When it’s freezing out and we haven’t made it to the gym, sometimes we don’t feel the need to wash our hair EVERY day. Going outside with a wet head isn’t the best idea, but sometimes unavoidable if you wash your hair every day. On the same token, we’re not ragamuffins. So, this dry shampoo that Cheap Chicas is featured their site just may solve all of our dilemmas.
KTLA has posted pictures of girls in tattoos. We’re a little creeped out since some of the photo credits simply read flickr, meaning KTLA just lifted the pictures off the website, but they’re cool pictures just the same.
Celeb buzz, has posted a best dressed list from last week, including what was worn at the CNN Heroes ceremony. We love Carrie Underwood’s look. Do you?
Daily Candy is on the lookout for you to save this holiday season with a list of 24 Secret Santa (and Hanukkah Harry) gifts for under 30 bucks, as well as a coupon code to save 30% at Modern Vintage. Nice. Perhaps it’s a sign of the times, but even Bloomingdale’s has compiled an affordable list – gifts for under $50 – we’re not complaining one bit.
Oprah isn’t having a Favorite Things show this year, which is a real bummer, but Oprah.com has a list of holiday sweaters that aren’t corny. Since Oprah isn’t making a list of her favorite things, perhaps we should pick up the torch. Hmm.
Happy Hump Day! This morning Marie Claire’s got links to the 25 beauty products that will change your life. While we haven’t tried them all, we can’t argue with the benefits of the Chanel Nude Blush or Mac’s Bronzer just to bring a glow to your face during the drab winter months, the Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer which helps us look like we had a nice weekend getaway to Cancun even if we sadly haven’t taken out our passports, as well as Olay’s Body Wash with exfoliating ribbons. With such a moisturizing body wash, you can even skip a post-shower moisturizer. Nice. Marie Claire also posted tips on how to care for your skin depending on your climate.

It’s called Slackline Yoga, and it’s done on a tightrope. Philadelphia Magazine spotted Jennifer Nehila practicing Slackline and did a writeup and shot video. Just as Jennifer mentions, YogaSlackers.com gives more information on the practice as a whole.
Lastly, we’re not sure how the #4 resturant on this ESPN list earned it spot, but we’re cracking up.
I came across Uniqlo while I was studying in London. The Japanese retailer wasn’t on this side of the pond at that point, and I thought that I had come across buried treasure. There’s a store in NYC’s SoHo neighborhood now, but it’s still not as common as it is in the UK, France, Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong or Singapore. However, thanks to the magic of the Internet you can order any of their products online, including their awesome HEATTECH Line. HEATTECH does magical things – generates heat, and controls odor (that’s always a concern when we’re trying to stay toasty — but not too toasty) while remaining soft and static free. You can also check out Uniqlo’s winter collection HEATTECH and otherwise.
Also inspired by across the pond designs – this cute skirt that Rachel Zoe also loves from Topshop. Rachel discusses it in her blog in the Parallel Universe section.
