Spring Shoes Collection 2014 – Minute Monday

At the end of every winter, we tuck away the heavy duty boots and replace them with our dainty heels and twinkle toe flats. I had so much fun putting together my first Monday Minute this week to feature the type of shoes everyone will be wearing this Spring. Here are my picks: 1. BCBG Metallic Pumps – These pumps will take any of your low key outfits and add that extra needed pizzazz. 2. Khussa Flats – A style of South Asian handcrafted shoes made in India and Pakistan. My sister got me these awesome flats from her trip to Lahore, Pakistan. These shoes have delicate and intricate thread embroidery. In the days of Kings and Queens, these shoes were heavily embroidered in real gold and silver. Nowadays, they’re made with materials that make them affordable for everyone to purchase. 3. Charles & Keith Flats – Purchased at…

A career in Social Media Marketing

If you’re new to Social Media, first thing you should do is get on Twitter and Facebook. To start with, at least. There are a lot more platforms out there for you to experience, learn and possibly one day manage for your employer. Watch some tutorials on how to use these platforms. You will be surprised at how much knowledge there is out there on the web. Once you have gone past the beginner phase of learning the in’s and out’s of each platform, search for programs that help you optimize their use as a social media professional. Such as tweetdeck, hootsuite and understanding Facebook page analytics. At this point you should also start looking at companies who are doing amazing work with their social media. Companies that have compelling marketing strategies and have a massive following. One of my favourites is Oreo. When you’re applying to some companies make…

The Future of ROBOTS

Robots were invented to make our lives easier in some way or to do things that we cannot do, like exploring Mars. Although robots fascinate people, they have not yet made much of a mark on the world. Especially compared to the make believe ones we’ve seen in movies like iRobot and The Terminator. However, we’re very close to this changing. More companies are investing in the future of robots. The New York Times reported that in 2013, Google bought eight promising robot start-ups in the United States and Japan to help build a “new generation” of robots. These robots will make the electronics assembly process easier and possibly help with Google’s same-day delivery efforts. Andy Rubin, who was the mastermind behind the Android operating system, is working on this top secret Robots project. Amazon.com, which is Google’s competitor in the Robots category, stated that one day they want Amazon’s…

Spring has Sprung

It’s a beautiful day outside, so it’s only fitting to share a few of my favorite pieces for this season. Some of these items I just couldn’t wait and went out to buy them, so you’ll see them in my upcoming ootd’s (outfit of the day) on Instagram. 1. A perfect pastel satchel. This one is from French Connection and I love the spacious inner compartment! 2. The tea length skirt. Mini, midi and maxi have a great new member. I’m going gaga over this modest trend. The hem hits just above the ankle. 3. Spring studs. Floral is back, so get a nice floral pair. 4. Beach ready Tory Burch espadrille flats. 5. Nautical stripes. No matter what your personal style, stripes will surely fit into your spring wardrobe effortlessly. 6. Guerlain Meteorites Powder. 7. The Clutch. 8. Bold sunnies. If you don’t have a bold pair already, be…

How to Stack Necklaces, Rings & Bracelets: Stacks Stacks Stacks!

Stacks with necklaces, stacks with bracelets and even rings! Is it just another trend or a choice of style? If you ask me, it’s always been a personal preference for those who love the look of stacked jewelry. Lately it’s been trending and seen everywhere from magazines, social platforms and even on the red carpet. Here’s the quick cheat sheet of how to stack your accessories without looking like Mr.T : When you’re layering your rings, keep in mind that stacking your rings doesn’t work if you wear every ring you own. Also, if you plan to wear a chunky or cocktail ring, make sure you have polished nails; especially since they can bring more attention to your hands. 1. Pick a metal and stay within that theme. 2. Make a statement with a chunky ring and a small simple one on your pinky. 3. Wear your cocktail ring with…

How To Apply Eye Care

Eye’s are beautiful and come in so many different shapes, sizes and colors. They’re the most fragile part of your face. I remember learning this the hard way at an early age. I was 16 and just started as a Beauty Adviser. We had the opportunity to try all of the old and new beauty products from all sorts of brands. Cheap to luxury, all natural to anti-aging.. any brand you can think of, I’ve most likely tried it. One day after work we went to a seminar for NeoStrata. I love their products and know that there is no other like it. The fact that they state the percentage of Glycolic Acid it contains and that you can purchase it from a drug store is a bonus! (Let me know if you want me to do a post about Glycolic Acid in the comments below) Everyone who attended the…
