I want to not need this validation.

I think I have a problem with self esteem. Objectively, I know that I am a physically attractive person. This has been confirmed by plenty of people throughout my life. I want more than anything to be told by my husband that I am beautiful in certain ways, but he can't or won't. I don't want to need something from him that he is unable to give. How can I either stop focusing on this, or learn how to validate myself without his input? [more inside]

DIY Budget Natural & Organic beauty podcasts wanted

Does the podcast equivalent of bella sugar or the beauty section of xo jane exist? I'm looking for lighthearted, fun, podcasts about beauty, makeup, hair, nail polish, etc. Especially for ones with a focus on cheaper budget/diy/drugstore/natural& organic beauty things. I don't mind hearing about some expensive stuff, but if the entire pocast is just shilling really expensive brand name stuff I'm not interested.

Maternity Glam?

I have a niece who is skinny and very cool-looking in a glam, rock 'n roll way (for example, she was the David Bowie in an all-girl David Bowie tribute band). She loves to wear clothing from Patricia Field. Now she's pregnant. What brands of maternity clothes would keep up the hotness aspect as she grows larger? Stores in New York City and/or websites would work best for me.

She'd like beauty to go bone-deep

How much should I tip a hairdresser for a men's haircut in the US? $5? $10? 10%? 25%? How much money signals that you are thrilled with the cut, rather than just okay with it? Thoughts from people who have worked in barber shops and salons would be most appreciated.
