by Lisa Gal

You’re at your best friends wedding (insert your activity, here… work party, night out, shopping, dinner, etc. you get the idea) and you’re in your favorite heels that match that perfect dress and you think for a minute…are my feet going to be killing me by the end of the night? You shrug and put those torture spikes on anyway. Then midnight rolls around and your dogs are barking! This is when you do the unthinkable and take your shoes off so you can dance the night away on that dirty dance floor. If you were in your right mind (ie. not in severe pain), you would never do such a thing. Let Talaria Flats keep your feet a shade (or 5) lighter with their handy folding ballerinas, no clean-up required. Your feet will purr all the way home.

When you love the color but not the stain, Nakeah has the answer


My daughter Adrienne is loving her new liquid lipstick from Nakeah Cosmetics of Hollywood. The color has a matte finish and stays on throughout the day. She is wearing “Vamp”  (shown below) this particular evening and wears lighter shades for work and daytime. Nakeah Cosmetics of Hollywood offers 11 gorgeous vibrant shades. Adrienne told me that many matte lipsticks tend to dry out your lips after a while but Nakeah Liquid Lipsticks do not, her lips stay soft and smooth. The color glides on easily and looks amazing.


The downside to many matte lipsticks and lip stains is that they can be very hard to remove. Nakeah Cosmetics of Hollywood has created a liquid lipstick remover, Indelible Makeup Remover. With Indelible Makeup Remover, Lipsticks are easily removed while conditioning your lips at the same time. The makeup remover works well with all makeup especially lips and eyes. Another nice feature is that  Indelible Makeup Remover is blended with all natural anti-oxidants, jojoba, and olive oil, leaving your skin soft, smooth and glowing.


Colors shown from Left to Right are Adrienne’s favorite Vamp, Grand Canyon (perfect for fall) and my favorite, A-List 

Nakeah Cosmetics of Hollywood not only carries lipsticks, but has an array of cosmetics and accessories.  Nakeah Cosmetics ha created a line of  “All Natural, Paraben-free Line of Cosmetics & Skin Care Created for Every Ethnicity & Every Culture…” as stated by Nakeah Cosmetics of Hollywood. You will find the complete line of cosmetics at

New York Salon Care in your Home


by Lisa Gal

Did you know if you color your hair you should only be washing it about 2 times a week with a color preserving shampoo? Well, if I’m going to cut back the washing that much I am going to need a lot more cans of Nexxus Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist! Not only does my hair smell so fresh and clean afterwards, but it soaks up the shine while preserving my style. Nexxus Dry Shampoo helps reduce fade too while reinvigorating my hair. To apply, simply shake the can and spray on the roots. Rub the shampoo into your hair and brush out for refreshed hair.

Pick Workout Clothes that work for you

I often get asked the question, “How do I get the right workout clothes for me?” So I came up with a quick little guide that will help anyone who is purchasing new workout gear. When trying on workout clothes is it always very important to get your true size (not a small when you truly wear a medium) no one will see your size it is sewn on the inside. If you get a size to small or even too big you will regret it.
Here are a few tips that you should do when you are in the dressing room. Make sure you get the big dressing room because you are going to be doing some big moves.

1.  Stand with your feet hip width apart and raise your hands above your head, reach for the ceiling, really stretch, come up on your tippy toes so that you can reach your full stance.  You are doing this so that you ensure your top is not riding up and that your workout pants are not slipping down.

2.  Keep your left arm above your head, drop the other arm to your side and do a side bend to the right, keeping both feet firmly on the floor, do a nice full stretch. You want to make sure your top does not rise too much but if you don’t mind some skin showing you can choose what your comfort level is. Repeat on the other side.
3.  Bring both hands down and touch your toes.  You want to make sure your workout pants are not creeping down those hips.

4.  Stand tall and raise one knee to your chest, grab with both hands and pull in close to your body, make sure you have the flexibility and ability to move your leg easily, repeat with the other leg.

5.  Squat down and place your elbows on your knees with your hands together like you are praying. Again, make sure that the pants are not creeping down, we don’t want any plumbers crack in the gym. If you follow these simple tips, you will find the perfect workout clothes for you.

Top Hollywood Couples- Divorces among Hollywood Celebrities


The stories of famous couples splitting up often flood the media and divorces continue to be a common occurrence in Hollywood. Different couples end their marriages for different reasons. Anytime a relationship comes to an abrupt end, the situation is sensitive regardless of how well known the individuals are.

In the midst of conflict, blaming each other and grieving the demise of the marriage, divorcing couples have to interact constantly as they negotiate the terms of their divorce. Divorce has an extensive effect on the couple, their children, relatives and fans around the world.

Hollywood Divorces- Empathy and Entertainment

When the media provides news about famous divorcing couples, people everywhere monitor the situation closely. Attention-grabbing headlines such as ‘Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise call it quits’ are bound to elicit reactions, especially when people have been watching a celebrity romance unfold. Most celebrities are used to the fact that they will no longer enjoy privacy.

A high-profile divorce gives fans and critics the chance to share the opinions about the relationship and why it may be ending. While marriage may essentially be between two individuals, ongoing media coverage of a celebrity union ensures that other people are able to get access to their private issues. Hollywood divorces continue to be popular topics that are regarded as entertaining.

Public Scrutiny

The exposure of celebrity couples typically begins through both intentional and unintentional public displays of affection that are captured by the media. The intricacies of the relationship are shared widely and when the couple starts a family, members of the public feel like they are involved.

When the couple starts experiencing relationship problems, issues such as infidelity, drugs and egos arise. The pair eventually breaks up and the public anxiously waits to see if they will move on to new relationships or possibly reconcile. Visit for more.

Top Hollywood Divorces

Various top Hollywood couples have gotten divorced over the years and these include:

  • Mel and Robyn Gibson
  • Michael and Juanita Jordan
  • Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving
  • Kenny and Marianne Rogers
  • Michael and Diandra Douglas
  • Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
  • Donald and Ivana Trump
  • Kevin Costner and Cindy Silva
  • Madonna and Guy Ritchie
  • Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.

It is virtually impossible to keep up with numerous Hollywood divorces and there are various reasons why celebrities end up divorcing. These include jealousy, incompatible schedules and financial challenges.


Hollywood celebrities are likely to find themselves in situations that create insecurity and jealousy in their marriages. They also face a lot of tempting situations that occur both on and off camera. The media also plays a significant role in transforming harmless situations such as a hug between co-actors at a party into an intimate affair.

Time Apart

A Hollywood career usually involves a lot of travelling and spending time away from spouses and families. A marriage can become problematic if the spouses are constantly apart or consumed by the vibrant Hollywood lifestyle.

Battle of Egos

For most Hollywood celebrities, the attention from fans and media is quite an ego boost. A famous individual may begin to feel like he or she is extremely important and take their partner for granted. This is a common challenge among so-called new celebrities who are yet to get used to a life of fame and wealth.

Slather Yourself with Nubian Heritage’s Patchouli & Buriti Souffle


There is nothing fun about recovering from knee surgery. Well, I can think of one thing that helps, the amazing gifts I have received from some very thoughtful family and friends. Before I slather myself with Nubian Heritage’s Patchouli & Buriti Souffle, I would like to tell you a little more about this amazing fragrant collection. I could smell the sweet aroma as soon as I opened the box.

I am loving Patchouli & Buriti Souffle and the Cleansing Soap Bar is equally enjoyable. The soap has a unique blend of Buriti Oil, moisturizing Shea Butter and Rose Hip Seed Oil blended providing a fragrant, soothing and hydrating bathing experience. I rubbed the soap bar into a loofah sponge and worked the soap into a rich lather which was quite enjoyable. I can only describe the scent as a vanilla cake batter with a pinch of chocolate. That is my take on it, but if you like sweet scents you will love this collection.

Nubian Heritage’s Patchouli & Buriti Souffle is formulated for all skin types including sensitive skin. As stated by Nubian Heritage, their “products are cruelty-free and without sulfates, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, DEA, artificial fragrance or synthetic coloring. The secret to Nubian Heritage is that they use proven traditional healing practices, cultural influence and indigenous ingredients including various oils, ash and more to create a solution for every beauty and skin type.”

I have used the souffle every day since receiving it and not only am I getting compliments on the scent, my daughter actually smelled the sweet aroma when she walked in the room. It’s the perfect remedy for dry skin, chapped hands or anywhere you need moisturizing.

You will find the Nubian Heritage collections at Ulta; with products like cleansers, body washes, hand creams and skincare containing 100% Organic Shae butter. Nubian Heritage also has specific skincare designed for dry, problematic and sensitive skin.

Try Nubian Heritage’s  Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream containing organic shea butter for dry or chapped hands;  The Nubian Heritage’s Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Body Cleansing Smoothie gives your whole body a blend of ultra-moisturizing Shea Oil & soothing Neem to enhance your skin’s appearance. Nubian Heritage’s Abyssinian & Chia Seed Collection is both vitamin rich and contains anti-aging properties that will leave your skin with a youthful glow.
