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!
We 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.

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)

Celebrity Hair Stylist Jill Crosby is about to let you in on a little secret… Thinning hair, color catastrophes, unflattering cuts — celebrities deal with these same hair problems that the rest of us struggle with.
But you wouldn’t know it from the 2015 Academy Awards red carpet, and here’s why: A-listers have Jill to treat their tresses. As for you…check out lifeminute.tv/beauty/video/how-get-hollywood-hair-jill-crosby
We can’t all look like movie stars, but we can take a cue from them on the red carpet. Some favorites of the night…Rosamund Pike pulling off a strapless Givenchy, strapless being a trend.
And Margot Robbie rocked the beauty that ruled the carpet…a deep side part with a red lip.

Although we were underwhelmed by this week’s “blizzard” Juno, our skin is still taking a hit from the dry winter weather. Luckily one of our go-to lifestyle experts, Stacy Cox was on set talking tips to remedy the effects of the harsh cold.
She brought along goodies to do everything from softening and smoothing skin to fighting off the common cold. See exactly what’s in Stacy’s winter survival kit here!
Fergie is fit and fabulous, as we learned first-hand when we spent a few days with the 55 year-old royal, who recently dropped a jaw-dropping 55 lbs. The Duchess aka Sarah Ferguson, sat down with us to reveal how she slimmed down. We also hit some of New York’s hottest TV shows to share her Duchess Discoveries with the masses.
