I’m ditching my old sweats for Los Angeles Apparel

November has arrived, and with it that chill that seeps into your bones and steals away every semblance of summer’s past comforts. Thankfully, I’ve found my new live-in uniform thanks to Los Angeles Apparel. I’ve spent more than I care to admit on the hunt for the perfect sweatpants – all in vain. The material is always wrong, scratchy or too thin. Or the elastic so tight my feet loose feeling within moments. The fit’s not right, they collect lint like cheap velvet. I’ve even made the investment on some luxury brand sweatshirts on my quest – to find that my oversize sweatshirt was actually so heavy (and not soft) that my shoulders were ablaze by the end of the day. I’ve also tried Amazon Basics, some pop-culture retail boutiques, you name it. When Los Angeles Apparel reached out and offered me some pieces from their collection, my past experience made me a sceptic – to say the least. However with no obligations asked, I decided to give them a try. I can’t tell you how …

this fall’s minimalist pop color: green

There may never have been such a strong color trend as this 2021 trending hue. The new fashion statement color – a bold hue of vivid green.  Perhaps due to society’s shift in getting back to nature, this color of life is dominating catwalks and streetstyle stars alike. (OK I made up the getting back to nature part… but hey, it makes sense). And, after doing some further digging into the trend, in fact the FW21-22 NYFW Color Forecast does call the color a tribute to “the fun side of nature.” Spotted on stars like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid (frequently spotted sporting this color trend), you probably can’t open your social without spotting some hue of primary to emerald green. Green is truly the color of life. And while fall slowly steals that away from us, we’re still reminded of summer memories with this grassy hue that somehow evokes a feel-good energy. Who wouldn’t want to capture that. And it’s not just your fashion influencers adopting the trend. Major luxury players like Bottega Veneta and …

best maison margiela replica fragrance (I’ve tried all of them)

There’s just something about finding the perfect fragrance to suit your mood. It’s like a little hint of luxury that everyone can afford. Just like fashion, it sets a tone, evokes memories, and inspires moments. I’m quite fairly obsessed with the Maison Margiela Replica fragrances. Having my first taste for the brand back in 2019, I’ve since shared reviews of some of my favorite fragrances, stories of my pup Naizak rolling in her favorite scents, as well as recommended Maison Margiela replica fragrances in multiple luxury gift guides. Beyond that, the cult following has spread to my closest circle of friends, who have often commented and converted to Replica scents as their own favorites. But what is the best Replica scent?  After several messages of inquiry I’ve received both personally and through the blog, I’ve decided to share this replica perfume review to briefly cover some of the finer notes of each of my personal favorites, and what you can expect to experience if you opt for a Replica perfume of your own. Maison Margiela’s …

all we need is time

The sunset was reflecting a spectrum if iridescent hues in the traffic paint. A softened depiction of the vibrant sky above. That’s when I knew I was dreaming again. And what a feeling. Like a cool spray of sea quenching a desert soul.  I have learned a lot during this past year of accosted endeavors and ceaseless pursuits. The most life changing of which – work can be the most devastating sabotage of progress if it consumes time beyond its purpose.  We should all pursue growth. Attack life with ferocity that overcomes challenges, and discipline ourselves enough to accomplish even the most arduous tasks. But, we must never let that consume us. Or else, you risk losing everything – even the outcome you so earnestly pursued from the start.  We are all human. As such, we’ve been created with an innate desire to learn and grow. But, when we channel our vision, we loose sight of the inspiration around us. We forget to breath. We don’t pause to listen, to learn.  There’s a point where pursuit …

typology paris review | personalized skincare with all natural, simple ingredients

As some of you may know, I’m quite particular as to what I put on my skin. Skincare is so critical, and ensuring well moisturized, pampered skin can keep you young for years. I’ve recently found a skincare routine that I’m quite fond of, but I’m also on ever on the lookout for new and interesting brands and products, while trying to manage a minimal “inventory” of my favorite products to support a more minimalist lifestyle. When Typology reached out offering a personalized skincare regiment, with products that contained as little as 5 ingredients, I couldn’t refuse. A few months later, after I’ve had the chance to consistently use the products for several weeks, and wanted to share this Typology Paris review. Before we begin, let’s talk about how and why the future of skincare and beauty is all about personalization. As consumers increasingly seek out beauty solutions suited to their specific needs, there has never been a greater need for personalization. Everyone has unique skin, so why create products that only tailor to one …
