Rent the Runway

Every fashionista has dreams of wearing haute couture and heck maybe even strutting their stuff down the runway. While walking down a runway scares the bejesus out of me, I wouldn’t mind a pair of Heidi’s legs.  And those clothes? Forget about it! I have had the pleasure of being subjected to fashion week and been so close (as in the ….

The “Phenomenon” of Chinese Medicine Cupping

 “Acupuncture and cupping, more than half of the ills cured.” ~ Chinese proverb I admit I got a good chuckle the other night watching the Olympics. The topic on every commentators mouth seemed to be cupping. As swimmers dove through the waters, you could see the circular marks baring colors on their backs almost like tattoos except these are far less ….

Some Clarisonic Love

So a year ago after much advertising persuading and really twisting my arm, I caved and bought a Clarisonic. Why oh why did I not buy this sooner?!?! Seriously! It was Christmas come to town. It was who the hell needs a boyfriend when I have this? It was love and if you try to steal it I will go ….

The Anti-Social Shopper

One of the first things I got when I moved to the city was, “You must shop a ton!” Actually nope. I do not. First and foremost a thing called rent and food come first, especially when I first moved there and was living on soup and shitty coffee and my apartment was a hell hole. It was not the “Welcome to ….

The shoulders are getting their day in the sun. Who cares about toned biceps or midriff baring tops? It is the sexy sassy shoulders hey day. // Hat and shirt: ….

We Will Rise

“I’ve always seen the Olympics as a place where you could act out your differences on the athletic field with a sense of sportsmanship and fairness and mutual respect.” ~ Andrew Young “I’ve realized the extraordinary power of sports to heal, unite and inspire. I believe the Olympics will serve as the ultimate platform to provide positive changes and I ….

The Art of a Good Under Pinning

“Who needs a handbag? I put my money in my bra.” ~ Neneh Cherry    Under pinings (I love that old fashioned word) Get a raw rap. Whether it is bras, spanx, or underwear, it is a subject that can be considered taboo. Yet, our under garments are probably the most important things we put on. While we can’t see ….

Raise Your Glass to National Lipstick Day!

“I always have to have my lipstick. Sometimes I have more than one shade: start with one color for the morning, one for night. Sometimes I have a couple shades just in case I need something more powerful for the day.” ~ L’Wren Scott Thanks to social media it seems the world celebrates daily ostentatious and outrageous objects. While I ….
