The Caviar Manicure

December 19, 2012

Here’s a fun and festive manicure, perfect for your holiday parties and events!

Top 10 Gifts For The Beauty Product Obsessed

December 12, 2012

I love this time of year. The smell of pine in the air, the crackling sound of a warm fire, the twinkle of Christmas lights, the taste of fudge and cookies. It makes me all warm and tingly inside. You know what else makes me tingly (besides Chris Pine)? It’s when all the major makeup […]

Feeling Lucky?

December 11, 2012

Last week I spent 24 hours in New York City doing something I absolutely never thought I would ever do… trying on designer jeans. I’m a plus size girl; designer jeans aren’t exactly in my size demographic. The thought of doing trying on jeans in front of a room of Lucky Jeans professionals, well, let’s […]

Holiday Makeup Tips: Go For The Gold

November 27, 2012

If you are anything like me, the idea of holiday parties fills you with both glee and dread. Glee, because who doesn’t want to partake of the free bar, the bill for which is footed by your husband’s boss? Dread, because oh my gosh these people only see me once a year and I need […]

To Bang Or Not to Bang? A Question for You.

November 20, 2012

Ridiculous Shoegasms Made More Affordable

November 5, 2012

Confession: I’m a shoe horse. I love shoes, and I’m very open about my shoegasms (these are like orgasms, only better).

Five Scarf Ties For Fall

October 22, 2012

One of my favorite fall accessories is the scarf. I have found, like most fashion pieces, that when it comes to my body, proportion is key and scarves are no exception. I have a larger chest, so thin triangle scarves often looked dwarfed on my bust, and as a result, leave me appearing broader and […]

Beauty Rebellion: 5 Beauty Rules to Break
