Thanks to BrandBacker and Valentia, I was recently given the chance to try the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum. I have used and reviewed another Valentia product before and loved it. When I was asked to try this product, I was very excited because I know they have some really good products. The Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum is another keeper.

Would you like to know how I save with health, beauty, and wellness Groupons? Yes. You. Do. A few months ago I taught you all how to save with Groupon Coupon, now I want you to know about Groupon’s main website. I know a lot of people have heard about and used Groupon, but I was surprised to see how many hadn’t down either of those things. A few days ago, a few of my sorority sisters and I planned a girl’s night out. Some of them used Groupon for the very first time when we bought our wine and paint class. I was shocked.
FTC: I used a voucher the company gave me to purchase the Studio Gear Total Clarification Exfoliating Pads. This is an honest review.
Are the Studio Gear Total Clarification Exfoliating Pads with Beta Hydroxy the fastest dark spot remover? Well they are the fastest I have ever used. I am so glad Studio Gear gave me a voucher to use. I can’t thank them enough. I was going to buy similar pads from Avon, but they were sold out. Thank God! Seriously. I have used numerous products to get rid of dark spots. These pads started working in a week. A WEEK?! You read that all the way right. I highly recommend them. Get it for $35 dollars.
Finally brown girls can rejoice. Nude Barre is here with shade of nude pantyhose for our legs too. The prices start at $12 and go up. Their sizes go up to a XXL. The fancier Beyonce style glitter fishnets are around $55. They even have underwear and stockings for children. To find your shade, either buy one of the swatch kits or go to this link on Nude Barre’s website and hold the underside of your arm up to each shade. Whichever shade blends with your arm is yours!

I was sent a concealer palette Rosewholesale.com and asked to review their website. The website has men and women’s clothes, a few plus size items, bags, shoes, and other accessories. The thing that I like the most about the Rosewholesale.com are the beauty products. I love websites with low priced beauty products. The whole website is super affordable, but I love that the beauty products are so affordable because I can buy tons of eyeshadow and concealer palettes, makeup tools, and more for less!
Last night was my first night at this year’s Columbia Style Week, but it was night two of the week’s worth of events. The fashion panel and celebrity fashion show was packed to the brim! I got to see my friends and fellow stylists Josh Ratliff and Brian Maynor speak on the fashion panel. Speaking of the fashion panel. I recommend going to next year’s fashion panel if you would like some advice on how to get into the fashion industry. All of the panelist gave amazing advice that anyone could use in any industry, if you were able to hear it over the screaming from the random drunk girl in the front.
Then I saw my friend and fellow blogger Teowonna Clifton from That Teowonna, She rocked it out in a cute toffee sequin dress that showed off her toned legs and decolletage. The beautiful dress also had a scarf to match. I would have had footage for you guys, but I was sitting upstairs and the angle would have made you throw up. That’s not fashionable at all.
Notes to make next year’s event better. You know I gotta put my two cents in. Please put on your event information( date, time, place) on the website. Several people, myself included, went to the Sheraton Hotel because we thought that was where the event was being held. Next time drop the twitter feed backdrop. It was distracting. Also use the two host you had for the fashion show as moderators. One could stand on each side of the panel and hand off a mic.
Also use two mics for a panel of that size or cut down the panel size to 3 or 4 people. Last but not least, have the event at a restaurant or event space with a great AC unit. I have been to Social Bar several times. The air only blows out for at least 2 inches from the vents and ducts. That means that the cool air never even has a chance to make it across the room. People were hot and sweaty. This is South Carolina. We are experiencing a deep, dirty South summer. We need air.
But all in all the event was packed, informative, and people seemed to be having a blast! I can’t wait for tonight’s event.
I recently received an email about a new brand of organic nail lacquer called Curtsy & Bow. The email piqued my interest because the information stated that the lacquer lasted up to 10 days and was 3free ( dbp, toluene, and formaldehyde free). Of course you know I had to ask for a sample.
I was quite surprised at how fast my samples came. Conveniently they arrived in my mailbox the day I was going to repaint my nails. I hurriedly opened my package and was delighted to see not one, but two bottles of Curtsy & Bow nail lacquer from the inaugural Yacht Club Collection. After examining the nail lacquer, I am pretty sure that Curtsy & Bow founder Melissa Huynh is on to something here.
