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?

How I lost Over 30lbs for Spring & Summer

I lost over 30lbs for spring and summer: no gym, no starving, no deprivation- just caloric intake and working out at home. The real secret? Pole fitness- yes, pole dancing. My friend took me to a class and I’ve been hooked on this core-targeting exercise ever since.
