I’m always getting compliments on my statement necklaces, and truthfully, I probably only wear 15 or so from my 100+ collection (I know, I’ve got a bad shopping habit). Statement necklaces are pretty for any girl whose style isn’t over the top. If you are like me, you buy boring black and white pieces and you might be obsessed with white tees and jeans. And this isn’t a bad thing.

Statement necklaces offer that boom factor we all want in our daily looks but without trying too hard. But shopping for statement necklaces can be an intimidating challenge as most of us always want to match everything. Le sigh!

So here’s a few tips on how to wear (and shop) for statement necklaces plus a video of my favorites in my collection.

While I absolutely adore my curls and get a kick out of finding new ways to wear them, my blow-outs warrant affectionate head turns from the opposite sex and give pause to a few girls who didn’t want to look my way to begin with.

Most are amazed because I am quick to confess that I do them right over my tiny kitchen sink. But the unbelievable part is that it usually takes me less than 20 minutes. Which in my style book, makes it the best blow-out ever!

Since I love you (I mean duh, you are freaking awesome), I’m sharing my secret weapon to fabulous hair.

My fascination for makeup and skin care reached its peak when my first pimple arrived. I was devastated. Imagine this–it’s prom night, you’ve got the perfect date, an amazingly gorgeous gown, and guess who’s come to crash your party. Yep, a huge strange colored pimple positioned right on your nose. EEK! My mother will tell you it was the universe’s way of punishing me for stealing her hot red lipstick and rocking it on picture day without her permission. I blame it on not properly taking care of my skin.

Although I now consider myself a Snapchat pro, when I first downloaded it I was beyond confused. I think I downloaded and deleted it within 10 minutes. So I totes understand your pain, confusion and resistance. But in the past few months, my blogger friends and I have come to really LURVE this video sharing app. It’s the new way to send a message to your friends and to lurk all up and through people’s lives. Creepy, but isn’t that what social media is?!

But why should you enter the world of yet another social media application?

Tia Mowry says she is one of those celebrities who will always remember a face. But I was still surprised that she recognized me from our last interview (maybe it’s the grey).

The wildly gorgeous and humble actress is the star of The Cooking Channel series Tia Mowry at Home and Nickelodeon’s Instant Mom. She partnered with Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Lustre as a Brand Ambassador for the day to share her tips and recipes for planning a glamorous Mother’s Day experience.

I got a chance to chat with Tia and she dished her cooking tips for the busy mom, what secrets she’d tell her mother and how being a mom has changed her.
