Winter seems never-ending this year, and I am ready to get my spring wardrobe on, but the weather outside does not agree with me (19F this morning!). But you can jump start your spring with colorful accessories, and feel like a new woman. Just looking at these bold & beautiful products make me feel warm and fuzzy inside, and I can feel the spring! Get out of winter funk and brighten your look with colorful accessories that look like candy. No matter what the temperature is outside, these will feel like sunshine, and you can use them even when it is freezing.
PHILIP STEIN WATCHES
Philip Stein Small Stainless Steel Case watch ($450) comes in bold colors like this hot pink one, and they claim to have exclusive wellness benefits clinically studied to reduce stress. That’s right – an on-trend watch which also helps to reduce stress. While the bring colors sure make you more cheerful, the Philip Stein watches also come with built-in natural frequency disk, making it easier for you to enter into a meditative state. By replacing extra-low frequency electromagnetic fields with the frequencies found naturally in the earth, a Philip Stein watch allows energy to flow freely and let you enjoy a sense of balance. These gorgeous Philip Stein watches have already been seen all over celebs from Oprah to Audrina!
More color hotness from Philip Stein! Fruitz Philip Stein watch collection is all about bold colors, fun and about well-being – these fun watches have the same natural frequency technology as the other Philip Stein watches, and they improve focus and life balance, including better sleep and less stress. I say yes please to Fruitz Philip Stein Happy Hour Cosmopolitan ($295) and the Fruitz Blueberry ($225) – perfect to spice up any outfit, and perfect for spring and summer.
NICOLE BY OPI NIC’S STICKS NAIL COLOR
I love Nicole by OPI Nic’s Sticks nail color ($5.99-$7) because it’s the fastest way to get your nails done on the go. It’s easy take along and get your nails a quick makeover in the school pick up line while you are waiting for your kids, on the train on the way to work or 5 minutes before heading out of the door. It dries super fast and is easy to apply due the fun pump-up brush design. You will only need one coat, it doesn’t look as good if you add a second layer. Yes, with one layer, the color doesn’t last as long either, that’s why I recommend OPI Nic’s Sticks in a bold color that you’d normally not buy and then using it on those days you need a pick me up stat and on the go.
ELLE MACPHERSON & BRAVADO INTIMATES
Who says that you have to show everyone that you are ready for spring? My mother taught me that woman should always buy fancy lingerie and she buys it first and foremost for herself. Get some lingerie that will make you feel sexy inside and out. Give colors a try. I like Elle Macpherson Intimates collection for this spring, feminine but not too sexy. Fun, but not funny. Wear them for yourself, but hey, if this improves your sex life, that’s an added bonus, Dr. Oz says that you will live around 3 years longer if you have sex more than twice a week. If you are a new mom, Bravado offers beautiful nursing bras that are functional and beautiful.
MICHAEL KORS BAGS
MICHAEL Michael Kors doesn’t disappoint this spring either. I love the yellow and green for spring, but there are also great blue and hot pink bags in the collection. These will look great already now combined with winter white or camel. Many of these are available at macys.com.
The bags pictured: Kingsbury Medium Tote (in Sun and in lower corner in ecru/green) $348, Hamilton Spectator Tote (in navy and green) $348 and Marina Large Shoulder Tote (in Sun) $198
KATE SPADE ACCESSORIES
I first saw a bright pink Kate Spade iPhone cover on my friend Kelly’s phone, and thankfully Santa was listening and I got one for Christmas and I love it! Kate Spade has several different styles of iPhone covers in bold colors and cheerful designs. You can also buy them at the Apple store, where they actually might have a wider variety than at KateSpade.com. The iPhone covers range between $35-40 and no worries if you don’t have the iPhone – Kate Spade also has cute brightly colored leather pouches for Blackberry ($25). You might as well check out the other Kate Spade accessories for color splash, like the hot pink coin purse ($75) pictured.
