Four easy looks to pull off this Fall

fashiontrendsrassi_WHKY.00_00_26_07.Still003

A cropped boxy jacket goes great with a slimmer bottom. Check out Levi’s 721 High Rise Skinny Jeans, slim through the hip and thigh with a classic skinny leg and high-rise waist.

Dark wash jeans are always great for Fall. Try Levi’s 715 Boot Cut Jeans, slim through the hip and thigh with a boot cut leg that gives a leg-lengthening fit.

Denim on denim is huge, just make sure what you wear on top is slightly a different color than what you wear on bottom. This look is great with Levi’s 711 Skinny Jeans.

A leather jacket is a great go-to this season. Pair it with Levi’s 501 CT, the 501 Original Fit Jean, straight through the hip with a straight leg, but customized and tapered to your liking.

TV host, personality and interior designer, Nate Berkus blew us away with a sneak peek at the new LG Studio Appliance line which he unveiled at the 10th annual Dwell on Design show in L.A.

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 7.32.55 AMNate always goes for timeless and classic pieces that will never go out of style, no matter what room he’s working on and LG is the perfect compliment to his designs in the kitchen.

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 7.31.04 AMOne surprise is that the inside of these appliances are as equally beautiful as the outside. This oven might be too chic to cook in!

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 7.32.01 AMThis is LG’s Ultra-Large Capacity French Door fridge which has a ton of inside real estate for all your food and goodies plus a super sleek outside so it covers form and function.

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 7.32.38 AMAnd this fridge has a secret door inside the main door to provide even MORE room and storage. Didn’t think it was possible? Well LG did it.

In the Breakfast Club with Molly Ringwald

We attended a breakfast event in Arizona + Molly Ringwald hosted the event…so…ipso facto we’re now in The Breakfast Club with the 80’s pop princess!

dovemomconferencemollyringwaldWe sat down with her at the 2015 Mom 2.0 Summit where she shared her Dove #BeautyStory and how for her it all stemmed from confidence within. It starts with having a real strong interior life…not just what’s on the outside. So she turned to creativity to get her through her awkward teenage years. And being a mom this is something she tries to pass along to her own children.

The Ting Tings Take It To Studio 54

May 15, 2015  |  CELEBRITY BUZZ, ENTERTAINMENT, MUSIC  |  , , , , , , ,  |  Comments Off on The Ting Tings Take It To Studio 54

Another monumental moment for us at LifeMinute! Getting to hang out with Jules and Katie from The Ting Tings for an hour, chatting about Studio 54, dressing like a toddler and how not getting drunk before going on stage is really working out better than they thought.

image3And if you’re asking yourself…who are these people?? Maybe the band name isn’t ringing any bells but their hits, “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up and Let Me Go” should definitely resonate. Did I just get you back? Good!

Their new album Super Critical is a different vibe than what we’re used to hearing from this pop-duo…more of an American late 70s, early 80s disco funk thing going on. Something straight out of Studio 54, it’s super fun and addicting.

Also addicting…their delicious British accents…take a listen for yourself and check out the full interview. lifeminute.tv/music/video/ibiza-usa-ting-tings-do-it-again

My favorite part was when Katie described her personal style as “dressing like a toddler.” Which I guess is true but she pulls it off with ease in a leather romper, lace top, sparkles in her hair, black tights and converse sneakers. LOVE!

Sophia Bush Shares Her Smile Secrets

May 12, 2015  |  CELEBRITY BUZZ, HEALTH & FITNESS  |  , , , , ,  |  Comments Off on Sophia Bush Shares Her Smile Secrets

It’s no secret that actress Sophia Bush from Chicago PD is one of those natural beauties….even People magazine seems to think so and named her one of the World’s Most Beautiful Women in their latest issue. So it shouldn’t be a surprise to hear she decided to do her photo shoot for the mag WITHOUT MAKEUP!!

image2We heard all about it when she stopped by our west coast studio.  Sophia shared that it’s liberating to not have any makeup on and she actually doesn’t where a lot of makeup in her everyday life. As long as you can rock a bright, white smile…then you’re pretty much always good to go.

Her secret weapon is a Philips Sonicare toothbrush. She got hooked on it years ago when her dentist recommended it and has been obsessed with everything Sonicare ever since. Of course it works!! Just look at those pearly whites.

She also just tried out their Philips Zoom treatment which is only a 45 minute visit to the dentist and when you come out, your teeth are up to eight shades whiter. Just 45 minutes??!! Amazing!

Celebrities Spill their Spring Must-Haves

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

wyclef

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

pandg-jessetylerferguson8

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

image2

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)

Paul Blart Takes On Las Vegas and 100 Segways to Break World Record

April 15, 2015  |  CELEBRITY BUZZ, ENTERTAINMENT  |  , , , , , , , ,  |  Comments Off on Paul Blart Takes On Las Vegas and 100 Segways to Break World Record

How many segways does it take to break the Guiness World Record of the largest group 360 spin?? About over 100! And LifeMinute was there to witness the fete at the Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 premiere in NYC.

Now Kevin James and myself have a lot in common so I was a bit star struck when he started coming down the carpet on his trusty segway. First, we both hail from Long Island, actually growing up only a few towns over from each other. Second, we both attended college at SUNY Cortland (Go Red Dragons) only I have one up on him here, I actually graduated where as he left to pursue comedy and acting. Maybe he actually has one up on me as he’s the wealthy and famous one here. (Stay in school kids!)

And third…we can both rock a mean mustache…

IMG_3785

The film is definitely family friendly and full of laughs. I appreciate a good laugh sometimes, especially after a very busy work week. For more on the film and Kevin James, check out… lifeminute.tv/movies/video/cast-paul-blart-mall-cop-2-world-premiere

 

Wyclef Jean Is Back

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 stopped by LifeMinute to share deets on Clefication and gave an impromptu performance of “Gone Till November.” Check it out!
