JAK & JIL - featuring Melanie Huynh

I know this is old news to everyone else, but recently I found out about the website Jak & Jil and I absolutely love it!!! They have this great section on killer heels. It's amazing how by just looking at one's shoes, you want to know so much more about them! They basically take pictures of IT people in the fashion industry, the behind the scenes people and models as well.

Loving these gladiators although it is way too cold to wear these now. This shoe can spice up any outfit. Melanie Huynh, Assistant Stylist for Paris Vogue are sporting these. After seeing her great shoe selection, I googled her (yes I have way too much time on my hands..) I absolutely adore her style.. super chic yet not overdone. But then again, I would only expect someone who is the Junior editor for Vogue Paris to be super stylish. I just love how easy she makes the clothes look.

With Carine Roitfield I also love Carine Roitfield's style..but thats for another entry!
Great combination of prepster cool but slightly edgy
The gladiators are the perfect pairing!

Don't you just want to find out more about who wears these heels!?
Shoes are a great way of expression!

Ebates & Rebates online

I was reading my usual fashion blogs and I came across to The Look 4 Less
which featured on their website. Its a site that pays you for shopping! All you have to do is go to their website and from there, you search for the website you want to make a purchase from like if you want to buy something from like Target and they give you a percentage back for what you spend, it ranges from 1-6% but every little bit counts right? I'm always buying random stuff online, so its nice getting a little bit of "tax" money back on your purchases even if its not that much, its better than nothing!

They are having a special promotion right now where they are giving a $10 giftcard if you sign up for stores such as everyone's fave, SEPHORA! so I would definitely recommend at least trying it out. You aren't losing anything by using this website and theres no type of obligations or anything. My email address for referral is if you would be so kind! But no pressure or anything, I just figured I would share this website I recently found out about.

Use this Ebates link for $10 gift card

Use this Ebates link for $5 to get you started in your account

Also for you ebay-ers ... try using this site SavingsWatch because they give back 1.5% for ebay, which does not feature. If you sign up, they give you $5.00 in your account as well. Both the sites are similar, some giving more % than others. You have to reach a certain amount of money before they send you back a check so I would suggest thinking to one site or another if they offer both stores at each site. Its $10 in your account for SavingsWatch and $5 for Ebates before a check is sent to you. Here is a sample of what stores they offer

These sites also offer coupons so its a good way to check out the good deals out there.

Happy shopping! I'm already buying a whole bunch of stuff from Target right now!

Celebrity Halloween

This halloween, one of my friends is hosting a dress up like a celebrity or character party... which should be a lot of fun except not exactly sure what I'm dressing up as yet.

So ideas were thrown out and even InStyle had similar ideas!

The first idea was to be Jonas brothers! HAHA.. that would be funny, but I'm thinking on passing on that idea. We would really just need the hair if we could find a wig and wear a skinny tie with graphic tees and some slim jeans.

Next idea is to be GOSSIP GIRLS. I'm a huge fan of Blair and Serena so that would be a possibility, but only thing is the guys have NO idea who or what is Gossip Girl... but what matters is the girls know, right?? Its pretty much the whole school girl idea with an added headband with a bow.. so it seems pretty simple so I'm wondering if I should think of something more clever. But I do absolutely love the bow headbands and colored tights..

Third idea would be to do Sex in the City - typical Carrie outrageous outfits would be fun!
I actually really like Carrie's flower dress idea. She was totally known to start the flower trend and this one is totally over the top.. so this is a good possibility if I can just find a super huge flower (I'm thinking of hitting up Michaels) !!

I'll let you know what I end up deciding!

Project Runway Season 5 Finale

Tonite is the Project Runway Season Finale! I'm so excited to find out who wins. I absolutely love watching Project Runway, I always watch the marathon re-run of all the current episodes on Bravo. I haven't been able to see the new recent episodes since I don't have cable here, but I'm going home this weekend so that means some good quality t.v. time.. & family time of course! haha. I'm really hoping that Leanne is going to win. Kenley started out as my favorite since I loved her girly sweeet style, but Leanne won my heart with her designs. They all had such beautifully designed pieces in their collections and yay for all girls being in the final 3.... so I can't be mad at whoever wins. Here are my favorites from their NY Fashion Week showing:

Leanne Marshall
The detailing is impeccable in her designs

Kenley Collins
She has a very signature style,
I love how she incorporates feathers and head/hair pieces.

Korto Momolu
I love colors and the safari theme of her outfits

So who do you want to win?

Well I have to get back to studying now, shouldn't even be blogging since I have a massive amount of things to read for my test tomorrow!
Wish me luck!

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Mask

Ever since I came back from Haiti, my hair has felt so unhealthy and dry. The hot Haitian weather really took its toll. My favorite hair mask to use is Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery mask. After I use it, my hair feels so soft and looks a bit shinier too! It just feels so much more healthier.

A hair mask is great because it has higher concentration of ingredients than your everyday conditioner, which means extra moisture for your hair. The natural ingredients of Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Mask penetrates and moisturizes each layer of your hair strand:
  • Olive penetrates to the center
  • Meadowfoam Seed helps moisturize the middle
  • Sweet Almond wraps the surface
It coats the hair shaft, smoothing the cuticles that reduce damage. For those of you who use the blow dryer or curling/straightening irons a lot, this product will help your strands to becoming more healthy and shiny. This intensive moisture conditioner helps dehydrated hair, extra dry or over-processed hair.

A tip from my friend Alex is after putting on the hair mask, wrap your hair in saran wrap and then a towel around to keep in the moisture. Rinse out after 10 minutes or however long you want to keep the hair mask on, more time doesn't hurt!

I would definitely recommend using a hair mask once a week to keep your hair soft and silky.

Paris Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week has displayed an array of fabulous designers. Recently what caught my eye were the looks of Miu Miu, Lanvin and Ellie Saab. Although I could go on about every piece of I loved from the many different designers at Fashion Week.

I absolutely loved the prints of Miu Miu!! Loved pretty much everything.

Lanvin showed off some signature pieces but incorporated
some prints as well, which I of course liked!

I had an amazing time in Haiti, but now I'm back in the exam time crunch. Boo for that! Not too much time to post these days :( I never had a chance to post about fashion week, which kicked off in NYC. I would love to one day attend a fashion show. How divine would that be! So many amazing clothes with such talented designers. I love Giambiattista Valli's tulle/puff dress, for lack of a better description, its so fairytale... but we'll probably only see it in editorials. I couldn't imagine anyone wearing it on the red carpet. But there has been many red carpet worthy dresses like the purple Badgley Mischka gown. AH so in love. Check out the current shows for Fashion Week in Paris on for those of who you aren't lucky enough to see them in person :)
