Fire it Up

balenciagaFor the last couple of seasons long, pointed, dragon like nails have been the shape of the moment. I personally cannot go there, not only because the safety of my child comes first, but being able to wipe my butt is important to me! Ridiculous trends come and go and I’m happy to see this one go. It looks like the more understated square/round shape is making it’s way back. Although I’m not sure it ever left, as you can never go wrong with a clean, classic line.

Whether you tend to keep your manicure neutral or like to add some color, my eye at the moment is loving a bright candy apple red. Polishes have gone under a big transformation in the last decade. Taking out formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals has been a priority.

RGB nail care has done just that in eliminating 5 toxins. No formaldehyde, No Toluene, No DBP, No camphor and No formaldehyde resin. They even go a step further by being vegan, cruelty free, gluten free and responsibly made in the U.S.A. Not only have they made their brand appealing to a thoughtful consumer, they also make a killer red. Check it out. Happy Hump Day! xoxo

Paris Fashion Week

paris_street_fashion_2013.jpg.size.xxlarge.letterboxPFW has been in full swing this past week.  And although there have been some amazing shows from ACNE, Balenciaga and CHLOE, just to name a few, I’m always more inspired by street style and how individuals put their spin on what they’ve seen.

As seasons pass I truly believe that the fashion capital has moved away from Paris, and rests more on New York’s shoulders.  No doubt that Paris’ love of fashion shines beyond most, it’s probably more of a personal opinion than anything concrete, but New York has made their stamp pretty deep in the fashion world.  Regardless of where your opinion may lie, Paris will always have it’s spot at the top.  Happy Monday!.  xoxo
