A few months ago KRS Hair Group sent me the Knatural Course 16″/18″/20″ Wig from their Knappy Hair Extensions Collection. The first time I wore it, I didn’t know exactly what I was doing but I was in love with it. I styled it with a flat twist out to make it wavy. But as my friend pointed out later I had to leave out some of my own hair. I tried that on Halloween and it was a strong NO. So recently I saw another friend get her bangs cut so I was like I can do that with the wig, Bangs = No Leave Out! I cut the bangs myself and I think it turned out pretty good.
Fall has “officially” arrived here in New York. It was a bit touch and go there for a moment. With fall comes more layers and chankier knits. I’ve put together 4 looks that are sure to up your fall wardrobe for any occasion. I hope this will get you in the mood for fall and give you a bit of inspritation.
Thursday marked one week since I decided to go vegan. My decision was mainly sparked by a documentary I watched on Netflix, What the Health. There were many compelling studies and facts which concluded that plant based diets are the best for humans. There were a few in particular that resonated with me. I won’t get into them here as I would want you to watch and make your own decision. This documentary coupled with one I watched a few years ago, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, convinced me it was time to make a change.
So this past weekend we had a taste of summer hit New York. I had to take advantage of the beautiful weather. With the weather being so all over the place I have to sneak in summer outfits when I can. Continue reading “A Taste of Summer”
This past weekend I have the pleasure of attending the MatchesFashion.com in Residence. It was 4 days of mini discussion on topics from photography to floral arrangements. The location was beautiful home on the Upper Eastside and the event featured some amazing speakers and moderators with light bites and drinks in between.
Each room was filled fashion, shoes and accessories for men and women. With personal shoppers ready to take any orders. I was in aww of every room and it’s carefully curated selections. The sequin dress pictured above had to be one of my favorites. I also fell in love with these Balenciaga boots pictured below. Upstairs they had a room solely dedicated to vacationing. Anything you may need for a beach getaway or a ski resort, they have you covered.
A Lesson in Florals
A Lesson in Florals with Nicolette Camille was an amazing class on building dynamic floral arrangements. The venue was filled with her beautiful arrangements from the time you stepped into the building, so I was excited to learn from Nicolette. We learned the importance of building a base for you to work from and about layering the color palette.
Here are a few tips:
Work on a lazy Susan so that you have a 360 degree view.
Start with your larger branches and stems as the baseline.
Bring in your more neutral flowers as the foundation.
Decide where you want you palette to go and gradually add in the different tones. (Place flowers in twos and threes at varying heights to create depth.)
Finish your arrangement with your pop flowers.
