Fashion Week is back around the corner – means get ready for style inspiration coming at you from every angle. I personally love the hair and makeup walking down the catwalk. How they want to make the girls get noticed for their beauty yet must keep eyes on the prize of the new collection. Let’s see if this new take on the braid (which I personally refer to as a plait in the english manor!) hits to paparazzi snaps next week!?

playful white lace gloves
soft crochet net vintage gloves
"old hollywood glamour" sleeved vintage gloves
Get ready ladies, everyone is going gaga for gloves! I’m not talking Michael Jackson (sequin disco balls) or Madonna (finger cut outs)…it’s all about the vintage visionaries. Inspired by style icons such as Jackie O. and Audrey Hepburn, vintage gloves ooze feminity and charm. Now that the cold weather is quickly approaching, time to bust out your inner “old Hollywood glamour”. Perfect with your fav flowy dress, trendy winter cape, or cashmere sweater- gloves give you that little something extra. Whether your gloves are lace, knit, or crocheted there is a chic pair out there for you.

It’s important for women to take care of skin in order for it to age “gracefully”. According to the healthy skin bible, sunscreen must be put on every day and reapplied every so often through out the day. The most overlooked rule is definitely moisturization. It is an quick and easy step that makes a huge significant difference on the complexion of your skin.
Rodin Olio Lusso here makes oil products for the face, body, and hair. Luxurious ingrediants like jasmine, rose hip seed, sweet almond, jojoba, calendula, and many more are used in the products. Even the packaging looks luxurious and expensive.

There’s no doubt the fall weather is upon us. I’m sure your closets are stocked with luscious cashmere sweaters, beautiful scarves, and cozy mittens. The question is, is your hair (color) ready? Bleach blonde, fiery red ginger red, and chocolate brown were THE shades for the summer, but not so much for the fall. Take a look at these three “it” shades for the fall.

Okay, raise your hands if hurricane irene or the earthquake that happened in virginia made life a little harder for you. For all you Atlantic City go-ers, I’m sorry to say (if you haven’t heard) that the place will be closed- only their third time in the past 33 years…. And know I wasn’t thrilled to have my work lost on Tuesday when the aftershock of earthquake hit NYC.
What I’m trying to say is.. ’”when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” There are going to be hiccups in life and you’ve just got to make the best of a situation. With the storm coming, I know I will be looking forward to using my new Opening Ceremony umbrella.
what gets me through my bad days
i adore this umbrella
and I adore this one too...

Good make up can totally change your look and appearance. I for one have an issue with dark circles. They make you look tired and unhealthy. Your appearance is important because your co-workers or friends’ view of you matters. To awaken your look try putting on concealer where necessary, mascara on the lashes, and blush on the cheeks. See pictures below what a difference make up does!

Want to look good (in person) and in a picture? Make up and hair aren’t the only things you can do to enhance your looks. Here are a few helpful posing tricks and tips that will make you shine in pictures.
- Cross your legs, put your bag in front of you or your hands on your thighs. Smile demurely.
- Placing your hands on your hips and pull elbows back.
- Putting your hands on your hips creates an illusion that your legs are longer than they actually are.
- Put chin down and tilt head a little.
- As a general rule of thumb, you shouldn’t look like you’re posing. It should look natural.
confidence helps posing look effortless
a pose that works every time
accessories help ease awkwardness

I’ve recently been watching the CWTV’s Shedding For the Wedding show. It got me thinking about which kind of an engagement ring I’d want in the (not near) future. It’s normal to ponder these things right? Or have I been influenced by my friends who, on our senior trip, flipped through magazines in search of the perfect wedding dress. What do you think of my find (assuming Mr. Right is very wealthy)?

Dogs or puppies in the arms of a man or a woman never ceases to attract attention from passerby’s on the streets. This summer try walking you friends’ or your next door neighbors’ pups and see if you can’t pick up any cute guys or girls at the park! I’m currently obsessed with Boo, a Facebook dog star that has over 1,300,000 fans. He’s looks completely different groomed! Enjoy the photos!
