  • Quick Tip: How to Keep Your Razor from Rusting

    October 30, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    I’m glad you guys found last week’s eyeliner trick so helpful! Now I have another tip that only takes a few minutes but actually saves time and money, too. With how long shaving takes – and it being something you really don’t want to cut corners on! – we could all use a few tricks to make the process go smoothly (no pun intended). For me, that’s making sure I don’t have any surprises when I step in the shower […]

  • 20 Things You’ll Learn in Your 20s

    October 29, 2014 at 2:40 am // by

    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

    October 28, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    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 […]

  • The Beauty Benefits of Banana Peels

    October 27, 2014 at 4:00 am // by

    It always amazes me that the newest health and beauty remedies to emerge on the scene are often ancient techniques used by various cultures in the past – or even modern cultures that we’re simply not that familiar with. Sometimes the simple, natural route is the way to go, as opposed to expensive products and treatments. I like to think my beauty regimen is a little bit of both: Always open to new ideas from today’s society, but with the […]

    Alright guys, the countdown has officially begun! Checking out the entries so far on my em Halloween Giveaway (there’s still time – to enter click here) has been so inspiring.

    Quick Tip: The Eye Pencil Sharpening Trick

    Wow, has it really been that long since I shared a beauty quick tip here on my site?

Today I thought I’d share a trick that does both, and could even save a few beauty products too. Those of […]

    5 Favorites: Fall Book Debuts

    Books had a major influence on me growing up, so naturally that influenced my desire to write one myself.

From essay collections written by the most empowering women in Hollywood to enlightening and inspiring reads, here are four of the books on my list this fall… I’ve already finished the fifth one. ;) 1.  Not That Kind of Girl: […]

    For the Girl Who Doesn’t Wear Costumes

    Over the next two weeks there will be ghoulish gatherings around every corner. Halloween is almost here, and while many of you may be excited to go all Audrey Hepburn Zombie on the holiday, some may take the low key route. Some of us can’t commit to a character or costume in time for the holiday, while others want to show their fun side in the most wearable of ways. If you’re the girl who doesn’t like having to dress […]

    How to Strengthen Your Relationships

    Life has been busier than ever – with my book tour and all the Halloween mania, it’s harder than ever to break away for even a moment. It’s also a huge reminder not to lose sight of what’s important, and for me that means my relationships. I realize how busy all of my friends and subbies are too, so it seems like a good time to share what’s vital when it comes to keeping and improving close friendships and relationships […]

    Traveling Beauty: Makeup Bag Musts

    I have a great deal of travel planned for the rest of the year. There’s my book tour, a few international business trips, and of course, the holidays. Because climates can change drastically from one stop to the next–the duration of each trip differing as well–I try to tailor my makeup and skin care to include versatile products that can get the job done no matter where I’m visiting. Product overpacking is something I’m all too familiar with, but over […]

    6 Uncommon Superfoods with Major Beauty Benefits

    I’ve talked about my favorite green juice and the best detoxifying foods, but did you know that all those super foods have a major beauty payoff too? Nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables often contain vitamins and minerals responsible for providing that natural glow we all want our skin to have. You don’t have to stick to a strict diet of leafy greens and classic fruits, however – you can switch up your diet with these uncommon super foods.   1) Camu […]

    You know what they say: history repeats itself. Yes, I love that as a society we’re always coming up with new ideas and stumbling upon the next big thing, but it’s so fun to look back on the years past at all the fashion trends or interests of women our age. Vintage beauty looks (and beauty tips), as well as fashion and culture, still have such an enormous influence on our lives today. With that in mind, I perused the archives […]

    Tricks for The Best Concealer Application

    Concealer is a beauty product that, on the surface, seems so simple it shouldn’t need to be explained. With shades, types, techniques and tools to consider, very few actually get it totally right. Because the point of concealer is to look like nothing is there at all, it can be a serious game changer when you finally learn the way to apply it to your advantage. Here are a few things to take into consideration next time you reach for […]
