Whether you resolve to get in shape, quit smoking, get back into a beloved hobby or learn something new, creating goals is never a bad way to start the year. We, of course, must add our “2 cents” and encourage creating beauty-ful goals for 2010. Here are 4 ideas that you can incorporate into your life beginning this week.


salmahayek.jpgSalma Hayek recently debuted a shorter, sleeker style at the Ein Herz fuer Kinder (A Heart for Children) Gala in Berlin, Germany, and we have nothing but good things to say about it. This look flatters her just as much as her longer, more glamorous style did and looks great on many regular people as well; a deep side part helps downplay the width of a round face, and sleek, tapered ends help soften a strong jawline.


Tell us: Do you like Salma’s new style?

Thankfully, drugstore brands have been stepping up their game and we are more than willing to give these products their fair chance. Neutrogena Ageless Restoratives 5 Minute Facial is a product we had to try as soon as we discovered it. This at-home peel is formulated with exclusive enzymes and micro-exfoliants to gently stimulate surface skin, improving cell renewal. Over the course of a few weeks, this 1-step wonder delivered the improvement to our skin’s texture and clarity, at a fraction of the cost of a visit to a professional’s chair. $25,



Just as hot temperatures can be harsh on skin, the same is true of the intense chill of winter. When cold, dry air leaves our skin feeling thirsty, a product that contains essential fatty acids and moisturizing oils is the perfect choice to give it the hydration that it needs. Our new favorite, Elemental Herbology Body Souffle Winter Body Hydrator ($37,, is an intense moisurizer that soothes and protects our skin from the elements and is suitable for those with sensitive skin and eczema.
