Personalize Your iPhone Case…With Tape?

My mom always jokes that I’m an 80-year-old woman (no disrespect!) stuck in a 22-year-old body and, to an extent, I don’t disagree. I’m all about DIY projects and crafting unique, adorable items I find online through completely random blogs. I get bored pretty quickly after having the same nail color on for more than a week, keeping the same phone case on for months, etc. Example: I bought a new iPhone case three days ago and I’m already done with it.

Look out for a cool and simple DIY iPhone case that no one else will have after the jump! (more…)

So You Want to Be a New Yorker? Read This!

You want be a Carrie Bradshaw, Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf or whatever overly dramatic character from Glee that’s living the glamorous life in the city. Take it from a relatively new New Yorker – it’s not like that. Granted my life is full of dramatic, fantastic, unexplainable events worthy of a Lifetime movie (lookout for the premiere in 30 years) but it’s still mostly UN-glamorous. (more…)

Cue the Wrath of Heels in 3, 2, 1…

Let’s face it, women go through many obstacles in life that men will never have to endure. You’ve planned a tropical getaway and before you leave for the airport you get a visit from your oh-so-timely monthly friend. Or, the day has finally came to give birth to that little baby that has been using your womb and body as its mansion for, ya know, the last nine months. No big deal, right? Women get through these things every day. There is, however, one obstacle no woman will ever get over…unless you’re Victoria Beckham. (more…)

10 Things to Try to Look Like You’re Not Trying

Effortless – my favorite word, style and attitude. The secret to happiness and all good things in life is, to simply put it, “give no f**ks.”  I mean think about the ideal woman, a Victoria’s Secret model, and the ideal man, James Bond. Granted the Victoria’s Secret models weigh about as much as the average 12 year old and have legs that go on for months, and Bond looks phenomenal in a suit and always has a perfectly chiseled jaw line. It’s the element of not caring or trying to be cool that makes them both SO cool.

The VS model with her seemingly not styled, messy, tousled bedhead and soft smokey eyes walking around in her lingerie in front of an audience with a flirty smile as if it were any other day and not the average person’s nightmare. Then there’s Bond getting into to fist fights on top of trains, dangling from the sides of buildings and slipping out of every predicament and into the next without breaking a sweat and keeping a monotone, unamused voice. The ultimate Mr. Cool.

Regardless if you fall into the mainstream standards or follow the beat of your own drummer, as long as you carry yourself as if you’re proud and no one is watching, you can get away with anything.

Here are 10 things to try to look like you’re NOT trying: (more…)
