KeraHealth Hair supplement with kercysteine - Karina Style Diaires

You guys know I'm all about healthy choices when it comes to food (although I have been making some shameful choices lately - must confess!!) such choices affect not only the health of our bodies but our hair, skin and nails as well. Like that saying goes "You are what you eat" I believe it 100% . Now some exceptions to this rule are genetics and diseases that are not necessarily related to eating habits, other than that we all need to get our acts together and make better choices! On the other hand though we can simplify the quest for healthy hair with a supplement that will deliver the nutritional components our hair needs the most right into its root! Quite literally :) I'm talking about the newest launch in the health and…

Palomino: Rustic European Cusine

I love a good dinner out, but then again who doesn't? Needless to say I'm always thrilled when I can partner with local places to feature their dinning menu on the blog (truly is my favorite part of blogging besides styling, yeah I'm a total foodie at heart!). Now truth be told if it was up to Brain that's what I would be blogging about, delicious food and charming restaurants!! Well what's best is when we can combine work with pleasure and call our dinner out an actual date! Last Friday we went to Palomino an upscale italian chain that serves heavenly thin-crust pizzas and other enticing Italiano style dishes!! Palomino is located in the heart of downtown Indy in a busy corner. They have such an authentic feel and a lovely setting, one that makes…

Le Méridien Indianapolis

There are many beautiful hotels but this iconic boutique hotel exceeded all of our expectations. In the heart of Downtown Indy lays this gem of a place with tons of history behind the building. Let me start by saying I'm still in awe after our incredible stay at the Le Meridien Indianapolis. If you are not familiar with the Le Meridien brand, it was founded in Paris in 1972 and joined the Starwood portfolio in 2005. I can tell you it carries that European understated and contemporary luxury in every room you set foot in. They are known for their award-winning arrival experience and coffee culture featuring an espresso machine in every room and check in area. (bonus points for that!!) A bit of history: Le Meridien Indy debuted in 2014 after a major…

Werther’s Original Caramel comes to Carmel, IN

I have to tell you that after soooo many years since having caramels tasting Werther's Original took me back to my childhood. Man oh man what a sweet moment!!! I used to buy these in my school cafeteria mid-morning and that sugar rush would carry me through the rest of the school day. Anyone have a memory like this with caramel chewies?? Gluing them on the roof of the mouth type thing?! Hehehe I did this too!!  So I'm happy to let you know I partnered with Werther's Original, THE authority on all things caramel to bring you a fun day in the city. Werther’s Original, is igniting a national debate on National Caramel Day, April 5, and asking Americans whether they pronounce the sweet treat Ker-uh-muhl or Kar-muhl to end the debate once and for all…

Brunchin’ Hard – Milktooth Indy

When life gets even crazier than the norm crazy we try to set time to catch up with the ladies and do some girl talk. At least that's what myself and a few friends are trying to do. Jumping on the brunch trend we go! Which btw it works sooooo much better for me now-a-days. Long gone are the happy hours and GNO's, and I have to say I'm kinda thrilled. You might share the same opinion or you'll understand when you see the delish gourmet dishes coming up.... We decided to try, and go out for brunch at least once a month. Once it's in the calendar we will most likely keep the date! For starters we chose Milktooth Indy because it's the talk of town and ranked by Conde Nast as one of the most…

What to gift the guy in your life?!

This question is a dilemma over here. I'm SUPER skeptical accepting gifts for hubs since he's not the typical "blogger husband" aka manager/photographer/social media assistant/ emotional blogger issue supporter. Don't take me wrong, he totally tries but he's a guy (insert laughs, or cries!). That being said he just doesn't get it (anyone can relate...please?!!). So when it comes to clients asking to review man stuff I usually stir away. Until SprezzaBox came along and man I was the one in total awe with their idea, packaging, and products! So you might be asking yourself what the heck is a Sprezzabox? They are "a New York City based company. For a man who is constantly on the go with work and family, they know that keeping up with trends can be difficult and expensive. SprezzaBox was designed to…
