It’s been a busy start to Spring at our little LifeMinute digs — just 600 square feet of cozy white couch — and it’s been graced by a few of our fave celebs, from Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson to Hollywood’s It Girl Jamie Chung, to the incomparable music man Wyclef Jean, spilling the scoop on what they’ve been up to this season…
Gettin’ “Clefified” with Wyclef Jean
Now — the above is called “Clefified” and that’s just what we all got (Wyclef’s version of a head-band, the physical tribute to his new album Clefication) before sitting down for his interview. We haven’t washed our foreheads in a week — but that’s another story.
The lead single “Divine Sorrow” has been getting some serious play on our iPods since its release last November. The best we could have hoped for were some serious details on his famous collabs…from Whitney Houston to Shakira — well, we got it all, natch — but when he spontaneously broke into an acapella rendition of some old school “Gone Till November…” Well, I was seriously stoked. The album is in stores this month. It’s a must listen.
Gettin’ Down and Dirty…(well…Clean, actually) with JTF
Next up, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and it was awesome timing. My fab office mate (yes, you know who you are) cannot stop sneezing, so when our new favorite (self-proclaimed) neat freak and Modern Family star JTF — also a fellow allergy sufferer – let us in on his gig with AAFA and Febreze, we were thankful. He came by to share the dirt on…well, dirt…or allergens, to be exact. Turns out most of us are going about our Spring Cleaning the wrong way and stirring things up instead of removing them, so he showed us how to get the job done right. Check it out.
Yay, no more sneezing fits from our cubie roomies.
Jamie Chung’s Spring Must-Haves
That’s right…Jamie Chung stopped by. Now it’s no secret that I love to shop (most of us at LifeMinute do) and we welcome any weather that makes it easier for us to get out and get spending. What’s on our must-have list? Pretty much everything Jamie brought with her to our studio. Spoiler Alert: Jamie loves her Jergens as much as we do. Of course she does, you have to see her skin close up to fully understand. And that bod — well, she completely inspired me (and the rest of the LifeMinute team!) to start our own Pranamar Resort vacation fund. (Eat, sleep, yoga…YES please!) Her other Spring picks? A-split pencil skirts, and a fruity smoothie recipe you must try:
•1 frozen banana
•2 pitted dates
•handful of kale
•handful of blueberries
•1 scoop vanilla protein powder
•about 1-2 cups almond milk and some ice
Who knew blueberries and kale could live in perfect harmony? Yum! (Click for more)

Most known musically for his times with The Fugees, Wyclef Jean is back with a new album that brings out his hip hop/reggae sound we love.

He also gave us a sneak peek at the latest issue with a shirtless Justin Bieber on the cover. Swoon!
No…that’s not the cool new phrase on the street…it’s actually the name of Jamie Chung’s lifestyle blog which she dished all about to us along with some must-haves for Spring and a few of her favorite beauty finds.
