Beauty Buzz: Work Those Toes

I'm sure you guys have heard about YogaToes, and if you're like me, you've probably been wondering "what the€¦..?" I've had this strange fascination with them where they make me simultaneously scared and curious, wondering what are these strange jelly-like contraptions that look like they should be used for a pedicure? So I ordered myself a pair to see what they were all about. The idea is that it's like exercise for your toes so you prevent situations like hammertoes and bunions. No, I don't have either, but I do find myself in stiletto heels more often than not and thought a little exercise for my footsies couldn't hurt. The verdict: they are fabulous! They work your toes so they just end up looking healthier, just like they say, exercise for your toes, except you don't have to do anything! Anyone else use them? If so, let me know in comments!

Tech Style: Tony Hawk Takes Over Your T-Mobile Sidekick!

Tony Hawk has teamed up with T-Mobile to put out a limited edition Sidekick! The Sidekick LX„¢ Tony Hawk Edition is black, textured to feel like a skateboard and has a gaggle of new, fabulous features like video record, play and share. Lucky us, we got to fiddle with it at the opening match of the Mercedes Benz Polo Challenge held in Bridgehampton, where T-Mobile holds court every year with the most fun tent going in the VIP area. This year, they treated us to tunes spun by the one-and-only, DJ Sky Nellor. But back to the Sidekick-- it still has its signature Sidekick swivel screen and full keyboard, but we love the badass feel that only someone like Tony Hawk can provide. It's the perfect accessory to give all your outfits an extra edge, but more importantly it's the phone that will withstand all the damage you KNOW you are going to inflict on it! Look for it on www.sidekick.com and tell me what you think!

Healthy Style: 5 Non-Icky Sunblocks Help You Get Your Summer On

It€™s official, summer is here, so break out the bikinis and beach bags because it is time to boogie down! Who doesn€™t love lazy days sitting poolside and long drives with the top down? But along with the sun fun, you cannot forget to protect your delicate dermis from icky UV rays. But sunblock can be a bit of a gross endeavor. Often, it€™s just too thick, and can leave every pore feeling clogged. And the so-called "easy" spray-on kind has such high alcohol content it can leave a layer of mystery film on your skin. Lucky for you, I have personally tested five products that protect your skin AND feel fabulous going on. Click SEE SLIDESHOW for my picks!

Style Poll: Should Sharon Stone Have Been Sacked By Dior?

As you are all probably aware, Sharon Stone has been dropped as the face of Dior. The A-lister was ditched after she made what was considered to be insensitive comments regarding the earthquake in China, insinuating it was some sort of karmic repercussion for the Chinese treatment of Tibet, and causing a potential Chinese boycott of Dior. Then in an interview with Cathy Horyn of The New York Times, Ms. Stone said that Dior distorted her apology, and after a call from Sidney Toledano, the chief executive of Dior, she said the following: €œI talked to Sidney and I said: €˜Let€™s get serious here. You guys know me very well. I€™m not going to apologize. I€™m certainly not going to apologize for something that isn€™t real and true €” not for face creams.€™€�
