The Foundation Of A Fashionista!

Ever since I can remember, I was a lover of all things beautiful and always had a sense of style. I was the one who stood out in front of the crowd, whether at church or a birthday party or any event. Although very young, I always loved various vintage styles, sequins, and feathers. I loved black and white Hollywood classics of flashy fashions and striking styles.

Discovering Your Personal Style

Recently, I’ve added style photos to my social media feed.  I wanted to share my personal style, which is categorized as chic and modern.

This leads me to the topic for the blog post. How can someone discover his or her personal style? Essentially it’s about self-awareness and understanding your clothing preferences. The definition of style is, “a distinctive appearance, typically determined by the principles according to which something is designed.”

The first step to discovering your personal style is identifying a style icon. Do you prefer the total appearance of Lady Gaga or Michelle Obama?  Grab a few magazines and create a stylebook.

The next action is to visit your closet and examine pieces you have worn on numerous occasions.  This could be a fedora hat or cardigan sweater.  Are those items complimenting your features and body type (circle, triangle, hourglass, rectangle)?

Consider your lifestyle and occupation when curating your wardrobe.  A corporate executive should invest in a high quality suit; same concept applies for weekly Pilates sessions.

Accessories are the best assets for discovering your personal style.  They allow you to change a look without purchasing new clothing.  A classic wristwatch can upgrade an inexpensive blouse.

Ultimately, it’s about feeling great and presenting yourself in a positive manner!

Quick Wardrobe Tips:

  •  Invest in alterations for ill-fitting items
  •  Use the dry-cleaners sparingly – can damage clothing fibers
  •  Spend extra money on work shoes, blazers, jeans, bras, suiting, and outerwear
  •  Find unique pieces at consignment or thrift shops




  1. new and unusual or experimental ideas, especially in the arts, or the people introducing them.


This was the theme for Season 23, Ep 5 of America’s Next Top Model.  According to the show, “Law Roach drops in on the girls to discuss the importance of personal style. Celebrity designer Nicola Formichetti takes the models out of their comfort zones and into the world of avant-garde fashion.”

There was the usual drama between contestants from wardrobe critiquing to personality clashes. Kyle, Giah, and Krislian struggled during the competition; wearing an uncomfortable costume (platform heels.)

Giah was asked to leave the competition due to her photos.  Panelist encouraged her to continue pursuing her dreams!

Be Social! Using Facebook To Get More Blog Traffic

So, you’ve started a blog. Whether you’re looking to make a career out of it like me, or you just want to try your hand at a new creative outlet, you’re going to want to know that people are reading some of your work. These days, there are many great ways you can leverage Facebook to drive traffic to your blog. Here are just a few…

Make Your Images Big and Clear

It’s been shown time and time again that Facebook posts with images get far more engagement than posts without them. Make sure that all of the images you post are large, prominent and clear, and you’re sure to have much more success in terms of likes, shares, and ultimately traffic! As you try out different images, keep looking at your insights, the metrics from your blog, and any other monitoring resources you can get your hands on, in order to gauge how your target market are responding. Soon enough, you’ll start to notice patterns, and will be able to pin down a certain kind of image which grabs your audience’s attention perfectly. You should keep the same high standards in mind when it comes to your profile picture, cover photo, and so on. It may be worth downloading a Facebook cover photo maker and getting acquainted with its features.

Keep Updates Short and Sweet

On your blog, there’s no limit to how long you can make articles. As long as the bulk of it is interesting and useful to your audience, go ahead and turn a 500-word post into a 2000-word feature! However, when you’re trying to use Facebook to drive your customers to these articles, I recommend sticking to short, sweet (or funny or witty) posts which are easily digestible to anyone who happens to be scanning your page. Updates like this are the best way to generate engagement on Facebook, and instigate more click-throughs. Ideally, you should be keeping your updates down to one sentence, and under 150 characters. These days, your average consumer is using Facebook in little windows throughout the day, rather than setting a couple of hours aside for it in the evenings. This means that short, snappy updates that are easy to take in are the best tools for stimulating engagement.

Ask the Audience

Questions naturally make you think of response, don’t you agree? Your audience will want to let their opinions be known, so opening up the floor to them with posts headed by a question is a hugely effective way to encourage engagement. From your customers’ personal opinion on something, to simple trivia to fill-the-blank style posts, I’m sure there are all kinds of questions you could ask to capture your target market’s attention and ultimately drive traffic to your blog. Like all of your posts, I recommend keeping these questions short and sweet. Make sure they’re phrased in a way that’s going to generate instant interest from your ideal customer. Using the word “you” is always an easy way to do this! It’s also important not to give too much away, and make your audience curious enough to click.

Infusium’s Golden Globes Looks – Julia Louis-Dreyfus & Connie Britton

Infusium is excited to celebrate this year’s Golden Globes with Julia Louis-Dreyfus AND Connie Britton, donning their next generation of Infusium products that transform hair heath with every use.

Renowned celebrity stylist, Matthew Monson (@matthewmonzon), worked his magic for Best Actress in a Comedy nominee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ effortlessly chic look; while Connie Britton’s gorgeous natural waves were created by celebrity stylist, Enzo Angileri (@enzoangileri). Both stylists used Infusium to ensure their hair stayed healthy during and even after their struts on the red-carpet.


  • For Julia Louis Dreyfus’ look tonight I wanted her hair to look soft, shiny and stunning.
  • First, I washed and conditioned her hair with the Infusium Repair + Renew Shampoo and Conditioner.
  • Next, to protect her hair from any damage, I sprayed Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-In Treatment from mid shaft through the ends combing through with a wide toothcomb.
  • Then I took a quarter size amount of Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-In Crème emulsified in my hands, and worked through the last 3 inches of the hair to help eliminate frizz and flyaways.
  • I started drying her hair using just my hands, and lifting her strands for texture and root volume. After it was half way dry, I incorporated a round brush to finish and create even more volume.
  • To keep with Julia’s signature style, I created a strong center part with a tailcomb. Then separated her hair into large sections, and starting curling using a large barrel iron for a more tousled feeling.
  • To finish the look, I used the Infusium Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum to smooth over the ends and give a bit more definition to the hair.


  • I wanted Connie’s style to look elegant, shiny and smooth.
  • I started by washing and conditioning her hair with the Infusium Repair + Renew Shampoo and Conditioner.
  • While her hair was still wet, I parted the hair down the middle and then sprayed Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-In Treatment to the ends of her hair.
  • Then I sectioned her hair into about 20 sections and starting drying with a round brush. After, I pinned each section up like a roller and let it set for about 5 minutes for volume and natural wave. I took out the pins and brushed her hair so the waves would loosen.
  • Starting from the back of the head, I used a 1.5 inch curling iron and began curling the hair to accentuate the soft waves.
  • When finished, I lightly brushed it out again for that natural look. I applied the Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum at the top of her head, near her part to avoid fly aways!

Blair Eadie: Pronovias’ 2017 American It Bride

PRONOVIAS, the leading Company in the world of wedding dresses, moves full speed ahead with its successful digital project, #PronoviasItBrides,  conceived with the purpose of inspiring all future brides to say “I do” while wearing  their dream dress that enhances one’s individual style and personality.

Thanks to the success of the project, Pronovias plans to support it further as it believes in the importance of uniting the tradition of the Spanish company with the most influential digital ambassadors, creating relationships with the best-known and loved faces in social media. Last year, Pronovias worked with American influencers Whitney Port, Danielle Bernstein, Rumi Neely, and Jennifer Grace to head the It Bride campaign in the USA. This year, the American face of the Atelier Pronovias 2017 Collection is NYC-based Blair Eadie, author of the hit fashion blog, Atlantic-Pacific.

With a total social media following of over 1.5 million followers, Eadie was an obvious choice for the bridal firm; she knows how to effectively connect with her audience, creating authentic content and always making sure her posts give her followers an added value. Moreover, Eadie’s personal fashion aesthetic was an ideal match for Pronovias, taking ultra-feminine bridal gowns and giving them her unique NYC-chic twist.

Eadie wore a total of 6 gowns during the New York City photo shoot, which included backdrops of the iconic New York City Public Library, mid-town Manhattan traffic, and a scenic rooftop in Brooklyn. Out and about in the big apple was the perfect location for this shoot, showcasing how the fast pace of today’s world can still pause for a moment to capture beauty and celebrate ever-evolving bridal style.

As both parties of the collaboration begin to publish the photos and video from the #PronoviasItBridesshoot, the goal is that Eadie’s personal style shines through and brides-to-be everywhere are inspired with the fresh, fashion-forward finished product.

The new Atelier PRONOVIAS 2017 Collection, designed by Hervé Moreau, the firm’s creative director, reflects contemporary elegance, making beauty and comfort possible for all brides.  The collection works with materials such as crepe, Mikado silk, and ethereal, translucent gauze, including Valentina gauze.
