Dear Fashionista: Getting Rid of Clothing – #FashionFriday

Dear Fashionista, I always wear the same thing even though I have tons of clothes. Once and for all I'd like to purge what I'm not wearing. It's just in my way, and I detest clutter.

She is an uber organized woman, so I was shocked to get this request. Having her … [Read more...]

Dear Fashionista: Need New Day Wear – Fashion Friday

Dear Candice, I’d love to have you help me for every day. Since I’ve gained a little weight, I don’t have a clue on what to wear. Connie of Brain Foggles (@ConnieFoggles) I asked Connie some basic questions and got that she's more of a square shaped frame, and doesn't want to wear any kind of heel.

Redken Velvet Gelatine

I can't even remember where I received the sample of Redken Velvet Gelatine O7, but I'm certainly glad to have been able to try it. I am ever on the hunt for a product to protect my hair from heat damage when I blow dry. I have mentioned before that my hair is very thick, and there's a lot of it. It makes blow drying, especially in the summer, a laborous activity I despise. It takes me about 15 … [Read more...]
