Fashion Week is full of the kind of energy that makes you stop and think, the kind that excites you and elevates your tastes to another level. It brings out the inner hunger that we all share to embody our personalities through fashion. It follows, then, that when models grace the runway, every little bit of their look is dissected, from lip color to heel height. This season, look to their lashes to highlight emerging trends in the beauty sphere that are sometimes more artistic than practical. Here, founder of EnvyDerm Eyelash Growth Serum, Volume Mascara, and Intense Liquid Eyeliner, Nadia Smith, shares her take on which lash trends to look out for, and how to get the look at home.
Long, Thick Lashes
Long, luxurious lashes are a staple in the fashion world. Although they might not be as unique as the other trends that have recently popped up, they are a classic staple in the realm of beauty. Nadia says, "This season, as clean lines and defined cuts follow in the minimalist

Read More »from A Touching and Poignant Book to Read in Remembrance of 9/11: "Where You Left Me" by Jennifer Gardner Trulson
Jennifer described herself as one very fortunate girl. She had a successful law career, was happily married to a wonderful man (the love of her life), had an apartment in New York City, a house in the Hamptons, and two amazing children. Jennifer was living the kind of life that anyone would envy. Then everything for Jennifer changed in an instant. Doug, her beloved husband for nearly seven years was killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center, and she became a widow at age thirty-five. Though completely devastated, Jennifer still considered herself blessed. After his sudden death, she was done with the idea of romantic love-fully resigned to being a widowed 9/11 single mother. Fortunately, the chance encounter with convivial stranger Derek Trulson changed everything. Read her memoir and experience Jennifer's sardonic style as she tells her captivating story of loss, resilience, friendship, love, and healing. A real page turner, "Where You Left Me" is a bittersweet love story that

The reality show spectrum has taken over television, and, by extent, our lives. The Real Housewives of every city in America have become household names and the Kardashians have become idols of international success. Given this recent and undeniable "reality frenzy," we can't help but ask ourselves: why are we so obsessed with reality TV?
Is it that reality TV portrays real life, and we can't help but be drawn to something we sympathize with? The equation can't be that simple. It is that these sorts of shows carefully combine reality with fantasy to set up a lifestyle that we envy yet relate to.
What we the viewers want to see in reality TV are essentially two elements: characters and progress. We want to watch someone who is truly a character: someone funny, someone who deals with the same issues that we do, only in an exaggerated way or under unusual circumstances. Take the Kardashians again as an example: sure, any mother of multiple children can relate to Kris Jenner on raising

There is no magic secret or miracle pill that will allow you to achieve and maintain a perfect body for life. If there were, we would all have gorgeous bodies, and never have to watch what we eat or run a single lap on the tread mill. As a personal trainer, and the President of Browning's Fitness Centers, I have trained, or overseen the training of thousands of people who are struggling with their weight and fitness levels. So I can tell you, achieving your ideal body shape takes time, and determination and consistency. And sometimes, it means saying no to things that you would really like to say yes to. There is just no way around that.
But here's the good news. Getting into shape isn't a question of skipping breakfast or lunch and starving yourself, or running yourself ragged on the treadmill week. You don't have to ruin your quality of life just to be fit. Fitness is a state of mind, and getting into shape is about changing how you THINK about the choices you're making every day.

1. A Change of Shoes: CitySlips
If there's a time to wear flats, Fashion Week is not it. Trendy sky-high heels wreak havoc on your feet whether you're a model, celebrity, editor or blogger running from show to show. Give your toes a break between engagements with comfy flats that fit in your bag.
2. Long-wearing Color: Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color and 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil
A statement-making loud lip or eye look is a must-have for Fashion Week. For a chic, classic red lip or edgy smokey eye that lasts, we love Urban Decay. The shadow pencil is easy to apply even in the back of a cab and stays on like no other product we've tried. The lip pencil is highly pigmented and does not budge even after your second or third after-party cocktail.
3. A long-lasting blowout: John Freida 3-Day Straight + Volume Refresher
We think there's a reason why fashion world people are always photographed with a high top-knot bun: they haven't had time for a blowout. If you can

Everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Emma Stone have spotted this chic look. But have you ever wondered if bangs would work for you? Page Daily found some tips and tricks to making bangs work on any face shape and hair type.
"The shape of your face (heart, oval, round, etc.) has really no impact on determining the type of bang to get," says Amanda Scott, stylist at Serge Normant in New York City. Some key factors to take into consideration when getting bangs include bone structure, facial features and how the bang will complement your overall hair style.
A variation of a bang (including a fringe for those with wavy/curly hair) will usually work well on anyone, regardless of face structure or hair type. Scott recommends avoiding short blunt bangs (ones that go above the eyebrow.) These bangs are hard to pull off and can bring you back to your awkward middle school days. Rounded/arched bangs are another tricky look-often creating the illusion of a larger face. "Typically, bangs should

Vera Wang celebrated the launch of her latest fragrance, Lovestruck, with Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester last week at the fabulous James Hotel. Vera was there to tell us about Lovestruck:
"Lovestruck is about the emotion and rush you feel when you are falling in love and going for it…those heart-pounding moments of spontaneity," Vera said of her new scent creation, which has notes of florals, woods and musk.
Lovestruck comes in a gorgeous and feminine flower bottle. Vera, who wore a black jumpsuit, added that Lovestruck was inspired by a modern day twist on Romeo & Juliet. It captures the feeling of a woman who is struck by love, captivated by passion. It represents an irresistible romance.
Leighton, who is featured in the fragrance's ad campaign, stopped by later after a filming of Gossip Girl looking gorgeous in a white dress with a leather belt and some of the highest heels we've ever seen. Her hair was swept into an elegant messy updo with an edgy studded barette. Leighton
