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.

Get The Boot With River Island

riverisland
This is an honest review. I was gifted these boots from River Island.

riverisland

I was recently contacted by someone from River Island to check out their products. I had never shopped there before because they used to only carry straight sizes and I am plus sized. A while ago the British retailer introduced plus sizes to their product line. They come in sizes 14-24, and are actually really cute. That isn’t much of a surprise considering how fashionable the straight size line is.

Health, Beauty, & Wellness Groupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

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.

Beauty Bit- Rosewholesale.com Review

rosewholesale.com

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!

Beauty Bit- BA STAR Holiday Red Lip Pencil Review

ba star holdiay lip pencil

Thanks to Brandbackers(partnered post) I was gifted the BA STAR Holiday Red Lip Pencil to review. So umm can we talk about how great that lip pencil is…. It is only $8.75!!!! I think it is great because it is a good matte lip color, but it doesn’t dry my lips out and make them peel. Plus I can put gloss or lip chap on top and it doesn’t move. It is really hard to find a good matte lip color that doesn’t move of peel my lips up.  Because BA STAR is a cosmetics company for cheerleaders and dancers, the matte lip is formulated to last. Trust me you will have to reapply after eating yes, but I didn’t have to reapply until after my first meal and third drink.  The Holiday Red color is perfect for me because I love a lush red lip. The color looks so good with my skin tone, but it looks great on other skin tones too! BA STAR was nice enough to give me a coupon code (BBLIPS) to share with you all for 50% off. You better go run and get these lip pencils!

TFAS Reviews: Silver Linings by Chu Shu New York

Silver Linings by Chu Shu Shoe Liners

Silver Linings by Chu Shu Shoe Liners

A few days ago I received four free pairs of Silver Linings by Chu Shu New York odor absorbing shoe liners. The company claims that by “Harnessing the power of silver, SILVER LININGS help keep feet fresh and odor-free while also preserving shoe interiors.” To be quite honest with you, I was a little weary of putting some silver shoe pads in my shoe. I didn’t know if they would really work, or if they were some kind of gimmick.

Luckily for me, I tried them out on a hot, humid day. I was happy that the Silver Linings liners were thin, because I already have to wear shoe pads in my shoes for arch and heel support. The thinness allowed me to wear them without feeling uncomfortable. Actually they made the balls of my feet more comfortable since most of my shoe pads stop before the ball of my foot. The fabric on the Silver Linings by Chu Shu New York shoe liners was soft and velvety. My foot was sweating in my shoe, but the shoe didn’t smell after I took them off, so it seems like they do work after all. You can get a 5-pack of these shoe liners with antimicrobial silver-based technology for $19, but I have two pairs Silver Linings by Chu Shu New York shoe liners. The contest is only for my Instagram followers, so go check out the contest there!

Partnered Post: British E-tailer House of Fraser Has A Dress Selection For Everyone

House of Fraser Petite Dress Collection

House of Fraser recently approached me to check out their website to see what they had to offer. While I had heard of the website before, I was thoroughly impressed with their dress collection. The problem I have with American retailers is the fact that they don’t really offer much for other sizes, and when they do it is often very dull and boring. British retailers, on the other hand, always have cute and stylish options for the plus and petite woman. I guess you can call them the 2Ps.

Partnered Post- Duo Shoes Has On Trend Shoes That Fit

blue suede shoes and testured leathers from DUO

If you have wide feet it can be difficult to find on-trend shoes that fit. Looking at beautiful shoes can be so disheartening when you know they’ll be too tight. But with so many retailers to choose from, comfortable, stylish shoes are becoming easier to find.
Yet still so many of us wear ill-fitting shoes and not just those of us with wide feet. Recent studies proved this as 8/10 women asked own 9 pairs of shoes they’ve worn once, twice or not at all. Now that’s a lot of shoes! To ease the pain of wearing ill-fitting shoes it’s a good idea to measure your feet prior to buying. With the likes of DUO offering shoes in a range of widths, from narrow to wide, it is possible to find the perfect pair. Grab a tape measure and check out this guide to measuring your feet correctly…
