Cool Calm Collective

Can I just say how much I adore Michelle Williams? She has come so far since her Dawson's Creek days in which another certain gal managed to make her way up the hollywood royalty ladder marrying a certain movie star:)

Anyhow, Ms. Williams is a great actor and on top of that she has a wicked fashion style. I LOVE her effortless cool fashion choices. loves.

Colour me bright

I can't rave enough about Essie's Lacquered Up which is a nice vibrant tomato red! There are so many red polishes on the market but I find it difficult to find the perfect red that isn't too orangey or too bluey. Lacquered Up is sooo perfect and makes me so happy..even with this sad, chilly spring weather we've been getting!

I've found a face illuminator that doesn't leave me looking like a shimmering-shiny disco ball from a past era (disco IS dead afterall am I right ladies?)

Anyway, I was trying to decide on the illuminator in either the 'copacabana' or 'orgasm'. In the end, I went with the copacabana because it was more of a highlight as opposed to the orgasm which gave more of a peachy glow...which is great if you're looking more for a blush. I was looking more for something I could tap over my cheekbones, temple and bridge of nose to achieve that natural dewiness. Verdict? LOVE IT! It doesn't look overly frosty like a lot of other illuminators...and a little goes along way. Keep that in mind when you look at the tube. It looks small..but you literally need a pin drop size on the tip of your finger, pat together with your other finger and tap onto aforementioned area of face to get a gorgeous dewy & fresh glow!

Okay, even though suspenders will probably initially remind you of the Steve Urkel days, you have to admit....the men rocking them here are pretty sexy (in a demure, nerdy kind of way, no?)

As ladies, we have so many options and ways to accessorize our outfits..but for men, it seems they are limited to the same types of things i.e. watches, hats *yawn*. That's why it's such a refreshing change to switch it up once in a while. Would love to see more guys in suspenders!

Just picked up a bottle of this yummy fruity goodness a few days ago at Sephora. It has a light scent of nectarine, just the perfect amount. I loathe fruity body lotions that are too strong, and especially ones that are too synthetic. Bleh. This lotion is moisturizing and feminine. Now my only concern is that I don't go through it too fast!

the peter pan collar

I've been a bit enamored with this lovely little trend as of late. I believe there's something very youthful & playful about the peter pan collar, perhaps because it reminds me of the yesteryears of my childhood.
Keep in mind, you don't need to look like a todler in this type of shirt. Pair it with some lovely pearls or some very grown-up earings to complete the look! loves it!
