Anyone that knows me, knows I'll go through great lengths for a perfectly smooth and frizz-free blowout. I've made appointments after work for crying out loud!

Was anyone else shocked by how natural-looking Nicki Minaj looked at the 2013 MTV Music Awards? I mean let's be honest here, the girl was unrecognizable. I almost couldn't handle it. Don't get me wrong--she looked GREAT!

7 Shocking nail tricks & tips that will change your life

So I have a confession to make: I suck at painting my own nails. You heard me--I'm horrible!
