Jell-O for looks only
A friend recently confessed, "I've never liked Jell-O. Come to think of it, I thought it was a really strange substance. Like, what purpose does Jell-0 serve?"
Well, her question shall be answered.
In light of the summer heat that melts makeup away, Associated Press writer Samantha Critchell came up with this tip: "Forgo lipstick or gloss, that can become a melted mess, in favor of Jell-O. Dip a cotton swab into a powder packet of cherry Jell-O and apply it to lips for a long-lasting, sweat-proof stain."
Your kisses may be sweeter, but watch out for ants.

No more fur
GUESS?, Inc., has announced that it will stop purchasing fur beginning Sept. 1, to help prevent cruelty to animals. Any of the company's clothing already in production that uses fur will be phased out of sales channels by April 2008.
