Sparkle & Shine for the Holidays: Chloe and Isabel's Lumiere Collection

I've been trying to find something to do with my life that is creative and fun. This led me to a direct sales company called Chloe and Isabel. Chloe and Isabel is a jewelry line that is fully designed in NYC. Each piece is unique and has a lifetime guarantee. More importantly, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVVVVEEEEE their jewelry.

On Monday, I was lucky enough to meet up with a great group of Merchandisers in NYC to learn more about the jewelry. I was also able to touch, see, and try on the new Winter Collection, the Lumiere Collection. Just like the name entails, this collection is full of LIGHT, sparkle and beauty.

This was the display when I walked into the event room:

 Every piece was more beautiful than the next.

Here are some of the beautiful bracelets that are offered. They are also perfect as stocking stuffers:

My favorite pieces from the collection are the Gray Pearl Convertible Necklace, the Retro Glam Square Cut Crystal Necklace (perfect for Brides as well), and the Midnight Reverie Statement Necklace.

All of these gorgeous pieces are found HERE at Chloe & Isabel by Stefy.

WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE? Comment below with your favorite piece.

Chloe & Isabel: The Morningtide Has Arrived

Today I want to introduce you to Chloe and Isabel's new Morningtide collection.

If you don't now know Chloe and Isabel, it is a direct sales jewelry company that has something for everyone. It has the "Chloe" jewelry which are edgier and are more statement type of pieces. It also has the "Isabel" jewelry which are the timeless, delicate pieces.  All of the jewelry is also nickle free and hypoallergenic, which is super important to me.

The new Morningtide collection is full of  pastel colored jewelry, with bold pieces, such as the Morningtide Stretch Brecelet and daintier pieces, such as the leather rhineston bracelet and stud earrings.

My favorite pieces in this collection are the necklaces. Their colors look gorgeous against a dark shirt or dress.

 Take a look at the entire collection HERE.

Tell me which one is your favorite piece.

Good As Gold

I haven't been around much because of a career change that I have been transitioning too. Now that I'm starting to settle into my new position, hopefully I will have more time to post more often.

Since I'm feeling Golden today, it will be today's nail theme for the blog.

The first polishes come from Avon. Although Avon polishes are relatively inexpensive compared to all of the big name polishes, I find them easy to apply and quick to dry. This was true for the polishes  in the Brushed Metals collection. I also really liked their finished look. The ring finger is  Brushed Gold and the other fingers are painted in Burnished Copper.:

My second golden look:

This next one is a picture with gold nails mixed in with with a deep, espresso brown nails and it comes from JULEP.

This brown is so dark that in certain light, it seems almost black. However, I love this dark chocolate color especially for the quickly approaching  fall and winter. It also compliments the rose gold color very well. I'm in love with all of these colors, both individually and together.
The brown is Julep's Fiore. 
The rose gold color is from Julep's Champagne Trio and it is called Reiko.
The glitter on the pointer finger is also from Julep's Champagne Trio and it is called Clio.

Are any of you having "golden moments" lately as well? Post your own golden nails and/or outfits under the comments.

Spring Mani

This year, Spring seemed to take forever to arrive. Last week, I was so excited about the warmer weather.  I walked around looking at all of the blooming flowers.

I took this picture while hanging out with my boyfriend:

Today, I walked into Walgreens and was looking at Essie's new Neon Collection  and found their bubblegum pink color called "Boom Boom Room"

It reminded me of the colors of the flowers blooming, so I decided to do a Spring Look Inspired by my picture.

I matched the pink with a rose gold metallic from Julep called "Zelda"

I love how these colors go together.

What do you guys think about these colors? Have you guys been inspired by your surroundings lately?

Spring is Blooming

The weather seems to finally have received the memo that spring has arrived. It's starting to warm up and I couldn't be happier. I have way too many cute, colorful shoes to use and the long winter has kept them in my closet for way too long.

One of the shoes that I was able to show off was my Justfab Belfast. They are the perfect, colorful wedge.

This is my take on an outfit that is a great transition from winter to spring.

Pink Cami from Ann Taylor
Lace White Shirt from Mark.
Blue Ombre Pants from JustFab
Necklace & Change It Up Bag by Mark.
Watch by ShoeDazzle
Belfast Wedges from JustFab

On my nails, I have Julep's Mackenzie, which is a beautiful, bright green. It went on smoothly and easily.

Easter Festivities WIth Style

Since I was a child, Easter and Spring go hand in hand. It's the day that you throw your wintery dark, black clothes to the back of your closet, and you bring out your flirty, colorful pieces.

This Easter, I was able to share it with my parents and cousins. We had a huge feast including paella, roast beef, lasagna, etc. While we enjoyed our lunch, the little ones were eagerly antacipating the Easter Egg Hunt, which turned out to be a huge success.

All in all, it was a great day with the family.

My Easter outfit included a beautiful green dress that my boyfriend bought me from Francesca's.

I paired it with Mark.'s White On Time Blazer and Mark.'s Studs and Style Stretch Belt

My sparkly gold ankle boots are from ShoeDazzle

All of my accessories, including necklace, ring, bracelet and watch are from Mark.

I also had to paint my nails to go with the Spring Theme:

From Thumb to pinkie: Julep Joy, Julep Leila, Julep Minnie, Julep Courtney, and Essie Mint Candy Apple

Happy Easter and I hope you guys had a great day as well!

Clean, Sweet and Oh So Fabulous!

I love, Love, LOVE, beauty products. Because of this, I'm always trying a variety of products from different brands.

At the moment, these are my recent top 3 products for this week.


My favorite beauty product at the moment for giving me a squeaky clean face is Mask of Magnaminty from Lush. I have used it about twice a week  for the past couple of months and I really do feel like it's cleaning deep into my pores. My boyfriend the other day commented on how my face looks "less bumpier" (his words) and nicer. I believe it's a combination of using this mask and my Clarisonic Mia daily.


I have super dry skin, so I have an array of lotions, body butters. etc. Lately, I have been using Mark's Body Butters every night. My two favorite scents are Lemon Sugar and Plum Berry. I alternate between the two of them. Although the scents are on the stronger side, they are not overpowering. I love both  of them. The scents are both sweet and feminie.


I received Julep's Rock Star Cream in my March box recently. Yesterday, I put it on like 3 times. Remember when I said that my skin is dry. Well if someone took a look at my hands, they would have thought they are looking at the hands of someone who is 50 years older than me. However, this cream makes my hands soft and they feel hydrated for a long period of time. I'm officially in love with this product.

Have you tried any of these three products? What are your thoughts on them?
