shoes of prey review

Now the proud owner of a half-dozen pairs of custom made shoes from Shoes of Prey (being a fashion blogger has its perks), I figured it was about time to write a proper review.

immunocologie skincare review

the science of beauty with Immunocologie

Ever wish you could tap into and hack the chemistry of your skin? With insight into your skin’s biology, you would have the power to address your skin’s needs before they happen – preventing irritation, pollution, dryness and sensitivities. Well, Immunocologie is attempting to do just that. With over 10 years of research and development, their skincare team has worked to develop a line of skincare products with science at the forefront. Working with natural ingredients to provide defense from environmental stressors, Immunocologie prevents skin damage by nourishing your skin with the essential minerals and nutrients it needs to stay healthy, happy and protected. I have pretty sensitive skin, and I understand the side affects involved with placing unnatural elements in or on your body. My first attraction to Immunocologie began with the ingredient list. I’m pretty careful what I put on my skin, and if there’s a natural or home remedy – I’m likely to give it a try before resorting to packaged goods. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | skincare regime …

silk layers

something silk

Summer’s long gone and the craving for cozy has already started to set in. Chili has been on the menu twice this week, and evenings become a race to get home before dark. The moon that used to look friendly and cool has darkened to a cold foreboding stare. In search for the little comforts in life, we find ourselves groping for anything that has brought us relief in years past. Thick socks, riding boots, and dare I say… pumpkin spice latte. Yup… it’s happening. But not all the days a icy and unwelcoming. The east coast has still gifted us with a few days of lingering sun, and the moments between the contrast call for one solution – silk. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | grey silk cami c/o:GRANA | grey silk coordi joggers c/o:GRANA | grey cashmere cardigan c/o:GRANA | swan ring c/o:AURUM JEWELRY | cross diamond ring c/o:SQUAREGAL | grey marble bag c/o:CAFUNE | loafers c/o:NAKED FEET Silk has a way of caressing the skin and creating a sense of warmth and …

tria laser hair removal review

Smooth leg’s and goodbye to razors for life? Who wouldn’t be lured in by the temptation. I was, way back when the Tria was first introduced to me back in 2013. After much debate and a twinge of buyer’s remorse for the $449 purchase from Sephora, I ordered my first Tria laser hair removal 4X in March of 2013. I was the first of my circle to jump on the bandwagon, and have actually been wanting to do this review for quite some time because honestly – I was pretty surprised with the results. This review will be a blend of experiences from that first trial, to my most recent undertaking in collaboration with Tria to share with you all my personal journey with their laser hair removal system. In case you’ve been wanted to give it a try, here’s what you need to know (from one blogger’s perspective). photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | laser hair removal system c/o:TRIA BEAUTY First off, how it works.

monday felony case mood board

in case you’re in the mood

A monochrome palette for weekday inspirations. Setting the mood for a week of calm after returning from the rush of NYC. Shifting trinkets around, sliding fingers over the smooth marble and crystal textures of a new Felony Case collection, glancing quickly at the pages of a dated magazine – yet the classics never go out of style. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | iphone marble case collection c/o:FELONY CASE | marble handbag c/o:CAFUNE | timepiece c/o:HARPER AND BROOKS | monochrome loungewear top c/o:DAVID LERNER | monochrome laceup pant c/o:DAVID LERNER | diamond stack rings c/o:K’DANGELO Happy Monday friends, we’ve made it to the start of a new week. A subtle gloom lingers outdoors from the shadow of summer’s rain, but the mood indoors feels less than somber, enjoying today working from home. The softest luxury sweats, playful tunes, and a spirit peaceful – yet eager to start the new day. It’s truly the simple pleasures… appreciating the beauty in details, the feeling of softness on your skin, knowing that you’re in control of …
