Wendy Mignot has a gift for creating exquisite pearl and leather jewelry

IMG_5885

 

I’m not much of a jewelry person. Shoes? Yes … Jewelry? No. That is, until I discovered Wendy Mignot. My husband bought me a beautiful pair of earrings to mark my 40th birthday about 10+ years ago. I have worn nothing else on my ears since. Move over 40th birthday present, you have been temporarily replaced by my new Wendy Mignot Lavender pearl earrings. Check out my new pair of  Coastal Petite Lavender Freshwater Pearl Stud Earrings. Not only is lavender my favorite color but when I saw these pearl stud earrings, I could not resist. These particular pair of earring are from the Coastal Petite Collection and have sterling silver backs. Wendy Mignot states perfectly that “Each pearl is unique; each piece is unique”. You will find this to be true when you view her collection.

There are eight unique collections with pieces such as earrings, bracelets  and necklaces. The necklace below, from the Seacrest Tahitian collection is handcrafted in leather with assorted Tahitian Pearls. The Round Pearls (10-12mm) and  Drop Pearls (14-16mm) used to create this necklace are simply stunning.

Of course we can’t omit some of the beautiful bracelets like the bracelets form the Azur Turquoise collection. This Larimar and Freshwater Pearl Bracelet is one of my favorites. It’s  a limited edition and available in several lengths. This piece is definitely a turquoise lovers dream bracelet.

Wendy Mignot has been a designer all her life. Her world-renowned styles represent gypset style (artists who live and work around the world) and Bohemian Chic fashion. “Wendy Mingot’s one-of-a-kind jewelry became a trademark and her reflection of adventures at sea, with each design reflecting family, culture and heritage.” You can read about Wend’s amazing story at WendyMingot.com.

Lauren b. Hand Scrub made me feel like I just had a hand treatment at a spa

 

f316d0ce-dade-42cd-a341-bd0b0d5b5461

Lauren B. Polishing Hand Scrub is by far one of the best hand scrubs in the market today. I’m thirty eight so hand scrub is a must have to keep up the appearance of youthful looking hands. It goes on smooth with just a little grainy texture for exfoliation. After using it once, my hands looked and felt incredibly soft, silky and well moisturized. Must be the botanical oils and amino acids working. It feels like I just had a hand treatment at a spa. There’s no need for expensive hand creams when you use Lauren b. and her Polishing Hand Scrub.

You will find this amazing hand scrub at laurenbbeauty.com

Tips and Tricks for Purchasing the Most Ideal Watch for Your Look

8458bce4-cd60-4e59-b8b8-0b9fe4aa7e57

Buying a watch can be quite an intimidating activity especially if you are bombarded by a whole lot of stunning watches at once. There are so many watches that are available in the market and each of them has its special abilities. Swiss and German watch brands take the crown for the best of watches in the market. Majority of brands from these countries are devoted to creating premium quality watches. The unfortunate thing is that they do not really send out a guide that will help you pick out a watch that will match your look completely.

Finding the ideal watch

There are some tips and tricks that you can make use of to get that fantastic watch that will accentuate the beauty of your skin or the nice suit that you are wearing. To start with, you will have to learn how to differentiate between women’s watches and those made for men. Luckily, this is very easy. You will be able to pick out a watch and tell whether it is designed for ladies or for the gentlemen.

Secondly, you will also have to consider the activities that you spend a lot of time engaging in. There are people who spend most of their time in water (swimmers and divers). Do you really want to take off your watch because your job is under water? There are watches for divers and classic watches for people who just want to show up at their offices looking stunning.

When buying the watch check for:

As you shop for luxury watches you should start by picking out a store that has a quality guarantee. There are online shops nowadays and that is where many people are doing their shopping. You will not want to pick out a watch that costs half the national debt only to discover that it is a substandard item. Check out online stores like https://brathwait.com/ and others and you will find a host of options to choose from. As you probably know by now, where there is variety there is always going to be quality.

The best watch that will suit your look will depend on factors such as:

  1. Band

Do you want a metallic band or leather? A majority of luxury watches have their bands made from these materials. If you are one of those people who are all about dark colored outfits then you will probably want to get a watch with a band that is not as dark.

  1. Dial

The face of the watch comes in all colors nowadays- blue, black, red, white etc. You can pick out a watch with the perfect dial according to your wardrobe’s theme. A luminous dial is always fine if it sails your boat.

  1. Bezel

This is not exactly important when it comes to style but then it can add oomph to your entire look. It is a really minor thing but it packs a punch. Divers will tell you how important a bezel is to them as they work under the water.

With this information you will have an easier time picking out a watch that works perfectly for both your style and your daily activities.

The Drink Menu That Keeps You Looking And Feeling Beautiful!

2_AF-Variety-Image-20130314

It is no secret that what you put into your body has a direct relation to how you look and feel. Being as health-obsessed as I am, and living in Hollywood amongst many models, I am always one to seek out advice from the experts and try new products to see if they work.

These days, “Beauty Beverages” and health drinks have been flooding the market, promising to help with anti-aging, skin perfection, and help your overall health & wellness. According to market research firm Mintel, nearly 600 new food and drink products with “functional beauty benefits” have launched since 2009, and the number continues to increase as the “health-trend” continues to grow worldwide.

“Drinks with beauty and additional health benefits usually contain vitamins, amino acids, or botanicals that possess antioxidant activities,” says dermatologist Francesca Fusco, MD. “A person should usually get enough of these nutrients through diet. But drinking them is a reasonable way to supplement.”

13094304_1709355789323602_7436309773509445444_n

CJ Comu, the creator of EarthWater (also known as FulHum), which is a black-colored beverage made from 100% natural minerals from within the Earth, tells me, “As a manufacturer of a healthy brand of beverages we do not make any medical claims, but third party reports clearly state two important facts (1) drinking water is very important to your health and hydration as well as removing toxins from your body (2) drinking FulHum puts the much needed micro nutrients into your body to fight off bacteria and disease. Drinking proper ph level water like FulHum and infusing natural minerals will make you look and feel better.”

And if you are looking to feel better with another option too, Vandana Sheth, RD, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics tells me that people should give Alo Drink (sold at Whole Foods) a test. Sheth explains, “This juice contains sea buckthorn berry, which boasts omega-3s,-6s,-7s, and-9s. Together, these aid digestion, regulate inflammation, and maintain healthy skin and muscle.”

Pulp-free lineup

But why not stick to just drinking normal, regular water like most people have been doing forever?! Comu of EarthWater details the differences stating, “Regular water lacks a high ph (very important for the body) and more importantly regular water does not carry or deliver much needed micro nutrients from the Earth into the human body to keep it healthy longer. It’s important to drink H2O, but it’s more important to put something that delivers nutrients into the body and blood stream and not flush the body of nutrients you need.”

And while we are on the topic of giving your body the proper nutrients it needs, one of the most important “glam secrets” is that everyone should eat a healthy breakfast along with a proper morning drink – not coffee!

Hollywood-based health expert Michael Steiner explains further saying, “Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day; It gets you up and fuels your body with the proper ingredients to last throughout the day. But what people may not know is that drinking green tea in the morning – over water or coffee – is best for feeling good and glamorous all day long. Green Tea contains L-theanine which has been found to induce a calming effect on the mind by releasing dopamine, the body’s feel-good chemical.”

In addition to Steiner’s advice, research proves that Green Tea is great for the memory and keeping the mind sharp. This is because it contains a very small amount of caffeine which is wonderful for helping you wake up in the morning. The level of caffeine is far less than that found in coffee, so you can enjoy the benefits without the inevitable crash that comes after drinking a coffee.”

So, whether its improving your focus, enhancing your beauty/skin, boosting your mood, or giving you some added energy, what you drink (even if its just regular H20) has everything to do with how you look and feel. There are so many options for beverages out there, but make sure you do some research beforehand, and don’t be afraid to try something new!
