I believe that if you are constantly putting yourself down and trying to achieve unattainable results, then you probably won't succeed (or at least not the way you want to) at keeping a consistent beauty routine, having a wardrobe you love or sticking with a fitness routine.

The Lady Gaga we fell in love with 10 years ago is back and better than ever. The icon who carved out an indelible brand persona has finally returned to her fans, her roots, her senses, and to her betrothed little monsters. She has reclaimed her trademark pedigree that made her the irrepressible image we all fell in love with. And she did it without any outside help or needless controversy.
I have been travelling more and more, and want to keep my style fresh when I am running through airports or travelling to new exciting destinations. I recently picked up some amazing spring style tips from Bradley O'Brien -- executive vice president of design and product development for Tommy Bahama.
In the now-deleted clip, Gigi is seen squinting her eyes as she holds a Buddha-shaped cookie up to her face. While this type of joke is often seen as innocent, this little stunt is actually mocking the physical features of an entire race - and it's not OK. It's racist and it's ignorant.
Exactly. People don't generally announce in public that they shop at the Salvation Army, Value Village or Goodwill. But my teenage daughters love shopping at the thrift store. It's not that they like saving money. It's that they can get more clothes. I know those are two sides of the same coin, but it's a fundamentally different attitude.
With your wardrobe, small details can make the difference between feeling somewhat polished (even if you're not totally feeling like your pre-baby self) and showing up to a meeting covered in breast milk. It helps to have a few tricks up your sleeve.
When the weather keeps me cooped up indoors, I like doing creative projects that keep me busy and beautify my space at the same time. One project that's been languishing since last summer is refinishing an old cabinet. I have a big soft spot for anything retro or vintage. Because I love the inherent history in old items, I rarely refinish them. The scratches, the dents, and the chips are all part of their stories. But upcycling old furniture is quite trendy now, and I've seen so many beautiful ideas. I wanted to try it.

Here's the thing: style is completely subjective. It's also ever changing. Yes there are (so-called) rules and guidelines, do's and don'ts, ins and outs, but style itself is, or should be, a personal, individual thing -- an expression of and extension of the self.
Many of us are a little (OK, a lot) obsessed with home design so it's only natural that it comes up in dinner-party conversation or during a girl's night out. Or at the bus stop, or in the dentist's chair. Sometimes, however, we're stuck for a quick way to sum up our aesthetic. Here are 10 ways to communicate your home decor style succinctly -- so you can even do it on an elevator ride.
Being clean and smelling great should never mean using manufactured, toxic substances that you will inhale and absorb. If you insist on wearing a scent or scenting a space, please consider these ways to smell fresh while going fragrance-free.
When I look around, there are lots of women with really great hair, but there seem to be so many more with drab, no-style styles or those that insist on wearing their hair up, every single day. It seems like most women in that category fall into their late 30s to 40s. It's as if this is the age where we lose our direction.
For 2017, we foresee beautiful big curls with a cheek length face-framing fringe and layers throughout. We additionally look forward to styling sleek ponytails and top knots with soft ribbon details and accessories such as bows, and big bold jewelry including emeralds and diamonds.
Microblading is the new lash extension -- everyone's doing it. Those perfect brows you're seeing on Instagram aren't the result of brain surgeon-steady hands applying gel, they're the work of artists tattooing them onto faces. And yes, let's be clear: microblading is absolutely a tattoo process. They're placing ink under your skin, that's the very definition of tattooing, so if you're consulting with someone who tells you otherwise: R-U-N away.

As baggage restrictions tighten, travellers are finding more creative ways to avoid fees. But even the lightest packers find it difficult to forego checking a bag when travelling to chilly winter destinations.
One of the latest hair trends includes sleek hair swept up off the face with some height up front and slightly disheveled, with a "glunge" texture through the rest of the hair. This style is great for any length of hair, and the contrasts in texture look great for the holiday season.
