Everything and More

Here’s the truth guys…I’ve never owned anything in bouclé. I’ve never really wanted to. That is until I saw this Lane Bryant Long Boucle Vest By Otis. Turns out there is a first time for everything. This piece is just another beautiful design from their recent collaboration with the students of Otis College of Art and Design. From the mandarin collar, much appreciated pockets, subtle silver shimmer, and midi length—this vest is everything and more.…

Inside the GRAMMY Gift Lounge

To say I’m just a fan of music is a little bit of an understatement. I think music is necessary for me to function. It’s that serious. I love so many genres and eras of music, I just can’t settle on one. I guess I’m kind of like the GRAMMYs—I appreciate them all. And as you know, the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards® will air on February 15th and I was invited to check out the…

If you’re a Lane Bryant fan, you may have heard of their recent collaboration with the students of Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. They worked with a group of 12 students to put together a versatile sportswear collection. The second this limited edition collection dropped, I knew there were some pieces I had to get my hands on—like the Asymmetrical Drape-Back Jacket. It was the first piece to catch my eye.…

Osmosis Skincare's Hydralift Firming Gel Mask

Giveaway Osmosis Skincare Hydralift Firming Gel Mask (Closed)

As I sat down to write this post, I started thinking about skin types and how each of us is so different from the next. You might have oily skin and the person sitting next to you might have dry skin. I’m the one with combination skin. Then I started thinking about skin care routines and how that varies too. Even though we might differ in these areas, I’m pretty sure we all have the…

Feeling Natori-ously Sexy

Sponsored by Natori. Feeling sexy is truly a state of mind. No matter what I’m wearing, who I’m with, or where I’m going—it all starts inside. It’s not only about being confident, it’s about being able to love myself for all that I am. For me, this is the core of where it all begins. I do know that each one of us is different and my idea of sexy, might not be yours. I…

When Life Decides to Shift

I’m having a major self-realization moment right now. It’s like I can feel my life shifting around, if that makes sense. Yes, it’s because I’m getting older and hopefully wiser. All I want, more than anything, is to live a kinder, balanced, and happier life. It sounds a lot easier than it has been. For the past few months I have been struggling with my inner self. It has nothing to do with welcoming in…

5 Ways to Bring Your Wardrobe Back to Life

For those of us who love fashion and the art of getting dressed every day, there’s nothing worse than a fashion slump. That moment when you hate everything in your closet and claim to have nothing to wear. Never mind the fact that you have way too many clothes. I’ve been there and I know about half of us are there right now. So, what can we do without spending money? I put together five…

Fancy in Formalwear with K Couture

Sponsored by K Couture. Formalwear is one of those things that no one really thinks about until they need it. Like maybe for a wedding or a special occasion. I know I don’t have a formal gown sitting in my closet waiting to be worn. And if I did, it probably wouldn’t be exactly what I wanted or it would fit funny. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could just jump online and design your…
