Sleeping Beauty

BEAUTY TRUTH | BEAUTY SLEEP
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Ok, we all know that sleep, sometimes referred to as “beauty sleep” is a huge determinant to good health and of course, beauty, but how many of us actually get enough of our z’s? I admit it! I am totally guilty of not getting my share of rest! In fact, I’m lucky if I get a good 6 hours on some nights. So just what are the affects of not catching enough shut eye?Continue reading

Tricks are For Kids

PHOTOSHOP | MADONNA | VUITTON
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Yes we’ve all heard of the wonders of Photoshop, but have we all seen the evidence? My favorite picture is Madonna modeling for Louis Vuitton–not only did they make her look young, fresh, and alive, but check out how they smoothed out her muscle tone to make her look more feminine and busty.  Here are some of my favorite Photoshopped pictures. It’s amazing what a “little” photoshop can do!

Things That Make You Go…Ooohh!

ENTERTAINER | BODY BOOK
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Being an economic shopper, I am always looking for the best deal, no matter where I am.  Having used the Entertainer before, I know these books have the ability to save you incredible amounts of money.  However, I never thought about purchasing the body book.  If you are a spa-lover or salon-whore, then you MUST buy this book.  Not only is it almost double the size as it was in previous years, meaning almost EVERY spa/salon in the UAE (predominantly Dubai)  is in this book, but the prices is very reasonable this year. At 225 AED, enjoy more manis, pedis, facials, and massages than you can handle.

Do Something Beautiful

Haiti needs our help! It is estimated that over 100,000 people are dead and many are injured without means for survival. A broken bone in Haiti, can unfortunately mean death by infection. Without the proper medical attention more Haitians will surely die and more children will be left without parents to care for them.

We can make a difference; hopeforhaitinow.org is an organization that dedicates 100% of funds raised to relief efforts. For as little as 5 cents (US), you can save a life.

Donate! Nothing is more beautiful than saving a life!

All Hail the QUEEN!! Alexander McQueen, that is.

These intense platform heels command a lot of attention on their own, let alone in a bright chartreuse hue. Brazilian beauty Raquel Zimmerman makes taming a pool of slithery snakes look effortless in Alexander McQueen’s S/S 2010 Campaign.

V MAGAZINE | HAUTE EDITORIAL
By Huda Heidi Kattan

No matter what book store you enter, if you go anywhere near their fashion magazines, it’s almost impossible to miss V Magazine.  Sure, the magazine itself is quite large, but that’s not what grabs your attention. No! It’s the hot cover photo that will catch your eye. For it’s artistic brilliance, we commemorate V Magazine for having some of the hautest, most visually stimulating high fashion covers  in the industry. Bravo V!

Not so Photo-Friendly

They have the fame, the fortune, washboard abs and chizzled jaws. Yes we know, celebrities are perfect, or at least they appear that way. On the other hand, anyone who has played around with Photoshop knows how easy it is to transform someones look from human to someone who looks like they could have been made out of plastic.

Here are a few photos of celebs before and after Photoshop. I guess they are human after all!

When a Little Nip and Tuck is Too Much

Heidi Montag, 2010 post-surgery

Heidi Montag 2006, pre plastic surgery

Has Heidi Montag gone too far? I think we know the answer to that question. After having 10 procedures done in one day (this is not her first time under the knife), Montag claims she is ready for some more work. According to several sources, her surgeon who performed the surgery has refused to do any more work on The Hills star, but will this be the end or will we see a cat lady copy cat?
