Do you find yourself ‘pinning’ your life away? If you’re completely addicted to Pinterest, like we are, you HAVE to check out this new Facebook app. Glimpse by TheFind has teamed with Microsoft Internet Explorer to launch the latest in online shopping. It is giving Pinterest a serious run for their money. Glimpse is similar to Pinterest in the sense that you have all your ‘likes’ in one place. However, there’s a catch!
Like Pinterest, you pick your favorite products and ‘like’ them to create your own personalized catalogue. You are also able to see what your friends are ‘liking’. Glimpse will send you notifications when your favorite ‘likes’ are on sale! Does shopping smart get any easier than that?

Happy National Nutrition Month! Half of the battle when it comes to healthy eating and nutrition is simply knowing which questions to ask in finding solutions that fit your personal needs and lifestyle. Have you ever found yourself standing in an aisle at the grocery store, facing countless choices and wondering where to start? Where’s a handy FAQ Section when you need one? With so much information (and misinformation) out there, doing your health homework means sifting through all of it to find the most informed and reliable sources of advice.
How do I really know how many calories to eat?
Is there a danger in consuming too many Omega 3s?
What’s the best thing to eat after my hard workout?
Does drinking out of a straw really make me bloated?
Everyone will have an answer to these questions– your personal trainer, the nutrition-related infomercial you saw on TV, your fitness-magazine-reading best friend. Remember that nutrition is a health science, which requires years of study and experience to achieve true expertise. And despite the information you receive from its many sources (chefs, writers, food bloggers, doctors, nutritionists) sometimes what you really need is to go straight to a nutrition expert, a Registered Dietitian. Registered Dietitians (RD) are nutritionists, but not all professionals operating under the title nutritionist are RDs, who meet the gold-standard in professional nutrition.
Submit your question for me at the Access Hollywood Live facebook page and check out their blog updates every Thursday!

Hollywood’s “Night of Nights” is right around the corner, and while we don’t know who will take home the oh-so-coveted Oscar Awards, we do know that all you beauty junkies out there will be mentally casting your vote for Oscar superlatives – who has the best dress, the best accessories and of course… who has the best hair?
We spoke with the pros at Wella Professionals, the hair brand who has a very impressive roster of red carpet hair under their belt already from this season, including Madonna, Michelle Williams, Claire Danes, Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, Emily Blunt and Shailene Woodley, to get the inside scoop on what hair looks will heat up the red carpet this Sunday.
“We will see a peak in fluid textures and warm tones that suggest effortless elegance and healthy, shiny hair that shows a lot of movement and bounce,” states Wella Professionals Color Ambassador Aura Friedman. “Expensive and Luxurious are words you could use to explain this look – maximize this effect by asking your colorist to use Wella Professionals Haircolor to give you a soft shade with warm undertones that will best complement your skin tone.”
Aura recommends her A-list clientele use Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner, which is designed to seal in color while leaving locks irresistibly smooth to the touch.
“Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier is a red-carpet favorite,” adds Celebrity Stylist Andy LeCompte, “that smoothes the hair surface so it can better prepare the hair for styling.” Andy also uses Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight Shine Spray on his clientele to create the most sheen and expensive looking finish to any end look.
LeCompte predicts that celebs will lean toward classic styles with a play on texture and symmetry. “There will be a lot of deep side parts and loose ponys, bobs and chignons tied to the side.” This style can be customized to accentuate any gown, face shape or hair accessory. “It also lessens the stuffiness of that prom feeling and adds a more up-to-date, laissez-faire feeling.
The options here are endless, but no matter the look, you can use Wella Professionals products to perfect the end look. Apply 3-5 pumps of Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier hair primer to create an even surface on each and every hair follicle before drying the hair, creating a foundation for the most luxurious looking end-look. To keep a style looking fresh yet modernly undone, use a light-hold hairspray such as Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to hold the hair while keeping an overall sense of liquid movement.
The red carpet arrivals of the 84th Annual Academy Awards®, will be airing February 26th on NBC. Be sure to join Wella Professionals on Twitter and Facebook LIVE during the red carpet arrivals (between 4pm and 7pm EST), along with their special guest panel of hair pros Aura Friedman, Rick Wellman and Mark Garrison to get tips, tricks and commentary on the hair looks of the evening.
Can’t wait till then? Visit the red carpet tab on Wella’s Facebook page for tips and leave questions for their experts to answer.

Remember those silly virtual gifts that you could send to your friends via Facebook? Well, these online gifts are about to get real. If you spend a lot of time on Facebook (of which I admit I am guilty, and not just because I work with social media) you can’t help but notice the new application that is causing a sensation called Bartab. Officially launched only a month ago, the application allows users to buy vouchers good for real drinks—cocktails, beer, wine, you name it!—for friends from both Facebook and their cell phones. The best part is that the drinks cost the sender and recipient only $1 apiece. All your friend has to do is show the bartender the voucher from a cell phone and pay the $1 to collect the drink. Currently available in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, the service plans to keep expanding nationally with bars in Washington DC, Chicago, and more getting in on the action. So, instead of sending your friend a pixilated pint from Facebook, purchase them the real thing. I promise they’ll be more than happy to accept! —Kate Bryan
