Guess Who Ruined Lives and Fashion Single-handedly?


Georgina Chapman and Harvey Weinstein

It’s a sad day in the fashion world as we learned that Marchesa has canceled its New York Fashion week show that was on the calendar for February 14th. Marchesa has opted to present a digital presentation for the many admirers who were excited to see the fashion brand presentation live. I am sure that many unseen factors played a major role in this decisions and just maybe it was “way to soon” for the comeback. However, as I plan my trip to NYFW next week, I will be sure to add a reminder to take a look at the digital presentation…….will you?

I personally will be purchasing this gift for myself since I occasionally suffer from migraines. The weather here in Atlanta can be tricky and our seasonal changes can be hard on people with sinuses so this gift will ease that discomfort as well.

This Herbal Sinus & Migraine Cap gift retails for $40.00 on

You can now enjoy your favorite scented oils on vacation or in the office. It diffuses scented oil without the use of heat by using ultrasonic vapor technology-no heat or flames. This gift retails for $49.99 on




And finally rounding off this list will be a great gift for the wine lover in your life. I found myself at a few summer outdoor concerts this year and of course you can’t have a picnic without wine right?

Balmain x H&M: Fashionista Shopping Frenzy!!

” Do you speak Balmain?”

Hello Friends,


So show of hands how many of us were able to snatch a piece of the BalmainxH&M collection last week? If you were able to grab (literally) a piece of this collection then congratulations are in order. Just let me start off by saying that I have never and I mean never seen anything remotely even close to the stampede that I saw when the doors opened at H&M last week. I have never participated in Black Friday and if what I saw last week was an indication of what consumers go through for Black Friday then you can count me out.


Balmain Quote

I will say that I was lucky enough to purchase a piece from the collection that I really wanted and it felt like I had won the lottery I tell you! I was able to get the yellow braided embroidery vest which retailed for $129.00 but I see this same item is selling on EBay for $350.00. I did not partake in the fist fight of trying to get this item instore but yet opted to purchase my item online using my mobile device. I had a team of dedicated friends and coworkers that were trying online as well for me so you can say that this was a well thought out plan to score that vest.



In the end I was able to purchase the item and was anticipating the arrival of my sought out piece of the Balmain x H&M collection and I finally have it. The quality of this item was utterly amazing, the fabric is well made and worth every dime that I spent. I also received a garment bag to store my coveted piece from this collaboration. It was a thrill ride to say the least and has given me the courage to maybe go for something on Black Friday maybe? Nah…I will leave well enough alone that was way too stressful for my liking. Well let me take that back because if H&M collaborate with Chanel then I will start this process all over again!! If you did partake in purchasing your Balmain instore PLEASE share your experience with me below in a comment.
