10 Reasons Why Short Women Rule the World…

According to the fashion industry Petite is defined as 5′5″ inches tall and under. In the United States petite women represent 70% of the female population. We can't always reach the tops of shelves. Sometimes our feet swing on the toilet. We need a step stool to make out with you standing up...but us vertically challenged chicks are the majority (and kick-ass for more than 10 reasons, but these are my faves)...

Head to Toe Talbot-abulous…

Rest assured, you are in good hands. With espresso shot ingested, I have put together a to-die-for, must-have look for fall. You will be the envy of women, men will pull an exorcist 360 (what man doesn't when he sees a woman in leather?) and you will be confident and cool in your classy chic gear. The good news - you don't have to go very far or spend a ton of money. Talbots has it all and it is just a click away from being yours.

If You Don’t Care a Feather or a Fig, You May Grow up to be A Pig (or a Frog)…

It is time for me to finally come forward and confess to my dedicated Bellers that I, Kara, do not always wash my hair. Now I know some of you out there (don't hide!) follow this little hair ritual too. Honestly, it's such an important hair trick and there are a lot of great perks to skipping a few shampoos. Your hair stays nourished, becomes a bit more manageable, and your freshly dyed locks stay vibrant for that much longer. Not to mention you get your money's worth out of any blowouts!

An Aromatic “Thyme-Out”…

When having company over there are many things I make sure to do just before arrival. My apartment is spotless, organized, and clean. Ambient music is playing, delicious food is cooking and photos of loved ones on display. I want my place to be appealing to all 5 senses. However, it recently dawned on me that I didn't just wanted it to generically smell nice...I wanted it to smell recognizable. My guests needed to walk in and be captivated by my home’s signature scent! That is how I discovered Mandarin Coriander by Thymes.

#NYFW My Beauty Survival Kit

With Fashion Week in full swing, I have been flooded with how I am surviving (it is Saturday night at 11:48 pm - does that answer your question - I am working!). But thankfully, my beauty stash is helping to keep me bright eyed and bushy tailed, as I live the life of a crazy little lifestyle blogger - during New York Fashion Week. I present you with with a peek into my fashion week beauty arsenal:

Backstage: The Three Musketeers #HVSF

If you read my last post, you are well aware how much I enjoyed the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival's production of *The Three Musketeers. Lucky me - the fun didn't end at curtain call. I got a chance to sneak behind the scenes and get some quality time backstage with three of the show's top stars. All I can say is this...though they are all superior in their field of work, these three thespians are also among the most humble, intelligent, kind and generous people I have come across in quite some time. What a tough job I have - it is complete torture to conduct these interviews... #lovethem
