For as long as I’ve been blogging, I’ve never really thought about creating a vlog (video blog). I feel like you guys only know the blogger side of me. So, I’ve decided to create at least one video a week on my YouTube channel. Make sure you guys head over and SUBSCRIBE today. This first vlog is all about beauty tips I’d share with my younger self. We all wish we knew then what we know now. Right? Watch it below!
It may only be the middle of summer, but the fashion industry is already in a holiday mood. And today I have a quick sneak peek for you! It’s the Lane Bryant Holiday 2015 lookbook! Complete with clothes, accessories, shoes, active wear, and intimates. I uploaded it to You Tube for you guys and can’t wait to hear what you think. I already see a lot of favorites…like faux fur, metallics, and boots! What are you eyeing?

The New York City whirlwind that is Full Figured Fashion Week ended just as I imagined it would—an evening bursting with plus size fashion on the runway. On this night retailers and boutiques had a chance to show us their latest and favorite styles. And we even had a performance from The Glamazons. A big thank you to Fit For Me, the premier sponsor, for having me as one of their blogger ambassadors! I had a seat in the front row with an amazing view of the runway. Read more
Drybar…where have you been my entire life? I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without visiting you. And now you have this new Mudslide Treatment to give my hair the yumminess it needs. Yes, we are now officially BFF’s. I was invited out by Dry Bar to experience this new treatment and all that is wonderful of this magical place. I even created a little video! Read more
I have always been a fan of actress Drew Barrymore. Maybe it’s her free spirit…or the fact that’s she’s a great actress. So, when she debuted her beauty line Flower a few year’s ago, I was really excited. I use her Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in ‘Get to the Poinsettia’ religiously. I’m still experimenting with some of the other products. I did get my hands on one of the mascaras. Check out this Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara review.

Disclosure: This is a sponsored and heartfelt collaboration with Pantene.
The relationship with our hair is a funny thing. We love it one minute, then we’re hating it the next—especially when it won’t do what we want it to do. In the end, it’s love that wins, because when you ask people to cut their luscious locks they’re pretty hesitant to do it. Or when someone loses it, beyond their own control, it can be devastating. That’s why I was more than happy to donate 10-inches of my own hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths on National Donate Your Hair Day (NDYHD). Read more
When COVERGIRL invites you to get pampered and attend the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s), but you can’t go—you don’t let an opportunity like that pass by! That’s why I asked my beautiful, funny, and adorable friend Maya if she wanted to go for me. And she said yes! Read more
COVERGIRL knows how to throw a party. Last night, they kicked off the MTV Video Music Awards with a pre-party featuring performances by Becky G and Jessie J. Yes, they are not only “Easy, Breezy, and Beautiful,” but they’re both extremely amazing performers. Total girl power! Watch the video I took of them both performing at the end of this post, which includes a cover of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and “Bang Bang!” Read more
Hey everyone! I’m Maya from Mayainthemoment.com! Monique asked me to guest post this week and of course I had to say YES! Since I’m a fashion “n00b”, I consider myself a “lazy girl,” which is basically someone who is low maintenance when it comes to all things fashion. This summer I went through an experience that pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to dress up! Check out that story in the video below along with my own fashion tips for lazy girls!

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Alberto VO5®.
Oh frizzy hair…what did I ever do to deserve you? It’s not that I don’t love your natural quirkiness, but sometimes a girl wants sleek and shiny hair. It’s true…I do! That’s why I was so quick to partner with legendary hair care brand Alberto VO5®. They have a five step system that is not only super easy to follow, but is also very affordable. This sounds like music to my ears, my wallet, and my hair! Besides, August is “National Anti-Frizz Month,” we have to commemorate it somehow! Read more
I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I’m a makeup pro. Nope. Not one bit. In fact, I’m always checking out easy beauty tutorials and asking my makeup obsessed friends questions. Yes, I’m just like you! And now that we’re at the end of the red carpet season, I want to know how I can create some of those red carpet looks by myself, at home. Read more
