Hello my lovely readers!
Actress Sofia Vergara was sporting such beautiful, classic looks on the set of her latest film “Chef” filming in Miami yesterday…
With her co-stars on the set:
Another beautiful, ladylike look:
These looks can give us all a little bit of inspiration! I love adding just a few gold or silver bangles to bring some extra femininity to an outfit and the correct length and cut of your dress is so important! Everyone has a different body shape but the secret is to leave a little to the imagination 😉 so be sexy without being trashy. Stay classy with the length and cut! Sofia just looks so gorgeous in these 2 outfits!
Hello my lovely readers!
Well, things have been quite busy for me with all my travels and work, but I managed to make some delightful friends, some of whom are the team over at Bio Seaweed Gel Nails. The girls were so gracious and they did my nails in #242 Pink Sky ! I absolutely love them! It is actually the only gel nail experience that I can ever write about because not only do they look and feel so beautiful, but the benefits are awesome:
LED and UV light cured
No sanding, primers or bonders
ZERO dehydrated, stained or weakened nails
Safe industry record soak off removal in 5 minutes
Formaldehyde, toluene, DPB, BHA and solvent FREE
Ideal for nail art 😉
Here are the talented ladies behind the brand 🙂
Since nail art is the latest thing, this polish looks beautiful and is perfect for it!

Hello lovely readers!
In case you didn’t know, Andy Murray is the new Wimbledon champion! Yay! However, it’s his girlfriend, Kim Sears, who has also been getting a lot of attention. And for good reason. I think it’s so wonderful to see her rocking such stylish, ladylike looks! She looks fabulous and is a great role model for fashion!

Greetings lovely readers!
I had the pleasure of being in the company of the famous Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills. She is the go-to woman for eyebrows for everyone! Her philosophy is simple–that your eyebrows shape and frame your face. And yes, she is right. I got to watch her in action, up close with this lovely young lady….
You see? Having your eyebrows correctly shaped, clean, and natural looking literally transforms your face. I prefer eyebrows to be on the thicker side and clean. When you have them done right, like Oprah says, “it’s like a facelift that takes 10 years off your face!”. For her show where Anastasia was a guest, Oprah had these results for one of her viewers:
Not only is she a gracious lady, but Anastasia knows her stuff!
Here is the general rule of thumb in addition to the above tutorial for using her eyebrow kit…
So let those eyebrows grow out, stop over-plucking, and then have them shaped the right way and continue with what shape is right for you. It will make all the difference and you generally wear less makeup!
….and I just couldn’t resist showing you my brows right now 😉 Just keep your makeup simple like mine and keep your eyebrows full and natural…
So my lovely readers, grow those brows out!
Have a beautiful weekend!
Hello my beautiful readers! I hope everyone had a beautiful Independence Day yesterday!! Yesterday was a special day for America….hope you were all dressed in beautiful reds, whites, and blues! 🙂
Today is once again a Fashion Friday and I’d love to share with you the beautiful German actress/model Diane Kruger who was recently named the new face of Chanel…
Here she is shooting her latest commercial for Chanel…
Happy Fashion Friday!!
The beautiful Jessica Alba has been on her latest film set, Dear Eleanor, in Colorado. I can’t wait to see it, but what is capturing attention is the wardrobe!
Channeling the 1960s, she definitely hits the mark and looks fab!
So put on a lovely hat and summer dress and enjoy this beautiful June weekend 🙂
Hello my dear readers! I just picked up a beautiful top from H&M that has the prettiest neckline–a jeweled collar. We are seeing this trend everywhere lately and I love it!
There’s a few reasons why I just love this look! Not only does it add extra style to any outfit, but it allows you to wear little to no jewelry-thereby saving you money without sacrificing beautiful style 🙂
You can even do this yourself for any shirts you might already have! Madigan Made gives a great tutorial for anyone to do: http://www.madiganmade.com/2013/01/simple-rhinestone-collar-refashion.html
It’s very feminine and easy to wear…
