What the left hand is known for: loyalty and fidelity.  Romantic expectations and vows honored, usually enshrined in platinum and diamonds.

However, your right hand — that lucky minx — gets to be a little bit naughtier.

A Phantom cuff and rings from Hoorsenbuhs. Smith/Nelson

Take the Hoorsenbuhs ring above, for example.  It’s the perfect right hand ring.  Even its name is bold and a bit risque: the Dame Phantom II.  This sounds more like a superhero’s car than a ring, but this is appropriate for the amount of vrrooom it gives off.

What we also love: the interplay of sweetness and edge.  Sweetness: the rose gold.  Edge: black diamonds.  This is clearly the accessory — and jewelry line — for a woman both feminine and powerful.

Like any sassy dame, the Hoorsenbuhs ring comes with a great story to tell.  Designer Robert Keith named his company after a ship owned by his Dutch ancestors, who ferried precious metals and gems around the world.

It’s no wonder, then, that his current creations exude a sense of adventure.

Once only available for custom orders, Hoorsenbuhs jewelry has been a huge hit since becoming available at Barneys New York.

Spotted on celebs like the Katie Holmes and the Olsens, this 18k gold and diamond ring takes a relatively traditional horsey design and sparks it with bling. Bold and unisex, it is available at Barneys for USD $5,000. I could see this as a really nice wedding set – it also comes in sterling silver with gold beads for $1500 and in a slightly modified design (the Dame Phantom II) with fewer diamonds. Get it now before the price of gold goes up AGAIN.

La Toya Jackson Pays Tribute To Her Brother Michael In New Book ‘Starting Over’

1 Aug Latoya-Jackson-Book-Signing-2011-400394A

Photo by David Livingston/Getty

Author La Toya Jackson attends a signing for her book “Starting Over” at Barnes & Noble at The Grove on June 28, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

La Toya Jackson was always closer to Michael than anyone knew. In this heartfelt memoir, she pays tribute to his tortured soul—revealing the intimate moments she shared with the deeply troubled pop legend. The first sibling to arrive at the hospital after Michael was rushed there, and the informant on his death certificate, La Toya noticed suspicious details and demanded a second autopsy.

For the first time, she unveils shocking behind-the-scenes dealings that she believes led to her brother’s death, and she provides unprecedented insight into the destruction of one of the most dynamic artist/performers in history.

In an account sure to send shock waves around the globe, La Toya sheds new light on the dynamics of the Jackson family and the curtain of secrecy and intrigue that has surrounded her brother Michael, and the rest of the Jackson children, since they became stars in the ’60s and ’70s.

She explains her estrangement from— and gradual reconciliation with—one of America’s most famous and close-knit families. Like Michael, La Toya experienced an upbringing that made her vulnerable to exploitation, and her own journey led to hell and back at the hands of her former manager and husband, Jack Gordon.

Sharing with honesty and an open heart some of the most painful episodes of her life story, La Toya reveals how anyone—regardless of fame, fortune, or status—can be trapped in a cycle of abuse, and how she was able to…

Beauty tips to slim your face

Contouring and highlighting your face can bring out your cheek bones, shorten your nose, slim your face and rid you of a double chin. Here’s how to do it …1.“Think of your face as a canvas,” explains Thomas. Once you’ve applied foundation to even out your complexion you need to shade and highlight areas to create shape. Think of the principles of light and dark — any areas made darker will appear as though they’re receding, and anything made lighter appear as though it’s coming forward.2.“I think the easiest product to use is a bronzing powder without too much shimmer,” explains Thomas. Always start with a little on your brush and build it up gradually.3.Begin by building your cheek bones. To do this, add a little bronzer below your cheek bone, from the hairline to towards the apples of your cheek, in a wedge-like shape. This trick is especially good for women who have very round faces. “[Contouring is] all about reshaping your face and giving it sharper edges — you can never have too-high cheek bones,” says Thomas.4. To make a wide or very round forehead appear narrower, shade just the temples or sides of the forehead, and to slim a wide nose, apply the bronzer down the sides of your nose. Want your nose to appear shorter? Shade the underside of the tip.

5. Disguise a double chin by shading the area under your jaw line. Blending is key in contouring your face — the idea is that you can’t see where the contouring starts and stops.

6. If you don’t have deep-set eyes (ie lids that are still visible when your eyes are open), make them pop by shading along the crease line. Do this either with the bronzer or an eyeshadow that’s a shade darker than the colour you’ll wear.

7. To bring areas of your face forward, thus emphasising them, do the opposite to contouring and use a highlighter (most likely a shimmery powder a bit lighter than your skin colour). The areas you want to do this to are your new-found cheek bones, and the centre of your eyelids. When it comes to your lips, dab a lighter lip shade or illuminating cream just in the middle of them.

Contouring and highlighting your face can take a little practice, but as Thomas says, “Once you start, you’ll want to do it every day.” His tip: try it next time you have a big event coming up and take note of how you look in photos taken on the day. “People in film, TV and pictures can’t live without [this trick].”

NB: You don’t have to use a bronzer and highlighter to do this make-up trick — darker and lighter foundations can be used as well.
