#StressSweat And How To Combat It With Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant

This post is sponsored by Secret, but all opinions herein are my own. Product sample provided by Secret. Girls, being a beauty writer is a lot of fun. So much so that one allows her career to slowly execute a coup over one's entire evening and even weekend time. So shoe-horning dating into the schedule when a gal's got a minimum of 5 post-work beauty launches a week is tough going and requires a full-value Metrocard, logistical know-how (never schedule a date at a venue far from either where you're Continue Reading [...]

Three Beauty Brands Determined To Stop Bullying: Secret, Tanda And Soap & Glory

Did you know that more than 30% of female students grades 6-12 were bullied at school or cyberbullied during the 2009 – 2010 school year (report from U.S. Department of Justice)? It's insane. Even someone as phenomenal as USA gold-medal gymnast Gabby Douglas has dealt with bullying.

I will pretty much do anything not to sweat.  Read on...In my apparent agenda to fully emulate a lady of yore, (I fully subscribe to all but extinct dating rituals, I actually faint like a 16th century dame (seriously--it's happened several times, all unironically) and I frequently forget that I have HD channels, much to Dina's exasperation with me) I do everything in my power not to sweat, to only glow. Workout-wise, I stick to Core Fusion and yoga and will go to any lengths to avoid being late. Continue Reading [...]

Secret Natural Mineral Deodorant: Odor Dies Of Natural Causes!

Odor has died of natural causes! The dude above, BTW, is the detective featured in my favorite Golden Girls episode (the murder mystery episode, obv), The Case of the Libertine Belle. I selected this photo of the gumshoe specifically, because this is the moment when Sophia quipped, "Does anybody but me think the hat is a LITTLE precious?" Priceless. Anywho, Dorothy, Blanche, Sophia and Rose were cracking a case of a murder, but our task today is to figure out how odor has died of natural causes. Secret Continue Reading [...]

Fictionary: Pit-stop

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don't exist, but should.I recently started swimming again, after finally coming to terms with the fact that that is the only form of exercise (at a gym--I do enjoy a super-long walk) that I LIKE. Seriously. A New York Health and Racquet just opened right by my apartment with a pool, so I quit my long-term abusive relashe with New York Sports Club, grabbed my Speedo and do some laps in the (albeit tiny--I like to affectionately refer to it Continue Reading [...]
