If you’re looking for some great new products to try or tips & suggestions for mixing up your morning beauty routine then you’ll love this tutorial video from Peace Love Shea – Beauty Tips & Tricks.

CheckeredPrint

My favorite Spring 2013 collect was Marc Jacob’s amazing retro-inspired show for Louis Vuitton – I’m a lover of all things Mod and my closet is filled with shift dresses, drop waists, and boatnecks. My favorite parts of that collection were the yellow hues and the bold checkered print – If you’re an inspired by those pieces as I was check out WhoWhatWear’s Check Mate for a real world version.

I’m not sure if it’s all the music festival and Coachella chatter or just Spring fever but I’m attracted to all things fringe right now, and I’m clearly not the only one – Summer 2013 Trend: The Fringe.

MenswearSuits

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – The modern man should have a great fitting, classic suit in his repertoire. Still trying to find the right one? Here’s all the inspiration you need – Italian style – The Suit.

Tis the season for… Maxis! The Sartorialist did us all a favor and captured some lovely shots of one of Spring’s maxi trends – Grey dresses. It’s the perfect transitional color as we all wait for the weather to even out since you can pair it with black, white, or even brights – If You’re Thinking… Long Grey Dresses.

One of the most important factors to living a healthy, happy life is getting a enough sleep. Without sufficient rest your body can’t recover from workouts, your memory and concentration will be effected, you’ll even find it harder to say no to unhealthy foods and snacking. Before hitting the sack read T Nation’s Fascinating Facts About Sleep for interesting facts to keep in mind.

Another factor that can have a big impact are your stress levels – From ulcers and heart disease to insomnia and anxiety – Stress can affect virtually every aspect of your life. Read Lift Big Eat Big’s Is Stress Making You Weak? and learn more about how stress might be hindering your workout goals.
