Beauty Alert: Tarina Tarantino for Sephora

If you couldn’t already tell, Tarina Tarantino is all about the color pink! I’ve met her and she’s really sweet! That’s the day I met Hello Kitty…that’s a whole other story! Lol.

Tarina is so bold and creative, it only makes sense she would start a product line with Sephora. Not only is she a make-up artist, but she creates and designs the most amazing accessories!

“Being different, being unique, being an individual and creating your own style is what TARINA TARANTINO is all about,” she says. “It should look good on you and look good while you are putting it on.”-Sephora.com

Milan Fashion Week Recap

Style.com has this great recap of Milan Fall 2010 fashion week. I wish I could have been there. One day I know I will be. Yes, I have been to Milan…Ok…I’ve been to the Milan train station for about an hour on my way to France. Does that count? Lol.

It’s a blah day…

I finally bought a new camera and a tripod to go with it. But, I’m not happy with the way I look in any of today’s photos. That’s why you only see the top half of me. Don’t mind the double chin. Lol. I’m not loving myself right now. So blah! Anywhooo…it’s a case of the Wednesdays. The empire top and flats I’m wearing are old, but comfy and my pretty cousin Arlene gave me the necklace for Christmas. I love the little black bow on it. I’m wearing black leggings btw, which I can’t get enough of. Ok ladies…off to have Chinese food for dinner at my fave spot. Toodles!!

H&M Petition

Dear H&M,

I am going to keep this short and to the point. As a woman and a huge fan of yours, I am urging you to make sizes larger than a 12 (US) available in your United States stores. Being that the average size of the American woman is a 14, it would only make sense for your company to stock these sizes. It would also make a lot of us very happy.

I know you have a plus-size line available in other countries and I’m sure it does very well. This would not only benefit us fashion-savvy curvy women, but it would benefit you financially ($$$).

To show you, this is not just a one woman requests, I am asking all of those who agree to leave a comment with their first name and the state/country where they reside.

Thank you,

Monique

P.S Please pass this on via email, tweet, facebook, or whatever you use. Thanks!

Ring & Bling

I love a good ring. You know…one that makes a statement with it’s sparkle.

These long shield rings have caught my attention. My only problem? The big hands I inherited from my dad! Most don’t fit me. But, that’s OK. For now, I’ll just have to look. Lol.

Forever 21 at ShopStyle

Thank You!

Thank you, to all the lovely ladies that participated in the lingerie survey. I really appreciate your input. I will keep you updated on any news involving us curvy gals! Thanks a bunch!!

Smooches!!

Betsey Johnson Sexy

I knew there was a reason I loved Betsey Johnson. I was e-window shopping on Nordstrom.com…like always, and I fell in love. She really knows the female body. Now, if only we could get her regular line in plus size. Here’s to wishful thinking.

Tulle Pretty

When you think of tulle, a wedding dress is probably the first think that comes to mind. Don’t worry pretty princesses, you can now wear it without saying “I do.” If you’re a crafty curvy chick, you can probably make the earrings and necklace yourself. Let me know if you do.


Saturday Night Rant

It’s Saturday night and I’m sitting here watching The Bad Girls Club. I’m feeling all feisty right now! Lol. If you live in L.A. and listen to KDay…only one of the best radio stations EVER, then you’ve heard that dumb Lap Band commercial. I can’t stand it!! It goes a little something like this…

Guy:”Wow Bridget, you look so skinny! I can’t believe you ever weighed that much weight!”

Girl: “Oh thank you! See these two gallon jugs of water I’m holding? That’s how much weight I lost!”

Guy: “What is your favorite thing to do now that you’re skinny?”

Girl: “I get to go shopping at all the fun stores!”

Come on!!! Are you kidding me? I despise that commercial. Too bad all of us non-skinny people don’t get to shop at fun stores! Ugggghhh!! Kiss my BIG OL’ BOOTY Lab Band! You bite!

Thank you. I’m done.

A day well spent…

 <span class=

Today was a beautiful day! I spent the day with my mom, dad, and my little brother. My parents are divorced so spending time with both at the same time is rare. Look at the cute dress my mom gave me! She’s too sweet.

We had lunch together, then spent a couple of hours at thrift stores.Yay! Bargain shopping at its best. I dressed super comfy, in my favorite boots of course. Very casual…kinda boring actually. I wanted to add a simple scarf, but it was a little warm here in L.A. I found a lot of great things, but I’m in a “what I need” more than “what I want” shopping mode. I picked up that cargo blazer and two skinny belts. Spent a total of $8!! I think I might head out again this weekend. Wish me luck!

Spring Trends: Coral

What’s the difference between coral and orange you say? Coral has a touch of pink or red hue. Let’s not worry about that…let’s just enjoy this vibrant color in our spring wardrobes. There’s nothing like a splash of color to wake up the fashion senses.

I’ve had my eye on #3 for about two weeks now. I think I’m going to go and grab it before it’s gone. And don’t get me started on #5!! Love love love coral.

My golden rule: Don’t let bright colors frighten you! Even if it’s a pair of shoes or a rockin’ handbag, wear it proud!
