February 27, 2012 Menthol. Sodium methyl cocoyl taurate. Titanium dioxide. Trideceth-9.  No, this is not a list of ingredients for a home-made bomb. They are the listed ingredients of a name brand, over-the-counter face wash. #Truestory.  Facial cleansing products these days have a somewhat intimidating range of chemicals in them that we gleefully lather on our face daily. This is why, when it comes to beauty products, I am a…
February 13, 2012We picked our favorite celeb hairstyles for spring. Here's who made the list: Kelly Rowland was working her new 'do at the Essences 'Black Women in Music" event. This style is huge and dramatic but it doesn't overpower her. She uses big accessories and bright colors to balance the look. Ms. Rowland makes the riot of curls look soft and flirty and I love the effect.~SerenaI love love…
January 30, 2012 I grew up with an MTV that played music videos and little else, an E! before the Kardashians, a Nick at Nite that showed shows in black and white, and the Style Channel when it actually broadcasted live fashion shows. Oh, how the times have changed!For those of you like me who miss the glory days of fashion television (and television in general), it’s finally time to get…
January 30, 2012I think it’s time to acknowledge that colored jeans have gone past being a trend and have made their way into fashion as a closet staple. You see a new pair popping up daily; from celebs on the red carpet, to TV shows, to just your average Jane on the street. They are a great way to add a bold color to an outfit and are essential to…
January 30, 2012What’s better than going to an event and meeting a man who looks good… and dresses even better? Not much. There is a lot to be said for a man who can dress himself. And I’m not just talking about being able to match your J’s to your tee (no offense, sneakerheads). I’m talking about those dapper Made Men out there that know how to catch a Made…
January 3, 2012 OK folks, I don't know about you but when I look in the mirror and see my pearly whites, I can't help but think they could be a bit pearlier.  The foods we eat and drinks we drink can discolor them over time, and the idea of jazzing up my smile has appealed to me for a while.  When Crest WhiteStrips hit the market several years ago,…

December 19, 2011 If you’re anything like me, you haven’t stopped watching Bridesmaids since you bought the DVD (the day it came out).  In between fits of laughter, you might have noticed that Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids’ Helen Harris III) makes great style choices. Allow this funny lady to influence your outfits for those upcoming Christmas parties. This fun and girly ensemble would run you over $2,000, which is no laughing…
December 19, 2011To follow or not to follow, that is the question if we’re talking about fashion trends. Let’s begin with a little quiz:Walking down the street, you catch a glimpse of an impeccably-styled girl, donning every one of the season’s hottest trends.  She looks effortless, chic, as if she’s been plucked from the pages of some uber-hip editorial.  Glancing down at your own sorry excuse for an outfit, you…
December 5, 2011From the blog "From Sugar With Style"Now that Thanksgiving is officially over I can dive head first into Christmas  and all of the preparation and activities that come with the season. For those that know me it’s no surprise that my holiday shopping is just about finished and my home is already decorated. I love this time of year and I like to indulge in everything is has…
December 5, 2011 The celebs have all broken out their winter best. And here are our faves!    Serena Watson, Made Woman Mag Editor-In-Chief My pick is Kate Beckinsale in a dress from Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 collection. She shows off her winter white--and those amazing legs--in a style that is sweet but fun. The lace adds a touch of elegance while long hair in soft waves keeps it sexy.…
November 22, 2011 It’s the most wonderful time of the year — especially if you love shopping. Yes, Thanksgiving is great, but Black Friday has become a holiday all its own. Known as the biggest shopping day of the year, the last Friday in November marks the official beginning of the holiday season and the hunt for the perfect holiday gifts. As a faithful Black Friday shopper I can tell…
November 22, 2011 Coats should be a staple of your fall wardrobe. You need them to keep warm against the brisk chill in the air and they can also make or break an outfit. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen a great outfit covered up by an outdated jacket, or one that is horribly mismatched. Here are some ideas to get you through this crisp season…
November 8, 2011 Blackberry? Check. Lipstick? Check. Fab business cards? Check. Cash? Check. Now where are you going to put it all? Clothes aren’t the only items that change season to season. Remember to mix up and change out your accessories to stay on top of your fashion game. After all, every Made Woman needs a bag of tricks.   1. Diane von Furstenberg via shopbop.com.

Beauty // November 8, 2011 Winter has finally decided to arrive in LA (this week at least) and she brings with her much excitement. Can you say “holiday parties??” But with the change in weather comes a much needed change in your stock of beauty supplies. Yes, it's time to retire your summer suntan lotion and stock up on goodies that will keep you looking fresh and fabulous this holiday…
