Cool Blue Leather

All I need is one bag. I'm definitely one of those women who will wear one purse day after day after day. You'll see me with it in the morning while I'm getting coffee. I'll take it to meetings and auditions. You'll even see me throw it over my shoulder to go meet friends for cocktails. It's not until I look at photos later and realize that maybe I should've switched to something more appropriate for the evening. I'm sure this happens to you too. Especially if you're a Girl on the Go, the thought of changing out handbags throughout your busy day just sounds exhausting. It's not even logical. Seriously, you'd have to pack your extra purses in your car or take them to work, then you'd look like a crazy baaaag laaaady (in my Erykah Badu voice).


Beauty Blast: Lift Lab Eye Cream

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

The struggle to defeat the bags under my eyes is real. They are literally the excess baggage weighing down my freckled face. And it's not just underneath, the puffiness is invading above too. The other morning I woke up with eyes so swollen you'd swear I had been in the boxing ring the night before. It's sad, I tell you. While I swear by cucumbers and putting an ice pack on to decrease the puff, those things aren't always readily available. I come to this realization every time I travel, especially my last trip to New York. Who in her right mind is going to pack a cucumber in her carry-on? TSA would probably not be too happy with me. Anyway, I think I may have found a solution with this eye cream from the geniuses at Lift Lab.


Dear Fairy Model Mother: Is My Height Holding Me Back?

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Hello lovelies! It's your Fairy Model Mother here. Long time no see. Don't take it personally. It's purely my fault that I've been M.I.A. But I'm back with some much needed advice. Today's question comes from Ticia, a 20-something Brooklyn girl who's concerned about being vertically challenged. Here's what she has to say:
"I am deeply interested in becoming a "commercial" model (mostly due to height, I'm 5'8"). Do you have any advice on how to get started and how to find the right agency in New York City? It seems that all the agencies I've come across have a height requirement I don't fit into - should I try my luck anyway? I don't mind having doors slammed in my face in the pursuit of something I really want, I just want to make sure I am going in the right direction."


Denim & Curves

Monday, October 6, 2014

Ladies and Gentleman. Boys and girls. I'd like you to meet my hips and thighs. A while ago I didn't know they existed but now... hello! Tell me if this has ever happened to you. A few months back I noticed my old jeans were getting a little tighter. I tried to shimmy my way into them. I'd lie on my bed, take a deep breath, and slowly zip them. But once I stood back upright, I knew that these suckers weren't going to be the most comfortable thing to wear all day. I know this isn't something you normally hear from a model chick, but I'm all about keeping it real. My super-skinny low rise jeans were giving me a muffin top. Me! I knew I'd gained a little weight... not enough to make my lady cushioning billow over my pants. Unless, the problem wasn't me. It's the jeans.
