I was so grateful to receive a full sized sample of the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask was sooooo good. It smelled so fragrant when I opened the jar up. I couldn’t help myself. I just took another whiff of the mask. Like right now. I sniffed it. It is $25 on Amazon, and is a Prime item.
This mask dried my oily skin up. When I was done with the mask, my skin looked bright, clean, and very clear. It didn’t look anything like the hot greasy mess that walked into the bathroom earlier. The mask is supposed to be used for 15-20 minutes, and all you have to do is use the tiniest amount. I have a feeling that the 4 oz. jar is going to last me a long time.

I recently received the And I Don’t Care: Whipped Hair & Body Moisturizing Butter from Heritage 1933, and it is another winner.

For ever purchase, the company will give free hair care products to women and children in need. They also have other bath, beauty, and hair products on their website.

As you may remember from a few months ago, I am now a paid subscriber for the Beautycon Box. I love these boxes and recently did a video and blog post about my first Beautycon Box– The Bethany Mota themed box. They give you over $100 worth of products and gift cards to awesome stores. This box was curated by YouTube beauty guru and internet phenom Grav3yardGirl.
I found out about the #BeautyConBFF beauty box on Snapchat-follow me at thefatandskinny- and decided to get one to unbox for you! Honestly…let’s be all the way real here. I saw what was in the box and said, “OK BeautyCon! Take my money!!!!” So they did. They took it all, but I can’t even be mad at them. Inside my box are items from Nike, Colourpop, Garnier, Maybelline, and more!
Where would we be without ASOS and ASOS Curve plus size work pants? I haven’t done a Currently Craving blog post in while and suddenly got inspired by a conversation in one of my favorite Facebook groups. The ladies of the groups were discussing how hard it is to find pantsuits and decent, professional looking workwear in general. If it is hard for straight size women to find decent workwear, imagine how hard it is for plus sized women. Cue ASOS.

Let the Fashion Trend Battle Begin:
NYFW Fall 2016 was a fierce battle with many trends fighting it out for the death. We have officially gone from have clear concrete trends to too many micro trends all at once. The main battle has been the same battle that has been going on for the past few seasons. The 90’s trends have been duking it out with the 70’s trend. There also seems to be battle between the minimalism of the Normcore trend that was big a few seasons ago and has its roots in the 90’s and some of the 1930’s glamour that helped influence the decadence of the 70’s. (more…)

The minimalism of the previous seasons are truly a thing of the past. Spring 2016 couture was truly decadent in nature. Even the most bland of garments had a little something extra going on. Many garments had low cut necklines, pajama dressing is still in, and flouncy chiffon and lace are still a favorite with extra beading in the mix.
Hello everybody. This video of me unboxing my winter 2016 Walmart Beauty Box is kinda late because of the holidays and such. I purchased this beauty box myself. It is $5 a box, soooo $20 a year. The $5 covers the shipping and handling. Not bad. I usually suggest this box over other beauty boxes, especially if this is your first time ordering one.
FTC: Influenster sent me this can of Dove Dry Spray. This is an honest review.
Happy holidays everyone! I just received my can of Dove Dry Spray from Influenster for the Unilever Dry Spray VoxBox challenge, and I couldn’t be happier. This isn’t my first time trying Dove Dry Spray. I received a sample earlier this year, and I loved it.
Hey everybody! I have a new product review for you. Body Merry sent me three free products to try via Brandbacker.com. I was excited to try them because they worked on beauty issues that I have been dealing with, and I had never heard of Body Merry before whose name slightly sounded like Bloody Mary in my head so I was like yea I will try these products. Body Merry has a bunch of products on Amazon and offer Prime shipping!I really wish I could have done a video review for you all. I had house guests this weekend, so that wouldn’t have happened. (more…)
You guys have to get this. It is a pretty smooth serum that has some great anti-aging properties. The ingredients are great too. No alcohols, sulfates, or parabens. It is $15.79 on Amazon, and they have prime shipping. I have been using this on my hands, and the skin definitely looks brighter. I am going to continue to use it. I put it on my face and hands before I moisturize, but after I use toner. I received this awesome product from Brandbacker.com.
Plus size clothing line One One Three is back and it is bangin’!!!I don’t know if you remember One One Three, but I blogged about them here a few years ago. I have have always loved their clothes and style. I think they are edgy and fun. Tres cool y’all! You should check out their collection for the summer. The line features pants, tops, outerwear, and even swimsuits in that hot neon tropical Miami style that is super popular right now! The pieces are moderately priced and are UK sized 18-26. I think that should be a US 14-22. Photos from One One Three.
I just want you all to know that I thoroughly enjoyed the fall 2015 couture fashion shows. They are giving me all the feels. Sometimes I am skeptical of what I see. Sometime designers either do too little or too much with couture. This season though… was amazing.
I received these Schwarzkopf Ultime products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes a few weeks ago. I shot the unboxing video, but I didn’t get to post it. You can find these products exclusively at your local Walmart. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer helped create the line. I was worried that these products wouldn’t work on my natural African-American textured hair, but at least one of them did. (more…)
Y’all I finally bought the $5 bottle of Lottabody Curl and Style Milk. I now see why everyone was raving about it. This product keeps my hair sooooo soft and manageable. You can use it for twist outs too. That is what I did. I used it on my twists and on my wash and gos.
I recently bought the NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette from Ulta, and I love it. I can use it for soooo many things. You can too. I have used it for my eyebrows, for contouring my face, and hiding hyperpigmentation. I recommend this product because it really does conceal, correct, and contour.
