#WhatShaeWore 2.3.16

If I'm being completely honest... the hardest part about working in TV is figuring out what to wear each shoot.  Should I be dressy? Casual? Edgy? Feminine?  -For someone like me who enjoys changing up my looks this can get overwhelming - not to mention EXPENSIVE!!!!! I mean... I can not afford to be buying a $200 dress every time I make an appearance! #nothappening

THANKFULLYYYYYYYYY I have some incredibly talented friends around me who help ensure that I'm TV ready each week.  I was so happy with how this week's EXTRA look turned out that I thought I'd break down all the deets in a lil blggity blog. :) 

Let's start with this RIDICULOUS MAKEUP JOB a la @LyndsayZMakeup:

Unfortunaltely I can't even begin to go into a full product breakdown because it would take FOREVERRRRRR.  The key to getting the perfect glow is layering the right products and that's exactly what she did.   Look at the sparkle on these eyes!!!

I love how the makeup colors she chose really went perfectly with the dress.  The pattern itself is pretty girly so we wanted to do a little but of an edgy/smokey eye as a contrast.  The sparkle was an added bonus and looked GORGE underneath the lights on set.   

Now THIS DRESS.  OMG I'm so in love with it.  It's by an Australian brand called Cooper Street and my stylist Shelby from www.NightCapPR.com pulled it for me.  When a stylist "pulls" a look that typically means that the client [being me] would wear the item on TV, or for whatever shoot It's needed for, and then it'd be returned.  It works really well because the on camera talent isn't having to purchase all these new pieces every week, and the brand itself is getting great exposure by being worn on national television.  #WinWin

Onto the shoes!  These strappy beauties are by Charles David [you can purchase them by clicking here].  Shelby thought these would be the perfect way to complete the feminine yet edgy look.   I love how pairing a soft floral with a black shoe is so unexpected.  Typically I would have gone with a nude but somehow these babies just pulled everything together.   The purse is one that I featured a couple weeks ago on EXTRA's Shop the Scoop segment and it's by Tess Handbags.  I've literally worn it every day since I featured it - genuine leather - gray - gorgeousness!

Thanks again to my girls Lyndsay & Shelby for putting this look together.  Love you two!!!!

Posture of the Heart

 2016 has been an extraordinary year for me thus far.  Not because I had some major life altering change, not because I landed a huge job, not because I suddenly won the "destiny" lottery, but because I have chosen to be intentional... in the small things.  

I'm a big picture thinker.  Which means I also easily get overwhelmed by my dreams and desires.   I tend to focus on the larger scale vision, which then stresses me out because I miss all the little steps in between right now, and 2 years from now.  Does that make sense?  I find myself getting super overwhelmed with the sense of "How do I get there?"  "How do I leave THAT kind of impact?"  "I know You've called me to great things, but how do I DO those great things?"  I so easily get stuck in my own head thinking that my destiny will only come about because of how hard I work, or what I do/don't do.  But... it's not about me.  And lately God has been constantly needing to remind me of that.  It's about today.  It's about RIGHT NOW.   

"You cannot arrive at your life's purpose by starting with a focus on yourself.  You must begin with God, your Creator."  -Rick Warren

Posture of the Heart

(Thanks to my friend Brenna Carnuccio for this timely phrase!)


What is the posture of my heart?  This is the question I have been presenting to myself every morning.  This simple step has drastically changed not only my outlook on situations I face (good and bad), but it has had a major impact on my attitude.   

To be honest, life in LA is hard.  Yes it's glamorous at times, it's fun, and exciting and unpredictably wonderful, but it's also comes with so much pressure - pressure to stand out, to be skinny, to be perfect, to be rich, etc.  Those things I just mentioned are not necessarily what I strive for, but simply the reality of what often gets focused on in this industry.  It's the reality of this culture.  While there are some amazing highs... there are even lower lows.  It is SO EASY to be distracted from God and His plan for my life -  especially when sometimes I'm like "What the heck is YOUR plan God?!?!?!?!?!" 

But it's all about perspective. 

This morning I read an amazing quote by Anais Nin... We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.  Even IF I have all of these BIG PICTURE dreams and desires, the reality is I can't actually SEE the big picture, because I'm not God.  So it's really a waste of my time to plot out my life according to what I think "the ultimate" accomplishment would be. Ya know?  What I can work with is today, is right now.  God what is your plan for me TODAY?  

So I have decided this year to be intentional - ESPECIALLY when it comes to my time.  It's amazing how - as I take these small steps - I've noticed that they have major impact in my life.  Again, what is the posture of my heart?  My prayer for myself every day is simply "God use me to show your love to someone today & give me the wisdom to know TODAY how I should spend my time."

And ya know what?  The great thing is that God wants us to have maximum impact here on Earth!  He WANTS us to have a "big picture" effect on the world, so all the little seemingly small steps we take out of obedience to Him, actually perfectly aligns us with not only His purpose for our life but His plan to make the most out of OUR lives and who we are destined to be.

I am not here by accident.  You are not here by accident.  We are all here because God has a specific plan for every single one of us. 

So all this to say,  if you tend to get overwhelmed by life, by your dreams, by where you are vs. where you want to be - I FEEL YA!  Take a step back with me... I'm telling you - it works!   Take the time each morning or evening or whenever to position your heart before God.  Be intentional. Take time to steward the most important parts of your being - your soul and your time.  
I want to end with a verse that has really been an encouragement to me lately.  

You Lord give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and their trust in You. 

Isaiah 26:3.

*SEXY* Smokey Eye Tutorial

Gosh I love a great smokey eye!!!  It has definitely taken me some time to figure out exactly what type of smokey eye I like, and then learning how to do it was another process... but THIS is the final look I landed on and have been rocking a TON lately.  Perfect for a night out but yet soft enough to be worn during the day as well.  If you want to see exactly how I got this look, check out the video below. :)

Anastasia of Bev Hills - http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/lip-gloss.html


Well award season has officially kicked off with one of it's biggest nights - The Golden Globes!  Tonight's red carpet looks were STUNNING, to say the least.  We saw TONS of color - from classic reds, to jewel tone greens, to pastels, and some white hot looks as well! 

Honestly I found it hard to pick my favs of the night because there really were so many beautiful gowns to chose from.  I'll start with my top 3 and then move on to some honorable mentions, how's that? :) 

#1.  Jennifer Lopez

I mean, if you know me at all then this is no surprise to you.  I typically love everything she does on the red carpet (with the exception of a few looks), and not only do I typically love Jlo - but I'm OBSESSED with marigold!!!  Seriously one of my all time favorite colors to see on a red carpet.  It's just such an eye catching color, and when complimented by bronzed skin - PERFECTION.   There is nothing I DON'T love about this.  The cape-let, the skirt, the jewels, the glossy red lip, LOVE LOVE LOVE!

#2. Olivia Wilde in Michael Kors Collection

Red is a pretty common color to see at award shows, and I am generally not drawn towards red in - BUTTT being that this is more of a cranberry tone... I must admit I'm kinda in love with it.  I mean, you have to have a body like Olivia to pull off a fit like this.   I LOVE the sleek look of this gown so much on her!  I also appreciate the fact that she takes risks with her makeup.

Most of the makeup we saw tonight was super natural, with a pop of color on the lip.  Olivia did the opposite - bold color on the eyes and a natural lip. 

#3.  Jenna Dewan-Tatum 

Jenna has been a mainstay on my #BESTDRESSED list lately.  I just love how she always looks youthful, fun, and glamorous.... not to mention she and Channing Tatum are like the couple that every other couple wants to hang with!!! 

Anyway, back to her look - navy is another one of my all time favorite colors.  I love it because in a sea of (often) black gowns, navy pops.  I especially like the contrast of it with her fair skin. She just looks so effortless to me.  I need to find out her skincare routine because her face is ALWAYS glowing. 

Okay, honorable mentions... and I'm just gonna zip through these...

Jennifer Lawrence - LOVE her, and LOVE the cut outs in this dress... I kinda wish it was a different color because we have seen her in a lot of red. 

Amy Adam - It's hard to tell, but this color definitely was more of a tangerine than a red.  What a perfect compliment to her strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes.  This neckline is SO FLATTERING on her.  It's a fairly safe choice for a gown but this look as whole is GORGE.  

And lastly... Lily James: pretty pretty pretty.  I don't know what I like most about this look - between the bronzey makeup and the softness of the gown... just really pretty. 

So who were your #BESTDRESSED picks?!?!   Tweet me @ShaeWilbur and let me know!

Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez SPLIT

I was so proud to be a part of HLN's The Daily Share team this week.  We were among the first to break the news of Halle Berry's divorce LIVE on air. While I'm in NO WAY happy to hear that her marriage has ended, it is always a rush to be a part of breaking news. Watch the clip for my thoughts on Halle and her future - they just may surprise you! :) 

From Mexico, With Love

Let's just say my first official trip to Mexico was one that I will never forget... for MANY reasons.  I have so many fun snapshots & videos from trip - I thought I'd put them all together in one blog (as opposed to flooding your instagram feed).  

SO... the purpose for the trip in the first place was to celebrate my Dad's wedding, which would take place on Saturday.  A group of about 30 of us flew in a few days earlier to sight-see and take in a bit of the culture... and the trip begins:

Airport selfie - about to hop on the red-eye
I arrive and get taken to meet up w/ the group at Lake Chapala for some sightseeing
This town is completely enchanting
& cute little shops
Did I mention FRESH donuts sold along the streets!?!?!  DELISH!
We head from there to a boat ride on Lake Chapala... I steered obvi!
Then back to our GORGEOUS hacienda style hotel in Guadalajara
Time to rest up for tomorrow's pre-wedding festivities!
Day 2:  Now, I've seen my share of incredible estates... but this one was unmatched.  My dad and his fiance [now wife] arranged for an incredible private brunch complete with MARIACHI BAND, dancing horses, and some DELICIOUS authentic Mexican food. 

#OOTD featuring some super colorful shorts I've been wanting to wear :)

Brunch with a view of the indoor horse ring


Tried to pack our whole fam into a buggy

THIS FOOD THO!!!!! OMG heaven on earth!
So much color everywhere - couldn't resist snuggling up in this blanket for a pic.
Day 3:  The wedding.  Some of these aren't the best quality pics because they were taken on my iPhone 5 (yes I'm ghetto I know), but they represent some unforgettable memories so I wanted to share them regardless. :)
Daddy about to get hitched!
last minute tweaks :)
