Sheen Jan/Feb 2017

JESSICA “JYPSY” WHITE, illustriously beautiful cover girl reveals the meaning behind her new name, feminism verses femininity, and how to be a boss in any industry.

Just in time for the New Year, SHEEN MAGAZINE, the Ultimate Beauty Guide, kicks off its most spectacular homage to beauty yet; in radiant hues of every color–“The Power of Beauty.” The January/ February issue, brings readers inside the glitz and glam of some of the hottest hair, fashion, and beauty trends on the market, all the while featuring the top celebrities and innovators who continue to slay the beauty industry!

In the glossy issue, gorgeous ‘wanderer’ Jessica “Jypsy” White reveals what’s in a name, as she discusses the spiritual reference to her new name, recognizing good energy, domination, submission—and simply put, letting a man be a man.

“I’m only a feminist from my want for a man to be a man. I want to be submissive to a man that has a mission. I’m not trying to do a man’s job…I believe if you want to be the man of the house, be that. I just know I won’t be the woman sitting at home. I want to come to set, do what I have to do, then come home, cook, put the kids down and get my ass back on the red carpet.”

Lethal Weapon actress, Keesha Sharp, shares her coveted secrets to her signature red lip–perfect for Valentine’s Day, all while dishing on her latest project. Hair maven and Cutting it in the ATL starlet, Debra Allen, gives readers advice on preserving natural curls, coloring, and moisture retention for a dry scalp this Winter season.

Down to the perfect Valentine’s getaway, to planning the ultimate Beauty Bowl party with your girl’s this winter.

handcrafted jewelry with fitness in mind from Fitjewels

img_6265

It all started with a Fitbit exercise tracker. I wore my tracker every day until one evening as I was getting dressed to go out, I realized the Fitbit tracker just didn’t fit in with dressy clothes. That’s when fitjewels  came to my rescue. I acquired my first piece of jewelry, designed to dress up the Fitbit tracker, which was a beautiful pendant; http://itsaglamthing.com/2015/12/15/show-off-your-exercise-tracker-in-pure-elegance-with-jewelry-from-fitjewel/

The pendant worked beautifully, but sometimes even a beautiful pendant just doesn’t fit in with certain wardrobe choices. Again,  fitjewels came to my rescue with their beautiful line of bracelets that accommodate my Fitbit and my new Fitbit Alta.

As you can see from the photo above, the FITBIT FLEX Jewelry Bracelet Soma, looks simply elegant on the wrist and goes with any type of outfit. A Fitbit tracker fits nicely inside the cage and looks more like an onyx piece than an exercise tracker. This particular bracelet is made of Stainless Steel and leather and the indicator lamps are always visible which is a nice feature.

Most pieces of jewelry in the fitjewel line are available in gold, silver and rose gold. Two sizes are also available;  S-M (5.5-6.5) M-L (6.5-7.5) and L-XL (7.5-9) inches (circumference of your wrist).  The bracelets look extremely elegant on your wrist you can’t tell you are hiding your exercise tracker.

    • img_6269

With my recent upgrade from a Fitbit Flex to a Fitbit Alta, I needed another bracelet to wear when I wanted wear something besides the plastic strap. This particular piece (shown above) accommodates my Fitbit Alta, fitjewels FITBIT ALTA Jewelry Bracelet Noe. The Fitbit Alta attaches to the bands by connecting the sides to the jewelry. With a simple press of a small lever, the Fitbit Alta unhinges from the band and you can replace it with any fitjewel  bracelet designed for the Fitbit Alta quite easily.

They are also available in two sizes;  S-M (5.5-6.5) M-L (6.5-7.5) and L-XL (7.5-9) inches (circumference of your wrist) This bracelet is also made from quality stainless steel. The Noe is available in Gold and Silver and it is simply beautiful. Mine fits snugly on my wrist and I don’t even know it is there. It is quite a conversational piece because most people don’t realize it’s hiding an activity tracker so they won’t see this jewelry in a jewelry store. Each piece is very unique.

At the website www.fitjewels.com you can find the perfect gift for any occasion including the holidays. There are pendants, bracelets, necklaces, chains and jewelry for fitness activity trackers like Fitbit Flex , Fitbit One, Fitbit Alta, Fitbit Charge 2, Misfit Ray or Jawbone Up Move.

Hipstiks are a whole new level of comfort

slide3-body

Do you think pantyhose are uncomfortable? Well, I do too, that’s why I switched to Hipstik Legwear. Hipstiks are opaque tights and come in Magnetic Black, Heavenly Navy, and Sumptuous Brown. Unlike normal pantyhose, these tights take comfort into consideration and are like no other pantyhose I have ever worn. The top of the tights have grips so that they won’t slide down and slip off. The top of these tights are also wider and laced, able to hug your waist and not squeeze like the normal tights I’ve always worn. These are the best alternate pair of tights. Still looking fabulous in every outfit and leaving you more comfortable than ever, especially during this hectic holiday season.

Unlike regular pantyhose in which size is determined by height and weight, Hipstik Legwear takes body shape into consideration. Weather your shape is Triangle, Rectangle, V-Shaped, O-Shaped or Hourglass, Hipstiks has a size based on your shape and height.

You can find the perfect size for your shape at www.hipstiks.com

New Year, New You: The Glamorous Emotional Makeover!

dsc_3185_r

A new year is upon us, and with it comes an inner desire for change. Whether its setting goals for a new job or simply just wanting to change-up a minor thing or two in your life / cut a bad habit, resolutions are happening all around us currently!

One change that has become a trending item in today’s society is the subject of being a better person. Now while some people change their hair color or try out a whole new look, hoping it gives them a new sense of confidence or change, those things may only work in the short term. That is why there is now something called The Emotional Makeover, which are sessions that help guide you on a spiritual healing cleanse and help you see your inner beauty, so that you can change your day-to-day attitude in the real world.

The founder and creator of The Emotional Makeover, Tony Uberoi, spoke exclusively to It’s A Glam Thing about his sessions and how Hollywood stars are coming to him to make 2017 the best year ever! Oh, and Tony is also psychic with over 30 years experience in predicting correct things, so we obviously asked him about what 2017 will be bringing our way!

img_1751

Nick Northstar: The word “Glamorous” can mean many different things……What is it’s
definition to you?

Tony Uberoi: When I see the word “Glamorous” I drop the first two letters. Glamorous is “Amorous” to me. Something personal, snug and lovable.

NN: With your Emotional Makeover sessions people can learn to feel “Glamorous” internally correct? How do you help them see their inner beauty?

TU: Glamorous is Amorous. Lovable. A large percentage of the clients I serve are secretly suppressing something painful, shameful causing hurt and pain.Sadly this pain makes them wrongly doubt that they are deserving of receiving love. After an Emotional Makeover session has released their pain, my clients reconnect with their true inner power. This transforms their perception of themselves. Clients now feel lovable, amorous…Glamorous. Clients are able to see themselves with clear lenses. They see their own beauty again. Beauty lies in their own eyes.

NN: You have worked with a lot of Hollywood stars….What emotion do they usually feel prior to coming to see someone like you?

TU: Stars are special. They work hard, travel and are constantly in the public eye. It has been stated….A favourite most time has no friends they can trust with their feelings. Once these sensitive stars feel they can trust me, they are simple, friendly and very humane. Usually feelings of loneliness and a feeling that they are not understood hurts the stars emotionally when they arrive to see me.

NN: What is your advice to anyone wanting to make a change in their lifestyle.

TU: Change is inevitable. Why not make a change in lifestyle fashionable, yet fun. My advice is: Be guided by your true inner self to bring yourself more harmony and balance. Mantra…Flow with your feelings.

NN: With the holidays here, do you find a lot of people come to you after feeling down over holiday shopping money issues?

TU: The obvious money issues are with people who go overboard and over spend. Strangely the reverse is also true. People who had the money but were unable to shop due to various reasons. Lack of time, nursing a sick family member or travel are to mention a few. Yes, the holiday blues bring all sorts of people for the Emotional Makeover. The important thing to learn is that happiness should come from a feeling of enjoyment and festivity, not the feeling that a good deal or exchange of gifts are the key to happiness.

NN: As you are also a psychic….What do you see coming up, prediction wise for the New Year?

TU: 2017 begins a new 6 year beautiful astrological cycle of growth and change. We will have to begin and be the change! The more mature will have to learn the lesson of readjusting to the even more fast pace of changes. The younger folks will have to be creative with change and also help the older folk to readjust. The magic word will have to be BLEND!
