Positivity Bracelets by Alex’s Angels

There is a new trend that has begun. Bracelets with “Positivity” by Alex’s Angels are a thing that will have everyone talking. They are new and very unique but great to have around at the same time. These will help for those that wear them to think positive at all times.

Alex’s Angels has different varieties to choose from. Some are made with crystals, some with sets. You can get them in black, different colors or even just a tee shirt printed with “Positivity” on them.

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, they also have Irish “Positivity” bracelets for you to choose and wear. As the old ways are, if you’re not wearing green, someone will pinch you. They can’t if you’re wearing these.

The “Black Positivity Bracelets” will match any occasion, style or just for every day. Check out the photo for a unique view of these and how they are shipped, wrapped and carefully packaged.

This is brought to you by Alex’s Angels and written by Lia Burres. The item was given to me in exchange for my honest thoughts and review. There has been no other compensation, nor is there any intended.

Phytoceane Brightening Radiance Serum

I’m excited to tell you how much I love this new antiaging product called Phytoceane Brightening Radiance Serum. This product was created to lighten dark spots and brighten your overall complexion. It’s made from plants that grow in the ocean, along with vitamins C & E.

And here is why they are so special…

DICTYOPTERIS: overall brightening effect, limits the skin’s natural
pigmentation and reveal the transparency of the complexion
SEA LILY: prevents the appearance of dark spots and reduces their appearance
VITAMIN E: antioxidant, helps to prevent skin aging
VITAMIN C DERIVATIVE: helps boost skin radiance, limits the formation of dark spots

It’s so easy to apply, very light going on and I love the fact that it’s fragrance free. I have sensitive skin and I am always looking for products that won’t irritate my skin. In the short time I’ve been using this antiaging serum, I’ve been impressed with the results. My skin looks and feels great. I can only imagine the longer I keep using this product, the better my skin will look.

Designer and Mick Jagger’s girlfriend L ‘Wren Scott found dead

L’Wren Scott, a designer and the girlfriend of Sir Mick Jagger, has been found dead in her New York City flat.

Scott, 47, was found at 10:00 am by her assistant. Police are treating it as a suicide, although the medical examiner has yet to determine an official cause of death. In a statement Mick Jagger said he is “completely shocked and devastated” by Scott’s death. L ‘Wren was found hanged, scarf tied to a doorknob in her Manhattan apartment. Scott was born Luann Bambrough, and was raised by adoptive parents in the US state of Utah.

Scott began her career as a model in Paris shortly after graduating high school in her home state of Utah. She went on to pose for notable brands such as Thierry Mugler and Chanel, before moving to California in the early ‘90s and establishing herself as a sought-after stylist. Scott also launched her fashion brand in 2006. Sarah Jessica Parker, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman have all worn her gowns to the Academy Awards, while other high-profile names such as Reese Witherspoon, Christina Hendricks, Sandra Bullock and even First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen wearing her designs.

She and Sir Mick, the singer of the Rolling Stones, began dating in 2001. Via

Scott texted her assistant at 8:30 a.m. and asked that she come over, police sources said. When she arrived, she found the body and called 911. Police did not suspect foul play, a source said, but the Medical Examiner’s Office will determine a cause of death. No suicide note was found. Via NY Daily News.

The former model met the Rolling Stones singer in 2001. Her work can also be seen on the big-screen: she designed the costumes for 1996’s “Diabolique,” “Ocean’s Thirteen,” “Eyes Wide Shut” and “Shine a Light,” Martin Scorsese’s documentary about The Rolling Stones. In February, she announced she had canceled her London Fashion Week show. In an eerie coincidence, Scott’s official Facebook page and Twitter account had new posts appear online around the time of her death. Via NY Daily News.

Her twitter and facebook read at 10:52am: “today ‪#love ‪#timwalkerphotography ‪#lwrenloves…”

The fashion community is pouring in on twitter with their condolences like Marc Jacobs who wrote: “Rest in peace, L’Wren Scott. You’ll forever be missed.”

Sad day for sure, the fashion world has lost another innovator to suicide. We can never know what struggles haunted Ms Scott but I hope she has found peace. I remember attending one of her events and I was able to meet her and Mick Jagger during fashion week. They were both happy, dancing and having a good time. R.I.P L ‘Wren Scott. More information sure to come.

Fashion Tips for Pear-Shaped Women

Everybody and every body is different — that’s what makes our world such a beautifully diverse place to live. But for some women, dressing for their particular body shape is more challenging than others. For pear-shaped women in particular, the discrepancy between upper and lower body sizes can be frustrating. But with a little research, dressing for a pear-shaped body can be easy and fun.

Highlight Your Assets

Often, women with pear-shaped bodies have smaller upper bodies than lower-bodies. If this is true in your case, use it to your advantage by highlighting a trim tummy or great breasts. Choose tops that cling to your upper body while leaving your pant or skirt choices on the looser side. If you have a long, slender neck, highlight it with multi-strand necklaces that drape in rows to show off the elegance of having an elongated neckline.

Use Color to Your Advantage

A major mistake that both pear-shaped and overweight women make when selecting wardrobe choices is thinking that by dressing all in black, they will be creating an overall slim silhouette. While it is true that black is a slimming color, for pear-shaped women, dressing in a monochromatic color scheme of any color or shade can create a boxy effect. Instead, choose a bright color or interesting patterns in a top, shirt or blouse, and stick to a black, navy or dark gray pair or pants or skirt to create the streamlined look you want.

Dress Your Best

Dresses are the pear-shaped woman’s secret weapon. When selecting dresses, aim for an A-line style that is fitted on top and gives a slight flare on the skirt. Avoid fitted dresses or pencil skirts. The use of A-line or empire waist dresses camouflages wider hips and thighs that characterize the pear-shape. Thus, dresses give the illusion of having a figure that is as small as the upper body all over. However, pear-shaped women still need to adhere to the typical “light on the top, dark on the bottom” mantra of dressing.

Put Your Best Foot Forward

An often overlooked but seriously important part of making the most of your pear shape is your choice of footwear. Too commonly, women think that footwear has no impact on the appearance of their body shape, but they are woefully misled. The number one best choice in footwear for a pear-shaped woman is the pointed toe, which creates a nice, extended look to the leg. Stiletto heels will throw off the balance of your look, but other types of heels will help elongate the look of the leg. One shoe style that pear-shaped women should avoid at all costs is the rounded-toe style, which cuts the foot off and gives the appearance of stunted legs.

Peter Gerakaris at Bergdorf’s

You’re walking up fifth avenue and then bam! You get hit with all this color and not sure what it is you’re seeing. A mannequin in a crinkled Pucci dress with a hat-head in the center of a storm of honey combs, leaves, acid wash, and colors that take you for a spin. And at the bottom, a mirror absorbs all the images and confuses you even more.

It’s all this and more at Bergdorf Goodman’s window display by Peter Gerakaris at 58th street and fifth avenue in New York City. His display is titled “Rappaccini Origami Terrarium (Nocturnal View).” It’s a mixed media installation with origami sculpture, part of the new art installation “Art Matters!”

Kind of sounds like the name of an opera and so it is with a diva causing lots of drama in her own world spun with an explosion of origami. The center of this installation is calm like a tornado, but as you get towards the edges, the mayhem begins. Folded triangles cut into faces, honey combs bounce on top of each other, and then you think you figured it out and then wham, you didn’t.
