Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray!

This styling spray adds volume and texture to the hair to create a sexy, wind-blown feel. Its salt-infused formula adds fullness, hold, and a cool, matte finish. Salt water is no secret to editorial stylists for adding volume and texture, and anyone who has been in the ocean knows of that salty, sexy, sun-dried, wind-styled feel (that seems such a shame to wash out). So while Bumble and bumble hasn’t exactly bottled the real thing, they’ve replicated and improved it, including seaweed and kelp extracts to enhance moisture.

24 Hours Left To Make A Pledge for “Bridegroom,” A Film That’s Making History!

This past May, Shane Bitney Crone posted a YouTube video titled, “It Could Happen To You” as a way to honor his partner, Tom Bridegroom, who died in a horrible accident. Shane also wanted to show the world what can happen when you aren’t legally prepared for the unexpected and you don’t have equal rights.

His YouTube video has been viewed almost 3 million times. This led Shane to partner with Linda Bloodworth Thomason, The director/producer of the critically acclaimed Clinton film, “Man From Hope,” and the Emmy winning TV series, “Designing Women,” to turn his story into a feature length documentary.

Feel free to return to commenting in total secrecy. :)


PHOTO: Kate Winslet tells Vanity Fair: “I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks”

Kate Winslet is a very vocal advocate of natural beauty, which she consistently promotes a healthy attitude towards body image. In the new issue of Vanity Fair Italia, Kate opens up about her famous figure.

A career spanning 20 years that has gained her what no other actress ever dreamed of: six nominations for the Academy Awards and one Oscar. And all this before she turned 37. After her great year in 2009, her over exposition at the latest Venice Film Festival in September 2011 (CarnageContagion and the tv series Mildred Pierce) and the new 3D-converted release of Titanic to celebrate the fifteenth year of the famous movie, this may be the reason why we won’t see much of her this year. A kick back, but perhaps also the chance for a first, small, look back on life. Kate Winslet talks about this to Vanity Fair, which dedicates her the cover of its May 30th issue.

You are often talking about your “ordinary life”; is such a life actually possible?

I have always lived an ordinary life, and always will. It’s who and what has to do with my job that makes it “unordinary”. I cook, go to the supermarket, pick my children up at school. You have surely read something about it regarding my life.

Yes, I actually have. About your being normal and ordinary, a full literature has been written.

And it’s all true. I am aware that, since my career started so early and was lived so publicly, there are people who don’t stop wondering about me and how I actually lead my life. How does she deal with her children? Where do she leave them? My children are with me all the time. Period.
Another Kate Winslet classic: her fight in the name of all the women who do not wear XS. Bored of talking about it?

Better say that I’m bored of what it means that we are still here talking about it: it means that nothing has changed. Otherwise, no, I believe it is important to go on insisting that normality is not what we are exposed to. Honestly, among my acquaintances there is no woman wearing XS. No, sorry, there is one: my daughter. The point is that Mia is 11 years old.

Do remarks on your weight bother you?

No more. It’s one of those things I learned quickly to ignore. Once it was different, it hurt me. When I was twenty I pretended it didn’t bother me, but I felt very bad, I did. In front of journalists and the public I acted superior, but I was dying inside. Now everything is different. It takes time, but you can learn it.

And how did you learn?

I took the hardest way: smashing my face against it.

For a woman who has been fighting with weight all of her life, it’s harder.

I know what you mean, and it’s true that you need much time to get rid of the fat girl you once were, but – you know – I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks. Wow, isn’t this a wonderful line!

She is just so beautiful! Love her!
