Bauble Alert: Tribal

I’m in a serious jewelry mood right now. I think it’s because I know I have to pick up a few pieces to help style my looks tomorrow for the 365Hangers.com Style-A-Thon. I’m super nervous by the way, even though it’s literally 15 minutes of my life. LOL! Anyways, since I have jewelry on my brain, I was looking around and came across a lot of tribal-inspired pieces. Don’t you just love this trend? I think it’s such a universal style that can be worn all throughout the year. I’d love to track down some vintage tribal jewelry. What do…

I’m one of About Curves ‘Top 50 Self-Acceptance Bloggers!’

When I blog about self-acceptance and positive body image, I do it because I know what it’s like hate your body or be ashamed of what you look like. I’ve been made, like all of us have, to believe that I’m supposed to look like the models in the magazine to be accepted in society. It took me a long time to realize that I don’t have to look like them to be considered beautiful. And that’s what I want to share with you. I do it for no other reason than to help you realize how amazingly beautiful…

Beauty Buzz: Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense

Where are my Clinique fans at? I know you’re a loyal bunch. And if you’re one of them, then you probably already know about this amazing facial moisturizer. Clinique’s Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator ($36) is a tall drink of water for your skin. Seriously. It literally feels hydrating when you’re applying it. I will tell you I have combination skin. That means it’s oily in some areas and dry in others. This is ideally for Very Dry to Dry and Dry Combination skin types. If you have oily skin, then this is not for you. “Rich, oil-free cream-gel instantly…

Style & Designer: Lotta Stenson

Luxury resort wear isn’t really something I look into very often. There doesn’t seem to be much of it for us curvy gals. But, when I find something that is a “One Size” and looks like it will fit me…I’m all over that. That’s what happened when Ivory and I were walking around Magic LV last month and came across Lotta Stenson Resort Wear.  You may bave seen some of Lotta’s designs on a few celebrities like Kim Kardashian or Angelina Jolie. I will tell you that Lotta is not only extremely nice, but she has a great eye for…

Los Angeles Event: 365Hangers.com Style-A-Thon

Hello my loves! I hope you had an amazing weekend. If you did…yay! If you didn’t…boo! I hope this Monday is a lot better for you. Don’t have “a case of the Monday’s.” LOL! I guess lack of sleep is making me a little silly right now. Anyways…I wanted to share an event I’m participating in this Saturday, March 31st. I will be one of four bloggers helping to style a fashion show at the 365Hangers Style-A-Thon here in Los Angeles.

$50 and Under: Espadrille Wedges

Now that spring is here, it’s time to start thinking sandals and wedges. I’m a big fan of wedges. Maybe because it’s not a flat, but it’s not a heel either. And there’s something about an Espadrille wedge that has me thinking spring dresses. Just look at all the style and colors. You have everything from nude to vibrant colors. I think I really need to go shopping. LOL! Since I’m in the mood to shop, I’ve decided to find you a few that are $50 and under. Which one is your favorite? SM Women’s Starla Wedge Sandal – Cream…

Peek inside the IGIGI Spring/Summer Lookbook

Take a peek inside the colorful and stunning IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel spring/summer lookbook! The beautiful Kailee O’Sullivan models the latest collection, appropriately named A Breath of Fresh Air. This vintage-inspired designs “celebrates the rejuvenation of femininity, vibrancy, and liveliness the spell of Spring unveils in all women.” It has a very Mad Men-esque vibe, doesn’t it? I’m in awe of the colors and soft sillhouettes. “My design sensibility has always had a vintage vibe to it, so this season I decided to go all the way and just have a blast with stylistics. I took the old covers of…

Beauty Buzz: New L’Oreal Paris EverStyle

Dry hair is not my cup of tea. And, until recently, I didn’t really care to check if the products I were using contained alcohol or not. It can be damaging and dry out your hair. Which makes it easier for your hair to break. Why did I not ever worry about this? I don’t know. That’s why I was excited to try the  L’Oreal Paris EverStyle line, which is alcohol and paraben free. This makes me a happy camper. But, you’re probably wondering the same thing I did…do they work? I tried the Curl Defining Gel and Mousse, Smooth and…

It’s by no means mandatory, LOL! You probably already have most of these pieces anyways. Are you ready? Let’s get started…from the tips of your fingers to the bottom of your feet.…
