I’ve been a hat girl my whole life. They really make an outfit pop and ooze with confidence. When going out with the girls, I’ll sport a fedora. Weekend errands call for my Polo baseball cap. Shoveling the driveway prompts a faux fur trapper hat with under chin ties. Cold winter mornings are made brighter […]

Many of us have Christmas or holiday parties around the corner, and it’s crucial to dress appropriately for these gatherings. When I R.S.V.P. to a holiday party, or any party for that matter, I make it my business to arrive sparkly, cheerful, and ready to mingle. When dressing for work-related holiday parties, it’s important to […]

Although it isn’t technically winter by a meterologist’s timeline, I’m gearing up winter’s full blown arrival. I love everything about going to my closet on a cold winter morning and picking out an outfit to keep me warm (and fashionable) throughout my day. Plucking pieces to put together a perfectly polished look is made fun […]

Happy turkey day all! We’ve decided to cut it short today and wish you all an enjoyable and safe holiday! Soak up your time with loved ones, festivities, food and hopefully a little retail therapy. We’ll be back Monday, November 28th with more of our insights and tips. Wishing you a wonderful holiday- Lauren & […]

While finishing up some Christmas shopping this past weekend at Sephora, I decided to treat myself to a little something new (plus I had a 20% coupon so of course I had to make up for what ever amount I would have saved). Shadow sticks are far from something new, both in beauty stores and […]

Bah humbug. This is the time of year when my skin looks the worst. It’s pale and dry, and I always feel look washed out. I can wear NARS’ Super Orgasm blush or throw on some of my favorite bronzer, but nothing ever seems to make me feel radiant. Yet whenever I start to feel […]

Fall/Winter 2011 in New England has been quite unpredictable this year. It’s only mid-November and already we’ve been hit with a mega hurricane and our first Nor’easter of the season. The last 2 weeks have been unseasonably (and disgustingly) warm for November, with temps reaching into the 60’s. I’ve been geared up for a month […]

Lauren’s Picks for Siblings…Sisters My sister and I may be 9 years apart but we have so much in common as far as interests and hobbies go. It took her some time to get to be the girly girl she is today but watching her on her journey has been really special. We may fight […]

nails inc. is totally knocking my socks off lately! After Cher shared her thoughts on their ever popular magnetic polish (and prompted me to get the purple one) I decided to try their Holographic Glitter Top Coat. Now I am by no means as skilled as Cher is in the nail department. I’m typically sloppy […]

Being able to walk everywhere in Boston is so invigorating. I love not stressing about parking or traffic, and it does wonders for my carbon footprint. However, winter is right on the horizon and my “walk everywhere” days start to get a tad more painful… Luckily, great winter accessories can be found everywhere and somewhat […]
