Need a lift from the mid-winter low? A new do could get the job done! Remember the "Rachael" in the 90's? Reese Witherspoon's post divorce bangs? And last year's sexy "Rihanna" bob? A brilliant hair do could be your secret weapon to a killer look! And when you look good, you feel good too - yes! Even in this deadly sad weather!

If you've had the same hair cut for years, it's time to have an affair with a head of new hair! Messy pixie, romantic waves, or even streaks of face-contouring highlights...Whatever you prefer.

This kind of cheating is never guilty, only gorgeous.

Have an affair with your hair, and bring some fun into the boring winter air!

Especially during the holidays, flying across the U.S to see family is unavoidable for hubby and I. After a few years, traveling light has become our forte. However light we prefer to travel, one thing that ALWAYS makes into my one backpack is moisturizer or lotion.

Up in the mile high, a commercial airplane cabin usually lacks moisture. Due to prevention of air frame corrosion, air that travels into the cabin through the engine usually goes through device called an Air Conditioning Pack that cools the air and also takes out its moisture. The dry air then circulates the cabin at 50% rate to enable efficiency. Basically, you get pretty dehydrated when you fly.

Besides asking for water, apply moisturizer and save your skin! Also, dabbing on lotion to your hands and elbows can prevent dryness too.

Flying is still a great way to travel, especially if you live far from the people you love. But you don't have to sacrafice your skin. All you need is one small minute and moisturize. And when you step off your flight, you can impress the people you haven't seen in a long time with how wonderful you look, just like how they always remembered.

Victoria has a secret and I can't wait to find out. With their semi annual, nation wide sale coming soon, I better get started.

Did you know that Victoria's Secret was started by a guy? And a smart guy he was, but really shy when he was getting his significant female other lingerie. With hopes to minimize other men's discomfort of buying lingerie for their girlfriends or wives in department stores, he opened the first Victoria's Secret store, a much more personal shopping environment for intimates with helpful staff and special-made products.

With his genius concept of a personalized lingerie store (I know, it's a girlie girl's dream, oddly dreamed up by some dude), he popularized the brand by mail orders and sold his expanding business to the Limited only 5 years later.

Now, just about every woman in the United States has Victoria's Secret somewhere in their closet. The company is known for its genius engineering in female intimates, luxurious beauty products, and the most glamorous models and runway shows we have ever witnessed.

In fact, the newest Victoria's Secret fashion show was just on TV last night, and I nearly dropped my jaws seeing the goddess-like models strut on the run way.

Alright, I may never find out Victoria's Secret. In fact, Victoria probably doesn't have a secret. But it sure makes a great name for a lingerie store. I do think it's sweet that this guy, the inventor of the original Victoria's Secret store, turned his love and thoughtfulness for the girl he loved into the perfect business concept.

See? Do what you love and the money will come. For him, it all started with love. Perhaps that is the best secret of all.


Not sure when I started to wear my knee high boots? But once I started, I can't stop! Sexy, warm and statement-making, my boots are the perfect accessories for cold weather outfits. Or actually, ANY outfit! Whether paired with a lovely wool skirt for work, or worn over skinny denim, they never fail to make a fashionable statement!

For me, I especially like them in the rainy Seattle winter. Stepping over the wet ground with my boots is much better than staining and wetting expensive work pants.

Ever heard of the statement "If the shoe fits, wear them"? Well, the statement goes for boots too. And yes, these boots are made for walking. But they are also made to make you, my girlie girl friend, look sexy, fashionable and so amazing!
