Kim Kardashian went for a bold statement on New Year’s Eve in a super-fitted dress that gave the illusion of being see-through — and the dress was really just an “accessory” to her bombshell pregnancy announcement. Yet, if you could tear your eyes away from her dress (or seemingly lack thereof) for a second, you just might actually see her hair. It appears that Kimmy K went for a multi-braid effect, pairing some smaller, thin braids into thicker low braids and then topping it off with a long and loose french braid that went from the left side of her head across to the other side. This is a style that truly requires an extra set of hands, and one who knows a thing or two about various braiding techniques.

This body wash seriously smells so good, so fresh, so zesty … it just revs us up and gets us ready for even the toughest day ahead.

The Body Shop has been known for its body butters longer than many bath lines have been in the game. And anyone who’s tried them before knows just how great they are. They absorb quickly, leave amazing fragrances behind and moisturize deeply. Their Love Etc. Body Butter is newer to the line and is made with Community Trade cocoa butter, and organic, virgin, cold-pressed Community Trade coconut oil — the result is a decadent and rich moisturizing cream that leaves skin soft and non-greasy. 

You can get The Body Shop Love Etc. Body Butter for $19 at
