Is it wine? Please say it’s wine! This is the million dollar question right? What to eat for clear skin? Is it that simple? Can we really eat our way to smooth, silky, pimple-free skin? The answer isn’t a hard yes, but it’s not a no either. And I should know, I’ve spent my life […]

Chances are, ladies wearing high hemlines are more optimistic about the economy than their maxi dress wearing friends, and more likely to think the leg-baring style will be this fall’s trend. According to the 2013 BlogHer-Taubman Style Survey, 47% of women predicted above- the-knee hemlines to be this season’s look, reinforcing a longstanding theory that says hemlines rise and fall […]
Let’s face it: most of us let out a gym-worthy grunt when hoisting our heavy handbags, right? Now we know why; according to the 2013 style survey conducted jointly by BlogHer, Inc. and Taubman Centers (over 1,600 women, 18+ responded to style, trend and technology-related questions), one third of us are toting around six or more pounds of must-have goodness in our handbags.

What holds up in hot and humid won’t work in the dipping temps, particularly with our beauty routines.
New York Fashion Week always makes us giddy. We love eyeing up every detail right down to nail trends. This past year saw us through all kinds of looks including magnetized swirl effects, nail art and even fuzzy nails. But forward-thinking fashionistas need to know what’s in store for us come Spring/Summer 2014, right?
