A Long Day’s Journey Into Mac

They say, when one window closes another Mac opens… okay, maybe they don’t say that, I just made it up, clever huh? Anyway, I full intended to have a fabulous fashion post for you today, and start out 2015 with a sea of strong beauty, fashion, and glamour posts.  Unfortunately, life got in the way. (more…)

2015 New Years Resolutions

It’s  a new year, and that means a fresh start.  2014 had some highs and lows, and I really hoped to start 2015 fresh and organized… Unfortunately, issues with my laptop have started the year off to a rocky start.  But an Everyday Starlet must persevere.  So I am creating this post all on my new iPad (a Christmas gift I picked out before I knew a new laptop would be in my not-so-distant future).  I’m loving my iPad, and I guess it’s a blessing in disguise that I needed to learn how to use it as my main computer this week (normally I let technology sits around until I desperately need to learn how to use it).

That said, I’ve never been a fan of New Years “Resolutions” (who really sticks with them past Jan?)… But I am a very big fan of goals, and the start of a New Year is the perfect time to focus on the things you want to accomplish.  Here are my goals for the New Year… (more…)

It’s so important to have goals.  There is definitely something to putting your wishes out in the universe.  In the past I’ve let seasons go by, wishing things would happen, but never really making an effort.  A few summers ago I made a list of goals for summer…just a few silly things that I really wanted to do.  I was shocked when all of those things happened, and I had some of the best times of my life.  So now I try to make goals each season.  I’m in very good company, because some of my favorite bloggers, like The Glamorous Housewife and Cupcakes & Cashmere, do the same thing.  Here are some of my goals for Summer 2014: (more…)

Some would say that handwriting letters is a lost art.  I personally have to confess that my handwriting is less than glamorous.  However, true Starlets always have a signature, and I’m not just talking about their name (which they practice over and over again.)  They had signature paper, pens, ink… and it usually tied in with their personal style.

How to Stay Glamorous While Spring Cleaning

For most people, cleaning a house can be a daunting process.  So Spring Cleaning can feel overwhelming.  It’s true that many Old Hollywood Starlets has housekeepers, but many of them relished in the idea of keep a home.  Making your home feel fresh and clean for yourself and your family can be a very fulfilling thing… but how does a glamour girl actually stay glamorous in the process?  Here are a few tips… (more…)

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…

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?
