Rainy Days

Yesterday was a very rainy in Minneapolis and I spent the majority of the day trying to keep our laundry room from flooding. In between changing and spinning out towels, I played around with instagram. I've been on it forever, but never really use it. It's actually pretty fun! For those of you that don't [...]

Glamorous, Yet Easy, Up-Do

The FiFi Awards were held earlier this week to honor the top fragrances of the year. But one thing stole the show and it wasn't a perfume, it was Nicole Richie's super glamorous up-do. I love the height and volume of this up-do. While it may look complicated and intricate, it's actually quite easy to [...]

Pop Your Physique

Last Friday I did a post about barre workouts and today I'm going to introduce you to another amazing DVD collection. As you know, barre is my workout of choice, and this system is hardcore. Created by former ballet dancer Jennifer Williams, Pop Physique incorporates a ballet barre inspired exercise system into an efficient class [...]

Sake Me Away

But we do have to remember to breathe and take some time out to recharge those batteries. My favorite way to escape is through [...]

Eyebrow Wow

I have relatively sparse eyebrows. I can't really complain, several people in my family have little to none and are virtually translucent. Mine, at least, have some color. I so envy those with beautifully shaped and thick eyebrows. I know, I can fill them in, but I have never had luck with eyebrow pencils. I [...]

Ballet Beautiful

I really dislike working out. Growing up, I was fortunate enough not to have too. My adult life has been spent standing on my feet and running around stores and malls so it was easy to maintain. I knew when I lost my job back in May I was going to have to start doing [...]
