Notable Reads of the Week, vol. 4

For a great cause...

Raising the Roof
Long-term Solutions for Canada's Homeless

The 2013 Toque campaign is underway!

2013 marks the 16th Annual Toque Campaign!  That’s a lot of individuals, community groups, agencies, businesses and the media who have supported this signature, national campaign which has raised over $3.5 million for local, Partner Agencies working towards long-term solutions to homelessness.  Canadians just like you who believe that together we can make a difference, one toque at a time.

What caught my attention this week...

Rise in use of dangerous' tanning injections
"The perfect tan in a bottle, but at what cost? The increasingly popular self-injecting "Barbie doll drug" Melanotan II is unregulated and, say doctors, could be dangerous."
I didn't even know this existed!

17 Bad Skin Habits: The skin sins to leave behind.
By Allure Magazine. We should all know this!

Traits to look for in a Doctor
By Women's Health. Such great information. Many people are intimidated by health professionals when they should not.

Balmain Miami Vice look
For those of you who are too young to remember this pop culture phenomenon, well, have fun! I think I will pass on the bold prints myself.

Lanvin's scented hommage
One word, Arpège.

12 Best (& worst)...
By The Man Repeller. A fun look back at some of the years events.

Art & makeup???
Vincent Beaurin pour Dior
I have no words for this. I understand the reputations of both the artist and Dior but the price for this is, well, a little over the top. I see no justifications for it.

Non beauty related but still enjoyable...

In light of last week's milestone could this be the next youtube record holder? Move over Gangnam Style... The One Pound Fish Man is here!
