It’s been a little over a week since the death of designer Alexander McQueen and while the world is still grief stricken, his stocks show an inverse reality. Like most artist, McQueen’s value has gone up. What might be a surprise is the amount. McQueen’s sales have gone up by 1,400%. Although the situation is incredibly sad, the world of fashion will always appreciate his artistic genius.
With all the trends coming off the runway this year, one of the hottest trends was the pop bun. Easy to do and very chic, this haute-do makes the list for some of the hottest designers for a trend that is a must. This stylish bun is sure to stick around longer than summer. We LOVE it!
Please don’t mind the mess in the background, I had a beyond hectic week and my guest bed has become my office:)

Nothing is sexier than red rougey lips, and designers clearly agree!

Makeup-artist, Stevie Huynh descibes the look as a “strong lip from a minimal standpoint”. This trend is sure to hit from runway to realway, take note diva!
Studies have shown, unlike any other nut, walnuts have a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E that all contribute to beautiful skin and hair. This is why many articles on hair loss have recommended eating walnuts to reverse the process–by maintaining healthy hair, preventing hair from falling and actually increasing hair growth. Furthermore, these power nuts are also rich in protein, fiber, vitamin B, and magnesium which all contribute to healthier blood and bones.
The FDA released the following statement in March 2004 to further emphasize the benefits of walnuts:
“Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 oz of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”
