Let’s face the truth. We have more clothes than we need. Our wardrobes are overflowing with items that we rarely wear. Some garments are old and dear, and we cannot find the courage to let them go. Others are forgotten and stored so far back into the closet that we never wear them. Regardless of the reason, we end up with more than we can wear. The clutter and overly packed wardrobes weigh us down, robbing us of our time and energy.

The good news is we are in charge, and we have the power to turn things around. The…


I will share a secret with you — I hate washing and blow drying my hair . Do not get me wrong, and I do wash my hair twice a week. But even then, I rarely spend time styling it. As I get ready to head out, I dread the minute when I need to make a decision about my hair. I still want to look put together, but I do not want to spend hours styling my hair. So I came up with a few options that require little time yet deliver maximum impact.

Overalls were never in my wardrobe until now. For me, overalls were associated with junior fashions, something a grown woman should not be wearing. But as it often happens in life, our tastes change, preferences adjust, and we tend to like the things we used to hate. Life is tricky this way.

So I got my first pair of overalls made with 100% linen, bright red color. They looked terrific paired with deep yellow marigold cropped top. …

The casual chic outfits include a dash of practical like jeans, tees, sneakers. And a dash of posh like a classic blazer, chic dress, classic skirt, or delicate blouse.

When I think of Fashion Icons, Audrey Hepburn immediately comes to mind. Her elegant classical looks transcend decades, cultures, and trends. Her famous black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the fashion moment we all strive to experience. What is Audrey’s secret? And is it possible to learn it?

Audrey’s Secret

There is probably not one single item that is solely responsible for Audrey’s exquisite style. To imitate her elegance, taste, and touch, we need to think beyond a single outfit or a hair-do. We need to step back to take in the full breadth of Audrey’s presence. …

No matter the season, no matter location, and no matter the weather — sunscreen is the must-have essential that has to be applied daily. Unfortunately, very often, sunscreen is an afterthought. We apply it after we arrived at the beach or a football game. Many of us do not realize how much damage the Sun has done until it is too late. Our skin turned the bright red color that later turns into a sad wrinkly version of itself, and the skin cells’ DNA is permanently damaged.

We must take the application of a sunblock seriously. The daily routine needs…

I cannot wait for warmer days and beautiful cool evenings when I can finally stroll down the street in a bright dress, summer hat, and cute sandals. The simple fact that the weather is changing brings so much joy to my heart. I am ready to shed my winter layers, worries, and fears. And for a moment, think positively about what comes next and what I can achieve. For me, wearing clothes that make me happy is the first step in ensuring that I got the energy to move forward no matter what.

Spring and summer looks are not simply…

“The Most Effective” is the most coveted phrase on every cream, lotion, and serum. Every brand is trying to convince a potential buyer about its highly potent and effective moisturizer. While we might be skeptical about “The Most Effective” moisturizer, we do rely on the brand’s words. We also perform essential due diligence and read reviews hoping we are investing money in the right product. Unfortunately, since most of us are not estheticians, we do not know why certain ingredients are in, what they do, and how they interact with our skin.

Let’s talk about Spring’s hottest trends! What are the top trending pieces? What should we buy? And most importantly, what makes sense to buy?

As our lives are stabilizing, some of us are heading back to work, while others are still isolated working from home. And yet, all of us are hoping never to hear the word “zoom-site” again. Many states have opened dining, shopping, allowed to gather in public spaces and participate in sports. We are eager to get out of sweats and PJs to enjoy the colorful and exciting life outside our homes.

Close your eyes and imagine a fashion show. Beautiful gowns are floating down the runway, models in suits are powerfully striding forward, and each model is full of confidence and style. The beautiful clothes are the centerpieces, but how they are presented is also a crucial factor. Each model walks with confidence, holding her posture upright with an open chest, pulled back shoulders, and head held high. The posture and presentation are as important as what is being presented.

Putting a fantastic outfit together is an art form, but wearing it with confidence requires another skill set. Some of us…
