    5 Easy Ways to Get a Bikini Body

    5 Easy Ways to Get a Bikini Body
    Jenny Beres | BettyConfidential.com During a six year stint living in Florida, I was fortunate enough to have a personal trainer as a best friend. He taught a 5 a.m. class at the local club — a class he dubbed “Booty Camp.” Sound harmless? The first time I ever took this class, I couldn’t sit down on the toilet for a ...

    Bargain Shopping for High Fashion

    Bargain Shopping for High Fashion
    Retailers are in big trouble. Especially the ritzy ones. But their pain may be your financial gain. Want $160 off a cashmere sweater? $300 off some designer sunglasses? Two for one?

    Wear these styles at your own risk I love fall. The beginning of crisp weather, Halloween, and — finally! — the end of wedding season. But my favorite thing about fall is the return of cool-weather attire. Scarves, coats, and boots — call me conservative (or insecure), but I'll take them over bikinis and sundresses any day.

    How to Recession-Proof Your Wardrobe

    How to Recession-Proof Your Wardrobe
    It's official: America's in a recession. The worst since the Great Depression, to be exact. And while fashion is likely not the first (or second, or third, or probably even fourth) topic on your mind during these most uncertain of economic times, that doesn't mean you should abandon your wardrobe and let your personal style fall by the wayside.

    There's needing makeup, and there's needing makeup ... to keep your job San Diego waitress Shenoa Vild refused to wear make-up to work – so she was canned.

    YOU: No Photoshopping Necessary

    YOU: No Photoshopping Necessary
    One of my favorite non-profits in San Francisco, About-Face, is on a mission to make a difference in how women see themselves. It's no secret that pages of glossies, gossip mags, blogs and tabloids are overridden with airbrushed photos and images of women who were already too thin to begin with. And yet what are we doing about it? Nothing. Or, ...

    6 Telltale Signs of an Ill-Fitting Bra

    6 Telltale Signs of an Ill-Fitting Bra
    I used to assume that the oft-cited statistic about 80 percent of women wearing the wrong size bra was a scare tactic by the lingerie industry to sell more goods. Then I got measured on a whim recently and realized I’ve been wearing the wrong cup and band sizes for years. Others I know also found out after being fitted that ...

    Male Actor Says, "No, Thanks, Britney!"
    If Neil Patrick Harris had his way, Britney Spears would be banned from the set of "How I Met Your Mother." Nothing against the pop singer personally - he just doesn't think the show should bring guests aboard for a ratings boost alone. "I'm in the minority that our show does not need stunt casting in order to succeed," Harris declared ...

    Five Manners You Don’t Have to Mind Anymore

    Our idea of what constitutes good manners changes over time, because politeness and courtesy take on new meanings as society and technology progress.

    Your Shoes Are Killing Your Feet

    My obsession with shoes started at an early age, probably when I was just old enough to put on my mother’s high heels and wobble around the kitchen.
