Rope Jewelry

Lately I have been noticing all sorts of cool jewelry made out of rope. While rope on it's own would make a somewhat unexceptional piece, pair it with gold or silver, and interesting stones and viola some amazingly unique pieces.

Product Review: Havaianas

I first fell in love with Havaianas a few years ago when I was traveling in Brazil. I don't think I took them off for the entire trip. Havaianas Brazilian flip flops were originally made in 1962 (who knew they were so old!) and originally came in 8 colors. Nowdays there are upwards of 20 different styles and a ton of different colors. Some of my favorites shown here are the Havaianas Slim, Fun, Surf Girl, Fit, and Top Mix. I recently had the opportunity to try the Fit, which has an extra wrap around ankle strap and looks even more like a sandal. The matte gold is perfect for beach to dinner occasions like the Hamptons, where I will be wearing them this weekend. And you never have to worry about getting any blisters with Havaianas. I can literally walk in them for hours with no discomfort. Havaianas also has some of the most creative ad campaigns around. For more styles of Havaianas womens sandals visit their website.

Snoozer Looser Fall Preview

I just received the look book for the Snoozer Looser Fall / Winter line and had to share it with you guys. I have posted about New York designer Snoozer Looser in the past and I am really excited about her new collection. I love the mixing and matching of these funky prints and the styling is so great. The knee socks and brightly colored tights are perfect accents.

Product Review: Aveeno Positively Nourishing

I have recently had the opportunity to try the Positively Nourishing Hydrating body wash and Whipped Souffle by Aveeno. The products are infused with shea butter so that they are ultra nourishing and leave your skin soft and refreshed. I barely needed to use lotion after using the shower gel, unlike harsh soaps which can strip my skin of moisture. And after spending all week on my beach vacation to Cape Cod last week, these products were the perfect trick for restoring my skin.

Dominic Jones Jewelry

I recently came across this bold line of animalistic jewelry by designer Dominic Jones. I love the predatory aspect to these pieces and yet the gold makes them look chic and glamorous. They would be so fun to wear!
