Because it’s Wednesday & We All Need Hump Day Inspiration

YouTube Preview Image

This morning as I was driving into work this song by Baz Luhrmann came on the radio. I haven’t heard it since high school and it instantly brought a smile to my tired face.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen, here’s a little background: In 1997, columnist Mary Schmich wrote an essay for the Chicago Tribune giving much-needed life advice to youths. The advice from this famous essay serve as the lyrics to Luhrmann’s song.

Take an extra five minutes out of your day to listen to this song. It’s some of the best life advice I’ve ever heard. Of course, never take anything for granted. I hope this gets you through the rest of your workweek.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

10 Hats to Keep You Looking Cool (If You’re Losing Your Hair)

Eugenia Kim Disclaimer: This post is not meant to be offensive. A dear friend of mine was just diagnosed with cancer.

I went through a strange roller coaster of emotion. Another close friend (who I will refer to as ‘the informer’) was the one who shared the news with me.  On a regular night out I received text messages from her reading: “When was the last time you talked to so and so? I don’t know what to say….” Of course my immediate assumption was: “DEATH! He died! Omg omg omg why??! No this can’t be!” (more…)

Choosing the Right Eyeshadow for Your Eye Color

Eye makeup has a major influence in enhancing the beauty of a women’s face. Choosing the right eyeshadow shade to complement your eye color can really make your eyes pop and stand out. You need to choose shades that bring out your natural color and not diminish it. The key to this is the color wheel.

Make Sure You’re Wearing Your Leggings the Right Way

We love leggings, jeggings, and all that stretchy goodness. They’re far more comfortable than any pair of those constricting skinny jeans that we have been magically able to squeeze into. Sometimes not so gracefully with the classic wide leg squat and jump, with fingers gripping  belt loops upward for dear life maneuver, wondering when would be the day we’d rip one off. Then we’d disguise muffin tops and became pros at sucking in our gut that it became second nature and we actually convinced ourselves we were that skinny. That is, until we got home peeled our jeans off and caught a glimpse of ourselves in the mirror as we exhaled. Ugh. (more…)

To Make Your Thursday Better: Mean Girls Meets Disney

As I was reading my daily dose of Cupcakes and Cashmere I came across this amazing YouTube video of the Disney Princesses “acting out” the preview to Mean Girls. I’m sure as with most girls, there are two things in life that are a necessity:

  1. 1. Quoting Mean Girls on a daily basis
  2. 2. Feeling as if you have a personal relationship with every Disney Princess because, of course, we grew up together. For the record, Belle and Jasmine are my two favorite!

I may be late to the game in seeing this amazing video, but I had to share anyway. After all, nothing is better than Mean Girls and Disney Princesses!

Who’s your favorite Disney Princess?

Note to Self: Put On Your Big Girl Panties.

Dear ladies (and some European men):

Pay attention. Recall your routine as you prepare for a typical day. Your hair, face, outfit, shoes and accessories are all on point. There’s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didn’t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staring…talking about “it.” “It” is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)
