I love how candy shelves look right around Easter. Everything turns to these gorgeous pastel shades all wrapped up in tinted cellophane, and finally, it becomes acceptable to reply “strawberries and cream” when somebody asks what you’re wearing to a party.
Also, yes, that is Peep sushi. More
Here at The Gloss, we’re big fans of standout style from all over the globe. Mercedez-Benz China Fashion Week Fall 2013 is only halfway through, but there have already been so many remarkable and lovely things seen on the runways. From unique hairstyles to outfits I will most definitely try emulating come fall.

I love red lipstick. Love it. It’s my go-to makeup because when I wear it, I can just put it on with a bit of mascara and pretend I’m going for a “fresh, modern” look when in reality, I am just so very lazy.
Knowing how to make your lipstick stay on longer is extremely important. Otherwise, you will look like Adam Devine in that scene of Workaholics where he does mushrooms. You do not want this. You do not want this at all. More

Perusing the various fashion blogs, today, I noticed a lot of fashion advice that might be a tad extravagant for the average SXSW goer.

For those of you who don’t remember, the above photo is what Amanda Bynes used to look like. Remember that sweet smile and long, flowing hair?

I am a big fan of red wine. Or, rather, I am a huge fan of red wine because of what tends to accompany it when I choose to have a glass: great food, happy friends, dark chocolate, lovely memories, horrible hangovers…
Unfortunately, there are other things that come along with every sip that are much less fun than chocolate, boozy delights: red wine stains. More
In an industry that tends to employ primarily well-known, inaccessible celebrities as the face of its campaigns, airbrushing them to the point of no return and making unsubstantiated claims about their products, it is always nice to see a woman who is not famous be honored for her contributions to society in addition to having her beauty recognized.
