Blazing Hot Summer Hats

Hi Everyone! I'm back for the summer looking stylish and having fun while I'm at it. Summer is all about the outdoors, whether your enjoying the pool, a barbeque, the park or the beach. You definitely need a summer hat to protect yourself from the blazing hot sun and to keep you looking chic. These are the top two summer hat trends that I'm raving about that you can wear everywhere.

Fedoras-  A popular male dominated hat is taking over this summer with casual and trendy women styles. The women's fedora can be found in neutral, vibrant pops of color or prints with a rounded bottom rim this summer. Compliment your summer outfits by adding a trendy or casual fedora to instantly look stylish. Check me out below wearing my fav neutral fedora.

Over-sized Sun Hats-  Over-sized floppy hats are reemerging this summer as vintage chic beachwear. You can grab a color blocked or printed large sun hat to make a neutral outfit or bathing suit pop. This summer grab a neutral over-sized hat to top off several outfits and achieve a timeless and elegant look.

 So grab a sleek fedora or over-sized sun hat this summer and stay chic in the sun.

Spring Fashion Rave

Spring is upon us, it's in the air, I can feel it. I love the spring season not only for the beauty in nature and the transitioning to a warmer climate but for the amazing fashions. It's time to show a brand new you, so lets spring forward. Here are my favorite spring 2012 fashion trends from the runway that I'm excited about and ready to wear.

1. Brights/Neon-This spring is going to be all about brights and neon, especially incorporating them in accessories like the ones below, the brighter the better. Colored denim is back this spring season, I love colored skinny jeans with neutral flats or heels. It's all about balance you could wear a bright colored dress, pants or top and wear neutral or colored accessories that compliment the outfit not clash it.

My Favorite- Yellow Neon Bag: Target

2. Bold Prints- Bold prints aren't for everyone, but I'm up for it... are you?  This spring embrace bold florals, tribal, stripes and geometric prints in relaxed fits. These prints are attention grabbers for sure, bold prints definitely bring a fun energy. Try bold prints this spring in dresses, skirts, pants, and tops. If your not adventurous enough to try bold print clothing yet, try bold print shoes or accessories.

3. Pastels- Candy colored hues and soft feminine pastel shades hit this springs sweet spot. Pastels bring a distinctive feminine vibe this spring through blouses, blazers and dresses with pleats and ruffle detailing. These pale colors can be incorporated in pants and accessories as well.

4. Embellishments- Sequins, metallics and embroidered embellishments on tops, skirts and dresses are the perfect touch of spring glamour for day or night. Embellished accessories such as necklaces, bracelets and handbags with baubles are an ideal way to update your look this spring. Look for gold, sliver or pewter colored embellishments.

♥ Valentines Day Makeup Look ♥ Sweet Island Sunset

Valentines Day is almost here ladies and I was inspired to create this mesmerizing Valentines Day makeup look. I created this look by using NYC's eyeshadow duo palette in Island Sunset. This V-Day makeup look is easy to achieve and very affordable. I love the color purple, and pink was the perfect color for the holiday. So go ahead, try this makeup look for Valentines Day or any fun occasion. Check out my picture tutorial below for the complete look.  Hope you Enjoy!

 NYC's City Duet: Island Sunset: CVS $2.99
Step 1                                                                                                 Step 2

Step 1: Start with a freshly moisturized face, I have applied my foundation/concealer. I then applied eyeshadow primer to my eyelids to enhance the colors of the eyeshadows and to keep the eyeshadows from creasing.

Step 2: Using an eyeshadow brush, I took the pink eyeshadow from NYC's Island Sunset duo palette and applied it over my entire lid. You could apply as little or as much color to your liking.

Step 3                                                                         Step 4
Step 3: Using a crease brush, I took the purple eyeshadow from NYC's Island Sunset duo palette and applied it from the inner corner of my eyelid crease to the outer corner of my eyelid crease. Blend, blend, blend in a windshield wiper motion into the pink color to create a gradient effect. This purple eyeshadow adds dept and dimension to the look.

Step 4: Here I took a flat eyeshadow brush and applied the cream color from Elf's Day to Night quad palette underneath my brow bone as my highlight color. Take your crease brush and make sure to blend the cream color with the purple eyelid crease color.

                      Step 5                                                               Complete Look
Step 5: Using an eyeliner brush, I took Wet and Wild's gel liner and lined my lower lash line from the inner corner to the outer corner, creating a slight winged cat eye. I then applied mascara and a sheer pink lip gloss. Vuala! there you have it, my complete Sweet Island Sunset V-Day makeup look.

Whether you enjoy Valentines Day with your special someone or with friends and, feel pretty and have fun.

       ♥   XOXO  ♥
