7 Style Tips for Surfer Girls

7 Style Tips for Surfer Girls: So, how does a surf betty manage style and safety? Balancing my innate sense of responsibility (something that hit me so hard and so suddenly when I was around 27) with my intrinsic desire to be a beach bum requires some creative strategies.

A long long time ago, my friends and I used to lay out on the beach lathered in baby oil, baking like chicken fingers, hunting a golden brown. I remember the days when going to the beach felt less complicated. The sun wasn’t the enemy. Beer and surfing seemed like a fine match. These days, …

17 Tiny Bathrooms That Inspire Smart Design

The biggest thing in home design right now is tiny houses. Tiny homes seem to be the result of today's wellness trend. A tiny home lifestyle subscribes to simplicity, sustainability and cleverness. However, learning to live in a small space is nothing new. Apartments, RVs, studios, trailers, just simply having too many folks in the family have been inspiring the tiny home lifestyle for generations. One of the most frustrating elements of a modest home is the bathroom, which tends be one of the smallest rooms in the house, susceptible to the use of all family members and guests. When your husband needs the sink to shave, your daughter needs the toilet, and you haven't even brushed your teeth yet, a small bathroom can turn into a disaster. But with a bit of clever design, a tiny bathroom can be practical and lovely.

A tiny home lifestyle subscribes to simplicity, sustainability and cleverness. However, learning to live in a small space is certainly nothing new. Apartments, RVs, studios, cottages, trailers, …

How to Wear High Top Sneakers with Style: Starring Cara Delevingne

I had no interest in fashion when I was younger. I was such a tomboy." The super model and film star, Cara Delevingne once said these words. Because Delevingne began her career with modeling (including for the very feminine and sexy lingerie line, Victoria's Secret), it's a surprising comment. However, once you take a quick glance at her natural street style, it's easy to see that she is innately a tom boy, a sassy and sparkly one.

The Woman Behind the Red Gloss: Marilyn Monroe, The Business Owner

Impressively, before her early death at 36, Monroe got the chance to produce and act in her own two films after she founded Marilyn Monroe Productions with her photographer friend, Milton Greene. Finally free from her strict and sleezey contract with Fox, Monroe could choose her own roles and design her own movies. Without the obligation to please directors and colleagues, MM Productions made Bus Stop, which many critics claim to be her strongest role, and The Prince and The Showgirl

So few know about the woman behind the red gloss. I forget that to most she is a sex symbol for the male gaze. When I describe Marilyn Monroe as one of my biggest heroes, people get confused like seagulls trying to decipher bread crumbs from plastic.  Unbeknownst to the many that continue to sexualize her, …

16 Very Merry Nail Art Design Ideas

Today, we don't associate red nails with power as much as we do with Coca Cola and Christmas. Nail art design is now accessible to more than just the royals. There's equal opportunity for nail expression, and the holidays warmly offer opportunity to paint your nails ruby red. This is the season for sparkles, pine, deep blue, white and red.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Exfoliating Peel Spray Review

The most outlandish promise Juice Beauty makes is with its product, Stem Cellular Exfoliating Peel Spray. Part of the Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Collection, the Exfoliating Peel Spray advertises a seemingly impossible result: [the peel spray] instantly exfoliates to uncover smoother, younger-looking skin after just one use...skin appears plumped, decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles." It also claims to improve luminosity with Vitamin C, visibly brighten, restore with fruit stem cells and renew with a reserveratol-rich grapeseed base.

Lately, I’ve been frightened by purchasable skin care. I’ve recently learned that your skin absorbs more than sixty percent of what you put on it.
