Warby Parker Beacon Collection

Have you heard of Warby Parker? If you don’t, then now you know. This super fabulous eye ware brand is launching a new collection today called the Beacon Collection!

Warby Parker

The Beacon Collection is inspired by impromptu, can’t-duplicate-them all-nighters, when having no plans brings endless possibilities. Warby Parker designed its newest line of frames to make a similarly fine companion to late night dates, rooftop sunrises, and everything in between.

be Delectable Product Review

Do you recall a few posts ago when I wrote about Cake Beauty’s be Delectable line? Well, I had the opportunity to try two of the products and they are quite delectable!

I have been using the Ultra nourishing hand cream that smells of lemon cake and the decadent hair and body mist that is strawberries and cream scented. I have to say, I am very impressed by the hand cream that I actually use as a full body lotion. The be Delectable ultra nourishing hand cream is well-scented and although it is made of coconut oil, it does not have an oily feel, rather, it goes on light and leaves me moisturized for hours.

The decadent hair and body mist is light but smells perfectly sweet. It is more watery than other body/hair mists I use but I appreciate the refreshing feeling it has when it hits my skin. My only complaint is that the scent does not last all day on my skin.

I asked a few friends to try the products as well and this is what they had to say:

“Makes me want to bake a lemon cake!” – Nailah

“This lotion has a nice silky feel!” – Kristle

“Smells really good!” – Teia

Let me know if you try any of the Cake Beauty be Delectable beauty products!

Men’s Shoes: Put a Cork in It

I haven’t touched on men’s fashion in a while so I decided the debut of the Vans OTW 2014 Summer Prelow “Cork” shoes were the perfect opportunity! As you may know, I very much enjoy men’s fashion and often times wish I were a boy just so I could acceptably slip into a pair of men’s shoes - yes I said it!

These shoes are certainly ones I would love to rock and I want to know if you guys, and girls would too? The sneakers in the Van’s OTW (acronym for Off the Wall) collection are just what they mean – off the wall; out of the ordinary. The Prelow Cork footwear is a uniquely styled shoe made of “natural cork upper paired with simple black eyelets, laces, and fabric lining and a comfortable Ultracush HD sole below” available for purchase late July.

The Vans OTW Prelow Cork sneakers were created for the summer but in my opinion, can work for fall as well. The best thing about a shoe, other than its looks, is its ability to transition through seasons. That way you get more for your money!

Let me know what you think of these Vans OWT Prelow Cork sneakers and check out the rest of the Off The Wall collection here.

What I Wore: Shyla Edition

Wanda Grace, created by designer Laurie Underwood is a collection for those who are not afraid to embrace their style power. Their style objective is to stand out, while fitting in at the same time – much like my style! 

I was recently given the awesome opportunity to style one of the pieces from the newest collection called the Shyla Jacket. It is a finely detailed yellow cropped jacket with a scalloped bottom hem and sporadic gems.

When I first saw the Shyla jacket I was intrigued by its vibrant color but when I slipped into it, I instantly loved how it fit and imagined its versatility. It can easily transition from season to season and from day to night.

What I Wore: Sale Edition

Even though we just officially embarked upon summer, end of season sales are happening everywhere and now is the perfect time to shop!

In-store and online, retailers are weeding out the spring/summer merchandise to make room for fall styles. It seems like this process happens earlier and earlier each year but it’s a great time to stock up on goodies for the remainder of the season and even next year.

Over the past two weekends I have taken advantage of in-store and online sales, saving tons. So with that, here’s what I wore this past weekend – all on sale!
