Beauty – Long Sleek Hair

Beauty – Long Sleek Hair: Long and shiny locks are perfect for this time of year. There is something classically beautiful and feminine about this beauty look that we adore. Think of Olivia Palermo, Mila Kunis or Jennifer Aniston as the ideal celebrity inspiration. While there is a little more involved than other quick-fix hairstyles such as the top knot, we believe it is worth the extra effort! If you’re unsure how to recreate this super popular hairstyle, we have five simple steps to help you achieve the look.

{Long Sleek Hair In 5 Easy Steps}


1. Begin by washing your hair with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner.
2. Apply a small amount of anti-frizz serum to your hair.
3. Using a flat paddle brush, blow dry your hair on medium heat until dry.
4. Using a ceramic hair straightener, flat iron your hair straight (We adore the GHD!)
5. Finish by running a tiny amount of finishing oil through your ends. Voilà! Beautifully straight and shiny hair.

Must Have – Messenger Bag

Must Have – Messenger Bag: You know how much we love an accessory that is as practical as it is chic.  That is why we are pausing for a moment to consider all that is brilliant about the messenger bag.  Great for travelling to other countries as your valuables remain safely out of reach, and the different compartments ensure the contents of your bag always remain in order. This is one piece of arm candy that is wise to invest in!  A messenger bag looks fantastic in classic black, however we also adore a bold color or pattern for an instant statement maker. We’ve been on the lookout for our favorite versions of this practical and stylish accessory. Tell us, which color messenger would you most like to have in your bag collection?

Iconic Item – The Tulle Skirt

Iconic Item – The Tulle Skirt: Ever since Carrie Bradshaw graced our screens in the opening credits of Sex and The City, the tulle skirt has become somewhat immortalised into fashion history.  Impossibly feminine, a tulle skirt has us dreaming of ballerinas and everything girly.  Allow the tutu to be the star of your ensemble by pairing it with a basic tee or turtleneck.  We also adore the contrast of a leather jacket if the weather calls for it.  One thing is for certain, whichever way you style it, you can be sure you’ll be making a memorable statement.  We’ve been searching high and low for our favorite tutu looks for inspiration.  Tell us, which is your favorite combination?

Color Me – Burgundy

Color Me – Burgundy: The deep wine color that is perfect for this time of year, a burgundy shade is dark, mysterious and elegant all in one.  This classic color is warming and regal and looks gorgeous as a statement piece – a felt fedora, a feathered jacket or a pair of suede heels. We particularly adore this color when showcased in a feminine dress or billowing blouse. We have been collecting some burgundy beauties for inspiration.

Monday Edit – 5 Fab Favorites

Monday Edit – 5 Fab Favorites: What a week! We’ve loved the fashion we have spotted around the blogosphere these past few days and found it difficult, as always, to select only five.  We begin with Tuula looking ethereal in a white lasercut shift dress paired with a beaded statement clutch.  Viva Luxury re-defined casual cool in a denim-on-denim ensemble that appeared completely effortless and completely chic.  We adore Corals and Cognacs in a sweet and simple red and pink combination on the streets of Paris and thank Queen of Jet Lags for styling at outfit that is all about texture and warmth.  Last, but certainly not least, we have Atlantic Pacific in an eclectic combination of color and print that is quirky yet refined.  Hope you’ve enjoyed the round-up as much as we enjoyed the selection process! Tell us, which outfit would you choose to have hanging in your closet?
