Yay or Nay - Denim Skirts

Working with J.Crew this summer has allowed me to find out what popular and what people are really into. I've noticed a big spike on orders of denim skirts, some cute, some not so much. Whenever I think of denim skirts, I can't help but picture the 1990s and ugly below-your-knee long denim skirts. I personally didn't like them but then I realized how wrong I was! Well, okay half wrong. I still hate the super long denim skirts but what I am growing to love are the knee length, mini, and high waisted denim skirts! You can dress them up girly and feminine or go the complete opposite with edgy 90s grunge! A good quality skirt will help create a hourglass figure as well as offer tummy control.

Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's Day is coming up so soon (Sunday June 16)! Finding the right gift for pop can be really hard and I'm sure he can do without another tie or golf club, am I right? This year, take a moment to think about what Dad likes, what makes him happy, and what he might not get himself but would truly enjoy.

1. Best quality navy gingham shirt; perfect for work and parties.
2. Is your dad still wearing those tacky embarrassing 'dad jeans'? Help the poor guy out by buying him a couple of pairs of classic well fitted jeans. He'll never go back!
3. Soft and comfy PJs are amazing and your dad deserves a pair during those rare relaxing moments.
4. Most men have only one watch they wear in and out but why not offer more variety.
5. Artwork of his passions are a long lasting gift and you're dad will always think of you when he glaces at his piece (a bonus for those dealing with sibling rivalry).
6. Cute but subtle cuff links.
7. Fig and Yarrow Aftershave, soothing, reparative & pore-minimizing spiced infusion of bay leaf, star anise, allspice, juniper berry & cardamom with deep & warming notes of balsamic vanilla, earthy vetiver & leatherish sandalwood. Not only does it smell out of this world but it has healing properties like anti-inflammatory and astringent with the added ability to heal skin damage and stop any bleeding from nicks, calendula is also an exceptional skin healer, protector and soother stimulating collagen synthesis and cell renewal for more vital skin.

Summer Beauty Trends

With summer less than a month away and our temperatures rising, it's time to give thought about the best no mess, no stick, summer beauty trends out there. It's hard to even think about wearing foundation, blush, or lip gloss when you'll be sweating it off in a few hours but it's all good! This season, the trends are carefree, forgiving of the heat and humidity, and so fun to play with so let's have a look starting with the base.

Summer 2013 beauty trends

The thought of wearing full on foundation to the beach is seriously gross! One wipe to the forehead, and your hand is covered in makeup and sweat, not cute. For SPF infused light coverage, go for BB or CC creams. Check out my post  on BB creams and finding the best one for you.

Bronzing all over with that big fluffy brush is almost too summery and so expected. One trend I like for its uniqueness is ditching the all over and go for a peachy, subtle bronzer look, only on the cheekbones. Try this Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless Perfect Bronzer, available at Sephora.

Lipsticks tend to get the cold shoulder during the hot summer days. We go for a light lip gloss which is fine but I don't like the sticky feeling that comes all with it. I'm already feeling stick and gross with the humidity, do I really need it on my lips? Matte pop lips are the answer!! BOLD, matte lips were a stand-out trend at the spring/summer 2013 shows. The velvety matte lip in a summery bright, is still  seasonal, but the finish makes it fresh. You can go a little neon in the middle of the lips for more dimension or shape up your lips for a fuller retro look. How to wear coral lips

Now what about nights? Everyone knows that there's a day and there's a nighttime lipstick and I've got both covered. The day belongs to the bold matte pop lips and the night to the smoldering satin dark berry or cherry. Keep your lips luscious and modern by avoiding shades with chocolate brown undertones, which can give it a 90's feel. 

Which trend are excited about trying? 
I want to try out the lipstick, both pop and dark cherry!

I See Skies Of Blue...

The color sky blue reminds me of not only of Louis Armstrong's rendition of 'What a wonderful world' but of a perfect summer day without a cloud in the sky. The kind of day which you're tempted to play hookie and drive to beach with the top down and your hair whipping around in the wind. This summer, let the blue skies be your inspiration.

If there are clouds playing peek-a-boo with the sun, it's all good. Watching the clouds pass by, changing shapes, can be very peaceful and a sweet way to spend time outside. Play along and show your appreciation to the shade and rain giving clouds by donning this darling print. Aren't the patterns so adorable? I'm obsessed with all the dresses!
