Get Ready For The Cold Season With Cozy & Chic Designs By @HelenKaminskiUS

If there’s one label I’d love to deck out my accessories wardrobe with for the winter, it’s Helen Kaminski. This Aussie-based company has been designing chic headwear for over 25 years and they get it right every. single. time. Celebs such as Nicole Kidman, Sandra Bullock and Blake Lively have been spotted wearing their designs.

You can grab their sassy designs from places like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and specialty hat stores, but they’re online store at HelenKaminski.com is so convenient and easy to use, you can grab all their designs from the comfort of your lounge.

If you’re planning for the gift-giving season or just want to spoil yourself with a one-of-a-kind design, here are a few get-me-noticed picks (that are also on my wish list!):

Go with plush hats for a simple and chic addition to that winter outfit. And try some color this season — electric blues and gorgeous greens are so in!

If you’re more of a ski bunny, check out Helen Kaminski’s range of hand knit cashmere goodies:

Or go with a little more detail and soak up with compliments with crocheted winter headband cozies, beanies and berets (looove):

And since your handbag collection changes with the seasons, Helen Kaminski also has a fab range of bags that are designed with special care.

Pick up crocheted bags embellished with pompoms. I’m loving the bright yellow designs:

I’m also a huge fan of this season’s pastiche felt collection. The colors, the textures, the shapely designs:

In the mind of a dog with Throw the Damn Ball, from @PlumeBooks

Surely, dogs have thoughts. And what a range of thoughts they have.

From the philosophical:

 Do I look like I’ve been caught
Deep in thought and with emotion fraught?
As if some distant land I’ve charted?
Don’t be fooled. It’s just that I’ve farted.

To the intense:

Rhyming is for cats,
with their tiny, tiny lips
and pretentious little way of nibbling their food.
When you drop them,
they always land on their feet,
which is tedious, like knowing that at the end of the line
you’re always going to get a rhyme.
You want your poem to rhyme?
I have one word for you:
Pussy.

Back to the philosophical:

From up here I can see
All the places I like to pee.
Thank you.

Lolita Lempicka Elle L’Aime Giveaway @PLolitaLempicka

Starting this think about Christmas shopping?  The best gift you can get is a fragrance! Even though perfumes are so personal, every girl would love to have an option. This totally wearable Lolita fragrance is on the top of my list for gift giving this year and may cause a flurry of warm fuzzy memories all winter long!  I picture this scent for a girl who prefers pistachio over vanilla, creamy nudes over hot pink and chiffon over leather. Is that you?

Lolita Lempicka’s Elle L’Aime, meaning “she loves”, will let you discover what that is. Unlock the mystery within and enter a world that reveals the complexities and intricacies of the way women love. When you know Elle L’aime, you know what she loves. At once you understand what is precious, sensual and absolutely decadent. IMG_4095

Check out Lolita’s newest scent that is perfect for the holiday season!  The bottle is absolutely radiant and looks like art. The beautiful soft gold matches the warm and floral notes. It reminds me of a creme brûlée.

The retail price for this is $100 and is now available at Neiman Marcus.  But you can win it here for FREE!

Elle L’aime IS the scent of woman … her laugh, her zest for life, her desire, her soul. And like this very special woman, Elle L’aime too demands to be noticed; drawing you in, inviting a loved one to come close and be captivated.
IMG_4097This sophisticated, feminine, radiant floral scent has dazzling top notes of Bergamot, Neroli, and Lime, melded with an exotic, decadent Coco Essence heart, and warmed to a sumptuous close with luscious Vanilla and Sandalwood.

To experience Elle L’aime is to understand love’s mystery.

@LeChateauStyle Spring/Summer 2014 Preview #walkinclost

LE CHATEAU SPRING SUMMER 2014

The weather has been yucky these past couple of weeks but that wasn’t enough to stop us from passing by the Thompson Residences to check out the new Le Chateau Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Pretty clothes, pretty shoes, tasty wine and cupcakes, are exactly what I needed after a long, cold and rainy day.

LE CHATEAU SPRING SUMMER 2014

We walked into a gorgeous suite and were greeted with a cocktail before being led into the first room, which was the ladies bedroom; where some of the ladies were getting quick manis, as well as perusing the new collection in the decked out walk-in closet! Once we got the goods on the womenswear, we headed over to the men’s room to check out what was in that walk-in closet…the woman’s walk-in closet was way more fun…naturally lol
