Beauty Buzz: TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

This post brought to you by TRESemmé. All opinions are 100% mine. The alarm goes off. You hit snooze. Alarm goes off again. It’s one of “those” mornings. You know, the kind where  you don’t want to get up and out of bed. You just want 30 more minutes of sleep. Don’t get me started on how long it takes to style our hair! If you feel like skipping a day of shampooing, then you might want to try TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo. It’s a unique formula created to absorb excess oil and remove odors. It rejuvenates hair without a single drop…

ASOS Curve’s Little Black Dress Love Affair

If you take a second to visit the ASOS Curve web site, you’ll notice the 19 LBD’s they are currently selling. I know we all love a little black dress and they’re definitely offering your lots of options here. I’m not even sure which one I’d pick. Although, the one with the white corsage really sticks out. It’s so chic! It’s like LBD heaven up in here!!

Introducing REAL by MYHABIT, A New Shopping Experience

Everyone’s favorite “go to” shopping site, has created MYHABIT. It’s one of the latest “membership-only” fashion sale sites. And they just recently launched REAL by MYHABIT. It’s a series of online sale events offering women, sizes 14-24, the best designer and contemporary brands at up to 60% off. The sales will last up to 4 days, unless they sell out (which can happen!). Today’s sales include dresses from Taylor Dress, denim from CJ by Cookie Johnson (some of my favorites are already sold out), and Z from Zenobia. I’m loving the red blazer by Z from Zenobia. It’s originally $1,350 and…

Celebrate Fall with MICHAEL Michael Kors

Yay! It’s the first day of fall and I can’t wait for the weather to change. I’m already thinking about cold weather accessories! Go ahead and blame it on the new Bloomingdales catalog. I saw this yummy-licious MICHAEL Michael Kors Twist Neck Warmer that is definitely on my shopping list. I know it’s L.A. and it doesn’t get that cold, but it doesn’t hurt to be fashionably prepared. LOL. Me and my excuses to shop! Here are a few more MICHAEL Michael Kors accessories that wouldn’t hurt to have.

Beauty Buzz: The Turbie Twist

Have you ever watched one of those “As Seen on TV” commercials (a.k.a. infomercials) and thought…Why didn’t I think of that? That’s exactly how I felt when I saw the Turbie Twist commercial for the first time. And when I finally got my hands on one, it was confirmed…I should of invented this! I’ve been throwing my wet hair up in towels since I can remember. And when you’re hair is soaking wet, it takes for ever to dry and you have a heavy towel on your head. My hair is long too! Not with the Turbie Twist. I don’t want…

The Black Beaded Necklace

I love when I spot a new jewelry trend. Especially if it’s one that can be worn by anyone and everyone. I first spotted this beautiful black beaded Kate Spade New York ‘cut to the chase’ bib statement necklace last month. I found a few other necklaces below that I’d love to own, they range in price from $7.80-$650. Not only could these be worn in the fall, but also into the winter with your favorite holiday dress. How would you wear a black beaded necklace?

My L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite Visit

Don’t tell anyone, but I think I’m a closet beauty junkie. I can’t get enough! I was so excited when L’Oreal Paris invited me to visit their beauty suite at the Emmy’s Luxury Lounge! It was held inside the beautiful Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills, on Saturday. Whenever I get invited to an event I honestly don’t know what to expect. For example, I almost bumped into Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cameron Tucker, when I exited the elevator. I also spotted Jerry Ferrara who plays Turtle on Entourage. He’s too cute! I made my way to the…

L.A. Fashion Scene: La Maison de Fashion

On a very hot L.A. afternoon, I made my way to a hidden fashion gem on Melrose Ave, La Maison de Fashion. OK, it might not be hidden to the many fashion stylists of Los Angeles, but it was for me. La Maison de Fashion is style house and boutique.  The space may be small, but the fabulousness of it is overwhelming. I wanted to touch everything. LOL. I really did. But, I didn’t. One thing about La Maison de Fashion you should know is they house various sizes, styles, and designers. And you can shop online here. I was there to…

Plus Model Magazine Blogger Conference Pics

I am missing NYC soooo much right now. The Plus Model Magazine blogger conference was so much fun. There’s just something about being around a group of women who love fashion as much as you do. Nevermind the fact that we all love and appreciate our curves. Everyone looked so beautiful and the confidence was beaming from that room. Once again, a BIG thank you to Plus Model Magazine and Just As You Are for inviting me. Erica Watson was hilarious, as always, and the models were beautiful. Unfortunately, my batteries and back-up batteries died. I didn’t get any photos…
