Slide into Spring!

Slide into Spring!

Slides are SO HOT this Spring and I can understand why. They’re comfortable and fit most feet…wide, medium or narrow, they allow room for your toes to move! They’re a cute and trendy way to accessorize by adding a pop of color or print to a neutral outfit. Alternatively, a neutral slide can tone down a patterned outfit.

Here’s a roundup of my favorite slides for Spring! Continue reading “Slide into Spring!”

What to Pack for a Warm Weather Getaway

What to Pack for a Warm Weather Getaway

In Buffalo, NY, our schools have a Winter Break and a Spring Break. With Winter Break just a few weeks away, I thought I’d put together a guide of recommended things you may need to purchase and pack for a warm weather getaway vacation.

A signature scent is such a fun thing to have. It’s a reflection of you, your personality and it’s what people will remember you by. Scents trigger powerful memories so having a good one is important! A small dose of a scent can bring your mind back to a special memory, a place, a season, a person, a flower, a tree, a sunrise on a warm day, a day at the beach or a romantic night in the city. When you choose a fragrance, you’re choosing much more than a scent. You’re choosing a memory for yourself and others.

I recently asked my readers on Facebook what their favorite fragrance to wear was and what did they like about it? I thought it would be a fun way for Em & Gracie readers to learn more about other fragrances and why people liked them in case they were looking for something new to wear. When reading the responses below, let’s not forget that fragrances are a matter of preference and they don’t smell the same on everyone. Continue reading “Favorite Fragrances for Women 2018”
