The Perfect Pant by CHAIKEN!

When it comes to the perfect pant, it seems like the hunt never ceases. I’m always on the lookout for the best cut, style, and colors to compliment my body and wardrobe. Well, if you’re like me, then consider your search over! That’s right, behold the perfect pant, by CHAIKEN. Formerly Chaiken&Capone, CHAIKEN offers a full collection (including dresses, tops, suits, etc.), but after seeing a few key pieces at their showroom, I was particularly impressed with their selection of pants and shorts, available in a variety of colors, perfect for the spring. I especially love their “Megan” pant and “Monica” short for this upcoming season!



If you’re in the New York City area, you can check out CHAIKEN at these stores:

Two Blondes Boutique on the Upper East Side

Lester’s in Brooklyn

AND, Isa Lou and Fahrenheit 451 in The Hamptons



Good Read

Skinny Chicks Eat Real Food is currently sitting in my Amazon shopping cart- so although I haven’t read it I did see Christine on TV this morning and was so impressed by her I had to look the book up immediately. With lots of information on processed foods and eating “real” as well as recipes with photos- I am hooked, and I don’t even have the book in my hands yet. I think this article about her way of thinking really encouraged me to buy the book.

She also wrote, “Skinny Chicks Don’t Eat Salads- Stop Starving, Start Eating and Losing.” Which can be found here- another one of my biggest points that I feel like a lot of women don’t understand.

Starving yourself does not lead to weight loss- muscle loss and no energy, yes.. it will do that.

@BariBeauty – Pure Ice in Taupe Drawer Swatch



Helllo! I’m here with the second @BariBeauty post featuring another Pure Ice polish in Taupe Drawer. Don’t be fooled by the name. This is actually a mauve, pinkish, purpleish color. I probably would never have picked a color like this before because it seems like one of those shades that’s adorable in the bottle but horrid as a nail color BUT I was wrong. This is such a cute color and I’ve been getting a million and one compliments on it. This color though, unlike the previous one I tried, takes a bit of patience to put on.


Three thin coats later…

Yes, I painted three coats of this baby. I had actually painted my nails this same color three different times because I had meant to take photos earlier but failed because I’ve been so busy. The reason why it took three coats is because for some reason, this polish/color can get splotchy if you don’t let the coats completely dry and if you don’t paint each stroke carefully. Not to mention, three coats got me the perfect hue that I was looking for. Experiment for yourself… perhaps you’re better at painting your nails than I am. Perhaps (more than likely) you’re more patient with painting your nails than I am.

GREAT winter to spring shade. It’s pretty enough for the warm, sunny weather but not so bright that you can’t wear it at night or in gloomy, chilly weather. Purchase your bottle of Taupe Drawer here 🙂
