Frugal Beauty: 11 Household Items You Can Use As Beauty Products
(photo: stuartpilbrow) A $25 face mask may be cheap enough to make it onto a magazine’s “bargain” beauty buys list, but there are less expensive and more effective head-to-toe pampering products to be had in your fridge and pantry. Even professional aestheticians and stylists turn to household staples like lemons, baking soda or yogurt when it’s time to clear skin of acne, soften rough patches or keep teeth sparkling. “What better way to achieve a natural glow, then from natural products?”
Out of the ordinary Beauty Tips that work
Use toothpaste on yellow nails. This usually happens when you let nail polish stay on your nails for very long and when you’ve used cheap nail polish. Whiten them all up by rubbing toothpaste to remove the stains.
Honey, My New DIY Face Wash
Posted by Alexandra on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 · 80 Comments I haven’t exactly hidden my love of honey—I pretty much mention its antibacterial wound-healing powers every chance I get. But, truth is, I only got turned onto its magic in earnest a few months ago… See, back in May the lovely Simone invited me to join her at a natural beauty house party—yes, this is how we roll in Los Angeles—where guest speaker Dae Williams sat at the center of our cross-legged lady circle, expounded on the many benefits of natural ingredients, made us laugh, and made us blush.
Editor’s Picks: The Ten Best Films of 2010
The Ten Best Films of 2010: 10. Thunder Soul It was a great year for documentaries in the mainstream. From the loud victories (the Banksy one) to the nerdy adventures (the Troll 2 one) to the epically failed ones (the Joaquin Phoenix one), there was a lot of chatter about films of the real. But none were able to so effortlessly inspire and crush the way Thunder Soul did when I took in a viewing at SXSW.
Delightfully Tacky: Braided Headband DIY from A Beautiful Mess
Hi there! This is Elsie and Emma from A Beautiful Mess. We had some leftover floral tights that we decided to restyle into a cute headband. This would be a great project if you have a few pairs of tights that have gotten runs in them but you don't want to just throw them out. Here's what we did:

See Creatures & The Perfect Mermaid Curls
Although “perfect” is a relative term, this method for curling hair is pretty much perfect by my standards, mostly because it isn’t fussy. While I’m a sucker for both ringlets and Californian waves, I like my own curls somewhere in between: relaxed but bouncy. Mermaid-like. Supplies: 1″ curling iron, brush, and hair sprayTime: 45 minutes (for thick hair) All of the magic happens with Revlon’s “Helen of Troy” ceramic 1″ curling iron.

This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Thousands of Kids
This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12.
