How to Be a Classy Lady: 14 Small Details that Define Class & Poise

Class is more than talking politely. It’s something deep in you. You know how to be a classy lady, you just need to harness it. My mom always told me to act more like a lady. Of course, I would always look at her surprised while sitting on the couch with my legs spread open, eating a bag of chips. I am a classy lady! Just look at me! Okay, I was living in denial. Though I can’t call myself [...]

24 Diversity Strides the Fashion and Beauty Industries Made in 2017

Here’s some good news to start your 2018: Diversity and inclusivity seem to be on the rise — at least in the fashion and beauty realms. In 2017, British Vogue announced its first black editor-in-chief. The 2018 Pirelli Calendar got an all-black cast (as did Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2017 campaign). ELLE made the (long-overdue) announcement that a plus-size model would be gracing its cover and curve model Paloma Elsesser posed in red lipstick and streetwear for Fenty Beauty, then naked [...]

4 Bath + Beauty Brands You’ve Never Heard Of, But Totally Need To Try

This blog post is sponsored by iHerb. All opinions are 100% my own. I’m a beauty product junkie, to say the least.  While I love keeping things green (and affordable!) by making my own, there’s just something to be said for strolling drugstore aisles and tossing new bath and beauty products into my cart. It’s like my childhood shopping spree fantasies come to life. Only as an adult, I get googly eyes for all the natural products, free of chemicals, [...]

Sugar Free January Product Guide

The thing about caramelized brussels sprouts is that they are a) adorable, b) delicious, and c) healthy, because they’re like baby cabbages disguised as beautiful food. On our Washington, D.C. weekend getaway, I found various forms of brussels sprouts on every restaurant menu. Caramelized, roasted, chopped, sauteed, braised, you name it. And obvi, I ordered all of them. But there was only one that really made my heart flutter, and that was the caramelized brussels sprouts. How can a [...]

How to Be Hot: 14 Tips to Revamp and Reveal the Hot and Sexy You

If you’re on Instagram or Facebook, you’re constantly bombarded with images of hot people. But the secret to knowing how to be hot is already inside you. I’m a little biased when it comes to understanding how to be hot. The problem is that everyone’s trying to look like Kim Kardashian. Now, I’m not saying she’s not hot, she’s hot. But that’s only one way to look hot. But since it’s all we see on social media, it’s easy to [...]

10 Played-Out Fashion Trends That Aren’t Invited to 2018

These days, trends rise and fall faster than ever. (Instagram, influencer marketing and Zara have seen to that.) Not that that’s a bad thing. They’re trends. Like iPhones, obsolescence is in their DNA. Each one comes with an expiration (and, in many cases, a renewal) date built into the package. Every year, certain pieces (Gucci sweatshirts, Bernie-Sanders-referencing Balenciaga scarves) rise to stardom, infiltrating our closets and feeds. And then we tire of them, ship ’em off to consignment stores and [...]

Sugar Free January Meal Planning Guide

This is my perfect food. But I have to admit, things didn’t start out so well. In fact, there were a few tears and a lot of vaccuuming after attempt number one: Good bye, new Pyrex baking dish. My self confidence plummeted after these horrendous results. But luckily I have strong determination when it comes to making food with peanut butter, chocolate, and candy. And so I tried again. This time, I used more safe kitchen practices, such as [...]

TND – Slàinte mhòr!

For reasons that escape me, and baffle everyone – myself included – I managed to pass out of teen-hood without having ever read a Diana Gabaldon novel.  This is shocking and bewildering because the Outlander series is exactly the kind of epic historical sprawl that I devoured in high school.  My best guess as to how this situation came to pass is that I read the cover flap, decided that they were all about the Highland Uprising of 1745, [...]
