Bali Comfort-U Back Review

Finding the perfect bra is probably one of our biggest headaches. Especially, if you’re a curvy woman with a larger chest.So, when I was contacted to try Bali’s Comfort-U Back bra I was pretty excited. This new line features the beautiful Helena Christensen and boasts about the straps and the back of the bra staying in place. You know I had to try it out.They sent me the Flower Bali Underwire bra.

Simply Simple

My hubby and I went out last night for a pre-bithday date night. Nothing fancy, so I just threw on a comfy and simple outfit and my hair in a bun. We went to eat at one of my fave resturaunts-Chyn King on 3rd/La Brea in L.A. So yummy! Then we went to the Little Bar…love this place. It was a chill night…one of my favorite kind of nights. Then I just sat there and counted down until midnight…second by second…until I was a year older. Blah! It’s OK…age is nothing but a number anyways. Lol. Right?Dress: Xhilaration, Target (on…

Blah!!Anywhoo…that won’t stop me from lusting after great fashion pieces, like the ones I’ve chosen from Evans below. Sigh…

The nail polish is OPI’s Hong Kong collection “Jade is the New Black” and the lipstick is Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lipstick in “Super.” I need the nail polish!! I found it on Amazon for $2.50!!

Style Trend: Leopard Print

Grrrrrrrrrrr…its all about leopard prints! That was my sad attempt of some kind of cat growl…lol. I’ve seen tons of chicas wearing it lately and this sexy print will pretty much always be in style. It’s fun and adventurous…just don’t be afraid to wear it. If you think it’s too much, just try adding an accessory with this print to a solid black outfit. Bring out the feisty gal!
