The Cool Girl Versions of Your Favorite Shoes

Cool girls understand the importance of a good shoe, which can take any outfit to the next level without much effort on your part. After all, when you’re donning an amazing pair of shoes, you can keep the rest of your outfit simple and fuss-free-which is something we’re definitely on board with.

In every stylish woman’s arsenal are essential shoe styles: mules, slides and sneakers. You probably already own several basic pairs of each, so we’re here to present you with something a bit different: the cool-girl versions of these essential shoe styles.

Mules

Mules went from being a trend to a staple style a few years ago, and we’re constantly on the hunt for fresh, new iterations. Luckily, they’re not hard to find.

How to Pack Like a Jetsetter

The New Year calls for new destinations…want to travel like a seasoned nomad? Let us be your guide on packing right, light and in style (of course!). Here’s our recommendations on how to pack like a jetsetter.

Pick a durable hard case bag that’ll not only be able to withstand the changing environment, it also avoids contents being pressed down too much from any added pressure. Plus, they’re non-expandable, which means lighter packing (God forbid you over stuff your bags and have no room for travel purchases).

Don’t pack anything you “think” you’ll want to wear. Take into account the number of nights and days you’re packing for and pack only essentials. Sure, having extra options is great, but if you want swift travels (like a jetsetter), minimal baggage is best. In any case, you can always shop additional items you may need (hey, any excuse to shop is reason enough for us!).

Pack shoes that can go from day to night with ease – sneakers are great for dashing through the airport and exploring, as are slip ons and loafers that are stylish and comfortable. And don’t let the space in your shoes go wasted when you can pack accessories and smaller items in them.

To avoid the hassle of looking for an iron and ironing board on your holiday (plus, those things can be tricky to work), pack clothes that are less prone to crease. Ideally, your travel clothes are the ones which are durable, takes up minimal space, wrinkle-proof and easy to match with other items.

Organize and pack everything separately: gallon zip lock bags are inexpensive and protects from color transfers, scrunching or snagging. Fold or roll separates to maximize space/minimize crease and make it easy to unload at your destination. Getting everything out as soon as you arrive at your destination avoids items buried at the bottom of the bag from going unnoticed. For toiletries, zip lock bags again are invaluable for avoiding spillage and keeping everything visible.

Place things you may need upon arrival at the very top: swimwear, sunblock (so you can hit the beach ASAP) and chargers. It’s best to pack all chargers together in a labelled zip lock bag for easy access (don’t forget the adapter if you’re going overseas!).

Turn Your Ordinary Water into Extraordinary H2O!

Introducing GEM WATER at Intrigue Fine Apparel

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GEM-WATER?

Quite simply, it’s any water enlivened by gemstones. By the time water gets to us through municipal systems or plastic containers, its natural vitality and structure becomes dulled and muted. You can use our collection of VitaJuwel Gem-Water Bottles, Vials, and Droplets to restore the natural structure of everyday drinking water.

Gem Water

HOW DO GEM-WATER PRODUCTS WORK?

Just add water… Each product incorporates a sealed glass gempod or vial filled with a unique gemstone blend, providing a convenient and hygienic way to transform everyday tap, filtered, or bottled water into gem-water in just 7-10 minutes. The unique gem blends are designed to transform your water and support your mind, body & spirit.

Gem 5

WHY IS GEM-WATER GOOD FOR ME?

We all know that proper hydration is immensely important to keeping our bodies functioning at their highest potential, so a healthy water habit is a must. But we’re talking transformation here! The energy of the gems actually restores the crystal structure to a quality comparable to water straight from a natural spring while also boosting the water’s alkalinity (pH level) and increasing its oxygen content. That means greater support for glowing skin, stronger hair & nails, and a healthy immune system.

Why tote a water bottle that just transports your ‘dead’ water when you can carry one that’s full of gorgeous gems constantly working their magic? And frankly, we could all use a little more magic in our lives!
