Amanda Seyfried’s Hair in ‘Chloe’ is Wavy and (Duh) Gorgeous!

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

amanda seyfried hair

Amanda Seyfried has a new movie with Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson called “Chloe”. It’s a dark drama/thriller and also supposedly pretty provocative. While I don’t know if it’s a movie worth seeing yet, I do know that Seyfried’s hair is really gorgeous in it! Yes, maybe I’m a little obsessed with hair. There was one year I put hot rollers in my hair pretty much EVERY  day, to have the “perfect” hair I wanted. People thought I was nuts to get up so early just to do my hair. But it gave me confidence, so I guess it was worth it.

Psst! Hiya! If you’re new to the site, make sure to check out our review and giveaway section because we have several AMAZING giveaway’s each month!

Of course, the flaw in my plan was that I hate hairspray (so sticky, and if it lands on my face I feel so gross, gross, gross!) so  my curled hair would fa ... Read More

Dress like Jem in a Modern Way (Truly Outrageous?!)

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

jem

If you’re a child of the 80’s, then you MUST know who Jem is! (Basically the Hannah Montana of her time, only in cartoon form.) I had a Jem doll and that doll was amazing – especially since her earrings LIT UP. I remember being really excited about that, mock not! Anyway. In a continuation of a them of using cartoons as fashion inspiration, I thought of Jem. While she actually wore a LOT of different outfits on the show (there is an entire website dedicated to the cartoon wardrobe for Jem) her iconic outfit was the pink dress, fringed belt and  pink shoe ensemble. Purple eyeshadow and star-shaped earrings helped make it extra fabulous. So, how do we take Jem, a childhood idol, and put it into a modern interpretation for today? Because, I’m sure you could find exact replicas of her outfit somewhere for Halloween, but this isn’t about Halloween costumes. This is about clothing that represents Jem. Which mean it’s gotta be about fun. The most kick ass fun stuff EVAR.

Jem’s Fashion Do’s:

Never shy away from polka-dots. They aren’t scary. Purples, pinks and aqua blues are your go-to colors. Fishnets! Colored belts of ever ... Read More

Steal this British Beauty’s DOCTOR WHO style: Cowgirl Boots

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

doctor who boots

Digging the boots on Doctor Who’s new companion as featured in the new DW promo poster? Me too. Even as winter fades (and I silently cheer), we don’t have to give up all of our boots. After all, you can’t just kill a boot fetish like *snap* that!  Cowgirl boots are fun for Spring. Pair them with a jean skirt, or a pretty embroidered sun dress. You can pull them out again in the Fall. And because they aren’t strictly a one season trend, I think they’re a great investment. Which means you MIGHT want to invest in a pair that’s expensive enough that you know it’ll last. But if the boots seem like more of a whim, go for the least expensive ones.

The new Doctor Who companion is Karen Gillan, and her name on the show is Amy Pond. Technically I’ve seen her on the show before, as she was in the episode “The Fires of Pompeii” (an AMAZING episode) as “Soothsayer” but she wasn’t a crucial character, and I’m not even sure if we saw her face. Anyway, she’s back as a NEW character. It’s difficult for me to look at her hair and not want to dye mine red like hers. Why can’t I be a ginger, too? ... Read More

flower headbands for women

In the season 1 episode of Secret Diary of a Callgirl season 3, Hannah wore a very vibrant flower headband. You’d be hard-pressed to find anything more perfect for Spring than a floral headband. So if you’re planning to indulge in some “gardening” for your Spring wardrobe, I’ve provided a few suggestions below. Also included are a selection of flower earrings, if you aren’t into accessorizing your hair.

Everything is super affordable, well below the $100 mark. In fact, everything is well below the $50 mark! Which means that if you find yourself loving the style, you might invest in more than one flower headband. It’s not a ... Read More

What Would Damon Give Elena for Valentine’s Day?

Friday, January 29th, 2010

damon elena

Are you a fan of The Vampire Diaries? I have been from the start, and while many people love the relationship between Elena and Stefan, I’ve always preferred Elena/Damon. As episodes go by, we see more and more reasons to like them together. Which is exciting, because you gotta know it’s gonna happen SOMETIME. Anyway, I came across a gorgeous video on YouTube by KillerPandaJr, set to the Florence and the Machine song “Cosmic Love” (video below). This got me to thinking of what Damon might give to Elena for Valentine’s Day. Which got me shopping. And that’s always fun for me.

The restrictions I set for myself:

– Nothing too cheesy. – No necklaces, since Elena already has one she always wears. – I have to see a way for the writer’s to make it happen that Damon would give this to Elena, even as their relationship is now. – Steer clear of things he would only give anonymously.

So, I hope you like how I did! Let me know – but be gentle! I included some things that have an antique feel so that Damon could put them in a box and perhaps say they were Katherine’s and she should have them since she’s Elena’s great-great-great-great-great grandmother. The sleep mask is something I can see him passive aggressively giving her with a comment about how if she’s going to hang out with Stefan all n ... Read More

Anyanka’s Amulet (Green is the New Thing!)

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

The Anyanka Amulet

The Anyanka Amulet from BigBadToyStore.com.

For fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, they know all about Anya’s amulet. (Or Anyanka, as was her full name when she was a vengeance demon!) But you don’t need to be a fan of Buffy or Anya or know anything about that to appreciate the beauty of a gorgeous green pendant necklace. And if you ARE a fan, and had considered buying the replica – I think you’ll find it’s  more meaningful to have something that’s unique and a little less, erm… generic’. Plus, the finds I have put in this post are much less expensive than the replicas you can find online.
