In the last post I asked you to forget what you look like and just focus on the things you love.  Today I’m going to ask you to focus on what you look like, but this will not be your typical “How to dress for your body type” post.  I am not going to tell you to classify yourself as a fruit (pear, apple, etc).  I never felt like I fit into any of those premade categories anyway (although I came across the lesser known “strawberry” body type and I think that may suit me the best.)

There’s one thing Hollywood Legends have in common (besides money, of course) and that’s a signature look.  True Glamour Icons think of themselves as a brand, and they rarely stray from that.  Can you imagine Elizabeth Taylor without diamonds?  Or Gwen Stefani without her cool girl chic look?  Of course not… that’s because these Starlets found their “look.”  If you are going to be an Everyday Starlet you need to find a signature look that suits you.  Finding your style is a long process, and it may (and probably will) evolve over time.

Spring Features

Today is the first day of Spring… it hardly feels like it here in New England, but the hope of warmer weather is highly anticipated.  A new season is a great time to set some goals for yourself.  I got the idea from one of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, which posts a list of goals for each season.  I tried this last Summer and I was surprised at how many of my goals I reached.  So I thought I would share with you some of my goals for this Spring…

Get outside more. I’d love to walk or jog outside daily, but in New England that’s not always possible.  But this winter has been so bad I plan to get outside for some sun and fresh air as often as I can.

Stretch daily. I take dance classes weekly and June is our big recital… my dance teacher has added splits to my Jazz dance, so I’ll be focused of getting more flexible until then.

Try this Sesame Noodle recipe with Buckwheat or Soba noodles instead of pasta.

Make an Easter Brunch complete with Mimosas

Try this Grilled Vegetable Salad recipe

Make mint juleps for the Kentucky Derby on May 3rd… and of course treat myself to a new hat.

Have a spa day.  I used to take Saturdays as a beauty day, but then my life got so hectic and I stopped.  I’m longing to have a whole day dedicated to a home facial, mani/pedi, bubble bath, and some fashions mags… maybe a chick flick to round out the day.

Try orange lipstick. It’s out of my comfort zone, but I’d like to find a shade that works for me.

Visit a flea market.  I’ve never been to one, but I’ve always wanted to try it out to see if I can find some cute vintage finds.

Learn more about photography.  I don’t know if I will have time to take a class, but I’m going to start with tips from other blogs like  Pretty Shiny Sparkly, Independent Fashion Bloggers, and To Vogue or Bust.

Post every weekday.  I have been focused on moving Everyday Starlet from blogger to wordpress and redesigning the site, but I plan to get back to posting content regularly.

Make YouTube videos. I’m planning to add some beauty advice/technique videos to Everyday Starlet.  I have some ideas in mind, but if you have any that you’d like to see just leave me a comment below.

What are your goals for Spring?
