British style is the move these days and here’s a tip on how to look a little like a royal. The Queen’s favorite handbag brand is Launer London. Sleek, elegant and understated, it’s truly a handbag fit for a queen.
At a price tag of about $2000.00 it’s quite an investment. Here’s a suggestion on how to get this royal look without the royal price tag. This Kate Spade Beacon Court Garland satchel is a good choice…

Of course I’m thankful for my family, friends, all my loved ones and my health. But since this is a fashion & beauty blog I’m going to talk about a few superficial things that I’m thankful for today.
Thank you for…
1) The Egyptians for inventing makeup. Being woken up three times last night by my young sons has me looking a bit haggard to say the least. With the miracle of make-up I will not only look a great deal better, but also be feeling more beautiful and alive. When you look good you feel good right?
I learned about Miniluxe at the StyleFixx event I attended a few weeks ago. They were giving manicures and there was quite a line to recieve one, so i decided to wait and schedule one at the actual store. That way I could get a real feel for what they were all about and what made them different from other nail salons.
They have eight locations, their newest being in Lynnfield, MA on the North Shore. So you have a good chance of finding one in your area. I chose the one on Derby Street in Hingham because it’s closer to my house.
One of their main objectives is to provide a clean experience. Meaning all of their tools are guaranteed to be cleaned thoroughly before they use them on you. Remember when Paula Abdul showed up to American Idol wearing a cast because of a bad experience at a nail salon? Well, the reason is that the tools weren’t cleaned properly and she got an infection so bad it hurt to even touch her thumb.
The most common way people get these types of infections is from nail utensils that have not been properly sanitized. Miniluxe takes away this concern with their clean business practices. You pay a little more for the service but let it’s worth it for the peace of mind that you are in good hands.
How do you know that they are as clean as they say? You can tell right when you walk in, the store is crisp white and clean as a whistle. No perfumes or scents in the air so you know they aren’t hiding anything and there’s not a piece of dust on the floor. In fact, one of the salon employees was sweeping the nearly perfect floor while I was there to guarantee its cleanliness.
About my experience, the staff was phenomenal. Very professional and friendly, offering me something to drink and taking my coat when I walked in. My manicure was exquisite, I had Eva as a manicurist. She was very gentle and thorough. One of the best parts was the nail dry stations have IPads! So you can go online when you are drying your nails to occupy the time. Brilliant.
So, what color did I choose? Ibiza by Zoya.A beautiful cobalt blue.For a chance to win like my Facebook page and share this post! http://www.facebook.com/simpleaesthetic
