Best of Spring: Accessories Report
Well girls, we've been hard at work researching all of the spring fashion trends, finding the best of the best in everything from denim and dresses to skirts and sweaters. We've been making our Must-Have lists and checking off those prized items one at a time, hoping against all hope that we would be able to find the perfect pair of figure flattering jeans for spring before they were all snapped up. And I've got to admit we've made great progress in getting those winter wardrobes all switched out and updated for spring. But there is one thing left to do. We've got to accessorize!
It has often been said that accessories make the outfit. Every fashionista worth her Balenciaga knows that a little black dress and a pair of strappy stilettos will only go so far. Need an ensemble for business dinner? Add an updated string of pearls and a chic clutch bag to that classic LBD for the perfect touch of professional chic. How about a Girl's Night Out? Accessorize with a multi-chain necklace, a studded wristlet and a pair of edgy skyscrapers and your LBD has gone from prim and proper to über-haute! As stated earlier, the accessories make the outfit!
I've had my girly girl posse hard at working researching the hottest accessory trends for spring, so let's get down to business!
Ankle strap/ankle wrap sandals : The emphasis is on the ankle this season in styles ranging from a chic and simple ankle strap to something a bit more statement-making. This is a great way to showcase your gorgeous gams with styles from boho-chic to downright edgy.
Sexy Sunglasses: You know you should protect your eyes from the harsh glare and bright sunlight, so you may as well look amazing while you do so, right? My favorite shades for spring are from Coach. I am blessed/cursed with long lashes and often have a hard time finding sunglasses that fit well, without my lashes rubbing against the lenses every time I blink. My shades of choice for spring (and most likely summer as well) are the New York Round sunglasses for daily wear and the Buckle Cat Eye Sunglasses for casual wear from Coach. Both have gradient lenses and offer 100% UV protection, and a very flattering fit.
Fashion Scents: Yes girls, scent is an accessory! As Coco Chanel said, "A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." Well these fabulous spring scents will have your future looking and smelling very bright indeed!
- Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede —The essence of charm. Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Cologne imagines peonies in voluptuous bloom, exquisitely fragile. It's flirtatious with a juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose and gillyflower, mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede. Luxurious and seductive.
- Clive Christian Noble VII Cosmos Flower — This beautifully feminine yet complex perfume gives depth to the modern gourmande genre of fragrance. A delicious blend of sweet benzoin and caramel in the base is given a Chypre twist with bitter cocoa, dry amber and a hidden touch of leather that unfurls as the fragrance warms. The bouquet at the heart wraps around a deep and rich fruity plum accord that fuses with the intensity of ylang-ylang, the sensuality of jasmine, the fruitiness of osmanthus and the chocolaty note of cosmos flower.
- Molton Brown Rosa Absolute Eau de Toilette — utilizes the rose scent as a depiction of the Late Renaissance period. With its deep rose hue and Royal Warrant of Her Majesty the Queen on every bottle, the Rosa Absolute Collection illustrates luxury and opulence at its finest. It features notes of rose absolute, violet leaf, black currant, raspberry, cinnamon, and patchouli.
- Lavanila Vanilla Lemon Rollerball — Bright & Clean. Juicy lemon blends with lush watery fruits, fresh bamboo and pure Madagascar vanilla for a clean and sexy softness. Bursting with freshness this energizing scent is utterly addictive. I also love the convenience of the rollerball - so easy to tuck into a pocket or handbag!
Chain Gang: The vote is unanimous — beautiful chains are the accessory of choice for spring and summer. From exquisite necklaces to bold bracelets in silver and gold, chain link is all the rage. Layers of chains or just one statement piece, choose the style which suits you best.
Fabulously Fresh Bags: Styles for spring are absolutely perfect — from the easy bucket bag and classic crossbody to the trusted tote bag with a fresh feel. Look for ladylike influences like cutouts, tassels, fringe and embellishments, as well as bags trending toward rustic. Choose the style and size that best fits your needs for spring, whether you just need a wristlet to carry a lipstick and credit card, or have the need to tote a change of clothes for a quick getaway!
It's all in the accessories darling!

She She Me's Favorite Things
Get Your Hand Out of My Purse,
I'm Not Giving You My Money by Crystal Oculee
"This book was inspired by the stories of many women who I have met over the years. It is about their challenges, failures, and successes. Their moving stories motivated me to write this book to help other women understand how every choice they make can either help or destroy their retirement. Learn from their inspiring and heartbreaking stories. I know they will want any woman who reads this book to be aware of the "wolves" that can, in the blink of an eye, wipe away hopes and dreams of her retirement. Discover the secrets to personal empowerment and what you need to know to find your own yellow brick road to financial inner peace. This book will help you understand the complicated relationship between you as a woman, your money, and your financial professional. Many women go through life with the illusion that their future is secure just because they set aside money for retirement and have a financial advisor who they believe has their best interest in mind. Many women don't ask the right questions, don't demand the right answers, and are routinely pushed away from being involved in the most important dream of their life... their own happily-ever-after."
This is a fabulous book that focuses on real situations and stories of women who are or have struggled with balancing their finances. You don't have to be a financial wizard to understand the content because it is written in a way that is totally relatable. I love the way the author uses humor along with creative analogies and metaphors (referring to fairytales and her own personal stories), to make it applicable to everyday lives. It is a great read for men and women alike!

Top Hair Trend Predictions for 2017
From John Frieda
Spring is nearly here, and that means a fresh start to everything, including your hair! These products will help keep you and your hair trending for the entire year!
THE LOOK: HEALTHY, SHINY HAIR
HOW TO ACHIEVE: This year, super healthy looking hair is all the rage. Whether your hair is short or long, creating glossy, wavy and healthy looking hair is what will be on trend. To achieve this look, use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like the NEW John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner to give hair an immediate dose of moisture in the shower. Colour need a boost? Try a clear at home gloss on any hair colour—apply John Frieda Hair Care Luminous Glaze Clear Shine once a week to add intense shine to hair.
THE LOOK: SOFT WAVES
HOW TO ACHIEVE: In addition to the shiny hair trend, soft waves are also in style for 2017. Creating these waves adds tons of volume and instantly enhances your look. Create these soft, natural looking waves by using John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam.
THE LOOK: NATURAL OMBRE
HOW TO ACHIEVE: Celebrity Colour and Hair Stylist Corinne Adams of Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon says that ombre hair is still trending right now, “Natural blonde and brunette ombre hair is still on trend, and we’re seeing it everywhere so far in 2017. By using John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter, Visibly Deeper, or Sheer Blonde Go Blonder In-Shower Lightening Treatments, you subtly lighten or deepen your hair colour without having to consistently visit the salon for touch ups. Because the Treatments only take hair one shade deeper or brighter, the end result is extremely natural—simply an enhanced version of your normal shade.”
