Cute New Camera Bags For You

camera bag

Some cute new camera bags for you! It’s no secret that traditionally, a functional but cute camera bag has been hard to find.  Until, that is, my rock star friend Maile created Epiphanie Bags, a line of gorgeous camera bags, because the need was there (big time) and she’s a genius. I’ve owned an Epiphanie camera bag for over 5 years and I love everything about it.  It’s stylish and utilitarian, and sometimes I use it for a purse without…

Shellac Nails

Shellac Nails

Do you know what my favorite beauty tricks are? Low-maintenance ones. So, concerning the love and care that nice-looking nails require, I often come up short – literally. I am a notorious nail-biter. Sometimes it’s absent minded, other times it’s stress related, but either way the only time I really seem to kick the horrible habit is when my nails are painted. Nail-painting itself is not an easy endeavor, and common polish always chips off your hands within days (and yet,…

How to Rock a Sale

Sale Shopping Bras

If your summer plans include hitting up every great sale that comes along, it’s time you had some training. Might sound silly, but trust me, if you go into a sale with a plan and a purpose, you come out at the other end quicker, happier, and significantly less broke. Let’s eighty-six the buyer’s remorse, mmkay? There are too many summer “blow-outs” to keep track of, but a personal favorite of mine is the “Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual” which is happening…

While it may be intimidating to try and master yet another hair tool, I have to say, this one is so worth it.

Here’s how to get the look: I like to curl my hair in 3 layers, so let’s start with the bottom layer. Holding the curling wand…

Daily Routine For A Healthy Life

Daily Routine Healthy Life

A daily routine has become a thing for me, in the last 6 months.  We all do some of the same stuff daily, like go to work, drop kids off at school or daycare, or even a daily trip to the gym.  But I’ve been working really, really, super hard on having almost the same routine every single day, including weekends.  Because what I realized in all my actively-getting-healthier business is that routine, simple daily routine, makes my life a…

Cleanse Your Face and Cleanse Your Life

Cleanse Your Face and Cleanse Your Life

My face has endured a fair amount of abuse in its 37 years on the planet, some of which has even been caused by me. I had gorgeous skin as a child and teenager, and like most gifts, I took it for granted until the day it turned on me in my late 20’s. It happens all the time. And now, as a conscientious nearly-40-year-old woman, I’m doing a lot of work not only to cleanse my face, but to…
