“There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.”
Every year dating back to the early 1900′s, the entire world observes March 8 as International Women’s Day. As a result of this, there have been numerous, significant movements (specifically on this day) that grant women more freedom, equality, and recognition. Check out the full time line and specific events here.
Most women have different personal preferences when it comes to how they groom their body hair. The trendy styles have been changing all the way back to the Renaissance (check out this article to learn more.) As for me? I prefer a hairless bod.
So I did it- I finally did it.
I went for my first session of laser hair removal and I survived! I am living to tell the story!
Here in NYC we all know a thing or two about small apartment living and we could all use some design tips to maximize our space. (Refinery29)
One of our favorite blogs went to DC for the Oscars. What took place was pure beauty bliss. (PrettyConnected)
Congrats to another one of our favorite bloggers, Gregorie Guillaume of Hue Knew It, who was just named CocoBlogger of the Month! (Cocotique)
On Sunday night, my eyes were peeled to the screen as actors and actresses graced the red carpet with their prescence. Even though they all may not have walked away with an Oscar, these actresses made a serious impression.
I absolutely love the way Margot Robbie pulled together this look so seemlessly, but it is mostly the hair that I am pining over. With such effortless glamour, Margot almost makes you believe that she woke up looking this way.
Disclaimer: I must warn the squeamish or easily terrified to look away. Below is a somewhat disturbing photo.
My skin has been a little out of whack recently thanks to the weather, hormones, and insufficient water intake. The issue? A lackluster complexion and an overall tired appearance. I tried exfoliating at home and amping up my daily skin care routine, but there was still something off. I knew I needed the help of a professional.
Happy Makeup-Free Monday! Experience the freedom and embrace the beauty of a fresh face!
I’ll show you mine if you show me yours!
Still shaking in your boots at the thought of steeping out sans makeup? Check out this celebrity before and after for a little encouragement. Today’s feature: Sofia Vergara
It amazes me how much the weather can affect my mood! Trudging through the wet snow and slush has not exactly uplifted me, but when I walked out of my apartment this morning, I thought I heard all of heaven singing! The mild, clear air wrapped around me, the sun was shining on my face, and the sound of singing birds filled the sky. All of a sudden, I was inspired, refreshed, and ready to take on the day!
Happy day after National Wine Day! Who says wine needs to be celebrated only one day a year?! Interested in some characteristics other than wine’s delicious flavor, I turned to Marta Wohrle, founder of TruthInAging.com for a little encouragement (as if I needed it) to pour myself a glass – or two – without a thought of calories or an ounce of guilt. I am sure you’ll be happy to learn more about this multifaceted beverage, so grab your favorite vino and pull up a chair as Marta weighs in on ways wine can make you beautiful.
You may think that you already know how to shovel, and maybe you do, but are you doing it the right way? The huge storm that hit us yesterday left a lot of heavy wet snow and slush (thanks to the snow, rain, snow changeover.) This is the most difficult precipitation to clean up, and could leave you frozen in pain with one incorrect twist of the back or small slip on that hidden patch of ice. Instead of focusing on what could go wrong, let’s talk about what precautions to take.
All of this snow pummeling our city this winter has inspired me to take on a few DIY projects. I have found IKEA products the best to work with because they are fairly non-descript, and at such an affordable price, you don’t have to worry about suffering a huge loss if your “before” looks better than your “after.” These awesome links provide fool proof step by step instructions so you can personalize your living space with flare. Check out three of my favorite IKEA Hacks and try one out!
