Gold Digger

It's going to be a golden weekend, with the 87th Oscars debuting this Sunday night.
As they say, a heart of gold is nice, but on the red carpet it's defiantly a dress of gold that will win the most points. There is nothing more glam than wearing this glitzy metallic colour in everything from sequined skirts and sparkling sweaters to glimmering jewels and stunning shoes. Gold  plays well with every colour and it's shiny finish will forever scream luxe.

Thinking of going gold? Great, but be sure to anchor it with low-key pieces and skip other metallics for solid colours and simple fabrics to be sure not to steal the focus from its gilded glamour!

3 Reasons To Say Good Morning To Lemon Water

Recently, I have started drinking a tall glass of cold lemon water first thing each morning. Lemon water has real beneficial effects on your overall health such as boosting the digestive system and immunity to encouraging natural cleansing.  Not only that, but a simple squeeze of fresh lemon is jam-packed with potassium, vitamin B and C, calcium, magnesium, antioxidants, and iron. Here are 3 other great reasons to add lemon water to your morning routine!

Glowing Skin

Antioxidants are plentiful in beauty products, particularly moisturizers, for their ability to ward off free radical damage, which causing premature aging such as age spots, crow’s feet, and fine lines. Luckily for us, lemon is rich in an essential antioxidant, vitamin C, which wards off wrinkles and blemishes, and promotes skin elasticity.

Enhances Immunity

Another use for foods high in vitamin C, like lemons, is their immune-boosting ability in the face of colds and the flu. Which means, a daily dose of lemon water will keep germs and viruses at bay. Starting off your day with a boost of Vitamin C is a great way to ward off all sorts of germs, viruses, as well as preventing you from catching that cold that could be circulating your work.

Enhances Digestion

If your digestive system is a far cry from feeling like its on track, a daily lemon water can provide some balance within. For instance, lemon provides natural alkalinity to balance stomach acids, promoting the ability to flush toxins from the digestive tract, and reduce gastro-intestinal issues such as constipation, heartburn, bloating, and indigestion.
