Music Artist: Andy Grammer

Monday, April 16, 2012 | COLUMN: Pur Teen

Andy Grammer is an artist who not only has inspiring music but has an inspiring story as well. He started out by playing on the streets of L.A, willing to play for anyone who would listen. I love the sound Andy Grammer has but I also love the message his lyrics send. Grammer says, “My favorite thing is to pop up from a birds-eye view. It may be a breakup, it may be a relationship, it may be what we’re doing on this planet here. I like to be far enough away to see the whole scope of what’s occurring.” While his music is very upbeat, Grammer says, “I’m not intentionally trying to be positive. I’m trying to be real.” His music has a very laid back vibe to it with a more rocker edge. As Grammer himself would describe, “For me it’s always been about a mix of hip-hop, acoustic singer/songwriters and piano rock.”

A Short History on the High Heel

Shoe_h425 Perhaps it is because I’m under five feet tall, but I absolutely love a good pair of heels! For high heeled shoes and me, it was love at first fit, and I’ve been rocking pumps, peep toes, sling backs, boots and platforms of all styles and heights since my teenage years.  Though high heels are practically my running shoes, not everybody likes to wear them, and I understand why. The position of the foot and the added height in these sexy shoes can hinder speed and balance. This made me wonder “who invented these dangerously beautiful things?” I looked into this, and now you can learn and retell a brief history of the high heeled shoe, making you sound super smart the next time you’re out and about with friends.

Staying Sun Smart and Radiant

Monday, June 22, 2009 | COLUMNS: Pur Teen, Tips & How-Tos, application tips

Shutterstock_24395872 This past weekend marked the official start of summer. For me, this time of year always brings to mind happy memories of weeks spent at my grandparents’ beach condo. But the more I read about the dangers of UV rays and the shortcomings of generic sunscreens, the more I look back on past summers in shock. Growing up, sunscreen was reserved for two things: the beach and the pool. My parents bought it at the drugstore when it went on sale just before Memorial Day and kept it in a beach bag with all our towels and pool passes. Bottles were replaced only when they were completely empty, and since they only saw the light of day (no pun intended) during the summer months, it wasn’t uncommon for a bottle of Valu Block 30 to complete a full presidential term before retiring. (The idea that sunscreen had any sort of a shelf life eluded us.)
