And my Lauren Conrad girl crush continues…

Even if I didn’t have a perpetual Lauren Conrad girl crush, I’d have to acknowledge she looks super-hot on the cover art for her new beauty book, Lauren Conrad Beauty. Topics covered in the book include tips for creating a strong foundation by maintaining healthy skin, diet, exercise, as a her fave makeup techniques and more. (Including, one hopes, a section on looking LIKE Lauren.) Lauren is also releasing a novel on the same day as her beauty advice book. Starstruck, a sequel to The Fame Game, and Lauren Conrad Beauty will both be released on October 12. Photo:...

Why yes, you say — isn’t Aly a good little Jewish girl? She is — sometimes — but celebrating Easter from afar has always been a bit too much fun. And while I sit here concocting matzoh stuffing for my sedar dinner, I can’t help but reflect on what is going on around the world – and among my friends – that I can’t help but admire (and aspire). I love everything about this holiday — one of hope, and renewal – but, just as importantly, pastel-dyed-eggs, great expanses of adorable little chocolates, and, obviously — most importantly — frilly pink dresses. Many of these are habits I can adapt without turning my back on my own week-long traditions, and along these lines is  Yves Saint Laurent...
