Winter Beauty Survival Guide: Hair Care
Whether it's making your normally luscious locks do an excellent impression of straw or giving you a serious case of hat head, winter is not a good friend to your hair (or skin for that matter!

Beauty Talk with The Bachelor Canada: How to Make a Good First Impression
When I got asked to attend the Bachelor Canada brunch hosted by Rimmel London

Trending in Fashion: The Statement HeadbandIf the previously discussed princess-esque headchains
were a little out of your comfort zone but you still want to play with a headpiece trend this fall, you need to go out and get yourself a statement headband. Dolce and Gabana really hit it out of the park in their fall 2012 show when they put gloriously baubled headbands on model's heads (yes, gloriously baubled is a thing). The...
