Friday Faves – Best Shows On Netflix + Fall Fashion Under $100

I don’t know what we all did before Netflix. Actually, I do, we probably got lots more done. There’s just something so nice about crawling into bed after a long day of work, opening my laptop and watching some of the best shows on Netflix with Chris (my husband). I wanted to share a few of our faves today and would also love you to share yours, I am always looking for the best Netflix shows to watch.

So, our number one Netflix show at the moment is definitely Schitts Creek. Have you seen it? Seriously, OMG. Hilarious. I got my mom onto watching it too and showed her how to get Netlifx on her tv, she called and told me she couldn’t stop watching them (and it wasn’t just because she didn’t know how to turn it off). It’s hands down probably one of my favorite shows of all time. The characters are so accurate – it’s just what I envisage a few Beverly Hills trust fund kids to be like… and their parents. Yes. Who’s seen it? I am dying to talk about it, so leave a comment and let’s chat. Who’s your favorite character? I love David, he is just too good!

Best shows on netflix to watch schitts creek review

My all time favorite and arguably the best show on Netflix is Schitts Creek. Seriously, do yourself a favor and watch it! Hilarious.

 

My other fave is an oldie but a goodie, The Mindy Project. This will always have a special place in my heart, I love Mindy! Right or wrong, I find her inner dialogue somewhat scarily similar to my thoughts sometimes. She’s amazing and so relatable. Who’s watched The Mindy Project? Thoughts?

I still need to watch Lady Gaga’s ‘Five Foot Two’ Netflix Documentary. I saw some talk about it on E! News, she seems to get pretty real and candid. Have you seen this yet? What did you think?

Oh and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Poor sweet little Kimmy, I love her innocence and Titus with his ‘Lemonade-ing’ scene will always be one of my favorites. Who’s a Kimmy Schmidt fan?

I’d love to hear what shows you love, I need some new ones to move onto when I’m finished watching these. I always find it so sad when you get to the last episode… like, what do I do with my life now? When you binge watch a show, does anyone else find you get super invested in it too?

If you haven’t seen Schitts Creek, guys seriously do yourself a favor. Even my husband Chris loves it, so it’s not just for us girls. He’ll say to me at night, can we watch an episode of Schitts Creek before bed?  Umm, YES. Yes we can.

So after I’ve watched my nightly Netflix episode before bed, I usually sneak a little peak at my favorite shops online. We all have our rituals, right? There’s some of the cutest new season style in at the moment, I love fall fashion! These are some of my fave finds this week…

Style Sessions – 3 Wardrobe Basics Every Stylish Girl Needs

I love style that encompasses that unique vibe of classic and eternally chic, but still totally on-trend. I’m breaking down the 3 wardrobe basics every stylish girl needs…

3 Wardrobe Basics Every Stylish Girl Needs

It goes without saying a great pair of skinny jeans in a mid-blue denim tone are a must! What sets apart average jeans from those that are lust-worthy is the cut and way they hug your body. Over the years I think I would have tried on hundreds of pairs of jeans in my never-ending quest for the perfect pair. The day I finally found my go-to blue denim jeans, I think I squealed with delight in the fitting room. My all time favorite jeans are these Paige Transcend Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans and with over 175 five-star reviews, clearly I’m not the only one who thinks these are the best jeans ever.

Second on the wardrobe basics list is a white linen t-shirt. It channels all the right effortlessly chic cool girl vibes! A perfect pairing for jeans, skirts and shorts, it’s guaranteed to be the one piece you’ll thank your lucky fashion stars you found. The one I have is currently on sale for just $17 and also comes in black and grey, it’s literally the best.

Last but certainly not least, is a grey sweater. I must admit, I have a penchant for 100% cashmere sweaters. They are completely worth the investment and aside from being divinely soft, they’ll keep you warmer than any other fabric. Whether I’m braving a New York winter or a far more mild SoCal fall evening, cashmere is so versatile and regulated your body temperature almost magically. You don’t have to pay a fortune for cashmere either, every season I stock up on new cashmere from Nordstrom Rack and Century 21.

Do we have any of the same wardrobe basics? Otherwise, tell me – what is one piece that makes your style essentials list? These are mine…

In case you’re new here, Style Sessions is live every Tuesday. It’s all about sharing what we’ve been wearing, or if you’re on a budget, a virtual outfit you’d love to wear! Every week I also select someone to showcase as ‘Head Stylist’ in the next edition – it’s a perfect way to meet new bloggers, showcase your personal style and your blog.

Friday Faves – Blonde Hair Color Ideas

Do you want to know something crazy? I haven’t colored my hair in almost three years. It all started because after years and years of coloring my hair, from super blonde when I was younger to a really dark brunette tone four years ago, I realized I didn’t actually know what my real hair color was anymore. So I set out on a mission to go au natural and let my color grow out. Now, given it’s been two months shy of three years, the color I have is entirely mine and the hair is in such great, untouched condition.

Lately though, I’ve had this urge to shake things up and am tempted to lighten my hair a little. But then the other part of me thinks, you’ve come so far and it’s taken three years to grow your color out… what’s a girl to do?

of course in preparation, I have been looking on Pinterest at some blonde hair color ideas and wanted to share my faves with you.

Have you ever set out on a mission with your hair? What was it? Have you grown your hair color out at some point? Did you start coloring again and if so, what made you decide to leap back in?

Friday Faves: Links I Love – Best Online Shops, Celebrity News and Marketplaces

Like all of us, I spend a lot of time online and wanted to share with you the links I love. There’s websites I visit daily that have just become a part of my routine. Do you have a few of these too? I am quite partial to a good dose of celebrity news and love checking out fashion, beauty and homewares on sale at my favorite stores.

These are the links I love and website’s I’m currently spending my time on. I want to hear from you too! Leave a comment and let me know a few website’s you visit regularly. I’d love to check them out while I’m relaxing on the weekend!

 

Links I Love: Best Online Shops, Celebrity News and Marketplaces

Links I Love - Best Online Shops, Celebrity News and Marketplaces

 

Links I Love: Celebrity News

So I must confess, I basically start and end every day reading the latest celebrity news on TMZ.com. I love keeping up with the Kardashians (and they’re never short of drama), as well as getting all the insider info on who’s loving and leaving who. I’ve been reading TMZ.com for years and they’re always the first to break news and insider info. Basically, if it’s not on TMZ or E! News, I just don’t believe it!

 

Links I love: Online Sale Outlets

You never have to pay full price for anything these days and my all time favorite sale outlet is Century21. I visit their department stores in New York all the time and they are incredible. With massive discounts on designer fashion and homewares, it’s the best place to shop. With Christmas coming up, it’s also a perfect place to get everyone amazing gifts without breaking the bank. As an example, a few years ago I had been wanting J Brand leather pants so badly, but didn’t want to drop $1k on them. I searched and found a pair at Century21 in New York for just under $200. Amazing!

I’m also a fan of Saks off Fifth and who doesn’t love Nordstrom Rack, am I right? All these stores ship internationally too. So wherever you are, happy shopping!

 

Links I Love: Creative Marketplaces

Being in business myself, I have such respect and admiration for other creatives. So much heart, soul, time and dedication goes into growing your own business and I love that creative marketplaces like Etsy allow us to live our dreams. I have an Etsy store called SHE Society, it is my website design business. I have been so lucky to work with people all over the world on their blog design, business website design or shop design. It’s an incredible community to be a part of! I choose to support other small business owners and often shop Etsy for beautiful homewares, hand crafted perfume (I wore ‘Amongst The Waves’ by Olivine Atelier for my wedding) and party supplies. I am always in awe of how creative people are!

 

These are the sites I visit everyday, I’d love to hear what your favorite websites are? Leave a comment and share them below, I’m keen to check them out over the weekend!

Friday Faves: Currently Covet – Alinda Over The Knee Boots + More

How fabulous are these Alinda Over The Knee Boots! Ooooh! They’re super gorgeous, come in a lot of colors and best of all, totally budget friendly. They look like dupes for far more expensive designer options like Stuart Weitzman OTK boots.

I’m also in love with this Veda Max Classic Leather Jacket, it’s a feminine cut that looks equally fabulous with jeans and dresses. I have a very similar Vince leather jacket just like this one and have worn it year after year – it never goes out of style! Unlike other leather jackets it doesn’t have a really stiff boxy shape, so it flatters your body beautifully and looks amazing with dresses.

I hope you enjoy checking out my currently covet list, what do you think of my picks? Which is your fave? I hope you all enjoy a beautiful weekend and thank you so much for being here and part of Style Elixir. It truly means so much to me!

Friday Faves – Our Beautiful Wedding Invitations

Designing our beautiful wedding invitations was such a fun part of wedding planning! I feel when you create wedding invites, their vibe really sets the scene for the whole day and gives guests an idea of what to expect. Our guest list just included those we are truly closest to and have been a big part of our lives, so we had around 75 people. This allowed us to create a beautiful invitation set for each guest. After doing lots of research online, I found Wedding Paper Diva’s and was blown away with how many designs and personalization options they had. This meant that whatever I dreamed up, I could create!

I’ve always loved metallics and neutral tones, so I chose a gorgeous rose gold color font and heavy ivory card stock for our church invitations. I wanted something simple but elegant and pretty. However, not so frilly that it wouldn’t suit Chris. I created the design online and showed Chris the proof, he thought it was fantastic. The whole process of finding the perfect invitation to reflect us, personalize it and have it printed was incredibly easy – and importantly, budget friendly.

Our Beautiful Wedding Invitations

As part of our wedding invite set, we also included a separate card for the reception, along with an RSVP card. This had a fun option for guests to nominate the song that will get them on the dance floor. Finally, we added a little Details card which had some helpful information for guests and our wedding website with registry information.

Side note, I couldn’t find a wedding website design that I liked or a cute URL to give to guests. For example, ours was just laurenandchris.we-do.love …how fab is that! You don’t want to put a big clunky one with numbers or a business name. None of the other wedding websites I found had built-in Google maps for directions, or an online registry that allowed us to choose any gift (from anywhere or anything). So I built a wedding website for us with all of this! If you are interested in your own custom wedding website, contact me and I’d love to create one for you too.

I adored the mix of our crisp ivory wedding invitation and the dark floral and gold of the additional cards. I’m a fan of florals, but sometimes they can be too girly. The black toughened it up a little and gave a very glamorous feel. While the soft pink shades of the floral was very wedding appropriate. I didn’t want any part of my wedding to be a token, typical wedding style. I wanted it to of course reflect a wedding, but be more what you would expect for a fabulous event.

We complete our wedding invitation set with a kraft card envelope, it was the perfect juxtaposition of high end glam and something a little more rustic. I tied them with Rose Gold Bakers Twine that I found on Amazon and each invitation was finished with a pretty bow at the front. I once read an interview from a celebrity event planner and they said creating an amazing experience and styling vibe for an event is all about mixing unexpected elements. I’ve always believed this even with fashion and outfit ideas, for example mixing sequins and denim. The best looks combine different vibes!

Below are the beautiful wedding invitations we chose (these are the design proofs so you can see all the details). I’d love to hear what you think…

I adore our wedding invites and was so thrilled with them in real life. The quality of design, card stock and printing was impeccable! When our wedding invitation delivery arrived, I couldn’t have been more excited or happy. With anything you put your name to in life, you want to feel proud and both Chris and myself, along with our parents, were genuinely excited to send these to the most special people in our lives.

What do you think of our wedding invitation set? I’d love to hear from YOU, my friend! What invitation vibe and colors did you (or would you) choose for your wedding? Leave a comment below and let’s chat.

Friday Faves: Scary Truth About Counterfeit Cosmetics – What You Need To Know

I was watching Life of Kylie this week and found the exposé on counterfeit cosmetics, in particular black market Kylie Cosmetics, immensely interesting – and disturbing. I then came across a short documentary from Refinery29 where they went to Santee Alley in Downtown Los Angeles’ notorious shopping district. They discovered street markets filled with popular cosmetic products including Kylie Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills and M.A.C at deeply discounted prices. But remember as the old saying goes, if it seems too good to be true, it usually is…

The video below shares insight into how undercover counterfeit cosmetics busts are carried out and the length companies like Estée Lauder go to in protecting their brand and importantly, us as consumers. Thank goodness they do! Hearing the ingredients used in fake cosmetic products is scary and the dirty, unregulated conditions they’re made in leaves you shuddering at the thought of putting them on your face.

The Scary Truth About Counterfeit Cosmetics blog post how to spot a fake beauty product

Through seeing this, you realize how careful you need to be about where you buy cosmetics. I’ve never bought beauty or makeup products from a street vendor, but over the years I have got a few things from eBay thinking they were the real deal. After watching this, I would never do it again… you just don’t know where they’re from! Fake beauty products can look almost identical to the real thing, however as the video below shows, the ingredients are very different and potentially dangerous.

Learning about black market beauty products made me more aware of this issue and I had to share it with you too. Counterfeit cosmetics are something we all need to know about. If you’re going to shop outside retail or department stores, it’s important to learn how to tell whether a beauty product is fake.

Have you ever seen counterfeit cosmetics in real life? Did they look authentic? I’d love to hear your thoughts, leave a comment below and I’ll email you back – let’s chat!

Counterfeit Cosmetics From Kylie Cosmetics, M.A.C and more…

I hope this information helps to keep you safe from buying counterfeit cosmetics. Please leave a comment and share your thoughts, I’m interested to chat about this more.

Friday Faves – How To Style Your Bedside Table

I love home decor ideas and wanted to share some tips on how to style your bedside table beautifully. As the first thing you see when you wake up and the last sight at night before you go to sleep every day, it’s definitely worth spending some time to create a stunning little space that reflects your style and includes a few things you love!

This is my bedside table below. I like to keep it clean and organized, with a sprinkling of a few of my favorite things. Of course, fresh flowers always add a gorgeous touch and I have fun choosing a pretty bunch each week. It is so simple to add a little luxury to your life and your home – and your bedside table is the perfect place to start!

How to style your bedside table home decor tips what would beyonce do quote woodwick candle maison margiela replica beach walk perfume le labo santal 33

Shop My Decor – Style Your Bedside:  Lamp    |    Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp    |    WoodWick ‘At The Beach’ Candle    |    Le Labo ‘Santal 33’ Eau de Parfum    |    Maison Margiela Replica ‘ Beach Walk’ Perfume    |    Le Labo ‘Rose 31’ Eau de Parfum    |    Beyonce Quote Art    |    Jewelry Dish    |    Michael Kors ‘Lexington’ Watch    |    Daniel Wellington Watch

 

How To Style Your Bedside Table

 

1. SIMPLICITY IS THE ULTIMATE FORM OF SOPHISTICATION.

As they say, less is more and this is key to remember when styling your bedside table. Choose a few pieces you love and feel inspired by, the rest should be stored in drawers below to keep your surface clean, clear and uncluttered. When buying a bedside table, opt for one with great storage space (big drawers). This means you’ll have everything at your fingertips, but it will be neatly packed away.

We have the from Malm 3 Drawer Chest from Ikea in the black / brown wood color and I added the Malm White Glass Top – they look fabulous together! Our bed is a king with a high headboard frame, so I feel a larger bedside table fits well and also accommodates our gorgeous oversized lamps. It’s very chic and has just the right amount of drama to create a luxe feel.

 

2. ADD DIMENSION AND DRAMA WITH HEIGHT.

Styling with objects of varying heights creates interest and drama, this is key to styling a bedside table. A lamp is perfect as the tallest item, then graduate down from there by adding a photo frame, flowers or a candle. Then for the lowest item, a jewelry tray is brilliant.

 

3. BRING IN NATURE.

Your bedroom should be a relaxing space and to encourage restful sleep, including elements from nature can help promote this. In addition to fresh flowers, I personally love having a Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp beside our bed, these have become mega popular and are great to have in key rooms around your home. They can help cleanse and purify air, as well as give many other benefits by absorbing the positive ions in the air, which sap our bodies of energy. Himalayan Pink Salt Lamps generate negative ions naturally, when heated, the salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air. I got my Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp on Amazon.

 

4. USE COMPLEMENTARY COLORS.

As you’re adding pieces, think about what genuinely works well together. For a beautifully styled look, keep almost everything within a neutral color palette, then add a little pop of color with one statement piece. I love doing this with flowers! It’s fun to change them up each week and bring a new vibe to the space. Another great option includes a pretty bright jewelry box – these are practical and pretty!

 

5. HAVE FUN WITH ART AND INSPIRATION.

Whether it’s a photograph of loved ones or fun quote art, be sure to bring your personality into this space. It’s a really fun opportunity to make an area in your home 100% completely YOU!

 

Remember, you don’t have to spend a fortune to have gorgeous interior style and decorate your bedside table. I like to check out Target and Ikea for great basics, then dress them up with more personalized and creative items from Etsy. Or look for when big departments stores like Nordstrom or outlets like Century 21 (my favorite!).

I hope this helps provide inspiration on how to style your bedside table, I’d love to hear your thoughts and what pieces you like to wake up and dream next to?
