Orange Aid

Well it's no surprise, after seeing all the bold juicy looks coming down the Spring runways, that Orange is the color of summer. It's everywhere from skirts and shoes, handbags and hats, necklaces and trench coats...ok you get the picture! This bright citrus-y shade, which always reminds me of one very bold coral-orange dress I paired with enormous pearls and proudly wore as a teenager to the fancy events in my life, also makes for some gorgeous punchy makeup colors. Think chic (and short) orange nails, shiny/matte lips, and warm sunshine blush. If you insist on trying orange eyeshadow (*Redheads: do not go anywhere near this trend), just like in those fashion magazine spreads where the models look like a tall frosty bottle of Orangina, then please do so in tiny light doses only, and then put on your sunglasses straight away. For the rest of your summer bright makeup needs, check out these gorgeous juicy shades from Sephora's latest:
ILLAMASQUA Nail Varnish in Gamma

NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Mediteranee
MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in #40
HOURGLASS Illume Creme-To-Powder Bronzer Duo

Canadian Luxury

The Spring season has just started blooming and it is undoubtedly as much about color, stripes, patterns, and boldness as it is about neutral tones, eco-friendly materials, and luxurious subtlety. It seems we have a patchwork of excited opposites in fashion right now, and Spring jewelry trends in particular are showing the widest range of spectrums, from sexy tassled earrings all the way to elegant metal accents. In fact metal jewelry is one of the hottest trends for Spring 2011 according to Birks, Canada's premier luxury jewelry brand synonymous with top notch quality fine jewelry since its establishment in 1879.

Often referred to as the Tiffany & Co. of Canada, Birks features some standout collections of sterling silver, yellow and white gold, including the elegantly intricate Birks Links Collection, and the delicious Birks Luna Collection of 22kt chocolate gold and hammered beads. Birks online jewelry is available throughout Canada, as well as their U.S. site.

Kate Spade Spring

Kate Spade online is one of those websites that makes me smile. It's where you can find pure color, fashion wit, and color of the month inspirations that make other brands seem kaleidoscopically challenged. Recently launched a new website and it's even more colorful than before! By the way at this point in my brand ambassadorship/long-time website adoration RedPoppy Loves Kate Spade should be their next ad campaign, don't you think??
