Christian Louboutin Homme Ask Chrissy

Ask Chrissy
Photo: Courtesy of Chrissy TeigenThis month, Chrissy Teigen is ELLE.com s Guest Blogger. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and culinary school grad is also a serious foodie: In our October issue (starring Lady Gaga and available on newsstands now), Teigen shared her ultimate date-night dinner (date night being with now-husband John Legend,Christian Louboutin Homme, natch). Throughout the month, she s shown us how to make delectably simple meals, and shared her fall fashion finds. She s also been fielding questions from our readers and today,Louboutin Pas Cher, she s picked a handful to respond to with her signature sass and devil-may-care attitude.Chrissy, I can’t seem to get comfortable wearing navy slacks with a brown shoes and brown belt. But I also don’t like the way navy slacks look when paired with black. So I’ve been forced to cut navy slacks completely out of my wardrobe and that seems wasteful. Almost like a missed opportunity. So I ask you: If John never wore navy slacks, would you still love him? Should I be alright with navy and black? Or should I just bite the bullet and go navy/brown and deal with the anxiety that it causes until it eventual Chaussure Louboutin ly fades? Chip @19jms First of all, I love your perfect balance between passion and complete confusion here. I am not one to adhere to silly clothing rules. I love mixing metals, wearing a brown bag with black shoes,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, whatever. But for some reason, when I close my eyes and think of a man in navy with a black belt, I just shudder. My mind immediately goes to “security guard” which makes me go to “spring 2005″ which makes me go to “indecent exposure” which makes me go to places I would rather not revisit. Navy needs brown. Not just any brown. That beautiful toasted marshmallow brown. Oh baby. Do the brown. (That’s what she said.) 1. If you were on death row,Louboutin Pas Cher, what would your last meal be?2. What’s your favorite fall meal?3. What’s your favorite kind of wine? Amanda, Vancouver, Canada1. My mom’s scalloped potatoes with ham and bacon. It is just heaven. The worst part is that she has no recipe, and I cannot fo Christian Louboutin Homme r the life of me keep up fast enough while she makes it to write it down. It’s so, so easy. I think she is holding off on giving me an exact recipe so she can always feel the glory after making it.2. My favorite fall meal has to be a simple roasted chicken. Ina Garten does a fabulous one. There is just something about roasting your own chicken and vegeta Louboutin Prix bles that screams fall and “home” to me. I also enjoy stuffing chunks of herb-flavored butter underneath the skin. It looks quite morbid. Afte Christian Louboutin r a few hours of baking and eating,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, you also get to enjoy the emotion of,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, “I could have bought this at the grocery store hot-foods section for six dollars,Louboutin Homme, but I am quite proud of myself.” Joy!3. I have no favorite wine. I just like wine. All wine.Chrissy! I love your humor and that you love food so much. And because you are so passionate about food, I m wondering: What are your all-time favorite restaurants in NYC? ElaineOh,Christian Louboutin Homme,Louboutin Prix, man. As for favorite restaurants in New York,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, this is a question I get a lot. There are just so many fantastic restaurants. Certain restaurants I love one particular dish and only go there for that dish. For casual, Frank in the East Village definitely sticks out in my mind. I live in the East Village so my heart is always there, but they just have such wonderfully homey Italian food. If I’m in town,Louboutin Homme, you can almost always catch me there on Lasagne Verdi Bolognese Thursdays, alone in the corner, reading a magazine (ELLE, duh). But I have recently become obsessed with the spaghetti and meatballs. Wow.Cafe Cluny in the West Village has one of my favorite salads in the city,Chaussure Louboutin, a frisee salad with a poached egg and lardons (a.k.a.,Chaussure Louboutin, fancy bacon). I also frequent Il Buco on Bond Street purely for their kale Caesar salad with enormous homemade garlic croutons. I also get the whole broiled shrimp. Peel and dip it into the tiny bowl of salt. I’m an animal. Also M Christian Louboutin Chaussures omofuku’s chilled spicy noodles will have your mouth Louboutin Pas Cher on fire and yet you just can’t stop spinach, sausage, candied cashews, noodles,Louboutin Prix, oh lord. And, for fancy, there is nothing quite like a tasting menu at Le Bernardin. We go there for every special occasion, plus Eric Ripert is always there and he is just a dream human.Have you heard of the Myers-Briggs personality test? If so, what’s your type? Jen Kim My friend recently sent me a link to that test. I took it, and have already forgotten what I am. So I am whatever personality type forgets things immediately after doing them.

This book isn’t just about “eating healthy.” This is understanding the entire engine that drives feminine functionality. At first I thought the title was more of a catch phrase. Now, having read the book, I really get that there is a “code” that is very much like an operating system, one that we can influence and regulate and work with to become our best selves. What an eye-opener. I’m eating kale. I’m using aloe vera on my face. Super drop dead simple things to incorporate. It’s all working. The changes the author promises offer real results. I’m shocked – and I wasn’t even a skeptic, but so much of the nutrition informatio Chaussure Louboutin n out there is conflicting or really complex to execute. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, improve your libido, trying to get pregnant, or dealing with hormonal changes, no matter the age, this information should be required reading for every woman to understand her body and to help her become her best Self. It is also the perfect time to be having these conversations. As more and more women are deciding whether or not to “lean in” it is becoming evermore important to identify with our bodies so that we are clear about the choices we make. Incredibly important information and perfect timing. This is the beginning of a movement that shifts the focus from trying to compete with men, to owning ourselves as whole women. I’d buy one for myself, my mom, my grandmother, my daughters, my sisters…. you get the picture. I think this is the tip of the iceberg on this topic. This will be a long term reference manual and a practical “doable” blueprint for many lifestyle changes for me.34 of 36 people found the following review helpful.Great information, too much self promotionBy DeenaI think Woman Code is a fantastic book for all women to read, especially those in their 20s, 30s and 40s. Vitti does a great job of explaining how our bodies are supposed to function,Christian Louboutin Homme, the interplay between hormones and her message is extremely empowering. The idea that our hormone function is basically a system and we can knock over the dominoes, but we can also get it realigned and back into balance. Hormones have always been this black box and something that people feel are a puzzle and untouchable, but Woman Code gives you the tools to unlock it and figure it out. I also love the “every meal, every day” concept. It’s a life-long effort and it takes real attention and work to make it happen, but it is possible. There just aren’t any quick fixes. All good stuff! The reason I don’t give this book 5 starts (and I wavered between 3 or 4) is because some of it reads like a blog post/promotional material. As soon as you pick up the book, you know that Vitti runs a successful business in NYC. You’re likely to check out her website and know that she has distance products as well for those who are not local to NYC. If you’re at all interested in her products, you’ll know where to go, but she seems to chime in constantly about her clients, her business,Louboutin Pas Cher, her facebook page, where you can find more, etc etc. In my view, the beauty of writing a book is offering a low-cost product and getting information out to the masses. Undoubtedly, those who want more support know where to go, but when I buy a book I don’t want it to be blatant promotional material for a practice. That’s the aspect that feels a bit amateur to me here. But, overall, it’s a great tool and something all women should read, whether or not they have known hormonal imbalance.17 of 19 people found the following review helpful.TOO much promotion but definitely some good informationBy mangogirlThere are some good points in the book and it is definitely worth a read for every woman. However i have to agree with other reviews that there is far too much promotion. It would be fine if it were just a paragraph at the end of the book, so that people have the option to take things further and pay for this if they so wish. But unfortunately it gets pretty irritating as there’s probably a whole page dedicated to this in each chapter if not more.I would’ve liked a bit more detail into the nutritional areas. It’s great to have a chart of which foods will be helpful for different parts of your cycle, however it would have been interesting to see specifically why these foods are good. It may just be me with my interest in nutrition, and maybe this would be too much info for some, maybe a little overwhelming. However in my experience if you understand the details of how food works and why it is good for you, you’re much more likely to stick to eating it and enjoy it as well.It’s a shame i feel if you’re paying for a book it should have gone into a little more depth in each area. She could easily have done this if she scrapped the pages of constant promotion throughout. Too much money for what you get unfortunately.I admire Alisa’s intentions and knowledge, but the book could definitely be improved to be better value for money.See all 53 customer reviews…

Christian Louboutin Homme she worked with a food-handout program for the homeless in Golden Gate Park. In her early twenties

How to Love Your Work
Thirty-three years ago, Paul Ekman’s newborn daughter,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, Eve pink, naked, not one hour old did something wonderful: She flashed her dad an undeniably authentic smile,Chaussure Louboutin, the kind the baby books say infants can t make until they re weeks old. Now 79, he wishes he ha Louboutin Homme d time to pore over the movies he shot of his girl every day for the first month of her life. What a joy that would be in my dotage, he says,Christian Louboutin Homme, wistfully. And because Ekman is a renowned scholar of human emotion, who proved through the analysis of facial expressions that our core emotions are universal his motivation is as much work as fatherly affection: He d love to try to upend the conventional wisdom about the slow rate at which humans are thought to develop. But he has a full plate already, collaborating,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, for instance, with the Dalai Lama on investigations Christian Louboutin Pas Cher into meditation and emotional equilibrium and he s not getting any younger.One consolation, though: Eve is carrying on his work about emotion with her own practical, timely twist. While Paul Ekman has illuminated the contours of inner life, Eve, who has a wide and warm face much like her dad s and a brown shag tipped blond from a long-forgotten bleach job, wants to teach us how to think and feel better. She studies how to maintain and develop empathy at work, and she s developed a program, Developing and Reconnecting to Empathy and Meaning DREAM, for short to help enrich workers lives. She s not following in my footsteps, says her undeniably proud father, but standing on my shoulders to see and do Christian Louboutin things I couldn t. That s beyond a parent s dream. She s remarkable. For some time now, enlightened grammar Christian Louboutin Chaussures and secondary schools have been coaching children to cultivate emotional resilience, in response to reams of data showing that strong social and emotional skills are important predictors of well-being and success. Eve s field, called adult emotional skills training,Louboutin Prix, is helping grown-ups play catch-up in the place where they spend much of their time: the office.Occupational burnout the dulled mental state caused by prolonged work stress and characterized by low self-efficacy (aka lack of accomplishment), detachment,Chaussure Louboutin, and emotional exhaustion is the cornerstone of Eve Ekman s broadranging research. In a study she conducted last summer with guards at a juvenile jail in San Mateo,Christian Louboutin Homme, California, participants learned over two daylong sessions how to identify their own emotional flash points and to read other peoples emotions more accurately (using, for the latter,Louboutin Prix, her father s facial-expression recognition techniques). An academic paper on the prison study is in the works, but before the training was even finished, the guards pronounced it the most profoundly useful professional development training they d ever received. The [guards] feel better about what they do,Louboutin Homme, better about themselves and that translates to how they deal with the youth, says Roy Brasil, the deputy chief of the juvenile jail. They re more empathetic, better adjusted. Ekman is no ivory-tower academic. Her affable manner and unself-conscious playfulness notwithstanding, she is ineluctably drawn to human suffering. I always wanted to help people on the front lines, she says matter-of-factly. As a punk-rock teen (she can be seen in this multiply pierced phase Louboutin Pas Cher expertly demonstrating the archetypal facial expressions of fear, contempt, joy in her dad s riveting 2003 book, Emotions Revealed),Louboutin Pas Cher, she worked with a food-handout program for the homeless in Golden Gate Park. In her early twenties, she helped drug-addicted sex workers in the gritty Mission neighborhood. And for the past six years, she has counseled bottomed-out alcoholic Christian Louboutin Homme s,Louboutin Homme, rape victims, and gunshot survivors and their families as a social worker in the emergency room of San Francisco General Hospital. I wish there were a less self-sacrificial view of doing good, because it actually feels good, she says. Brain biology shows we re hardwired for empathy : Our innate abilities to nurture and protect are central to our species survival. And, she adds,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, toggling fast as she often does between science and Eastern philosophy,Louboutin Pas Cher, Buddhists say that our true nature is caring, and whatever obscures that nature is dust on the gold. That resonates with me. Brasil is an unlikely convert to Ekman s way of thinking. If you asked me 40 years ago,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, I never would have thought that a young PhD candidate from Berkeley could teach me anything. I would have said, You must be smoking something. I m a tough police officer. Those Berkeley do-gooders they want to solve every problem with dialogue. He pauses to laugh with wonder. If you ve been in the trenches, fighting for your life, you think no amount of dialogue is going to help. But the irony is, after Eve showed up, what I m feeling is a feeling of goodness: There s hope for life; go smell the flowers; it doesn t have to be a fight all the time. So what are Ekman s strategies for getting and staying on the sunnier side of work, where there s hope and can it really be? even some fresh flowers to sniff?

October Movie Reviews
After a summer of oddly disappointing action blockbusters, the fall season has arrived with the perfect antidote: three great action dramas All Is Lost,Louboutin Homme, Gravity, and Captain Phillips that give their respective A-list stars,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, Robert Redford, Sandra Bullock, and Tom Hanks,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher,Christian Louboutin Homme, the opportunity to thrill us with just how great they can be. These stories each revolve around a life-threatening catastrophe,Louboutin Prix, and they serve to remind us that you don t need a cast of thousands to create compelling drama. Redford is his movie s only cast member, playing a sailor who awakens to find his yacht taking on Louboutin Pas Cher water following a collision with a stray shipping container.

In both films, the camera stays close to the protagonists, giving us as well as them the intimate, personal experience of looking mortality squarel Christian Louboutin y in the face. With the what-would-I-do factor at a peak,Chaussure Louboutin, both movies have you in their grip the screen presence of each star holding you close from start to finish.Closely based on a real incident in 2009,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, Captain Phillips is an only slightly more populous thrill ride. As Richard Phillips, a workad Louboutin Homme ay container-ship captain taken hostage by Somali pirates, Hanks gives one of his very best and subtlest everyman performances. His captain is modest and sturdy; he s the sterling good neighbor who finds himself risking his own life to save others in this instance, his 20- Christian Louboutin Pas Cher man crew. You gradually recognize that,Louboutin Pas Cher, in ever more dangerous circumstances,Louboutin Homme,Christian Louboutin Homme, he s determined to protect every one of those men, keeping them calm and useful,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, and doing so without pretense of heroism. Hanks clearly sees the pirates not as monsters but as desperate men when he gazes at his adversary, a gaunt,Louboutin Pas Cher, clearly malnourished man who softly boasts, I m the Christian Louboutin Homme captain now,Chaussure Louboutin, and when he later realizes, with a slight but perceptible shock, that one of the pirates is just a frightened boy. You know that he hates the thought that they re as likely to be killed as anyone here. It s that kind of nuance you don t find in the usual shoot- em-up blockbuster. Complexity doesn t stir up one s bloodlust or temporarily self-righteous hatred. But besides being worth the popcorn, every one of these movies revolves around a hero who, unlike a superhero, illuminates the possibilities in us at our best.

Christian Louboutin Chaussures which means that whatever it is you want to change about yourself now is the time to change it. We know that personality changes more during your 20s than at any other time in life

How to Be in Your Twenties,Louboutin Pas Cher
We ve already bookmarked, flagged,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, and responded to portions Christian Louboutin Pas Cher of psychologist Dr. Meg Jay s book, The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter and How to Make The Most of Them Now last year s tough-love plea to America’s 50 million twentysomething kidults to stop treating their third decade like an extended adolescence. This month, Jay gave a TED talk expounding on her 30 is not the new 20 battle cry likening the direction-challenged group to airplanes just leaving LAX,Chaussure Louboutin,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, bound for somewhere west. Right a Louboutin Pas Cher fter takeoff,Chaussure Louboutin, a slight change in course is the difference between landing in Alaska or Fiji. According to Jay, twentysomethings have plenty to worry about. Lifting straigh Louboutin Prix t from her now-viral TED Talk, we bring you five of her assertions:1. You should be prepping to have life figured out by 35: We know that more than half of Americans are married or are living with or dating their future partner by 30. We know that the brain caps off its second and last growth spurt in your 20s as it re Christian Louboutin Homme wires itself for adulthood, which means that whatever it is you want to change about yourself now is the time to change it. We know that personality changes more during your 20s than at any other time in life,Louboutin Pas Cher, and we know that female fertility peaks at age 28, and things get tricky after age 35. 2. You can t make up for l Christian Louboutin ost time: When a lot has been pushed to your 30s,Louboutin Prix, there is enormous thirtysomething pressure to jump-start a career,Louboutin Prix,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, pick a city,Christian Louboutin Homme, partner up, and have two or three kids in a much shorter period of time The post-millennial midlife crisis isn’t buying a red sports car. It’s realizing you can’t have that career you now want. 3. Your friends? They re holding you back: Jay espouses that the urban tribe is overrated. Best friends are great for giving rides to the airport, but twentysomethings who huddle together with like-minded peers limit who they know, what they know,Louboutin Homme, how they think,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher,Louboutin Homme, how they speak, and where they work. That new piece of capital, that new person to date almost always comes from outside the inner circle. 4. Your future family should be a priority: Treating dating like a game of musical chairs? Well,Christian Louboutin Homme, don t. Jay agrees we should settle down later in life, but says grabbing whoever you’re living with or sleeping with when everyone on Facebook starts walking down the aisle is not progress. The best time to work on your marriage is before you have one, and that means being as intentional with love as you are with work. Picking your family is about consciously choosing who and what you want rather than just making it work or killing time with whoever happens to be choosing you. 5. You should trade the adventure trail for the straight and narrow highway: So you ve changed jobs three times, and are now moving to Guatemala to start a coffee company? Many people would call this a commendable quest toward finding your self. Jay, however, would call this an identity crisis, and recommends we twentysomethings instead work on building identity capital. [That s] something that adds value to who you are, she says. Do something that’s an investment in who you might want to be next. So now is the time for that cross-cou Christian Louboutin Chaussures ntry job, that internship, that startup you want to try. I’m not discounting twentysomething exploration here, but I am discounting exploration that’s not supposed to count, which, by the way, is not exploration. That’s procrastination.

Tabitha Simmons Interview
Oh, to be Tabitha Simmons! The former model became a top fashion stylist, married master photographer Craig McDean,Louboutin Homme,Louboutin Pas Cher, and then launched her own line of shoes to both critical acclaim and sold-out status on Net-A-Porter.We caught up with the British brunette in a breathtaking Rue de Rivoli apartment during Paris Fashion Week, where she was outfitted in a Valentino mini dress while showcasing her own collection, greeting friends with hugs and champagne flutes.Our mission: Squelch the jealous rage rising within our hearts and discuss Simmons’ (insanely cool) spring 2014 collection. Read on how to see how we did…This collection is extremely colorful. Did you do a series of heels based on friendship bracelets and ribbon belts? Exactly,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, but with a twist. These pieces came from a trip my husband and I took. He planned a surprise 10-year wedding anniversary vacation to Peru! So this grouping is almost like, “preppy stripe-shirt girl travels to the Andes.” So that’s why you see the blue and white Oxford stripes, along with the colorful embroidery. And since it was our anniversary,Chaussure Louboutin, I incorporated little hearts into the prints, too you can see them around the bordersSo you’re on a romantic getaway to an amazing location,Christian Louboutin Pas Cher, and you’re still designing in your head?

It’s pretty much from my brain.What’s the worst advice you’ve ever gotten as a designer? “Follow the trends.” That’s the worst, you should never do it! Stick to what you believe in, and hope it falls into the mood of the season,Louboutin Homme,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, but even if it doesn’t, you have to do what you do, otherwise what’s the point? There are flats on every runway this season. Tell us your rules for styling them. I’m wearing a flat today, and my rule is, when you’re wearing a flat,Christian Louboutin Chaussures, keep your bottoms short. It can be a mini dress, it can be a capri pant, just make sure you pair Christian Louboutin Pas Cher a flat with something shorter so the shapes even out. Do your friends try and steal your shoes when they come over Christian Louboutin Chaussures to your house? They’re so sneaky! Normally,Louboutin Prix, they literally come up to the studio to say “Hello,Christian Louboutin Homme,” and then they’ll sort of sneak a personal order in. So they’ll drop by the showroom, and then they’ll be like, “Oh wait, as long as I’m here, can I have an order form?”So you never believe someone when they text, ” Louboutin Prix Coming over, just want to say hi”? [Laughs] Exactly! It’s never just to say “Hello!”
