Favorites | 5 Trends To Spice Up Your Easter Wardrobe!

If you’re anything like me, then you’ve probably spent the Winter season wearing black and grey outfits. But come March, I suddenly felt the need to add some color to spice things up a bit. Suddenly I’m wearing emerald tops, turquoise ballerinas, and doing something I’ve never done- painting my nails orange!

With Spring in full bloom and Easter Sunday merely 2 days away, I though it would be fun to share some trends that can make your wardrobe colorful and fun to welcome the sunny days ahead. Read on to find out more.

Yellow

From painting Easter eggs to welcoming baby chicks into your home this holiday, to me Easter is all about colors. So why not experiment with a bright hue like yellow? Take note from Jennifer Lawrence who flaunts her figure in a mustard peplum number or get comfy in a chunky sweater like Jessica Alba’s and pair it with distressed jeans for a Saturday afternoon in the sun. If you’re heading to a fancy event, go for a bright yellow dress with sequins all over just like Vanessa Hudgens did for her appearance on the Late Show with Dave Letterman.

Stripes

Stripes are a great trend to explore this Spring. Rachel McAdams is the best example of how to master this look as she wears 4 different shades of blue in one dress that are all on trend. Rachel completes her look with two toned pumps and a white trench coat. You can still be fashionable in black, just pick a white and black striped dress and pair it with colorful pumps like Jamie Chung did at a Land Rover event.

Florals

I’m not really big on the floral thing, but it’s everywhere these days I might just try it. Take a look at Jenna Dewan Tatum who is casual chic in a floral maxi number; the mummy to be’s dress is mostly grey, but pops with shades of red and orange here and there. You can also add a jean jacket if it gets chilly at night. Another way to experiment with the floral trend is to go for a darker mini that pops with bright little flowers here and there like Reese Witherspoon’s Madewell dress.

White

White is everywhere this year! And what’s better than white? Try pairing it with lace or even sheer panels for a fresh Summer look. Camilla Alves wears a dress she designed herself for INC that’s covered with lace all over, while supermodel Miranda Kerr flaunts her sculpted body in a white top with sheer panels around the bust and a white skirt with patterned cutouts all over the hem area. If you’re not a fan of an all-white outfit, then pick a white handbag like Miranda’s (hers is Prada) that goes with different pieces of your wardrobe for the coming season.

 

White Lace

 

 

Accessories, Accessories, Accessories!

One of the best ways of easing yourself into Easter/Spring is investing in some bright accessories. Pick out yellow pumps like Beyonce’s, or yellow sunnies for a day out like Taylor Swift. If you’re in for a splurge, check out Khloe Kardashian’s yellow Hermes Birkin Bag- who wouldn’t want to have that stunning handbag no matter what season is coming!

Wishing you all a great LONG weekend! And a very Happy Easter to everyone :)

Favorites | paRs Charms by Roula Nahas

I was surfing Facebook a few days ago and came across a fan page entitled “paRs”. After reading a little bit about it, I found out that the brand belonged to Roula Nahas, Marketing and PR Manager of Bestseller ME.

 

Pars

 

I had the chance to meet Roula at Vero Moda Hamra last year during the brand’s Miss Fashionista styling competition. In the two minute elevator ride and brief discussion we shared, I realized why the brand is as successful as it is; Roula is driven, she knows what she wants, and knows how to make it happen.

So it is no surprise that Roula became the creator and designer behind paRs which is a series of “gold plated charms with carefully engraved words that have a direct path to the soul”. Powerful words such as “LOVE”, “BLESSED”, and “HAPPY” among others are engraved on the circular charm, with the phrase “MAKE IT HAPPEN” found on the back side.

 

BlessedSmile

 

What is even more inspiring to me is the brand’s Facebook fan page; I love reading the quotes (see images below) that are posted almost daily as a motivational reminder to readers that they have the power to change things and make their dreams a reality.

 

be a woman and make it happenGive it ur alli can and i will

Out of the collection, I’ve decided that the charm I want to buy first is the one that reads “Happy”; I’ve been down lately, and there’s nothing I would like more than to turn the charm over and remind myself that I can  “MAKE IT HAPPEN” no matter what!

 

Happy

 

paRs charms are available at Kulte Verdun and Cream Boutique in Saifi Village.

Lopez put the stunning heels on full display as she posed for pictures on the red carpet with boyfriend Casper Smart.

Sofia Vergara is one of my favorite celebrities; she’s funny, outspoken, and looks good in anything! Sofia gave birth to her son Manolo when she was only 20 years old, so it should come as no surprise that this duo is extremely close (she’s 40) to the extent that they shot a “Got Milk” ad together!

 

Sofia

 

 

My favorite Victoria’s Secret angel Miranda Kerr is one doting supermodel mommy! She’s constantly photographed all over New York City carrying her son Flynn. Miranda and Orlando’s good looks have clearly been passed on to Flynn who is absolutely adorable!

From pop star to footballer’s wife to fashion designer, Victoria Beckham has accomplished so much since emerging as Posh Spice in the 90s. This stylish celebrity is also an amazing mother to Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper, taking her kids everywhere she goes including dad David’s football matches in Paris. She even makes carrying little Harper around airports look effortlessly stylish!

Jennifer Lopez is known to wear big designer names-from Pucci to Zuhair Murad to Versace. And her kids are no different!

Celebrities are just like us (well sort of). Once they find an item they’re passionately in love with, they stick to it for an entire season!

Check out these 5 star favs!

We all know Blake Lively is a huge fan of Laurraine Shwartz; her recent engagement and wedding rings were designed by the celebrity jeweler. The Gossip Girl star has been photographed wearing these emerald stud earrings on the red carpet, at press events, and even while running errands.

Jessica Biel has been looking like a sexy mail woman this past Winter season, sporting Christian Louboutin’s “Farida” messenger bag all over New York City. The trendy leopard print looks fantastic and is the perfect accessory to any outfit!

Kate Moss has been a recent obsession of mine; the 39 year old supermodel has been having a great year so far, even appearing in Givenchy’s eye wear campaign. So it should come as no surprise that the British beauty recently collaborated with Longchamp for the Kate Moss for Longchamp collection. Moss has been photographed carrying this Spring yellow clutch all over London!

American fashionista and actress Emma Stone appears to be a big fan of this Maje “Ribiera” jacket; wearing it has helped her brave the freezing cold Winter temps in New York City. You may also want to know that this particular item is soldout worldwide!

It’s back to Jessica Biel who’s been hitting the red carpet in beautiful blue hues that are accentuated with these stunning electric blue suede “Anouk” Jimmy  Choos. Jessica makes walking in these sky high pointed pumps look like a walk in the park!

Spotted | Kim Kardashian (Finally) Stuns in Maternity Wear

First there was that weird lace patched dress she wore to ring in the new year in Las Vegas with Kanye West. Then she wore those seriously weird velvet peplum pants, followed by an extremely busy and unflattering maxi dress, leading up to Paris fashion week were she put on a conservative skin tight men’s tuxedo to Givenchy’s Winter 2013 fashion show.

In a few words, Kim Kardashian has been making some questionable maternity wear decisions, even admitting that she struggles to find things that don’t make her look heavy, especially since her baby bump hasn’t exactly “popped” yet.

So, it was a relief to see her sporting a different look and opting to wear flats instead of the (dangerously) sky high heels she’s been wearing so far. Kim-who is five months pregnant- stepped out in Beverly Hills wearing a breezy beige dress and cream blazer that concealed her growing baby bump.  Metalic flats completed the look along with some very on trend stacked bracelets and recently cut bangs.

Here’s hoping this beautiful look inspires Kim to select some more bump friendly outfits that are fashionable yet comfortable enough for the mummy to be!

Spotted | Nicki Minaj is Almost Unrecognizable on Elle Cover!

Nicki Minaj- is that you?!

The rapper known for sporting big hair and even wigs sometimes, who likes to constantly wear stage makeup, bright fushia lips and “big crazy lashes”, is anything but that on the cover of Elle’s April issue.

 

Nicki

 

The magazine’s beauty team is said to have taken a “less is more” approach for the shoot with the star opting to let the big hair and wild makeup go replacing them with natural locks and simple illuminating makeup. Instead of a crazy costume, Minaj wore a basic black pants and a sexy unzipped leather jacket with gold buckles on the sleeves. Of the shoot, the Pink Friday songstress said: “I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”

 

Elle

 

Minaj also opened up to the magazine about making it as a female artist in the mostly male dominated rap world and presented women with powerful words, saying: “my advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want—and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge.”

I can’t wait for this Elle issue to hit newsstands to see the rest of this natural shoot. I think Nicki looks great, and I for one, would love to see more of her like this!

MY mom. These simple words are such a true reflection of who she is. She really can move the world’s biggest mountains and she’s been doing it since the day I was born. To me, she is the perfect example of what a woman should be; driven, strong, outspoken, firm, and accomplished, yet soft, caring, emotional, joyful, and so very loving, and I am beyond honored to be her daughter today and everyday!
