Being Bené

Y’all know I love a charitable scarf, so when Bené offered to lend the Thread gals scarves to style, I was all in. I am Bené (a play on the word benevolent) because I support educational opportunities for girls all over the world, and Bené is a line of scarves created by two best friends inspired by the spirit of young Ghanian girls and committed to providing those girls with an education. A portion of...

5 Tips for Public Speaking

[caption id="attachment_5640" align="aligncenter" width="660"] Photo by Tim Bayer[/caption] Public speaking has dropped from #1 to #5 on the list of Americans’ top fears (it now hovers just below internet safety and random shootings), but it still makes me a little nervous. I’m getting the hang of it, though, so hosting Cincinnati Wedding magazine’s second fashion show was a lot less nerve-wracking than hosting the first. I talked about fashion trends and answered questions from attendees about everything...

Photo Diary // Bourbon Street & High Style

"I really need some cheese right now. What does that mean?" -Twitter, Oct 28, 2015 Braving the drunken throngs on Bourbon Street during a seriously fun trip to NOLA for the Being Boss Vacay. Hanging out with cool lady entrepreneurs and partying in the street is a darn good time! Learning tricks of the makeup trade from BRIDEface founder Nancy Dawson after hosting a fashion show at the Cincinnati Wedding magazine Wedding Workshop. I swear I’m gonna...

Beauty // Red Lips are Easy with NYX Liquid Suede

I’ve always loved the idea of red lipstick. A bright red pout has been the signature of classy broads for the better part of the last century, but my aversion to re-applying (seriously, who has time?) meant that it just wasn’t realistic for me. I stuck to lip stains and minded my own business. But one day, when I stopped by Ulta to buy beauty products I don’t need, the crew at the counter excitedly pulled...

Style // Blue Mood

I’ve managed to amass quite the collection of leather (and pleather) pencil skirts, oversized oxford shirts, and pointy-toe flats, so it made perfect sense to wear them all together. It just feels very me, you know? Wearing a Zara vegan leather skirt, Banana Republic men’s oxford shirt, Boden flats, and DIY rhinestone cluster earrings. Speaking of earrings, come Sip 'n Shop with the Thread Cincinnati babes at Kendra Scott's new  store at brand spanking new Liberty Center...

Tried It: Smith & Cult Nail Polish

My manicure game is confusingly, disappointingly inconsistent. My nails are either long and curved like a prowling cat’s claws, or they’re a keratin graveyard of cracked and broken nubs. My solution for what is likely an easily addressed problem is not regular upkeep or professional manicures or anything that would involve personal responsibility on my part. No, my solution is to cover up the mess with a slapdash coat of polish and pray that no...

Style // Check One, Check Two

It’s not an aversion per se, but I’m not usually one to wear plaid. Sure I have my schoolgirl/Vivienne Westwood wannabe moments, but I usually stick to neutral solids thankyouverymuch. That all went out the window when I saw these wide-legged trousers in an obnoxiously large check while cruising Zara.com. My new favorite silhouette, neutral cream and navy, PLUS a dramatic print? Why yes, I think I will. Besides, who gon’ check me? SHOP IT! // ...
