Guess This Mess: Eat Edition

Posted by on August 5, 2011 | 5 comments

Ladies FYI Victoria Beckham née Adams aka Posh Spice is the only woman in the world with clearance from the aliens to perpetrate their look and make it work.

And by “make it work”, I’m talking to you LeAnn. No matter how skinny you get, or how you manipulate those bolt-ons, or how many diamond rings you buy yourself, your husband‘s fidelity is up for grabs – as demonstrated by his cheating ways, as perpetrated with you!

Guilt mixed with insecurity – it’s a helluva drug. And I for one believe that THIS IS NOT THE LOOK. Please drop the Jack Skellington look and eat something like a heaping bowl of self confidence!

Liberate Your Crazy Bitch!

From our sisters in bitchery:

We know that when you are feeling good you make the world a better place. So take a moment to have a cup of tea and a laugh with assurance that this formula was created with the greater good in mind, and remember… you really only want to unleash your inner Crazy Bitch when you need her!

Our Master Tea Blender and sister Crazy Bitch, Lynn Higgin, has created this special formula to assist you in maintaining balance and reclaiming your divine feminine power. Blended with love and acceptance, the ingredients included in this tea were specifically chosen to gently maintain your body’s natural balance, particularly when taken at regular intervals.”

This crazy bitch strongly recommends taking two, and not calling anyone till’ morning…but seriously any love potion brewed with helpful and caring intent sings of independence worth celebrating to me!

Help celebrate this Albuquerque based New Mexico business by casting your VOTE for them in the nationwide Independence Day contest by Entrepreneur Magazine showcasing independent business owners!!!

Go New Mexico – and calm that crazy bitch in all of us!

These Are Not 1987’s Feathers

Posted by on July 1, 2011 | Comments Off on These Are Not 1987’s Feathers

From just post-embryonic starlets like Selena Gomez and Lucy Hale (left) to sexy crooners like the impeccable Miranda Lambert (right) the either love-it or hate-it trend of feather hair extensions is all the rage…

Lindsay Lohan style hay bail extensions and X-tina’s skunk hair highlights can take a seat unless you’re a die-hard devotee to these recently bygone trends…the new look, or as professionals would say “points of interest”, points to feather extensions…

Mind you this is coming from a woman who gets BOTH long-wear color for her denim AND a quick pedicured “look” from a can of aerosol cooking spray…who, to quote Sherri Shepperd, “and also too” does hack at her own hair between the few and far so salon visits…which by-the-way is really frowned upon by said professionals…

Anywho I think it does look pretty, maybe especially for a specific event like la lovely Miranda did it for the season finale of The Voice earlier this week…and seems like a good option when you get that urge that we all do…hi jackie…to just do SOMETHING different.

Not sure on the specifics or permanence but I do happen to know the local feather hoarders of the finest materials and know-how west of the Mississippi (or anywhere for that matter) right here in the Q.

Our favorite star friendly, stand alone facility of tranquility, Salon Phoenix has the answers to ALL your feathering needs…

So please go out & git’ em because this like the aforementioned and most other trends I’m afraid or unable to try ’em myself!!

12 Days of Jackie

Posted by on December 3, 2010 | 5 comments

Resident Radio Gal Jackie James has the FEVER! Hair fever that is…

And you know how that goes…Guys and dolls alike are affected across the board and entire households may rise or fall depending on how the tresses lay.

There is no cure for the fever and Ms. James (really Mrs. Tony) will not get a moments rest, nor will Tony until the fever is quenched.

Now before she hauls off and dyes, curls, straightens, chops or crops we owe it to her and everyone who will surely be affected by this important decision to VOTE on it.

Jacks put it out over the airwaves that she wants herself a bob, which I just have to say is THE GREATEST haircut of all time – that being said I should also disclose that I’ve been banned by my better half from ever having one ever again, but I digress…

Above are some choices of famous cuts and colors as applied to Jackie’s pretty face. I’m sure whichever way she goes, she’ll have professional help and be in good hands.

But just for fun’s sake let’s put it to a VOTE!

Peruse your choices above and chuck-in your two to ten cents below!

And the winner is…

Absolutely Superfluous: Et tu Kim K. Edition

Posted by on October 4, 2010 | Comments Off on Absolutely Superfluous: Et tu Kim K. Edition

“She USED to be an extremely beautiful woman. But she’s running a race that no one can beat .. aging.” – angelleindisguise196

The comment above is not about Kim K., but(t) it may soon apply – Kim is only ’bout to be 30 years old and me thinks the naturally gorgeous Armenian may be experimenting with facial sculpture.

What do you think? Is she messing around with mother nature or is that just a butt load of bronzer and whacked-out fur lash appliqué gone wild?

At least ‘Cilla and Rourke started fighting their battles later in life. AngelleinDisguise is quoted from her comment left on the awesomeness that is the Mistress of Morph’s channel where you can find gems like these!

Beauty on the Cheap: Summer Edition

Posted by on July 15, 2010 | 2 comments

The really simple Rx for the cheapest in Summertime beauty are these few items:

The obvious and ~plentiful yet sometimes so hard to choke down aqua is a must. Dehydration leads to ugly things like dry skin, chapped lips, brittle hair and constipation!

Which brings us neatly ’round to our next yummy little suggestion the prune or any of the gazzilion quick and easy ways there are to get some fiber to keep r-e-g-u-l-a-r.

Because irregularity in itself is rather unappetizing and it can really weigh ya’ down, REALLY. Not to mention (except to mention) that there are many, many benefits to keeping on the regular like maintaining your weight and World Peace.

Lastly as a nod to my dermatologist who put it best when she asked, “Did you come here on the subway?”, when I announced to her that I don’t go out in the sun much. SPF, SPF, SPF! Because ICYDK w/out it you more quickly meet aging and skin cancer.

Happy hydrating, bm’ing and spf’ing! Esp. to those of you just visiting/working/filming out in our hot sunny desert for the first time. ¡Bienvenidos!

Beauty on the Cheap

Get a quick, clean toner & astringent in a pinch with your handy-dandy unflavored antiseptic mouthwash.

And instead of shelling out $9 a box for Bioré® perfect pore strips make yourself a peel-off facial mask with your 34¢ elementary school pal, white, craft glue.

When you’re done w/all that you’ll probably still have time for ©Sindication’s own speedy pedicure in a can…PAM – it’s not just for baking!

New Year New Don’t

Posted by on January 9, 2010 | Comments Off on New Year New Don’t

This post was going to be titled, Beauty on the Cheap: Don’t Do Do This -or- When Good Looks Go Bad: Sad Chicken Bones and Plastic Hairs Edition

The two reality show darlings pictured above were chosen to scream at your eyes, “Step away from the makeover counter!!!!!!!!”

As conveyed to y’all in our Something dot com post we don’t wish for anyone to succumb to New Year blues and the pressure of making drastic changes, esp. based on glamorized starvation or overpriced glue-on hair.

¿Que Paso Aqui? – When Good Looks Go Bad

Posted by on December 4, 2009 | 2 comments

The two chicks pictured above are one-in-the-same. On the left is a grieving fiancé circa 2001, on the right is the purported loosey-goosey Rachel Uchitel who’s at the center of the 3-4-5 ring circus known as Tigergate 2009.

The evolution points out to me that perhaps the equation of aqua line nose, trout pout and boob sacks equals nothing good. I myself was accused of taking on some unappealing character traits back when I had the bump in my nose shaved away into an aqua line of my own – thank goodness I stopped there.

Know when to say when people – It’s a slippery slope. One day you’re getting a diviated septum repaired the next you’re plumping lips and chesticles, before you know it you’re an athlete whoring, home-wrecking, allreding mess.

It may well start with Couture. If somebody wasn’t so concerned about slapping on this raggedy, cheese-cloth mess, hot of the runways, she might would’ve kept her wits about her instead of letting the biggest social/security fubar in White House history go down on her watch.

Lesson Learned: “Beauty fades, dumb is forever.” – Judge Judith Sheindlin

Health, Home & Fashion On the Cheap

Posted by on October 22, 2009 | 2 comments

Eats – The Euros call us Ugly Americans for a reason. It’s probably not so much visual as culpable. The diet on the cheap tip o’ the day is the simple, extremely inconvenient truth that we need to eat right. Above is our personal favorite diet/lifestyle tool.

If we can get it square on the little round plate with whole grains, some veg, protein, and good dairy, we feel better, look better and most importantly when we do indulge in that chocolate cupcake, carne adovado burrito, and/or cheesy pizza pie, the little plate is still all it takes.

Clean – Essential oils indeed. You can use ’em for almost EVERYTHING. Air freshener, cleansers, furniture polish. They run from between $3-$7 at your local granola store or herbal vitamin depot. Just a few drops in good ol’ H20 make all of the non-toxic potions above that last and last.

Pam – Not just for pedicures anymore. ©Sindication proudly presents – Butter Jeans™. Whether you waste your money splurge on $200 denim or get the $8 clearance jeans from the junior section at Wal-Mart, you can keep the color in your pants (punny) with grandma’s cooking spray.

A light oil spray, a spin in the dryer, followed with laundering in mild soap, like a body wash or other non degreasing cleaners will keep your denim colored for-like-ever!


This is How You Do It

Posted by on September 20, 2009 | Comments Off on This is How You Do It

Dee Wallace

Remember when Madonna, Kenny Rogers and Mickey Rourke had their original faces? Whenever I look at Madge I can’t help but wonder, “What if? What if she wasn’t wearing the vanity mask of irreparable alteration?”

The world will never know what she would have aged like naturally – or anything even remotely organically (ironic). We’re losing the faces of some of our icons to the cut, plumped, stretched, lifted and tucked facade they aim for and they’re all starting to look alike. Poor Pricilla Queen of the Dumplings may be one of the saddest examples.

It’s so refreshing to see someone like Dee Wallace – who granted may have incredible genes and could easily partake in a little Botox or collagen, but in any case you see her and it’s like, “Hey, it’s the mom from E.T.!” Her face is still hers and I wouldn’t think it induces any cringe of, “Ugh, what did she do to herself?”

Here’s hoping our generation’s applaud-able actors and actresses keep it real so that we might recognize them for their faces. I would like to think that Sandy Bullock and Reese Witherspoon will not be indiscernible above the neck in the next 20 years.

Paltrow and Alba can go vanity mask hell for all I care, but don’t blemish my Sandy.
