Ish Don’t Think So: Gwyneth’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover

Just… no. The subscriber’s cover of Harper’s Bazaar featuring Gwyneth Paltrow, is not doing it for me. Do I love her hair and makeup? Yes. I don’t, however, love that she’s wearing a SHIRT sans pants. Look, Gwyn’s got gorge gams… let’s all just pause and appreciate that. But I can SEE her tush cheeks and that is just not okay.

I love a short dress. In fact, the whole of my 18th year was spent in teeny tiny ones, along with shorts with no longer than a 2″ inseam. But even then, I made sure nothing important was “peeking out.” I’d love to see Gywneth’s dress with just an additional inch or two.

Weekly Phenom List

It’s NOT coming together today, friends. I had an impromptu BURSEday party (means birthday – stems from a hilarious story my friend Stephanie told about a woman with a thick accent and a smoker’s voice thinking she should sing a solo of the birthday song because she’s such a phenom singer in her opinion – and THAT is how she pronounces “birthday.”) last night at Highbar and am currently enduring a champangover. So without further ado, here’s what I’m loving this week:

Worth the Splurge: Alterna Ten Shampoo


I know. I KNOW. It’s $60 shampoo. In a world where we live as people, how can that be necessary? Try it out and you’ll see. The conditioner is also phenomenal, but I think spending $120 on a shampoo/condish combo is a bit cra. I’d rather save it for my Christian Louboutin fund. If you have the means, I certainly recommend it. If you don’t, I’d recommend you pair the shampoo with Terax Ultra-Moisturizing Daily Conditioner, an easier-on-your-wallet $22.

It has to be said: I have the best hair day of my LIFESTYLE when I use this shampoo. It’s highly concentrated (so a little dab’ll do ya) and sulfate free. I seriously have half a mind to never let a sulfate near my locks again.
