First of all, let me speak to the elephant in the room. At age 41, I am still young with healthy skin (thanks to a stringent routine of cleansing, toning, treating, moisturizing, and sunscreening since age 14), and quite honestly, I feel better in my skin than I ever have. But there’s no denying the collagen depletion and bone loss that comes with age. Yes, that’s right! Apparently, bone mass peaks around ages 25–30 years and declines gradually thereafter in both men and women. Yay! 

This is why I started having fillers at around age 37 (you can read my previous articles where I wax lyrical about liquid facials and lip fillers). Now that I’m entering my 40s, I wanted to try something that didn’t just fill the depleted areas but actually helped my own body generate its own collagen over time. Enter: thread lifts. I first heard about Read the rest

All LBGTQ+ couples are different, so when it comes to engagement rings and exchanging vows, there are no set rules about the bling that comes with the declaration of love. Some couples gift each other rings upon proposal, while others hand-pick their stones and bands together, ordering them from the same company or boutique, so there’s less of a surprise but lots of room for personalization. A lot of people have partners that don’t like to wear jewelry at all, and that’s cool, too. Just like with all of the other little bridal details, the options are endless.

I’ll never forget when my sister sent me a text message: “How can I figure out Megan’s ring size?” she asked me, after having already ordered her girlfriend a promise ring that ended up barely even fitting over the knuckle of her pinky. At least it wasn’t a diamond! Luckily, they have … Read the rest

Interior design has always been a passion of mine, but it wasn’t until this year—with a lot of time on my hands and a cross-country move in the works—that I became a full-fledged member of the Instagram home décor community. And let me tell you. It’s a wonderful place to be. The social media platform is literally full to the brim of A1 interior inspiration, whether it’s brilliant young artisans sharing snaps of one-of-a-kind pieces they recently produced or interior designers posting scans from decades-old issues of Architectural Digest. It’s truly an endless supply of décor ideas. With that said, when an idea or concept heavily circulates the app, that’s usually an indication that it’s something we’ll see a lot of in the future. With months of stalking home décor accounts under my belt, I definitely have noticed a shift in the types of pieces and styles the design community

When it comes to jewelry, the more sparkle, the better – and that includes adorning teeth. Tooth gems are having a resurgence on TikTok, and many of us know the flashy look is nothing new. In fact, the technique of modifying teeth with jewels dates back to the Mayans and has continued in Hispanic cultures. In the ’80s and ’90s, it was made especially popular within the Black community, thanks in large part to rappers and hip-hop artists wearing gold caps and grills (aka decorative tooth coverings). Now, a whole new generation of stars – including Hailey Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Adwoa Aboah – is discovering the trend.

A disclaimer: Although it’s sometimes called a tooth or dental piercing, nothing is actually pierced when you get a tooth gem. It simply requires attaching a crystal or gem to the tooth’s surface with an adhesive, meaning it’s an easy (and virtually … Read the rest

We’re bracing ourselves for a historic summer of socializing, and nothing says “look at me” quite like a going-out top. First came corset sweaters, then chic knitwear, and now, bandana tops have entered the chat. In case you’re looking to further spruce up your shirt drawer, they are the top choice (no pun intended) as far as post-pandemic party-going outfits are concerned – even if they’re not technically tops.

If it seems like the current state of fashion is one Y2K trend resurgence after another, that’s because it kinda is. From being a wardrobe hero of stars like Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera in the early aughts to becoming a summer 2021 staple for celebs such as Bella Hadid, bandana tops make just as much sense now as they did then. During a time when skin-baring styles are all the rage, trading in your basic tops for bandanas feels like an … Read the rest

The pandemic hasn’t slowed Christian Siriano down. The 35-year-old designer was one of the first to convert his NYC studio into a place for creating masks, where he invited his small team of sewers in to support those on the front lines. He also managed to host two fashion shows – one socially distanced in his own backyard – customize red carpet gowns for virtual award season, work with ThredUp on a universal logo for thrifting, and launch his first bridal collection since 2017.

There are many reasons to watch Cruella, the live-action film starring Emma Stone as the titular character and adapted from Dodie Smith’s novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians and Disney’s 101 Dalmatians franchise. Mainly the glitzy and fabulous costumes.

Set in 1970s London during the punk rock era, the story centers on the backstory of Estella, an orphan and aspiring fashion designer who, with the help of her grifter buddies, Jasper (Joel Fry) and Horace (Paul Walter Hauser), lands a job at the posh department store Liberty London and eventually gets hired by Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson). Sartorial hijinks ensue, including a guerrilla fashion show and a haute couture dress made entirely of moths, in her journey to becoming the full-fledged, dalmatian-wielding villain Cruella de Vil.

POPSUGAR spoke to Cruella costume designer Jenny Beavan, an Oscar and Tony Award winner whose previous credits include A Room With A Read the rest

Brandon Blackwood started his luxury handbag brand out of Brooklyn, NY in 2015. The designer, who’s of Jamaican and Chinese descent, set out to to create a line that is inclusive, functional, affordable, luxurious, sustainable, and bursting with personality. Are there any more boxes you think he needs to check off? Speaking of bags with undeniable character, Brandon explains to me how all of his purses are named after really close friends, family, or townships in Jamaica. “Every bag named after a friend makes sense for that friend. That’s how I keep them close to me. Every bag has a story and speaks to who I am and who I represent,” he says.

Though he’s often compared to Telfar Clemens, who has also created an accessible product line that is for everyone, Brandon can tell you exactly what defines his bag on the market: “On the base level, it’s always … Read the rest
