Nicholas K recently opened their first brick and mortar in New York City. The duo design team have always been one to watch during New York Fashion Week, and is thrilling to see their collection up close. “We wanted to have a canvas to share our vision, meet our clients and educate them about the versatility of each design and the fibers we use.” – Nicholas Kunz.
The store is located 435 Broome Street, the heart of Soho, and features the designers’ Fall 2018 collection. The space includes white wash floors, beautiful tall plants, and parachutes from the ceiling. The interior design concept reflects an eco-conscious and sustainability that the brand is known for. Nicholas K is part of the CFDA + Lexus Eco Initiative, championing conscious living, environmental stewardship, and social responsibility.
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. Gratefully, nowadays there are more choices when it comes to buying ethical fashion, while in previous years it was limited to certain styles. Today, let’s discuss the four main types of ethical fashion.
Happy Motivational Monday! I am enjoying this new series of discussing mental health, self-worth, and empowerment, and I hope you are too. When I first started blogging (way before this blog even existed), all I would write about was how to find joy in life. I remembered how effortless it was to find topics to discuss because there were always obstacles to overcome and ways to learn from each.
In case you missed it, the most recent articles were about the mental health affects of Instagram, and why you shouldn’t work for free. If you haven’t seen those yet, go ahead and read the awesome topics and especially the discussions formulated in the comment section! So awesome to read everyone’s input.
Back in 2016, there was a popular watch company that so many bloggers worked with. They were the “it” brand to collaborate with and I couldn’t wait for my turn! Then, one random week day I received and email from this popular watch brand’s team. They were interested in work with me on Instagram. I was so excited! I read through their briefing, and was kind of taken back by all the requests. It was the most extensive briefing I had received at that point, but I didn’t care because I wanted to work with this company for months now. I followed up the email exchange with the typical, “I am very interested, what is your budget?”.
That’s when things got interesting. It turned out that this “it” watch company isn’t interested in paying bloggers or influencers even when requesting at least 3 very meticulous Instagram post per watch. Guess what happened? I declined the collaboration, and soon enough a majority of other bloggers and influencers stopped working with the brand as well.
It is hard to simply walk down the street without someone holding their phone arms length in front of their face trying to get that perfect selfie. The term, “do it for the ‘gram”, has become an all too familiar phrase. Trying to get “insta famous” or become and “instagram model”, is the new profession for our youths. But what is happening to our mental well being?
Did you see the last post? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening right now! If you haven’t already, take a peek at our top fashion picks from the sale. Today we are discussing the top 10 beauty picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
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!
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.
Summer weather requires slight adjustments to our beauty routine. In the winter, it’s all about the perfect moisturizers, full coverage foundation, slight bronzing, and red lips. However, Summer brings warmer weather, sun exposure, and natural tans. Meaning, that heavy winter look isn’t exactly going to stand a chance in 80 degree weather. It also requires skin protection against different environmental elements.
For these reasons, I recently started to incorporate BB (beauty balm) and CC (color correcting) creams into my beauty routine once Spring hits. They are lighter formula foundations that often have SPF infused into them. Their sheerness makes the makeup breathable and last longer in the warmer months. Plenty include anti-aging properties, skincare elements, and flawless finishes.
