50+ Women Can't Wear Bikinis? Not Anymore!
Huffington Post - 10 months
There seems to be a popular, largely unspoken belief out there that women over 50 shouldn’t be wearing bikinis, or any other two-piece bathing suits that show the stomach. But recently, there have been several major media moments that debunk this fashion myth, starting with 2016’s groundbreaking issue of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition--the same one that featured plus-size model Ashley Graham as its subject. This issue also contained a gorgeous ad spread by bathing suit company Swimsuits for All featuring the smokin’ hot, then 56-year-old Nicola Griffin. This was no tankini she was photographed in. The very lightly photoshopped images showcased her in a skimpy, gold metallic “itty bitty” bikini. The same one cover model Ashley Graham rocked in the same ad spread! The campaign allowed Nicola’s age to show through, including age spots, wrinkles, and cellulite. And the result was glorious! Women over 50 rocking bikinis has become so common that recently, In Style maga...

Gwyneth Paltrow Urged To Gain Weight For Movie Role, Change Persona After Vanity Fair Feud (REPORT)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Gwyneth Paltrow was allegedly told to land a movie role that would require her to gain weight -- in order to change her public persona during her ongoing feud with Vanity Fair. RadarOnline.com is reporting that Paltrow is under pressure to "do something big and turn the tide of heavily negative publicity" that has befallen her. “It looks like she will have to undergo either some weight gain for a role that wins her Bridget Jones-style sympathy or perhaps do a play on Broadway or in London that will allow her to reconnect with her core fans,” a supposed source told Radar. “She knows there’s a problem, and is focused on fixing it. She’s completely lost the public’s sympathy with her ‘little miss perfect’ image.” Um ... okay? While we aren't so sure the Oscar winner's camp is suggesting anything along those lines, it's certainly possible she's less than thrilled with the publicity surrounding Vanity Fair's supposed "epic takedown" piece. Paltrow's issues with Vanity Fair surf...

Ladies, Let's Be Honest: Flats Are Overrated
Huffington Post - over 4 years
When it comes to picking a sensible shoe, we all know to avoid high heels. Instead, we've come to love the ballet flat, singing its praises for its functionality, comfort and versatility. But we think it's time to get real about something, something we bet many women are thinking every day: Ballet flats are kind of overrated.* 1. They're terrible in the rain. Or snow or mud or other messy sorts of terrain. No matter how well the shoes are made, our feet won't stay dry in ballet flats with even the lightest of rain. 2. They smell. Wearing ballet flats means going sockless, which often means sweaty feet. Plus, when you do get caught in the rain, they inevitably get moist and yucky gross. Smelly feet? Not chic. 3. They're not always comfortable. Ballet flats can pinch and rub your feet as badly as any other shoe if the fit isn't perfect. And how many times have you bought a pair in a size too small, assuming they would stretch... but they didn't? 4. They're not even good for...

Muses Behind Famous Songs
Yahoo News - over 4 years
Have you ever wondered where pop singers get inspiration for their songs? For Miley Cyrus, her ex-fiance, Liam Hemsworth, was likely the inspiration behind her new song "Drive." Cyrus admitted in an interview that the song is about, "...a time when you want to leave but you can't. It's also about moving on.” Another female pop star, Katy Perry, admitted that actress Scarlett Johansson inspired the song, “I Kissed a Girl” – although Perry confessed the two women have never actually kissed. Sometimes a song can have multiple muses. Many people assume the Billy Joel song, “Uptown Girl” was written about Christie Brinkley. But the song began as an ode to model Elle Macpherson, whom Joel was dating in the early 1980s. When Macpherson and Joel split, he refocused the song on Brinkley. English model Pattie Boyd did Macpherson and Brinkley one better by serving as the muse for two different musicians. While married to George Harrison, Boyd inspired the song, “Something.” And when she later be...
