First Lady freshens up her
look with face-framing caramel
highlights after growing out
her ´mid-life crisis´ bangs

Daily Mail (UK), by Margot Peppers

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/28/2013 4:54:05 PM

After recently growing out her much buzzed-about bangs, Michelle Obama has debuted a new hair update: caramel colored highlights. The First Lady showed off her brand new look yesterday while speaking at a film screening in Washington, DC. The new face-framing ´do is significantly less drastic and more flattering than the blunt bangs she had cut in January, which she admitted were ´irritating´ after a while.Placed mostly around the edges of her face, the highlights are subtle and warm, in a soft honey color. Reactions to the style have been mostly positive,

"she admitted were ´irritating´ after a while."

Nothing compared to the agony we have been in watching her and her husband´s antics.

I first read "camel highlights" and had a giggle. Other than that, why does anyone care?

Look, I don´t like Michelle Obama´s politics, and I really don´t like her spending...but I do think she deserves credit for improving her look and her fashion sense over the years.

No matter how disgusted any American might be with the way the President and First Lady fulfill their offices and responsibilities, we still prefer that they present a decent appearance to foreign dignitaries while abroad.

Someone has finally taken her in hand, and she´s dressing better. The hairstyle is also an improvement. It sure took long enough.

From her picture, she may need a little Botox too. She is beginning to show her age. She is trying to emulate Kerry Washington who the President admires. Isn´t going to work. Kerry is 35; Michelle is 49. It shows. Hillary dyes her hair too. It started out a mousy brown; then, she dyed it to match Jennifer Flowers. It is probably gray by now.

I think the carmel (it´s caramel) highlights look terrible, like one of her daughters got ahold of a highlight kit. I have blond highlights which i pay a small fortune for 3 or 4 times a year but they look great. Mooches, not so much.

For such a proud black woman Mooch sure has spent a lot of money trying to look more white. Go back and look at her college photos. She´s had her nose and lips done, her hair straightened and she owns a lot of straight haired wigs. There´s some self loathing happening in her psyche.

With everything possible to make her look different, she will never be happy because Barbie does not stare back from the mirror.

She is in arrested development. She stopped growing intellectually at age 14.
Always changing her hairstyle, and wearing too tight clothes. Those huge blood red flowers on the black dress were a nightmare.
If she continues to insist on showing bare arms, I suggest she start having her armpits waxed.

Give me a break...that is NOT a wig. You can see that she has to straighten it though with lots of chemicals and such. She doesn´t have "good" hair. Look at the frizzies framing her face. They look gray too. She isn´t looking so good for 49.

The old saying that you can´t make a silk purse out of a sow´s ear is personified in the mean and nasty woman FLOTUS. As for freshening her face with caramel highlights in her hair...puleeze...no more. It doesn´t matter what she does with her hair/wigs or what highlights she chooses, she´s a classless and homely woman who inflicts her bad taste on a nation and expects to be praised. As for freshening up,here´s a tip Mooch: convince Barry Soetero to resign and depart with him and the surly girlies on the same plane headed for Chicago. Take a quick shower when after you land.

Darn it #2 beat me to it also #8. I thought the headline said camel highlights. I´ve said it before and I´ll say it again. This woman is not I repeat NOT attractive. They can put lipstick on a liberal pig and guess what it´s still a pig. No amount of fawning press by the suck-up media will change that. Also not only is the First Harridan ugly on the outside but make that double for the inside.

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

The Obama administration announced Monday that planned cuts to Medicare Advantage would not go through as anticipated amid election-year opposition from congressional Democrats. The cuts would have reduced benefits that seniors receive from health plans in the program, which is intended as an alternative to Medicare. Under cuts planned by the administration, insurers offering the plans were to see their federal payments reduced by 1.9 percent, which likely would have necessitated cuts for customers. Instead, the administration said the federal payments to insurers will increase next year by .40 percent. The healthcare law included $200 billion in cuts to Medicare

Thirteen-year-old Ethan Chaplin, who attends school in Vernon, New Jersey, was suspended for two days and will undergo a psychological evaluation after another student complained that he was "twirling a pencil" like a gun. According to News 12 New Jersey, Chaplin said he was "just twisting around a pencil with a pen cap on it when a student behind him yelled, ´He´s making gun motions, send him to juvie.´" Chaplin told officials he had repeatedly been bullied by the student who complained and that the complaint about the pencil was just an extension of that.

IRS agents testified before Congress that the agency’s political targeting did not apply to progressive groups as Democrats and the media have claimed, according to a bombshell new staff report prepared by the House Oversight Committee chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa. IRS agents testified before Oversight that ACORN groups were scrutinized because the agency thought they were old organizations applying as new ones. Emerge America was scrutinized for potential “improper private benefit.” No evidence exists that the IRS requested additional information from any Occupy Wall Street group. “Only seven applications in the IRS backlog contained the word ‘progressive,’ all of which

Just about everyone thinking about running for president is kicking it into gear now, slowpokes included. For months, many prospective 2016 presidential candidates have been rubbing shoulders with donors, networking with party leaders, getting on TV and otherwise auditioning for the contest ahead, especially on the Republican side. Their pace is picking up. A few are even admitting now what has been obvious for eons: They´re interested in the presidency, even if they aren´t ready to commit. Others have avoided the usual pathways, for reasons that make sense to them even if their inscrutability exasperates others. "This is the time

Michelle Obama’s campaign against obesity, and for healthy eating is a noble one. However, America’s public school students would beg to differ.

Now, students are posting images of the “healthy, hunger-free” lunches on Twitter and Instagram. Let’s assume they passed on carrot sticks, salad and steamed vegetables as they made their choices.

America’s biggest state is now getting its own Breitbart page. Or is it its second, counting Big Hollywood? Or its third, given Big Government’s content? If California is to make its way back to more liberty and less government--and America needs her to find her way back--then a Breitbart site dedicated to this proposition is a requisite. As part of this inaugural effort, I was asked to pen a California refugee’s perspective. Our family moved to Texas in December 2011. Moving 1,300 miles wasn’t a lightly-taken decision.

A major new Gallup survey suggests the ObamaCare sign-up numbers are not as soaring as the White House claims. The massive survey, released on Monday, shows the number of uninsured has indeed fallen to its lowest level in years, likely thanks to the Affordable Care Act. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index measured the share of adults without health insurance. That shrank from 17.1 percent at the end of last year to 15.6 percent for the first three months of 2014. The decline of 1.5 percentage points would translate roughly to more than 3.5 million people gaining coverage. But the numbers, released a

Last week´s encounter between former acting CIA Director Michael Morell and the House Permanent Subcommittee on Intelligence may have brought us a bit closer to the truth of how four Americans came to be killed at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, and how their countrymen came to be lied to about it. But the progress toward truth was probably not made in a way that Mr. Morell intended. The encounter on Capitol Hill also made clear that the forum that will take us all the way to the truth must be something other than a

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket.

The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic.

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts. Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son.

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.
