Hairy Business

December 3, 2009


So a week or so ago I was propositioned to do a post on different easy hairstyles to wear during the winter holidays. For some odd reason some of my girlfriends think I know how to do hair:)P After much debating over what styles to choose, a few days spent perfecting my technique (ha!), and [...]

Cooking up to clean up

December 2, 2009


Trying to find products that are healthier, greener alternatives is not always any easy endeavor. Especially when searching for household cleaners that won’t break the bank. I did a little research and found some simple recipes made out of ingredients you can find at your local grocery store that will keep your home and clothes [...]

A little inspiration from the runways…

December 1, 2009

Comments Off

While many of the outfits that walk down the runway would be impossible to wear for most of us, they do provide a good source of inspiration when it comes to our own wardrobes. In particular, I like to observe how certain shapes and pieces are put together as well as what colors are popular [...]

One of the best ways to add interest to an outfit is by incorporating a scarf into the mix. But, it’s easy to get into a “scarf rut” and wear it the same way of simply wrapping it around your neck every day. The following are a few different ways for women and men to [...]

Fare thee well Charlotte

November 28, 2009


Thanksgiving makes me think of pies, and pies make me think of the Pie Maker, which of course makes me think of Pushing Daisies. The show may be gone and off the air, but the brightly colored cinematography and wonderfully retro clothing will not be forgotten. In particular, Charlotte (better known as Chuck) Charles’ wardrobe [...]

November 27, 2009


I asked two of my favorite bloggers, the Cooking Contessas, for some tips on what to do with Thanksgiving leftovers. If you’re anything like me, I end up just reheating the same old stuff until I’ve realized Thanksgiving has become a week long holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 26, 2009


This year has been an amazing one for me. I graduated from college, I got married, and I am starting my own business. While some might find all these changes overwhelming, it’s been nothing but an adventure thus far. And that in itself is what I am thankful for this year. A couple of years [...]

Oh where oh where oh what to wear!

November 25, 2009


I am always torn on what to wear during the holidays. Half of me wants to be as cozy as possible in order to fully enjoy my day off. The other half knows that photos will almost certainly be taken, and I have had enough memories of me looking awkward to last a lifetime. So [...]

Wake up Maggie I think I got something to say to you

November 21, 2009


I love Maggie Gyllenhaal and it’s not just because she shares her face with Jake-y. She has an old Hollywood + New bohemian look about her that she pulls off effortlessly. And on top of that, she has some real talent to boot. I think my favorite role I’ve seen her in so far was [...]

Friday Favorites: theBalm Hot Mama!

November 20, 2009


When your natural color palate is a bit monotone like myself (especially now that I am back to brunette), adding some pigment to your skin with blush makes a world of difference. It has the effect of lighting up your entire complexion, and gives you that sexy “I live life to the fullest so I’m [...]

In honor of the much anticipated New Moon premier, today’s post will help bring out your inner vampire. From different textures of black on black, to pale nude lips and deep sunken eyes, who better to look to for blood thirsty fashion than Marc Jacobs? His Ready to Wear Fall 2009 line is the epitome of [...]
