Friday roundup - February 29, 2008

It's Friday ... and a leap year as well! Since it's Friday, it's time to recognize notable blogging activity from friends of The Style Page:

Mischo Beauty discovers the butter London line of nail polishes, which are free of formaldehyde, toluene or dibutyl phthalate. You may find butter London at b-glowing.

Beauty Maverick loves the Cannabis Santal Scented Candle from Fresh. She also reacts to the news that druggie Amy Winehouse is set to launch her own beauty line: No, no, no.

~charng of Frivolous Rants returns to blogging after a month's absence. She examines how changing female roles have affected marriage. Given the angry response my article on Let's Stop Glamorizing Pregnancy Out of Wedlock has generated, I think that some might be offended by the traditionalist views (not necessarily her own) that ~charng describes and seemingly longs for at some level. In that case, it's important to remember that she's writing as a member of the Chinese community in Malaysia - a far more traditional society than the U.S. or, for that matter, Europe.

Beauty Addict has disdained most celebrity fragrances, with the exception of Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely and Covet. Now she admits her fondness for Glow by J. Lo and the new (married) mother's latest fragrance Deseo.
