WHAT I WORE TO THE DINNER

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #77: Something New
My family was in town so we all got together and went to Sushi & Grill Restaurant for dinner.  Since we we’re trying some new food, I was inspired to try a new look. I’ve been dying to wear this new skirt I made, so I based the look around it. I purchased this lavender color fabric in the Spring during a trip to NYC. I fell in love with the fabric’s subtle giraffe print and soft hand.  Last week blogger and designer Mone convinced me to try pastel colored lipstick. I thought this look would be the perfect time to bust out  my NYX lavender lippie I bought at the Make Up Show Orlando earlier this year.Keeping the train rolling with these fashion firsts,  I accessorized my look with a black knit turban, pointed toe flats and Betsey Johnson Camera Kitsch Bag. Kitsch Camera bag was a gift  birthday gift from my mom, it’s been one of my most steady summer accessories. The cross body strap allows hands free carrying which I love when I’m on the go. I can have my hands free to snack, take selfies, or text. I fell in love with the turban it added a cultured yet chic element to the look, this piece will definitely be a repeat offender.  Tank: Ross | Skirt: Fatshion Forward (by me) | Handbag: Betsey Johnson | Shoes: Charlotte Russe | Lipstick: NYX Pin Up Pout Lippie (Wisteria – Neon Lavender)

I got all these goodies at the Kat Von D boothe at the Orlando Make Up Show. Her boothe had lipstick chandeliers, live beauty demonstrations, a rose wall and a lipstick throne which I definitely took a photo in. The line was so long but worth the wait for the discounts and amazing products.

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?

2centrum_multigummies

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.

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?

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

Negative Space . . . My Nod To The 90’s

Outfit of the Day #62: Chico’s x Fatshion Forward
2fatshionforward_ootd62Hey Girl Hey. I have been busy as ever helping my sister plan her wedding that took place this past weekend. But here I am, back again with another look and this time I am doing a nod to the 90’s with a modern twist. What screams 90’s more than a head to toe velvet look. I desgined and made this velvet set myself. Set includes a crop top and midi skirt.
3fatshionforward_ootd625fatshionforward_ootd62Sleeveless crop top featured a scoop neckline, soft hand and elastic in the hem. Paired with coordinating midi skirt and pom pom slip on sneakers. I reviewed these super comfy Betsey Johnson sneakers yesterday check out post here if you missed it. accessorized look with a family heirloom: a matching earrings and necklace set. I have a lot of stylish women in my family and I like to honor them as much as I can through my work.    
1bjsneakers_fatshionforward4fatshionforward_ootd62I I layered velvet skirt set with a jacket by Chico’s. Jacket featured stripes of satin sewn close together giving it a negative space illusion when stripes spread apart. Jacket also features zipper front closure, pockets and bomber like collar. Velvet set and jacket paired well together because of the jackets print and the solid black of the set. I think the entire look has a sporty and chic feel with a 90’s edge due to the simplicity of the set and the sneakers.
