Style and Optical Illusion

Trivia time!  Take a look at the group of lines below and select the longest in length; I will wait.


Did you conclude all of the lines are equal? If so, you are correct!

Although, it may appear the 4th line (from left to right) is longer, it does not change the lines length.

This strategy can be applied to how we “suit” our bodies when it comes to clothing.  Take a look at the graphic below how one outfit can give two separate messages.  The cinched waist displays a stark difference from a visual perspective and gives a cleaner more balanced effect.

Capturing the right optical effect is all about balance.

Likewise, the example below is a simple a-line dress. The illustration with the dropped waist makes the mannequin’s torso appear longer; creating a big difference to the body type and shape.


The same difference is notable with horizontal (parallel) and vertical (Upright) lines too.


Upright lines give the body a slimmer appearance.  In contrast, parallel lines will create girth. The good thing is there are ways to keep illusions to a minimum through size and again placement.

Tricks such as these are used by Wardrobe Stylist to give the best effect possible to any body type.

Let’s peek at a couple more examples to ensure the power of placement sinks in…



The next time you treat yourself to a little retail therapy; take these tips with you to select garments that will only benefit your wardrobe. By understanding horizontal and vertical lines or slanted and zig-zag know they create the shape of you through the magic of proper placement.

Meet Adriana Aronet and La Aronet Royelle Microfiber Luxury Hair Towel


Adriana Aronet is a small-town girl with a rich Romanian history.  Her new luxury product speaks to her personal style and eye for beauty, vision, and development.

Join us as we dig deeper into this amazing engineer turned beauty designer while she shares a piece of history and her desire to impact the world through simplistic beauty.

Tell us more about Adriana: Where are you from? How did you grow up? Were you always into beauty?

I am born and raised in Romania, the beautiful country of Dracula. That’s what it is mostly known for but it has so many beauties: the sea, beaches, mountains, castles, amazing buildings, and squares. And tourists are very welcomed here so I would invite anyone to visit. I am sure they will love it and will leave with amazing experiences and memories.

I grew up in a small, beautiful city surrounded by hills and forest in the western part of the country. I am grateful for a loving family who always made sure that I received the best education and encouraged me to be my own person. After high school, I moved to a bigger city and received my three degrees in International Relations, European Studies, and Medical Engineering. I worked for a few years as a Mechanical Engineer, but I always dreamed of building something of my own. I think we are offered opportunities in life and it’s in our power to recognize and seize them. That is exactly what I did. I didn’t know anything about this type of business or any business for that matter. I had to learn everything from zero, but I made a commitment to give it my all. So, I quit my job and started learning and working on my dream. I took a business class, read everything that I could find and started building LA ARONET brand. Now thinking back I’m amazed of all I’ve been through, it was as exciting as it was challenging.

I’ve always been told by people around me that I have an eye for beauty, especially interior design and fashion. I have decorated a few homes so far and I’m always asked by people to help them shop which I enjoy. I have always loved looking for amazing furniture, decorations, and outfits, and for as long as I can remember I have been able to put pieces together that work great. I guess that’s what happens with things we love, it becomes automated; a part of us.

When did you realize you wanted to become an entrepreneur?

I think I always wanted to be an entrepreneur, but I wasn’t completely aware of it. Everyone around me had a “real” job and I felt that is what I must do, too. It was automatically printed in my mind. After a few years at my “real” job as a Mechanical Engineer, which I really liked, it became clear to me that the only limitations I have are made by myself. I felt I could always come back to engineering and I should follow this opportunity and make a leap of faith.

What is the meaning behind LA ARONET; how do you pronounce it?

“LA” means “to” in Romanian and “ARONET” is my family name. It’s unique because it’s only in my family and I felt a personal touch would be appropriate for my European brand. I wanted to have a little mystery for the name.

What part does “Royelle” play in the brand?

Royelle is the first product of the brand. A lot of brainstorming and work was put into creating a high-quality product that inspires elegance, functional luxury and sophistication starting with the name. The idea for the name started with royalty, queens, princesses, castles and ended up as a combination of the words “royal” and “elle” (which is “she” in French).

Why the hair towel first?

At the beginning, I looked at a lot of different products, but in the end, I choose the hair towel because I felt a stronger connection towards it and I could see its future easily. The opportunity was clear to me. I could not find a suitable hair towel on the market that was elegant and beautiful. Even though functionality is important, we are women and we need to feel beautiful, too.

Who do you think would love Royelle?

I think all women should feel beautiful, healthy, and pampered, so I think all women could benefit from Royelle.  It is great for women who are concerned about the health of their hair, women on the go, women who want to feel luxurious and spoiled, or women who want to save a little time for themselves and just relax.

Is Royelle good for everyday use? 

I highly recommend it, especially for everyday use. Washing your hair and blow-drying it daily will lead to damaged hair. You will lose all the natural protective oils of your hair that keep it shiny and healthy.  Without oil, your cuticles become dry, fragile, and rigid which will eventually lead to breakage. Using LA Royelle will guaranty the health of your hair.  It absorbs excess water and reduces blow-drying by at least half the time. It’s very lightweight and stays in place, which means your hair won’t be pulled and you’ll see fewer short hairs around your hairline.  Regular hair towels are bulky, heavy, and are constantly slipping down and pulling your hair, which will result in damaged and frizzy hair.

You can also use Royelle to protect your hair from getting wet while taking a hot bath, or while relaxing in a jacuzzi or at the spa. I always find my hair is in the way at the spa and Royelle helps me to keep it dry and clean, especially when I get facials or massages and oil is involved. Royelle also can be used for overnight treatments. I love to give my hair a deep, nourishing natural European treatment.  I have added my European Beauty Secrets card included with every Royelle product for various types of hair.

Can you share with us, why LA ARONET Royelle should be a must have for everyone’s hair care and their beauty regimen?

Blow drying can damage hair in many ways: split ends, frizzy hair, dulled shine, dryness, extreme breakage and more. Royelle Microfiber Luxury Hair Towel keeps hair healthier by holding its natural shine and vitality and will reduce blow-drying time by half.

Regular towels are bulky, heavy, they pull your hair and water drips everywhere. Royelle is lightweight and works for all hair types and lengths, and best of all, the more you use it the better your hair will look and feel.

I love making women look and feel beautiful, so every Royelle Microfiber Luxury Hair Towel includes complementary natural European Beauty Secrets so that you and your hair can always be beautiful and healthy.

What luxury items inspire you?

I am inspired by beauty in general; everything from spas to nice hotels to beautiful shoes or jewelry. My creativity is born out of what I see everywhere around me in all my experiences and travels. I am always paying close attention to details. I think luxury consists in detail, quality and feeling spoiled.

What do you wish for each woman to get out of using your products?

Besides the functional and health benefits, I want all women to be reminded of their beauty and the importance of taking time for themselves.

We should all feel beautiful! We each know exactly what makes us feel that, either that is nice clothes, shoes, jewelry or a hair towel that reminds us we are beautiful, we should make time for ourselves to relax and enjoy our lives.

How would you describe the overall feel of your brand?

LA ARONET  was founded in the beautiful buildings, squares, and fashions of Europe that inspired a passion for luxury that could bring the world to you. Royelle embodies this commitment to the experience of beauty and functionality. LA ARONET is all about empowering women to feel beautiful. We create high-quality products that have functional beauty. We are committed to making all women feel beautiful. One of the pillars of the brand is its European heritage. Europe is associated with elegance, beauty, and sophistication. LA ARONET appeals to women who would like to feel that they have those same qualities when they used it.

LA ARONET European-style style, grace and Je ne sais quoi to all.

Since you are a woman of many environments, could you ever see yourself relocating from your home in Romania?

Yes, I do. I love to travel. A big dream for me is to be able to travel the world and spend at least a few months in each place I visit. I love seeing new places and learn about different cultures. It gives me pure joy, positive vibes, and a tremendous inspiration. My inspiration comes from what I’ve seen and experienced so far.

Why the beauty industry?

I think the beauty industry choose me in a way. It came to me naturally and I just said yes. The universe puts opportunities in front of us, we just must have our eyes and hearts open. I enjoy multiple activities and hobbies and I always had trouble finding my big passion. My solution and recommendation in case you have the same struggle is to stop losing priceless time trying to find it and start doing.  It’s like writer Terri Trespicio said, “You don’t follow your passion, passion follows you”.

Many successful people have learned, first, what it means to fail. What has been one of the toughest challenges during the journey building your luxury brand?

Taking a break. It’s not a joke. I’m always striving for perfection and when I get involved, I commit 100%. So, for me in was hard to learn there always is going to be work to do and I need to find a balance. I am still learning how to manage the workload since I find myself working long hours for my LA ARONET dream.

What advice would you give to any woman wanting to start a business now?

It’s very important to be aware of the difference between being an employee and having your own business. You must stay determined and able to keep a balance in your life. There will be amazing days and terrible days. It’s a journey.

I can’t stress enough how important is to surround yourself with people with the same mindset. Follow them, talk to them, meet them. It will be vital for keeping you on track and giving you the power to keep going.

Learn. Apply. Aim high.

What charities do you support and why is this important to you?

I think it’s so important to give back and help people around us as much as we can. Even small gestures can make the world so much better. Through the Amazon Smile program, a percentage of every Royelle purchased on Amazon goes to supporting Beauty Without Borders a non-profit organization dedicating to fostering confidence, intellectual growth, personal development, leadership, and independence in girls and young women.

What is next for LA ARONET?

I am very grateful for the amazing testimonials Royelle has received so far.  My heart is filled with joy seeing that I am bringing beauty and functional luxury to women across America. At this moment, I am working on expanding Royelle to spas, retreats, hotels and shops.  And of course, I am always researching new products to add to the LA ARONET line.

While the world is constantly changing, there are still some things that remain the same, such as an outfit’s last layer of style: nail polish. It is the accessory that can make or break a well-manicured look, the same as a pedicure that compliments a perfect open-toed shoe. Though we can expect that things will in fact change, we can begin to expect that some things also change for the better. Mauridi Cosmetic is proving this point by changing nail polish for the better with their new line of vegan polish.

Kamisol and For the Love of Style Magazine are hopping on the bandwagon, and uncovering Supreme Vegan Nail Lacquer by Mauridi Cosmetic, founded just that way – right on Vegan principles and ingredients. These colors are meant to suit every mood and tone as well as relax the soul, knowing you’re living up to vegan principles, right down to your fingertips and toes.

What allows these lush lacquers to steal the limelight is that they eliminate the ethical concerns that come along with animal-tested and chemical-latent products. As many of us move toward a more conscious and holistic lifestyle, it would be wise to grow your collection of vegan beauty products. Some of the ingredients used in today’s products are known to include more skin irritants and allergens as well as some other more harmful substances.

Mauridi’s Supreme Vegan Nail Lacquers aim to make the search for a good nail polish simple. These nail lacquers are not only hypo-allergenic but also toluene, paraben, formaldehyde, and cruelty-free. Now there’s no need to have to use a spa day as a “cheat” day ladies because you can indulge, guilt-free.

If there is any good advice to skincare, it is most definitely to moisturize. Mauridi Cosmetic’s Hydrate Mango Face Cream does just that. With a natural blend of 5 oils, shea butter, and antioxidant vitamin E, your skin will thank you. Wash, Tone, and Hydrate are part of an entire Botanical skin care line developed with the most sensitive skin in mind and we urge you to give it a try.

Style in Poetry…


Creative writing is much about floetry just like Marsha Ambrosius and The Floacist harmonized so well on the flo’ology of it all. 

Photo: Lebophoo

Poetry and style are contrived from an eternal movement and speak to who we are as individuals and creative thinkers.




Photo: Epiphany

…and through the power of words.


Art, style, poetry, and fashion serve major purposes in our lives and takes shape in the imagination of children at play or adults during moments of clarity; creative writing allows us to express ourselves and share unforgettable life experiences through word, style, and form.

Poetry is defined as “literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm”.

Finding your floetry, is much like creating a style temperature and, as, easy as this may sound it’s an art and skill to it.

Many poems can make one feel as though the writer or performer is speaking directly to them. Why, because communication is a vital part of our existence and speaks on so many ways.

Photo: Pinterest

In order to help get you started channeling the poet within here are 3 top things you want to remember about writing in style:

1) First, remember poetry is an expressive language (even though we use literary techniques, we are focusing more on our ability to express)

2) commonly used techniques in poetry are incorporated in our everyday conversations [imagery: creating mental pictures that appeal to the senses, and metaphors: comparison between two things that are unrelated, but share the same characteristics]

3) express yourself and using techniques are only half of the process, the other half is what we have experienced in our lives. (Take the area you are an expert in and act as if you are trying to explain the terminology to a toddler).

Photo: SegmentNext

And please do not allow yourself to get snagged by the “technicalities” perfection just like the blurry image above is not perfect, but effective (did you notice).

Simply work towards flowing a oneness in the art of expression and creativity that works for you.
Today, just enjoy the process of poetry it is great for our health and wellness so try this – take a moment and as yourself:

‘moments of clarity come when I am”……..


Please know nothing is off limits and every experience is relevant. set no limits, find your floetry and it can be as clear or as blurry as you define it for now.

If you are interested we would love to hear your story from the exercise by commenting blow.

My name is Ashley “Epiphany” Hodges, and I’m out…
