ENTOURAGE'S Emmanuelle Chriqui in Women's Health Magazine

I absolutely love the HBO show Entourage and think Emmanuelle Chriqui is stunning and great on the show! That's why I was really happy that Chriqui opens up to Women’s Health ( in the July/August issue on her exotic look, challenges she’s faced in her career, and advice on how to embrace being different. It's a fantastic interview that you should definitely read.

*Since Palacinka means crepe in eastern Europe (and is a colloquial term in my husband's native Slovenian town for "pretty girl"), I thought that Friday Palacinka "bites" would be a nice way of wrapping up additional beauty-related news here on the blog at the end of the week. Enjoy! - RLB
