EMOJIS speak louder than words

We have seen it & I am sure we all have the same feeling too! But now, the 'emoji trend' seems to be simply unstoppable!!

From clothing to accessories, emoji's have become a fashion trend & fashionistas world over are either wearing them or sporting them as an accessory.

Some fashion brands like Versace, took the emoji symbol & created their very own fashion emoji's!

When it comes to phone texting; you rarely send a text without an emoji or sometimes maybe even two or three!

My niece of 12, sends me an entire run down of her week at school & play in the most amazing sense of emotions…yes, and I mean an emoji! From her breakfast to the bus ride to her school teacher & playtime with friends; to studying different subjects, her music class& what she likes best & worst of all… her story is simply fabulously EMOJIFIED!! I must admit I have to call her the 'Emoji Princess' or 'emoji ambassador'.


Fast becoming the communication tool amongst young & old, entrepreneurs & corporates, emoji's are the world's new 'go too' tool for emotions leaving behind the actual dictionary!

So have you been 'emoji-fied yet?!?


God Bless!

Pantone unveiled its zesty yellow-green shade in the hope to refresh, reinvent & reinvigorate the spirit of the new year! It's called GREENERY and clearly, it is FRESH & VIVACIOUS.

This color looks great on most color complexions & it's a great color to mix & match. Color blocking is easy while choosing shades of green & you can team it with yellow, blue, khaki or even a subtle cream & white. But always remember to keep it simple. It's also easy to wear a monochromatic color scheme when it comes too green. So a fresh crisp light green top teamed with a deep dark green skirt will be a fresh take to the office & off set it with either azure blue pumps or wedges or go for a simple beige.

So, think fresh, think new & enjoy all things clean & green with Pantone's new color of 2017!



Ruffles act as their own accessory. It's the season of romance & there is no better style & feeling than the soft flowing fabric cascading down your shoulder or around your neck. You can wear this feminine detail spiraling from your hip or create a dramatic architectural ruffle for that stunning Valentine evening. Since ruffles need no accessories or add-ons, wear your hair into a sleek do & dress it up with pumps & sandals in complementary colors.

Clearly one of the biggest trends for 2017, go ahead & make your day or evening even more sensuous & feel fantastic with or without a valentine!
