Hello all my fashion divas and gurus!  Finally Heavy on fashion XXOO Shopping/Gift Guides: Summer 2015 edition. Yes, I know it has been a long time coming all my lovely divas and gurus, but I promise you this is a list that you have to get into! So let me get into what you need to get before your summer days will come to an end. 

Robert Matthews Rose Gold Eternity Necklace

I love a great piece of jewelry especially a light piece to wear for the hot summer months. The lovelies at Robert Matthews introduced me to their fabulous jewelry line. Now, I am familiar with the Robert Matthews brand after falling in lust with Robert Matthew's Peyton Satchel Tote Bag.

This rose gold plated necklace has 2 delicate CZ stones and the word "LOVE" engraved on the lower portion of the circle. It is light and great to wear as a everyday piece. In the summer, simple and light pieces are a must so I definitely recommend for the season. This Robert Matthew Rose Gold Eternity Necklace retails for $69.00!

Dauphines Of New York Headband

You can't have a fulfilled summer without sportin' a headband. Yes, in my fashion mind headbands are a summertime must. I am so delighted that Dauphines Of New York Headband. It is super comfy, stylish, and just fun. You have to check out the entire Dauphines Of New York Headband collection at The Dauphines of New York Headbands is a must have.

Nala Malas necklace 

I received this fabulous necklace as a gift from a former coworker, Claudia in New York and I feel in love with this Nala Malas' Energize Mala. I love the quality and look of the Nala Malas necklace. This necklace is 19.5 inches long. The use of garnet, aquamarine, fresh water pearl, gold plated beads, and a cotton tassel ties to lovely necklace to a fashionable and spiritual place.

 Currently I am transitioning into becoming a full time blogger again and focusing on my brand. I am so thankful that a friend thought of such a lovely and spiritual gift for me and my new career journey. A Mala  is a set of prayer beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists, usually made from 108 beads. Now I am not a Buddhist nor do I practice Hinduism but I respect both religions. Plus I need any spiritual help I can get.

You can pick up the Nala Malas' Energize for $355.00

Dirty Chick by Antonia Murphy
