Makeup Tips for Girls Who Wear Glasses

Jennifer Aniston in glasses

I have worn glasses for several years, and I only started wearing makeup within the past seven years or so. I was a bit of a tomboy when I was younger, and only played with makeup from time to time. But the dilemma I face now is how to wear eye makeup that doesn’t make me look like I’m hiding two black eyes behind my glasses. When my nieces were younger, I would watch them as they applied their eye makeup, even though they are naturally beautiful and don’t need makeup. They carefully lined their eyes with kohl black eyeliner […]

Wanderlust Wednesday: Bali

Since “Eat Pray Love” came out in 2010, starring Julia Roberts as author Elizabeth “Liz” Gilbert, I have wanderlusted over the Indonesian island of Bali. The beauty of this island, as Julia Roberts rode around on her bicycle, drew me in from the very beginning. In March of this year, Bali was named the world’s top travel destination by TripAdvisor in it’s Traveler’s choice award. “Bali is a living postcard, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy. Soak up the sun on a stretch of fine white sand, or commune with the tropical creatures as you dive along coral […]

Woman of Style: Nina Garcia

I have never seen a bad photo of Nina Garcia, who, if you don’t already know, is the Creative Director of Marie Claire Magazine and a Project Runway judge. This Columbian fashion journalist has an enviable style, and she shares her style tips in each of her four books. And in honor of New York Fashion Week, I decided to make her this month’s “Woman of Style.” Garcia began her career in the fashion industry in the early 1980s. She worked in the public relations department for Perry Ellis and its then-designer, Marc Jacobs. On September 2, 2008, she began her new position […]

But with the official start of Fall less than three weeks away, now is the time to check out the trends that were all over the runway and see how you can incorporate them into your every day style this Fall. 1. 3-D Flowers, like the Ivanka Trump beaded 3D-floral dress. Or the stunning white wedding dress from Marchesa (even though this is from the Spring and not the Fall, this dress would be perfect for a sunny Fall wedding day). […]

Woman of Style: Julia Roberts

With her trademark smile, Julia Roberts burst onto the scene as Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman, and she hasn’t looked back. The two films I remember seeing her in before her Pretty Woman fame was Satisfaction (1988) and Mystic Pizza (1988). Julia Roberts once said about her success, “I’m just a girl from a little town in Georgia who had this giant, absurd dream.” (Source: IMDb) She played clarinet in the band in school and after graduating from high school, left Georgia for New York to become an actress. Well, this girl from the little town of Symrna, Georgia, has done some pretty amazing things […]
