Sunglasses and Getting the Right Style

With spring in full force, it’s time to break out your sunglasses. Unfortunately, not all sunglasses are created equal.

Winter is the perfect time to try plum lipstick. There are plenty of ways to be daring in this life, and if you’re not planning that grand and defiant uprising (yet), I would suggest utilizing the not-so-extreme but just-as-gratifying place for rebellion: make-up. Though there are an estimated ba-zillion ways to make a statement with the inky, powdery magic of liners and brushes to the face, let’s talk about one. Lipstick. Plum lipstick. Since there is nothing “more articulate than…
