Holiday Faves



Hi Everyone!

 Hope everyone had a great Christmas and looking forward to a Happy New Year! 
New Year, new attitude new mantra.
I figured I would post a little bit about a few things I've been obsessing about  for the past few weeks, things that I shared on social media.
Of course everything was bought at Fontana Pharmacy- where I have been shopping from I've been a little girl in Mandeville.

Weekend Mini Makeover: Bathroom

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

 Coco Chanel


One may look at this collection and think 'Hmmm blue and white with a little green'- but if you look closely you will see the modern interpretation of mixed prints in a Polka-Stripe towel mix and the on trend cobalt blue with a pop of chartreuse. The bright primary colour of navy in the tumbler set is not only sturdy but economically priced. I was a frequent visitor of the Umbra store in Toronto and I have always relied on their modern and casual pieces for my boys' room decor. I'm just so stoked that Fontana pharmacy now has them available in stores in Jamaica and online.

Hi everyone!
So I stopped by Fontana Pharmacy the other day and treated myself to some new makeup :) I've been using these products for over a week now and figured that was enough time to write a review for you guys... take a look!

After School Boy Blazer

Hold the vision
trust the process




I do love my dark polishes, but sometimes black is a little too dark, even for me :p 
I just picked up this new navy blue Essie polish from Fontana Pharmacy and I'm loving it! 
They call it After School Boy Blazer, and it will be my go to colour for the next few months. This was applied in one coat and it didn't need another because there were no streaks.

Lace Cropped Top and Pencil Skirt



It's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.

Black Leather and Delicate Lace


Believe in yourself at all times and in all aspects of your life.
I forgive people, but that doesn’t mean I trust them. I just don’t have time to hate people who hurt me, because I’m too busy loving people who love me.
The first to apologize is the bravest.
The first to forgive is the strongest.
The first to move forward is the happiest.
Be brave. Be strong. Be happy. Be free.

"If you must look back, 
do so forgivingly. 
If you must look forward, 
do so prayerfully.
However, the wisest thing you can do is 
be present in the present... 
gratefully."

Brick red and navy

I think about the good things I have in my life: 
from family and friends, 
from food and shelter,
to work I truly love, 
to a body that allows me to move through a world so incredibly amazing and ...
I can't believe how lucky I am to be alive!

Blushing Coral


 'Some day we will find what we are looking for -
or maybe we won't. 
Maybe we will find something much greater than that'

Hey everyone, 
turns out I do remember to compile a blog post ;) 
Summer is here already and midriff season is almost upon us * cringe * time to dust off those gym clothes and lay off the bread. 
I liked the pairing of this soft skirt and anchored with the caramel browns in the wrap vegan leather belt and the textured suede clutch. 
Went with the pearl spike necklace to add a little edge to a soft palette.

Wardrobe Rehab: 10 Ways to Style A White T-shirt

"I've always thought of the T-shirt as the alpha and the omega of the fashion alphabet"

 GIORGIO ARMANI

~*~


The basic white t-shirt is a wardrobe staple for every women, as it can either be dressed up or down. It is referred to as a basic because it is one of the building blocks to building a solid clothing collection. Choose a fitted white t-shirt for a chic and seamless look or choose one that is loose and slouchy for a more relaxed and forgiving fit.

Variety:
Be sure to buy your t-shirts in a fabric that is not too thin to prevent it from losing its shape.
Various necklines add interest: A round neck tee offers more coverage so is more versatile than a v-neck.
Different sleeve lengths will also determine wearability ranging from cap sleeves, sleeveless, elbow length and long sleeves. choose one that compliments your body type in the best possible way by minimizing any flaws or accentuating your best assets.

With the help of Trendsetters Collection - located 3 Perth Road, Mandeville - I have shown how different shoes, bags and accessories can transform a basic white t-shirt in 10 different ways. Every piece of clothing was in my wardrobe nothing was purchased except the t-shirt, so it shows that with very little money we can have a fresh update on pieces we already own ;)

~ * ~


1 Monochromatic Chic: High waist vintage Jean Paul Gaultier trousers are paired with a cropped blazer in a classic houndstooth print with pearl buttons; accessorized with a bold red patent leather bag by Milano. The red chain link necklace ties the look together and is a tougher alternative to classic pearls which can sometimes age you in a classic ensemble.





2 Relaxed Weekend Look: Worn here  with a green sheer pleated maxi, I added another layer with a black vest and chose comfortable Steve Madden flats featuring a gold plate detail and a black and white satchel by Anne Klein.,

3 Colour-Block it : Wear a pencil skirt and a blazer for a chic ensemble, choose contrasting colours and add a statement tote to tie in with the other colours.

Preppy Chic: A t-shirt worn over a soft blush toned sheer blouse acts as a light vest. The polka dotted blouse is feminine with a bow and so I chose classic white pearls to give it a dainty finish.


 
5 Edgy: DIY distressed blue denim jeans (DIY previously blogged here) paired with a chunky caramel coloured leather belt, leopard platform pumps from Steve Madden and a studded leather duffle bag also from Steve Madden.


Casual: Denim skirt with brown contrast stitch detail pays tribute to the on-trend 'western/cowgirl' theme. I chose bold gold earrings, a cross body bag by Nicole Lee and brown statement wedges to achieve a carefree but trendy look.


7 Resort Casual: Geometric print palazzo pants paired with an oversized tote in a punchy red-orange colour, the nude Steve Madden platform wedges adds height and balances the look.

8 Relaxed: Red short shorts are paired with a cool chambray denim shirt and accented with a lightweight scarf in a tropical motif. Worn with nude platform wedges by Steve Madden and an oversized yellow tote.

Sunday Brunch : A midi skirt by American Apparel in a vibrant orange colour paired with a small black and white leather satchel by Milano which adds a feminine touch; the matching pointy toe sling backs complete the look.

10 Formal: (Below) High waist mermaid skirt (up cycled from an old gown) paired with a gilded damask bow belt; for jewelry I upped the glam effect by layering a multi-strand pearl necklace with a gold necklace together and adding a bejeweled clutch for a sparkly accent.

Laundering:
Be careful while laundering any white fabrics, but specifically, fabrics with stretch should avoid bleach and use natural stain movies to prevent yellowing. Completely avoid the dryer to avoid shrinkage and bear in mind that over time your t-shirts will fade and thin so be sure  to stock up in a couple.

THE FROLIC 

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all doing well, can you believe it's Friday already? But that means it's time for the weekend! Yay! Today I'm  featuring a couple pieces from Coleen Panton's new collection. You guys may remember when I featured Coleen's designs here and here. As I've said before Coleen truly understands how to dress a woman's body and her finish is always on point. 

Shown above is a jersey fringed top and tribal influenced palazzo pants on this striking beauty Shadea- I'm sure the modeling agencies are going to be fighting over her soon. 

The Kris-Kross: 

Shown above in white, is a stretch cotton palazzo pants and wrap around midriff top- perfect for our tropical climate, as it is sexy and also freeing at the same time. 
I can see myself wearing it with some chunky wedges, but I can also see it being paired with flats and layered necklaces. It's always a great idea to have pieces in separates as it allows us to maximize our wardrobes! ha ha! Frugal fashionista always at it, mix and match is the key! right ladies?

Contact Coleen if you have a special event or if you would like to see more of her collection, visit and like her facebook page here.
Have a great weekend everyone!
