Sophisticated Socks from DeadSoxy and Street Style | #StaySoxy

Socks are considered the most under-stated fashion accessory. They’re normally tucked away in a hidden department next to the hosiery!

In the last few years, socks have made a huge comeback! They can be found in an array of designs and styles. For example, invisible socks can be worn with dress shoes and crew socks are for sporting activities.

DeadSoxy is an innovative shoe company that specializes in superior high quality socks.  Here’s why their socks are so amazing:

  • The Feel: Uber-soft, high-end yarn enables a cool and dry environment for your feet and means no shrinking
  • The Look: Superior dyes keep socks from fading and the distinct patterns give your outfit an extra dose of style
  • The Design: Engineered in a U.S. knitting mill to create a unique technical design that no other sock on the market has
  • The Magic: These technical specifications keep our socks, whether crew or no-show, from slipping or falling; so you get a comfortable wear & put-together look ALL day
  • The Deal: They are THE ONLY company ever to offer a money back guarantee if they slip off your foot.

Product Review:

DeadSoxy shipped a pair of invisible and crew socks. Upon opening the package I was skeptical but the quality of the socks speaks for themselves. Each pair had a unique design and fit nicely on my feet.

Street Style Trend: Socks and Heels

I like to wear high heels for various events but often leave with sore feet. By wearing a pair of crew (or invisible) socks this eliminated that issue. The Steele Woman sock is stated to match your fun personality and I actually like that mindset!

DeadSoxy has both men, women, and youth socks along with sophisticated accessories such as colored shoestrings.

Also, quick side note: if you’re searching for a bulk order of groomsmen socks, the company provides personalized packaging.

Soft Surroundings Hug-Me Cardi and Wine Bottle Stoles Review: Holiday Must-Haves

Being cozy is a fashion staple during this time of the year.  Yes, it’s glamorous to wear backless sweaters and knee boots but being warm is more important.

Soft Surroundings is the perfect shopping destination for luxury and comfort.  The name alone speaks volumes and has something for everyone on your holiday list!

At home, I am known for being chilly and wearing a full robe.  In the midst of putting up my Christmas tree and running errands, I opted for my Hug-Me Cardi.  Let’s start by saying my life revolves around this fur jacket.

I watch movies in this jacket.  I go to the grocery store in this jacket.  I bake holiday treats in this jacket.  I have a glass of merlot in this jacket.

Aside from the Hug-Me Cardi being ultra soft, it has very easy, readable care instructions. Simply machine wash on cold and tumble dry.  It’s not like most fur jackets that loose shape and form.

To find and purchase the Hug-Me Cardi or Wine Bottle Stoles, visit your local Soft Surroundings or shop online.

Insta Flawless Fix and Matte Setting Powder: Rimmel London

Have you ever taken a picture only to realize your face has an uncontrollable shine? This is often the case with several of my photos.  Rimmel London solved this problem by sending one of their newest products.

The Insta Flawless Fix and Matte Setting Powder set my makeup within a few minutes.  I applied foundation, concealer, mascara, blush, and eyelashes.

Afterwards, it was time to set my entire look!

The translucent powder was true to its purpose; lightweight, smooth and neutral in tone.

Some of the other brands left my face dry and provide a yellow-base tone.  The Insta Flawless Fix and Matte Setting Powder can be purchased online or at your local ULTA Beauty store.

Color Correcting: Solution To Skin Imperfections

Contouring, Strobing, and Color Correcting are three techniques that are well-known by pro make-up artist.  Looking in the mirror (at-home) we often discover a few nasty skin imperfections. Some would say that wearing make-up is the issue but truthfully it’s more about the natural environment and heredity.

Color correcting is the solution to this problem.  It’s considered the one technique that will neutralize your complexion and skin tone.  This magical concealer is different from the average cover-up and can be found in the rainbow colors of purple, green, pink, and yellow.  The cream or stick will mask dark circles (or tattoos) underneath your foundation.

One of the most important tips to remember is that Color Correcting sticks are based on your skin complexion.  For example, darker skin tones should use an orange concealer while lighter complexions are encouraged for yellow primers.

COVERGIRL OUTLAST ALL-DAY Soft Touch Concealer: Review

COVERGIRL has a new collection titled the OUTLAST All-Day product line.  This advanced formula was perfect because I have been searching for makeup that will give a flawless appearance.

Aside from having an unblemished face, I needed something to remove the shine and last for hours without fading away.

COVERGIRL sent the Soft Touch Concealer for a product review.  I was skeptical because concealer is a serious topic for beauty bloggers.  To my surprise, this product is amazing!  After staying up all night I needed makeup to camouflage my under-eye circles.

This concealer has a matte finish and doesn’t require a lot of application.

OUTLAST ALL-DAY Concealer #850 Medium/Deep

MATTE Finishing Powder #850 Medium to Deep | Natural Glow Foundation #875 Soft Sable

I forgot that I applied the outlast concealer (after looking in the mirror) and appeared “refreshed” all-day.  The Soft Touch Concealer inspired me to try the entire collection.  I was impressed with the OUTLAST ALL-DAY 3-in-1 Foundation and OUTLAST ALL-DAY MATTE Finishing Powder.

iRestore Hair Growth System – Thickening Formula

Serums are the latest beauty product to increase optimal hair growth.  As women, we undergo several health factors such as hormone changes, poor diet, and stress that can have an impact our hair.  In addition, hair is part of the largest organ (on the body) which is our skin or epidermis.  Skin care goes hand in hand with Hair care for several reasons:

  1. Every season has an impact on hair follicles – from the environment.
  2. Consuming the right amount of vitamins and minerals extends hair growth.

I had the opportunity to use the iRestore Hair Growth System. Due to body changes and child-birth my hair root has changed.  This is also the reason I became natural (chemical-free) while seeking to have a healthy scalp.

The iRestore Hair Growth System was easy to use (a few drops daily) and I have reduced seasonal shedding. With the use of this product, I’m looking forward to hair growth over the next few months!
