OOTD #85: Plus Bklyn

Obsessed with this striped knit cardigan, it adds an effortless chic to any look. I think it’s the faux leather elbow patches that really sold me plus my obvious love for stripes. Especially stripes the are going in different directions it add a fun and detailed dynamic to the garment. It was the last one of it’s kind on the rack. size 3x it was meant to be.  I wasn’t leaving without it, sorry babes it’s SOLD OUT. I’m wearing a basic knit shift dress in a blush pink color. Black, pink and white always looks so good together, one of my favorite color combinations. Winter is all about minimalist fashions layered under luxurious outerwear.

Travel 101: 6 Health & Beauty Tips

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and it’s advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone. #CentrumFunFlavors  #CollectiveBias4centrum_multigummiesI’m constantly traveling so I started this travel series to bring you all some tips and tricks I have learned along the way. I’m sharing tips for a weekend trip and hacks to help you maximize your luggage space. Most importantly I’m showing you how to stay healthy on the go with easy solutions like Centrum ® MultiGummies ®. Find out what’s in my “Weekender Bag”.

What you will need:
Contact Lenses Case(s)
Travel Size Bottles
Zip Lock Bags
Cotton Balls
Cotton Pads
Tape
Old Aspirin Bottle
Clothes Pins
Plastic Wrap
Centrum MultiGummies
Carry On Size Luggage

Your favorite liquid cosmetic isn’t available in travel size?

1traveltip_fatshionforward

Fill a contact lens case so you don’t have to bring the entire container. Also great to keep in your purse for after flight touch ups. Need more space then that? Pour product into travel size bottles and seal (I have a tip for that too). 

Tired of your palettes cracking ? Need to repair one that is already broke?

4traveltip_fatshionforward

Place a cotton ball or cotton pad (depending on palette shape) inside your powdered makeup compact and close it as normal. This will help keep the product compressed in the compact and prevent it from shattering in your beauty bag. If you have already broken a palette pour some rubbing alcohol on it, reshape it with a make up brush and leave it open on a flat surface. It will be good as new once it’s had fully dried.

Liquid spilling out inside your bag?

3traveltip_fatshionforward

Place some plastic wrap under the cap of your travel size bottle to help seal the fluid or lotion in. Then screw the cap back on over the plastics and Voila! No more spills. (Use pieces of recycled plastic bag if you don’t have plastic wrap.) You can also place tape around the cap and over the mouth of the bottle to add additional security.

How to stay healthy on the go?

Head to Walmart and grab a bottle of Centrum ® MultiGummies ®. I toss a bottle in my weekender bag and I’m off to the airport. No water or food intake required so I can literally take them anywhere on the go. You can find them in the health department in the aisle with all the vitamins during your next trip to Walmart. I usually buy my health and beauty products their along with groceries.1centrum_multigummiesCentrum ® MultiGummies ® contain three natural flavors: Berry, Cherry, and Orange.

B-vitamins to help support daily energy needs.*
B Vitamins aid in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.*

Where do I put small or fragile things so they don’t break or get lost?
5centrum_multigummies

Store perfume, body wash and other delicate items like deodorant inside both pairs of a sock and then place inside your shoes. It will keep them from breaking or being squished in your luggage. It will also help your shoes keep it’s natural shape.

Toothbrush Stand?
2traveltip_fatshionforward

Make a toothbrush holder out of a clothespin to avoid putting your toothbrush on a hotel bathroom counter.

What makes you blush?

Beauty Review: NARS Orgasm Blush

Hey my loves 🙂 Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. Today I am reviewing NARS Blush “Orgasm”. I was flipping through a fashion magazine last month and came across this NARS Orgasm Blush sample. This sample came right on time as I have been dying to try some of their Orgasms collection. My first impression of this blush is that it would be too light for my taste since I usually pick my blush in a darker pink more rosey hue. I also thought it had too much glitter to be blush and it looked more like eyeshadow.
1FatshionForward_NARSReview2FatshionForward_NARSReviewBut NEVER judge a book by it’s cover this blush is everything. The glitter in the blush breaks down when you apply it and adds an undeniable glow and highlight to your skin. I absolutely loved that element, with this blush you can skip the bronzer or highlighting if you want to. If you are like me and like a natural look when it comes to your makeup this blush is definitely for you. What’s more natural than an orgasm after glow?
0607845040132The pink blush shade blends out nicely adding a soft burst of color on your cheeks without overdoing it like some other blushes do. The product is easy to use and apply, no harsh patting and rubbing on your compact to get product. You can buy this blush at your local Sephora or you can shop online at NARSCosmetics.com for $52. Can’t afford that I know I can’t, keep scrolling for a list of six dupes all under $10.

Rose Quartz & Rose Gold

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: #31: Rose Quartz & Rose Gold

4FatshionForward_OOTD31

Happy Fatshion Friday !!!! Check out this post on ThePlusSideParty.Com. I snagged this jumpsuit at Fashion to Figure’s Sample Sale last month in New York. I love this Rose Quartz and black jumpsuit, The fabric is forgiving and comfortable, it features a zipper closure that continues around the neckline adding chic element. It is so hard to find jumpsuits that fit just right, they always seem to be too long or too short. Fashion to Figure nailed it. This jumpsuit is on trend for spring with it’s PaneTone Color and breathable fabric.

5FatshionForward_OOTD31 3FatshionForward_OOTD31

I accessorized this look with a statement necklace and mirror sunglass by Mirina Collections. I took advantage of the jumpsuits’ low neckline and dressed up my look with the “Erin” necklace by Mirina Collections. Rose Gold Aviators featured mirror lenses and and black and gold frame. Chilling  out by the pool or at the beach stunning in your sunnies. Last but not least I paired this jumpsuit with this super comfortable braided strap sandals from Charlotte Russe. These sandals add a classic twist to an old favorite with the single strap in the front and the criss cross faux leather braid around the ankle.
