Bonding time: Kate Beckinsale and her daughter Lily Mo Sheen enjoyed a sunny Sunday shopping spree at Madison in Pacific Palisades, California. The English actress who, has long lived in Brentwood, California, is a fan of the chainlet - having spotted in the store's signature orange shopping bag. Appearing casual chic, the actress wore her brunette locks down in loose waves and concealed her brown eyes with a pair of jet black sunglasses.

My only question is: what did she buy?

Prints n' Twists

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I am obsessed with anything that has a bold print this summer. I found these shorts while shopping at my favorite store Lux Clothing a few months ago and I love them so much I'd marry them (I promise to love, wash, and repair until the end of time!) Since they have a cute waistband I try to pair them with a crop top or a light tank for a half tuck.

This weekend I decided to take a risk with my hair and try something fun. I'm transitioning from a relaxed hair to natural hair (chemically straight to my natural texture) and I want to use as little heat as possible so I tested out Senegalese twist and this is the result. I was also looking for a cute hair style that will outlast my dancing skills at the BeyoncĂ© Concert this Friday! I wasn't sure how I would feel about the outcome but I am very happy!

Eyebrow Inspiration

Friday, June 21, 2013



As a kid I remember two specific memories about my eyebrows, the first being my dad telling my sister and I, "Don't touch your eyebrows kiddos!" The second and slightly more embarassing memory is of me shaving off the front of my eyebrows and coloring them in with permanent marker and sitting at dinner thinking no one would notice! I grew up with "caterpillar brows" and around the eighth grade I decided to pluck them into a straight very very very thin line and I've been trying to get them back to their natural state ever sense.

I'm currently loving the full brow and hope that they are around to stay. The most important thing is to find the perfect shape for your face (a more detailed post coming on that soon). Here are a few of my inspirations. What are your eye brow experiences and what your favorite trends?

I'm always in awe when I see someone on the red carpet wear something from a brand or a boutique where I shop (think Helen Hunt wearing H&M to the Oscars or BeyoncĂ© wearing Top Shop).  Jessica Clark of HBO's True Blood is a celebrity who often wears attainable and affordable fashion and makes stuns on the red carpet.
 
True Blood's Jessica Clark donned this gorgeous leather bodice and silk skirt number while attending the season premiere party of the hit HBO series on May 11th in Hollywood. Here is a way to get her look with the actual dress and a shorter option for a hot date night (hey boys!)

National Best Friends Day with Line Knit Wear

Saturday, June 8, 2013



"We had the foundation of a very solid friendship that we developed in university that was based on a lot of respect, trust, and time." 



Who doesn't want to live their dream and create something amazing with their best friend?

John Muscat and Jennifer Wells met in college. Muscat says, "Jenn and I participated in one of the the largest AIDS fund raising fashion shows in Canada. Jenn was one of the designers and I worked on the organization team." Exploring different paths, Muscat majored in Business and Wells in Fashion Design. Following graduation, Muscat moved to Toronto and began working with Millennium showroom. He then brought Wells over to work with one of the brands he represented, Body Body. After discovering a gap in the luxury knitwear marketplace, the friends decided to meld their areas of expertise and launch LINE Knitwear.


Line Successes: After 13 years of revolutionizing the knitwear market, LINE can currently be found at over 800 boutiques, department stores and e-commerce sites worldwide. The signature blends have established a following by many celebrities including Cameron Diaz, Katie Holmes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Cindy Crawford, Drew Barrymore and Jenna Dewan-Tatum to name a few. In March 2010, Line debuted its private showing of their first hand crafted Runway Collection, and have since been the most buzzed about show during Toronto Fashion Week.  

"We had the foundation of a very solid friendship that we developed in university that was based on a lot of respect, trust, and time." 
"If disaster strikes, as it always does, if one person freaks out the other naturally stays calm... I have always been more of the business head and strategist and Jenn the creative, and as time goes on I feel I have gotten more creative, and Jenn is now very business oriented."
 
LINE's successes are a true testimate to the friendship behind the brand.  Muscat and Wells are able to play off each other's strengths and weaknesses, creating a solid partnership.
