Can this outfit get any better? I just love the burst of yellow color in Jessica Alba's skirt and the sweet simplicity of the white tube top. Paired with Jimmy Choo heels, this look is pure red carpet perfection.

Here is my own take on this fab look:

It may be only Wednesday, but I am dreaming of the weekend. But this is the kind of breakfast that you can't rush through on a weekday morning: Eggs Hollandaise and Bacon



I saw this recipe in the March issue of Glamour and had to clip it for the weekend. Here are the deets with a few of my own modifications for oils and quality ingredients.

What you Need: 
Chive Hollandaise 
3 grass-fed egg yolks 8 tbsp. butter, melted 2 chives, chopped 1/2 tsp. lemon juice 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste 

 Potato Hash 
2 tbsp. coconut oil or beef tallow 2 large Idaho potatoes, diced 1 12-oz. pack thick-cut smoked bacon, diced 2 white onions, diced 

 Eggs 
1 tbsp. distilled vinegar 1 tbsp. pink himalaya salt 8 eggs 4 chives, for garnish 

 To make hollandaise: In a small pot over medium heat, whisk egg yolks and 1 tbsp. water until yolks thicken. Whisk in butter, chives, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Set aside. 

To make hash: Heat oil in a cast-iron pan on high heat. Fry potatoes, stirring occasionally, until cooked through and lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crispy, about 5 minutes. Set aside; drain grease from pan. In the same pan, saute onion until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add bacon and onion to potatoes. Keep warm. 

To make eggs: Fill medium pot with water, add vinegar and salt; bring to a simmer. Crack an egg into a bowl, then swirl the simmering water in one direction with a whisk. Drop egg into the water and let it cook until white is firm, about 3 minutes. Remove egg with slotted spoon; put on paper-towel-lined plate. Repeat for the other eggs. 

To serve: Divide hash into four bowls, and top with two poached eggs, a drizzle of hollandaise, and chives. Serves 4.


Lupita just keeps winning. The recent Oscar winner just because the new face of Lancôme, and she looks stunning in this first photo. The glowing actress made this statement:
"I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history and that I have always loved. I am particularly proud to represent its unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman's freedom to be herself.”
We hope that more beauty companies continue this trend, making beautiful and intelligent women of all colors the standard.


Lavish Body Inspiration: A tone, fit back, achieved with planks.

First, there was Yoga to the People, a donation-based class on St Marks Place in NYC offering round-the clock-yoga classes for students, hipsters, fashion elites and yoga-junkies alike. Now there's The People's Bootcamp, a bare bones, gritty, pay-as-you wish drop in class that aims to get you fit through pure, hard work, without killing your wallet. The classes "sell out" fast so you have to keep checking the website for availability.

I am personally on my own fitness journey back to my hard-body dancer days, and I've hired a personal trainer to help see me through. But you'd better believe that I've got my eyes on this workout collective, and will join as soon as there is an opening. I mean, pay what you wish? It doesn't get much better than that!

"With fashion...it's about 
knowing yourself"


So says Kelis in the March issue of Schon Magazine where she discusses her personal relationship with style, her son, Knight, and her new love affair with food, which heavily influences her new album of the same name. I met Kelis way back in early 2005 when she was still married to Nas, and they were both incredibly sweet, warm and humble people who appreciated each other's craft and individual style. 

Kelis has always been a style influence for me, as she constantly steps out of her own shell, with earnestness and without insecurity or pretense (not naming names here, but you can come to your own conclusions).
