EXPLORE YOUR SENSUALITY HAWAIIAN STYLE!

Is skincare important to you? Do you pamper your skin the way you should?  Is your skincare regimen up to par? If you answered maybe or absolutely not to these questions, I may have the perfect solution for you.

I have sensitive skin and I learned the hard way that I cannot put anything that hits the market on my face without researching it vigorously. I tend break out in bumps and blotches that almost look like hives. When I carelessly apply products the allergic reactions to the by products in certain beauty items is instant. I also found out that I cannot use products that contain Alpha Hydroxy or Retinol. These ingredients can almost burn my skin to the point that I need to wash them off as soon as possible. So that changed the whole beauty game for me since I needed to search for skincare that would cater to my sensitivity! I only use a handful of items that are safe for me and it sucks to be limited to those few. But I believe I was at the right place at the right time and I have found my holy grail in body and skincare…Let me share what works for me!

Let me introduce you to Sensual Beauty and boy is this gonna change the way you take care of your face and body.

Let me introduce you to the beautiful owner of Sensual Beauty. Her name is Miss Zephorah Nure and this beautiful lady is also known for her famous legs! Hmmmm? I wonder why -Vava Voom LOL!

Did you lose your train of thought? Yeah I’m sure you did so let’s focus on this skincare  then come back to check out the pic of Miss Nure laterz. Okay so as I was saying, these Hawaiian Spa Bath & Beauty products are the bomb.com and I really cannot lie about it. Lets look at each of these products as a whole and individually shall we?

There are many products to this Hawaiian Spa Bath and Beauty Line but I decided to purchase a set for myself. I believe they may be purchased individually but I suggest purchasing a whole package as they all seem to compliment each other in one way or another.

I’m in love with this Mint Mud Masque!!!

Let’s start with my favorite product from the line – The Mint Mud Masque.  Before I discovered this masque I was using various products that were safe for sensitive skin but they weren’t my holy grail. This heavenly product came along and wow am I so excited with my results that I’ve almost ditched my other products. I use it two to three times a week as recommended and its made such a difference in the appearance of my skin. Before I had some pimples on my jawline and I’m highly allergic to Alpha Hydroxy and Retinol products and ever since I’ve been using this masque faithfully, my pimples have disappeared and my face is so much smoother and softer. All you do is apply some of this product on and wait for it to slightly dry and rinse or wipe off, thats it! That to me is fabulous and it smells like fresh mint just picked out of your garden. Gotta love it!

Next is the Gorgeous Gardenia Sea Minerals Hydra-Silk Renewing Lotion and this is also a gem in this product line. Its smells just like if you’re in a field of soft gardenia’s. So imagine putting this on your face and experiencing it for yourself. It smells yummy and I apply this after using my mint masque and my skin feels so soft and smooth and I’m ready for my day or night whichever one I prefer to use it for. Just apply and enjoy the way it makes you feel!

DSC_0028

But wait …there’s more and here’s another gem to this line. The Sensual Sugar Scrub but this isn’t just any ordinary sugar scrub it has natural shea butter and honey. So when you smooth this on your skin it feels buttery soft and (please don’t do this LOL) its good enough to almost eat. You put it on your body, massage for a few minutes and it melts instantly making your application a pleasantly soft experience. This is a great product for your body but its also good for a before or after bikini wax soother. Note* Even though it says sugar scrub and it smells fabulous, do not apply this to the face area – only use on your body!

DSC_0009

Okay, now I introduce to you the ultimate me time incentive. You have to admit that we all need that amazing quiet me time – I know I do and this is where I highly appreciate this product line. In the above picture I share with you the Gorgeous Gardenia Luxury Bubble Bath. Just turn the water on and pour little of this in there and Voila your ready for your ultimate take away relaxation moment. Get in and soak for as long as you like, when you’re done you will truly smell and feel the difference on your skin. If you love the smell of Gardenia and soft, silky, skin then you need this in your life!

DSC_0011

Okay so there are a number of products in the Sensual Beauty line as you can see and  they can really make you feel sensuous and sexy. But here I give you another item that I simply LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Okay I have discovered that this Heavenly Hibiscus Silky Body Oil is an essential part of this beauty line. Why? Because this oil in my opinion completes the product line – its truly a must have! I love to use this oil after I wash my face at night, I just pour alittle on the palm of my hands and apply to my face and the next morning my face feels rejuvenated. You can also use this for your body especially your legs. Ladies, it’s summer and if you want those silky, soft, amazing looking legs – this is your go to product. You need this in your life! We all need this in our lives LOL!

Finally there’s one last product I want you to check out and thats the Pleasure Potion Tea! This tea is made with natural herbs and from what I’ve heard its an amazing relaxation drink. I can’t wait to try it myself – lord knows I need that! Check out the beautiful packaging and the can the product comes in…so pretty! If you’re not into all the spa products then at least try that pleasure potion tea – I’m sure once you try the tea the rest of the line will be of your interest!

Oh and I totally forgot to mention that this line was created with sensuality in mind so don’t be afraid to explore the sensuous side if these products with your significant other! Oh and Mothers day is coming up soon, doesn’t she deserve a day of spa treatment?

Hint, Hint: That sensuous oil sure does spark curiosity and the lovers imagination – okay, moving on….place your order today I highly recommend this for all the ladies that love  100 percent natural products in their body and skincare!

I truly hope you did because I think that this is the most beautiful holiday on the American calendar and it deserves a special place on my blog! Hey, people even get married on this day so why not, right?

Why is this day so anticipated with us Americans? Well, for starters, V-Day  is associated with cupid – you know that cute little guy shooting arrows with his bow, the color red, red roses in a vase with a cute bow, chocolates in cute heart shaped boxes, sexy greeting cards with spicy quotes and pure anticipated steamy love! Boy that was a lot of saucy thinking on my part LOL. Cheesy for some, delicious for others…your choice.

Let’s see what it is about this holiday that makes it so awesome ….shall we?

WHAT’S UP IN MENSWEAR!

20160202NYFWM-STREET-ONE-slide-RO8L-superJumbo

When I think of shoes my mind tends to gravitate towards women’s shoes. Not sure why that happens but its time for me to give some of the guys that are reading or browsing my blog some inspiration to put their shoes to good fashion use.

The ladies have it golden when it comes to shoes because there are after all, millions of possibilities such as styles, heel height, material, colors, and designers we could ever think of.  It almost seems like the shoes business is specifically made for us females – sorry fella’s, I sympathize with your dilemma. But don’t fret, I’m here to bring you a few shoe designs and a full outfit design to give you ideas on how to dress those shoes you’ve been wanting to buy or use and have never quite figured out how to dress it accordingly.

Fella’s this post is for you, enjoy…Love Alice!!

If you have sneakers in your closet, break those out! This is proof that you can wear a sport jacket with sneakers and jeans!

Here’s proof that you can wear shoes without socks….no shame in that game!

street_style_paris_fashion_week_men_fall_winter_2016__639822150_1200x1799

This guy has the right idea. Wear a suit and tie but do wear that long jacket to accentuate your shoe game…Fab!!

Menstylist-George-Angelis-Milan-Fashion-Week-Spring-Summer-2016-Street-Style-0582

This guy above is wearing light colors with tassel loafers and of course no socks…see what did I tell ya? Socks are sometimes not a requirement in the men’s department.

Of course, wearing a full Clements and Church suit and tie, London Sock Company socks with a Bera Bera tie and Tassel Loafers does wonders for you also.

Love these double monk strap shoes!!

Last but not least, you can wear a vest over a polo with sockless shoes or you can roll up your pants at the bottom making a minimal cuff with a sport jacket to finally get the look you’ve been seeing in many men’s magazines. It’s all up to you – own it and feel as cool and comfortable wearing your look! I hope I’ve inspired you to look in your closet and break out the wardrobe you’ve been longing to show off –

Till next time..

DESIGNERS SPOTLIGHT: ANGEL SANCHEZ

Developing an appreciation for fashion at an early age, Angel Sanchez was surrounded by the reminders of the fashion industry in his mothers atelier. He practiced and studied architecture for many years but soon realized that fashion was his calling. Sanchez started his own fashion house rising to fame quickly in Latin America. Soon afterwards, his fashion house and company established roots in New York City.

Today he is well known for his bridal and evening wear collections that include a touch of drama with every piece. His amazing designs are also considered contemporary, architectural, and amazingly feminine. Let’s take a look at a few, shall we…

SP1639-FRONT

SP1633-FRONT

SP1638-FRONT

SP1637-FRONT

SP1634-FRONT

SP1641-FRONT

SP1640-FRONT

As you can see designer Angel Sanchez is all about color, different designs, and sophistication! You can clearly see hints of architecture in his collections which is truly amazing. You get the best of both worlds with Sanchez which is okay in my book. Can’t wait to see what designs he has for us in the future. This man is truly amazing and I appreciate his abilities to make us all look at his designs and want to try them all on. I know I would – what about you?

SUMMERS LOCKS OF LOVE

8e24aa5ef3259a188f6452b22a5b421b

Summer has once again returned but in my neck of the woods it hasn’t returned with a vengeance. Thank God for that because it can get brutal in a quick minute and my hair surely doesn’t do well in humidity. But oh well, let me just enjoy the summer and keep it positive, Yes…Yes!

As you might have guessed by now today’s subject of my choice is hair. To be more specific hairstyles and color. I love it when people decide to explore and be daring with their locks of love. It just reminds me that we can all be unique and beautiful no matter what race or nationality you may be. Now that its summer that means that hair stylists have their work cut out for them as weddings, birthdays, baptisms, graduations and just the typical family reunion are put together. Its one heck of a good reason to make up a good excuse to get a fresh color and a cut.

With that in mind, lets just take a look at a few that I’ve archived just for this post…which one’s your favorite?

6dc9c0b1728677735abb085d13a06053

What a beautiful hairstyle, would be amazing for that summer concert that you’ve been wanting to attend.

b053c80dcc28fba6e4dbe49458c68212

Love the cut and color of this one…looks so pretty and goddess like!

long-ombre-hairstyle-2016-450x600

Long with Ombre highlights…so pretty!

I’ve always loved the short, wavy, cuts like this one with the blonde streaks in between. This one looks so badass on this model.

Pink-Hairstyle-for-Short-Hair

For those of you that like color thats on the opposite side of the spectrum …check this one out! What do you think? Its definitely different.

Long layers with that beautiful color…yes, please! I would definitely rock this!

Love this color and the cut of course but that color is so summer-ish!

hairstyles-for-black-women-trends-2014-2015-wallpaper

For my lovely black women, this ones for you and me of course, Oh so beautiful – I would rock this!

Awesome-Wavy-Pixie-Cut

Yes ladies, you can also rock a short pixie cut like no ones business, stunning!

Black-Girl-Short-Haircut

Short curls can be your thing if your not into the long hair trend…still rockin it!

67e55733cc8e480b0d310c1261e0ad59-400x600

You can also rock a natural high bun which to me looks so simple but elegant!

Amazing-Women-Black-Hair-Color-Cover-Picture-Wallpaper

She’s rocking the long, shiny, beautiful hair that makes anyone want to go to a salon and get theirs done the same way!

So what’s your take on summer hair? Should you cut it short, long, color it, or just rock it natural? I believe in doing as you see fit. If you wanna have it long and curly by all means go for it! If you wanna rock a short, shaved, bob thats all amazing too. The most important thing to remember is that whatever haircut, style, or color you pick it’s what makes you unique and beautiful. You rock whatever your heart desires and do it like its no ones business. Feel confident about how you look and smile at all times. Make yourself happy and look gorgeous while you’re feeling yourself.

I really hope this has inspired you to at least look into getting into a salon this summer and I would love to know which one of these styles gave you an epiphany for a cut, color, or style that you like.

Stay Beautiful My Lovely Ladies!

WHERE ARE ALL THE BLACK MODELS?

91mUdgoogfL._SX450_

Model: Poppy Okotcha

Today I wanna talk about models, you know – the models that you see in runway fashion shows and magazine covers. You may ask yourself, whats so different about this subject? I’ve heard it all before, what about it? In reality, you have head about it but the models that you see are the typical norm thats all over the fashion scene.

Poppy-Okotcha-Lurve-Magazine-Poppy-Okotcha-09

Let me explain – models nowadays are normally white, slim, tall, fair-skinned and they have the hair that looks like they just came out of a Guiseppe Franco salon in Beverly Hills. Yeah, its all the job of a makeup and hair crew but lets face it, its the typical norm and I really feel like our black models are really being left behind. Let’s give recognition to our up and coming future black skinned models shall we?

They’re almost always tall with beautifully tanned skin, unique hair and they also have the amazing facial features that are to die for. We have to agree that our dark-skinned models are fierce, sexy, and they have a certain something about them that commands respect and admiration wherever they may be. Lets meet one of these beauties and you can come to your own conclusion, shall we…

We need more dark skinned models on the runway and on covers of magazines…hey, why not? They’re beautiful!

Meet the model: Poppy Okotcha – she’s one of model managements newest faces and she’s 19 years old from Marlborough, England. Her favorite designer is Alexander McQueen but she’s also fond of Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs. Her future dream is to own her own eco-freindly fashion label. She also wants to change how little Afro hair products there are currently on the market. She would also love to someday portray Grace Jones because to her Grace is a powerful woman. I agree, Poppy – for sure she really is powerful and sexy! Here’s a few more pictures of this dark skinned beauty below…

THE BUZZ: NYC FASHION WEEK 2015

This past weekend was an amazing one for this fashionista! I attended two events, one in which my dearest friend John Ashford of Authentic by John Ashford Shoes was featuring his designs from the John Ashford Art of the Shoe Show sponsored by Who Wore That Magazine and Huberts Lemonade. His often colorful, sometimes seriously sexy, and at times unbelievably amazing shoes are really a sight to see…really – you’ve got to have a look at them. Wait, what am I saying? Ladies, you have to own a few of his shoes. They’re handmade plus they’re amazing and he only makes them custom so no two pairs are alike…I like that! I already own a couple from his exclusive collection and the fashionista in me is loving his designs. Don’t wait – get a pair, or two, now!

For the second event of my day, I met the lovely Martu E. Freeman – Parker owner and founder of M.E.F Style Report and she really kicked it up a notch for me. She invited me to Style Fashion Week at Gotham Hall and I couldn’t have been more happier to attend. I was right there happily holding my camera in hand, ready to get my much awaited fill of a fashionista’s dream. The moment was exciting and the event was fabulous.

The designers that had their collections featured were: Quynh Paris, Esosa, Santa Clara Moda, Chrisber’y, and Anthony Rubio. The show was amazing and the models looked beautiful. The designs were stunning and featured beautiful colorful, flowery headpieces, flowy dresses in stunning, vibrant, colors and there were even beautiful bridal dresses that were fit for a few goddesses. Oh and I met and took a picture with a celebrity from Project Runway – how cool is that!

Between the anticipation of seeing what shoes Mr. John Ashford had designed for the event and the fashion show I attended, I have to admit it was overwhelming but it felt great to be available to experience these moments. The events were successful and I got to meet some amazing people along the way. I’m always grateful to meet such talented individuals at these events that can inspire me in any way. Can’t wait till the next one – check out the pics of the events below! Thank you, I appreciate you all!

COLOR BECOMES ME: MY OBSESSION WITH MAKEUP!

neon-beauty-tips

Its all started when I was 12, color was everything to me. I can remember in school when my teacher would ask the class what colors we would like in folders or writing notebooks and I was always the odd ball. The kids in the class would pick beautiful pinks, red, blues, or purple and I was the only girl in class to pick yellow, orange, green or some whacky tacky color like that. I didn’t care, I was expressing my love for unconventional colors that most girls my age would have never picked to be their fave at the time. Was I an oddball or was it the start of something seriously obsessive?

Lets go back to when I remember it all started for me. Being 12 and living in NYC, I was constantly around color, makeup, and trendy stylish people. My first encounter with makeup was when I was allowed by my mother to wear colored lipgloss. Yeah, I considered that makeup and it made me feel all grown up and ladylike. I was so happy to have been allowed to wear it because it was the start of something big for me. As the years went by I experimented with more vibrant colors (I won’t post pics because I want to save myself the embarrassment) that I thought would look amazing on me. At the age of 17, I remember buying this beautiful blue Maybelline eyeshadow (haven’t seen that color since) – hey I thought It was going to bring out my light brown eyes. Needless to say, It was an awful choice and I was made fun of by other girls in high school because they thought it looked horrible on me and did nothing but make me look like a clown. Could it have been jealousy or was it really that bad? I’m really not sure but I loved that eyeshadow and I believed at the time that it looked beautiful on me. So I decided to experiment with more colors in makeup over the years – this is the beginning of my obsession with all things color and cosmetics.

s-l1000

My childhood lip glosses looked like these. I thought I was grown with my new found glossy lips!

91mUdgoogfL._SX450_

My first eyeshadow was almost similar to this color and I was so in love with it. Haven’t see that exact same color in years.

Today I can truly say I’m a true makeup junkie, I collect makeup like I collect shoes, scarves, and handbags. Today’s makeup is nothing like the makeup from years ago. Nowadays you can find every and any color you are searching for versus ages ago where you only had the basic colors. There are so many brands/color varieties that its saturated the market and you almost need a makeup allowance to keep up with it all. Uhh Ohh, I think I gave myself an idea..Sephora and Ulta are already loving me.

IMG_4028

Eyeshadows in various colors…need a color I probably have it. This is only a portion of my collection!

Color is important but the patterns or the way they are presented to me are important also. Heres why – A while back, I went with a friend on a shopping trip and walked into the Vera Bradley store and boy were my eyes in for a shock. I mean I love color but jeez I felt like I had walked into the 70’s. I’m sorry, I know that there are those that love the Vera Bradley brand but her colorful merchandise really doesn’t appeal to me. I can never find a color pattern that I like in her items, although I did see a beautiful towel that was amazing and I need to go back and purchase it before I never see it again. Thats a first of me ever liking one of her items, the colors never seem to be right for me and they do not seem to go together…and those swirls and flowers Uggghhh! I will stop at that thought for now before I put my foot in my mouth LOL.

I love color but this is insane!

 I woite this blog post because of an epiphany while leaving the Ulta store. I walked in with the idea of taking advantage of a sale and walked out with a hundred dollars worth of makeup. What happened? Well I was asked by one of the ladies that worked there if I needed help and was given one of their complimentary makeovers and thats what did me in. Don’t get me wrong I love complimentary makeovers and I loved the way it looked on me. It gave me a dewy look and I was sold. I walked out with every item she applied on my face plus a few more non makeup items.  Did I need it, No! Did I want it, Yes! Heck, it made me look beautiful and thats what had me sold. Will I ever get tired of makeup, color patterns, and the beauty of it all? I probably will not and will continue to enjoy it for as long as I can. Its in me or should I say it becomes me and we become one.

As you can see here’s my problem, how can I walk into this store and not wanna buy everything….Ughh!

IMG_3287

Oh Ulta, I’m obsessed with you!

IMG_3289

My Ulta Purchase..plus that free glittery cute bag, love it!

Makeup for me is at times obsessive, expensive, and color crazy but I love it. Hey, how can you not love looking and feeling beautiful. Ladies do I really need help and is there any other female that can relate to my epiphany?

RUNWAY THE REAL WAY AND ANOTHER FABULOUS JOHN ASHFORD EXPERIENCE!

IMG_1225

I remember ages ago mentioning that I would love to attend fashion runway shows or to be able to have a dream job thats fashion related and I also remember stating that one day I would like to walk into the Yotel in Nyc and stay there for a week or a weekend. Staying there didn’t happened but I at least got to walk in and see what this hotel looked like inside, it was beautiful. Let me tell  you how this opportunity came about…

Last week my amazing friend Shoe Desingner John Ashford asked me if I was able to attend a Fall fashion show called Runway the Real Way hosted by Catherine Schuller. It was going to be held at The Yotel in NYC so of course I jumped on the opportunity to attend. It was Halloween weekend so I figured why not plus I would never pass up an invite to attend one of his amazing shows if its in my power to be there – trust me I will attend, LOL. I couldn’t wait to see what kinds of shoes John Ashford would feature at the show but I know that it would be a phenomenal show and the shoes would be on fire!

The event was called Runway the Real Way hosted by Catherine Schuller and I was excited because John Ashford’s models were wearing some his new never before seen handmade boots. The boots were beautiful, hot, and the models were looking sexy. I had the opportunity to style some of them and assist Mr. Ashford in any way needed. The Yotel NYC also provided us all with an amazing breakfast which I myself highly appreciated – Thank you Yotel. This event was quite an experience, I am beyond happy and I thank you, John Ashford, for trusting in my abilities to get the job done efficiently. Check out some of the pics from the show and our awesome sponsors below..

Thank you to Hubert’s Lemonade for the delicious refreshments provided – they were delicious! Oh and I love your lil Winky Lemon, so cute LOL!

As you can see these Authentic by John Ashford shoes are amazing and the models really made the boots on the runway look hot together with the amazing jewelry by Material Girlz Boutique, heck this event was pure sexiness. Theres no doubt that I will always consider myself an Authentic by John Ashford fan, his designs and shows are always different as you never know what he has in store for us ladies. The element of surprise and the anticipation of what kinds of shoes or boots he will break out at a show just makes attending his shows fun and exciting.

I would like to send a special thank you to the Yotel for providing the amazing breakfast and an awesome space to hold this event, Sponsors – Stylaga, Runway the Realway and host: Catherine Schuller – thank you for your sponsorship and of course John Ashford of Authentic by John Ashford!
