On Thursday, people around the world come together in support of World Cancer Day, an annual global milestone spotlighting the role we all play in fighting cancer. In addition to promoting awareness, the initiative helps raise funds for cancer research, crossing all demographics and genres. The Phase One Foundation (on which Undercover Agent, Holly, serves) is chasing scientific developments to fund Phase One clinical trials. Rarely do we promote such a personal passion, but it is incumbent on all of us to fight the disease.
Do you remember GE’s Portable Hair Dryer? The Curler Cradle? Tip Top Rollers and Curler Tape? Don’t be alarmed! These relics of the past are simply part of our new Way Back Wednesdays series. Today, many of these tools have been replaced by Self-Grip Velcro Rollers, Sarah Potempa’s Beachwaver, and Conair’s Extreme Heat Jumbo and Super Jumbo Rollers. We were delighted to learn that Conair still makes a tabletop dryer, the Conair Pro Style Hard Hat, for those of us multitasking or trying to shut out the rest of the world. That way we can still set our hair while doing a DIY manicure!

Modern Family’s Ariel Winter, 18, has nothing to hide. In fact, at Saturday’s SAG Awards, the actress wore a stunning black lace gown from Romona KeveŽa. By Sunday, she had received a barrage of negative comments regarding the appearance of a scar emerging from the side of her breast. After the on-line bullying, Winter took to Twitter, posting, “Guys there is a reason I didn’t make an effort to cover up my scars! They are part of me and I’m not ashamed of them at all. :)”
In June Winter had undergone breast reduction surgery, taking her down from a 32F to a 34D. She recently admitted to People, “Being a 5-ft.-tall girl and having extremely large breasts is really ostracizing and excruciatingly painful” adding, “It was an instant weight lifted off my chest – both literally and figuratively.”
