MICHAEL KORS! TIME PIECES!

Ever since wearing watches has become apart of my work uniform, I have become addicted to them! However, it’s hard for me to find one I like because they either look old & dated, cheap or all of the above! BUT recently while shopping I spotted this watch dubbed the “Horn Jet Set” by Michael Kors. It looks young & fresh, I love the neutral marble acrylic band & It’s GORGEOUS! It’s so me & I MUST HAVE IT!

Aside from this 1, Michael Kors has a really nice collection of watches. All look like quality pieces @ reasonable prices ranging between $195- $225! Check some of them out below & let me know what you think!






This last 1 is actually a men’s watch, BUT I saw a young lady with it on & thought it was real cute on her

MY FAVORITE FALL TRENDS!

1.LEOPARD PRINT BOOTIES!

Leopard has always been my favorite color! It’s such a great neutral that can add a lil sass 2 any outfit. & this fall leopard print booties r all the rage! & I personally LOVE them! I remember last year Stuart Weitzman tried it out with his full leopard print OTK boot. & it didn’t go over 2 well except 4 w/ Wendy Williams. the loud print PLUS the OTK trend was too much! However, the leopard print bootie is just enuf umph 2 give u a kool girl look!

2. CALF HAIR SHOES!

Another trend I’ve seen for fall are the calf hair shoes! I LOVE this trend bcuz its so not ur average joe look. When I envision sum1 wearing these especially a full on calf hair print bootie like the Givenchy’s pictured above, I definitely envision a Paris fashion week street style photo shot by Tommy Ton. Very cool, very NOW! If the bootie is 2 much, a subtle heel such as the Elizabeth & James pump is a little less in ur face but still very on trend!

3. BLOUSE!

THANK GOD! Finally I can call my usual go 2 outfit of pairing everything with a nice flowly blouse “on trend”! The long sleeve silk flowy tops are a must have for this fall! This season the big thing is to pair the top with wool wide leg trousers for a very 70’s vibe such as this Chloe’ runway look!

4. THE CAMEL COAT!

The camel coat was very trendy last season & continues 2 be a staple for this fall!

5. CAPES!

Capes are also on trend for the fall! & labels such as Karen Millen & Gryphon have some really cute 1s to carry on the runway look!

………..Of course these are just a few of the many trends I look forward to for the fall! Stay tuned for many more 2 come!

WOMEN WHO TRUST MORE HAVE FEWER LIARS IN THEIR LIFE…WHO KNEW?

Well @ least that’s what research from the University of Toronto has found. They say that ppl who r mre trusting of others are better at detecting liars! So basically the ppl that u mite “think” are gullible aren’t such doormats after all. Based on the results, good natured ppl usually do better @ surrounding themselves with rock solid ppl, because they go with their gut. So basically while u’re constantly watching & waiting for others 2 betray u & thinking us sweethearts r fools, just keep in mind that our trusting ways actually mk us better @ distinguishing lies from the truth! It also makes us better @ hiring,recruitment, picking friends & worthy business partners.

but thy left out nething abt being better @ picking a mate. We all know how that can be lol….. interesting read! WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?
