Fall Wardrobe Staple: Skinny Black Denim
As much as I love fall, I can't help but live in a constant state of dread, knowing that as soon as the leaves are finished turning and the crisp fall weather has come to an end, all that will be left behind are unbearably cold temperatures. Saying goodbye to the mild weather will inevitably also mean saying goodbye to any outdoor physical activities and hello to every unhealthy comfort food I can think of- I'm talking just about any pumpkin flavored pastry ever created.
This has become quite a familiar cycle for most of us, one that we will all inevitably regret come next bikini season. Not to worry! We've come up with a few easy wardrobe tips to help you look 2 sizes thinner, even through those lazy colder months.

This Halloween, we're pretty certain that a lot of you may dress up like a few of our favorite Shore folks. If you've been searching for lingerie that you can wear as clothing, extra hair gel, T-shirts worthy of "T-Shirt Time," and the perfect shade of fake tanner, well we've got the hair style how-to for you. To complete your Snooki look (because of all of the Jersey Shore cast members, Snooki would clearly be by far the most fun to impersonate for a night) follow June Senkiew of Cutler Salon's steps to the perfect poof.
Get Defined Cheekbones In 4 Quick Steps
Start out with clean hair. If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, blow dry it straight and spritz a heat active texturizer such as Cutler's Volumizing spray. For this look, you'll need a little bit of product in it, be it a texturizer or volumizer to give the look a little hold.

Who wore the hair do(n't) best?
A few weeks ago, I was headed home on the 1 train after a long day of work, just minding my own business and shuffling through songs on my iPod when I spotted an adult aged woman sporting a hair bow. But, not like your average hair bow made from ribbon or some other perfectly normal material you can buy at Jo-Ann Fabrics (although to be honest I'm not a fan of those either). This hot number was a hair, hair bow, as in- I just chopped off my teenage nemesis' hair at a sleepover while she was passed out, wrapped it around a bow-shaped contraption and velcroed it onto my own head- kind of hair bow.
Brow Resurrection: Above The Eye Revamp
I am fully aware that Lady Gaga has been running wild with this trend for over a year, but to see it placed on the top of a "normal" person's head like a cherry on an ice-cream sundae, without "Alejandro" suddenly queueing and Gaga jumping out from the next train over was to put it lightly- strange. But apparently Vogue Read More »from Hair Bows: Hot Or Not?

Hair Bows: Hot or Not?
Changing your look from day to night can be a little tricky. Whether you have to run from the office to go on a date or dash to make drinks with the girls, it's always a hassle to figure out how to get night appropriate. Unless they start lining the streets with those transformation telephone booths from Superman, I can't help you with your outfit, but I can help you with your makeup.

LA Woman: Get the Left Coast Look
There are things that you give up forever when you make the leap to being a live-in couple with your boyfriend, but then again, there are also benefits that you can't get without it - that is, unless you want to pay for it. And what would that benefit be you ask? Access. It may not be to your girfriend's closet full of cute dresses and sharp-shouldered blazers, but you will find plenty to wear for the cooler months - think cozy, oversized sweaters, button-downs that you can transform from his work uniform to your new shirtdress and plenty of bulkier menswear accessories that look just right for Fall '10.
If I wasn't as single as could be (and didn't have such a penchant for florals), I'd probably stick to shopping in my imaginary bf's closet all winter, but alas I'll have to head to the men's department for that. But may I suggest that all you non-single ladies take this opportunity to Read More »from 11 Gifts For Your Man That Give Back - To You!

The Most Important Trait of Successful Daters
For anyone who has seen and loved Broken English, Le Divorce or Amélie, the dream of French romance is a hard fantasy to escape. (Unless your introduction to Paris-set films started off with Last Tango in Paris, in which case the idea of French love has likely traumatized you.)
I'm one of those who became a fool for the idea of Parisian romance, which is why I'm now living there and in a successful relationship with a native (after many failed attempts). For those wondering what it's really like to date a Frenchman, here are 15 things to know-including the truths, myths, pluses and quirks.
1. French men tend to love American girls. (Hint: If you speak just the slightest bit of French, you gain points. Don't worry about your atrocious accent because they think it's cute.)
Why fall's seasonal favorite isn't only good for your belly.
How Do I Get My Manicure To Last?
As soon as the temperature starts to get brisk enough for wooly knits and the leaves on the trees turn into a feast of red, yellow and orange hues, I know it's time to once again break out my favorite fall tipple: spiked hot apple cider. And while I have long known of the positive effect cider has on my belly, I had yet to experience its benefits for my feet. Yup, that's right, I said feet.
Enter Sweet Lily, one of my very favorite local nail havens, where the music is always mellow, the flowers arranged in vintage Ball jars are fresh and the seating is plush. Sweet Lily always offers a seasonally-themed nail treatment, and to celebrate the arrival of autumn this year they have added a Cranberry Apple Pedicure ($68 for 60 minutes; sweetlilyspa.com) to the menu. Feet are soaked in warm cider filled with floating slices of red apples, then thoroughly polished with a cranberry seed exfoliant andRead More »from Home Pedicure: Apple Cider For Your Feet?

What makes the Italians so well versed in beauty? There's only one way to find out...
Beauty Banter: How Do I Get Flawless Eye Makeup?
The vast majority of my family lives in Italy, so clearly I'm a bit biased when it comes to evaluating pretty much anything that emerges from the so-called boot. But even if my name wasn't full of vowels, I would have still fallen for Davines. The Italian-born natural haircare brand has a lot of products that are kind of impossible to resist - their Well Being De Stressed Yogurt and Muesli shampoo is one of the most delicious concoctions I have ever discovered.
Now, their recently launched Authentic collection (see davines.com for salon locations) has four new products vying for my affection. The ultimate multi-taskers, each one is designed to be used on both the hair and the body. And considering that the formulas are entirely free of parabens, sulfates, silicones and mineral oils, and packed instead with a plethora of naturally-derived ingredients, Read More »from Italy's Little Luxuries: Best Beauty Products From The Boot
