Word to the Mothers

www.leichic.com

You consider your weekly dose of Us Weekly and InTouch a great real-life reality check – who doesn’t feel better after reading Worst Bikini Bodies and Stars Without Makeup?

But you know those Baby Bump Joy stories –  and their sequels, Bikini Body 5 Weeks After Baby –  are as unreliable as Brangelina breakup rumors.

A Brief Encounter

I see London, I see France…

Project Runway

www.leichic.com 
When fashion designers unveil their collections in New York or Paris, it’s a weeklong affair of parties, celebrities and paparazzi − just to see a lot of clothes no one can wear in real life anyway.
