Khloe Rocks Lingerie At Her Denim Launch

I haven't been into this lingerie as outerwear trend, however Khloe has changed my mind with this outfit. She walked the Grey Carpet at her "Good American" Denim Launch at Nordstrom in LA wearing obviously denim which she styled with a lace bodysuit, fur trimmed sandals, and layered chokers. However, the real stand outs of this look were her hair and makeup, I mean that hair is amazing. Wet-looking scrunched hair (directions from Justine Marjan's Instagram below), bronze smokey eye, and taupe overdrawn lips completed her H2T look.

Denim: Good American | Bodysuit: Gooseberry Intimates | Sandals: Olgana | 
Choker: Fallon Jewelry
Hair Stylist: Justine Marjan | Make-Up Artist: Joyce Bonelli

How to get Khloe's 'Wet-looking' Curls:
1. Prep damp hair with The Ouai Wave Spray then blowdry with Kardashian Beauty Blowdryer and your fingers for lots of texture.
2. Use a 1 inch GHD Flat Iron to create random twists on tiny sections of hair in different directions.
3. Run a ton of Marula Pure Beauty Oil Rare Oil Treatment through the hair then add Fatboy Water Wax for a wet shine.
4. Spray with lots of Bumble and Bumble Strong Hold Hairspray to finish.

Zuhair Murad - #PFW Spring 2017

"Zuhair Murad's designs glow extra bright within a narrow niche of the fashion biz, which might be why he never deviates too greatly from his unabashed glamour. Still, he insists that newness is imperative. "If I'm always repeating myself, there's no challenge," he said from his showroom in the Eighth Arrondissement. "It's motivating to do something out of the ordinary." For Spring, this meant doubling down on mirrored, monochromatic embroideries and tinkering with silhouettes from the couture canon." -

Valentino - #PFW Spring 2017

"Piccioli is an avid researcher, a fan of the Renaissance, an expert in all forms of couture techniques, and even more importantly, is curious and open to the world beyond the Valentino headquarters in Rome. [With that being said] they were wearing a collection he'd based on looking at a lot of medieval art, but particularly at Hieronymus Bosch's triptych, The Garden of Earthly Delights - not that the clothes read as historicist at all. "I like to now my history, and then forget it," Piccioli said at a preview. He'd also become fascinated by the work of Zandra Rhodes, the great British fashion designer of the '70s and '80s, known for her hand-drawn prints and floaty, haute hippy dresses, so he got on a plane to London to see her. In short, he aced it, not only meeting expectations but surpassing them too. If Piccioli can keep on developing that rich-looking but practical daywear, then Valentino will likely be adding a whole new constituency of customers to the ones who come to the house looking for dream dresses." -

Tortilla-less Chicken Enchiladas

This is comfort food at its finest, and especially on a cool Fall evening! I had left over Enchilada Sauce and couldn't let it go to waist, so off to Pinterest I went to get some inspiration. First thing that obviously popped up was Chicken Enchiladas, however you know I try to avoid carbs so why not just scrap the tortillas entirely. To add that extra filling I took literally whatever veggies I had in my fridge chopped them up and threw them in. Just thinking about it now and looking at the picture below is making me want to remake this dish. So delicious. So easy to make. Ingredients and Directions, as well for my homemade Enchilada Sauce, are below.

1. Chicken Breast - 3 Shredded
2. Enchilada Sauce (Ingredients and Directions HERE)
3. Cheese - Shredded
4. Green Onion - 1/2 Chopped
5. White Onion - 1 Chopped
6. Red Pepper - 1/2 Chopped
7. Yellow Pepper - 1/2 Chopped
8. Jalapeno - 1/4 Finely Chopped
9. Garlic - 3 Cloves Pressed
10. Salt and Pepper - To Taste
11. Olive Oil - 1 Tbsp

1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees and bake Chicken Breasts for 20 minutes. Season Chicken with Salt and Pepper to taste.
 2. While Chicken is baking, place Olive Oil in a frying pan to cook White Onion, Red Pepper, Yellow Pepper, Garlic, and Jalapeno. Season with Salt and Pepper to taste and cook until soft, approximately 8-10 minutes.
3. Remove from Chicken from oven, let sit, and then shred.
4. In a baking dish place shredded Chicken at the bottom, layering Onion, Peppers, Garlic, and Jalapeno on top, then spoon Enchilada Sauce over top (ensuring all Chicken and Veggies are covered with sauce), top with shredded Cheese and chopped Green Onion.
5. Put the baking dish in the oven until Enchilada Sauce has warmed and Cheese has melted, approximately 5-10 minutes.
6. Remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes. Then serve and ENJOY!

Miu Miu - #PFW Spring 2017

"Miuccia Prada was apparently in a playful summer mood when she put together the Miu Miu collection. At a time when there's so much trouble and stress in the world, it's sometimes a treat to take a break from thinking too much. Who, at this juncture, wouldn't want to buy into the sunny retro-fantasy of Italy at its glamorous postwar peak? That's when Prada was a girl, of course. This is a period she knows so well - the optimistic culture of '60s and early '70s prints. All of these looks were accompanied either by beach slides or wedge sandals, which, on close inspection, had shells and starfish embossed into them. Later, they were worn by delightfully sexy '50s pinup girls in ruched bikinis. It was a great deal of fun, gratefully received in this time of chaos." -

Kate Blushes Out At Tiffany

Kate Hudson walked the Tiffany Blue Carpet at the reopening of the Tiffany & Co. store in Beverly Hills on October 13th wearing this IN-CRED-IBLE head-to-toe blush ensemble, I mean those silk, high-waisted, wide-leg pants are just to die for! The "How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days" starlet completed her look with dramatic plunging neck blouse, full-length top coat, sparkly box clutch, simple sandals, diamond necklace, bracelet, and ring, tasselled hair, sultry smokey eye, and nude lip. There literally is nothing about this look I would change.

Mini Review - Elabloom

Now that Fall is finally here, the weather has cooled down and the leaves have started to fall, it's time to bring out those cozy sweaters, leather jackets, boots, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and dark bold lips. However, along with the cooler temps comes dry/irritated skin, which no one likes but unfortunately has to deal with year over year. I strongly believe I have found two products, both from Elabloom, that will help conquer your fall skin problems. I have been using Elabloom's Spray & Go Body Lotion and Elabloom's Exfoliating Body Scrub together daily for the past 6 weeks and my skin has honestly never felt or looked better, not only is it super hydrated, it is also extremely smooth to the touch. The products can obviously be used alone however for best results I believe used together is the way to go. Both the Elabloom Spray & Go Body Lotion ($16.95) and the Elabloom Exfoliating Body Scrub ($14.95) can be purchased on Elabloom's website, where Elabloom offers free shipping on orders over $20, and $10 flat rate for orders under $20. 
You may be wondering who Elabloom is, well they are a Canadian based company founded in 2011, creating unique face and body products. Heavily inspired by holistic benefits, the use of parabens, phthalates, and petroleum are no where to be seen, however still insuring corners are not cut when trying to save on cost. Ingredients are pulled from Earth's Bloom, meaning the healthiest products for your skin care and the thought of being one with nature, hence the name Elabloom.

Elie Saab - #PFW Spring 2017

"It's about dancing - the disco, the seventies! I lived through those years and remember my parents then. I Think I took a lot from that decade through them," Elie Saab said, as he loosely twined a thick golden ribbon around Mayowa Nicholas's neck backstage. And in this collection he did, indeed, process many of the tropes of that decade - and then Saab-ified them, hard. Deeply Halston-esque silk gowns in rainbow striped or primary colors made a few cameos. There were also pleated skirts and necklines that plunged as low as Nixon's post-Watergate approval ratings. The '80s leg-of-mutton box was dutifully ticked. Saab contemporized his output a little by teaming some full-tilt sequined gowns with matching sequined baseball caps - and some starry ones too. And the black bomber jackets with split arms and golden ringlet details were sleekly pratique. This was as glitzy, fun, and light as a night spent busting booze moves to the tunes from way back when." -
