Happy Friday!!!

 

You know how we do here on the blog on Fridays! Glasses in the air, pinkies out and “clink” we made it!!

 

Today is a very special day because today marks my 100th post on my blog!! I am just tickled pink I tell you and this has been a great adventure so far and I am looking forward to all that will come in the future. I send out a heartfelt THANK YOU to all that stop by and like my posts and read my posts on well….whatever I feel like writing about that day.

 

If you follow me on Instagram a few days ago I posted a picture about a product that I was going to review and that product was “Save your Sole”. This product is amazing and I love it and will be giving this as gifts to all my awesome girlfriends who rock the “red bottom” we so love. This product was designed to help you protect your soles from day to day wear or to give a fabulous touch up to the sole that need a little TLC. I was searching all over the place to find a place that would restore my shoes back to the original form and didn’t want to spend a lot of money. I also didn’t want to take my shoes to a Cobbler and have them grind down my sole and replace it with an off color red rubber mat.

I came across this produce online and I will admit I was not sure if this would be the perfect red or even a great product for that matter. To my surprise the red is the EXACT glossy red that are on my Christian Louboutin pumps (I see why the lawsuit was in place now) a perfect match! I felt really comfortable trying this product ($35.00 retail) on an old pair first after watching a few YouTube demonstrations. The product is very easy to use and it dries fast and leave that glossy look. If you have some shoes that need a “make over” I highly recommend using this product. Visit the website because they have great gift items and other products for all types of shoe soles and great information on Cobblers as well. Also check out the clear and self-adhesive soles they have for your soles as well, I plan on using those on my next pair of Louboutin’s.

4 Amazing Products I Am Loving Right Now!

Favorite products

 

Hello friends!

 

I made it back from NYFW and it was….welll….ummmm….not what I was expecting or have ever experienced on a trip to New York but none the less it was an adventure. Well I am glad to be home and trying to get back into the swing of things with my beauty regimen. I love events that have swag bags because inside of those bags are great treasures and hidden gems. This past weekend I decided to go through some of the items and I am so happy that I did because I have found 4 brands and I instantly fell in love with their products.

 

First up will be the amazing facial sheet mask from Miss Spa. My first time using this product was in New York after a long day of hustling from show to show and after about 2 makeup touch ups my skin was feeling rough and dry. I normally will pack a quick facial mask to take on trips for a refresher for my skin and on this trip I had the facial sheet mask that exfoliates and reveal smooth skin from Miss Spa. The sheet is pre treated and very moist, they are also paraben, fragrance and artificial dye free. You will place the mask on grab a glass of wine and relax for 20mins. My skin felt amazing when I took the mask off and cleansed my face. The great thing about this product is that it can be used on all skin types and you have your choice to hydrate, brighten, exfoliate and energize your face. I was able to find these products at Walmart for $1.99 and they are worth it.

Next up, would be the fabulous curl boosting jelly by Curls Unleashed. Lately I have been trying products that will enhance my natural curl pattern that I have in my hair and finally my search is over. Curl boosting jelly by Curls Unleashed is a GREAT product to use on your hair if you are looking to rock your natural curls but still want to retain moisture in your hair. I simply shampooed my hair and opened a pack of curl boosting jelly and massage the product into my hair and it was like magic I tell you! The curls were defined and I still have body and movement because the product wasn’t heavy and didn’t weigh my hair down. Love this stuff! I found these packs at my local beauty supply store for $1.99 and the packs are great for traveling as well.

Okay, are you still with me? Great because this next product is not available for retain anymore, however I was able to purchase 3 tubes on Ebay and I felt like I won the lottery! Disaronno lip gloss is the best lip gloss I have ever had and yes I am speaking of the liquor company. A year or so ago Disaronno decided to add a lip gloss to every bottle purchased of their yummy Italian liqueur flavored with herbs and fruit for a special promotion. I found a tube in a swag bag and have been on the mad hunt for more tubes which are almost impossible to find because they don’t sell them anymore. The lip gloss is light not sticky and the shine lasts for at least 4 hours without the need to reapply! I have some high brand lip gloss that shall remain nameless that can’t compete with this product at all. Unfortunately for me I can’t seem to find anymore to purchase so if you happen to come across any more tubes please let me know. I mean really let me know I am so serious!

Disaronno

Finally we arrived to the last product which I received in a swag bag while in New York fashion week and couldn’t wait to try them out. Tabooze tablet cocktail infusions are so cute and can’t wait to introduce this tiny wonder to my girlfriends. The tablet itself doesn’t contain any alcohol but on the back of the package there are clear instructions on how to make your drink. I think this is a great idea and the drink was really good to my surprise. Visit www.gettabooze.com for more details on how to make delicious drinks for your next party.

So there you have it I have shared all of my favorite products I am currently loving this month. If you have any products that you love to use please share with a comment below.

Ralph Lauren Spring Summer 2016 Womenswear-4 Looks I Love!

RL Logo

Happy Friday!!

You know how we do here on the blog on Fridays! Glasses in the air, pinkies out and “clink” we made it!!

 The designers did an outstanding job this season with presenting great collections that made you actually want to skip three seasons and go right back into summer. I was very impressed with my favorites and of course surprised by some designers that I never gave a second look at. The presentation from Ralph Lauren made me long for summer days again and I could see myself relaxing in the East Coast society resort of the Hamptons on a bright beautiful sunny day in many of the pieces. The strapless flowing evening gowns were beautiful and perfect for a summer night on the town.

The entire collection was clean cut and classic in my opinion and I could see myself wearing all 48 pieces presented. The handbags were also amazing and well paired with outfits that completed the look from head to toe. The 4 looks I love are below but if you can check out the entire collection….very nice.

Oscar de la Renta Spring Summer 2016 Womenswear- 4 Looks I Love!

Oscar in white

 

The passing of our beloved designer is still relevant and I can’t imagine the pressure that Peter Copping had to bare for this challenge of presenting a fabulous collection and yet still honor Oscar’s legacy. Well in my opinion he did a fantastic job presenting this high-glamour collection. The location of the event which took place at Prince George Ballroom served the perfect background for such artwork to gracefully glide down the runway. Peter provided elaborate attention to detail and immaculate construction which we all knew Oscar was known for and presented to us season after season.

Everything about the Oscar de la Renta show spoke love and beauty from the outstanding collection to his favorite flower a carnation that adorned each and every chair. This collection had a twist of Spanish influence, old school cinema greats and of course fabulous ball gowns. This collection was everything glamourous from the ruby red fabric to the playful mixture of suede, lace, silk and frayed edges. The 59 looks that were presented were amazing and I seriously wanted to post all 59 looks, however my favorites are below. As my personal tribute to Mr. Oscar de la Renta I have posted his show for you viewing pleasure…enjoy.

Monique Lhuillier Spring Summer 2016 Womenswear-4 Looks I Love!

“Who’s that lady?” by the Isley Brothers should have been the music for this show.

Monique always delivers the most glamourous cocktail dresses and ball gowns each season. She is one of my favorite designers and she never disappoints me. Monique created beautiful dresses and gowns using bold and bright colors that created the right whimsical elements but also keeping the femininity solid. She was able to use many colors of fuchsia, cobalt, strawberry red and spring green in surprising combinations that was captivating to the eye. The Arc, Skylight at Moynihan Station was the perfect backdrop for this amazing collection to be featured.

The dresses from this collection seem to whisper “sweet nothings” to all in attendance as they graced the runway. This collection was very ladylike and dainty and I can see these designs at every tea party and brunch in the spring. This collection contained 39 amazing looks and it was a very hard decision to choose just 4 because I love them all. Great job Monique!!!!

Rag & Bone Spring Summer 2016- 4 Looks I love!

Rag and Bone Logo

 

NYFW is slowly coming to an end but gosh what a season!!

First off let me give a huge KUDO to the brand’s managing partner David Neville for coming up with a unique way for the norms to have a chance to attend the show this season. The promotion was simple, you order a ride using Uber and enter the code “RBSS16” under promotions and select the “Runway” option and your ride is free and you score two tickets to the show! That was a first and maybe just maybe other designers will think of special ways to give away the covenant tickets to their shows next season….seemed to work for Givenchy.

So I my friends was not one of the lucky “Uber” riders but as much money as I have spent in NY taxi rides seems like I should have received something for that adventure. Ok so out of the 29 looks that was presented I have to choose only 4 but you know that by now I only choose 4 and they are featured below. The entire collection was really good worth researching to view all looks.
