Allison Williams stuns on the new cover of Glamour Magazine

Who’s excited for season 4 of ‘Girls’!? I am VERY excited, to say the least! I hope this year is more…. funny…. but I’ll watch it anyway.

‘Girls’ actress Allison Williams landed the February 2015 cover of Glamour Magazine, and she’s never looked better! The 26-year-old opens up about her upcoming wedding to fiance and College Humor co-founder Ricky Van Veen (the two have been engaged since February 2014).

Allison told Glamour that she’s planning ahead for her future.

“I have a lot of questions: How do I get to a place in my career where I can go be a mom for a little while, and then come back and be a mom and an actress at the same time?” the 26-year-old TV star wonders.

Who gives her advice? “Every time I find a woman in film, an actress who has kids, I, like a sociopath, corner her and ask, ‘How did it work?’ Everyone says, ‘Don’t think so much.’ [Jemima Kirke], from Girls, is always saying, ‘Just get pregnant! Just have a baby.’ And I’m like, ‘You are so much cooler than I am.’ I love what I do, but I have no doubt that when I start my family, that’s life. This is my job, but that’s life.”

For now, Williams focused on playing Marnie on HBO’s Girls, which returns for its fourth season Sunday. She’ll star in the series for “as long as they’ll have me,” she says. “I would never ever get sick of playing her, because there is no sense of ‘Oh, I’ve done that already.’ It’s all new—new scenarios, new feelings.”

Williams has guest-starred on FOX’s The Mindy Project and played the titular role in NBC’s Peter Pan Live!, but she has yet to appear in a movie. Of course, that’s also on her to-do list. “The number of scripts that take my breath away are few and far between,” she explains to Glamour. “There are some that are gorgeous, but I want to play all the male roles in them. I always ask, and I’m always told no.”

Finding the right roles—on TV, on film and on stage—is important to the relative newcomer. “I have vague EGOT goals. Who doesn’t?” she asks. “I have zero of those so far, so I have a lot of work to do.”

Focusing on achieving her career goals has helped Williams to ignore her hater, whose criticisms aren’t limited to her acting abilities. What’s her biggest gripe? “Being analyzed about my weight drives me crazy. It’s easier to say, ‘Oh, she must be anorexic and depriving herself,’ than it is to say, ‘She might have a fast metabolism,'” she says. “I deprive myself nothing. But that’s an annoying thing to say, right?”

Brighter, Smoother Eyes for 2015 with Volante Eye Creme

Volante eye jar

They say the eyes are the window to the soul, so I haven’t been too exited to see my soul windows surrounded by an increasing number of crow’s feet and under eye circles. I had the chance to sample VOLANTÉ’s Transformative Eye Crème and jumped at the chance.

On top of crows feet, my “I mean business mom” face is creating a pretty deep crease between my eyebrows. So I needed help and fast. Upon my first use I noticed how great the texture of this eye creme is. Very thick but still the airy lightness of a souffle. And absolutely no greasiness I find this works great under makeup or by itself at bedtime. It feels so refreshing on my skin its one of the beauty steps I look forward to each day.

Within 2 weeks I saw a huge improvement in my under eye circles. Even though my sleep patterns hadn’t changed I had lost the raccoon look under my eyes and the skin was getting tighter. My crow’s feet are starting to fade and even my mom crease is looking less scary. Love how quick this is changing my skin and can’t wait to see the results from continued use.

Walgreen’s Has Everything To Start a Happy, Healthy and Beautiful New Year! #STARTSHERE

new-yearresolutionslist

Jocelyn and I have been friends for 29 years now and part of that long term friendship is sharing our goals with each other. We both sat down to pick our top two resolutions for 2015 and wanted to share them with you. Walgreens gave us some fantastic products to help us achieve our goals and even better they are letting us give one of our lucky readers and AMAZING prize package. So keep on reading to see what is on our resolution list this year and make sure to enter the contest!

Erin’s New Year’s Resolutions:

grace-contigo

#1 Drink more water.

I think health in general is dependent on getting enough water something I have been lacking. So I have the Contigo Autoseal Grace Water Bottle to help me with this goal.  This BPA-free water bottle features a one-touch AUTOSEAL lid that automatically seals between sips to eliminate spills and leaks. Since I started using it I have already doubled my water intake!

 

#STARTSHERE

#2 Move More.

I like working out but I can be prone to a hard workout in the morning then getting locked into my desk all day. I am excited to be trying out the  Walgreens Activity Tracker which is way better that  your momma’s old pedometer. This cool little bracelet tracks my steps, calories burned, miles per day and also tracks my sleep. On top of all those nifty features it also shows my texts and phone call so I can keep in the loop even when racking up the miles. My kids loving checking to see how many steps I have gone and its a great reminder to get up and move.

Jocelyn’s New Year’s Resolutions:

# 1 READ MORE!

This has been on my Resolution list for years, and this year I’m finally doing something about it! Erin and I started a book club we call “My Book Club Has a Wine Problem.” We decided it was high time we start reading more – and this year I plan to read, READ, READ! We’ve knocked out a couple books already, and I’m currently tackling the 500-page “Marie Antionette: The Journey” by Antionia Fraser. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds for me!

#2 SLOW DOWN

This is a huge problem of mine. My day-to-day life is currently 70 MPH. I need to take a step back, and slow the heck down. I fill my days with so many activities and unnecessary things that I’m not taking the time to slow down and enjoy my life. Enjoy my husband, enjoy my kids. My boys are 12 and 14 and life is happening way to quickly. They will be gone before I know it! I need to really try and tone down my activity level this year and spend some time really focusing on the things that are really important. I think as adults we all get so swept up in our day-to-day lives that we really forget to slow down and enjoy what we actually have. With my kids getting older, I need to grasp onto as much as I can – while I still am able! Soon they won’t want me interfering with anything (but I’ll still try!).
