Celebrities Coming Out of the Infertility Closet
Huffington Post - 2 months
When I was going through fertility treatment, "E! News" anchor Giuliana Rancic and the first "Apprentice" winner, Bill Rancic, had a reality show called, Giuliana And Bill. On it, they shared their experience with In Vitro Fertilization, miscarriage and the emotional rollercoaster one in six go through to conceive. At the time, I didn't watch the show as I felt I was already living it but I had great respect for their openness. The show shined a light on infertility issues but on a personal level, it helped my mother gain insight into my life so she could better support me. Lately, there seems to be a growing amount of celebrities that are sharing their path (or rocky road depending) on trying to have a baby. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have recently opened up about their experience with IVF and the use of pre-genetic screening (PGS) to have their daughter, Luna. John Legend was quoted as saying, "People shouldn't be ashamed of their fertility struggles" and I think so many who ha ...

Golden Globes Set Glamorous Tone for Hair in 2016
Huffington Post - about 1 year
We're off to a fantastic start for 2016 with the Golden Globes putting hair front and center for fashion with lots of glamorous styles to follow. Colors remained mostly tone-on-tone with beautiful, but subtle, variations. We did see some stars wearing their hair with a darker base at the roots and some lighter pieces in a balayage treatment to create a soft and sexy look. Overall, we're staying with more natural looks and soft transitions. One of my favorite actresses, Kate Hudson, wore her hair in simple, sexy soft waves in a blend of different blonde shades, parted down the middle, a no-fuss style but with lots of enchanting depth. Olivia Wilde had a similar style but in a different flavor with darker roots, something we've seen a lot of recently, and some balayage treatment for that sun-kissed natural look and some highlights around the face. There were lots of asymmetrical styles, too, at varying lengths with parts deep on the side, the hair pulled over, but that doesn't ...

Rob Kardashian Posts Rare Instagram Supporting Sister Kylie
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Despite their differences, there's one thing that always brings the Kardashian family back together: product promotion.  Rob Kardashian threw up a rare photo on his Instagram account to support his sister Kylie's new business venture. The youngest Jenner's makeup line called Kylie's Lip Kit sold out in a matter of minutes, when it was released last month, and it looks like family connections weren't enough to score Rob a shade of Dolce K.  "I guess someone is disappointed they didn't get Kylie's lipkit!!!! Don't worry buddy more coming soon," he wrote under a photo of his adorable bulldog Chapo surfing the brand's website.  I guess someone is disappointed they didn't get Kylie's lipkit!!!!

Kris Jenner Thinks Scott Disick 'Deserves Another Chance'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Scott Disick is like the whack-a-mole of the Kardashian family. Every time you think he's been snuffed out for good for stuffing dollar bills in a waiter's mouth, cheating on Kourtney or rivaling Kim Richards' disastrous attendance record, he resurfaces. Kris Jenner, who recently called Disick one of "true loves of [her] life" (boundaries, Kris, boundaries), thinks that the 32-year-old father of three deserves yet another shot at redemption. "Everybody deserves another chance, and [Kourtney] just wants the best for her and her kids,” Kris revealed on Maria Menounos' Sirius XM show. “So I think it’s just a wait and see what happens to the two of them. So all a mom can do is pray. I do a lot of praying these days.”  When asked if she would welcome a Skourtney (the WORST couple name in the history of time) reunion, she answered, "Of course. He's dad of my grandkids and he'll always be in our lives. He's family, no matter what." Jenner also revealed where the most reclusive K ...
