My monthly subscription from Beauty Box 5 arrived and I was pleased to receive all of the goodies in this month’s box.
The company sent over Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads, Rockstar Nail Polish, Elizabeth Mott Mascara, H20 Plus Spa Hand & Nail Cream, and John Frieda Shampoo/Conditioner.
I was super excited to use the Elizabeth Mott Mascara because I actually needed to purchase a new tube, so my subscription box came right on time. And the product lived up to my expectation: no clumps, goes on smooth, and wears well through out the day.
The Rockstar Nail Polish was actually one of the first items that caught my attention due to my love of the color pink…the nail sprinkles and I am excited to have my “caviar” nails done!
And of course, I welcome receiving any new hand cream because there’s so much dry air this season. To sum it up, I am enjoying my subscription and will post an updated photo of the nail polish once I have my weekly manicure.
While the Southern Hemisphere is enjoying record warmth, here in New York we are battling bitter cold! Our fans below the Equator are enjoying their Heather Blond Resortwear by the pool or on the beach, but just because it is winter up north doesn't mean you can't enjoy your all-eyes-on-you fabulous Heather Blond! Yes, whether it is Moscow or Madagascar, resortwear can be worn anywhere!
Since it's been proven that bright colors and prints can lift you out of the doldrums of the dark, cold winter, this is the perfect time to rock your Heather Blond Premium Resortwear! The trick to wearing your kaftans and tunics in the cold is layering. By using your existing wardrobe basics you can create a fun and fashionable wardrobe that won't break the bank!
Here are some of our stylist's tips:
1. Leggings and skinny jeans – a stylish neutral base to contrast color and texture
2. Scarves – trendy and oh-so-warm!!
3. Layering Knits – Cozy cardigans for brunch with the ladies, chic blazers for running around town
So while it maybe cold and snowy in Chicago, before you head off to that warm escape to Punta Del Este, you can wear your favorite kaftan to brunch in the city, hop on a plane and be ready to hit the beaches when you get there!
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away. Women have plenty of options to dress up for the occasion but men can find it challenging to choose the right outfit and style for the day of Cupid's arrow.
And it’s quite important to dress right because if you end up being a fashion disaster, it will become difficult to woo her and you can become a victim of low self-esteem. That’s the last thing you would want to happen on V-Day.
The following clothing tips will make sure that you appear dapper and full of confidence:
The cold isn’t going away anytime soon, so you will need a sweater. Go with the one that is thin in texture, yet warm at the same time. Mock neck is a classic that will look flattering on you and boost your appearance, regardless of whether you complement it with a pair of jeans or formal dress pants.
The other option is the classic V-neck sweater that will make you appear relaxed and fashionable at the same time. You can wear it over a polo and dress pants or over a pair of jeans and t-shirt. As for the colors, choose darker hues such as blue, purple and brown.
You want to avoid too many accessories on this day. Possible options include wrist watches and mens canvas belts, which has a nice cotton canvas webbing. Both of these additions can redefine your style and highlight your formal or casual outfit.
If you are going to be dining at a restaurant, make sure you go with a fashionable wallet. Perhaps you can go with one made out of smooth or textured fur with contrasting prints inside, as it falls in the latest wallet trends for 2014.
Avoid wearing square-toe shoes because they are out of fashion and select pointed shoes (black lace-ups work well) as they are trendy and work with both casual and formal outfits. But if you want to go with leather, select a couture, slim kind or lace-ups that feature a chunky sole. Both of them will complement trim-cut pants as well as a pair of skinny jeans.
You can also select loafers as they are a versatile option and have been going strong for the last few seasons. The latest designs include tassels and other elegant essentials and some of them include treaded soles in thick material.
Denim was said to appear in the 15th Century in the closing days of the Medieval Age, which falls in line with the origination of Valentine’s Day. So feel free to go with a faded vintage style or a classic straight cut if you are going to wear color-pop lace-up shoes.
You can even go with printed pants below formal upper attire and in case you do, keep it minimal and don’t compromise on the tailoring – you don’t want to appear as if you’re wearing PJs.
Last but not the least, take care of your hairstyle: a neat look is the most preferable but you can also try on wavy and side styles depending on your outfit. Remember that a dapper hairdo can be a turn-on for your date.
And if you have a hard time in deciding the style that would go with your outfit, feel free to book an appointment at a salon. This can turn out to be a good option as your hair might need some trimming to adapt to a certain style.
Winters are perfect for letting the flavors of fashion flow. However, the cold could force you to shut the creativity out to ensure that you stay warm enough. Thankfully, you have this quick guide to awesome winter clothing.
Long jackets with jeans – You could have easily guessed it. No guide on winter clothing can afford to leave out this time tested and future proof style. If you are not particularly impressed with the fact that your envious curves get hidden because of the long jacket, then try leaving the front of the jacket open and using a string belt to let great shapes and curves dazzle everybody.
Short jacket with long boots to stay and look hot in winters – This is a timeless combination. Short jackets will never be out of fashion, and if you could throw in a bit of smart formals, you are in for a killer look this winter. A snug formal trouser that matches your short jacket would definitely make you stand apart from the routine dressers. Not only is such a style easy to carry off, it will also let you wear your style statements to work every day, without attracting raised eyebrows.
Trend it up with trench coats – The trendy uptown girl who always seems to get all the boys’ attention knows how to match things up in the winters. It’s time you learned some tricks and hit the hot charts of all the guys in the neighborhood and college. Not only will your trench coat give you more height, it will also lend elegance to your personality. Grab a cool scarf from a trendy online apparel store and wrap it around your neck with its ends dropping on the bosom of the coat. Then, your shiny shoes will seal the deal and give you the smart and stylish look you always craved for. Not to mention, the trench coat keep the cold away!
Tees and hoodies – If jackets and coats are not for you, then you can take the layering route to winter dressing. Get a plain colored top and layer a deep neck tee over it. Then, grab a hoodie and leave it half unzipped. Not only will you keep the cold away, but also will enjoy light clothing as compared to the heavy jackets that can sometimes weight you down. You’ll have many trendy hoodies up for grab at online fashion destinations like Milanoo.
Accessorize yourself up – Yes, you could put up a remarkable different outlook every day of the week if you know how to play it smart with your accessories. Even if you have just your heavy grey coat to provide you the warmth you need while having fun outdoors with your pals, then also your accessories will save the day for you. Depend on big and bright handbags to give you a new shade every day. Then, there are so many great colors in which you can find some awesome winter boots. With different bags and boots combining to lend you newer colors every day, your winters will be warm and stylish, and that’s what you want!
