The inspiration behind the summer love collection are those meaningful relationships ,we as women, all have. Whether its best friends, mothers, daughters, sisters, cousins, we wanted to create a collection that celebrates those personal connections and provides you with daily reminders.
Jillian Harris and Melanie Auld have designed some really fun and classic pieces with a little modern twist. Jillian brings that girly, pretty, loveable vibe and for Melanie it was about taking that and infusing a bit of a modern edge.
All their pieces are brass based with 14kt gold plating. Moonstone, turquoise and pink opal stones mix beautifully with pave and heart detailing.
Meant to be layered and lived in.
In an effort to give back, they are donating $3.50 for every piece of jewelry sold to A Better Life Foundation. Which is the cost of a meal. Buy a piece of jewelry and feel good about helping to feed someone who needs it.

Not only did country superstar Miranda Lambert stun during her ACM performance, the Female Vocalist of the Year (naturally) stunned on the red carpet as well! Celebrity Hairstylist for PRO Beauty Tools Johnny Lavoy explains how he created Miranda’s sexy, wavy textured hair:
“I wanted to create a sexy, wavy texture for Miranda’s look. I used a beach spray for a little texture from the start, then scrunched her hair while drying it with the PRO Beauty Tools Professional 1875 W IONIC AC Motor. Then I curled her hair with the PRO Beauty Tools Professional Gold Curling Iron 1 ¼”, alternating from section to section. I love this curling iron because of its 24 hour curl lock guarantee – which was perfect for a big night like this! I wanted to create a natural, sexy feel so I left out her ends to really get that textured look. To finish, I used hairspray to hold it.

I have entered probably one of the greatest contests in the world. I have followed
Global Degree during their Asia travels last year and completely fell in love with everything they were doing.
It was this beautiful photo that captivated me and completely touched my soul. I have always been a fan of Natalia’s photography, the way she captures emotion in her shots is breathtaking. But this photo was extra special, the human connection stole my heart and brought tears of joy to my eyes. It was at that exact moment that I knew I wanted to bring what I was feeling with her photography into the writing I create in this world. I have always wanted to move people with my writing and Nat was a beautiful inspiration to take it to the next level.
The love that Global Degree is spreading throughout the world by showing us the different cultures and beauty from counties that some have misconceptions about is amazing. I WANT TO BE A PART OF THAT! To do this VIDEO for their contest was life changing for me, it scared me so bad to put myself out there and be vulnerable. But you know what……. Because of this I now know there is absolutely nothing I can not do. I would love nothing more and be forever grateful if you could vote in the link in my profile and share with your favourite humans.

73rd ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS
Jeanine Lobell Creates a Dewy Smokey Eye For Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett dazzled in a pink gown on the Golden Globes Red Carpet. To compliment the dress, Makeup Artist Jeanine Lobell wanted Blanchett’s look to be pretty but not too soft so she gave her a dewy smokey eye.
To achieve the look, Lobell used a combination of three Giorgio Armani Eye Tints instead of powder shadow to create a sheerer version of a traditional smokey eye. She started with Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #12 Gold Ashes across the lid. She then used Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #1 Obsidian instead of a pencil or liquid liner, using it along the lash line placing it from the top and then wrapping it around to the bottom creating a small C around the outer hallow of the eye crease to give a smokey effect. On top of the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #1 Obsidian in the crease, she layered Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #7 Shadow feathering it lightly.
Lobell wanted to give Blanchett a “glow-from-within” on her cheeks so she used Giorgio Armani Cheek Fabric in #507 and then brushed Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Compact over it.
Jeanine didn’t want a heavy look on the lips so she just tapped on Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in #508 Daybreak to keep the sheer textures consistent.

Backstage at Prabal Gurung during New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 Collections
The spring season is truly about “optimistic & spiritual romance of two opposite worlds: East and West.” The sensuality, femininity, vibrant colours & textures of the East merged with the practicality, pragmatism and movement of the West. It’s a celebration of what resounds with me most: femininity with a bite. The motifs, embroidery and textures are inspired by the artist Laxman Shrestha and shapes and silhouettes a feminine take on American Sportswear.
THE NAIL LOOK
For the eleventh consecutive season, Prabal Gurung turned to Sally Hansen, the #1 Nail Colour and Nail Care brand in the US, and Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Colour Ambassador, to create exclusive nail looks.
Madeline explains, “For Prabal’s nails we chose a pale yellow “Mum’s the Word” with an organic flow of white shapes. The shapes are painterly brush strokes curves and are inspired by his feminine silhouettes while the colour combination gives the look a sporty edge.”
Mum’s The Word and Let’s Snow are part of Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection that infuses trend-setting shades with an expert-quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure delivers seven salon manicure steps in one bottle. Chip resistant strength joins gel-quality shine. Must-have colour meets nourishing benefits. Plus, with a built-in base and top coat, it’s everything you need to achieve a professional manicure at home.
Sally Hansen Global Colour Ambassador Madeline Poole is a nail expert working in New York and LA. Trained as a painter, Madeline worked odd jobs like vintage poster restoration as an art student in Baltimore. Her unique talent in crafting innovative designs, emphasis on skin care and attention to the hand as a whole makes her one of the most sought after names in the beauty industry. As part of the collaboration with Sally Hansen, Madeline will help set the artistic direction for a new generation of modern nail looks and collections with her fashion-forward vision on a worldwide basis.
