REVIEW: INDIAN HEMP & TAMANU GROW STRENGTHEN EDGE TAMMING TAFFY

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
I am always in search of a great product for my edges! Especially a product that will help moisturize my hair, tame frizz and fly always and give my high buns LIFE! I might have found the product...

Dress, Choies.com

I was going to add in a clip in extension to give my bun more volume but last minute decided not to. I took this picture and realized I can get a really full bun with my own natural hair. Super excited about the turn out! I love it. Click below for details!

BEAUTY AND FASHION TALK WITH ALEXIS

Monday, November 25, 2013
Meet Lex ... she's always changing up her look, constantly hitting the gym, and a huge fan of the Karashian's.





What is your typical weekday morning beauty routine? St Ives liquid face soap or face scrub, Rose floral toner by Fresh. Mix of 1 drop of Trader Joes vitamin e oil and a pump of Cetaphil face moisturizer. Oil of Olay body wash with Shea butter. Love it. Baby oil gel before towel dry.

What is your favorite beauty product right now and why?
 
What product have you used for years and continue to use?
I've never stopped using Johnson and Johnson's baby oil gel. It keeps my skin so soft.

Tell me a beauty secret: I use coconut oil for everything. Overnight face moisturizer. Heals burns from the curling iron. Hair mask, acne scars, it's so cheap!

What is your favorite nail brand and why?
I can't paint my own nails. I wish I could.  Essie & OPI are my favorite polishes but I haven't noticed a difference between the two.

What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner?
I have never consistently used a shampoo and conditioner. I've just never fallen in love with anything. I do prefer the L'Oreal sulfate free line. I did the co-wash method all summer. I used the deep conditioner from the L'Oreal curl line.

Have you tried a recent hair product you think is great? Why do you love it? 
My favorite hair product is Carols Daughter hair milk lite. On those natural curly days this product moisturizers and shapes my curls. It has changed my life.

What is your fashion style?
Id like to say my fashion style is most like the Older Kardashian sisters. Khloe Kim and Kourtney are my inspiration as I shop around. They all have different styles and I love how they (or their stylists) take "younger" looks and make them look a little more mature.  I'm too old for forever 21 but I'm more fashionable than the Gap. Don't get me wrong, I buy a lot of basics from the Gap. It's my go to because they have great prices and clothes that last a lifetime. Lol, I digress, my body is curvy. So are the Kardashian's bodies. So its cool to see runway looks on girls that don't have runway bodies. Ive looked at their fashion mistakes and avoided them. I've looked at what works for them and made it work for me. What's also great is that their style is similar but not the same. So I take what I like from each one. Khloe's playful, urban, girly, chic. Kim's feminine and high fashion. She wears lots of black which I love. And Kourtney takes risks with her everyday basics. 

Who is your favorite fashion designer? and why?
My favorite designer is Monique Lhuillier.  Her dresses are stunning and wear well on women with curves. I'm always mesmerized by her designs on the red carpet.

MAD ABOUT PLAID

Thursday, November 7, 2013
Winter time means I can break out my beanies and pair them with my favorite jackets. This season I'm into plaid ... a lot!



BEYONCE TOUR FASHION: LOVE IT OR HATE? PLUS NEW SONG!

Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Have you checked out Beyonce's fashion on her latest tour? It kicked off last week.  Drum roll .... here are my favorite pieces.


She's giving me real hollywood glam in this glitter jumpsuit by Vrettos Vrettakos.

 My favorite has to be this Givenchy number. I think the hat is what makes me die when I see this. I hope she designs a cute hat for her Spring H&M campaign. Can I be her for Halloween please? So I can pretend for one day.
It's not a Beyonce show unless she whips out a white outfit. Remember the white bathing suit from her other tour? I almost went and purchased a white bathing suit for no reason at all. Anyway, she hit the stage in the beaded beauty by Ralph & Russo. The waist detail is amazing! A lot of people disliked her 3D nipple one piece bodysuit CLICK HERE. It looked a bit robotic! I wasn't a fan of it either but guess what? She's a grown woman.  Speaking of, check out her new song "Grown Woman." 




What's your favorite? Are you checking out her tour?

BEAUTY AND FASHION TALK WITH KELLY

Monday, November 4, 2013

Sometime you can learn great tips, tricks and product suggestions from the people around you. I have a diverse group of friends and I am excited to share with you some of their takes on beauty and fashion. Meet Kelly ..









What is your typical weekday morning beauty routine?
I made the full switch from wake up and go girl to low maintenance chic a few years ago. In the morning, I will either dab some concealer on my dark marks or throw on some sheer foundation, I love love lovvveeeee Maestro by Giorgio Armani foundation, he makes them in rich enough tones for us cocoa skinned girls. I always put on some blush in a warm orange or deep red, mascara, black liner, and more often than not, a bold red lip. I look polished, but not overdone.

What is your favorite beauty product and why?
I can't really live without mascara or blush, they are the two products that give you a little more life and wake up your entire face.

What makeup brand is your favorite and why? I have no real product loyalty, I'm definitely a brand hopper in constant pursuit for the next best thing or a cheaper version of the luxe products in my arsenal.

What product have you used for years and continue to use?
I never stray from my Burts Bees chapstick. I have one in my bed, in each purse, at my desk, and by my couch. Obsessed is not the word.

Tell me a beauty secret: I use a mixture of pure vitamin E oil and coconut oil as my night cream, they keep my skin moisturized throughout the night and help with my minor eczema.

What is your favorite nail brand and why? I love OPI polish, mostly because they make very user friendly brushes. Two swipes give a very clean, polished mani.

What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner?
I love anything with tea tree oil, the cleansing tingle is so satisfying.

Have you tried a recent hair product you think is great? Why do you love it? 
As a relaxed girl with short hair, I struggled to find a foaming wrap lotion that had the right amount of hold without making my hair stiff. I recently found the Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Wrap and Set Mousse, it is perfection.

What is your fashion style?
I like to keep it simple, chic, and feminine  I believe that less is more and don't really subscribe to trends. Although all my family and friends love to see me in color, I tend to stick to grayscale and neutrals.

Who is your favorite fashion designer? and why?
Alexander Wang and Helmut Lang. I enjoy their clean lines and casual aesthetic, and while they provide you with an effortless look, the attention to detail they pay to the female body is amazing, their clothes cloak your curves in the most beautiful way.
