Sprinkles is Haute!

When it comes to cool trendy sweet spots, there's no better place than Beverly Hills to set the tone with an original cupcake boutique like Sprinkles. Imagine my surprise when I discovered a Sprinkles in Atlanta's posh Buckhead community. This little bakery is known for rotating their menu and long lines filled with Hollywood stars. 






The Lenox Square Mall cheery sweet spot is full of tasty and sinful treats like red velvet or black and white cupcakes, freshly made banana ice cream sundaes, vanilla milk shakes and double chocolate cookies. They even offer sugar free, gluten-free and Vegan versions of cupcakes.




Sprinkles is the perfect spot to visit for birthday treats and mini celebrations. I stopped by to sample something chocolate and creamy for my very own born day. It was a delicious way to start my special day. 

Sprinkles even has an ATM like vending machine for those who need a sweet fix no matter the time of day or night.

LaKur by LondonTown is Haute!

Beauty and travel goes hand in hand... LaKur by LondonTown inspires a trip to London with each polish change. This enhanced cutting-edge, high performing nail polish nourishes and restores my nails to optimum health.

This prestige line of nail lacquer also strengthens and heals, while it detoxifies. It has changed my nail care routine with each brush stroke. I love that it's full of vitamins, minerals and flowers oils from iconic gardens in Britain to keep my nails happy and healthy. And it's vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free.



My favorite LaKur by LondonTown colors:  
Purple Reign, Weekend Cheer, Cheerio and Bell in Time

Pink Inspiration for My Nails!

Spring is just a few weeks away but there's no time like the present to play with pink nail polish from some of my favorite luxury nail brands. Lakur by Londontown and Celebrity manicurists Jin Soon Choi and Deborah Lippman have the best shades of pink that look flawless on my nails.

Sol Republic's PUNK Wireless Speaker is Haute!


I am loving my PUNK wireless speaker by Sol Republic. It is absolutely fun and functional... it also pairs nicely with my ipad mini when I'm watching videos or listening to music.



My PUNK speaker allows me to rock out to my favorite songs with crystal clear sound hands free. It's so simple to activate with my iPad mini, simply turn it on and go to settings, press the Bluetooth button on my device and I'm all set.

The battery life lasts up to eight hours with a range of 60 feet. You can even use it in your car but I love it on the beach! It's now a staple in my Haute Travels bag. Time to pack for a yacht trip!


Bvlgari Brings the Perfect Indulgence for my Haute Travels Bag


As the New Year gets underway, there's no time like the present to add new fragrances to your travel bag. I am currently loving Bvlgari's Rose Essentielle Eau de Parfum purse spray. The iconic fragrance is an absolute jewel, feminine and exquisitely Bvlgari. The rose and blackberry heart notes are truly enjoyable.

I also love the limited-edition Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise body mist. The perfumed mist and lotion is a perfect pair for the Haute Travels girl who enjoys the finer things in life. The fragrance highlights the ultimate in seduction, femininity and indulgence with floral and woody fresh notes. I love the top notes of pink pomelo and green almond, with heart notes of Jasmine white tea and base notes of white musks and delightful woods.






MIYU Brews Up Haute Beauty Solutions

There's a new beauty duo that's brewing up hydration from the inside out. I recently discovered the amazing MIYU Beauty teas and Hydrate mi Beauty Essence for a perfect pairing. 

I love the idea of putting together my two favorite loves... a great cup of organic tea and facial mist that also contains the rich nutrients of a serum to counteract dehydration and stress on the skin. It really does boost my skin's natural ability to retain water. This is perfect for the Haute Travels girl who wants a pretty complexion while traveling especially when flying.


  
The teas and Hydrate mi Beauty Essence fuse ancient Chinese beauty secrets and the latest scientific advances in skincare using superfruits and vitamins to help the aging process. The amazing green rooibus tea has powerful natural ingredients like Goji berries when fighting free radicals, in all it contains nine types of flavonoids. The beauty tea was created for those who don't drink enough water or perhaps they drink too many caffeinated beverages... as well as the travel girl jet-setting around the globe.

Before you land in paradise sip some tea, moisturize and spritz your face with the Hydrate mi Beauty Essence. Dewy-kissed skin will surely make your day beautiful. 

Haute Tip:  If stress has got you singing the blues, MIYU also has the De-stress mi Beauty Essence and tea. It's designed for those who multi-task from "dusk to dawn." The body releases stress hormones which can cause skin irritation and even kill skin cells. De-stress mi Beauty Essence and tea contains natural ingredients that may have you looking haute and feeling stress-free in no time.

Haute Beauty Products From Paris!

When a Haute Travels girl travels the globe, she just may discover some amazing beauty products from the most fashionable places. Here are a few of my beauty must-haves for my Haute Travels bag from Paris.

I love the Dior Air Flash Spray Foundation in 500. It gives me great coverage and matches my skin flawlessly. And to keep it in place, I use the Dior Air Flash CC Primer and touch it up on long flights with Air Flash Matte Touch.



I recently discovered the beauty of By Terry Baume De Rose Nutri-Couleur. These lips balms are super hydrating and rich in color. The formula is mixed with Shea Butter and Vitamin E to help fight free radicals leaving my lips soft and sweet.



I also love the By Terry Rose De Rose blush… the pigment is amazing with light, medium and dark shades and it smells like roses on my cheeks. The packaging is also super chic in a silver compact with matching velvet cover.
