Rock that Holiday Look

Think costume theatrical. The classic theme for the holidays is festive, so it’s a great time to dress up and celebrate. Be daring, and have fun with colors and makeup.

Choose sparkling, bright sequin dresses in reds, pinks, silvers, greens and blues. I found a great pink sequin dress that I only paid $10 for at a discount store. I kept it in my closet just so I could wear it during the holiday season.


If you are more conservative, classic black always provides a classic, subtle and polished look.

Either way, the key to rocking any dress is making sure it fits properly. It should be tight enough to show off your assets — yet not so tight as to pull or make you look like a stuffed sausage.

Your makeup should be complimentary, with a strong emphasis on the eyes, especially for an evening event. Always apply eyeliner and mascara; you can even add some shimmer or sparkles.

Just remember to blend and keep both sides symmetrical. Play around with your lips. I always choose a darker color with a light color over the lips, especially if you opt for a dramatic look on the eyes.

Above all, have fun! And happy holidays!

4 of the Most Desirable Features in 2016 Smartphones


It is amazing how far smartphones have evolved in such a short amount of time. The giant shoebox-sized cellphones that could only make calls have morphed into technological wonders that are slim, sleek and seemingly able to do anything.

While being able to access the internet and email your boss from the local coffee shop is old news, there are some bells and whistles that will still wow you. With that in mind, check out the following most desirable features in this year’s smartphones:

Edge Displays

Samsung’s Galaxy line has branched off to offer the Galaxy S6 Edge and S7 Edge. As its name implies, the display continues onto the edge of the phone and provides information and notifications on the side, which is handy when the phone is lying face down on a table or is partly visible from inside your purse. The edge glows when you are getting an incoming call, and you can even assign a specific color to contacts you add to the People edge. The edge also displays a clock and can alert you if you miss a call, text or email from one of your fave five people.

4K Technology

If you love taking videos of your everyday adventures, look for a smartphone that has 4K technology. Your footage of your pets, kids, travels and fashion events will look like it was produced by someone in Hollywood. The iPhone 6s Plus is renowned for its 4K technology that helps you take crystal clear photos and videos. Plus, since it’s so small, you can take it with you anywhere.

Virtual Technology

The mere thought of turning your smartphone into a virtual reality (VR) experience is mind blowing. If your phone is VR-compatible, you can purchase a VR headset and download apps that allow you to virtually explore the world with your friends, play games and more. The good news is that the VR headsets work with a long list of available smartphones, including iPhone and Android phones. You don’t necessarily have to upgrade to the latest model to virtually visit Europe with your BFF, all from the comfort of your living room. Freefly VR has a comprehensive list of phones that work with VR technology.

Fingerprint Readers

Some of the newer smartphones are now equipped with fingerprint readers that you can use to access your phone, authorize a credit card payment and do other tasks. It goes without saying that you want this technology to be bug free. The Apple iPhone 6 and its Apple Touch ID is as reliable as it is easy to use. The Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X also have impressive fingerprint sensors. By simply swiping your finger, you can avoid the hassle of remembering passwords, log into secure websites and have the peace of mind that anyone who picks up your phone won’t be able to access your personal data.
