Paul Andrew won the CFDA Fashion Fund 2014 Competition.
Paul Andrew uses the finest resources in Italy for crafting his shoes.
His shoes aren’t just beautiful. The judges pressed him to answer the question, “What makes your pump different from the others we’ve seen?” He explained that he not only uses the finest materials and craftsman, he has researched what makes a pump comfortable and incorporated this data into the making of his shoes.
I think we have all had that one pair of pumps that we could wear anywhere and when they finally bite the dust, it’s so painful to toss them. I can’t wait to get Paul Andrew’s little lovelies on my feet. Finally, a designer who cares whether my feet survive a night out!
I’m very excited to see what is yet to come from this emerging designer!
Majority of the island remains inaccessible by land. If I remember correctly, 90% of the island is inaccessible. To much of the rain forest and central parts of the island, there is little or no road access. Another reason for the inaccessibility is that a lot of the island remains privately owned and is therefore closed to the public. We did a helicopter tour to capture these spectacular and breathtaking views.
It was actually to our benefit that the island underwent tropical storms in the early days of our trip. If you look carefully at most of the pictures, you can see multiple waterfalls that were remnants of the recent rains.
It’s Make-Up Monday today on the blog and we’re tackling BROWS!!
Let’s face it… it’s hard to get perfect brows. Follow along for some basics to help you go from basic to chic.
I mentioned the difference between brow powder and brow pomade. The Dipbrow Pomade $18 does not need to be set with any sort of gel to hold it in place. Brow Powder $23 will require it to be set with Brow Gel $22. You’re in luck though because I found out that clear mascara $5 will do the trick. Most drugstore brands are around $5.
I also mentioned the Brow Enhancing Serum $38. From what I have been told, it works well with regular use. People who tried it, saw drastic results after using it daily for 6 months. I used it for a few months, but I found that when I stopped over tweezing my brows, they grew in nicely, so I can’t say that I used it for the full 6 months, but based on reviews and research, I would recommend this product.
If you are interested in purchasing the kit items separately, you can do that as well, however, I think the starter kit was a nice introduction to the product line. I also needed the step-by-step instructions. The kits come in a variety of colors, so if you’re purchasing online, make sure you get the one that best matches your hair color. I loved the line for blondes when I was blonde and I have matched both light red and dark red, so I’m confident you can match your color as well!
I am so happy to have found the Anastasia Beverly Hills products. They have given me much needed direction in the brow department. I have enjoyed practicing with the stencils and perfecting my make-up techniques. I also love the videos and pictures they put on Instagram @anastasiabeverlyhills.
I have followed Eva Fehren on Instagram since I saw her compete for the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund.
Her pieces are unlike any I’ve ever seen.
Not only is her jewelry innovative and iconic, but her inspiration shines in her pieces. Her jewelry is inspired by her native town, NYC. On her instagram account, she shares the visions that are brought to life in her pieces.

I’m looking forward to bumping this beach to the second most breathtaking beach I’ve visited, this weekend…

Larger prints make the surface areal look larger.
Flatter yourself with prints no larger than the size of the palm of your hand.
Make yourself look taller by wearing a tall heel under palazzo pants.
Wei Ting Liang created “The Inner Self Collection” for her 3rd year final project. The project embodies death and the beauty of returning to one’s true self. White represents the return of the body to nothingness or “zero.” Her designs reveal the shedding of the outer shell to reveal the soft structure within. View her fashion fim below to see her creations take life. (http://trendland.com/weiting-liang-collection/)
Hi, I'm Kate. I'm a nurse by trade. Yes, that's right, I'm a hold your hand, clean your wound, do CPR, lift patients, hard working, selfless kind of nurse. I've gained a lot of life experiences doing nursing in some pretty rough areas of town. I love taking care of people and I actually enjoyed chemistry class. I also, however, enjoy making my own clothes and have been doing so for 10+ years. Read More
