fashion fair

I have had the pleasure of trying out some goodies from the Fashion Fair line!  I have a few items to share with you guys.  First up is the limited edition Moisturizing Body Set in French Riviera Blue.  It has such a light, refreshing scent.  The kit is made up of an body oil that you can apply directly to skin or add a few drops to your bath and a body creme that is so soft, but definitely moisturizes well! 
I also want to share with you The Capsule Collection.  These sets pays homage to Fashion Fair's four decades of beauty.  The four collections highlight various hues of pink specifically created for women who celebrate life with w touch of luxury.  

I have the Sensuous collection.
The 1990's Sensuous Capsule Collection reflects a new evolved era of beauty, when women embraced bolder colors.  This collection of rich, modern and bright pink colors celebrate a woman's sensuality.
Sensuous Pink Lipstick
Sensuous Pink Lip Teaser
Plum Rich Beauty Blush
Sensuous Pink Nail Lacquer
The Body Set is $39 and the Capsule Collection is $48

So I had every intention on going through with my March fashion challenge, but my computer had other plans.  Long story short, it's no longer working!  Which messed up ALL of my plans with blog posts, video making and being more efficient.  I tried using my husbands iPad, but it's not the same.  I just purchased a new one yesterday, so I plan on getting back on my posts.  
Instead of keeping it throughout the month of March, I plan on being consistent throughout the months.

Thanks for being patient with me!  I can't wait to get back posting!

journal entry #6 is a mommy and me collabo.  #10 & #88.  
I kinda did these photos at the last minute.  Put together the outfits at the last minute.
Didn't make sure all of the settings on my camera were right.
The photos came out grainy :( which leads to editing with filters.
I didn't want to redo them because it turned colder so here they are!
The little one and I sporting some comfy and casual outfits.

page 5: dressy joggers

I am in total LOVE with the dressy joggers trend.
Who would have thought to put heels with jogging pants (and get away with it)!
Whoever did, BRAVO!  Added a few pops of yellow and white to my gray joggers, one of my favorite color combos!

page 4: a little sunshine

journal entry #4 brings a little sunshine.
It's been so dreary for so long that I'd forgotten what it felt like.
I'm hoping its up from here.  Decided to get out the snow and onto some solid ground for these pics.

These pants actually came into my possession by accident.
I ordered a completely different pair twice, and both times, I was sent these.
I figured that since I kept getting these, I would just keep them.
And I'm glad I did!

top:: target

page 3: suede in the snow

journal entry #3 is very self explanatory.
I was so scared that I was going to mess up my boots in this "beautiful" weather that we have.
But I wanted to wear these SOOO bad.
I actually put this outfit together with sandals and no tights last summer and never got around to shooting it.
Fitting to do it now, right?
jacket:: forever xxi
skirt:: 5.7.9
boot (wright) + bag (martin):: justfab
glasses:: amazon
hair:: princess hair shop
What's the craziest thing you've ever done in extreme weather conditions?
I can think of way worse than this, but I would have been mortified if I ruined them!

page suit & tie

journal entry #2 has me singing Justin's "Suit & Tie"!
I've had this bowtie for a few weeks now and could not for the life of me, figure out how to style it.  
Until Saturday night.
It just popped into my head out of nowhere!
I think what was shielding me was that I always would come up with pairing with a white button down and would get lost from there.  Anyone that knows me knows that I love red and black together!
And so, it was written!
bowtie:: elle trois
top:: forever xxi
skirt:: charlotte russe
bag:: mart of china
shoes:: (melina, sold out) shoedazzle
bracelets:: justfab
hair:: princess hair shop
