St. Patrick’s Day is this Monday & the whole nation will be celebrating. There tends to be two different ways to approach the dressing up situation in order to not get pinched. Option 1 is to wear something loud & over the top, while Option 2 is to wear something more chic & subdued. Festive attire tends to be more fun in groups, so if you are going for the more simple, be sure to check out the options below. You don’t have to wear bright green in order to look the Irish part. Also, it is fun to make your accessories the focal point, rather than your main piece. Los Angeles is hotter climate, so be sure to keep the look more breezy. NYC is a bit chilly this time of year, so make sure to layer up!
Here are some of the nation’s best pubs to celebrate on the 17th.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow & people cannot stop talking about the delicious feasts they are about to consumer & the food comas they are about to endure. Most people eat so much of the main meal that they are usually too full for dessert – but this dessert will cure that. It is a pumpkin brownie with bits of dark chocolate to add to the sweetness. Another perk is that they are gluten free – but don’t taste like it! They are the perfect post Thanksgiving dessert (or dessert round one!)
In order to keep your face clean, you need to keep your makeup brushes clean. Everyday use eventually makes them home for bacteria (which inevitably clogs pores.) No need to purchase an expensive brush cleaner, you can simply use baby shampoo. It is cheaper & gets the job done just as effectively. For the ultimate results, it is recommended to wash your brushes once a week. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to clean your furry makeup tool.
How To: Use warm water to wet the brush tips while they are facing down. The facing down part is key to extending the lifetime of your brush because it keeps the glue, which holds the bristles to the stem, dry & secure. Once thoroughly soaked, apply some baby shampoo & delicately swirl the bubbly brush in the palm of your hand. To rinse, use the same technique of bristles facing down. Once the brush has been rinsed out, set on the side of your sink in order for it to dry without letting the water leak to the stem.
Orange is the color of October. It is the color of the fall leaves, the spooky pumpkins & delicious beer. If you are in the NYC area, you should be sure to check out all of the Oktoberfest Beer Gardens – if not, you can still celebrate with one of the greatest pumpkin flavored beers. On a more refined note, it is the color of both Veuve Clicquot & Hermès – the brands that exemplify luxury with champagne & silk.
The wonderful color between yellow and red can be paired well with navy, oatmeal, brown, black & grey. You can either make a loud statement with an orange puffer, or use it’s magnificent glow as more of an accent color with a handbag or scarf. Just be sure to not wear too much orange a once, one piece can definitely be sufficient.
