Friday, July 6, marks International Kissing Day. This means the challenge is on: How many people can you kiss today?
You heard us.
We’re talking about an entire day to celebrate the sport of making out. Yes, you wish we were making this up. But we’re not. International Kissing Day is a real thing. It was established in 2006 to “focus on the kissing that takes place between lovers and to celebrate the place it holds in our society.”
Experts advise that this is not just about romantic kissing. It’s also about general kissing in our culture and society: Kissing on each cheek, greeting family, or kissing goodbye.
We’re going with the first one: Hot, randy sessions with your partner, your spouse, your significant other, or just the guy in line at Raising Canes. (This is your opening, ladies!)
This is the perfect opportunity to pretend you’re the Bachelorette and swap spit with all you encounter. Grab your z-pack, and gear up. But first things first: Make sure you’re kissable.
Come see us
Know that even if you’re doling out tongue for free, it’s still important to look your best. Whether you just need some upkeep, or you want something new, make an appointment. Of course, we can do the basic cut and color. But which style, and what color? Kissing is about opening your lips heart to new total strangers experiences, and so is exploring our color and highlighting options, Keratin treatments, extensions, waxing, updos, or brow and lash tints. We are full service, which mean you can make out with a whole new look. Get it?
Amp up your products
Another way to look your kissable best? Revisit your bathroom and see which is older – your oldest child, or your hair gel? Products expire ladies, and even if yours still have shelf life, they may not be the best ones you could be using. Chemistry has changed, and there are tools out there that can control frizz, reverse damage, add volume and shine, and make color last.
Remember, good looks don’t come naturally. They come in a bottle!! Come in, consult with us, and stock up. Then carry home your new miracle workers with class and confidence. Like in this Mamuye Leather Tote.
Get on your toes
Finally, in celebration of International Kissing Day, join us in embracing the cliché tippy-toe kissing stance.
According to our Google-prowess, this is a common kissing pose. And women are apparently always four inches too short and often without proper foot ware.
Regardless, the Internet says we like these tip-toe kisses. But on this special day, take steps to make them easier. Let’s say by wearing these adorable Brown Leather Platform Wedges.
They’re lightweight and cushioned, for more comfort for your kissing. And they feature a 3 ¼ inch wedge heel, which means you’ll be able to make out in style, without a visit to your podiatrist.
In conclusion, ladies…
The time has come. The time is now. Take immediate action to make yourself kissable. Grab that Emergen-C and use this day to suck some serious face. It’s International Kissing Day. Apply lipstick and handle it. Hey, that would make a great shirt.
Oh, the controversy. Everywhere you look and every channel you flip to. Politics stink. But America is still great! And soon it will be time to celebrate! Independence Day is almost here. To make sure you have choices for your red, white and blue, we are, of course, here for you.
Red – Hardiness and valor
What’s the story behind the colors of our nation? Well, the legend goes that George Washington was very smitten with the red allure of Martha’s lips and always preferred she stain them with a certain berry only found near the Potomac. And that’s why the colors of America began with red.
Oh, and that’s why we don’t drink when we write. Cause we lie!
The truth is red represents hardiness and valor. Yum, that’s good American stuff. If those traits resonate with you, skip the blue and white this season and go straight for the red. Say, in this oh so cute Red & White Circle Ruffle Top. Off the shoulder but with a slip-free lining, this holiday must-have will have you pledging allegiance.
White – Purity and innocence
Well, nothing says America like purity and innocence, but that’s what our founding fathers were going for when they chose white. Regardless, we’re going to embrace it this 4th of July, like in these crisp and sexy White Shipman Pants. High-waisted and full-legged, these bottoms bring liberty and beauty to all.
Blue – Vigilance, perseverance and justice
And finally: Blue. This color represents America’s fighting spirit, and it can represent yours too. Wear it with strength, wear it with pride. Like in this Navy Tunic Dress. Its delicate cutouts and cinched waist make for a liberal fit, while the full short sleeves make it ideal for any conservative celebration. It’s simple, sexy, and in line with our own domestic policy: Walk softly and wear a great dress.
Torn about whether you’re hardy, pure, or vigilant? Combine your red, white and blue for a look that will rock any celebration. And we don’t mean like this:
Doh! Everyone knows Snug Sacks are too hot in July. It’s summer, ladies!
There are real ways to dress for the season that actually match the weather of the season. Like in this charming Striped Tassel Halter. You’ll love the flattering cut, the front tassel, and the racerback back. Check it out!
Another great red, white and blue look: The Moon River Dress, available in store right now. Pair it with a duster or alone, this frock will have others saluting!
Looking for something more casual? Try the Denim Plaid Oversized Shirt. Wear it as a dress or a shirt. It’s comfortable and cozy without being sloppy. People will love it so much, they’ll shoot off fireworks!
In conclusion, Independence Day is coming. Celebrate by wearing colors that mean something, in styles that mean you’re serious about looking great. Or skip the colors all together and dress to express the thoughts you really mean — like the importance of that afternoon cocktail. We’ve got that too.
It always seems like old news, doesn’t it? School’s out, the pool is open, and it’s 100 degrees out. Yet, just right now is the official start to summer. Regardless, this means we can tell you officially why you need to shop now.
First: The water is calling.
It’s time to dive in and head right to your nearest pool, lake or, err, city fountain. But although the schedules are slower and the mood is relaxed, this is not an occasion to slack off. People are watching.
Okay, maybe not this guy. But others are. And you want to look your best. Whether you’re pool-side, lake-side, or sprinkler-side, a great way to rock your summer is with these great ideas for coverups.
This ivory crochet poncho is sheer sass. You can wear it over a bralette or bando. And importantly, you can wear it over your suit. Let people know you’re an expert at more than juice boxes and lunchables. You also know style.
Another look that’s great for a coverup? The Black & Cream Pattern Duster. This lightweight frock has a fun pattern and finished details. It’s easy to throw on over your suit or over shorts. You’ll want to wear it all summer long. Officially.
One more idea? Say yay to crochet. This hot number, the Moss Crochet Knit Dress, can be worn over a tank and jeans, and of course over your suit for a sexy, vintage beach vibe.
Second: Rethink that sweater.
That’s right! It’s still sweater weather. And we have the perfect one for hitting the pool. Right here, ladies!
Okay. We’re kidding. This sweater suit is clearly meant for the lake.
Alright, honestly. No, we don’t condone this look and we’re terrified at what can be found on the Internet. But, we are serious about sweaters and sweater-like looks. Why? Because they make great coverups (especially if you’ve already bought a hair suit).
For example, check out this Snake Print Kimono Cardigan. This looks great over any outfit year-round. And in the summer it makes for a sexy, statement-piece coverup. Ssssssss-sister, you’ll love this!
Third: Take the right steps.
With the official start of summer, we have to take a moment to warn you of the shoe pitfalls. There are many, but we’re here to guide you through them. Here are a few looks not to pursue.
Super shocks. We get it, you’re active. You have to get to the office, and to swim team, and to Target. All in 30 seconds. But there’s more to summer than speed. And if your first criteria for footwear involves rubber and Velcro, please jump back!
Painful steppers. While it’s hard to envision yourself watching Mork and Mindy in any other shoe, we must stop you there. These lethal numbers shouldn’t have been legal in 1982, and they certainly have no business here in 2018. If these wood clompers are in your closet, please toss them now. Or just leave them in the path of your worst enemy – so they can step on them sideways.
Rubber jellies. Summer can make it tempting to wear light-hearted shoes and explore your frivolous side. But no. No, no, no. We can practically see the bacteria forming and we can hear the shoes squeaking. Unless you’re four, please pass on these rubber beauties.
Finally: Take it to new heights.
Of course, we’re here to tell you what you should wear instead, and we have some great shoe ideas. We’re not talking flipflops or strappy flats. We’re talking high wedges that bring a touch of elegance and sexiness to every summer outfit!
All these looks let you combine the fun of sandals with the glamour of heels. They’re comfy and classy, and chances are we have your size. Grab yours now for some extra height on the patio, in the beer garden, or in line at the concession stand.
So ladies, summer is here, but the clock is ticking. You have, in some cases, only eight weeks left. Officially. Get out there and take in the heat with style that sizzles. Visit us online, or swing by. We’ll wear our best suit.
No more teachers, no more books! Whether you made the long grinding crawl through final exams, or the long grinding crawl through the carpool lines, you made it! Summer’s here and it’s time to celebrate all your accomplishments. We’ve got 5 ways to reward yourself in style.
Wrap it up with bracelets.
First, toss out the backpacks, notebook paper, and schedules. Log off the parent portals, and call it a year. An ideal way to wrap it up is with a new bracelet. We’ve got beads, charms, bangles and cuffs. We especially love this Kantha Coiled Bracelet. It gives you all the colors and textures of wearing layers of bling — all in a single piece. That means it’s a great look for less work. And work, dear friends, is over.
Seriously: The grades, the field trips, the permission slips. You survived them all. And now you can say, bag it. And by that we mean, with a new bag! Take off for the weekend (or anytime now!) with the Alem Cognac Weekender (Cognac not included).
Or toss out the old beat-up backpack and replace it with this one – it’s 100% paper. It looks cool, it reduces the environmental impact, and the material is sustainable (unlike your ability to pack one more lunch).
Show some leg.
Another way to treat yourself? Ditch the pencils for a pencil skirt. This look is classy, but with a little frayed detail that shows you appreciate school is out!
Or, embrace summer vacation with a frey edge denim skirt. It’s short and flattering, without being trashy. Wear it to end-of-year picnics or drinks on the patio. It’s perfect.
Another thing: When school’s out it means the sun’s out. And heat exhaustion is just plain exhausting. It’s time for us bitches to keep drinking – water, kool-aid, wine, whatever you need. You deserve it. This great bottle will keep you hydrated, and make everyone afraid to steal it. It’s yours, damn it!
Finally, rejoice that it’s the end of the school year and the start of summer. Remember that the best thing you can do right now is to breath and be grateful. Another year is over, and the next one will be here in, say, 12 weeks. Slow down and enjoy it.
If you need help taking it all in stride, come in and grab yourself a Gratitude jar. Gratitude will change everything from a stressed schedule to a bad vacation. Practice it daily and see your mood lift. Fill it with snacks and you’ll feel even better.
There you have it. Summer’s here and you have 30 seconds before you see your first back-to-school ads. Don’t waste them. Come in today or shop online to celebrate your wonderful self. You did it, girlfriend!
Moms! They’re the best things ever. Always there for you, putting their needs aside to take care of yours. That’s good news for you. But for them, all that wear and tear can start to show. Make this Mother’s Day the best by helping her regain that glow she once had. You know, that beauty that actually led to your birth. Give back already, will you? Nixon & Co can help!
If your mom is like moms everywhere, she never buys things for herself. She buys crap for you. And what she doesn’t buy you, you flat out take from her. This is why mom drinks. On Mother’s Day, reverse this trend. We can help you with that.
Check out these beautiful Beljoy bracelets. They’re classic just like mom. They’re also a product of Beljoy, which creates jewelry-making jobs for the people of Haiti. Beljoy works to restore dignity and inspire change. That’s a cause mom would be proud of.
Another treasure she’ll love: These lovely leather clutches. Nothing thanks mom more for all her heavy lifting than giving her something nicer to carry. Check out the colors and styles. Want to make it even better: Enclose a gift certificate to the salon or boutique. Redeemable for a color, cut, or whatever she finds in store – it’s a gift that might just redeem you.
What does mom want as much as cool stuff? She wants time with you. Although you’re needy and creating gray hairs, she loves your company. Show her you care by planning a shopping extravaganza. Make a day of it. South Denver ladies, take her to breakfast at the Egg & I, then stop by Nixon & Co – open Monday through Saturday – to look for treasures.
Check out all that’s in store here. Treat her to something special, and – whether you’re a mom or not yourself – get something for you too. You deserve it.
But suppose mom lives far away. Or perhaps you’re just not up to seeing her in person. We get it. We’ll even drink to that. Regardless, you can shop Nixon & Co’s online boutique. Check out all these great gift ideas. Point, click and ship. Happy Mother’s Day: Done and done.
Finally, after all the wrinkles you’ve caused her, you can give mom the gift of beauty. Schedule an appointment or get her a gift certificate for a cut or color. Don’t forget, Nixon & Co is full service, which means she can also opt for keratin treatments, extensions, waxing, or a brow or lash tint. We can rebuild her. We have the technology.
And you can restore all the damage you’ve caused. Ha Ha!
Alas, with so many options for Mother’s Day at Nixon & Co, you can be the new you – the kid mom always wanted. Be the favorite. Be the best. Make every one of those stretch marks worth it. As moms, we’re telling you: It’s the very least you can do. Really.
So, to all the moms out there – you, us, yours, and ours – Happy Mother’s Day. Make it a new day. Treat yourself. You’re beautiful. You got this. Follow my blog with Bloglovin
We recently came across the line: “May is like the Friday of summer.” OMG! Why are we just now hearing this? Of course it is! The whole season stands before us, and May is just the beginning. And what kicks off May better than Cinco de Mayo? It’s time to fiesta, ladies, and we have cinco hot dresses to rock any Cinco de Mayo celebration and start the summer like it’s Friday night!
Numero Uno: Come fly away
In addition to its promise of three more months of sun, another thing we love about May is its ease. Schedules wind down, weather warms up. It’s the perfect time to show your true colors with this adorable Butterfly Off Shoulder number. This dress is so perfect for dress-up occasions, you’ll want to go to graduation parties of people you don’t even know.
Fear it’s too much, too soon? Cover the shoulders underneath with a sexy bralette, or add skinny jeans or leggings. Just bare what you dare!
Get a dose of ruffles with Numero Dos
Another favorite is the Lilac Ruffle Dress. This look has us rolling our R’s with relish. It’s soft and feminine, but with the sex appeal that creates a ripple effect of rave reviews. The line is flattering, the bottom is flared, and the ruffles tell the world you’re ready to make waves.
Numero Tres is style and grace
No mom, we don’t need lady bug patches or rick-rack down our sleeves. Dress number three is sophisticated embroidery! This stitchin’ is bitchen’ with fine detailed patterns along both arms. The look is hip, and the needlework is so sharp your mother will approve. Pair it with leggings or with some amazing shoes, and you’ll be ready for any Cinco Celebration.
We are loco for Numero Quatro
Bare or with leggings, this Patterned Pink Lace dress is adorable. Picture yourself sipping a cervesa or mixing the guac in this fun, flowing frock. It’s forgiving but not engulfing, light-hearted but not girlish, and easy but not sloppy. This dress has us lifting our margarita glasses! Or maybe we were doing that anyway.
Numero Cinco is a definite go go
Last but not least is the Must Have Navy Bohemian dress. By Bohemian, we don’t mean sex and drugs. Although this dress could attract both. Instead we mean informal. Unconventional. Artistic. And creative. All great virtues that thrive in this great frock. It’s perfect for pursuing your life of music, art, and literature. Or just relaxing at your favorite wine bar. This dress lets U B U.
So ladies, start your summer. May is here with Cinco de Mayo, annoying “May the Fourth” jokes, Mother’s Day, and the opening of patio bars everywhere. And Nixon & Co has all the looks to celebrate every event in style. Shop today!
