A California girl transplanted to the wilds of suburban New Jersey, I’m a shoe-loving, book-obsessed writer and mama. I can also be found at BettyConfidential.com and my own blog, “My First Word Was Shoe.” My work has appeared on sites like SELF.com and The Huffington Post; other interests include running (badly), cooking (not so badly), and over-packing. Sometimes I get to do fun things like cover Fashion Week or “road test” beauty products, but most of the time I’m chained to my laptop or schlepping to pick-up in my PJs -- it’s good to have balance!
Remember last week when Ellen ordered pizza while hosting the Oscars? And the pizza guy actually made the delivery and we all got to see Brad Pitt eating pizza and it was awesome? And THEN Ellen passed around a hat for tips? Well, ONE of the things that made it into that "tip hat" was Lupita N'yong'o's lip balm, and a few days ago, the world found out exactly what kind of lip balm it was.
Feeling a little frisky at the thought of St. Patrick's Day? These green beauty products (and I do mean that literally) are just a little bit wild and definitely out of the ordinary. Pick one or all six for a look that says, "Kiss me ..." whether you're Irish or not!
Somehow there doesn't seem like any holiday more appropriate for a fun and festive manicure than St. Patrick's Day! Here are six great nail art tutorials that you can totally do yourself at home ... you don't even need the luck of the Irish to help you out!
February is over! Three cheers! It's not spring yet, but despite the fact that it's still freezing here on the East Coast, I see the light at the end of the winter tunnel! To get the spring garden party started early, here are some super cute and fun flowery nail art ideas.
I found myself drooling over an advertisement for nude high-heel sandals the other day like they were giant ice-cream sundaes (or Ryan Gosling). Oh am I sooooooooo tired of my winter boots! Alas, it's not sandal weather yet in most parts of the country (you lucky ducks in Florida can go ahead and just laugh at us). (Oh and also I'm married -- sorry Ryan!)
But that's OK! I've got some great picks for shoes that will satisfy your spring-tooth but that you can actually start wearing now. Pedicure is optional!
