On The Road This Summer…
The “Pitbull In A Skirt” (a.k.a. rap/hip hop diva Eve) and the “Hollaback Girl” (fans know her as music star Gwen Stefani) are hitting the road on Stefani’s “This Is What The Truth Feels Like” 2016 tour. The tour hits dozens of cities throughout North America including Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Tampa and Vancouver this summer with dates set in Los Angeles and San Francisco this Fall. Eve joins Gwen Stefani as a special guest on the tour—quite fitting since the two collaborated on the 2001 hit “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” (from Eve’s Scorpion CD) and on the 2004 chart topper “Rich Girl” (from Stefani’s album Love. Angel. Music. Baby.).

Is It Fall Yet?
We’ve waited for summer and now that it’s in full swing, we can’t help but look forward to…Autumn. With the Fall/Winter 16/17 fashions making their debuts on the runways, we can’t help but adore some of the yummy new looks for cooler weather wear. One stunning ensemble that caught our eye: a metallic gray leather strapless dress paired with a swingy “cape” by popular German designer Guido Maria Kretschmer. Notice how voluminous curls kissed with deep, wine color works beautifully with this chic ensemble. We adore how the luxurious mane hue is spotlighted against the neutral shades of the ensemble. Makes us want to go shopping—and make that hair color appointment—just in time for Fall.
