5 Trends for Spring I'm Lovin'

One again we get to release out inner cave woman (in a chic way). This time around, wear your colored animal print with metallics and luxe fabrics such as silks, suede and organic cotton. 
Hello 90's! The era of Nirvana is back and I'm loving it! Wear floral print mixed with plaid. A little baggy over sized sweater, lots of layering and round sunnies to top it off.
Who said Palm Springs is for elderly and retirement homes? Love the vibrant colors and prints. 

A little darker feel to the typical hippy boho, yet more chic. Think; Leathers, Lace and Fringe and complete the look with a bucket bag.
Remember Twiggy? Now think a modern her! bright colors, boxy cuts and a-line clothes.
Okay spring, we are ready for you! come out, come out wherever you are!

Spring Beauty Trend: Neon Lips

 This season hot pinks and corals are hot! Think fluorescent or even neon color. It makes me happy, a bright pout like that. Above beauty images from Spring/Summer2013 runway shows; (left to right)  Dries van Noted, Missoni and Giles 
Here's my secret :)  
Above; A bright coral color (YSL - Extreme Coral) with a neon pigment dabbed on top (MAC - Red Electric). The pigment will help the lipstick set, intensify the brightness and stays on (almost) all day! 
Below; Neon Pink Lipstick from the market (Janet Luxury Lipsticks find it on EBay "here")

Breakfast at Fayme's for Mayiu

  I got invited to check out Mayiu's collection of bags and belts, each piece is unique and really a little piece of art. Designer Marianne has a gift for pairing colors together, once was the queen of mosaic, creating wonderful pieces of art with the most beautiful color combinations. After years of intense mosaic work, she moved onto creating finer, more delicate pieces of art; Mayiu Bags and Belts.
Mayiu, meaning "mother and daughter" in my native language in CuraƧao, this mother, daughter duo is a ever creative pair.
The bags are made with delicate embellishments and luxe fabrics, mainly silks.
Try to get your hands on one of these unique hand-made pieces of art.
To keep up with Mayiu's latest collections follow her (here) on Facebook!

Wear your Mayiu bag many ways;
For cocktail hour with a little print dress.
Wear it casual with monotone colors; denim, navy and a white button down.
Or on trend; color blocking primary colors and toss in a print.
