A Cure for the Common Curl?

Monday, December 14, 2009 | COLUMNS: Things We Love, Tips & How-Tos, Uncategorized

Shutterstock_2955331 Ever wonder why you’re never born with the hair you want? Curly girls always seem to want straighter strands, while those with straight hair constantly crave curled tresses.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Thursday, October 15, 2009 | COLUMNS: Campaigns, Things We Love, Tips & How-Tos, Uncategorized

Pink_ribbon Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States and the second leading cause of female cancer death. The American Cancer Society (ACS) expects 192,370 new cases to be diagnosed this year alone. However, for those cases detected early enough, there’s encouraging news—the disease is highly treatable, with over 2.5 million survivors living in the United States today. That’s why we, at Pür Minerals, urge you to get checked and get active in the fight against this malicious disease.

Check Yourself

While regular self-checking is always encouraged, it’s no substitute for clinical screening, which can detect the disease in its earliest (and most treatable) state. In addition the month’s numerous charity and awareness events, October is also host to National Mammography Day. On the third Friday of the month (October 16 for 2009), many radiologists provide free or discounted mammograms. To find a location near you visit the Associated College of Radiology.

Making its New York Fashion Week debut (yes, you read correctly), the couch-warming, blanket-bathrobe combo unveiled its new color and design palette, which includes exotic animal prints, tie-dye and camouflage for a triple threat of tacky. While the basic design remained largely unchanged (why mess with a winner?) the fabric got an upgrade to what the company calls its “luxury microplush”—two words that should never be paired together. Ever. Under any circumstance.

Wearing White After Labor Day

Thursday, September 03, 2009 | COLUMNS: Tips & How-Tos, Uncategorized

While it’s been long said that you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day, the origin of this fashion faux pas is shrouded in mystery. Originally intended only for dress shoes and pumps, at some point the “rule” was extended to include all white clothing. However, as newer generations of fashionistas continue to push the envelope, many are questioning the shelf life of this once summer-only color. Here’s the scoop on this white-hot topic:
