If you love fashion mixed with high stakes competition, then you have a new show to add to your line up! Style Wars is scheduled to premiere November 28th and will feature cutting edge fashion and the stylists who make it happen.
War does not determine who is right or who is wrong, but who is strong. Style is about so much more than what you wear – it’s who you want to be. Six stylists, three judges, twelve challenges and $15,000 is up for grabs for creating the strongest over-all vision. As the show’s slogan goes: “Fashions fade but only style remains – this is Style Wars.”
Each episode promises a creative thrill with twists and turns in between tasks resulting to a spicy battle of style, wits, creativity, and self-preservation.

After six weeks in Europe, JC and I are flying home today! I picked up this Glamour magazine in Poland after seeing Coco Rocha on the cover. I can’t read or speak Polish, but I figured that pictures are universal and I could try and learn some new Polish words.

I’m an adrenaline junkie who loves roller coasters and high action sports. I’ve been diving in the Great Barrier Reef with sharks, I’ve wrestled alligators, and I’ve jumped off a snow capped mountain in the Himalayas (with a parachute of course). All that being said, I could never, ever, ever imagine putting myself in the position that Kelly McGarry did as part of the Red Bull Rampage 2013!
In the video below, Kelly McGarry seems to defy gravity as he speeds down a narrow ledge and even does a back flip across a 72-foot-long gap!

This was my first time using a sand effect nail polish so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I saw this color at Rossman (Europe’s version of CVS) and I really loved the brown/purple color for Fall so I decided to give it a whirl. It was only about 3 or 4 bucks and I thought the texture might be neat.
It was easy to apply and went on in one coat, though I did two anyway. It dried much faster than I expected and although it was more matte than I anticipated, I actually really like it! I also really like the glitter mixed in with the sand texture – it’s like a few textures in one!
I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but at some point over the past year I’ve become completely obsessed with metallic shoes. I love how they instantly add a touch of glam to any outfit- even jeans and a tee shirt! Metallic shoes really do seem to go with anything from shorts to dresses and everything in between…so I started a quest to find the perfect pair to add to my personal shoe collection. Here’s what I found online:
The Christian Louboutins below are my favorite – though a little on the pricey side at $625. Plus, they are sold out.

Returning to New York for the third time showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Noon By Noor debuted their Spring 2014 collection on Friday, September 6th.
This season, designers Shaikha Noor and Shaikha Haya were inspired by The Tree of Life, a 400 year old natural wonder in their home country, Bahrain.
A mystery due to its survival in the barren desert with no known source of water, The Tree of Life inspired the designers to look at the natural beauty in the world, thus incorporating floral and leaf prints into this collection, translating into elegant, beautiful pieces enhanced with lace panels, floral appliques and ornate embellishments.
As Shaikha Noor describes, “Spring 2014 is a continuation on from Resort but this season the collection is more polished and sophisticated with hints of that playfulness from the previous season.” The designers envision the Spring 2014 woman as feminine, elegant and confident. She exudes sophistication and a natural confidence in her fashion choices and has a strong sense of self, yet she is also aware of her fun, youthful side which is evident in the way she mixes bold prints and experiments with color.
