  • User post: Kindness is Always Fashionable Call-to-Action Day




    I am thrilled to be participating in today's "Kindness is Always Fashionable Call-to Action Day", sponsored by Rachel Roy. If you remember back in July, monsoon like rains left one-fifth of Pakistan underwater. Today, people still need food, water, and good shelter. Many of those people include children. So to help raise money and awareness of the plight of the flood victims in Pakistan, Rachel Roy is offering her Pakistan Tote ($20), which has been signed by 84 of her celeb friends, including Andre Leon Talley, DVF, Iman, Jay-Z and Oprah. 100% of the proceeds are going to UNICEF to help the young victims of this flood. You can purchase the tote here on her website.



    Another way you can help will only cost you a tweet! Every time you tweet this phrase,Rachel Roy will donate a $1 to UNICEF.


    Help @Rachel_Roy raise funds 4 victims of Pakistan's flood. 4 every #RRPakTote tweet, $1 will go to US Fund for @UNICEF. http://j.mp/chckG5

    So please check out the tote and don't

  • User post: Fierce Fragrance: Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Collection

    I was first put on to Harajuku Lovers last year when I reviewed their Snow Bunny collection . One thing I absolutely love about these fragrances are the adorable bottles they come in, making great bedroom decorations long after the perfume is gone. This year these Japanese inspired girls (Love, Lil Angel, Music, G, and Baby) are dressed in their own Wicked Style in this new collection. They are decked out in bright colored threads, cool accessories, and totally punked out hair, taking cues from Japanese fashion. Lil' Angel and Baby are the new additions to my fragrance collection and when I received them for review I was anxious to know if the fragrance was just as good as the bottle!


    Lil' Angel aka Gothic Lolita

    Her style is my absolute favorite! She's rocking the all black outfit with Rhianna Red hair. The perfume smells really good, getting whiffs of the plum and champagne notes. It smells sweet without being too fruity. Despite her loud her, her scent is very

  • Beauty Blast: Three Ultra-Conditioning Body Washes from SoftSoap

    Winter season could spell dryer skin and it's important to make sure we're updating our beauty regimens to keep it properly moisturized. Though it never feels like real winter down in here, I do suffer from dry skin so I was anxious to review these three body washes from SoftSoap. All three promise to keep your skin nourished and hydrated. Skin moisturizing does start in the shower and as a girl who swears by body wash, I do have high expectations!


    Body Butter Mega Moisture Heavenly Vanilla


    Just the fact it had body butter in the name, I used this one first! Let me tell you, it didn't disappoint! The formula is rich and thick, giving you such an awesome lather. The vanilla scent is heavenly and after a week of use, I realized my skin wasn't as dry as it normally was after the shower. Out of the three this was my absolute favorite!




    Black Orchid
    & Velvet Hibiscus


    The formula in this one is enriched with hibiscus extract, a natural skin condition

  • Plus Size Fashion Spotlight: Torrid

    Happy Monday Ladies!


    Today's installment of Plus Size Fashion Spotlight features a very well known brand: Torrid . With celebrity fans such as model Whitney Thompson and actress Queen Latifah, this brand has established itself as one of the leading plus size retailers. I know I've heard the name mentioned on several occasions in reader's comments when I talked about Plus Size Fashion, so I definitely had to include them in a spotlight! Their sizes range from 12 to 26 and the prices are reasonable! Their clothes are also on trend and I love how trendy they are.


    My favs from these picks? The Grey Feather Top and the Navy Dark Denim. I'm a sucker for trendy, yet comfortable clothes and I would rock these in a second!


    Your turn! What do you like from here?

  • Beauty Blast: Sonic Boost Vibrating Mascara from Avon



    Even when I'm having a completely lazy makeup, mascara is always a must! If you have the right one, it's an instant eye opener, making you look awake and refreshed (even when the rest of you isn't!). After trying mascara's like Lashblast and even the Super Extend Mascara from Avon, I have a new mascara favorite - the Sonic Boost Vibrating Mascara from Avon. Now, mind you, I'm always skeptical about ultra fancy cosmetics, especially those that promise bigger lashes with a micro-vibrating brush. But after using it for about two months, I've noticed (and loved!) the instant lift and length it's gives my lashes! They look super long, applying the mascara evenly across each lash. It's also super easy to use, the brush turning on as soon as you twist the cap. The only way you know it's vibrating is by the gentle humming sound you hear. My husband came into the bathroom one day while I was putting it on and was searching all over the bathroom to find out where the noise was coming

  • Fierce Fragrance: Calvin Klein Beauty


    As promised from my Tuesday Top Five of my favorite fragrances , here is the official review of Calvin Klein Beauty. If you remember from way back when, I first told you about this when I announced that Diane Kruger was going to the face of this fragrance. Now CK Beauty has made its grand entrance this Fall.


    Taking its inspiration from a lily, Calvin Klein aims to embody a woman's strength, confidence, and inner-beauty in its fragrance. Housed in this super cool and futuristic glass bottle, this eau de parfum has notes of Ambrette Seeds, Jasmine, and Cedarwood. This scent is very sophisticated, on the level of Balenciaga Paris. I can definitely see a strong and confident women wearing this, just strong enough to last all day with a slight sweet yet equally rich fragrance. Though I'm not sure if the youngsters would be thrilled about it, it would definitely work for an almost thirty something like me as well my mom and grandmother (something to think about with the

  • Tuesday Top Five: Fiercely Short Hair Styles

    If you checked out my Friend Friday Vlog , you'll notice that I'm wearing a short bob hairstyle. I haven't had a bob in a really long time. As a matter of fact, I've only rocked this hair style once and I'm rocking it again, not so much by choice (growing out my relaxer left the back of hair with ragged ends that just had to go!) but I love it all the same. I've found myself finding new ways to rock my new do! It also makes doing my hair in the morning sooo much smoother! So in celebration of my new do, I've found five celebs whose short hairstyles I simply adore!

    What celebs are rocking your favorite short hairstyles?

  • Fierce Fragrance: Outspoken by Fergie

    I know it's been awhile since I've reviewed a perfume on here, though I did list my favorites so far for the Tuesday Top Five . So, without further a due, the fragrance for today's review is Outspoken by Fergie.


    The newest celebrity to join Avon in creating their own signature fragrance, Outspoken was created for the bold, uninhibited woman. With this smell good, sold exclusively through Avon, Fergie's first fragrance is a mixture of her bold expression and ultra femininity.


    "I'm so excited to partner with Avon to develop my first-ever fragrance. I'm always seeking out new ways to express myself, and fragrance is the perfect opportunity to share my originality and confidence with my fans, and the Avon customer. I couldn't be happier to be working with a brand with such a strong reputation for supporting women." - Fergie



    Here's a breakdown of the notes:

    Top Notes: Star Fruit, Iced Berry, Wild Saffron
