Vote for Me, S'il Vous Plaît?



I'm pretty much thrilled to have been nominated for the Marie Claire Most Wanted Beauty Blogger award. It's particularly thrilling that it's Marie Claire that took notice, since they have a long record of publishing excellent women's journalism of the sort that makes me proud to have worked in women's magazines.

The Beheld is up against some seriously big names in beauty blogging, like BellaSugar, YouBeauty, Into the Gloss, and The Beauty Brains—and is the only blog run independently (that is, it's just me here, folks, no creative director or whatnot). I'd be honored if you'd take a minute to vote for The Beheld (or whomever, I'll never know!). And if you'd like you can also enter to win a gift bag chock-full of goodies, so hey, incentive!

  1. Oh, this is so funny. I don't wear makeup at all but I read your blog because your writing is thoughtful and sharp and funny, so I went to the Marie Claire site to vote for you. Just about none of the questions in their survey applied to me . . . Favorite luxury beauty brand? Most common makeup drama? Favorite nail blogger? I just clicked "Other" and wrote "None" for almost all of 'em. They will never in a gazillion years pick me for their issue, But I hope you win!

    1. Ha, I love it! And even as a makeup wearer, plenty of the questions for me were like...huh? But then again, I was genuinely glad to be casting my vote for my love of dry shampoo, so...

      In any case, thank you for taking time to vote for me!

  2. Voted! Although like Sue, I had no idea how to answer the other questions, unless I could relate them back to mascara. Mascara is a big concern of mine. Oh, it did give me a chance to plug Evan Healy a bit, because I love those facial tonics and am pushy about getting other people to try them (which will hopefully make them more available, if I can create some local demand.) Best of luck, this is far and away my favorite beauty blog!

    1. It's so funny what products we latch on to--I wear mascara but wouldn't think much about going without it, but once I discovered eyebrow pencil there was no turning back... And I hadn't heard of Evan Healy but now that I have, I'm glad!

      Thank you for voting!

  44. Liver Illnesses and the Magnificent Milk ThistleBy Michael TY. Nike Air Max 95 360 Womens last 7 years ago

    Your immune system is an incredibly complex and remarkable bodyguard. Its job is to protect all the cells in your body from cancer, viruses, bacteria, and other intruders in your environment. Basically, it wages an ongoing war against invasion. It does this by using an army of white blood cells or leukocytes. These white blood cells originate in your bone marrow and rush to the site of any infection or damaging intruder.

    There are two divisions of white blood cells phagocytes and lymphocytes. The phagocytes are like big Pac Man cells; they go around the body and eat up all foreign substances like bacteria and pollen. Think of them as the armored unit of your immune system.

    The lymphocytes are a more specialized group that attacks specific problems. Some bacteria and all viruses can hide from the phagocytes. They take cover inside the body own cells, acting like enemy troops in friendly uniforms. This situation requires action by the Special Forces, the immune commandos the lymphocytes. With names like Natural Killer cells, it easy to picture these troops waging a battle inside you against the foreign invaders that seek to disrupt and control your Jordan 7 body.

    The combat troops are armed with weapons called antibodies, the guided missiles of the immune system. Antibodies are targeted for each specific type of invader. The quartermaster for the immune system is the lymph system. This is the fluid that surrounds every cell Nike Air Max 2010 Mens in your body. The lymph system transports nutrients into the cell and moves wastes out of the cell. Unlike your circulatory system, the lymph system has no pump. It only moves through muscle movement and deep breathing. Therefore, it Nike Air Max 90 EM Womens is extremely important to get enough exercise to help promote the flow of lymph fluid. Practicing deep breathing techniques assists the lymph flow as well as increasing the amount of oxygen in your cells. This additional oxygen provides another boost to the Nike Air Max Classic BW immune system.

    In recent years, testing has shown an overall decrease in immune system function nationwide. By measuring Natural Killer cells, your body first line of defense, scientists have determined that our immune systems have dropped by 29% since 1981. The rate of decline was 10% between 1981 and 1991. It got worse from 1991 to 1997 when immune function decreased by 19%, almost doubling the loss in little over half the time. This deterioration of your defenses is pretty frightening stuff but it is reversible if you take the right steps.
    These supplements come prepared in a variety of methods. Some are powders; some are capsules; some can be made into tinctures or teas. The amounts used vary according to the product and the Air Max 90 individual. It is advisable to consult your physician and someone knowledgeable in herbs before beginning any supplement program.

  45. If you feel like your breasts are too full but you've got shapely legs, then they should become your focal point. A babydoll nightie with Nike Air Max 2010 Mens an empire waist will provide support for your top while letting you flaunt what's below.

    If you haven't yet found a comfort zone, indulge in a full length satin chemise with an a Nike Air Max 2014 Womens line cut and perhaps a flirty slit on the side. If you do not like your upper arms, look for a sheer or color coordinated short robe.

    The key is to draw attention away from what you do not like about your body, and place it where you feel like being noticed.

    2. Everyone Needs a Little Support

    The best kept secret among celebrities and those in the know has to do with the latest lingerie weapons, which can keep even the most problematic physiques in check. Best of all, innovations in fabric and design mean that the painful confinement of girdles (and other instruments of torture) are a thing of the past. Air Max 90 Look for camisoles with built in bra support and high cut briefs that offer hidden tummy panels. Women with fuller, heavier breasts should make sure to look for bras that feature wide shoulder straps. Both companies feature Nike Air Max 2011 plus sized versions of their products and are conveniently available online.
    It is wise to be cautious of patterns. Some smaller, more discreet prints may add to an outfit, but larger designs have a tendency to "clutter" or look different when they drape over problem areas you may be want to conceal. This has the unfortunate result Nike Air Max TN Mens of drawing the eye directly where you do not want it to go! If you have a personality that must express yourself with multiple colors or styles, a great way to spice up your wardrobe can come from adding on a couple of flashy, attention getting accessories. In reality, a shapeless, ill fitting piece will not define anything, either good or bad, and will make your body appear much less attractive than you would look in clothes more suited to your accurate size. It's fine to shy away from body conscious items. Lingerie pieces should be a natural reflection of your personality. If you have a conservative personality, wearing longer gowns or adding layers to your look will enhance your beauty and allow you to feel sexy without having to bare all. Should you have a more playful, flirty nature, the sky is the limit! Plus sized lingerie includes stunning camisoles with delicate embroidery, frilly boyshorts that provide excellent coverage while exuding a youthful, sexy vibe, and buttery soft satin chemises that feel utterly luxurious against the skin. It is always best to try on lingerie before you buy, in order to make sure you will have the best fit possible. But if you are in a time crunch or browsing over the internet, the best bet is to stick to your true clothing size.

    Did you know that many retailers who do not display clothing over size 12 or 14 often Nike Air Max 2012 Heels Womens have the exact same styles in larger sizes on their websites? If you spot a piece of lingerie that you just like but it isn't in stock, try to find it online.
