GOODBYE SUMMER..

7eb3f10a47e9177f642ce8e718e25f71

Summers on its last leg and its obvious that the warm sun and lovely humidity is on its way out. While most of us are dreading winter rearing its ugly head at us and others are anticipating it, I’m over here thinking about all the lovely foliage and amazing photo ops that I will be capturing in the next few months. With this in mind, lets celebrate one of the lovely fall colors: Orange!

Orange shoes on the most important day of your life, now thats different!

As you can see orange is an amazing, bright, fun color and it highly represents a most loved or a most hated season of the year! For me, I love it because of the trees changing and the amazing sunsets but I hate it because it symbolizes that my beloved summer season is almost ending. I have the best of both worlds over here so I might as well embrace it, right?

Is this color one of your favorites? Could it be one of your favorites?

Orange you glad you stopped by….

Till the next post ~ Alice

EXPLORE YOUR SENSUALITY HAWAIIAN STYLE!

Is skincare important to you? Do you pamper your skin the way you should?  Is your skincare regimen up to par? If you answered maybe or absolutely not to these questions, I may have the perfect solution for you.

I have sensitive skin and I learned the hard way that I cannot put anything that hits the market on my face without researching it vigorously. I tend break out in bumps and blotches that almost look like hives. When I carelessly apply products the allergic reactions to the by products in certain beauty items is instant. I also found out that I cannot use products that contain Alpha Hydroxy or Retinol. These ingredients can almost burn my skin to the point that I need to wash them off as soon as possible. So that changed the whole beauty game for me since I needed to search for skincare that would cater to my sensitivity! I only use a handful of items that are safe for me and it sucks to be limited to those few. But I believe I was at the right place at the right time and I have found my holy grail in body and skincare…Let me share what works for me!

Let me introduce you to Sensual Beauty and boy is this gonna change the way you take care of your face and body.

Miss Zephorah Nure – Orangina heels and Photo by Authentic By John Ashford

Let me introduce you to the beautiful owner of Sensual Beauty. Her name is Miss Zephorah Nure and this beautiful lady is also known for her famous legs! Hmmmm? I wonder why -Vava Voom LOL!

Did you lose your train of thought? Yeah I’m sure you did so let’s focus on this skincare  then come back to check out the pic of Miss Nure laterz. Okay so as I was saying, these Hawaiian Spa Bath & Beauty products are the bomb.com and I really cannot lie about it. Lets look at each of these products as a whole and individually shall we?

image1

There are many products to this Hawaiian Spa Bath and Beauty Line but I decided to purchase a set for myself. I believe they may be purchased individually but I suggest purchasing a whole package as they all seem to compliment each other in one way or another.

I’m in love with this Mint Mud Masque!!!

Let’s start with my favorite product from the line – The Mint Mud Masque.  Before I discovered this masque I was using various products that were safe for sensitive skin but they weren’t my holy grail. This heavenly product came along and wow am I so excited with my results that I’ve almost ditched my other products. I use it two to three times a week as recommended and its made such a difference in the appearance of my skin. Before I had some pimples on my jawline and I’m highly allergic to Alpha Hydroxy and Retinol products and ever since I’ve been using this masque faithfully, my pimples have disappeared and my face is so much smoother and softer. All you do is apply some of this product on and wait for it to slightly dry and rinse or wipe off, thats it! That to me is fabulous and it smells like fresh mint just picked out of your garden. Gotta love it!

DSC_0010

Next is the Gorgeous Gardenia Sea Minerals Hydra-Silk Renewing Lotion and this is also a gem in this product line. Its smells just like if you’re in a field of soft gardenia’s. So imagine putting this on your face and experiencing it for yourself. It smells yummy and I apply this after using my mint masque and my skin feels so soft and smooth and I’m ready for my day or night whichever one I prefer to use it for. Just apply and enjoy the way it makes you feel!

DSC_0028

But wait …there’s more and here’s another gem to this line. The Sensual Sugar Scrub but this isn’t just any ordinary sugar scrub it has natural shea butter and honey. So when you smooth this on your skin it feels buttery soft and (please don’t do this LOL) its good enough to almost eat. You put it on your body, massage for a few minutes and it melts instantly making your application a pleasantly soft experience. This is a great product for your body but its also good for a before or after bikini wax soother. Note* Even though it says sugar scrub and it smells fabulous, do not apply this to the face area – only use on your body!

DSC_0009

Okay, now I introduce to you the ultimate me time incentive. You have to admit that we all need that amazing quiet me time – I know I do and this is where I highly appreciate this product line. In the above picture I share with you the Gorgeous Gardenia Luxury Bubble Bath. Just turn the water on and pour little of this in there and Voila your ready for your ultimate take away relaxation moment. Get in and soak for as long as you like, when you’re done you will truly smell and feel the difference on your skin. If you love the smell of Gardenia and soft, silky, skin then you need this in your life!

DSC_0011

Okay so there are a number of products in the Sensual Beauty line as you can see and  they can really make you feel sensuous and sexy. But here I give you another item that I simply LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Okay I have discovered that this Heavenly Hibiscus Silky Body Oil is an essential part of this beauty line. Why? Because this oil in my opinion completes the product line – its truly a must have! I love to use this oil after I wash my face at night, I just pour alittle on the palm of my hands and apply to my face and the next morning my face feels rejuvenated. You can also use this for your body especially your legs. Ladies, it’s summer and if you want those silky, soft, amazing looking legs – this is your go to product. You need this in your life! We all need this in our lives LOL!

image2 2

image1 2

Finally there’s one last product I want you to check out and thats the Pleasure Potion Tea! This tea is made with natural herbs and from what I’ve heard its an amazing relaxation drink. I can’t wait to try it myself – lord knows I need that! Check out the beautiful packaging and the can the product comes in…so pretty! If you’re not into all the spa products then at least try that pleasure potion tea – I’m sure once you try the tea the rest of the line will be of your interest!

Oh and I totally forgot to mention that this line was created with sensuality in mind so don’t be afraid to explore the sensuous side if these products with your significant other! Oh and Mothers day is coming up soon, doesn’t she deserve a day of spa treatment?

Hint, Hint: That sensuous oil sure does spark curiosity and the lovers imagination – okay, moving on….place your order today I highly recommend this for all the ladies that love  100 percent natural products in their body and skincare!

BEAUTY AND THE SHOES

Travel, Travel, Travel ….I love to travel – its my tranquil moment of relaxation and serenity, the time to reflect on how blessed I am to be able to do what I do and love my experiences along the way. Its also my time to put my brain on auto pilot and let myself enjoy the sights and sounds around me. Ahhh..I love my life! With that thought in mind, my dearest friend shoe designer John Ashford sent me an invitation to his third trunk show in New York City and I was so excited all week for its arrival. The day finally came and even though the weather was a little cold, the trunk show was the highlight of my day!  Knowing that the event was gonna be featuring shoes and beauty products made my braving the cold all worth it!

For those of you that have never attended one of John Ashford’s events, it is truly amazing. This time there were twice as many shoes as the last trunk show and the people that were in attendance couldn’t decide between one pair of shoes or the other! They were all beautiful and for every pair that the lovely ladies tried on there so many fabulous comments. With the shoe shopping being highly successful – we also had Skin care/beauty products to compliment the whole look. The beautiful model and owner of Sensual Beauty Zephorah Nure, was present to feature her amazing Hawaiian Sensual Collection. Her line features a variety of products with exotics scents of Gardenia and Hibiscus and essential oils to relax you after a stressful day…sounds amazing to me!

I always enjoy attending John Ashford’s events because you can learn a lot from his conversations and you can try on and purchase as many pairs of shoes as many shoes as you want in a cozy, comfortable setting. The people are always so warm and inviting, the conversations are intelligent and at times funny – you literally walk in not knowing anyone and walk out with a few friends added to your list. These events will make you wanna stay for hours and never leave but at the end of the day you can be assured that you’ve met your shoe shopping fetish and little extra!

My trip to New York City is always amazing and when I get invited to his events, I feel like a kid in a candy store! Shoes galore and my undecisiveness on which ones to choose from! On this day, I chose an awesome pair that of Mrs.Pacman wedges – check the rest of the pics of the event below …These events will happen monthly and I can’t wait to attend the next one in April!

**Note: If you are interested in attending any one of John Ashford’s Trunk Shows – please send me or John Ashford an email at: aliceincolorland15@gmail.com/johnashford1@gmail.com for more info on future events – don’t miss out**

THE RED EDITION!

I know Valentines Day is long gone and celebrated but it still merits a post that I know you probably will enjoy. Did you celebrate the day with your loved one? I truly hope you did because I think that this is the most beautiful holiday on the American calendar and it deserves a special place on my blog! Hey, people even get married on this day so why not, right?

Why is this day so anticipated with us Americans? Well, for starters, V-Day  is associated with cupid – you know that cute little guy shooting arrows with his bow, the color red, red roses in a vase with a cute bow, chocolates in cute heart shaped boxes, sexy greeting cards with spicy quotes and pure anticipated steamy love! Boy that was a lot of saucy thinking on my part LOL. Cheesy for some, delicious for others…your choice.

Let’s see what it is about this holiday that makes it so awesome ….shall we?

So after you’ve viewed the images above, don’t you think that Valentine’s day is worth all the hoopla after all? You’ve gotta admit it is one of the sexiest holidays ever and there are so many ways to celebrate it. You decide for yourself and thank me later…better yet go back and review the images above then come back and visit the blog again for more inspiration and sexiness…

Gotta run… Love Alice!

THE JOHN ASHFORD TRUNK SHOW

15443150_10154281733264075_8922832747485162394_o

A few days ago, I struck up a conversation with a friend and the subject of my fashion experiences came up. While I reminisced about my invites to various exclusive shows I mentioned that I had been invited to a Trunk Show that would be taking place in a few days. She didn’t know what a trunk show was so I proceeded to inform her of what it was about and how fun they are. She was very excited and wanted to know when the next one would be happening. I informed her that she would personally be invited to the next show and we would go together!

Now I am assuming that most of my followers who read my blog would know the fashion terminology but for those that don’t, I will tell you what a trunk show is and no it isn’t a show that sells or shows off trunks for you to buy LOL. Heres the definition of trunk show: a sales event for showing merchandise to staff and select customers. That, my readers was exactly what it was and more…

 Last week, Shoe designer John Ashford called me with some amazing news – he was having his private trunk show event in Clinton Hills Brooklyn, Ny and I had first dibs as blogger/photographer for that day! You can imagine how excited I was and I didn’t hesitate to accept his invitation. My excitement for the rest of the week till then as you can imagine was through the roof. Being a fashion blogger does have its perks and I’m so glad I could experience it and share this with my readers! Take peek at the pictures from the Authentic by John Ashford’s private trunk show sponsored by Barefoot Wines! Oh and I purchased a few pairs of amazing shoes of course!

WHAT’S UP IN MENSWEAR!

When I think of shoes my mind tends to gravitate towards women’s shoes. Not sure why that happens but its time for me to give some of the guys that are reading or browsing my blog some inspiration to put their shoes to good fashion use.

The ladies have it golden when it comes to shoes because there are after all, millions of possibilities such as styles, heel height, material, colors, and designers we could ever think of.  It almost seems like the shoes business is specifically made for us females – sorry fella’s, I sympathize with your dilemma. But don’t fret, I’m here to bring you a few shoe designs and a full outfit design to give you ideas on how to dress those shoes you’ve been wanting to buy or use and have never quite figured out how to dress it accordingly.

Fella’s this post is for you, enjoy…Love Alice!!

If you have sneakers in your closet, break those out! This is proof that you can wear a sport jacket with sneakers and jeans!

Here’s proof that you can wear shoes without socks….no shame in that game!

street_style_paris_fashion_week_men_fall_winter_2016__639822150_1200x1799

This guy has the right idea. Wear a suit and tie but do wear that long jacket to accentuate your shoe game…Fab!!

Menstylist-George-Angelis-Milan-Fashion-Week-Spring-Summer-2016-Street-Style-0582

This guy above is wearing light colors with tassel loafers and of course no socks…see what did I tell ya? Socks are sometimes not a requirement in the men’s department.

Street style - London Collections Men Autumn Winter 2016

Of course, wearing a full Clements and Church suit and tie, London Sock Company socks with a Bera Bera tie and Tassel Loafers does wonders for you also.

Love these double monk strap shoes!!

Last but not least, you can wear a vest over a polo with sockless shoes or you can roll up your pants at the bottom making a minimal cuff with a sport jacket to finally get the look you’ve been seeing in many men’s magazines. It’s all up to you – own it and feel as cool and comfortable wearing your look! I hope I’ve inspired you to look in your closet and break out the wardrobe you’ve been longing to show off –

Till next time..

DESIGNERS SPOTLIGHT: ANGEL SANCHEZ

Developing an appreciation for fashion at an early age, Angel Sanchez was surrounded by the reminders of the fashion industry in his mothers atelier. He practiced and studied architecture for many years but soon realized that fashion was his calling. Sanchez started his own fashion house rising to fame quickly in Latin America. Soon afterwards, his fashion house and company established roots in New York City.

Today he is well known for his bridal and evening wear collections that include a touch of drama with every piece. His amazing designs are also considered contemporary, architectural, and amazingly feminine. Let’s take a look at a few, shall we…

SP1639-FRONT

SP1633-FRONT

SP1638-FRONT

SP1637-FRONT

SP1634-FRONT

SP1641-FRONT

SP1640-FRONT

As you can see designer Angel Sanchez is all about color, different designs, and sophistication! You can clearly see hints of architecture in his collections which is truly amazing. You get the best of both worlds with Sanchez which is okay in my book. Can’t wait to see what designs he has for us in the future. This man is truly amazing and I appreciate his abilities to make us all look at his designs and want to try them all on. I know I would – what about you?

SUMMER NAILS

fdg-24

Once again its summer and I’m so inspired by everything I lay my eyes on! With that thought in mind – Its been about 3 years since I’ve been without nails and the more I see them in photos on instagram and other media outlets the more I miss them. I have a much awaited trip outside the US coming up soon and I’m not sure if I will be obtaining my nails again. It all depends on how I think about it as there is so much that you can’t do when you have the dang things on. On the flip side, they look so beautiful with all the bling and details though. How can you not LOL. The struggle is so real when it comes down to it. Can you relate?

I guess my decision all depends on if I would like to keep dishing the money for updating them or not. Seriously, being beautiful and keeping it up is really expensive in a way if you really take a look at it.

Anyways, the coming weeks will be a factor as to whether I take the plunge into nail beautification or not. Until then, I leave you with a snippet of what kinds of designs I am really contemplating for my new set of sexy nails if it does turn out that I do go all in.

Decision coming soon….

2b71db13ae0250a8d85c9043aa184fbe

Seriously ..is this not pretty?

2cdfa82203ef65368d434de1ed275883

I’m all about details and these would be the type of nails I would be looking at for me. I love the gold and stones.

41d7a6953c94c876138488b69569c5f2

I know this is on toes but it would look great just as well on hands too.

4635a63b00174b913bc6027f1f8aa4c2

Yessss, Fabulous!

6361b09107e4c179656542aa247d81cb

Isn’t this design so simple yet elegant?

6946107cb0e182b9c4fb205647596294

Once again, who’s to say that this design can’t be on your hands. Love the combination of colors!

a6c9bc99d333f5e8fa0984433023d7ba

Don’t like all the bling, heres a simple design thats also pretty

afaa4511e6531a67fad9d424b5d803da

This design is amazing

afeeb6eb36cc118943a9ea5a4e2fe1f3

Ever since I saw this color I just love it!

bbb1b45645303bd1cf51e9fcf17b3b88

Uhhhhh…need I say more, stunning!

ceaecd28789bc6baa1321425de9ba6bc

Flowers are always in style – this is a cute,fun, design!

a6c9bc99d333f5e8fa0984433023d7ba

I think these look great for any occasion!

cf55222f89fd71b98a43397928508c41

Claws for days and cool color combination!

With so many options and designs, how can I not fall in love with nails again. Frankly, I feel very bare without them and my natural nails look so god awful. As I think about it more and more I think I will be getting mine done soon. I just hope I don’t regret it money wise. Wish me luck everyone and pray that I make the best decision for myself.

Thanks for stopping by….

SUMMERS LOCKS OF LOVE

8e24aa5ef3259a188f6452b22a5b421b

Summer has once again returned but in my neck of the woods it hasn’t returned with a vengeance. Thank God for that because it can get brutal in a quick minute and my hair surely doesn’t do well in humidity. But oh well, let me just enjoy the summer and keep it positive, Yes…Yes!

As you might have guessed by now today’s subject of my choice is hair. To be more specific hairstyles and color. I love it when people decide to explore and be daring with their locks of love. It just reminds me that we can all be unique and beautiful no matter what race or nationality you may be. Now that its summer that means that hair stylists have their work cut out for them as weddings, birthdays, baptisms, graduations and just the typical family reunion are put together. Its one heck of a good reason to make up a good excuse to get a fresh color and a cut.

With that in mind, lets just take a look at a few that I’ve archived just for this post…which one’s your favorite?

6dc9c0b1728677735abb085d13a06053

What a beautiful hairstyle, would be amazing for that summer concert that you’ve been wanting to attend.

b053c80dcc28fba6e4dbe49458c68212

Love the cut and color of this one…looks so pretty and goddess like!

long-ombre-hairstyle-2016-450x600

Long with Ombre highlights…so pretty!

2014-fall-winter-2015-short-hairstyles

I’ve always loved the short, wavy, cuts like this one with the blonde streaks in between. This one looks so badass on this model.

Pink-Hairstyle-for-Short-Hair

For those of you that like color thats on the opposite side of the spectrum …check this one out! What do you think? Its definitely different.

63b950d503ab0dff3d1faef7dbeec0a7

Long layers with that beautiful color…yes, please! I would definitely rock this!

embedded_bob_with_side_swept_bangs

Bob haircut with side swept bangs…Gorgeous!

cute-beach-waves-hairstyle-with-blunt-bangs-for-long-light-blonde-hair-2016

Love this color and the cut of course but that color is so summer-ish!

hairstyles-for-black-women-trends-2014-2015-wallpaper

For my lovely black women, this ones for you and me of course, Oh so beautiful – I would rock this!

Awesome-Wavy-Pixie-Cut

Yes ladies, you can also rock a short pixie cut like no ones business, stunning!

Black-Girl-Short-Haircut

Short curls can be your thing if your not into the long hair trend…still rockin it!

67e55733cc8e480b0d310c1261e0ad59-400x600

You can also rock a natural high bun which to me looks so simple but elegant!

Amazing-Women-Black-Hair-Color-Cover-Picture-Wallpaper

She’s rocking the long, shiny, beautiful hair that makes anyone want to go to a salon and get theirs done the same way!

So what’s your take on summer hair? Should you cut it short, long, color it, or just rock it natural? I believe in doing as you see fit. If you wanna have it long and curly by all means go for it! If you wanna rock a short, shaved, bob thats all amazing too. The most important thing to remember is that whatever haircut, style, or color you pick it’s what makes you unique and beautiful. You rock whatever your heart desires and do it like its no ones business. Feel confident about how you look and smile at all times. Make yourself happy and look gorgeous while you’re feeling yourself.

I really hope this has inspired you to at least look into getting into a salon this summer and I would love to know which one of these styles gave you an epiphany for a cut, color, or style that you like.

Stay Beautiful My Lovely Ladies!

CLARRIA COSMETICS, YOU NEED TO TRY THIS!

A few weeks ago I got contacted by a new cosmetics company called Clarria Cosmetics and I was thrilled and excited beyond belief. I love makeup and if you give me makeup to try I am all over it. They were also offering a sponsorship/partnership and that made the email more interesting to me. They also offered to send me samples of their foundation so I could try it out. The box above was delivered and I was in love with the presentation of their product. The lettering and the black box were beautiful but more than that they were generous with their samples and I couldn’t wait to try and find my shade out of the 7 shades that they sent me. The little foundation vials that the product was packaged in were so adorable that I almost didn’t want to disturb them.

As I took each and every one out of the box, the hard part was trying to find my shade but I think that it wasn’t that hard once I saw that some were more darker or lighter than others. After much trial and error I found my shade and it was shade Lucky 005 although I also fell in love with Lucky 006 as it looked amazingly pretty with the completion of my blush and lipstick on so its a toss up between these two. Will have to check on the 006 shade with the help of natural light and see how it really looks on me but I love both shades either way. Check out the pics below of my before and after makeup transformation….
