Kim K Brings Back Granny Panties + Christie Brinkley Popularizes Granny Pantyhose

Okay...we're starting to wonder here.....Ponder this:

Last post we delved into the sudden popularity of granny panties, and how reality TV star Kim Kardashian started putting these high-waisted, old lady undies on BEFORE it was considered cool again.

And now, we have iconic model Christie Brinkley recreating a fascination with old lady pantyhose.

What gives?!

According to the latest fashion stats out there, BOTH granny panties + pantyhose are BACK on TREND in a major way.

Some give the credit to the royals' Duchess Kate for showing women around the globe that it is not only okay to cover legs, but to bring back a sense of ladylikeness with pantyhose.

But we have seen Christie Brinkley wearing pantyhose at red carpet events for several years now, BEFORE the Duchess came on the scene.

Why oh why would stunning Christie Brinkley ever wear old lady pantyhose?

 In an interview last year, Christie revealed that she swears by pantyhose that give her 'a sense of security'. 

 Let's face it.....our legs can look less than perfect with spider veins, discoloration around the knees, varicose veins, etc., so pantyhose deliver a smooth appearance with even, flawless skin tone

In fact, she gives out her FAVE pantyhose brand

"I call Noblesse by Fogal my secret stockings. They're so thin but give me a sense of security."

Take a look at Noblesse by Fogal

Smart gal, that Christie!

Thank Kim Kardashian For The Granny Panties Trend: Thong Sales Down

We must give credit where credit is due:

Kim Kardashian has been riding this fashion trend BEFORE the masses even thought it was cool.

We're talking about granny panties.

Yup.....Full, high-waisted briefs.

In Kim's case, she wears the old-fashioned undies when she wants to go naughty + very peek-a-boo. Check out how the fashion foward beauty teams up granny panties with see-through style:

Even the NY is talking about the quiet, granny panties trend slowly taking over.  The report finds that young woman are NOT wild about thongs.

..."Sales of thongs decreased 7 percent over the last year, while sales of fuller styles — briefs, boy shorts and high-waist briefs — have grown a collective 17 percent."

Well, thongs DO serve a fashion purpose---erasing visible panty lines.

Not All Vitamin C Serums Are Great: Kleem Organics Proves Theirs Is Superior

Science has shown us that applying Vitamin C serum topically to the skin delivers excellent, rejuvenating power. This incredible anti-oxidant has a strong safety profile. And 'C' improves these skin issues:
photo-aging, hyper-pigmentation, tissue inflammation + tissue healing.

Okay....but since topical Vitamin C has an unstable property, NOT all Vitamin C serums + creams are alike---therefore, you might be tossing big dollars down the drain.

Kleem Organics promises their Vitamin C Serum is one of the best for beautiful skin.

And yes, we are a proud customer, because we think it's a great 'C' in a bottle at a very decent price.

This is Part  2 of the interview we posted here, back on May 10th. We spoke with Kleem Organics founders Dr. Joseph Meli and Dr. Matteo Sorato, researchers in Epigenetics .

1. Keeping liquid Vitamin C serum stable is NO easy process, but Drs. Meli + Sorato explain their success:

"It has got to do with the esterification of Vitamin C producing the STAY-C® 50
(one of the most stable, bio-available forms of vitamin C) which is written at the back of our bottle. STAY-C® 50 (sodium ascorbyl phosphate) maximizes the benefits of traditional Vitamin C because of its ability to stay effective over time without oxidation.

2. Hyaluronic acid/ Vitamin C combo is a good marriage, but getting the Hyaluronic to penetrate effectively, is another challenge. But Meli + Sorato have cleared that hurdle in this way.

....."We decided to invest more in this serum, using minute sizes of Hyaluronic Acid, which penetrate the dermis in noteworthy amounts for best moisturizing and skin-plumping results.
Plus we use particular ingredients that stimulate indirectly the natural synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid."

3. Vitamin C serum is wonderful for BOTH women + men, and it's NEVER too late to begin repairing our skin.

....."Apply vitamin C serum under a sunscreen in the daytime, because the sunscreen blocks UV light and the Vitamin C is a protective antioxidant which eliminates the free radicals which are responsible for 80% of premature aging.

...."Our range of clients goes between 25 and 85 and yes, this serum is absolutely good also for
men, as their skin needs protection and nourishment."

Thank you gentlemen. We have ALL learned a lot of skin-worthy information.

If you can write an honest review about this serum, then the BIG DISCOUNT is yours!

Model Cindy Crawford has always had elegant style, and she proves it by showing us her favorite traveling accessory:

A silky, summer scarf.

Sure, it's simple. But simply smart.

My, My, My! MyChelle Dermaceuticals For Gorgeous Skin

When we hear about a "natural" beauty company, we often assume that the products don't have a decent shelf life or aren't as effective as prescription-grade skin care items.

But MyChelle Dermaceuticals has seduced us with all honesty, and now we have fallen in LOVE.

The Colorado-based beauty company is hitting all the right notes:

1. Scientifically-advanced formulas
2. Using only clean, natural bio-actives--anti-aging peptides + plant stem cells
3. Eco-Friendly company using: wind-powered energy, 100% PCW paperboard boxes + more
4. MyChelle products also: Vegan, Cruelty-free, and Free of Phthalates, Parabens, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances and Colors, Petroleum, GMOs, and Gluten

Amen to all of that.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals were generous to send us along their sunscreen and facial cleanser.

Two exceptional products. Seriously.

Sunshield-Coconut SPF 28
($17, on sale).

LOVE this sunscreen. Great SPF of 28. Smells YUMMY and feels luxurious on the skin.'s POWERFUL yet GENTLE....NO sensitivity problems for us. We even applied it to our eyelid area + under eye area, and it felt wonderful in a light, creamy base.

MyChelle's Sun Shield is perfect for ALL skin types, offering chemical-free protection with Titanium Dioxide + Zinc Oxide. The EWG (Environmental Working Group) rates MyChelle sunscreens among the BEST out of some 700 sunscreens with SPF values!

Let's face it....You NEED sunscreen. Don't be fooled. This one is full of healthy protective properties.

Refining Sugar Cleanser ($25).

Head-over-heels for this superb facial cleanser. In fact, it nicely tightens, smooths + reduces pore size. And it smells so heavenly, we wish we could drink it.

MyChelle's Refining Sugar Cleanser is effective for removing dirt, oil + makeup. The granular, sugary base exfoliates beautifully into a milky lather.

Hands down---one of the BEST cleansers in our book. We don't want the big tube to run out.

It's chock-full of anti-aging benefits from:

Peptide Matrixyl synthe'6 and
Crocus Chyrsanthus Bulb Plant Stem Cell for fine lines + wrinkles.

Really helps FIRM up the skin, keep it clear + bring radiance to the complexion.

Desire Healthier Skin + Hair? Then Try Rose Water Mist

We've all heard about the healthy benefits of rosewater, but some might not believe this super fine mist really does anything good.

This highly fragrant water flower DOES offer hydration to skin and damaged hair, according to the experts.

Rose water is a by-product from rose oil which is made by steam-distilling the crushed petals of roses, a process first developed in Persia.

Rosewater allows the complexion to feel clean +  balanced and shrinks your pores when you put it on.

For the hair, rose water offers the same, hydrating benefits with a boost in volume, and with supposedly, hair-coloring preservation.
We found an excellent rose water mist by Jurlique ($35, at Sephora).

Okay....NOT the cheapest rose water around, but this one is of wonderful, healthy properties:

-Rose Oil: Softens balances and restores skin.
-Marshmallow Extract: Offers intensive hydrating and softening properties that rebalance dryness on the skin.
-Aloe: A succulent perennial of the lily family with skin enhancing value in the juice of its leaves. The leaf gel is rich in beneficial polysaccharides and amino acids and has been used to soothe and calm the skin for more than 2500 years.

Copy Karlie Kloss' Cannes Cat Eye With Liquid Black Liner: Meow!!

Gotta LOVE model Karlie Kloss.... all  6 foot, one inch of her!

The leggy, former VS star has been wowing crowds at the famous, annual Cannes Film Festival with fellow models like VS's Doutzen Kroes.

Check out their glam selfie, taken from the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez (from Karlie's Instagram page).

We ADORE, or  j'adore the SEXY cat eye makeup in liquid black liner.....MEOW!!

Here's another angle of the swept-up winged liner on Karlie:

Now to COPY this classic, lined eye, you NEED to use liquid black liner. We use a creamy black pencil for our daily cat eye makeup routine, but even we agree with the pros that liquid liner is more precise and achieves a BETTER cat eye.

Some models + actresses prefer this CHEAP drugstore find----

Wet 'n Wild H20 Proof Liquid Eyeliner in Ultra Black 881 . Just $2.99 a bottle at Walgreens!

It's AWESOME stuff! We need to buy more + try this liquid liner, again.

Copy Iggy's 2015 Billboards Pink-Dip-Dyed Hair: So Fancy!

"I'm so fancy....You already know...."

Look at Iggy Azalea at last night's 2015 Billboard Music Awards. She's workin' the pink, dip-dyed ends.

We kind of dig it on Iggy. Big star Gwen Stefani has done this cool hair look before. Check her out with black, dip-dyed ends:

Why did Iggy go for the pretty in pink adornment?

She spoke to E!'s Giuliana Rancic about her new colorful hair:

"I'm having an image overhaul," Iggy" remarked. "I'm recording my second album and I just felt that I needed a change of hair and change of style, so I'm feeling very revamped."

If you're dye-ing to try this FUN pink, dip-dyed ends look, you can without the permanent results.

Kevin MurphyColor.Bug

It's $20.78 for a pink pot, and this is what the description says:

"Kevin.Murphy Color.Bug, created for those that want to try the full trend but dont want to be stuck with the color for days. The powder gives you anything from a light wash of color to a bright dose depending on the look you are going for. It works by applying a hair product first, for example a light product like hairspray or a thicker product like a texturizer if you want the color to be brighter and have more of a hold."

We found a YouTube How-To on applying this pink color.bug dye. Check it out here by iclelivzi.

For 5 Bucks, Tresemme Shampoo For Color Treated Hair Turns Up The Shine

When you color or highlight your hair, the results are great, but inside each strand, there is damage going on because of the chemical alterations.

Coloring hair can be harsh and shine can disappear, strands become dry + brittle and so forth.

Shampoos for color-treated hair are designed to keep color alive and STAY that way.

But do these special shampoos really work?

We tried TRESemme Color Revitalize Protection Shampoo ($4.99 at Walgreens).

And we actually liked it. We were a bit taken aback when we poured out some shampoo into our hand. It was milky white like conditioner. We thought we had bought conditioner, but NO....this was the shampoo with advanced color vibrancy technology.

We LOVE the price----$5 for 28 fl. oz..

And we like the SHINE this product leaves behind. Plus, we retained our color for now. We will keep using this shampoo to see if it LOCKS in color longer than regular shampoos.

By the way, Tresemme is promising  pretty major results using this shampoo:
The Advanced Color Lock Technology in the TRESemme Color Revitalize system of shampoo and conditioner can protect your hair color for up to 40 washes vs. non-conditioning shampoo.

40 washes?

If that's true, we're impressed!

If anyone has another great shampoo for color-treated hair, then please leave a comment below.

Jennifer Lopez On American Idol Red Carpet Last Night Finally Looking Human

We LOVE these REAL, not-so-perfect photos of gorgeous celebrities.

Remember supermodel Cindy Crawford's un-retouched fuller belly + stretch mark photo circulating?

Well, now here's a photo of 45-year-old Jennifer Lopez walking the outdoor red carpet last night for American Idol's finale.

Okay....we admit, it is soooooo unfair to blow up a photo of anyone's face, because it is easier to notice tiny flaws +blemishes. And when someone is OVER age 40, it is downright wrong to zero in on every imperfection.

Yes...J Lo looks her age here. And yes....It's refreshing to see that this lovely, sexy star is finally looking HUMAN.

So many celebs rely on professionally-applied makeup, fake hair, plastic surgery, cosmetic enhancement, etc and photoshopping to appear PERFECT. But even that ideal is impossible for most of us.

Say what you will, but Jennifer Lopez has exquisite bone structure. And under the proper lighting, it dazzles. Here she is on stage indoors, away from natural sunlight and looking gorg at last night's A.I. finale!

Jennifer is a longtime spokesperson for L'Oreal Paris makeup. She wears their True Match foundation in w6 Sun Beige.

Street Style: Denim Shirt Even Hotter Than Ever With Celebs

We ALL have denim jeans and then some, but how about the classic, denim shirt?

You should have at least one, because this look is making major street style this spring.

And celebs are wearing the denim shirt just about everywhere. Many like Kylie Jenner are doing double denim. Take a peek:

Instead of wearing the more baring crop top, tying up your denim shirt looks even better, as Kylie shows us here.

Jennifer Hudson is all tied up in her denim shirt on location yesterday in New York City, shooting a fashion lay-out, so we're told.

Lovin' this on Jennifer, too.

And then there is Kate. Kate Hudson also snapped recently doing the denim shirt thing, in a cool fade.

You can COPY their street style, too, with a denim shirt from Forever21 ($27.90).

Get in on the trend!

A denim shirt is a classic staple to have in your closet.

Whether you're Jennifer Lawrence or Kate Moss, it must be super nice to be named the face of any BIG makeup brand.

No Celeb Wears Ripped Jeans Quite As Stylishly As Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo.

She is a quiet fashion icon, if you will. The slim, pretty actress NEVER shows off a look; she just kills it.

Today, we are looking at ripped jeans---the hugely popular fashion trend of the moment. And if you think that Miss Olivia is far too classy + snobby to slip into a pair of ripped up, downtown jeans, you would be wrong.

So very wrong.

Olivia wears ripped jeans with elegance + femininity. Check out these photos:


Olivia's jeans are not the cheapest. Some she owns are upwards of $230, like AG jeans.

But hey, as long as the fit is sexy, you CAN copy Olivia's look for a lot LESS.

Check out these from American Eagle.

Just $50!
