Madewell + Solange Fall 2012 Inspired

Madewell hit the nail on the head with the pieces it has for it's Fall 2012 Collection. It was brilliant for Solange to be the spokesmodel for this collection as well. The stylist really brought the fun girl Solange is out of these pieces. Plus, it's such a bonus that all of these looks can be recreated.

Solange has been the talk of the town for the last few months. From hair to style, she's made some kind of influence in the fashion world.

Which is your favorite look from the collection?

Mixing bright colors in for Fall is essential to my wardrobe because I am not ready to let go of Summer!   Madewell's stylish looks speak attitude and fun! Bravo to Madewell and Solange!

Summer Lips

Since Summer is coming to an end and Fall is around the corner, I thought I'd show you some of my go to lipsticks that I have been wearing. These colors have been on every trip I've been on and probably stashed in my purse while I was running errands.

I'm super excited to be wearing deep red lips for Fall. I adored it last Autumn/Winter and I knew it would be a trend that would return. I've even started to purchase a few things for my Fall wardrobe, but I feel pressured! I'm really not ready to let go of Summer. Summer please don't go!!

The Mister and I decided to start celebrating early, so we did a three-day vacation in San Antonio this past weekend. We went to Seaworld, toured Downtown, experienced the Riverwalk, and had very good drinks at one of the most popular bars. We've already made plans to come back.

It's Monday and the Olympics are over! :( I missed out on the closing ceremony, but plan to catch on somewhere somehow! I think Gabby Douglas, Missy Franklin, and Sonia Richards-Ross were my highlights from the Olympics. The Mister asked me this weekend, what was the most disappointing event from the Olympics and I told him the Men's Gymnastics. I was really hoping they would do a better job!

What event at the Olympics was the most disappointing to you?
I'd love to hear your thoughts!


Fly Away

Last week FLEW by! I've been doing some cleaning and organizing to my new space. It's actually amazing how a new environment can uplift your spirits. After re-discovering my clothes, I'm also still loving summer colors, although everyone is talking and waiting for Fall to arrive. I feel like Summer is going by so fast and I've been putting as much color in my wardrobe as possible.

This bright, fun top can be worn so many ways which is something I look for in every piece I wear. The motif print of the butterflies adds a feminine touch and gives the impression that summer is here to stay. The high-low hem brings interest to this top that screams "Casual Chic"!

We've entered one of the best month's of the year! (Leo girl talking! lol) My birthday is next week and I'm super excited! Nothing set in stone yet of my activities but I'll definitely keep you in the know.

Let's have a wonderful week everyone!


The BEST REVIEW: HANAair Professional Hair Dryer

 I was kindly sent this dryer from Misikko to review. "The Premiere Hair Dryer" is the nickname of this blow dryer. I'm going to divide my review into categories on what I think is important when purchasing a hair dryer.


 SALON RECOMMENDED! This blow dryer is a bit heavy compared to your normal hair dryer. I've compared this dryer with my random one I purchased from a drug store and it doesn't compare. The motor is of great quality which brings 2300 watts of power which is why it's named one of the best hair dryers.

Another detail I noticed about this dryer is the cord. I know it's random, but it caught my interest! lol The cord is a thick rubber extension which reminds me of a Cat-5 cable -- ethernet cord for internet service -- okay that was a little nerdy. Any who, it's really thick and it doesn't get tangled while drying your hair.  

Drying Time
I mostly like to let my hair air dry for about 5-10 minutes before using a blow dryer, but normally it takes me 25 minutes to blow my hair from drench to completely dry. I decided to let my hair air dry exactly 5 minutes and preceded with this blow dryer and it took only 7 minutes to dry completely!

I must admit, I was a bit confused on the settings. The first time I turned it on it blew nothing but COLD air. I began to think that maybe the dryer had to 'warm-up' before the actually heat came out. Then I noticed the COOL button was pressed OUT. (see video)  There are three control settings on this dryer and I finally began to understand how this blow dryer worked. Using these settings allows you to regulate your heat setting. At first I was unsure about the settings, but began to LOVE my options.

There is only one attachment for this hair dryer, which is okay for me. If you normally use the 'comb' attachment for your hair dryer, this may be a negative for you.

Although this dryer comes with a lovely dust bag for traveling, it would definitely stay at home. It's quite expensive at $195, but it's lasted me seven months so far. It's a dryer that you are able to control as far as temperature which is something that is important for me. The low emission of EMFs helps with the heat damage for your hair, so saving money for this tool would be an asset to your hair health.

To finish my hair styling, I used the Chi flat iron as well as Chi hair products such as the Chi Silk Infusion which makes my hair soft and protects it from further damage.


What do you think of this product? Do you have the HanaAir? Do you use a Chi flat iron or any of their hair products? I'd love your feedback!
