It’s a Lifestyle…

That it is, and one I suggest you dabble in.  Designer and Co-Founder of  C&C California  Cheyann Benedict embarked on a journey of rediscovering after three years of building the successful brand and it being acquired by Liz Claiborne in 2005. Upon deciding to create a new brand that not only carried her name but was inspired through her travels,experiences and yet true to her vision, Cheyann launched her new line. 

The collection features dresses, tops, bottoms, and sweaters.We really love the easiness to dress this collection up or down. Versatility is always welcomed.  All I will say is… Vega, Teenager, Windflower,  The Crop Tee, ( we know about her tees) and The Tuk Tuk. Oh, what am I talking about? Just our top five from the collection!

P.S. Did we mention the curated vintage? Well it’s just another reason to pop in to her boutique.

The Trench.

The Trench coat makes a remarkable statement and is obviously a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. This item is probably the most versatile item in outerwear, and with the vast styles and colors of the trench coat there is definitely no excuse for anybody not to have one. Here are some of my favorites 🙂

My Top 10 Summer Beauty ESSENTIALS

During the summer our skin requires different care than it does in the winter. This could include a different skin regimen altogether, or maybe adding some things like sun block or self-tanners. Even though we always want to look our best, everyone likes to take up a couple notches when the warm weather arrives. I have compiled a list of my favorite beauty products I use during summer. What do you use? I’d love to hear about the products you swear by. I love trying new products!

Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser

HydraQuench Cream Normal to Dry SPF 15

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes (I use All Year)

La Prairie Luxe Lip Treatment w/SPF 15

Kiehls Since 1851 Creme de Corps Light-Weight Body Lotion

Kiehl’s Since 1851 Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen for Body SPF 50

Essie Nail Polish ( I Love Bright Colors In Summer!)

Gucci Flora-( Favorite Summer Fragrance)

Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara

Sisley-Paris Self Tanning Gel 2

Today’s Designer Indulge: 3.1 Phillip Lim

So a couple of days ago I decided to try out Lyst.com and fell in love with the site. Now those of you who are familiar with Lyst are probably thinking what blogger wouldn’t love Lyst ? Well, I didn’t just fall for it because of all the great perks that are available, but it’s just an awesome site! It’s a shoppers dream, and extremely user-friendly.

While setting up my “Lyst” I discovered some really awesome stuff, but when I searched by designer that’s when it happened. I am a huge fan of 3.1 Phillip Lim, so obviously I started with him. Everything on the page was absolute heaven, but since I wanted to share the “Loves of my Lyst” with you, I kept it at a minimum. Well kinda. Anyway,take a look! All the items below are available along with my other favorites at lyst.com/kimdanielle.
