3 color trends Spring 2017

When it comes to trends in colors, this year’s main palette consists of some unexpected and sometimes overlooked Yellow, Light Green and Blush.

These are the colors of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew. Every spring we enter a new cycle and new shoots come from the ground. It is something life affirming to look forward to.

Holiday hairdo transformations.

One of the easiest and quickest fixes to change your look from work to evening is a new hair style. Bring a hair wand with you and spend a few minutes curling your locks before you leave. Apply shimmer lip gloss and add statement earrings to complete the look.

Back to basics.

When going from day to evening just remember the purses get smaller, the shoes get higher, and make up gets darker. Start with a great basic black skirt and tights, and then simply swap out the shoes, the purse and enhance your makeup.

A few simple rules to remember to turn it into a smooth and stress-free gift-giving season:
1. If you have an office “best friend,” exchange gifts outside the office. Not only will it be more personal to you, but it won’t make your other co-workers feel left out.
2. Don’t get too personal. There’s no need to find out your boss’s favorite perfume, for example, and purchase a bottle. That would just be strange.
3. Don’t worry too much. No need to stress out about finding the perfect gifts for your colleagues. That’s the job of their family and friends. A little token of appreciation is all that’s needed.
