What’s in my Suitcase: Memorial Day Weekend

what to pack for Vegas

Memorial Day weekend is almost here, and it is the perfect excuse to getaway for a bit & soak up some rays. I personally am going to enjoy my long weekend by jaunting off to the big city of Las Vegas for some fun in the sun. Unlike most Vegas trips, I am not planning to party till the wee hours of the morning, instead I am more interested in seeing a show or two, eating delicious food, and working on my tan. Packing is always hard for me, mostly because I am not keen on the idea of limiting myself... Read More

Backless is Back in Action

Over the past few months there has been a trend emerging on the red carpet that I have taken particular notice of, and that is bare backs. The last time we have seen such an emergence of backless garments was when Kate Hudson won the hearts of fashionistas everywhere with her backless yellow gown in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Ever since the fabulous Jennifer Lawrence showed up at her premiere for the Hunger Games rocking a fabulous black backless number, celebs soon began to follow in her fashion... Read More

Hunter Rain Boots for Summer? Why Not!

Who ever said that rain boots were only to be worn in the rain? That is one rule that I am 100% okay with breaking. I would love to meet the individual who had the genius idea of breaking fashion norms and pairing their most beloved pair of Wellington's with their shortest shorts & share with them my gratitude. Living in San Diego, there isn't much of a need to own rain boots, yet with this fun look I can finally go purchase an adorable pair of Hunter boots. I can't wait. How would you wear... Read More

Trend Alert: Cat Eye Sunnies

Summer is well on it's way, and it is time to pull out your favorite pair shades, or maybe go purchase some new ones. Sunglasses are one of the most important parts of an outfit, not only because they can be adorable, but they also prevent you from squinting against the harmful sun's rays (which is one of the biggest causes of wrinkles). That being said, the number one sunglass trend to take note of this summer is the cat eye shape. Whether rounded, sharp, or subtle- this catty shape works well... Read More

Mid Finger Rings & Nail Rings… Would You?

Whether you like to wear a ring on each finger, or prefer to keep it simpler, there are 2 finger trends that are catching many individuals' eyes (mine included). These two trends are the nail finger & the mid finger ring. Take a look at these... Read More
