Beauty Faves: Winter 2018

With the launch of my new beauty category on my blog I thought it would be fitting for the first post to be my current beauty favorites. I’ll do one post like this each season talking about the different products that I’ve been using and some others that I’ve recently found and loved. Since I don’t wear much make up this category will mostly focus on skin and hair care, and various other beauty products like ones for nails, eyes, and lips. I’ve found that when it comes to skincare its best to stick to more natural ingredients with not a lot of extras added. Sometimes these extra ingridents can counteract other products you are using and you don’t even … Continue reading

The Perfect Velvet Dress

I consider myself to be a bit of a velvet expert. I’ve had many velvet dresses thru the years both vintage and new…but have never found the absolute perfect one. This is why I’m so excited to team up with the talented designer Nathalia JMag (from Project Runway) to create the perfect velvet dress.

Beautiful full bell sleeves with a v neck cut, an accentuated waist … Continue reading

Trend Talk: Red

The Red Trend The red trend is something I’m sure you’ve noticed during the past couple months. But did you know that because red is such a bold color it’s actually quite easy to style? I posted a few looks here showing various ways to pull off red, and really with the color that attracts this much attention it’s better to just go all out. I’m still actually on the lookout for the perfect red coat for this season. I’ll update you once I find it. If you did want to go for more of a subtle red look I would stick to accessories, like I did in this previous post here. While red is one of my favorite colors … Continue reading

Fashion Month Favorite Designers 2017

Now that fashion month has officially come to a close I will be reviewing my favorite designers from New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion week. Each location has a bit of a different feel to it, so I have chosen one label from each week that was my personal favorite. As always, picking only one designer is much easier said than done. I will include photos from the show/collection as well as a brief description about the brand and the new collection. Feel free to comment which were your favorites this year, as there are so many talented designers it’s so hard to choose just one for each week so I would love to hear your picks as well! … Continue reading
