Lucky Elephant: Alex and Ani

How much I love Alex and Ani bracelets may start becoming a problem for my wallet but sometimes I just can't resist. Walking in there is like walking into a candy store. There is so much to choose from and like Veruca Salt, "I want it now". There was one charm I was patiently waiting for so when I heard it was here, of course, I had to run down to Newbury and scoop it up. 
It is the Elephant charm by Charity by Design. I adore elephants and how they can bring you luck. "Extraordinarily protective, elephants are known to stand up for others encouraging the values of camaraderie, perseverance, and unity. With a trunk up for luck, wear The Elephant Charm to inspire others to pursue their passions and embrace the power of teamwork." How adorable?
Not to mention that 20% will go to  Friends of Jaclyn, an organization in which athletic programs adopt children with pediatric brain tumors to provide them with love, support and lasting friendships.

This is what I want next:

The Perfect Skinny Jean

Now that the warm weather is here, it's time to break out those stiletto's and wedges and pair them with your favorite skinny jeans. I have found the perfect pair. Rich and Skinny Legacy Jeans have the built in pockets I love without all the bulk and come in a wearable, treated color. The inseam of the ankle is the kind of skinny a girl wants in this style and I hate excess fabric when I'm trying to tuck into a boot. Get yours now!

Urban Outfitters: Out of Time

I am so bummed because I ordered this awesome headdress from Urban Outfitters to wear to my Neiman Marcus event only to find out, it arrives Monday. I have looked around for similar but could not find any and that could make it in time. I guess I'll have to come up with someplace else fabulous to wear it to!

Alex & Isabelle Pony Ties

I believe in little coincidences even in the fashion world. My friend Emily started wearing the cutest bracelets or so I thought. Turns out, they are hair ties; a huge trend in Malibu. She told me how a small company out there started them and she would bring me back some on her trip this week.
As I said earlier, I went to the Blog Better Boston conference Saturday and in the gift bag was a similar version from Alex & Isabelle. They are two friends who a few years ago, started dabbling in creating the perfect hair tie as a project with their two young daughters, Alex and Isabelle (also best pals).
I, like Emily, enjoy wearing them as bracelets! A set is $10.

The Power Shopping Event @ Neiman Marcus

After the awful power outages Boston suffered last week, my fabulous event with Neiman Marcus is back on! Please be my guest and enjoy Spring trends, music, drinks, styling by Avanti Salon and more this Saturday, March 31st! I would love to meet all my readers and talk some fashion! I am very excited and will see you there.

My New Companion: Rebecca Minkoff

As you know, I got a sneak peak of the Gilt Warehouse Sale on Friday night! I was extremely excited to see what I would find. Of course, I arrived second even though I am always late for everything else. Amongst my finds, a Badgley Mischka bag and Winter Kate top, was this adorable Rebecca Minkoff Stud Companion Bracelet.
How cute is this little pouch? Perfect for my trips to the South End Buttery and walking the dogs, I also love the fire engine red color. The best part is I purchased it at the cool price of $19 down from $119. Thank you at Gilt City!

Who's That Girl: Gilda Miranda

Yesterday was the Blog Better Boston Conference at the Google Center where over a hundred bloggers gathered to meet and learn some tricks about blogging. I had the pleasure of hanging out with the lovely Gilda Miranda of the amazing Take It From Me blog. I must say she was the best dressed.  
She really nailed the Spring trends right down to her vintage green handbag. 
Gilda mixes high and low with her style. Her silver, sparkly covered fur jacket was a find on sale at Club Monaco while her chic capri, pastel yellow pants are from Saks. Her accessories really make the outfit pop.
The insane shoes she worked all day were all due to STA Consignment for a grand total of $20. The creative thing about Gilda is she added the ankle strap.
Overall, it was a great day! I learned a lot, made new friends and contacts and even got some swag. Do you like Gilda's outfit?

Michelle Chang Jewelry

Michelle Chang Jewelry is very unique. When I saw it, I knew I must own a piece. So simple and delicate, it catches the eye with its own charming way. You are bound to notice. Started four years ago by Michelle, everything is made to order.

This skull grabbed my attention most. I loved the delicacy of it yet the toughness it represents. At $64, you can have one too. Look at all her jewels here in her Etsy shop.

I love layering her piece too! It creates a fun look.

Beaucage Salon and Spa

When I was invited to visit the beautiful Beaucage Salon and Spa, I was more than thrilled. On the gorgeous Newbury St, this was a trip I was willing to take. I have always wanted to try the spa and was in desperate need of a facial.

Walking in is so comforting. The salon itself is gorgeous and inviting. It is luxury and what a salon should look like. I was greeted by the lovely owner and master stylist, Dean Boudreau, who was more than happy to share some seasonal hair trends and what make Beaucage so successful. After all, it has been around for twenty-three years!

"In the fall you see deep, rich reds. Of course, when the warm weather comes, you see more blondes. Everyone wants to get lighter. It all changes that way. It's about the warm weather. Techniques: a lot of people want something very natural. Then, you have those you want it not so perfect, a little broken up. Who we take care of, are woman who wants to be in-style."
Next, I headed upstairs for my facial. The spa is so cozy and relaxing. I was greeted by Monica who was wearing a fabulous red lip and off we went into the facial room. I had the Environ Anti-aging Hydrating Facial with a lactic peel infused with Vitamin A, C and antioxidants ending with a brow wax to open up the eyes. One of Monica's pro-tips is using a dab of tea tree oil to cure a blemish. It works! I have been trying it.
After the facial, I was treated to a blow-dry that was amazing. With my fresh face and gorgeous do, off I went feeling like a million bucks! Thanks Beaucage for my wonderful day of beauty!

One week later: My skin looks better than ever. Whatever Monica did, it worked!
