And of course there were some celebs on hand. Rumer Willis, Karina Smirnoff, Stephanie Pratt, Demi Lovato, Taylor Armstrong, Lisa Vanderpump, and Aubrey O’Day made sure to get all dolled up! I’m kinda bummed I didn’t get to meet any of them. I think I left before they got there. I wish I would have met Demi Lovato and Aubrey O’Day.
Don’t you just love getting beautified? Thanks to CoverGirl for inviting me to their Beauty Bar event at the Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood. It’s all to celebrate tomorrow’s MTV Movie Awards.
I’m sorry I don’t have any pics from this event. We weren’t allowed to take any photos or video. But, I can tell you this chic salon was packed.
I got my makeup done by the very sweet and talented Amy Nadine. My braided hair was courtesy of the salon. They have a Braid Bar there and only charge $25 to have your hair braided in your style of choice. I know I’ll be back!
They also offered manicures, pedicures, blow outs, and spray tan. Hypnotic was on hand with their new Harmonie Liqueur vodka. We enjoyed purple cocktails, eats, and sweets. We also walked a way with a bag of goodies.
I was going to wear a dress, but it was cloudy here in Los Angeles. I wore this feather-inspired flowy top from Nordstrom Rack, my (fave) City Chic wide leg jeans, and these (new favorite) coral Dolce Vita wedges I also scored at Nordstrom Rack. And you know I’m bangle crazy right now, so I wore these that I got at Avenue, my ring is from H&M, and the earrings are from a small boutique.
I’m wearing CoverGirl’s new Natureluxe Silk foundation, Liquiline Blast Eyeliner, and LipPerfection Lip Color. I’m really loving their products right now!
What is your favorite CoverGirl product?

I’m on an official mission to find out who designer Manon Baptiste is. Do you know?
I think he/she might be a French designer. I’m on Navabi.us and I’ve noticed a lot of this designer’s pieces are sold out. And I can’t for the life of me, find any more information about this designer on the internet. It’s driving me crazy. LOL. Sorry, I’m anal like that.
These are my two favorite pieces and for designer fashion, the prices aren’t too bad. I am loving how these just hug the natural curves of the body. Don’t you just love that?
The first dress also comes in white and would have been perfect for the Full Figured Fashion Week “White on White” Sunset Cruise! Why are all the good dresses gone?
OK, back to the craziness. I’ve already emailed Navabi for more info on this designer, but if any of you out there know, please share with me. Pretty please?
For those of you who don’t know, Navabi sells “designer fashions in plus sizes.” You can find Anna Scholz, Elena Miro, Roberto Cavalli, and more.
Yes, that’s right…designer fashions in plus sizes! You can thank me later.
Where are all my home shoppers at? Flip on the television and check out HSN and QVC for a few surprises. I just bought a pair of Levis Curve I.D. jeans on HSN, which I love! It was my first purchase with them, but with items like these, it won’t be my last. I’ve got my eye on these beauties below, especially that Nick Chavez set. I love that product!
What’s been your favorite item you’ve bought from QVC or HSN? Do you have any tips for us home shopping newbies?
Plus Model Magazine’s June issue is here and it pays tribute to their friend and our role model, Mia Amber Davis. I would really encourage you to read this beautiful issue, cover to cover. There are many heartfelt stories shared and beautiful images of Mia that will live on forever.
This dress is so feminine with it’s golden paisley design, beads, and sequins. I know you can’t see them (sorry), but there are adjustable spaghetti straps under my hair. Which I loved! There is a side zipper, but I didn’t even need to unzip it. The dress just slid over my head for a perfect fit. The empire waist is my favorite part to this dress. It’s so beautiful. Of course I paired it with my Avenue bangle bracelets and these gladiator wedges (for comfort value, because I was going to be cooking).
I must warn you to be careful with the beads on the chest part of the dress. I was brushing my hair and the comb knocked off a few beads.
I will be honest, I have never shopped with Midnight Velvet. But, I instantly fell for their contemporary pieces (misses and plus sizes), accessories, shoes, jewelery, health and beauty, and home products. It’s definitely a shopper’s paradise. Make sure you check out their partner site, Monroe and Main. I’ll definitely add them to my shopping list.
Disclosure: The dress was gifted by Midnight Velvet. The above is my true and honest opinion.
If there’s a designer out there that knows a woman’s curves, it has to be Monif C. That’s why she was selected as Full Figure Fashion Week’s Plus Designer of the Year. Do I even need to give you another reason why? Just look at her designs, they speak for themselves. Besides, most of them are sold out. That should tell you something.
If you’re attending Full Figured Fashion Week, which I hope you are, you’ll be happy to know that the Monif C. boutique is located in New York City. You’ll actually get to see her famous convertible dress and amazing swimsuits up close. And you’ll know why they’re a curvy woman’s dream come true.
Lane Bryant’s Cacique line, is more than just intimates. It’s now about beauty and body care. Available online today, Caciquebody is a new line designed to tone, smooth and revitalize a woman’s natural curves. Sounds great, right?
The new collection includes smoothing body lotion, hydrating body mist, and body butter. Available in scents Pinkberry, Citrusfresh, Waterblossoms, and Nightbloom. They also offer anti-chaffing cream, revitalizing leg cream, and shimmering body lotion.
Lane Bryant sent me the hydrating body mist Spray It Again and the smoothing body lotion Firm Believer in Pinkberry and I was pleasantly surprised. Pinkberry is a “romantic blend of cherry blossoms, raspberry, and peppercorn.” I was worried the scent might be too strong for me, but it actually wasn’t.
Firm Believer felt great as I slathered it on. It had a great consistency and wasn’t too thick. And because of the sculpting seaweed extract and antioxidant blend with a jolt of caffeine my legs really felt refreshed. It’s not every day a clothing company can pull off body care and now I’m super curious to try the other products.
Will you try the Caciquebody line?
Disclosure: I was gifted these products by Lane Bryant. The above is my true and honest opinion.
I don’t know about you, but I’m counting down the days until I get to lounge in the sand on the beach. Doesn’t it sound relaxing? But, what do you wear when you aren’t in the water or laying out getting a tan? You can walk around in your swim suit, but I want to look cute and still protect my skin. That’s when I grab a cover-up. There are tons of styles, colors, and prints to compliment you and your swim suit. Which one below do you like? Click on the style you like for pricing details.
I will tell you right now, that I loooooove Rachel Roy. Who doesn’t? She’s not only an amazingly beautiful woman, but she is a talented designer that really get’s it. Her designs are effortlessly chic. Plain and simple.
I really wish she made plus sizes, but I can tell you that her XL from the Rachel Rachel Roy line that is sold at Macy’s could possibly fit up to a U.S. size 16/18. I bought the 24/7 dress, because I LOVED it, but it was a little too short for me. It hurt me to return it. If you’re in that size range, I would definitely encourage you to try a few of her pieces.
Now, the real reason for this post. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Rachel Roy also designs jewelery. I know! Just look at her pieces below. I have my eye on the elephant ring and the spike pendant necklace. Divine!
Did you know she designed jewelry? Are you loving her designs?
