Harem Pants… Why?

In the process of writing a post about the best, most boring, and scariest trends this spring, I decided that harem pants deserve a small rant all their own. What is there to say about this baffling wanna-be addition to our closets? I mean, most of us are not six feet tall weighing in under 120 pounds—and if we were, harem pants still would not flatter, as evidenced by the lovely models trying so hard …

In Love With My Seven7 Bootcut Jeans

On the advice of my husband, I decided to order some jeans for myself from Dr. Jays, not something I would normally do because being someone of short stature and I would say a full-figured woman, it is hard, if not impossible to find a pair of jeans that fit all parts of my lower body the way they should. Either I get jeans that are a little loose in the waist and 5 inches …

Baby Fashion: Apple Bottoms, Baby Phat, Timberland

It seems that a lot of my female friends are pregnant; something in the water they say? So I could not resist parousing a few sites to check out the options for baby shower gifts that will allow my friends’ little ones to come into this world in style. If you are anything like me, or like any other woman I suppose, you absolutely love to shop for baby clothes. It takes us back to …

Best Sale Sites on the Web

I have to say: If there’s one upside to this economy, it’s that department stores, boutiques, online shopping sites, and designers alike are so desperate to clothe us (a.k.a. sell stuff) that prices on everything from sunglasses to wedding gowns are slashed. Which is great for girls like me, who are, well, still desperate to be clothed by them! The bottom line is that, if you know where to look, you’ll never buy a full-priced handbag, …

Artificial sweeteners in the most unexpected places

About two years ago I decided to cut out all artificial sweeteners that weren’t plant based out of my diet.  No more aspartame, sucralose or sorbitol for me.  The decision was arrived at after I did a bit of reading and came to realize that none of these products were originally designed to be consumed.  The discovery of their usability as sweeteners was accidental., and they contain all kinds of bads stuff making them generally not …

Video: Diddy on KFC vs. Popeye’s fried chicken

Just leave it to Diddy, hip-hop star, fashion mogul, and leader of Bad Boy Records, to bring such a scientific experiment into the forefront of our minds. Why the final word between KFC’s fried chicken and that of Popeye’s has taken so long to be settled is beyond me, but we need to thank the heavens above that Diddy was able to bring this important issue into light. Now we won’t ruin the results, but …

Minty goodness

Mint is one of my favorite scents in the world.  I quite often have a peppermint candle burning and most of my beauty products have some form of mint in them.  There is nothing quite like starting the day off with a hot shower, apple spearmint shampoo and lavender peppermint body wash.  It helps wake me up and gets my creative juices flowing. I have also recently discovered the joy of peppermint tea. I find …

The Healthy Makeup Cure for Dry Skin—and Other Recessionista-Chic Beauty Ideas

Posted by Katie Gutierrez Painter
Categories: Advice, Fashion, How To,

All right, ladies, I don’t know about you, but I have been dealing with the most schizophrenic skin lately! Always a bit of a rabble-rouser (Accutane twice, perhaps?), my skin lately has been winter-dry and flaky… in the areas where it hasn’t been producing unnecessary amounts of oil, that is. My pockets aren’t particularly deep these days, so I decided to mix my standby powder Bare Minerals foundation with my daily Neutrogena Oil-Free SPF 15 …

Bad Spelling Pun Aside… The Results are Hair!

The almost-week since chopping off my hair has been a study in feminine power. On that first day, walking out of the salon clutching my 10-inch severed ponytail, I felt a strange combination of liberation and uncertainty. I no longer had the heavy weight of thick hair over my back and shoulders, and my neck felt bare and vulnerable. Later, of course, I thrilled at how quickly I could wash my hair in my crappy, …

I think we can all admit that the current credit crisis can be a bit difficult to understand and grasp by the average person. That’s why we like this video by Jonathan Jarvis, The Crisis of Credit Visualized. He breaks it down into plain English surprisingly well. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the comments. ...
