Warmer weather is here and Nair is ready to help women on the go take the guesswork out of waxing with the Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Face Wax Strips.
The new Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Face Wax Strips with Perfect Temp™ technology were added to the popular Brazilian Spa Clay Line. The wax strips are infused with mango butter and açai berry, known to moisturize the skin, and mineral-rich clay known to purify the skin. The new wax strips take the guesswork out of waxing at home with the Perfect Temp™ technology. Each wax strip contains the Nair logo embossed across the strip. The wax strips are heated by hand and when the logo fades across the entire strip, you can apply on your skin. You can’t overheat it, so there is no risk that the wax will burn you, a fear that some women have. Enjoy smooth, beautiful skin for up to 8 weeks!
Don’t believe me? Check out this quick tutorial for smooth skin in seconds using the Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Face Wax Strips below:

As temperatures begin to drop and sunlight gets shorter, color choices also take a nose dive. Summer/Spring bright yellows and happy pinks turn into dreary blacks and somber grays. In the more northern cities like New York and Chicago, people are less concerned with “making statements” and more concerned with keeping warm. Winter has effectively dampened spirits.
Fortunately, it does not have to stay that way. A number of colorful pieces can be easier incorporated into dull hues to provide “pops” of colors that will brighten any gloomy days. Read on for ways to incorporate pops of color to brighten your outfit and your mood.
One of the easiest ways to add the color is to get a colorful coat. Designers like Milly Alexis are keen to the idea as well have made coats, like the one Leona Lewis is rocking, that will brighten any outfit immediately. Moncler also has a number of down coat that are meant to pop as well!
The ways to incorporate shoes to add pops of color are endless. Funky rainboots, bright pinks pumps, red ankle booties, bright oxfords…the options are endless. In an all-black outfit, shoes always add the perfect punch of color.
Bright Color Pants
Don’t be afraid to pop out your summer skinnies with a blazer. Those bright pants are the perfect way to add a splash of color without over doing it. They also double in keeping those legs warm!
When in doubt, grab a scarf! They can be knotted, tied, or wore loosely around the neck. A vibrant scarf can be both practical in keeping you warm, and stylish in setting off your look.
Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize! Your sunnies, nail polish, gloves all can serve as more settle ways to add pops of colors. A fresh mani and loud gloves, you can’t go wrong.
So don’t get stuck in the dull hues. Pack tons of color in your winter wardrobe and enjoy. Summer will be back before you know it!
If a raspberry, ivory, teal and gray color pallet is your thing then the Son Jung Wan Spring Summer 2013 was right up your alley for the next warm weather season. The show started with a Beautiful canary pleated dress that moved effortlessly down the runway. Embellished garments, knits and chiffon pieces caught our eye but the show stoppers were these 3D lace appliqué designs.
One of our favorite pieces included a blazer that was paired with ivory lamb skin shorts and there was even a 3D romper that grace the runway. Son Jung Wan is on our favorite list for sure. Check out a few of our favorite looks below that’ll give you a great outlook on what you’ll see from Son Jun Wan next year…

The maxi dress. The #1 essential element of spring now can reach superstar status with its ability to adapt to fall trends, colors & styles. With the last days of summer upon us, now is the time to scour those summer clearance racks for dresses, items and accessories that can carry you well into autumns chilly arms. Once autumn fully arrives, add a few layered pieces and weather-appropriates accessories and VIOLA! Your summer wardrobe survives to live another day!
There are Five Essential Maxi Dress options that you can find on sale now and wear later…
1. The Bold Blue Maxi Dress – Shades of royal blues, midnight blues and sapphires are excellent colors that allow creative layering while playing with bright, bold colors.
2. The Black & White Stripe Maxi Dress - Thick & thin stripes are great patterns that allow minimal or maximum accessorizing while incorporating the classic style of stripes.
3. The White Maxi Dress - Using a blank canvas to explore and layer with prints and colors is what autumn is all about.
Check out some of the accessorizing options that Refinery 29 suggests to max out the maxi dress from spring to fall…
Whatever you pair with your maxi, you can never go wrong with large chunky accessories, bold color bags, wedged or platform heels, a high quality leather jacket, a boyfriend blazer jacket or even a cute white tee underneath. Have fun shopping the end of summer sales and I’ll see you at the clearance racks soon…
If you’re anything like me, last week – you’ve avoided outdoor events, excessive travel and have been on the sick and shut in (air conditioned) list. It’s been beyond hard, trying to stay cool outdoors – but desperate times calls for desperate measures and clearly this heatwave isn’t trying to play nice at all.
So how do you fight the fiery heat (while staying cool…)? Fight fire, with these fire-hot looks sure to keep you super cool.
1. The Maxi Dress – The maxi dress exudes an airy feeling of a beautiful breeze..(even if you’re standing in an 107-degree subway station…) Nothing is worse than feeling icky, sticky & sweaty and the easiest way to avoid that feeling is with the maximum breathable power of the maxi dress.

2. The Cotton Romper – If you’re not a fan of dresses and love to pick up and go – the cotton romper is for you! I have praised the romper comeback this season (I swear my rompers are a God-send) and there’s no easier way to stay cool & fashionable, than with an easy to accessorize cotton romper.
3. Halter / Strapless Tops – For those of you who like to mix it up – these separates will have you covered without revealing too much. Halter tops are great for keeping you supported without wearing standard undergarments & there’s nothing more cooling (and freeing) than a strapless top. Pair both looks with shorts, skirts & accessories to complete your look at you’re set to go.
4. Lightweight Skirts – There’s nothing more flirty than a cute summer skirt! Pair it with a cute summer tee and take your look from the office to the nightlife without skipping a heated beat.
Whatever your fashion tastes, several of these trends can be mixed & matched to bring you relief this summer.
