Mink Pink

Outfit Of The Night :

















Who likes my hair this color ? Should I go back to my natural color ? Yay or Nay ? Comment below !! 





Shirt - Mink Pink   www.minkpink.com

I love the brand Mink Pink. They have such unique clothing and the quality is absolutely amazing ! 

Jeans - Old Navy Rockstar Jeans. These jeans have SUCH an amazing fit ! I tried them on in Old Navy and they were too short. In a regular. So, I went online and ordered them in a Long. I am not that tall and usually jeans are too long.( I am 5'5 1/4 to be exact ! ) So, I was shocked the jeans did not fit me right. But, nevertheless, PERFECT fit in Long. And, they are just the most perfect jeans ! I would expect this quality from high end jeans. The "give" is amazing and they have the perfect amount of stretch.  Find them HERE

Bag - Hermes Birkin 35 (Consignment store)




Boots - Rachel Roy Similar HERE



Charriol bracelet trio and my evil eye and hamsa bracelet as accessories and Cross by Swarovski .






Hope everyone has a great day/night !

Outfit Post From Saturday

I have to admit I am starting to love my much lighter hair. I don't think it will stay with me too long. So, don't mind the amount of photos I take while this color lasts. LOL.




















YSL Tee Shirt - www.Cultivated-Beauty.Com

Jeans : American Eagle HERE


Bag : Hermes Birkin Bag 35cm Consignment store find 


Sunglasses :  Chloe



Shoes :  Sole Society 


Side Note - I am obsessed with Sole Society !!! They have great shoes at reasonable prices and it is not a monthly shoe service so you are not roped into anything. I have to say for the price you pay you are getting great quality shoes and they are trendy and I have ordered 5 pairs from Sole Society and they are ALL comfortable. These are wedges but even the pumps were super comfy ! I used a coupon for 20% off that came in my influesnster holiday voxbox. They also do 20% off for first time customers if you enter your email so be sure to do so !

Hope you like the outfit !


Have a great day :)

Hot Iron Holster





I was lucky enough to have been sent the Hot Iron Holster. It is a stylish durable, silicone heat pocket, that will hold you hair styling tools. The large pocket can accommodate every hair tool. Hair irons (my main use), hair curlers, and even hair dryers. I even placed my Instyler in it and it all holds up so well. 







The Hot Iron Holster exceeded my expectations ! It does not move from its place at all. I was hesitant to believe that this product was going to adhere to surfaces. But, I really did put it to the test. I put it on countertops , granite , my vanity table , and my dresser and it stayed put. And, the best part is, it does not look cheap. There are no suction cups or anything involved. 









It was invented by Erin Balogh, when her pedestal sink didn't offer her any room ! Genius idea !


It is also great, because I no longer have to fumble around looking for my hair iron. I know that it is hanging neatly on my vanity. BRILLIANT. Whereas, before I had it in my closet next to my vanity. This also cleared up room in my closet ! It hangs right off of your counter to solve the problem of where to put your hair tools. 


Another positive is that it is a heat resistant pocket so you don't have to worry about it burning or anything of that nature. Keeping your hair tools in a safe place is very important ! 


Available colors



Overall, this product to me is absolutely a genius idea. It recently won the Next Big Zing Award for the Beauty Category 2012 . It truly brings a whole new meaning to clutter-free beauty !

Glamour Sponge LOVE

I am in love with the Glamour Sponge. I used it this morning to apply my usual makeup and ended up using less foundation than normal. Which, is alone a great thing ! 


It is also shaped in a way that allows flawless application to the difficult to reach eye area. I think this makeup sponge is great for makeup artists. It would eliminate the need for you to touch the clients face, since it gets in every crevice of your face, enabling major blending to occur, without the need to put your ring finger under your or your clients eye. 

It smoothed out my foundation and minimized the look of foundation, to give me a "No makeup" makeup look !


Plus, it is absolutely adorable !





You can purchase it for a reasonable price as well, which is a big bonus ! 






To get yours go here : www.MakeupMae.com




Disclaimer- I was sent this product to review. This does not alter my feelings on the product. Items sent to me that do not live up to their claim do not get bashed. But, they do not get featured on my blog. There has been a lot of questions about that on my blog. Just wanted to clarify that with everyone.

Grand Central Beauty Review

I was lucky enough to have been sent two wonderful products from, Grand Central Beauty. The line is currently available on their website HERE and is also exclusively sold in Henri Bendel NY. 


I was sent the S.M.A.R.T. Skin Perfecting Mask. 

S.M.A.R.T. stands for :

Smooths. Moisturizes. Anti-aging. Redness-Reducing. Tones


And, I was also sent a sample size of the S.M.A.R.T. skin perfecting polisher.


I LOVE the skin perfecting polisher. It left my skin with a great glow and it gently unclogs pores and dead skin cells, releasing trapped dirt with continued use. The product says that rinsing is optional. I for one had to rinse it bc I felt like dead skin cells were sitting on the surface of my skin. So, I chose to rinse. Because, I have acne prone skin. But, if you have dry or combination skin you could get away with not rinsing it.


You apply one pump (Dime Size) onto clean dry face and massage face lightly and thoroughly until clear sponge beads emerge, rolling away trapped dirt and dead skin cells.


It left such a nice sheen on my face ! And, I felt my dead skin cells peeling off ! 


I was also sent the S.M.A.R.T Skin perfecting mask.

It is a 15 Minute Peel Off Treatment with Multi-Efficient results.

If I could compare this mask to any on the market it would be the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask. Only THIS mask is more spa grade. I am just telling you that it will peel in the same way the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask does. But, The S.M.A.R.T  has so many beneficial ingredients, that the two are only comparable with how the mask peels off.


The S.M.A.R.T Skin perfecting mask can be introduced to your current skin care routine.

 * Paraben Free

* Sulfate Free

* Petro-chemicals Free

*Phthalates-free

* NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS !!! 

It is loaded with Vitamins and Minerals from fruits, botanicals and Marine Seaweeds. 


It is said that you can see results in just one use and I did ! 

Here is what the mixture looks like. This is the consistency it should be.

Mask all mixed up




  I mixed the sample together. I mixed the intensive booster vial with active mask Powder Capsules amd a small amount of water.



I have been super busy so, it was nice to have time to relax with a face mask on.


Let sit for 15 minutes and then peel of the mask.


Be careful not to get this near your eyes and lips. I made that mistake and it was not fun ! LOL

Here is me relaxing with the face mask on :

Great photo, I know ! 


Overall, I am extremely happy with the mask & the polisher


Let me know if you are interested in trying this ! It is Fabulous and leaves your skin looking brighter


Love it !
