Ask anyone and they will tell you that I love my curly, red hair. I didn’t used to. As a little girl growing up, I wanted the stick straight, long plaits that all the other girls had. Now as an adult, I love my curls and I appreciate that I am a rare breed. Since only about 2% of the world’s population has red hair, I want to do everything I can to protect my ginger locks.
Even if you’re not a redhead, you should be protecting that lovely hair! So for this month’s spotlight, I am turning to my kitchen for a little extra TLC.
The maxi dress has been in the fashion circuit for so long that it is as classic as the denim jean or leather bomber jacket. These dresses are in it for the duration and all you fashionistas know it. As a girly, dress wearing, style loving fiend, I decided it was time to find the maxi dress that was meant for me!
As I began my search, I realized just how short I am. At 5’2, every dress was swimming on me. It reminded me of the days as a child when I would raid my mom’s closet and try on her clothes.
So what do you do when the maxi dress is taller than you?
Independence Day. The birthday of our great nation. This is a time of celebration. As proud citizens, we break out the grills, crack open the beers, and party like it’s 1776. All I ask of you is that you celebrate in style please!

This summer’s hottest trend has gone tribal. It’s all about the vivid, bold prints and patterns. Everywhere I look, I’m seeing exotic and playful styles. I was determined to jump on this fashion bandwagon, so I got my shopping on for this month’s challenge.
This is the summer of the large, bold print. The designs I am seeing the most, are of course, animal prints. Animal print has been in fashion for decades; I mean who can say no to a great leopard spot or zebra stripe? When it comes to wearing wildlife though, there are a few dos and don’ts to keep in mind.
It’s that time of year again! Stripes and ropes and anchors galore!!
Break out your boating shoes and your white capris because the Nautical theme is back in a big way. Let’s be honest, the stripes and anchors have been around for a long time. So how are designers redefining this seaworthy style?
I headed to the local mall and found some must have designs that answer that very question!
I’ve always been a firm believer in getting the most out of everything. Even my makeup. When I reach the bottom of my lipstick tube, I find myself a makeup wand and scrape out the last bit of color. My eyeshadow no longer makes me shimmer? I create some new nail polishes.
I try to be green and have almost carbon-free footprints. After scouring the interwebs, I found 3 more great ways to get crafty with my leftover makeups! Here is what I learned…
What do you get when you add 2 miles, 1 pair of uncomfortable shoes and 8 hours spent on your feet? Well, I found out the hard way that besides a wrenched ankle and several blisters, you get the strong urge to purge yourself of awful footwear!
