Lauren B Beauty Nail Couture introduces 8 NEW Fall Colors that are Perfect for Back to School

unnamed-2

Inspired by Los Angeles, each shade offers a compelling departure from the standard. For fall, her discerning eye landed on a range of influences, which she’s recast in sexy jewel tones and rich earthy shades. A sunset viewed from the Griffith Park observatory reappears as a pink-rose-khaki polish. An iridescent, shell-white tone nods to Shutters on the Beach, Lauren’s favorite local hotel and spa. A deep iris purple plays off the energy of gardens in Hancock Park. And a shimmery violet pink repeats the shade of a treasure scored at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Bonus: Each polish is supremely eco-centric, fast-drying, and as glossy and long-wearing as a salon gel manicure!

Price: 18.00

DIY on the Fly with Julee on Studio 10 Live

Julee Ireland of It’s a Glam Thing and author of the book series ” DIY on the FLY under $25″ presents these steps to create DIY Flower Nursery Wall Art.

Segment coming soon.

DIY otf

Step ONE: Lay your Monogram Wood letter on a flat, clean surface. Optional: Paint or spray paint your Monogram letter the background color you like. It also looks beautiful to keep the natural wood color.

Step TWO: Take your artificial flower sprays and cut the flowers where they meet the stem. You can also use craft paper flowers, fabric flowers or other prepackaged flowers from your local craft store.

Step THREE: Arrange your cut flowers on your Monogram letter. Start with your larger flowers first and then use smaller flowers to fill in the gaps. When you have the basic placement of your flowers designed use your glue gun to glue your flowers in place.

Step FOUR: Cut two pieces of ribbon your desired length and tie a bow in the middle.

Step FIVE: Turn your completed Monogram letter over. Use your hot glue gun to glue each side of your ribbon down to create your hanger for your Monogram letter. Now all you need is a nail to place in the wall where you want to hang your beautiful Monogram Flower Nursery.

Coconut to Go!

Tube-trio-Retouched

By Lisa Gal

I love coconut oil. It has so many uses, smells so great and is actually good for you! The bummer I find (usually) is that it comes in a jar. Not very convenient or very easy to get out for personal use (especially once it is warmer than room temperature). My problems are now solved, Coco Luxe in a tube for all my personal care needs! This 100% organic unrefined extra virgin coconut oil can help with hair growth, ease sunburns, freshen breath, rid diaper rash, moisturize lips, remove make-up, easier shaving, great facial wash, acne treatment and all over moisturizer to name just a few. Keep the jar in the kitchen and take the tube with you everywhere you go! The 2015 Emmy nominees staying at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills will be gifted the 3.4 oz Coco Luxe tube in their Hollywood Swag Bags, we know they are going to love it.

Buy for the Global Good

ThEbracelet

By Lisa Gal

How many times have you traveled to another country and thought, wow, these local artisans are so talented! I always feel good helping the women (and even children) in their little communities and villages by buying locally from them. I’ve traveled all over and brought back gifts and souvenirs from many countries, but there have been times when I wished I would have brought back more.  Global Goods Partners has taken it one step further by bringing the goods to you in the states from over 20 different countries. ThE bracelet is one of the products founders Catherine Lieber Shimony and Joan Shifrin import.  The purchase of 16 Bracelets = 1 year of education for rural Guatemalan girls with the resources they need to fulfill their dream of an education. Now the 2015 Emmy Nominees and guests of the Four Seasons Hotel can be part of the sustainable change by sporting their bracelets gifted to them in their Hollywood Swag Bags this award season. Educate. Empower. Change a life and shop now.

TALKING STYLE & GLAM WITH TRAINWRECK’S EVAN BRINKMAN

11698847_841327045949780_8685626253875808235_n

He may be young, but Hollywood child star Evan Brinkman sure knows how to steal a scene and he proved that in the recent hit Judd Apatow comedy Trainwreck. In the film, Evan played the dorky, sweet, and sensitive stepson Allister who annoys Amy Schumer’s character throughout. In real-life he is anything but annoying.

It’s A Glam Thing had a chance to chat with Evan and find out a bit more about his style away from his character in the film and how he puts together his incredible fashion choices for red carpets and interviews…

How would you describe your own personal day-to-day style?

I would say that I dress nice casual day-to-day. I usually wear a minimum of two different outfits a day. The first outfit is for school and it is usually cargo shorts with a polo shirt or v-neck shirt. Once I’m home from school I change into a t-shirt and shorts. On the days that I go golfing I wear Under Armor golf apparel.

What trends/brands do you like currently?

I prefer The Gap and Old Navy for my school clothing. Nike for my after school clothing and Under Armour for golf. For my shoes I prefer Converse, Vans and Under Armour. For dressier clothes I always go to J. Crew.

Being so young, do you even like dressing up for red carpets and such?

Yes, I really liked the clothing I wore for the red carpet and multiple interviews for Trainwreck. I had several business casual suits and shoes from J Crew. My mom used the Very Personal Stylist from J Crew and she would send multiple outfit choices for me and my mom to choose from on-line. For the red carpet I went to Nordstrom’s and found the suit, shirt, bow-tie and shoes. The suit was altered by Nordstrom’s and it was very convenient for us to find everything there.

What was it like getting styled each day on the set of Trainwreck? Did you have a whole team dressing you? Did you have any say?

The wardrobe department had requested all my sizes before my first fitting. When I arrived on set there were so many choices for my outfits that were unique, quirky and fun. There were 3 stylists that helped me throughout the filming and I remember wearing a lot of J Crew clothing. I did wear my own Converse, Chuck Taylor’s, the very first day for my fitting and the stylists loved my shoes. I ended up getting 3 pairs in different colors for my wardrobe changes on the set.

What is your definition of “Glam”?
