Time flies when you’re having fun!

The month of October just flew by didn’t it? I spent some time in South Beach and Orlando, Florida and it feels like a dream. LOL! I can’t believe it’s already November. I’m freaking out over here. It’s going way too fast. I saw a Christmas commercial yesterday and I’ve determined I’m not ready. I didn’t even do anything for Halloween because I was sick. I saw everyone’s costumes and I was very jealous.

Speaking of October…Breast Cancer Awareness month was one I’ll never forget. In fact, I created a quick video for you all. Check it out below.

Oh…don’t forget to enter the last “Pink” giveaway. You can enter to win a pink clutch filled with jewlery from Ashley Stewart. It ends Friday!! Enter Now!! 

Must See Video: VICE.com Fashion Week Internationale

Thanks to Plus Model Magazine for the heads up on these two videos. Vice.com (from the UK), covered Full Figured Fashion Week for their series “Fashion Week Internationale.” I’d really love to know what you think after watching both videos.

I will tell you, it was honor to attend Full Figured Fashion Week and wouldn’t of had my experience any other way. I had an amazing time and loved being surrounded by women who love fashion as much as I do.

Here’s a link to the videos….

After watching the videos, I’m reminded how ignorant some people really are. Like I really needed reminding.

What are your thoughts?

KleanSpa Blending Bash

A few weeks ago, I wrote a Beauty Buzz feature and hosted a giveaway for KleanSpa.  Here’s the original post. In case you were wondering KleanSpa products can be found in salons and stores throughout the nation. If you love creating your own scents and live in the Los Angeles area, then I would recommend attending their monthly Blending Bash. At the Bash, you will personally work with Jennifer (the owner) to create your own signature fragrance.

I attended one last month and it was so much fun! I went with Nik and Denise at the Burbank location which is inside an amazing boutique called MindfulNest. I think most of the night we spent shopping, drinking champagne, and choosing the oils for our scents. I created Chaotic Fruit, which consists of watermelon, pina colada, mango, and cucumber melon.. It smells so yummy.

Here’s a little video I took:

Crystal Renn speaks…again…about her weight loss

image:crystalrenn.com

Ex-plus model Crystal Renn, in an exclusive video interview via the Ford Models Blog, speaks up again about the issue of her recent weight loss.

“For some a thinner Crystal Renn has meant betrayal of the very foundations upon which she built her career as the most famous plus model in the world. On the face of it, these accusations appear founded, but do not hold up when subjected to further scrutiny. Lost in the discussion has been Crystal’s steady call for greater diversity in fashion and especially as it concerns size.” -Ford Models Blog

Check out the video…

In the interview, Crystal states that if she were to go back up to her plus-size model weight she would have to develop a binge eating disorder.

“Crystal is an incredible model no matter her size and should be celebrated as such. I am not sure this will be the final word on the issue, but so far as this page is concerned this Crystal Renn interview draws a line under it.” -Ford Models Blog

I think she’s a beautiful woman and an amazing model. Can you leave it at just that? Do you not care anymore? Or do you feel “betrayed?”
