With This Ring…

by Alison Gary @ Wardrobe Oxygen

When I got engaged, I was 27 and a size 12. Karl bought me a ring in a size 8 which fit perfectly in November 2002 when he proposed, but was a bit snug in the warmer months when hands swell. When I got engaged, I went on a diet. Actually, I went on a few different diets, finally settling on the South Beach Diet. By time I was having my wedding dress altered, I was a size 10. This was the time when we also bought my wedding band, also a size 8. I got married in June of 2004. By August, wearing both rings was uncomfortable. By December, I was down to just wearing my engagement ring, only putting on the wedding band for social situations. When I got pregnant, the engagement ring no longer fit. I would try to squeeze it on occasionally, but couldn’t wear for long before it got uncomfortable. I shared on the blog when thanks to Weight Watchers I was able to fit my ring again. But that didn’t last. I stopped Weight Watchers when I saw myself adopting bad habits to stay within my points. I haven’t been able to wear any […]

Everything We Know About Jack's Death on This Is Us

Everything We Know About Jack's Death on This Is Us

by Michele Corriston @ PEOPLE.com

Spoiler alert: Our favorite TV dad, Jack Pearson, likely died in a fire, based on the shocking ending to the This Is Us season 2 premiere.

After Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) end their separation and decide to deal with his alcoholism together, the episode cuts to her driving up to a burnt house with bags of his possessions as firefighters surround the scene.

At PEOPLE and EW’s screening and Q&A, the cast alluded to more hints about Jack’s passing, specifically in the scene where teenage kids Kate and Randall hear the tragic news.

“That’s just a piece of the puzzle,” Moore told PEOPLE.

The clues? Kate holding a stuffed dog, Randall with a red-headed girlfriend by his side, and Kevin nursing a broken leg leading up to the big monumental event.  Rebecca is also wearing a Steeler’s jersey, representing her husband’s favorite football team.

Then, join our editors as they bring you expert insight and can’t-miss social buzz during the premiere episode of the hit NBC drama. “I’m glad we’ve revealed a little bit to everyone,” Ventimiglia said. “I know people have been asking questions, and I stay silent, because there’s so much I can’t reveal, but I’m glad they know at least a bit.” Added creator Dan Fogelman said during the panel, “This was always the plan. We talked about the fire and what happened to Jack.” This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC. Reporting by PATRICK GOMEZ and BRIANNE TRACY

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Chip and Joanna Gaines are the definition of marriage goals, but their relationship didn’t necessarily have a fairytale start.

In the first chapter of The Magnolia Storyreleased as a sneak peek today, the Fixer Upper dream team spills the details of how they met — and it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

Joanna agreed to go out on a date with Chip after meeting him and his roommate “Hot John” — who she actually tried to approach minutes earlier, but was too shy — in the waiting room of her dad’s auto shop. She had second thoughts, however, after Chip arrived an hour and a half late to pick her up.

RELATED: HGTV Star Joanna Gaines Talks Fixer Upper Fame and Work-Life Balance: ‘Family Is First’

“He didn’t apologize for being late, either. He had so much confidence. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Only Chip could be an hour and a half late and have no one mad about it,” Joanna writes.

WATCH THIS: HGTV Stars Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri Compete to Make the Better Birdhouse

The chapter continues to describe the timeline of their relationship, which didn’t actually start until months after they first went out, when Chip (in typical guy fashion) finally called Joanna back.

“I’d made a bet with Hot John to see who could hold out the longest before calling our dates back,” Chip writes “I really wanted that fifty dollars from John! That’s the only reason I didn’t call.”

After they went out a second time, the rest was history.

Nate Berkus Shares How His Entertaining Style Has Changed Since Welcoming Daughter Poppy

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Nate Berkus is the expert on all things party planning. But since becoming a father to one-year-old daughter, Poppy, the designer’s go-to entertaining style has had a few changes.

“We entertain around her nap schedule now,” Berkus, artistic advisor for LG Studio, told PEOPLE at a breakfast on June 8, which celebrated the sleek line of high-end appliances he helped design.

RELATED: WATCH: Jessie James Decker Gives a Tour of Her Lovely Florida Beach House

But when Poppy isn’t snoozing, Berkus, 44, and husband Jeremiah Brent, 31, keep her busy with poolside play dates that are a far cry from a formal outdoor gathering.

“Our home is now filled with blow up toys from Target in the pool as opposed to margaritas,” Berkus said.

WATCH THIS: Designer Nate Berkus ‘Can’t Wait to Be a Family of 3!’

 

And the menu planning is even simpler.

“We throw food on the barbecue, we’ve actually even had a taco truck come once,” Berkus said. “We do put out snacks for the little ones, and they sit and throw them in the pool.”

Getting More from Fashion After 60

by Margaret Manning @ Fashion, Hair, Makeup for Older Women, Senior Dating, Travel

Today's conversation is likely to be controversial, so, I hope that you will bear with me! Not so long ago, I had the opportunity to travel down to Milan, Italy to meet with fashion expert, Melanie Payge. Our conversation was colorful, creative and more than a little controversial! Today, I want to share 6 guidelines that Melanie gave to our community for getting more from fashion after 60. You may not agree with all of them – I certainly didn’t – but they will certainly get you thinking! More than anything, they will give us something fun to chat about! Do you find yourself dressing differently these days, compared to your 40s, for example? Do you think that there are any “guidelines” that women our age can follow to get the most from our fashion choices? Or, do you think that fashion after 60 is all about comfort?

Khloé Kardashian with Tristan Thompson in Cleveland Together as Pregnancy News Is Revealed

Khloé Kardashian with Tristan Thompson in Cleveland Together as Pregnancy News Is Revealed

by Karen Mizoguchi @ PEOPLE.com

Khloé Kardashian and NBA boyfriend Tristan Thompson are together in Cleveland, Ohio, amid news that they are expecting a baby.

On Monday, the mother-to-be, 33, shared a photo of Lake Erie on Snapchat along with the caption: “I’m back!”

And on Tuesday, Thompson, 26, was spotted at the first day of the Cleveland Cavaliers training camp in Independence. The power forward practiced with teammates LeBron James, Richard Jefferson, Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith. Newest team member Dwyane Wade was not in attendance.

Thompson, who is already a father to 9-month-old son Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig, spoke to the media but did not discuss his relationship with Kardashian or the baby news.

“I got to take my two months and enjoy them. Be with my family and decompress,” he said about his off-season this year. “Because 12 months of basketball will drive you nuts.”

The father-to-be also attended media day on Monday, during which he took new portraits for the 2018 season.

Kardashian and Thompson, who have been dating since September 2016, “are absolutely thrilled” about the baby news, according to a source.

“This is something Khloé has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it. She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen,” a source previously told PEOPLE about Khloé’s marriage to Lamar Odom and her past romances with James Harden and French Montana.

Khloé’s pregnancy comes days after sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that Kylie is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott. In fact, the sisters are due around the same time.

“Kylie is over the moon about her pregnancy. Khloé and Kylie are both due around the same time. They are approximately four months along,” an insider close to the family recently told PEOPLE.

“Kylie loves how close-knit her family is and is thrilled to bring that to her own family. She feels more prepared than ever, especially since she will be sharing this journey with Khloé,” the insider said, adding, “They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters.”

Sister Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West are also expecting. The couple, who married in May 2014, will be welcoming their third child after hiring a surrogate to help them expand their family. They are already parents to 4-year-old daughter North West and 21-month-old son Saint West.

Khloé recently revealed that Cleveland has become her home away from home during a recent appearance on Steve Harvey‘s show, Steve.

“I do really love Cleveland, I really enjoy it,” she told Harvey about jetting back and forth from Los Angeles to Ohio. “I love the best of both worlds.”

A source told PEOPLE in July that Kardashian and Thompson are house-hunting together. They’re not moving in together officially just yet, but the athlete (who has a home in Cleveland) is looking to rent a place in Los Angeles, according to the insider.

“Khloé is just the happiest,” said the source. “She loves spending every day with Tristan.”

Taylor Swift Sent Victoria Arlen Flowers After She Danced to 'Look What You Made Me Do' on DWTS

Taylor Swift Sent Victoria Arlen Flowers After She Danced to 'Look What You Made Me Do' on DWTS

by Dana Rose Falcone @ PEOPLE.com

Wishes from Taylor Swift make for a truly happy birthday. After Victoria Arlen danced to the singer’s hit “Look What You Made Me Do” on Monday night’s Dancing With the Stars, Swift sent her flowers with a sweet note.

“Victoria, you are incredible and I was so honored you danced to my song. I’m so inspired by you. Love, Taylor,” Arlen, who turned 23 Tuesday, read aloud after cohost Erin Andrews presented the paralympian with the gift.

For Arlen, the song choice made perfect sense. “I danced to her song ’22’ when I turned 22 on my last birthday, so I danced to her yesterday for this birthday,” she explained.

PEOPLE’s special issue 25 Seasons of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is on stands now.

The DWTS family also presented the ESPN host with a bright pink cake — the color she wore on the season 25 premiere to remind her of her first wheelchair, crutches and leg brace — topped with a disco ball.

A new age ushered in fresh bout of confidence for Arlen, who exposed her legs for the first time on the show Tuesday. The milestone comes just one year after she regained the ability to walk following almost four years in a vegetative state due to her transverse myelitis and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.

RELATED VIDEO: Bruno Toniolis Most Insane Dancing With the Stars Moments

“It’s putting on a whole different character and that’s very daunting for me,” Arlen said in rehearsal with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

Getting out of her comfort zone paid off for the pair; They earned a score of 20 out of 30 from the judges on Latin night.

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.

Shonda Rhimes & Grey's Anatomy Cast Take a Knee in 'Solidarity of Racial Justice' at 300th Episode Party

Shonda Rhimes & Grey's Anatomy Cast Take a Knee in 'Solidarity of Racial Justice' at 300th Episode Party

by Karen Mizoguchi @ PEOPLE.com

Shonda Rhimes and the cast of Grey’s Anatomy are supporting NFL players’ protest of racial injustice in the wake of the backlash from President Donald Trump.

“and we took a knee in solidarity of racial justice. #takeaknee#greysanatomy #300th,” Rhimes, 47, shared on Instagram Tuesday, along with a photo of her, Ellen Pompeo, Jesse Williams and Debbie Allen on one knee at the 300th episode celebration party. (Jason Winston George, who plays Ben Warren, was cropped out of the picture.)

“We kneel because we are supposed to be one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. #ilovethesepeople #300thepisode,” Pompeo captioned the same photo.

Meanwhile, Williams, 36, responded to a Twitter follower who tried to to get the hashtag #BoycottGreysAnatomy trending after their protest picture.

“No one’s scared of u. Also, u follow me. #GetYourLifeTogether See u this Thursday for our season premiere at 8pm!” the actor wrote.

The ABC drama, which is one of the longest-running scripted shows in TV history, will mark its 300th episode this season on Thursday.

Also on Monday, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny took a knee on the set of the upcoming reboot of The X-Files.

NFL players and celebrities continue to show their solidarity with athletes like Colin Kaepernick, who made headlines in Aug. 2016 for refusing to stand for the national anthem to protest racial injustice in the United States.

While numerous NFL stars kneeled and locked arms during the national anthem during a Sunday game in London, celebrities, including Stevie Wonder, Diddy and Uzo Aduba, lent their voices to the movement.

RELATED GALLERY: All the Stars Who Are Taking a Knee in Solidarity with the NFL National Anthem Protests

On Saturday, Rhimes tweeted: “I think: By kneeling, players don’t disrespect the flag.They ask US to respect the flag. They ask us to make the anthem true for all of us.”

During a rally speech in Alabama on Friday, Trump stated, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say, ‘Get that son of a b–ch off the field right now. Out, you’re fired.’”

RELATED VIDEO: Watch: Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

In addition, the president had a series of follow-up tweets. “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect…our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem,” he wrote. “If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”

Capsule Wardrobe: Fall Weekend Style

by Alison Gary @ Wardrobe Oxygen

Many have written me asking for a casual weekend look for fall. More polish than jeans and a tee shirt, more refined than leggings and a tunic. This capsule wardrobe is for you – weekend style refined. This capsule wardrobe is all about layering, so it can work now in late summer when it’s a bit breezy, and continue until there’s frost in the morning. However, most of these pieces can work into winter. Switch out the ankle pants for full length, add a pair of velvet jeans, change out the loafers for a pair of lace-up boots, throw in a cashmere or merino turtleneck.   Shop the Capsule: wrap sweatshirt | denim jacket | scarf | booties | loafers | necklace | striped sweater | camo sweater | v-neck sweater | silkscreened tee | striped tee | bag | jeans | pants If this combination of prints and colors isn’t your thing… no worries! Switch out the mustard for hot pink, plum, or even a neutral. This is a piece that is really versatile, however if you go with a neutral like tan, grey, or black it’s even more important to have the prints within the capsule. Below is […]

This Is Us Predicted the Kardashian-Jenner Baby Boom: 'Next Week, There'll Be a Bazillion More of Them'

This Is Us Predicted the Kardashian-Jenner Baby Boom: 'Next Week, There'll Be a Bazillion More of Them'

by Aurelie Corinthios @ PEOPLE.com

 

The universe works in mysterious ways — and in an almost unbelievable sequence of events, the much-anticipated season 2 premiere of This Is Us predicted a Kardashian-Jenner baby boom just hours after news broke that Khloé Kardashian is pregnant.

SPOILER ALERT: The following story contains details from Tuesday’s season premiere of This Is Us.

In a scene from Tuesday’s season premiere of the beloved NBC series, Justin Hartley‘s character Kevin Pearson FaceTimed his girlfriend Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) after leaving the set of his movie in Los Angeles, asking her if there’s any chance she could fly in. She told him she couldn’t make it because her mom is sick, bemoaning the fact that she would be missing out on celeb-spotting a Kardashian.

“The Kardashians aren’t going anywhere,” he reassured her. “They’re like gremlins — I promise next week there will be a bazillion more of them.”

RELATED: We’re Live with the Cast of This Is Us at the Season 2 Premiere – Join Our Viewing Party Now

Ironically, the scene was filmed long before news broke Friday that Kris Jenner‘s youngest daughter Kylie, 20, is expecting a baby girl with her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott. News of Kylie’s pregnancy was swiftly followed by her older sister Khloé’s own baby news on Tuesday: The 33-year-old reality star is expecting a baby with her boyfriend, Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson. And sister Kim Kardashian West, 36, is expecting her third child with husband Kanye West in January via a surrogate.

RELATED: ‘They’re Building an Army’ — Fans React to the News that Khloé, Kylie and Kim Are All Expecting

Though none of the women have publicly commented on the news, a source told PEOPLE on Tuesday that “over the moon” Kylie and Khloé are both “due around the same time.”

“They are approximately four months along,” the source said. “Kylie loves how close-knit her family is and is thrilled to bring that to her own family. She feels more prepared than ever, especially since she will be sharing this journey with Khloé.”

“They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters,” the source added. “Getting pregnant at the same time was totally unplanned, but they are really happy about it.”

This Is Us airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on NBC, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians season 14 premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on E!


20 Ways to Get More from Life in “Retirement”

by Margaret Manning @ Fashion, Hair, Makeup for Older Women, Senior Dating, Travel

Retirement ain’t what it used to be! This is one of the things that I have learned as I have talked with all of the wonderful women in our community. Unlike our own grandmothers, we see life after 60 as a time for exploring, growing, learning and giving back. We are raising our voices rather than keeping quiet. We are getting out into the world rather than sitting in front of the TV. We are embracing technology rather than getting stuck in our ways. So, in celebration of the dynamic and wonderful women in our community, today, I want to offer 20 ways to get more from life in "retirement." Even if you haven’t retired – or never plan to – I think that you will find these idea useful!

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

RELATED: Leonardo DiCaprio Eating Girl Scout Cookies at the Oscars Is the Internet’s Best New Meme

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

This Is Us Shocker: Is This How Milo Ventimiglia's Jack Pearson Died? Twitter Goes Crazy

by Lanford Beard and Michele Corriston @ PEOPLE.com

 

This Is Us fans have long speculated what exactly caused the mysterious death of series patriarch, Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) — now they may finally have an answer.

On the NBC hit’s season 2 premiere, fans learned circumstances that could have led to the beloved character’s death. And, as is custom with the tear-jerking drama, many, many tissues were required to get through the jaw-dropping moment.

WARNING: Spoilers ahead … 

The episode opened with Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack separated — but she decides she can’t give up on their relationship and tries to bring him home.

“I’m still really upset, and I don’t think I’m ready to talk about all that yet, but I shouldn’t have let you leave,” she pleads. “Because that’s not what we do. That’s not who we are. That’s not us.”

Jack insists that he is an alcoholic: “I have been drunk for weeks, and I thought I had it under control, like the first time, but I have a problem, Rebecca. And I’ve hidden it from you for a very long time. And I’ve hidden it from my kids, and I need to get a handle on it before I can walk back into that house. I’m sorry, baby. I am very embarrassed, and I am very sorry. I need to fix this on my own.”

Rebecca knocks on the door again and demands, “Get in the car, Jack. You are my husband, and I am your wife, and if you have a problem, we will fix it together.”

They kiss, and he obliges.

“A few months from now, everything will be back to normal,” she says.

Cut to the teenage Pearson kids sobbing as Kate (Chrissy Metz) says, “We have to find Kev. He needs to hear it from me.”

And at the end of the episode, Rebecca pulls up to a house with bags of Jack’s possessions, only to find it burnt to the ground, with firefighters surrounding the scene. She screams.

Did Jack die in the fire? Only time will tell — and Twitter is freaking out.

“I don’t know how to feel,” Moore told PEOPLE after the screening. “It was weird to watch it, but I’m so glad we got to watch it together. It’s nice to know that some piece of the puzzle.”

Clues included Kevin having a broken leg and Rebecca wearing a Steeler’s jersey.

Jack’s big reveal comes after endless theorizing, hair-pulling and gnashing of teeth since it was revealed he is dead in episode 5, “The Game Plan.”

Go to People.com and EW.com for exclusive access to the This Is Us season 2 red carpet premiere party – with all the scoop from your favorite cast members. Then, join our editors as they bring you expert insight and can’t-miss social buzz during the premiere episode of the hit NBC drama.

Clues were doled out, characters — including Jack’s daughter Kate — assigned blame to themselves, and still very little could prepare fans for the inevitable, “heart-wrenching” discovery.

Ventimiglia’s costars, who have shed tears while watching episodes along with fans, have had plenty to say about his character’s eventual demise — even if they weren’t always able to give up key details for fear of spoiling the twist-heavy series.

I think Jack died the way that he lived, by always trying to do the right thing,” said Sterling K. Brown, who plays son Randall. “His death is in fitting with the type of father and the husband that he always tried to be, even when he fell short of the mark.”

Ventimiglia himself asked viewers to focus on Jack’s life, saying, “I would urge people to … just accept that Jack has limited time, and know that every moment he has with his kids, with his wife, is going to be the most important thing to him.”

Health Benefits Of Ashwagandha Essential Oil: Ayurvedic Medicine Explained

by Nate M @ Maple Holistics

Ashwagandha essential oil shares many of the same properties as the Ginseng root, which is why it is often referred to as Indian Ginseng. It is a potent natural antioxidant and can be used to increase your body’s natural immunity to infections and diseases - especially helpful during those cold winters, as well as being able to treat a number of other health related issues.

Pitbull Lends Private Plane to Rescue Cancer Patients Stranded in Hurricane-Ravaged Puerto Rico

Pitbull Lends Private Plane to Rescue Cancer Patients Stranded in Hurricane-Ravaged Puerto Rico

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Pitbull is lending a hand to those in desperate need.

The Miami-based rapper, 36, sent a private jet to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico so that cancer patients could receive treatment within the United States.

Puerto Rican Congresswoman Jenniffer Gonzalez thanked the singer in a Spanish-language tweet on Tuesday, writing, “Thank you @pitbull for lending your private plane to move cancer patients from PR to USA so that they can get chemo.”

In a statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday, the rapper, whose real name is Armando Christian Perez, said, “Thank God we’re blessed to help. Just doing my part.”

Several stars have been raising money and giving back to people stranded in the island after Hurricane Maria left them without running water and electricity.

Vietnam war veteran, Miguel Olivera, told CNN Tuesday that he was down to his last vial of insulin, which was in danger of spoiling in his refrigerator.

When asked how the hurricane compares to the Vietnam War, the 75-year-old responded, “The hurricane is worse.”

Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony led efforts in providing relief to those in Puerto Rico.

“What’s on my mind is what’s going on in Puerto Rico. The devastation is beyond belief,” Lopez said in an Instagram post backstage from her Las Vegas residency show. “Me and my cousin still haven’t been able to hear from our families over there.”

“What’s foremost on my mind and many others is trying to figure out the best way to help,” she added. “Today, Puerto Rico needs our help. I urge you to support and donate to the efforts of the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Areizaga. Together we can help rebuild our island, and the Caribbean.”

What to Wear to a Winter Evening Wedding

by Alison Gary @ Wardrobe Oxygen

Love your blog and always turn to it when looking for advice. I’m a young 48, 14/16, busty, and fun woman who is STRIKING OUT looking for a cocktail/wedding guest dress for this fall. I’m attending a wedding in early November. Saturday evening, cocktail attire. I want to wear something fun, fancy, and flattering. Tired, so tired, of lace sheath dresses. Went shopping and all I found were – you guess it – lace sheath dresses or matronly chiffon dresses with poncho-like sheer overlays. I don’t understand why retailers, especially department stores, think women of a certain age or size want to dress like grandmothers. Even the grandmothers I know don’t want to dress like that! Luckily, many online retailers have bigger selections and a better outlook on the women of America and I found some fun, fancy, and flattering winter evening cocktail dresses that would be great for an evening wedding and even for dressy events coming up for the holidays. ELOQUII ELOQUII starts at size 14; I’m a 14/16 and find their 14s work for me about half the time. The other half, they would if I were a few inches taller. While their marketing may make you […]

What I Wore: On the Beach

by Alison Gary @ Wardrobe Oxygen

Greetings from Santa Barbara! If you’re following me on Instagram you know I’m in California for a blogging conference as the guest of the beauty company L’Occitaine. It’s such a beautiful part of the country, I’ve never been here before. In fact, every other time I’ve been in California it’s been for short trips, less than 48 hours, and most of that time was spent in hotels, conference rooms, and studios. So I was PSYCHED to see on the conference agenda they were having a beach party! Dress: c/o Soma Intimates (old; see other dresses from Soma) | Earrings: Amazon | Cuff: Had forever (similar) | Shoes: Birkenstocks | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban The dress code just said “wear your flip flops.” Well, I don’t own flip flops, but I do have a couple pairs of Birks and chose to wear my silver metallic pair. Knowing we’d be at the beach, I wanted something that would repel sand, handle being knotted to dip my toes in the surf, and be comfortable. Soma Intimates sent me this dress last year and it’s only been on the blog once but been worn dozens of times. It’s a silky jersey that’s light enough to have […]

Beyoncé Cheers Up Lady Gaga with Sweet Gifts as the Singer Struggles with a Bad 'Pain Day'

Beyoncé Cheers Up Lady Gaga with Sweet Gifts as the Singer Struggles with a Bad 'Pain Day'

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Beyoncé showed why she is the Queen, showering Lady Gaga in gifts to let her fellow singer know she’s loved amid her fibromyalgia battle.

The “Sorry” singer, 36, gifted Gaga, 31, an Ivy Park sweatshirt and a flowers, which the latter shared in two separate posts on Instagram.

“Not having a good pain day,” Gaga wrote in the caption. “Thank you honey B for sending me this comfy sweatshirt. Keeps me warm outside in a hammock so I can be w the trees, and the sky, and the sun and take deep breaths. Feel so lucky to have so much love.”

In a second post, Gaga shared a photo of red roses along with a card. “Thank you so much honey B,” the singer wrote. “Miss you. this was so kind. If I hadn’t seen your videos on TV at grandmas house after I got dropped from def jam records, I would have given up. You inspire us all. The dream you embody kept me going.”

Gaga announced in mid-September that she would be postponing the European leg of her Joanne world tour citing severe physical pain.

RELATED VIDEO: Lady Gaga Postpones the European Leg of World Tour: ‘I Have to Be with My Doctors Right Now’

“I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles,” Gaga wrote on Twitter. “It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out.

“As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference,” the singer continued.

“I use the word ‘suffer’ not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring,” Gaga added. “If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth.

In her new Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two, the pop star gives an inside look to her chronic pain, being forced to work through the pain on several occasions.

“Do I look pathetic?” she asks in one scene, putting her hands over her face to cover her tears. “I’m so embarrassed.”

What I Wore: Not for Sale

by Alison Gary @ Wardrobe Oxygen

Nothing in this outfit is for sale. Nothing is currently available in stores, and most pieces are over two years old. Not only that, this is the end of summer and stores and full of booties and sweaters, not sundresses and sandals. So finding “similar” pieces is near impossible.  But I’m sharing this outfit because these pieces are several years old. Because they are good buys, and proof that you don’t have to spend a lot or purchase new each season to be well dressed and appropriately dressed for any occasion. This dress is from cabi. It’s an awesome stretchy jersey that drapes nicely, doesn’t cling, and is thick enough to hide things like VPL. At cabi Scoop they had a warehouse full of previous season clothing for sale at a steep discount. I didn’t try it on, but knew the brand well enough to guess at my size. It’s been a favorite this summer, I dress it up with wedge sandals and gold jewelry, but also wear it for running errands with some sandals or my shelltops. The quality matters; I’ve bought similar concept dresses from discount and big box retailers and have to retire them after a season. […]

Recent Retail Hits and Misses: Denim Edition

by Alison Gary @ Wardrobe Oxygen

Fall is back to school… and back to jeans! I have a few pairs that still work from last year, but you curvy girls know the most beloved denim often ends up being the most worn out and eventually unwearable denim. I was looking for some replacements, and some styles to update my wardrobe for fall. And to be honest, a few I ordered just so I could try them out and see if all the hype was worth it.  For reference, I am 5’3″, curvy, usually wear a 14, 14W, or 16P in jeans.  Below what I’ve tried, and whether they are a hit or miss.   Good American High Waist Good Legs Crop Skinny Jeans – 14 Good American is the denim brand by Khloe Kardashian that is getting rave reviews for fitting and flattering a variety of body sizes and types. Reviews say the jeans run long, so I decided to try a crop style so they wouldn’t be dragging on the ground and hopefully normal length on me.  These are very skinny below the knee, so skinny I could hardly get them up.  Reviews said they ran large so I went with a 14 while I […]

Joanna Gaines Thanks Fans Since Fixer Upper Final Season Announcement: 'We Really Have Saved the Best For Last'

Joanna Gaines Thanks Fans Since Fixer Upper Final Season Announcement: 'We Really Have Saved the Best For Last'

by Alexia Fernandez @ PEOPLE.com

Joanna Gaines is thanking Fixer Upper fans after news broke that the upcoming fifth season of the hit HGTV show would be the last one.

The Fixer Upper host, 39, shared a photo of herself and her husband, Chip Gaines, on Instagram Tuesday, a few hours after their final season announcement was made.

“Thank you all for watching, caring and cheering us on these past few years. We are overwhelmed by your support and your kindness. You have become a part of our story forever,” she wrote in the caption. “Season 5 of Fixer Upper is scheduled to start airing in November and we really have saved the best for last!0”

The couple revealed the news on their blog Tuesday, which came as a shock to viewers who have followed them on their journey from a small-town construction and decorating duo in Waco, Texas, to international celebrities.

“It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season 5 of Fixer Upper will be our last,” they wrote on their blog. “While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with. Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen. How bittersweet to say goodbye to the very thing that introduced us all in the first place.”

Since the pilot aired in May 2013, Fixer Upper has become one of the highest-rated shows in the network’s history. But being on TV is just one part of Chip and Jo’s home improvement empire.

Watch: Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines on How They Fell In Love

The couple’s growing portfolio of successful businesses includes retail compound Magnolia Market at the Silos (which draws up to 40,000 visitors every week); paint, rug, wallpaper and furniture lines; a quarterly magazine; a real estate company; a luxury vacation rental; a soon-to-open restaurant and a New York Times bestselling book, with a second, Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff, due out Oct. 17.

And if their fame and fortune suddenly came to a halt, well, they’d be okay with that too. “We’ve got everything that our hearts desire,” Chip said. “I don’t see how we could be happier.”

And the couple never wanted their children Drake, 12, Ella, 10, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7, to grow up in the spotlight.

“They’re so young, and we want to give them the chance to have a normal childhood,” said Joanna, 39. “Family is the most important thing in the world.”

For more on Chip and Joanna, including an excerpt from Chip’s upcoming book Capital Gaines, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE on newsstands Friday.
