My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING
The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish.
Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING
Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle.
Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING
I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Halloween is just a few weeks away. Do you know what you’ll be this year? Why resort to cliches like ‘scary witch’ or ‘sexy nurse’ when MAC has ten Halloween inspired face charts with step-by-step instructions? Behold…the power of makeup.
Amphibian: A cool blue pool of shimmery aqua-reflections create your water sprite look. Float through the parade. Do the Wave.
Night Bloom: Fantasy blooms at midnight. Beautiful and expressive. This exotic floral arrangement will likely attract a few B’s (that’s boys).
Colour Spill: Colourful, minimal, abstract, modern, this Colour Spill loves to hang out where art’s the thing. If this is your canvas, your best accessory might be a frame.
Tronika: Part Robot, with a glimpse of Human, Tronika shows she’s hard-wired for Halloween techno-glamour.
Tribal: A striking mask of universal symbols. For all those new-age tribalists who consider Halloween a ritual.
She’s A Doll: Wide-eyed and with apple cheeks! A dolly mix of cutie and sweetie. Adorable!
Woody: A natural beauty. A woodsy nymph. Adroitly drawn lines in earthy organic tones articulate the look of wood. A tree-mendous look for eco-girls and -boys.
Space Diva: She comes from Out There. Her glittering metallic spaced-out looks make her a sexy, enigmatic rave at any Halloween party.
Skull Meister: Mr. Bones has nothing to hide – and dares you to expose your finest features – in ghoulish black and white. The ultimate shape and contour: X-ray style.
Play The Fool: With a little face painting, elements of this Renaissance harlequin prepare you for a mad-happy night of clowning around.
Boost Up Color Drops can be used to extend salon hair colorings and keep color fresh – or to instantly brighten, darken or add warmth to your regular hair color. In addition to its color enhancing properties, the product also moisturizes, invigorates, and conditions and replenishes lost protein. The best part? One shampoo and it’s back to the old you. “It’s like cosmetics for your hair,” Paves says.
Boost Up Color Drops are available in six shades: Beige, Black, Brown, Honey, Platinum and Red.
Get a .96 oz bottle for $39.95. Or purchase the Color Booster Explorer Kit from HSN (which includes a full-sized bottle of the Boost Up Color Drops plus shampoo, conditioner, shine serum and hair spray from Ken Paves’ new Healthy Hair line) for the same price. This is a no-brainer.
