Five Top Spring Style Tips
Also, enter our SOL REPUBLIC and
With spring supposedly here (somehow the clouds keep finding their way in front of the sun) there is much to do. No no, I’m not talking spring cleaning. That can wait. Ugh, now I’m thinking about spring cleaning. Sigh…
Openly ignoring previous thought and moving on. Along with warmer weather, blossoming flowers and baby birdies come scrumptious new fashions, fabulous new accessories, achievable new goals and somewhat healthier habits. Something about the fresh spring air motivates us and inspires us to snap out of hibernation mode and step into spring as the chic and stylish women we know we are.
With a few simple changes you can usher in the new season without feeling overwhelmed. Now, since we have oodles of great ideas for spring trends coming up, I thought I’d skip past that and offer a few simple tips that can get you into spring in just one week —this week! Read on, girls.
Number One: Best Foot Forward
Flirty footwear is always one of the first signs of spring (those gorgeous tootsies have been out of action far too long—get thee a pedicure!), so naturally we begin with pumping up your shoe selection. What better way to literally put spring in your step? Here are some styles I’m loving this spring:
The metallic sandal is great as it doubles as shoe and accessory. Not that all shoes aren’t accessories, but this style can add a nifty little kick to an otherwise plain outfit. They look especially great with this spring's sweet sundresses . And speaking of metallic's, look at these adorable little flips that I snapped up for my niece! She will be the most popular little tyke at preschool!
Pointy-toe pumps are fun and flirty, especially those with a shorter heel. Classy and chic, these sweet pumps add a perfect feminine touch to your workaday ensemble.
Ankle straps! I guarantee you are going to want at least one pair for the upcoming warmer months, so check out all the fabulous styles! From fabulous flats to sexy skyscrapers the ankle strap shoe is definitely the way to go.
Glorious green is back in full swing. The bright burst of color is sure to turn heads (in a good way, assuming you’ll not be wearing galoshes) and will certainly cheer you up
Number Two: Glowing Complexion
With shoes checked off, move on to primping. Sunny weather forecasts call for a fresh skin care regimen, among other primping matters (aka mani/pedis, facials, massages, spray tans). They say the key to healthy, glowing, youthful skin is moisture. (They also say pregnancy can lead to that healthy glow but that’s somewhat of a massive commitment, no?) Always begin and end your day with a refreshing face wash followed by a superbly hydrating moisturizer. Moisture restores youthful elasticity and volume to skin, warding off wrinkles and other so-to-speak “skin imperfections.” And for those twirty girls looking for some serious Hollywood wrinkle reduction, you might want to check out Frownies Face Lift in a Bag! (Hey, the company has been around for over 115 years—they must be doing something right!)
Also, remember your sunblock. While you may be hankering for an exotic tan after months of winter-pastiness, keep in mind the amount of skin damage done with every visit to the tanning salon (AKA wrinkles and sunspots on your face, neck and hands—the first places to show sun damage ). Your best bet is to avoid the sun altogether, but that's no fun, so just make sure you are covered. At least SPF 30—preferably 50 or higher on your face and neck. If you feel the need for that golden glow, try a great sunless tanning moisturizer, or a spray tan. Try a tinted moisturizer as an alternative, and find your perfect shade of bronzer.
Number Three: Fit and Fabulous
The other key to fabulous skin is actually connected to your overall health. When you’re in shape you not only feel better, you look better. Your body looks smashing and your skin benefits from working out and eating well (as in healthy).
You don’t necessarily have to go out and join a gym in order to get in shape, though it helps to have some kind of support system from classes. Find something you enjoy so you’ll stick with it. For instance, both of my parents are avid runners but yours truly would rather die than run two-to-four miles a day. My solution: yoga. Now if I can only get Girly to join me! What am I thinking? All I have to do is show her all the adorable yoga wear and she'll be in lotus pose before you know it!
Number Four: Sassy Spring Style
Another great way to usher in spring is through, drum roll: your wardrobe. Natch. By purchasing a few spring staples you can easily work the season’s new colors and fashions into your current collection. You don’t have to re-invent the wheel—just update it! Trade your basic blah tank for something a little sassy. Just make a few smart purchases and you are well on your way to springy goodness. And remember, looking good is for amateurs, having style is a talent!
Number Five: Accessories are a Girl's Best Friend!
Lastly, always remember to accessorize. Accessories allow the real you to shine through even the dullest of dress suits. I tend to also look toward jewelry for a simple accessorizing solution to whatever I’m donning that day. Pick up a long necklace or two for a quick and easy fix.
No matter what you are expected or required to wear, you can always bump it up with a fabulous handbag or great shoes. My fascination with aforementioned is certainly no secret here! After all, everyone knows that behind every successful woman is a great pair of heels!
Spring means starting fresh, so put your best foot forward and prep your heart away this weekend, ladies. I think maybe I ’ll be picnicking at the beach in my new floppy sunhat. Happy spring!

Bring A Taste Of Italy Home With
Häagen-Dazs® Brand New Gelato Line
I recently spent a whirlwind week in Italy (I know, I know, you wish you had my job!) and fell in love with all things Italian. The awe-inspiring landscapes, the amazing architecture, the quaint sidewalk bistros...and the gelato! If you have never had Italian gelato you have not truly lived and loved. The creamy texture, the amazing flavors, it is like nothing you have ever tasted before. I believe I actually shed a tear when I ate that last spoonful of lemon gelato shortly before boarding my plane home...
So when I heard that Häagen-Dazs® was introducing a line of gelato I was thrilled to say the least. A little taste of Italy, right here at home.
Meet ice cream’s Italian cousin, gelato. The Häagen-Dazs® brand is excited to introduce its newest thoughtfully-crafted offering, Häagen-Dazs Gelato, a smooth indulgence that is surprisingly light on your palate, yet bursting with robust flavors. Häagen-Dazs Gelato will debut with seven Italian-inspired flavors that will transport you to Italy with every spoonful.
Truly made like no other®, Häagen-Dazs Gelato uses only the finest, most essential ingredients to achieve a perfect expression of the Italian experience. Madagascar vanilla, Brazilian coffee, San Francisco sea salt, Oregon cherries and South African lemons are just some of the ingredients used to create rich and creamy gelato flavors like Stracciatella, Sea Salt Caramel, Black Cherry Amaretto and Limoncello that will transport you to Italy with every spoonful.
As the first super premium national brand to offer gelato, extra care was taken to get every detail right. Häagen-Dazs Gelato has a softer texture than regular ice-cream which creates a unique and delicious eating experience that will certainly have your readers going back for more.
Häagen-Dazs Gelato will be available nationwide beginning April 2013
(it is currently available in select Walmart stores) and will feature the following irresistible flavors:
Stracciatella Gelato - Inspired by the Italian classic, Häagen-Dazs Stracciatella gently folds rich chocolaty shavings into smooth, sweet cream gelato.
Sea Salt Caramel Gelato - Rich in flavor, Häagen-Dazs Sea Salt Caramel blends ribbons of sea salt caramel into creamy caramel gelato.
Dark Chocolate Chip Gelato - Decadent and creamy, Häagen-Dazs Dark Chocolate Chip is a perfect blend of bittersweet chocolaty chips in dark chocolate gelato.
Vanilla Bean Gelato - Elegant in flavor, Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean is a blend of rich and creamy vanilla gelato with flecks of vanilla beans.
Cappuccino Gelato - Bold and complex, Häagen-Dazs Cappuccino is a beautiful blend of cappuccino and sweet cream gelato.
Limoncello Gelato - Sweet and zesty, Häagen-Dazs Limoncello is a blend of creamy lemon gelato with vodka.
Black Cherry Amaretto Gelato- Delightfully creamy, Häagen-Dazs Black Cherry Amaretto is a blend of delicious black cherries with amaretto, an Italian liqueur.
