ménage à trois

People I’m in a relationship with may tell you that it’s more of a ménage à trois – me, you, and my hair (my super long chestnut wavy locks). In order to keep my tresses healthy & in check for the ultimate lovefest, I use MoroccanOil.  Prior to it’s arrival in my life, I was very hippie and didn’t use any products on my hair. I just let it do what it wanted and usually really liked the result. However, I didn’t realize how much better it could actually look and feel with this product. It improves the texture of your hair, moisturizes, styles, and gives the most delicious fresh fragrance.


Although I have a sick demented love for this massive heat, I also realize it’s a bit insane to enjoy 98 degrees with 58 percent humidity. Not to mention, where did the lovely 80 degrees with the ever so slight breeze go? Regardless, this weather demands very light clothes and accessories, which explains today’s outfit post. My first outfit post!  I intend to incorporate personal styling in this blog and I would post them daily if I had my very own paparazzo following me around.

emma at home

Emma Gardner started her career as an editor and illustrator before showcasing her creativity in rug designs in 2002. Since then, she has gained fame in the genre for her vibrant and unique designs.  The label Chandra Rugs offered a collection of Emma’s work, which includes not only rugs, but home furnishings, accessories, and artwork. The collection is fresh, bold, contemporary and happy. My favorites are the geometric floral pillows and beautiful matryoshka-inspired wall art. The matryoshka mug shot is so clever and cute. Enjoy!

I was excited when a package arrived from Gilt yesterday. Gilt is an on-line shopping group that offers fantastic deals on high-end clothing and accessories and now, food, jet-setting & city-specific events. The items featured are in a limited quality so it's a fast-paced, get-it-while-you-can sort of buying experience. It's a bit of shopping war-fare. :-) 

Click here if you're interested in checking it out. It's where I purchased this three-ring stacked set of spiked rings by NOIR. It's really fun, edgy jewelry! Have an amazing day!!!

girls, we dj this motha

Everyone loves a stylish female DJ, and designers are not the exception. They have unofficially anointed Chelsea Leyland as the It DJ for the fashion scene.  She’s been spinning everywhere from the Paper magazine’s annual Beautiful People Bash to Valentino’s Fashion Night Out Charity Poker Tournament.  Keep an eye out for her this fall in a MTV documentary about the lives and careers of three girl DJs. Oh boy! ;-)

Jennipie is the ultimate treat! The milan-based designer disguises upscale silk and chiffon lingerie, babydoll intimates, and sexy bikinis in deliciously wrapped cookies, ice cream, and cupcakes. The styles are colored in the most yummy chocolate browns, sorbet brights, and vanilla crèmes. How fun!!!

Since the recent amy winehouse tragedy, I've been reflecting on the premature loss of so many entertainers. Marilyn Monroe, who also passed away too early, was idolized as the quintessential american sex symbol. I find these photos so charming. 

Some lovely photos of Amy Winehouse. So talented. rip.

Adorn Yourself: Jewelry Inspiration

Beautiful jewelry is an excellent basis for outfit inspiration, if you ask me. I'd currently like to adorn myself with these perfect pairings. The first has a sort of morrocan vibe while the second feels very beach-bunny-having-cocktails casual vibe. I've always loved animal-inspired jewelry, thus the dragonfly necklace and snake ring. I can't seem to get enough of snake rings.
