When you think of the key beauty elements for your wedding day, you of course start with your dress, then your make up. But, let’s keep it real here….without amazing wedding day hair, your dress and makeup will lack. They won’t reach their full potential. Think of hair as the frame, and your dress and makeup, as the photograph. One thing goes with the other. They are complimentary of one another, and produce a beautiful end product, TOGETHER. Sure, you’ll hire someone to do your hair for your big day….or if you’re hair savvy, you’ll do your own hair. But, what good is an up do, waves, curls, etc, if your hair quality is dry, shine free, split ended, or brittle. Hair is a big part of your overall look. So, preparing it for the most important day of your life is a must.

Your usual hair regimens aren’t going to cut it. For your wedding, hair preparation deserves an extra step. But, by choosing the best, most result driven products to care for your hair, you will get locks only seen on a Botticelli painting.

Bumble and Bumble’s Hair Dresser’s Invisible Oil is a win, win type of product. It’s composed of various oils and extracts. Some are: grapeseed, safflower seed, sweet almond, and coconut. It absorbs quickly to your hair, and it tames frizz, gives your hair shine, and protects from heat and UV rays. Basically, it’s an all around hair nurturer/protectant.

Split Ends No More

Nothing is more beautiful than even ended hair. It gives you a polished, well kept appearance. Also, if no split ends are present, all hair will dress/wear nicer. You won’t see a single bad hair day. That’s where Josie Maran’s organ oil comes in. This is serum based, and it’s of course 100% pure argan oil. It’s organic, and boosts your hair’s moisture, and seals split ends. Hair perfecter indeed.

The Perfect Finish

Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 8.24.58 PMWhen our hair is not cooperative, and wants to do its own thing, we are quick to reach for a bottle of hair spray, or a tube of hair gel. Sure, those products may solve your problem….but, they’re definitely not “nourishing” your hair. Kiehl’s Silk Groom Serum, tames your hair, prevents static, gives you shine, while also nourishing your hair with vitamin E.

Set the Right Stage

Even with hair products added in, your hair may not want to cooperate. It has no bounce, no cascading fall, only wants to comb one way, etc. For the days where our hair wants to be stubborn, use Living Proof’s Satin Hair Serum. This product will discipline your hair, and set it straight. You’ll instantly see your limp hair, become completely revitalized.

CPR For Your Hair

Therefore, it’s good to use a product that will give your hair the TLC it deserves after so much exhaustion. Obliphica’s Seaberry Hair Serum strengthens weak hair, and shields your ends from harm’s way.

Who Wore It Better: Chloe Pixie Small Round Double-Handle Shoulder Bag

By Charlene Lazewski

Screen Shot 2017-12-29 at 5.15.18 PM

Emma Roberts was recently seen wearing the Chloe Pixie Small Round Double-Handle Shoulder Bag. She started wearing it in September. She really must love it because in the month of October, she was seen wearing it on many of her outings. But, has she worn it with the right outfits? What do you think? On the far left, she is wearing it with with pants, a long cardigan and boots. On the far right, with a mid knee length, A-line dress. When did she wear it better?

We say the far left look, wins. This is a highly textured bag, with bold details. Therefore, pairing it with layered looks, will better accent the handbag, as well as the bag accenting your look. The far right look is far too simple for such a bold handbag. Had she layered her dress with a moto jacket for example, and some higher booties, then the bag would have been better complimented.

Here are some great clothing pieces that will compliment this specific handbag….

One of Hilary Duff’s latest bag favorites is Givenchy’s Infinity Chain Bucket Bag. She’s been spotted with it many times. But, has she been wearing it right most of the time? She actually has, and that’s because a bucket style bag is probably one of the most versatile bag styles out there.

In the first look (left to right), Hilary is wearing it with a dress top, and skinny jeans….a perfect look for a day date. In the second picture, she wears with a simple T-shirt, skinny jeans, and a flannel. A very casual look indeed. But, the bag still works well! This handbag would be a fantastic staple to have in your wardrobe, as it meshes well with all looks.

Here are some looks (dressy, and casual), that would go perfect with the Givenchy bucket bag, alike:

5 Reasons Why Prada Bags Will Always Win The Medal of Practicality

By Charlene Lazewski

prada-practicality-feature

When we speak of luxury handbag designers, we are quick to associate them all with fine leather materials. But, if a designer brands themselves correctly and efficiently, people won’t focus on the leather. They will focus more on the quality of any material, and respect it for its craftsmanship as a whole. Prada is a designer that has done just that.

Prada has created an extensive collection on luxury handbags made from Tessuto nylon.It has become a signature of the brand itself. In a sense, it has even fortified the brand. People now automatically associate the practicality of this high quality nylon solely with Prada. Which in turn, sets the brand with historic exclusivity. This has allowed buyers to place the Prada brand, on untouchable parallels.

The Prada nylon bags offer people luxury with the upmost level of durability, quality, and practicality. Besides setting a foundation for Prada, the nylon bags attract people because the majority of the time, we’re on the go. Most of the time, we’re in very casual attire. And, comfort for the day, is at the top of our list. But, a side of luxury never hurt anyone, right?! The Prada nylon handbag collection meets the everyday woman and man’s standards of practicality, and always will. Here are 5 reasons why….

1.The Perfect Combination of Tote And Nylon

The Prada Nylon Tote Bag, set the stage for this particular style and design. Sure, other brands make tote bags, but will they stand the test of time like this one will? Probably not. You have reinforced straps and handles, and superb quality nylon inside and outside shell.

2. Prada Brings An Everlasting Evening Bag To Life

If you’re assuming that all of Prada’s nylon bags are only for daytime use, you are mistaken. Prada takes its signature Tessuto nylon material to new heights. This evening bag will last you a lifetime with its durable nylon shell. The delicate silver chain strap, and stone detailing, make it exquisite. A must for every woman’s wardrobe.

3. Prada Isn’t Afraid Of Loading Up On Pocket Spaces

Most designers prefer putting all their pockets inside a handbag. But, Prada is okay with adding outer pocket spaces that will make your life easier, and of course more organized. Prada’s Vela Hunting Bag is a prime example of this style.

4. Prada Keeps Your Belonging Nice And Warm

You know when you’re outside all day, it’s really cold out, and you go to grab your compact or lipstick, and they’re ice cold. Well, Prada thinks of everything because, Tessuto Bomber Tote is basically a bomber jacket in tote form. It’s a win, win to say the least.

5. Prada Believes In A Hands Free World

Something you’ll notice about the nylon collection, is that almost every style is crossbody. No need to carry around from a handle, or on your shoulder as it slips off with every step. Prada makes sure to put your comfort first.
