Lately I've been trying to make the most of my time and take advantage of opportunities to unwind. The hottest hobby to hit the relaxation scene since meditation is coloring, who would have thought, and I'm really into it. If you think about it, coloring for relaxation makes sense. I loved to color when I was little, when times were simpler. They say it's being "mindful" but it's kind of mindless and that's part of the calming effect.
You've probably seen a lot of coloring books out there with patterns and mandalas and while those are super fun, I love fashion. So a coloring book that has the words Paris Street Style is right up my alley. The book is full of beautifully drawn cityscapes, outfits, and couture storefronts. And of course, all in Paris!
With the holidays coming up, keep in mind that this is a great gift for your favorite stylistas. In fact, I need to chill out right now. Au revoir, I'm going to color some Parisian chic street style pictures.

No tickets to NYFW this week? No problem, because if you were there you'd be missing Fashion X Dallas this Thursday through Friday at Fashion Industry Gallery. Fashion, mingling, shopping and more - this is going to be an epic runway event (can you tell that I am excited?)! The fashion shows will feature a mixture of nationally-known, local, and independent designers. A lot of friends of Small 4 Style are being featured during Fashion X Dallas 2016. Just to highlight a few: Thursday night will feature Dallas style stars Steve Kemble and LeeAnne Locken. Binzario Couture will be showing their collection on the runway, and they never disappoint. Same with Ese Azenabor on Saturday. Friday night will feature looks from Vintage Martini, the fabulous and famous Dallas vintage store owned by Ken Weber. Plus, I am so pumped to see the Project Runway stars' latest collections, especially Daniel Esquivel, Chloe Dao, and Korto Momolu. Check out the Fashion X Dallas official website for the full schedule of events and to purchase your tickets.

I like a good smokey eye palette, and I love a good GWP (gift with purchase). The Clinique counter at the Belk Galleria Dallas is having a fab special right now. When you purchase $55 worth of Clinique, get a super-cute limited edition palette of 6 must-have shadows that are perfect for fall. There may be sweet shades on cover of this palette but the eye shadow shades on the inside are even better. And you definitely won't want to hide your eyes with sunglasses when you have these eye shadows on. The smokey eye isn't a new trend, but most "perfect" smokey eye palette are full of shades of gray and black. Clinique's fall shadow palette has neutral yet interesting colors, like navy and pewter.
At Belk Galleria Dallas with your purchase and palette, also receive a Clinique makeup bag with lipstick, cleanser, makeup remover, mascara, and moisturizer when you buy. While supplies last only, so you have to get over there!

The DIY gel manicure is the new nail trend. Just as the nail decal swept the nation a few years ago, gel mani kits are everywhere. Shiny, un-chipped nails are at your fingertips with 2-step systems by basically every nail polish brand out there. SinfulColors has a limited edition [kollection] of polishes designed by Kylie Jenner. Whether you love Kylie or hate her, these nail polishes are fabulous. And even though the Kardashians can afford every beauty product out there, SinfulColors products are super-affordable and made in the USA without harmful chemicals. Kylie's [kolors] look super-rich and luxe. They go on smooth and last for a week, which is way better than using regular polish.
