What to Wear, Watch, Listen, Read, Shop, Sweat…

Read: Allure, covered by the mesmerizing Zoe Kravitz, demystifying the secrets of Italy’s Umbrian clay, and suggesting we all bottom…where lashes are concerned. Wear: Silks, Satins, lustrous light flowing fabrics and accessories that have a sinful sheen…especially for men.  I had these new, tagged, unworn striped and monogram Just Cavalli shirts and peace-sign Moschino bell-bottom jeans…

Fit for Free

Whether you’re a student, a struggling artist, a confessed shopaholic, or just strapped for cash- you don’t have to spend to shed pounds. What? No meal plans, gym memberships, books, expensive food? Yes! Believe it or not…I’ve usually worked out in-home or outdoors for free. See my previous post on my fitness routine and weightloss:…

Hard-Water’s Effect on Hair and Skin

In my previous post, H2-Oh-No: Hard Water Irritates Skin!, I discussed how hard-water had affected my skin.  After noticing and hypothesizing over patches of inflamed flushed areas all over my body, doing some research, and self-diagnosing, I concluded I did not have a sudden bout of eczema, but rather hard-water dermatitis.

All Types of Diets and Tips for Weightloss

Diet Bloat Effect 

Mistakes I’ve been making in diet were brought to my awareness when I tuned in to The Dr. Oz Show today.  I eat eggs every morning, and make an omelette occasionally and this is honestly an indulgence I enjoy- a thin slice of Sargento cheddar, onions, and ketchup- say what you will, but that sounds…

Celebrity Fitness: Star Quality

Celebs cover fitness mags accross the board: Ryan Reynolds on Men’s Health, Kate Hudson on Self, and Jaimie Alexander on Shape.  Stars known for their bodies, fitness, health and diet often cover fitness magazines more than fitness gurus and models.  Studies show people trust attractive people, and because these are familiar faces of presumed healthy…
