On last night's episode of The Hills, Kristin and Stacie head to Vegas, baby. Their goal is to forget their LA problems and pick up lots of boys dressed in their skimpy finest. "We're not looking for Mr. Right, we're looking for Mr. Right Now," declares Stacie. However, after noticing an abundance of "douchey" guys, Kristin, in a moment of weakness, calls a mystery man. Is it Justin? Could it be Brody? The next morning, much to our shirtless manjoyment, we discover it's Audrina's ex, Justin. Where exactly is the future heading for these two, anyway?

Cetaphil cleanser is one of those gold standard drugstore products, but I hadn't heard very much about the rest of the brand's line until I saw this review of Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer For All Skin Types With SPF 15 ($11) by reader ajkenyon. Here's what she has to say:
"I love Cetaphil cleanser so much, and I figured the moisturizer must be just as good, right? Well, wrong, unfortunately. I love the SPF, and it does make my skin very soft. But it just doesn't absorb well, and it leaves my face looking shiny and blotchy. I'll definitely keep using the cleanser, but I'm going back to Lush for my moisturizer!"

If you have no time to wash and style your hair, you can pump up the look with three basic ingredients: a round brush, a blow dryer, and a volumizing product, like Luxurious Volume Lavish Lift Root Booster ($6) or Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray ($18). First, hold the hair straight up on dry hair and spray the roots. Next, take a small section from right behind the fringe, wrap it around the round brush, and blow-dry, concentrating on lifting the roots for volume. Finish off by grabbing subsequent sections of hair back toward the crown, and there you go. It's instant volume without too much effort.
'Tis the season of receiving lots of invites to Thanksgiving and holiday gatherings, and since my mom always told me I should never come to a party empty-handed, it's time to start thinking hostess gifts.

Also, I'm all for gifting classic makeup items that your hostess will wear not just for the holidays, but throughout the year. See what I mean below:
