Shoe of the Week – Kate Spade Dani Too Heels


For as long as I can remember, I’ve always adored glitter heels! There is something so fun, fabulous and feminine about them. It was love at first sight with these Kate Spade Dani Too Heels… aren’t they gorgeous? I love love love the rose gold glitter and the almond toe shape.

When people ask me, “what’s your favorite color?”, I often have to reply that it’s metallics! I just love gold and silver, they are the ultimate neutrals and work with everything – all while adding a touch of glamour!

I really believe unique, quality pieces are worth the investment and these beauties make the grade. Wondering what to wear them with? Girl, wear them with everything. Everywhere. Everyday. Dress up a cute jeans and simple tee combo with sparkle heels. Classic LBD? These rose gold Kate Spade Dani Too Heels are a perfect pairing. Add some personality to your work wear and slip these on, a pencil skirt suit never looked so chic!

You need to be warned though, you’re going to be constantly stopped with “Your shoes are gorgeous!” and “Ooooh, where did you get those heels?!”…

Nourish Your Hair with the New Dove Regenerative Range


I’m delighted to collaborate with Dove to share their brand new Dove Regenerative Nourishment range of hair care products, available at Walgreens. This year, I refuse to let harsh winter weather damage and dry my hair – especially before New York Fashion Week! Using this new collection made me realize how easy it is to keep my hair looking and feeling 100% regenerated, smooth and easy to style.

The new Regenerative Nourishment collection returns smoothness and strength to your locks, frequently taken away by blow drying, flat ironing and curling… basically everything we do on the daily to look glam! It restores the internal structural integrity of damaged hair back to that of undamaged hair and with supreme conditioning and nourishing properties, gives hair a healthy look and super soft feel.

Dove Regenerative Shampoo Conditioner hair serum oil review

Unlike many products out there, this line was specially formulated to take hair beyond repair by replenishing important nutrients and reinforcing strands inside and out. It’s the ultimate combat to cold weather damage and delivers 100% visibly damage-free hair. You can discover more about the results in this video.

One of the products I loved using is the Dove Regenerative Shampoo. It eliminates signs of damage, replenishes nutrients and reinforces hair inside and out, making damaged hair stronger against breakage.

I followed up with the Dove Regenerative Conditioner which my hair just seemed to soak up! It is nourishing and left my hair smooth and tangle-free.

My final step to gorgeous hair is the Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil. I’ve always been completely obsessed with using a hair oil after washing and this one was brilliant, it didn’t weigh down my hair or leave it oily – two things I can’t stand! This serum-in-oil brings together the nourishing power of an oil, with serum restorative qualities to create one potent formula. It also strengthens and prevents split ends. The oil part of the formula penetrates deep inside the hair and nourishes. This oil also interacts with the serum part, to thin its texture and improve spreading on the hair surface, which provides excellent smoothness, shine and manageability (styling is so easy!). After my hair was dry, I noticed it was beautiful, shiny and soft. After using the shampoo and conditioner, I spread three pumps of Serum-in-Oil between my hands and applied it to my towel dried hair. Then sometimes I just leave my hair to air dry, other times I blow dry and iron or curl.

Fab Favorites Link Up – Falling for Blush Colors


Happy Friday! Can you believe January is already over? It’s happening again, last year flew by like lightening and I was hoping this year wouldn’t feel the same. Ugh!

One of my major obsessions this year has been blush colors. Whether it’s clothes, shoes, homewares or just a hint of blush in accessories, I adore it. Maybe because the vibe is all about love this month and Valentine’s Day is only a week away, I feel my color crush has grown even stronger.

Shoe of the Week – Steve Madden Over The Knee Boots


Over-the-knee boots are major every year, but they can cost a fortune! However I must admit, I do think they’re worth the investment. I managed to snag a beautiful pair of Stuart Weitzman OTK boots at 50% off last year and have lived in them ever since. This season though, I’ve seen so many almost identical pairs and the leader of the pack is definitely these Steve Madden Over the Knee Boots.

If you haven’t already, get your hands on a pair of these beauties! Live in them the rest of winter and transition into spring by styling them with cute dresses. One thing is for sure, you’ll be back in them again come fall… I always look forward to pulling out my boots! Do you too? I find there’s something so chic about tall boots.

I’d love to know what you think of these? Are you an OTK boots girl, or more partial to a bootie?
