Style Motivation to get yp up and going to be your best self!
Best Of The Holidays… I thought it would be a good time for a little (life)style motivation. A time to take ten and nurture ourselves when it seems like there isn’t a slot left on the calendar to even think about it. The end of the year is usually a jam-packed time around here, as it is, I am sure for most of you. Sometimes, I feel like one of my fancy dressed lady ornaments hanging on my tree. […]

Palm Spings in the style mix, baby! It’s been a throwback, go forward time around here. If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or even Twitter, you probably saw some snaps I shared from my trip to Palm Springs.

Sometimes, you need a little kick to get out of your comfort zone and that’s what this post is about. So kiss that style rut bye-bye.– S.H. The other night I was sick. Really sick. A case of food poisoning to rival that scene in The Exorcist times seven. The following day had me feeling like I was bitten […]
Boost your mood from the feet up with the not this, wear that shoe guide Can you change your attitude or boost your mood depending on what shoes you are wearing? YEAH, baby, you sure can! Here’s the thing, I cannot even count how many times I get asked about what shoe to wear with what outfit. So much so that I wrote the Ultimate Shoe Guide to solve that conundrum once and for all. But, it’s not the matchy-matchyness […]
Let’s reflect to timeless advice on starting the New Year in YOUR best style. Liar, liar… my big, empty promise to myself and why New Year’s style resolutions hardly ever work… It’s the start of the new year, and where are you? In my over 20 years in the style business, I have never once thought that truly being stylish came from a check list at the start of the year. I don’t bother with resolutions of any kind anymore. If I was really going […]
This week’s Summer Spotlight theme pulls from some of my favorite style motivation posts. I don’t want you ever to take style or fashion too seriously because you lose the spontaneity that makes it all so interesting. And unique to you. Lighten and move forward… it’s only fashion. – S.H. Ok, I was (sort of) eavesdropping. Here I was, out and about, having an espresso and couldn’t help but listen the one-sided conversation of the girl across the coffee bar. You know the type. […]
BEAUTY IS HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF- You don’t have to wiggle like Marilyn, or have a camera focused on your face to beguile, but you do have to radiate inner beauty to hold the spotlight. Discover self-admiration. Feel praiseworthy about yourself. Glow.
