Last season I went backstage with Aveda for the Tibi Fall/Winter 2018 runway show. I was able to capture the latest hair and beauty trends as well as the newest pieces from Tibi. The collection is full of beautiful and vibrant colors in very classic silhouettes. Each piece is oversize for Fall, which I love especially for layering. There are hints of metallic running through the collection, a trend we will be seeing a lot this season. I personally love the faux fur bomber jackets. Take a look below!

We constantly hear the words ethical fashion, but if you are like me, sometimes it can be confusing in what that exactly means! A simple definition is that ethical fashion involves clothing and cosmetics that are manufactured in a way that causes minimal harm to others and the environment. A growing number of people are investing in ethical brands in order to preserve our ecosystem and promote better work environments.

Today, let’s discuss the four main types of ethical fashion.

An emerging trend spotted on bloggers and celebrities alike is wearing a trench coat as a dress. Meghan Trainor recently wore the trend by Victoria Hayes, a New York City designer, at the TCA Upfronts in Hollywood.

Coming back to America after traveling around the world, was nothing less than a shock to the system. I learned so much, grew as a person, and changed while I was away. One thing that ignited in my persona is the desire to endlessly explore.
While away, I gained a new found appreciation for New York City. After visiting 7 countries and 12 cities abroad, there is no place like New York. It is the melting pot of so many types of people and cultures. There is so much going on at all times of the day and night. There are a variety of neighborhoods packed with culture and sightseeing. It’s impossible to go hungry with all the delicious food options.
The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has begun for all card holders! This insane once a year sale will open up to the public on July 21st, 2018. If you haven’t shopped the sale before, here are a few tips on what to look for.
What You Need To Know
First, all the items are completely brand new Fall pieces that haven’t hit the market yet. So yes, this is a sale on NEW clothes and shoes. This also means items sell out fast! If you see something you love, grab it before it runs out.
The sale takes place both in stores and online, but only in stores for Canada. I prefer online to avoid the crowds and busy dressing rooms, plus shipping is free on all orders and returns!
Trend alert, paper bag pants are making a massive breakout. The signature silhouette of a paper bag pant is loose fitted with a tied waist. The pants typically hit right around the natural waist line and have a straight leg. This Summer in particular, striped paper bag pants are becoming increasingly trendy to rock. They encompass the nautical theme effortlessly while having a relax fit. Cropped paper bag pants are also very trendy, and can be easier to styled if your more of a minimalist.
Linens for Summer is as ground breaking as florals for Spring, but there is a real reason behind why this particular fabric works best for warmer weather. It all stems from the makeup and weave of the fibers. You may or may not know that linen is made from the flax plants. Yes, the same plant that gives hipster açai bowls and smoothies a kick of fiber.
Because of their genetic makeup, linen fabrics are highly breathable, absorbs moisture quicker, wicks sweat away from the body faster, and is stronger than cotton. Meaning you will feel cooler, more comfortable, and the clothes will last longer. All great qualities for Summer clothes.

My recent travels brought me to the incredible city of Tokyo. When I landed in the beautiful and spacious cosmopolitan, I was blown away by several of it’s design structures.

So if you are a collector, or love beautiful brand name watches, you need to check out this watch shop in Japan.
