Inspire & Empower



Ivory Cape Blazer by DIAMONDS UNLEASHED x Project Gravitas launching April 12, 2016 

Dress: ASOS | Elsa Gladiator Sandal: Mari A | Necklace: DIAMONDS UNLEASHED 

Every woman should have that confidence booster go-to piece in their closet. My new wardrobe staple is an amazing cape blazer in collaboration between Diamonds Unleashed and Project Gravitas. You can literally wear this cape with ANYTHING, it is extremely flattering and makes you feel like an everyday superwoman. The first co-branded Diamonds Unleashed outerwear piece, the Diamonds Unleashed x Project Gravitas Cape Blazer will retail for $295 (20% of the proceeds from each sale will go to Diamonds Unleashed which supports non-profit partners Girls Who Code and She’s the First) and will be available in Ivory and Black. 

Looking good and giving back to support women's education makes it an easy win-win! The inside lining of the cape features our Diamonds Unleashed women's empowerment symbol, interpreted in a beautiful repeating pattern. The symbol is two diamonds, one elevating outside the other, those two shapes together form a heart. The heart symbolizes the unifying philanthropic power of women helping women, to help create the next generation of strong female leaders.

Diamonds Unleashed celebrates women’s strength, independence and solidarity while supporting organizations that empower women around the world. The brand is brought to life through collections of jewelry and other products, a platform of compelling content, and a powerful network of influential ambassadors who’ve joined in the movement; Lisa Sun, founder of Project Gravitas being one of them. 
This gorg cape will be available as of April 12th so mark you calendars dolls! 

I paired this casually chic outfit with some fun suede gladiator sandals by Mari A. I am obsessed with fringe and anything "cut-out" or "cage" for Spring 2016. Not only are these sandals comfy and cute, but they are perfect for the office or a dinner date. I am all about giving back these days, it feels so good to help empower other women! On that note, I have teamed up with Mari A for an official giveaway on my IG account THIS SATURDAY 3/26. If you love these shoes and want a pair of your own, follow me on instagram for more details @jaclynnbrennan. 

Until next time xo

Ildi Pekar Skin Care | 315 Madison Ave, Suite 2600 | PH: 212 682 6080

When was the last time you had a deep cleansing facial? Can't remember? That means it's been way to long! "Your skin is your best accessory", directly quoted from master esthetician Ildi Pekar. I had the pleasure meeting Ildi last weekend for one of the BEST cleansing facials I have ever had. Whether it's your first time, or you are seasoned in the beauty world, she has an incredible amount of knowledge and professional that are incomparable to my past experiences. One of the best points about Ildi is her great passion for skin care and love for her clients. It's SUCH A PLEASURE to work with positive people that truly enjoy their job. 

Deep cleansing facials are usually not always so pleasant because of extractions and steam. Ildi used an amazing facial massage technique to open my pores and relax my facial muscles which made a huge difference. After the facial I did not have much redness, and my skin felt moisturized and glowing. 

Ildi Pekar's training is deeply rooted from her cultural experiences and education as a native of Budapest, Hungary. Obvi we know Budapest is known for it's famous skincare treatments, hot spring saunas and therapies...can we say dream trip coming soon?! The I.Pekar skin line uses natural ingredients carefully crafted. 

I highly recommend Ildi Pekar for your next facial. Stay golden and glowing ;)
