3D-Printed Clothes

Back from Paris for only a few hours now, after visiting the world’s premiere TREND trade show for fashion and accessories. The trade show is called WHAT’S NEXT and it certainly didn’t disappoint, introducing new trends, innovations and improvements.

My big report is that 3D-printed clothes are destined to be something that everyone will have in their wardrobe for everything from special occasion dresses to lingerie and accessories.

3D printers are an amazing wave of the future, and patterns are now being created to print corsets, dresses, straps, fasteners, accessories and even fabric that can then be sewn.

Just as many homes today have sewing machines and creative people who can whip up a dress in an afternoon, eventually more and more homes will have 3D printers that can be programmed in minutes to create a new original design or work from an established pattern. The imagination and convenience of this is astonishing to think about.

The 3D “material” is currently mostly based in plastics, but innovation and advancements are changing this as well. The printed materials are promising that the comfort, flexibility, stretch, breathability and beauty of your 3D creations will also make them wearable.

It’s an amazing time y’all!!

Hand-painted Clothing

Clothing and accessories as your canvas!

With the development of swift and inexpensive textile printing, designers have hit the paints and are creating amazing garments and accessories that are true works of art. Hand-painted clothing and accessories are a major trend for 2017, as unique, personalized, artisan pieces take precedence over mass-produced common clothing.

My favorite aspect of this trend is that YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN WEARABLE ART!

Just like any big-name designer, each of us has the ability to paint on our own clothes to create a one-of-a-kind look that is eye-catching and special.

You can find washable fabric paint at any craft store and lots of tutorials for applications on YouTube. What a fabulous way to level-up anything and put your unique stamp on your fashions. Think of how many things can be your canvas!

You can do this.



New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year!

It’s a new beginning and a time for resolutions. We all know that if resolutions are too hard and drastic, they will be broken within just a few days, so let’s talk about a few changes that we can make that will stick!

All my years working on the NBC show STARTING OVER taught me that we all want more love, money, beauty/body-care and family. This is a simple universal truth.

These desires can be interpreted differently for everyone – like finding a partner, excelling at work, stronger family ties or a better body and health…but basically we want to make strides in the L.M.B.F. arena.

So if we know that improvements in these areas can make a major difference in our lives, we should dedicate at least 30 minutes a week, 2 hours a month, 24 hours a year – One full day of 2017 – to improving each of the L.M.B.F. categories.

Maybe this week, you give yourself an at-home facial, work on your dating profile, take the lead at work and call an old cousin you haven’t spoken with in years? Next week, plan a hike, update your resume, shop for a new dress and send some thank-you notes. Week three, schedule brunch with an old friend, open a savings account, take a Zumba class and get a haircut.

The point is to realize that LOVE, MONEY, BEAUTY & FAMILY are at the core of all of our needs and desires, so we need to keep taking the baby steps each week of the year that will surely add up to big improvements by the end of 2017.

Bring on the happiness, 30 minutes at a time!

You can do this! And you are worth it.


New Year’s Eve

The three super-easy things you need to ring in the New Year with great style! Come on! Start 2017 with a little effort and pizazz!

1. Wear something sequined!

Whether it’s a sequined tee shirt, leggings or a fabulous dress, wear something with sparkle on the best party night of the year. Even if you’re just going to dinner with friends, don’t miss the chance to shine.


2. Glitter your eyes and nails!

Great style is often in the details, so don’t forget to bejewel your eyes and nails for New Year’s Eve. When everything else is a little basic, your eye makeup and nails can turn the style dial to “fancy” with minimal effort. So don’t forget the iridescence and glittery fun for your lids and tips!

3. Special hair

Take the extra ten minutes and do something extra with your hair!! Add a braid, some curls, an updo or crimping.

Just do something different and special. Even if you’re in a 20-year-old outfit, special hair, glittery eyes/nails and something sequined will have you looking ready for a New Year’s rocking Eve!!

You can do this! Have fun!

The Fade

The top three reasons the Fade has been the most requested haircut of 2016!

1. It’s the ultimate blend of conservative and rebel, messy and neat, good guy and bad boy. The top can be a hot crazy mess, but the cut to short says I’m still boardroom ready.

2. If you are going to do facial hair, you’ve got to keep a clean cut or you run the risk of looking like Grizzly Adams. You can’t have a bushy beard and a bushy head of hair.

3. The Fade is a facelift for men!! Yep! Keeping the temples to the neck super trim and the top longer, reshapes your face and lifts everything, making you look 10 years younger in minutes. This is THE youthful haircut that works on every man, every time.

If your fellah needs a little revamp, start with a Fade haircut. He will look modern in minutes… then you can work on his jeans and shoes! Hahaha!

You can do it!!





Your Washing Machine Needs Some Mouthwash

Your washing machine needs some mouthwash?!

Yep, you heard me. Your washing machine needs some mouthwash.

Once a season, you should run 1-2 cups of mouthwash through your washing machine to kill germs, eliminate residue and disengage any build-up. This is especially true for the wintertime when our clothes become more “pill HAPPY!”

Your washing machine, once cleaned with mouthwash, will leave your clothes much cleaner and allow you to reduce the number of necessary washings. This will reduce the friction strain put on your fall and winter knits, and in turn make them last longer and produce less pilling… so, in my equation, mouthwash helps reduce pilling and saves your winter clothes!

Get it?!


Just try it. You won’t believe the difference.


Favorite Gifts Under $10

Favorite gifts under $10!

We all have people in our lives who deserve a little remembering this holiday season. Smaller gestures are sometimes the most difficult, because you want to reflect some thought without breaking the bank, forcing intimacy or phoning it in with a gift card.

I wanted to share my three favorite gifts for under $10 this year that will reflect effort, thought and fabulous style.

1. Ponytail Cuff!

This fabulous little piece of jewelry for your hair turns a bad hair day into a chic chignon in seconds. It’s like a bracelet cuff for your ponytail and it elevates your your whole look effortlessly. I have one and I love it! If you have girls in your life who rock a ponytail for work or play, they will super love a ponytail cuff.

2. The iRing®

This attachable kickstand/finger ring for the back of your phone helps you both hold on to your phone and prop it up for video viewing or FaceTiming. It can also be used with a lanyard to carry your phone around your neck. It seems like a small thing, but it’s fabulously handy and both men and women will enjoy it. It quickly becomes a necessity.

3. Zipstick® Retractable Lip Balm

If you ski, bike, run, have chronic chapped lips or just want your lip balm at the ready, the Zipstick is a MUST MUST MUST! This zipper pull with retractable cable allows you to WEAR your Chapstick tube on any zipper or hook, keeping it super handy and accessible all the time. Both men and women will love this gift, as it alleviates the pocket dig when you’re active, and the retractable cable allows you to apply and zip back into place hassle free. Makes a great gift and super stocking stuffer.

These 3 things will have you party-ready in seconds!

The 3 things to keep in your work bag that will allow you to say YES to every party invitation this season!!

No reason to say no to an unexpected gathering – keep these three things at the ready and you’ll always look fabulous and holiday party perfect… even if you’re coming from the gym!

1. Red lipstick! This one cosmetic item brightens your entire face, whitens your teeth and creates a holiday look in seconds. Find your favorite red and keep it in your bag!

2. Red shoes! Yes, add red shoes to any basic look and boom, you’ve got high wattage style with very little effort. If you can rock some heels, great. If you’re a flats girl, no sweat, just make them red and you’ll still look up-leveled and special.

3. Statement jewelry! Pack something oversized and sparkly. Just one thing. Choose earrings, a necklace OR a brooch and make it something you wouldn’t wear every day or perhaps any other time of year.

By adding these three simple things, you can take even jeans and a sweatshirt to a party appropriate level. No reason to say no! Just add and go!!! Have some fun!

I love when the weather changes and we can slip our legs into supportive, style affirming tights! Great tights let you get away with shorter skirts and add a layer of texture, style and warmth to your outfit.

But there is nothing worse than being out in your cute ensemble, loving your tights, and then…pow! Your outfit is ruined by a run in your $25 tights! HATE THAT!

So here’s what we all need to do when we get a new pair of tights.


image003Yep! Take them right out of the package, briefly soak them in water and place them in a plastic bag in the freezer. Let them freeze overnight.

Take your tights out the next day and let them thaw out and hang dry.
You are now ready to enjoy your tights for many more wearings and with a greatly reduced chance of runs.

The freezing actually reinforces the fibers and helps prevent runs and picks. This works like a charm, but only on tights that haven’t been worn or stretched out yet.

So, considering it’s stock-up time for your tights wardrobe, remember to freeze them first and you’ll be able to enjoy them for seasons to come.

Short Hair

Why you need a mohawk NOW!

Well, maybe you’re not ready for a mohawk – though fabulous fems are rocking a modified mohawk everywhere and looking tres awesome – but perhaps you’ve been dying to go short and haven’t been able to muster the courage. Here are 5 reasons why NOW is the time to go short!


1. Your hair is fried after summer pool, sun, beach and bleach! It’s time for a clean start! Now is the perfect time to go short!

2. We are heading into major photo season. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years – you will look freshy-fresh in all of those family and friend photo ops! Now is the perfect time to go short.

3. You will be taken much more seriously at work and school. Short hair takes courage and now is a great time to show some spunk at work or school and push ahead of the pack! End of year bonuses are just around the corner! Now is the perfect time to go short.

4. It’s officially hat season. If you hate your short hair cut, you can keep it fashionably covered for months! Now is the perfect time to go short.

5. If you cut your hair today, it will grow 4″ by May if you don’t cut it again. So, you’ll be back into a longer look before summer!! Now is the perfect time to go short!
