My Manic Monday Look


Yesterday I wore the "Angelica long sleeve Romper" from Want My Look, I paired it with the "Cut Out Bootie" heels, also from Want My Look (so comfy and affordable by the way), and finished the look with my black mini Chanel Boy Bag. 

Rompers are so great because they are comfortable, and can be worn different ways.  You can dress it up by pairing it with heels and a cute little purse (which is what I did), or you can dress it down with flats and an oversized bag.


This particular romper is so fun and flirty due to the black with contrast flower pattern.  Flower patterns are a huge fall trend, and since I live in LA(where it never gets too cold), I'll be able to wear this all fall.

If you live in a colder climate, no problem. Simply throw a leather jacket over it to stay warm while still keeping the look fun.

For the hair and makeup look, I used Studio Fix Fluid Foundation by Mac in Color NC42.  I'm wearing Lilly Lashes in styles VENICE and TEHRAN, and Lilly Hair clip in extensions (wearing less than half the pack for a more conservative look).


Short rompers are definitely one of my current favorite trends, and I love this particular one since it has long sleeves so I can take it into fall. 

What is your favorite fall trend?

Lilly Hair Clip In Extentions Before and After Posts!!

I love seeing when you guys post before and afters, or photos of yourself wearing Lilly Hair clip in Extensions and tag me and #lillyhair. I worked so hard to create them, so it makes me so happy to see that you guys love your Lilly Hair as much as I do.  


I also love reading the caption and comments you make under the photo. You all seem so happy and many of you are describing how obsessed you are with your new hair, and that is exactly what I want, to make people happy and give you a product that is the best and really works.


So please continue to tag me and #lillyhair on Instagram in your photos so I will see them, and maybe next time you will be up here on my blog as an inspiration for other people!

 
Beautiful girls in Lilly Hair

Ok, so now lets talk about the hair for all of you who are new to my blog or have missed out. I've worked very hard to create the most glamorous set of hair extensions on the market. Lilly Hair is not only the thickest, most glam set of extensions, they're also the only set that comes with a luxurious hair hanger, and hanging hair bag all in one box to help keep you hair in great condition, especially while traveling. 



The hair you get is 100% Remy Human Hair and comes with seven pieces. The total weight of the hair is 260 grams and it's 20 inches long.  260g is A LOT of hair, enough to do even the thickest, biggest, most dramatic style.  To give you an idea of how much hair it is, an average hair extension pack is about 120g, so this is more than double.

20 inches long is also VERY long, I always have mine cut to be shorter, however I wanted to make it long enough so that even the longest hair could use them.

In addition to the hair extensions themselves, Lilly Hair is the only set of extensions that also comes with the hair hanger, and the hair bag.




These items are so important because they help your extensions last longer. After each wear, you can brush them out, clip them into the hanger, put them in the bag, and then hang them up.  This keeps them clean and more importantly knot free.

If you just throw your extensions in a drawer, they will become knotted, dirty, and will require more washing and harsh brushing which will shorter their life span.

The hair hanger and bag also make it super easy to travel with your extensions.

Overall, Lilly hair is easy easy to put in, to style and they last a really long time.  If you want to add volume or length to get that perfect glam look this is absolutely hair that will give you that stunning beautiful look. 

All other information you might need you can find if you visit www.LillyHair.com.

What's in My Shower?!


I get a lot of request from people wanting to know what's in my shower, so here you go!!

1. Dove body wash: I love body washes with fruity scents, or flowery scents (like Jasmine).  This one is a peach scent and is very moisturizing. With that said, I am not loyal to this particular body wash and buy a different one each time. This product can be purchased at your local drug store, or walmart/target type store.

2. Mens Triple Blade Razor (this one is the Fusion razor): One time in the shower, I used my boyfriend's razor- changed my life. I'm sure it's no different than the female triple blade razors, but thought it was, so I've used it ever since. This product can be purchased at your local drug store, or walmart/target type store.

3. Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub: For those of you that follow my blog, you may have read about this product before, because I've used it for years. I've tried all sorts of fancy cleansers, and this particular one works so great for my skin. It has little scrubbing micro beads that exfoliate my skin well. I wear a lot of makeup, I'm a heavy glam girl, so I need that extra exfoliation to help get my skin clean. This product can be purchased at your local drug store, or walmart/target type store.

4. Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleaner: I LOVE Murad, I use everything Murad under the sun (from facial lotions, to eye creams, to masks....). I have recently incorporated a Murad cleanser from the Age Reform Collection since my skin is aging now (31 is very different than 21). I use this cleanser in the morning, and the Biore at night. Or, if I didn't wear makeup on a particular day, I exclusively use the Murad cleanser. This product can be purchased at Sephora, Ulta, or any beauty specialty store.

5. Moses Hair Care: For shampoo and conditioner, I used a brand called Moses. I use the anti-aging system from their new Signature Gold Line. Their shampoos and conditioners are the best smelling I have ever used, it literally smells like perfume. That's important to me because I don't wash my hair every day, so I want it to smell as nice as possible. Their products leave my hair soft, shiny and easy to manage. I'm obsessed.  These products can be purchased at www.HairByMoses.com.

Well, that's my shower!!! What's in yours? Share your favorite products in the comments below.

Makeup Look with Product Breakdown, and Keloid Scar Help


I really loved yesterday's makeup look, so I wanted to give a product breakdown for those you you that may want to try something similar. 

Skin: I'm wearing Mac Studio Fix Fluid foundation (in color NC42)
Eyes: I used the Stila Cosmetics "In the Light" palette of eyeshadows 
Lashes: I'm wearing Lilly Lashes in Istanbul and Venice
Brows: I used Anastasia of Beverly Hills brow powder in Ebony
Lips: I'm wearing Mac Viva Glam II lipstick, Gleam Melanie Mills Naked Gloss mixed with Nars Striptease gloss. 


For those of you that don't know, I have a keloid scar in the center of my chest. I've struggled with trying to cover it for years.  Keloids are permanent, and there is no "cure" for them, so the only real option is to cover them with makeup.

Yes, you can try things such as steroid shots, lasers, silicone strips, gels/creams, even surgical removal followed by radiation, but reality is there is no 100% effective method for removing keloids, and anything drastic you do try may in fact make it worse or bigger.

I've accepted mine. With that said, I have treated it to try and make it as small and light as possible. The best treatment I found was with a Dr Raffy, a plastic surgeon located in Santa Monica. We did a series of lasers and injections that truly did lighten and reduce my scar in size (namely flatten it, it used to be very raised and red).

Most importantly, my treatment with Dr Raffy eliminated the constant itching, pain and discomfort I felt from the scar.  I couldn't even sleep on my back before (the tension of my scar pressing on my breast bone was too uncomfortable), or wear necklaces for more than an hour or two without having to take it off because it was so painful. Now, the scar is pain free :) I sleep on my back, wear necklaces, whatever I choose.

It is still there, but I must say, greatly improved. I will do an entire blog post this week on my keloid experience over the years, and my success with Dr Raffy, including before and after photos for you guys to see.

To cover up what is left of the scar, this particular day I used a heavy duty concealer called "Glamoflauge". It is super affordable and can be purchased at Target or Walmart. 

I really liked it, it lasted all day and didn't rub or sweat off. 

For those of you that suffer with keloids, or hyper-tropic scars, I know first hand how difficult it can be.  I used to be very self conscious of mine, but I have learned to accept it as a part of me, and it truly doesn't bother me anymore.

No one isn't going to not want to be your friend, or not love you because you have keloid scars, or whatever issue you may suffer with. No one is perfect, not even Beyonce (she's pretty damn close tho!). 

Learn to love yourself, imperfections and all, and you will be much happier in life.

Recent Outfit Looks- Day and Night

Here are a few different looks from this past week, as well as the outfit details so you can get the look.


The photo above was from a date night this past week.  I'm wearing a white lace dress from Miss Holly, an Australian company. I paired it with a red YSL bag and a gold Giuseppe Zanotti bracelet. Although you cant see them, I'm wearing strappy, nude YSL heels to complete the look.

For the hair and makeup, I'm wearing Lilly Hair clip in extensions by Bellami Hair in color 1 or jet black (wearing about half of the pack). I'm also wearing Lilly Lashes in Venice, which is currently my favorite lash.


For one of my day outfits this week, I wore a orange pant suit from Posh Shop.  It was bright, fun, and perfect for a busy summer day.  I paired it with a bright Hermes Birkin bag, and Christian Louboutin Platform heels (because the pant legs were so long!!).


For accessories I kept it simple with the same Giuseppe Zanotti bracelet and bold purple toned Balenciaga Sunglasses.



I'm wearing Lilly Hair clip in extensions again (about half of the pack for a more subtle look) in color 1 or Jet Black.


The final look for this post from this week is from a charity event my fiance Dhar and I attended.  He wore all black, so I opted for a pop of color with a bright red gown.  I'm wearing the "Taylor Gown" from WantMyLook. The gown is a steal at $59, so I have it in black, red and blue!

Fashion should be fun. Express yourself. It doesn't matter what labels you wear, or how expensive your clothes and accessories are, it's about flattering your body type and wearing things with confidence.

Don't follow trends, wear whatever makes you feel beautiful, because when you feel amazing, it will reflect in your actions.

THE PERFECT MAYTAL CARDIGAN


Have to tell you guys about the most amazing cardigan, it's called Maytal Cardigen and you can get it from WANTMYLOOK. From the day I got mine (I got White and Black), I put it on and wore it right away. And, I've worn them several times since, which means it was a good buy.

The cool thing with this cardigan is that you can wear it in so many different ways.  You can wear it open over a pair of jeans or shorts; or, you can close it up and wear it a bit fancier, almost like a dress. 

It has a very unique design and feels light and comfortable while wearing it. It's perfect for a casual day at work, or for a late night out. Best thing of all is that it's affordable!!!

You can get a couture look without paying the hefty prices, you just have to be a smart shopper.  This cardigan for example, it looks 100000% Helmut Lang (I even had a few people ask me if it was Helmut Lang when I wore the black one). However, I didn't have to pay Helmut Lang prices to get the same look, the Maytal Cardigen is super affordable.

 
In the photo above, I wore the Cardigan white over a red dress (for an office look). I'm also wearing about 1/2 a pack of LILLY HAIR clip in extensions in color 1B. When I go to the office, I tend to wear only 1/2 the pack for a more toned down look. 

In the photo below, I wore the Cardigan it in black over a little black dress for a sexy night out. As you can see here, I am wearing a full pack of LILLY HAIR clip in extensions, this time in color 1 or Jet Black. Clip ins are great because it allows you to alter your hair color with highlights or lowlights without zero commitment.


My fabulous, affordable find of the week is hands down the Maytal Cardigan by WantMyLook.com. CLICK HERE to link to the Cardigan.
