Statement Necklaces: Wardrobe Must Have
Style [+] Life [+] Fashion by [@kwest1908]
Style + Life + Fashion wanted to share the new home and lifestyle items from kate spade new york’s summer collection. Our favorites from this season are shown below. They are the perfect fit for bridesmaid gifts, playful desk accessories, or colorful home décor.
Winter was long but Spring is finally in the air! The seasons may be in transition, but that doesn’t mean your hair should be just as unpredictable. This Spring and Summer, let your hair down and flash your stems! Allow me to introduce the Baobab Oil Moisturizing Collection from Sienna Naturals.
My name is Hannah and I am the founder of Sienna Naturals. I was raised in a multi-racial family that valued natural foods and natural living. However, when it came to my beauty regimen, I struggled to find natural products that met the needs of my hair and seasonally dry skin. My hair became a source of anxiety rather than a source of confidence. Despite the abundance of options in our beauty stores today, finding high quality natural products continues to be a challenge. The demand is there, so where are the products?
I was asked to visit NBC’s WBAL to talk about the lifestyle brand CureDiva.com This project was close to my heart because of the number of women (we know and love) who have had to undergo cancer. Often times when they’re in this situation, they are facing several physical battles such as hot flashes, weakening nails, or hair loss. CureDiva.com is platform for women to not only wear fashionable accessories before, during, and after their treatment but it’s also a community for women to discuss issues that are centered around the illness.
The products I featured where the Acquarella Nail System, Travel Purse with Ice Pack, and a Fancy Hands Fan. Each product serves a purpose, for example the Travel Purse Ice Pack helps women with hot flashes (as a mini cooler.)
In addition to sharing the products with local viewers, I decided to wear the color pink to support the brand.
On Wednesday February 19, 2014 I was asked to host a lifestyle segment with Fox 45 Baltimore News Station. This was a wonderful experience because I was able to talk about a topic that’s close to my heart (mommy products) and visit the news station for the first time.
I also had the opportunity to chit chat with a few of the ladies who are “expecting” and gave a few product recommendations. Overall, I enjoyed sharing information about the three “mommy” products and currently preparing for my next upcoming segment.
Decided to wear pearl earrings, fuchsia blouse and black leggings for the segment. The photo below is a picture of my favorite floral pumps purchased from Target. Please visit my instagram account (@kwest1908) to view this look…
My monthly subscription from Beauty Box 5 arrived and I was pleased to receive all of the goodies in this month’s box.
The company sent over Every Beauty Makeup Remover Pads, Rockstar Nail Polish, Elizabeth Mott Mascara, H20 Plus Spa Hand & Nail Cream, and John Frieda Shampoo/Conditioner.
I was super excited to use the Elizabeth Mott Mascara because I actually needed to purchase a new tube, so my subscription box came right on time. And the product lived up to my expectation: no clumps, goes on smooth, and wears well through out the day.
The Rockstar Nail Polish was actually one of the first items that caught my attention due to my love of the color pink…the nail sprinkles and I am excited to have my “caviar” nails done!
And of course, I welcome receiving any new hand cream because there’s so much dry air this season. To sum it up, I am enjoying my subscription and will post an updated photo of the nail polish once I have my weekly manicure.
Can’t get enough of Jennifer Lopez’s accessories from American Idol? Well look no further….Go-to accessory site, Designs by Millo, carries almost identical items so you can “get her look for less”.
