Hot lipsticks for spring!

Keyword: spring, lipstick, coral, orange, trend

This week marks the start of Spring! Hard to believe since we never actually saw Winter…I’m not complaining though! And what better way than to celebrate with a cute cuddle kitten amongst some pretty flowers?

With Spring comes lots of new trends. It’s time to step away from the deep red and brown lipsticks shades and step into lighter colors.  What’s hot this season?  Coral, Hot Pink, and Orange are the three colors to try this year.


Go for the Hot Pink if you have a bold personality.  You have to wear this color with confidence. It’s not for everyone…but if you can pull it off, it looks amazing!


If the pink is not for you you can try  the Coral.  It’s a little more subtle. It’s the perfect in-between for those that don’t think they can pull off with pink or orange.


Orange is my favorite this spring.  It’s really making a name for itself this year…not only in make-up but in fashion all together!

A lesson in solo cup line-age

Keywords: pic of the day, weeatny, solo cup


First off, I know line-age isn’t a word – and hardly makes sense, but sometimes one must think outside the norms of language and create their own words.  With that being said, I want to share this picture with you – spread a little knowledge.  I for one had no idea that the lines on the Solo cup had meaning… I thought they were there strictly for tactile pleasure.  But as you can see they’re guides so you know how much liquor, wine, or beer to serve to your guests.  Who knew!?  Now we all do…  you’re welcome.

And a happy passover too!

While the easter bunny gets ready to come deliver all kind of goodies to you and your family, I wanted to take the time to wish you all the best holiday weekend!  I hope your time spent with your family and friends adds wonderful memories to your history. Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  I always love a good excuse to spend time with close ones, but also…who can resist a good easter egg hunt?! And let’s not forget about the peeps!! Yum, yum!


Now, the Easter bunny must get ready for the big day!


Happy Easter to all!  Have a wonderful weekend.  See you all back here on Monday!!



Now THIS I can cover!


I am not one for award shows.  I guess I just don’t care enough about movies and tv shows to watch what wins and what doesn’t.  But when it comes to the Tony Awards…well…it’s sort of like my Super Bowl! So let’s talk a bit about what I saw last night!


Host Neil Patrick Harris looked amaaaaazing!  He always does though, doesn’t he?  You almost forget from his character on How I Met Your Mother that he is actually a really cool and down to earth guy…and he can sing! And since this is a style site, I will mention that his hair always looks great ;)


Oh, hello Sheryl Crow! What was she doing at the Tony’s?  Well apparently she just finished writing music for her very first Broadway show called “Diner”.  She presented an award and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.  She looked GREAT! Her hair was beautiful.  The color and style were very flattering on her. Her makeup was done to perfection in my eyes.  She wasn’t over done…it was like just enough! She was never one of my favorite musicians, but I can appreciate someone who looks so great and knows how to dress and look for her age!  Prop to you Ms Crow!


She bangs, she bangs!!  Yes, that is Ricky Martin! Normally I wouldn’t say this, but I am kind of digging his facial hair.  My guess is he grew it out for his role as Che in Evita, but I think it kind of works for him.  He impressed me during his performance and I think I found him sexier than ever….but maybe it’s because I just have a thing for guys who do theatre ;)


Amanda Seyfried did not impress me.  Why was SHE at the Tony’s?  Well she will be starring along side Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway in the screen version of Les Miserable in the winter. 1-you need to dress a little nicer for the Tony’s.  This is not the MTV Music Awards…this is a prestigious award show! Put on a gown! 2- If she is sporting the ombre.. then maybe she shouldn’t pull her hair back so sleek like. It just looks like she has really bad roots! 3- I’m all for a bold lip, but you have to give the eyes a little bit more…or maybe she is just too pale for me.  I don’t know, but something just isn’t working for me.  Sorry Amanda!  I do however look forward to her performance in the movie!


Congrats to all the winners last night!!  Now, someone please go get me tickets to see ‘Newsies’! I need to see more dancing boys!! ;)

Host of some crappy show and former MTV flunkie spews homophobia.

Keywords: carson daly, mtv, homophobic, jet blue pilot


Carson Daly, the host of…..well…um…..he hosts something now a days, right?


Anyhow – he came under fire last month for making homophobic remarks on his radio show. (He has a radio show? And people listen?)


It seems Mr. Daly felt the need to comment on the airline pilot who went ballistic on a flight to Vegas. Last month, a JetBlue Airways pilot was charged with interfering with a flight crew after sprinting through the cabin of a Las Vegas-bound flight screaming about terrorists and 9/11. The pilot was restrained by officials on the plane and made an emergency landing to deal with the man, who is now in federal custody.


Since no one can put this more eloquently then the “man” himself – here is what Carson said about the situation. On air. That’s right. Oh – make sure you read it with a stereotypical gay lisp and effeminate accent, because that’s the way Carson presented it…


“On this particular flight, most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas. It was a bunch of dudes, and well trained dudes…If that were me, I mean, my luck? It would be like, ‘this is the flight going to Pride in San Francisco.’ I mean, that would be my colleagues…”

He then added, “Uh, we’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.”


All in a “gay” voice. Whatever that is.


Thank you Carson – for taking us back years in the public eye, for implying that women and gays are not able to handle situations like that (I guess we need well trained dudes) and that gay people only go to gay events. Arrrrgh!!!



Daly tried to apologize, calling himself an ally and advocate. I’d like to call him on that BULL ‘ish. BECAUSE….if Mr. Daly was truly an ally, and was truly a supporter – he wouldn’t even be thinking like that. Apologize for what you said Carson, but you cant apologize for your honest thoughts. Glad you think that about people you supposedly support.


Whatever show you are on right now (TRL? The Voice? The Ryan Seacrest Show?) – I hope someone breaks in, and tries to take you hostage and that you are saved by a strong, femme lesbian. Or Ryan Seacrest. Same difference.


What a jerk!



As a stylist, I wonder that a lot!

Keyword: dye, hair dye, boxed dye

I cannot tell you how often I am fixing people’s mishaps. I understand that initially the thought is that you would save money by purchasing a $4.99 box of hair dye at the store, but you are taking a huge risk when you do that!

All too often I have clients sit in my chair who dye their hair themselves, and as I cut, I notice all the spots that are missing because they either didn’t apply correctly, or were too cheap to buy two bottles when their hair clearly called for it.  Yes, sometimes the boxed dye does work and it comes out great and looks beautiful. But, not everyone is lucky.


There are affordable stylists out there that won’t cost an arm and a leg to have a simple, single process color done.  Hell, if you’re in the Long Island are, come visit me ;)

Awful ‘how to’ video

Keyword: frizzy hair, leather jacket, how to, fail

Epic Fail #1- Tell us what products you are using, and learn how to pronounce the ingredients before sounding them out in fron of the camera

Epic Fail #2- Silicone products are not good for curly hair. They cause the curls to become brittle, and flat.

Epic Fail #3- Your model could not look less interested. She is completely bored and you can tell she does not want to be there!

Epic Fail #4- Who told you a leather jacket was a good idea to wear to make a video? *squeak, squeak, squeak* Definitely NOT cool!
