How could anyone feel blue when they’ve got a rainbow right at their fingertips? Am I right or am I right? I’m a firm believer in dressing for the mood you want to be in. If I’m feeling low energy and want to perk myself up, I’ll put on a yellow dress and let it brighten my mood. I figure the same rule must apply to our nails!
This colorful DIY by nail artist and industry expert Tracylee Percival makes me want to bust out some jazz hands. If you’re not feeling the rainbow and want to go with your own hues, Tracylee suggests choosing colors that are complimentary in color and tone.
If there’s one thing I love to celebrate, it’s friendship! Having positive people around who you can count on to always be supportive, make you laugh, lift you up, and keep you in check with their constructive honesty is an essential key to happiness.

There are great festivals and other happenings going on all around the world that some of us only get to experience via social media. I’m lucky to have had incredible experiences at Coachella, but there are many things I’ve yet to do. The #FOMO (fear of missing out) is real!
I love the idea of recreating your own version of an experience when you can’t make it to the real thing. What a genius idea!
Will any of you be trying this at home?
So many of you often ask when and how I began acting. The truth is – I always have! Of course in the beginning it wasn’t on a giant sound stage surrounded by professional camera operators but in the basement with my siblings. I didn’t have the same opportunities then as I do now but we found ways to create our own stage and I hope that inspires some of you who would love to act but don’t know when or how.

I am a big fan and I love your blog! I thought this was a great opportunity to ask you
Whether I’m packing for a trip or planning out a jam-packed day, choosing versatile clothes and accessories allows me to enjoy the journey rather than worry about having extra things on hand to change into. I like to keep things as low maintenance as possible. To me that means packing less by wearing styles that can fit into any scenario — while being fashion forward and comfortable, of course.
Besides my sunscreen, which I never leave the house without no matter the time of year, here is a list of my double duty must haves that will take you from the beach, to brunch, out to dinner, and back again!
When I was planning for Brooks’ birthday party, I made sure we had all his favorite foods on hand. Typical pool parties have hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, potato chips with creamy dip, and a sweet, sugary cake — I’m sure you’re thinking, YUM! I was, too.
But this was Brooks’ day, and I wanted to celebrate him and his healthy lifestyle. So instead of the typical fare we
When it comes to your health, it’s one thing to go with the flow and quite another to do what everyone else is doing. For me, going with the flow applies to situations like making group plans or ordering family style at a restaurant. If those plans aren’t something I want to get into or the dishes being ordered won’t agree with my stomach — I’ll throw in the flag because neither is right for me. However, I’ve found it’s easier than you think to make healthy changes to unhealthy options. You just need to have a plan and get creative.
I admire Lyndyn’s email below, because she’s not willing to go with the limited food choices available to her at school. They might work for others but it’s not working for her, so she’s looking to do something about it. Let’s see if we can help her out!
Last week, I made a big ol’ bowl of this delicious salad meant to be a side dish to our dinner. I overestimated the amount of ingredients and ended up with a lot leftover. For the rest of the week, I found myself snacking on this salad several times a day and when I ran out, I made it again.
This light salad is refreshing, zesty, and healthy. There’s no shame in having multiple servings because it’s really good for you! Make it as a side to your main meal or copy me by keeping it on hand for a ready-made snack.
Every couple of months, we change out our accessories to coincide with a new season. Boots get swapped
for sandals. Turtlenecks get tucked away so the tank tops can come out. Dark, moody colors take a back
seat so bright, happy colors can shine. Since we shake up all our other accessories, why not switch the one we use all day, every day?
Phone cases have come a long way since smartphones hit the scene. No matter what theme or style you’re
looking for, there’s a case for you. To go with my seasonal color palette (and mood!), I was in search of a fun summer-themed case.
I found so many perfect designs it was impossible to pick just one!

Which style is screaming to go home with you??
Crushes can be the best — and the worst. Fawning over someone from a distance is one thing, but taking it to the next level can be downright daunting. It is just as intimidating for guys to make the first move as it is for the ladies, so keep the below emails in mind next time a guy approaches you! It takes guts to start a conversation with someone you admire, so try to be kind and considerate if it’s a nice guy putting himself on the line for your affection.
Does anyone have additional advice for Darren and Eric? Let’s help these guys out!
I’m not a great talker when it comes to girls, but with my guy friends I’m very comfortable and relaxed. As for girls, I can be very nervous and do not have smooth conversations. I have been rejected several times because of
