Paris Couture Week

Have you ever looked at an outfit and thought "this is pure art"? No? Well, that's exactly how I'm watching the Elie Saab fashion show this past week. His show is one of my favorites, and the couture collection truly embodies the craftsmanship and what it really means to be sewing because of each piece of clothing is genuine art. The theme of the show is "Of Forms And Light," and the many breathtaking designs depicting organic shapes, extraordinary detailing, and marvelous styles ranging from long gowns, hi-low dresses, short cocktail dresses and even pantsuits.

This week-end weekend was full of outrageously fabulous designs. I was in such a craftmanship of all these designers how their plans came to life on the runway.

Printed Lifestyle

Animal prints have the potential to take your outfit from "blah" to "oh yes"! There are so many simple pieces that can transform your outfit instantly, and I'm sure you have plenty of them in your own closet. For this outfit, I have a top that featured my absolute favorite animal for this season, this top tank top from Urban Outfitters . This shirt is light and airy to help keep you fresh on those scorching days! It's a design that can be paired with denim, leather, linen, and cotton bottoms and I have a thing to match with my vintage Levi's .

A Tangerine Daydream

When I think of summer, I think of quick and simple, but stylish outfits. It's the perfect time to show off some skin while still impressing everyone you see. This look features a light and airy pastel-ish, tangerine dress from Free People . The cinched waist shows off your curves, while the rest of the dress is flowy and comfy.

Sunny Hair Care

I do not know about you, but my hair is personally one of my favorite aspects. I do not feel fully dressed until my hair is done! It completely completes my look each and every time, so it definitely gets a lot of my attention each day. This warm weather is so fantastic, but can be a little damaging to our lovely braids. The increase in direct sunlight can be compared to that.

Summer Styles

What styles do you think of when it comes to summer? One of my top picks for the summer has a white, flowy, boho chic dress. It's definitely a summer must and super easy to dress up. Add a nice pair of gold hoops and style your hair in a bun to be ready for a formal evening out.

Keep It Cute

As the weather starts to warm up in most cities, we start with layers and layers of clothing off. We want to show off at the beach, party parties, and the barbecues, but we can not do that with the dreaded summer bloat. I'm going to let you in on some little secrets that can make a BIG difference. You'll be pleased with me when you're deciding which pics to post on Instagram.

Podcasts for the soul

We live in the digital age and everything we do every day involves multitasking and a mobile device. One of my favorite things to do on my phone is to listen to podcasts. There is a lot of things in the world that you do not have to worry about.

Vienna Pt. 2

     I know I was here, but there is a lot more I want to share! Apart from my time at the wedding, I spend my time roaming the streets and taking in all the gorgeous sites. I was really blown away by the city's beauty, and I was overjoyed to retrace the steps of my favorite sissi movie. I visited the Hofburg Palace and the Schonbrunn Palace and Gardens, the main imperial palace and the former imperial palace. These two sites were full of culture and history, and I was so amazed by all the city had to offer.

It’s Tea Time!

Matcha Tea Time

Yes, I know. We keep hearing Matcha this, Matcha that, but what really is this tea and what can it do for us? Matcha is finely ground up green tea leaves that are known to be full of antioxidants, protein, fiber and the amino acid L-theanine. That particular amino acid has been said to reduce jitters and calm the nerves while enhancing our memories and ability to focus! These are definitely improvements that I'm sure you could too!

SUIT UP

I don't know about you, but my absolute favorite season has arrived. It's finally summer, and that means endless pool parties, tropical vacations and new bikinis! Treat yourself to a little shopping and say goodbye to those old bathing suits. It's time to jump into some hot, new pieces! This season calls for a revamping of your arsenal.

All things SPF, etc.

Getting a glowing summer bronze is great and all, but let's do so with SPF infused products so we're getting some color while not damaging our skin. Whether it's straight SPF for the face to head to the beach, or one with a hint of color for daily life, there's a few options that

à la Zara

Since we already know Zara is basically the one stop shop for all seasons, there's no need to delve into too many specifics, but I did find this top, pants and bag there and had a really easy time getting dressed this morning! I also have this thing for straw bags, whether they're flea market or Etsy finds, or from any boutique, they're just such an easy
