The Love Of July

July 15th, we’ve surely reached the midpoint of this glorious, and sometimes infamous month of summer, and for the first time in quite a few summers, we keep having heatwave after heatwave after heatwave, with the humidity refusing to lead up, and here on the east coast, we’re in for the most suppressive, and most suffocating heat we’ve had in awhile this coming weekend, so it’s no better time today for Lauren Conrad and her LC Lauren Conrad Kohl’s collection to feature the best of what July can bring, if you keep your style scope in check with 2 cute pieces out of Lauren’s style space yet.

First, we get on the jumpsuits from LC Lauren Conrad, they come in beautiful blue denim that’s crowned as the knot-front jumpsuit which even on a sweltering hot day like today, the stylist jumpsuit stays cute and pretty while keeping the ladies cool by the poolside, the beachside, on the boardwalk, or up in the rooftop when the moment calls for a party with all the booze you want.

Now if you’re into staying indoors, and doing just a few errands staying in the air conditioning as much as possible, then Lauren puts her attention to this ensemble of a prairie tank and tickling plaid topper paired with blue skinny jeans that keeps the surroundings cool, and barely breaks a sweat either in a typical day in New York City, or even a hectic day in Los Angeles.

Lauren Conrad recruits Valorie Darling for photography posing advice

Always Look Your Best

The best thing about our iPhone cameras is that we can always take the worst moment in our lives and turn it into the best thing ever to hit our social space, with at least a thousand likes, and plenty of filters to glorify the experience, but there’s always some room to take it a step further, and it’s not adding more filters and wide angles to our iPhone this time around, this is about calling on a professional photographer to get those once in a lifetime moments to keep forever, which is why today is the day that Lauren Conrad brings in Valorie Darling who happens to not only be Lauren’s friend, but someone who can give you tips on professional picture posing.

With all that Valorie Darling has to offer in her services, and all the great wealth of information coming from “Asking For A Friend” on Wednesday, Valorie’s first piece of advice is investing in professional hair and makeup so not only do you have your best look, but the most elevated look of yourself, be color conscious by going with lighter colors that complement your tones, you have the option of turning on your good side, coordinate outfits without completely matching, and have some helpers on hand when doing a family portrait.

What’s extremely helpful is getting in as close as possible for any ole shot you do and not feel like you’re on the sidelines, try finding space in organic ways, create angles and dimensions with your hands and feet as much as possible, and be confident in finding as many photo opportunities as possible.

The Goodies Of Doing Good

Ciara wore Harry Kotlar diamond earrings to the Sports Humanitarian Awards on Tuesday evening in Los Angeles, California.

Helen’s brother Aria sends small diamonds from his small diamond cutting factory in Israel. Harry sells these stones in the Los Angeles diamond district.

He eventually leaves the clothing company to focuson selling cut stones.

Harry supplies diamonds to manufacturers and dealers, closing each deal with the same personalized service and charm he showed while working for the textile company.

The market responds favorably to Harry’s products and exceptional service. Clients feel confident in his wares, and this leads to orders for larger stones.

Harry graciously entertains their requests and starts supplying .30 to .50 carat stones this year.

Demand later grows for even larger stones. While other suppliers exist in the market, many buyers specifically seek out Harry Kotlar.

To meet this demand, he starts selling 1 to 2 carat stones.

With greater sales and better relationships with customers, business continues to prosper.

Members of the Kotlar clan joined the company.

Basha Kotlar Wiener and Louis Wiener shared Harry Kotlar’s dedication to customer relations, and are instrumental to maintaining the company’s steady growth.

The Kotlar business flourishes even further.

Harry begins to secure his legacy of creating luxury through impeccable service and attention to every facet.

The company launches a host of innovative services, including the Concierge, Passport, and Kotlar Luxury Experience.

These continue the philosophy of personalized luxury established by Harry over six decades ago.

Learning By Doing

There’s always the notion that if you want to be an actor, you gotta go to acting school, or if you want to be a good journalist, you gotta go to journalism school, or anything like fashion, TV, or filming, but it’s been proven once again that one can learn something just by doing one thing, you pick up the device, and you go ahead and use it, that’s where you learn your mistakes and pick up a few things so you can get better, Valorie Darling was one of those lucky ones who learned by observation after being an actor and dancer for so long, it’s what brought Valorie to photography in her talk today with Lauren Conrad on “Asking For A Friend”.

Valorie decided early on that her passion was behind the camera, and being the one who operates the camera of course, Valorie went over terms like terms, filters, grid, and apertures when she tries to capture the moment of a given image or situation before snapping the capture button on the camera where the magic gets finalized, you never know what you can achieve when you put a DSLR camera in your hands.

Whether it’s capturing a wedding, a child, or a Christmas Card, it’s very important to capture the moment naturally, because a forced moment can lead to disaster and a lost opportunity, so remember to capture the experience as it unfolds right before your eyes, not any other way.

Beyonce dazzled in $10.6K earrings in ‘The Lion King’ cast photo

Rocks Of Queen Bea

Beyonce dazzled in Vhernier Verso 18K rose gold earrings worth $10,650 in “The Lion King” cast photo in Los Angeles today.

Characterised by soft curves, extraordinarily bold dimensions, and mesmerising plays of colour, the Vhernier style is distinctive, instantly recognisable, mirroring Italian design, art and architecture.

A powerful inspiration filtered by the rigorous yet understated spirit of Milan. 

The jewels of the brand may be impressive in size, but never brash. The shapes are designed with the wearer’s body and the surrounding space in mind.

An understated attitude is a constant factor in Vhernier design: this is visible in its rings and bracelets that hold, rather than exhibit, sumptuous pavé diamonds and wonderful stones. 

Among the first Maisons to adopt rose gold, a discreet hue that suits every skin tone, Vhernier has experimented with the charm of natural materials such as ebony, jet, kogolong, and titanium, with which some of its most famous creations have been crafted.  

Each shape is forged by the exceptional skill of Vhernier’s master craftsmen.

There are a number of techniques Vhernier is most recognized for such as the Trasparenze (transparencies): mother-of-pearl and gemstones in dazzlingly bright colours masterfully layered with perfect cabochons of rock crystal create extraordinary plays of colour. 

The Pavé: velvety, compact and glowing with superb luminosity, our pavé offers a standard of excellence which is used as a point of reference in jewellery design.

The Sorpresa: bracelets made with extreme precision and superior goldsmith engineering, the epitome of the Vhernier understatement.
