3 Ways To Stop Hot Flashes

3 Ways To Stop Hot Flashes 2560 1707 Tammy Caciola

3 ways to stop hot flashes

Ladies, let’s face it, hot flashes and night sweats are common and unwanted symptoms when going through menopause. Hot flashes are a common symptom of menopause. There’s nothing worse than feeling your body heat up when you are out shopping, eating with friends, or on a date night! With a sudden rush of heat from your chest to your head, you know it’s coming—a hot flash. Your skin gets red, and you feel like ripping your clothes off! For me, this happens mostly at night, which in turn disturbs my sleep.

Hot flashes occasionally creep up when I’m out and about, too. Did you know that hot flashes last an average of 5 to 10 years while diminishing in severity and frequency? That’s a long time to be uncomfortable and irritable! Below I’m sharing 3 tips to stop hot flashes when you are in a crisis.


If you’re looking to make small and simple lifestyle changes to help with hot flashes, you can exercise and avoid caffeine, alcohol, and spicy foods. If you can, also try keeping your alcohol to a minimum. I know it’s not what you want to hear, but I notice I have trouble sleeping at night because of hot flashes every time I have wine or a cocktail. Dressing in layers can help bring relief, no matter what time of year. After all, hot flashes show up in every season. In addition to these tangible lifestyle changes, you can practice deep breathing when you feel one coming on. Adding meditation and other stress-relief techniques to your daily routine can also decrease the number of hot flashes you have.


I’ve recently started using the KINDRA Cool Down Mist, and I am thrilled with how well it works! Not only am I noticing fewer hot flashes during the day and less sweating at night, but I can also tell a difference in how nourished my skin looks and feels. That’s right – this Cool Down Mist doubles as a nourishing face spray. I feel refreshed, hydrated, and cool each time I use it. It’s as simple as it sounds… when I feel that familiar warmth coming on, I spray the mist on my skin, and it calms it right down. The best part is that it’s small and convenient to carry with you wherever you go! I have a couple at home, in my purse, and in my car to use on the go.


In addition to the cool down mist, I also use KINDRA’s core supplement. These capsules were created for peri/menopause and beyond, so we do not have to do it alone. The Core supplement includes super-antioxidant Pycnogenol that has been clinically studied and shown to support healthy body circulation, mental clarity, and skin suppleness. It has helped with my hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and brain fog. I’ve also noticed that my skin feels more nourished since they help with dryness. These supplements also contain Ashwagandha, which helps reduce stress and boost libido. What’s not to love?

Beach To The Street Styling

Beach To The Street StylingBeach To The Street Looks

We recently traveled to Costa Rica over Spring break for a family vacation. While I’m not a light packer (usually 2-3 bags), I try to take versatile pieces to wear multiple ways. When it comes to a beach trip, styling outfits from the beach to the street is something I love to do! In other words, pieces I can wear over my bathing suit to go exploring or out to dinner in.

Below I have a REEL serious to let you see more of what I’m talking about! Just TAP THE PICTURE.

Crochet One-Piece

The first look has a chic crochet one-piece with a sheer skirt coverup. This flowy skirt is under $30 and is available in multiple colors. To change it up to a street look, I added a neutral printed blouse and changed out the sandals. I’m carrying the same oversized tote into town because I know I’m going to buy something…lol!

The one-piece has a long torso option, and I suggest getting that if you are on the fence.


Corset Top One-Piece

The next look is probably my favorite option. The black one-piece suit has a corset top and is such a flattering suit! Again, order a long torso if you are unsure. I’m a 34D, and this top fits me well.

I paired it with a straw hat, oversized sunnies, and a large straw bag for the beach.

Take this look to a dinner out with chic pants from The Shore Line. Trust me when I say you need these pants in your rotation. They fit so well and are so easy to style in many ways. I kept the all-black theme for the top, added a cute light blouse, and tied it in the front. I switched my beach bag for a summer bag and added heels for dinner out!

Bikini with Cover-up

If you are looking for a great bikini, I love these sheared bottoms! They have a great fit, and coverage is moderate. I paired it with a different brand top that I have in several colors because I love the fit and style. I wear a Medium. My coverup is under $25, and I wore it constantly over my last trip. Several colors are available, and it looks so cute tied as well.

To change this to a street look, I added denim shorts I love and a cute bright pink terry top. The designer market tote is a new purchase, and It was perfect for carrying around town!

My polarized glasses are a favorite and only $27, Less if you use code Tammy15!

Spring Wardrobe Refresh with Evereve | Her Fashioned Life


One of my favorite seasons is just around the corner: spring! With warmer weather approaching and the fresh smell of flowers in the air, it’s the perfect time to update my spring wardrobe. From the best basics to simple pops of color, EVEREVE has so many new pieces to share. As most of you know, EVEREVE is my go-to shop when it comes to a seasonal wardrobe refresh, and I can’t wait to show you what I’ve rounded up. Whether you’re looking for transitional pieces, versatile basics, affordable denim, or sexy date-night looks, this is the place to go! The stylists are always on-point with pulling cute outfits and making it easy to find what you are looking for. I recently did an EVEREVE try-on haul over on my Instagram that you can watch here.

If you’re shopping for spring and love what you see below, click here to check out another spring refresh post with EVEREVE.

Blue and White striped cardigan and wide leg drawstring trousers for evereve


Is it really spring without at least one blue and white striped piece? This pretty and polished shirt dress by Z Supply actually doubles as a cardigan, as I’ve done here. I paired it with a simple white tank and these wide-leg trousers that can be easily dressed up or down.

If you don’t own a white dress for spring and summer, this one is a must-have. Wear it to the beach, on a date night, or even dress it down with sneakers to run errands. This is one of my favorite Evereve purchases to date!

The best denim jacket layered over a white dress for spring


If you know me, you know I’m a denim jacket lover through and through, and EVEREVE always has the best selection. I wear mine throughout spring and summer and even into fall.

Schutz block heels and black platform sandals for spring and summer


Need a spring shoe refresh? These neutral block heels and black wedge sandals are calling your name!

black sweater tank and white and blue striped linen pants


A sweater tank like this can be a fantastic piece to have when transitioning from winter to spring. Also, I suggest investing in neutral pieces that can be worn with just about anything! I paired this tank with these striped wide-leg trousers I know I’ll be taking on all of my vacays!

Pink blazer and frayed denim outfit for spring | her fashioned life


Is there anything better than a light pink blazer? Wear it to work during the day and at night out on the town. I paired it with a simple white tank and these light wash frayed jeans that just so happens to be my new favorite pair of denim!

Polished yet casual, this wardrobe-essential chambray shirt is the perfect closet refresh piece. I love a good denim on denim look for the spring.

Pretty white pullover from Evereve | Her fashioned life


A pointelle knit adds vintage appeal to this stylish pullover, featuring a rib-knit neckline, drop shoulders, and bell sleeves. I’ve paired this piece with jeans, but it would be so cute with shorts and slides or layered over a summer dress.

White midi dress and neutral striped cardigan | her fashioned life


I love this little white midi dress paired with this multicolor striped cardigan for a complete spring get-up. This cardigan features a mix of neutrals, making it a versatile, everyday piece for the upcoming season.

9 Classic Pieces that are Worth a Splurge

9 Classic Pieces That Are Worth A Splurge

When it comes to shopping, I’m all about searching for good deals and sales; however, there are a few wardrobe staples I’m willing to splurge on. Why? I’m a true believer in quality over quantity. When I’m looking for classic and versatile styles, high quality is worth the investment. Plus, I don’t know about you, but when I find an investment piece I love… it’s a guarantee I’ll wear it over and over. Nothing beats a splurge piece that will last for years to come! In this post, I’m sharing 9 classic pieces that are worth a splurge, so keep scrolling to see some of my favorite timeless wardrobe staples.
While you’re feeling inspired to build a wardrobe with high-quality basics, check out this post.

1. White Button-Down or White Tee

Every classy woman needs a white button-down or plain white tee (or both!). There is a reason this is number 1 on my list. You can wear a button-down pretty much anywhere – to the beach, to work, date night, weekend errands… you name it. If you’re able to invest in a quality piece, I highly suggest The Great t-shirts, also Rag & Bone and Frank & Eileen. My favorite budget-friendly brands are Madewell, Everlane, and The Perfect Tee.

2. Black Blazer

One of the most sophisticated basics a woman can wear is a black blazer. A functional blazer will become one of your favorite investment pieces in no time! Wear it to work or out on date night.

3. Classic Heels

A chic pair of heels is without question a worthy investment piece. Whether they’re black,  nude, or white, finding a neutral pair that goes with everything is what I recommend. Heels are known for automatically dressing up an outfit and are usually the first place my money is spent:)

5. Great Pai  of Jeans

The perfect jeans can be so tricky to find these days, but once you find the ones you love, you can wear them over and over again. Investing in 1-2 good pairs of jeans will make your life so easy! My favorites are Everlane, AGolde, and Abercrombie.

6. Quality Neutral Sandals

Just like a classic pair of heels, every woman should own at least one pair of quality neutral sandals. With quality comes comfort and longevity. I’ve owned some designer sandals for over five years, so the cost per wear is working for me! For spring and summer especially, a sandal splurge is worth it!

7. The Perfect Clutch

Investing in the perfect clutch that will add a chic vibe and interest to your outfit. Clutches are low-maintenance and can easily be dressed up or down.

8. Statement Necklace

A statement necklace such as a gold chain or a layered neck stack can elevate any look in a matter of seconds. I love the bold pearl necklaces that are trending right now! Keep your other jewelry minimal, and let the necklace be the star.

9. Leopard Jacket

Last but not least, a leopard jacket. I love this neutral print that is a forever classic! A leopard layer will add interest and elevate even a simple white t-shirt and jeans!
