Jan 20th 2011 8:13AM This article is full of CRAP. I've been wearing Uggs as they were meant to be worn, BAREFOOT, for over 10 years now, and I have never experienced any problems with fungus or even arch pain. Sheepskin wicks moisture away, which won't happen if you wear socks. And I agree - the minute I saw that pic, I said to myself that there was no way those were authentic Uggs.
First off - don't wear fake Uggs. Make sure you are getting them from an authentic Ugg dealer. Now - If you have sweating problems and don't keep your feet clean, then you may have an issue, which you would in ANY shoe. Keep your feet clean and DRY before you put your Uggs on. Don't get the boots soaking wet so that the water goes through to your feet. If this occurs, remove and fully dry before putting them back on. And treat your feet for problems - not your shoes.
Use common sense, people. A rule of thumb - "Baby powder BAD..... Medicated foot powder GOOD!"
Oct 12th 2010 8:04PM I LOVE my curly hair and stopped being a slave to the straightener 10 years ago. All these women look the same - boring with no movement or style to their hair. Amazing that in the face of possible CANCER, they'll still opt to be sheep.
Whatever -- ruin your hair, and possibly harm your body. I'll stick with what God gave me and nurture my healthy CURLY (and yes - even sometimes frizzy) hair.
Sep 30th 2010 1:54PM they all look terrible, even the woman who for some strange reason thought she looked good. the cut of this jacket is awful and wouldn't look good on the skinniest woman out there. I agree with the person who stated that the true classic is the Burberry trench, even tho I could never afford it. But I'd rather save and invest in the true thing than buy a cheap version that makes me look like I just picked it off a bum lying in the street.

YOU shud get your head outta YOUR rear. Your husband may not tell you that your 80 lb weight gain is gross and turning him off, but I'm sure he thinks it. Smokin Hot wives dont get married and then get fat. They eat healthy and take care of their bodies all through the marriage. What a dirty trick you played on your man and obviously yourself .... you actually delude yourself into thinking that you still look "smokin hot" with 80 extra pounds. That is really pathetic. I feel sorry for your husband. With that attitude, I'm sure you'll continue to gain weight. I hope your husband can continue to keep the act up until he leaves you for someone who actually cares about him and themselves
Jul 27th 2010 6:27PM Damn - the total pettiness of some these posts really kills me. some people would kill to get away but can't afford to, and all you people do is complain about your rooms and the lack of activities that the island was supposed to provide you.
maybe if you appreciated just having the time off and weren't such sour-pusses, you could've just spent your time enjoying the free moments with your partners and/or families.
such materialism..... its sickening!!!
Jul 22nd 2010 5:50PM I'm 43 years old, so don't tell me that it's age. For 25 years, i tried to wear straight-styled cuts that did not work with the natural texture of my hair. All the brushing, layered cuts, drying and flat ironing over the years is what casued the limp and frizzy look that you're describing. You are mistreating your hair and that's why it's losing its shape, body, and form. PERIOD. It took about year for my hair to bounce back from all those years of abuse and for my true curl pattern to come back. And finding the right product to add when my hair was wet took care of the frizz. Trying to blow dry my hair CAUSED the frizz. It opens the hair cuticles, allowing more moisture in. No more dryer -- no more uncontrollable frizz.
Adding more chemicals with Brazilian straightening and then continuing the process of drying it out more by blow drying it and flat ironing is just perpetuating the madness -- just what the hair industry is hoping for. You say that you don't blow dry or flat iron, but then you claim to have had this process done. You say that you have extremely curly hair, but then you claim your hair is flat and thin. These comments don't make sense......... Or are you really just a stylist looking to push these chemicals on more curly haired women who are constantly told by the industry that their hair is nappy, unkempt, wild looking, or just plain messy?
People have a choice. But when that "choice" is about more lies that just make their hair more damaged and reliant on the expensive "fix" that they can never stop using, it seems like that "choice" isnt really a good one. Learn to treat your curly hair like curly hair, and I guarantee great and healthy results.
Jul 22nd 2010 4:38PM this isnt true. it takes away a lot, if not most of the curl and leaves a wave, if you're lucky. and the "product" doesn't just wear off. You have roots that grow out and are your natural texture so you have bumps on the top of your head that have to be ironed out - so you're of course damaging your hair all over again.
this is just like the scam of fake nails. it looks fake and ruins your natural hair. it costs a fortune. And the sad truth is, you can never stop doing this process without cutting your hair very short because the grow out looks ridiculous.
stop selling this lie.
Jul 22nd 2010 4:32PM STOP TAKING A BLOW DRYER AND FLAT IRON TO YOUR HAIR!!!!
Learn how to naturally style your curly hair and stop damaging it. That is where all that frizz is coming from -- all the heat, brushing and abuse that you are imposing on your poor porous hair. I get a little frizz on humid days, but the right product applied at the right time fixes it.
I haven't used a dryer in over 8 years. I only comb through my hair when its being conditioned in the shower, and I never straighten my hair anymore. EVER! And it looks the best it ever has. I just came from the bagel place where a woman with (guess what) pin straight hair told me that she loved my hair and would kill to have curls like mine. I get those comments at least once a week.
$1,200.00 a year for boring, flat, lifeless, and possibly badly damaged hair and/or scalp? NO THANKS!!!

I LOVE my curly hair and would never go through this process in a million years. Yeah, I have some frizz, but oil/dimethicone based products applied to soaking wet hair usually takes care of it. I get compliments on my hair almost daily and would never want to be another boring straight-haired head in the crowd --- especially at the cost of $300 every 3 months. that's just ridiculous!!! Im sorry, but I think that the author's hair looks boring, lifeless and drab in that pic. And so does most of the women's hair that I know of that had this procedure done.
instead of trying to force your hair to do something that it can't, why not learn how to maximize the look you were born with and love yourself the way you are?
Jun 18th 2010 4:46PM my answer to your question is this:
YES! I am mature enough to handle the fact that my marriage is over, so if my husband left me for another woman, so be it. It doesn't change the fact that our relationship didn't work out and I need to move on. If the woman treats my kids well, I'll be happy and I'll be glad that she has to deal with my ex, and not me.
To be so immature over a haircut is ridiculous. Get over it. The kids wanted a haircut and Sienna took her. This marriage broke up a long time ago and the mom is still acting like a child over it. She got on Twitter and exposed a family issue to the public, for goodness sakes!!!!! And yet, you have more disdain for the adult who merely took a kid for a haircut. Shows your level of maturity too.
Let it go already. This kind of behavior is only upsetting to the kids, who didn't ask to be "fought over" like a possession. If Iris was upset that Sienna MADE her cut her hair off, then there would be a problem. But all that happened here was that the mother was jealous and insecure and behaved more like a 9 year old than her daughter (who looks VERY HAPPY about her hair and her relationship with Sienna in that photo, by the way).
