{What I Wore} Rompin' in Retro Florals + Video Review

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

Hey Delights!

I have always in my heart of hearts considered myself a 60's hippie chick, so this retro floral romper appealed to me instantly. I purchased this back in April the day the Victoria Beckham for Target collection dropped, so of course I paid full price, and I am a little peeved that it along with other pieces of the collection are majorly marked down and it is currently on clearance for $9.

Yep. Nine. Dollars.

{Challenges} Giving #Vlogtober A Go!: Day 1

Hey Fabs!

Happy October! 

One of the things that always challenges me to the point where I just never do it, is video blogging. Or more accurately, editing vlogs. I will record a video and that's no big deal but then when it comes time to edit it, I just lose all my mojo for it.

Maybe it's because I am not using the best software but it just takes me such a long time {insert sad violin playing}. Bwaaaa..

I have managed to put out a few that I actually got through and liked as evidenced on my youtube page but there are so many other things that I would love to share via video and just don't.

Soooo...I thought why not join in on this Vlogtober challenge, which is simply a challenge to post a video blog every day of October. I figure at a minimum I will get in the habit of just getting behind the video camera more.

And since I love the spontaneity of Periscope (follow me!!), I will most likely be using it all month to live broadcast and then post the videos to my youtube channel.

So to begin...day 1 of Vlogtober oh and going forward the videos will be in landscape..womp!

Upon request, I have added links to some of the items in this video!


{Video} Review: Warby Parker Home Try-On Glasses Program

So, I received my selections from the Warby Parker Home Try-On Glasses Program and I thought unboxing them they would be the perfect way to drop my first vlog of the year.

I was really hoping to find a pair (or two) that are stylish so that I can upgrade my prescription glasses game, especially my sunnies.


{Video} Review: My Second RocksBox {Jewelry} Box

In my effort to be a better blogger, I am trying to get things posted to the blog sooner. I go to a lot of events and have a lot of products, etc that I want to share with you ladies but time is a tricky thing in my world sometimes, well most of the time and a lot of times I just never get around to doing it.

But I am working on it.

SOoooo...I just got my latest RocksBox in the mail yesterday and waited to open it so that I could share doing so with you on this video!

Here is a better look at the pieces.

{life} FFFWeek Curves at Sea...

i love this dress and i am so glad that i found it at the very last moment. 
i mean...THE very last moment...the night before i left.


{beauty} winter skin love...

i take incredibly long baths all year round but especially in the winter.

there is just something about immersing myself in water for hours that comforts and relaxes me.

so of course considering that our skin was not made to be waterlogged for hours at a time, i have to really pay extra attention to keeping moisturized and exfoliated.

one of my 2012 blog goals is to do more video blogging and i am geeked to say that i have bit that ball and i am off and running with it.

check out my first vlog of the year!

i share three of my favorite winter skin care products, 
one of which i am giving away below


Full Figure Fashion Week ™ Recap w/ The Curvy Fashionista

Check out my very impromptu interview with The Curvy Fashionista, Marie Denee.

She graciously allowed me to drag her to record it during the Full Figure Fashion Week ™ Brunch that we attended at the lovely Taj Lounge in New York City {which btw had the most fantastic band playing during brunch!! just jammin! check out a little video of them here}

She talked about a little about the recently Full Figure Fashion Week™ in LA this October, some of her favorite moments and we even chatted a little with The Face of Full Figure Fashion Week™, Rosie Mercado.

And although I had a scheduling conflict because I had to attend Blogging While Brown {which I will be blogging about soon} that didn't allow me to attend most of the action, I did get a chance to attend a book signing at re/dress for Chastity Garner's new release "The Curvy Girls Guide to Style" {which btw I will be giving away on facebook soon!}

Check my Curvatude on the Scene Facebook Album for more.

I am so looking forward to attending all of the events during the next Full Figure Fashion Week™!
