Bar-Rafaeli-Star-Style.jpgTruth be told, we think Bar Refaeli is one of the most gorgeous creatures on the planet. So it’s no surprise that we’re totally loving her fresh-faced glow at the 2011 Whitney Museum of American Art Studio Afterparty. Her glowing skin was complemented by a touch of black eyeliner and a glossy pink pout. Here’s how to get the look.

I am a grown adult, I promise, but I never quite outgrew my fascination with Bath and Body Works’ fragrance mists — Specifically their limited edition Vanilla Bean Noel scent. But seeing as how that scent is only available for several months I’m left to come up with alternatives the rest of the year. I have an allergy to floral scents and I think there’s something yummy about smelling like a bakery … so I tend to go for vanilla scents in general. So imagine my excitement when B&BW came out with a Cozy Autumn Vanilla. It smells like a spicy, caramel version of their classic Warm Vanilla Sugar and I adore it already.

Cozy Autumn Vanilla Fragrance Mist, Shower Gel, Body Lotion and more are all available on


It might not be something you like to talk about, but unwanted facial hair takes an emotional toll on a woman’s self-esteem. Whether it’s on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, or elsewhere, facial hair can be embarrassing or make a woman feel unattractive. Luckily, there are products like the new Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo which gently and effectively removes unwanted facial hair in two simple steps — with no tell-tale irritation or redness.


But before you begin to remove your unwanted facial hair, it’s important to determine your facial hair type. According to Olay, hair can be classified into 3 types:

    1. Fine hair can be compared to the thin and soft fuzz on a peach
    2. Medium hair is more visible, but still soft to the touch
    3. Coarse hair tends to be more visible and stiff, similar to a kiwi

Every woman’s facial skin and hair is unique, so if you identify your hair type as fine to medium, you’re ready to find a hair removal system that works for you. For women with coarse hair, Olay will be introducing a hair removal system for tougher-to-remove hair in the near future, so stay tuned.

nikki-reed10062011.jpgWhen Nikki Reed’s not rocking her Twilight character Rosalie’s blonde wig, her hair is often styled in a softly, touchable ‘do. This loosely swept updo, for a recent red carpet event, was no exception. Regardless of her haircolor, there’s certainly no mistaking her strong chiseled chin or thick and full eyebrows.
