Magazine Clips of the Month: September Edition

Lauren Conrad

I keep a teeny leather book full of my (favorite) magazine clippings.  I’m a magazine FREAK by the way.  I love them so much. I can’t throw them away. They are sitting in a triumphant pile near my bed.  I like them thick. I like them juicy. I like them without cover stories dedicated to Vanessa Hudgens.

Regardless, I thought it would be fun to start a small column on my blog fulfilled with “knock off snippets” or my original leather book.  Ok, so here goes. First page.

Dial Up Date Advice: iphone apps that make you skinny!

Soleil Organics ($1) : iphone, motorola droid [It will drag you to your cheapest (most worth it) organic buy!]

Good Food Near You (FREE!) : iphone, Blackberry [It will pinpoint your location and point you in the direction of a healthy food place of your dreams!]

Locavore ($3) : iphone [Pinpoints your location and directs you to local farmers markets with in-season vegis and fruits. Bon apetite folks.

New Hairdo to try: Try the bedhead updo. Crawl out of bed, spray some dry shampoo on those roots and throw it together.

Vanessa Hudgens

I know, I hate myself too for using this picture.

If you’re in college, if you want some great treats: buy Weight Watchers Cheese Wheels & Jello-O Mouse (60 decadent calories a pop).

Jennifer Lopez

I look like this every morning.

Rawr Lopez. Rawr.

“Glamour is profound. Glamour is saying: I want to be as beautiful as I can be-to myself first and then to anyone else who has enough sense to see it.” ~Maya Angelou (author)

Tips from the Queen of Confidence (Queen Latifah, duhskies).

A cheap radiance booster: “Mix baking soda with water and use it on your face as an exfoliator. My grandmother always gave me that tip.”

No more greasy eyelids! “I dip my brush in a little water before apply shadow. It lasts longer.”

Do less, look amazing. “I don’t like it when women wear too much makeup – it should be natural. And this is coming from someone with her own makeup line.”

To prevent fried ends: “I condition my hair in the shower at night and rinse it in the morning.”

Her get-ahead advice: “Be fair. It’s not good to be a nasty person. People remember that.”

[All clippings obtained from Glamour, In Style, Cosmopolitan and SELF Magazine]
