Blogger Q&A: Weesha

Name: WeeshaDubai, United Arab EmiratesWeesha’s WorldWho is your favorite fashion designer and why?I honestly don’t have one, I’m not crazy about labels. However, I dream of buying everything at Their designs are feminine, trendy, edgy and very flattering for curves. Apart from them, I think the designers behind New Look, Evans, Dorothy Perkins and H & M are doing a pretty good job.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without? Comfortable but stylish shoes. Shoes can make or break an outfit, right? and no one looks hot when they’re in pain haha.If you were allowed to create…

RiRi & the Fanny Pack

Is Rihanna trying to bring back the fanny pack? This is the first thing that came to mind yesterday, as I was looking over my favorite celeb site Just Jared. Look at RiRi looking all cute eating M&M’s in Dublin, Ireland. She makes casual look chic!I used to wear a fanny pack when I was little. They are really convenient and this D&G one is pretty hot. It say’s that it can even be worn as a cross-body bag. Hmmm??? RiRi is a fashionista and does wear pretty much whatever she wants. But do you think fellow fashionistas throughout the…

Make me blush!!

I must admit that I’m not the most beauty savvy gal out there. I’m still learning a lot about all the different makeup products out there.There is one product that I am dying to try. I would love to get my hands on a Tarte cheek stain. A.K.A. blush. Especially, their natural cheek stain. It’s formulated without all the bad stuff.Look at this pic of model Whitney Thompson, that’s what I’d imagine a cheek stain to do. It looks like a natural flush to me.Do you use a cheek stain? If so, which one and would you recommend it?

Alicia and Kryptonite

After seeing these pics of the gorgeous Alicia Keys, I started yearning for a hot pair of sunglasses. Not just any sunglasses, but a pair of square-ish shaped sunglasses. I don’t know what it is about me and this awesomely amazing accessory! This is the one item, that I don’t mind $pending money on. The pair of Coach sunglasses I have now are almost 3 years old. And they are still in great shape. I love them! I guess you can say that sunglasses are my kryptonite. Now, if only I can figure out what brand Alicia is wearing and…

It’s time to get bridal…

It’s wedding season!! Yay! I love weddings…actually I love…LOVE! I’m a sucker for love. I’m not ashamed to admit it. With love, sometimes comes marriage. Speaking of marriage, I just so happen to be a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding. I can’t wait. I’m super excited! Yesterday, we celebrated her “tea party” themed bridal shower. It was so much fun! Isn’t she beautiful!! She’s hilarious! Look it’s my mommy too! The wedding is next month, so stay tuned for more bridal pics to come!!If you’re on twitter, then you might have seen me tweeting about the dress I’m wearing. I…

Inspiration & Beauty

I just wanted to take a second and say thank you to the fearless and confident women out there, who don’t care what society thinks of their size.The models who started it all. Those who could care less if you call them curvy, thick, chubby, fat, or plus-size; but rather see it as a compliment. The women who know that the inside is just as important as the outside. You who celebrate the beauty of your body every day. You inspire me.

Blogger Q&A: Marianna

Marianna Chicago, IL & San Jose, CAAbsolutely AppleWho is your favorite fashion designer and why?Honestly, I can’t say that I have a favorite fashion designer as I generally don’t shop in that category. I do love the Michael by Michael Kors line, because of his simple, chic, and classic designs. His looks are very much my style, and they’re fairly affordable! Marc Jacobs’ designs are serious eye candy for me, though.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?A full face of makeup! I am one of those girls that cannot leave the house without makeup on. I feel…

Accessorizing with a Summer Hat

If there’s one thing I’ve figured out ,while writing this blog, it’s that I don’t wear enough hats. Hats are an accessory a lot of us might not think about when putting together a spring or summer look. Which is kind of funny, because in the early 1900’s it was considered disgraceful to walk outside of your home without a hat and a pair of gloves! Imagine?Today, there are many different styles of hats. You might have even seen a lot of fashionistas out there wearing the straw panama or fedora hat. Cute, but I’m looking for a hat to…

Mish Mesh?

I’ve been seeing a lot of mesh around lately…and I wondered if I was daring enough to wear it. I think I would if it was on a shoe. These are really HOT and could add enough punch to any outfit. Very daring!What do you think? Mesh or Not?
