June 4th, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Ways to Add More Color into Your Wardrobe

If you’ve considered yourself as a person who can only wear neutral or black color palettes, I’m here to tell you that adding a little extra color to your wardrobe goes a long way! Add small statement pieces in shades of sunshine yellow, red and violet, and you’ll find your outfits look more put together and curated. The best part? Chances are that you can easily recreate the looks below with pieces you already own.

Here are 6 ways to put some more color in your outfit!

Try adding that extra pop of color by styling a bright colored blouse under your overalls. Follow up with a pair of shoes in a similar shade.


Want to add color to your wardrobe without being too over-the-top? Tie a colorful scarf around your handbag.


As an alternative to denim jeans, consider wearing a pair of bright colored pants.


Fashion tip: you can never go wrong with a bright yellow dress. Throw a denim jacket on top to balance the color.


Don’t be afraid to indulge in complementary colors. Take a style cue from influencer Grasie Mercedes and pair purples and yellows together.

 


It seems like every fashion girl has at least one pair of bright colored shoes in their wardrobe, and we can’t get enough of them in yellow!

May 31st, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 6 Celebrity Podcasts to Add to Your Queue

I am definitely late to hopping on the podcast train, but since discovering how entertaining they can be, I’ve been hooked. My favorite genre? Celebrity-hosted interview podcasts. Celebrities have free reign to be uncensored in this medium, and the conversation flows into areas that are rarely covered in talk show or magazine interviews.

I’m currently obsessing over these six celebrity-hosted podcasts and count on them to make my commute more bearable!

 

Armchair Expert, Dax Shepard
Dax Shepard hosts my current favorite podcast, Armchair Expert. Dax sits down with celebrities and has vulnerable, honest conversations that show that challenges ultimately lead to growth. My favorite episode (so far) is absolutely the episode with Shepard’s wife, Kristen Bell. Within the two hours, they bicker, make up, and discuss their marriage and how they balance their careers and family—all while being absolutely adorable and totally #relationshipgoals.

 

celebrity hosted podcast

Anna Faris is Unqualified, Anna Faris
Anna’s podcast can honestly be a little bit erratic. She often goes into role-playing characters without any notice, she gives (as the title states) unqualified relationship advice to callers, and she plays games with her celebrity guests (like “Dealbreaker” and “Would You Rather”). The end result, albeit totally bizarre, is a totally entertaining podcast that will make your commute much more enjoyable.

 

Inside of You, Michael Rosenbaum
Actor Michael Rosenbaum, most notable for his role as Lex Luther in Smallville, hosts a no-holds-barred podcast where he invites celebrity friends to his home for in-depth, raw, uncensored conversations. Rosenbaum is charismatic and creates an environment in which his celeb guests feel comfortable enough to let their guard down and open up.

 

WTF with Marc Maron, Marc Maron
With more than 6 million downloads each month, actor/comedian/writer Marc Maron sets the bar high with his podcast. Currently on its ninth year, WTF consistently provides riveting conversation with iconic personalities; everyone from the elusive Macaulay Culkin to President Barack Obama has sat down with Maron.

 

Off Camera with Sam Jones, Sam Jones
Okay, Sam Jones isn’t necessarily a household celebrity name, but he is a celebrity photographer and his podcast (which is also a TV series and magazine) feature some of the biggest stars, so I’m making an exception including this podcast. Sam Jones invites celebrities and artists to sit down and talk about everything from their career to their childhood and family. You’ll feel as though you’re right there in the room with two of your closest friends.

 

Make Speidi Famous Again, Spencer & Heidi Pratt
2018 is the year of a “Speidi” resurrection… Spencer Pratt has a new MTV series on YouTube, one of the most followed and viewed SnapChat accounts, and a highly rated podcast with Heidi. Make Speidi Famous Again focuses on reality show recaps, celebrity gossip, and pop culture cult icon guests like Perez Hilton and the entire cast of Jersey Shore. This podcast will quickly become your guilty pleasure!

May 30th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: Effortless Midi Dress Outfits for Summer

A midi dress is a flattering and versatile piece for a busy summer season—wear it to all your barbecues, music festivals, and summer date nights. It’s the perfect effortless piece to throw on for any occasion. Not too short, not too long, casual with sneakers, and more dressed up with sandals, it’s easy to see why midi dresses are a warm-weather staple.

Take a look at some of my favorite styles of mid-length dresses that make summer dressing so easy!
