August’s The Best Of Beauty Counter

We’re sorry to see August go. No more weekends down the Jersey Shore or weeklong jaunts to Chicago by way of Japan (don’t ask) until next year.

More news about Emma Watson’s much discussed new pixie cut has surfaced. Word on the street is that the Harry Potter star and Burberry muse cut her locks for a chance at the lead role in the highly anticipated film version of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

He has to stop lying,” the Jersey Shore sun worshipper has quipped. The President’s speechwriters are no doubt working on his retort as we speak.
