the summer goddess glow : #heartbraid

Add a comment

happy & stylish heart braid

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!?

summer goddess glow #creamsicle

We all know pink & red are the ways to play it safe with our luscious lips… and I don’t know about you, but the bright crayola colored lips are a bit too way-out-there for me to jump on that current trend bandwagon!

Needless to say I found a happy medium solution today!

So extra fitting, this soft creamsilce orange shade keeps the final lingering days of summer at the forefront of my smile.

..well the parrot is the queen of mockery. And we all know a little copy-cat action is the finest form of flattery!

Loving the color combo here, with a side twist of art deco and voila you’re weekly nails-to-get-noticed are ready to go.

Beads aren’t just for dresses anymore, treat your nails. Bring beaded sophistication to your nail beads, don’t they deserve it?

In the short amount of beach time I was able to squeeze in this weekend while on the Jersey shore, aside from obtaining too many unwanted freckles, I managed to get through quite a bit of this fabulous sequel.  If you’ve read or seen the movie “The Devil Wears Prada,” I’ve personally seen it more times than I can count on two hands, than “Revenge Wears Prada,” is something you have to read to find out what happens to those beloved characters.

It is not very complex writing and doesn’t take much to read, making it the perfect light beach book. I always find the whole out-of-reach hottie becoming true love theme to be enticing, and I love to hear some good monster-in-law gossip, so I’d say this is some chick-lit worth reading!

It takes place a decade later from when Andy left Runway, and shows how she, along with her BFF Emily (yes the crazy neurotic assistant from “Devil”, ironic right!?) now have their own high end wedding magazine. While trying to kick-start the business, Andy falls for Max, a man who’s known to be a womanizer and finds him to be quite charming. Everything seems golden until Andy reads a letter from Max’s mother on the morning of their wedding day written to him about her. It sends her world flying out of place and makes her question everything up until then….

The gal behind the series : Lauren Weisberger

Lauren Weisberger wrote her first novel, “The Devil Wears Prada”,  in 2003 from her own experiences assisting editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour. She is 36 years old and  currently lives in NYC with her husband and 2 dogs.  Lauren has written 3 more novels after that, 2 being New York times best-sellers, and her most recent one “Revenge wears Prada” being a best seller as well.  I think her ability to pick topics for fiction novels that she has significant real life experiences with make her writing so successful.

the summer goddess glow : #BobbyPinDIY

Boy it sure is summertime outside these days! The heat has arrived.

And if you’re like me, there are more “up-do” days when the temps are this high… so it’s time to get playfully creative!

Here’s a take on the average at-ease bun: dig into the bottom of your make-up bag and grab a few of those bobbin pins to accessorize a light and easy fresh look for your day!

 

Step 1Fresh clean hair always feels and looks best. Use your typical lotions and potions, dry hair smooth with a paddle brush for a smooth base.

Step 2Pull hair back from the face and secure into a low side ponytail. Wrap ends up and around, creating a loose, twisted bun. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 3Use a contrasting color of bobby pins to make a row of chevrons (learn something new everyday, I had no clue that’s what this design is called!). Black pins are a good choice for blondes; silver would be better for dark strands. Slide one pin in on a diagonal, then a second pin through the first to create a stable v shape. Repeat until desired pattern is created.

Step 4Step back, glance yourself in the mirror, smile at the beautiful you.

#dangerouslyinlove

A captivating read is a must have while trying to catch a tan (or in my case a burn). Poolside, by the beach, or in your room, a book is the perfect way to get lost in another world.

This was the first one off of my summer list and I could not put it down until it was finished! The Pact by Jodi Picoult is a novel about a possible suicide pact between two teenagers and the scary depth of their love. A slightly frightening, young love story that makes us question how well we understand relationships, especially amongst teenagers, and just how much stress is needed to break bonds that had seemed to be infinite.

I usually hate love stories. Anything that ends so perfectly just never seems real to me. With The Pact, it was exactly the opposite; a story that started perfect goes on to crumble. I feel like we all know a couple that is this connected or at least seems this perfect, and for me I definitely had a few people in mind while reading. It amazed me to think that two people can love each other to such an extent that it is dangerous. To see how their families deal with the tragedy that unfolds was the moving part, leaving me dying to find out answers.

Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult always gets an A+  in my book, but her fifth novel takes you on an emotional roller coaster of a life time. She creates suspense and tension on sensitive, but real life topics. It’s amazing that she can understand what a seventeen year old male would be thinking as a women in her 40′s. I highly recommend her novels as they are fiction but not so far fetched from our own experiences. And for those who aren’t so big on reading…. four of her books have been made into television movies!

 

 Just don’t forget the sunblock ;)

Marvelous Met Ball Gowns!

These are our top picks from last night’s Met Ball in NYC- the fashion divas were on the prowl! This ladies definitely took risks and made some serious statements. Love it or hate it?

 

Beyonce bares some booty in this FABULOUS number! Where else can she wear this darling dress except a Vogue party? You go girl!

Love the sexy floor length crocodile gown by Tom Ford-  but the hair not so much.

Solange wearing Rachel Roy (who was also her date for the night) AH-mazing…guess it runs in the family

Bruno Mars in Prada…major hottie

Model Jourdan Dunn rocking a white lace Burrberry gown & Azelia Banks..can I have those gloves please?

Hope you liked our top picks, who was your fav?

talent tuesday: krochet kids, “Buy a hat. Change a life.”

Add a comment

Happy talent tuesday! I’m excited to say I was pleasantly intrigued by a Bing commercial that featured a certain business called Krochet Kids.

Here’s their philosophy:

“We provide a job so that women can meet the present needs of their families.

We educate them so that they develop beyond the need for outside aid.

We provide mentorship to help each lady plan a unique and sustainable career path for the future.”

Pretty impressive right? Their products are gorgeous too. If it wasn’t for my previous internship at Eugenia Kim hats and hair accessories, I totally would be purchasing everything they offer!

talent tuesday: food photography

Add a comment

It used to be that when you get food that’s beautifully plated at a restaurant, that you’d just admire it, pick up a fork, and start eating. I am sure Facebook and Twitter users will agree with me that there is way too many bad/ mediocre pictures of food on the internet. I would have to say I’m guilty of the crime as well. However, I’ve been wanting to take a class on food photography since I enjoy both so much. Whoever was the first to combine the two was genius! There are so many great food photographers, but Lara Ferroni is one of my favorite.

mmm

now this is what i call art

yum

eat me!
