Who: Desire’ Falk What: Darling, be Daring DARLINGBEDARING.COM / @DESIREFALK Fashion lover Desire’ Falk’s Darling, be Daring blog began several years ago as a creative outlet where she could get all of her ideas out on paper (or on screen). Since then, the site and Falk’s corresponding Instagram page have reached new heights. Today, Darling, be Daring is a women’s lifestyle blog that is all things girly and glam. A little fashion, a little travel, beauty, and health. “I want it to feel like a conversation with my girlfriends - a chat over some wine and pizza and a space that I can be me and you can be you,” she explains. “No apologies. Darling, be Daring; because no day should be a waste of perfectly good lipstick.” Describe your personal style in four words... Classic, romantic, girly, and mood based

Who: Carolina Hellal What: Chic Talk CHICTALKCH.COM / @CHICTALKCH The aptly named Chic Talk serves as the online hub for Latina beauty Carolina Hellal’s style, love of fashion, travel adventures, beauty tips and life as a new mom. Readers can expect weekly style inspiration, blog posts featuring Hellal’s favorite clothing and beauty brands, outfit ideas and, now that the brunette beauty is a mother, plenty of baby content. Why did you start your blog and how has it evolved over the years? I started my blog inspired by a few fashion bloggers I was following at the time. I remember reading their blog posts every day and thinking that I wanted to create a space where I could share my vision, too. I’ve always loved fashion and seeing their work inspired me so much to start my own blog and use it as a creative outlet. At the beginning it was solely about fashion but over the years blogging has become my full time job and Chic Talk has evolved into a lifestyle platform where I share multiple topics including beauty, home decor, motherhood, style and a little about my personal life.

Most treasured item in your wardrobe? My YSL crossbody bag. It was the first designer handbag I purchased and it’s very special to me. Who is your ultimate style icon? Caroline de Maigret Five dream dinner party guests? Sarah Jessica Parker, Meryl Streep, Carolina Herrera, Aimee Song and Michelle Obama Favorite Cherry Creek restaurant? Hillstone Favorite places to shop in Cherry Creek? Nordstrom is my go-to store because I can find most of my favorite brands in one place, but I also love Zara and Aritzia. Most needed store that Denver currently does not have? Mango
