The 'It' Necklace From Nicole's House Of Harlow Jewelry

Okay, we really love, love, love this necklace from the Nicole Richie 'House of Harlow 1960' Jewelry company.

This is the Hollywood 'It' necklace, and it's a stunner!

Made from 14KT Gold-Plated Palladium, the necklace features striking black resin geometric charms held together by little gold shingles.

And you can pick up this gorgeous House of Harlow jewelry ($125) at stores like Kitson's Boutique, and online-- Oops, currently on back-order there. Or you can order it at The Trend Boutique, too, ($135) and it will ship mid-July, if you can wait.

We are seeing this Nicole Richie necklace just about everywhere, gracing the necks of Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Monet Mazur, and many more Hollywood lovelies.

When you're wearing a statement piece of jewelry like this one, you don't need much else to make your outfit sparkle.

Nicole Richie also sells this pretty necklace in red geometric charms with silver shingles. Equally as alluring.

Just take a look at House Of Harlow 1960 Jewelry. We think Nicole Richie has excellent taste. Her pieces are unique, striking, and affordable.

How To Get Sweat-Free Feet In Chic Summer Soles

Our feet go through so much action on a daily basis. And when it's hot and muggy outside, well, even celebrity feet can sweat and yes, even smell.

But there is a chic solution. All you do is peel, stick, and stay dry. They are uber-trendy. And they're called Summer Soles. And simply put, these are removable liners. And Summer Soles come in a wide variety of colors and fabrics and even scents, all to keep your feet happy and sweat-free.

And at the same time, Summer Soles keep the insides of all your favorite shoes, looking new.

The science is not complicated here. Summer Soles are a super concept, because these removable liners provide a soft, dry barrier between feet and the shoe bed, so your feet stay dry. And they really do work!

And if you worried about fitting a pair inside your favorite sandals, shoes, or boots, relax. It's easier than you might think. Here's what the folks at say:

One size fits most. Usually minor trimming is necessary to fit to your shoe. We carry some colors in wide width, too. Summer Soles fit women's shoe sizes 5-11, and men's sizes 7-12.

For all shoe styles---Sandals, pumps, mules, flats - but just the dressy kind, with leather or shiny synthetic soles. NOT for spongy flip flops or fabric- bottomed styles like Birkenstocks. The light sticky back just can't grip fabric. Though we hear they're fabulous for going barefoot in Canvas Keds.

And the price is nice, too, for picking up some Summer Soles. We like the plush microfiber suede insoles (see photo of wedge sandals). Only $8 a pair. And the suede ones last and last.

If you don't absolutely adore Summer Soles, there's a money-back guarantee.

These chic liners are sold in many stores across the nation. And you can buy them online, too.

Olive Oil Skin Care Products Smoothing Over Complexions

If you think of olive oil, you might be saying what a super food product it is for keeping the inside of your body like a fit running machine. But did you ever wonder how this healthy oil could also bring you many benefits for 'outside' the face and body, too?

There have been lots of beauty articles written about olive oil cleansers, olive oil creams, and a number of olive oil skin care products.

Many of you have shied away from these beauty treatments because you think your skin will get super oily and break out. But not the case. Instead, olive oil gives skin softness, elasticity, and protection from irritants in our environment.

Today, we are looking at 2 skin care companies that offer very popular olive oil-based products:
DHC Skin Care and Eger Olive Oil Skin Care.

DHC has several olive oil products for improving your skin. The most popular item is their Deep Cleansing Oil ($ 25, 6.7 fl oz, It's a water-soluble product that makes makeup disappear immediately.

"Dirt, excess oil, makeup—even waterproof mascara—and other pore-cloggers dissolve easily, leaving your face a grime-free zone that is soft to the touch. Its unique water-soluble formula rinses completely, so you’ll never see a greasy residue. Olive oil and vitamin E help ensure you won’t see dryness either."

DHC also features olive oil leaf creams, olive oil leaf extracts, and other olive oil-based skin care treatments.

Eger Skin Care, based in Israel, offers a variety of olive oil beauty products in creams, oils, and ointments.

Dr. Shaul Eger explains the science behind his treatments:

The main active ingredient is olive oil, which offers the following benefits:
Improves cells' metabolism .
Reduces cell aging rate.
Impoves cells' membrane flexibility.
Essential oils are incorporated to
Create pleasing scents of flowers, leaves, stems and barks from which they come.
Contribute their therapeutic properties.
No fragrances used in our products, due to their allergenic properties.
The oils and ointments are purely of plant origin, of natural antioxidants and no animals based additives.

Miley Cyrus And Max Azria Design WalMart Clothing Line

If you are a Miley Cyrus fan, or maybe your kids are, you will love this fashion tip:

Multi-talented Miley has teamed up with famous designer Max Azria to create a girl's clothing line for Walmart. Not bad for a 17-year-old.

The new line will be called 'Miley Cyrus & Max Azria. And it debuts this August at a Walmart near you.

The best thing we love about Miley's clothing line is the simple fact, that every piece will cost $20 or less!!! Now we're talking.

Check out the photos of Miley Cyrus modeling clothing from her new line. We like what we see.

The collection of tops, graphic tees, pants, shoes and accessories will be available come August in stores and at

This all squares off nicely with the timing of Miley's concert tour, which launches in Oregon in mid-September.

Max Azria is excited about their clothing line together, and he's quite impressed with Miley's gift as a performer, as well as her down-to-earth personality:

"Miley Cyrus is talented and approachable, so working with her sparked a line that is authentic and vibrant," he says.

Halle Berry Crowned Best Celebrity Skin...No Surprise

She's 42-years-old. And a new mom. And to win top honors for having the Best Celebrity Skin, well, that says something, too.

Halle Berry always looks flawless. And apparently, up close and personal, her skin appears the same way.

According to David Bank, M.D., founder and director of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, the stunning actress has probably taken 4 steps to maintain that enviable skin:

1. Be careful in the sun.

2. A great at-home maintenance routine.

3. Possibly Botox ($350 per area). Temporarily erases lines around eyes and forehead.

4. Possible Thermage Treatments ($1,000- $5, 000). Firms skin and tones complexion.

The good doctor also forgot to throw in good DNA, something Halle Berry has certainly been gifted with. And a healthy lifestyle. Halle is diabetic. She is active, follows a sound diet, and is never photographed partying all night long in Hollywood.

So we aren't surprised that Halle Berry was crowned Best Celebrity Skin.

By the way, Halle has just chopped off her longer hair, into her 2002 trademark pixie cut. Thought you'd like to see her latest.

007 Daniel Craig Popsicle...For Real...Sexy On A Stick

We thought we'd have a little fun today. And don't blame us, this is Del Monte's idea.

Yes, that is none other than the sexy 007 Daniel Craig on a stick. And before you make a wild dash to the supermarket, you can only find the James Bond popsicle cutie over in the U.K. At least, for now.

See, it's National Ice Cream week in Great Britain. And for this week only, you can take a lickin' of Daniel Craig. Actually, there are so-oooooo many jokes we could make, but we will take the high road here.

What we adore about the Daniel Craig Popsicle is its low caloric number.....only 100 Calories each. And the icy treats come in blueberry, cranberry, and pomegranate. An excellent snack for dieters everywhere.

So how did this all come about, you ask?

Del Monte Superfruit Smoothies asked 1,000 British women which male celebrity they’d want to see on the end of a stick. Daniel Craig was the big winner! And this popsicle is the artistic rendering of him coming out of the ocean in James Bond 007: Casino Royale.

How could we forget that toned, strong physique emerging from the water! We understand why Daniel Craig was chosen. He is sexy on a stick.

"Daniel Craig topped our poll of Britain's coolest celebrities and thanks to our Del Monte lolly replica he is officially immortalized as super smooth and licensed to chill," explains spokesman Matt O'Connor."

'Licensed to chill.' We love that! And we'll take ours in blueberry, thank you.

New Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Line For Ageless Skin

Let's talk about Ellen Sirot. And if you don't know her by her name, you definitely know her by her hands.

And what a beautiful, soft, youthful pair she owns. So lovely, that Ellen Sirot's hands have stood-in for the famous hands of Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Ray, Hillary Swank, and Cheryl Tiegs, just to name a few.

Ellen Sirot has been a hand model for 20 years now, with an impressive portfolio. Advertising shots range from Dawn dishwashing liquid to Elizabeth Arden skin care to jewelry with Ross-Simons, etc.

Ellen's hands are everywhere. And they appear ageless. So how does she keep them looking that way?

With plenty of skin care knowledge. Ellen has studied the subject for a number of years now, and is happy to share her secrets with

"I feel a beautiful hand is a soft, ageless, healthy hand. Anyone can attain that - we just need to give our hands the same care we give the rest of ourselves," Ellen Sirot says.

And she is proud to launch her new product line, Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection.

"The line is a breakthrough in hand care as it is created specifically for the anti-aging needs of the incredibly delicate skin of our hands," Ellen says. "I love that the products are petroleum free (no greasy residue) and fragrance and paraben-free. The Day Cream ($50, 3.4 fl oz) is my fave, as I use it continuously through the day - each time I wash my hands I rehydrate the skin with a drop of Day Cream. The formula is created to lock in moisture and protect the hands with a light weight barrier - much like the skin's own lipid barrier."

We all know that the water and the sun, can do a number on our hands, if not the entire body. So how do we fight back?

The key is effective moisturizing. And the Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection line has the right formula to nourish the hands, including Omega-3s, essential and skin-friendly fats.

"The trick with water, is to moisturize each time you wash your hands to seal in moisture, rather then pulling it out. Also try to cut back on the number of times your hands are submerged in water - by using gloves when washing dishes, etc. For the sun, you must remember to apply suncreen to your hands and to wear protective clothing such as my Hand Perfection GLOVETTES ($35) for extra added protection," Ellen explains.

Whether you are 19 or 90, Ellen says it is never to late to rejuvenate a pair of hands. This hand care line really works.

"Our products are clincially proven to soften and smooth skin in less than two weeks on all sorts of hands!"

And Ellen Sirot uses every product she developed in her new hand care line, because she believes the ingredients are hitting the right target. Just look at her nightly routine. You can learn from this 'supermodel' of hand models.

"I cleanse my hands with HAND PERFECTION Moisturizing Cleanser, pat dry very gently and use a drop of Night Solution. The formula is so packed that just a tiny bit works it's magic. The ingredients are incredible - antioxidants for protecting the skin, exfoliants for helping with cell turnover, glucosamine to help plump the delicate skin of the hands which thins with age, Licorice Root to help brighten the skin and rich humectants and emollients to lock in moisture. After the Night Solution I use the Nail and Cuticle Treatment to take care of those areas. Our unique pen applicator allows you to target the nails and cuticle and hydrate them with our amazing oil full of botanicals and vitamins A and E. The doe-footed pusher lets you gently push back your cuticles while they are soft and supple from the oil. Hydrated nails are less likely to break and peel."
