The Fact That Home-Made Sunscreen Has Become A Problem Shows We Might Be Too DIY Crazy

The Fact That Home-Made Sunscreen Has Become A Problem Shows We Might Be Too DIY Crazy

DIY Acne Treatments: Good. DIY Sunscreen: Very, very bad. It’s no secret that we’re big fans of DIY hacks. We like to take things from our kitchen to combat facial redness, and we love to turn old t-shirts into something new. Though, not all DIY hacks are as good as our home-made eye makeup remover recipes. Somewhere along the line, we went a bit too crazy with home-made goodies, and the proof is DIY sunscreen. The Daily Mail reported that dermatologists are warning people not to make home-made sunscreens because they can actually increase your risk of skin cancer.

Props To JCPenney For Featuring A Range Of Real People Mannequins In Their Store Windows

Props To JCPenney For Featuring A Range Of Real People Mannequins In Their Store Windows

Customers certainly aren’t all the same shape and size, so doesn’t it make sense that the mannequins shouldn’t be uniform clones of each other as well? Recently, we’ve seen stores becoming more inclusive to different body shapes. A designer bridal boutique carries speciality sizes and J. Crew is expanding into smaller sizes (for better, or for worse). JCPenney is now promoting a more inclusive, positive body image. Instead of the typical one-sized plastic models, the retailer is displaying five mannequins with different body shapes in the window of their Manhattan Mall store as part of their “When it fits you feel it” campaign.

Blue Ivy’s Little Topknot Is The Most Squee-Worthy Hairstyle Ever

Blue Ivyâs Little Topknot Is The Most Squee-Worthy Hairstyle Ever

I became a celebrity baby fashion expert by accident. I don’t even really know how it happened. When I was picking a major in college, I never said to myself, “Someday I would like to be an expert on celebrity baby fashion.” Somehow that role just evolved, and I cannot say I am disappointed, because it means I am constantly surrounded with adorable pictures of celebrity babies like Blue Ivy.

*Faints* You better sit down for this one, because this revelation is going to shock you. Kim Kardashian has revealed that she wants to be a MILF. Okay, so I may have slightly over-exaggerated how shocking this one is. This is more obvious than when Kelly Osbourne admitted that she was her own inspiration for her MAC collection when there was a lipstick that was Pantone-matched to her lilac hair. More »

Aww, Jessica Simpsonâs Wedding Hair Was Dyed To Match Her 2-Year-Oldâs

Jessica Simpson’s hair is one rare constant in an ever-changing world. While other celebrities are dying their hair every color of the rainbow and chopping it all off at the slightest provocation, it’s difficult to picture J-Simp with anything but long, wavy, super blonde hair. It’s not natural, of course. Few adults have hair that blonde naturally, but many children do. In fact, Jessica Simpson’s current hair is dyed to match that of her 2-year-old daughter, Maxwell.

How To Do A Fun Red, White & Blue Manicure Fit For The Fourth Of July

This Friday is the Fourth of July, which means two things: I will be tweeting while tipsy starting around 1 PM, and I will be wearing a ton of red, white and blue. Americana colors have always been my favorite to wear, now including and especially the blue lipstick I showed you all yesterday, but I have never done that much with my nails for holidays in the past. But today, I want to do something super fun: a Fourth of July manicure. It’s an easy way to show off the flag’s colors while not going too over the top. Plus, it’ll match my blue eyelashes and red liner!
