FASHIONRADI TURNS ONE!

Hello everyone,


LET'S CELEBRATE
This week we raise a toast (even though I don't drink) to the one year existence of FashionRadi

I'm so excited and ooh so thankful for each and every one of you. Every share, comment and friendship really means a lot to me, so BIG thank you to all of you who follow and enjoy my blog. 
As a way of celebration, today we're going back in time because I'm going to share with you my Top 5 favorite posts that I've done. They're actually more than five, but to keep it short and sweet I'll narrow my choices down. 

Cheers to many more blog anniversaries and let the fun begin! Yeahhhhh   


1. DESERT GODDESS!   


 It all stared with this bohemian fashion look that will forever be close to my heart because it was my first ever blog post that went live this time around. I still remember my excitement, joy in finding my true passion and creating a blog that allows me to show and share my love for fashion. That same feeling is still with me, keeps me awake at night, thinking of new, greater ideas. I wake up each day and I can't wait to start working and see the final result of something that a few hours ago was just an idea. How awesome is that?! 
I love this outfit for the pieces that I put together and for stepping out of my box by creating a look that is boho-chic and perfect for a spring/summer festival. 
To read the whole story and see all the beautiful desert shots, click on the title (it'll take you back in time to the days I was a desert goddess!) 

2. BURST of NEON!   


It's all about the neon and the party in this post. These lights made my neon colored outfit pop and brought so much creativity to the shots that I had to include it as my second favorite post. Plus, using my fan as a prop was lots of fun and an unique approach to styling an outfit. Just thinking about it, I'm smiling from ear to ear! :) 
If you don't know by now, I'm a color freak (all bright colors are my thing), so this post exactly portrays me and shows my bright side to the max. I suggest you check it out because I think you'll enjoy the fun photos and of course the pretty neon outfit. 

3. ANGELIC in WHITE


Yes, all white baby! I dreamed of creating this look since I started the blog and this is the outcome, which is very satisfying and like all others, a memorable one for me. 
I just love an all white look because it's so pure, light and looks incredible on anyone. I prefer white in front of black any day of the week. No wonder brides to be wear white dresses, it's angelic.  
What a fun shoot it was! I adore my furry friends in the back, who were so professional and so tempting to ride. Here's an idea, maybe next time I should be riding one of them! I'm sure that would be a blog post to remember and one that will make the list next year around when I do another Top 5 favorite posts. What do you think?      

4. FRESH, FRINGE and FABULOUS  


 On fourth place is this fabulous look that consists of fringe, print, big hat, endless sunshine and..... lots more! 
All I remember was that it was an incredible hot day in Las Vegas, which in the end left me feeling exhausted and wanting to dive into a pool of iced water. If you're wondering, that didn't happen, but what happened was I got some great photos, which you can see on the actual post. Let me know if the amount of sweat that went down was worth it?!

5. LOVE LEATHER!    

 
Adding some leather power to the mix is the right way to end this birthday blog celebration and start my second year! 
This outfit speaks volumes of woman empowerment and sex-appeal because you know we can do everything from start to finish in an outfit like this one. Leather gives me the confidence to go after whatever I desire without any STOP signs. So I suggest putting on what makes you feel this way and start on conquering everything there is in your heart. Be brave and rule each day! 
For extra inspiration head over to the original post and leave a comment telling me what is the one item that has you feeling confident and unstoppable? Can't wait to read your answers! 


That's a wrap to this week's blog party!!! 
In the spirit of turning one year old, please comment below which has been your all time favorite post on FashionRadi? I would LOVE to know! 

Also, here is the chance to thank my photographer who also, happens to be my sister. THANK YOU for your support and love from the very beginning! It means the world to me. Check her out on Instagram!!! (Taking photos isn't her only talent, you'll be surprised at all the other things she does!)


                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                    Love, Radi

TOP 5 FAVORITE SUMMER RINGS!

Hello everyone,


I'm back from the desert!!! (POST HERE)
Let the summer party begin because we're not only going to dream about the summer, but also speak about something else that I love, let's say it together, JEWELRY
With summer being more than a month away, I though it's the perfect time to share with you my top favorite rings for this season. As you already know, I'm a big fan of all kinds of jewelry from anklets to million bracelets that I can never get enough or gush enough about my favorites, which is why you're in luck because you're going to hear me go on and on and on.... about these five beauties. 

Let's get started! 


1. This first delicate beauty is an all time favorite of mine because it screams summer, most importantly the beach, which I love. Even if I'm not near the beach, anytime I wear it, I feel at ease as if I'm relaxing by the sea with the sound of the waves crashing in, the sunlight kissing my skin and the feeling of joy drawing me in. What a wonderful dream! I wish I could just snap my fingers and make it real, but you know, wearing this ring is enough to make me summer happy. 
I love the golden starfish with the tiny silver stud in the middle and just how pretty it really is. It can be paired up with other sea inspired rings, so you completely transport your hands to that magical dream I mentioned earlier. 
I have a matching bangle bracelet that goes with this ring, both pieces are by LC Lauren Conrad, which you can find at Kohl's. I love her laid back California vibes style that she has incorporated into her clothing and jewelry designs. 

          
 2. Without some love hearts, summer cannot be complete, which is why adding this ring to my favorites was as easy as two plus two. It's really unique from the regular heart rings we've all seen because the hearts are cut-out and go around the whole ring. I find that it looks extra feminine and lovely when the skin peeks trough the heart shapes. Yes, when I wear this ring sometimes I'm so mesmerized by it that I stare at it for quite a while. :) 
I found it at a little shop on the Las Vegas Strip that had such pretty designs, it was difficult to choose from, but the minute I saw this ring, my mind was made up. That's me, when shopping, I see something that I like, I stick with it, purchase it and almost never change my mind about it. So easy and most importantly satisfying! What about you, do you find it hard to pick something out or once you see an item, you know it's meant for you? Let me know!   

     
 3. What can I say about these "silver bubbles"?! Just look at this ring, it's so fun, pretty and everything that I look for in a jewelry piece. It totally matches my personality, which is why I love jewelry so much. One, you can express your true self without a single word. Two, you can mix and match, depending on your mood for each day of the week. The weekend; that's when it gets crazy (in a good way.) 
I purchased it from Macy's not long ago and you know what, I'm ready to go back for more. I fell in love with the texture, the elegance and the uniqueness of the design. It would be perfect for any summer occasion from a summer wedding to a casual stroll at the mall (my favorite!) 

 
4. Love some rainbow colored 3D stackable rings like these ones that all go together as one. You can stack them however you like, all on one finger or spread them out on all four of your fingers (since there are four of them.) 
These are my summer favorites because they always go well with my colorful dresses, skirts and rompers. What can I say, I'm a colorful spirit! :)
Those of you who are like me, would love these rings because you can wear them on their own or pair them with other dainty rings you own for a variety of looks and outfits.
If you're curious, Charming Charlie is the store I got them from. I even think that they were on sale, so it was one happy purchase. 

  
5. We've come to my last favorite ring, which is the "biggest hit" during those hot summer days. Again it's from Charming Charlie, but completely different from the previous rings. I like its oval shape, the diagonal line of rhinestones, the hot pink and that it's bigger (I can throw a good punch with it- hahaha.)

Ohhh and if you're wondering what nail polish I'm wearing, it's "Lots of Lux" by Essie. I've always loved glitter nail polishes and it's blue, which wins extra points in my book because that's my favorite color. It reminds me of the sea, the sky..... loved it since I was little and still keeping that love alive. How poetic and lovely of me!!! :)        

Which ring do you like the most? Also, please share with me your favorite piece of jewelry for the summer. It can be a ring, necklace or a bracelet. I really want to see it, so send me your photos either on my Instaram or Twitter. 
  
The last time I did a TOP 5 Favorites post was in November of my most treasured necklaces, which you can check out here: BLOG POST! You all seemed to really like it, so I hope you enjoyed this one as well. Soon I'll do another one, just let me know what you'll like to see me talk about next in my Top 5?!

That's all for this week! Be here next week because we'll be celebrating something special and I want you present because you are the biggest part of it. Any guesses?    Ciao!!!
