‘All I Want for Christmas’ is my Favorite Victoria’s Secret Fragrance

Can you believe there are only 12 days until Christmas?!? I am not ready. At all. I’m going to be doing some major shopping this week. I’m putting together my gift list and all I can think about is what I want. LOL! Of course! The first thing on my wish list would be ‘Bombshell’, it’s one of my favorite fragrances from Victoria’s Secret. I was lucky enough to get a complimentary bottle a few months ago at an event and I’ve been wearing it ever since. I always get tons of compliments when I wear it too! You can’t…

Adding some Sparkle to My Night

Finally an outfit post! I know I’ve been slacking when it comes to these. Sorry my loves! Last week I was invited to a holiday event at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California. I was clueless as to what I was going to wear. This is totally a last minute outfit. There wasn’t a dress code or anything, so I figured I’d go with a casual look but with some much needed sparkle. I’ve had this beautiful Nordstrom Sejour sequin blazer for a while now and haven’t had a chance to wear it. Like a dummy, I kind of…

Dare to Try a Bold Eye?

Thanks to L’Oreal for sponsoring my post about my favorite beauty looks, tips and tricks! Check out Makeup.com for beauty advice from the experts. My name is Monique and sometimes I’m kind of a makeup wimp. I’ve always been a simple kind of girl, never stepping out my box. I’ve always stayed with neutral safe colors when it comes to eye shadow. Actually, I just started using eyeliner a few months ago. I know…I know. I’ve never claimed to be a make-up guru, just a girl experimenting. With the holiday season upon us, I know I’m going to be going…

GlassesUSA.com to the Eye Rescue!

I can see youuuuuuuu! I’m wearing my brand new eye glasses courtesy of GlassesUSA.com. These frames are sleek, lightweight, and super stylish. I was able to browse through the different frame styles, shapes, and colors; all while using their “Virtual Mirror.” You get to “try on” the prescription glasses virtually and even send the photo to your friends. I filled my prescription, chose the lens, and what coatings I wanted so easily. I will say that you do have to search for the exact dimensions of your glasses. Not every frame comes in your size. For example a few of…

Melt Away the Winter Blues with Playtex Secrets® Bra Giveaway

Printed bras are greatly underrated. There’s something about knowing you have a bra with a fun design underneath your clothes. Like, when I wore this new Playtex Secrets® Cotton Shaping Underwire bra ($34) in the Mini Grape Zebra print. I felt a little sassy! It’s a great way to add a burst of color to your day and melt away your winter blues. And not only was it cute, but it was comfy and it fit. You know I’m a big fan of that! We all know that finding a bra that fits us the right way is a challenge.

I’m actually wearing the bra right now! Is that a little too much information? LOL!

Vintage Curves: The Plus Side of ModCloth

Where are my vintage clothing lovers? If you’re here, then you already know about ModCloth right. They offer vintage/retro inspired clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, and stuff for your home. They even have a vintage shop, but stuff sells out fast! I’ve known about them for a while, but was always bummed to find out that they didn’t offer plus sizes. Well, that’s certainly not the case anymore. I stumbled over there today researching a post for one of my other blogs and I was surprised at how many plus size pieces they offer. I found these items below in sizes 12-22…

Cutey Charm Bracelets are Charming

Aren’t we always on the look out for affordable but chic jewelry? OK, I’m always on the lookout for affordably chic jewelry. And lately I’ve had this obsession with Trollbead charm bracelets. I blame my best friend. But, each bead adds up and it just gets expensive. I’ve found my solution with Cutey charm bracelets. Cutey, a UK line, is looking to bring you stylish, quality and easily customizable jewelry. They sent me the Oneiroi (£12.99) charm bracelet and was instantly charmed. No pun intended. They only carry charm bracelets at the moment, but they’re hoping to carry other pieces in…
