The holidays have passed, but the cold, winter weather continues and many (including myself) are craving some sunshine. So if you're heading on holiday, or already live in the sunshine, it's time to start stocking up on some new swimwear.

I recently made a purchase with Zaful. I actually had never heard of the brand until Youtuber, Allana Davison said she bought some suits from Zaful in a recent video. 

After watching the video, Zaful ads haunted my every click until I finally check out their website. I bought two swimsuits, each of them under $15. Super cheap, but I was scared to see them in person. Turns out, they're so cute and feel really nice. They looked just like the image. 

I really recommend checking them out if you don't want to drop a lot of cash for swimwear!

The Best Dressed: Golden Globes 2019

The Golden Globes were this past Sunday, and with award shows losing their spark it's best that we focus on the red carpet. This year the stars were sparkling down the red carpet with glitter and shine being a key trend. 

Bohemain Rhapsody's leading lady, Lucy Boynton, stole the show in my opinion with this Celine by Hedi Slimane dress and Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

Saoirse Ronan stunned in Gucci

Constance Wu looked like an actual dream in custom Vera Wang.

Nicole Kidman and Thadie Newton both shining in Michael Kors Collection.

Emma Stone looking very chic in Louis Vuitton

Rachel Weisz in Celine by Hedi Slimane and Cartier jewelry.

Shoutout to Timothée Chalamet for breaking the internet with his Louis Vuitton sparkly harness ensemble by Virgil Abloh and Cartier jewelry.

Amber Heard and Emmy Rossum looking like royalty in their Monique Lhuillier dresses.

Rosamund Pike sticking with her go-to brand, Givenchy, and I'm here for it.

Loved Kiki Layne in Dior Haute Couture and Bulgari jewelry.

Irina Shayk in Versace and Bradley Cooper in Gucci.

Emily Blunt in custom Alexander McQueen.

Gemma Chan always stuns in Valentino Haute Couture and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Charlize Theron in Dior Haute Couture and Bulgari jewelry.

Rami Malek in Givenchy and Cartier jewelry.

Lastly, Julia Roberts killing it in Stella McCartney.

Can't wait to see what else the award season has to offer style-wise!

Hello 2019

Hello 2019

When reading about some of the fashion predictions for the new year, I came across a couple of trends that I'm hoping really make a bang in 2019. I've seen different trends that are expected based on the catwalks and what is currently being sold, but here are my three favorites that are expected to do well this year.

1. Feathers
They're pretty, dainty and feminine. They remind me of a ballerina in Swan Lake. My wish for this trend is that it sticks around and stays faux.

2. Designer Logos
They're fun, they're cool. I mean you spend enough money on designer things that you might as well show it off.

3. Sexy Mini-Dresses
I love the fact that skimpy dresses are on it's way back to cool. With a pair of strappy sandals, mini-dresses can make your legs look miles long. 


Let us know what you'll be wearing in 2019.

Holiday Packing

Thursday, December 20, 2018

Holiday Packing
Most people pack their bags and take a little break from work, and life, for the holidays.
If you're going on a bit of vacay, I have a few things that you need to add to your packing list. 
If you're heading up north and expecting a White Christmas, you're definitely going to need to keep your skin hydrated. Heavy facial and body lotions are a necessity! This is my first winter living away from Miami, and in the actual cold, so I'm quickly learning how to keep my skin from drying out in the winter air.
Now, if you're heading to a more tropical destination... you're going to probably want a lighter moisturizer. In the extreme heat and humidity, it's nice to go with lighter skincare and makeup. You should also pack your favorite spritz to help cool off while soaking up the sun at the beach!

For me, packing makeup is the most difficult part, but I think it's best to keep everything simple and just pack a popping lip color.
If you're hitting the slopes for your holiday, I think a red is a nice color for all your Instagram pictures in the snow.

Lighter lip formulations are great for the Tropics. It's so hot that you don't want to add anymore discomfort to yourself with a heavy, sticky lipstick or gloss. I recommend lip balms for the beach.
It's also fun to wear a juicy, bright color!

Highlighter and plenty of sparkle is key to any holiday look. I like silvers and cool tone shimmers for any icy look and warmer tones and golds for a year-round golden goddess look.
Now, a few things that are must-haves for any trip...
plenty of lip balm!

and your favorite skincare! Airplanes, and traveling in general, are hard on your skin so I have a travel size of the very best skincare to take a long with me.

Enjoy your holiday!

RIP Oribe

RIP Oribe

A legend in the beauty industry, Oribe Canales, has passed away this weekend. He was a hairdresser for the stars and changed the beauty industry with his line of Oribe hair products. In 1976, Oribe moved to New York City. It was while working at the Garren at the Plaza salon that Oribe received his first editorial credit, from the magazine GQ. He then started working with photographer Steven Meisel and makeup artist François Nars. In 1987, Oribe established his first salon in New York City's Upper West Side.

Oribe styled models' hair at fashion shows for fashion houses such as Versace, Thierry Mugler, Calvin Klein, and Chanel. 

With the rise of supermodels in the 90s he really helped define a generation of hair with models such as Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and Linda Evangelista. 
His hair products are such a luxury and they work amazingly! I will forever re-purchase his Dry Texturizing Spray that doubles has a hairspray and dry shampoo (and the smell is HEAVENLY).
In honor of Oribe, Christy Turlington posted these gorgeous photos of them together during her wedding day in 2003.
