Popcorn for Momzzang Bod

For those who don't know what Momzzangs are, I'll break down what the word means:
"Mom" = Body (bod)
"Zzangs" = Best

Now, why popcorn?

3 cups of popped popcorn = a mere 93 calories
more antioxidants + fiber than fruits + veggies
100% whole grain
result: perfect snack food for weight loss
important note: choose low salt, butter, and oil

- - -
Of course, popcorn alone can not instantly turn your body into a momzzang's.
After School's Kahi is one of the most well-known momzzangs and for her, pilates, yoga, biking, horseback riding, jogging, and other leisure workouts are what keep her in such good shape at the age of 32.

 (+)  "She also revealed that if she sat around and did nothing, she’d become frustrated, and so she always learned to do something."

S. Korea: Dazed & Confused Magazine + Jessica SNSD

Aside from street fashion, pictorials and shoots keep my creative juices flowing even crazier and more furiously. Por qué. Because a lot of stuff I see on high fashion magazines like Vogue are often things I could (would) never wear. So, I was a bit surprised to see that the outfits from Dazed & Confused Korea were very quite wearable ( :o!!) Makeup and hair are important not to miss...
Jessica from the Korean girl group SNSD was one of the main subjects of the March photo shoot of Dazed & Confused Korea. Se7en being the other and also sharing the honor of being on the (second) cover.

Issue: March
Magazine: Dazed & Confused Korea
Cover: Jessica from SNSD
Place: New York

Things to notice:

+ neutral tones
+ European grunge (olive green parkas, layers, baggy over straight, etc)
+ NY City sleek (black undershirt under clean-cut white blazer, black liquid skinnies)
+ smokey cat-eye makeup
+ polished and futuristic cat-eyes
+ thick brows
+ Cory Kennedy hair ;)

Jessica on the cover !
+ gotta love the thick brows and smokey cateye
