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 most coveted makeup collection by Charlotte Tilbury with Norman Parkinson

 

Makeup artist to the stars, and a star herself, Charlotte Tilbury has collaborated with legendary photographer Norman Parkinson in creating this summer’s most coveted collection of makeup. I have a collection of vintage fashion magazines from the 50’s and 60’s filled with iconic images from Norman Parkinson and the compacts and cosmetic pouches with his images are treasures in themselves.  There are two gorgeous collections, “Miss 1975” and “Miss Kensington”,   my personal favorite, which is described as “haughty but naughty girls of the swinging sixties”.  Well, really, who doesn’t want to look like a youthful, fresh, sensual beauty from the era made famous by the likes of Audrey Hepburn?  These particular colors can go from glowing to glamorous by adding more product, depending on the occasion.  I know I will not be able to resist these pretty compacts and long after they are used up, they will have a treasured spot on my vanity.

Take it outside

Running bare foot in the sand is one of the best leg toning exercises there is, and most of the models in Miami Beach take full advantage of the beach to run, play volleyball, swim, and let’s be honest – to ogle each other – which is all part of the fun.  Miami Beach has a steady stream of runners along the sand and the boardwalk every morning, with people exercising before heading off to work.  Others stretch it out in the downward dog position at sunrise along the shore.  Exercising outdoors gives your body a more balanced workout, connects you with the environment around you and disconnects you from the virtual world, not to mention artificial lighting and forced air in the gym. We surely get enough of that in the winter.  Even if all you do is go for a walk, get outdoors and feel the air on your limbs, quiet your mind and ready yourself for the day.  Make it a good one.

The top two makeup trends for summer:

 

This summer’s two best makeup looks are both classics with an updated twist.  Makeup artist Colleen Stone of Blush and Beyond created these two looks on our recent editorial beauty shoot with Elite model MacKenzie.

Colleen let MacKenzie’s freckles shine through and simply evened out her skin tone with a light BB cream, followed by a bright matte fuchsia lip using Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Never Say Never and black mascara for a look that really plays up her light eyes.

For the smokey-eye, Colleen used Charlotte Tilbury’s Rock’n’Kohl Eye Liner Pencil in Barbarella Brown that she blended and softened with a brush, and for the perfect nude lip, she used Bite Beauty’s Lip Pencil in Madeira.

Both looks are super easy and quick, and quite perfect for all your summer activities, whether you need to look polished and professional, fashionable and fresh, or sultry, so give yourself three makeup minutes and put your best face forward.
