This past weekend was a very L’Oreal Paris kind of weekend and I loved it. I wrote a recap about my Friday beauty experience here–> Getting Red Carpet Ready with L’Oreal Paris, it includes an awesome giveaway! I just wanted to post a few pics of my outfit. It was a very simple outfit with a pop of coral. I found this silk top while thrifting with my mom, it’s Lane Bryant. My jeans are Torrid and shoes are Steve Madden. It was such a great afternoon, can’t you tell by the smile on my face? LOL!
Interior designer and HGTV star Sabrina Soto, has a beauty secret to keeping her eyelashes thick, long, and luscious without wearing false lashes! And it’s her beauty obsession for 2012.
I think it’s my new beauty obsession. It’s L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara. You already know I love it!
Sabrina recently revealed, “I’m obsessed with L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara. It’s fantastic to use when there is no time to use false eyelashes. It gives you the same appearance in one quick step!” – Sabrina Soto
It has a combo of super-fine nylon and rayon fibers that attach to your natural lashes. covering them from root to tip with an exclusive polymer in the formula. And I really love the 40-degree angle of the brush. This mascara instantly makes my lashes appear fuller, longer, and it curls them. And I have five of the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes to give away to you! ENTER BELOW!
Who’s going to watch the Golden Globes on Sunday? We are now officially in award season and that means lots of gifting suites. I was invited to the L’Oreal Paris beauty suite inside the HBO Luxury Lounge at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. It was a day of pampering, which I really needed. And I got to hang out with my friend Lisann, who’s in town for the weekend.
L’Oreal Paris is celebrating 40 years of beauty, so it only seemed fit that the room was designed with gold touches everywhere! My makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist April. She gave me some helpful tips while using some of L’Oreal’s hottest products. Connie gave me one of the best manicures I’ve had in a long time…Thank goodness! This is my first time trying out their nail polish, and so far so good with their new line Colour Riche. Then the funny and talented Romero styled my hair. He had us cracking up! He gave me a very Bridget Bardot-inspired hair style.
This weekend celebrities will be get all primped and pampered courtesy of L’Oreal Paris, just like me for Sunday’s award show. I can’t wait to see the red carpet and what my favorite actresses are wearing and how they’re styled.

I’m staring at my closet right now wondering if I can squeeze more shoes in there. Looks like a big fat “No.” I was not made to have a small closet. Now, I’m trying to figure out where I can store them (my poor husband). Read more

Hello my loves!
I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I did! I was invited to celebrate the 3-year Blogaversary of The Curvy Fashionista, here in Los Angeles. Marie is a good friend of mine, so I was more than happy to support her. Besides, it was an awesome party! It was filled with not only bloggers, but family, friends, models, designers, celebs, and fans. It was also a great way to meet up with a lot of my friends. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of the night, but I did snap a photo of my outfit. And if you follow me on Twitter, then you know there was someone at the party wearing the same dress I was! That has never happened to me before, so I was a little thrown off at first. But, I got over it (after a while LOL) and had an amazing time. I even snapped a pic with her, which I’ll post on my Facebook once I get it.
I’m wearing the Retro Chic by Torrid, Leopard One Shoulder Dress. The minute I saw the beautiful Denise Bidot modeling it on the Torrid web site, I knew I had to have it. Normally, I’d shy away from a dress like this, but I’m not going to fear fashion anymore. This dress fit like a glove and really hugged my curves. I felt so sassy and sexy in it! And I’m a big fan of the ruched sides. My shoes are my “oldie but goodie” Jessica Simpson patent leather peep toe platforms. It was a great dress for a great night! Congrats again Marie and may you celebrate many many years of blogging!
Hairstylist from around the world swear by L’Oreal Paris’ Elnett Satin hairspray. I swear I see it in almost every photo from a “behind the scenes” shoot. Well, it’s not a new product by any means. In fact, it’s been around for four decades. But, it’s only been available in the U.S. for a few years.
I was recently gifted a can at a L’Oreal event and I’ve kind of become obsessed with it. It really offers hold, but it doesn’t leave your hair sticky. And it brushes out really easily without leaving any of that white residue that some hairsprays do. Guess that’s where the “satin” comes from.
It’s also supposed to offer protection against humidity, but we don’t have much of this around Los Angeles, so I’m not sure. Some people do complain of the scent, but I actually like it. If you’re one of those, they do offer an unscented formula. Regardless, this is one great product. Looks like I’ve found a hairspray that will continue to stand the test of time.
Elnett Satin is available in four formulas: Strong Hold, Extra Strong Hold, Extra Strong Hold Unscented, and Extra Strong Hold for Color-Treated hair. The last one offers a UV filter to protect your colored hair.
Look mom! I like something besides sequins! Yes, my loves, I’m venturing into metallics. Whether it’s a top, jacket, shoe, or even a handbag-getting in on the shine will make you stand out. And if you don’t want to go all out, then why not add something with a touch of metallic. It’s a great way to break up an all-black outfit.
I put together a few collages below. The first three are outfits with a few touches of metallic. Each one has it’s twist. Then you have a selection of a few bags and clutches I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on, especially this one from ASOS (right). Then I venture into shoes…of course. Ughhhh dying over these shoes. Are you drooling yet?
