Whether it’s a plaid, tartan or gingham print, checks are one of the hottest trends of the Fall 2017. It all started with the check blazer, that we have spotted on so many street-stylers during the fashion weeks this Fall. Understandably, because it’s the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe into Fall, and it looks just as good for the office or styled with jeans. Then came the check pants, suits, coats, skirts, jackets…in as many designs, colors and patterns as you can hope for!
Unfortunately, the trend is so popular that most items have sold out immediately (like models from Zara, Anine Bing, Isabel Marant or Tibi). However, Mango has a GREAT selection of affordable, super trendy check items, and most importantly still has most sizes in stock! Hurry up if you want to get your hands on them!
Like most girls, owning a Chanel bag is a dream that I currently can’t afford, and I am usually not very comfortable with buying pre-owned luxury goods on the web… however I recently discovered and partnered with Trendlee, a premier destination for pre-owned luxury handbags online. Trendlee democratizes luxury by sourcing and acquiring designer handbags, checking their authenticity and making them available online at high discounts compared to retail prices. And cherry on top, they even offer special financing (no payments, and no interest on all purchases over $199 if paid in full in six months).
What is IFCHIC?
I discovered IFCHIC in January, when I was looking for a Janessa Leone hat for my trip to Tulum.
IFCHIC is an online fashion site, with a curated selection of contemporary, edgy designer brands, such as Tibi, Iro, Carven, M.i.h. Jeans…
When it comes to swimwear, I am more of a one piece swimsuit gal. I love its classy look and the fact that I can wear it after the beach like a bodysuit, with denim shorts, and feel dressed. But my dilemma is that I never find the right design for a reasonable price.
You might not be aware of it, but this tiny silicone sponge is shaking up the beauty sphere. Wondering why? Cosmetic companies and makeup artists have been telling us for years to apply our skincare and makeup with brushes or foam sponges. It’s supposed to give your foundation a flawless finish, make it look more even and keep all the oils and bacteria from your fingers from clogging your pores. This is assuming that you clean your brush/sponge regularly and let it dry completely before you reuse it. Let’s face it, I barely have time to apply my makeup (and I am a little lazy), so this is too much of a commitment for me.
Then I had the opportunity to try the Kissbobo Silicone Makeup Sponge, and after 2 weeks of using it, here are 5 reasons why you should swap out your fingers/foam sponge/brush for it:
We’re getting more and more personal on the blog this week! After this post, in which I shared my hesitation about trying fillers (still thinking about it!), I would like to discuss a topic that is taboo for a lot of women: plastic surgery.
I am not going to lie to you: since I had my kid almost 3 years ago my skin changed, and not in a good way. Bye bye plumped and glowing skin from my 20’s, and welcome dark circles, dull complexion, and fine lines. Oh, and let’s not forget about the lion’s wrinkle, the one that automatically appears when you become a mother, because you won’t stop frowning and worrying about them from the moment they’re born until…well you just won’t stop !
I thought of trying fillers, it’s true….especially since I moved to Los Angeles, where injections are way more common on young women (yes, I am still considering myself as young at 32…am I right ?) than in Europe (I am French). But before I jump into it, one of my blogger friends recommended a non-invasive treatment, dispensed at Parfaire Aesthetics in Pasadena : the Silk Peel Facial.
What do you think of the tropical trend? I am usually not a big fan of colorful outfits, but the tropical print has these holiday vibes that instantly put me in a good mood. Plus it’s kind of kitsch, retro and super feminine! You can find all kinds of tropical fashion items this season: off the shoulder tops, dresses, blouses…but my favourite are culottes or jumpsuits. I’ve listed below my 10 favorite tropical pieces to shop for the summer:
