No you are not too old to rock metallic sneakers. In fact, you really need to get a pair for spring. I am adding it to your list of items you MUST buy for spring.
Due to some recent allergies I have become somewhat of an expert on organic beauty and I thought, why not try mascaras even though mascaras are one of the few things I didn’t have to change from my routine. I figure, It can’t hurt to use a more natural mascara, right? But I tried a few organic mascaras a few years ago and they, ahem, kinda sucked. They either clumped like crazy or just slid off my lashes after a few hours of wear. It was a gooey mess.
Who knew Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ song would become a trend? What am I talking about? The circle or ring hardware trend of course. I’m not talking about polka dots either. Look at some of your favorite accessories however and you will notice some sort of ring detailing.
If there is one color you simply must add to your wardrobe this spring it’s blush! The blush fashion trend for spring feels feminine without being too girly and neutral without being too boring. Pantone nailed it when they made Rose Quartz the color of the year.Yes, you have probably noticed this pale pink hue is everywhere! Jackets, knits, jeans,…

Even though some of us are buried in snow, spring is not that far off so I’m getting my wardrobe together. One accessory that’s totally on trend for Spring ’17 is the striped handbag. Vertical, horizontal or blocked, it doesn’t matter as long as you carry the “it” print of the season.
I am a woman and I am a whiskey drinker. Well, I wasn’t always one but in the past 6 years or so I have really come to enjoy some bourbons and whiskeys. Especially American whiskies which tend to have a sweeter finish than Scottish and Irish whiskies which can be a little too peaty and bitter for me. One particular whiskey brand I adore is Hudson Whiskey. I’m sure you have seen the hip glass apothecary-style bottles at your favorite upscale urban restaurant or hipster watering hole. It’s now distributed internationally but is still a craft whiskey made lovingly at the original distillery in the Hudson Valley.
Since I discovered last fall that I have developed allergies to at least a dozen chemicals (many of which are found in beauty products) I have had to literally change everything in my life. That includes not only what I put on my face and body. but what I use on my hair. Now I use organic shampoos and conditioners.
It’s spring so it’s time to go green! St. Patrick’s Day is less than two weeks away and let’s face it, on that day everybody is Irish! A bright kelly or emerald green is also a great sign that warmer days are just around the corner. So if you can rock the color now is the time!
One style of pant that seems to go in and out of style is wide leg trousers and guess what? They are back in again for Spring ’17. In fact they have been going in and out of style since the 40’s.
As you know some of my posts are inspired from what I am searching for and for spring/summer I am on the hunt for tops with exaggerated sleeves! I want them to be my signature style for spring. I’ve heard names like bell sleeves, trumpet sleeves and just jacked up long sleeves…but I want them ALL!
In this Aging Parents episode Lauren and Joan discuss the harsh reality of watching your parent’s get older. In two words; it’s rough (I wanted to say “it sucks”). Witnessing your once vibrant parents become more fragile is tough stuff but something we all deal with by the time we reach our 40’s and 50’s…
Valentine’s Day has come and gone and what are you left with? Dead roses. Not me. I would rather have a bottle of rose perfume I can wear all year long. Make that several bottles of rose perfumes. Truth is, I can take or leave a dozen roses but I cannot resist rose fragrances.
We decided to have some fun in the name of fashion this fashion week on our Instagram account (@fountainof30). Why can’t a 40-something lifestyle blogger walk the fashion week runways? Carol and and I had the brilliant idea to overlay my head on models walking the runway during New York Fashion Week Fall ’17 and now we are continuing it through London and Milan.
Let’s face it, most beauty trends for fashion shows are for just that, show. They can be very extreme or very minimalist (so you actually look at the clothes and not the models). However there are some beauty and hair trends from NYFW Fall ’17 that actually make it to real life from these shows. Just like you would not…
