Happy Valentine’s Day! 🌹 Life is too short not to celebrate the big and the little moments! Having my girlfriends over for a mini get together! We’re kicking up our heels (and off) and celebrating with some amazing cocktails, Chambord Royale. It’s supers easy to make - @chambord_au liqueur, any fizz you fancy and add a raspberry to top it off! Cheers! 🥂👑#chambordqueen #chambordau #sp #chambord

Meet Aria and her boyfriend James. 👧🏻🧒🏻 We always jokingly called them gf and bf! He is always so affectionate to her (by touching her ears) and sharing all his favourite toys with her! Swipe left 👉🏼 Olivia is like a big sister to Aria! She is always looking after her and letting Aria play with her hair apparently because Aria doesn’t have as much hair 😂 Kids are so cute! She’s so lucky to have James and Olivia to grow up with!

Late last year Aria and I flew to Sydney for a beautiful parents retreat with @biostimeau, a global leader in paediatric nutrition. Being a relatively new mum, I loved being able to learn from different leading experts from nutrition to exercise! Today I joined a bunch of incredible parents in celebrating the arrival of Biostime in Australia. Watch my Instagram stories for more! #biostimeaulaunch #nextgeneration

Once you’ve settled on a shade, New York City colorist Aura Friedman, whose clients include everyone from Carolyn Murphy to Caroline Polachek and Sky Ferreira, says the only rule for dyeing your eyebrows is to match warm tones with warm tones, cool with cool. That, and be prepared to return to the salon at least once every four weeks.

The proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber.

The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling. Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

Fall decorating presents the opportunity to revel in luxury. Fabrics become more substantial, color palettes transition to rich hues, and just about every design decision for the season revolves around cultivating a cozy living environment. In an effort to help you make your space ideal for fall, a group of design tastemakers reveal the decor trends to expect in homes across the country this season, along with a few lessons you’ll want to consider.The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling.

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, entered into the world online fashion critic earlier this year when he discovered a pair of $425 jeans on sale at Nordstrom’s from the brand PRPS. He positioned them as another volley in “our country’s War on Work.” He continued, “They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.” Fair point. Really though we were also a bit offended that DSquared2 already did the whole purposefully muddied jeans a few years ago. In fact, Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing the originals when she first started dating Blake Shelton. See, there are occasional situation.

We get why people would be outraged from a certain view, but we also think at least some of these designers are in on the joke. Maybe the only question is what exactly the punchline is. Then again, when you think about it the entire world of high fashion is taking something mundane (clothing; we all have to wear it), and turning it into coveted and cutting-edge luxury items.

 

Life experience brings out different emotions and different perspectives on things. I just want to be constantly evolving.

People were absolutely astounded, at least in between that time that they read the Tweet or headline and when they actually go to the details, that Prada was selling a $150 “paper clip.” In reality, of course, it was a sterling silver money clip shaped like a paper clip (and when you really think about it, all clips really do the same thing). $150 is a lot for a paper clip, but it’s actually not that eye boggling when you look at other high-end money clips.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

    There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum

      As a finishing touch, Yadim reached for a pot of loose red pigment that he swiped from the Maybelline labs. “It’s very volatile,” he warned, as one speck of cherry-colored powder could result in a smeary lip mess, but he firmly believes that “every woman should be able to overdraw her lip and not feel like she’s wearing tons of drag makeup

    The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

    “When you think of matte lipstick, you don’t usually think young,” said makeup artist Yadim, backstage at Jason Wu. “A red lip can easily go very madame.” Unless, of course, you’re talking about velvety red inspired by Helmut Newton’s portraits of supes like Cindy Crawford and Jerry Hall.

    Next, he strategically overdrew the perimeter, “respecting the integrity” of each girl’s natural shape by filling in the Cupid’s bow to create “hills” rather than “peaks,” and dipping the middle point of the lower lip ever so slightly—keeping the lines extending straight into the outer corners of the mouth instead of “curling them under.”

    Last night at Adam Selman, the clothes took inspiration from a nudist colony in Hawaii, featuring punchy tropical prints, but the nails, designed by manicurist Madeline Poole, are naked in their own way. Bare save for a random blob of deep blue polish (Poole used Complete Salon Manicure in Dark Hue-Mor) on each nail, the look is, “something a girl could do DIY sitting at her desk. Like drawing on your finger with Sharpie,” says Poole who created a makeshift circle stamp by pressing a carpenter’s nail into the end of a pencils eraser, but “you can use anything to make a dot,” Poole says.
