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
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. Read more
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.

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.
After watching the videos, I’m reminded how ignorant some people really are. Like I really needed reminding.
What are your thoughts?
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:
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
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?”
Evans model, Quinn Miles picks her favorite pieces for 2011 (above). They are fun, flirty, and perfect for spring. Will harem pants make it on your spring list? My picks from the UK retailer are below, what do you think?
My night as a CoverGirl was a very exciting night! Now, you get to see my makeover process during the “Primping Party.” I was having technical difficulties after the party and I couldn’t post the video until now.
My hair was styled by Besma of the Frederic Fekkai Salon and my makeup was done by Toby Fleischman. I felt so glamorous!
