Style // March 4, 2015We’ve all got big dreams, but I’m guessing we all have rough days or weeks, too, where we’re just not feeling it. For me, those are the days when I take the extra time to really look the part. As soon as I put on that shade of red lipstick or that gorgeous statement necklace, I get the little boost of external confidence that reminds me…
Beauty // February 3, 2015I’m one of those women who will empty out her wallet for a really good beauty product. I get caught up in the fancy packaging and the “new and improved” labels and end up with a medicine cabinet full of overpriced potions, all guaranteed to keep me cute. While I have my beauty staples, I do enjoy trying new products. My go-to trick used to be…
Beauty // January 12, 2015This post originally appeared on CurlzInTheCity.com.The other day, I was taking part in my normal day-to-day beauty rituals. You know, shower, apply makeup, do hair…etc. As I was doing so, I realized that I have a few beauty shortcuts that I picked up over the years that save me time, money and sometimes my sanity. So I thought I’d share a few with all of you.…
Beauty // December 1, 2014  It’s the most wonderful time of the year; it’s time to break out the Uggs, the peppermint mocha’s, and the, um… dry, itchy skin?

Fashion // October 13, 2014 Autumn is my favorite season as a fashion designer and stylist for two reasons. For starters, it's not that hot on the West Coast and not too cold yet for you East Coasters. Second, you can wear a mix of casual summer pieces and winter styles and not look awkward. Running my own clothing line Michael Ferrera Custom Clothing means that I must stay on…

Hair Care // September 2, 2014This article was originally published on CurlzandtheCity.com.  Every now and again, we hard-working city girls need a vacation. So two months ago I packed my bags, turned off my work phone, grabbed my passport and headed to Morocco for two glorious weeks. I rode camels across the golden sands of the Sahara Desert. I got lost in towns with streets only wide enough for people…
Beauty // August 18, 2014We’ve ALL done it - gone a little long in between brow waxes and now our brows resemble something like a caterpillar. We can’t hit the streets with overgrown eyebrows, so we must take our metamorphosis into our own hands. We reach for our handy, dandy tweezers and pluck any and everything that’s growing out of our foreheads. ANY and EVERYTHING. Five minutes later, as opposed…

Fashion // June 16, 2014As a personal stylist, clients often ask me what my budget is for updating my wardrobe. Honestly, not much. And I don’t shop for myself very often. Why? Because I have a closet full of clothes I love. I wear everything in my closet and am constantly clearing it out as I find pieces that have either lived a good life or just aren’t me anymore.As…
Beauty // June 2, 2014As someone who deals with nail polish daily as the editor of Nails Magazine, it takes a lot for a lacquer to impress me. But when in need of a quick nail pick me up, I am always open to trying new nail products. I decided to polish my nails mid-week with the chrome-like Charismatic color from Poshinality. I was instantly impressed with the application of…
