Where Have I Been and What I’m Wearing
Hey Everybody! It has been a long time since I wrote a blog post, but I have been traveling and I was battling a bad cold. I really didn’t feel like writing blog posts while I was hacking up my lungs. Anyway. eShakti sent me this super cute lobster applique skirt back in February. I couldn’t take pictures of it because I was sick, but I tried it on and it fit.
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.
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.

FTC: I received this dress courtesy of Forever 21. This is an honest review.
Hey everyone! I received a very pretty, very cool dress from Forever 21. I am saying cool because it is the kind of dress that you can beat the heat in. I don’t think this dress is still on sale on the website, but they have some other equally as cute short, belted dresses in their plus size section. I am wearing a 3x. I normally wear an 18/20 or 3x. I can say that is does fit me very well, and it has an elastic waist. I think this dress was under $30.
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.
Boohoo.com now has plus size clothes!!!! I always wondered when/if they would be getting plus sizes. I am so excited that they gifted me a few items for review. Thanks Boohoo.com! They let me pick three items of choice, and now that I have seen everything in the flesh…I am in LURVE!
The thing I like about Boohoo is that they have a lot of trendy clothes mixed in with some basics and very practical items as well for a very, very good price. Everything I received was either $36 or $40. I got the Charlotte Metallic Contrast Trim Jersey Jacket, Lillian Graphic Print Woven Top, Evie Mesh Hem Panel Midi Dress. I can’t wait to wear this stuff. 🙂
Also get 25% off at Boohoo.com with the code- GET25. Please note that I do not know how long that codes lasts.
I bought the wonderful Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder at Walmart last week. It is a pretty great powder I can see myself using throughout the spring and summer to keep the shine off of my nose. I love it and it only cost around $3. Try to use a fluffy powder brush with it or a kabuki brush. You don’t have to use a ton of it on the brush because a little bit goes along way. Lightly puff the Rimmel Stay Matte powder on your face or you will end up looking like a clown. The color I used is called transparent. They have other colors, but I think transparent is more universal. The powder says it lasts 5 hours. I don’t know if it lasted five hours, but my nose was grease free for quite a bit which is great because it usually looks full of shine. I recommend the Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Powder.
I finally got an Influenster VoxBox. A few days ago I received the Influenster Holiday VoxBox. It is amazing. Basically you go on the website and make a few reviews. Those reviews and other tasks, like linking your social media accounts, give you points. The point eventually lead up to being picked for a VoxBox. I am so happy received my VoxBox the other day. I actually had planned on buying two items in the box before, so I am glad I saved my money. Check out everything I got in the video.

Hey guys! I wanted to quickly leave you with my one week Fabulace Hair review over the holiday weekend. I am jsut so in love with this hair. It is amazing. Check out the video for all the deets. Also check out this post for the latest Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.
Bond No. 9 New York Musk is the great new fragrance from Bond No. 9. This warm eau de parfume is a unisex fragrance that is sure to entice the senses. I love the warmth of Bond No. 9 New York Musk. The musk and sandalwood scents are strong. Warmth is the number one reason I love musk scents to begin with, but Bond No. 9 put the right amount of lightness in it with the grapefruit flower and black currant.
They always say a musk acts as a pheromone to help you attract a mate. While I know there are many naysayers out there, I can attest to the fact that whenever I wear a musk perfume I do get more attention. Since this is a holiday release, you should cop this for your holiday parties. 😉 Bond No. 9 New York Musk will appear on-counter in November 2012, Bond No. 9 New York Musk will be sold at Bond No. 9’s five New York stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and bondno9.com. Price: 100ml, $330; 50ml, $260. Photo from Bond No. 9.
Dark and Lovely 6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum’s is a horrible hair product. It is supposed to help your relaxer last longer after you wash your hair. Fail!!! My hair had more ripples in it than the Blue Ridge Mountains. It did not help anti-revert my hair or whatever you call it. It left my hair very dry and brittle. The product sucks. I give it two thumbs down. If I had more thumbs…
Last week the lovely people at Leading Lady sent me some full figured bras to review. I was a little skeptical at first because I can never seem to find the right bras in my size, but something told me to give it a try anyway. Just a sidenote before I get into the review, Leading Lady makes nursing bras, but since I am not nursing I didn’t review those. Check them out here if you are interested.
