I’ve seen news about this trend but I have shrugged it off. I am finally ready to address it with just a few words…and that’s it.
Here’s the trend.
Apparently, hairy armpits are all the rage among women in China. What the fuzz? Lately, China’s version of Twitter, Weibo, has been exploding with photos of women sporting unshaven pits and very brazen “long hair, don’t care,” attitudes.
Some news outlets have labeled the trend a “competition,”however there doesn’t appear to be any sort of prize or trophy attached to this bushy battle. Unless, of course, you consider the freedom to celebrate yourcuerpo, body hair and all, a prize. In that case, all of these women are winners.
Like I said, I will keep this brief. I can’t do it. I just can’t. For the women who do, I admire your strength. I know I have been conditioned to think that I should have no hair under there and I understand that our bodies are made a certain way and that this hair is natural…but ya, I can’t!
I haven’t done these posts in a while. I’ve moved to a more classic look. In other words, I am getting old and the gold-glitzy stuff isn’t going to cut it anymore. I am in a professional setting now so I gotta “look the part”.
I found three little gems on Lookbook. Here are some bloggers who fit my new style.
The last one isn’t really work appropriate but…I like it!
Let me start off by saying that I never watch these awards show in their entirety. I’ve said this countless times in countless posts. Awards are never my thing. It gets long, I get anxious or tired or both. Most of all, I just secretly hate the fact that I am not part of the experience. Well…that’s until Twitter came along. But even then, it gets long and there’s only so much snarky tweets that can get you through four hours.
The host this year was Ellen Degeneres who successfully made the event more than it actually was. There was a selfie, there was pizza and there was Ellen. She’s not a bad host…I’m just a terrible viewer.
Let’s cut to the chase and talk about the dresses that stole the night.
Can I just say that I find this woman ravishing! Well I shall! She is a beautiful women. That dress though…I just didn’t like it. It’s not so much the cut of the dress, it’s the colour. I just find the colour incredibly flashy on her. It doesn’t complement her beautiful rich skin tone at all.
The cut is great, it’s a beautiful and flowy dress but the colour is just awful.
Everything about this dress and Jada is just beautiful. What a beautifully wrapped dress.
Naomi aimed for a classy look. I love her red lipstick.
Amazing! She went for the old hollywood look with her hair. I love everything about this dress.
Simple but chic! Tell me, how did you manage to trip on this dress though?
It’s one of those dresses that doesn’t impose itself on you. It doesn’t have much to it besides the sparkles. It’s a beautiful dress!
This is my second favourite dress. I love a dress that wraps itself on a woman. This one is that dress! Sandra looked amazing.
She stole the whole show. That colour is beautiful. I’m happy she went with something rich and vibrant. Good pick Amy.
She looked like a siren didn’t she? This was a very good look for Charlize Theron. She looked like a mermaid and above all, the dress was completely strapless (although you see a bit of plastic at the top). It was a hit.
And then there was Camila. You see…sometimes you don’t need to show some skin to stand out.
Those were my picks for the night! What about you? Who do you think was the best-dressed?
Getting that perfect, fresh from the salon blowout while at home has always been a struggle. It’s never as shiny or as bouncy, no matter how hard we try. While on the quest to figure out how our talented hairstylists manage to turn our lackluster hair into shampoo ad-worthy locks, we found out some reasons why our at home blowout just isn’t giving us the results we want. Below, eight tips for getting your at home blowout perfect.
Not washing out all of your conditioner: Leaving conditioner in your hair will leave residue that will ultimately weigh down your hair and ruin your blowout.
Using a terrycloth towel to remove excess water: Try using an old t-shirt to remove excess water from your hair. The smoothness and softness of the t-shirt compared the the towel will help minimize frizz, making your hair smoother and silkier.
