I am a huge fan of nail polish layering to make your own look, as evidenced by this post. And this week I made up what I call Spubble Gum Pink, using Essie Tennis Corset and Essie Forget Me Nots! The Spubble Gum Pink name comes from how perfectly bubblicious pink it is, mixed with the perfect dash sparkle. To create the color I did my usual base coat, followed by one even coat of Forget Me Nots — let that sit a couple minutes and then follow up with a coat of Tennis Corset to add the shimmery sheen. Lastly, don’t forget your top coat to seal it all in!

It’s simple to add a polished twist to a simple hairdo with a black ribbon or skinny headband. For the ‘Rock of Ages’ UK Premiere, Julianne Hough’s hair looks simply sophisticated and the credit went to her choice of accessory. With her light blonde locks teased up and pulled back in a messy chignon, it was the bold black headband that truly set off her look.
Bonnie-Wright-Jordin-Sparks-Side-Braids.jpgThe long side braid is making a comeback! This easygoing style is perfect when temperatures heat up and you don’t want to put your hair in another boring ponytail. And, as it’s to be expected, celebs are starting to flock to the style in droves! The latest girls sporting a long side braid are Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley of Harry Potter fame) and Jordin Sparks.

We’re loving both girls’ takes on the trend. Bonnie’s is a bit more polished, and has a girly feel since it’s tied off with a black bow. Jordin’s is a bit messier and mussed up, with tendrils coming out on one side, which is perfect after a day at the beach.

Creating this style is simple—just create a side part, bring all your hair to one side and braid! You don’t even need to French braid, which makes this super easy. Finish with an elastic and voila! Super chic hair in seconds.
I’ve been growing my hair out for a while now, but then I see a pic of a celeb, like Cameron Diaz, with a hot cropped ‘do, and I just drool. For the What to Expect When You’re Expecting premiere, the incomparable Ms. Diaz stepped out with her hair in a soft and sleek bob with sideswept bangs. This is definitely one hot style for when the temperatures rise. I’m not sure I’m ready to cut my hair yet, but one of these days I’ll stop longing for shorter locks and go for it.
Zooey-Deschanel-Kat-Graham-Tomato-Red-Lips.jpgWe love a bright lip as much as the next girl. And, recently, celebs are embracing not just a bright lip, but a bright color specifically—tomato red. Both Zooey Deschanel and Kat Graham have been spotted with bright tomato red lips that are perfectly painted and perfectly bold.

MAC-Lady-Bug-Lipstick.jpgWant to get the look yourself? It’s easy, thanks to M.A.C Lipstick in Lady Bug! This lipstick ($14.50 at is the perfect shade of yellow tomato red that will make your lips look exactly like Zoe’s and Kat’s.
