ASOS Curve and The Collar

As a child, I was enrolled in an elementary school with a strict dress code. Girls could only wear skirts and dresses (no shorter than your knees of course) with collars or a collared shirt. I did this from kindergarten until the 5th grade. So, when I noticed ASOS Curve’s love for collars, I immediately had flashbacks. LOL…OK it’s not that bad. I did notice their mini-obsession with the collar. Which you can find embellished, Peter Pan style, scalloped, and even color blocked. I’m curious…are you a collar fan? 

Shoe Fever: On a Sequin Kick

You all know my love for things that sparkle, hence the love for sequins. Well, I just bought my first pair of sequin pumps from Baker’s. And I love them!! They are so sparkly and I know I’m going to get a lot of wear out of them. Especially during this time of the year! Sooooo…now I’m on some kind of sequin kick. If you love sequins too, then you’re probably going to love some of the pairs I picked out below.

‘All I Want for Christmas’ is my Favorite Victoria’s Secret Fragrance

Can you believe there are only 12 days until Christmas?!? I am not ready. At all. I’m going to be doing some major shopping this week. I’m putting together my gift list and all I can think about is what I want. LOL! Of course! The first thing on my wish list would be ‘Bombshell’, it’s one of my favorite fragrances from Victoria’s Secret. I was lucky enough to get a complimentary bottle a few months ago at an event and I’ve been wearing it ever since. I always get tons of compliments when I wear it too! You can’t…

Adding some Sparkle to My Night

Finally an outfit post! I know I’ve been slacking when it comes to these. Sorry my loves! Last week I was invited to a holiday event at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. I was clueless as to what I was going to wear. This is totally a last minute outfit. There wasn’t a dress code or anything, so I figured I’d go with a casual look but with some much needed sparkle. I’ve had this beautiful Nordstrom Sejour sequin blazer for a while now and haven’t had a chance to wear it. Like a dummy, I kind of…

Dare to Try a Bold Eye?

Thanks to L’Oreal for sponsoring my post about my favorite beauty looks, tips and tricks! Check out Makeup.com for beauty advice from the experts. My name is Monique and sometimes I’m kind of a makeup wimp. I’ve always been a simple kind of girl, never stepping out my box. I’ve always stayed with neutral safe colors when it comes to eye shadow. Actually, I just started using eyeliner a few months ago. I know…I know. I’ve never claimed to be a make-up guru, just a girl experimenting. With the holiday season upon us, I know I’m going to be going…

GlassesUSA.com to the Eye Rescue!

I can see youuuuuuuu! I’m wearing my brand new eye glasses courtesy of GlassesUSA.com. These frames are sleek, lightweight, and super stylish. I was able to browse through the different frame styles, shapes, and colors; all while using their “Virtual Mirror.” You get to “try on” the prescription glasses virtually and even send the photo to your friends. I filled my prescription, chose the lens, and what coatings I wanted so easily. I will say that you do have to search for the exact dimensions of your glasses. Not every frame comes in your size. For example a few of…

Melt Away the Winter Blues with Playtex Secrets® Bra Giveaway

Printed bras are greatly underrated. There’s something about knowing you have a bra with a fun design underneath your clothes. Like, when I wore this new Playtex Secrets® Cotton Shaping Underwire bra ($34) in the Mini Grape Zebra print. I felt a little sassy! It’s a great way to add a burst of color to your day and melt away your winter blues. And not only was it cute, but it was comfy and it fit. You know I’m a big fan of that! We all know that finding a bra that fits us the right way is a challenge.

Just take a look at the lightly padded cups that offer shaping and support, there’s a hint of lace for added playfulness and I’m loving the convertible straps.The bra is available in following sizes: In Basic Colors: 36 – 42 B; 36-44 C, D, DD and in Fashion Colors: 36 – 44 C, D, DD. I’m actually wearing the bra right now! Is that a little too much information? LOL!
