Think of it as a reverse French manicure. It's basically a two-tone paint job. Dita Von Teese is sporting scarlet nails and leaving a small white crescent at the nail bed. Very dramatic and clean. And this trend was actually quite popular back in the 1920s when glamorous movie stars began wearing this interesting manicure.
The moon manicure has been featured on some of the fall runways, and the Dior show really catapulted the look onto the mainstream fashion pulse.
We happen to think this is a very sophisticated, lovely look for nails for fall 2009.
Women here in the US have been begging parent company, Unilever, to sell to us, what the lovely ladies of the Philippines already know. And that is, there's something special in Pond's Age Miracle Daily Resurfacing Cream.
Deirdre Gonzales, a business entreprenuer from Cebu City Philippines, now based in Florida, wrote an article about the Pond's day cream, which has become one of the most popular skin care treatments in the Philippines:
".......considered today as one of the most popular beauty products in the Philippines as well as in other countries. The brand is the ponds age miracle cream. The ponds age miracle cream uses some of the most technologically advanced formulations that specifically target the 7 signs of skin aging, which are fine lines and wrinkles which are usually seen on the eyes and on the forehead, rough skin texture, uneven skin tone which is usually the result of sun or UV rays, skin dullness, visible pores, blotches or age spots, and dryness of the skin. Through targeting these signs, the ponds age miracle cream is known to stop the aging process."
The Pond's Age Miracle Cream was also featured on the Tyra Banks talk show last February, where it was labeled 'Asia's cult dream,' and, "it's a # 1 seller, the most awarded and it's beaten prestige brands in blind tests. The cream is one of the best kept beauty secrets of the east. "
And women have been going wild trying to track some down, ever since.
Who wouldn't want to rub some onto their skin? Unfortunately, Unilever has not made the Pond's cream available in the United States at this time.
But there is always Ebay.com, folks. And yes, Ebay sells a number of Pond's Age Miracle Daily Resurfacing Creams. Most come in at under $20, with a $10 shipping fee. Look here:http://tiny.cc/hRClU
We have not tried this so-called miracle in a jar, but many Asian women seem to adore the product.
If you have tried this Pond's Age Cream, please leave us a few comments. We are curious to learn how well the cream works.

Another says, "I wanted to shout from the rooftops!"
The diminutive and stylish designer with some 'fierce' hair, has put together a 'fierce' fall makeup collection.

1. Kerastase Oleo-Curl Mist ($34, http://www.kerastase.com/). Vanessa is hooked on the oil-based curling agent. "This formula amps up my waves. I apply it after towel-drying my hair, then scrunch the waves and go!"
And we recently caught him on TV, talking about building a great butt. Yeah, he's like a sculptor. David Kirsch claims he can take any butt: flat, big, small, fallen, and design you a perfect rear view.
And we believe him, because he has a great new manual on how to get a nicely shaped rear. It's called, The Butt Book. And it will soon be available at Barnes and Noble bookstores.What we adore about this butt-how-to-manual, is its simplicity. David Kirsch says you don't need to use costly cardiovascular machines or clumsy strength-training devices.
We are very intrigued by this new DDF skin care collection, and for the simple fact, that the spice turmeric is in the formula.
The line is called: DDF Advanced Protocol with Turmeric Complex.
Most of you are probably sitting there and saying, so what--- it's a spice used in Indian and south Asian cooking. Big deal.
However, science is discovering what ancient times have always known about this pungent, bright yellow-orange spice. It contains a lot of power. Turmeric is a strong anti-oxidant.
BeautyTipToday, has written about the beauty of Turmeric powder in a previous article. We learned the value of eating turmeric to protect against breast cancer and to re-vitalize skin.
"Turmeric powder is an anti-oxidant, anti-septic, and anti-inflammatory-acting spice. It also has iron and potassium in it, and belongs to the ginger family.
Ayurvedic healers consider turmeric to be a varnya herb, which means, enhances your complexion. Its strong anti-bacterial properties fight pimples and breakouts. And many women lighten or even out their skintone with a paste containing turmeric powder.
Dr. Andrew Weil talked about the powerful, anti-cancer benefits of turmeric powder in an article at his website back in 2003:
"Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is the yellow spice most familiar in Indian cooking and American-prepared mustard. Not only do I think that it is safe to take after breast cancer treatment, I think it would be helpful. The reason is that turmeric affects hormones that promote inflammation and cell proliferation, processes that seem to underlie most cancers."
And now DDF has made turmeric complex an important key to its skin care collection.
Let's look at one of these treatments:
DDF Advanced Protocol Firming Cream ($130, 1.7 oz, fine stores, and online at http://www.drugstore.com/)
Hydrates to measurably improve skin firmness.
The advanced formula contains a breakthrough Turmeric Complex to protect skin's surface from free radical damage and provide superior hydration to strengthen skin's moisture barrier.
DDF Advanced Firming Cream helps reverse the appearance of aging, instantly firming and tightening skin for a radiant, younger-looking complexion.
Neutralizes 82% of free radicals to minimize surface damage
Instantly firms and tightens
Fortifies skin's moisture barrier
It's a bit pricey, but it sounds like a promising advancement in anti-aging skin care.
If anyone would know how to keep makeup on during a long theatrical performance or movie set, it would be Maurice Stein. So we are intrigued by the simplicity of CS's Super Sealer. Just a few spritzes and go!
This is what Cinema Secrets Super Sealer is designed to do:
1.Makeup Sealer: Great to use over any type of makeup to seal and protect makeup from the elements. Matte formula eliminates shine.

We are hoping it works for our uber oily skin.

We've talked a lot about jumping rope to stay fit and torch a bunch of calories. And now, it's time to hula-hoop.
In about 20 minutes, you can burn 200 calories. And most importantly, blast belly fat and big thighs. And develop a sexy butt.
And if you recall using a hula-hoop during your childhood years, then you know how much fun it can be.
This ain't your mama's neon pink hula-hoop. Modern Hoops are now fashioned with weights inside for the extra workout burn. Some hoops come with pretty bling and colors. And a few hoops are able to collapse to a smaller size for easy travel.
We like any easy exercise that whittles your waist. And Christabel Zamor has a new book out--- Hooping: A Revolutionary Fitness Program. She claims that if you hoop it up 4 times a week, in a month, your belly, butt, and thighs will look amazing.
Maybe some of you take hoop workout classes already.
Check out http://www.hoopgirl.com/. You can buy a professional hoop here for about $30. And the site explains the new modern style hula-hooping:
HoopGirl Hoops are constructed of heavy weight durable plastic tube which is thick and resilient. They are larger in size than "traditional" toy hoops which makes them rotate slower so they are easier to keep spinning. The fabric and vinyl tapes create friction so the hoop "sticks" to your hips very effectively. This allows many people who could never hoop to experience easy success!
And hooping is excellent exercise for all ages. In other words, size, sense of rythym, and age, have nothing to do with skill, when it comes to hooping.
There is also a website, http://www.hooping.org/ that even shows you how to make your own hula hoop or to start your own hoop group in town.
As the old saying goes: "What goes around, comes around."
