With Memorial Day weekend in our rear view mirror a lot of us are ready for summer and weekends spent outdoors at the lake, beach and park. Do you have your summer sun protection ready to go? Even on overcast days the damage from the sun can be harmful. Make sure you are your family are protected from damaging rays with one of my favorite sunscreen lines, Supergoop. A great line for people with sensitive skin, check out my new favorite from their great collection of products.
If you are a year round blonde or like to highlight for summer you know caring for blonde hair can be tricky. I have tried a lot of purple shampoo’s and hands down the best I have used is Unite’s Blonda Shampoo. For those new to the land of blonde highlights, violet toned shampoos help keep your blonde color cool, shiny and gorgeous instead of the dreaded brassiness that is common with lightened hair. Celebs like Julianne Hough use it to brighten her blonde hair and look great on the red carpet.
January Jones poses for the latest issue of the online magazine The Edit. The pictures are amazing! She looks more beautiful than ever! In the interview, January opens up about her son’s paternity (again), being pregnant, and knowing that she would have to raise her son alone.
You can read the full interview here, but here are some highlights:
Why she stays off social media: “As an actor, if people know too many things about you they won’t believe you in a certain character. You don’t want people to have a preconceived idea of who you are.”
On keeping her son’s father a secret: “It’s just not something the public needs to know. I don’t divulge my sexual preferences. There are parts of your life – no matter what your job – that should remain private. When I was starting out, other actors advised me to keep certain things close to the vest. When you become a public figure people want to know everything about you, and then [they] pick it apart – it becomes negative. When my son asks those questions, I want him to [hear it from me]. I don’t want him to be able to Google it.”
Being pregnant: It was the “most healthy and peaceful I have ever felt”, and she can’t imagine parenthood any other way. “I don’t have room for anything else, so I don’t know how I would have done it with a partner. I knew I would be raising my son alone. It was something I went in to knowingly, I was prepared mentally – and I was excited about it.”
Starting off as a model: “I didn’t like modeling. The greatest thing I took from [it] was self-appreciation: I was good at dealing with disappointment. You go on 10 go-sees a day, so when I got to LA and started auditioning, I was used to rejection.”
When ‘Mad Men’ ends: “It will be very sad. We are all so close that we will keep in touch, but I don’t think we will ever have this kind of experience again – from the relationships we’ve made to the success we have had, to the cultural impact [of the show].”
Betty in the end: “I am supposed to say I’d like Betty to find happiness or end up with Don, but I think that would be unrealistic. People just don’t end up with the happily ever after, you have your good and bad days. I am not sure Betty is the type of person who, when faced with what would make her happy, would be able to recognize it.”
I think it’s great that January keeps the identity of her son’s father to herself. I think she’s right, it’s no one’s business. When the time comes – the only person that needs to know is her son. I can appreciate her honesty, really. She’s very abrupt, but I kinda like it.

On May 8, Grammy-winning superstar Mariah Carey bared a new physique that set jaws dropping as she premiered her new “#Beautiful” music video during American Idol. Now, her personal trainer, Bernardo Coppola, sits down exclusively with Life & Style and dishes on Mimi’s recent slimdown routine.
Bernardo tells Life & Style, out now, “We do a lot of swimming, aquatic exercises, cardio and weights for toning,” adding that he sees her four to six times a week, “even with her busy schedule.”
The key, he says, is switching up workouts so they stay unexpected and fun. That, and following his Body by Bernardo diet plan: Six small meals a day really rev his clients’ metabolisms. “Working out, dedication and specific nutrition,” Bernardo shares, “is what makes Mariah sculpted and lean.”

I don’t know why it took me so long to try Benefit they’re real mascara, I love most everything they make. I received a little trial size from Sephora and let me tell you this is one eye popping mascara. The brush has lots of bristles that make full coverage a cinch. The formula makes my eyelashes look so long and it adds thickness without clumping.
