We all have different people in our lives who help guide and mold us into the person we ultimately become. One of the most inspiring women I know is my grandmother, Betsye “Bycee” Clark. An always witty, ever-charming, and unabashedly glamorous woman, she instilled in me the joy and importance of taking care of myself and embracing beauty in all things. From the way she decorates her home to the way she prepares a meal to the way she communicates, and of course to the way she dresses and styles herself so impeccably, Bycee is one of those women who just “gets it.”

I’ve been on a hair kick lately. Last week, we heard from Alberti from Alterna. Today, I’m going to tell you about my tress-transforming experience with Ojon, and their lead stylist, Gwynne Mims, is even going to weigh in with some expert info, tips, and more.
If you’re unfamiliar with the brand, you may be wondering what “Ojon” means. Well, Ojon is a type of palm tree found in the remote tropical rainforests of Central America. Its nuts contain precious oil that has the ability to help restore even the most damaged hair. In fact, it has been helping hair look he... Continue Reading

Calling all Lipstick Queens!
The holidays are upon us, and it’s time to celebrate. If there’s one festive trend that screams, "It’s time to party!," then it’s sparkle. Think mirror balls, fairy lights, and sequined party dresses. Speaking of mirror balls, what could be more apt for the party season than a trio of lipsticks inspired by disco? I love everything about the whole Studio 54 era with all its glitter and glamour. But, there’s a fine line between "le chic" and "le freak" when it comes to sparkly makeup. So, with this in mind, I set out to cre... Continue Reading

I think one of the most fun and/or most significant gifts you can give a girl of any age is a gift of beauty. It allows us to try that item or brand we've always wanted to play with, colors we've never worn, enjoy the splurge we might not make on ourselves, or truly change the way we feel about ourselves. But in any of these cases, it's the gift of feeling beautiful. And that's priceless.

When you see celebrities and models on the red carpets or in magazines they usually have flawless looking skin. Of course, a lot of that perfection is achieved with perfect lighting and airbrushing, but you can achieve the same results by copying some of their make-up tricks. If you want that subtle glow, you need a good highlighter. Most women I know do not wear highlighter (even I skip it sometimes), but when worn correctly, it can totally change your appearance, making you look younger and more radiant.
