Glamour, Egyptians and COCO Chanel

Very exciting news! I am in the January Issue of Glamour Magazine!
I am featured as Toshiba’s Next Hot Blogger!
I am beyond stoked. This is my second major magazine feature second to Marie Claire.
So make sure to check it out.

I am reading some pretty awesome books right now as well including
 Chronicle of the Queens of Egypt by Joyce Tyldesley. You all know I am a sucker for anything egyptian and think I was probably an ancient egyptian in my past life. haha. But really these ancient egyptian women had an eye for fashion. The head dresses, the eye makeup, the finest barely there dresses. Ugh…I die…and hopefully reborn into an ancient egyptian queen.

I am also reading COCO Chanel An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney which is proving to be an awesome read. To many of us who are fashion addicts Coco is a fashion idol. Chanel is one of the best selling brands of all time and classic. This book gives more insight to the private life of this icon.

Check out more of my favorite fashion reads here.
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend thus far and thanks for reading.

    I love Ancient Egypt and Cleopatra is one of my idols! I should see if my local library has that book. It looks like a fascinating read!

    I did a project on Coco Chanel back in college and it involved reading about her life and I have so much respect for her vision and her hustle!
