How To Tuesday: Temporary Tinted Tresses

chalk hopscotchA couple of months ago, I did a little beauty tutorial on how to get the tinted tresses of Katy Perry, Lauren Conrad, Jaime King and the likes.  I love this look for a summer music festival, night out with the girls, or braided into a fishtail braid.  It’s flirty, playful, and so, so easy.  Plus, it washes right out with your regular shampoo.

It’s all the fun without the commitment (and who doesn’t love that?).

What you’ll need:

  • Hair
  • Colored chalk
  • Water
  • Hairspray
  • Curling/flat iron

Voting will resume next week, so be sure and tune in!

Would You Wednesday: Whose Side Are You On?
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

celebrities side boobThe side boob isn’t really anything new, but in the past couple of years, it’s been making a pretty strong campaign to be the new sexy skin .  Could it be?  Side boob the new cleavage?  Somehow the side boob is sexy without being slutty.  It’s suggestive without being too saucy.  Celebrities have been spotted all over town letting their mammaries sneak out the side to catch some fresh air.  I’m talking about good girls like Ann Hathaway and Lauren Conrad.  I mean, it’s not like I’m using Lindsay Lohan as my moral compass.  Even magazines have taken notice of this sneaky sideways trend and April’s covers are smattered with side boob.

This past weekend, I slipped into a new dress that was not exactly brassiere friendly.  So, I snapped that baby right off and wore the dress sans support.  When I gave myself a gander in the mirror, I wondered, “Is there such a thing as too much side boob?”  Well, what could I do but take a quick poll on Twitter?:

 

Uh, Dad, if you’re reading… I absolutely wore a sweater over this.  When I arrived at my destination, there were a few more young children than I had anticipated so I did keep my arms mostly glued to my sides so as to avoid any awkward nursing attempts.  What did everyone else think of my free flowing friends?  The general consensus was positive.  Both males and females commented on my peek-a-boo sideshow.  Granted, I did get a couple of not so friendly glances from a few women, but I guess that’s to be expected.  It seems that the side boob is also less offensive than the over the top push up cleavage of days yore.

So, now I ask you, my lovely WhyDid readers:  Is “side boob” the new cleavage?  And is there such a thing as too much?

Now, pick a side.

How To Tuesday: Chalk It Up
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz,How To Tuesday

sidewalk chalkAs mentioned, pastels are a big trend for spring.  Everything from clothing to accessories, and even your hair can be a part of the trend.  While candy colored hair is nothing new, you may not be ready to take on the Smurf blue of Katy Perry or the granny grey of Kelly Osbourne.  Perhaps you’d be more apt to try out the tinted ends of LC.  Still feeling a little nervous about playing with color?  How about a temporary fix that will get you the look without the commitment?  Yeah, I thought so.

Remember the days of coloring your hair with highlighters or Kool-Aid?  Well, this is almost just as simple.  So simple, in fact, that you are gonna smack your forehead and say, “Duh!  Why didn’t I think of that?”

Go from ho-hum to super fun in no time at all- and all you need is some simple sidewalk chalk!  Have no fear, this should wash out in one to two shampoos!

Real People, Real Style: Bikini Babe
Written by: WhyDid | Real People Real Style

Several months ago, I introduced you to the ridiculously fun and totally customizable bikini brand, Mikini Bikini.  The line was a big hit with you lovely ladies, so I asked the beauty behind the brand if she’d like to let us in on her own personal style secrets.  Lucky for us, she obliged and now the bikini babe (and newlywed) is gonna share what makes her style so chic.

Name: Christina Iaquinta Stuber

Wearing:  Club Monaco dress (bought this for my wedding shower – it’s my wedding colors, grey and yellow!), Lucky boots from TJMaxx (Found these last month and have probably worn them 5/7 days each week!), Crossbody from Banana Republic (“just because” gift from husband when we first started dating 5 years ago – I still love it!) Rhinestone necklace from Pinky Otto (gift from my Momma).

Occupation: Co-Founder of Mikini Bikini, Buyer for TJMaxx and Marshalls

Hometown/Current Town: Hometown: Bridgeport, WV; Current Town: Boston, MA

1. I would describe my style as: Casual luxury.  I dress how I feel, and a lot of my pieces come with a story or memory!

2.  I can’t leave the house without: RayBans and my wedding ring.

3. Based on wardrobe alone, if I could live in any time period, it would be: The 60’s would be amazing – mini skirts, skinny jeans, and fake eyelashes, what more could you want?

4. Best/biggest splurge (worth every penny): I try to find good deals on every-day wear, and tend to splurge on my more “timeless” pieces.  My biggest splurge this year was actually for my husband – a Breitling Navitimer  watch.

5. Best fashion advice I’ve ever received: If you wouldn’t wear it in front of your father, then don’t wear it!

6. Biggest fashion pet peeve (a trend that just needs to go away): High-waisted jeans.

7. What I would tell my 13 year old self: Oh geez – I only can pick one thing?! Some of the items I wore were just absurd.  Like a mini skirt that was cow print, or these knee high boots that looked like moon shoes.. and I had this belly chain that I thought was really cool.  Even formals, I wore 2-piece dresses!  I’d do it all again though – you have to experiment in order to find your true style later on.

8. Weirdest beauty trick that I swear by: I sleep with my hair in a high bun.  When I take it down in the morning, it has lots of volume!

9. Don’t care if it ever goes out of style, I’m going to keep wearing: long hair, ha!  I’ve never had my hair shorter than shoulder length.

10. I would love to trade closets with: Lauren Conrad

Fun fact: Red cups from Starbucks make me ridiculously happy!

Now go customize your very own Mikini Bikini for your next “escaping the arctic” trip.

Would You Wednesday: Color Me Beautiful

Lately, A-List ladies have been trading in conventionally colored coifs for wild shades that you’d normally only see on Rainbow Brite and My Little Pony.  Two of the latest to try this trend on their tresses are Katy Perry (who has gone through several shades of pink) and Lauren Conrad (with a pale ombre peach).  While they’ve been making a splash with their colorful new ‘do’s, they aren’t the first to go  ROYGBIV on us.

Oh yes, it seems that celebrities have run the gamut on high impact hairdo’s.  But what I really want to know is whether or not this hairdo is actually a hairDON’T.  I’m all for self expression and trying out the newest in beauty… but looking like a Skittle probably isn’t in the cards for me.  I don’t think my hairbrush wants to taste the rainbow.  Call me a traditionalist, but I think I’ll stick to haircolors commonly occurring in nature.  What do you think?

Now I’m craving Starburst. Great.
