Blue sweater dress

Hey beauties,

Even though Minnesota is pretty good at playing bipolar during this time of the year, I have to admit that it’s starting to feel more and more like Spring here; and I’m loving it!

What have you guys been up to? As you can imagine, I have been quite busy with life and, as much as I would want to be more frequent here, it’s just not that easy these days… With Mother’s around the corner, this weekend I plan to spend some much needed quality time with my family, and hopefully a couple of hours of “Me time” lol.

This baby blue sweater dress is quite a beauty but the picture didn’t really do justice to it. I have styled it differently in the winter with some white boots and white fur coat for a a network event and I got tons of compliments. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to take pictures the first time I styled but this time around I went a more casual and monochromatic route by pairing the dress with these baby blue sandals.
I did have a “what if” moment so in some of the shoots I added this oversized rose hair piece and I loved it. The color contrast was perfect and the hair piece added a nice fashionable touch to the dress.

What do you guys think?
You can shop the look below.

Floral Tiered Maxi Dress for Spring

Beautiful-floral-spring-summer-maxi-dress

Top of the morning to you beautiful people!

How is your week going? I have been extremely busy, booked and blessed; and I can only be grateful for the blessings. April is full of excitement: I have attended Fashion Week Minnesota class of 2022 Ambassador Mixer, and it was a lot of fun. Fashion Week Minnesota is in a few days and I’m looking forward to it. If you live in the Twin Cities and love Fashion, you should come enjoy the many shows they’re producing. The events are selling out really fast, but there are still a few tickets left for some of them. You can grab your ticket on Eventbrite.com or find the link in Fashion Week Minnesota’s bio on Instagram. I will see you there if you make it, otherwise make sure to follow my stories and posts on Instagram to catch all the behind the scenes.

On another note, I have been featured in Voyage Minnesota Magazine, last week and I shared the news on social media. Voyage Minnesota is a local magazine, part of the LA-based voyage group of magazines. Their mission is to promote moms and pops local creatives, artists and small businesses by providing a platform for these hidden gems and talents to share their stories in their own words.
It is such an honor to be featured, so if you are interested in learning a little bit about my story, go check it out and let me know what you think. You can find the link to the article HERE.

This past weekend I have had a chance to do some outdoor shoots – a first in a while and I think I like it. As promised, you will definitely be seeing a lot more Spring outfits. Which colors are you guys enjoying the most this season? This tier floral maxi dress is perfect for the season. It is currently sold out, but I linked a few similar below for you to shop.

White on white | Street style


Hello there friends.
I know… Spring is here, and here I am sharing another winter outfit with snow on the ground. If you’re in the Midwest, you might be a bit forgiving… Just kidding, I promise you guys that I will be catching up with the Spring train; and you all be seeing Spring Styles sooner than later.
I wore this white on white outfit a few weeks ago for a Sunday outing. “Comfort meets style” has been my kind of vibe and uniform lately; and honestly, it feels good to keep it laid back, especially in the busy life season I’m in now. I won’t lie, sometimes I miss putting together killer outfits for photoshoots, or going to events that call for “must post / must share” attires… but, like they say, there’s a season for everything; and I can’t wait to share what’s in this next season for me with you guys.

Happy Valentine’s Day.


black-multicultural-influencer-hotel-reviews

Hello there friends and Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s been a minute since I last posted here; and this is my first blog post of 2022. So I  guess beside wishing you all Happy Love day, a Happy New Year wish is in order as well. I hope this day and 2022 bring you love, peace and prosperity.

A lot has happened in the last couple of months, but one thing that has remained quite constant during this brief period, while my time on the internet has been limited, is taking care of myself and getting the rest that I so desperately needed. Self care is self-love and you cannot pour from an empty cup. Speaking of which, my husband and I made sure that this past weekend, we spend some much needed relaxing time at the W Minneapolis – The Foshay as a pre-Valentine’s Day Staycation. The time spent there was lovely, and I made sure to snap a few photos and videos. I’m sharing some of them with you here, but if you are not following me on Instagram, you are missing out. Dare I say so myself, because I have been posting consistently there; and I have shared a few images and videos of our stay at the W Minneapolis the Foshay Hotel. Check it out and while you’re there make sure to say hello 🙂

Cheers!

5 holiday activities ideas you can do with family and friends


 


Creative-holidays-ideas-hypnozglamThe holiday season is upon us; and there’s no better time of the year to spend fun and quality time with loved ones. Even though a lot of things have changed, and big group activities may not be recommended or allowed, there’s still creative ways to enjoy the holidays with your family and friends. Below are some pretty creative ideas that you can implement into your holiday activities this year.
5 holiday activities ideas you can do with family and friends:
1- Get yourself comfortable in some matching PJ’s or loungewear, and go through old photos or videos of you and your family, around a charcuterie board. Going down memory lane, especially in these times, makes us realize how blessed we are to still be here, and how grateful we should be to have one another.christmas-2021-hypnozglam.2- Movie and Popcorn is always a great idea, and never goes out of style. It’s one of family traditions to binge watch Christmas or holidays movies (new and old) during the holidays season; and it never gets old!
If you haven’t watched “KING RICHARD” yet, it’s currently in theater and it’s a very inspiring life story of the Williams sisters and their family. It’s a good movie to watch as a family. My family and I enjoyed it.

3- Just like movie nights, you can never go wrong with game nights. Gather around some nice appetizers and play some of your favorite board games such as  Monopoly or Scrabble. – “Ride the Bus” a fun game which is a unique spin on the game 31 based on riding a school bus is quickly becoming a favorite in our family 🙂

Some other fun games to consider are “Tom and Jerry River Recycle” Or Zoo Trivia: Animal names spelling. our family new favorite game.
Make it extra fun and let the winner either make the rules for the next game or come up with something creative and enticing… 😉

4 – Make someone smile by sending them a warm greetings card, a gift basket or handwritten note. It could be someone you know that is struggling with something, or a total stranger in a nursing home, for example. This time of the year is, unfortunately, tougher for a lot of people; especially those who find themselves alone and far away from family.

5 – Last but not least: Drive through neighborhoods that have some beautiful holiday lights, and just bask in the glow and spirit of it. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, Christmas lights and decorations are just magical and so much fun to watch! 🙂

Let me know if you will do any of these holidays ideas. More importantly, do share with me and your fellow reader how you like it; and if you would recommend it to friends and family. 😉

Happy Holidays,

XO,

Edwige
