Fashion Expert Stefanie From Style Truly Shares Her Holiday Fashion Picks!

Let the countdown begin! We are only a couple days away from Thanksgiving and the December holidays are FAST approaching. We had the chance to speak with fashion and style expert Stefanie McKim-Eastburn from blog Style Truly to understand what styles and trends we should be seeing and wearing this coming holiday. Here is the run down of her top picks:

Holiday Jewelry

“This year and especially this holiday, I have been drawn to a good statement bracelet and watch duo with simple stud or dangle earrings. The other trend combination I love is long statement earrings and a simple bracelet paired with a ring,” says Stefanie.  

Holiday Dresses

“Right now I think the perfect holiday dress is anything velvet. Nothing has that holiday feel more than a chic velvet cocktail dress in either an emerald green, ruby red or dark navy blue color.”

Winter Wardrobe

“It’s hard to just pick three, but I would say, my favorite must-haves currently in my closet for winter are leather gloves, a good classic long pea coat, and a conductor style hat.”

Winter Wardrobe and Jewelry Trends From Blogger Lauren Imbriaco!

Fit Mommy in Heels blogger Lauren Imbriaco is an avid shopper and loves to find awesome deals for her growing Facebook and Instagram following. Here style is best described as sophisticated chic. We recently caught up with Lauren to get her style advice for the upcoming holiday season and here is what she had to say:

“When it comes to jewelry I stick to the “less is more” mindset. In the winter months I love to pair a statement necklace with camis and cardigans and if I’m wearing a turtleneck or cowl neck, I love a good pair of hoop earrings!”

So what are some wardrobes and styles we’ll be seeing this winter? “Leopard is all the rage right now and I don’t see it dying down anytime soon (at least I hope it doesn’t)! I’m personally loving the leopard bootie trend and having fun mixing and matching them with so many different outfits. It’s fun to find new ways to wear them outside of just denim jeans.” 

And with the shopping season starting for the holidays we asked her to pick the top 3 gifts to give your girlfriend for the holidays: “Oh this is a tough one. I’m going to have to say (1) Sephora self-tanning mist. It’s under $20 and doesn’t leave streaks on skin or stains on clothes! (2) The T3 convertible wand for perfect hair in minutes! And (3) a good skincare gift basket! With the winter months rolling around, it gets so dry and I know so many others are the same.”

There you have it, make sure to bring out the statement earrings and hoops, leopard booties, and those holiday gifts for your girlfriends this season. To keep up with more winter trends, please check out Lauren’s official blog here along with following her on Instagram here!

5 Clean Eating Hacks for Busy Millennials

Clean_Eating_Hacks_Hero.jpg

Are you a busy millennial in desperate need of some clean eating hacks? Clean eating--or any sort of diet, for that matter--can be especially hard when you are busy. I know this all too well! Millennials are no stranger to the side hustle; we are often balancing day jobs, passion projects, and busy social calendars, all at the same time, making our lives a little crazy. Still, that’s no excuse to be dipping into the McDonalds drive-through in a fit of hunger. I am going to share the best five clean eating hacks for busy millennials. These hacks are guaranteed to keep you clean, even on the busiest weeks!

1. Cook and freeze

Mark off one day a month to spend some time cooking. Get on Pinterest and do some research on clean eating recipes (I always look for hearty soups, gluten-free pasta dishes, or one-pan skillet meals). One of my favorite things to make is this awesome recipe for vegan butternut squash mac ‘n’ cheese! Basically, you want to find four freezer-friendly meals (not salad recipes or anything that will get weird in the freezer). Make all four meals on your cooking day and divide them into individual containers. You may want to invest in a large set of Tupperware, or mason jars, which are great for storing soups! Make sure you are portioning out your meals into single servings and not freezing a giant container of stir fry--the idea is to have meals ready to go when you need them.

On average, you will get about five to six meals per recipe, which means about 20 meals from one afternoon of cooking! Leave out only what you will eat in the next few days and freeze the rest, and then you can defrost the meals as you need them during the month. Doing this once a month is best, so you have time to eat through all your meals while they are relatively fresh.

This hack will keep you from getting sick of eating chicken chili for five meals in a row.

2. Squirrel away some snacks

Yes, you really are going to squirrel away some nuts! Raw nuts are the perfect snack when practicing clean eating. They are packed with protein, kill hunger, and are easy to eat on the go. Keep a stash of nuts at your desk at work, in your car, or even in your purse. When hunger hits and you are drawn to that vending machine, eat your nuts first, and they will settle that urge for a Snickers bar. Almonds are my go-to choice!

Clean_Eating_Hacks_3.jpg

3. Quick chop and wash

I am not going to BS you here--meal prepping every week is not for the “busy millennial.” That’s why I suggest giving yourself one day a month to cook those freezer-friendly meals. No one wants to spend their entire Sunday chopping veggies and grilling chicken breast to make their weekly meals. Weekly meal prep is one of those things that sounds good in theory but never really pans out. But some quick chopping, on the other hand, can be a total lifesaver.

Give yourself 30 minutes after you get back from the grocery store to wash the fruit and veggies you bought and to cut things like carrots and celery into sticks. Having food ready to eat during the week will save you time and make you more likely to reach for something healthy, since it will be just as easy to munch on some carrots as on some chips!

4. Dressings on the side

It’s always better to make your own food when you are on a clean eating diet; however, I know that is completely unrealistic for us to do all the time, especially when you are working full time.

When you do go out to eat, salads are always a safe bet. They are a great way to get your leafy greens and you can usually see all the ingredients, so you don't have to worry about hidden processed foods. Salads at home always take time to make, so go ahead and have someone else do the work for you!

Just order your dressing on the side, and if the dressing is ranch (sorry to say this, but that is not clean), order oil and balsamic vinegar on the side instead. You should also request any sort of candied nuts on the side so you can use them at your discretion. The “extras” on the salad are usually where the added sugars and calories are hiding.

Clean_Eating_Hacks_5.jpg

5. Protein shakes, bro!!

No, you don’t need to down crazy protein shakes like the meathead at the gym, but protein shakes are such a quick way to cure hunger when you are in a jam.

Read the labels on your protein powder and make sure you are getting one with no added sugar. I love the vegan pea protein from Sprouts! I will put a scoop in the blender with two handfuls of spinach (another way to get those leafy greens!), almond milk, and some frozen berries or cacao powder, and blend it all up.

If you are going to a party or social event where you know there will be limited options as far as clean eating goes, have a protein shake before you leave the house. That way, when you show up to your work holiday party and realize none of the food there is remotely clean, you at least have something in your stomach to hold you over. My husband always laughs at me when I am making a protein shake before a party, but I can’t tell you how many times I have been so thankful I did! Hunger is the worst enemy of any sort of diet, and there is nothing worse than feeling deprived or saying “I can’t eat any of that.”

I hope these five clean eating hacks for busy millennials will help you as much as they help me! If you have any other tips that have helped you keep it clean, I would love to know what is working for you. Please share with us at us@thebearandtheblonde.com or comment on our Facebook page!

Summer Time Sadness + Fall Fashion Trends with Maddy Crayy

Adventure seeking and life-liver, those words sum up Maddy Crayy's blog and Instagram page very well! When the Glamour Jewelry Box team came across her photos we knew she loved to have fun while looking stylish and trendy! 

Summer is coming to an end (we are feeling the summer-time sadness) but Maddy described what she loved (and will miss) about her summer wardrobe,  "My go-to summer clothing pieces were jumpsuits and maxi-dresses all the way! I'm all about trends that are super easy to execute but still look so put together and fashion forward."

And summer-time accessories? "I loved accessorizing big and bold patterns with simple jewelry pieces like gold chain or stacked necklaces, and simpler jumpsuits and dresses with big and bold statement pieces! For me, it's always so important to have some part of your outfit be a statement piece so you stand out in the crowd. It's an amazing way to bring out your personality through your apparel/accessories!" 

Maddy's start to blogging fell on her lap when her Instagram account following grew from her love of posting her fun adventures and when she had the chance to interact with like-minded Instagram accounts.

What's most adorable is that her boyfriend was the perfect partner for this venture, "I definitely couldn't do it without my boyfriend Sam though, he's been there every step of the way and is the amazing photographer behind the lens. He's inspired me to keep posting every day, and makes me laugh with his funny comments on my posts!"

42792634465_479599e70e_z.jpg

Now that we are approaching the fall season with cooler weather, Maddy recommends the following trends for the autumn season, "Fall is all about layering and faded colors! Normally fall for me means toning down my wardrobe to blacks and browns, but this year I'm loving keeping that color in my wardrobe, just something not as bright that really sticks with the fall vibe. My favorite color going into this season is definitely mustard yellow! If worn on an accessory, mustard yellow looks amazing with denim or black clothing pieces. Whereas with mustard yellow clothes, I'd definitely recommend simple gold jewelry to really bring attention to the color." 

"My favorite color going into this season is definitely mustard yellow!"

Sprinkles on Sunday: Fashion Blogger with SoCal Style

Fashion blogger, Jennifer Grech is a southern California based blogger with a focus on effortless style. Her blog Sprinkles on Sunday shares her favorite fashion finds and looks that are trendy and cool yet effortless.

When we came across her blog, we knew her style fits perfectly with the Glamour Jewelry Box especially with her simple and girly looks that are obtainable for the everyday woman. We had the chance to learn more about Jennifer’s love of fashion, her jewelry style, and everything else in between!

Jennifer’s first job out of college was in merchandising for a clothing brand and after she left that job, she was in search of a creative outlet. “For years my friends have come to me for fashion advice, so I decided to start Sprinkles on Sunday as a way to share what I love with women everywhere! My favorite thing about blogging is connecting with all of my readers! It has also been fun to meet other bloggers, many of which have become good friends!” said Jennifer.

When it comes to jewelry Jennifer is all about a fun pair of statement earrings. She said, “...[statement earrings] can transform any outfit! I also can't live without my Gorjana layering necklaces that I wear on a daily basis!”

What about favorite pieces in her wardrobe? “I can't live without my Karen Walker Super Duper sunglasses! You will see me wearing them in almost all of my posts!

Sophisticated & Styled: Casual Chic Trends with Stacie

We wanted to introduce an Austin-based fashion blogger that focuses on fresh classy looks by mixing high and low pieces that anyone can wear. Meet Stacie from Sophisticated & Styled.

Stacie’s style is best described as affordable, casual chic and easy to achieve, “I always hope my followers can come to my blog or Instagram and find an item that makes them feel good but doesn't break the bank. A few years ago I would have said I found so much of my inspiration on Pinterest and I still do, but the most of my inspiration comes from various bloggers on Instagram or some of my favorite magazines I still love to grab.”  

When it comes to jewelry Stacie loves layering her necklaces, “I always wear 1 - 3 every day and I love that I can switch them up depending on my outfit. I'm obsessed with dainty necklaces!”

So we asked Stacie a tough question: if you could only pick 3 essential pieces of clothing, what would they be and why? “Only 3! Gosh that’s hard but first I would say a good white tee, you just can't go wrong with a white tee paired with a cute pair of cutoffs or boyfriend jeans. Add your favorite heels or slip-on, put your hair in a top knot and you're good to go! Next would be a good versatile denim jacket. I literally wear mine year round! I'm always cold as rule of thumb - LOL, but it adds that perfect chicness to any look. Third would be a cute lace cami! They layer well and also look so good solo or paired with a cute pair of high waisted paper bag shorts or distressed denim.”

“I always loved following my favorite bloggers on Pinterest and Instagram until one day I looked over at my husband and said "I want to give this a try" - girl, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I haven't looked back. It’s been one of the most challenging ventures I have ever done, but also so rewarding. The most stimulating parts are the relationships I have made, but also the messages I get of my followers sharing pictures with me of looks they have created after seeing it on me or just sharing their joy after finding the perfect piece that put a smile on their faces!”

The team at Glamour Jewelry Box love Stacie’s style, her obsession with dainty necklaces, and her love with the relationships she has made with her followers as she took on a venture that she is extremely proud to continue!   

Please take some time to follow Stacie on her Instagram page and check out her official blog Sophisticated & Styled to get more tips and find deals on the trendiest outfits!

What is a Jade Roller?

This post is brought to you by Marianna Hewitt originally posted on Life By Me which can be find here

If you landed on this post you may be wondering, what is jade rolling? After seeing this tool on Dr. Oz I searched the internet to find out how to use a jade roller, what kind of before and after results I might get and any reviews I could find. I came across so many articles that shared the history of this beauty tool.

JADE FACIAL ROLLERS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR CENTURIES; THERE’S EVIDENCE OF THEM AS FAR BACK AS SEVENTH-CENTURY CHINA, WHERE THE STONE WAS BELIEVED TO HAVE HEALING AND PROTECTIVE PROPERTIES. LIKE MOST BEAUTY STRATEGIES THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME, THE ART IS IN A JADE ROLLER’S SIMPLICITY. THE MECHANISM IS DOWNRIGHT BASIC: IT FEATURES AN OBLONG STONE OF PURE JADE, USUALLY AN INCH TO AN INCH AND A HALF LONG, THAT’S ATTACHED TO A HANDLE WITH A METAL FRAME, LIKE A PAINT ROLLER. MANY VERSIONS ARE DUAL-ENDED, FEATURING A SMALLER STONE ON THE OPPOSITE END FOR USE ON SMALLER AREAS, LIKE AROUND THE EYES. – FASHIONISTA.COM

ROLLING JADE ACROSS THE SKIN WILL GET YOU GLOWING, COVENANT SAYS. “IT REVS UP CIRCULATION, DE-PUFFS THE EYE AREA, AND IMPROVES SKIN ELASTICITY—AND SINCE IT PROMOTES LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE, IT’S DETOXIFYING.” IT CAN HELP CALM AND EVEN OUT YOUR COMPLEXION, THE SKIN GURU SAYS, AND MAKE IT NOTICEABLY LESS PUFFY, DEFINING YOUR CHEEKBONES, JAWLINE, AND BROWS (AS WE CAN ATTEST). – WELLANDGOOD.COM

WHILE I LOVE THE INSTANT BRIGHTENING EFFECT JADE ROLLING HAS ON MY COMPLEXION, MY ADDICTION REALLY LIES IN JUST HOW SOOTHING IT IS TO PLACE THE COOL STONE ON MY FACE AS SOON AS I WAKE UP. “OUR FACIAL MUSCLES STORES A LOT OF TENSION,” CHANG EXPLAINS. “THIS TENSION CAN CAUSE WRINKLES AND FINE LINES, ESPECIALLY AROUND OUR FOREHEAD AND EYES.” USING THE JADE ROLLER OFTEN CAN HELP IRON OUT THESE KINKS—SO YOU’RE NOT JUST IMMEDIATELY GIVING YOUR SKIN A BOOST BUT ALSO PREVENTING WRINKLES DOWN THE LINE. – BYRDIE.COM

I purchased mine on Amazon and was OBSESSED ever since I first used it. When using it for the first time you will notice the results immediately, I prepped mine with a facial oil then went in for the rolling.

BENEFITS OF USING A JADE ROLLER

  •  brighten complexion
  • diminish appearance of fine lines
  • increase blood circulation
  • assist lymphatic drainage

HOW TO USE A JADE ROLLER

It’s so simple, are you ready?

  • apply your favorite serum or moisturizer
  • roll the jade roller in an upward motion, working from your neck toward the forehead
  • that’s it!
  • pro tip: keep it in the refrigerator to give your skin some help with puffiness

Do you use a jade roller? If so, leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts on this beauty tool!
