Sponsored Review – MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil

Hello beauties!!

I have had a heck of a week which I will update you guys on once I’ve had a moment to rest + get myself sorted. Until then, I have a new review for you!!! Yay!!

CYMERA_20141114_225932

I was lucky enough to try out the MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil (Click here to read more about the product) + I must say, I am impressed! This product has improved my hair so so much. The product is said to help minimize thinning hair, add in needed nutrients + can promote hair growth. The oil smells nice + light but luxurious! The cap to this is a dropper which is really nice because you can control the amount of product you use…a little goes a long way (I show this in a vid on my instagram).  The packaging looks amazingly sleek + chic + just really draws your eye to it! Definitely a beautiful high end goodie you must try out!!!!

HOW I USE IT:

CYMERA_20141114_230111

After I wash my hair, I pat dry really well with a town then apply some leave in conditioner, After .I brush/comb my conditioner through, I add in the oil to my ends and then I massage it into my scalp. After those steps, I just let my hair air dry + once it does…OMG, my hair is so so soft + shiny. BEAUTIFUL!!

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS:

5-stars Rilakkuma

I totally give this product a 5 out of 5 because not only did I see instant result after my first use (and still to this day), but I have seen growth as well + that’s major for me since I’ve been trying to grow my hair out + for a bit it grew then just stalled but this definitely gave it that extra boost to start growing again. Oh + I forgot, you can use this on your body as well!! The only con I think of at the moment is the price. On the website this product retails for $99!! That’s a lot of money but if you want to splurge….DO IT!! Hahahaha. All in all, I am happy with this product + once I’m out I will probably purchase this again + try more of the MONAT products as well.

I hope this was informative for you + I will be back soon with more post so stay tuned!!

Until Next Time…

Sponsored Review – Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery

piZap_1411710411377

 

Hello guys!!!!

I hope you are all well!! I know I have been gone for way too long + I truly apologize! As you know I tend to be very busy with life + sometimes those things absolutely come first!! I have also been making YouTube videos so definitely check those out! I plan to do a life update video soon so I can let you all know how I’ve been getting on!

Today I am going to do a quick review for you on the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery cream I received from iFabbo (check out this product here http://bit.ly/DSRSPF50). I could not use this product all over my face for too long because it ended up being too heavy for me + made my skin even more oily (I have oily/combo skin).

20140925_215831~2

Price: $65 for 1.7 oz

Dermalogica is a well know skin care line + seems to be talked about a lot but for me this wasn’t the best option. I want to try more of their products but something that’s oil free + works with sensitive skin! The product is actually nice in the since of all the benefits it has, especially SPF50! I now only use it in my under eye are to see if it will help with fine lines…I will let you know after further research! 😉

Below I have entered zoomed in photos of the packaging details which list ingredients, info, + just additional information I felt you all might find helpful!

RATING AND OVERALL THOUGHTS

3-5stars Rilakkuma

Overall I rate this product a 3 out of 5. It have great benefits but it was just not right for my particular skin type. I will continue to use it under my eyes to see if maybe it will work as an eye cream for me during the day. Trail + error are always going to be the case when it comes to skin care + not everything is for everyone however, I hope you guys give this a try + see how it works for you!!

I will back real soon so keep an eye out for some new stuffs!!! ^_^ ♥ ♥

Until Next Time…

Closet Confidential Tag!

 

IMG_20140605_203656-1

Hey guys!!

Hope you all are having a great, fabulous, and fashionable day! Speaking of fashion, I was watching YouTube and I watched a few people do the “Closet Confidential Tag”. Since I’m currently on hiatus from YouTube (trying to decide to end it completely or start a new channel), I decided to do this tag in blog form! I hope you enjoy and lets get right to it!!

Question 1: What is the oldest item in your closet?

CYMERA_20140608_004852

Yeah, I’ve had this shirt for a while (since Burning Crusade came) but I do have older items but they are in the closet back at my parents home. 😦

Question 2: What is the newest item?

CYMERA_20140608_005000

I bought these jeans from moddeals.com. I actually bought these 2 times smaller so I could have some weight loss inspiration! Oh, they were onlu $10 a pair!!

Question 3: What is the most expensive item?

CYMERA_20140608_004745

Currently the most expensive item in my closet (which is a bit odd lol) are these Oscar De La Renta sunglasses. I bought this pair and another pair back when I lived in Cincinnati. I have no idea where the second pair has gone and I looooved those. 😦 Sad Panda.

Question 4: What is the cheapest/most affordable item?

 CYMERA_20140608_004614

I got this sweater from Torrid like a year ago for $1…yes, I said $1!! Best deal ever because it looks great on especially with a nice cami and tights!

Question 5: What was the biggest bargain?

CYMERA_20140608_004704

I know this isn’t a super cheap item but I thought it was a major bargain especially since I have been looking for a faux leather/leather jacket for ages! I found this baby on the Torrid website for $98 and I can pair it with almost everything. I will get so much wear out of this!

Question 6: What was the biggest waste of money?

20140529_112814

This was the dumbest purchase of my existence!! I bought this after “winning” an auction. This was not even the item I bid for! They sent me a whack knock off that looks absolutely terrible. That’s what I get I guess. I want to get rid of this thing actually! SMH….SMH :/

The Last Question (demand rather lol) in the Tag is: Show us your three favourite items right now!

CYMERA_20140608_205642CYMERA_20140608_205615CYMERA_20140608_205723

I know the shirt in the middle may be hard to see but it’s a beautiful long and flowy white blouse I got from Torrid. It’s completely sheer and has lace detailing around the shoulders. I love this top however, I have a hard time keeping white clean because I always get soy sauce or make up on it lol. The first item is a dress I got from Torrid for like $10 or so and I have yet to wear it. Trying to find a good strapless bra first. The shoes are so dope!! I love these shoes. They are wedge sneakers with silver studs… AWESOME SAUCE!!

Well that’s the end of the tag you guys! I tag all of you to do this and allow us to be your own personal creepers all up in your closet like R. Kelly! 😉

Until next time…

Purple Lipstick Craze

IMG_20140615_151509-2

Hello beauties!!

I actually just recently (within the lats couple of years) have gotten into really loving lipsticks. Most of the time I was strictly a gloss/balm kind of girl and was content with that. I always thought my lips were too big to wear lipstick but I soon found out that was a lie and I embrace these kissers!

I always loved purple but didn’t know just how pretty a purple lipstick could look on! I still have yet to fine the perfect nude lippie but that’s a whole different story. I wanted to share with you guys my fave purple lipsticks and I want you to share your faves with me as well…I might need a shade you have! 😉

SWATCHES:

IMG_20140615_143248IMG_20140615_145639

LIPPIE TYPES:

Medusa – Glossy, almost like a MAC Amplified lipstick

Violet – A creamy satin matte

Pure Heroine – A MAC Amplified finish

Landinski – Matte Finish

Kooky- Matte Finish w/ a somewhat creamy texture (very long lasting)

**Medusa and Pure Heroine look very similar in photos!! Also, Landinski looks like a dupe for Pure Heroine in a Matte**

I know these all look similar but they look a bit different when worn. Also, the above shades work great with my skin tone so they are my go to’s at the moment! What do you  guys think? Leave a comment and tell me what your favorite purple shades are!!

Until Next Time…

My April + May Faves 2014

IMG_20140524_002240

Hello there great people of the world! Hope everyone is feeling awesome!! Today feesl really nice out but instead of going out, I decided to do a blog post about my monthly faves. I do plan to go out later though ^_^.  I really haven’t done a favorites…anything in a while, not on my blog or on youtube, so I felt it was about that time + this time I will try to stick with it as much as possible. Okay, enough of my rambling + lets get to it sugars!!

MAKEUP

IMG_20140524_003800

From left to right: Shades are Redwood, Guava, + Mauve. Bought these for $1 each at ShopMissA.com. These are really pigmented + look great on light + darker skin tones. Love’em!!

IMG_20140524_015419

I first heard about this product on YouTube + have been hooked since I found it in a beauty supply store while in Georgia while on a business trip. I also found it in my local beauty supply store + continue to use it. It works so well + could be compared to the Urban Decay Primer Potion. My eye shadow last ALL day + I just love it! It’s about $4. The only thing I wish was different is the packaging. If it was in a squeeze tube, I would be in heaven for sure!

IMG_20140524_015546

I love this Mascara so much! This is my 2nd tube + I will continue to use it when I want a less expensive yet super effective mascara. This mascara helps your lashes to grow + give you that false lash look. Such a great product! I think this was like $8.99 at my local Walgreens.

SKIN/BODY CARE

IMG_20140524_015811

I have been on a Rimmel kick lately so of course I wanted to try out their eye makeup remover. I must say, I really like this! I can get a great deal of makeup off with one swipe + that make things so much easier, especially when you just want to hurry + go to bed! This was about $6 at Walgreens.

IMG_20140524_012044

This product is a repurchase for me + I still love it. I use this along with the Rimmel eye makeup remover to remove everything before washing. This is $7 at Pretty + Cute

IMG_20140524_020123

I actually have had this in my cabinet for a bit now + just started using this combo + it’s a good one!! This combo helps so much with keeping my oily/combination skin in check which is great because I find myself having to blot a lot less!! I received this as a gift from Olay but I know for certain this can be found at drugstores!

IMG_20140524_015110

I love this little set. It has everything you need for proper grooming however, I don’t find the foil head attachment very useful at all. It doesn’t seem to make any difference to me. Maybe I’m just doing it all wrong lol,  This was $19.99 at Walgreens + comes with a brush head which helps aid in keeping ingrown hairs at bay.

FRAGRANCE

IMG_20140524_004355

I  received this in a birthday package a friend sent me + fell in love with it! This is my “Grown + Sexy” night out fragrance + I plan on buying the full size as soon as I can.  I have no idea why I didn’t try this scent out sooner but better late than never I say! You can find the fragrance at Sephora.

FASHION

IMG_20140524_004826

I love love love this faux leather jacket from Torrid. I had been looking for one forever + I finally found this and had to have it. I got it from the website for $98.50. This jacket looks so good with so many looks. I may need to do a lookbook styling this baby!!

IMG_20140524_005330

This watch is so cool. I really like over sized watches + think they are so chic with jeans, a graphic tee + blazers or with a nice billowy blouse. This one is really loose on my wrist so I have to push it up a bit but I don’t mind that at all. I got it from ModDeals + I think you should check out all the cool watches they have for really inexpensive cost!!

IMG_20140524_014554

I am really loving black + white wardrobe pieces. Anyone who knows me knows I love wearing all black everything but I have recently really have gotten into wearing a lot of white as well. The jeans are from Torrid + they are the skinny fit  for $58.50 + this kick ass Dalek  shirt  (I am an obsessed Doctor Who fan since childhood) is from 6dollarshirts for $8.00 ( larger sizes cost a bit more).

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed my favorites for April + May + please look out for my future favorites post as well as other deep post + beauty post.

Until Next Time…

The Sales Associate was the nicest person + very savvy when I asked questions. This was by far some of the best customer service I’ve received. I felt welcomed in the store + just had an overall great shopping experience.

CYMERA_20140517_012719

The wall of Mask may very well be my favorite section! I am a sucker for a great mask + it was actually pretty hard finding mask that I haven’t tried yet lol. I am addicted + this section gave me LIFE!

CYMERA_20140517_012539

The checkout area was also very cute. Reminds me of how I wish to build my studio once I get back to designing and styling full time. Look at the pen + card holders! Soooo pretty!!!! **Insert girly squeal here**

My Current Plus Size Must Haves! – Chic n’ Black Styling

Hear ye,  Hear ye…

Curves are sexy, curves are not about size or weight…it’s about the wonderful feminine shape of the female body…Or guy in the sense of Legolas (” Hey baby let me get yo number…Oh, Legolas I am so sorry…) Hehehe just kidding ;).

I am a tall and curvy woman and yes I have my hang ups just like everyone else and I do want to lose weight however, I wouldn’t change my curves for the world. The beauty of showing off your body is by finding clothing that fits and accents the best parts of your body! I found 3 items that I plan to add to my wardrobe and maybe you may just love it too…TRUST ME, I’M A STYLIST!!

Anyone who knows me knows I am a sucker for BLACK CLOTHING. It’s so chic and sexy but maybe not for everyone. The looks that I found below are black but of course feel free to find these items in colors that make YOU feel confident and sexy!

Look 1: The Little Black Dress – Conservative Chic

40m  

I love this dress so much for every body shape. This is a plus size dress however a straight size individual could rock this and feel fab in it. The shape is great and I love how the hem is right below the knee. This dress is modest yet sexy at the same time!

WHERE TO BUY: Plus Size Fix for $34.99 – City Chic Turtle Neck Sleeveless Dress

FOR DAY TIME: Wear with a printed scarf, a gold boyfriend watch, skinny belt and nude heels for a chic, comfy and polished look.

FOR NIGHT TIME: Wear with a bold necklace, tennis bracelet and a bright or print heel for a sexy yet classy come hither look.

Look 2: Little Black Dress – Edgy Chic

lf-1

l love a little edge with everything I wear but I don’t want to overkill on edge hahaha. This dress is a statement all on it’s own so you don’t want to over accessorize. The tiny cutouts are fun and sexy and makes this dress really fun. The faux-leather gives it that rocker feel without being over the top.

WHERE TO BUY: The Pyramid Collection for $89.95 – Perforated Black Dress

FOR DAY TIME: Wear with a cute cardigan , trendy stacked bracelets (Click here for great ones!), a cute single strap heel or simple booties and an over-sized clutch.

FOR NIGHT TIME: Wear with a bold statement ring, tights (depending on weather), a cool pair of Jeffery Campbell Litas, gold chain necklace and bold lipstick!

Look 3: Faux Leather Jacket

– Edgy Chic Part 2

13.4

I have been on the hunt for a super hot and figure flattering faux-leather jacket and when I saw this one I fell in love about 2200 times! Hahaha. This jacket has a sexy feminine touch with that bad ass girl feel as well. I love everything about it!!

WHERE TO BUY: Plus Size Fix – (I am not certain if this is still available but I LOVE it) 

FOR DAY TIME: Wear with a cute plain white top or white and simple graphic tee , a cute shoulder bag that adds a pop of color, white pants, cool wedge sneakers and a statement necklace.

FOR NIGHT TIME: Wear with a strapless red jumpsuit (check this one out!), a sparkly statement necklace, a studded clutch and pair of killer strappy heels! OH LAWD, sexy sexy!!

I hope you all enjoyed my little tips and tricks! I love the pieces so much and feel that they are basics that you can have in your closet and mix and match with so many things. Make sure to keep on the lookout for more amazing and fun styling tips!

Until Next Time…

LOVE, PEACE, + SHOPPING RECEIPTS!
