Nivea enlisted me to participate in their “indulgence challenge,” which meant trying out their Touch of Smoothness body wash and Touch of Renewal body scrub.
Last night’s episode of Mad Men was hard to swallow. If you, like us, have been captivated by the series, and just as much the era, then hold onto your flowered minis because the ’60s are back in a big way. Major beauty brands have caught wind of Mad Men fever and launched collections inspired by the AMC show. Read More

Finding the perfect balance between a fun yet effective fitness plan is not an easy, but a quickly expanding workout trend appears to be doing both with ease. Located in Los Angeles, Heel Hop fitness classes were created by certified fitness instructor and experienced dancer, Kamilah Barrett. Instead of gym shoes, you work out in your favorite pair of 2 1/2 to 3 in. sling-backs. The class is like a sassed up Zumba class, combining a low impact full body workout to not only tone and strengthen your legs and core muscles but build your balance and confidence to ultimately transform you into an expert high heel-wearer. Heel Hop fitness is not the first of its kind. Programs like Stiletto Strength (NYC), Stiletto Fitness(Kansas City), and Vegas Stiletto Fitness (Las Vegas, St. Louis, Denver, and several Texas cities) are steadily cropping up across the country. If you’re like me, you might initially wonder if this could cause any harm or stress to your joints? According to Kamilah, Heel Hop classes are completely safe. However, medical experts say the verdict is still out on whether or not working out in high heels is any worse than just walking in them.
1. My husband and I love the colors in this New Yorker cover and the illustration, which reminds us of us. So, we decided to frame it and hang in our bedroom. Never underestimate the potential of a magazine cover.
2. Monday morning…downtown Chicago…what a city.
3. May Books Day Planner: it keeps life organized behind the absolute cutest cover.
4. Living in a house with two son’s, baby blue has become a theme color. This baby blue Kate Spade satchel is the ideal spring accessory.
5. We love the new Victoria’s Secret PINK Racerback Bralette. It comes in popping hues with super cute lace detailing and will look cute under tanks this summer.
