If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Meet the new voices of VIVA GLAM…Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. They love lipstick. They love fashion. They want girls all over the world to have fun, but safely, with eyes wide open to the facts and fictions about women and HIV/AIDS.

Sizzling, sensuous and self-created the ladies are channeling their high-voltage diva energy for VIVA GLAM and igniting From Our Lips – the new MAC Cosmetics VIVA GLAM campaign. In honor of all of the women who are living with the HIV/AIDS virus, and those working to curb its spread, the MAC AIDS Fund will announce $2.5 million in new donations to fund model programs that address the vulnerabilities and inequities that place women at increased risk for HIV/AIDS.

Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper are visible and vocal, using their star power to inspire everyone to make a difference by purchasing the VIVA GLAM lipstick that bears their signature. With every cent of each VIVA GLAM going towards the MAC AIDS Fund, this is a lipstick that has the power to change the world. With the dynamic energy of these two new spokespeople the MAC AIDS Fund, having already raised over $150 Million to combat HIV/AIDS, is giving a voice and support to women – of All Ages, All Races, All Sexes and from all walks of life.

“I think it’s absolutely insane that some people have fewer rights than others, and I’m grateful that MAC has decided to focus on women while I’m a VIVA GLAM Spokesperson. I have so much to say and so much to share, and I’m going to let my lips and lipstick do the talking!” -Cyndi Lauper

Viva+Glam+Lady+Gaga MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and Viva Glam Gaga

“I’ve been familiar with the campaign and have been wearing MAC since I was ten years old. To be joining the likes of iconic former VIVA GLAM spokespeople is an honor. My new VIVA GLAM lipstick color is amazing. It’s very me – a bluish pink, great for everyday, a little bit ’80s. I hope that women buy this lipstick, and honor themselves and honor the cause.” -Lady Gaga

Do Something Beautiful: Help Haiti

 Do Something Beautiful: Help Haiti

Every day, I post about beautiful things you should buy. But today, I’m taking this opportunity to urge you to do something beautiful.

On Tuesday, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Haiti. More than 50,000 people are feared dead and 3 million more (one third of Haiti’s population) are left without access to food, water, shelter and electricity. Relief efforts are currently underway and you can play a part.

haiti+1 Do Something Beautiful: Help HaitiPlease make a monetary donation to one of the agencies responding to the Haitian earthquake relief. The situation is dire, and the people of Haiti are counting on our compassion and generosity. Every little bit helps, so don’t think you lack the means to make a difference. You know the money that you were saving to buy a new mascara, lip gloss or eye cream? Donate it to this very worthy cause. I guarantee you won’t miss it, and your small sacrifice could save someone’s life.

Yesterday, I took my ‘new jeans fund’ and split it amongst the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. New jeans would have been cute, but I couldn’t justify spoiling myself when there are so many people without bare necessities.

Visit CNN.com for a comprehensive list of charities that are providing critical assistance to those affected by the catastrophic earthquake.
