We had a pretty bad winter this year--probably one of the worst I've ever experienced anyway. So even though I've never been a huge fan of sweltering hot and humid temperatures (I'm more of a fall/spring kind of girl), I promised myself that I wasn't going to complain this summer. But I'm sorry, having sweat and eyeliner dripping down my face in the middle of the day isn't exactly my idea of fun and leisure. Seriously, it's NOT cute!
Salma Hayek was looking good yesterday, hanging out in West Hollywood with her 6-year-old daughter, Valentina. She was dressed in a simple but stylish outfit and instead of wearing her hair sleek and straight like usual, she was finally rocking her natural curls. I loved it! But how the heck is Salma keeping those curls so bouncy and frizz-free during the summertime?Continue Reading >
Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend the use of baby powder on actual babies. Huh? That's because "reports indicate that talc or cornstarch in baby powder can injure a baby's lungs." If you are going to use it, it is recommended that you pour it out carefully and keep it away from a baby's face.
But wait, before you run out and get rid of any baby powder you have laying around you may want to consider other uses for it because it turns out baby powder is not just for babies.
I've been getting my hair blown out in Dominican salons for as long as I can remember, so I can honestly say I've seen and heard it all. But I've never experienced what one Dominican salon from NYC's Financial District, Century 27 Beauty Salon, recently endured. A Postal Service worker furious about a botched hairdo literally went storming in there in a rage, destroying the entire place. Who does that?
When the hair oil craze first began I was NOT into it. Just the thought of putting oil in my hair and be left with greasy results made me absolutely want to cringe. But after months of extensive research and discovering that things like coconut oil and argan oil could actually leave my strands healthier, softer, shiner and stronger, I finally gave in and decided to give it a shot. And let me tell you girl, I haven't looked back. Not only do hair oils work wonders but they stimulate growth too!Continue Reading >
I was browsing through some old photos of Jessica Alba the other day and couldn't help but notice there was something different. Alba is one of the last celebrities I'd ever associate with plastic surgery, but her nose bridge does look a lot thinner than it looked back in 2008. Could she have undergone rhinoplasty? Who knows but these two side-by-side photos say a lot!
If there's one thing I'm anal about, it's my eyebrows. Maybe it's because my naturally thick and long brows require high maintenance or maybe I've seen too many bad brows in my lifetime. Either way, I definitely know a thing or two when it comes to brow mistakes. Don't think you need tips? If you're still sporting tadpole brows that date back to the 90s or brows so dark they look like you filled them in with a Sharpie, then you might want to sit down and read this. And yes girl, there is such thing as too big and bold!Continue Reading >
Dandruff is annoying and embarrassing. No, it's not life threatening or anything and I guess if dandruff is the worst of your problems, you should count your blessings. Pero aquí entre nos, you are allowed to complain about it. I mean it is aggravating and can be so noticeable at times--total confidence killer.
Fortunately, there are some home remedies you can try to minimize and get rid of dandruff flakes.
You know that saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade?" Well, they should really change that saying because there is so much more that you can do with lemons than just make lemonade.
Did you know that you can use lemons in your beauty routine in multiple ways? I really think the saying could be modified to "when life gives you lemons, use them to make yourself even more beautiful." Let me show you how.
It's hard to believe that Chiquinquirá Delgado is actually 41 years old. The former Venezuelan TV host, model and actress could very easily pass for 30. She's hands down one of the hottest Latina celebrities right now. But was she just blessed with amazing genes or has she had some help from plastic surgery? Chiquinquirá has yet to confirm she's had any work done, but if you look at photos of her during her Miss Venezuela days and snaps of her today, she definitely looks different!Continue Reading >
