on the packaging, since they won’t have
the intended effect if you underuse them.

Worst Foods to Eat After Working Out

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 24 Sep 2014

Eating less calories than how many you’ve just burned during
your workout is a no-brainer, but where those calories come from counts just as
much. Carbs and protein should be the biggest parts of your first meal after a
workout.

Fatty foods are among the worst foods to eat after working
out, but there are more restrictions your should know. Besides paying attention
to portion control, you’ll also have to choose what you eat carefully.
Rewarding yourself with food after a workout is a bad idea, since the things
that you’re probably craving the most aren’t so good for your body right after
you leave the gym.

Fast Food

French fries are one of the worst choices you could make,
but all fast food should be avoided after exercising. The reason you should
stay away from all fatty foods, especially those rich in saturated fat, is that
your digestion will slow down, allowing for more fat storage, so banish fast
food after leaving the gym as one of the worst foods to eat after working out.

Raw Vegetables

Even though they seem like a great idea for a snack after a workout,
raw vegetables are a bad idea, for very different reasons than fatty foods. They
simply don’t provide enough calories to help your muscles bounce back and keep
your energy levels up. If you absolutely want to munch on some celery or carrot
sticks, add a high-protein dip to them, either a natural unsweetened yogurt,
hummus, or even a nut butter.

How to Deal With the Silent Treatment

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 24 Sep 2014

Interrupting any form of communication is a way that many couples
deal with conflict, but experts agree it’s a really bad idea and it has no place
in a healthy relationship. If your partner refuses to communicate after an
argument, here’s how you should handle the situation.

It’s not easy to deal with the silent treatment, but with
the right advice you can make it a lot less hurtful. Discover the right way to
react to it and find out how to talk to your partner about retiring it from
your relationship altogether.

Don’t Let It Get to
You

The reasons your man gives you the silent treatment can vary.
Sometimes it’s used as a way to hold back anger and avoid a huge arguments,
other times it’s a punishment that’s supposed to be really hurtful. Regardless
of the reason, it’s not something you can control, so the only solution is
staying in a positive place and avoid letting yourself get affected by it. Try
listening to your favorite music or exercising in order to focus on something
else.

Avoid Returning It

No matter how you choose to deal with the silent treatment,
it’s very important to do whatever you can to eliminate it from your relationship.
The very first step for that is never using it yourself. If you need to cool
off or some space, tell your partner in a calm and warm voice that you’d really
appreciate a little time with your thoughts. If you use it as a weapon against
your partner, the same way he uses it against you, there’s only one loser: your
relationship.

10 Life-Changing Diet Hacks

Published On 23 Sep 2014

Staying motivated when you’re dieting can prove difficult,
but with a few simple tips, you can improve your weight loss efforts and make
your dietary restrictions a little more manageable.

Check out some of the best diet hacks, and use them to get a
little boost in your weight loss plan. From a few simple habits to streamlining
the way you eat, these hacks will definitely help you make dieting easier and a
bit more effective.

Don’t Start Eating
Without a Glass of Water

Many people confuse thirst and hunger, so they’re tempted to
eat when they’re actually getting dehydrated. Even if that doesn’t happen to
you, a glass of water before every meal is one of the best weight loss life
hacks, because it can help you eat less. Starting your meals with a soup or
salad can have a similar effect.

Add Cinnamon to Your
Breakfast

One of the best diet hacks you can start using right now if
you eat cereal for breakfast is adding cinnamon to a starchy breakfast. If a
teaspoon sounds like too much, aim for at least half a teaspoon. What can
cinnamon do for you? Numerous studies have highlighted that it can stabilize
blood sugar. That means you’ll be a lot less likely to feel hungry and choose
the wrong snack before lunch.

10 Ways to Get Longer Lasting Hair Color

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
Published On 22 Sep 2014

Even if you color your hair at the maximum allowed
frequency, you might still have to deal with color fading or changing before your
next coloring appointment. However, fading isn’t always inevitable, and you can
always postpone it with a few great tips.

Find out how to get longer lasting hair color by using the
right products and developing the right habits to keep your shade vibrant for
longer. From the preparation before coloring to the way you shower, here’s what
you can do to extend the life of your color.

1. Always Use a
Clarifying Shampoo Before Coloring

If you don’t get rid of all the product build-up before you
color your hair, you really can’t expect it to last. Use a clarifying shampoo
twice in the week before you’re getting your hair colored in order to make sure
that the color will stick to each hair for longer.

2. Only Use Hair
Products for Colored Hair

This seems like a no-brainer for anyone who wants to get
longer lasting hair color, but few make sure to always travel with their
shampoo for colored hair or wonder if the hair mousse they’re using is good for
the color. Your shampoo and conditioner have to be color safe, but any product
that goes on your hair should be carefully considered.

3. Aim for Less Frequent
Shampooing

How to Deal With Different Sleep Schedules

A good night’s sleep is important to manage stress levels
and avoid any unnecessary tension in your relationship. When you have to deal with
different sleep schedules than your partner, you’re not only risking upsetting
your sleep, you might also run into emotional issues.

Find out how to reach compromise when it comes to sleeping
patterns and make the best out of a bad situation. Whether you and your partner
have jobs that demand different sleep schedules, or you simply prefer snoozing
at different times, here’s how to deal with the problem.

Assess the Impact on
Your Relationship

Sometimes different sleep patterns can just be a small
inconvenience, other times they can affect both your sexual and emotional fulfillment.
If your sex life has suffered or if you miss the emotional connection of going
to bed at the same time, you have to start working on the issue quickly. Even
if the impact is limited to the quality of sleep, that can still mess with your
stress hormones and make you more likely to have a fight with your partner.

P&G To Remove Controversial Ingredients by 2014

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
Published On 31 Aug 2013

P&G Beauty is striving to stop using potentially harmful cosmetic ingredients by next year. P&G, the parent company of popular brands like CoverGirl, Herbal Essences and SK-II will eliminate phthalates and triclosan from all of its products. Currently, 70 percent of all the products produced by the company are phthalates and triclosan free.

There is some evidence that these ingredients can pose risks to respiratory and thyroid systems, but it is still unclear whether the small concentrations in which these ingredients are used are enough to cause harmful effects or not, but given the fact that these can be found in everything from shampoos to fragrances, the findings were worrisome, which is why many companies found ways to eliminate these ingredients from their products.

Controversial Ingredients Removed From P G Products

Dr.Scott Heid, Ph.D., P&G Communications noted that the measure is meant to offer safer options for worried customers: “While the only phthalate we used in our product formulations is safe (DEP), we know that there is the potential for people to confuse DEP with other phthalates that are banned from certain product types. We want people to also feel safe about using our products and not have any misperceptions about the product ingredients we use.”

10 Worst Curly Hair Care Mistakes

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
Published On 20 Sep 2014

There’s little doubt that curly hair needs a lot more
attention and care than naturally straight hair, but even if you have the best
intentions, you might still fall victim to a few common errors that are bad for
your curls.

Check out the worst curly hair care mistakes, and find out
how to avoid them in order to keep your hair in top shape every day. Fight
frizz and dryness and get the definition you want by making sure that you’re
not falling in either of these curly hair care traps.

1. Letting Your Curls
Dry Out

While some moisturizing products can get too heavy, most
help give your curls all the moisture they need without weighing them down. If
you use good moisturizing products, from your shampoo to your styling cream,
you’ll be a lot more confident about keeping your curls hydrated throughout the
day.

2. Giving Up Shampoo
Completely

While co-washing can certainly help keep your hair in shape,
giving up shampoo completely is one of the worst curly hair care mistakes you
can make. If you want to wash with conditioner, do it every other time, but don’t
say no to shampoo on principle. Instead, find one that’s designed for curly
hair, with extra moisturizing power.

3. Not Sticking to a
Good Routine

10 Signs You’re Dating a Cheater

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 20 Sep 2014

When your instinct is telling you something’s off, you’re
probably right. No matter how careful they are, cheaters usually raise a few
red flags at the beginning of a relationship.

Discover the most obvious signs you’re dating a cheater, and
put your man to the test. If he’s only displaying one or two signs, don’t jump
to any rash conclusions. But if he ticks most of the boxes, you might just be
dating the wrong guy, who’ll cheat and hurt you in the end.

1. He’s Too Secretive or
Mysterious

You can’t expect someone to be a completely open book after
just a couple of dates, but if you’re weeks or months into the relationship and
he’s more secretive than most, he might just have something to guide. Some men
like to cultivate an air of mystery without any ulterior reason, but most
usually like to use it in order to cover their tracks when they’re cheating.

2. You’ve Caught Him
Lying

One of the most obvious signs you’re dating a cheater is
that you already know he’s a liar. When he’s making up excuses which are
verifiably untrue, it might be more than little white lies. Whether he’s a good
or bad liar, when you catch him lying more than once, be careful.

How to Get Out of a Toxic Relationship

Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
Published On 18 Sep 2014

Realizing your relationship is toxic can make breaking up
easier, but moving on from someone who makes you feel unaccepted or anxious is
a step you absolutely have to make, the sooner the better.

Find out how to get out of a toxic relationship, from
finding the courage to surrounding yourself with people who can help. If your
partner is taking a lot from you emotionally with or without giving anything
back, here’s how to start the process of recovery for yourself.

Get in Touch with
Your Emotions

The first thing you need to do is accept that your significant
other is the reason for your misery. If you feel criticized or controlled in a
way that’s clearly negative, embrace that. Healthy relationships are based on
mutual respect and support. If you’re not getting that, and instead you find
yourself subjected to a judgmental or belittling attitude, accept that the
relationship is toxic and it has to end.

How to Turn Down a Date…Nicely

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 17 Sep 2014

Whether a stranger is hitting on you in a bar or you get a
date request on your online dating profile, turning it down isn’t always easy.
If you care about being polite and not hurting anyone’s feelings, here’s how to
turn down a date in the best ways.

Being unclear about your rejection doesn’t help, but being
mean is also a bad idea. Find out how to say “no” to a date without adding any
humiliation or other negative emotions to the rejection.

Never Say “Maybe” If
You Mean “No”

Turning someone down easy doesn’t mean sneaking in a “maybe”
when what you’d really like to say is “no”. Take a moment to get your thoughts
together and be honest. Blurting out anything that sounds like a “maybe” might
make him redouble his efforts to convince you and make the final rejection even
more unpleasant for everybody.

Mean

Best Foods to Eat for Dry Skin

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 17 Sep 2014

Staying hydrated is important for your skin, but dry skin is sometimes missing important
nutrients as well, not just moisture. The best foods for dry skin include
plenty of water, along with vitamins, sulfur and other important minerals that
have a positive effect on skin dryness.

Find out which foods can make the biggest difference for
your skin when you’re ready to accept that your diet plays an important part in
the way your skin looks and feels.

Avocado

Vitamins are very important for a beautiful skin, and
avocados deliver a great mix of antioxidants, including vitamins C and E. They’re
also rich in monounsaturated fats, which can make a big difference for your
skin’s level of moisture. These healthy fats won’t just get your skin moisturized,
they can also help lock in moisture.

Orange Fruits and
Vegetables

Vitamin A is just as important, so a few of the best foods
for dry skin are orange fruits and vegetables, high in beta-carotene, which is
transformed into vitamin A by your body. From cantaloupe, papaya, mango, and
pumpkin to carrots, butternut squash and sweet potatoes, make sure that these
fruits and veggies get their due in your diet.

Published On 16 Sep 2014

After picking the right fall trends that work best for your
figure and style, take a look at the way you’re wearing your outfits, in order
to avoid a few style mistakes that might end up ruining your look.

look your best as the weather transitions. From keeping a few summer staples
around for too long to making some uninspired color choice, here are the style
errors you should stay away from this fall.

1. Keeping Your Summer
Style Around

Sandals and strappy shoes should be the first to go, along

wardrobe until next year, keeping around just the neutral pieces that don’t
scream “summer”.

Essie will be launching a professional gel nails service this October. All signs point to the fact that the gel nail polish trend is here to stay and the brand aims to be a leader in this fast-growing segment. In order to achieve the ambitious goal, the label has made investments in both technology and service, according to Gerald Densk, Essie’s general manager for the professional products division of L’Oréal USA who told WWD that:

“This is our first technology-driven launch into the professional market. Gels are a significant market and they aren’t slowing down. To be a quality player, we have to be in the service that’s getting the most attention, the number-one service in the professional nail arena.”

To achieve the ambitious goal, the brand researched the most common complaints concerning gel nails and attempted to tackle them. As a result, the label focused on solving the most common problem associated with gel nail polishes: weak nails.

The Essie Gel range, which consists of 36 gel nail polish tones aims to deliver not only long lasting shine and an intense color for 14 days straight, but also to strengthen the nails thanks to the keratin technology, the pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin E included in the formula.

How to Avoid Arguing with Your Partner

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 15 Sep 2014

Always keeping the peace in your relationship is only a good
thing if you do manage to find solutions to conflicts without fighting about
it. The process might be easier than you think, as long as both of you are
willing to work at it.

Find out how to avoid arguing with your partner by using a
few simple solutions, that won’t gloss over the issues and let them turn into
major frustrations. When you’re having a disagreement, here’s how to solve it
without arguing.

Accept That Nobody
Wins an Argument

While feeling like you’re right is very pleasant, there’s
really no victory. If you’re interested in the future of your relationship,
there’s really nothing to be gained by considering arguments a win or lose
scenario. Without proclaiming you’re right, you’re more likely to keep negative
emotions to a minimum in your relationship by finding a compromise that works
without hurting anyone’s feelings.

Make an Effort to
Emphatize More

The easiest answer to the question of how to avoid arguing
with your partner is simply putting yourself in their shoes. The worst arguments
in a relationship usually occur when either one or both partners is tired or
stressed out. Instead of aggressively defending your position, which you naturally
feel is right, try to see things from your partner’s perspective and figure out
his reasoning for believing he’s completely right.

Always Aim to Talk
Lower Than Your Partner

When you’re wondering how to stop PMS cravings, the best
place to start is to make sure you’re getting enough nutrients. Once that’s

more ideas on how to say no to premestrual cravings.

From your eating habits to choosing the right snacks that
give you the maximum satisfaction with the least amount of calories, here’s
what to do when you’re struggling with cravings before your period.

of Daily Meals

Sticking to three meals a day and the occasional snack is
not the way to go when you want to discover how to stop PMS cravings. Instead, try
eating up to six smaller meals throughout the day. 

If you eat something every
three hours, you’re already helping your metabolism burn more fat, but this
habit can also help keep hunger pangs and cravings at bay.

Deficiency

Speaking about the ways in which her approach changed over the years, the star told WWD: “When I did my first fragrance, Glow, I didn’t really think much beyond making it the best, most beautiful fragrance ever created. On the other hand, “with number 20, it’s a landmark. I asked myself, ‘Who am I and what do I encompass?’ My message has always been love, whether it’s my music or my movies or whatever. It’s such a big part of who I am. We decided to call it JLove for that very reason, because it encompasses everything about me in one simple little word.”

The JLove perfume is a fruity floral scent created by the star in collaboration with perfumer Honorine Blanc. It is defined by top notes of white raspberry, frozen pineapple, pink grapefruit and tangerine, a heart of coconut orchid, water lily and Tahitian tiare and base notes of vanilla, white wood and musk. According to the 44 year old singer, the new scent is simultaneously glamorous and sexy: “Sometimes I’ll have an idea and be all, ‘Oh, I love this, the way a plant in my backyard smells and how the woods smell, after it’s been raining,’ and I’ll give them those types of ideas. With this one, we created a scent that’s glamorous and kind of sexy at the same time.”

Is Your Relationship Ready for a Pet?

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 14 Sep 2014

Taking your relationship to the next level after moving in
together can mean a lot of thing, including a pet. However, before you decide
to adopt a puppy, kitten or any other kind of pet there are a few questions you
need to ask yourself and your boyfriend or fiancé.

If you really want to make sure that your relationship is ready
for a pet, here are the answers you need to provide before making this big
commitment.

Do You Both Want It?

If you’re not on the same page when it comes to wanting a
pet, things can get tricky. When one partner wants freedom to travel and no fur
on any clothes or furniture and the other wants a fuzzy friend, getting a pet
might not be the best idea. Even if you decide to be the primary caretaker of
your new pet, make sure that your significant other is up for it.

About the Responsibilities?

10 Scary Facts You Didn’t Know About Sugar

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 14 Sep 2014

The American Heart Association recommends no more than 20
grams of sugar per day for adult women, and 36 for men. A can of regular Coke
includes no less than 39 grams of sugar, the equivalent of 10 sugar cubes. Consumed
in excess, sugar doesn’t just contribute to type 2 diabetes, it can also have
many unwanted effects on your body.

Discover a few facts you didn’t know about sugar, and decide
for yourself if the dangers of eating too much outweigh the pleasure of a sugar rush.

1. It Can Turn Into an
Addiction

Causing a massive dopamine release in your brain’s reward
center, sugar can be addictive for many people, and is one of the leading
causes of childhood obesity. 

Researchers at James Cook University discovered
that for mice, sugar water is even more attractive than cocaine. For humans,
the addiction can be subconscious, leading many to purchase brands of foods
with the highest sugar content without even realizing it or overeating
desserts.

10 Biggest Fitness Mistakes You Might Be Making

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Exercises
Published On 11 Sep 2014

Going to the gym can have different results for different
people, based on the quality of the workout. Check out a few errors that can
work against your progress and make workouts harder.

Once you know how to avoid the biggest fitness mistakes, you’ll
be able to maximize your workout potential and lose weight or gain muscle a lot
more efficiently. Here are the most common bad fitness choices that you might
be making without realizing it.

1. Working Out without a
Plan

Going to the gym without a proper plan on how to work out
the muscle groups you need in order to achieve the desired results is a really
bad idea. Winging it will only delay progress. Start by setting out your goals
and making sure that you follow a plan that helps you get results.

progress, you’re risking getting discouraged.

Best Foods to Eat When Sick

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 11 Sep 2014

When you’re sick, proper nutrition is very important, since
it can mean the difference between helping your immune system fight the
infection quicker and your body get over the symptoms or putting an obstacle in
the way of your recovery.

Check out a few of the best foods to eat when sick, whether
you’re dealing with a fever, a stomach flu, a cold, or even allergies. They can
boost your immunity or soothe your stomach, helping you recover faster. Forget
about “starving a cold”, and make sure that you give your body all the right nutrients.

Broth-Based Soup

Soups are the best homemade cold and flu remedy. With
anti-inflammatory properties, a warm bowl of chicken soup can help with
congestion, while also keeping you hydrated when you’re sick. It’s all thanks
to cysteine, an amino acid found in chicken, which can make a big difference
when you’re dealing with a respiratory infection.

Best Eating Habits of the Skinny

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 09 Sep 2014

If you’re struggling to lose weight or keep it off, restrictive
diets may not be the best way to reach and keep your ideal weight. Instead,
healthy eating habits can lead to sustainable weight loss, and skinny people
are a good place to start.

Take a look at a few of the best eating habits of the skinny,
which might help you lose the extra pounds or simply stay at your target weight
without having to resort to diets with severe calorie restrictions.

Focus on Eating

Step away from any screen whenever you’re having a meal or a
snack. Multi-tasking is the wrong way to go when it comes to eating. Without
enjoying your food, you’ll feel less full, even if your stomach is at the
limit. Enjoy every bite and you’ll get a much more filling sensation, plus you’re
more likely to exercise natural portion control and not overeat.

Published On 08 Sep 2014

Created by the National Institutes of Health’s National
Cholesterol Education Program and endorsed by the American Heart Association,
the TLC diet plan is focused on lowering “bad” cholesterol. Similar to the DASH
Diet and Ornish Diet, the Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes Diet offer a very
heart-healthy approach to losing weight.

If you’re looking for a healthy long-term diet, it can
definitely deliver a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, but it can’t match
the more dramatic results of other diets. Before embarking on this lifestyle
change, find out more about the TLC diet pros and cons, a diet available to
everyone through the “Your Guide to Lowering Your Cholesterol with TLC” diet PDF. 

Pros of the TLC Diet

Besides all the health benefits, the Therapeutic Lifestyle
Changes Diet won’t leave you hungry and it won’t cost you a lot to follow. It’s
also flexible, and it works better for dieters who already know how to read
nutritional labels and keep calories in check.

Nutritionally Sound
and Government Endorsed

One of the biggest pros of the TLC diet is the fact that it respects
all the National Institutes of Health guidelines for a nutritious diet that
will lower cholesterol and doesn’t eliminate any food groups. However, fatty
meats and dairy are restricted to deliver results.

10 Dating Rules You Should Break

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 08 Sep 2014

There are a lot of useful old school dating rules that
increase the success of a good matching, but many are outdated and can end up
doing more harm than good. Instead of playing games, be yourself at the start
of the dating process, and you’ll have a much higher chance at finding the
right match.

Here are the dating rules you should break, in order to
increase your shot at having a good time and getting a successful start to your
new relationship.

1. Avoiding Any “Serious”
Talk on the First Date

One of the more traditional dating rules is that you should
avoid any “serious” discussion on the first date, whether it’s politics,
religion, or how many kids you want to have. If they’re dealbreakers, getting
these things out of the way is a good idea, as long as you keep the
conversation casual and move on to them in the second half of the date.

2. Having Sex Based on a
Predetermined Schedule

Among the dating rules you should break, few are sillier
than the “no sex on the first date” or “sex on the third date” ones. Getting
intimate is all about making a connection. Some casual hook ups can end in
great relationships, and waiting to have sex because you feel you have to isn’t
very mature. Whatever you decide, make sure that you’re in sync with your
partner, don’t rush into it or wait to long for old fashioned reasons.

10 Rules to Wearing the Matchy-Matchy Look

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 08 Sep 2014

Matching separates have been called a lot bad things over
the years, from old-fashioned to tacky and costumey, but in the past year they’ve
transitioned to one of the hottest runway looks.

Featured in many Fall 2014 and resort 2015 collections, including
Gucci and Ralph Lauren, matching separates are here to stay. Take a look at the
most important matchy-matchy style rules, that can help you navigate this trend
while keeping it stylish and chic.

1. Stick to Just Two
Separates

Once you accept that matching separates can work as part of
any type of look, from elegant to casual, it’s important to rein it in. Adding
a third matching item to your two separates is definitely taking it too far,
and pushing it in costumey territory. You have to be particularly careful about
how you style your look if the two separates make up your entire look (not
counting accessories).

Published On 29 Aug 2013

The fall 2013 season bring a new Bobbi Brown and Katie Holmes makeup collaboration. The new line, which is fairly small, takes inspiration from Holmes’ lifestyle, which means the new options are practical enough to be used on a daily basis. After all, Katie has the perfect ‘girl next door’ allure, so it’s only natural that the new line was made for women who are always on the go.

Speaking about the new palette, Katie emphasized the desire to offer convenient solutions: “Our objective was to do something that is very helpful to all women.You can put it on in the back of a cab, you can put it on in your bathroom at home, you can put it on in the parking lot at your child’s soccer game. It’s simple, but we like to have special things that make us feel good, and I think that’s what this palette achieves.”

These versatile products are currently available at Barney.com.

Bobbi Brown & Katie Pink Palette ($68)
The Pink Palette is perfect for women who need to transform their makeup look from day to evening without too much fuss. Most of the tones included in the palette can be used for multiple purposes. Many tones work for eyes, cheeks and lips. Plus, they flatter almost all skin tones:

Celebrity Fragrances That Suck!

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfumes
Published On 05 Sep 2014

With price tags that make them available to a wide range of
buyers, celebrity fragrances rarely manage to impress and make a lasting
connection with their audience. More often than not, they end up smelling cheap
or simply unsophisticated.

Check out a few of the worst celebrity fragrances, perfumes
that failed to impress any connoisseurs, and which also rubbed many casual
buyers the wrong way.

Signature Summer for
Her by David & Victoria Beckham

Launching a total of 23 fragrances in less than a decade,
David & Victoria Beckham have managed to saturate the market with their
perfumes, while still cashing in on their celebrity. 

Signature Summer For Her By David   Victoria Beckham Fragrance

Signature Summer for Her
is not the only dud in their range, but it’s worst offender. A forgettable floral
with weak lasting power, has strong top notes of freesia and water lilly, but
quickly fades into a simple vanilla scent.

Joan Rivers’ Most Famous Celebrity Feuds

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 05 Sep 2014

Passing away at the age of 81, Joan Rivers left behind a
very important comedy legacy, overshadowed perhaps by her later years, in which she
enjoyed feuding with many celebrities and hurling insults at them, either on E!’s
“Fashion Police” or on Twitter.

In her 2014 book “Diary of a Mad Diva”, Rivers calls
Jennifer Aniston “stupid”, Tyra Banks “bulimic”, and claims that “Kanye West’s
new son is going to be named P***y in honour of where he came from.” Her
acerbic style wasn’t a hit with everyone, and some celebrities fought back,
ending up in some pretty vicious exchanges. Check out the most famous of Joan
Rivers’s celebrity feuds.

Jennifer Lawrence

Joan Rivers Feud With Jennifer Lawrence

After claiming that “Fashion Police” is teaching young
people “that it’s OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat,” Jennifer
Lawrence got a taste of Joan Rivers’ sharp tongue. The comedienne quickly
retorted: “I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about
retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a
choir boy at the Vatican. Look at her posters!”

Chelsea Handler

Joan Rivers Feud With Chelsea Handler

In one of Joan Rivers’ celebrity feuds that turned really
bitter, Chelsea Handler was upset at the comedy legend for correcting her after
calling herself the “first woman ever to do a late-night show”. Rivers had been
a guest host on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson and ever had her own show
on FOX in 1986, but Handler refused to acknowledge it. “She never spoke to me again,”
Rivers explained.

Robert Downey Jr Drugs

“All those
years of snorting coke, and then I accidentally get involved in heroin after
smoking crack for the first time. It finally tied my shoelaces together…
Smoking dope and smoking coke, you are rendered defenseless. The only way out

How to Talk to Your Partner About an Open Relationship

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 02 Sep 2014

Monogamy continues to be the default for relationships, so
discussing a different choice may seem like a very difficult proposition. If
you’re interested in hooking up outside of your relationship, but don’t want to
be a cheater, this is one discussion you must have.

Learn the basics of how to talk to your partner about an
open relationship, in order to make the experience as effective as possible.
Start by being honest with yourself and move on from there with these simple
tips.

Figure Out Your
Reasons

Bisexuals often prefer open relationships, but that’s not
the only reason why people end up in a monogamish relationship. A big difference
in libidos or simple the need to experiment with things that your partner isn’t
interested in also lead some couples to open their relationship. However, if
the reason is just that you’re bored sexually, but your partner is willing to
experiment and spice things up, don’t rush into opening your relationship.

Make Sure That Your
Relationship Has a Strong Trust Bond

Before you talk to your partner about an open relationship,
it’s important to know that trust is part of the foundation of your relationship.
When trust issues are a problem you’re already dealing with, trying to go
monogamish will probably end up destroying your relationship, especially if you
have a jealous partner.

How to Get Over a Breakup Faster

Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
Published On 01 Sep 2014

Whether you’re dealing with a broken heart or just a painful
breakup, taking the old school approach won’t really help you get over it
faster. Find out how to speed up the process while also focusing on the lessons
you should learn from your relationship.

Learn how to get over a breakup faster by tweaking the
traditional way of eating gallons or ice cream, getting yourself into debt with
expensive purchases or giving up your tresses for a pixie cut.

DON’T: Stay in Bed
More Than One Day

Wallowing in your own misery may be an important step in
getting over the breakup, but it should also be a very short one. Allow
yourself a single day for moping around after your breakup, then get out of bed
and face the world that’s still there.

DO: Allow Yourself to
Grieve

Jumping right back in the saddle doesn’t mean a one night stand
to rebuild your confidence. When you’re wondering how to get over a breakup
faster, try to focus on what went wrong and learn from your experience. Once
you know what pratfall to avoid in your next relationship, you can stop
grieving.

Published On 27 Aug 2013

Five intense nail polish shades define the Models Own Velvet Goth fall 2013 collection. Though it still feels rather painful to think about chilly days, we must admit that the prospect of trading ultra bright nail polish tones for darker, more intense shades doesn’t sound half bad especially with options like these ones. What differentiates the Models Own Velvet Goth nail polishes from many others of the same sort?

According to the label, the “extraordinary 2D finish” is the element that makes all the difference. More specifically, the new tones are matte yet sparkly at the same time, creating a cool multi-faceted effect. Plus, each of the bottle cap matches the nail polish shade, a cute detail which makes them even more covetable. 

Despite what the term “Goth” evokes, the new Models Own Velvet Goth nail polish collection does not revolved around the typical chromatic cliches we’ve all seen at one point or another. On the contrary, any glam loving fashionista can feel drawn to these gorgeous shades, whether she went through a goth phase or not:

Issa London x Banana Republic Collection

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 26 Jul 2013

The Issa London x Banana Republic collection will hit the stores starting with August 8. Ever since the collaboration was announced, we’ve been dying to see what the line would be like as the sketches looked very promising. Now that we finally had a first look at the new line, we are glad to see that it offers versatile options with a classy allure.

One of the standouts of the new line is a blue wrap dress inspired by Kate Middleton’s engagement dress. It’s no secret that Issa London was one of the brands the Duchess of Cambridge relied on for the classy garment that instantly fascinated, so the two retailers decided to put their style ideas to good use. This is how Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen came up with the idea: “We knew our customers would be thrilled to experience royal fashion at a Banana Republic price point.”

Recent events prove that he is absolutely right. The same day Kate Middleton presented her son to the anxious crowd wearing an adorable bespoke Jenny Packham polka dot dress, the labels’s website crashed. That dress is not for sale unfortunately, but the non-isolated event just goes to show how powerful the “Kate effect” really is. The blue wrap dress isn’t the only one that could easily prove a favorite for the Dutchess of Cambridge as all the options included in the sneak peek for the Banana Republic x Issa London collection were created with the same concept in mind.

The Banana Republic x Issa London collection will bring several dress styles, sweaters, totes and accessories, all in the $39.50 – $150 range. The most important attribute of the new line is its versatility, this according to Simon Kneen, who offered a few helpful styling tips for the pieces from the new line to ELLE.com saying:

“This collection easily translates from day to night. For the chic and sophisticated, a jewel-tone dress paired with a blazer can easily take your style from desk to date. For the bold and daring, a zebra print kimono dress paired with a neutral cardigan creates a balanced look. The trick for transitional dressing, especially for pre-fall, is layering.”

How to Talk to a Depressed Partner

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 28 Aug 2014

A lack of understanding when it comes to mental illness
makes many people treat clinical depression in other like an easily solvable
problem, when in fact it’s anything but that.

When you’re ready to talk to a depressed partner about how
they’re feeling and how you can help, there are a lot of wrong things to say.
Learn how to approach the situation carefully and respectfully, so your words
don’t do more harm than good.

Start by
Acknowledging That Depression Is an Illness

If you think depression is just something you can snap out
of, you might end making your partner feel even worse. Personal weakness has
nothing to do with a chemical imbalance in the brain which can’t go away if the
person who’s going through it just wishes that enough. When you’re worried that
your partner might be depressed, have an open conversation about it, while
acknowledging that there are treatments available for it.

Don’t Try to Offer
Solutions to Something You Can’t Solve

The biggest mistake you can make when you talk to a
depressed partner is to offer solutions you think are perfectly reasonable,
when in fact they’re insulting. Working out and getting out more can’t cure
depression, no more than you can will away a tumor.

unflattering on your body, just stay clear of it. 

Of course you can make the
occasional exception, but if most of your wardrobe is what you like, not what
looks good on you, it’s time for a makeover.

J.Crew September 2013 Style Guide

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 27 Aug 2013

The J.Crew September 2013 Style Guide brings some interesting options for early fall. It seems that recent customer feedback concerning the “overstyled” J.Crew fall 2013 collection, which focused more on trends than on updating classic pieces, has been taken into account. 

Loyal customers who were less than impressed with the print-heavy outfits previously spotted in the brand’s new season line might find that the J. Crew September 2013 Style Guide is more in line with the brand’s core style principles.

The new J.Crew Style Guide for fall 2013 makes the task of updating casual looks or business casual outfits a whole lot easier with cool ideas that work well during transitional days. There are plenty of summer pieces included in the guide, which is definitely a good news for those of us who are still trying to hang on to hot season essentials as much as possible. But, aside from short sleeved dresses, cool graphic tees or cool chambray shirts, the label also brings chilly season staples, both versatile pieces and trendier accents which will instantly update any wardrobe to the fall 2013 fashion trends.

Celebrities Who Were Once “Homeless”

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 28 Aug 2014

The road to fame can be long and very difficult, and nobody
knows that better than the celebrities who were once homeless, before making it
big and finding financial security.

From stars who didn’t really mind being homeless, like Chris
Pratt, to celebrities who ended up that way as children, based on decisions
made by their parents, find out which actors and singers managed to find
success despite a temporary setback.

Chris Pratt

After dropping out of college, Chris Pratt tried stripping and finally ended up living in a tent on the beaches of Maui. Luckily for him,
that’s where he was discovered and set him on a path that included a starring
role in “Parks and Recreation” and the lead in Marvel’s “Guardians of the
Galaxy”. 

Chris Pratt Homeless

“It’s a pretty awesome place to be homeless. We just drank and smoked
weed and worked minimal hours, just enough to cover gas, food, and fishing
supplies,” he told The Independent.

Get Squeaky Clean Hair: Best Clarifying Shampoos

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
Published On 27 Aug 2014

Generally intended for weekly or bimonthly use, depending on
how much your hair is exposed to styling products, chlorine, and hard water, a
clarifying shampoo is the perfect way to remove build-up and restore shine to
your dull hair.

Some of the best clarifying shampoos are designed to be used
before a smoothing therapy, but all of them are just as efficient on any type
of hair, whether or not you’re getting your tresses chemically treated in any
way, including coloring.

Alterna Bamboo Style

Detoxify your hair with this clarifying shampoo, allowing it
to shine once all the environmental impurities and product build-up is removed.

sodium chloride, and gluten, restoring your hair’s radiance without stripping
away your scalp’s natural oils.

Moroccanoil

keratin-enriched formula is permanent color safe and free or harmful chemicals
like sulfates, phosphates, and parabens. Combining the shine wonder than it

Worst Hair Removal Mistakes You DON’T Want to Make

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Hair Removal
Published On 27 Aug 2014

Even if you think you know everything you need about hair
removal, you might be falling in a few common traps that end up hurting more
than helping. If you’re ready to get the best results, then you need to avoid
all the worst hair removal mistakes.

From the right way to exfoliate to getting ready for laser
hair removal and protecting your skin after it, here’s what you need to know
about hair removal errors to stay away from in order to get the best results
without bad side-effects for your skin.

Not Exfoliating

Proper exfoliation will help you get rid of dead skin cells
and reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. Because waxing and shaving also have an
exfoliating effect, it’s important to do it 24 hours in advance. If you’re not
a fan of body scrubs, use chemical exfoliators with AHAs or BHAs before going
for the razor. Shaving after proper exfoliation also means a lower risk of
cuts.

Using Chemical Exfoliation
Before Waxing

While chemical exfoliants are safe before using a razor,
they’re not so good for waxing. One of the worst hair removal mistakes is using
AHAs or BHAs before waxing, especially if you’re doing it at home. The risk of
damaging your skin is high, so avoid them for a week before waxing and try more
traditional means of exfoliation to get your skin ready.

Can You Take a Break Without Breaking Up?

Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
Published On 26 Aug 2014

More often than not, taking a break leads to a full breakup,
but that’s linked to lack of communication more than the inevitability of the
split. If you want to take a break without breaking up, find out how to
increase your chances and help your relationship survive this difficult time.

Before taking a break, ask yourself a few important
questions and make sure that you’re on the same page as your partner.
Otherwise, the time off won’t have any other effect except prolonguing the
breakup process.

Analyze the Reasons
for Wanting a Break

If you’re generally sick of your partner, being apart for a
limited time might not help at all. Any problems the relationship is facing won’t
fix themselves either if you take time off. More valid reasons for taking a
break including not being able to sustain a long distance relationship or
having to focus on yourself for a little while in order to determine the future
of a relationship.

Be Honest with
Yourself

When you really want take a break without breaking up, make
sure that you’re honest with yourself. If you believe this is a way of letting
down your guy easy, you’re wrong. Taking a break generally makes the whole
grieving process longer. If you know in your heart that what you really is to
be single again or date someone else, just break up instead of dragging it out.

While many celebrities try their hand at fashion by either
endorsing a collection or even designing part of it, others can actually

With her own clothing line L.A.M.B. still going strong, Gwen

dress – mom didn’t have a choice! And mom would take us to the fabric store and
we’d pick out Vogue and McCall’s patterns.”

Gwen Stefani

“When I got older, I was very anti-fashion.
I was into thrift stores and making my own stuff. I had my own sewing machine,
glue guns and projects everywhere. My room was a danger zone,” Stefani
explained, quoted by Contact Music.

The Secrets of Soft, Silky Hair

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
Published On 25 Aug 2014

Adding moisture and sealing it in are among the best ways to
get softer hair, but there’s more to it than simply using conditioner. Take a
look at some excellent tips that will get your tresses soft and silky, while
also adding a bit of shine.

From restricting the use of heat styling tools to heating up
conditioner and the best oils for softer hair, here are a few easy ways to
banish dry and coarse hair from your style. A few diet adjustments also help,
and the right pillowcase can do wonders for your tresses.

Co-Wash Your Hair

Even a mild shampoo can end up stripping the natural oils
from your hair and scalp when it’s used daily. Switch up your hair care regimen
by co-washing. 

Using conditioner instead of shampoo will help your hair stay
moisturized for longer, whether it’s naturally straight or curly. Of course,
make sure that you alternate between the two and use a clarifying shampoo
weekly.

10 Steps for Prettier Toenails

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
Published On 25 Aug 2014

Growing at about a third or fourth of the speed at which
fingernails do, toenails are completely replaced in about one year. That’s why
it’s very important to keep them in good shape, because any problems will stick
around for longer.

Take a look at some of the best toenail care tips, that will
keep them healthy and looking great, so you can enjoy wearing open-toed shoes
whenever the weather allows it.

1. Moisturize Regularly

There are many ways of keeping your toenails moisturized,
but the truly important thing is that you do it regularly. Since nails get more
brittle as you age, especially when they’re regularly covered in polish, you
should try to give them the moisture they need at least once a week. Cuticle
creams can do the trick, but if you want a more natural option, try petroleum
jelly or vitamin E oil. Gently rub them into your toenails regularly.

2. Avoid Dangerous
Ingredients in Polish

While most nail polish removers are acetone-free and less
drying, the polish itself stays in contact with your nails much longer, and can
contribute to a yellow tint. Ingredients to look out for in toenail polish are toluene,
dibutyl phthalate, and formaldehyde. One of the best toenail care tips is to
also remove your less toxic polish with a remover that doesn’t contain any
alcohol.

Things You Should Never Say to a Guy

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 23 Aug 2014

Just because men like to pretend they’re strong doesn’t mean
that your words can’t cut them deeply. Check out a few things you should never
say to a guy, which may make him feel as bad as you would if he said: “Those jeans
make you look fat.”

Whether or not your intention is to hurt him, these few
phrases can have a lot of power and push him away, even if you didn’t really
mean to be insulting or dismissive when you uttered them to your man or your
new crush.

We Need to Talk…

If you want to instantly raise his heart rate and make him
think of every worst case scenario possible, these 4 words always do the trick.
Whether you’re planning on asking him to buy low fat milk instead of regular or
want to discuss something important about your relationship, this is never the
way to approach it. “We need to talk” just instantly puts him in panic mode and
makes him defensive right off the bat.

Are You Done?

Out of all the things you should never say to a guy during
sex, this one is probably the worst. If he wasn’t done before, he definitely is
now. There’s so much wrong with this line, from the implication that you’re a
passive participant in sex to the idea that you can’t wait to get out of bed,
that you should never say it out loud.

That’s So Cute!

Foods to Avoid If You Can’t Go

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 23 Aug 2014

Using laxatives regularly can actually lead to more
constipation in the long run, as your bowels get used to them and don’t
function that well in their absence. A much better way to avoid constipation is
to be a bit more careful about what you’re eating.

Find out more about which constipation foods to avoid if you
want to have regular bowel movements. A single serving won’t make a difference,
but when you indulge in these foods regularly, you might end up dealing with
constipation.

Fast Food

Fried foods aren’t that good for keeping your digestive
track working in optimal conditions, but when they’re also heavily processed,
you might have a problem. Most fast food is very low in fiber, so if you’re
eating it regularly, you might end up having less bowel movements than you’d like.
Add frozen dinners and chips to the list of food that’s not exactly good for
your digestive system.

10 Makeup Tricks for Droopy Eyelids

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 22 Aug 2014

Lifting your eyelids can be simple once you learn how to
apply the most flattering makeup. Whether you’re dealing with a single drooping
eyelid or with both, these excellent anti-sagging tricks can help.

The basics of droopy eyelids makeup are all about knowing
how to apply the products, but before you start learning about that, remember
that a well defined brow arch helps a lot in drawing the eye upwards. Fill in your brows and make sure they’re arched correctly (look straight ahead, the
right place for the peak of the arch is above the outer edge of the iris),
before trying some of the best makeup tips for droopy eyelids.

1. Start with a Good Primer

Using an eye primer is fundamental when it comes to droopy
eyelids makeup. You want your makeup to stay put perfectly, so invest in a good
primer that will prevent any smudging and will extend the life of these simple
tricks.

2. Use Liquid Concealer

The best choice for concealer is a liquid product, and you
should apply it all over your eyelids, going up to the eyebrow. If you’re used
to blending with your fingers, you should do that, but a makeup sponge can be
more effective in making sure the area is covered perfectly and evenly. Now you’re
ready to start trying the most effective makeup tips for droopy eyelids.

10 Things That Ruin Your Hair

Published On 21 Aug 2014

Even when you’re knowledgeable when it comes to hair care,
you can still slip up and hurt your tresses in ways that aren’t immediately
noticeable. Take a look at the worst ways in which you can treat your hair in
order to avoid them.

Some things that ruin your hair are very obvious, while
others are less known or simply considered unimportant. If you’re serious about
keeping your hair beautiful and healthy, here are the habits to avoid at all
times.

1. Over Shampooing

Even a very mild shampoo can strip too much of the useful natural
oils from your scalp and hair when you use it dairy. However, if you absolutely
have to shampoo every day, don’t use too much of it. 

A quarter sized amount of
shampoo is enough for daily use, even for long hair. If you have a pixie cut, you
might use even less than that.

10 Signs You’re Too Good for Him

Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
Published On 20 Aug 2014

Mismatched couples can develop a lot of issues, but
sometimes it’s clear that one partner is the one pulling all the weight, while
the other just isn’t that interested in the future of the relationship.

When you’re wondering if you’re wasting your time, it’s time
to check the most important signs you’re too good for him. If your man fits the
profile, then you just might need to cut your loses and be single again until
you find someone who’s more interested in treating you as well as you treat
him.

1. You Can’t Really Be
Yourself Around Him

If he’s making you feel bad about yourself or your sense of
humor to the point where you can’t really be yourself anymore, dump his sorry
ass. When your friends are noticing the situation as well, then don’t wait for
one more day and rid yourself of this burden of a relationship. He’s not worth
it.

2. He Just Doesn’t Make
Any Real Effort

One of the clearest signs you’re too good for him is when he’s
either not making any effort, or makes the smallest possible effort in order to
sustain the relationship. Not everything has to be a perfect compromise, but
when you’re constantly giving and he’s constantly taking, or he doesn’t even
bother to reply to your texts for hours, you might consider moving on.

Should You Forgive a Cheating Boyfriend

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 19 Aug 2014

For many women, should you forgive a cheating boyfriend is a
mute question, since sometimes you simply can’t forgive, as much as you’d like
to. But if you’re struggling with this decision, here are a few questions to
ask yourself.

When you’re considering that you might forgive a cheating
boyfriend, it’s important to look at both the past and the future to make the
right decision for yourself in the long run.

Did He Confess or Get
Caught?

Can you find something to appreciate in the honesty of
coming clean? Or did your boyfriend get caught after repeatedly denying the
infidelity? Don’t make the mistake of thinking that a confession out of the
blue is better. He’s only doing it because he’s feeling guilty and hopes that
admitting to what he did will make himself feel like a better person.

Does He Show His
Regret Beyond Words?

When you’re struggling with the hard decision to forgive a
cheating boyfriend or not, his general attitude is much more important than his
words. Is he willing to stick around while you decide what to do? Is he patient
enough to accept that things will be very different for a while?

How to Talk to Your Partner About Getting Tested

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 15 Aug 2014

Condoms can reduce the risk of getting sexually transmitted
infections, but they’re not 100% proof, and many STDs can spread even when you’re
practicing safe sex. If you’re planning on starting a sexual relationship and
you’re wary about the risks, it might be a good idea to discuss the issue with
your partner.

If you’re not sure how to talk to your partner about getting
tested, check out a few simple tips that will help you have an honest and
positive discussion, without running the risk of upsetting your partner.
However, don’t forget that their unwillingness to get tested gives you the
prerogative to just walk away, because a flippant attitude about sexually
transmitted infections is a huge red flag.

Get Educated about
STDs

The first thing you should do before you approach the
subject with your partner is get educated about sexually transmitted diseases.
While herpes spreads by direct skin-to-skin contact with the infected site,
condoms will be able to stop most STDs, but not all of them and they have no
effect on pubic lice or fungal infections in the genital area.

Make a Plan

Before you talk to your partner about getting tested, have
an outline of what you want to discuss. Don’t write a script, just make sure
that you hit a few important points. Always mention that it’s in the best
interest of both of you to get tested regularly and have a couple of options (STD clinics or
doctors you know) ready to recommend once he agrees that getting tested for STIs
it’s important.

10 Life-Changing Curly Hair Hacks

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
Published On 15 Aug 2014

Between making sure that your curls are well defined and
fighting frizz, caring for your curly hair can be a lot more time consuming
than naturally straight hair. Check out the best curly hair hacks, that will
solve problems and improve the look of your hair.

From co-washing to the best anti-frizz smartphone apps, here
are a few great ways to ensure that you’re giving your curly hair all the
attention it deserves for a gorgeous look.

1. Turn a T-shirt into Your
New Towel

Regular towels are simply bad for your hair, whether you’re
worried about frizz or breakage. Hand-loomed organic cotton is the best way to
go, but when you don’t want to invest is an expensive towel, simply use a
T-shirt. Even if it’s softer, you still shouldn’t rub your tresses with the
fabric, or twist them while covered by the tee. Pat and gently squeeze to leave
you hair looking better after drying.

2. Make Conditioner Your
Shampoo

Co-washing (“conditioner washing”) is definitely one of the best
curly hair hacks. You might still need a clarifying shampoo from time to time,
but using a good conditioner as shampoo will lock moisture much better in your
curls, giving them shine and bounce. Try cleansing conditioners that basically
clean your hair as well as shampoo without stripping the natural oils from it.

3. Keep Your Curls
Intact with a Hairnet

World’s Best Paid Models in 2013

Published On 21 Aug 2013

Forbes magazine published its Highest-Paid Models 2013 list and gave everyone a serious case of deja-vu as it announced that Gisele Bündchen is once again at the top of the best paid list for the seventh year in a row, with a whopping $42 million in earnings, $3 millions less than last year, though we’re pretty sure that her recent Chanel, Pantene, David Yurman gigs and H&M fall 2013 campaign will change that. 

Even with this slight decrease in total income, she’s still way ahead of Miranda Kerr, who is the second best paid model of 2013.

Australian bombshell Miranda Kerr, who is currently the face of Spanish retailer Mango and the founder of the Kora Organics beauty label, totaled $7.2 million in earnings or almost six times less than Gisele. The third highest earning model of the world in 2013 was Victoria’s Secret angel Adriana Lima. Her lucrative deals with the lingerie retailer but also with high end brands like Donna Karan and Miu Miu brought her no less than $6 million.

Non-Boring Ways to Wear White Jeans

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 08 Aug 2014

White denim can certainly be a lot less forgiving than
darker colors, but that doesn’t mean only size 0 models can pull it off. Find
out how to wear white jeans regardless of your body type, and how to make them
a stylish part of your look.

With the right style tips, you’ll have no trouble in finding
the most flattering pair, but remember that white jeans are an “all of nothing”
affair. Off white jeans may look just as cute, but they certainly don’t have
the visual appeal of pristine white denim.

White Jeans for an Hourglass
Figure

If you’ve got an hourglass figure, you need to be extra
careful when it comes to the fit at your waist. Jeans with a contoured
waistband won’t create a gap at the waist and since white is less forgiving, this
is very important. 

White Jeans For Hourglass Figure

Straight-leg jeans are also flattering, while wide-leg
styles are not a good choice. Pair them with a fitted top to show off your
curves in the best way.

10 Biggest Relationship Killers

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 08 Aug 2014

Protecting and nurturing your relationship is very important
when you’re in it for the long haul, so you should always be wary of the biggest
relationship killers, silent and deadly problems that usually lead to a break
up or divorce.

Making sure that your relationship is not affected by these problems
takes a lot of time and energy, but in the end, it will be worth it. From lack
of communication to forgetting about your own need for a little “me time”, these
are the most dangerous issues, the top ten relationship killers.

1. Lack of Communication

Misunderstandings and assumptions can only lead to trouble.
That’s why communication is very important in any relationship. You can’t
really change someone who doesn’t want to invest in improving communication, so
lack of communication is also a big red flag at the beginning of any
relationship.

2. Unwillingness to Compromise

Losing yourself completely in a relationship where you’re
the only one who gives is bad, but unwillingness to compromise is definitely
one of the biggest relationship killers. You shouldn’t count the times when you
feel like you compromise more than your partner, that’s petty, but you should
aim for a rough balance in the sacrifices you both make for the sake of the
relationship.

Pros and Cons of the Mayo Clinic Diet

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 08 Aug 2014

Developed at the renowned Mayo Clinic, this weight loss
program promises dieters they’ll lose up to 10 pounds in the first two weeks,
and then up to 2 pounds weekly. While the diet was created to aid weight loss for
obese and overweight patients, it can be a healthy way to drop a few pounds for
almost everyone.

Find out more about the pros and cons of the Mayo Clinic
Diet before deciding if this the right approach for you. Based on the food
pyramid explained in the book written by the weight-loss experts at Mayo Clinic,
you’ll be dropping pounds while eating a lot more fruits and vegetables, along
with whole grains.

Pros of the Mayo
Clinic Diet

Structured in two phases, the two week “Lose it!” and the “Live
it!” for sustainable weight loss, the Mayo Clinic Diet follows the dietary
guidelines that are considered healthy for both heart disease and diabetes
prevention. But is it the best fit for you?

Delivers Short Term
Results

One of the biggest pros of the Mayo Clinic Diet is that you’ll
be able to lose between 6 and 10 pounds in the first two weeks, during the most
restrictive phase of the diet. After that, once most restrictions are lifted,
you’ll probably drop 1-2 pounds per week.

Best Spa Treatments for Acne and Acne Scars

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Acne and Skin Problems
Published On 07 Aug 2014

While your dermatologist can prescribe topical medication
for acne, a licensed esthetician can also play a big part in getting rid of acne
or removing scars. From clay masks to laser treatments, discover the best spa
treatments for acne and acne scars.

If you’re dealing with severe acne, always consult a
licensed esthetician before a treatment, in order to make sure that you’re
getting the maximum beneficial effect while also avoiding any side-effects. For
more extreme treatments, like chemical peels, you might also want to check in
with your dermatologist before heading to the spa.

Clay Masks

Even though they don’t have instant effects, clay masks are
one of the best spa treatments for acne and acne scars in the long run. 

Whether
you go for brown, green or white clay masks, it’s important to remember that
the clay draws out the toxins from the skin, which can actually irritate pores
and cause breakouts. However, once they’re cleared out, you should notice a big
improvement in your complexion in regards to acne.

10 Smart Makeup Tricks for a Sagging Neck

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 06 Aug 2014

Most women only start caring about their necks when their
skin is already starting to sag, but you’ll eventually end up having to deal
with loose skin even if you moisturize and use sunscreen daily.

Check out some of the best makeup tricks for a sagging neck,
that will help you achieve the look you want while hiding imperfections in your
neck area with a few simple tips. From using bronzer correctly to drawing away the
eye from your neck, here’s how to downplay sagging and loose neck skin.

1. Stick to ‘Less Is
More’

Caking makeup on your neck is not the way to hide any skin
issues, and it’s an even worse idea during the warmer months of the year, since
makeup can easily transfer to your collars.

2. Don’t Skip the Primer

10 Signs You’re Dating a Sociopath

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 06 Aug 2014

When you suspect the new man you’re dating is just too good
to be true, you might be on to something. Sociopaths will make you feel like
the one at first, before they win you over and start showing their true colors.

Check out the biggest signs you’re dating a sociopath and
find out how to tell when something is really wrong in your new relationship. If
your man displays more than three of the red flags, you might be in danger, not necessarily of physical abuse, but certainly of a lot of psychological abuse.

1. He’s an Extreme
Narcissist

Believe it or not, narcissists with no shame are often gifted with crazy sexual magnetism. You won’t be able to tell a huge narcissist
just by looking at them, but as soon as you interact for more than a few
minutes, his sense of entitlement usually comes through. Even if he’s extremely
good looking, the narcissism should be a red flag in any relationship.

Every Story

Celebrities Without a Thigh Gap

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 06 Aug 2014

Even though it’s become a sign of beauty for many women, the
thigh gap has little to do which how much you starve yourself and more to do
with your bones. The angle of the femoral neck and the pelvic width are the
actual causes of it, not your BMI, so skinny without a thigh gap is more common
than you think. Luckily, there are many singers, models and actresses without a
thigh gap who know that.

If you already have a thigh gap and you just need to
accentuate it by dropping a few pounds, that’s great, but most celebrities without
a thigh gap are gorgeous without it. While many size 0 models have slim thighs,
being thin doesn’t automatically mean being beautiful.

Beyoncé

After posting a photoshopped picture on Instagram, the
singer was attacked by fans who were disappointed that she tried to make her thighs
appear slimmer. 

Beyonce

No matter how much Photoshop she uses, Beyoncé is still one of
the celebrities without a thigh gap, and she certainly shouldn’t need it to
feel gorgeous.

House of Harlow 1960 Launches Clothing Line

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 29 Jul 2013

Nicole Richie extended House of Harlow 1960s offerings with a new clothing line. So far, the label has offered a myriad of cool accessories like handbags, shoes, sunglasses and jewelry, but it seems that the fall of 2013 marks a new beginning in the label’s history. This isn’t Nicole Richie’s first foray into clothing design, but it’s certainly the first line featured under the House of Harlow 1960 label. The designer didn’t make the announcement with bells and whistles. Instead, a few pieces made their way to Shopbop recently.

The new House of Harlow fall 2013 collection features a handful of pieces which have a rock chic vibe and are all black. Rock chic options in all of their forms will be a huge trend in the upcoming months, so the new pieces couldn’t be more appropriate for the new season. The easiest choice when you’re craving a bit of edginess? A moto-inspired jacket! The new Ramona Jacket ($285) has perforated sleeves, notched lapels and an instantly distinguishable “badass” allure.

House Of Harlow 1960 Fall 2013 Outfit

Another interesting choice is the Arla skirt ($165) which is ideal for girls who crave an edgy allure yet still want a feminine outfit. The perforated holes add an abstract vibe to the skirt and entice everyone to want to take a closer look. For confident girls who aren’t afraid to show off their legs, the Otis Shorts ($145) featuring a cuffed hem and a modern off center zipper which adds a modern vibe to the piece, might be a good pick. Another great choice that requires a significant amount of confidence to pull off is the Jet Dress ($195), a sleeveless bodycon dress that features a perforated detail upper which instantly attracts attention.

House Of Harlow 1960 Fall 2013 Outfit 4

If you prefer to stay away from leather pieces for moral reasons, fear not: these are made from faux leather and have a 100% polyurethane shell. The pieces from the new House of Harlow fall 2013 clothing line come in sizes ranging from XS to L and can be easily combined with many of the label’s fall 2013 jewelry pieces which match the spirit of the new line and can instantly add interest to the new season looks.

any actual convincing. If he’s feeling pressured, he won’t respond well, so
taking your relationship to the next level is more about being than doing.

Make Sure He’s
the One for You

Be honest with yourself and decide if he’s really the guy
you can see yourself being happy next to in 5, 10 or 20 years. Don’t try to
force things into the mold of the perfect love story. Instead, get to know
him, while letting him know you and make sure that your connection is a real
one, based on common interests and values, not just on hot sex and how good you
look together.

get tricky, but picking the right product is just as important as priming your
lips and sealing the color with a touch of translucent power.

but if you really want long lasting wear without any smudging or feathering,
try one of the best smudge proof lipsticks. They’ll stay put and keep the
perfect shade on your lips for longer.

color, while also keeping your lips moisturizer and proving a long lasting wear
with no smudging. This creamy lipstick in enriched with vitamin E and delivers
on its promise of up to 10 hours of vivid color and shine, while also staying
put whether you feel like eating or kissing.

Max Factor Max Wear

lasting lip color, the Max Wear Lip Color is one of the best smudge proof
lipsticks. The double-ended tube delivers the shade of your choice, along with
a shimmering gloss overcoat that also helps defend the color against smudging.
Its only downside is that you’ll have to wait 2 minutes after the color base
application in order to finish your look with the gloss.

10 Signs You Should Take a Break from Dating

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 30 Jul 2014

If your heart isn’t in it, dating can end up a lot less fun
than you expect it to be. You should never stop looking for that special
someone, but sometimes a break can do you a lot of good, especially if you feel
burned out on dating.

Check out the biggest signs you should take a break from
dating, and decide if you’re in any of these situations which warrant some time
off. Even if you want to keep dating, a break can help you focus on yourself
and what you really want and help you improve the experience in every way.

1. You’re Not Enjoying It
Anymore

If you’re just dating because that’s what you think you’re
supposed to be doing, stop. When you’re not enjoying it anymore, all of your
dates will notice it and it will make you a lot less attractive in their eyes. If
you feel like you can’t be your best self anymore, and you’re just going
through the motions, take a little break to refocus on why you’re dating and
what kind of guy you’d like to meet.

2. You’re Not Over Your
Ex

Jumping into the dating pool right after a breakup is not a
good idea. If you know you’re not completely over your ex, that’s one of the signs
you should take a break from dating. It doesn’t mean you can’t still hang out
with friends, but if you’re not ready to make a new emotional connection, then
you’re just wasting time.

Same

able to fix the problem 100%, but when you’re dealing with excessive sweating
and sweat stains on your favorite clothes, there are quite a few things that
can help.

Find out how to keep your style stain free, starting with
your deodorant and ending with what types of clothing hide the problem best.
Take on sweat stains and you’ll definitely feel a lot better once you try these
simple solutions to the issue.

Rethink Your
Deodorant Application

The biggest reasons for sweat stains have to do with the way
you use deodorant. Sweat won’t stain your clothes by itself, but mixed with
antiperspirants it can get pretty ugly. The first thing you need to do is apply
less of it. 

A huge mistake is putting your clothes on while your underarms aren’t
completely dry. Be patient and wait for them to dry before you put on your
favorite blouse or any top or dress that you want to keep free of sweat stains.

9 Minerals That Help Your Weight Loss

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 29 Jul 2014

Getting the right nutrients is important when you’re a diet,
because you simply won’t lose weight if you’re depriving your body of important
vitamins and minerals. Taking dietary supplements might be necessary for a big
deficiency, but sometimes all you need to do is adjust your diet a bit.

Discover the best minerals for weight loss, and find out
what foods you’ll find them in or how many supplements to take without risking
any unwanted side effects that can also mess with your weight loss plan.

1. Calcium

One of the best minerals for weight loss, calcium is key to
more than just bone strength. Along with vitamin D is also plays a part in
protecting against breast cancer. The adequate intake of calcium for women
under 50 is 1,000 mg/day, slightly higher for 51 years and up. The tolerable
upper intake levels are 2,500 mg/day for adults, and supplements should be
taken with food. Good sources of dietary calcium include dairy, fortified
cereals, soy products and leafy greens.

2. Zinc

While the recommended dietary allowance of zinc doesn’t go
higher than 13mg/day for breastfeeding women, the tolerable upper intake level
is around 40mg. However, you shouldn’t take more than 15mg/day without
consulting a doctor first, since you might also need to take copper along with
zinc. You’ll find zinc in red meat and poultry, whole grains, beans and nuts.

10 Best Facial Cleansers for Every Skin Type

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfect Skin
Published On 28 Jul 2014

Using a special facial cleanser can be very rewarding in the
long run, since they contain ingredients that keep your skin hydrated and they
never strip the skin’s protective layer. Check out some of the best facial
cleansers in 2014.

From gentle non-foaming cleansers that keep even the most
sensitive skin irritation-free to dermatologist
tested cleansers that do more than just remove impurities, try any of these top
picks and you won’t regret it.

Boscia Soothing
Cleansing Cream

Ideal for normal to dry and combination skin, the Boscia
Soothing Cleansing Cream should be applied on dry skin and massaged thoroughly
with circular motions. Its sulfate-free formula includes a unique blend of
botanical emollients, including carrot root, jojoba leaf and chamomile, that
manage to remove every trace of makeup and dirt while leaving your skin soft
and smooth.

Clarins Cleansing
Milk with Gentian

With a soft milky texture, the Clarins Cleansing Milk with Gentian is definitely one of the best facial cleansers of 2014, at least for
oily and combination skin. Its soothing and calming effect is best achieved if
you warm it to body temperature in your palm before application, then placing
your hands on your face for a suction effect that contributes to radiant and
refreshed skin.

Beauty Problems Caused by Pets

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfect Skin
Published On 28 Jul 2014

Whether you have a cat or a dog, your pet can be responsible
for many issues that can cause trouble for your skin and your entire health. Find
out how to deal with beauty problems caused by pets, and how to determin
whether you’re dealing with something bigger.

While your dog or cat can infect you with plenty of diseases
that manifest with symptoms that affect your skin, it’s also important to
remember the most important beauty benefit of having a pet. Read on for the
troubles pets can cause, and for the beauty upside that they offer.

Puffy Eyes
(Allergies)

One of the most common beauty problems caused by pets,
allergy symptoms don’t always manifest as a rash when you’re exposed to
dandruff, hair or saliva from a pet. When you’re dealing with allergies caused
by a pet, nasal congestion often leads to puffy eyes. While you can’t make this
problem go away completely, it’s important to get either prescription or over
the counter antihistamines and fight nasal congestion in order to avoid any
swelling that’s caused by allergies.

Scratch Marks

Even if you don’t get cat scratch disease, a bacterial
infection most common in children, your pet can leave ugly red lines on your
skin after play time. Make sure you always clean your hands with soap and water
very well after playing with your cat or dog when claws and teeth are involved.
Antibiotic ointments should also be used when your pet completely breaks your
skin, causing even the smallest amount of bleeding.

Gisele Bündchen for H&M Fall 2013 Campaign

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 16 Aug 2013

The new H&M fall 2013 campaign brings Gisele Bündchen back into the spotlight. The Brazilian supermodel, who is the face of the label, previously appeared in the brand’s spring summer 2011 campaign, and has now made her much awaited return. The streets of London proved the perfect background for the Swedish retailer’s newest campaign shot by photographer Lachlan Bailey. The star announced her new gig ( for which she allegedly received between $3 million and $5 million) via Instagram with a single photo with the caption: “New H&M campaign. Nova campanha da H&M.” The 33 year old bombshell looks classy and a bit melancholic in several cozy outfits which beautifully illustrate some of the next season’s hottest trends.

The Gisele Bündchen for H&M campaign brings a cool mix of elegant and trendy pieces. Despite the apparent simplicity of the new looks, there are plenty of interesting ideas presented in the new campaign. Military accents have been present on the fall 2013 runways in many interesting forms. The Swedish retailer opted for a fairly discreet version, a military-inspired coat with a modern vibe which can be easily adapted to many outfits. Craving a trendy touch yet don’t want to go for something overly dramatic? Winter white pieces can be a great option for such needs.

Its popularity be easily understood: it’s hard to go wrong with a simple, cozy white sweater and it’s probably one of the most versatile piece in a fashionista’s cold season wardrobe. Another reason why the looks presented in the Gisele Bündchen for H&M fall 2013 ads feel so effortlessly chic? The clever textural contrasts. A cool shearling vest, like the one from the new H&M campaign, is a practical way of adding to complexity to an outfit without trying too hard.

turn them into husband material. Some succeeded, at least in getting them to
the altar, but many didn’t even go that far.

Check out a few celebrities who married rock stars and find
out how long those marriages lasted. From supermodels to Playboy models and
Hollywood royalty, here are the women who got hitched with rock musicians.

After coining the heroin chic look in the ‘90s, supermodel

Libertines and Babyshambles fame. 

Kate Moss And Jamie Hince

None of the relationships lasted until she
met Jamie Hince, guitarist for the indie rock band The Kills. The two got
engaged in 2008, and married 3 years later.

Unflattering Clothes to Avoid Unless You Look Like a Supermodel

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 23 Jul 2014

Unflattering trends pop up each year, but some inexplicably
return cyclically, despite being the wrong choice for most body types. Take a
look at some of the most unflattering clothes, that you definitely should let
go.

From ponchos to risky dresses that few women can actually
pull off, and sometimes just from certain angles, find out which clothes you’re
better off staying away from, because they’re almost universally unflattering.

Ponchos

Whether you’re sipping margaritas in Cancun or traveling
across Iceland, ponchos are always a bad idea. They’re simply unflattering on
most women, because the main effect they achieve is making your upper body seem
wider. 

Ponchos Unflattering Clothes

Whether you’re pear shaped or slim and athletic, ponchos don’t help with
your body’s proportions at all, and even supermodels can look bad while wearing
one.

Low Calorie Cheeses to Eat for Weight Loss

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 23 Jul 2014

When you’re thinking of cutting back on fatty dairy as part
of your diet, cheese should be the first on your list. However, cheese is rich
in calcium, and if you’re dealing a calcium deficiency, you’re more likely to
gain weight, among other health issues, including osteoporosis.

Reduced-fat cheeses can be the right choice for you, but if
you’d rather stick to more natural options with less fat and calories, try a
few of these nutritious picks for the title of the best cheese for weight loss.

Swiss – 106 Calories

A 28 g slice of Swiss cheese has less fats and calories than
cheddar, and it’s also one of the healthiest cheese options thanks to its high
content of vitamin B12. One serving also include 8 g fats and 8 g protein, along
with plenty of calcium and phosphorus. If you’re looking for a delicious slice
of melted cheese for your sandwich, swiss should be one of your top choices.

Monterey Jack – 104 Calories

Get 20% of your recommended daily calcium intake with a 28 g
slice of Monterey Jack. Still to the basic variety if you want to much on one
of the best cheeses for weight loss. If you’re going for pepperjack, which
added hot peppers, you’re more likely to overeat. While hot pepper can help
your weight loss efforts, the extra calories will not. One serving contains 8 g
fats and 7 g protein.

Celebrities Who Don’t Eat Sugar and It Shows!

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Celebrity Diets
Published On 23 Jul 2014

While the benefits of giving up refined sugars completely
are still controversial, many celebrities have taken the leap and decided to
stop eating anything but natural sugars, and very little of them.

Discover the celebrities who don’t eat sugar and find out
what their reasoning behind this strict dietary decision is based on. From
Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Biel to Miley Cyrus and Jessica Alba.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Founder of lifestyle website Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow is one of
the celebrities who don’t eat sugar who’s been very vocal about her reasons. “Today,
over a third of the calories we consume come from sugar or white flour, which
is highly refined and acts just like sugar in our system. 

Gwyneth Paltrow Diet

Our bodies cannot
cope with such an enormous load. Sugar gives you an initial high, then you
crash, then you crave more, so you consume more sugar. It’s this series of
highs and lows that provoke unnecessary stress on your adrenals. You get
anxious, moody (sugar is a mood-altering drug) and eventually you feel
exhausted,” Paltrow wrote on her website, explaining that it took her a full
month to kick the sugar habit.

Pros and Cons of Electrolysis Hair Removal

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Hair Removal
Published On 22 Jul 2014

While laser treatments use light to destroy the hair
follicle, and they’re most effective for dark hair, electrolysis can be used by
a lot more people and delivers more permanent results, but it’s not immune to
complications.

Discover the pros and cons of electrolysis hair removal,
which can be used safely on plenty of areas, from the face to your thighs.
While it doesn’t guarantee 100% efficiency, electrolysis is definitely your
best chance of getting rid of unwanted hair.

Pros of Electrolysis
Hair Removal

While laser hair removal is temporary, electrolysis can
actually be permanent, because the hair growth center in each follicle is destroyed.
It’s the only “permanent” hair removal method approved by the FDA, and it has
plenty of advantages over every other cosmetic treatment with the same purpose.

Proven Track Record

One of the biggest pros of electrolysis hair removal is the
fact that it’s actually permanent, and yields good results for most of those
who try it. As long as you make sure that you’re actually getting electrolysis
and you’re not being fooled into paying for a treatment with the less permanent
electric tweezers, you’ll probably get rid of most or all unwanted hairs.

Best Lean Meats to Eat for Weight Loss

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 22 Jul 2014

If you’re a carnivore, meat can be an important part of your
diet, since it delivers plenty of protein. The key to the best lean meats to
eat for weight loss is choosing the options with the least fat, but cooking
also plays a big part.

When you’re looking to drop a few pounds with sustainable
weight loss, buying the right cut is just the first step. Cooking meat by
steaming, grilling, poaching, baking, or boiling without extra fats is the key
to benefiting the most from its nutrients without obstacles getting in the way of your weight loss goal. Even fats from
cooking oils that are considered healthy can help you gain weight, so keep that
in mind.

What Does Lean Meat
Actually Mean?

The amount of fat in a 3 ounce serving determines whether
meats are labeled lean or extra lean, according to the system used by the
United States Department of Agriculture. Lean meats contain less than 10 g total
fat in a serving, with less than 4.5 g saturated fat. If you’re buying extra
lean, a serving should have no more than 5 g total fat, with a maximum of 2 g
saturated fat. When you’re looking for the best lean meats to eat for weight
loss, poultry should be your top choice, but red meat and fish are also good
options, regardless of your diet.

10 Questions to Ask Before You Move In Together

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 19 Jul 2014

Moving in together is a big step for any relationship. While
many believe that you shouldn’t do it without a long-term commitment, others
prefer to give the relationship a “test drive” with a little cohabitation
before moving forward.

No matter which side of the issue you’re on, there are a few
important questions to ask before moving in together. Once you’ve got the
answers, from yourself and from your man, you’ll truly be ready for taking this
leap in your relationship.

Are You Moving in
Together Too Soon?

If your relationship has been going forward too fast, the
move might be less of a joy than you think. It’s important that you really know
your boyfriend before committing to living together. Have you even been on a
vacation together? When you jump too fast into moving in with your man, you’ll
get to know him even faster, and you might not like what you see.

Is It for
Convenience?

One of the best questions to ask before moving in together
is if this steps is emotionally important to you. If you’ve just doing it out
of convenience, because you spend most time together anyway, and living
together will help both of you save some rent and utilities money, you might be
making a mistake. Unless you genuinely want to share more of your time with
your man and make this commitment together, don’t rush into it.

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Lookbook

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 14 Aug 2013

The 3.1 Philip Lim for Target collection will soon make its much awaited debut. With the most interesting pieces of the line already revealed, the debate on whether all the hype behind the collaboration was justified is ready to begin. If you ask us, the 100 piece collection doesn’t disappoint, especially since it was more or less on the designer’s mind for about 5 years before he finally decided to take the plunge into the world of designer collaborations.

“It’s been a long time coming. The courtship’s been like five years, and it was about timing and having something worth saying,” Philip Lim explained. The line consists of womenswear and menswear, purses, shoes and travel accessories, all of which reflect the luxury label’s DNA. In an interview for Fashionista.com, he stated that the biggest challenge he faced was derived from his desire to create a variety of versatile pieces that could easily be worn on a regular basis: “I think the most difficult was to create a cohesive wardrobe consisting of everyday staples that would not get lost in a sea of clothes, that people would have the desire to have and to wear. I think the most simple things are the hardest things to do.”

3 1 Phillip Lim For Target Fall 2013 Lookbook  (1)

Still, though they make up a significant part of the new line, utilitarian pieces are not the sole focus of the new 3.1 Philip Lim for Target lookbook. The items are divided into three categories: Morning, Noon and Night, each with its own chic set of inspirational looks. Standouts from the new line include classic trench coats, funky pop art inspired crewneck sweatshirts with “Boom” written on them, lots of leopard printed pieces, amazing dresses and, of course the gorgeous variations of the the iconic 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli satchel in cool tones like black, yellow, red and blue.
