Confession time: Until recently, I considered a basic ponytail an updo. A fancy updo. To me, away from face = all things glam. Bonus points if my ponytail managed a cute tip flip (think Charlotte in Sex in the City). Then it truly was an elegant ‘do. Sigh. Clearly, my hair‘s been lacking in the glam department. So I decided to get on track by […]
We all know that a great ‘do (as well as shoes and accessories) completes our look, but I’ll be the first to admit to falling flat when it comes to my hair. To the rescue? Hot rollers! That’s right ladies, break out the hot rollers. No more “who’s looking at my hair when I’ve got these heels?” moments or being […]
Let’s face it, we spend a lot of time behind the wheel. Whether it’s commuting to work or keeping that long distance relationship going, we’re racking up some serious miles. While we may be enjoying the scenery along the way, what about what we see on the inside of our car? Yeah, I thought so: black mats, beige steering wheels, yucky grocery […]
Ladies, Earth Day is upon us, which means increased awareness about beautifying and preserving the Earth. This got us thinking: we’re always on the lookout for ways to beautify and preserve our skin, so hmmm, why not go for the best of both worlds? Glowing skin is always in, and helping the Earth at the same […]
What do Tina Fey, Katy Perry and Diane Keaton have in common? They’re not just famous ladies, but famous ladies known for their stand-out eyeglasses. From cat eye peepers to tortoise shell frames, these celebs bust the “men don’t make passes at women who wear glasses” myth big time. Whether they’re chic, “nerdy” or just plain ‘ole quirky, we’re loving the looks of these bespectacled beauties.
Ah, rainy April is here. As my garden-loving grandma says, “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, look who woke up on the sunny side of her orthopedic pillow. Actually, I appreciate her rainy day positivity. Just because it’s gray and dreary doesn’t mean our wardrobe should follow suit. We might as well look our best and brightest no matter how many puddles we’re […]
Ah, music. From gym playlists to concerts, tunes that let us get our groove on are always good in our book. Whether we’re chatting about Beyonce’s use of the “B-word” in her latest song “Bow Down,” reminiscing about music from back in the day (oh boy, that would be Def Leppard, Belinda Carlisle and Eddie Money for me) or excited about checking out a new local […]
First the Olsen twins had that whole “let’s decorate bags with prescription pills” thing happening and now, it’s all about LEGO bricks. This time it’s not an Olsen brainchild, but that of LEGO jewelry and accessories maker, Agnieszka Biernacka (say that three times fast). Biernacka is selling a limited edition LEGO-made Gucci replica on her site, […]
With superstorms, Arctic blasts and rain popping up all over the place lately, it’s safe to say we’re psyched for Spring. What to wear to kick warmer (hopefully) weather into high gear? Stripes, of course!
Anyone who thinks great nail color and design 1) can only be achieved at a salon or 2) is best worn in shades like “buff,” “beige” or “sand” is missing out in the beauty department. Big time. See, I’m a believer in creativity, whether I’m talking about nail color or wall color. In fact, when […]
