What a Good Manicure Taught Me

It’s amazing what a good manicure can do for you. I like to go to this little place in Studio City called La Flora Nails. The place is small with no bells or whistles, but they give the best manicures I’ve ever had. Usually when I leave a place, I have cuts or some hang nails because of the aggression that the nail technician took out on my cuticles, even when I tell them that my skin is really delicate…

Life’s Too Short, Put on Your Good Jeans

It’s funny how some things that you were told as a kid stays with you for life. Then you spend your adult life trying to unlearn those things. I grew up with the idea that nice things should be saved for a special occasion.  Those pretty, new, shiny shoes shouldn’t be worn until it was a special occasion and even then, don’t get them dirty or god forbid a scratch on them. Yesterday when I woke up, I looked at…

Things I Want to Try for Spring

There’s so many new trends out this spring and here are three that i’m dying to try. The new printed denim trend. I love it on the models, but can I pull it off? I need more color in my life and a blazer would go great with my gray, black, and white tanks. Not sure how i’ll achieve this look on my own, but I love it and my hair is long enough. 

Dating and Shoes

“Momma always says there’s an awful lot you could tell about a person by their shoes. Where they’re going. Where they’ve been.” – Forest Gump That Forest was a real smart man. I like to live my life a little by this quote. There’s a lot of truth to it. You might say that I’m judging a book by its cover, but honestly, most of us do So why not put our best “shoe” forward? You really can tell a…

Bride’s Maid Dresses. To Be, or Not To Be.

I know most brides say this, but I really do want my bride’s maids to wear their dresses again. I know It’s like almost impossible to pick a dress that everyone will like and look good in. I’ve been a bride’s maid 4 times now and I’ve never worn the dress again.  Thank God the brides had good taste and I looked good in the dresses they choose, but I still never wore the dress again. I am determined to…

Lesson Learned: I’m not Super Woman

            I may have been pushing myself too hard. As I write this, I’m still sniffling and feeling under the weather. Last week I started off strong. I was working out 2-3 times a day, eating extremely clean (looking back I might have not had enough calories for the amount of exercise I was doing), I was getting stuff done and even writing 2 blogs in one week, double my goal. Well I’m paying for it…

Dress yourself to Happiness… Seriously

I’m dedicating this post to 3 things that I think should be applied to your everyday clothing choices. My weeks are filled with ups and downs and recently there have been a lot fewer downs in between the ups. Looking back I can say that therapy, exercise, diet, and creating a consistent schedule for me has to do with it, but I also think applying all the changes I’ve made inside to the out also helps more than anyone ever…

Budget Doesn’t Mean Cheap

Sometimes I wish I had all the money in the world to do whatever I want to and buy anything my heart desires. Even though I fantasize about having an expendable income to buy all my favorite designers all the time at full price without blinking, I have to stop and think; would it lessen its value to me? Would I look at my Chanel the same way I look at my coach bags? Would I treat my Louboutin heels…
