Ideally, it should stock a solid array of polishes, play a soothing Zen soundtrack that lulls you to sleep in the pedicure chair, have an excellent selection of recent magazine issues, and be known for paying and treating their highly-trained staff fairly.

    R.I.P., Bebe: The 2000s Mall Favorite Is Indeed Closing All Of Its Stores

    Say it ain't so: Bebe is, in fact, planning to shutter all of its brick and mortar locations, and soon, per a Securities & Exchange Commission filing this week. In February, the brand planned to close 21 stores, and last month, Bloomberg reported that the closures would affect an even larger proportion of the mall staple's outposts and segue into an e-comm-only business. Now, it's clear that the closures are far more substantial: per the SEC filing, the chain is shuttering all of its locations, which amounts to 134 locations of Bebe proper and 34 Bebe Outlet stores.

    Why Is Looking Your Age Such A Bad Thing?

    Plus, as women age today, they continue to have a strong presence and voice, certainly compared with previous generations where they faded into the background, says Josie Howard, MD, a psychiatrist and psycho-dermatologist in San Francisco. It’s a demographic fact too: “We are adjusting to longer life spans, later marriage, and children — translating into an expansion of youth and shrinkage of 'old age,'” says Nancy Etcoff, PhD, a professor of psychology at Harvard Medical school, as well as author of the book Survival of the Prettiest. “The need to look ‘younger than our years’ has become a cultural norm over the past few decades,” says Vivian Diller, PhD, a New York City psychotherapist, former model, and author of Face It: What Women Really Feel as Their Looks Change.

Marissa Carter, the founder of U.K.-based self-tanner brand Cocoa Brown, is finding that out the hard way after slamming the blogging industry for what she says is a lack of authenticity. “[Other brands] try to do what we did with Cocoa Brown when we initially started — working with bloggers to try and grow their brand,” Carter said in an interview that aired on Irish business podcast The Capital B, referring to other companies that have taken the approach of collaborating with beauty bloggers to promote their products rather than traditional advertising.
