As a hazel-eyed girl, I’ve always been a huge fan of purple eyeshadow. So I was thrilled to see that Glamour has pronounced hazy, purple eyeshadow a trend on the return. Need a shade recommendation? I like M.A.C. beautiful Iris.
Father’s Day is Sunday. If you still don’t have a gift for your Dad, you should consult The Glamazon Diaries gift guide. These gifts would be perfect for an Urband Dad, but if you’ve got a country boy like mine, you should probably give the Cabela’s catalog a look.
Meghan D. from CHS favorite Wit & Whimsy is also a guest contributor to the Linea Pelle blog. Her latest post examines Spring beauty trends including how to brighten up your eyes. This knowledge is essential for Hill staffers who are planning to hit up the Summer party circuit.
After my recent Spring cold, I’ve been washing my hands like a mad, OCD-afflicted woman. This has left them a bit dry. So for you Metro riders who’d like sanitized mitts without the split cuticles, try Clean’s anti-bacterial hand cream.
Lastly today, a short rant. I HATE American Apparel. There, I said it. And I won’t apologize. Dov Charney is a reprehensible human being who perpetuates the worst stereotypes about our culture (that beauty is only rail thin) to sell gold lame panties to over-sexualized teenagers because it’s “cool.” I really hope he loses his many pending discrimintation cases and winds up destitute. That’s right ladies, Dov Charney has now surpassed Julia Allison on Belle’s S**t List.
If you’d like to read more about what a despicable jackass Charney is, read here. I dare you to shop at American Apparel, without feeling like a blood traitor, after reading the article.
And now, for this week’s inspirational quote: “Sex appeal is fifty percent what you’ve got and fifty percent what people think you’ve got.” -Sophia Loren
