3 Dangers You Need to Know About After a Skinned Knee

I never realized how serious a skinned knee could be until now. Last week, my little 5-year-old daughter was crossing a street along with a friend of mine when she slipped and skinned her knee. Of course, she began crying hysterically, and it was bleeding profusely, but I wasn't worried. After all, as the mother of two, I have survived what feels like hundreds of skinned knees and scraped elbows.

Cut It Out: Keeping Your Hair Young

I seem to be going on and on about hair, but it is such an important aspect of our appearance and, I think, a reflection of how we feel. So, here are just a few more tips and comments about hair that I think are important in the grand scheme of keeping our hair – and ourselves – looking young. 1.No razor cut around the ears, no ears cut out period.

I think I've reached almost every woman's version of Nirvana. I, Heather Barmore, have found the perfect combination of hair products to make me, Heather Barmore -- she who is notoriously unhappy with everything -- fairly happy with my hair. Though first I feel like I should go back to 1994 when I had grand delusions of having long flowing blonde locks.

Breaking Bad Beauty Habits: My List

As if by clockwork, the arrival of the new year inevitably makes me get all ponder-y about Many Important Issues. And by "Many Important Issues," I do, in fact, MEAN "Many Important Issues, but also trivial nonsense that matters to literally no one else but me." To wit, that list includes sundry issues, such as war, the health care debate, Taylor Swift's confounding (to me) meteoric rise to stardom, my hair and the deplorable state of my makeup bag.I will give you ONE GUESS as to which issues my mind generally wanders. ...more
