Get The Look: Kristen Stewart’s Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Premiere Hairstyle

by Tammy Gibson November 18, 2011

Get Kristen Stewart's Hair

Let’s go with more Twilight craze today, shall we? Not only is the movie the buzz of social media and movie theaters everywhere, but this post features a really cool hairstyle that will be perfect for an upcoming holiday party!

Kristen Stewart was looking fabulous at the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. I love the detailed up-do she wore…so pretty but it maintains that edgy feel Kristen’s style is known to have. This style was created by Fekkai Celebrity Stylist, Adir Abergel, for the premiere.

Faux Pas or Fashionably Fab: Festive Sweaters

by Kelly Glenn November 17, 2011

My favorite trend this winter isn’t for everyone – but I think you should totally give it a try.

Christmas sweaters

We’ve all attended them. Those ‘ugly sweater’ parties where everyone heads over to Goodwill or, heaven forbid, the far depths of your closet in search of the tackiest Christmas sweater likely knitted and gifted with love by your precious (and somewhat senile) grandmother.

Or far worse, that one perfect family who sends that absolutely delightful family Christmas card featuring a portrait of their said perfect family (dog included) in matching Christmas sweaters and blue jeans all smiling and looking (unnaturally) happy against a backdrop of fall trees or the sandy beach.

Tacky, right? But lately I’m obsessed with these sweaters. I want to wear them every day, in fact. And who doesn’t love a nice big comfy sweater? Pair it with a nice pair of wool leggings and some riding boots. Totally chic, right?

Turning Strangers Into Friends With Founder Caryln Shaw

by Lindsey Holder November 8, 2011

Intrigued by this new organization, I turned to Founder Carlyn Shaw to get the deets on what Turning Strangers Into Friends was all about!

Turning Strangers Into Friends

What exactly is Turning Strangers into Friends?
Carlyn: TSIF is the way I live my life and manifest my dreams. Every single person we have in our life was at one point, a “stranger”… so who are we to judge the person standing next to us in any given moment.

I believe we are all connected. We can choose to walk around with blinders on, unaware of the people around us. OR, we can be open to the opportunities that cross our path every day.


People = Possibilities.

A Peek Inside Alexis Bellino’s Vanity Bag

by Tammy Gibson October 7, 2011

Tammy Gibson and Alexis Bellino


I recently sat down with Alexis Bellino from The Real Housewives of Orange County during a Hollywood’s Glampreneurs lunch.  We all know Alexis is a beauty but how does she stay that way when out with her 3 kids or running around doing interviews, events or parties?  By carrying a well stocked vanity bag!

Alexis actually carries two vanity bags.  One is all lip product! And, it’s all M.A.C.!  In “every color” as she states!  Take a peek at as she unpacks the second of her vanity bags during an interview with Vanity Girl Hollywood:

My Fall Wish List

by Tammy Gibson September 30, 2011

My Fall Wish List

Every season holds new must-have items to purchase for your wardrobe.  What fun would it be to not update with at least a few key pieces, right?!  We’ve heard about the accessory trends reported by Bethany Winters, let’s talk fashion!

Break it down:

~Cobalt blue is an unexpected and lovely color for fall. This House of Harlow 1960′s Antler Cuff is a beautiful choice for a statement piece!

~Wide leg jeans are the cut of choice this season. While skinny jeans and jeggings still have a place in the wardrobe (we couldn’t tuck into tall boots without them!), the wide leg is sophisticated and make your legs look a mile long. Pair with heels for the best look.

~Capes are on-trend and so chic! I love this one with the plaid pattern and tie front!

~Boots that are versatile enough to wear with jeans or dresses, like ankle boots, are your best bet if you can only afford one pair this season! I’m a fan of the hardware on this pair!

~Cool cap. Really, there is no better way to hide your hair on days that it shouldn’t be seen! You know those days…! Don’t settle for a traditional cap, try something way more stylish like this schoolboy style!


That’s my short list…I really could go on and on.  I’m saving for that cuff (and the matching ring!) but I’m getting that cap sooner than later!

What’s on your fall wish list?

Kardashian Collection At Sears Review

by Lindsey Holder September 27, 2011

Kardashian Kollection at Sears


Eager to check out the new Kardashian Collection, I raced to my nearest Sears. Is that where I am going?

What a surreal feeling to be going into Sears to shop for clothes. I think of that store when I need a new washer or dryer, but not the latest style must-haves! To my surprise, the collection was laid out nicely. Of course it would be-it’s the Kardashian name!

The collection was smaller than I thought it would be, as some pieces on-line I could not find in the store. The first impression the line reminded me of was New York style. The majority of the collection was either black or dark in color (grey or dark blue). I rounded up a few pieces that grabbed my attention & headed to the dressing rooms.

What’s the Hottest Hair Color for Fall?

by Kelly Glenn September 8, 2011

Color Me Fall

Without a doubt this fall will leave us seeing red with everything from clothes, denim, jewelry and accessories following suit. But another place fall’s hottest color is starting to show up all over? Hair.

Red-head stereotypes aside, red can be one of the hardest colors to pull off and it’s definitely a tricky one to maintain. No worries though, depending on your skin tone there’s a shade of red for everyone, whether it be a pale strawberry blonde or a deep auburn. You’ll certainly want to consult with your stylist to find the perfect shade to suit you.

If there’s one thing that anyone who has ever gone red knows, it fades. fast. So to keep your fiery locks from looking dull here are a few tricks:
