Style Icon: Taylor Swift

From country, to glam, and even hipster prep; she's done it all. As I am typing this, Taylor Swift is speaking on the red carpet of the 2013 VMA's looking fabulous as always. After her album RED came out earlier this year, she ditched her cowboy boots for oxfords and Ray Bans adapting yet another new style. Although I do miss country Taylor, this new straight haired and red lipped singer is at the top of her fashion game. She is regularly seen sporting neutral colored dresses and oxford shirts paired with skinny jeans and leather handbags. Being a big fan of the "classic" look myself, I think Taylor is a great representative of the style. At first I wasn't sure I could handle another T Swift style change, but now I think it's great she's taking risks and expressing such modern slight hipster-like style. Keep on being stylish Taylor! Can we go shopping together soon?

Eyebrows: Tips for Tweezing

Tweezing your eyebrows can be a major pain, I'm a regular tweezer and I've learned some do's and don'ts over the are some tips for the perfect brows!

  • Wait to tweeze until after you've taken a shower, the steam will help soften your eyebrow hairs and make tweezing less painful.
  • If you can't stand the pain, numb your eyebrow with an ice cube.
  • Brush your eyebrows up, it might look silly but it will help you see the hairs you need to pluck.
  • Use a regular mirror, not magnified, or else you'll start plucking hairs you don't need to.
  • Figure out where your natural arch is before you start to pluck, or else you might go overboard.
  • Do not over pluck! If you do you'll have to wait a few weeks until you look normal again, yikes.
  • Once you are finished, brush your eyebrows up again and trim the tops with small cosmetic scissors.
