If You’re Gonna Do Rihanna For Halloween, THIS Better Be A Part Of Your Costume

2016-09-27T15:28:54Z

Rihanna‘s signature bathrobes, chokers and burgundy lipstick aren’t the only reasons why dressing up as her for Halloween is so dang fun–she has another costume accessory that takes it over the top. What is it? Her signature wine-glass-in-hand, of course! In case you missed it, Ri Ri is known for walking out of restaurants and […]Rihanna‘s signature bathrobes, chokers and burgundy lipstick aren’t the only reasons why dressing up as her for Halloween is so dang fun–she has another costume accessory that takes it over the top. What is it? Her signature wine-glass-in-hand, of course! In case you missed it, Ri Ri is known for walking out of restaurants and clubs with a glass of wine IN HAND–thus making the “Rihanna with wine glass” this year’s best zero-f$cks-given costume. Who cares about the open container laws, when you’re Rihanna? Not Rihanna! If you like wine, fancy yourself a badass, and like to accessorize with glassware–this costume is for you. So here’s how to do it: The wine glass:  Obviously, you’ll need a wine glass for the costume. Any old wine glass you already have at home is absolutely fine to use. I also thought this EASY, TIGER ‘Pinkies Up’ Wine Glass ($16) was fun though if you want to punch it up a bit. Up to you! The outfit: You can start with a leather halter top like the one Rihanna wore from Iris & Ink. That one is sold out, but this Raoul Leather and stretch-ponte tan ($125) is an excellent substitute. It’s a little price-y though, but you can definitely wear it long after the holiday is over. Ri Ri topped her leather halter with a camo jacket–so if you’re going that route for the costume, you should do the same. If you already own a camo jacket, that’s gucci. If you need to buy one, I found this Milk It Vintage Oversized Camo Jacket ($57), which you can definitely go more use out of after Halloween. Luckily, Rihanna just put out her FENTY by Puma clothing line, so you can wear any of the pieces from that to get her look. This FENTY Puma x Rihanna Terry Choker ($30) is a good option because it’s on the cheap side–and Rihanna loves a good choker. Rihanna also loves a good pencil skirt. This FENTY Puma x Rihanna Lace-Up Pencil Skirt ($190) from her line is a good option. this is one bad gyal @badgalriri A photo posted by MINDING MY BUSINESS (@hoodbyair) on Aug 28, 2016 at 6:35pm PDT Funny, The Sun has since changed their headline.

6 Things You Need To Buy For Fall, According To The Jenners’ Stylist

She works with the Kardashians, Jenners, Hadids and more pretty people who totally influence how we dress. So when she gives fashion advice, we listen. Monica just dished on her fall fashion must-haves to People, and now we are reeeeally in the mood to go shopping. Check out her recs below before they’re on every single girl you know and all over the ‘gram. src="//players.brightcove.net/416418724/default_default/index.html?videoId=5121823824001" width="300" height="150" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"> 1) Vintage t-shirts “A t-shirt can go a long way,” says Rose, who is obsessed with Hanes re/done tees. “They’re super cool and effortless… Sometimes less is more.” The 1970s Boyfriend Tee ($78) You can also go the non-vintage route which is slightly cheaper! Hanes Men’s Classics 6 Pack Crew Neck Tee ($14.99) 2) Men’s clothing (including velvet!) “That’s kind of the secret that you don’t know is that we use a lot of men’s clothes on my clients.” Ooh, Monica spilling the tea! Her pick is this AMIRI Velvet Bomber Jacket ($2,450) because it’s velvet and “crushed velvet is going to be everything for fall-winter.” It’s true, velvet shoes, dresses and jewelry are all over and it’s still, like, 90 degrees out! AMIRI Velvet Bomber Jacket ($2,450) ASOS Velvet Bomber With Ruching Detail In Khaki ($81) 3) A shoe style you love in multiple colors When you find a shoe you love, buy it in all the colors. “One of my favorite shoes that is like my go-to shoe, and I’m sure you guys will recognize it, is the Stuart Weitzman shoe. It’s the Nudist. It’s just so simple and elegant and I use it on a lot of my clients. And I have it like in every color.” Makes sense! Stuart Weitzman Nudist Single Band Sandal ($398) Stuart Weitzman Nudist Single Band Sandals ($398) 4) Patent leather boots You might have noticed Kendall Jenner wearing these Kenneth Cole Krystal Patent Leather Boots ($495) *everywhere*. “They’re super comfortable, they’re not that high,” Rose says. “This is going to be a really big trend again for fall. These are a definitely must have.” Noted! Krystal Patent Leather Boot KENNETH COLE BLACK LABEL ($495) Faux Patent Leather Booties ($39.90) 5) Clutches “Clutches can either make or break an outfit,” Rose says. If she can’t find a good one for a client, she opts for no clutch instead of the wrong one (*shudders*). Her fave brands are Lee Savage and Judith Leiber. Lee Savage Space Bubbles Gold Plated Box Clutch ($1,895) Judith Leiber CoutureTall Slender Rectangle Evening Clutch Bag Champagne/Multi ($4,495) From St Xavier Exclusive Rose Gold Clutch Bag With Ring Detail ($78) 6) Hats “I personally wear hats when I’m having a bad hair day,” Rose reveals. Same girl, same. “It just makes the outfit look more polished and accessorized and it kind of pulls the look together.” She goes for felts hats in the fall. Rag & Bone Wide Brim Fedora ($195) ASOS Skinny Band Felt Floppy Hat ($33) Don’t forget to check out: the best new Sephora beauty launches for fall and how to make your bra last forever [Photo: Splash News] [...]



How To Clean Up Your Social Media Feeds (So You Only See What You Want!)

2016-09-23T18:25:36Z

There are lots of stories on the Internet about the best accounts to follow, how to get more followers, how to get more likes, how to take better selfies, etc… but what if you actually want to tone down your social media presence? Let’s not forget that sometimes less is more–especially in this digital age. If you follow less accounts, […]There are lots of stories on the Internet about the best accounts to follow, how to get more followers, how to get more likes, how to take better selfies, etc… but what if you actually want to tone down your social media presence? Let’s not forget that sometimes less is more–especially in this digital age. If you follow less accounts, you’ll actually be able to see more of the posts you want to see. You’ll actually see when your little cousin posts pictures from prom (aw!) and less of your sorority sisters getting engaged one by one. If you don’t want your feed to be overrun by posts that you couldn’t care less about (or in some cases, that actually put you in a worse mood), then here’s how to clean up your social feeds: Unfollow accounts that aren’t relevant anymore. After your wedding, unfollow bridal accounts. If you’ve graduated from college, you don’t need to get on-campus updates anymore. After you pass a life stage, update your social media to match. You don’t need to live in the past. READ MORE: Celebrities Who Respond To Their Haters On Social Media Unfollow Instagram accounts that make you feel bad. Looking at people’s “perfect” lives on Instagram is a surefire way to feel bad about yourself–especially if you’re already having a bad day. Unfollow accounts that only make you feel negative feelings (jealousy, sadness, loneliness, FOMO) when you check them. There are plenty of cool, funny and uplifting accounts to follow instead–not to mention the accounts of friends, family and other people that you actually want to get updates on. Unfollow people who post too often on Facebook. You have enough going on in your own life, you don’t need multiple updates per day from the same three people (you know who they are). Over-sharers are like the loud-mouth in the room–they suck up all the air and leave nothing for the rest of it. It clogs your feed and your mind. You can un-follow friends and accounts you don’t want to see on your feed de-friending them. You can also Hide Ads, Hide individual Posts or All Posts from someone. READ MORE: Every Beauty Blogger Uses This Selfie Technique Like, comment and share stories you DO like. It seems obvious–but most people don’t take action on content they *do* want to see more of. But that’s exactly how Facebook and other social sites know what to serve you more of. We tend to click on stories we don’t like–checking on exes, frenemies, people that we don’t talk to IRL, celebrities we love to hate or political candidates that we find truly offensive–just to see what they’ve done recently. This is why you see more on those people in your feeds. Cut off the beast by not clicking, commenting or sharing that content. Again, it’s poison for your soul. READ MORE: 5 Signs You Have Digital Anxiety Cut down the number of social platforms you use. You can’t be active on all of them–focus on the one or two that you *enjoy* the most. If you love to give real-time updates, Tweet and Snapchat. If you love to take beautiful photos, Instagram is your spot. If you like both news and personal updates, Facebook is a good place. And there are tons of other social platforms beyond just the big ones–maybe there’s one just for your niche interest area or background? Google it. Find your happy place online, just like you do in life. You don’t need to wear yourself so thin by being everywhere, all the time.

How To Celebrate A Friend’s Birthday Without Spending Major Money

2016-09-23T16:02:14Z

Big birthday dinners are fun, but they can be expensive, and the costs really start to add up when you have them, like, every weekend. I just had my last big birthday dinner at age 31–when the bill came out to $300 per person I felt *so badly* for my friends and vowed never to do […]Big birthday dinners are fun, but they can be expensive, and the costs really start to add up when you have them, like, every weekend. I just had my last big birthday dinner at age 31–when the bill came out to $300 per person I felt *so badly* for my friends and vowed never to do it again. I mean–you can’t be a birthday princess forever. If you’re still in the phase of life where all your friends are having big birthdays–here’s how to navigate them so they don’t make you go broke: 1. Pick the place. Find a place with happy hour specials or good, cheap food (hole-in-the-walls can be the best!). Look for restaurants that accommodate big groups well–like by serving platters or snack food–and bars that have beer and drink specials. Suggest the locale to the birthday girl and the group–they’ll probably be happy you did the research for them! READ MORE: The Best And Worst Drinks To Order At A Bar, According To A Bartender 2. Do the job of splitting up the bill. If you offer to work with the waitress to figure out who ordered what, and how much to put on each card, you’ll avoid the awkward situation of doing it at the table (and ruining the birthday girl’s vibe). Leave the table, head to the wait station and do it out of everyone’s face. They’ll continue drinking and having fun–all they have to do is sign for their check when it comes! This way, you won’t have to pay for the chips and guac you didn’t eat. This is especially important for people who don’t drink! 3. Skip the dinner. This is the easiest way to save money on other people’s birthdays–just don’t go. Sure, you’ll be missing out on the fun, but you’ll get over that FOMO quick. If your friends are meeting for dinner then going out after, skip the dinner and meet up with them at the bar. Save money on the food (eat at home), bring a cheap gift (or even a re-gift) to make up it up to the birthday girl, then order wisely at the bar. READ MORE: The Best Going-Out Shoes With Short Heels 4. Just go to the pre-game. You’ll save the most money by not going out at all. Bring a $30 bottle of liquor with a big bow on it to the pre-game then walk out with everyone when they’re headed to the bar. Give the birthday girl a big hug, then quietly exit. Not everybody needs to know you’re sneaking out–and the truth is, they’ll probably won’t even notice. 5. Offer to host. Offer to have the party at your apartment–and ask people to bring booze. Spend a few dollars on snacks and mixers, then set up a table for booze. You’ll all save money not going out–and if you decide to order a pizza delivery, you’ll still be in the green.

How To Make A Uhura From Star Trek Halloween Costume With Just A Red Dress And Boots

2016-09-23T14:54:52Z

Everybody loves Zoe Saldana (she’s perfect!) so when she landed the role of a young Lieutenant Uhura in this year’s “Star Trek Beyond,” the character became one of this year’s most popular Halloween costume ideas. I mean–what woman doesn’t want to wear a red mini dress, tall black boots and super-high pony tail for their costume? If you’re […]Everybody loves Zoe Saldana (she’s perfect!) so when she landed the role of a young Lieutenant Uhura in this year’s “Star Trek Beyond,” the character became one of this year’s most popular Halloween costume ideas. I mean–what woman doesn’t want to wear a red mini dress, tall black boots and super-high pony tail for their costume? If you’re one of those ladies that likes to look hot on Halloween (versus scary or funny), this costume is a really good option. Let me walk you through: Uhura’s dress:  Of course the internet has lots of official Uhura costumes, but many of them are low-quality (you know how junky and ill-fitting pre-packaged Halloween costumes can be), so you might actually be better going for a cute red mini dress that is flattering, fits your body well and can even be worn again after Halloween. I like this Red Long Sleeve Backless Bodycon Mini Dress ($13.90) but there are lots of other dress options if you do a Shopstyle search for “red mini dress.” Uhura’s has a black collar, but I don’t think it’s necessary for the costume. She wears long and short sleeve versions of the dress–so just get whichever one you prefer. Uhura’s boots:  If you already own a pair of tall black boots, feel free to wear those (best if they have a tall heel and hit just below the knee). If you don’t already own a pair, I found these Bamboo Chunky Zipper Knee-High Boots ($35) online. At $35, it’s totally find if you mess them up on Halloween and have to throw them out after. This is another reason to put the Uhura costume together versus buying it at a Halloween store–Halloween costume boots are always over-priced and usually pretty junky. Uhura’s hair: Zoe Saldana’s signature Uhura look is a super high pony tail. If you have short hair or really blonde hair, you might want to try a wig or at least extensions (even long haired girls might want to consider pony tail extensions–Uhura’s hair is really long). You should straighten your hair, too–hers is slick straight. Here’s a Youtube tutorial on how to do the hair (she suggests doing the look on greasy hair as it will make it look even more sleek like Zoe’s, and using a tooth brush sprayed with hair spray to smooth it down. Genius!): width="500" height="281" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/r8HOqyk-K9I?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen> Uhura’s accessories:  To make a plain red dress look like a Uhura uniform, simply get a Star Trek patch and apply it to the breast of the dress. You can find these on Amazon or elsewhere on the web. I found this Star Trek TOS Command Division Patch First Season ($7.95) that seems pretty legit. You could also potentially buy a black collar to make it look more official–but I don’t think that necessary. To top off the look, you’ll need some dangly earrings. These Alexis Bittar Small Sliver Earrings ($66.50) are the exact pair Zoe wore in the film! (Or you can just wear something you already own that looks like it!). Uhura’s makeup:  You’ll need a great cat eye, brows on fleek, some lash extensions, some highlighter and a pale plum lip to pull of Uhura’s makeup. The look is underdone but so pretty. Here’s another Youtube tutorial on how to do the makeup: width="500" height="281" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/t0_wI0YFjBQ?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfu[...]



This Is What Happened To My Skin When I Cut Out Dairy

2016-09-26T14:29:36Z

I’ve documented my struggles with acne a lot on this site–and the changes that I’ve made in recent years that have vastly improved it (bye, bye adult-acne-twenties–hello, mostly-clear-skin-thirties). For one, I quit Proactiv which made a huge difference. Here’s my detailed account of that experience, and a reminder of how my skin looked before and after: Initially, I […]I’ve documented my struggles with acne a lot on this site–and the changes that I’ve made in recent years that have vastly improved it (bye, bye adult-acne-twenties–hello, mostly-clear-skin-thirties). For one, I quit Proactiv which made a huge difference. Here’s my detailed account of that experience, and a reminder of how my skin looked before and after: Initially, I thought that other factors like diet didn’t play a huge role in my skin. My dermatologist had told me that something like drinking milk vs. not would make a difference of about 10% or so on my overall complexion, and I believed him. Proactiv was solely to blame for my constant break-outs. Right?? It was an easy scapegoat, and for about 10 months or so I continued to drink skim milk after quitting Proactiv and I was pleased with how my skin looked. After giving birth and breastfeeding for a couple months (my pregnancy was the reason I quit Proactiv, FYI), I was ready to lose the pregnancy weight and I found a program called the Bikini Cleanse to do so. In the Cleanse, you can’t drink dairy milk, even skim, you can only have unsweetened almond milk. I had never drunk almond milk before, but for a week straight it was the only thing I had and I got hooked on the flavor and the concept that it was a lower calorie alternative to milk (almond milk has 60 calories per cup, compared to 102 calories in 1% or 86 calories in skim). After that point I switched over to almond milk completely, and no longer had any dairy milk in my diet (I only drink milk in my coffee–I don’t eat cereal or drink glasses of it–I mean do any adults do that??). The benefits to my skin were immediate–I had even less redness in my cheeks, fewer breakouts (not even the occasional hormone-related zit), and I could even go to work without wearing a stitch of makeup. This was unheard of before–I would never step out of the house before without my go-to foundation slathered all. So, why is skim milk so bad for skin? I sat down with dermatologist Dr. Kally Papantoniou with Advanced Dermatology PC to get the scientific answer. “There have been many studies that have shown a link between acne and dairy consumption,” she said, citing a study from 2005 that looked at 47,355 women and found that there was an association between skim milk and acne. “Dairy plays a role in acne because of several factors: androgen hormones, growth factors (which are naturally present in cow milk), and whey protein which is inflammatory and can stimulate Insulin-like growth factor that has been shown to increase acne.” So, there you have it! So, now that I don’t drink milk regularly, I immediately notice the issues it causes to my skin when I DO have it. Say, if I’m at a coffee shop that doesn’t serve almond milk or visiting a relative that doesn’t keep almond milk in the house. Take this week for example. On Monday, I ran out of almond milk in the house, and didn’t get a chance to go to the store all week. I was forced to drink the 2% that I keep in the house for my daughter–after four days I immediately had zits popping up around my mouth and on my cheeks, like this doozy today: After 4 days back on dairy. Eek! I’m not kidding about this dairy milk thing! I’m not saying it will be a cure for everyone (and let me take this opportunity to say that I am not a trained medical profess[...]
