Ultra Long Eyelashes

In Beauty on June 29, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Who doesn’t want gorgeous, thick, long eyelashes? Every women does (and some men too). Wouldn’t it be great if our eyelashes could grow longer and thicker every single day by doing nothing more than applying mascara? Well, that is now reality! Lancome Definicils Precious Cells Mascara is the first mascara from Lancôme that regenerates the condition of lashes. Lash-by-lash fullness. Its unique Lash Densifier complex, with precious plant-cell extract, regenerates lash condition within four weeks of use on bare lashes. Lashes are stronger, densified, as though multiplied in number and lash fallout is minimized during makeup removal.

Also, if Julia Roberts endorses this product, I am doubly sold! Need this!!

T-Shirt Tune Up

In Fashion on June 25, 2010 at 3:01 pm

There are days when I just want to wear a t-shirt and be comfortable but to be honest, I feel like a hobo when just wearing a t-shirt. It almost screens “I have no fashion sense”. Here are 8 great ways to dress up a plain t-shirt and look stylish:

1. Pair with a sequin skirt
2. Add a Vest
3. Use a scarf
4. Layer on an Statement Jacket
5. Spill paint on it
6. Rock a Bold Necklace
7. Slip into some shinny shorts
8. Roll up your sleeves

Carrie and Mike reportedly aren’t going to have a wedding cake; “We’re kind of doing cupcakes,” the country star tells CMT Radio Live’s Cody Alan. “I consider myself a very traditional person. More than anything, we’re going to get married, that’s the important part. And we want everyone to have a good time, so we’re doing some things like that, that are a little bit different.”

Underwood is ordering the cupcakes from IveyCake in Franklin, Tenn., which is run by Ivey Childers – the wife of Underwood’s bass player, Mark Childers. Ivey “makes the most amazing cupcakes in the universe,” Underwood says.

Summer Braid

In Beauty on June 18, 2010 at 11:41 am

The Summer Braid is back in full swing and it’s as cute and practical as ever! The french, fishtail, dutch, to bikers braid…they’re all back! If you’re looking for a soft, day wear braid that isn’t too proper and won’t remind people of you in 3rd grade, go with Diane’s braid (shown above) for a side-swiped, breezy look.

Diane’s braid isn’t a French braid—meaning it shouldn’t start at the top of your head. Instead, you begin braiding just above the ear. (As for the fishtail technique, simply break the ponytail into two ropes, take a skinny section from the left and add to the right, then repeat to the ends of your hair.) Finish by twisting a section of hair around the end and pinning in place. This will look more authentic and hand-done…rather than harch and over processed!
