We're big fans of Jennette McCurdy, so it's no surprise that we just fell in love with her feature in the book Glitter and Glam by uber-talented makeup artist Melanie Mills.

Allow me to speak out for all the women on your gift list. They're begging for you to buy them this book.

Motivational Mondays, Timber Style

Is it Christmas or Thanksgivingukkah?!
Look what just came out... SCORE!

Pitbull was also awesome this morning on Good Morning America. He's really entertaining, y'all. Batkid made an appearance as well. He had to save Pitbull from The Joker who locked him in the dressing room!

Now listen here.

Be happy you're breathing this Motivational Monday.

If Batkid's courageous fight against cancer doesn't inspire you, then I just don't know what will. You're probably also the type that hates Miley Cyrus' kittens, guardian angel red foxes and puppies donning Santa hats.

You can do it! You can do it all night long! I believe in you ;o)

Stay motivated my friends. And drink some Dos Equis.

From Belieber to Believer, Social Media Style

Check out what Bieber did.
He jumped off a cliff! For real. Don't worry, Beliebers. He didn't die. He just killed it in the gym. Look at those abs in that article.

While digging into my boat loads of email that I receive daily, I found a splendidly superb article about the power of social media and how it relates to vamping up your writing career.

Furthermore, I give zero cares if you don't actually write for a living. Read it anyway because it will indeed help you, no matter what your career is. Welcome to 2013! It's the way business is done and hugely impacts how many people are picking up what you're putting down. Think about it- today is and was yesterday's future. The way I look at marketing these days is this: you're either mastering the new tech and software out there (that's made readily available) or you're dying on the vine. Just like a tasty vino, wine cannot be made without first harvesting the grapes. Then I think you stomp on them or something, take some time for your smells like feet wine to ferment, and then finally drink the success of your labors. Whatever your occupation, marketing used to be buying lead lists. Then came along direct mail and people were waayyy into the buzz word called email marketing. Now with just a tad bit of ingenuity used, you can cultivate your own lead lists with zero dollars leaving your pocket. Sure, time is valuable. Even more so, it's an investment risk that at least I'm willing to take.

A few tips:

1- Don't just start an account and then ignore it only to wonder why you're not drinking the merlot yet. You've heard me say it once and I'll say it again. I lose followers when they see me take small breaks for a period of time.

2- Make some friendly alliances with people who play well with others. They're not only like-minded individuals and friends. They also give you access to their followers and ultimately increase your amount of impressions you're putting into George Bush's Internets.

3- What will make you effective at social media? Dumb luck. I don't have the exact answer. If I did, I'd be doing it. Interesting topics, wittiness or humor helps increase people sharing you. Also, hashtags give you a better percentage. If you're partaking in Snoozefest 2013, then by all means bore people to death. However, if you want to be the next performer in the lineup at the YouTube Awards, you've got to talk about what's popular. Ignoring the Gen X & Gen Y demographic es no mas bueno. They're your next customers. Line them up, baby! Even if you don't want to twerk alongside them...

Enjoy your day! 
Happy Friday, #FF style!

The Secret: White Sands Hair Care

Jenna Dewan Tatum outside
Live With Kelly & Michael

White Sands Hair Care is the secret behind many hot in Hollywood looks right now.

Jenna Dewan Tatum, photographed to the left, is seen outside Live With Kelly & Michael on Oct. 24th. She looks stunning right after having a baby and her hair is so shiny. Surely people got around to interviewing her hairstylist Ryan Trygstad. Now the entire woman population has to thank White Sands Hair Care for their ingenious Orchids Oil!

White Sands Orchids Oil, $25
Get it here.

UnderCover Styling Spray, $21
Get it here.

Kristin Chenoweth is even using White Sands in her new pixie cut. Jonathan, her super stylist, divulges that he blow dries her hair with the Undercover Styling Spray.

This hair look is frozen in space! How cool!

For me personally, I fell in love with White Sands quite a few years back when all the models at this hair show had really long hair and guess what?! It was sticking straight up! It was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen and instantly knew this company would be here for the long haul.

White Sands Liquid Texture Spray, $19
Get it here.
I recently used the Liquid Texture Firm Hold Spray for a Beetlejuice crazy hair look for Halloween and it totally rocked! Now Mister Ed keeps asking me to shape his mane into a mohawk and I'm all like, "Let's do this thang!"


Bwa ha ha! 
A friend of mine on Facebook posted this link and now I'm laughing so hard. Which becomes minorly embarrassing when there's no one else in the room with you ;o) Thanks, friend. It's just me and my computer against the world, kinda' like Tupac or some other real hard core gangster stuff.

New Video Premieres

Pour it up, pour it up on the girliness! Are you feeling the vibe? However, Kanye is almost taking home the estrogenic trophy this week. The galloping horses are awesome, but really should of turned into unicorns by the end of the Bound 2 video. Unicorns make everything better. Like Duh. I mean, everyone deserves to find love. Don't get me wrong. Deep down, I think most people are good in nature and just want to feel understood. We are all human, unless of course you're a zombie trying to make your way into Rihanna's new music video.

But, what is up with people proclaiming their love to the world? And why is the video vibrating back and forth? Unless you're trying to make it look like sexy time. We totes get it. You're a couple and things go down in your bedroom. Personally, all the jittery-ness makes me feel like I'm sitting shot gun and you're indeed a terrible driver. Quick. Pull over. At least with Rihanna's zombie apocalyptic feel, it's suspenseful and stuff. I feel like I need to call Brad Pitt and get her an antidote, like yesterday. While we're conversing, I'm going to ask him if he has an extra camera tripod laying around that the Bound 2 video can borrow. And then I'll go back to jamming out on girly relationship nostalgia. AAAAHHHHLLLRIGHTYTHENNN!

Cover Girl Catching Fire Makeup Looks

Rep your district, y'all...

SALTY Holiday Looks

SALTY Cosmetics, get it here.

Take a look at some SALTY Cosmetics! I just love when SALTY posts eyeball and lip pics. Her artistry is always gorgeous. 

These looks are perfect to recreate this holiday season. Can you believe they're all mineral?! Without the bismuth, talc, paraben & other preservative nonsense?

With SALTY's Lickerous Lip Collection, you can obtain anywhere from a slight tint on the lips all the way to full on, in your face pigment, and all with the same product! They're also perfect for traveling since they remain in an almost solid state, like a lipstick. But, boy, do they gloss as well. Don't even get me started on the healthy dose of vitamins & moisturizers it contains. Another added benefit is that you'll never find SALTY on the "lipsticks that contain lead" list. Amen to that. Scented with black cherry butter cream, the smell brings me back to the days when my Grandpa would take me to the ice cream shop for their black cherry ice cream. Yum, yum, yum. Good times. Anyway, don't judge me. Once you try these on your lippers as well, you'll become all nostalgic inside and stuff, too.

Below are some of the colors featured from above:

Copper Mines Eyeshadow, $8.97

For the gold look:
Lid- I Found A Golden Ticket
Outer Corner- Caramelly Delights
Crease- Copper Mines
Brow Bone & Inner Corner- Vita's Pink

SALTY is also quite the hoot on Facebook. We highly admire her shoe obsession & sense of humor. If you want to follow an awesomely girly page, then click here

Angelina Jolie in Maleficent

Disney's Maleficent, Premiering in 2014

Oh, Mama Mia! 

I don't know about you, but I've been dying inside with anticipation ever since I found out Disney cast Angelina Jolie as Maleficent. 

So, naturally since Disney released this awesome sauce right here, they've just sped up my dying process. Thanks, Maleficent. I looked in the mirror & clearly you've cast a spell on me, too. Take one look at my mug and you'll realize I'm dying more and more each day. You're depleting my collagen stash slowly yet painfully. Give me back my collagen in my cheeks. My eyes need a lift and you've got to be joking me right now with this sun damage, hyperpigmentation & fine lines. Oh, well. At least I can say I got to watch Angelina Jolie as Maleficent before I go.

Amen to that. Holler. Woot. Woot.

Or, maybe I should just ask Maleficent what concoction she uses for totally gorgeous beauty. Place my order. I'll take one of whatever skin care she uses, please...
