Michael Kors The Gold Fragrance Collection.

 

Michael Kors announces the next chapter of the Michael Kors Collection fragrances: The Gold Collection. Each of the three individual scents was designed to reflect the opulence and luxury of the highly prized metal- from white, to 24K, to rose gold.

Why gold? Because it embodies the luxe glamour of the Michael Kors woman and has become a hallmark of Michael’s world- from lustrous fabrics and sun-kissed skin to high-shine hardware and gilded jewelry.

“There is nothing sexier than a woman with a beautiful glow after an amazing vacation- and nothing complements that glow better than shimmering gold jewelry and a hint of fragrance that feels just as opulent and glamorous.” – Michael Kors

The three distinctive fragrances at the heart of this collection were each carefully chosen and constructed with the Michael Kors woman in mind, offering a scent for every occasion, mood and personal aesthetic.

  • WHITE LUMINOUS GOLD: Sparkling and sensuous, White Luminous Gold is an intoxicating burst of pear, jasmine and amber in a bright and exotic signature.
  • 24K BRILLIANT GOLD: Feminine and seductive, 24K Brilliant Gold shimmers with orange mandarin, voluptuous florals and a rousing spark of woodiness.
  • ROSE RADIANT GOLD: Tantalizing and hypnotic, Rose Radiant Gold entices with a spotlight on sparkling fruits, textured with a charming femininity of rich florals and soft musks.

Michael Kors The Gold Collection Fragrances

I am a big fan of Michael Kors in general, and I was very excited about the collaboration with such an amazing brand. Honestly, I never tried Michael Kors fragrance collections before. For the fall season, I chose for myself 24K Brilliant Gold and I was absolutely amazed. Citrus and wood scents make me fill so cozy, feminine and confident. Now I use it every day. It is suitable any season and occasion! If you are like me and never tried it before please give it a chance and  you will be satisfied. You can get it at any beauty store and www.MichaelKors.com

Celebrating with DITTO

Thank you to all my loyal followers for helping me reach 30K on Instagram!  This is all about you! Without you this journey would not be possible! Thank you for all your support and love! This is a perfect occasion to share with you my secret to wearing designer Sunglasses.  If you’re like me, you hate dropping $500 plus for designer sunglasses knowing you will be tired of the pair within a few months.  This is why when Ditto.com approached me I couldn’t resist.  You know by now that I don’t advertise products unless I truly believe in one and its mission.  Ditto.com allows me to rent designer luxury sunglasses for only $24.99 a month.  What a great idea!  This month my sunglass rental was a chic Prada pair that I was dreaming about forever.  I would have to pay nearly $625 to own this pair and knowing myself, I wouldn’t be wearing them this time next year.  A year of rentals at Ditto.com would only cost me $300 per year and I can try on as many pairs as my heart desires.  You can style your outfits with different shapes, styles, and colors and they come within a few days!  Of course you want to try it!  Use my code HEELOFFORTUNE when sign up and get your first month free and I promise you will fall in love as fast as I did.

Writer’s block

Hey everyone, I am back from my vacation or as most people would call it, writer’s block, but I didn’t have my creative juices at 100% so I needed to take some time off to recharge!  But here I am, back and better than ever.   I took the time off to reflect on my blog and the content that I was sharing with all of you.  I didn’t feel special about me, and looking at thousands of pictures of beautiful models in designer dresses which obviously someone who is a reguIar working girl can’t afford, caused me to begin to question my outer beauty.   Lots of women can not style themselves after the top models because it just is not affordable. We need to be creative in how  we use or budget to get the most out of it.  I can’t be alone in this constant struggle!   I want to keep sharing with you my tips about how to stretch a budget to keep your outward appearance flawless.   If your parents or husband isn’t a millionare, stay tuned for many great tips and advice on how to present yourself with all the class and beauty for a fraction of the cost!

A special thank to Shabbyappple for the collaboration and the beautiful skirt you shared with me which was my inspiration for the current shoot. You can use there skirts for everything from photo shoots to fancy events. Simply adding a beautiful top and a necklace and you are ready to go for any occasion.

Dear Mother.

mothers day, happy mothers day, mom, love, quote

With mother’s day coming up, you have to make sure you show your appreciation and love for the women that raised you to the person you are right now. I don’t want to give you any gift ideas, because I simply don’t know your mom as well as you know her. Today I just want to suggest you to bring her favorite flowers and tell her how much you love her and how much you care.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” -Washington Irving

This year i’m not that lucky to be able to see my mom, but I know she is my fan number one and that she will definitely read this post 🙂

Dear, Mother, I just want to let you know that I thank God for blessing me with a mother like you and if I had one wish I would wish that everyone else would at least have a mom half as wonderful as you are… You are not just my mom but my best friend and I love how you understand me and I can come to you for advise. Thank you for always being here for me, I appreciate all that you give me. I love you, Mom!

LOOKBOOK Hype Brunch

Recently, we hosted our second Lookbook Hype Event, the “Lookbook Hype Brunch” attended by 15 of Chicago’s hottest fashion bloggers at the world reknown Tavern on Rush!  We have been going to Tavern on Rush each monday for their “Girl’s Night” where you can win pair of Louboutines and thought what better place to host an event than at a restuarant that continues to support Chicago’s booming fashion industry.  Tavern on Rush was gracious enough to provide us with a private room with a balcony, and the weather could not be beaten! As bloggers, we took full advantage of the georgous balcony and city views to snap hundreds of great pics!

The table decor was designed and decorated by me and hope everyone enjoyed the detail and time it took to make each hand crafted piece that was on display.

Tavern on Rush was also generous enough to provide a full brunch and bar menu for our enjoyment.  The drink of the day was mimosas because nothing says brunch like a little OJ and champagne.  The tuna tartare was a big hit and a personal favorite.  All the dishes prepared were delightful.  The man dish that I choose was the crab cake benedict and the meal was simply delightful and the best brunch entree I’ve ever had.

I want to say thank you to repeat sponsor Magnolia Bakery for the fabolous Cupcake arraingment which was again a bit hit and tasted fresh and sweet.  Also a shout out to Glamour Girl Tan for sponsoring the event with gift cards.
