DIY Mermaid Nails

I've been promising you guys a new makeup tutorial, and here it is - a beautiful DIY mermaid mani! It's so perfect for Summer, and I promise you, it's quite easy to do. I was so inspired by the samples I recently received from Nail Social Nail Brand. I have to say, when I first saw the colors, I knew they were a little bit out of my typical comfort zone. Honestly, I haven't worn sparkly blue nail polish since college, which was quite a while ago for me. For years I've stuck with pinks, reds, and purples; with the most adventurous of my manis being hot pink (and only when hot pink was very on-trend). None the less, I was ready to try this "24K Mermaid" polish. Objectively speaking, as blue sparkly nail polishes go, it was pretty after all.

It was beautiful on, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that under different lighting it went from a true blue to a sparkly greenish blue that looked even more...mermaid-ish if you ask me. When it came time to take i…

Fall Fashion Preview: J. Crew Fall/Holiday 2013 Collection


One of the most buzzed about women's collections for fall is the J.Crew 2013 Fall/Holiday Collection, presented at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week earlier this year, and it's easy to see why. Now bare with me. I know a lot of you wouldn't wear all of the looks as they were styled for the runway, and I don't blame you. However take a moment to look at the individual pieces. The collection is full of perfectly tailored trousers, glorious brocade prints, and a some sporty pieces. There is so much detail, yet somehow it's so streamlined. Though the looks are styled to perfection if you're fashion forward, you can make the pieces more wearable by pairing the prints with solid tops and the trousers with flats.


The first thing I noticed were the accessories. I can't help it, those are my favorite parts of any look. Let's face it, shoes have taken a strange turn in the recent years with high flat-forms, chunky heels, cut-out heels, etc. I love how all of the heels shown with this collection are classic pointy-toe heels, a few incorporating the ankle-strap trend (which I am obsessed with). These looks are perfect for wearing to work and for holiday events. The fun pieces mixed in, like the first two tops in the first picture and the striped tops can all work well with more casual look as well. Though the blazers are all so sleek and formal, they can totally go with jeans and a cool tee.
