Oh La La October*

Fall is here and there’s something romantic about it. Whether you’re feeling a crisp breeze or scoping out a sweet layered look that makes you say Oh! Oh la la October is all about that. The everything and anything that makes you feel dreamy, golden, romantic, chic, cozy, warm, lit, and seductive. This month we want you […]


Even Sporty-er Starlet*

I don’t know Gals… As much as I love to doll up, I’ve been diggin’ the athletic trend that’s been happening right now. Probably because prior to getting caught up in girly style, I dressed like a tomboy during my adolescence. Seriously. Baggy pants, Nautica jackets, high-top “Princess” Reebok’s and the list goes on and on! […]


Skirted Starlet*

Gals, I’m not generally a skirt wear-er. Going to be honest. Unless it’s a high waisted below the knee length, I usually steer clear, BUT a true Starlet this September puts herself out there… She takes risks! She stands on the stage in a brown paper bag if she has to all knowing that she […]


Sporty Starlet*

Love me some overalls!! Girlll…… I know, I know, but I had to. If you’re not into a sweet pair of overalls, I completely understand, but may I say these super easy, comfortable, and stylish overalls for $24.99 at Marshalls gave this starlet a gal on the go look with a SUPER sporty edge! With back to […]

  We talked about “One Piece of Pop” when it came to an article of clothing, but that trick applies to accessorizing too! Sometimes that’s all it takes to make an outfit great! So whether it’s date night, wine night, disco night, or your OPENING NIGHT Starlet… whip out that POP and make your personality jump […]


Gift Yourself: An Iphone Case

Sometimes it’s just those little things. Those very little things, treats, that we need to feel good. Items and things that are merely bought for a few shiny pennies, but shine up our mood and keep us excited and polished! This everyday your birthday I found the coolest designer Iphone case at Homegoods! It’s a Jordan […]

Cake Batter Lips*

Luscious and lovely, this Everyday Your Birthday made us think of CAKE! What could be more decadent and desirable than a HUGE, SLICE OF CAKE! We don’t think anything… and in that case, it got us thinking! Sure, we love POPs of pinks and oranges this summer, but we also still love the seducing ways a nude […]


Gift Yourself: A Notepad

Kindles and computers are all great, but sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing and calming than putting a pen or pencil to some paper. Whether it’s to journal, to write your to-do list, to draw, or to dream up your master plan for your future master bedroom, a beautiful leather notepad may be just the gift […]

All You Have Is This

All you have is your name. Your brand. Your signature move. Your John Hancock. Your responsibility to make sure that when people hear it, learn it, know it… it reflects exactly what you want it to. With any starlet, there comes that responsibility. But it’s not just for the famous or infamous, that duty to portray […]

Eyes All On You Starlet

Pressures. Spotlights. Eyes… Eyes all on you… “The only thing to fear is fear itself,” as it’s been once said. Fear. It manipulates. It weighs you down. It dims your light. If, and that’s if, you allow it. Don’t. Put yourself in the spotlight, the center of the ring, the terrifying place you’ve been putting off […]


How to Be a Starlet

Sometimes we need to be the light that no one sees. We need to stare into the eyes of friends, family, and strangers and see the things we know are there. We must star those stars… not everyone see’s falling stars… but that’s why WE must be different. We must try to be there for them […]


*A Starlet September*

This month isn’t really about celebrity… it’s about self value. It’s about self confidence. It’s about looking at yourself in all your beauty through your own lenses and seeing your spark. Seeing all that you are and putting yourself on that pedestal to be admired, not by others, but feeling proud of yourself. Proud that you’ve […]


Even if You’re Brokeness.

You know, I never really thought there was an upside to being broke… but there is. I know what you’re thinking… this chick is a total nut job! How could digging in the couch cushions for change, crying in the shower because of your student loans, cringing at the sight of creditors on the caller […]

#GiveAPenny: Zarina

How beautiful is Zarina in her baseball cap!  Standing sweetly by the register at Starbucks, Zarina complimented my H&M dress that’s probably about 3 years old. She made my oldie feel goodie by just being herself and sharing her confidence. A beautiful gal inside and out deserves the shout! Thank you Zarina for being wonderful […]
