I had the privilege of being invited to the Jason Kieck Desert Nights Charity Couture and Gala Dinner on the 28th of September (see previous blog post) and OMG! I honestly cannot tell you what I was expecting exactly, but it surely wasn’t what I experienced.   I haven’t had such a memorable night in a long time, and I honestly needed it. All I knew about the night was that money was going to be raised for charity and a good time was going to be had while doing so. And boy oh boy was a good time had!…

Summer is here!! Well, almost, let me not get ahead of myself and let these past couple of days of warm weather get to my head. I can’t wait though, I love cold cuddle-weather, but I am just about ready to pull out the shorts and tank tops from the back of my closet now and play in the sun.   You know how they say summer bodies are made in winter? Well, summer-ready glowy skin is nurtured in winter and I would say I didn’t do a bad job this past season! I started my “road to glow” after…

One of the coolest stores on planet earth, Superbalist, has some amazing options to choose from for the winter season. I love “virtual shopping” and I am constantly adding things to my wishlist that I (most of the time) never end up buying. When Superbalist asked me to compile a list of my top 5 wishlist items I HAD to jump on the opportunity and do some virtual shopping and planning.   Frill Sleeve Dress First up is this frill sleeve black dress. I know what you’re thinking!! “Errrrm, girl, where on earth are you wearing that in WINTER without…

Smart Motion Listen, I LOVE FASHION! In case you haven’t already noticed I am obsessed with playing dress up. I love how fashion gives you the ability to say a lot without even having to open your mouth. I love how simple things like switching up a denim jacket for a coat can make you feel and help you say two completely different things. I love playing around with different fabrics because I feel like certain fabrics help you tell different kinds of stories. Cashmere makes you feel different to say, a leather jacket for example and I love experimenting with such. The…
