Men’s Bomber Jackets

Back in the 90′s bomber jacket were seen mainly in black and green with orange interiors, but thanks to the modern shapes, textures and colors that they now come in they’ve made a huge comeback. I personally think they look best in black (see Kanye and Kim below) but there are tons of options to fit everyone’s style. Wear it for fall with a white tee and jeans and for winter layer with sweaters and cords.

2014 VMA’s Recap

August 25, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Last night I had the pleasure of tweeting along with Beats By Dre during the 2014 VMA’s and let me tell you Beats made the second screen as fun as watching the broadcast! I was eager to watch some of my favorite performers like Beyonce, Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj but it was Bang Bang that was at every single turn all through the night! Beats and Target made sure to put strong women like Arianna Grande, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on a major platform and I loved every single minute of it. Even Nicki’s wardrobe mishap was handled in a tasteful yet sexy way. When my kids heard Bang Bang they literally ran over and blasted it (I had my own little VMA party going on while I tweeted and watched!).

2014 VMA's recap

Of course I could not watch the VMAs without noticing what the stars were wearing: Izzy had a futuristic vibe to her dress, Taylor Swift shocked in a Mary Katrantzou romper, Jennifer Lopez showed some serious leg as only she can in a Charbel Zoe dress, Kim Kardashian wore Balmain and Beyonce looked like the queen she is in Nicolas Jebran dress.

Beats hands down won the commentary game during the show this year using real time gif instead of the typical chat. I was honored to be part of the convo cause my family and I are huge fans of Beats By Dre and all of my boys use the Beats By Dre headphones and I can’t work without my Pink Pill XL that I got as a birthday gift by my side (all of which are now available at Target). It was a fun filled night that ended with the amazing Beyonce winning the Vanguard of the Year. It was so cute to see Jay Z in the audience with little Blue Ivy dancing in his lap. Missed the premier of the Bang Bang video? Check out the video below!

Stylish Football Season Apparel For Women

August 22, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Growing up I never watched football the only sports we used to watch was the occasional boxing match and then when my brother got older we started to watch basketball but it wasn’t in a fanatical way or anything. Having five boys, you’d think that one of would be a sports fan but there isn’t. William, who’s now 15 used to LOVE football! He even played tackle and baseball for a couple of years. I put him in both sports at once because he needed a way to burn energy. He was the type of kid that would randomly do a book report along with a diorama just for the fun of it because he was bored. Once he hit middle school he changed. He became very mellow and now loves to play the guitar. It was once he grew out of his sports phase that we kind of stopped watching sports. I know they keep tabs on what’s going in the sports world and even have a team they root for but it’s not the same. I, on the other hand, find football season an amazing excuse to eat wings and wear some cute sports apparel.  Below are some of my favorite picks all under $50.

Kevel Mommy Review – A Pregnancy & Post-Pregnancy Must Have!

August 13, 2014 by  
Filed under Accessories

Pregnancy clothes nowadays can be hit or miss. You’ll find some stylish but pricey, affordable but cheap quality but the bottom line is being comfy and getting the most out of every dollar you spend is always the most important because you’re only going to be wearing them for nine months. Its products like Kevel Mommy that does exactly that, it maximizes the clothes you have without sacrificing a bit of comfort. Kevel Mommy is a small, mighty device that safely secures your zipper AND expands your waistline for the beginning stages, post- pregnancy and anyone who has a pair of pants that are snug or even just have a zipper that won’t cooperate, it’s handy to have in hand pregnant or not. It really is genius and I wish it was sent to me before while I was pregnant but because I’m not back to my pre-baby weight I did get to use it on some jeans that are close to fitting me.

Kevel Mommy

This fashion break-through was designed by Rachel Kearl, the design was born out of her own frustration over no longer fitting into her favorite designer jeans. After experimenting with a hair tie to give her a little extra room in those slightly snug faves, the idea morphed and progressed into a more effective prototype and the ultimate fashion savior—Kevel’s Perfect Fit—made its debut. Today, because one size doesn’t fit all, Kevel has developed three versions of its original design to help battle those sneaky “shrinking” waistbands, including Kevel Mommy.

Kevel MommyI’ve seen tons of pregnant women use the old hair band trick on their pants, but are left struggling with the zipper. This eliminates all the fuss and does all the work during pregnancy and after pregnancy on those days where you feel like you can’t find a thing to wear. It’s a household must for under $20 and it comes with a few to ensure you’ll always have the right fit.

completely bare Review

August 7, 2014 by  
Filed under Accessories

I’ve gotten my share of Klout perks but none of them quite impressed me like the one I got this week from completely bare. Besides having adorable packaging (I’m a sucker for cute packaging) it came with an ENTIRE set of hair removal products: waxing strips, numbing spray, bump blaster and a moisturizing hair inhibitor. I’m not one who constantly needs to be waxing any parts of my body, but I do I like to always keep my skin smooth and I frequently use facial strips on my extremely sensitive skin.

Klout Perks Review

The first thing I did was test out the waxing strip on my legs and it worked great on spots with thicker hair. I did notice that rubbing the strips several times until you actually feel the wax warming helped out quite a bit. Overall, not much pain but like I said I’m never in serious need of a shave/wax.

After waxing I gave the body moisturizer and hair inhibitor a try and the first thing I noticed was how yummy it smelled! The moisturizer is exactly how I prefer moisturizers to be – light weight and without a greasy feeling. I used it every night after showering for one week and what did I notice? Extremely moisturized skin and my normal once a week leg shave was no longer needed – awesome!

After I cleared up a nasty break out on my face I decided to try out the facial strips. This made me a little nervous because my skin is so sensitive. I’ve had some pretty bad reactions to facial strips and have been using Sally Hansen Hair Removal Creme religiously for about 10 years. I applied the wax and strips on the sides of my face where my sideburns grow and rubbed until I felt the wax warm. I then closed my eyes, pulled the strip off and waited. Result? Clear smooth skin – love it!

I didn’t give the bikini bump blaster or the cooling spray a try but from the looks of it I’m sure they’re just as great. My favorite was the moisturizing hair inhibitor – it’s a nice treat after a long day on the beach. I definitely recommend giving any of these four products a try (especially during summer).  Click here for more info on the entire line and services.
