Viral Wedding Photo Of A Marine Praying With His Soon-To-Be Wife Will Move You (Tue, 26 May 2015 19:58:55 -0400)

A photo of U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Caleb Earwood and his bride Maggie sharing an emotional moment before their wedding in Asheville, North Carolina this Memorial Day weekend has gone viral. One look at the powerful shot and it's easy to see why:

Photographer Dwayne Schmidt captured the moment and shared it on his business's Facebook on Saturday, calling it "one of the best things I have ever [gotten] to see, much less photograph." At the time of publication, the post had amassed more than 47,000 likes and counting.

The photo shows the couple holding hands and closing their eyes as to not catch a glimpse of each other before the ceremony. The groom is saying a prayer aloud, while his bride-to-be stands around the corner.

"It broke me down to know that we felt the same way about God," the bride told ABC News. "It just made me happy."

The soon-to-be-newlyweds weren't the only ones who were overcome with intense emotions.

"The whole room was full of emotion," Schmidt said. "I tried not to cry and focus on what I was doing."

Why Tamar Braxton's New Clothing Line Will Be Your Summer Shopping Obsession (Tue, 26 May 2015 18:07:31 -0400)

Since Tamar Braxton first stole the spotlight on WE TV's "Braxton Family Values," the 38-year-old singer has snagged a spinoff reality show and became the host of daytime talk show, "The Real." And just when we thought she couldn't fit anymore on her plate, Braxton launched an eponymous clothing collection.

tamar collection

The Tamar Collection by Tamar Braxton, which debuted earlier this year, is the star's first foray into fashion. The line's body-con dresses, fitted blazers, jumpsuits, luxe track pants, and sexy stilettos align with Braxton's high-end personal style, but thankfully lack the hefty price tags. Everything in the collection retails for under $160, so all the Tamartians (aka the devoted followers and fans) out there don't need to go broke while trying to look fly.

Tamar Braxton Collection

Ms. Braxton stopped by The Huffington Post to show us the Summer 2015 collection and chat with us about her personal style, which celebrities she'd like to see in her collection and some of her most unconventional beauty secrets.

What's your favorite look from your new collection?

It has to be the white bohemian look that I wore to the collection lunch event last night. I can't wait to put that with a pair of shorts. It's so versatile.

tamar collection

Are there any celebrities that you would love to see in your clothes?

First of all, I love Victoria Beckham. That would be amazing. J.Lo is one of my fashion icons too. Maybe [Beyoncé]. Rihanna. Everyone I look up to, fashion-wise.

Your personal style is fabulous and we know you wear a lot of designer clothes. But why did you want to make sure that your clothing collection was affordable?

Because I don't always want to spend the coins on designer clothes. Thank God most of the time I'm able to afford the things that I want. But the people that watch us on TV and listen to my music, they can't always afford that, and I want them to feel fabulous as well. I know when I put on a Versace outfit I'm like, 'Yasssss, I feel amazing!' So I want them to have that feeling when they put on the Tamar Collection. That's why I work so hard to make sure that we have quality clothing at an affordable price.

tamar collection

Are there any beauty products or tips that you live by?

I don't put a lot on my face because I'm so sensitive. Everyone things I'm crazy because after I wash my face with Dove -- it's the only soap I can use -- I ice my face.

Seriously? How does one do this?

Yes, you must. I learned that from Bette Davis. It stings but it's worth it. You cup the ice in your hands and hold it to your face for as long as you can. Sometimes you drop it but you've got to pick it back up. It takes down inflammation and tightens your skin. It's amazing.

And what do you put on afterwards?


Hahaha! OK, well, how has your fashion and beauty regimen changed since becoming a mother?

I have no time for me, so my get-ready time is like 10 minutes. I have to throw on comfortable things that are still all-day wear. And I'm not just trying to say this about my line -- but it's the truth. I can throw on these vegan leather track pants, sandals, a jean jacket and kill it! I believe in two-minute outfits that are comfortable and still stylish.

This Owl Ring Bearer Is A 'Harry Potter' Fan's Dream Come True (Tue, 26 May 2015 17:56:12 -0400)

This dashing ring bearer was a real hoot.

Groom Shaun Palmer surprised his bride Adele and all of their guests by having an owl named Bilbo carry the rings down the aisle at their July 2014 wedding in Roker, Sunderland, United Kingdom. But it wasn't until the video was posted to YouTube on Friday that it began making the rounds online.

Internet folks have pointed out that this bird bears a striking resemblance to the late Hedwig of Harry Potter fame.

Credit: Kevin De-Roche

Palmer told The Huffington Post that he first came up with the idea to have an owl ring bearer after seeing it advertised at a wedding show a couple years before their nuptials and thought it would be an awesome way to surprise his bride. He said, though, that his best man Chris -- who was tasked with intercepting Bilbo at the altar -- wasn't totally on-board with the plan at first.

"I actually booked the owl before I'd even spoke to Chris, my best man," he said. "When I did phone him, I said, 'How do you feel about an owl landing on your arm to bring our wedding rings down the aisle?' He said something along the lines of 'no chance' to which I replied, 'Well, it's a bit late now -- I've booked it!'"

Credit: Kevin De-Roche

The groom told HuffPost that the owl was both "brilliant" and "so well-behaved."

After the ceremony, the handler stayed with Bilbo so the guests could meet him and take pictures.

"It gave a great bit of extra theater to the day," Palmer said.

9 Pinterest Projects I'm Officially Giving Up On (And You Should, Too) (Tue, 26 May 2015 17:38:44 -0400)

The Pinterest universe is filled with intricate hairstyles, ornate cakes, all-white bedrooms and nonchalantly beautiful people that all seem to suggest You can be this immaculately put together, too! All you need is a braid tutorial and a cookie sheet! But the line between aspirational and depressingly unattainable is often frighteningly thin.

I've been using Pinterest over the past few years, mainly as a recipe sorter, but also as a destination for pretty photos, inspirational home decor, haircuts I'd like to get and DIY projects I convince myself I'll actually take on at some point. It's oddly fun and mindless to scroll through my feed and sort aesthetically pleasing images into organized boards. There does come a point, though, when I reach Pinterest saturation and I end up feeling more inadequate than I felt before I had mentally promised myself I'd live such a perfect, crafty life.

Its seems only healthy to periodically do a Pinterest "life audit" of sorts, just as Arianna Huffington did with her daunting bucket list when she turned 40. Rather than wallowing in guilt about not learning German or becoming a good skier, Arianna freed herself from the weight of those unfinished tasks by simply crossing unfinished items off her to-do list.

"It was very liberating to realize that I could 'complete' a project by simply dropping it -- by eliminating it from my to-do list," she wrote. "Why carry around this unnecessary baggage?"

So instead of feeling bad about all of those lattice top pies and mermaid braids I still haven't attempted to recreate, I've decided to unload the baggage of pins that spark the I'm-such-a-failure dialogue in my brain.


1. I will never do this overly complicated twisted side braid.
What made me think I'd have the patience to weave my hair into a beautiful tornado, let alone dig through my bags to find enough bobby pins for it to stay put?

2. I will never make this crepe cake (or any crepe cake, for that matter).
Ain't nobody got time for that.

3. I will never be this chic.
Barring the unlikely event of a romance with Prince Harry, it seems likely that I will never be a British royal.

4. I will never make a terrarium in a syrup canister.
I would love to know what prompted me to think, "Ooh, let me save this activity for later!" There is no later for me and a decorative plant encased in a condiment container.

5. I will never be able to do cool, '60s-inspired cat eyeliner with glitter.
One eye always comes out poorly, and my glitter skills are sorely lacking. C'est la vie -- you can't be good at everything.

6. I will never have a "Godfather II"-era Al Pacino as my boyfriend.
The world is a cruel and unusual place.

7. I will never make my own lipstick.
The 87,000 colors available at Sephora will have to do.

8. I will never be a minimalist pixie dream girl.
Seriously, how does one not spill coffee in an all-white bed while tousling hair and thumbing through a magazine?

9. I will never repurpose wine crates to make kitsch storage units.
I'm pretty OK with that, actually.

Sorry not sorry, Pinterest.

Kaley Cuoco Goes From Pink To Pinker With Bold Eyebrows (Tue, 26 May 2015 17:15:43 -0400)

Kaley Cuoco took the pinkness up a notch at a recent photo shoot by bringing her eyebrows into the mix.

The "Big Bang Theory" actress shared some behind-the-scenes photos from a shoot with hairstylist Jen Atkin and photographer Mike Rosenthal for hairstyling site Mane Addicts Monday. In the snapshots, Cuoco rocks bright pink eyebrows. The color is a bit bolder than the cotton candy hue she dyed her hair back in April.

Cuoco loved experimenting with pink tresses and her husband, Ryan Sweeting, approved, too.

“Ryan loved my pink hair,” she told People magazine. “He’s really cute about that. He’s one of those people who is like, ‘You’re beautiful every which way.’ But he loved the pink. Every time he looked at me, he was like, ‘Oh, it’s like I got a new wifey in town!'”

The Men's Fashion And Grooming Products That Women Just Can't Help But Borrow (Tue, 26 May 2015 17:11:46 -0400)

mens fashion

Despite the fact that we ladies have filled our closets and cosmetic bags to capacity, we still grab clothes and products from the men in our lives.

Kim Kardashian Has A Marilyn Moment In Vogue Brasil (Tue, 26 May 2015 16:47:40 -0400)

A platinum Kim Kardashian channeled Marilyn Monroe for the June issue of Vogue Brasil.

Kardashian posed for photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, and two gorgeous covers came out of it. In one, the reality star dons a black cropped turtleneck reminiscent of an outfit the Monroe wore in 1953. In the other, she lies on a leopard-print spread wearing leather gloves. A wig proved unnecessary since she was still rocking icy blond tresses at the time of the shoot.

The reality star might not be a movie star like Monroe, but she defended her own unique abilities: "I challenge anyone to try to do everything I do and then tell me whether or not I have talent."

Vogue Brasil shared both covers on Instagram Tuesday.

Efeito bombshell: melhor representante da silhueta curvilínea em ascensão nos red carpets, @kimkardashian é capa e assunto de um dossiê da edição de junho da Vogue Brasil, dedicada ao corpo. Aqui a primeira de duas capas fotografadas por @ellenvonunwerth, com edição @yasminesterea. A revista começa a chegar às bancas nesta quinta-feira (28.05) e está imperdível!

Eis a segunda capa da edição de junho, que celebra o corpo, da @VogueBrasil estrelada por @kimkardashian - símbolo da nova silhueta em alta nos red carpets. A ideia do ensaio era uma espécie de Marilyn Monroe versão 2015. Melhor: nem precisamos usar a peruca já encomendada, pois Kim estava com os cabelos platinados na época do shoot. "Desafio qualquer um a tentar fazer tudo o que faço e depois me digam se tenho ou não talento”, diz a nossa cover girl na reportagem exclusiva de Marcelo Camacho, que desvenda a deliciosa trajetória da “mãe da selfie”. A fotografia é de @ellenvonunwerth, com edição @yasminesterea. A revista começa a chegar às bancas nesta quinta-feira (28.05). Garanta o seu exemplar!

Bikini'd Jessica Alba Is The Picture Of Summer In Shape Magazine (Tue, 26 May 2015 16:14:10 -0400)

Jessica Alba looks like the picture of summer in Shape magazine's latest issue.

The Honest Company founder and actress appears on the June 2015 cover of Shape, and in an array of bright swimsuits for the editorial. Alba, 34, admitted that "working out sucks," but she manages to stay motivated by taking classes surrounded by other people.

“I attribute my athletic body to the martial arts, gymnastics, dance and strength training I did while filming 'Dark Angel,'" she said of her action-packed TV series, which ran from 2000 to 2002. "That’s made me strong and really set the bar.”

Alba said that becoming a mother changed her self-image for the better.

“I wasn’t truly confident about my body until I had my daughters, Honor, 7, and Haven, 3," she said. "I felt more comfortable in my own skin after they were born. Plus, if I want them to be happy with their bodies, I need to walk the walk.”

Read more from Alba's interview in the June issue of Shape, on newsstands now.

Chrissy Teigen Is Beyond Stunning In Nude Shoot For DuJour (Tue, 26 May 2015 15:58:21 -0400)

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are giving us nothing but #relationshipgoals as they grace the cover of DuJour magazine's Summer 2015 issue.

Inside the pages of the magazine, the couple, who tied the knot in 2013, stun in a gorgeous photo shoot shot by legendary photographer Bruce Weber.

Teigen, who stripped down and posed completely nude in one photo (see below), opened up about the couple's plans for the future.

"We want a lot of kids. I would love to have three or four of my own, and then adopt a few. So basically I’ll be pregnant the rest of my life," she said, adding that her future pregnancies are, to some extent, what inspired her to go nude for the magazine. "You look at Kim [Kardashian] and see how women’s bodies just become so beautiful,” she said. “[The thought] of getting boobs thrills me. And John looooves pregnant women, so ..."

3 Crucial Tips Every Man Should Know About Grooming His Eyebrows (Tue, 26 May 2015 14:24:52 -0400)

When it comes to grooming, eyebrow trimming and shaping should be the least of men's worries. If anything, brows are easier to deal with than clogged pores, beards and dry skin. Consider eyebrows to be like tailored suits: the smallest alterations can make a huge (and more handsome) difference.

But many men are at a loss when it comes to brows, so it's a good thing groomer, makeup artist and Dove Men Care's ambassador Karen Lynn Accattato has a no-excuse guide to shaping their own eyebrows. Accattato's worked with the likes of President Barack Obama and the stars of FOX's hit television show "Empire," so it's safe to say that she knows what she's talking about.

Here are her tips on cleaning up those unruly brows.

TIP #1: Don't wax!
Waxing "gives you a very manicured, very strong line," Accattato says. The practice can also cause damage over time as the wax breaks down the collagen near the eye area.

TIP #2: Scissors, trimmers and combs are your friends.
Accattato suggests using a comb and trimmer to remove extra hairs. Using a combination of both tools will result in a less rigid and more natural brow finish. Check out Accattato's two-step tutorial below to see how it's done.

Step One:Use a comb to brush hairs upwards, like this:
mens brow brush

Step Two: Use small trimming scissors to trim the stray hairs. Then brush the hairs back into place:
mens brow trim

GIFs: Tiara Chiaramonte, Model: Ethan Fedida

TIP #3: Pluck hairs below the arch, not above.
Location is key when using tweezers or the threading method, since it's easy to over-pluck your eyebrows. Accattato recommends plucking below the brow, not on top, so that the arch maintains its shape.

Nat Wolff On His 'Talented' Co-Star Cara Delevingne: 'She's Not An Airhead Model' (Tue, 26 May 2015 14:10:26 -0400)

Nat Wolff is best known for his film roles, and Charli XCX has made a name for herself by giving an edge to her pop tunes. Together, the duo is going vintage with a ‘60s-themed Teen Vogue cover with a bit of a twist.

As the magazine’s joint cover stars for its June/July issue, Nat and Charli opened up to their interviewers who also happen to be pretty famous. Since Nat is starring in "Paper Towns," one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, it only made sense for John Green, the author behind the book-turned-movie (and Nat’s friend), to interview him. Their interview revealed what it was like on the "Paper Towns" set and Nat’s admiration for co-star (and supermodel) Cara Delevingne.

As for Charli, a fellow artist got the scoop on her rise to fame. Before Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff hits the road with Charli for their upcoming tour, he learned more about her touring experience with Katy Perry, haters on the Internet and the exact moment she decided to stop worrying about what other people think.

Teen Vogue’s June/July issue hits stands on June 2. Scroll down for photos of Nat and Charli and head over to for more.

Charli XCX on touring with Katy Perry...
"I felt comfortable and at home, which was really nice. I've never opened for a superpop-tastic artist before. It's amazing to see the props and the amount of production she had. She's in the air, then on a horse, and then she's dancing, and the whole thing is mental."

On reading about herself on the Internet...
"It used to stress me out when I was younger, because I would take everything really, really personally. But, to be honest, I don't read it too much anymore. No, it doesn't really bother me. My assistant sends me screen grabs of, like, really funny Daily Mail clips when they write about me, and there's always hideous and hilarious comments."

On the exact moment she decided to quit caring about what other people thought of her...
"At the end of 2014, I had this moment where I began to genuinely not worry about what people think of me. I would always say I didn't care in interviews, but I never really meant it. Then I wrote 'Sucker,' and I knew I wanted to make a pop record on my own terms and take risks with it."

Nat Wolff on working with Cara Delevingne...
"It was great being involved in the casting process, which, honestly, I hated it in the beginning because I hate auditioning. I know how awful it is for actors. Cara came in, and I was the only person in the entire world who hadn't heard of her. And then she blew me away. She's the only one who made me feel nervous, because she's such a spontaneous actress."

On people underestimating Cara...
"People think, 'She's so hot and so rich -- how can she be talented?' She's not an airhead model. She is so talented."

On the rest of the "Paper Towns" cast...
"Weirdly, with this movie, everybody ended up being similar to their characters and somehow got close. We decided to all call each other by our character's name, which is kind of hokey. The boys had three separate apartments and we stayed in one together every single night. It was so dorky. We liked each other. Movie sets are romantic in that way -- you almost delude yourself into believing that the world outside doesn't exist. We all became so close that we became each other's worlds. Everybody says on every movie that they 'became a family,' and it's bullsh*t 95 percent of the time. But we became a family."

Birkenstocks, Tye-Dye Shirts And 16 Other Things You Probably Owned If You Went To Sleepaway Camp (Tue, 26 May 2015 13:44:37 -0400)

tye dye camp

If you went to sleepaway camp, you know a few things to be true. First, there's no place like camp. Second, there are no friends like camp friends and third, there are certain things (namely, clothing and beauty products) that are considered essentials for any camper.

The items have varied through the years, but anyone who shipped off to camp for eight glorious weeks summer after summer can tell you that some variation of these items always had a place in the bunk, and in our hearts.

Check out 18 summer camp staples below, and excuse us while we spend the rest of the day in sweatpants, socks and Birkenstocks.

1. Soffe shorts.


In every single color and rolled over at least once.

2. Birkenstocks.


Before they were "cool," you were wearing them to breakfast at the mess hall. Bonus points for wearing 'em with socks.

3. White Hanes T-shirts.

With your initials in the tags. In fact, everything had your initials on the tag.

4. A surplus of camp shirts from previous years.

For intercamp games, cutting into crop-tops and sewing into pillows.

5. Speedo tank suits.

Because no one was going to instructional swim in a two-piece.

6. Bar/Bat Mitzvah garb.

Boxers, sweatpants, T-shirts. After that fateful 8th grade year, your pajama drawer was basically taken over by Bar/Bat Mitzvah swag.

7. Sweatbands.


For inter-camp games, and when you wanted to look "athletic."

8. T-shirts in your camp colors.

color war

For color war, duh.

9. One nice outfit.

For Visiting Day ... and banquet.

10. Shower shoes.

Because ew.

11. Those Adidas sandals.


You know the ones.

12. Denim shorts.

For trip days only.

13. Hair gel.


For the curly-haired girls, nothing beat summertime frizz like gelled hair. The crunchier, the better.

14. Hardtail pants.

hard tails

A.K.A. the most comfortable pants of all time.

Lilly Pulitzer Under Fire For Fat-Shaming Cartoons In Its Headquarters (Tue, 26 May 2015 13:35:08 -0400)

New York Magazine published a photo tour of Lilly Pulitzer's headquarters on Tuesday, and it includes the bright colors, tropical vibes and well-dressed employees you'd expect from the brand.

There's one thing in the office, however, that come as quite a surprise: fat-shaming cartoons on the walls.

Two images of a woman are hung on a wall next to a bikini top and a sign that says "I'm just saying." The captions read, "Just another day of fat, white and hideous... You should probably just kill yourself," and "Put it down, carb face."

Jane Schoenborn, Vice President of Creative Communications, addressed the cartoons in an email to The Huffington Post. “These illustrations were the work of one individual and were posted in her personal work area," she wrote. "While we are an employer that does encourage people to decorate their own space, we are a female-dominated company and these images do not reflect our values. We apologize for any harm this may have caused."

An updated version of the magazine's feature includes a caption that reads, "This image shows an employee's personal illustrations at her cubicle." But regardless of the drawings' origins or whether or not they are meant as a joke, the fact that these fat-shaming images are not only on display, but highlighted in the article, is disconcerting to say the least.

The cartoons have become public just after the brand's recent collaboration with Target was criticized for failing to include extended sizing in stores. Plus-size options were available online only.

Tinted moisturizer is a must-have addition to your summer beauty bag because it satisfies multiple needs at once.

For starters, the product offers light-to-medium coverage to even out minor blemishes and redness. It's also surprisingly hydrating and healthy for the skin thanks to a combination of antioxidants, botanical extracts and vitamins like algae, vitamins C and E. Plus, many tinted moisturizers also contain sunscreen for added protection against UV rays. What more could you want from a moisturizer during the summer?

According to the professionals, using tinted moisturizer is all about skin preparation and makeup application. If you have extremely dry skin, Mark celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg suggests using heavier face creams at night, so that you wake up totally hydrated and with a smooth base to wear your tinted moisturizer.

For individuals battling hyperpigmentation, acne or age spots, celebrity makeup artist Tia Dantzler advises applying concealer after you put on your tinted moisturizer for a brightening effect. A Kabuki brush will help you to achieve airbrushed-looking skin.
