Okay, this one’s about anxiety. I KNOW this is a really common feeling, but…how much life experience do I have to collect before I can stop waiting for the other shoe to drop when something good happens to me?! I’d do anything to known the secret to turning that particularly crazy off in my head.
I have found some of my most exhilarating moments of self-expression and self-knowledge while writing songs and singing. That’s my favorite creative outlet. I’ve always known that music is my thing but I was a little shy about doing something that is so public. You can’t practice singing without anyone hearing you! And living in an apartment you KNOW the next-door neighbor is enjoying the listening session! But I got over it and now, to some degree, music keeps me sane. There’s no way to know exactly what the perfect outlet is for you to express yourself unless you try a whole bunch of things. Eventually something will click. Maybe you’re the next Annie Liebowitz or Sarah Silverman? Who knows? You won’t until you try, fail, try again, and finally hit on what makes you feel most like YOU. If it feels good, go with it!
During the summer I love to embrace my natural wavy hair. Why torture myself in the heat by pointing a blazing hot dryer at myself? I add Moroccan Oil Curl cream to my hair when it’s wet to add definition, tone down frizz and add shine. It’s the best way to get that beach wavy hair and still be able to run my fingers through it!

Lizze Miller’s interview with plus size model Danielle van Grondelle
This Beach Bum loves her fun in the sun, but I also know that too much of anything is usually not good. But I’m a Cali girl and will probably never get the idea that sexy beauty includes a tan out of my head, but how can you blame me? It’s where I’m from! I’ve learned that it’s ALL about balance; some sun does give you that healthy glow and is even good for your body as it gives you much-needed vitamin D. But on the other hand, you don’t want to turn into a “Tanorexic” and overdo it, your skin will NOT be very happy with you! And burns= sun damage! So how does a California girl living in New York keep her California glow and stay healthy at the same time? I love using JERGENS NATURAL GLOW LOTION almost every day. It is definitely a staple in my life. I get that golden glow I’m looking for without worrying about skin damage.
