Flirty Fishtail Braid
This is the perfect style to rock if you're hanging out by the shore, since the salty air will give your strands great texture for braiding, says Gorman. If you're not near the beach, you can fake that texture by misting a sea-salt spray through damp strands (a good one: David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray, $9.95) and letting hair air-dry. Then do a fishtail braid: Divide your hair in half, and hold the left side in your left hand and right side in your right hand. Pull a half-inch section of hair from the outside of the right side and add it to the inside of the left side. Repeat with a piece from the outside of the left side, adding it to the inside of the right side. Continue adding half-inch pieces down to your ends, and secure with an elastic. Position the braid over your shoulder, then tug out a few piecesRead More »from Sexy Summer Hair Made Easier

Considering all the solid evidence about how smoking seriously messes up your health, it's hard to believe that some people still light up. It also makes you look 12 years older. Yikes!
But they do - except these days, they smoke with one caveat. Instead of chain-smoking or indulging a pack-a-day habit, increasing numbers of young smokers say they only puff on a part-time basis, say fewer than six cigarettes daily.
So why do they do it at all? Some of these part-timers are attracted to the taboo aspect of the habit, so they only puff while out socially to appear more badass. Others say that cigarettes help them relieve stress, so limit their smoking to when work gets hectic or when they're dealing with relationship issues. Got a question too embarrassing to ask your doc? We have the answer.
Thing is, when it comes to the damage cigarettes can do, less isn't any better. Experts say that smoking any amount of cigarettes - even a few on Saturday nights - exposes your system toRead More »from Smoking Gets Even More Scary

1. IRS withholdings. Many people have money withheld from their paychecks in the hopes of getting a fat refund. But doing that is like giving the government an interest-free loan. Instead, change your W4 filing-just ask your employer for a new form-so that you get as much money as possible up front. Then discipline yourself to put that portion in the bank, where you'll earn interest.
2. Dry cleaning. Dropping off your nice clothes at the cleaners can cost $5 or more per item…and that adds up. But thanks to suchRead More »from 7 Things That Eat Up Your Paycheck
