What’s up beautiful people?

It’s Friday and I’m excited about the weekend.  I wanted to share my casual look from yesterday.  I really enjoy making casual styles look fly.  I recently got a  Barbie Perfect tee from Forever 21 and wanted to rock it.   Added some black skinny jeans and my chunky heeled sandal from Just Fab ($14.95).  I found this really cute magazine clutch a few weeks ago. I also wore my super cut square studs.

Hello lovelies!  Jessica and I went to Atlanta this past weekend to attend the annual World Natural Hair Show.  It was a really exciting experience to see so many women rocking their natural hair in afros, twist outs, wash-n-gos, braids, and other styles. There were other vloggers and bloggers there.

I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite YouTube vloggers Toni Daley (tonidaley.com.)  I was super excited to meet her and support your business.

Swim Sexy by Swimsuits For All Review

Hey lovelies,

I recently purchased a swimsuit two piece from swimsuitsforall.com from their Swim Sexy Line.  They specialize in swimwear for women with curves size 8 to 34. I found this red and white polka-dotted high waist two piece swimsuit. I purchased a swimsuit from this company a few years ago and I really liked it.  I got it for a really great price right under $20 and free shipping.  There are a lot of promotions and deals that go on daily. Here’s the swimsuit that I got back then.

Here’s a brief review of my newest purchase and shopping experience:

 The swimsuit was packaged well.  The color was great.  The top did not really look like the photo as far as the coverage.  The top felt tight in some places and did not provide the proper support and coverage for my boobs.  If you look at the halter top straps in the ad pic versus my pic,  the ad pic is wider than mine.  The high-waist bikini bottoms fit fine.  However, the waist was so high that it make the two-piece look like a one piece.  

The return/exchange process was not too difficult.  It does require specific steps. I would suggest talking to the customer service reps and review the exchange/return policy.  I called customer service for help which made the process easier.  I couldn’t exchange just the top, so I had to return the set and place another order that involved me paying again.  I recently got an email that my credit should be refunded to my account soon.  

I just got my new swimsuit and will be reviewing it soon.

Here’s a code for 10% off CURVES10.  It can be used with other offers.  It expires by 3-31-15.

FYI, always keep the packaging and invoices for online purchases.  I needed both for this order.

Haul: Bath and Body Works

wpid-wp-1420743664984.jpeg

Hi beautiful people!

I went to Bath and Body Works this past weekend and did some retail therapy.  I was running out of smell goods anyway.  During this time of year they have their semi-annual sale.  I found some really nice smell goods in the 75% off bin.  I really like the signature vanilla fragrances that are mixed with lemon, coconut, and apricots.  I will be using these fragrances in my car to add a little bit of tranquility as I travel.  You may be able to catch some great deals because the sale is still going on.

Talk to you soon!
