Ever meet a lady who makes amazing DIY facial scrubs and has the complexion to show for it . . . only to watch her pull out a $7 pack (at least) of cigs and puff away? Sigh. November 21 is the Great American Smokeout, so it seemed appropriate to write a post about the benefits of quitting.
Wearing makeup that makes us look amazing is always a good thing. But wearing makeup that’s good for our bodies and the environment? Huge plus. Thank goodness for green makeup, free of toxins and unpronounceable words that sound just as nasty as they are for us and the Earth.
For ladies who love to get their squats on but cringe at the thought of going to the gym completely makeup-less, I hear ya. I lost tons of weight years ago and continue to go to the gym . . . wearing makeup. I know, I know. The gym should be all about ponytails, profuse sweating and body […]
Summer has come and gone and with the focus off our bare legs, pedis and tanned arms, what’s a fashionista to do? Why, glam up our fingers with cocktail rings, of course! We love the bold statement a cocktail ring makes, drawing attention to our manis as well as our vibrant personality.
Just eight days after Macy’s announced they will be open for the first time ever on Thanksgiving Day, Kohl’s has followed in their footsteps. However, while Macy’s will remain open for 24 hours straight until the close of business on Friday, Kohl’s has pulled a one-up move on Macy’s: they’re staying open for – get this – 28 hours straight.

Still wearing black eyeliner for every event, season and mood? I was, too, until it felt, well, boring. To liven up my look, I started wearing colored eyeliner and I’m thrilled to report: I’m in love. I’m able to brighten up my look without looking like a showgirl or like I just stepped out of the 80s. I admit, switching from black […]
Ladies, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. We can’t get enough of the support this time of year, from pink blouses to informative seminars. In addition to walks/runs, screenings and fundraising efforts galore, tons of stores are also doing their share to raise awareness. Many donate a portion to the cause (shout out to Kohl’s, where 100% of certain items’ profit supports the fight against […]
This time of year means sipping cider, picking pumpkins and (eye roll) Halloween outfits that bare more cleavage than Kim Kardashian wearing a push-up bra. If Halloween outfits aren’t about showing a lot of skin, they’re about clowns with eye socket issues. What’s a conservative fashionista to do?
Now that fall is here, that means our sandals are taking a backseat to booties. So much for showing off our pedis (but yay to cool-looking shoes). Unfortunately, taking care of our feet in the fall goes by the wayside. They’re smothered in booties, socks and tights and soon, we’re crinkling our noses: Sweat. Odor. Heels rough enough to file […]
Forget the candy. Right now, oodles of Halloween decorations and costumes are in stores everywhere, reminding us that it’s time to do some serious Halloween party planning. Whether we’re hosting a mega bash or having a small “ghouls” night in (ha, I crack myself up), the right kind of Halloween home décor and accessories can create a bootiful party mood […]
