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!

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.

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

moniquelhuillier logo 2

 

“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!!!!

New York Fashion Week Is Coming!!!!!!!!

New York Fashion Week

 

Happy Tuesday and Welcome September!

You already know what this post is about right??? You guessed it NEW YORK FASHION WEEK 2016!

I am very excited to be attending NYFW in September because I have always attended in February where old man winter was hmmmm not so nice so to be there in warmer weather is exciting. I honestly didn’t have any plans to attend this year however a good friend of mine was like “let’s go”! I was still debating if I wanted to go because I wasn’t prepared for this season, I didn’t send out any requests for invites and my wardrobe was not NYFW ready to say the least. I begin to get my thoughts together and see how I could make this work so I started thinking to myself….”wait a min you HAVE to go this year this is a moment in history for you”!

My first NYFW attendance was the last time the shows were in the tents at Bryant Park, my second NYFW attendance was the first year that they were showing at Lincoln Center and now this year will be the first time showing in downtown in two new spaces Skylight at Moynihan and Skylight Clarkson Square. Now I tell you this was not planned but wow what a moment in history for me will this be because of the many “firsts” I have experienced at NYFW. I have managed to score some invites to shows that will be at the Skylight but I am more excited to be in attendance of some shows that will showcase emerging designers since my PR firm specializes in representing fresh new talent.

I am also looking forward to the street styles that will drape the sidewalks and turn them into catwalks right in the heart of things. I will be tweeting and putting pictures up on Instagram so stay tuned to all my social media accounts to get a glimpse of what’s going on during NYFW 2016. I have posted some pictures from Bryant Park and Lincoln Center and can’t wait to post new pictures of Skylight. If you can’t make it up to NY to be in the hustle and bustle then you can enjoy the shows live by following www.newyorkfashionweeklive.com you will have the best seat in the house.

Holiday Soiree at Neiman Marcus-Hosted By Trina of Baby Shopaholic

Hello!! I hope that you are doing great and Thank You for stopping by my blog today!

Yesterday, Tuesday December 9th I was invited by Trina of http://www.thebabyshopaholic.com a well-known Atlanta blogger and also Neiman Marcus beauty ambassador to come out and participate in Neiman Marcus Holiday Soiree. I was very excited when I received her invite, okay more like over the top excited because I knew I was in for a great event. Neiman Marcus is an experience itself and it was very hard to stroll through this luxurious store and fight the urge to pull out one of my credit cards and do damage.

The holiday soiree was held in the hip Cusp section where there were plenty of beautiful garments that would have you red carpet ready for any upcoming event. There was a mini fashion show that gave us visuals of some amazing outfits that would have you looking amazing and some really cool gifts that were price point affordable for everyone on your list. There was champagne and lite bites for the guest to enjoy while taking notes on the hottest fashion accessories this season. The event was great and there were plenty of high profile bloggers who came out to support and everyone in attendance left with a GREAT gift bag. One particular item in the gift bag which I was in “awe” over and can’t wait to blog about it was the Patchology energizing eye patches that are all the rave right now so please check back because I will be doing a post on this amazing product.

I had an amazing time at this event and connected with some great women which is always a plus since I am trying to build my tribe for 2015! Below are some pictures from the event that I took with my Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 which I love and I am sure that you all know that by now HA!
