Pantone's Marsala Favorites

January 22, 2015


Marsala Pantone Color of the year 2015,




 Hey everyone


Last month PANTONE announced the color Marsala as the color of the year for 2015!  A naturaly robust and earthy wine red. While PANTONE'S "Radiant Orchid", the captivating 2014 color of the year, encouraged creativity and innovation, Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

"Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors."

HOW TO - Pose For Street Style Photos Part 1

January 14, 2015

Hey everyone


I am so sorry for my lack of posts this past week, but I've been down with a nasty flu for over a week now, keeping me stuck in bed with a throbbing fever and even a worse mood.  Oh how I hate not being able to be productive, especially when it comes down to my blog and my sweetest readers LOL. As you can imagine I haven't been able to shoot any outfits so I thought it would be fun to share a few tips on how to pose for street style photos. In this three part series, I will tell you all about this subject over the next few weeks. So stay tuned on this subject!

As you may know, I had done quite a bit of modelling when I was younger, so I was armed with some experience when I started this blog almost three years ago. I do have to add that I never really liked modeling too much and have always been more interested in singing and dance which ultimately became my job when I moved to Los Angeles quite a few years ago.



When I started this blog I wanted it to look editorial, so I started playing with a lot of different poses and faces in front of the camera until I found my signature moves for my outfit photos.

I think posing in front of a camera has much to do with acting. You are mostly pretending to be in some kind of mood. For my photos on this blog that mood depends on an outfit, I am wearing that day. For example, when I wear a fierce looking outfit I try to put a lot of attitude in my face and poses. When an outfit is dainty and very feminine I put on a cute and smiley face and transfer that to the way I am posing as well.

Modelling for photos is a way of communicating with the lens without saying any words. Over the last three years, I have become better at this but don't get me wrong I am still learning every day and in some of my photos I think I look like a complete idiot. Of course these photos are never published and deleted quickly, but that aside. Posing is all about lots of confidence. Looking relaxed is key, even if you don't feel that way, or when you are grumpy or passers-by stare and whistle at you. Of course, I am getting to know what poses look best with a particular outfit and know what faces to pull to look my best. Meaning that it has become so much easier over time and being able to pose on auto pilot.  Hopefully some of my experience can be of some help to you when taking any type of photos. 

So let's start!

Happy New Year everyone


May all of your dreams come true in 2015!

It is my first post of the year! I am excited what the new year will bring as 2014 has been an excellent year for me and my blog. I am so grateful you guys keep coming back to read my posts. All I can do is thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking around and please know I appreciate all of you so much!

 About todays outfit,  when the weather gets gloomy, all I can do is add some color to my wardrobe. I haven't been wearing baby blue in ages but when I received this stunning bag from Italian brand Pomikaki my love for this color came back full force and I am pretty sure it's here to stay for a while.

Merry Christmas everyone!


I hope you will be able to spend these festive days with your family and loved ones and enjoy it all as much as you can! When it comes down to my Christmas party outfit, I am all about lace, sparkles and statement jewelry. In this outfit post, I wanted to make sure my party outfit was a modern look with an edgy twist. So I added a camouflage print skirt in a shiny material. I kept the rest of the outfit glamorous featuring a lace top, statement chandelier earrings and a beaded clutch. Perfect for any Christmas occasion right?  What do you think?
