Then, last year, a week after Mother's Day, I finally figured out what authentic beauty was. On May 16th, 2011, I gave birth to and subsequently lost my daughter during my fifth month of pregnancy. During my pregnancy, I gleefully packed on 30 pounds, feeling plump and beautiful. My extraordinary weight gain became a thing of humor. I called myself the clumsy walrus on a daily basis.
Here are three ways you can honor your beauty this Mother's Day.
The now-infamous "Tanning Mom" of New Jersey has a dark side to her public image that almost matches her extremely artificial suntanned complexion.
Some actresses like Michelle Williams and Emma Watson may love having short hair, but not Cameron Diaz! According to Us Weekly, the 39-year-old 'What To Expect When You're Expecting' star revealed that she didn't mean to cut her hair so short, and that she burst into tears when she realized the mistake the friend/stylist had made.
The story this week that a New Jersey mom allegedly let her 5-year-old daughter suffer second-degree burns by placing her in a tanning booth shocked the country.
Here in New York, we know so many inspiring women who are kicking butt in the digital media world. With social media playing a larger and larger role in our lives — including dating lives — every day, it's great to see women taking the reins.
The winner of a Britain-wide beauty contest sponsored by Lorraine Cosmetics, Colgate has mathematically perfect looks, according to statistics reported by the Daily Mail. Not only is the 18-year-old's visage perfectly symmetrical, but she has the "optimum ratio" between her mouth, eyes, chin, and forehead.
Today I was inspired by the cold and drizzly weather here in Southern California. I used to think that a nasty rainy day, or a bout of tear filled heartache meant that I was limited to waterproof mascara, and some lip gloss....but not anymore! Although waterproof makeup is usually thought of as a summer staple, I find that I have incorporated it into my makeup arsenal for all seasons. An bad breakup, allergy attack, sad movie, or blistery Spring day have nothing on me now.
According to experts in the field, men are going in for more and more hair removal treatments at spas. At the center of this trade is a male version of the Brazilian wax, a wax that removes all pubic hair from a person's groin. The so-called "Boyzilian" (or as we call it, "Brozilian") may be inspired by porn, or just weird evolutionary shame.
It might just be the last taboo: admitting you don't find your partner physically attractive anymore. In a culture that worships physical beauty and encourages you to place attraction somewhere near the first spot on a list of non-negotiables when choosing a marriage partner, admitting that you don't always find your partner attractive is considered blasphemous and a valid reason to walk away.
In case you missed it, Samantha Brick, whose name even sounds made-up, wrote about how "pretty" she is, and how it leads to constant spontaneous gift-giving by men around her. "There are downsides to being pretty," she wrote. "The main one being that other women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks."
Hooray! Winter is officially over, and spring has arrived. Which means cherry blossoms, the smell of lilacs, the return of the sun…and a torrential downpour of body-shaming ads that would like you to think that you have been a fat lump all winter, and that you are unfit for a swimsuit. Welcome to the beginning of "bikini season."
