No Fuss MakeUp…

I love makeup but I honestly don’t like it when it’s heavy, overdone, or takes over 10 minutes to apply. I’m always checking out these Youtube channels for new application techniques. I never want to look overdone, I love wearing makeup because it completes the look I’m trying to achieve but I don’t want it to look like it’s wearing me :-). Since the weather is changing I wanted to try golden hues. I love a sun kissed complexion that glows and I will be changing my hair color back to my golden highlights, I’ve been trying new makeup. 
I’m wearing Mac Studio fix, with Mac concealer. I have on Mary Kay’s Golden Copper, L’Oreal lash extender #675, Maybelline Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner, Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow #570….hope you like the pictures. 
 Which hair color do you prefer?       


eShakti Spring/Summer Dress Review…

So I hear we have a storm coming our way in the North East again, I’m seriously moving ASAP! I’m so happy that I finally got my delivery of this gorgeous eShakti dress before the storm. I wanted to show you all how fantastic this customized dress looks on and remind you all to take advantage of the 20% off promo code CCESSRESWE, it’s an exclusive offer for my readers. Please visit the offer is valid from 02/26/13 thru 03/10/13.

I was super excited when eShakti contacted me again for another sponsored dress review. I loved my previous dress and was thrilled to select another one at no cost from their Spring/Summer collection. I didn’t customize the previous dress (see post here)so I wanted to try that option this time around. I shortened the length a bit because I’m short and dresses that fall over the knee make me look even shorter. I fell in love with the coral color, which is one of my fave colors. I went with the same dress size (12) that I selected previously, it fit perfectly, not too tight, and loose in the right areas. Another great experience with eShakti!!


My Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2012 Has Arrived!!

I was super excited to be chosen to receive the Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2012. I signed up with Influenster after reading other bloggers raving reviews about all the goodies they received for FREE! Yes, you heard right, the items received in the VoxBox are free. Naturally there is some work to do on my part but it’s as easy as checking in my VoxBox and writing this review. Sounds simple huh? well it is that simple.

When I singed up I connected my other social media links to help increase my chances of acquiring a free VoxBox. I earned a series of badges as a result of doing that task, which is super easy since I’m on several social media platforms already. I follow Influenster on their FaceBook fan page, which is how I keep in the know about the latest products and reviews being offered by the company.

1. I loved the selection of shoes and the pricing was also really affordable. I can’t wait to use my $25 off at Sole Society

2. The NYC nude lip gloss wasn’t my shade so I’ve passed it on to a friend that thought it was perfect for her skin tone, which is a lighter complexion.

3. Natural Energy EBoost  actually surprised me because it taste good. It’s got a fruity flavor, I added water and stirred in the packet, and it really kept me energized to do some last minute Christmas shopping.

4. I tried the Quaker Real Medleys Cherry Pistachio and Oatmeal and it was delicious. I love oatmeal but this combination of pistachio and sweet cherries was perfect for an early morning on the go breakfast.

5. The Kiss Nail Dress is my fave of all the items. They go on really easily and are the perfect holiday manicure sparkle needed for the holidays.

6. My second fave is the Goody Quickstyle hair brush, it’s like giving yourself a head massage while brushing your hair.

In all this was a treat to receive these products for free! I love that the majority of the VoxBox included things that I use and enjoy using daily. It also introduces me to other companies and product lines that I would have never tried on my own so I love the opportunities that Influenster offers it’s members.

Happy Holidays!

Loving My eShakti Dress!

Hi Guys!! I’m so excited to share information about an amazing online company called eShakti. I was recently contacting by them to do a product review on a lovely dress featured on there website. eShakti is an international online retailer that specializes in ready-to-wear and customized clothing. They offer all styles in all sizes 0-36W, which is the core of their unique business concept. 

I was honored by the invitation and thrilled to select a dress at no cost. I must admit it was difficult to pick just one because of  the amazing variety of beautiful pieces. eShakti’s custom capabilities allow their customers to easily tailor any item to their specific requirements. By doing so this ensures better fit and customer satisfaction. 

I fell in love with the style of  this ” Vintage Houndstooth Print Dress“. I was able to figure out my size by using the size charts, conveniently located on their site. I didn’t have my dress customized but was truly impressed that it fit me perfectly. Customers who wish to have their orders customized can do so using the built in customization tools guide. This option offers a 3-step design and fit page, where they can increase the size of a bust, shorten the length of the garment and modify necklines and sleeve lengths.

Product Review: House Of Fraser Star Clutch

I recently acquired this adorable star shaped clutch from the House Of Fraser’s online website . I was instantly drawn to the unique shape, color, and design of the clutch. Its offered in five different colors. I was looking for a holiday clutch to compliment a black dress that I’ve purchased for an upcoming company holiday party. It’s so adorable in person. I thought it would be sequin but it’s actually completely covered with a thick layer of glitter. 

  I don’t typically purchase from companies overseas because I wasn’t sure if the buying process and shipping time frame would be satisfactory. I was pleasantly surprised by the the ordering process and the speedy delivery of the order. The website was very easy to navigate. I followed the drop down menu categories to the “Christmas Party Shop” section and found a wonderful selection of merchandise. 

  The ordering process was straight forward and secure. I created an account and provided my shipping and billing information just as I would any website and received an email confirmation for the order. The clutch is called Therapy it was priced at  £29.40 ($37.54) and I used to convert the currency to US dollar.

  I was even more impressed with the follow up email providing tracking details daily for the  order. The product arrived within 7 business days, which is with in the stated shipping time frame for international orders on the website. I arrived home and the perfectly packed order  was waiting for me in the mail box. 

   This clutch if perfect for a trendy person, who loves statement accessories. It’s creative design and sparkly glitter will catch every one’s attention when you wear it out. I’ve checked local retailers and was unable to locate a clutch like this one. It’s fitting for a night out on the town and would be a perfect complement to any evening attire.  

  Hurry and grab one for yourself, it’s on SALE NOW!!  I can’t wait until my upcoming holiday party. I will showcase the outfit and the clutch for you all to see so stay tuned.
