Fall/Spring 2013 Headscarfs

I am in LOVE with headscarfs! This is my go – to hair accessory when I just can’t get it together with my strands.  Especially as a mom, I need something that’s quick, sleek, and cute!

 

 

Beauty at Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013

Thank goodness one of MY favorite blogs (Fashioninsing.com) was able to capture the essence of how to wear this accessory.  And what’s really fantastic about the trend, is that you can find a headscarf anywhere, with prices ranging from $1.00 to over $50.00.

 

Simply Gorgeous!

For me, knowing how to properly tie a headscarf is pretty simple.  This is a trick I learned at an early age to help maintain my hair.  But there are also moments when I like to wear my scarf in a more stylish manner such as underneath a hat, in the form of a headband, or with over-sized sunglasses and hoop earrings.

 

 

Classic and Regal!

Either way, the headscarf is a great trend for Fall 2012 and Spring 2013!  Read more at Fashionising.com

Drugstore Beauty Products: The Editor’s Obsession

As a mom, I’m constantly running to the drugstore to pick up something.  Of course while I’m  shopping I will come across the standard drugstore items such as cleaning solutions and soap, but I can’t resist the urge to check out what’s new on the beauty products aisle.

The reason I love drugstore, beauty products is because they are generally inexpensive which means there’s no loss in trying something new.  But most importantly, the products are good quality and in line with the latest trends as it relates to the beauty industry.  Most products range from makeup, hair care, skin, nails, eyebrows, lashes, and even perfume!   And what’s really great is that local drugstores will run a sale on select items for the week to make room for something new (and to make a profit.)

Lastly, if you stop by the beauty aisle during the holiday season most stores have a new shipment of makeup kits (for the cheap price of $10.00) or small stocking stuffers such as cosmetics bags or manicure kits for $5.00.   For me, shopping in the local drugstore is truly the ultimate guilty pleasure!

Alicia Keys is On Fire

Alicia Keys is back and she’s letting us know how she feels!  The title of her new album, “Girl on Fire” was the inspiration for her SEXY new photo.  Normally, Alicia has a very laid back style but today she’s letting us know that she’s a mom, married, and all the way “grown up!”

As we all know, sheer panels are the latest trend when selecting a little black dress. It’s the perfect combination of sophistication with a touch of vamp. Any fashionista can find a similiar design at a local retailer.

Take a look at Alicia Keys, not only wearing the latest trend, but looking stunning with slick back hair and a glamorous red lip.  Can we say, WOW!
