Give Yourself A Personal Reboot!

Share on Twitter0 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest2 Share on Google +11


Lately, I have been feeling such a shift in how we all are feeling. Too much stress, not enough care for ourselves.  Makeup can be fun, but at heart it is what is going on inside us that counts.  As I have always said, no amount of makeup can mask a sad heart.  The times in my life that I have felt the most beautiful have always had to do with how much I am laughing…not how much makeup I had on.  So, in the spirit of this, I will be starting to share more stories and tips on the blog of how we can create beauty…starting from the inside!  Because being beautiful is not just about makeup.  It is so much more.

If you’ve been feeling a little crabby lately — maybe you feel more stressed or extra burdened than ever — it is possible to give yourself a personal reboot and be the kind of person others admire.

Our experts offer seven ways to increase your generosity, patience and tolerance — starting today.

Tip No. 1: Fill Your Personal “Pitcher”

Before you can be bighearted towards others, you have to do what certified health and wellness coach and registered dietician Adrienne Raimo calls “filling your pitcher” first. “This means taking care of yourself and your body,” says Raimo. “To be the best you can be, do your best to eat well, exercise and reduce stress. Otherwise, you’ll feel depleted.”

Biggest Celebrity Hair Changes

Share on Twitter3 Share on Facebook0 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11
Celebrity Hair Changes
by Sian Bitner Kearney;

We always hear people say that celebrities are just like us, and when it comes to having hairstyle and color commitment issues, they are correct. While it’s true that many celebs have to go through these changes for movie roles, some do it for the same reasons we do; boredom, age or just needing a fresh look for a new season. So Love them or hate them, here are our top five picks for major celebrity hair changes.

#1 – Pam Anderson
Anyone who suffered through their 20’s in the early to mid 1990’s has an image of Pamela Anderson burned in their brain. She was blonde, tan, and literally a living Barbie Doll. Men everywhere flocked to Prime Time to watch her run down the beach on Bay Watch, and let’s not even start on her countless other film appearances. Recently, Pam traded in her long, bombshell locks for a new and modern pixie cut and some are saying she’s never looked better. While it certainly does bring more of a “mom” appearance to the star than her classic big hair, we have to agree she looks amazing.

#2- Kim Kardashian
Kim is known for her dark beauty; long raven hair, dark eyes, and bronzed skin. However, after Kim became a mama she needed a change and lightened up. True, we have seen Kim blonde before, but never like this. She went for a semi-ombre’ look with some serious platinum tones versus the safe caramel she went for last time. Caramel, brunette or blonde we love Kim Kardashian for always keeping it fresh.

#3 – Olivia Wilde
Let’s face it, no matter what color she rocks, Olivia Wilde is gorgeous, but her recent change back from a sandy blonde to a glossy brunette with ombre’ highlights definitely accentuates her looks even more. The blonde was an easy transition for Wilde (she wore that color for years while staring on the O.C.), but with her skin tone and vivid blue/green eyes, the darker color takes this starlet from pretty to absolutely gorgeous!

Gorgeous Brunettes

#4 – Brooklyn Decker
She was the apple of Adam Sandler’s eye in the film Just Go With It (at least until he spotted Jen Aniston in a bikini!), and one of SI Swimsuit’s most infamous models. Known for being the definition of a California beach girl, her wavy, blonde hair, tanned skin, and All-American good looks left us all pounding down our stylist’s door demanding more highlights A.S.A.P. However, Brooklyn recently made a change to brunette for some acting roles. While the color is still very lovely on Decker, we have to admit, she will always be a blonde in our hearts.

#5 – Kate Beckinsale
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Kate Beckinsale is the queen of gorgeous hair. From her highlights to her curls no matter where she is photographed, her hair is pure perfection. However, for the film Contraband, Beckinsale did a major bleach job on her signature locks and went for a pale blonde. With a face like Kate’s, we doubt any color could make her look bad, but even she made a statement about the color after filming wrapped saying she was happy to be back to brunette and would never go blonde again.

Date Look:
Impressive First Date
You are excited for your first date, so you want to look and dress to impress. You want to look like that beauty-next-door without overdoing yourself. Enhance your eyes with a dreamy bronzed smoky look. Finish off the look with a natural matte flush and soft pink-nude lips.

Wild Date
Going somewhere fun and colorful like amusement park? You can dress comfortably, but definitely play up your makeup colors to make you shine more vibrant and more vivacious than the rides themselves. Be bold and aggressive by pairing your juicy-raspberry stained lips with glittery electric blue eyes!

A Smoking Date
Whether you may be going clubbing with your girlfriend in attempt to hunt down your hot guy or you already got one hanging at your tips, you would want to make your statement out on that dance floor. Stand out by wearing shimmery bright gold and nude eyeshadow instead of the traditional cat eye smoky eye look. Going nude or light pink on your lips may make your lip look washed out at the club, so top off the look with a daring red or fuchsia color.
