Face Bloat 411—How to Get Rid of It, Fast!

ESC: Bloating
Being bloated blows.
It always happens at the most inopportune times: You know, when you have an important meeting the next day or a red carpet-worthy event where there will be tons of photos taken. Feeling puffy is annoying (hello, understatement), but it's also completely normal (yes, it happens to celebs too). And, no, we're not talking about a touch of belly bloat. We're talking about the kind of swelling that's impossible to hide: face bloat...the kind that makes your coworker ask, "Rough night?" upon arrival at the office the next morning.

Foreign Language Class: A Lesson In Diversity
Somewhere during our formative years, we were all required to take a foreign language class. Whether French, Spanish, German, or Italian, it’s undeniable that learning another’s language and culture makes you a more well-rounded person.
For starters, there is the literal strengthening of the mind that comes from the simple act of learning something new. Then there is the unique skill of translating your thoughts in a way that connect with someone who may culturally differ from you. In addition, learning another language and culture changes our views of the world, our understanding of others experiences, and, ultimately, our perspective of ourselves.

9 Parenting Tips From Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Over the Years

Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, Willow Smith, Jaden Smith, Trey Smith

Will Smith has been a big advocate of allowing his kids to be as open as they want with him throughout their childhood. However, as they have continued to get older—especially Willow Smith—he's started to realize there are just some things he doesn't want to know.Jada Pinkett Smith's husband sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Thursday and opened up about one of the couple's parenting techniques: the "Circle of Safety."Will explained how, when the kids were really young, they created this circle in which Willow and Jaden Smith were allowed to tell them anything they wanted—even all the bad things they might have done."They're allowed to tell us everything that they did [in the circle of safety], and they can't get in trouble," Will said. "The rule is, if we find out after the circle of safety that there was something you didn't say, there was hell to pay."

The Maxi Dress

There’s no better way to extend the romance of summer then to drip with its essence from head-to-toe in the easy-breezy form of the beloved maxi dress. To bombshell this floor-length legend, opt for a delicate white lace dress and cinch the waist with the contrast of a rope tie belt. Pair with a classically crush-worthy summer bootie. Embolden with a burst of festive color, like a red crocodile tote. Finesse with a mixed assortment of crystal and gold-tone bracelets,  a delicate set of crystal earrings, a cool pair of retro-inspired shades, and a trendy choker. Finish it off with a dark cherry lip!

Julianne to the Rescue: 7 Drugstore Beauty Buys Celeb Makeup Artists Swear by

ESC: Julianne to the Rescue
Contrary to popular belief, celebs use drugstore products, too…or, at least the makeup artists who work on them do. Just ask beauty guru Julianne Kaye, who shares the affordable finds that industry experts like just as much (or even better) than designer brands.
My guilty pleasure is going in to Walgreens for a prescription and walking out with a ton of inexpensive, awesome makeup. It's like when you do a target run for toilet paper but end up spending $300 on things you didn't know you wanted or needed. I've done a lot of drugstore shopping as well as worked with some great brands that have truly amazing products for a fraction of the price of prestige products. You can find some real gems—you just need to know what to get 'em!

Shampoo vs. Dry Shampoo: How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

ESC: Kristen Stewart
Damned if you shampoo, damned if you sham-don't.
The beauty industry has been abuzz with the theory that dry shampoo, everyone's favorite oil-absorbing product, is actually not good for you. Why? The product, typically made from aluminum or corn starch, can dull your hair color and cause major buildup, which may even affect your hair-growth cycle.
Those are some serious drawbacks, especially considering how much dry shampoo is in our hair by the end of the week (Kristen Stewart, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen…you know what we're talking about).

Kanye West Calls Out Taylor Swift and Praises Kim Kardashian at Drake's Concert: "I Am So Glad My Wife Has Snapchat"

Kanye West feels vindicated.
The 39-year-old rapper made a surprise appearance during Drake's concert at the United Center in Chicago Wednesday. The hip-hop heavyweights performed their collaboration, "Pop Style," before West transitioned to his own song, "Famous." Addressing the crowd, he said, "All I gotta say is, I am so glad my wife has Snapchat, because now y'all can know the truth and can't nobody talk s--t about 'Ye no more." West, of course, was referring to the series of Snapchat videos that Kim Kardashian shared 10 days earlier. In the clips, filmed in January, West called Taylor Swift while he was in the recording studio to give her a heads-up that she would be name-dropped. "For all my Southside n---as that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," he rapped. "Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn) / I made that bitch famous."
