Someones kopying Kim!

Keywords: kim kardashian, kate middleton, alexander mcqueen

I mentioned last week that Kim Kardashian totally stole a Pucci look from Gwyneth Paltrow, now Kim is the one being kopied.

On Sunday, Duchess Kate Middleton attended the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in London wearing the same Alexander McQueen dress that Kim pranced around in last summer in NYC! Who do you think wore this scarlet number best, the future queen of London or the current queen of drama?

Gregg Popovich of the Spurs named NBA coach of the year

Keywords: gregg popovich, san antonio spurs, tim duncan


Heres a little number I’ll throw out for you, well it is actually two numbers. 38-7. That is the record the Spurs had in their last 45 games entering the postseason. After getting off to a very non San Antonio 12-9 start, Pops got his team going. Tim Duncan had another great season in his hall of fame career. Tony Parker may have had the best campaign of his life as he sits as one of the top MVP candidates. These were the keys to the Spurs as they earned the top seed once again under Popovich. So with that I say well done and well deserved for Gregg Popovich, who is also battling this postseason for his 5th championship.

Free yogurt… with a side of body fluid??


Keywords: food news, weird news, free samples, anthony garcias, semen yogurt



Yuck, yuck yuck yuck…. Some people need to be sent to a deserted island for all of eternity.  Anthony Garcias, of New Mexico, is one of those people.  Last January he was given the task of passing out yogurt samples at the grocery store he worked at.  One woman spit the yogurt out, repeatedly spit onto the floor, and even wiped her mouth with her clothing to attempt to get the taste off her tongue….. What would cause such a vile reaction?  The fact that Garcias tainted the yogurt samples with semen.  *pause for nauseated and repulsed gag reflex*  The 32 year old admitted to placing the semen on the spoon and offering it to a female customer.  He pleaded guilty in court this past October and he’s facing up to three years in prison…. {insert all obvious jokes about him likely getting a “taste” of his own medicine….}

Suave Keratin Infusion Treatment is discontinued for good reason!

Keyword: suave keratin, keratin treatment, hair straighteners

Keratin Treatments are the newest chemical treatment that helps keep your hair smooth from frizz. Prices on treatments done in a salon rage anywhere from $100-$300. More recently, companies have been putting out over the counter kertain products for much less. Though results don’t claim to be as amazing as a professional job, for some people its better for the sheer fact that it saves them money. It’s the same as buying boxed dye and doing it yourself!


However,  is it worth saving money when doing it yourself means loss of hair?! Suave Professional Keratin Infusion has quite a problem on their hands these days. Apparently several of their consumers have claimed the their hair has fallen out prior to use. Others say that their hair has been badly damaged. There were a few good reviews, but they were hard to come by through all the negative ones.  Here are just a few of the reviews that I found while searching online.


“I applied the first out of 3 tubes into my hair and within minutes my hair was falling off in chunks. I immediately washed out my hair with more chunks coming out into the bath tub. I put the second tube on because it is supposed to seal the cuticle then I flew into my hairdressers salon on to have her chop ALL OF MY HAIR OFF (Approx 6 inches) and she told me that she had never seen hair do this before”


“I used the Suave Keratin Infusion kit on my hair and it is ruined…f-r-i-e-d. I did this about 2 weeks ago and everyday my hair is a little shorter in certain area’s. All the way around my face my hair is breaking off. I didn’t have bangs but now I do and they are getting shorter by the day. I’ve tried heavy conditioners to help but nothing seems to help. It took me about 5 years to grow my hair out this long and now it is gone. Oh how I wish I could go back in time and rethink my decision.”


“I used the product and I worked great. People have been complemeting my hair. I have had professional keratin treatments in the past and is comperable.”


“I HAD beautiful Italian hair, I saw the ad on Tv , their ad is false and misleading, you are lead to believe it’s a keratin smoothing conditioning treatment….I am horrified by the way my hair looks. I’ve had to cut inches off and the remaining looks kinky, dry and damaged”


“I used this shit product last week, JUST for 5 minutes and my hair was falling during the process like I put some acid on it… I washed it very quickly but the damaged was done.”


“I just used this product this morning and it turned out great! Hair is real smooth and soft. I usually use jon freida products to straighten my hair and it will usually leave it feeling heavy. Don’t get me wrong frieda products are great I just love how suave left my hair. Soft and smooth and straight!”

Apparently this product, which you can get for just $12.99 isn’t a keratin treatment at all.  It is more like a perm solution.  It makes sense since a lot of the reviews I read talk about a rotten egg smell. There is the tiniest bit of keratin in one of the products which legally allows them to advertise it as a keratin treatment.  It is FDA approved!  This is why I believe these types of treatments should be left only to professionals.  If someone wants their hair de frizzed that badly, they will come up with the money to pay a stylist to do it. Is it worth putting yourself in danger just to safe a few bucks?


Suave has discontinued the product and is offering services to those with issues, which is the stand up thing to do, but if a product like this never existed, we wouldn’t be in this position. (But then again, I wouldn’t have an article to share with you then ;)    Kidding!) I did read about several people starting action suits, whether they go anywhere…I guess we will wait and see!

Whenever I hear of a local business helping to give back, it just makes me all giddy inside.  It’s such a wonderful thing when people go out of their way to help others who are in need.  So when I saw this on Facebook I knew I had to give my praise!


Jewel Hair Design is a company working mostly out of the Virginia, DC, Maryland area (I know, this is a NY site, but it says they will travel nationwide!!!) They offer on site hair design for  whatever your needs are. They have also recently started making their own hair accessories available on ETSY.

The reason they caught my attention today was because they posted about an amazing thing they are doing. They have commited to giving $1.00 to the every time they get a new fan on Facebook, and they share this info with friends by tagging them in a post. is a site dedicated to making the world a better place. It covers all kinds of donations, including wigs for women battling cancer. You have until Christmas Day to be a part of this, and it’s so simple to do!  Just click here for their site and the rest is easy as pie!

Westyle is always excited to share news like this, so if you know of any other local businesses/salons/hairdressers…etc who go that extra step to do something special like this, please let us know so we can feature them on our site!

MAC’s lip glass

Seriously, probably the best lip gloss out there, hands down! And you can even get them in different colors too. It’s thick and shiny, but doesn’t have that stickiness to you.  You know what I’m talking about…when you have your mouth closed for a while and when you go to open up you actually feel like you have to pry your lips open!
