24 Feb

The days are getting longer and the temperatures are rising, its that time of year again- Spring! One of the biggest trends that have hit the runways this Spring season is the back-to-basic black and white look. These two colours are classic  and staples for most women’s wardrobes and when paired together, it can be quite elegant.This trend has stormed runways in all cities and most recently during New York Fashion Week by top designers such as Michael Kors and Oscar Dela Renta. This trend has also appeared in almost all retail stores Spring 2013 collections including affordable fashion stores such as Zara, Forever 21,  H&M and Topshop.

Louis Vuitton  has also followed with the black and White contrast trend as well, however putting a different spin on it with a checkered pattern. Check mate?

My favourite piece that follows this trend can be found at Zara. It  this stripped blouse with pockets that can be paired with black trousers or leggings and a colorful shoe to make the outfit pop.

What are your thoughts on this trend? Yay or Nay?

Metallic Mani!

20 Jul

Hey everyone! Today, I decided to try out the nail trend where you paint your ring finger a different color! If anyone knows the name of this design, please comment below… because I have no idea and I’m pretty sure it has a name (other than “nail trend where you paint your ring finger a different color” hehe). This cute nail idea is great for summer since its playing up a bright orange with a bit of a metallic pop. So lets get to it! ALSO, i would like the apologize in advance for my horrible nail painting job.. I’m no professional!

The polishes that I used to create this look are as follows:

I just use a simple orange polish from the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Collection which is available  at most drugstores, and I also used a gold glitter polish and metallic magnetic (didn’t use it for the magnetic design-just the color) polish from Tivoli.

You don’t have to use the exact same polishes as me but these are just the ones i had at home!
If you are interesting in a good metalic nail polish, check out the new Mirror Metallics Collection from Essie: here.

To create the individual gold metallic nail, I applied the metallic polish on my ring finger of both hands. After the first coat of the metallic polish dried, I went over it with the gold glitter polish to add a bit of sparkle.

That’s all it took to get this cute nail design. I hope you enjoyed my quick take on this nail trend and don’t forget to Like/Comment/ and Follow for more beauty tips!

Trend Alert: Collared Necklace!

25 Jun

Hey everyone! Recently I have been spotting collared/bib statement necklaces all over the place and I personally love this trend. An accessory like this can totally bring together a whole outfit and add that extra little something in order to make the outfit complete.

A few celebrites like Kylie Jenner have been spotted sporting this new trend:

Kylie’s gold collared necklace brings together her simple outfit and adds an extra edge to her peach blazer.

A necklace similar to Kylie’s can be found here.

These collared necklaces can be found in a bunch of different styles and designs. Since this trend can be found in such a variety of different designs, it is simple to find a style collared necklace that best matches your personal style. They can come  in leather, beaded, fringe, metallic, sequinned and more.

These are just some of my personal favourites that I have found online!
