Handbag Delight: Mustard

Mustard is the new yellow…for now. Until lemon comes in and sweeps us off our feet this summer. If you would’ve tried to get to wear this color as a teenager I would’ve responded with a big fat NO! I was not adventurous at all. I do know that this color is catching my eye right now. It’s the right amount of pop for any outfit. It’s vibrant without being overwhelming. Does that make sense? LOL…whatever. I like it. How about you? Are you loving mustard?

National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

Hey my loves! I’m back from my conference and I can’t wait to share this with you. This week is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDA). You know I can’t stress how important positive body image and self-acceptance is. I found out today, that 24 million Americans are affected by eating disorders. This includes Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorder. This breaks my heart. During this week, I’m participating in spreading awareness. As part of this, you’ll see me tweet some startling facts, like today. Read more

Review: SOHO’s 4-Piece Train Case

Guess who loves their SOHO 4-Piece Train Case? Meeeeee! Do you want to know why I love it? Well…let me tell you why. I travel a few times a month and taking my make up with me has kind of been a hassle. I can’t take my heavy train case with me when I’m flying. It weighs too much. But, I can take this with me. It’s so easy to pack!

It’s part of their cosmetic bag collection. It’s a soft train case and it’s so awesome! Inside the case there are three separate organizable cases. I used it when I went to Las Vegas and it really came in handy. All my make up fit and then some. I haven’t had to clean it yet, but it’s seems like it’s easy to clean. And don’t worry about spending too much on this, it’s only $17.99. Sounds good to me!


Carmakoma Wish List

I’ve been eyeing the Danish brand Carmakoma lately. OK…I’ve always had my eye on them. Ever since I saw their latest video starring one of my favorite models and friend Fluvia, I kind of want everything. I couldn’t help but create a wish list. Their line definitely has that classic European style. I miss that. I seriously can’t pick just one piece. So, if you want to buy me anything please feel free. LOL!


Bauble Alert: Cosmic Thread

Cosmic Thread is bringing handmade geometric shaped jewelry to another level. I discovered them during MAGIC’s Pool Tradeshow and instantly was in awe.

The collection experiments with the fusion of synthetic and reclaimed organic materialsinto highly conceptual designs. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted with a forward thinking focus on the future,manifesting the inspiration of space into wearable geometry.

Beauty Buzz: L’Oreal Paris EverCreme Hair Care

L’Oreal Paris has done it again…winning me over with the EverCreme hair care collection. This is especially for you ladies out there that are tired of fighting with dry hair. You know who you are.

This collection stands out because it’s a Sulfate-Free Moisture System. If you’re like me, then you probably didn’t know that sulfates are very harsh on your hair and can leave the fibers dry, dull, lifeless, and weak. It’s also free of heavy waxes that can coat your hair and weigh it down. It’s also Paraben-Free (yay!) and 100% Vegan.

I’ve been using the EverCreme Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner for two weeks now. I honestly didn’t think I’d be able to tell a difference in my hair, but I was so wrong. My hair not only feels soft and looks shiny, but it instantly felt lighter. It was a crazy feeling. I never noticed how weighed down my hair felt before.

I’m not a fan of the vanilla, amber, and cedar wood scent, but I’m picky about that. It doesn’t smell bad or anything, I just love hair products that smell clean or fruity. And it doesn’t lather up as much either. Hmmm…maybe that’s what weighs our hair down too? OK…I’m not sure about that, but it’s something to think about.

Despite me being extra picky (LOL), I really like this shampoo and conditioner. It’s caught my attention and if you’re curious, I’d really recommend trying it.


Handbag Delight: Stripes

Looking at handbags online is not easy. I thought it would be, because it’s not like looking at them in a store. I was wrong…I want them all. And as you can see, I’m kind of in a stripe mood right now.  I’ve seen people wearing them like crazy. But, I’d like to be a twist on it and go with a striped clutch or handbag.

What do you think? Are stripes for you?

MAGIC, Project, and Pool Tradeshow Photos

Here are the rest of my photos from MAGIC, Project, and the Pool Tradeshow. Like I had said before, these spaces were so huge! There was such an array of clothes and accessories. Once again, we didn’t get to see everything.

MAGIC and Project were home to fashion brands, while the Pool Tradeshow was more of the indie designers and brands. It was amazing. Ivory ( and I had a chance to chat with the ladies over at Nation LTD. They’re really passionate about their plus pieces that you can find at Nordstrom. That’s very inspiring! I also fell in love with the fringe handbags from Ember Skye at Project. I loved the colors!

And I died over the jewelry from Cosmic Thread  and Designs by Alicia P. at the Pool Tradeshow. The jewelry was very unique! Loved it.  I had such an amazing time and I can’t wait for my next WWDMAGIC visit!







MAGIC’s FN Platform: Part 2

Here are more photos from MAGIC’s FN Platform. I don’t think you ladies understand how many shoes there were! We didn’t even cover the entire thing. I know my feet would’ve of been dead at the end of that day!

I was most impressed with Betsey Johnson and Charles Whittington. Of course I always love a fun shoe like Betsey Johnson, but I was loving the double stiletto by Charles Whittington. Isn’t it cool? It’s trademarked people…so don’t try to steal it! Just love it!
