Last year we wrote about a new and FANTASTIC company started by two of our Lipstick Sister members from L.A. Michel and Firouze called Reset Yourself!
This time we wanted to focus more on the hair test as this is truly the ONE thing that makes their company so different from the rest. There are a gazillion (yes, I just used that word) health coaches, dietitians, food bloggers etc... but at the end of the day ONLY this hair test will provide you with your personal blueprint:
“One size” does NOT fit all! We get that. Reset Yourself focuses on finding your Blueprint, a map of what YOUR body needs to rebuild and return to its best, most vital self. Your unique Blueprint unlocks the secrets to helping your body heal itself – examining the bio-chemical makeup that tells you what minerals and nutrients are overloading or lacking in your system.

I am so excited to be writing about Sophia Webster today! She has surely become one of my favorite designers and one of our faves for up and coming women to look out for! At only 27 years old, this shoe fanatic has already been named Emerging Footwear Designer of the Year by Condé Nast Footwear News, and one of the Top 100 People to Watch on The Times 2013 Power List. Launching her first collection for spring-summer 2013 her line is currently being stocked at retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.
She may be new to the shoe scene, but not so much to the art aspect of designing. Sophia studied at the Royal College of Art and Camberwell Art College after which she went on to train at Cordwainers College. You would think that this was her lifelong dream… Wrong. "I was always interested in art and sculpture. I didn't even know you could do a degree in shoe design until I was doing my foundation at Camberwell Art College." Sophia.
After being mentored by Nicholas Kirkwood for two years, Sophia bravely went on to develop her own shoe collection. She debuted her Spring 2013 “Welcome to the Dollhouse” which featured a life size doll box where the models were on display as in a toy store. BYOND!
Her pumps were recently featured on The Zoe Report, hailed as, “outfit altering, irresistible shoes.” They are currently produced in Brazil, where she coincidentally drew on for inspiration for fun prints, colors and playfulness of the collection.
This year we are MADLY in love with her butterfly collection as part of her SS 2014 line.
Sophia Webster truly has it all, as she recently married the man of her dreams; she is beautiful and full of style! She is an inspiration to young women, all it takes is the vision, the passion and the dedication to make it BIG! You Go Girl!

When I was 21 I followed my heart to Italy. I had met an Italian boy that summer that was like something you would read in a romance novel, because he was so perfect in every way, it felt like he had to be a made up character. This boy was from a town in Italy called Valenza. Six months after he returned to Italy from our dreamlike summer vacation, he flew me to see him and so I ended up in this little town where every store in site happened to be a jewelry store! It was like walking in Manhattan and every corner has a Starbucks! He also happened to be a jewelry designer as pretty much every person that lives in Valenza is, and this is how I learned that Valenza is the jewelry capital of Italy. Needless to say my Italian romance didn’t go past that trip, but I did return with some excellent knowledge about diamonds and my very own beautiful hart shaped diamond encrusted necklace that 18 years later still hangs from my neck.
Last month, this very handsome fellow, Timothy the General Manager from one of the most exclusives jewelry boutiques in Beverly Hills approached us to host a private event at his boutique
One of the extraordinary aspects of jewels is that like a great painting, you can imagine based on the strokes of the brush, what the artist was feeling, thinking, it can even take you there. Crafted jewels are the same, you can feel the time spent on them, their craftsmanship takes you into the minds of the designer, incredible to think that a human hand can put together something so beautiful!
“Vhernier jewels are created in a small sovereign world. Each day we can glimpse a new glow inside them. They are independent beings with a history to tell, always ready to enthrall us.
Intentionally brackets are left opened. Our imagination plays and molds its continuation.
Lines run, weave, entwine, and finally they stop. Soft and transparent colours, imparting a perfect balance to the creation, moderate the jewel. The rock, the leaf, the shell, and the inclusions of the stone, become integral to the ideas that lie beneath our creations”.
The event was glorious! Lipstick Sisters were able to wear some of the jewels and get photographed with them by
Make sure you stop by our gallery to see all the fabulous photos from that day, and if you are in the neighborhood, stop by and see Timothy and let him woo you with

I first heard about Emily Liebert through a friend on Facebook and after visiting her website www.emilyliebert.com I knew I had to meet her! She is beautiful, smart, super funny and just lovely! I'm excited for you to learn more about her in this interview.
Born and raised in New York City, Emily attended the Horace Mann School and Smith College, where she graduated with a B.A. in English Language & Literature.
After college, Emily landed her first job as an Executive Assistant at ABC News, where she helped produce television specials for Peter Jennings Reporting.
Since childhood, Emily’s had a passion for writing, so when the opportunity to become Editor-in-Chief of The WAG—a luxury lifestyle magazine covering Westchester and Fairfield Counties—presented itself, she jumped at the chance. During this time she wrote hundreds of articles, including celebrity profiles, travel, fashion, and beauty.
After 5 successful years at the WAG-Emily became a full-time freelance writer for media outlets such as, The Huffington Post, Oprah.com, Elite Traveler, Robb Report, Gotham, and Cottages & Gardens. In 2010 Emily published her first book, Facebook Fairytales, which was featured at the Frankfurt Book Fair, and Emily was one of 20 guests of honor. In 2012, Emily wrote her debut novel, You Knew Me When (Penguin), which published on September 3, 2013 (the reason why we are doing this interview today). Her second novel, The Love That Lies Ahead (Penguin Random House), will publish in September 2014 and we can’t wait!!
When Emily is not playing her successful role as an accomplish Author she is a mom to 2 beautiful little boys and a loving wife to her husband Lewis. She enjoys traveling, cooking, and cozying up with a good book (go figure). She’s been known to ride on a Harley Davidson, and apparently she does a mean Running Man! Hahaha
How do you balance your busy schedule and being a famous Author with being a wife, friend and lover to your husband?
I'm not going to lie and say it's easy! You have to figure out what your priorities are and then map out a way to make things work as best you can. I do my best to get all of my writing done while my kids are at school, since I need complete quiet and concentration for that. This frees me up to spend time with them when they get home, whether it's taking them out to lunch or to the park for a picnic. I do have help, which I know is a luxury and one that I truly appreciate. It allows me to get the work I need to get done each day and still carve out mommy time. I also plan ahead in a major way. It helps that I've always been a Type A personality! I'm the mom who has everything set up for dinner—for both my kids and us—by 9am in the morning! This way, when dinner time does roll around, I can be with my kids rather than running around the kitchen in a panic about what I'm going to feed everyone. In addition to having a nanny, my husband is a great father and partner. He's always ready to step in and do whatever is needed whenever it's needed. In order to keep our relationship strong—outside of our rolls as mommy and daddy—we'll take a two day getaway alone a few times a year, while the kids get spoiled at my parents' house! Everyone comes away happy!
As a successful woman, what three elements do you think are key to keeping your work life and family life balanced?
Planning ahead, maintaining a sense of humor, and realizing that you can't be everything to everyone all the time.
Why do you think is important that women support each other and empower each other to grow and succeed as opposed to being envious and competing with each other?
What goes around comes around. The saying really is true. I've always been a big believer in helping other people, specifically ambitious women, to succeed. Why would you not? I've come up in a business where, sadly, this isn't the case. Every woman for herself. But the people I choose to surround myself with aren't like that. I have a great group of successful female friends. We all support each other and those who are trying to get to where we are. And it truly does come back in the best possible ways. Of course, that's not the reason to help people; it's just an added benefit. It makes me sick to see women who are envious and competitive with one another. There's enough success to go around!!
how would you describe your personal style? and who inspires your style?
My style is eclectic. The pieces in my closet range from classic silhouettes to leather pants to dramatic evening gowns. It depends how I'm feeling on any given day. I like to push the envelope but not to push it past the point of good taste. I believe in dressing for your age. In other words, now that I'm 37 you will not find me wearing skirts that are too short or tops that are too low cut. There's a line between sexy and inappropriate. My style is inspired by my mother and grandmother and my dear friends Zoe Schaeffer and Alessandra Meskita, who are both in the fashion industry. Zoe has never looked bad a day in her life. Alessandra is a very talented designer who dresses me for nearly every event I attend! Her store, Meskita, will be opening in Beverly Hills in November! I'm also inspired by my friends April Bukofser and Marin Milio, the founders and designing minds behind the brand AprilMarin—their new line is spectacular!
