Life Beyond Lipgloss – 05/03/13

Hooray for Friday! This week at wht we took a look at L’Oreal’s Visible Lift Color Blush, swooned over Too Faced’s Air Buffed BB Creme and talked about our favorite perfumes past and future. But life is about more than beauty products, here are a few links that made us happy this week:

It’s prom season! Even though I’m well past my prom-going days, I still love to see the kids in their gowns and heels flooding my Facebook stream. Even better, I love seeing celebs – like Ellen DeGeneres at her 1976 prom above – looking dated in pictures of proms gone by. If you do too, Flavorwire has a collection of amazing photos you don’t want to miss: Awesome Photos of Cultural Icons at Prom

I guess it’s only fair to share my own prom photo with all of you. To get a glimpse of Stef and I in our 80’s glory (plus a peak at a few wht writers), check out this classic post: Weekly love list – Prom

Of course, I can’t let this post go by without at least one mention of Mad Men. While Jon Hamm is mostly known as the smoldering, serious Don Draper, he actually has a long history in Hollywood’s fabled comedy scene. Vulture has a great look at his comedic background and incredible circle of very funny friends: How Jon Hamm Became America’s Sexiest Comedy Nerd

Finally, here’s a little bit of fun for your Friday afternoon. Type your favorite website or story into Gizoogle.net and see its translation into street slang. Here’s what G does with our trusty disclosure:

Readers – what were you peeping on the web this week?

      Ok, now that is one fabulous blurb @lipglossandspandex! And how addictive is that site? You just want to keep looking up all of your fave sites!
      By the way, ladies – make sure you type in .net and not .com (or just click on the orange text link in the post above) – Gizoogle with the .com seems to be a slightly scary dating site!
