As we settle into the new year, I know that a lot of retrospection has been ongoing for a lot of people. And for some others, in addition, reminiscing on the past year and all it brought along with it. It’s always a fun and spiritual thing to take stock of your life, especially over the previous year, make a gratitude list and show appreciation for the good things that crossed our path, and make adjustments where and when needed even as we forge ahead into the new year. And this is what this list is all about. A gratitude and projection list of the past year in terms of luxury items, Elixuer style.
- 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC AMG 43
While checking out this version, I saw another blinged-out version that looks as though it fell out straight from car heaven! This is the sort that good cars are made of. As a Mercedes lover and owner over the years, I’m always on the lookout for new editions and the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLC AMG 43 did not disappoint. Besides the usual features of previous editions, this edition comes in black leather interior and a shiny gloss red exterior. It’s truly a sight to behold, a dream to drive, and without a doubt one of my favourite items of last year.
- Guess Watch
When it comes to luxury, Guess has got to be the leader of affordability in terms of quality and class of accessories it produces. This watch is the best friend of any luxury jewellery lover. Its gold cladded strap wraps around your wrists sturdy and firm. It’s embellished with rhinestones for a complete stylish, glamourous, and chic look, yet, you won’t have to break the bank to acquire one. What’s more it comes with a two year warranty on the timepiece itself.
- Pashion Footwear
When Haley Pavone set out to start Pashion footwear, she was on a mission to ensure that women’s feet are prioritized in footwear. Away with that mentality of “suffer for beauty” ideology that women have been subjected to for years in the name of luxury footwear. With Pashion, you have to go from casual, to dressy, and luxurious, in a matter of minutes just by combining and flipping on and off a heel and sole. How ingenious! What’s more, these luxurious pairs of footwear are averagely priced for the lover of elegance and class.
- Aldo Panther-head Earrings
Aldo bags have been setting the pace in high fashion for decades with groundbreaking designs and versatility of styles. But the Aldo panther head earrings is a wonder that genius jewellery designs are made of. Comes in different varieties, styles and colours, the circle panther head in gold and green diamante sequins is a stylish addition to any ensemble for the fashion-conscious.
Jumpsuits are the sort of outfits that let you slay while keeping you comfy and warm especially in this season. You can go a bit further and accessorize with ankle boots for that final finish to stand out in a crowd. The white Rania blazer jumpsuit by Dynamite comes complete with a waist belt and is the perfect look for that dinner or evening get together with friends and colleagues alike. There’s just something elegant about showing up in an all-white ensemble.
The summer of 2023 ensured that this fashion accessory was not missing in my wardrobe, and I dare say for a lot of people as well. Beautiful and classy, the best sort of sunglasses are usually uv-ray lenses and framed with wide high-bridge fit designs for a stand-out look, just like the Prada PR 16RS Heritage.
This range of perfumes draws you in and draws others in to you as well. You just have to love fragrances made as a layer-on to other sweet smelling scents in their range. Comes in various scents, the KAYALI perfumes are made for the fragrance lover, plus it’s guaranteed to leave you smelling good for longer hours, drawing all the attention you need. Try on their Déjà Vu White Flower in their vanilla range for a better understanding of what these perfumes are made of.
- Electric Fireplace
If you‘re a home décor enthusiast like me, then the Vitesse 50 inch Ultra-Thin Electric Fireplace as a piece of décor item is one of the most stylish items you’d have in your home. This remote controlled wall mount fireplace can be placed underneath your TV set if you choose, or affixed on another wall in the living room, preferably next to a wall mount bookcase for a calmer relaxation feel. Technically, a heater, but the aesthetics and feel give off the illusion of a fireplace, more so the fire changes colour as it burns just like real burning wood would.
I cannot be the only one who enjoys the lush feeling that a robe gives when wrapped around the body. Clothed with or without anything else underneath, house robes are made for relaxation, comfort, and style in mind. The Dolce and Gabbana long sleeve bathrobe will have you in your elements, feeling like a princess made for the soft life. Now imagine yourself wrapped in one, a glass of bubbly in one hand, and with the other indulging in pieces of chocolates and strawberries as you take deep gentle breaths!
