Kelly Rowland Admits To Fans Her Do-It-Yourself Brow Bleaching

'A lil bleach ain't hurt nobody!'

That's what singer Kelly Rowland recently announced on her Instagram page, providing proof that she admits to a little d.i.y. brow bleaching.

Take a look at the photos:

Kelly Rowland ALWAYS looks lovely, but bleaching brows cam be tricky beauty business.

You DON'T want to bleach brows too many shades lighter, because it just appears weird + alien-like. We made that faux pas before a number of years ago.

The new mama to son Titan looks like she has lifted her brow color one shade or two lighter.

If you leave the bleach on for too long you can turn eyebrows brassy blonde.

But if you're a brave, do-it-yourselfer, then try this for $6. We found Jolen Creme Bleach at Walgreens.

Please follow directions carefully and watch the clock!

Copy Model Kendall Jenner's $90 Gray Crew-Neck Tee-Shirt For $7 Old Navy

We all like to COPY models + actresses who have great beauty + fashion sense.

That's a no-brainer. But most of us don't have the endless funds of these super-rich stylish celebs.

The BEST thing to do is COPY...with a decent knock-off. Watch how we do it.

Here's model Kendall Jenner hanging out in L.A...looking gorg + laid-back in grey skinny jeans + grey, crew-neck tee.

Her tee-shirt costs $90. Oh, yeah. It's a Frame Denim Le Boyfriend cotton tee-shirt, at Net-A-Porter.

You CAN COPY the look. It's a grey tee-shirt. Period. You can find one for soooooo much less.

Look what we hunted down. A great-looking, grey crew-neck tee from OldNavy ($7)!

NO one will know this isn't a $90 tee-shirt. Trust us. Your $7 tee can do the job!

Sandra Bullock Embarrassed By People Mag's Most Beautiful Status: Deserving....And She's 50!

Gotta LOVE actress Sandra Bullock...and the brand new title she is sort of embrarassed by:

World's Most Beautiful Woman of 2015.

Work it, girl, because you are SO deserving!

Sandra is 50! And a gorgeous 50, we might add.

We like seeing People mag celebrate the older woman, and we also enjoy seeing the unassuming, Oscar winner as the symbol of celebrity beauty.

Let's be frank---Everything in our culture has to do with fawning over youth, especially with women, so this is a great recognition for all to admire. 

Plus we adore what she said about her new title:

"What is beautiful is the honor of being Louis' mother."

So, how does this effortless beauty maintain her gorgeousness?

This is what she told Marie Claire mag in 2009, 6 years ago, about her  8-minute beauty routine:

‘I use a face cloth and Artistry cream for my daily beauty regime,’ says Sandra. ‘I put mascara on today because I wanted to make a bit of an effort,’ she explains.

My entire routine takes eight minutes since I have this mop on my head I need to wrangle. I wash, condition, put product in if it's a little haywire. I like it when it's messy-in-your-face bedhead. It looks like it just happened.’

The 44-year-old actress, who shares a rather intimate love scene with Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds, and who has reportedly holidayed with Reynolds and his wife Scarlett Johansson, does admit that staying in shape isn’t quite such a speedy process.

‘People ask, “How do actresses do it?” Um – they pay us to do this in order to look good on film,’ admits the straight-talking Sandra.

And what exactly keeps the Speed star in such tip-top condition? ‘I do Pilates, kickboxing, weight training and when I’m at home, I run or ride a bike. If I can work out every day I

And what exactly keeps the Speed star in such tip-top condition? ‘I do Pilates, kickboxing, weight training and when I’m at home, I run or ride a bike. If I can work out every day I will.’

We found Sandra's Artistry Cream System here at Amazon.

It Burns But Works: Cinnamon Cassia Oil For Plumper, Pinker Lips!

We have NOT tried this yet, but we have seen a number of beauty YouTubers putting on the BURN for PLUMPER, PINKER lips.

Hollywood has gone cray-cray for sexy BIG lips. This trend continues to push the envelope.

But our simple method might just be what you need.

In barely a couple of minutes, you CAN achieve BIGGER, NATURAL-LOOKING LIPS.

All it takes is a $7 purchase of a small bottle of this:

100% Pure Cinnamon Cassia Oil. You could find this in supermarkets, but we hunted down this essential oil at Amazon, for $6.99 + FREE shipping.

WARNING: This stuff can BURN nasty on you, this with care. And if you have ANY allergy to cinnamon, then stay AWAY from this.

Check out this excellent vid how-to by YouTube's Huda Kattan.

Buying lip plumpers can be quite expensive. And getting dermal fillers to get instant BIG LIPS costs tons!

So, this cassia oil is just another cheaper, beauty option.

This military look NEVER seems to disappear, and at the moment it's running HOT.

Camo skinny jeans are especially perfect for riding this all-american trend.

Flats, pumps, it's ALL good. And camo skinnies come in lots of colors, too.

Check out these by Hudson for about $200. SOLD OUT, just about everywhere.

On a fashion budget?

Then maybe these Papaya Clothing Camo Skinny Pants might be the fashionable answer

Sorry, RHOBH's Brandi Glanville: V-Shaping Cannot Fully Zap Away Cellulite

Look, cellulute, that dimply fat that likes to show up on women's thighs, butt, stomach and even arms, CANNOT be permanently removed. Period.

So RHOBH star Brandi Glanville, don't get TOO excited about showing the world your latest spa V-shaping cellulite treatments, because the experts know better.

Here's what NYC dermatologic surgeon Neil Sadick says about the common problem of cottage cheese fat removal.

"Regarding your cellulite, it can be reduced but never completely eradicated by any treatment. In our practice we typically use Cool Sculpting to de-bulk and reduce volume in an area, while the Smart Lipo is a great way to remove fat and gently tighten the skin."
(Read more here at

Velashape (V-shaping) is a non-invasive laser procedure that uses Radiofrequency and Infrared Light Energy to shrink fat cells and tighten the skin. It is FDA-approved and uses vacuum + tissue manipulation to tackle the deeper fat layers and  SMOOTH + TIGHTEN the body.

Yes, Brandi---you have a gorgeous figure and your butt looks great, but there is just so much this non-invasive, cosmetic treatment can do.

The reality TV star posted this recent photo on her Twitter page. Oh, Brandi... You are so naughty!

Is there any photo re-touching going on here? Who knows. Maybe Brandi just has a fine behind. At age 42, we must give credit where credit is due, though.

We do admire Brandi's honesty, but maybe some things are best kept hidden.
