One of my favourite nail trends that has carried over into 2014 is to accent your ring finger as a stand alone color/texture from the rest of your uniform nails. It’s a beautiful way to compliment your engagement ring and other accessories (like stackable rings) that you may want to showcase.
Next on my list is pretty ombré nails… you may have read my post about my ombré hair plans and it seems like the trend is picking up speed in the nail world too. Although I have seen many people who put the ombré effect on each nail individually, I personally love these looks below, where each nail is a shade or two off from the next.
Another option for accenting the ring finger is to create another stand alone pattern on your middle finger as well. This is a little more complicated (if you plan to execute the stripes DIY style) but nonetheless a growing, beautiful trend to try this year.
Lastly, adding some shimmer and shine to your nails is a surefire way to perk up a dull winter season or when you just feel like getting a little wild with your mani/pedi’s. I like using this look mainly for special occasions because I’m usually rocking my ring finger look every other day of the week
Yes. I said need. We all need to enjoy the little pleasures we have as women. And great lingerie is one of them. And although I enjoy occasional trips to Victoria’s Secret, I have to admit I would much rather put myself into something sans padding. So instead of buying anything I can wear, I usually walk out with a boat load of their lip glosses… because they are just so yummy and do the greatest job of shining my lips And aside from the usual suspects like Agent Provocateur and ol’faithful La Perla, there are some great brands we need to get to know a little better… or maybe a lot better.

Like some of you out there, I am in the beginning stages of trying to get knocked up So far I have been sort of letting things happen naturally without any obsessive focus, yet. But…I have downloaded many apps to help track my ovulation and holy crap are there a ton of pregnancy apps out there! So I have complied my fave ones and why I like them to help other women who are at the same stage as I am. I hope you find them helpful and if you have any apps that you like please let me know!

For anyone who was late on Oprah’s Lifeclass with Eckhart Tolle like myself, here is part one, part two and three. It’s really something you could hunker down and watch all in a row if you devoted the day to it. And what better time to do that on a cold winter day off. Or you could spread it out and make a routine of it Either way I hope you enjoy it and please don’t hesitate to comment or email. (more…)
Kim Kardashian and her makeup artist Scott Barnes are probably the first to open up about how contouring is used behind the Hollywood scenes, but since then many other celebs have shown their versions. While I love them all, I do not like to use heavy contouring for day looks but for a night event or photo shoot… Contour Away!!! For most of us, the holidays will be filled with dinners with family and thats the perfect time to take these looks for a test drive, just remember… blend. Blend. Blend.
Here is my favourite contour tutorial by Carli Bybel:
Other than putting up your Christmas Tree, adding ornaments (and any other holiday paraphernalia) to the rest of your house will add a festive mood in seconds. Best places to add them is to your centrepieces (my Mother-in-Law is a genius at making these look magazine perfect and she says it’s super simple), putting a few amongst your books shelves or fireplace mantel are also a great way to add a splash more without overkill of course.
