Dose nail color feature image

Instagram… Love it or hate it, you can’t deny there are great fashion/art/beauty/life/news images posted to this “instant photo album” app each and everyday. If you haven’t taken the Instagram plunge I suggest you do. It’s a new way to get fun fashion/beauty industry insight as well, which brings me to today’s post.

I follow the Parisian boutique Colette Store, who posted the below image on Instagram announcing the arrival of a new nail colors at their store. The new image was of Jane Schub’s newest nail color collection called “DOSE”.

It’s going to be a (bright) yellow summer

B1 Image1 feature

Aside from a few sporadic days, teasing us with a taste of what summer might become, the sun has yet to put in a noteworthy appearance. Nevertheless, fashion’s finest delivered a variety of very worthy summer collections, with clashing patterns and bold colours taking precedence. One particular colour that strikes a note for this spring/summer is (bright) yellow.

Sickly neon, bitter-sweet lemon, subtle mustard and bold dandelion are all note-worthy shades. Though be warned if, like me, your skin is suffering the trauma of a frost-bitten winter, try wearing yellow accessories as an accent colour. A fluro yellow clutch and stilettos will add interest to a monochrome dress, plus it is an easy way to work two trends in one outfit.

Blue, Melon and Gold!

Wendy Williams look feature

My absolutely favorite color/hue(s) is Blue and the brighter the blue is even better. So last night when I was watching the watching Wendy Williams show, I fell in love with her new look for Spring. She also put on very fun and quirky blue reading glasses and it was perfection!  These “divafied” frames were designed by a guest in the audience and Wendy like them enough to wear them on the show, how cool is that?
