Cole Haan’s “Emma” satchel – a classic for fall

 

I recently took my new Cole Haan “Emma” satchel out for brunch  – “walking the bag”,  as my husband so beautifully put it.   Top-handle handbags are right on trend for fall, and this deep orange-red color works as a neutral, working with everything from casual jeans outfits to office attire.  The pebbled leather is sturdy, and there is an optional shoulder strap so you can wear it as a cross-body purse as well.  I am in love with this jolt of happy color and I plan to wear it right through fall.

Summer’s prettiest hair

 

Soft, feminine hair is perfect for summer, showing off shoulders and neck, and keeping you cool at the same time.  Colleen Stone, hair and makeup artist for Blush and Beyond created these styles in our recent beauty editorial.  We began with a neat french braid that left our model’s hair with waves when we took it down.  After removing the french braid, she held the waves with just a bit of hair spray to help maintain their shape.  Next she gave our model a faux bob by pinning the hair up and underneath to create the illusion of shorter hair, showing off the model’s heart-shaped face.  Finally, she put the hair in a loose bun, pulling little pieces out to give it a soft, unfussy romantic look.  These looks go from office, to brunch, to evenings out.  Let your girly side free and try some of these looks for yourself.   The best part is, these looks are not meant to be perfect, only perfectly undone.

Body buffed and pedi-ready with Spongellé

Skin that glows is essential for summer, and getting that glow can actually be a treat.  I will be  pampering myself with the new and innovative Spongellé Body Wash Infused Buffers for both the body and feet, which are infused with gentle cleansers and moisturizers to exfoliate and refresh your skin in the shower.  The luxurious, adorable body buffer is shaped like a daisy complete with ribbon on top to hang it in your shower.  I was offered one scented with exotic extracts of papaya and yuzu which is fresh, sweet and completely addicting, along with the beach grass-scented pedi-buffer that really gets the job done, leaving the feet pedi-ready.

I can’t wait to try the rest of the scents which include Ginger Bergamot, Bulgarian Rose, French Lavender and Coconut Verbena, and the Mandarin Mint pedi-buffer.  What a great treat for summer!
