Posted on May. 3, 2016

If you've been anywhere near a Sephora, or the Internet for that matter, then you've probably seen the trend in skincare - oil cleansing. Immediately, it sounds like an oxymoron. Oil registers with many as greasy, dirty, and lest not forget the worst adjective for skin, shiny, which you may as well equate to a four-letter word. So what's the deal? 

Washing your face with oil instead of water actually has a host of benefits. It doesn't strip your skin of as many nutrients, it leaves it more moisturized, and can double as a make-up remover. Oil...

Style: Ageless in Sequins

Posted on Apr. 12, 2016

I became a mom and shopping was never the same. I now ask myself questions like, "Is this skirt too short?" and won't even attempt to try on a lace top without putting a camisole underneath. However, no matter how old I feel, I'll never have to second guess my love for sequins. Whether scattered on a skirt or sewn onto an entire dress (who can forget Naomi Watts's breathtaking Oscar dress pictured below),...
