Beauty Buzz: Two Faced Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection

It’s no secret that I’m not a makeup guru when it comes to eye shadow. I always stare in amazement at my cousin’s makeup. She’s amazing and can create the perfect eye.

One day I will learn how to create the perfect eye! So, until then, I think I need to buy the Too Faced Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection. Seriously? Isn’t this delish? It even comes with a tutorial, for gals like me. I got an email from Sephora today and it’s selling this $73 value for $35! Need it now!

Do you own this Too Faced palette?


Beauty Buzz: Beach Tousled Waves

Do you want those beach tousled waves without going to the beach? This is one of my favorite hairstyles. It’s a simple style and it’s the classic “California Girl” look. There are even products out there specifically made for “beach waves.” Doesn’t Jessica Simpson look lovely?

I found this easy tutorial on eHow:

Step 1 Wash and condition hair

– don’t over condition!

Step 2 Apply hair product, such as Frederick Fekkai Summer Hair Beach Waves all over hair. Blow dry hair

using fingers only, scrunching as your dry.

Step 3 If you need extra curl, take a medium barrel curling iron and curl only the top of hair, starting mid-shaft.

Step 4 Flip hair upside down and toss hair with fingers to loosen curls. Spray a fine layer of hairspray and flip back. Use fingers to “tame” down any wild strands. Beautiful!

    Bank Breaker V$. Bargain

    Most of us dream of carrying a hot designer bag on our arm. But, what if you can’t afford one? I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford those high priced beauties. I get out there and find a designer-inspired handbag. I found this gorgeous Lanvin Amalia bag, but it’s going to cost you $3,105.00 at Barney’s New York. Now, that’s a “Bank Breaker!” Scroll down to find out where the “Bargain” bag comes from.

    The “Bargain” bag is the Audrey Leatherette bag from Forever 21 and costs a whopping $22.80. It’s definitely inspired by Lanvin’s design with it’s quilted look, front pocket, and its chain and ribbon wrapped handle.

    Would you buy the “Bargain” bag?

    I love when I come across a plus-size line that I’ve never heard of. Like today, I was browsing Bloomindales.com and I saw this really cute line named “Love Ady.” I know…I’m so late on these things sometimes. I fell head-over-heels, for these pieces. And they’re on sale here!

    If there is one thing I love about shopping, it’s getting more bang for my buck. By this, I mean buying a lot of basics that I can rework into other outfits. I love this gray vest and simple black cotton dress. They can be worn with many different pieces that already exist in my bargainista wardrobe. You’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them. This entire outfit cost around $30. Yay bargains!! How many versatile pieces do you have in your closet?

    OOTD: Simple LBD

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    Please excuse the cheesy pic. I had to take this photo after our night out in Hollywood. My hubby the photographer was not available. So, it’s a good ol’ self-portrait. I had a lot of ideas of what I wanted to wear this night, but it just didn’t pan out. Don’t you just hate that! I decided on a very simple outfit with a little black dress. I try not to over-accessorize. You know that’s my pet peeve. We had a great time and I survived these pumps. I’m very proud of myself.

    Dress: Ross
    Shoes: Jessica Simpson
    Belt: Target
    Earrings: Forever 21

    **Underneath I wore this Elomi Smoothing Bustier, courtesy of Simply Be. Love the coverage and it’s “lifting” potential! LOL

    Love, Thanks, and Health

    Did I ever tell you curvaliscious ladies how much I love ya? No? Well, I do. You are very supportive and encouraging…that’s why I love ya! Can I just take a second to thank all of you for following me here and on twitter? Thanks! I also want to thank for the comments, as you know, I love the feedback. I know I haven’t been posting a lot of outfit pics, but there are a few things going on lately and I just feel blah! (Like this one to the right…do I have a Bieber shag going on? LOL)

    On a side note…I just received news from my doctor about some personal female health issues. Nothing deadly, but if I don’t take better care of myself it could lead to serious health problems. So, I’ve taken the initiative to improve my eating and fitness habits. But, I still want my curves, so I plan on working on a fitness regime that will enhance them. I am currently a size 16/18 and I wouldn’t want to go any smaller than a 12/14. That’s just me, but I do have to take care of my health first, right? I will definitely keep you updated. Ok…so now it’s off to grab a dress for tonight. I’m going out to celebrate my friends 30th birthday in Hollywood! Yay! Oh, I will definitely take pics of that outfit!
    Have a blessed weekend!!
