“Coach Pups” Campaign Unveiled

coachpups1Coach’s new campaign features canine stars in a series of portraits photographed by Steven Meisel. It launches this month with Miss Asia Kinney, the adorable four-legged companion of Lady Gaga.

The campaign celebrates the dogs in our lives and captures the pups’ unique personalities as they “model” Coach’s Fall 2015 star bags. Additional PUPS staring in the campaign will be revealed shortly. Miss Asia Kinney, Lady Gaga’s now famous French Bulldog has amassed a substantial social media following in only a few short weeks. The Coach bags she elegantly models in the campaign are the Edie and the Rucksack.

Art directed by Fabien Baron and styled by Karl Templer, COACH PUPS will appear in print, online and on outdoor media globally starting in July.

Lady Gaga commented: “I am so proud of Miss Asia! She’s a natural in front of the camera, and we’re both so excited that the iconic Steven Meisel shot her for Coach’s pup campaign! I really love getting to watch my best friend be a star.”

Stuart Vevers, Creative Director at Coach comments, “’I’ve never had so much fun on a shoot. The combination of Mr. Meisel and the pups was an extraordinary, surreal, special moment. We wanted to create playful images that make you smile. We were inspired by some images from the Coach archive, which featured Eddie—the dog that starred in the TV series Frasier—to create something joyful, with humor and character. That’s a spirit that’s uniquely at the heart of Coach.”

This new initiative will also introduce the social campaign #coachpups, including a range of online activities for fellow dog fanciers, opportunities for Instameets, special talks and other events hosted by the great and the good of the canine world. This will also mark the debut of the Coach Snapchat account.

Coach has made a donation to Chicago French Bulldog Rescue (frenchieporvous.org) on behalf of Miss Asia Kinney and her devoted owner.

Check it Out: Tabatha Coffey Launches Beauty Website!

industrie

In an effort to bring salon professionals and their clients closer together, the no-nonsense television personality, author and celebrity hairdresser Tabatha Coffey has launched Industrie, a beauty website unlike any other.
“Industrie focuses on providing real solutions, real education and real beauty to real people,” says Coffey. “Not only will we be tackling common issues and offering individualized solutions for both beauty professionals and their clients, but the aim of Industrie is to help salon professionals grow their skill set and business and give beauty-loving consumers the skills, knowledge and resources to keep their look going well after they leave the salon.”
The site will consist of various how-tos, interviews, opinions, quizzes and surveys, and it will also reward members with a unique points system for sharing site content on social media. These points can then be redeemed for beauty products. Industrie will also highlight the creative correlation between beauty and the arts and provide various editorial features showcasing this harmonious relationship.
“Industrie was created to educate, inspire, and enlighten,” adds Coffey. “I want to give salon professionals and their clients the opportunity to find their own unique style. Whether you’re an urban Millennial or a suburban socialite, Industrie will have something for everyone. There’s no limit, no boundaries, and no barriers to overcome. We’ve removed the filler and we’re giving people exactly what they want, and need.”

For a Good Cause

On June 16, 2015 Soul Carrier, the unique handbag line with a powerful mission, launched a Kickstarter campaign to debut their third collection of gorgeous handbags called the Conscious Intentions Collection.  A portion of all proceeds goes towards benefitting The Crisis Nursery, a children’s shelter in downtown Phoenix, AZ.

Spring is Coming!!

I am so relieved that spring is FINALLY right around the corner! The past few days have been a tad bit warmer and I am loving every second. We do already have a possibility of flurries again where I live on Friday BUT I’m going to ignore that!

So what does Spring mean for you?? For me, it means iced coffee, bright manicures, lighter jackets, lighter hair color (!), sandals, (which mean pedicures), night drives, windows down, ice cream, walks in the park, … and that IT’S TIME TO GET TAN! 🙂

I will admit I am a fan of the tanning bed. This is my absolute favorite time of year to hop in the tanning bed, get some rays and pump myself up for the warmer weather that’s about to come! However, I want to recommend a sunless product to use as either to compliment your fake tan or to give you a completely sunless tan. And that is Novell’s new “Dancing with the Stars” line. Novell, a leader in the self-tanning industry, teamed up with ABC to launch this line and it’s pretty great.

Skin perfectorI tried the ENDURANCE color boosting skin perfector, and I really like it. It makes your skin feel smooth while evening out your skin tone. In the past, I have tried sunless tanning lotions that made me look super orange so I took it easy on this one. But after just one use I noticed it gave me a glow and made me look a shade darker. I love using this while going to the tanning salon because it really does deepen your tan, especially while starting up the tanning bed process again. I can really see myself using this lotion before an event, to maintain and deepen my tan. Plus, this lotion actually does a lot of different things for your skin. It’s a color corrector, which I personally always need on my face to help even out my skin tone, it’s moisturizing, and as I’ve already implied, it extends your color while tanning/sunless tanning.

Starting now, getting a “ten” from at-home self-tanning is as simple as picking the right partner – Dancing with the Stars Sunless Collection by Norvell. That’s because Norvell has done all the fancy footwork for consumers, putting its extensive knowledge of the art and science of sunless tanning into each and every bottle. “‘There’s no doubt that “Dancing with the Stars” has been a driving force in the rapid growth of sunless tanning, one of the beauty industry’s hottest categories, ” said Rick Norvell, president of the family owned, Tennessee-based company that has led the U.S. professional spray tanning industry for more than 20 years. “We’re excited to partner with the show to help consumers get that healthy, bronzed just-off-the-beach look they love… at home.”

Invaluable Style Challenge

Invaluable Ring

 

I’m so excited to share this look I created, inspired by a diamond ring from Invaluable.com! I chose to style the ring pictured on the right because I think it really represents my personal style. This ring is simple, elegant, and sophisticated which I love. I almost always wear gold jewelry and I love the light blue color of the gem. Below is my style board that I created on Polyvore.

I want to thank invaluable.com for inviting me to participate in this style challenge; I had so much fun creating a look around the ring I chose!
Hope you enjoy my look 🙂

OCTOBER STYLE CHALLENGE: YOUR BEST BRIDESMAID LOOK

I was asked by Weddington Way to participate in their October Style Challenge, which is to imagine yourself as a maid of honor helping the bride style her wedding party and come up with your best bridesmaid look that you would recommend to her. Ironically, I will ACTUALLY be a maid of honor in one year! My older sister is getting married in October 2015!! So I was super excited that I was asked to participate in this challenge since it’s really not such a hypothetical situation for me!

I decided to go with my sister’s classic color theme of navy, light pink and nudes. I chose to style Weddington Way’s Donna Morgan Jessie Bridesmaid Dress in Midnight blue. I love this dress because it is a very classic style that will look good on any body type. My two other sisters will also be bridesmaids and we all have very different figures, so this dress would be perfect. My sister is getting married at the Sterling Mansion so I chose all classic and elegant pieces to style this dress.

Find Weddington Way’s many different dresses here.

I had so much fun creating my post for this challenge. I want to thank Weddington Way for inviting me to participate!
