5 Items In Your Closet You Definitely Don’t Need

We all get a little attached to our belongings. In most cases, the stuff we own is either a gift from a loved one or something we spent money on. Getting rid of an item can feel like a betrayal, either to your own wallet or to your generous friend. However, when it comes to your wardrobe, owning too many clothes can be a huge hassle. An overstuffed wardrobe can make each morning a dragged-out disaster as you search for a top and bottom that fit well, coordinate well, and will keep you comfortable throughout the day. Luckily, purging a closet can be simple if you know where to start. If you've been avoiding the chore of closet re-organizing, read on. Here are five items of clothing you can donate or discard immediately without feeling guilty: 1. That Old Halloween or Party Costumes ...

Kate Hudson Celebrates 4th of July by Singing in Her Pajamas

Actress Kate Hudson was "feeling seriously patriotic" on Saturday when she posted a video of herself belting out the national anthem to Instagram. The Almost Famous actress, who will be seen singing in the upcoming rock'n'roll comedy Rock the Casbah, sang the ending of the "Star Spangled Banner" as another person, heard off-screen, recorded her. Since the star was at home, she stayed comfortable in a "Talk to the Hamsa" t-shirt and a pair of floral pajama pants while rocking a set of red-framed sunglasses. The Hamsa on her shirt is a Middle Eastern and North African symbol in the shape of a hand, known for warding the wearer from the evil eye.

Lumbersexuals Causing Disposable Razor Industry to Decline For the First Time in 100 Years

As pop culture trades the slick, put-together metrosexual for the rough-and-tumble lumbersexual, more and more men are growing out their beards rather than spending the 10 minutes it takes to shave. Consequentially, the disposable razor industry is declining for the first time ever in its century-long history. Now, the disposable razor industry is doing all it can to shave off these declining profits and put new, re-designed razors back in men's hands. However, if beards are fashionably in, will it matter to men if the disposable razor is all new and improved? Recently, Gillette released the new FlexBall in the United Kingdom. The new, men's razor, which took Gillette five years to develop, has two pivots that allow all five of its blades to swivel and effortlessly glide across the surfa...

Why Men Just Can’t Stay Away From Camouflage

Going far beyond a fad, fashionably macho camouflage prints and patterns have become a new must-have in menswear that shows no signs of retreating. Fashion designer Mark McNairy places camouflage prints in the same category of menswear as khaki twill and blue oxford shirting. "To me, it’s just become a given," McNairy said. "It’s a staple." While other fashion designers aren't so quick to embrace the military pattern quite as enthusiastically as McNairy, it seems that camouflage has become bulletproof as far as modern menswear is concerned. Camouflage has been seen up and down the runways, from the likes of noted designers such as Dries Van Noten, Valentino, Kenzo, and Comme des Garçons. The distinct print has become standard street fashion since the Americana heritage trend began a few ...

How to Make Your Skin Glow in the New Year

The new year is upon us and that means people have made their New Year's resolutions. For those who were less than happy with the way their skin looked for most of 2014, making skin care a priority in 2015 is an easy choice. While it's tempting to test out the various skin care fads that continually go in and out of style, no skin regimen, no matter how promising it sounds, can help if a person isn't taking care of their body. One of the best ways to do this is by sticking to a skin-healthy diet. “Skin reflects what’s going on in your body, so a well-balanced diet is essential,” says Linda Wang, Founder, Karuna Face Masks. “Avoid processed foods loaded with chemicals and sugar. They can spike insulin levels, which can lead to increased oil production, clogged pores and premature aging. D...

Metallic Temporary Tattoos This Year’s Latest Trend

As the holidays roll around, new trends in fashion and accessories start to emerge. TV commercials, newspaper ads and online gift lists reveal the presents that everyone is dying to have that season. This year, one of the more surprising trends topping off people's wish lists are temporary metallic tattoos. At first glance these adornments are a bit misleading -- shiny detailed strands wrapped around a person's neck or wrist that stay firmly in place no matter how they move. It's hard to take your eyes off them, and many curious passers-by can't help but inquire about these strange pieces of "jewelry" to those who are already rocking them on their arms or necks. "Be ready to explain what it is because people are very intrigued and confused about how it is worn and stays on the skin a...
