Neon, neon, neon! It seems as though everyone, including myself, has been effected by this epidemic! Neon clothing, accessories, and shoes which have previously been associated with the 80s (a whole other epidemic) has been given a chic makeover. Here’s a few pointers on how to rock the neon without looking like a human hilighter.
1. Neon looks great with neutral colors. White, beige, tan, brown – neon is like their hot date that livens up the night but doesn’t overdo it. Pair a bright top with white pants or vice versa like in this picture.s
2. Create a pop of neon in your outfits by adding neon accessories to a regular outfit. Shoes, handbags, clutches, nailpolish, jewelry, what have you – the small splashes of neon will add some flare to your everyday wardrobe.
3. If you’re going to strut down the street completely dressed in the trend, make sure to use your colorblock. It’s perfectly fine to rock more than one shade of neon; but if you do, do so in solids and make sure they are completely different colors. Try pairing a neon blazer with a different-colored neon top and white pants. You get the idea right? Too much of one thing can be just too much… unless you do it right!

From zero to hero, Bethenny Frankelhas slowly been working her way into society’s limelight. Starring on the “Real Housewives of New York” launched her career to new heights. Since the show, she has managed to make a name for herself not only as a TV/film star but as an author, entrepreneur, and most recently TV talk show host.
Initially being a hater, I can understand where all of the criticism comes from; but this woman has truly become my idol. She has risen to the top of the food chain by simply being who she is. Her passion, honesty, and general kick-ass attitude are traits that we can all aspire to have.
Her two most noticeable accomplishments right now are the launch of Skinnygirl Cocktails (see my previous post for more info on this delicious brand of alcohol heaven) and her new daytime TV talk show, “Bethenny”. You can check out what it’s all about here at http://www.bethennytv.com/.

Skinnygirlnow offers three different lines of drinks: Vodka with Natural Flavors, Ready to Serve Cocktails, and the Wine Collection.
Vodka has always been a favorite even when its naked, but when it’s spiced up with fun flavors like tangerine or coconut it’s hard to resist!
“If you like piña coladas…” (I hope you just read that to the tune of Jimmy Buffet) then the Skinnygirl ready-to-serve options are great for you! From sangria to margaritas, they’ve got you covered with delicious cocktails. Why waste time slaving over a cold cocktail shaker when you could be putting that time to much better use drinking!?
“It doesn’t matter if the glass if half empty or half full. There is clearly room for more wine.” With its own red and white blends and the next generation of rosé, you can go to a wine-tasting event in your own kitchen!

Eyelashes can make the eye look old and tired if untouched, but put some mascara and eyeliner on and BOOM! Your eyes are given a new life. Lash extensions take the power of maintained eyelashes to the next level by improving the length, thickness, and fullness of your eyelashes.
There are 3 variations of extensions:
1. False lashes (temporary)
Applied directly to the eyelid
Not to be worn in the shower, overnight, or while swimming
Meant to be used for a single day or a couple of hour
Cost starts at about $3 at a typical drugstore and can go up in price depending on the material of the lash (but why spend $50 on lashes you’ll wear for less than a day!?)
2. Eyelash extensions (semi-permanent)
Does not come in contact with the eyelid
One lash extension is applied to the tip of each individual eyelash
Can sustain showering, swimming, and overnight wear
Meant to last until the natural eyelash falls out – can last for weeks or months
Process takes 1-2 hours and is to be done by cosmetologist or aesthetician
Can cost anywhere between $100 and $500
3. Medically enhanced process
Allows natural lashes to lengthen and thicken on their own
Costs about $125 for a month-long supply of the drug
No matter the color, size, or shape of your eyes they always seem to look better with a touch of mascara and eyeliner – am I right? That’s because eye makeup is meant to attract attention to our eyes and make them more dramatic. Extensions achieve that more naturally bold look, and when extensions and makeup go out on a date together they are unstoppable. Visit the eyelash extension specialists at ebenezer.
