I am drawn to powerful women who prefer pearls to diamonds, dresses to pants and pencil skirts to mini skirts. Some of these women are real. And some are fictional, such as Catherine Banning or Claire Underwood, who is my latest fashion obsession.
A really good deck doesn't stop at the luxuriant lumber from which it is constructed. To bring any deck (patio or terrace) alive it needs subsequent "layers." In precisely the same manner in which décor and accessories will alternate interior "beat," so too can visual and physical tricks make your exterior scheme look "considered."
Sometimes a spot of decorative Botox simply isn't enough. Cue a full facelift, and some grand scale reconstructive surgery, say cottage-style surgeons...
Split ends are an all too common problem for us all. Naturally your hair type plays a role in how many and how often you get them, but certain habits are also responsible for causing split ends.

His signature style is a radiant look that goes beyond the makeup and draws attention to the woman wearing it.
Four months of extreme nail biting. The appraisal of several hundred pages of property details and appointments to view perhaps 45 cottages. Yup, the search for a new cabin was arduous. Just as we were about to throw in the towel, Rob emailed one last prospect: a 1980s A-frame. But it was clearly a bag of problems...

To find out how I can look chic when running around town (and get that look that celebrities have!) I spoke with Elana Brynes, Founder and Creative Director of Kings of Cole.
I shop a lot. I mean A LOT. While I am out shopping, I commonly see people trying on various clothing items asking someone else or standing in front o...
Everyone deserves to have a day to feel special. Luxury can be associated with expensive outings, taste and experiences; however it can also be inspired by a sense of self worth and the way people make us feel. A life of luxury may seem out of your reach; but money isn't the only way to make you feel like you are worth thousands.

It's also, potentially, a community centre for local kids, a homework station or just somewhere to enjoy a cuppa with friends while gossiping about life and love.
This letter is not only a hello again. It is not a reaching out with open arms ready for your rough denim-y blanket-sized embrace. As I tell you hello once more, I must just as quickly say goodbye. Don't weep for me, dear JNCO's. We will always have seventh grade.
Hair trends are constantly changing. I was surprised when I saw that Kim Kardashian had cut off her hair. I had always thought her mane was such a reflection of who she is. Recently, I spoke with Jessica Van Kuyk, Artistic Director at Suki's Salons and Academy to find out more about the hottest hair colour trends for spring and also the latest style trends.
