The One- Piece Essential

Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti

When it comes to swimsuits, I'm willing to bet that what you've heard is mass approved opinion in which more skin is in. The attitude right now is that only the skimpiest bikinis will do, while high waisted bottoms and one pieces are "trendy" in the market right now.  I believe that anyone can pull off any swim style, because in fashion, almost everyone knows that it's all about the illusion and presenting the best part of your body. With that being said, I feel that the one- piece is where it's at.

Structured Chic

When it comes to fashion, timeless style is of the essence. It's currently pre- fall season in the fashion world, the time in which brands debut what's to come for the autumn season and sometimes even showcase the heavier stuff for winter. The latest pre- fall collection that has me going gaga is the Ports 1961 Pre- Fall '16 assemblage. P61 is the embodiment of a minimalist's dream wardrobe, from the neutral palette to the clean lines and of course it's ability to easily layer with other pieces from the collection. Take a look at a few of my favorite looks from the Ports 1961 Pre- Fall 16 compilation!

Lingerie Through The Years

Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti
I'm not an overtly sexual human being, and I mostly aim to distance myself from any sexual stigma with my work in the blogging community, but that's not to say that lingerie should never be sexy. It really is all about perception. Whilst I tend to be on the other side of the fence about marketing an entire brand about sex, there's more to lingerie brands than they give themselves credit for. But have you ever stopped to think about how lingerie has developed over the years? Imagine, a time when women's underwear choices were based off of modesty. Luckily, Mode Studios has released a chronological video time line for us to get an insight on what was lingerie!

Inside Out



Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti
The saying goes, "You are what you eat," it's a statement that stretches beyond nutrition and into the world of beauty. It's well known that certain foods can change your figure, but do you know that certain foods can also alter your skin's condition? Things like inflamed skin, acne, pimples and even premature aging can be caused by imbalanced hormones due to poor choices in food. Rather than spending thousands on products to topically improve our skin and hair, I try to eat better and healthier to improve my complexion and health. Fortunately the dermatologists and associates of Ogle School have put together a fun infographic that portrays the foods to consume and the ones to avoid for a much easier way to do your next grocery shopping because beauty never rests.

Beauty Bit, My Five Minute Face


Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti, c. 2010
Quite literally in all parts of my life, I'm about efficiency especially when it comes to doing my makeup. Products that can serve a doubly duty and the ones that help you look great in a limited amount of time are my best friends! In the last few years, as life has become much more busy for me, I feel like I'm always in a rush to get somewhere, and ahem always running slightly late, I've built a solid five minute beauty routine. Some days I will have more time to be more elaborate with the look, but five minutes is my usual!
