January 26th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: Hollywood’s Current Favorite Fashion Trends

Having fashion show access, professional stylists, and seemingly unlimited bank accounts, celebrities and fashion “it” girls are able to rock the latest looks and set trends season after season. Take a look at some of Hollywood’s current favorite fashion trends!

 

Bomber jackets

A reoccurring trend seen on the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, the bomber jacket made a huge comeback in 2016 and is definitely competing for trend of the year in 2017.

Embellished Slippers

Embellished Slippers

Much like loafers and slides, embellished slippers are a style our feet are so glad we have embraced. Recently seen on Dakota Johnson and Olivia Palermo, embellished slippers are the new ‘cool girl’ shoe of the season.

Newsboy caps 

Newsboy Cap

Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner frequently rock newsboy caps, and for a good reason! Top off your outfit with one for that instantly chic celebrity street style look.

Mini bags

They may not hold much, but they’ll hold your essentials and be your coolest accessory this season.

Lace-up Tops

You’ll be seeing lace-up tops everywhere this year; it’s a way to show some skin without being as overtly sexy as a classic plunge.

January 12th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile 5 Celebrity Books Worth Reading

Celebrities are often put on a pedestal and looked to for inspiration and advice. It may be arguable whether celebs are worth this admiration—they are real people, just like you and me!—but there are the special few who have been able to take their life experiences to heart and share with us their wisdom. Some share health advice, some lifestyle or diet advice, and other share stories and experiences to connect with their fans.

Take a look at my top five celebrity books released in 2016 that are worth the purchase!

 

The Longevity Book

1. The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time  Cameron Diaz
Just by looking at Cameron, it’s all too obvious how well she takes care of her body. It turns out that Cameron knows how to take care of her mind too. Cameron’s book is full of information based on not only her personal experience, but on science and nutrition, making it practical, educational, and empowering. We want to give an honorable mention to The Body Book too, released just a bit earlier!

 

Why Not Me

2. Why Not Me?  Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling is so many things: actress, writer, producer, director and inspiration to many young girls and women. In this collection of personal essays, Mindy writes about her experiences and lessons in life, love, and career without a filter. Mindy is able to connect with the every-woman and by the end of each book, you’ll feel like you just made a new best friend. Also check out Mindy’s previous book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? for more great Mindy stories.

 

Year of Yes

3. Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person – Shonda Rhimes
Shonda Rhimes is one of the smartest and hardest working women in Hollywood. In her book, Shonda confronts her introverted self and spends a year saying “yes!” In sharing her journey, Shonda will inspire you to live your life to the fullest, how you want to, doing what will make you happy.

 

Wildflower

4. Wildflower  Drew Barrymore
Wildflower isn’t Drew’s first foray into writing, but it’s certainly her best effort to date. It tells the stories, past and present, of this former wild child star turned America’s girl next door. Drew uses humor and honesty to share stories of her past with perspective from the present.

 

celebrity books

5. Scrappy Little Nobody  Anna Kendrick
Anna is like your best friend—she says what you’re thinking, when you’re thinking it, with boldness and humor. Sometimes I wonder how she is able to get inside my brain and read my exact thoughts! She has proclaimed herself as awkward, weird, and unusual, and her essays will make you feel a thousand times better about the weirdness you never knew you shared with one of Hollywood’s brightest stars.

December 15th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile 5 Celebrity Fashion Collaborations from 2016

Celebrities have their hands in multiple projects at once and collaborating with fashion and beauty brands has become a common occurrence. Some celebs seemingly only front for the camera for publicity, and it’ll often show in the final product. The best celebrity collaborations are born when both sides have their hands in design and promotion, and the celebrity and brand already had similar styles or goals.

Check out our favorite celeb collaborations of the year below!

 

Olivia Palermo x Nordstrom

olivianordstrom

Olivia has risen from reality TV fame to fashion icon! She’s outdone herself with her newest collaboration with Nordstrom’s private label line, Chelsea28. The line is full of versatile, classic pieces that are meant to be mixed, matched, and worn by the everyday woman.

Jessica Alba x DL1961

Jessica Alba worked with denim line DL1061 to create a line of jeans for every woman, even using her friends as the fit models. Alba has been able to create a chic line of denim while sticking true to her cause of environmental protection—DL1961 is known for their eco-friendliness.

Gigi Hadid x Tommy Hilfiger

Gigi Hadid is on her way to becoming a modern day supermodel, thanks in part to huge social media influence. Hadid herself is something of a fashion icon, and now you can wear pieces that she had a part in designing with Tommy Hilfiger. The collection is classic, fresh, and fun.

Rihanna x Puma

rihannapuma

Rihanna has teamed up with Puma to give us a streetwear line that is absolutely runway-worthy! From the fuzzy pink slides that are taking over Instagram, to velvet creepers and athleisure styles, these are pieces you’ll want in your closet.

Beyonce x Topshop

Beyonce and Topshop collaborated this year to bring us the ultimate gym attire line, Ivy Park. We’re still head over heels! It’s the perfect line to take you from yoga to brunch to errands.

December 1st, 2016 by Jennifer Beile 7 Activities to Get You Into the Holiday Spirit

It’s that time of year again: the holidays are upon us, and the next thing we know, 2016 will be gone and we’ll have a clean slate to begin again. Instead of letting the holidays sneak up on you this year, take the time to enjoy the little joys of the season. Whether you’ve been listening to holiday music since Halloween or are slower to get into the festive spirit, check out a few of my favorite holiday activities below for enjoying the season to the fullest this year.

holiday spirit

1. Listen to Holiday Music
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” Buddy the Elf wasn’t wrong! Sing along to some classic holiday songs to spread a little cheer to the people you love. My personal favorite? Mariah Carey’s classic album Merry Christmas.

2. Decorate
Whether you’re into traditional or unconventional holiday décor, decorating will surely put a smile on your face and give you those warm fuzzy feelings inside!

3. Pace Your Shopping
Don’t wait until the very last minute to get all your shopping done. Create a list and take your time shopping, whether online or in-store. Shopping and spending money can be the biggest source of stress during the holidays. You may be surprised at how much more you will enjoy the holidays with a little planning and time management!

4. Do Unto Others
The holidays are ultimately about spreading love, and the best way to do that is to help people who are less fortunate than you. Volunteer at a soup kitchen, participate in a toy drive, and donate what you can, whether that be your time or money.

5. Plan a Gift Exchange
Plan a gift exchange with some of your closest friends. I love White Elephant and Secret Santa gift exchanges during the holidays to put everyone in a joyful mood. Plus, who can say no to a holiday party? Dress it up with a formal dinner, or dress it down with an ugly Christmas sweater or pajama party!

6. Have a Holiday Movie Marathon
I started this tradition with my husband last year, complete with cinnamon rolls in the morning, pajamas all day, and hot chocolate. Cozying up on the couch with a loved one or a best friend while watching all the cheesy holiday movies that you pretend you don’t love is a great way to spend quality time together.

7. Take a Day Trip
I love taking a day or overnight trip up to the mountains to play in the snow during the holiday season. Living in LA, the weather leaves a lot to be desired during the winter months, so I always make sure and take time out to go somewhere close that will cure those sunny winter blues. If you already live where it snows, take the time to go outside and build a snowman, have a snowball fight, or just walk in the snow. I end these trips with a drive around town looking at all the holiday lights. Use this Light Finder to find the best places near you!
