Bethenny's new book, "Skinnygirl Solutions," has some great tips to help you organize your life. If you think you need help to control your impulse buying, these tips are for you.
Bethenny's advice on controlling impulse buying asks 5 simple questions:
- Do I need this?
- Do I already have something similar to this?
- How much am I willing to spend?
- How many times will I wear this?
- Do I have 3 things in my closet right now that will match this?
If you can't answer all of those questions, then you shouldn't buy whatever you're currently thinking about buying. Now, we're not saying that you shouldn't indulge, but these tips will help you curb buying when you don't really need something.

Justin Bieber has been in the news a lot lately. Some of it is awesome (rad music! upcoming blockbuster! so many selfies!), and some of it is, well, not. But on his brand-new track, "Change Me," JB gets candid about, in his words, making all his wrongs right. That's why he's compared his #MusicMondays series to a personal diary: Because the lyrics have a certain sincerity that his previous hits don't. (For instance, he's totally singing about his real-life broken heart in "Bad Day," proving that even super famous stars get the sads!)
Less sad-though no less repeat-worthy-is today's release. With a minimal piano melody, it's unplugged and lo-fi-sorta along the lines of the previously-released "PYD," except the words won't make you blush. And it's worth mentioning that the guy is, as far as we can tell, totally single, soRead More »from Justin Bieber Gets Confessional in His New Track "Change Me"

What do coffee beans, coconuts, and copper have in common? They all make great clothing! With scientific breakthroughs in textile research, manufacturers are now able to create garments using naturally grown or recycled materials that you'd never think would end up in your t-shirts or jackets. Watch out, cotton and wool: Here are five surprising items you can now find in clothing.
After coconuts are used by the food service industry, the coconut shell waste is reduced to carbon and used to make Cocona fabric. This fabric offers benefits such as the ability to evaporate moisture quickly (to keep you cool), odor management, breathability, and UV protection. You can find Cocona fabric in outdoor performance apparel brands like Adidas.
The same cork that's being used for wine bottle stoppers will soon be available as insulation for clothing. Schoeller Textil has created corkshell, a fabric made from byproducts from the production of wine corks. Cork comes fromRead More »from 5 Things You’ll Be Surprised to Find in Clothing

BeyonceNot realizing that most rules do not apply to Beyoncé, controversial archaeologist Zahi Hawass has taken a bold stand against the world's entertainment empress, banning her from Egypt's ancient pyramids.
Hawass's issue with the Grammy winner arose after she allegedly arrived late for an appointment. "She said she would come at 3 p.m. but she came late," Hawass told The Independent. "I said 'You have to say I'm sorry I'm late.' But she didn't open her mouth." Hawass, who last we checked, is an an expert authority on Egyptian archaeology and not manners or punctuality, continued, "Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends.
