Skin Color Gives Clues to Health?

woman+rosy+cheeks Skin Color Gives Clues to Health?Does skin color give clues to health? That’s what two UK researchers are saying. They have “found” that skin color affects how healthy and attractive they appear, and that diet may be crucial to achieving the most desirable complexion. The study will be published in the December issue of Springer’s International Journal of Primatology.

“Most previous work on faces has focused on the shape of the face or the texture of the skin, but one of the most variable characteristics of the face is skin color,” said Dr. Ian Stephen from the University of Bristol.

Though the researchers’ findings sound interesting, I’m not sure how much stock I can put in their experiment – given its narrow scope. All 54 participants were Caucasian, and the faces they were asked to manipulate and rate were all Caucasian too.

Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne

jo+malone+vanilla+and+anise Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise CologneIf you surveyed the perfumes on my vanity, you’d surely notice that the common thread amongst my favorites (the half empty bottles) is vanilla.

Most days, I smell like some variation of vanilla. But as I get older, I’m constantly searching for a more sophisticated take on the scent. I love vanilla, but I don’t want to smell like cake frosting 24/7.

So I was thrilled to recently make the acquaintance of Vanilla & Anise, the latest fragrance from Jo Malone – a spicy, modern interpretation of my favorite flava.

The Composition

Top notes: Sicilian Bergamot, Tunisian Neroli, Wild Fennel Flower, Star Anise
Middle notes: Oleander. Tuberose, Frangipani, Purple Vanilla Orchid
Base notes: Madagascar Clove, White Amber, Vetiver Bourbon, Vanilla Bourbon Absolute, Tonka

My New Nike Sneakers!

I was in the market for new kicks, so I headed over to nikestore.com to pick up a new pair. I’m one of a kind, so instead of purchasing some pre-made sneakers, I decided to design my own – and I’m so excited by the results. Check it…they even have my name on them!

They’ll arrive just in time for Christmas, so this is my gift to myself. I’m hoping that my new sneaks will encourage me to make more frequent trips to the gym.

Beautyblender: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

beautyblender+hot+pink+holiday Beautyblender: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

Let me speak frankly. If you’re applying your foundation with anything but the Beautyblender sponge, you’re doing it wrong. Look…I don’t mean to put you on blast, but I’m here to give it to you straight. And when I tell you that Beautyblender is, hands down, the best foundation applicator, I speak the truth.

The point of foundation is to fool the eye of the beholder into thinking you were blessed with a flawless complexion. But if you’re applying it incorrectly, or with inferior tools, you just look like you’re wearing a makeup mask. And who wants that? Nobody, that’s who. The difference between foundation that looks like foundation and foundation that looks like skin is Beautyblender.

Since I was introduced to Beautyblender in 2007, we have been in a monogamous relationship. It is the only tool I use to apply my foundation. Invented by Hollywood makeup artists, this sponge leaves you with a professional finish. Applying makeup with fingers or sharp-edged triangular sponges can waste makeup and can leave visible streaks. Beautyblender’s elliptical shape makes allows you to access hard-to-reach areas with ease. Its suede-like texture repels product, so your foundation actually ends up on your face – rather than absorbed by the sponge. And its unique curves fit the contours of your face, leaving your makeup dazzling and undetectable.

I even use it to apply my concealer and cream blushes. And if you have problem skin, I can’t recommend anything better for magically disguising blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Beautyblender is reusable (perfect for those green gals), latex-free, non-allergenic, and odor free…and makes a great holiday gift.

Give your beauty-loving BFF the gift of perfect skin with the Hot Pink Holiday Kit, which includes Beautyblender and 3 oz Blendercleanser in an organza drawstring carry pouch….tagged for gift giving!

You know who is also a fan of Beautyblender? My pal, and Celebrity Makeup Artist, Mario Dedivanovic. Watch the Beautyblender in action, as Mario makes up the beautiful face of his muse, Kim Kardashian.

Just thought you’d like to know that our favorite coffee joint just added a new caffeine concoction to their holiday drink lineup: the Caramel Brulee Latte.

They combined Starbucks espresso and steamed milk with a rich caramel sauce and topped it with whipped cream and shimmery pieces of caramel topping.
