Sparkle #144: French Manicures for Fall

Taking a break from all the Halloween posts on the blog, today I wanted to share three french manicure styles which will definitely help update your look for fall – winter 2015. French manicures have always been my favorite nail trend, and no matter what base shade I end up wearing, I find it hard to resist adding a french tip to it! Now that the weather is turning cooler, I am updating my nail polish stash for the season by adding more bold and metallic shades to my collection. There are lots of trends you can try for fall and winter by mixing deep, rich hues like wine with sparkly colors…

Sparkle #132: Fall Fashion Moodboard

I love creating mood boards! They are great for visualizing different elements of a theme. You can experiment with multiple components, put together contrasting as well as complementary elements and play around with different compositions till you find one which feels just right! A mood board is an effective visual way to communicate a certain idea, after all visuals work the best when it comes to catching attention! To celebrate my love for fall, I have put together a fall fashion mood board which will give you some ideas on how to update your wardrobe for the coming season. For me, autumn means color blocking, cozy knits,…

Sparkle #113: Would you throw your Makeup?

I am a big hoarder when it comes to makeup products, I just cannot find the courage to throw anything out! And what makes this worse is the fact that I am always adding more items to my stash – new products, colors and brands. I have a big drawer filled with lipsticks, eyeliners, concealers and what not! I rarely use makeup in my daily routine, so this treasure chest is exploited only during special occasions. This is why the following info graphic really caught my attention. If I have to go by the timelines advised below, I will probably have to build my makeup collection…

Sparkle #108: A Pink & Blue Summer

I am in love with two colors this summer: dreamy lavender pink and ice cold blue. There’s something about pairing pink and blue together, whichever shade or hue you might pick, it almost always works! And when you pair lighter shades of pink and blue, you get a palette which is fresh, happy and adds the perfect pop of color to a hot summer day. These two colors remind me of all things pleasant: cherry blossoms, cotton candy and Disney princesses! They have a surreal and vintage vibe to them, so make sure you pair these two whenever you want to channel your inner Cinderella! To celebrate my love for these…
