Fashion Trends: How to Find Your Perfect Fall Coat

By Brittany Dobbins

Fall has finally come, which means it’s time to take out the knitwear, scarves, gloves and layer-up for the colder weather. With the varying coats for this season, it can be a bit confusing making it hard to pick out the right one. Personally, I prefer to focus my autumn outerwear wardrobe on the essentials and variety, rather than what’s “in style” right now. Instead of having coats that limit the look you want to put together due to mismatching, try finding a coat that is more versatile and can complement your outfit. Now, let´s see how to wear this timeless fashion trend...

How to Spice-up Your Coffee!

By Avery Carruthers

Hello fashionistas! Long time no see! 

As we all know, my love for coffee runs deep, as if caffeine literally flows through my veins. I enjoy a good cup of coffee anytime of the day, seven days a week. Personally, I prefer a smooth blonde roast with a few pumps of vanilla, but that's just me.

Since having worked at Starbucks for over two years, I guess you can say I know a lot about coffee. From the roast type to their unique characteristics, I am (almost) able to answer any question you may have. So how does one spice up their coffee?

Home Decor Ideas: Mix of Chic and Fabulous

Inspiration from the Homes of the Chic and Fabulous


Over the summer, I came across a book at the library called, "In The Pink: Dorothy Draper". A few flips of the pages and I was hooked. Dorothy Draper is one of the most iconic interior designers, famous for her signature cabbage rose chintz fabric and frequent use of stripes. Since then, I've been scouring the web for beautiful interiors, adding to my arsenal of dream room ideas. In this post, I have five home decor ideas of my favorite celebrity homes; an eclectic mix of people from all over the fashion industry...

Midi Skirts for the Fall

By Amra B. 

I am a big fan of midi skirts, and this autumn I managed to find some in a beautiful array of fall colors. I am especially crazy about this deep orange color and how easily it can be paired up with other pieces in my closet; I wear it with black blazer and a simple black t-shirt, cropped sweater, or a graphic print (like I did in the photos below). 

Midis are my go to choice for the office look, and I have found them to be particularly fun for the weekend with a crop top as well. Below are some suggestions on how to wear midis this fall:

If you want to see the all the beauty that the Northern Lights offer, you’ll need to go to the Northern Hemisphere during the months of March, April, September, and October.

The Struggles of Post-Grad Life

By Catherine Santino 

After graduating from college last year, I went through a particularly difficult period. I was living at home, unsure of what it was I wanted to do, and generally confused about life. I felt like people saw me as unmotivated because I was working a million part-time jobs and didn’t seem to have any real direction. I felt this immense pressure to have it all figured out, since so many of my friends had full time jobs and after all, that’s what college is supposed to be preparing you for.


But college doesn’t prepare you for the messiness and confusion that usually ensues after you graduate. There’s so much expectation to start a career and know exactly what you want. But what I realized after a long and difficult year is that it’s okay to not have a plan. That it’s more important to know what you’re interested in and what you’re good at than to have one specific career goal in mind. It’s also important to put yourself out there. Explore your interests, hone your skills, and be open to any and all opportunities to grow.

Snacking: What should you eat and how often?


Everyone loves to snack. In fact, some days we may feel the need to snack more than others. It’s easy to just snack whenever we want and eat whenever we want, but that is never a good idea for our figure. So what exactly should we eat and how often?

8 Hidden Seattle Gems


By Avery C.

“A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams,” said Herb Caen. As many of you know, I have lived in Seattle my entire life. Some know it as the Emerald City, whereas others instantly think of coffee (Starbucks, am I right?). However, Seattle embodies so much more.

Don’t let the rain fool you because Seattle is an amazing city. Besides, it really doesn’t rain that often; it’s just cloudy 300 days out of the year J In order to make up for the weather, this city contains some of the best coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques in the country (I may be a little biased).



If you are ever looking to visit the beautiful Northwest, definitely stop by Seattle because the minute you enter the city, you are quickly be embraced by the fresh air, the Puget Sound breezes and the extravagant art. In order to make your stay a little easier, check out these....

How to Decorate Your Home For Fall

By Avery Carruthers

Who here is sad that summer is quickly coming to an end? I don't know about you, but as the days come to a close, I become more and more excited for fall! In Seattle, fall is an amazing time of year that I often welcome with open arms. The air is crisp, the leaves turn brown, and the pumpkin spice lattes are in full effect (even though they came early this year). 



However, I understand that not everyone is as eager for fall as I am. For some, fall represents the beginning of a new school year, or the transitioning of one job to another. Nonetheless, I am here to challenge all of YOU to stop dreading autumn and to EMBRACE it! Through these helpful home interior design pieces, hopefully they will help you look forward to the new season.

Fashion Trends: Pajamas & How to Pull Off the Look

By Amra B.

Many times I have dreamed about rolling out of bed and wearing my pajamas to school or office.  I thought about how great it would feel if we didn’t have to think about our attire for the day and instead would feel cozy and comfortable now matter where we went… Well, great news: I have FINALLY found my solution! The sleek design of the new silky suits makes me feel like I skipped a workday... Best of all, this pajama style is incredibly chic and totally appropriate for the office and even a cocktail party (just add pair of killer heels and some bright lipstick).

Why Writing is Therapeutic

By Elma B.

Over the years, I have used my notepad as my most trusted confidant for whom nothing is beyond her level of comprehension and no thought is too private to share. Bare with me--have you ever had an experience upon which you would like to reflect, perhaps in detail, in order to learn? At that particular point in time, there was no one you could share this experience with--perhaps it was a tumultuous day at work, a relationship gone awry or simply a moment on a beautiful spring day you wanted to savor.  

Almost all of us have a jumble of thoughts that interrupt each other inside of our head as we process our everyday experiences. One sort of therapy is meditation, which helps stop the banter and provides the kind of withdrawal that fosters peace within us. Another sort of therapy, which serves as a catharsis to the chaotic thoughts racing through our mind, is writing. 

I prefer writing, if I had to choose between the two, because it resembles cognitive therapy, where by releasing your experiences onto the notepad, all of a sudden your life does not seem as chaotic. Writing sheds perspective. Or, all of a sudden, there are no longer two or three options but only one that seems so clear after writing down the pros and cons of the other two. Without further ado, here are the...

Runway Makeup For Everyday

By Catherine Santino

Runway Inspired Makeup For Everyday

This season, there have been some outrageous makeup trends on the runways. These looks are great for complementing designs in a fashion show, but aren’t all that appropriate to wear in everyday life. However, we can take inspiration from these makeup styles and adapt them to a more understated look. I’ve found three runway looks that are easily adaptable for everyday wear, but can still add a bit of a dramatic flair.

Top 5 Energy Boosting Foods

By Sarah Baker

Ever feel sluggish and tired and just assume you didn’t get enough sleep? OR feel slow and unproductive around lunch time? It may be more than just lack of sleep. It may be the foods that you are eating. There are foods that both make you tired and give you energy. It’s possible that you just aren’t eating enough of the food that gives you energy and too much of the foods that takes it away. 


Foods that you should make sure you are getting plenty of in your diet are those that consist of protein, complex carbohydrates, high fiber, high carbs, magnesium, dopamine, norepinephrine, B-12, and water. I will be discussing a list of foods you should incorporate into your daily diet to help raise your energy levels, and a list of foods you should avoid that slow down your productivity.

10 Traits of Successful People

By Elma B.

Recently, I attended a speech by a sort of a Internet legend James Altucher, and was inspired to write the 10 traits of successful people. In fact, I asked him what he saw throughout the years were traits of successful people possessed, and he answered the following...

Before I continue, let me clarify that in this article I will define success as influence or affluence. I acknowledge that there are many shapes and forms of successes, and that you can be successful without being influential or having a high net-worth. With that said, this post focuses on the former two.

After much digging, I listened to speeches by some of my favorites like Anthony Robbins, Richard St. John on TED and spoke with James Altucher, I came-up with a sound list of the 10 traits of successful people.

This is something that has been of interest to me for quite some time, so I am excited to share it with you! Without further ado, here are the...

Why I Look Forward To the Fall

By Amra B. 

I am a summer baby, I was born in July and sun is my ruling planet (I am a Leo). Accordingly, I loathe the idea of the summer ending and trying to embrace the new season almost seems unnatural.  However, the thought of never witnessing another Halloween or eating pumpkin pie also seems unbearable. It is those beautiful shades of yellow and red that had made me witness the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. Could fall possibly be another favorite season?

What Is the Best Time to Exercise?

Is There a Best Time to Exercise?

When is the best time to exercise? Is there a best time? Does it really matter? After having difficulties developing a consistent exercise routine, these are questions I was determined to find the answers to.

There are three major times during the day that you can exercise. Morning, afternoon (lunch time), and evening. I’m going to break down these times to figure out which, if any, offers a better exercise.

Office Chic: A Guide to Finding the Perfect Outfit for Work

By Brittany Dobbins

I’m sure all women struggle with finding the perfect outfit for work; you can wear something that shows just a little bit of skin but yet classy and chic. For example, if you are going to a work party with co-workers, you might want to wear a chic black high-wasted pencil skirt with a white button-down sheer blouse and heels. Showing too much skin can give people (your co-workers) the wrong idea, a little FYI: you are not at a club. It is a work event. There is a difference! I think many young women are tired of wearing work clothes everyday, but what could help is if you accessorize or try wearing something that is colorful and less boring!

The Little Things

By Amra B. 

It often seems like we focus only on big things, the once in a while exceptional occurrences, and seldom acknowledge the everyday beauty that surrounds us. I have found myself guilty of this very thing; while I am focused on one thing that is missing from my life, I become blind to everything else that is just “perfect.” Below is my list of the little everyday pleasures we enjoy but take for granted: 


Cheaper Alternatives to Designer Bags


By Avery Carruthers

Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Hermes, Prada… It is undeniable that designer handbags have revolutionized the world of fashion. To some, a Chanel bag is more than just an accessory; it makes them feel powerful. I have to admit, I love all of these designers. I mean, who doesn’t? But, I also think a boundary is often crossed when it comes to designer goods: Are women allowing these bags to define them? Have designer labels become a status symbol in our society?


Top Reasons To Keep a Gratitude Journal

By Elma B.

 Is the glass half empty or half full? 

We often hear this idiom and understand its meaning but do we actually implement it in our lives? My guess, for most of us, is no. I often focus and dwell on what is missing in my life rather than taking the time to think about all the other bits and pieces that I am extremely greatful for.  In fact, the so called "missing tile syndrome" becomes so strong that it overshadows all the other positive factors in our lives and can sometimes lead to crankiness, anxiety and even outright depression. The question begs, what is the solution?

Why Style Is Important

Amra B. 

In light of the interview I recently did for a UK style magazine, I wanted to discuss what style means to me. I think that many may shun the topic of “style” and “fashion” as purely “superficial,” but I insist that addressing this topic means addressing a deeper aspect of the human psyche. We admire many people for their style, but what is it that really intrigues us about these “simple forms of garments?”

Fall is rapidly approaching, and that means changing-up your makeup. In the summer, it’s all about the bronzy, shimmery eyes, glowing skin, and trying to keep the sweltering heat from melting all of your makeup off. In the fall, however, we can afford to apply a little extra lipstick or eyeshadow without worrying about that. Three things I think we can expect to see a lot of this season are dark mauvy lipstick, rose colored blush, and bold-winged eyeliner. Here is the scoop...

The Timeless Fashion Trend: Turbans

Edited by Elma B.

There is this timeless and fabulous fashion trend--the turban that keeps making its way back into the fashion world! I want to give you the full scoop on all things turban--what is it, its history, and style icons wearing turbans. 


What Is a Turban?


A turban is a simple piece of cloth, which is placed around the head or, as in some cases, there is a hat inside. This head piece can be of different shapes, sizes and colors. The cloth is very difficult to wear if it is more than five meters (about 16 ft. 4 in.) long. Thus, for more dramatic and large turbans, it will be a tad bit difficult to style. 



The History of the Turban:

5 Bad Habits To Break Now

By Elma B.

Recently, I watched a TED talk by psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen, where he explained that by changing our brain, we can change our life. I have been intrigued by neurology for quite some time; so, I eagerly tuned in. It was fascinating to find out that our daily habits directly shape our brain; for instance, the brains of alcoholics, drug addicts and retired NFL football players looked significantly different than normal-healthy brains. Hence, we were the ones ultimately shaping our own health, i.e., our physical and mental well-being. 

Now, you may ask yourself, how exactly can I change my own brain? The amazing news is that you can change your brain by changing your habits. Here are some of Dr. Amen's suggestions, and I have added my own thoughts as well.

How to Wear a Turban

By Amra B. 

Turbans have been my obsession since I was a child; my grandmother use to wear one, and always looked so elegant and beautiful with her turbans. Later, I developed my own appreciation as I started collecting head wraps. I finally found this vintage black turban in a NYC store and fell in love; it is black and goes well with almost everything. The shape is very flattering and fits nicely on every face shape.

Best Pre-Workout Foods

By Sarah Baker


Pre-workout food: what's good to eat?


Food is essential for a good workout. In order to get the most from your workout, you need to get the most from your pre-workout meal. Did you know that most of the fuel burned during a workout comes from the carbs and fats that are stored? There is enough stored for 1-2 hours of very intense exercise or 3-4 hours of moderate exercise. Therefore, it’s actually more important what you eat 3-4 hours before you workout. You should eat a large meal at that point. A small meal is good for about 2-3 hours before you workout and a small snack 30-60 minutes before you workout. 



How to Wear Blue Eye Makeup Tutorial

By Catherine Santino

You may think that blue eye makeup is a thing of the past, but this season’s looks has proven that to be completely false. Chanel’s 2014 Resort Collection was all about a bold, graphic winged eye paired with bright blue shadow. I think it’s a gorgeous and completely unique look, but it’s not totally wearable. However, I think it’s a great source to draw inspiration for your summer makeup looks. Incorporating bold blue tones into your eye makeup is a great way to add a fresh, bold, summery feel to your look. Here is my turquoise and blue eye-makeup tutorial:

I consider myself to be quite lucky. Why am I so lucky you may ask? Well folks, today, I get the pleasure of writing about one of my greatest passions in life: coffee. I am a firm believer that a great cup of coffee can change your day in the best possible way.

From Cherry Street Coffee House to Tully’s to Uptown Espresso, I have taste-tested beans imported from around the globe.
