This collagy thing was inspired by InStyle’s article on figure flattering pieces for your wardrobe. They didn’t really have any examples of where to find these pieces, so I went on the hunt! By the way, I’m sorry for the jagged appearance of this one. It was hard to edit some of these images well in Polyvore.
“I like chocolate. I don’t eat it, but I like the smell of it. People can drink with their eyes; I can eat with my nose. I would love to have a perfume based on chocolate.”—Karl Lagerfeld [on not eating or craving sugar]
Researchers at USC and Duke injected participants with Botox, Restylane, and a special gel that intensifies muscle signals. They then exposed the participants to images of faces and asked them to judge the emotion that was being displayed. Those who were injected with Botox were significantly worse at recognizing emotions. The researchers hypothesize that this is occurring because Botox limits the movements of muscle in the face. In order to appropriately understand emotion, people often mimic the expression they’re seeing. See how these two things could be connected?
It made me chuckle that this article started off by talking about Finals Week and late night visits to the library. If your schedule is anything like mine, you’ve got your last week(s) of school ahead of you, which will be jam-packed with exams. Which, in college world, may mean you don’t have time to shower as often as you would like. These tips might help you not look so grungy as you go through your stressful schedule.
“Sometimes I pig out and I still feel great, and think, ‘That was so worth it!’ That’s how I feel a lot of the time. I think, ‘See this little dimple of cellulite here? It was so worth it for that cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream!’ If I was stuck on a diet my whole life, I would be really miserable. I love to eat. If you can’t enjoy your life then what’s the point? You can’t torture yourself. I love Rice Krispies Treats, ice cream and frozen yogurt.”—Kim Kardashian

These videos compiled by StyleList are absolutely adorable! I know some of you would never let your boyfriend mess with your (usually expensive) makeup collection, but I think this is one of the cutest things I’ve seen in a long time! I would love to try this out, because I think it’d be funny to see how my boyfriend does. I’d definitely post a video here for you guys to see!
And, I’d also be super interested to see any of your videos like this! Like one of the girls in the videos said, you can grab a younger cousin, younger sibling, boyfriend, platonic guy friend, or anyone who doesn’t know how to apply makeup and ask them to give you a makeover!
First things first: Please check out this article. Also, if you don’t want to read my rant below, that is cool. However, if you feel up for it, go ahead. I’d really like to open this topic up for discussion with our followers!
As an undergraduate psychology student who wants to focus her future clinical career on eating disorders, I found this research extremely disturbing. Well, let me rephrase this. I found the findings…unsurprising. However, the researchers’ interpretations of the findings and ultimate conclusions? Those are terribly disconcerting. In summary, the researchers conclude that having ultra thin models (many of whom have dangerously low BMIs and suffer from eating disorders) is a good thing. They say that this is back up by research showing that people eat more when viewing images of “fat” people and eat less when viewing images of “thin” people. Okay, I’m sort of with them so far. However, then they start attacking the idea that the fashion industry should incorporate models of heavier weights, saying that this would only encourage obese people to view their weight as socially acceptable. God forbid someone feel comfortable with their body…
I tried to figure out what field these researchers come from. If anyone can locate any information regarding their scientific orientation, please send Glamification a message!
P.s. Sorry for the rant you guys. I just feel very strongly about this topic.

Overall: Well, Banana Republic certainly paid attention to trends this last season. Their colors and cuts are spot on with the trends presented by a vast majority of designers this past runway season. Everything is pretty much what you would expect from Banana Republic, but there were a few fun additions thrown in. Who would’ve known that Banana Republic had an affinity for leopard print? It’s featured in a few shoes, hats, gloves, and a jacket. Personally, I’m loving the last look in the collection!
