Louboutin for Your Nails

Christian Louboutin, he of crimson-soled-shoe fame, announced that he is releasing an eponymous beauty collection. His first foray is a nail polish line. It makes sense, considering it was an assistant's red nail polish that inspired the red soles of his shoes in 1992. The first shade, Rouge, hits stores on August 6, with 30 remaining shades following on August 31. At $50 a pop, these nail polishes aren't cheap -- but considering the faceted crystal bottle is a work of art in itself, the polishes can double as vanity decor. After all, Louboutins weren't meant to be put in a drawer.   read more

Since most of us don't have the time or desire to work up that kind of sweat, we talked to former New York City Ballet (NYCB) dancer Rachel Piskin and celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser of AKT In Motion to find out how us regular folk (you know, those not training for reality TV stardom) can get the body of a Balanchine muse -- in just three easy, do-anywhere moves a day.   read more

How to Ditch Your Curling Iron Forever

The last time I/the world used foam hair rollers was probably right around the time that blue eye shadow was still a definite fashion "do" and Jessie Spano was tweaking on caffeine pills.

And when summer temps are soaring, getting gorgeous hair without wilting under a curling iron or blow-dryer starts to sound pretty fab. Here's how to get the curly, wavy or voluminous look you're after with foam rollers.   read more

If you have picky eaters in your family, it's so easy to add nutrient-rich produce to soups and smoothies to make them stealthily nutritious -- and your kids will be none the wiser. I heartily recommend you buy a well-made blender a la my beloved Vitamix and see what fruits and veggies you can sneak into the kiddies' food.   read more
