Myth: Drinking coffee through a straw will keep my teeth whiter and breath fresher

Straw Coffee

This is not necessarily true. Many people do believe by sipping their lattes and cappuccino’s through a straw will get the coffee to pass their teeth and protect the enamel preventing stains. At the very most you might be reducing the rick of stains, but you are not eliminating it.

One thing to consider is that sucking on a straw is no different than sucking on a cigarette – it causes those unattractive aging, smokers lines. Read More >

For me, beauty is being comfortable in your own skin –  but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have an elegant gown (or two) either. I own everything that I wear from head to toe. I don’t work with a stylist and I love choosing my clothes for every-day-looks and red carpet events. I truly enjoy the time that it takes to pull that perfect look together myself.

Lydia Hearst

It is hard to pinpoint the exact moment that I wanted to work in entertainment and fashion, but it is something I remember always having my heart set on. The fashion industry is fickle and fast-paced – Trends and faces change every season – though, I have always loved the creative process. For someone who is only 5’7″ (give or take an inch), shy and unique looking, becoming a true model was no small feat. But, as fate would have it, I became one of the lucky ones. I was discovered by Steven Meisel and given my first VOGUE cover in Italy, March 2004, and shortly there after my first campaign, Prada FW2004. I had no idea what being a model even entailed - even though I knew that it was what I wanted to do and a part of who I was destined to become. Showing up at Milk Studios in Chelsea Piers surrounded by models like Karen Elson, Elise Crombez, Gemma Ward, Jessica Stam and Raquel Zimmerman was SO intimidating. These were the beautiful women who I looked up to and admired as I poured through my monthly fashion magazines… Then suddenly, there they were in the flesh. These women were shooting a campaign for one of the greatest fashion houses in the world and there I was, among them. This moment was a dream come true! And yet, it was only just the beginning…

From my experience, I can honestly say that one should never give up on their dreams. Instead of going through life saying “I want” or “I hope” say “I WILL”! It is important to always believe in yourself and chase your dreams. I did, and I still do.

Close Up – The Possibilities in Life…

Monday, December 8, 2014

   Every moment happening now makes up the present – right here and right now in your life doesn’t have to be enmeshed with your past. It’s entirely possible to start anew! Who hasn’t been hesitant at one time or another to “start over” and begin again with a new project, goal or relationship due to whatever occurred in the past? I know I have been before. The past is the past… That’s where it should stay. This moment here and now is entirely different and new, which gives you the choice to go in any direction you want.
   It’s unfortunate that for so many life and love can be dictated by fear. No one might ever fully understand what it truly is that makes you, you… But the way I see it, is that even if I end up crying I can’t help but remain hopeful and open myself up to the possibilities. Experiences and relationships are paramount - My relationships with people are what motivate and inspire me in my life. There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Why not embrace each moment?! Life isn’t meant to be lived in comfort-zones… Take chances and don’t be afraid of the results - If you don’t challenge yourself you may never truly know yourself or grow. “Playing it safe” really just means that you’re going to miss out on a lot.
   A way to bridge a relationship with friends, family and those you love (including yourself!!) is to be honest with the heart and not just face literal truths. In life, there will always be risks that cause vulnerability and can sometimes lead to pain… BUT, sometimes the most cataclysmic changes in life come from pain. It’s important to remember that life is composed of moments – You have to take those moments as they come… Impulsively.
