METALLICS FOR FALL

posted by Elshane on Nov 9 2017, under Fashion

It's pretty easy to spot one of fall's biggest fashion moments this season: SILVER METALLIC!

What's great about this trend is that if you invest properly, you can end up with a timeless, and potentially seasonless piece, just like this effortless dress that is intricately woven with blue and silver metallic. Worn in fall with boots, or spring with a sandal, this silver investment piece will last for seasons to come.

Can you just picture a sparkily silver metallic moment on the Kira Kira Instagram app?! {Who loves that filter as much as me?!}  Plus, silver is so easy to style-- simply pair the statement item back to basic black and white for a look so fresh and clean!

Take a look at some seasonless silver metallic items I recommend in my SHOP THE LOOK section below!

CASUAL AND COLORFUL

posted by Elshane on Oct 25 2017, under Baby/Motherhood

 

Sprinkle a little color into your everyday routine! That's easy for me to say-- try standing inside my closet to pull for something black. You may find a few pairs of black socks and... and... and.... ?!

A little color can go a long way. Take this playdate that Sunday and I had, for example. I think half the fun of our playdate was chasing around all of the colors of our very own rainbow. It's certainly enough to make someone smile.

Next time you're in a wardrobe rut, reach for color. Happiness approved!

STOP FOR RED

posted by Elshane on Oct 17 2017, under Fashion

You don't have to sell me twice when the hottest color of the season is also the brightest. I'll jump right on board, and dip in head to toe!

Red for fall is here and it's packing a powerful punch. The runways have shown it worn as coats, sweaters, pants-- both denim and trouser, and boots, boots, boots! 

The trick about red? It comes in two variations-- with a blue undertone, or with an orange undertone. Depending on your skin/hair tone, you may prefer one over the other. Me? I show no loyalty-- I'm team BOTH shades. (If you can tell, my sweater has an orange undertone, and my shorts blue).

I've included some of my favorite must-have RED pieces in my SHOP THE LOOK section below! Happy shopping!

BECOMING A COOL BLONDE

posted by Elshane on Oct 3 2017, under Beauty

I'm not a regular blonde, I'm a COOL BLONDE! (At least that's what my hair colorist tells me.)

And it's not because of my personality... I'm talking about my actual hair color! 

Being "cool blonde" means stripping your blonde locks of those brassy, bronzy, yellowy tones that often creep up on our from the bottle and natural blonde locks. Maintaining that "cool blonde" color-- think fresh, bright, shiny locks-- didn't come easy... until now!

I recently met my best friend... standing tall and purple from dpHUE... she's a shampoo and conditioner who is violet-tinted and gently cleanses my hair while neutralizing the warmth of my blonde color (plus she's paraben, sulfate, and phthalates free). Imagine if shampoo and conditioner had that "warm/cool" filter that we so often use on Instragram (hint: always choose cooler, never warmer!!!)... well, same rings true with our hair.

So now I ask... are YOU a cool blonde?

GIRL POWER

posted by Elshane on Sep 19 2017, under Baby/Motherhood

 

What an interesting moment we are at in history; a time where it's more important than ever to teach our children about gender, equality, acceptance, and love. A friend of mine started making these incredibly inspiring baby tanks that you can custom make for your little tot. 

Sunday wears hers loud and proud, and it reminds me of how loud and proud I am of my own Jewish roots...

Custom make your own tank through my SHOP THE LOOK link below! xo

PIMP MY RIDE

posted by Elshane on Aug 21 2017, under Baby/Motherhood

Sunday's moving on up in this world! Who knew being a baby was so luxurious? I sure didn't...

This Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Max Nomad Collection car seat is like sitting on a super cumulonimbus cloud-- you know, the floating cotton candy of the sky. Well imagine sitting in one in your car...

And... why don't they make cumulonimbus cloud car seats for adults? I could have used one all summer for all of the road trips I have been on.

Ok, enough of the dreamy fantasy. Here are the facts:  It’s the only premium convertible car seat that offers a first-class ride from 5-85 pounds and premium innovations that make it easier to get your child in and out of the seat. As a fully-functioning rear and forward-facing seat, both stages benefit from the safer side impact protection provided by Air Protect® technology which protects your child where it’s needed most, around the head. Plus, keeping the Pria 85 Max clean is simple. The seat pad unsnaps and removes easily over the frame. No need to remove the base, ever!

So, like I said... when will they start making one for adults!? ;)

REFRESHING YOUR DINNERWARE

posted by Elshane on Aug 16 2017, under Home Decor/Entertaining

 

I was on the hunt for a new set of casual, everyday dinnerware. I checked out the usual suspects... won't mention any names but their initials include PB, C&B, you know the drill... Everything was expensive and unimpressive.

So I sat tight for a bit, until I stumbled upon this gem of a company, called Cheeky. I first heard of them when they sent me a set of babyware-- BPA-free plates, bowls, sippy cups. I was impressed by the quality, the design, and the cute prints. They still remain front and center in my baby feeding line-up.

Then I saw that they make porcelain dinnerware... and for every plate purchased, the company donates a meal to someone in need in the U.S.. I was sold. Great quality, great prices, great prints, great cause. Need any other reason to look any further? I would hope not!

BABY'S NEWEST PLAY ROOM

posted by Elshane on Aug 3 2017, under Baby/Motherhood

When us mommy's look for toys for baby, we look to hit all the senses, right? A fuzzy stuffed animal that moves his head and giggles, a wooden train that pieces together with a choo choo on top. 

Well, what if your best toys were hiding in your very own closet? Sometimes when Sunday and I are getting stir crazy and we don't want to/can't go outside, we lock ourselves in my closet and get WILD.

I show her the fuzzy fur coats, the spiky sequin tops, and all of the colors of the rainbow. She opens and closes my accessories drawers, she takes clothes off the hangers, and she "cleans up" when we're done. (You know... putting all of the clothes in one pile at the corner of the closet!)

Point is, it's a great way to spend 20 minutes of time. Plus, it's a great way to revive that silver sequin dress that you haven't worn in years... ;)
