Glam 101: How to get a Gorgeous Bun
by Carolyn Brundage

Angelina Jolie. Jessica Alba. Taylor Swift.

Three glamorous celebrities with one thing in common, they know how to rock an updo.

For many women, hair is an integral part of what makes us feel beautiful, sexy. But glamour and sex appeal aren't one in the same, so to earn your glam stripes you'll have to know how to weave your magic spell (that's how Webster defines glamour) without a single loose hair to toss over your shoulder.




Featured Story

Glamorous Gifting

For the Clotheshorse:
100 Dresses from the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

For fashion lovers, this book is an addictive visual history of fashion's rite of passage replete with breathtaking photography, portraits of designers and detailed insets. What's most amazing is that so many of these dresses seem truly timeless from the 1898 Evening Dress by the House of Worth to Christian Dior's stunning "Junon" Dress, circa 1949.

Culled from the Costume Institute's collection of tens of thousands of dresses, ranging in creation from the 17th century to 2009, this book feels more like a modern woman's style guide for glamorous dressing than a retrospective of hundreds of years of gowns.

Featured ReviewLove it! Nivea's A Kiss of Flavor

"I enjoyed this product simply because it kills two birds with one stone, moisture and color. Not only does this product make my lips soft, it adds a beautiful subtle red tint to my lips that enhances them naturally making people believe that my lips are always a reddish tint. While some may not expect the red color, it is great for school, lunch or any place casual. I give it 5 stars!"

Product ReviewsLove it! Too Faced LashGasm Mascara
By Johanna Ferreira

"My eyelashes are naturally long and thick so when I'm looking for a mascara, I'm looking for one that's going to bring me dramatic results. That's why I fell in love with Too Faced's LashGasm mascara. This mascara for one not only creates voluptuous and DRAMATICALLY longer lashes, but it also conditions my lashes. I've gotten complements every time I've worn this mascara, some people have even thought I had on false lashes!"
