Beauty Tips by Audrey Hepburn to teach your daughter:

As a mother, I have always prayed for the grace to raise my children to be healthy, wise,  au6    and kind. As my daughter grew up, I also couldn’t resist the fun of dressing her up cute and teaching her all the girly tricks I know.

The very best beauty tips I found to date are below. They come from one of the most CLASSY, captivating, and absolutely beautiful style icons of our lifetime. Like her, they are timeless.

Beauty Tips by Audrey Hepburn:

“For attractive lips: Speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes: Seek out the good in people.audrey3

For a slim figure: Share your food with the hungry .

For beautiful hair: Let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise: Walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, You will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; One for helping yourself, and the other for helping others”

Photo Shoot with Brooke!

We had the joy meeting our little model Brooke last week ~ and trying to keep up with her energy!  The day was overcast; not ideal for a photo shoot …. but once she sprang into action she brought her own sunshine with her! Here are a few moments I thought I’d share (wearing pieces from ZaZa Couture’s Fall 2011 collection):

A few trends for Spring!

Spring 2011 is just around the corner and we thought we’d share a couple the trends we know are coming!

Color combinations you can expect to see include: pink & gray; navy blue and white (or off white), varying shades of green & brown, chartreuse, teal & aqua blue, and of course… pink .  Polka dots and Asian themes continue to be in vogue, and watch for ALL THINGS NAUTICAL to  be popular with the trendy crowd!

The most prominent trend, however, continues to be retro … and we couldn’t be happier!  Storybook themes and vintage artwork, paired with traditional, simple styling are only becoming more and more popular!

Some brands to watch?

Mim Pi , Catimini, Luna Luna Copenhagen, Lipstik Girls, and Isobella & Chloe are a few of our recommendations.  Of course Lemon Loves Lime is always popular for setting trends and whimsy of her own ~ and we have that too!

Pictured above is retro florette dress in pink and gray available from Lipstik Girls Spring 2011 Collection (available for pre-order here).

We think its going to be a fun season to be fashionable!
