Oh! What A Good idea*

Gals, when you’re Polished for Pennies, it’s all about thinking creatively, out of the box, and looking for the potential in everything. From what you wear and how you wear it. From what you eat to how you eat it. From what your life may bring you to how you handle it. We’re forced to […]

Ready in Rouge*

For some reason… the words “Oh La la” made me think of red, so for that reason I had to bust out this vintage red dress that I’ve been DYING to wear for quite some time that I bought at The Nest Vintage in Glenside! For under $15 this little Pan Am inspired, mod, bow neck dress […]

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.

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 […]

Oh, home is this way…

I write a Lifestyle Confidence Blog, as you know, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t lose direction at times. I’ll admit, sometimes I feel pressure to be somewhere, or be someone, or figure out every question of life all at once. Even the things that don’t need answering right now. Especially, when around me or […]

AH-Ha’s and Oh La La’s

I came across this photo on heragenda.com, a blog that’s super inspirational for a gal looking to keep her career agenda on track and her mind right to be bold and sharp enough to do it, but this photo struck a cord. The author of this specific article, that featured this photo, was talking about how […]

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 […]

Oh La La Ode to a Simple Dinner*

The first thing that came to mind when I wanted to throw a dinner for friends with an ode to “Oh La La October”, was the thought of a simple meal with special details that wouldn’t break the bank. A simple meal that would still be sophisticated and tasty, but decorated by a table that […]

#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 […]
