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!

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!

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.

[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.

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!

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!
