• Currently Loving: Winter Coats

    November 26, 2014 at 4:00 am // by

    The need for warm winter coats is finally here. The country has been slammed with unexpected weather this past week that makes cozy clothes not only a desire, but a must. Since this time of year tends to be filled with a mix of event types and seasonal changes, it’s always good to have a few jacket styles in your closet for any occasion. That way you can layer them over must-have sweaters, bundle them over bulky clothes or add […]

  • What I’m Thankful for This Year

    November 25, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    My dear beautifuls. It’s that time of year again, when the weather is cooler (unless you’re living in Florida) and nothing sounds better than snuggling up in your soft blanket with a warm drink in hand. I truly hope you all get a chance to spend quality time with the people you love. Whether it’s your family, friends, loved ones or even strangers. Make the best of it! I never believed being family meant we share the same bloodline. The […]

  • 5 Favorites: Artists to Know

    November 21, 2014 at 4:00 am // by

    Ever since I was a little kid I have loved art. I love creating it, admiring it, and knowing that it has been a key component of my career. As I’ve gotten older some of my tastes have changed, but many have not – I still love bright colors and modern lines. And I still appreciate design work with animals (cat prints are the bombdotcom). So today for my five favorites I thought I’d share some of the artists I’ve […]

  • Beauty and Body Uses of Turmeric

    November 19, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    Turmeric might just look like another spice to liven up your Asian cuisine (yum, curry), but it’s really a powerful food that can help your body and beauty routine. Turmeric comes from the Curcuma longa plant and is usually found in powder form. It has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, can alleviate stomach problems, and help heal skin issues like eczema and allergic reactions. Turmeric is also loaded with antioxidants.  I love using holistic medicine, sound therapy, and natural foods and […]

  • What It Means to be a Feminist

    November 18, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    Lately I’ve wanted to make my blog a bit more personal, so you really get a glimpse of my world. Sometimes that means swapping a beauty topic for something like study tips or relationship advice – or even today’s post on feminism. Awhile back I wrote about inspiring women, and so many of you had amazing responses that I wanted to use that as a jumping off point, specifically in regards to feminism. For whatever reason, feminism often gets a […]

  • The Power of Sound Therapy

    November 17, 2014 at 4:00 am // by

    Our busy lives can often get the best of us. An overloaded life, with little time for rest or reflection, causes imbalance and can lead to a range of unexpected physical and mental problems. But balance isn’t just about taking time to unwind, I find it’s also about using various tools to optimize the impact of those breaks. One way to do this is by incorporating music into your meditations or by using it to center yourself – creating your […]

  • Quick Tip: How to Tame Unruly Brows

    November 13, 2014 at 3:52 am // by

    Though it seems like some people are simply blessed with brows that maintain that perfect subtle arch and actually stay in place, the truth is that most of us have to do a little maintenance to get there. If you’ve see my Beauty Basics: Brows video, you know that I don’t leave the house without at least touching up my brows. Grooming and filling in where necessary makes a world of difference! In my opinion, if you want to keep […]

  • DIY Pumpkin Beauty Recipes

    November 12, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    During fall and winter months we can’t help but smell the scent of cinnamon, cider and pumpkin pie on the air. It’s the one time of year that our sense of smell takes over and our tastebuds lust for seasonal treats. It’s also when our bodies scream for nourishment due to the cold, dry weather we are exposed to. So why not combine the two by incorporating our favorite seasonal squash, the pumpkin, into our beauty routines.  Pumpkins are loaded […]

  • Morning Rush: Last-Minute Beauty Tips

    November 11, 2014 at 4:00 am // by

    We’ve all had those mornings, the ones where we spring out of bed in a panic because we’ve overslept or we’re required to wake up before the sun even rises for an early meeting. These days tend to leave us with droopy, puffy eyes and parched skin. But if you can take care of both before running out the door and spruce up your look on the way, you’ll feel much more confident throughout your day.   For your last-minute […]

    5 Favorites: Home DIY Projects

    It used to seem like people were either crafty or they weren’t, that people were artists or not. But these days anyone can pull off a DIY, even if they aren’t used to creating. I’m sure I’ve said it before, but home should be your sanctuary, your happy place. For me that means a bright, modern space, calming colors, and lots of expressive details.

    Face Yoga: How to Fight Signs of Aging

    We spend a good portion of our time trying to stay healthy and obtain our ideal body through exercise. We engage in 10 minute workouts, yoga, dance and a whole range of other activities to strengthen and tone our core, legs and arms. But what we often don’t think about exercising is our face. This may sound like an odd practice, but by massaging–or rather doing face yoga regularly–you’ll tone face muscles and fight aging. Facial yoga is just that, […]

    Music to Match Any Mood

    Music. It’s an incredible thing. The right track can aid concentration, give you a little extra oomph to get through a day and bring on a flood of emotions. It can inspire, uplift and alter our lives and health. For me, music plays an integral part in my daily life. The right track sparks creativity, so I’m listening to new jams all the time while working. My love for music is part of the reason I started my record label […]

    A Perfect Pair: Wearing Sparkle With Matte

    Sparkle can always be injected into our beauty routine, but this time of year, we start shining a little brighter. For the next two months we’ll bring out our favorite sequin pieces and find ways to scream holiday flair through our makeup. But as much as I love products that glisten, there is such thing as too much bling. A face that shines all over can look reflective instead of polished. So how do you make sure you still look […]

    20 Things You’ll Learn in Your 20s

    When we’re young our problems seem massive. A C on a test, a crush that doesn’t know we exist, the popular girls aren’t our friends…there are tons of feelings and interactions we fumble our way through during our teens. It can be overwhelming and confusing. But then our 20s come along and we gain more perspective on life and what truly matters. Our 20s don’t always make sense, but these years are the building blocks of our future. They are […]

    5 Steps to a Brighter Morning

    For every early bird there’s at least a few of us who can’t seem to wake up before a certain hour. Truth is, the majority of people up for school and work at 6am have trained themselves to do so. I’ve learned how good it can feel to have a successful, productive morning (I love to multitask), but that’s not to say it’s a total breeze! For some, literally having a “good morning” is easier than others. But no matter […]
