DIY: Put the Kibosh on Oily Hair With Baby Powder

If you maintain that you’ve NEVER let yourself go a couple of days without shampooing, then at least admit you’ve had oily hair as a result of too much anti-frizz serum. Thick and wavy-haired ladies, I think you know all … Continue reading

Mint is the Nail Color of the Summer

I am very obsessed with mint-colored everything. From the first time I heard Lady Gaga’s foretelling of summer fashion’s favorite new color in her “Marry the Night” music video, I was on a mission to purchase all the mint green items I could get my hands on.
