When I get an invitation to get pampered, let’s just say I’m in. But, if you’re Simply Be, you want to pamper me, and you want me to preview some of your spring pieces…well then that’s just a triple bonus! You know I’m really in! Along with a few of my very good blogger friends, we gathered in L.A. to get out nails done, chat, and more.
We can all agree that sexy is a state of mind. Whether you’re wearing a potato sack, denim jeans, lingerie, or a designer gown; it’s up to you to determine what’s sexy. For me, what I wear underneath my clothes makes me feel “oh la la.” FYI, that means wearing a sexy bra. And I can’t shop for just any bras, I have to (proudly) check out the full-figured section. From lace, satin, balconette, to plunge—there are lots of sexy bras out there for us! Here are 10 of my favorite sexy full-figure bras.
Yes…Katy Perry looked beautiful at the Grammy’s. I will admit, I’m not the biggest fan of her music, but man this chica is a stunner. I not only fell in love with her Valentino Haute Couture gown, but her makeup was near perfect. She was one of my favorite red carpet looks from the Grammy’s. And now here’s your chance to copy her look, straight from her beauty team of the night!
What is your definition of beauty? Don’t have an answer yet? That’s OK. We’re going to redefine it. You can start by watching Dove’s short film “Selfie.” Set to debut at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the beauty brand is exploring how social media is changing our perception of beauty.
Guess what? It’s time to celebrate Curves and Chaos’ 4th birthday! You may have noticed a few Instagram giveaways this past weekend. I just want to shower you with gifts. Yes, it’s a Curves and Chaos birthday (blog) party! Woohoo! If you can’t tell, I’m really super excited, because you guys have been amazing. All of the support and love you have shown me during the past four years has been beyond anything I could ever imagine.
Let’s be honest, awards season has been pretty good so far. But, we still have the SAG Awards and the Academy Awards to look forward to. Don’t you just love the anticipation of the red carpet? Who is wearing what designer? And what will their hair and makeup look like. This past week, I actually got the inside scoop to a few Golden Globes celebrity looks thanks to L’Oreal Paris.
Let’s just get this out in the open…Camila Alves is beautiful. She’s gorgeous and she’s married to Matthew McConaughey. Lucky lady…she’s also been styled to the perfection this awards season. Last night, she rocked the Critics’ Choice Awards in a red Paule Ka dress, with minimal jewelry, and a sleek knot by NYC-based celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler. Here’s how you can copy her look.
When it comes to applying blush, I will admit I’ve had my challenges. I mean, who hasn’t? I’m no pro by any means, so when a brand like Lancome offers to send me their latest blush I’m very excited to practice my technique. But, you should know, this isn’t any ordinary blush. No it’s not. Let me introduce you to the Lancome Blush Subtil Palette.
No, we aren’t talking about the traditional Japanese kimonos. Although, those are amazingly beautiful. I’m talking about the loose fitting, lightweight, and almost cardigan-like kimono. A few have really caught my eye and now that’s all I can think about. I’m looking at you ASOS! So, I did a little research and found a few favorites that need to make it into my wardrobe.
The Golden Globes have come and gone, but the red carpet will live on in our hearts forever. Right? Well…it will for me. Because I have the inside scoop for you beauty lovers. I have a few tips on how you can get the beauty look of some of our favorites from last night’s red carpet—Sofia Vergara, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, Zooey Deschanel, Rashida Jones, Drew Barrymore, and Allison Williams. And they were all about that classic beauty!
When it comes to my personal style, I never put comfort on the back burner. I just can’t. No matter where I’m going, my outfit has to be comfortable. That’s just how it has to be. It’s something that took me a long time to learn, unfortunately. It comes with age I guess. And that’s perfectly fine with me. Being comfortable equals happiness. And I love being happy with my fashion choices.
I think we can all agree that Queen Latifah looked stunning last night at the People’s Choice Awards. I love how glam (and comfortable) she looked as she picked up her award for Best New TV Show Host. It was well deserved if you ask me. Queen’s stylist Timothy Snell has been doing an amazing job styling her. I loved her look last night—Angela Dean dress, Sutra jewelry, and Gucci shoes. But, can we talk about her hair and makeup for a second? Would you like to know how you can recreate the same makeup look?
Do you ever feel like you need a little help in the fashion department? Well, when I met Tim Gunn, he was more than happy to share some styling tips and fashion advice. He’s such a down to earth guy. I know I keep saying that, but it’s such a breath of fresh air when celebrities are nice. Anyways…one of the things he shared with us were his wardrobe essentials. I actually took video of it and wanted to share it with you guys. I even included my own plus size picks below.
