Gwyneth Paltrow’s Workout

Gwyneth Paltrow has one of the best bodies in Hollywood, especially for her age. I need to take a lesson from her book. She revolves her workouts around yoga and pilates, working out for 90 minutes at least 6 days a week. She starts yoga at 4:30 every morning. She said she is not a morning person at all; that is is al determination. Then she does strength training and cardio. 

It makes me feel a little better to know that they work for it too 🙂

Looks to Keep for 2012

Sometimes it feels like trends change so fast and you are left with a closet full of styles that you can’t wear anymore. Worst feeling ever! I usually invest in classics because of this, but sometimes it is just so fun to buy new trends and styles! Finding a way to wear these trends into the next season can be a challenge, but that’s what makes fashion great! According to People StyleWatch Magazine, here are some of the trends that are continuing on from last year/season into 2012. So get excited to remix your wardrobe, find new outfit pairings, or shop for an updated version! My closet thanks you! 

Chunky Wedges

Rachel Bilson wears a closed-toed version and Vanessa Hudgens wears a sandal version of this look!

Girlie Dresses

Alexa Chung wears a cute style and Taylor Swift is the queen of girlie dresses! Perfect for spring and summer!

Navajo-Inspired Prints

I love this style! Nicky Hilton rocks a Tory Burch top in this global print.

Nautical Nails!

Hello Everyone! Nautical is so fun and cute to wear, but what about for your nails? I found this cute manicure on Lucky Magazine’s Beauty Page and decided to pass it along to everyone else! This looks tough, but it’s actually really easy, because we get to cheat a little bit. Read the instructions below and have fun with your summer nails!

1. Paint the base navy blue. We used American Apparel’s “Passport Blue” polish $6

2. Next, apply the white strips from the Sally Hansen’s French Manicure Kit $6.50

3. Using small scissors or cuticle nippers, clip the strips as close to the edge of your nail as possible.

4. Use a thin paint brush to create hearts on the nail wherever you want. Here we used Essie’s “Geranium” $7.50 to make ours.

‘Band’ Together

I am a huge fan of headbands, not only because of Blair Waldorf, but because I’m secretly just really lazy and it makes doing your hair in the morning SO much easier! 

Thin headbands are becoming more and more in trend and they work for everyone! I love that they can be casual or dressy as well!

Cropped Hair/Pixie – You can “fake” an updo with a headband by teasing your hair and pushing the front back with the band.

Evan Rachel Wood

Short Hair/Bob – Twist hair back and secure with band. Curling makes the short pieces that come out of the hair-do look more placed as well.

Charlize Theron

Medium Length – Pull into a low or high bun and push up for a bump for height.

Kerry Washington (she has a little bump going on)

Long Hair – The thin band creates definition in the middle of the mass of hair you have going on up on your hair. See below on these three celebrities. 

Sandra Bullock, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Gwyneth Paltrow

One celebrity that can be seen wearing the thin band over and over is Kristen Bell. Seen here she has a sleek updo, a cool ponytail, and even a wears it with her hair down. Love her!
