Man Hair….Why is that some men get all the luck and get those luscious locks that we women oh so lust after? I mean, we are the woman after all and don’t you think ‘we’ should get all those beautiful locks of hair instead of the men? I for one think so. We spend so much money on getting our hair so perfectly soft, supple, thick and shiny when a man such as say… Jared Leto gets it naturally?

What about all the rockers from the early 80′s heavy metal bands? Their head banging locks just flowing every so lightly in the air just makes me lust after it even more. I can just kick myself for cutting my hair when I was younger. I had such long, pretty and a lot of hair… until I got a stick up my butt and decided to cut it off.

It’s been downhill ever since… All of the bleaching, coloring, heat and styling done to it has just really done a number on it, but I have hope that one day, yes, one day… I will get the hair of men such as Jared, Sebastian and Brad (pre Angelina)… There is hope to attain that beautiful man hair.

In a recent post, I wrote how Michael Kors seems to be duplicating the looks of many other designers such as the amazing Louis Vuitton with his new bag “Jet Set Logo Tote”. As a phenomenal designer, I just don’t get why you would want to try and duplicate another designers work. Yes, I can see how he is trying to capture the market of women who want that designer look without the designer price, but it’s getting to be a bit excessive now.

He has now come out with two more additional handbags that resemble the Stella McCartney Falabella Purse and Valentino’s Rock Star Tote and these are just a handful of others that he seems to continue to replicate. I also want to note that the “Falabella Purse” and “The Rock Stud” have been in stores since last year. Am I the only one that seems to notice this? Is it normal for established designers with his stature to create handbags with such similarities to other big designers such as these? Me, being someone who buys nothing but authentic designer handbags, not because they are name brand, but because of the beauty of the handbag and the originality of the handbag.

I personally do not want to carry a knock off version of the original design of the handbag that I paid a pretty price for. In my opinion, its the principal of the matter, and Michael Kors duplicating the looks of many well known designers handbags could very well fall into the category of the black market knock off handbags.

Martha Stewart is the queen DIY, cooking etc., and when it comes to any holiday festivity, her books are the first I go to for help, especially desserts. With that being said, she collaborated with Harpers Bazaar to create a self help video for “Lessons On Being Everything You’re Not”. She is after all, who else could give us such great lifestyle advice? You can watch the video below:
Seriously, summer is really the 2nd best time of the year next to Christmas. Well, correction, 3rd best after Easter! The open toed shoes and manicures galore, we have it all don’t we as women? But when it comes to choosing the best nail color it can be a difficult choice. I don’t know about you, but I am the most indecisive person, not just when it comes to nail colors, but anything in general. Enough about indecisions, lets get back to nails. When you think of summer what is the first thing that comes to mind? I don’t know about you, but the first thing I think about is the beach, deep blue sea water and sand. What goes with summer, sand and deep blue sea water? Magnificent manicured nails with the color of mediterranean waters. So, I shopped for us and found the perfect shades of blue for your next manicure or pedicure. Look below:

If you’re like me, taking selfies is just not my forté. Maybe thats because I don’t know how to do them correctly or maybe I just don’t feel comfortable doing them. Either way, I just don’t do them, but maybe with the help of this video courtesy of W Magazine, I just may change my whole way of thinking with selfies.

Oh, how I just love watching these runway shows, they just spew so many emotions in me. I often tell others and yes, this is true for me, that I don’t care about having the materialistic designer pieces. Although it would be nice to own at least one little piece of their Haute Couture collections, I just love watching what they have created. Pieces of fashions such as these are just pure creations of art. I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels this way, that it’s just pure excitement of just looking at them. Today’s Haute Couture video is Valentino. Valentino, along with a list of many of designers creates just pure beauty from Haute Couture to Ready To Wear. Enjoy his Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014/15 collection.
