Why anyone would want to have nails with a texture similar to deer antlers is beyond me, but for some reason, Sally Hansen bottled it up and manipulated stores to sell it proudly on their shelves. The new Velvet Texture nail polish is marketed as a matte, easy-to-use polish that produces a velvety look "you've always wanted." After opening the stylishly square and trendy-looking bottle, I took the wand and brushed strokes of the color, Lavish, on my nails.
Just as quickly as my cat's staple dry food disappeared off local grocery store shelves, my mainstay eyeliner brand followed in Whiskas' footsteps. So, I decided to try Flower Beauty's Easy on the Eyes Long Wear Eyeliner in brown. Drew Barrymore's U.S.-made, never-tested-on-animals products haven't let me down, and have become the most popular brand in my makeup tray. For daytime use, I've been wearing black-brown, a shade that isn't harsh, works well with my skin tone and hair color and could easily be smudged for a subtle smokey eye.
After years of taking my hair to every shade of dark brown, black brown and red, I finally allowed my stylist to add some highlights and add a bit of spice to my natural brunette shade. And then the brittle dryness set in a few weeks later. With curling irons, blow dryers, straighteners and the elements of dry North Dakota weather, my hair was feeling overworked and underpaid.
I'm always concerned about my naturally wavy head of hair, especially in the summer. In winter, the frizz isn't as overwhelming without the humidity, but I am worried I might be overworking my strands with every curling iron or straightener event, or just with washing and blow-drying. When I looked at spending a little more money to keep my coif healthy, I was taken by the minimal price, shapely container and golden color of OGX Extra Strength Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Hair Oil. It sounds overwhelmingly scary, but it's not.
At least once a month, Choice Health and Fitness’s Sensational Senior group meets to celebrate birthdays, catch up with one another and discuss important health issues. “The class works on physical, social and mental aspects of life,” said Choice Senior Adviser Brenda Gjelsness. “We want to encourage working out physically, but also making friends.
Though there are various treatments available to manage mental disorders, the stigma and discrimination of individuals suffering across the world continues, often leading to abuse, rejection and isolation, according to the World Health Organization. The UND Health and Wellness Center is working with the Counseling Center to bring awareness to the campus and community about mental health. "Now, more than ever, it's important for students to know there's no shame in seeking help," Lacey Erickson, health and wellness marketing manager, said.
Starting a family can set even the calmest of new parents on edge. Knowing whether a newborn is crying because of hunger, pain, frustration or boredom is something every mom...
When thinking of makeup, it’s easy to overlook the importance of flawless accessories for application. I never knew that was the case until I met the Sonia Kashuk Holiday 2013 gift set at Target on a clearance shelf long after the holidays had passed. Each year, Kashuk brings a new design to the store, often supplying a matching cosmetic bag for an added incentive, but I always looked beyond the glamour, thinking my cheap off-brand brushes, though simple, got the job done. How naïve I was.
Valerie Hanson was straightening items on a shelf at Kittsona when she was approached for the Herald’s latest Street Style. Dressed for fall resistance, the new Grand Forks gift store’s sales associate played with colors of tangerine and cobalt blue against dark wash jeans, a simple white cardigan and brown boots.
I recently visited the Big Apple to see a friend and visit areas of that sprawling city I’d missed the last time. Usually, I’m quite good at packing early and thoroughly, checking everything at least twice, but upon my arrival I realized my soap had been forgotten. Sure, my host had body wash, but the liquid soaps dry out my sensitive skin and leave it feeling coated in residue. So when we walked by the French beauty store, L’Occitane, I picked up the Verbena Soap Bar and couldn’t wait to try it out.
