Chanel is very famous for setting the stage for what's hot in nail color trends. Even when a trend has held steady for a while, like the gray nail trend, Chanel manages to make it just that much more fashionable. For Spring 2010, nails are trending towards softer, but not wallflower shades. Chanel offers a deep putty gray called Particuliere, a soft, but juicy pink called Tendresse, and a creamy universally flattering peach called Inattendu.

Paul & Joe Beauté - Parisian Chic

About five or six years ago, I fell in love with a sweet line of beauty products called, Paul & Joe. I remember thinking why wasn't this line available where I lived. But when I took a trip to NYC in 2004, I saw the line in the Soho Sephora and in Bergdorf Goodman and fell even more in love. My favorite products were the lipsticks. Not only did the packaging send me over the moon because of its girlish quality, but the lipstick drenched my lips in color and moisture. The line was created by designer Sophie Albou. I'm inspired by the way the packages change to fit the mood of each fashion season. If you ever see Paul & Joe Beauté, the line is definitely worth checking out.

Ilari Roll-on Perfume

If you love fragrances that aren't overpowering, Ilari is a nice fragrance to try. This roll-on perfume is an exotic blend of jasmine, sandalwood, musk, ebony wood and orange blossom. The scent is highly feminine and clean. Reminds me of a warm, soft blanket.
