EXCLUSIVE TEMPLE OF GLAM GIVEAWAY! One Temple of Glam reader will win a signed copy of Jillian Michaels' new book, Slim for Life & a month's supply of popchips (including the delish new tortilla chips)! Just "Like" Temple of Glam on Facebook to be automatically entered...easy peasy! 5 TIPS FROM JILLIAN MICHAELS: Make A Resolution…And Keep It Resolutions don't have to begin and end at the start of a new year; resolve to do it and start now! It’s All About Balance Eat three balanced meals (every four hours) with a snack between lunch and dinner. That's key! Reach for a healthful snack like carrot sticks and hummus, fresh fruit, or almonds and dried cranberries.
Just Because It’s Not Fried Doesn’t Mean It’s Not Delicious When you're in the mood to nosh, replace fried potato chips with a more healthful alternative that satisfies your salty craving. popchips are a great and my favorite snack option! They're delicious and one single-serving bag has less than half the fat of fried chips (and only 100 calories)!
Cook Healthful Alternatives Opt for cooking methods that use little or no fat such as steaming, grilling, baking, popping, broiling or roasting. Have a weakness for fried chicken? Instead take skinless chicken breast cutlets, cover them in egg whites and a crushed up cereal like cornflakes and bake. You'll get the same great taste and more than half the calories and fat!
Grab A Buddy You will achieve greater success when you have support. So get your friends together. Here's to a healthier you in 2013!
Skinny, Flare, and Bootcut jeans. No matter your favorite fit, there's a chance you'd love a flatter-looking tummy and um, a more ample-looking butt.
Even if you've been hitting the Amstel too hard, Not Your Daughter's Jeans ($88- $130) can make you look a full size smaller, flatten your stomach, and boost your booty. How? So glad you asked. The criss-cross paneling flattens the stomach, the high-rise design prevents muffin top, and the higher back pockets visually lift the bum. For the record, I'm in love with my red Alisha skinnies.

I was ca-rushed when I realized I couldn't attend the Sephora at Shop Bop party a couple of weeks ago. Luckily one of my favorite blogger friends, The Fab Chick, wrote all about it so I kinda felt like I was there. Kinda. It wasn't until I received a Color Play 5-in 1 Kit: Fashion Edition ($30) and played with the eye, lip, and cheek colors, that I truly understood the concept.
Shop Bop created five fashion looks (Faces of Fashion). Sephora came up with complementary palettes: Boho Bombshell, Nod to Mod, Classics Never Die, Angelic Boudoir, and Black is the New Black.
Here's Boho Bombshell (I'm living for the Tibi dress!!):
The Harajuku Lovers collection has always been cute, but wicked? Now it is. Afraid you'll be unable to choose? Don't you worry! I'm giving away the entire Wicked Style collection (5 full-size fragrances, a $250 value) to one lucky Facebook fan or Twitter follower.
Not a Facebook fan? Become one. On Twitter, but not following TOG? Put an end to that madness right now!
Lil' Angel, G, Music, Baby, and Love can all be yours.
Just leave a comment with the title of your favorite Temple of Glam post. Giveaway ends on Monday!
Who woulda' thunk it? Temple of Glam's 100th post. And how symbolic for it to happen on the day we "spring forward"!
To celebrate, my peeps at glominerals will give one Temple of Glammer, my three favorite glominerals products (true, 100 would be more befitting, but hey, I'm not Oprah).
Mmhmm, the honey butter body wash , body polish, and my absolute favorite bronzing gel can be yours. Just tell me the product reviewed in my first post. I'll randomly select the winner!
It might seem strange that I'd incorporate Big Pun's "100%" video into a beauty blog. Beyond the fact that he had a wicked flow, all I can say is I'm 100% grateful for all your kind words, laughs, and support over the past 100 posts. Looking forward to 100 more!
Let's get down to biz-ness. Congratulations Vickie Riddle! You've won Lierac's NEW Crème Mésolift ($54 value)!!! I'm a little jealous right now because even I haven't tried it yet. So Vickie, you simply HAVE to give me the 411 when you try it . Oh, email your contact info to email@example.com.
For the rest of us, we can cop this ultra-rejuvenating new product (or some other dope Lierac product) during Lierac's Friends and Family Event. That's right, 30% OFF Lierac products! But, hurry it all ends this Sunday. Use code: FF2009 at checkout!
Where have you BEEN all my November? It feels like I haven't posted in forever (or a week)! I thought maybe we can kiss and makeup (heh, heh) with a glamaway. Let's be real. Even though we're in a little thing called a recession, this holiday season will most likely be just as insane as any other. Before the first toy store casualty hits the 11 o'clock news, take a moment to enjoy the calm before the storm. Oh, and score something that will keep you looking gorgeous and rejuvenated as you knock out that shopper trying to snag the last Snuggie™.
Remember "Muppets Take Manhattan" when Miss Piggy came face-to-face (snout to nose?) with Joan Rivers in the cosmetics department? The excitement the two felt at the very sight of the powder puff, lipstick, and eyeliner. Well that's exactly how excited I am to do my first giveaway!
Why: Because well, they're FREE beauty products...why ask why?
How: Email the answer to the question below to firstname.lastname@example.org to win! I'll randomly select and announce the winner on Monday. Easy peasy, right? Good Luck!
Here's the Question: In an earlier post, "Expatriate Beauty: Bananas, Feathers, Whips & Shackles" I mentioned one of my beauty icons. The product I wrote about was named after her. What's this icon's full (correctly spelled) name?
