Get A Golden Glow With…LETTUCE?

Its no secret that when it comes to seasons, Summer is one of the most loved. Hemlines get shorter, sleeves become scarce but the abundance of sunshine gives a warm glow both inside and out. That golden glow is coveted long after the summer months have gone and often maintained through the use of self-tanning products like lotions, sprays and hours laying in tanning beds. Despite the many health risks associated with these not-so-sunny tanning methods, the sunless tanning industryRead more

Make Your Own Skinny Jeans!

Ahhh the “Skinny Jean”….a fashion forward look  we fought long and hard for years. Thinking they would make our stubby gams look less lean and lengthy and more like a top-heavy turkey leg, we clutched our favorite bootcuts like they were our first born. That is until we actually tried on a pair of skinnies and discovered we’d been wrong all along and purchased them immediately. From that day forward we were hooked. But replacing all of our trusty bootcutsRead more

Goody’s QuikStyle Paddle Brush – A Review

In case you missed our post on Influenster and the awesome Holiday Vox Box we were sent, today’s feature is all about the Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush. Retailing between  $9.99 and $13.99 (depending on the retailer) it’s a bit pricier than a regular paddle brush and the claims of faster drying time, we assume, are why. Speaking of claims, here’s what the Goody QuikStyle Brush says it can deliver: • Absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water for faster styling • Antimicrobial microfiber keeps the brushRead more

Say Bye Bye To Tarantula Eyes

We’ve spent more money on lash combs that we’d care to admit and have repurposed every last safety pin in the house when we’d lost our lash comb (yet again.) All in the endless pursuit of natural looking lashes rather than an eye full of spider legs. EWWW. Yes, we know that they were all the rage last season and on every runway from Chloe and Lanvin to Valentino and Mui Mui’s during their ‘11 Fall campaigns. Personally, we think they’re aRead more

Tat Yourself Commitment Free

Loving the look of ink is one of our guilty pleasures. The pain and commitment that comes with them, however, not so much. Yet try as we may, we just cant shake our love of cool tattoos and for the longest time we thought the only solution was a batch of temporary ones you’d see in grocery store vending machine. Rocking the same little mermaid as the screaming 6 year old in line behind us though is not a goodRead more

Hold the Sugar & Hide Your Jewels in Style!

To know us is to love our endless quest to find the dual purpose in everything, even items that we’d gladly deem well enough alone. Take the beautiful sugar bowls and apothecary jars of mornings passed. Uniquely stunning yet visually fresh, these bowls would hold sugar with pizzazz and became an anchor of style in every kitchen counter. But when faced with a few more baubles than would fit in our Secret Book Compartment or Stenciled Necklace Holder, we were forced to yet again, get creative.Read more

Moisten Your Locks Like Hula Honey Barbie

As the end of the year draws near we can’t help but notice the influence it’s had on us – mind, body and soul. The chill makes us unable to think about anything other than how cold it is, our skin is as dry and flaky as a biscuit and what the year’s worth of product  hasn’t wrecked in our hair the wind, rain and varying temperature has. We can eleviate one of those with the help of our newRead more
