She may be related to royalty, but just like the rest of us commoners Pippa Middleton had to work on Wednesday. The 27 year old was spotted leaving her new job in London wearing a chic $60 Zara two-tone dress and white wedges. We love how the Middleton sisters are uber famous, but still buy their clothes from high street shops!

Buh Bye Sun Spots

In Beauty on May 17, 2011 at 11:26 am

I’ve recently become aware of the damage that years of sunbathing has taken on my skin. Little dark spots have started to appear on my cheekbones, and while they are generally unnoticeable, I started to nip this problem in the butt before it gets out of hand. I picked up Clinique’s award winning Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. For the last week I have been applying this serum twice a day and then putting my SPF daily lotion on top. I am very excited to start seeing these little dark spots on my cheeks fade away and the product claims that this will happen in 4 weeks! In clinical trials, it delivered results comparable to a leading prescription ingredient for a verified 53% improvement in skin tone.

As for now, it makes my skin feel super smooth and gives me hope for the future!

Fatten Up

Wearing thin? Bumble and bumble’s thickening serum is the right way to thicken up. This nightly, leave-in treatment fattens and fortifies over time for thicker, stronger strands and fuller hair (really).

Who: Those wearing thin, the fine, and the ultra-fine.

When: Nightly. Twice-daily for the ultra-fine.

How: Before bed, pump serum into palms 2 or 3 times; work into roots and through damp or dry hair. Longer hair types should pump again and be sure to smooth through ends.

Cost: $27.00
