You’d think with all the products out there to help you get thicker and healthier hair, there woud be an equal selection of products to buy to unclog your drain – but the selection is weak and believe me I’ve looked. In comes everyone’s favorite product Liquid Plumr to clear out those hairs that seem to never stop clogging your drain. I love how the Liquid Plumr promo starts off like the typical hair product ad and then shifts gears to the good looking Beau and the hair clog eliminator. It’s funny because whenever I see those hair product ads the last thing I think of is unclogging my drain, but they do go hand in hand.
I have a lot of long, thick hair and while I love it and would never cut it there’s always the not so fun side of it inevitably ending up in my drains and clogging the pipes. I don’t know about you but there’s a lot of other things I rather be doing with my time than trying to unclog my drains. I’ve personally tried it and it works like a charm – within minutes it unclogged the drain and gave me some much needed extra time to style my hair instead of playing plumber and trying to unclog it myself from my drains. So the next time you go to the store to buy shampoo, conditioner and hairspray, make sure you also pick up a bottle of Liquid-Plumr’s Hair Clog Eliminator.
*This drain cleaner is safe for all septic systems and pipes, including PVC, plastic, copper, and old pipes.

If it were up to me I would be wearing Karolina Kurkova’s outfit right now (or at least some cheaper version of it). Since I can’t exaclty fit into anything even remotely close to this right now I did the next best thing – a copycat! I love the pop of pink against the preppier pullover and button down and how she paired it with distressed jeans and chevron striped heels. It’s perfection!

I love that she went with a classic neutral coat – it really pops against the edgy outfit. See below how to get her look for less.

In the midst of a crushing, miserable winter, it’s hard to even consider summer as a theoretical possibility. Shut in behind frozen windows, staring out at an endless white wasteland, summer, the beach, skirts and shorts couldn’t seem further away. But the happy truth is that summer is coming. It hasn’t let us down yet, and it will be here sooner than you think.
Summer is right around the corner and gone will be the days of comfy sweatshirts, long pants, and layers. Soon it will be time for bare legs, uncovered arms, and gauzy fabrics. Crap, that means exercise, doesn’t it. Well, if it makes summer come quicker, it might be a fair trade-off.
Yoga is an excellent way to shake the dust off your winter muscles, and best of all, it can be done inside (maybe even in a hot, humid room) while you’re waiting for the thaw. Get in a little yoga during your winter-induced downtime, and by the time spring peeks it’s head out, you can already by flexible, warmed up, and ready for action.
If you’re in the market for some new yoga clothes, you need to consider the following: First, comfort. Yoga clothes, by their nature, must not be restrictive. They need to not just be as flexible as you are, they need to be as flexible as you are capable of becoming. Second, Yoga shirts, yoga shorts should be durable. Your joints are going to get a workout, and so are the seams on your gear. Lastly, they should be reasonably priced. Ideally, these are clothes that are going to be routinely used, they shouldn’t cost as much as a car payment.
You can’t do a better job than meeting these criteria than Sweaty Betty, where a wide variety of quality yoga shorts, jackets, leggings, and tanks await. Once you’ve gotten yourself dressed for yoga success, you’ll find it easier than ever to motivate yourself to work toward that stronger, more flexible you, that summer you, that isn’t stuck inside.
And if you just want to drink hot tea and watch TV in your yoga pants, they’re pretty comfy for that, too.

Jeans! Pretty simple, right? Blue denim, always in style and look better the more you wear them. They are the forever symbol of casual style for your legs. So why is it so hard to find the perfect pair? It turns out that when there are more options, the choices they offer can become paralyzing. And if you’re not sure on what options you’re selecting between trying to find the right pair of jeans can be complicated. So let’s do some legwork on what styles of jeans are trending right now, and consider what styles look best on you.
Skinny jeans are just what they sound like. They’re cut skinny, to fit snugly through the waist, hips and thighs, and ensure they hug your legs like a second skin. Curvy cut jeans are cut with a little more freedom in the hips and thighs, but still designed to hug the calves. Boot cut jeans are designed with a slightly flared leg, so you can wear boots with them (pretty simple stuff).
Rise refers to how high on the hips or waist the jeans ride. The most flattering is medium rise but lately we’ve also been seeing some trendy high waisted jeans and low-rise cuts. If you’re not sure what kind of rise you prefer, err toward medium rise.
Long cut jeans are most flattering on taller figures (as well as with higher heeled shoes). Boot cut jeans are also usually cut long for this reason. Cropped jeans (a summer favorite) stop mid-calf and look good with sandals or more casual shoes.
Jeans are traditionally made of cotton (denim), but frequently incorporate polyester to increase durability. Skinnier cuts of jeans incorporate spandex in order to allow for the sleekest possible profile, while still allowing for flexibility.
The “wash” of a pair of jeans represents how the jeans have been treated with dyes. Generally, the darker the wash, the darker the jeans. Jeans are also frequently “distressed” by sandblasting to create a lived-in or bohemian look. Dark denim is universally flattering and also dressier while the distressed is a laid back favorite.
By carefully considering your options, you can be sure to find what style of jeans are best for your personality, style and body type. Best of all, with stores like rue21 currently offering buy one, get one 50% off on most of their jeans, you can afford to experiment a little.
