    Statement necklaces go with practically any outfit and it is fun to wear. One can never go wrong with a statement necklace.  This summer, try a fun, bold, chunky, colorful statement necklace. One of the jewelry trends to try this summer is the Geometric Statement Necklace.  The geometric design brings out the vibrancy to the design of necklaces. They add elegance and style to the necklaces.   There are a variety of geometric necklaces that are bold, chunky and colorful.   Show off your best angle with these :-

    Spring is almost here.  As we all move from winter to spring, it is time to keep those heavy sweaters and jackets away.  We can bring out the lighter outerwear, add some pastel to the wardrobe and maybe some open-toes shoes too. If you need some minor reboot in the closet, well check out some of these fabulous finds from H&M

    Are you someone who loves buying beauty products and have tons of them at home?  Do you know that your makeup and beauty products have expiration dates?  Don’t worry if you have been slathering yourself with expired moisturizers or using eyeliners that have expired.  It is not as bad as drinking spoilt milk *chuckle* I always follow this rule – “If it smells funky, chuck it”.  Below is a list of expiration dates for the beauty products.  Time to spring clean that make-up bag of yours.

  7. Jumpsuits Trend For Spring 2017

    February 23, 2017 by barbara

    The jumpsuit has become more like a seasonal outfit rather than trend, according to Vogue.  It can be worn all year round and it is perfect for every occasion.  Whether to a party, a casual lunch with friend or formal dinner, this one-piece style can make a complete outfit. Jumpsuits are chic and with the right accessories and heels, they will make one look elegant and taller. Are you a fan?

  8. How To Get Rid of Oily Hair

    February 19, 2017 by barbara

    When you are press for time and your hair is greasy or oily, here is a simple trick you can do to keep your hair looking fresh.  Just sprinkle a bit of baby powder on your hair and gently massage it into your scalp.  Then comb your hair until the powder is no longer visible.  Easy peasy right?  The baby powder will soak in the oil fairly well.   With this quick freshening up trick, you do not have to wash your hair daily.  Another good option is to use corn flour.

  9. Grammy Award 2017 Fashion

    February 15, 2017 by barbara

    So it was the 59th Annual Grammy Award ceremony two nights ago.  I have always loved watching the Grammys because I get to watch my favourite artists performing.  I also like to look at the Grammys Red Carpet.  Some of the fashions are really gaudy and weird and it gets weirder every year.  However, there are also some notable styles that are winning the red carpet.  I have here some of my favourites.  Oh not forgetting, one of the performances that I really enjoyed watching with the http://www.guitarcenter.com/Universal-Audio/ speakers blasting out loud is the tribute to Bee Gees by Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town and Andra Day.

  10. How To Look Effortlessly Chic?

    February 10, 2017 by barbara

    Sometimes I wonder why some people can look so effortlessly chic.  These people are often in their denim and a shirt or even a sweatshirt but they really look fashionable.  I know this is a silly though but I have been thinking about it for a while.  How does one pull off a chic look together without much effort?  Does a person have to be slim in order to pull off an effortless style?  I read somewhere that it is important to have a set of efficient wardrobe.  Key fashion pieces are important such as a few pairs of nice pants, denim, tailored tops, statement necklaces and shoes. Classic pieces that fit well, flatter your body and can be mixed and matched easily are all we need.
