Jessica Simpson Goes Au Naturel for Mari Claire April 9, 2010

Filed under: Au Naturel,Beauty,Jessica Simpson,Marie Claire,Sans Makeup — thesiscochick @ 7:33 pm
I love makeup! On the other hand, there’s something to be said about a woman who is comfortable and beautiful sans makeup. Jessica Simpson has a new show “The Price of Beauty” that airs on VH1. She travels the world to experience the different ideas of what beauty means for different cultures. In our culture, it seems, beauty comes in the form of photo editing and heavy makeup. I certainly applaud Ms. Simpson for her bravery! It almost encourages me to do the same.

Simpson is also launching an initiative “A Beautiful Me” that “encourages young people to take a personal oath to identify their inner beauty and unique qualities, recognize their strengths and realize that they can make a difference.” Read more about Simpson and her initiative here.

Dapper: neat; trim; smart.- Curtis Stone

He’s called “The Take Home Chef” and he just might melt you with his Australian accent. Mr Curtis Stone is, in my opinion, one of the cutest celebrity chefs around. I’m sure you’ve seen him scouting out grocery store customers and offering to help shop, buy, and cook a wonderful meal on TLC. Lately I’ve also see him on Biggest Loser, Today Show, and The Celebrity Apprentice. Stone has his own line of kitchen utensils “Kitchen Solutions by Curtis Stone” and a really cute smile. He has a few cookbooks under his belt along with a number of TV appearances. My mom had a magnet on our fridge when I was growing up and I have really found it’s motto to be true, “I love a man with dish pan hands!”. Links afer the jump!

Who do you think you are? April 3, 2010

I can’t stop watching the NBC show “Who Do You Think You Are?”. It documents different celebrities’ journeys through their ancestry. Have you been watching? It’s really amazing to see the things that they can find from so long ago. So far they’ve had Sarah Jessica Parker, Lisa Kudrow, Emmitt Smith, Matthew Broderick, and this week’s episode features Brooke Shields. The stories can take you across the country or across the world.

One of Sarah Jessica Parker’s ancestors was accused and killed in the Salem Witch Trials. Lisa Kudrow’s great grandmother was murdered in the Holocaust. One of Emmitt Smith’s ancestors was a slave and a daughter of a slave owner at the same time. Matthew Broderick’s ancestors could be found fighting in The Civil War, WWI, and WWII. He even helped solve a mystery involving his great great grandfather who’s grave marked unknown in a National Cemetery in Atlanta, GA.
All of these things just make me wonder, “Who am I?” and “Where did my family come from?”. It’s something that I have always wondered about. The tips from Ancestry.com advise someone just embarking on this journey, to ask your family questions. I hope to someday answer these questions but, until then I’m going to sit back and watch “Who Do You Think You Are?” on NBC. It comes on every Friday night at 7:00 PM (CST).
I’ve included a panel of clips and episodes from Hulu.com. Enjoy!
