Fashion Faux Pas: Ridiculous Jumpsuits

This jumpsuit makes me want to puke.  There's really no other way to put it. I'm not a fan on jumpsuits in general, just because it's difficult to find one that looks good.  I mean, everyone has a different shape and distance between their top half and their crotch right? So, how is it possible to create a jumpsuit that works for everyone?

I think that designers are starting to realize this.  And that's why they're just adding, what I like to call, "extra crotch" to all jumpsuits.  The one pictured is a great (horrible) example of this.  The model is clearly in great shape, but the jumpsuit makes her look like she has a beer belly! And possibly a penis!

Here's a tip for everyone out there: don't wear jumpsuits. They are ugly and unflattering. Also, if the outfit looks like crap on the model, chances are it won't look good on you.

Oh, and P.S.: if for some ungodly reason you want to buy one of these, you can get them here for about $200.

That is all.

My New Fave Mascara

I probably own 7584395734 tubes of mascara.  No joke.  And that's even with abiding with the whole "throw it away after six months" rule. It's just one of those products that I constantly wear, even if I'm in a rush and need to forgo everything else.

My latest find is Hard Candy's 1,000 Lashes Fiber Mascara. I've been pretty much in love with all the latest Hard Candy products, but this particular mascara is simply fantastic! There are actual synthetic fibers in the mascara that cling to your existing lashes making them look longer and fuller in just a couple coats!

I also love the fact that it comes in tons of different colors.  Black is great for an everyday staple, but the bright purple or indigo blue is great for an added punch of color.

Each tube is a mere $6.  You can grab one online, or at any Walmart.

Repair Your Winter Damaged Hair!

It's officially springtime!! I don't know about you ladies, but my hair is totally damaged from all the winter dryness it has endured.

Couture Colour has come out with this fabulous Pequi Oil Treatment that instantly makes hair look and feel amazing! It's alcohol-free, which is a huge bonus, as it doesn't dry out hair any further.  The oil also contains oodles of moisture-restoring antioxidants--Vitamins A and E, proteins, and lipids--which help make dry, color-treated hair noticeably softer, shinier, and smoother.

The Pequi fruit has been known for centuries as the beauty secret of the Amazon rain forest. The oil can be used before shampooing, as a pre-blow-drying treatment for smooth, sleek hair, or post-blow-drying to calm frizziness and flyaways. 

I tried this out after washing my hair.  I applied a small amount prior to blow drying and then again after flat ironing it, and found that my hair looked luscious and super healthy.  I loved the shine that my hair seemed to have and I will definitely be using this product again.

You can purchase your own bottle of this magical oil for $32--not bad, considering that a little goes a long way!

Bronzing Rocks!

As I've written roughly 5473857349 times, I'm so pale that I'm basically see-through. I'm not even kidding.  And with the weather getting warmer, my pasty skin just isn't going to cut it. 

I've tried various self-tanners, and usually end up looking orange and streaky, which is only slightly better than pasty white.  Recently though,  I've tried out the range of St. Tropez Bronzing line.  I'm pretty impressed with all they have to offer.

My fave product they've got is their amazing Bronzing Rocks.  They have just enough shimmer to them to make skin look like it's glowing (without looking disco-ball-esque), and adds as much of a tan as you'd like.  You can build up color easily, or leave it at one light layer.  The rocks work well on the face, or on the body.  I'm totally obsessed with them!

You can buy your own Bronzing Rocks for $40--a pretty great deal since the rocks should last you a season or two!

Sorry, ladies! I know I've been totally MIA for the past couple weeks...but I have a good reason! I moved!  My fiance and I finally found our own fabulous apartment.  It's great, except that we haven't had any sort of internet.  So, I'm super sorry for the lack of fashion insight. 

This week, you can look forward to tons of great posts and a few giveaways! So keep checking the site for updates. 

Thanks, ladies!
