Why Did You Wear That: Red-y for the New Year
Written by: admin | Why Did You Wear That?

red thong new yearYears ago when I bought lingerie for Henri Bendels, I stopped by the store to pick up something sparkly for New Year’s Eve.  When I stopped by my own department to make sure all knickers were in tact and brassieres were stocked in all sizes, my favorite stylist informed me of her favorite New Year’s tradition: red underwear.  She swore she did it every year and from what I can tell, her love life seemed to be without a deficit.  So, starting that very day, I picked up a pair of panties in crimson to ring in each new year.

Setting the Mood: Prepare to Shine
Written by: admin | Setting the Mood

new years eveThe end of another year is upon us and while many of us are excited about the prospects of the upcoming year, it is important to prepare oneself for it.  It’s hard to make room for new things when we carry the clutter from the past with us.  I felt it was really important this year especially to do a deep cleanse of my life before the clock strikes midnight.  In anticipation of the new year, here’s what I’ve been doing:

  1. Purge, Purge, Purge: From my closet to my contact list, I got rid of all things which no longer serve a purpose in my life.  Clothes with holes or stains have been put to pasture.  People who act as emotional terrorists have been put on block.
  2. Clean Slate: I scheduled a professional cleaning of my apartment and have freshly washed linens ready to put on my bed.  Laundry is being done.  Dishwasher is loaded.
  3. Tied Down: I went through my inbox and mailbox and made sure to tie up any loose ends and close up any unanswered correspondence. I also made sure there were no outstanding bills or invoices unsent.
  4. Prep Yourself: Scheduling a facial to slough off dead skin and a pedicure to dance into the New Year were the prefect ways to relax through the last few moments of the year.

Why Did You Wear That: A Little Bit of Bling
Written by: admin | Why Did You Wear That?

IMG_9396So, you’re not a glittery dress type of gal.  Neither am I as I expressed to my nail artist this afternoon.  I told her I felt as if I should be festive, but the thought of rhinestones or glitter for two plus weeks, was too much of a commitment.  Whether your New Year’s Eve plans are more low key at a house party or the sheer thought of appearing like a bedazzled Barbie has you reaching for a Xanax, there are ways to add a little bit of shine to your ensemble without bankrupting Michael’s of its Martha Stewart craft section.  Add a touch of shine with cosmetics, accessories, or separates to start the new year off just right.

Friday Frocks: Tick Top You Don’t Stop

new years toastI both love and loathe New Years Eve.  I love it for the symbol of rebirth and chance to recreate yourself and your life, but more superficially, I also love it for the obvious reason: the chance to get completely decked out and dance the night away.  My qualms come in the form of the anticlimactic kisses, lack of cabs, and overcrowded clubs.  To be honest, the past two years I’ve spent December 31st with people who mean more to me than random drunk frat boys in cashmere vests over plaid button downs from J. Crew.  While my plans were less than star studded, that didn’t stop me from dressing up.  I typically shy away from anything too shiny, but these dresses have just enough shimmer to have you ringing in the New Year without being mistaken as the disco ball at that dirty nightclub.

Guest Post: Adrienne Zager Dishes Out Her Holiday Fitness Tips
Written by: admin | Guest Blogger

As many of you sit in the airport reading this from your smartphone, you might be feeling a slight pang of anxiety about returning home for several reasons.  One of those  not involving meeting your sweetheart’s relatives may have something to do with not gaining unnecessary weight while indulging on holiday goodies.  Fortunately, my dear friend and go to for health and fitness tips, Adrienne Zager has been so kind as to drop some knowledge on how to stay slim during your trip home to the ‘burbs. adrienne zager at home workoutNothing can fully express my inner panic and dread of how to pack a suitcase better than that terrified look of dear little Kevin McCallister.  However, after one too many excess baggage fees paid and excess pounds gained, I now officially have traveling light and feeling light down to a science.

Before I share with you my Holiday Fit Essentials Guide, let’s first reintroduce our regimented selves to one of the greatest life lessons the holidays serve to remind us: flexibility.  Instead of having an anxiety attack over the thought of missing your weekly hot pilates class, embrace the healthy change of scenery by simplifying your workouts and creatively using your surroundings. Stairs or a fireplace are perfect for step-ups and provide just enough height to effectively target your tush.  Regardless of your heath and fitness goals, maintaining a consistent diet is fairly easy when in the comfort of your own home and regular routine.  Traveling requires a flexible diet approach by making moderation your new best friend so you can enjoy your favorite holiday foods guilt-free.  Contrary to popular belief, unless you completely gorge yourself from now until the new year, if your clothes feel snug it’s water retention. Dehydration, alcohol consumption, and sodium-rich foods cause the body to hold onto water. In order for the body to process fluids correctly it must be properly and consistently hydrated, so say hello to your second new best friend: water.

And with that, let’s get down to the nitty gritty.

adrienne zager holiday workoutHere are some more of my tried and true travel fit tips to have you returning from holiday looking better than before!

Holiday Fit Essentials Guide:

* Fruit-of-the-Loom men’s wife beaters

- I’ve used these for years. They are cheap, simple and practical. Bring a pair of sneakers, basic black workout leggings/capris and use an assortment of colorful and/or printed sport bras to change up your look.

* Resistance bands and jump rope

- These cheap buys should remain in your suitcase year-round as gym access isn’t always a guarantee. They provide diverse, effective and fast workouts in the comfort of your hotel or guest room.

* Vitamin case

- Purse-friendly way to keep your hangover headache medication, daily multivitamin, and B-complex organized.  B-complex is essential for food metabilism, energy production, digestion, relieving water retention, healthy hair/skin/nails and much more.

* Protein Powder

- Portable, quick and convenient meal on the go. Scoop what you need into a ziplock bag for easy packing. Don’t forget to include the scoop and a shaker.

* Stevia

- Best sugar substitute and will help satisfy cravings. Stevia + lemons = the perfect sugar-free lemonade and makes increasing your water intake easy.

* Detox tea

- Drink in the morning and night to gently cleanse and rid your body of toxins and water retention.

* Apple Cider Vinegar

- My holy grail for the fountain of youth and weight loss. One shot and your sugar craving is gone.  If you can’t get the shot down add 2 tbls to 8oz of lemon water and stevia to taste. The health and detox benefits of ACV are endless.
