10 Influential Women Fashion Designers Who Have Changed the Industry Forever
I'm a huge fan of fashion myself and my all-time favorite brand, Chanel, really struck me with their styles and choices of color and materials. I love everything from the brand's purses to their fragrances... even though I can barely afford any of it. I always thought Chanel was classy and timeless with their designs. I also know that Coco Chanel is the creator behind the brand and loved how Chanel is a true feminine brand. I learned it's okay to be feminine through her fashion. However, I wanted to understand more about Coco's motives and inspirations.
10 Fashion Brands That Help Support Women Around the Globe
Fashion is a form of art that gives everyone the privilege to express and define themselves through what they wear. Many women out there use fashion to show their true colors, be confident and courageous, and never listen to those who judge their style in clothing. Women, even today, aren't being treated as how they should be, and it's really unfortunate. There were crazy things women couldn't do 50 years ago, and we've come a long way. So you'd think in 2018 that us women would feel like we're equal in this world, but there are still so many cases that we aren't. Our appearance, profession, and overall presence are constantly being criticized without giving us a break.
Cutest Korean Office Supplies That You Need to Have on Your Desk
Your motivation to work and amount of productivity definitely gets affected by what's laying around on your office desk. My desk used to be filled with really boring, black and white material, from pens to planners, folders, and even my laptop bag was black. At first, I wanted to look professional and minimize color for more sophistication, but I was wrong. I was really bored with the way my desk accessories looked. My desk looked lifeless and dull compared to what my coworkers had on their desks: colorful pens, folders, and even potted plants.

Hacks to Help You Stop Stressing About Your Future and Start Living
Even at the age of 23, I am constantly thinking about the future. I am always trying to plan way ahead and not think about what I am going to do the next day. The future sounds like a long time from now, and I know this, but I can't stop myself from thinking about what I'll be doing when I'm 30. The more I think about the future, the more it was stressing me out. It stressed me out to the point of worrying and from then, I knew that I needed to calm down.
8 Tips to Make Your Blowout Last Longer
I'll only blowout my hair for an event or if I'm going out the entire weekend because I want my hair to look its best. Who doesn't? The first day I blowout my hair, it always looks amazing. My hair looks fresh, shiny, and full of volume! However, when it comes to the following days, my hair slowly starts to look flatter and gets oiler and oiler. Since I have a lot of thin hair, my hair tends to get oily fast and I hate it.
Best Corkscrew Wine Openers of 2018
It was Friday and I burst out of the doors at work and headed home, already salivating over the wine at home. I had no plans but to "wine" down with a bottle and binge watch The Office. The more eager I was to drink the wine, the rougher I was trying to open the bottle. Then the worst thing happened—the cork split in half. I cursed at my new corkscrew for being the cheapest tool ever.
Best Skincare Products for Your 30s
We should always properly take care of our skin despite our age. Your skin will never consistently be its youthful-looking self, but there are methods to keep it looking great at least. When my sister hit 30, she realized that she should be taking care of her skin more these days. She didn't really use the best skincare products during her 20s, but now that she noticed a few fine lines and crow's feet by her eyes, these were the signs that it was time to fully focus on her skin.
10 Ways to Naturally Make Your Pores Smaller
I have massive... massive pores. I feel like no matter what product I use, nothing is shrinking my pores because I can clearly still see them. Even the more high-end products that are specifically designed to hide your pores don't work on me. Having large pores is super annoying because not only are they visible when I don't have any makeup on, but they're extremely visible when I want to hide everything with foundation, concealer, and setting powder. This is why I'm very fixated on decreasing the size of my pores.
We Tried Peter Thomas Roth's Mask-A-Holic Kit, and Here's What We Thought
I’m a total skincare addict and I’ve tried out so many types of skincare products out there. I don’t use skincare products to enhance my skin, but to improve my skin. Yes, there’s a fine line between the two. I have a couple of problems with my skin. Some are bearable and some make me just want to rip the skin right off of my face. I’m insanely insecure about my skin and I’m simply looking for products to help me out. Can’t a girl get a break from her terrible skin for once?
10 Reasons You Need to Try Facial Beauty Rollers
As we get older, our skin slowly starts to lose its youthful glow. We deal with teenage acne, gain crow's feet from constantly straining our eyes, and overall see fine lines and wrinkles around our mouth and forehead as our age goes up. Our bodies change, too, like getting stretch marks from pregnancy or rapidly gaining or losing weight. We dwell on the fact that our youthful-looking skin will soon be substituted with wrinkled, scarred skin and we assume that nothing will bring us back to the days when our skin was spotless and plump.
Tips for Passing the Sommelier Certification
Whenever I head out for dinner to a really high-end restaurant, I always fancy the sommeliers that would serve me. They're much more experienced and knowledgeable in wine than anyone I've ever come across. Even the way they served caught my attention because it's so distinct and in the most precise manner. I once went to River Palm Terrance in Edgewater, New Jersey, and the steakhouse is pretty high-end. While the sommelier was serving us wine, he looked at my glass, noticed the smallest speck (I didn't even notice it), and said, "I don't like this glass. I'm going to fetch you a much better one." He returned with the cleanest wine glass I've ever seen and served me my wine.
