Every week I’m going to highlight my favorite posts from around the blogosphere, to keep you bellas up to date on what’s happening in hair, beauty, fashion and more! Happy Friday!

If you want to know the best makeup on the market, as reviewed and determined by one of the most respected beauty bloggers – check out Temptalia’s 2011 Editor’s Choice Awards. She breaks it down, from Best New Product (that’d be Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream, seen here) to Best Budget Mascara (she chose my beloved Maybelline Full n Soft! I tell you, it NEVER fails!).
Julia from All About The Pretty and I agree – Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes are a travel must! They’re cooling, soothing, and remove makeup really well. A great tip for those of you who are always on the go!
Michelle Obama looked AMAZING at the White House State Dinner, resplendent in a red Alexander McQueen gown. 55 Secret Street has the scoop.
Speaking of things that are red and beyond fabulous, the hardworking ladies of The Red Pump Project have kicked off their 500 in 50 program for 2011. What’s that? Well the goal is to get 500 blogs in 50 days, to rock the Red Pump Project widget on their site and support the cause of HIV/AIDS awareness. Click here to join us!
I had a down day recently and my friend Karel of Outlish Magazine cheered me up with a song that in no time at all, has become a personal anthem. This song, I’m Beautiful by up and coming artist Aloe Blacc. You may have seen him on Conan O’Brien last night, rockin out on I Need a Dollar.
Aloe Blacc is an amazing singer – evocative of John Legend and Anthony Hamilton, and also a great rapper. I absolutely adore the message of I’m Beautiful. I hope it lifts your spirits and inspires you today!
