Mirror, Mirror: What Does It Take For You To Believe You’re Beautiful?

We were laying on the couch in the darkness, the new Sofia Coppola movie flickering on the TV screen. Even in my lightest pajamas with the AC blaring, my skin soaked with sweat. I'd just taken a cool-off shower, which washed off all my carefully applied makeup from dinner. My wet hair hung around my…

Clint Eastwood’s Daughter And Boyfriend Tyler Shields Burn $100,000 Birkin Bag

I take issue with many women who carry Birkin bags (unless, I mean, you're Jane Birkin), and I swear it's not envy. Let's admit that most anyone who totes a bag that cost upward of $10,000 (and probably closer to $20,000 or more) isn't doing it for the love of the purse: it's a love…

I’d been on a I-just-broke-up-with-my-boyfriend-let-me-get-away-from-it-all vacation to San Francisco. I stayed with a friend, wandered around,…

I am a well-documented believer in the life-changing (or, at the very least, day-changing) potential of makeup.
