Five Hundred Miles...to go

Posted by Chloe from Emma&Chloe on

Long-distance relationships are hard. But with a few tips from Chloe, it might be easier to manage than you think! 

  1. Communicate: Communication is super important in a long-distance relationship. But the one I’m referring to is the one before you jump into a long-distance relationship, you and your partner need to sit down and talk about your values as well as your goals. If you see that your guys are on the same page and if you still want to make it work over the distance, do it!
  2. Make time to see each other: You need to make time to see each other in person from time to time. This meet-up will serve as a temporary light at the end of tunnel that will help you survive the time that you are not seeing him/her.
  3. Don’t sweat the small stuff: It is essential to remember that when you get into a fight, you can’t see each other immediately to make it up. Words can be misinterpreted over texts; sentences can be misheard over your call. You need to learn to choose to let go some things.
  4. Remember you have the liberty to do whatever you wish to do. There are definitely bright sides in being in a long-distance, during your time apart, you can focus on your work and your studies, spend more time with friends, and visit your family.
  5. And if you are worried about what to get for your significant other’s birthday, Emma&Chloe is here to help with our gift subscription services. Whether you are currently studying abroad in Europe or your girlfriend/ wifey is, you can make a three month gift subscription to let her know how much you care for her!

    NYFW: Five Things That You SHOULDN'T Miss

    Posted by Chloe from Emma&Chloe on

    • Kanye West and Yeezy

      Journalists and editors alike were “kidnapped" to Randall’s Island for the big day and the show was apparently late for three hours. Taking place next to a smallpox hospital, models were made to stand under the unforgiving New York sun and some of them even had to sit down to avoid fainting.

    • Tommy x Gigi

      Gigi Hadid heats up NYFW by partnering up with Tommy Hilfiger in designing his latest collection. We know the brand has not been cool for a while, but is supermodel Gigi really the panacea?

    • Rebecca Minkoff and her friends!

      You probably heard of Chriselle Lim. She’s a fashion designer, stylist, Instagrammer, Snapchatter (it’s not a word, but we’re going to use it anyway), etc. But you probably didn’t know her new title - model. During the fashion week, she was invited by her friend, Rebecca, to hit the runway promoting her latest designs.

    • Mansur Gavriel

      Mansur Gavriel are surely known for their bucket bags, but their new red leather suede bags are just to die for!

    • Emma&Chloe knows how much you guys want to stay “à la mode.” However, we also understand that saving money is important for you, especially for our students. That’s why we want to offer a student discount – enter the code “STUDENT” when you check out and you’ll SAVE up to $26 per purchase!

    It's that time of the year!

    Posted by Chloe from Emma&Chloe on

    Hey girls!

    It’s back to school time am I right? Are you guys excited? When I was back in high school, the only time that I was looking forward to being back at school was because my crush, who I haven’t seen for a whole entire summer, was going to be there as well. Today I want to give you guys tips on how to look fresh and elegant on your first day back to school.

     

    1. Don’t apply foundation. Instead, go for a CC cream or tinted moisturizer to even your skin tone. Even if there are little imperfections that a CC cream can’t cover up. Don’t worry, these imperfections will make you look natural and not someone who just caked on 50 layers of foundation.
    2. Forget about fake lashes and eye shadows. Double up your mascara as an eyeliner. Again, we want to achieve a look that is as natural as possible. By dabbing your wand lightly against your upper eyelid, you can highlight on your inner eyelid while being discreet.
    3. If you feel bold enough, put on some red lipstick! I know I’ve been trying to tell you to look natural. But nothing like bright red lipstick on a neutral face will make you stand out!
    4. Of course, we can’t go without our Olympe cuff! It is an elegant golden cuff decorated with leather strips that will enhance any look!

     

    Because we understand what it is like, having been students ourselves, we have a very special surprise for you! Use the code: STUDENT to get $26 dollars off of your first box!

     

    Xoxo,

    Keep Calm and Love Emma&Chloe!

    Posted by Emma From Emma&Chloe on

    Hey Jewelry lovers!


    Sorry for the delay! I was sick for some time this week, and I’m finally feeling better! I was under a lot of stress and was feeling quite anxious. But while I was sick I thought a lot about my anxiety. And although I can’t make it go away completely, I can definitely help to ease some of the unnecessary pain that it was causing me.


    There’s a verb in French that’s called “profiter,” which means “to take advantage of,” and we often associate it with the word for life. We say “profite de la vie.” It could be translated as making the most of your life. But I personally prefer translating it as taking advantage of your life. Because it adds a little bit of “selfishness” connotation to it. We often feel like we are obliged to do many things, and the concept of “work hard, play hard” has been engraved in the heads of many, but between all the partying till you blackout and working to your limit, when are we actually thinking that we should take some time for ourselves?


    Without further ado, I want to introduce to you seven ways to relax and to calm down.

        

    1. First and foremost, breath. I know it sounds obvious but ask any psychiatrist, breathing the right way is one of the best ways to calm down. There are many tutorials online to help you practice breathing. I strongly suggest the video on Ujjayi Breathing from Yoga With Adriene.
    2. Take a bath. I understand taking too many baths may be counterproductive on different levels. But once in a while, reading in your bath could stir up the most tranquil sentiments.  
    3. Chocolate with a cup of tea. It doesn’t have to be chocolate. Any sweet pick-me-up will do the trick. Trust me, it works.
    4. Light up some candles. I’m very sensitive to smell. Scents that are reminiscent of my childhood or of a certain memory will shift my depressive moods into a happy, peaceful one in a second.
    5. Watch your favorite T.V. series. We all know that there’s nothing that a good episode of Games of Thrones can’t cure. If one doesn’t work, make that two.
    6. Lavender spray is one the best and natural ways to calm down. Be extra careful if you are making your own lavender spray, make sure the essential oil you use is pure and of high quality. Also make sure to dilute it with lots of water. I would recommend buying the ready-made ones. The Australian Bridestowe bears are a stable at my house.
    7. Online shopping is also a good way to release the pressure. You can start treating yourself by going on to our online shop! Aren't these diamond shaped stones gorgeous to look at?!             

    Of course you don’t have to do exactly what I advised you to. I’m not here to give you more tasks. The real takeaway from this post is really to treat yourself like you would treat your loved ones. You are worth it.



    Love,


    Emma
