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.

When we get our hearts broken, emotions run the gamut. We heal ourselves through tears, fill our iPods with sad love songs, and use Häagen-Dazs as an analgesic. But when things are going bad, sometimes the best revenge is looking good.

Kathy Griffin Is Going Straight To Hell

Posted on by daneen in Hair | Leave a comment

By the looks of promos for Kathy Griffin’s new special, she took my advice and ditched the blunt bangs. Was I right, or was I right? Kathy looks great! The preview is pretty brief, so I can’t tell whether she’s had help from hair extensions, a great blowout, or Botox. Whichever it is, I could really care less. Good for her…it takes ten years off the Emmy-winning comedienne.

I love Kathy and have been a die-hard devotee for years (I mean, only a superfan could appreciate her hilarity on Celebrity Mole: Hawaii). I can’t wait to see what she has to say about the Hollywood hapless on her sixth stand-up original for Bravo.

Kathy Griffin: Straight To Hell” airs Thursday, November 29 at 9 PM ET/PT. Watch what happens.

Smells Just Like It Should

Sometimes the easiest way to spoil yourself is to light a fragrant candle. My favorites are from Yankee Candle, the largest U.S. manufacturer of scented candles. Renowned for its true-to-life scents, the candle-making giant offers a wide assortment of fragrances and colors; so it’s a breeze to find a candle to match your décor and disposition.

My everyday favorites include Vanilla Lime and Lemon Lavender. For a festive fragrance, it doesn’t get any better than Christmas Wreath – it’s perfect for getting into the ho-ho-holiday spirit!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Oprah’s Favorite Things of 2007 list. Though Oprah made some fine choices, I have one recommendation for the media mogul.

buttercream This Line Takes The Cupcake!
If I had a list, I’d call it ‘The D-List’ (original, I know) – and everything on it would be from Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting line of products. I’ve been using the Buttercream Frosting Exfoliating Body Polish, Shower Crème, and Hand Crème for a couple of weeks, and my enthusiasm has not waned. In fact, my fondness grows stronger every day. Not only do the Buttercream Frosting products pamper my parched skin, they smell like heaven – a sweet tooth’s version of heaven, anyway.

jaqua This Line Takes The Cupcake!
Like vanilla frosting with a hint of fresh strawberries, Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting products smell so much like the real thing, I have to remind myself that they’re not edibile. I can only hope that Jaqua is developing hair care, shaving cream, toothpaste, antiperspirant, and contact lens solution…so that every square inch of me can smell saccharinely sweet.
