Featured Post – Summer Gems Jewelry: The Colors Of Summer In Full Swing!

What would summer be without the ability to show some skin and go even further and decorate that skin on show with some fabulous accessories! Beach ready doesn’t need to mean sans jewelry either. Summer is a time when we can flaunt our natural colors and enhance our glow with complimentary colors, wherever the summer takes us.

I absolutely love mirroring the natural hues of the season in the jewelry that I wear. Think Tequila sunrises & the Caribbean like this floral bangle from Antik Batik! When wearing busy florals, be sure to choose an outfit that has solid colors and let the bangle be the focal point of pattern & color.

I was doing a work experience role with a media agency and at the same time rigorously applying for other permanent role, when I came across a tweet about Bracher Emden looking to assist their press and publicity Continue Reading

Blocking sun in style!

Mercury is soaring; it is not safe to let those rays hit your beautiful eyes. Yes! This post is all about sunglasses; I love them! Not only do they protect your eyes against the sun, but they are also a fabulous accessory. However, one must not forget that it is essential that the sunglasses that they choose also serve the primary purpose of blocking the harmful rays of the sun.

Nevertheless, if you have been staying up-to-date with the latest styles and trends pertaining to clothing and accessories, why leave the eyewear behind.

The shapes, sizes and styles of sunglasses have been evolving over the years but some of the classic ones like aviators never go out of fashion.

One of the big trends this season is the quirky shapes, which much to my amusement is doing amazingly well. There are all sorts of strange shapes likes oval, hearts, flowers, and even diamond. The designers are doing their Continue Reading

Trick feature image

Prada’s gift book for 2012 was recently released, and I cannot wait to get my hands on any of the little charms they call “tricks”.

These “tricks” are collectable items to hook onto your Prada bags.  I can’t even pick which one I like the best, for now it’s the snake, but every time I look at them it changes!! They all even have names!!

Trick Trina and Trick Veronica

 

Trick Ax and Trick Joe

 

Trick Igor and Trick Rhyna

 

Trick Zaza

 

Trick Mimi

 

Trick Clio, Trick Medea, and Trick Iorio

I will admit that they do remind me a little of tamagotchis or the Hello Kitty plastic charms, from the 90’s, but they are showing how Prada has a sense of humor when they come to fashion.

Even though I LOVE these and want one so so bad, Prada is definitely marketing their products to even younger teens than ever before.  I remember in early high school when the coolest thing to get for Christmas was a designer bag. I predict that this year for Christmas younger girls, late middle school and early high school, having not only a Prada bag on their lists but these loveable bears as well!
