Day of Firsts: Guest Posting & Friday's Fancies #1

Happy weekend to all my lovely readers
Today is a day of firsts for me!!
I'm guest posting over at the lovely Caitlin's blog Fit, Fierce and Fabulous while she is living it up over in Europe for a few weeks. 

Fit, Fierce and Fabulous
Not having done a guest post before and since Europe was her destination I decided to talk about my "adopted homeland", England along with the great things it has to offer, some of my experiences while living there, the major differences to America and a little translation guide if you're planning on going over there anytime soon. These are must know words especially if you want to be pointed in the right direction for the restrooms!! So head on over there and show some love!

My second, first, is I'm linking up with {AV} over at Long Distance Loving for her weekly 

This week my inspiration has been the tagline "Gold is the new Black".
With bright colors being a huge trend this spring and summer, gold has made a huge comeback with it's glossy and shine appeal pairing brilliantly with the bold colors seen in all the runway shoes and I have to say {despite being a HUGE black fan}, I'm loving the trend and my gold inspired outfit.  

Gold is the new black

A touch of gold, seems to make all the difference! 
The DVF dress and shoes have a perfect touch of gold to really shine bright. Paired with the Kate Spade bangles of bright oranges and pinks and glorious patterns, this outfit embodies the gold trend. For even more luxury add a spritz or two of Marc Jacob's Daisy perfume and light up an Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien Candle and you don't even need to be in Rome to feel like an absolute goddess. 

What do you think of the gold trend? Is it the new black?

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
