best humidifiers

Last year I was dedicated to the cause of finding a humidifier. I have a weird thing where I keep my fan on in my office a lot, even during the winter months. And my skin does suffer for this weird habit. Ergo, I decided everything would be fixed with a humidifier. Well, I AM glad I have it – although I should be using it more often.

What I picked was a cool humidifier type without filters. I thought I was lucking out not having to buy filters all the time, but what I didn’t realize was that I’d still have to clean it every month with bleach and vinegar (yum). So much work!

Crane Adorable 1 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier $38.99 : Had I known this existed, I’ll admit I would have gotten this particular humidifier. I will also admit that ‘humidifier’ is proving difficult for me to spell!

Shakira will be Furious with Demi Moore

Got hips? Demi don't!

Got hips? Demi don't!

We know that magazines photoshop. And now that they know that we know – they’re taking greater liberties. Such is the case with the December W cover with Demi Moore. Fellow bloggers are calling it the worst photoshopped cover ever. The quest for perfection led someone to overlook the fact that they COMPLETLEY REMOVED HER LEFT HIPBONE in the process of making her appeal to us all as the unattainable perfection we should all want. So this means we have to remove entire bones now? I’m NOT signing up for that, guys! I also refuse to stop eating all carbs! (But I AM focusing more on whole grains – go me?)

Hips don't lie? OH YES THEY DO. Shakira was WRONG.

How did no one miss this mistake before it went to print?

It's...hideous! HIDE. Credit: Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage.com

Heidi Klum hosted the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year, and while she didn’t walk in the show she looked amazing with her post-baby body. Indeed, it’s only been six weeks since she PUSHED A HUMAN OUT OF HER BODY. Yowza. (It’s her fourth child, a girl named Lou. Which I think is an unfortunate name for a baby girl. Why do celebrities make everything so difficult?)

While it’s pretty impossible for people to make Heidi look ugly, they can still put her in downright hideous clothing. And at the VS fashion show – that’s what they did. She opened the show wearing…what you’d imagine a high school teen to produce if she only had ten minutes and ten bucks. Heidi – come on. You wouldn’t let this pass on Project Runway!

I think we all recall & ... Read More

Get Metallic Eyes

Friday, July 31st, 2009

metallic eyes

Become a Hollywood glamazon by adding some shimmer to your eyes. And this means¬† MORE than just some shimmery white eyeshadow highlighting your browbone . That’s amateur hour. What I’m talking about is something with WOW effect.

I know that with holiday parties coming just around the corner you’ll want to do something different with your eyes. Rather than labor in front of the mirror for hours and come up with nothing different – or having tried to go SO different that it looks so bad you have to wash your face and start over – I’ve come with some tips to get metallic eyes.

Just do a swipe of a liquid eyeliner on your top lids for some pizzaz. Or use new Mascaras from Cover Girl that have the slightest hint of metallic in them to make your eyes POP. Want more drama? Try doing your entire top lid in gold shadow! A cheaper brand that has HIGH pigment in their eye products is the L’Oreal HIP line. I’ve used many of their products and I really like them. Whether you’re using metallic eyeshadow, metallic eyeliner or metallic eye makeup of any kind…you’re going to look stunning.

50% OFF! Christian Siriano for Payless

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

christian siriano payless

Important EDIT: Christian Siriano just announced on Oprah that everything he has done for Payless is 50% off. Go to Oprah.com to find the Payless store nearest you and to get the coupon. There ARE a few things that might be nice but a smart shopper knows that even though something is suddenly only $15.00 doesn’t make it a good purchase if you still don’t love it. I suspect this coupon rouse might be because his items aren’t selling.

Christian Siriano is doing shoes for Payless, which is instantly a mood-lifter. (He was the winner of Project Runway, remember?) Except…well, until you SEE the shoes. I’m torn. First off, the shoes and boots Siriano has done look very much like the ones designer Rodarte did a while ago. But my biggest problem is that I’m not sure if many of these shoe designs are wearab ...

Look Thinner with Colorblock Dresses and Colorblock Skirts

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

colorblock dresses on sale

The use of colorblock in clothing is genius. It can really trick the eye into making you look a lot more thin and shapely than you are. I was realizing this the other day when Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) was wearing a colorblock dress on Gossip Girl and it made her waist look so nipped and fit. When you type or say colorblocking enough times, it starts looking and sounding weird. But the actual color blocking effect? It’s genius!

How does colorblocking work? Visual magic! It uses blocks of color to shape you. As you know, white looks larger and black makes things look smaller. But more than that, you can actually sculpt the form using wide lines or thin lines of color down the middle of a dress. Be smart: color block!

Alyson Hannigan Gives a Cat Tip! Soft Claws for Cats

soft claws

Alyson Hannigan's cat. "Here is the tail eater!" From Hannigan's @alydenisof

Alyson Hannigan (Buffy, How I Met Your Mother) has a Twitter account, and I’m so glad she does because she is one of the sweetest celebrities EVER. She was recently talking about Halloween and tweeted, “My cat is making it hard to decorate for Halloween. She is eating the tails off paper rats. It’s like she KNOWS they are rats!!!” Adorable! And she then posted a picture of her cat, which shows the black rats that she was putting on her steps. I love those Halloween decorations ... Read More

Bargain News! Sweater Dresses on Sale

sweaterdresses on sale

I love sweater dresses. But sweaters are expensive. And dresses are expensive. So much sweater dresses are – you must be a genius because you guessed it – expensive. But I worked to find you sweater dresses on sale for under $100.

Sweater dresses for fall are perfect to wear all the time. You can also wear them for winter, these sweater dresses are great with boots and tights.  Sweater dresses and tights? Love it. Sweater dresses and boots? Love it.

Victoria’s Secret is loaded with sweater dresses, but most of them are 1) Way too form fitting/sexy to want to wear without being self-conscious, 2) Way too expensive! This is why Victoria’s Secret Sweater Dresses are mostly a no-go for me. However I did find one that I like a lot and included down below, it’s a gorgeous chocolate brown color and looks like it would move well. It has enough detail to make it interesting, but it’s all in a solid color so you can layer it with accessories like crazy (rings, tights, boots, hats, whatever).
