E’TAE – THE NATURAL WAY!

Hair struggles, we all have them and its frustrating as hell! You buy this product to combat that product and you buy that product to combat this problem and the cycle goes on and on and on. Well today I want to let you know that you will never need to seek out the holy grail anymore – I may have your solution and its hella good – at least for me it is!

I’m puerto rican and I have the worst curly ass, hair girl issues ever… if its not frizz, its endless split ends, if its not that its trying to find the right products to help straighten my curly unruly hair!

(Hi, its me Alice! Check out my hair, super poofy)

You see, why its frustrating for me? This hair needs management and the right products asap! So about three years ago, I turned to a salon and tried the Keratin treatment, a cut, and a color for $150 and boy did I think that that was the “it” product. When I left that salon with my new hair all bouncy, shiny and looking fabulous I thought to myself – this is it my – must have hair care product. The treatment lasted about 1 year and a half before I needed another treatment and thats where my expensive hair issues came about.  I proceeded to contact 2 salons in my area and they both wanted between $150 and $200 dollars and that was just for the Keratin, no color or any extras! The extras would be much more and I really didn’t want to dish out more than $150. So I figured – why not do the Keratin treatment myself and save money? So I bought a treatment off of Amazon and now I understand why its so expensive to do at a salon. The process is extensive, lengthy, and tedious but it really is worth it – if and only if your either willing to dish out the money or do it for yourself. I chose the latter and thats where I’ve been with my hair care till a few weeks ago.

Keratin Treatment I’ve been using…

So about a week ago I saw a video of a girl getting her hair done with some natural products being applied to her hair. The hair stylist was explaining how the product worked and I was impressed by the whole process. When the hairstylist finished the girls hair, it was soft, shiny and bouncy and she had tight curled hair to begin with so I was shocked that any product could have those fabulous results. This impressed me and I decided to take the challenge and try it for myself. I knew that there was a money back guarantee so I was even more intrigued by it.

IMG_1505

Love the results

IMG_1510

So Soft and manageable

IMG_1511

I love it

The companies name is E’tae Natural Products and apparently they’ve been in business for a while now but I have never heard of them before (not sure where I’ve been LOL). I placed my order and a few weeks later my products arrived and I tried them following the instructions to the letter. At first, I didn’t see a significant difference but two weeks later I redid the treatment and my hair was looking amazing. I couldn’t believe the shine, body, and softness i was experiencing! I was in love and I vowed to make this my new hair care product. I can’t believe I’ve been without it this long and I truly recommend it to all of my lovely readers. Theres a money back guarantee so if its not for you just return it but first try it twice and I bet that by the second time you will be impressed. If you love natural products this is for you. You can style your hair any way you want after using this… Be it curly, blowdried, flat ironed – its all up to you with this product!

IMG_1526

This is the most requested product of the whole line…The Carmel Treatment

IMG_1525

Carmelux Shampoo …so good for us curly haired girls!

IMG_1523

Silk Conditioner… don”t forget to use your wide toothed comb with this gem!

IMG_1524

The final step before you style … apply a small pea size of this and you’re hair will thank you! *Note – this product has a really funky smell to it, I believe it’s the clary sage thats giving it that strong smell. I’ve learned to mix it in with a coconut scented hair cream that I’ve been using for shine so it masks the strong smell that gives me a tiny headache sometimes. If you find the smell too much, mask it with your favorite hair product and voila, problem solved!

IMG_1528

One last look at that texture and shine LOL….Here’s where you can get yours ….E’tae Natural products

 

“COMPLETELY BARE,” DOWN THERE?

brazilian_waxing_white_bikini_beach_clean

Yes, there’s a reason for this season and thats for you to go “COMPLETELY BARE” – you know where! No, I’m not talking about landing strips or Brazilians…as much as you’d prolly like to hear about that if you you were a guy. I’m referring to getting rid of that unsightly winter coat and the recurring stubble that comes with leg and underarm hair. Yes, that yearly (for some) weekly ritual (for others) that is a must do in every woman’s itinerary. I would go the permeant hair removal route but thats for another post altogether LOL! My frustration with hair removal come with several gripes and so far I have 3 and here they are…

1. The need to go out and buy new razors every few weeks!

2. After you find your razor, you need to find an amazing shaving cream, thats where this post kicks in! No fear ladies, I’ve got a possible solution.

3. The attempt to shave without looking like you just got into a fight with a cat walking on your way to work…the band-aid company truly loves us LOL!

Let me elaborate on what its like to be a female in this era…we get our periods, we have babies which means we get stretch marks (which are beautiful in my opinion), we get menopause and all its symptoms because mother nature wasn’t finished with us yet, then when that’s settled and in its usual rhythm we still have to take off our body hair! Fellas, you sure do have it easy if you really think about it! But in all seriousness, us females just need a damn break every once in a while or for those that have money permanent solutions. No money no problem…lets refer to number one on my list, shall we?

Oh, the weekly or bi-weekly struggle – buying razors. I would love to congratulate the inventor of the razor – King Camp Gillette…you sir are a genius although you have made it a relentless struggle for most woman nowadays! There are about hundreds of brands of razors to choose from and if you’re like me you’ve got your personal favorite brand or you decide to skimp and buy the cheapest disposable brand there is (bad idea). If you’re in neither of these categories then you my lady are the one in the razor aisle looking and overlooking the descriptions and styles of all the different brands on the market! Buying razors is a trial and error scenario – you buy, try, and if it works for you hooray! You’ve been successful – at least in that area of your life. next on the list…Shaving creams!

Skintimate-Mandarin-Burst-and-Schick-Xtreme3-Hawaiian-Tropic-Razor-on-the-Shelf-at-Walmart-2

In this criteria, its also your preference but here is where I give you a heads up! I was a fervent user of the Skintimate line of shaving creams which were good but I wanted a different kind of shave. One that left my skin with the ultimate baby smooth feel and appearance – this cream did that but I felt like I was needing to try other shaving creams just to shake up my routine a bit. So I took advantage of Ulta’s 21 days of beauty and purchased the Completely Bare Moisturizing No-Bump Shave Gel and I think I have found an amazing product that is one of the best creams for us ladies that are shave happy!

IMG_1013

Hypo-allergenic and a People’s beauty Award favorite…awesome!

IMG_1014

Ladies, I’ve been using this product and I kid you not – I got an amazing shave out of this product. What makes this product different is that its a gel and not a foam which to me makes a heck of a difference when shaving and the smell is truly a fresh scent but in a happy sense. Trust me, I’m not one to buy items that have harsh, rub me the wrong way scents. I love clean, soft, flowery, happy scents and this is totally it. The shave that you get from this product is different but in an awesome way and the blade just glides across your skin giving you an effortless, soft, smooth shave.

IMG_1016

No foam here just a clear gel that is heaven on your skin!

IMG_1011

Love how smooth my legs look..

IMG_1010no  nicks or cuts – a plus in my book!

Now on to my third gripe…

how-to-get-rid-of-razor-bumps-on-bikini-area

Oh yes, the cat fight LOL! Well, don’t tell me you haven’t experience scrapes, cuts, and nicks from shaving. I have and yes the band-aid company was and sometimes is still my best friend LOL. You may argue that it could be your dull razor – Yes, it could be your razor but it could also be your shaving product. You may not believe it but it does make a heck of a difference what kind of shaving cream you use. At least for me it does and I’m currently in love with this gel and I highly do recommend it if you’re looking for a different product to replace what you are using at the moment.

Oh and for the final thought…

bikini_0

Did you actually think I was gonna even remotely talk about the hair down there LOL…I didn’t but at least now you have options. Thanks for stopping by…..

IT’S GETTING HOT IN HERE!

summer-wallpapers-2010-1024x640

Its definitely cold outside with this heavy hitter of a blizzard this side of the country is experiencing today but lets just take a moment to put this all away and think about what’s coming after this is all gone! You know it….Summer is right around the corner and this blog post will surely put you there front and center. What do most of us do in the summertime – we travel or relax in one way or another. Traveling can be either physical or mental – either way we tend to think of lots of the sun in your face, floating in the pool, sand in your toes, Caribbean breeze while on the beach sipping on a yummy island drink or a cold one! Ughhh, I’m so there right now!

Okay, let me just stop and show you what I mean with the following pics …thank me for it later!

Get your swimsuits ready or at least start looking for the one you would love to wear!

Oops, can’t forget about the kids…let them go out, run around and explore their surroundings! If you take my advice they will sleep better at night…more quiet time for you!

So there it is…what did you think? Is it hot enough for you? These pictures sure brought me to a warm happy existence and it took my mind off of the mess that we have going on outside…Summer is surely my favorite time of the year. So much to do and see, so many friends to meet with, so many relaxation options to choose from. Whatever you choose to plan for this summer enjoy it, take lots of pics but best of all smile. Enjoy the time that summer has to offer and look forward to it the next year!

Happy Summer!!

THE RED EDITION!

I know Valentines Day is long gone and celebrated but it still merits a post that I know you probably will enjoy. Did you celebrate the day with your loved one? 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?

You decide for yourself and thank me later…better yet go back and review the images above then come back and visit the blog again for more inspiration and sexiness…

Gotta run… Love Alice!

THE JOHN ASHFORD TRUNK SHOW

15443150_10154281733264075_8922832747485162394_o

A few days ago, I struck up a conversation with a friend and the subject of my fashion experiences came up. While I reminisced about my invites to various exclusive shows I mentioned that I had been invited to a Trunk Show that would be taking place in a few days. She didn’t know what a trunk show was so I proceeded to inform her of what it was about and how fun they are. She was very excited and wanted to know when the next one would be happening. I informed her that she would personally be invited to the next show and we would go together!

Now I am assuming that most of my followers who read my blog would know the fashion terminology but for those that don’t, I will tell you what a trunk show is and no it isn’t a show that sells or shows off trunks for you to buy LOL. Heres the definition of trunk show: a sales event for showing merchandise to staff and select customers. That, my readers was exactly what it was and more…

 Last week, Shoe designer John Ashford called me with some amazing news – he was having his private trunk show event in Clinton Hills Brooklyn, Ny and I had first dibs as blogger/photographer for that day! You can imagine how excited I was and I didn’t hesitate to accept his invitation. My excitement for the rest of the week till then as you can imagine was through the roof. Being a fashion blogger does have its perks and I’m so glad I could experience it and share this with my readers! Take peek at the pictures from the Authentic by John Ashford’s private trunk show sponsored by Barefoot Wines! Oh and I purchased a few pairs of amazing shoes of course!

COLOR: WINTER WHITE

2895dd3b9bf0a23f8834289d1a7b641c

In the mainstream world, the majority of fashion conscious individuals who are aware of trends will notice that winter is a good time to break out that white color of everything. If you would ask me today what my least favorite color in fashion would be, I will honestly tell you its white. All type and shades of white.. winter white, white white, soft white, eggshell white, bright white, Ultra  white — heck every white color there is out there. I love white in other areas like interior design, makeup, underwear, hair color etc – but white fashion wise, there is no way in hell you will catch me wearing white in any form unless its flattering to my figure. Lets face it, one reason I have a love/hate relationship with white is that white does not look amazing on every silhouette and mine is one of them. If you can pull if off, I say more power to ya! Congratulations..I envy you! White also looks amazing in other areas that are not fashion related which we will take a closer look at below too just for fun.

[All White Kitchen] – that chandelier is gorgeous!

While checking emails on my computer today I received an email sent to me from a blog subscriber that stated “white is the trending {it} color for this season.” This person is correct, if you notice it is really trending.

white-dress-red-carpet-02

[Above: White made its strong presence among the actresses]

The red carpet was the best place to see this shade in all its glory and brightness. The actresses were looking stunning in the various designs in white. Another place where this clean cut color was noticed was in the Republican National Convention where Melania Trump wore her white Roksana Dress and it was stated that it wasn’t like her to wear such color. On the flip side, we also saw Hilary Clinton wear a white pantsuit at the Democratic National Convention. Hmm, see a trend here?

[Above: Good example of how white brings out the obvious in other colors]

So what give with white being a popular color this particular season?

Well, for starters – white is considered powerful, neutral, clean, pure and it matches or coordinates well with most other colors. Its a good reason to look at your wardrobe and start considering the possibilities.

prove41

My second reason that the color white for me is such a huge fashion faux pas is because I also know that my wardrobe wouldn’t be able to stay crispy white for very long. Klutz Central here….beware or walk on eggshells!

Good luck and wear “WHITE” to your hearts content! Someday, I will feel comfortable with this evasive “beautifully pure” color that is white but till then in fashion – I will avoid it like the plague – unless its a scarf, handbag or a hat then I will truly embrace it wholeheartedly. Hoping for the best of luck in every “WHITE” color love ..may the fashion angels be with you today and always!

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!

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

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…

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?

THE WEDDING DRESS OF YOUR DREAMS!

Sottero-and-Midgley-Mariam-5SS123-alt1

When I was a teenager, I would always fantasize about my dream wedding and how it would be. From the guests, the dress, my wedding party and even the church..for me it was just perfect, grand and magical. I would imagine myself looking like a pretty princess in my massive ballgown with the longest train ever and my wedding party would be looking fabulous as they compliment me and the hubs. Ugghhhh..lets all bring it back to reality shall we, as that kind of a wedding is the dream of millionaires and that my friend can be a massive undertaking. But we can all dream, can’t we? Yes, we most definitely – so speaking of weddings here’s a peak at some gorgeous wedding gowns that are the dreams of most brides of today. Fair warning though..this is not your moms wedding dress of the 60’s or 70, these dresses are made for those brides that can splurge on the dress and not even bat an eye. Take a look and see for yourself below and hope you have the wedding of a lifetime and find the dress of your dreams!

Maggie-Sottero-Bronwyn-Marie-12723-front

Maggie Sottero: (Bronwyn) This dress is amazing. Made with fluid lace and a flowy train, its just a simple dress made with elegance and the ribbon gives it just the touch of sophistication!

Jean Ralph Thurin

This dress designed by Jean Ralph Thurin is unbelievably sexy. The fluid fabric just hugs the curves and the cape just give this dress that extra WOW factor that it needs. Check out the top of the dress, the bodice gives this dress a certain look of fabulousness…Amazing!

hayley-paige-bridal-tulle-halter-high-neck-alabaster-crystal-horse-hair-flounced-chapel-train-6413_x1

Not too keen on the form fitting dresses, heres one that you may have to take a second look at. Designer Hailey Paige was definitely showing off when she designed this masterpiece! The touch of alabaster tulle gives this dress that desired hint of classiness it deserves. Brides that purchase this dress will feel like a queen for the day. Stunning!

EveOfMilady (Amalia Carrara Collection)

If you’re not familiar with Eve Of Milady, she is synonymous for making the most striking wedding gowns. I love to follow her designs (Instagram) because they are made for fantasy weddings that make a bride look stunning. She pays lots of attention to detail and it sets her designs apart from all others. This design above is from the Amalia Carrara Collection and it features a flare silhouette, sweep train, hand beading and a strapless fit. Seriously I would just buy this one to display it on a mannequin in my house – I know it sounds silly but Eve of Milady screams sexiness and attention to the most minute details with every design. What do you think?

Eve Of Milady (Amalia Carrara Collection)

For those brides that like to make an impressive entrance here’s another Eve of Milady (Amalia Carrara Collection) gown made of silk satin, silver and gold embroidery, and features a strapless dress. Look at all the detail on this one…God, how amazing it is!

Maggie-Sottero-Serencia-5MT118-back

This one is made my the amazing Maggie Sottero and look at all that loveliness on that model. Wow, I love it! This one is called Serencia and its from her platinum collection. Featuring glamorous tulle and opal organza, it screams romance at you from every angle. The crystal bodice will hug your curves and accentuate that layered skirt. The illusion back will give you just the touch of sexy sophistication needed. This dress is super romantic and I love every inch of it!

Maggie-Sottero-Pierce-5MN690-front

Maggie-Sottero-Pierce-5MN690-alt1

This Maggie Sottero (Pierce) wedding dress is for those ladies that love a more subtle sexiness while capturing an audiences attention while walking down the aisle. Its a classic lace sheath bodice with demure elusion lace. That grosgrain belt with Swarovski crystal just pulls the whole look together.

Paloma Blanca

Designer Paloma Blanca brings you this simple design for those brides that aren’t all about the bling and extravagant designs. I chose to feature the top part of this dress because its so simple and I love it when a dress has that small wow factor. In this case its that beaded insert that drew me in. Awesome, love it!

RomonaKeveza2

If you love lace then this is the dress for you. Designed by Romona Keveza – this dress looks like its made for the European bride. I guess its the endless lace and the veil that give me that impression. I’m not a fan of this much lace but for those that are I hope that this one somewhat appeals to you.

Maggie-Sottero-Melanie-4MS061-back

This Maggie Sottero (Melanie) dress is so feminine and chic – more lace and a peekaboo back for those ladies that love a fit and flare design.

Sottero-and-Midgley-Mariam-5SS123-alt1

Check out the front of this beauty!

Sottero-and-Midgley-Mariam-5SS123-back

Here we have a Maggie Sottero and Midgley dress…I think I don’t need to say anything on this one only that its beautiful and I so love it!

RomonaKeveza

I’m all about color so this dress by Romona Keveza would be the one I would wear to my own wedding LOL…its so different and beautiful!

RomonaKeveza

Call me weird but I’m in love with this design also! Imagine making a striking entrance with this amazing museum worthy piece on …I’m sold on this one!

So as you can see wedding dress shopping is all about the details. What kind of details are you looking for in a dress? Lace, satin, ballgown, form fitting, flared bottom, simple but elegant?

MODEL CRUSH: CHARLEE FRASER

Me being the fashionista that is all about fashion, style, and anything remotely related to such, I am obsessed with models and their careers. You could say sincerely that I have “Model Crush” LOL but seriously what person that loves fashion doesn’t. You gotta either love them, envy them, or follow their careers.

We have all seen endless model images all over magazine pages and social media. I seriously believe models always blaze trails wherever they stand. From Alek Wek, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, and Linda Evangelista just to name a few, these beautiful ladies have made their mark in the modeling industry. They have laid the foundation for future models and have left them a few pages in the book on how to be successful in this demanding industry. Yes its grueling but if it weren’t for some of these ladies, we wouldn’t have the beauties that are popping up in various social media outlets, magazines and elsewhere. Agreed? Yes?

Today I would love to introduce you to one phenomenal model and she’s a true bombshell. Her name is Charlee Fraser and she’s worked with several high end Australian photographers.  She’s from New South Wales and she’s is making true waves in the modeling industry by appearing in several campaigns, editorial shoots, and runway shows. She is also from the indigenous Awabakal people of New South Wales. How cool is that? She’s very photogenic and its obvious that the camera loves her in every way possible. She is signed to Ford New York and Premier in London. We should be seeing more of this Australian beauty all over social media, runways, and magazines. Let’s check out her pics and really envy this beauty, shall we?

Her eyes look into your soul, can you feel her passion?

These pictures definitely take me back to a time when at 15 years old and I wanted to be a model. At 5 feet tall and 100 pounds I was told I was too short therefore I quickly deferred my love of modeling for photography, reading about fashion and blogging about it. Since then, I have not felt discouraged but it has empowered me to find a different outlet to express my love of fashion. I now read as many fashion magazines, blogs, and keep up with my social media accounts as much as I can. Some may say its excessive but I beg to differ. The more you keep up with whats going on in the fashion industry the more you learn and apply that toward your ultimate goal of success. Besides fashion is always evolving its never consistent and still therefore my career needs to be evolving as well.

Hope you liked this featured model and look out for more of her work online and in magazines. Check out her instagram here: @Charleefraser – Tumblr: Charleefraser.tumbler.com
