Jordan Louis Fall/Winter 2015 Presentation

Jordan Louis showed their collection at IPO Wines in a studio in Manhattan, at a intimate setting, where they had wine tasting, a live band, a beauty booth where guests were welcomed to get manicures by Cuccio. Some of the collections were on mannequins and then live models were displayed on top of wine crates, showcasing more of the clothing designed by Kimberly Bowser-Sherer. The designer herself was also walking around and talking with everyone. I even got to chat with her about some of her pieces and the inspiration behind the collection.

The Jordan Louis collection was inspired from the song, Genrique by Miles Davis. Her collection were sultry, smooth and relaxing mix of pieces. I really felt that vibe with the setting, and looking at the clothes. The pieces that really explained her inspiration of "sultry, smooth and relaxing," was an all black look, called the Daisy lounge top, and the Quinn lounge pant, the material used was smooth ribbed and viscose. Then the top had a separate piece overlay, called the Tiffany blouse which was a dainty scallop lace material. That outfit looked really comfortable, I liked the lace part too, so it was a nice touch to a more relaxed look to spruce it up for a sultry look as well.

The Designer: Kimberly Bowser-Sherer, she is also wearing her own design The Moxie Dress.

My favorite's out of the Jordan Louis collection was the colorful sherbet floral prints and especially the boucle jacket. I need that in my closet! The details were impeccable on each piece, I admire that in clothes since they make the clothing more unique and fun to wear. The choices of fabrics too all make the collection cohesive and I seriously want to wear every piece.

Alberto VO5 Introduces Innovative Beauty Oil for Hair and Body

We were going to save this product for a spring skin renewal post but because this winter has been especially harsh on our skin, we needed to up the moisturizing ante. While we're huge fans of thick body cremes and body butters, we found that this devastating temperatures and frigid air still left our skin feeling and looking dry, flaky, and thirsty, so we decided to try the VO5® Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil a bit early.

The VO5® Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil is a light, natural oil blend for BOTH hair and body that quickly helps replenish dry hair and skin. This blend of five essential vitamins (E, H, C, B5, and B3), and oils (Argan, macadamia, sunflower, Shea, Grapeseed, and coconut natural oils) helps nourish, moisturize and hydrate your hair and skin without clogging your pores, or stripping your skin of its natural oils. We love this fast-absorbing, after-shower spray for so many reasons. Unlike the body butters, which were no match for this winter, we only had to use VO5 Shine, Glow & Go once, for all day soft, moisturized skin. It's light, sophisticated fragrance was instantly absorbed into our skin, without leaving any greasy residue. It was also the perfect, lightweight conditioner we needed to protect our hair from the cold (many people forget that like your skin, your hair needs protection from harsh elements as well). As you can see by the half filled bottle, we've been using it with lots of vigor.....we may be a bit addicted to it.

This amazing conditioning oil contains NO mineral oils, parabens or dyes, and is a steal at under $5.00 per bottle (thank goodness because we'll need a refill soon, especially if winter continues the way it has). We recommend stocking up on this innovative beauty oil at Walgreens, Kroger, Ralph’s, HEB, Publix, Winn Dixie, Bi-Lo, Hannaford, Giant Eagle and many more. Visit www.vo5haircare.com to learn more.

Jordan Tesfay & Compassion Brands's NYFW Reception

Jordan Tesfay, the first plus size Covergirl and Compassion Brands, collective of socially conscious executives in fashion design, retail, the arts and philanthropy that brings awareness and support to charitable causes, through positive messaging fashion and accessories, came together to host a fashion week opening reception to celebrate the many ways #CurvyGirlsRock.

Despite the frigid night, the crowd were kept warm inside casual, East Village neighborhood bar/restaurant, Bait & Hook, by the great music, delicious cocktails, and decadent cupcakes by Kay Martin and her glam Cupcake Kay's.

Although this fashion week event took place on the day before fashion week, it was not our only event and because of location, had to be our last. Sadly we missed a great performance by The Voice's Blessing Offor, and a great celeb turnout which included cast members from TV Shows Gotham, Law & Order: SVU, singers Jazmine Sullivan, and Ledisi, a few Bravolebrities, etc. The end ending with us walking away with some great gifted pieces from Compassion brands, which we've been proudly wearing.


Century21 Stores & Caravan Stylist Studios Pop-Up

Sometimes the best moments of attending Fashion week is when you get to escape from the never-ending shows to take a much needed break. The cycle of going to shows, taking photos and notes, sharing to social media, then leave to do it again at another show or location can get tiring. To break the monotony is a must for your state of mind which is why we were delighted to relax until our next show at the Century21 Stores and Caravan Stylist Studios Pop-Up.

The pop-up's attendees were treated to a space to relax, recharge their phones, enjoy some delicious snacks and treats from Luna Bar, Volvic Water, Belvoir Fruit Farms Lemonade, and InFusion Iced Herbal Tea.

We were also treated to some wonderful glam and pampering services,some guests opted for hair, makeup, or nails with great brands like Not Your Mother's Haircare, Lift Lab, Simple Skincare, FOREO, and Color Club Nail Polish.

We opted for a fab manicure with Color Club Nail Polish. while there were so many amazing and fun colors to choose from, we decided to go springy and bright with Jackie OH!, a HOT pink shade, which was edged up with a black stripe. After a few minutes for a brief session in the shoe department, we were off to our show.


Scared of Tap Water & the Effects of BPA? Refresh Naturally w/ Premium Icebox Water

In our attempt to drink more water (women should drink 9 cups a day, while men should average 13 cups a day), we've found ourselves wanting to know more about our water supply, and frankly some of what we've come across scares us a bit. Did you know that bottled water is often only filtered tap water? We didn't realize there was so much to fear from our tap water but we have learned there is. Because of this, we find we're more inclined to purchasing bottled water, but even that brings up a whole other set of researching on bottling methods, packaging, water sources, etc. The result of our research led us to Icebox Water, a clean, crisp, pure spring water from Canada that is packaged at its source, the True North Spring.

This naturally organic spring water is filtered in the glacier carved freshwater fjords ("a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, created by glacial erosion"*) of Newfoundland, far away from contaminants. This refreshing, environmentally-friendly, and safe for you, premium spring water has a pH of 7.4, 14.0 mg/L of Calcium, 2.0 mg/L of Magnesium, boasts safe and eco-friendly, BPA-free, pressed paper packaging that contains 76% less plastic than a PET bottle (regular water bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate), is compostable and 100% recyclable, and has a shape that fits just about anywhere. We didn't realize there was a difference in water until we tried Icebox and tasted how different it was from the filtered tap water and the bottled water we drank. The difference is beyond it being good for you, Icebox made us realize that we didn't drink more water because we just didn't like the taste. With Icebox, we easily met and surpassed the required amount of water we're supposed to drink in a day.

We think everyone should try Icebox Water, a case of 12 - 500ml Cartons is only $12.00, and compare it to their current drinking water, you won't go back.
