Live in Color: Monling Lee

        PHOTOs BY KATE WARREN


Meet Monling Lee. This woman inspires me simply from the photos that she posts on her Instagram. Her keen eye for color and structure is unmatched, which would explain why she is an architect. She is literally the most talented at color blocking clothing. I can only compare her to J.Crew's style of color blocking and even then, she has her own lane. Enjoy some photos of the Washington, DC resident and be sure to follow her on Instagram @Monlinglee for a daily dose of inspiration!

The World Needs More Airheads


I know nearly all of you have eaten or tasted an Airhead before. Airheads are a part of a child's right of passage. Okay, maybe not, but you get what I mean. I hope. Anyways, I've eaten airheads plenty of times, as a matter of fact as I type this post, I'm eating some. To this day, airheads represent a sense of nostalgia for me and as a brand, it has remained solid over the years. People just love airheads! We all have had our own "airhead" moments and personally, I've had plenty. They make for great comedic material. I'm laughing just thinking about it to be honest. I know you're wondering why I'm saying all of this, right? 

On Feb 24th, Airheads Candy launched “The World Needs More Airheads” – the first-ever mass marketing campaign for the long loved candy company – highlighting and celebrating the real life mishaps that make us laugh. Airheads Candy is extending the call to fans to share their own unpredictably awesome moments of pure airheadedness for the chance to be featured in future advertising.   

To kick off the campaign, Airheads Candy has scoured the online universe and partnered with the funniest Vine stars to capture their airhead moments for use in the initial commercial spots.  Fans who want to get famous and be included in future advertising are being asked to submit a video of their own little oops, a hilarious screw-up or an amazingly airheaded idea on the campaign Tumblr page. All videos submitted that capture the joys of true airheadedness will also be featured on the site. The top three videos will be used in upcoming TV commercials! For more information about Airheads, click HERE.

How to enter:

  1. Create or upload an Instagram Video, Vine, or YouTube video of your airhead moment.
  2. Hashtag with #AirheadsNeeded
  3.  Visit Airheads Tumblr and upload your video to enter to win: http://goo.gl/kYKoB1

Videos can either be pre-captured gems that have yet to be shared with the world or newly created greatness. The top three will be selected and used in upcoming TV commercials with others featured in mobile and online advertising beginning in June.

beauty fix: The Spring Red Lip


If I can count on anything, it's a red lip. A red lip automatically brings life to your face and what's more awesome is that makeup brands are coming up with more shades of the color than ever. There is a shade out there for everyone, if that isn't a beauty convenience, I don't know what else is. There is no reason you shouldn't own a red lipstick, gloss or pencil.

Though the red lip can never get old, it doesn't hurt to update it a tad bit. This runway beauty look for India fashion week had me head over heels from the start. The beautiful yet somehow subtle mix of orange, red and magenta is captivating on a bare face.


  For this look, you'll need: 


This will look different on everyone, so it's important to blend the colors to your liking using more or less of each color.
