Skating Couture: Highlights of some of the figure skating costumes seen at the NHK Trophy 2015, Nagano Japan

This past weekend was the last of six events on the 2015-2016 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating competitions in advance of the Grand Prix Finals. The event was the 2015 NHK Trophy and it was held in Nagano, Japan. I've covered my Figure Skating Costumes Highlights of 2015 Skate Canada HERE, 2015 Cup of China HERE, and the 2015 Rostelecom Cup of Russia HERE, so now, of course, it's time to talk about some of the costumes from 2015 NHK Trohpy.

The 65th Annual Miss World Beauty Pageant kicked off last week in Sanya Hainan Island, People's Republic of China. The finals of the 2015 Miss World will be on December 19th. Coincidentally, the other International beauty pageant "biggie", the Miss Universe 2015 pageant finals will occur the following day, December 20th--in Las Vegas Nevada USA. So, in terms of beauty pageants and beauty pageant followers, that will be a big weekend! For this year's Miss World, over 100 contestants from all over the world are vying for the coveted title (minus Miss Canada World who was not allowed to enter China).

The fifth in the 2015-2016 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating competition event was held this past weekend: the 2015 Rostelecom Cup of Russia. The competition was held at the Small Sports Arena of Luzhniki in Moscow Russia.

Lanzarote Holiday: Photos from my "holiday" in Lanzarote, the Canary Islands

After my QVC UK debut in London and a few days of sightseeing and shopping there, and then subsequently a quick stop in Madrid Spain, David and I then had a goal: TO GET AWAY! And have a mini-holiday. It's been a long time since we did that so we thought "Where in Europe...IN NOVEMBER...could we go where it was SUNNY and we could do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING??"  Before we left to Europe, back in our home in L.A., we researched and researched--online--"Europe...November...Sunny...Where?" And every site kept coming up with "Canary Islands". Done and done...

Madrid Collage: Nick Verreos and David Paul--Madrid Spain November 2015

After we left London (Click HERE for that blog), David and I flew to Spain. We went to the cosmopolitan and very chic city of Madrid. I had been here before with my family but this was David's first time so this is why we came here. Madrid was wonderful! It made me step up my style game...those madrileños dress very well! Especially the abuelitas!

A couple of weeks ago, I was in London for the Debut of my NV Nick Verreos clothing line on QVC UK. Naturally I went with my better half--David Paul. We had been here before, several years back, and did the requisite tourist visits to Westminster Abbey, the Victoria & Albert Museum plus much much more, so this time around for our short stay in London, we decided to just shop and make sure to go to the Mademoiselle Privé Exhibition
