Getting Red Carpet Ready with L’Oreal Paris & Giveaway!!

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…

Beauty Buzz: L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin

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…

Mad for Metallics

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…

Bauble Alert: All Dangled Up

They’re called shoulder dusters, dangle earrings, drop earrings, strand earrings, and even chain earrings. I’m going to go ahead and stick with “dangle” because that’s pretty much what they do. And that’s what I’d like them to do. You know…just dangle there and look pretty. But, sometimes I’m worried they’re going to get caught in my hair. That would not be fun. They do look cool though. What do you think? Are dangle earrings on…

January 2012 Issue of Plus Model Magazine

I may be biased because I’m part of the Plus Model Magazine team, but I’m in awe of the January 2012 issue. It’s filled with literally everything. Loving the beauty and fashion features. I was really excited to put together my shopping piece covering three common new year resolutions. I’m especially moved by the What’s Wrong With Our Bodies Anyways? feature. It’s a powerful photo spread. Don’t take my word for it, check out the…

OOTD: Ringing it in Blue + Giveaway

Happy New Year my loves! How has 2012 been treating you so far? I hope great! And I hope you had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve. The hubby and I rang in the new year with our family. We went over to my mother-in-law’s house and ate, watched the ball drop in New York City, and ate our 12 grapes (for good luck). My friend even came over to hang out, which was…

2011…Almost out the Door…

Are you as stunned as I am that it’s almost 2012? Time flies when you’re blogging. Is that not the saying? Well, it is now! So, I started reflecting on this past year. Thinking about all the amazing people I’ve met, places I was blessed to visit, and the opportunities that came my way. Blogging really has become a creative outlet for me and to be able to blog about what I love is beyond…
