I have a new favorite waste of time. The Kardashians have sucked me in once again with the Kim Kardashian Hollywood game. I tried it because it was free and had absolutely no expectations and now I’m completely addicted! It is actually exquisitely designed and easy to navigate. The avatars are quite exceptional as well. When I started the game, I was a lowly sales girl at a boutique and in walked Kim Kardashian! I successfully styled her for an event after which she quickly befriended me and hooked me up with contacts that eventually led to gigs. These gigs include modeling for various brands, appearances, and really just being me for which I get paid handsomely (sound familiar). You require energy to complete your tasks. You can get energy by using your stars (which you have to earn or purchase), but I have found that I can just wait for my energy to replenish. It takes a little longer but no money is spent. The instant gratification of money and new clothes is really addicting which is why I climbed from an E-list celebrity to an A-list celebrity in just one week. I have reached level 12 of 19, have 37.2 million fans, a condo in L.A., a house in Miami (next to Kim’s), and I haven’t spent any of my actual money to do it. If only real fame and fortune was this easy to obtain. Well, I guess it is for some….lol! All in all, it’s a great way to pass the time next time you’re stuck in a long line or just want some mindless fun to relax.
It’s a bittersweet feeling when I come across yet another luxury designer to covet. I’m always excited to discover something new and beautiful but the price tag is usually a downer. Case in point, the gorgeous handbags by M2Malletier. This Barcelona-based brand is known for its minimalistic designs and infamous needle-like handle. The architectural designs paired with a superb quality of leather creates a winning combo of alluring handbags.
I love the subtle mint color of this bag. Absolutely perfect for spring!
This has a roomier square shape and the creamy tan color makes this a timeless classic you can carry for years.
Get a little feisty with this funkadelic hologram look. I also love the octagonal shape of this purse for an even edgier look.
I love this juicy purple color and the elongated shape is a sleek choice for an evening event.
If your feeling caliente, this coral is a great option for a fun vacay!

Last weekend was a busy, fun-filled weekend. Along with having house guests and going to a wedding, I had the great pleasure of hosting a Chloe + Isabel jewelry trunk show for two good friends. The party was held at my favorite shoe shop, Happy Feet Boutique. We had discounted pedicures and shoes as well as snacks and boozy lemonade!
I will admit that I was not aware of Chloe + Isabel until my dear friends introduced me to it and ….I love it! What I feel that makes this jewelry line stand out from its competitors are the attention to detail, like their logo on the earring backings. It also features a wide variety styles that can appeal to any taste.
Here’s a little sneak peek at some of the gorgeous items.

I love the vintage feel of this necklace. They also have an entire art deco line with some really beautifully unique pieces.
This necklace is on my personal must-have list.

If you have been following my blog, you know I’m a fitness fanatic and a tennis nerd. There’s nothing better than when two things you love come together to create something wonderful. You can imagine my excitement when I learned one of my favorite luxury athletic clothing lines has debuted a collection for tennis! Introducing the Splits 59 tennis clothing line, Court Couture! So far, there is only one tennis skirt but it’s super cute with a high thigh split. I love the color scheme of buttercup yellow, turquoise, and white which is a fun and unexpected look for tennis. All of the materials are moisture wicking so you can stay cool and calm on the court. They have featured some sexy crop leggings with flattering side panels and a sleek performance jacket that would look good on and off the court. This line is just going to add to my current obsession of cute tennis clothes. Just in time for the summer season

This is my second time featuring this brand on the blog because I am obsessed!!! The London-based brand, aqua by aqua has a new AQ/AQ SS ’14 collection that is to die for! These designers create clothing for the woman every women wants to be. Hot, edgy, flirty, and a little bad ass. I have featured some of my favorite looks. I’m especially enamored with the black jumpsuit, cape dress, and jogger pants. Heck! I want it all!
It seems Carrie Bradshaw’s love for shoes has manifested into an actual shoe line via the very real Sarah Jessica Parker. Inspired by her character on the beloved Sex in the City, the actress turned designer has created the SJP line sold at Nordstrom! Like most fashion fanatics, I was a devoted fan to Sex in the City, and a pair of shoes from the SJP line is about as close as I will get to be a young and fabulous single lady stomping the streets of NYC. The SJP line includes gorgeous shoes, handbags, and even trench coats. This collection is perfect for spring with pretty pastels and classic black patent staples. I’m totally obsessed with the ultra feminine mint sandals. Here is a sneak peek from the line:
Go ahead and shop this collection and live your inner Carrie Bradshaw
Beyond Yoga is hands down my new favorite luxury activewear brand. I’m so thankful for my local Bar Method in Atlanta for carrying such great brands and introducing me to this one. I have pretty much abandoned my old faithful, Lululemon, and haven’t looked back. There are seven fashion forward ladies behind this U.S.A.-based label that boosts quality athletic clothing for all sizes and silhouettes. Besides the fact that their clothes have extraordinary style, the fabrics are sooooo amazing! I have one pullover that is absolutely so soft I wear it weekly. I have several pairs of their leggings that have such a flattering fit and are comfortable and stylish enough to wear from day to night. I have to admit I have gone out to dinner many times after my Bar workout (I promise I don’t smell). I picked out a few of my faves from their website. I love my silver open back sweater you see pictured below but I have my eye on that cobalt blue open back top
You can find Beyond Yoga at specialty retailers or go to the website. Hint: they also appear often on Gilt.com with super flash sales!
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet a talented designer at her trunk show held at House of Couture Boutique in Buckhead. Ashley R. Ryles is the beauty and brains behind her label AR’RYLES which features meticulously crafted designer pencil skirts. Ashley is a graduate of the Miami International University of Arts & Design and has interned with the esteemed label, Badgley Mischka. She is now based in New York but has roots in Atlanta. She has lived in Miami and Europe as well which has helped broaden her keen fashion sense which is evident in her designs.
April McRae, the owner of House Couture was a gracious host for this fabulous event. Her shop is located on Bennett Street in the heart of Buckhead. She carries chic, edgy, one-of-a-kind clothes that will catch the eye of any fashionista. Next time you’re in the area stop by and tell her I sent you
Ashley really kept the curves of a woman’s body in mind when designing her skirts. They are fitted in the waist and curve naturally with the hips before tapering at the bottom just below the knee. If you look closely, you can see the seam she has created carving out the hip area. It’s a look that is flattering on a full-figured woman or it can accentuate the curves on a smaller frame. My favorite is the gold leather over lay skirt pictured above but they are all super sexy!
In the picture below, I’m here with the ladies in our AR’RYLES skirts. It’s so funny to me how I look like I’m standing in a hole between these two glamazons, London, Ashley’s sister and Ashleyon the right.
For more information about AR’RYLES or to purchase a skirt check out her website here. House Couture of Boutique is located at 25 Bennett St., Suite C, Atlanta, GA.
I was thumbing through a gossip magazine (yes…I admit it) a few weeks ago and spotted these gorgeous shoes on Rashida Jones. I scoured the web trying to find out who the designer was and discovered the beautiful world of Bionda Castana. The brains behind these stunning shoes are two British designers, Jennifer Portman and Natalia Barbieri. The designers utilize inspiration from their Italian heritage to create impeccably handcrafted shoes with luxurious silks, lace, velvet, and leather. The British label gained it’s notoriety by many celebs, including Keira Knightley, wearing them on the red carpet. Now for a small fortune you can adorn these shoe to your next holiday soiree
This classic silk leopard print will never go out of style.
I love this soft grey suede accented with gold studs to give it a little more edge.
A tall, velvet, black boot….why not?
These pretty babies are so dandy!
This pointed-toe pump with the fan details and rich lace has such a regal feel to it. Fit for a queen.
It will be a while before any of these shoes make it into my wardrobe, but until then….a girl can dream!
