Relaxed Summer Style

Get ready for the heat!  A hot sticky week is on the way! How do you cope with  your hair and skin? Do you  keep cool while  still looking relaxed and chic?
The big  struggle for me is  getting ready for the day and as soon as I step out into the climate, nature takes hold.  The scrunchy comes out , the sleeves  are rolled up and I walk into the office like yesterday's 5:00.   Yes, there is a solution, the new hair products and skin care, allow us to  think ahead for seasonal changes and get prepared.  There are  those who have the gift  of looking  radiant no matter what  the weather! Here are a few hints!
  • Drink water all day!
  • Keep your hair away from your face.
  • Hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen 
  • Wear breathable fabric like 100% cotton and no polyester or anything suffocating or materials that may stick to your skin when you sweat.
  • Avoid layers.. (especially those layering tees!!) Simple is best! Think basic essentials:  shirt, bottoms, shoes. You'll be so hot you won't care about looking good. So make sure your BASICS look good!
  • Open shoes. Sandals are a must! 
  • Try to avoid dark colors  (  difficult )
  • Light makeup (avoid heavy foundations)
  • Simple white dress
  • Scarf wrap for your head
  • Misting water bottle
  • Pretty pedicures
  • I love Jeannette Graf /rejuvenation exfoliating firming pads
  • Eat lots of Fruit and veggies./  Be light on you feet/ lose the weight!
  • Try Keratin  treatments for frizzy hair!
  • Use firming creams for legs  and arms 
  • Favorite is Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer it is best for gradual, natural-looking self-tanning.


Enjoy your day!

Summer Blue

It's Memorial Day weekend  pretty madisons!   I'm feeling  the color blue! Yes, maybe a little red white and blue, yet in my mind is pretty ice blue like peaceful water.

Meaning of Blue
The color of the sky and the ocean. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence and heaven.
I hope your weekend is filled with peaceful days, thoughts and experiences!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Pretty in White

Hello fashionable friends.  Jump up and down, we have come to the weekend! Happy to have some time to relax and maybe  give some thought to a new look or shop for new summer styles. White is always a light easy look  especially in the spring and summer .  The new sheers are so delicate, crisp white shirts, small shirt waist dresses and of course a pair of white jeans never  seem to out of style! Here is my Fashion White post before I say good night and fall asleep.  Have a restful weekend and don't forget to do what makes you happy!

Christian Dior Resort 2014

Raf Simons  Resort Collection 2014 for Christian Dior 
Thought you would enjoy the Review by Tim Blanks 

The umbrellas at Monaco's Hôtel de Paris boast the cheery motto, "It never rains in Monte Carlo." For the past three days, it has done nothing but rain, which meant that the spectacular show staged by Dior tonight for Raf Simons' Cruise collection wasn't open to the elements as originally intended. A shame, especially when Simons said that regular visits from giant seagulls during the construction of the seaside venue had created a perfect Hitchcockian vibe. He'd hoped the birds would visit during the show itself. No such luck with the audience safely closed off from the driving rain behind thick sheets of plastic. But maybe the weather's refusal to cooperate was a blessing in disguise. The collection that Simons showed was all about the speed of life. With the promise of a glorious sunset over the Med buried under serried ranks of gunmetal storm clouds, it was easier to focus on clothes that were the very embodiment of a dynamic forward movement for Dior. 

Monaco made sense as a venue for a few reasons. Historically, there was the connection betweenChristian Dior and Princess Grace, which is now echoed by Simons' friendship with the principality's Princess Charlene. Five minutes of chat with her and it's obvious that she's a Euro-royal Katniss Everdeen. She'll do for Simons in Europe what Jennifer Lawrence has been doing for him in Hollywood. Both of them are young women on the furious move.
