Would you believe that it has already been 4 months since our last “A Collection Part” post? I can already hear Veronica’s voice in the back of my head saying, “I can.” Every time I speak to the girl, she’s always asking for another one. Little does she know, constructing these take forever! Good news though, I’ve already started building Part 40 so hopefully we won’t have to wait as long for the next one, but if she had it her way, it would be every week.
Making this post this time around was quite refreshing to me. Veronica once asked me how I choose the pictures that I do for this post and I don’t know if I was ever able to give a great answer. I probably just said that I chose the pictures I liked, but I’d like to elaborate on that a little bit. I used to do a bit of photography back in high school and in the early days of college, I brought my camera with me everywhere I went. I love that these photos are being taken in ways that I never thought of before. They are various shots that spark something in me, but I have no idea what it is and because I can’t explain it or put it into words of some sort, I love it. Maybe that’s not a better explanation than before, but it makes sense to me!

The red carpet is something that I always look forward to around award show season, but second in line to that is definitely the after party. Most celebrities have a second dress for the event and needless to say, we’re always interested in seeing second looks that aren’t as tame as the first one. Plus, we get to see a whole lot of celebrities that only get invited to the after party and not the award show itself. Sad day for them.
Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom are splitting after 6 years together. The two have been separated for several months according to E! Kerr gave birth to their son Flynn in 2011 and were married for 3 three years.
‘After six years together, they have recently decided to formalise their separation.’
The statement added: ‘Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.’
This is really sad! I always loved it when Orlando would come to her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to support her.
Who: Jessica Biel
Where: Saks Fifth Avenue
Alright, readers – Paris Fashion Week has come to a close and with that Fashion Month along with it. We’ll be back in the spring for the upcoming fall season coverage! In the meantime, here are some celebrities that dressed their best for the greatest event ever.
The other day I wrote a post about how selfies on Facebook/Instagram were overrated. That’s just putting it nicely. I didn’t say they were overrated, I actually questioned why selfies were being taken at all in the first place. Coincidentally, People Magazine just wrote a post about the ten ways you can take a selfie beautifully and I have to say that after reading this article, I might be changing my tune.
Example A. Miranda Kerr. Selfies are done best when they don’t really look like a selfie because of the outstretched arms. That’s not a comment by People Magazine – just a comment by me.

She may not be a Victoria’s Secret angel anymore, but the woman is WORKIN’ it. Literally, she’s still working – she’s not ever really going to have a problem with that. These new shots for Mango are absolutely flawlesss.

After multiple rumors swirled around last week that Victoria’s Secret had snatched Miranda Kerr’s wings from being an angel, the model has finally come clean about the breakup. Sources say that Kerr was “not a big seller for VS” (definitely not true!) while another source cited that she had a “difficult reputation.” Obviously, there was no truth to these rumors. Miranda is bowing out of her role as an angel because she’s a new mother and like many new moms, time off is kind of expected. Her priorities have changed and who can knock her down for that for wanting to be there for her 2-year old son Flynn with husband Orlando Bloom?
Miranda will surely be missed, but at least my favorite Lily Aldridge is still in!
Could there be anything more perfect than Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, and their son Flynn? I don’t think so. Australian model Miranda Kerr is kind of a household name (at least to me anyways,) and Orlando Bloom is an actor with a side hobby. Did some of you know that he enjoys shooting photography – specifically using Miranda as his choice of subject? I’ve seen quite a few shots from him, even some that were used in advertisements, but I don’t think I have shared these series with you until now. Here are some of my favorite latest photographs featured in New York Time Style Magazine.
I never drank caffeine or tea until I came to college because I was definitely someone that preferred Jamba Juice smoothies or Starbucks frappuccinos in high school. Yes, Seattle University turned me into one classy college student. Of course, if I wanted to pull all-nighters, blended fruit juices and sugar just weren’t going to cut it. Since being here at school, I have moved on from vanilla chai frapps and graduated onto white mochas – thanks Bree for introducing them to me.
In addition to the caffeine, I was able to let my wall down with tea. Both my parents are huge fans of it so after some convincing, I finally gave in. When Colangelo PR reached out to me recently to ask me if I was interested in trying Kusmi Tea, I was -of course- excited! They sent me this Essentials packet above featuring 12 of their best selling flavors (two of each – ie) 24 tea bags) which then prompted me to call Veronica over so that we could have a night of tea sampling.
Kusmi tea is a brand known for its traditional Russian style teas for the last 140 years and apparently is a favorite for Hollywood IT couple Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom. Here he is below with Kusmi bag in hand after leaving their shop.
Since I’m a huge fan of fruity flavors, I decided to try out the Prince Vladimir [citrus fruits, vanilla and spices.] What I loved about this flavor the most is that it was incredibly fragrant. The smell of it lingered the rest of the night and all I could think to myself was that I wish I had it in scent form. After finishing the tea, I felt at ease and calm. Some teas have been known to make me a little bit jittery, but this wasn’t the case at all with Kusmi. After splitting the flavors in half with my parents, I still have nine more left to try out on my own and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the flavors will bring to the table.
This past weekend, my dear friend Katie gave me the chance to try a classy new tea with her! Known as Kusmi Tea based in Paris and New York, we had a variety of flavors to choose from. While Katie tried “Prince Vladimir” I gave “Sweet Love” a shot. Meant to be a black tea with a kick, I was interested in the guarana that makes up the tea’s composition. To no surprise, I loved the subtlety of licorice and pink peppercorn that fit well with the hot beverage, giving it a kick. If anyone is looking for a new tea, I recommend looking for some Sweet Love.
