Today was the calm before tomorrow's runway show storm. We had our makeup pre-test with the always fabulous Sarah Lucero and her glam squad from Stila Cosmetics, and one of our fave beach babes Rocky Barnes stopped by to be our glam guinea pig. Naturally, a photo shoot ensued.

We stayed in our suite at The Sagamore all day, working away. Models came in and out for fittings and last minute outfit changes. One of our stylists was DIY'ing the "Siren of the Sea" accessories for the runway, while the rest of the team worked on the final run of show and tied up last minute details. 

Later in the evening, we went over to the Delano to meet with our Cocobelle sandals team, and mixed a little business with pleasure over drinks. All in all, it was calm day for being mid-fashion week. Can't wait until tomorrow...the big day is finally here! 

Until next time, XO. 
What a whirlwind it's been! Miami Swim Week is already off to a crazy start and we are soaking up every minute of the fashion madness! We landed on Wednesday evening, freshened ourselves up, and went straight to The Raleigh for dinner, drinks, dessert, and shop talk. Jet lag wasn't going to keep us from hitting the town... ;) 

On Thursday morning, we were up bright and early to get started with the model casting, hair test, and styling. We saw HUNDREDS of beautiful babes; they came, they sashayed, they showed off their bangin' bods. How could we choose only a handful?! Eventually we narrowed it down, and started fitting all the girls in their looks. We seriously can't WAIT for everyone to see the new's TO DIE FOR. ABC also stopped by to film our casting process and interview Monica! 

Next up, we had our hair run-through with Jonathan Powell of Jonathan Product, who created an AMAZINGLY sexy wet-hair look for our runway show. Not much more we can say about'll just have the wait until Saturday to see the full look!

After a quick outfit change, we kicked off Swim Week in style at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 10th anniversary party! L*Space was a guest of honor, with a Mercedes Benz CLS getting outfitted in one of this season's hottest prints: Antigua White. Not ONLY was there a Mercedes outfitted in L*Space, but they created a matching limited-edition L*Space caftan to go with it. So. Chic. All in all, it was a glamorous affair filled with fashion folk and celebrities alike. 

We can't wait to see what the rest of the week has in store...and REALLY can't wait to finally unveil our "The Water Is Waiting" collection on Saturday night! 

PS - Did we mention that after the show on Saturday night you'll be able to shop NEW styles fresh from the L*Space runway on Stay tuned for more details, L*Space lovers! 

Until tomorrow! Xo

The most coveted style of any bikini babe is, of course, “the beachy wave”. You know the look; those perfectly tousled waves only made possible by lounging in the sun and swimming in the sea. We’ve tried and tried, again and again, to recreate this look without the aid the ocean, but to no avail….

UNTIL NOW. That’s right, ladies. We’ve found the holy grail of all products to achieve the perfectly un-perfect beachy wave- no trip to the beach required! 

It’s called Reactivating Sea Mist from Jonathan Product. Spray this stuff liberally throughout your towel dried hair. For a tighter beach wave, twist hair into a bun and  diffuse with a blow dryer. For a softer, more natural wave, simply scrunch your hair several times and let it air dry. Mermaid hair achieved!  


One of the simplest (and most affordable) ways to switch up your look is to try a fresh lip color! We asked Stila Cosmestics own Global Director of Education, (and make-up artist to the stars) Sarah Lucero, to give us the 411 on lip color trends for summer 2014. A girl after our own hearts, this season she’s into mixing and layering different colors and textures, and is inspired by bright “fruit punch-y” colors! Here are her tips for creating a killer summer lip:

1.“Stila Passion Fruit Crush Lip & Cheek Stain is a great universal base for a fruit punch inspired lip. Top it off with Stila Fruit Punch Lip Glaze for a citrus-y look!”


2.“Another punch inspired pout can be created by applying Stila Yumberry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain all over the lip and topping it off with Ultra High Glossy Stila Raspberry Lip Glaze


It’s THAT simple! Change your lip color & change your whole look. Isn’t it fun being a girl?! To learn more make-up tips from Sarah & get an insider’s view from her star-studded make-up chair, follow Sarah on Instagram and Twitter at @sarahluceroglam. 


Q: HELP! I love Summer; but the salt, sun, and sand have taken a serious toll on my tresses! What can I do to bring my hair back to life?!

A: Ugh- isn’t that the worst?! But- have no fear sun buns! We’ve consulted a hair master, Mr. Jonathon Powell of Jonathan Products, for his expert advice on not only taming your summer tresses and restoring them back to health. Here’s what he had to say:

“Beach days are what we look forward to ALL year! Unfortunately, the sun and salt water can do some serious damage to those beloved locks. Jonathan Product’s new Hydracurl Shampoo, Conditioner, and Leave-In Treatment are the DREAM TEAM to help you both prevent and repair already damaged hair. Here’s how it works: 

Our Hydracurl Collection helps your strands fight frizz and protects your tresses from heat, humidity, and other environmental factors by using a blend of organic oils. Jojoba Oil helps to minimize strand breakage and adds much needed moisture. Coconut Oil locks in the hydration; leaving your hair supple, soft, and full of shine.

For further repair after washing with the Hydracurls Shampoo and Conditioner, treat your strands to our Leave-In Conditioner. Our Leave-In Conditioner contains Grapeseed Oil and Shea Butter, both of which are great emollients and nourishing oils that condition your hair and scalp. Simply place a small amount on the palm of your hand and spread through your hair evenly…paying extra attention to those sun-damaged ends!

The combination of ingredients in the Hydracurls Collection will leave your hair super soft, manageable, AND protected; so you and your hair are ready for more beach days!”
