How To Take The Perfect (Hands-Free) Selfie

Tips, Tricks & Apps that Help You Take Better Selfies

How to take the perfect selfie
1. Natural light is the most flattering. Always keep your light source in front of you.  The selfie above has no filter… just great lighting.

2. Find your best angle. Almost no one has a perfectly symmetrical face… so choose a side. Shoot angling down to slenderize and up if you need to eat a steak.

3. Get some distance between you and the camera to eliminate distortions.  The worst is the “bell pepper nose” that happens when you take a photo too close to your face.

…Shawl, cardigan, cape, a turtleneck… So versatile and Butters approved! Cozy and utterly inexpensive, the previously sold-out Zara Blanket Scarf – now available on Amazonfor under $30- makes an affordable, on-trend no-fuss transitional piece. Much like its budget-breaking Burberry counterpart, it can be worn a ton of different ways, which I TRY to show in my very first video. Scoop it up now; it was going for over $150 on ebay last year!

Inspired by Mrs. Mia Wallace, this collection has everything you need to recreate Mia’s dark, edgy look from the film. It contains five shades of Eyeshadow (three are brand new!).

Each shade features our Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

The shiny black case features the fateful Ezekiel passage voiced by Jules Winnfield in the film. Inside, there’s a generous mirror and a blood-red double-ended brush (a compact shadow brush and a multitasker brush). This palette also comes with a “Get the Look” card—with step-by-step instructions for creating a modern version of Mia’s look from the film.

What you see is what you get: Righteous (light cream matte), Tyranny (warm brown matte), Vengeance (deep taupe-brown matte-satin), Furious (white satin) and Anger (black satin w/slight tonal sparkle).

Affordable Every Day Designer Handbag

I want to invest in a durable every day designer handbag. What do you recommend and where can I find a durable authentic designer bag for under $500? I’m ok with pre-owned, as long as it will hold up.

Great question! When the supple leather of my Valentino Rockstud Medium Leather Tote started showing signs of wear, I too invested in an every day bag I could beat up without feeling guilty. I’m REALLY hard on my handbags.

I scored a vintage Louis Vuitton Saumur 35 saddle bag for $325.  You can find all sorts of deals at online consignment stores that guarantee authenticity.

Louis Vuitton Saddle Bag

This particular bag is from the early 90s and is STILL in great condition. I love the broken-in feel and vintage look. Also, since it’s a saddle bag, it has two separate compartments, one I use for cosmetics/beauty and the other for my wallet/paperwork. if you’re looking for a durable bag that you can one day hand down to your daughter, I highly recommend a pre-owned Louis Vuitton from one of my favorite online consignment shops.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Saumur Vintage Saddle Bag

As far as new bags go, I usually purchase new bags, like the Valentino mentioned earlier, from:  RueLaLa.  However, Kate Spade frequently offers handbags for 70% off via invite-only private sales.  Sign up to receive Kate’s emails and check out her next sale.  Scroll through some of Kate Spade’s regular sale items, which are affordable, durable and great for every day.
