Natural Makeup Is The New Makeup: Lady Gaga’s Winning Comeback Approach

(alternative title: Gaga vs. del Rey comeback confrontation countdown) So what is it about these two young ladies who besides sharing the same age (they’re both born in 1986 just two months away) seem to have started a war to determine who’s the fairest of them all? The most talented and most appealing entertainer?

I’m trying to approach this from a fashion-style amateur perspective and not from a musical point of view as my knowledge about their performing talents is just borderline relevant, not being a fan or extensive listener of either of them.

As is the habit nowadays, people are judged after the coat on their backs, their look more than they are from what their innate talents can produce to entertain the crowds. Because nobody has time and patience to see how ‘natural’ works. We have to tweak it, bend it and make it likable on the spot. Flash productivity. How do you do that? By changing the shell. By painting the walls of the same home in a brighter, different color so that people who went by your street and who didn’t stop to look at a white house now they’d just be paralyzed to see your house suddenly turned neon blue! (… we’ll get to Gaga in a sec, jump with me!)

5 New Amazing Finds For Your Home And More!

Here’s the WaterBean: a small gadget that could revolutionize the water consumption habits around the world! As you may know, some water sources are not entirely clean and safe to ingest and so bottled water tends to occupy one of the first positions in a household’s grocery budget.

The WaterBean is a flexible portable filter that you can insert into any plastic bottle, fill it with water, shake, swirl and ta-daam! You’re good to drink! How’s that possible? Well, the activated carbon, derived from coconut husks, the magnesium calcite will be released into the water, purifying it. Isn’t that a neat idea? I would love to try it out and use it, should it prove its efficacy!

Kate And William’s Royal Baby Boy Craze

If you think that the Royal Wedding was really something worth mentioning, you haven’t seen the effects of the Royal Baby! Oh, wait, no, it’s #RoyalBaby ! Because, as it was to be expected, the Royal Baby has his own hashtag! Which has generated more than 2Million tweets sending Twitter into inevitable meltdown (at one point, the social media service counted more than 25k tweets/minute!).

But wait, that’s not all! The British troops expressed their joy at the birth announcement in their own manner while one of Britain’s Got Talent’s finalists, Jack Carroll, started cracking jokes at the #RoyalBaby’s expense and got everyone mad. On Twitter, biensur!

There’s (so much) more (including a video after the jump)!

Kate Moss Really Loves Her Louboutin Strappy Sandals!

It’s been a while since we last talked about Kate Moss, right? Well there she goes, in all her legendary glory, wearing just another little black dress with zipped front (is it just me, or La Moss has a thing for zippers? I just have this feeling that she’s a zipper girl. Anywhoo, I digress: ) And – there goes the surprise: Kate Moss wears colorful sandals!

We hardly see Kate Moss wearing anything colorful, let alone this colorful! I mean, I’ve seen nails that were more colorful than Kate Moss’s entire wardrobe! So imagine how wearing a pair of $900 sandals by Christian Louboutin, the Spring Summer 2013 collection can become a social matter! So far, two official events have surprised her pairing the same sandals in two different looks, what do you think made her go for a pop of neon?

How To Restyle Your Man In 5 Easy Steps

I was doing some reading today and I suddenly realized that this is something we didn’t really talk about. Did we? Not since those sweet old times when our dear friend, Ellington, suggested I should start writing about some Men of Style also (wink) – which I did. Every now and then.

But you see, thing is that I’m so head over heels with my Adored Husband that the ‘men’ talk for me is pretty hard to bring on because movies aside, I don’t notice any men. Other than my better half. However! What I can do, is share from my experience. And that is what this new story about Men of Style is! About Your Men of Style! Because, my dahlings, just as we have the fashion gene in our DNA, so do our Men! They just keep it well hidden, waiting for the right moment to pop! So here’s how you could revamp/fashion up /restyle your Men’s look in 5 easy steps! (take it easy, though! You don’t need to move mountains to find his inner fashionist!)

{1.}Find his comfort zone and think about what he needs to wear for his daily routines! You won’t have your Man wear floral shirts if he’s to hide away in a cubicle all day long. It will only frustrate his inner fashion lover more than anything! Not to mention the weird looks from his co-workers! (or worse: the sudden interest he would stirr in the women in his office!) So what you need, is concentrate on a few basic pieces according to his work nature and then rotate them.

Men Drool Over Marisa Miller’s Golden Dress In R.I.P.D.

When you’re going to watch a movie with Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds, for which you’ve only seen the movie poster from a distant corner-eyes glance, you’re not expecting a Victoria’s Secret model to star in… Right?

Right. I wasn’t. However, when the said model is introduced in a key scene of the movie, how would you expect her to be like? With or sans clothes? How about a golden bandage mini-dress? That would do, wouldn’t it? With the appropriate curly blowout, the type you’d only see on Victoria’s Secret Show catwalk and a giant pair of hoop earrings! There’s a high probability that, if you’re a man reading the above-description, you would most likely consider watching the R.I.P.D. movie for all the Marisa Miller action scenes (hint: it involves a lot of drooling but also a lot of rough playing!)
