Calling All Capricorns: This Is Your Year
Posted on January 12, 2018.
Okay, Capricorn ladies, it’s currently your time to shine! While birthday celebrations may currently be underway, we wanted to help shine a little light on the new year to come, and what 2018 holds for your sign.
Get ready, because this year is all about change! While this may be a little scary, just remember that the only constant is change, and that if you face the changes ahead of you head on, you have lots of growth to look forward to. In particular, the coming year will be bringing you new opportunities. Scratch that – the year won’t actually be bringing you anything. You’ll be facing new opportunities thanks to the hard work you’ve consistently put in over the past year. Ever the independent sign, you’ll be tempted to capitalize on these opportunities by yourself, but this year, perhaps the greatest change of all that you’ll face is that you’ll have to rely on friends and contacts to make true progress. Trust that the network of people in your life have got your back, and you’ll be able to do much more than you ever would be able to do going at it alone.
That said, this is the year to get it! Go for that new job! Make that move across the country! This is the year to really make it count, as the stars are aligned in your favor. Get it, girl!
#TimesUp at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards
Posted on January 10, 2018.
This year’s Golden Globe Awards packed a bit more substance than picking our best dressed celebrities of the evening. 2018’s Golden Globes, which aired on Sunday night, served a purpose. The “#MeToo” movement, which began in an attempt to raise awareness of sexual assault and harassment against women, struck particularly close to home for the entertainment industry in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Sunday’s awards show was a culmination of the movement and the responsibility Hollywood feels to represent all industries in clapping back at sexual violence towards women with its own hashtag, #TimesUp.
All but three attendees wore black to this year’s awards. Yep, the stars left behind their usual ravishing reds and shimmering golds for a more solemn black to symbolize unity within their movement. That isn’t to say the fashion wasn’t fabulous; these were some of the hottest black dresses we have ever seen! Kendall Jenner absolutely killed it in her Giambattista Valli haute couture gown, which had a massive, fun train. Who said dressing for a cause can’t be super stylish?
Highlights from the evening include many great speeches by some of our Hollywood favorites. However, no speech struck a chord as powerful as that of Oprah’s, which brought everyone in the room to their feet in thunderous applause. It was so powerful, in fact, that people are now urging her to run for President in 2020! She definitely let the world know that time is up for women to be treated as second class citizens.
It’s truly incredible that Hollywood rose to the challenge of facing a societal problem that has gone on for way too long. Much love to our favorite actresses (and actors) who made this a night to remember by fighting for such an important cause!
Wine O’Clock (For Your Hair)
Posted on January 4, 2018.
What’s better than a glass of wine at the salon? How about hair products made out of wine? Yes, the geniuses at HASK beauty products have combined our two favorite things and come out with a line of wine-infused hair products(!). We’re talking leave-in sprays and deep conditioning packets that contain all of the same benefits that red wine is now known for, including free radical-fighting antioxidants, and lots of vitamins and omega oils from grapeseed (#winning).
Their leave-in sprays come in your choice of white wine, rose, or red wine, and the deep conditioners come in an array of wine selections, but don’t worry about coming to work smelling like you spent the night hitting the bottle, because these products will leave your hair smelling fresh as grapes. The packaging will also look very familiar to you if you’re as much of a wine connoisseur as we are.
So go ahead, try one of their deep conditioning packets, which gives you just enough time to enjoy a glass of wine. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
