Darn Cold! Would You Put On A Fur Trapper Hat This Winter?

Fur hats are HOT this season, just like fur jackets in every faux fabric + color you can imagine. For the past couple of days, we've seen the deep freeze making its appearance.

Nothing like a warm, cozy winter hat to help you battle the frigid elements.

We like the classic, fur trapper hat, and yes.....it comes in plenty of faux fur styles. The hat is TOASTY and sort of  goofy-looking and sexy at the same time.

And a faux fur trapper hat will NOT bust your budget. We found one at Forever21 for $14.99!

And we found tons of these super warm winter hats at FurHatWorld for $29.95.

Celebs wear them around, too. We've seen Nicollette Sheridan, Rihanna, Jessica Alba + Kate Hudson doing the fur hat thing.

Would you rock a faux fur trapper hat this winter?

2014: Definitely Year Of BIG Butts, Real Or Not

Between JLo, Iggy, Nicki and Kim, 2014 has been the year of BIG butts, and it appears that all this ample-ness will be spilling out into the new year.

Not sure whose behind is REALLY real or REALLY fake. But whatever the case, the Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL, remains a very popular cosmetic surgery.

So let's take a further look. You can spend tons of time in the gym doing tons of squats + lunges to create a better butt. But---

The Brazilian Butt Lift can also design a great-looking behind in just a couple of hours.

RealSelf.com gives an excellent analysis of the BBL:

"A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) uses a person's own fat to naturally augment and shape the buttocks. A plastic surgeon first performs liposuction to remove fat from other areas of the body (often the stomach, hips, and thighs), then transfers that fat to the buttocks. Additional liposuction can be done around the butt to improve the appearance of lift and contour."
Average Price: $6,650.

And take a LOOK at these BEFORE + AFTER Pics:

No you can see why designing your own butt is in such high demand.

Using your own fat can offer these advantages:

No foreign body implanted
Low rate of infection
Improved contour to the areas where the fat was harvested from
Minimal incisions required

Makes you wonder who in Hollywood has chosen the BBL over the hard work-out gym routine.

Simple, Home Recipe For Brighter, Whiter Nails

If you're constantly fooling around with dark nail polishes, then you know how dull + yellowed nails can look when you remove the lacquer and see your bare nails for real.

What causes the nasty discoloration?

The pigments in the darker shades can result in deep staining on the nail plate.

So, how do we continue to enoy our vampier manis + pedis without having to worry about the polish dyes yellowing our nails?

You could try a base coat BEFORE you apply the colored polish. This clear coat not only helps color to adhere, but also SEALS + PROTECTS the nail plate from staining.

But we suggest this simple, home recipe for brighter, whiter nails, because it really works.

All you need:

1 Tbsp.lemon juice added to 3 Tbsp. olive oil in a small bowl.

Dunk nails into the lemon/oil mixture. Soak for 10 minutes. Then rinse with lukewarm water + dry. Apply moisturizing lotion to seal in all the good stuff.

The lemon acid will lift stains and brighten, while the olive oil provides wonderful hydration for healthier nails.

Khloe Kardashian Hits Gym To Maintain Big Fab Fanny

We don't know Khloe Kardashian, but her butt has become the BUZZ everywhere, because it appears to have gotten VERY big + round in the last year.

Even older sister Kim who is known for her extremely ample behind, wise-cracked about Khloe's fanny on Sunday's episode of "Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons."

"Khloe's ass is so big, you guys. It's so big. She's gotta like lose a couple LBs. It's huge!" Kim told her sister Kourtney and Scott Disick.

Scott was stunned: "What? You guys are famous for big butts. You guys lose your butts we may all lose our money."

And Kim responded: "But hers is like out of control. I don't care, I want a flat ass now."

We don't believe a word Kim is saying. Maybe she doesn't like the booty competition.

Is Khloe's big, fab fanny for REAL?

We can't prove it. If it is fake, then why go to the gym? Wouldn't you only enlarge your butt by working out hard? But Khloe swears by Gunnar Fitness.

Squats and lunges are the BEST ways we know to really design a firmer, rounder butt. Check out these great butt- blasters with weights.

Here are NOW and BEFORE photos of Khloe's behind.

You be the judge, because it's quite a mystery to us.

Will you tune in to the first ever "People Magazine Awards Show" tonight at 9 PM on NBC?

We will surely take a peek.

Kate Hudson will be glamming up the red carpet, and as of late, this chick has been nailing EVERY event in perfect style.

We know she's good pals with designer Stella McCartney, so that means an elegant dress for sure.

And when it comes to makeup + hair, Kate looks gorgeous. The transformation in the last couple of years has been stunning.

We don't know what this sexy, mom-of-two has been doing to look this fab, but we salute her.

The first annual People Magazine Awards might not be as elite a gathering as the Academy Awards Show, but the 2-hour event is being held at the Beverly Hilton and will feature a bunch of A-listers. Not too shabby. We think this is a MUST-see.

Victoria Justice Does Justice To Grunge: Long Plaid Flannel Shirt

Sometimes you just want to go super casual + grunge. And when it comes to a long plaid flannel shirt, it's all you really need.

Take a look at actress Victoria Justice hitting the streets of New York City yesterday. The 21-year-old star is effortlessly chic + modern in her take on grunge.

Maybe because she is so pretty, she looks great even when she isn't trying hard.

We like the boyfriend plaid flannel shirt, because the length is longer. We think Victoria is laying down all the right notes with this laid-back ensemble: 

Ripped jeans, suede booties, tee shirt and trendy fringe bag.

We found a copy-cat here at AmericanEagleOutfitters for $39.95.

How many plaid, flannel shirts so you own?

Desperate For The Perfect Blow-Out In A Box? Try New Make It Straight

The perfect blow-out. It usually only exists in a salon with a pro behind the machine.

But what if you were seeking the perfect blow-out in a box?

Is that a real possibility? Or a waste of time + cash?

According to the company,  that launched their NEW D.I.Y. blow-out kit, yes, you CAN achieve straight, shiny, healthy hair without the formaldehyde.

It's called, Make It Straight by DeveloPlus. And it's about $10, at Walgreens.

Make It Straight is a hair straightening system that avoids formaldehyde. All it takes is one application and you're on the straight + narrow, so to speak:

Innovative Formula Helps Straighten while Repairing Damaged Hair
  • Promotes Salon Blowout Results
  • Lasts Up to 20 Shampoos
  • Helps Eliminate Curl & Frizz
  • One Easy Application

We have NEVER tried this straightening kit, because our locks are straight to begin with, but this kit appears to be a decent D.I.Y. way to obtain smooth, straight hair even after several shampoos (the company claims 20 shampoos).

Amazon sells it, too. And it's received 3 1/2 *** stars as a product rating.

We would suggest reading all the reviews here BEFORE trying a new product near the holidays, because if it comes out lousy, well, that just ruins your important day.

Wow: White Jumpsuits Stealing Spotlight This Holiday Season

We happen to LOVE the color white, as well as its creamy sisters---ivory + winter white, etc.

Celebrities have been slipping into long + lean-looking, all-white jumpsuits as of late. And we are "heart-ing" this amazing style. It's elegant, classic, clean + crisp.

Does a white jumpsuit appear too summer-y in the cold, dark days of winter fast approaching?

Well, not to us...even the glam sleeveless designs.

Let's take a peek:

Emma Watson, Beyonce + Bella Thorne all look beautiful + chic in their white, v-neck jumsuits.

We found a gorgeous copy-cat at revolveclothing.com. In fact, we think this Avilla Jumpsuit by Trina Turk is the BOMB ($398). Only sad thing, size ZERO is all that's left at the moment.

White jumpsuits are SELLING OUT just about everywhere.

We hunted down this long-sleeved, plunging white jumpsuit from BooHoo.com ($35).

Tone It Up! How Toners Do 3 Great Things For Your Complexion

Back in the day, we were putting on Seabreeze toner with a good, ole cotton swab to ZAP zits + knock back the greasies with a major STING to the face.

Now, toners have reduced the strong alcohol level, but STILL perform 3 great things for your complexion:

1. CLEANSE the pores. Toners help get rid of whatever junk + debris is left behind when you're done washing your face. It helps prevent future break-outs and heals the acne you're dealing with at the moment.

2. HYDRATE the skin. Toners saturate your face and neck. You can find toners you just spritz on, to avoid the old-fashioned cotton ball approach. Toners help balance the complexion, nourish it with a good formula of nutrients and vitamins. Every toner is different. One with rose water for instance, would provide a calm, smooth effect with soothing properties for redness

3. REFRESH the complexion. Toners allow the skin to feel clean and healthy, especially during those cold, dry, winter days and nights. Think of toners like a nice bath for the complexion. The skin looks and feels smooth and radiant, without the dry, flaky appearance and too-tight pores.

Toners are a very good thing for your complexion. Choose wisely. We found tons of toners just at Amazon alone. Take a look right here.
