”Jessica

      Love is what describe my feelings for this dress. The colors are so vibrant and welcoming. The dress is available in one-size-fits all only. It would be great for someone vacationing on an island, or a pregnant woman. If you have never seen comfort, that’s what it looks like. I love it.

The Right Way To Pair Ruffles With Ruffles

The right way to pair ruffles with ruffles     Wearing ruffles alone can be overwhelming; even wearing them with certain accessories can make you look like you are wearing your whole wardrobe. Above is an example you can follow if you want to wear ruffles with ruffles.

      The idea is to simplify the whole look. The distance between the ruffles really matter. Wearing a ruffled dress with ruffled shoes is okay as long as the shoes are not overly ruffled. The same goes for wearing ruffled pants and skirts.

      Would you wear ruffles with ruffles?

Cheap Summer Find: DKNY Shoes, Flip Thong Flat Sandals $13

”DKNY

      Product Description:

Casually cute and ready for summer. DKNY’s Flip thong sandals feature a thick sole and an adjustable ankle strap.
  • Imported
  • Man-made/elastic upper
  • Round open-toe thong flat sandals with adjustable ankle strap
  • Man-made sole

    My Opinion: 

     I bought these sandals despite the one star review they got on the Macy’s website. My initial  thought was I could not go wrong with $13.00. Then I received the sandals exactly on my birthday ( June 25th). I was excited until I tried them on.

     The materials don’t feel like DKNY materials. They feel cheap under my feet. The original price was $39.00, so I really thought I got a good deal, but it was not what I was expected at all. I want to keep them only because they look good on my feet.

Who Should Wear A Pair Of Women Rompers?

Who should wear rompers




Hi guys,
      Summer is here and I know some of you can’t wait to get into your short shorts. Rompers are  one of the new trends this year. They actually re-appeared back in 2010, but not a lot of fashion lovers were into them. Today, rompers are everywhere. They have been spotted on celebrities like Nicole Richie and Eva Longoria.

       Here are a few rules you should think about before you consider rompers as part of your wardrobe.
  1. Stay away from rompers if you are chubby. They will only make you look bigger and shorter.
  2. Rompers look better on tall, Small, or medium size women.
  3. If you are short, consider buying shorter rompers, that will make your legs look longer. A pair of rompers with a high waisted belt will make the eyes travel upward, creating a tall illusion. Wear heels like wedge shoes instead of flats.
  4. If you have narrow shoulders and short arms, wear a strapless pair to flatter your shoulders and your arms.
  5. Tall, curvy women with small busts should: wear rompers with ruffles, or wide belt to hide these flaws. They should avoid rompers with peplum details to avoid too much emphasis on the hips.
How are you wearing your rompers this summer?

Fund Raising: Collecting Slightly Worn Shoes For Soles4Souls

”         Last year my church collected more than 700 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls. And yesterday they did the same thing. These are some of the shoes that I donated myself. My husband and the kids also donated some shoes. Some of the shoes were just sitting in the garage collecting dusts. I became involved with soles4soles about a year ago. I want to be part of the great work that they are doing. They help countries around the world, including my birth place, Haiti. I want to encourage you to support them either by donating your shoes at their nearest location, or by donating $10.00 using my personal link

 

         When you give don’t give the worn out shoes that you wouldn’t give to your sister. Give the shoes you would want to borrow from your girlfriend’s closet. It’s summer and you are probably thinking about getting new sandals, give away the ones that you no longer wear. The ones that have become too small because of pregnancy or weight gain. “Give and it will be given onto you.” Visit the website for a location close to you, or for more information on how to give.

REVIEW: Indian Hemp And Haitian Vetiver Lotion (with Neem Oil)

”indian

 Hi Lovelies,
I have another great review for you. This product was a gift from my brother who’s currently living in Germany. He is doing some kind of work for the army. Lord, I miss him. Anyway, I get a lot of things for free y’all. Last Sunday I got a $25 MACY’S gift-card and a coffee mug. The secret is to do little things for others without expecting anything from the person.

More Information:
      I know you might be asking yourself what on this natural earth of ours is  Haitian VETIVER? I am from Haiti,  and all I can remember about Vetiver is that builders used the roots to build houses. They would let  the roots sit in mud for a while and than lay them over barbed wires to form the walls of the house. I never knew that it had healing powers. Click here for more info on Vetiver.

My personal opinion: 

 Pros:

  • Moisturizing beyond belief
  • Good for the price
  • Great for extremely dry skin
  • Not messy
  • Great for sunburn and blemishes

Cons:

  • The smell is over-powering

The bottom line:
     The smell is very strong while applying the lotion, but it does not last. I don’t know about you, but I don’t need all this fragrance ( senti bon)  in my  healing lotion. The product can leave your skin very greasy if you use too much. It is more like a cream than a lotion. The consistency is very thick. You get best results if you use it right after your shower. Use it on dry skin if you have sunburn or mosquito bites that hurt. You can buy this product online for less than $10.00.  I am recommending this product to you. Try it and let me know what you think.
