I’m living on such sweet nothing

30 Mar

If the rest of the year is as amazing as the month of March was I’m going to have the best year of my life! Firstly, March 1-3 I attended a Jivamukti Yoga retreat in Upstate New York. It was peaceful, enlightening and I saw the light and decided to become a vegetarian and any excess weight I was holding melted right off. As a result of changing my diet I felt better, lighter and my skin looks great. If  your ever in New York, check out JIVAMUKTI in Union Square and take every class given by Jules Febre and Narayani. They are the best and bringing out the best in you! I wish I could retreat every month.

That was a fantastic start to the month. One of my closest friends Ava Lee Scott is an actor in the celebrated play Sleep No More

UnknownShe decided to join forces with GIRL BE HEARD(http://girlbeheard.org) which is an organization that helps girls that have been sex trafficked and have been abused by giving them a voice in their theater company. The beautiful girls from GIRL BE HEARD performed songs, monologues and mini plays in the Sleep No More Space. I was lucky enough to be a sponsor and make the girls Lila Juliet headbands.

If you follow my blog you know I LOVE vintage everything.  I’ve been buying vintage in order to sell it on http://www.lilajuliet.etsy.com but I’ve been procrastinating.  But not this month! My sweet, beautiful friend Sam offered to model for me and my friend Sima did her make up. If you’re in the New York area and you need your makeup done contact her

This was the beautiful result

**Fix a bad hair day, have perfect makeup and have a blissful day**

19 Sep

Just added a video so you could have a soundtrack while you read.

I wake up everyday at 5:45 am to make my daughter lunch for school and then later wake her up and make her breakfast and help her get ready for school. After my daughters totally ready its my turn. I always know what to do with clothes and I consider myself fairly decent with makeup. But my HAIR! It drives me crazy, sometimes its so pretty and wavy and if  Im lucky enough to have my friend Jennifer Cali blow dry it, its perfectly pin straight for 2 days but for those other days, I discovered Goody Spin Pins. I LOVE IT!!

This the answer to all your bad hair days or days your in a rush

 These 2 little babies can give you styles like this.

I love the side bun. Once you make the bun stick in a jewel or a flower

I kind of do really fast, I need to get out the door kind of makeup. But if you have the time, I suggest you learn and watch XSPAKAGE on youtube. When I had more time in California I watched her videos and learned so many tips.

I just got my computer working again, so Ill have a new blog up soon filled with pics and info!

With Love,

Michelle

MOD Vintage look of the Day from the 1960’s-Inspired by Sophia Loren

20 Apr

My favorite actress of all time is Sophia Loren. Im just in love with the 1960’s old Hollywood look. Hair was always perfectly curled and clothing was so feminine. Girls got dressed up just to go the supermarket. My friends make fun of me for taking 30 minutes getting ready when all we are doing is going to Trader Joes. I dont care because I want to feel good when Im out and Im sure Sophia Loren would approve of me looking my best.

I hope these pics inspired some fashionistas out there. I was looking around on etsy and found some great mod looks.
