NARS Cosmetics has just released a cosmetic line in honor of Andy Warhol and they are celebrating his life in a beautiful way! I am not much for color when it comes to make-up. However, I think everyone knows that Mr. Warhol’s art left the world a little more colorful so I found this collection to be really fun and appropriate. The cosmetics collection is available for purchase at Sephora as well as on the NARS Comestics website. Here are my favorite picks from the limited-edition collection: Images are via. & Advertisements

Fashion Chalet

Posted on January 19, 2010

Erika is the writer behind the personal style and fashion blog known to readers around the world as Fashion Chalet. Having graduated with a Bachelor degree in multimedia journalism, it is no wonder that Fashion Chalet has been featured in ELLE (es), Nylon Magazine and many other respected fashion websites. I stumbled upon Erika’s blog and I immediately felt the urge to talk to her about her style, inspiration and life. Take a look:  Your blog, Fashion Chalet, was created in 2008. What made you decide to create a blog? I always had this urge to share images of what I was wearing or what inspired me at that particular moment. One day, after having tried all the other options: myspace, flickr, fashion forums- I…

I am traveling to Okemo Mountain (which is located in Ludlow, Vermont) for the week to snowboard. I will therefore not be blogging due to the fact that my home there does not have internet or cell phone service – welcome to Vermont! However, once I return I have exciting content. This is just a small preview: Sources:, audreycantwell,com,, google images.

We are eight days in to the new year. Am I the only one who feels like it has been 8 weeks already? 2009 was quite the year. Lady Gaga was everywhere, President Obama was inaugurated, Michael Jackson and Ted Kennedy both passed away along with the beautiful Farrah Fawcett as well as several other celebrities. Glenn Beck went crazy along with Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly while Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow remained perfectly sane. Then there was the attempted terrorist attack in late December… And these are just the things I remember from the top of my head! What was significant in your 2009? Well, personally, I am happy to leave 2009 behind. It was an excellent year but I just love…

The Size Issue

Posted on January 5, 2010

Both Glamour Magazine and V Magazine have attempted to address the issue of plus-size models in fashion. In recent months, both magazines have featured plus-size models with that intent. Glamour Magazine was the first to do it with model Lizzie Miller and now V Magazine has created an editorial called “The Size Issue”. However, while I absolutely applaud their work I feel as though their attempt is a little odd. I feel that their attempts are a little odd because in the editorials it seems to me that the models either has to be very thin or very large. There’s no in between. None of the models are a happy medium. I will not complain though because it is so refreshing to see diversity…

5 Questions for Ida Pernilla Daugaard

Posted on December 2, 2009

Ida (the model featured above) litterally left me stunned following my viewing part of her portfolio. What a stunning, versatile young woman. I absolutely had to contact her because there were five simple questions in which my mind absolutely needed answered by her. After all, how many models get asked questions? No one really cares what a model likes or what they want because it is not part of their job description. They’re in a sense just beautiful, fragile objects and so I sensed that Ida was both surprised and delighted when I asked her if I could ask her questions. She was very shy about her english language and she made sure that I was aware that english was not her native toungue. I found her quite charming and I…
