Introducing PINK Body from Victoria's Secret

Victoria's Secret wants ladies everywhere to "think green, live pink," and as part of this eco-initiative, they've launched PINK Body, a new line of bath and beauty products that claims to be better for you and the environment. Prices range from $8 for lip butter to $15 for energizing body lotion (now 2/$20 with special promo). You've gotta applaud this move, just don't stop doing your homework at sites like, which rates products and makeup based on their toxicity. Will you be trying out this new line?

From the Victoria's Secret pressroom: INTRODUCING PINK BODY, a unique line of skin-loving and earth-friendly products created specifically for the pink girl. She spoke. We listened. The result? A more personalized approach to everyday body care using organic and vegan ingredients, powerful natural formulas and eco-friendly packaging. With three dermatologist-tested, solution-specific collections, each designed to pamper pink girls from tip to toe: nourishing for dry skin, energizing for dull, sluggish skin and soothing for extra-sensitive skin. Plus, four additional essentials that everyone can use and love. It's all about finding ways to look good, feel good and do a little good, too.

Four Leopard Print Cardigans: Would You Wear One?

The prim and proper cardigan is taken up a notch with a wild animal print, which makes the leopard print cardigan the perfect mix of naughty and nice—or is it? I've seen leopard print cardigans just about everywhere from J.Crew to Target. So far, I haven't taken the bait. My instincts tell me that the inexpensive ones look cheap and the expensive ones are too pricey for something I can't wear very often. What do you think, are leopard print cardigans spot on or do they miss the mark?
