Weight Issues: Focus On You, Not Them


I often wish we could just stop talking about weight issues, but for now the reality is that we still judge women by their weight. We're either too this or too that. Fashion magazines continue to plaster skinny women on their pages as if it's still the norm, which further exacerbates the issue.

Quick 10-Minute Workouts to Feel Good Now

One nice way to give yourself a jolt of energy, feel good, and get in shape is a quick 10 minute workout. For the past month I've been challenging myself to walk at least 1 mile or do some form of exercise at least 10 minutes a day, although I did fall off a little these past few days.

Top 4 Causes of Baggy Eyes

Oh, baggy eyes, how do I get rid of thee?

I was watching the Dr. Oz show recently where he revealed the top causes of baggy eyes:

1.  Aging
2.  Allergies
3.  Salt
4.  Sleep Habits

So apparently it's inevitable that we will face this annoying issue the older we get, and for me, the process has already begun.

Get In Touch With Your Soles

Juil patent leather sandals

Although I live in Southern California, the land of flip flops and sandals, I usually stay away from the thong sandal variety. Call me weird, but I used to think that thong sandals and flip flops were the gateway to lazy fashion, meaning that you would soon be wearing baggy sweat pants and t-shirts on the regular. How that notion came to my mind, I don't know.

Steamcream Review: All-In-One Moisturizer to the Rescue

A couple weeks ago I had a run-in with the Super Dry Skin Monster who had his way with the precious skin on my forehead.

I don't know why that area seems to always be a target, but the monster did some major damage. It could be that my skin is sensitive to the new hairspray I used, and some of it hit my forehead as I was spraying my hair. It's already bad enough that I'm getting older and my skin is changing. Regardless, the Super Dry Skin Monster attacks every once in awhile hairspray or not, and I'll be damned if it comes back this winter!

Wearing chic eyeglasses seems to be one way to make a fashion statement this fall, especially oversized glasses, colored frames or vintage frames. What’s nice about eyewear is that you can create a fashionable new look with just a pair of glasses. Inspiration can be found from Badgley Mischka and DKNY, brands that showcased glasses with their fall 2013 collections.

Just like eyeglasses should complement your style and face shape, it’s also good to have a hairstyle that matches those frames too.  Here are a few hairstyle ideas to consider depending on the eyeglasses you wear and what shape your face is:

If so, in my next life I think I’d like to inspire and guide young designers who want to take on the demanding, but oh so rewarding journey of fashion design.

So if I was a fashion career counselor, here are the top 5 things I would want students to know:

Drew Barrymore's Flower Power


For me, Drew Barrymore will always be "America's Sweetheart".

Despite living the majority of her life in the Hollywood spotlight where she could have easily gone down a path of scandal or demise as many do, Drew managed to break free from the norm and has grown up to become a very mature, down-to-earth, and joyful person.

I’ve been mulling over what I want to do with my beaded jewelry business - whether or not I should continue with the business. I want my jewelry to be completely unique and different from what others are offering. In my quest for jewelry inspiration, I found out about the Tacori brand of engagement rings, which I actually have never heard of until now. (Or maybe I just never paid attention?) I know what you’re thinking: “What rock has she been living under?” Apparently, a big rock, and it’s not a diamond.

I was browsing through the Tacori rings offered by Whiteflash Inc., and was truly inspired by these designs in particular…
