Duchamp’s Answering Machine – best colors ever 1. I completed Couch to 5K earlier this week. (Ran 3 miles without stopping at a 10:30-minute mile pace. Woo!) So, in honor of that little achievement, I posted a newbie’s running guide at Babble. It barely scrapes the surface of things I would like to talk about […]
1. Drumroll, please! The winner of a fabulous pair of Salt Optics frames is #40, Jenna. Congratulations, Jenna! You will be rocking some frames very shortly. 2. Last night, I attended the launch of Wendy Bellissimo’s new line of clothing and accessories for children. I die. The end. (I also stood next to Sharon Osbourne […]
1. Operation Peony Lim is in full effect over here. My hair is approaching chest level, and I keep looking at photos of her for inspiration. photo credit: Citizen Couture 2. Speaking of hair, have you checked out Hair Thursday lately? Go ahead, take a look. TADA! Hair Thursday is no longer its own website […]
I looooooove me some beauty and hair tutorials, peeps. Here’s the deal. Let me help you. Don’t waste your time weeding through thousands of videos because I’ve done all the (hours upon hours of YouTube viewing) work for you. Eyeliner woes? Check. Chic, everyday makeup? Check. Braided updos and sock buns? Trimming your own bangs? […]
Hello, lovely ladies (and gents)! Just wanted to give you a heads up that I’m guest editing the Style United Facebook page for the next couple of weeks. Stop by and check out my very favorite hair, makeup, and fashion tips!
I love Whoorlita’s hair. It’s finely-textured, perfectly straight and has the loveliest natural highlights. However, it’s been looking a little, um, straggly lately. Case in point. Sweet little toddler mullet. If you don’t mind, let’s digress and briefly chat about the photo on the right. You see, as Wita approaches her 2nd birthday, it seems […]
1. I just finished up my Pantene commercial behind the scenes series at Hair Thursday, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t leave out a single detail. Part one here. Part two here. Part three here. Part four here. Phew! 2. I’m drooling over my new Joy the Baker cookbook. What do I make first? Banana […]
Have you all heard of Fat Mum Slim and Pantene’s Photo-a-Day Collaboration? Obviously, I’m a fan of Fat Mum Slim’s Instagram challenges, and I think I might need to join this one a day late. The best part about this particular photo challenge is that it leads up to April 27th, when Pantene and Seventeen […]
Part one here. Part two here. Part three here. I know, I know. Don’t cry for me, Argentina. My behind-the-scenes series is coming to end. (Wait, are those tears of sadness or utter relief that you don’ t have to read this stuff anymore?) So we’ve covered the fitting, the sleepless night beforehand, the 5:45 […]
I don’t think I’ll ever see the day when I’ll be able to post a video tutorial without cringing the moment I hit publish. You are your own worst enemy, right? So you can imagine how excited I get when I see photos of you all rocking the latest hair tutorials. Here are some great […]
Part one here. Part two here. Let’s just rename this post to The Swish. Isn’t that what it’s all about? The infamous hair swish. You guys, I did a lot of swishing. A LOT OF SWISHING. Like, approximately 3 hours of non-stop swishing. Here’s how it went down. I stood on a specific spot in […]
We’re in the thick of deep side part mania right now, so I figured I would put together a Style United tutorial on the easiest ways to wear one. These three styles build upon each other, so you can wear one or all. The first hairstyle is a modern take on the Veronica Lake look […]
Here’s another segment I shot for Yahoo’s The Thread about fashion and beauty etiquette from the 20s through the 50s. The REAL reason I want to show you this is that I totally took your advice during my No Shopping Challenge weak moment in January. (Thank you!) The majority of you all told me to […]
Part One here. I woke up the morning of the shoot around 5:00am. Actually, I think it would be more accurate to say that I got out of bed at 5:00am. After getting a taste of the size and scope of the commercial the day before, my nerves got the best of me overnight. I […]
