Shaking in My Boots

Each season seems to have its own category of specialized footwear. Summer has its strappy sandal and flip flops, Spring has its flats and peep toe pumps, and Winter has its riding boots and uggs. But what about Fall? When it comes to fall footwear its all about an ankle bootie. Booties are extremely versatile and comfortable. Short booties look great paired with skinny jeans and a pullover or with a sweater dress and tights. Wear them from daylight to dawn and you’ll be looking good no matter what. Since they’ve become such a huge trend this fall they are not that hard to find. Be sure to grab a pair of short booties this fall, they are a great addition to any wardrobe.

Weather the Storm: How to Make Your Shoes Last

Fall is here and soon winter will be knocking on our doors. Leather and Suede boots are more than a statement for both seasons, they are a "must have." With the snow and rain our boots and shoes go through trenches and sometimes barely make it by the end of the seasons. Leather is skin and it needs to be cleaned and moisturized. Taking preventative steps, like adding sole quads and spraying the leather can add years to the life of your shoes. 

Unlike leather, Suede requires a little more maintenance. If you douse shoes with a leather-protectant spray every few months it will create a shield that keeps water and grime from penetrating. If you get caught in the rain with either leather or suede boots stuff your shoes with paper towel or newspaper when you get home. It will help to keep the shape. Try these tips and your boots or shoes should stay durable throughout the season.

The perfectly blended eye looks, how to apply cream liner, how to define eyes, how to apply blush for your face shape and how to get perfect lips.

New Hair Trend: Sombre Highlights

Lower lighting is the hair trend that never seems to end.  This year take it up a notch with "Sombre Highlights." Unlike Ombre highlights Sombre highlights mimic a faded look with highlights added around the face and a much more gradual descent into a brighter shade of your natural hair color.  The more polished look is awesome for redheads, blondes and brunettes.  It also ideal for taking your summer hair into winter.

Show Some Skin

Alluring python slithers this fall, giving your look an extra bite this season. Although this isn't a new trend, it seems to have revived once again. This Fall's fashion trend is all about statement and you'll definitely be making one if you add some snakeskin to your ensemble. If you're weary you can make baby steps. For example, a simple but trendy snakeskin heel or a clutch to make you look fierce for a night out!

Restoration Weekend

Founded by Michelle Hargrove in 2007, Restoration Weekend is a one-of-a-kind 4 day, 3 night, luxury weekend of serenity, reconnection, and personal revival for women who need to “restore” themselves from the many hats they wear as busy wives, mothers, caregivers and career women. Designed for the busy, over-extended woman who often gives more than she takes, the purpose of Restoration Weekend is to educate, empower and restore women as dynamic influences in our society. During this time of restoration, 40 women from all walks of life and various parts of the country, are inspired, uplifted and empowered by industry leaders, events and sessions focused on business, psychology, nutrition, spirituality, finances, and physical maintenance. Restoration Weekend attendees also have the opportunity to participate in Restoring Hope™, a service project to give back to the community, typically involving school aged children. Restoration Weekend this year was in Turks & Caicos!

For the second year in a row, Indique's Pro Stylist, Gabrielle Corney joined by Celebrity Makeup Artist DeeDee Kelly and Celebrity Hair & Makeup Artist, Chris Gees, all participated in the "Restore the Glam" segment. Gabrielle styled a gorgeous participant with Indique's PURE Wavy U-Part!

Many of the ladies said that "The Restoring The Glam" was their favorite part of the weekend. There were many tears of joy!
