Petal power

“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Miranda Priestley said it best in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, but as cliché as it might be, florals have always been and remain one of the greatest inspirations for spring fashion and beauty trends. Their colors, their textures, their scent all work together to inspire our wardrobe choices and beauty looks.

Dealing with belligerent kids

Parents know all too well that kids are experts at pushing our buttons – talking back, refusing to mind, picking fights with their siblings – at precisely those moments when we’re at our most stressed.

Girls just wanna have fun

Since this issue is all about getting saucy, we are here to help you spice up your wardrobe for a girl's night out. Going out for an evening with the gals can be as low-key or as dressy as you want, but we think it's always a good idea to have a little fun with it. Since a group of women's styles can vary from all degrees of glam to casual, it's nice to have options for every kind of outing. If your plans are for more of a relaxed get together, a cool graphic tee, cute pair of flats, and a lip gloss with a slight hint of sparkle are all excellent choices. If you're going for a theme, we love a good 90's throw back. Items like an updated bodysuit, an edgy leather moto jacket, and a simple black choker scream Kelly Taylor (hey there 90210 fans!). Or if you want more of a modern-day fashionista look, channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with an ultra-feminine tulle skirt. To make a bit of a bolder statement, a silk fuchsia duster is a vibrant way to jazz up some jeans. Link up your pop of pink with a beautiful Burgundy hued eyeshadow palette for an ultimate punch of color. If taking the girls dancing, a sparkly pair of sequin pants are a glitzy way to catch the light. A one shouldered jumpsuit also screams “Ladies Night”, as does a little black dress complete with fringe detailing.

Jarrett's Joy Cart

Jennifer Mynear knew her son Jarrett was special from a young age. Though she had always known he was smart, she first saw his rare fearlessness at age 2. After he was diagnosed with an aggressive bone cancer at age 2, she and her husband Doug took him to an orthopedic surgeon to discuss amputating his lower right leg.

Comic relief

For LaRonda Clay, the hardest part about comedy was getting up the nerve to do it in the first place. She had waffled about doing amateur night at Comedy Off Broadway for months, but in March 2010, she finally found the courage to get up on stage. Her husband Phillip encouraged her and helped her to have the confidence to pull it off.

Spreading joy this holiday season

As holiday time rolls around, kids invariably start to think about their gift wish lists. And while there’s no denying the joy of ripping into a freshly wrapped present on Christmas morning, the season is also about giving — and the joy that brings as well.

Glitter all the way

The Christmas holiday season is always filled with joy and merriment, and that should be reflected in what you wear. With parties, dinners and events going in full swing, there is no better time to dress up and look your best. Our favorite element of the holidays is without question, the sparkle of it all. While many of us don’t mind getting our twinkle on any old time, a lot of women like to reserve those shining moments for special occasions. Wearing anything glittery can be a bit intimidating, especially if it’s not something you are used to. We have chosen a wide variety of holiday party pieces — from subtle to full on dazzle to help with all of your getting ready needs.

My Story: Cancer does not define the survivor

In 2011 at just 34 years old, I was told I had breast cancer. I felt a lump while I was breastfeeding and my ob/gyn told me that I had “lumpy” breast due to breastfeeding. I was not comfortable with this statement, so I went ahead and sought the advice of another ob/gyn. This time I was sent for diagnostic testing. Even then, the radiologist said “Young women have dense breasts so it’s probably nothing.” I did not feel comfortable with that diagnosis. I took the radiologist’s hand and laid it on the lump that I was feeling and told her, “This is the lump I have been feeling for six months.” After two biopsies, doctors confirmed that I had ductal carcinoma in-situ.

Something to Pink About

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we want to give you something to "pink" about. We are living in a world where practically any person you meet has in some way been touched by the effects of cancer. Many of those stories involve breast cancer; my own mother battled (and survived) it, and so have many other brave, strong women. As females we can never bring enough attention to how important awareness on the illness truly is. One way to do that is through shopping. Yes, shopping! A favorite past time of many of us ladies can now also be a great way to help raise money for a fantastic cause. Whether buying these products for yourself or helping a fellow woman who might be going through treatment, we can help make a difference by simply researching companies that help contribute to the pink cause. We are making the scouting process a little easier by sharing with you a variety of our favorite items that donate a profit of their sales to Breast Cancer research. Many of our selections are of the beauty variety, a few favorites and staples that have been especially redesigned with a touch of pink awareness.
