Designer Wedding Dresses for Plus Size Women

This firs tone might not be as appealing as you hope if you have a larger bust, so be careful. The lace is a great touch, though.

Instead of covering up your large breasts, why not flaunt them with a scalloped v-neck? We also love the high-low style of the hemline.

This is a perfectly romantic dress.

If you want a little bit of lace, but without losing the glam factor… try this!

Mia Mariu Review: Great bronzer for fair skin tones, Amazing moisturizing lip gloss and lipstick!

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013


I am VERY much on board with Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetics. I received some items to review, so let’s get into it. The highlights:

1. Bronzer for fair skin!

2. Moisturizing lip gloss AND lipstick that moisturizes!

Why go for Mia Mariu? These items are made with natural ingredients like botanicals, vitamins, minerals (duh), peptides and antioxidants. I feel the quality is definitely high. Read on for my Mia Mariu Review summaries.

Hydrating Stick Gloss Review – Lipstick that moisturizes! Mia Mariu lipsticks and lipglosses are amazing for this reason: they are HYDRATING and have lip balm qualities. I opted for “Beso” which is a rosy pink. It has a sheer quality until you build it up, so you don’t need to be afraid of the candy pink color. It feels very creamy on my lips, which makes me want to apply it more often. And that makes me look better more often! Plus, I hate when normal lipsticks start to dry out around the edges of my mouth, and this doesn’t d ... Read More

Shadora Jewelry Reviews: I now understand the “fake” rumors

Friday, January 18th, 2013


It’s actually not fake, but this jewelry isn’t high-quality. This is a honest review of why these items are okay, but not amazing. offers what they call “fabulous finds at impossibly low prices.” With a pair of White Sapphire and silver studs in my hands, I’m ready to give my ruling to add to Shadora jewelry reviews. says it offers real gemstones that is not costume jewelry, and I have no reason not to believe them. But then why are people are googling for “Shadora Fake Jewelry”? Well, probably because when something seems too good to be true it often is. Here, I think they walk the line.

It’s not about whether their jewelery is fake, it’s about the quality of their real jewelry. They use real gold, silver and gemstones. But I believe these are lab-created gemstones. The way they assemble the jewelry also minimizes their use of metal to save on cost. So, it’s all technically real, but they’ve found ways to give you these low prices. It’s the quality that isn’t so great. I would purchase from there if it was for me, but this is not jewelry yo ... Read More

Why is the new Dove body wash so much better than before? I found out. (Reviews)

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013


Dove has NEW and improved body washes. Their latest is the Dove Winter Care Body Wash. This is the first of their Seasonal body washes.

What makes these body washes better? They have a formula with Glycinatae, which no other mass brands use. Glycinate is an ultra-mild ingredient. You’ll usually find it in high-end beauty/facial products. I know you guys hear a lot about how lathering is bad because it strips your skin. But with Glycinate, you can have that cleaning lather you expect while still having your skin pampering by being nourished.

The Dove Winter Care Body Wash is gentle on the skin and reverses skins of that dry winter skin. What you can get from this body wash is something you’ll never get with soap. It is creamy and hydrating on dry, flaky and rough skin. Along with the Glycinate, the latest Dove body washes have the brand’s NutriumMoisture technology for their mildest and most caring formula yet.

This body wash rinses away quickly and completely, leaving no oily residue. Your skin is left fresh and nourished.

My skin always needs moisture as it likes to be dry, which is why I never compromise when it comes to a body wash. Because my skin lets me know when I’ve used a product that gave me no nourishment. This morning I washed one arm with a soap, ,and ... Read More

I’ve already provided you guys with some Votre Vu Reviews on the color side of things, and now it’s time to discuss what Votre Vu offers in the way of skin care!

Votre Vu Skin Care Reviews

Votre Vu CHAMPAGNE KISSES Review – Volume Enhancing Lip Balm

The tube is nothing fancy, but looks can be deceiving.This moisturizing lip balm gives you a healthy dose of hydration with every application. And lips soothed with sweet almond oil, coconut oil, and shea butter will of course feel great, but there’s even more to this secret agent item. It’s a great lip primer, keeping your lip product from feathering as well as making the product last longer. And don’t you want a good lip balm under your tints, sticks and glosses? I always do. And the Champagne Kisses lip primer and balm actually feels like it stays under the next layer of colored lip product instead of getting blended away. I really love feeling like t ... Read More

Votre Vu Reviews: If it’s good enough for Adele…

Friday, January 4th, 2013

adele makeup

Inside: Votre Vu reviews from an up-close experience with several different products they make.

I was able to try some different products by Votre Vu. This post will focus on some items they do with their Votre Vu makeup and color items. I tried three different items:

ARCH DE TRIUMPHE – Brow Definer – Warm

This is a wonderful product to enhance brows because it is lightweight and water resistant. The sheen mimics natural hair, even. I find this to be a great item, and think a little touch up to the brows is something all women should do to look red carpet ready. It really just helps frame your eyes. I do recommend this product as both efficient and high quality.

BEAUTÉ EN BRONZE – Bronzer Duo – Monaco

I fear I got the wrong color! This bronzer section is matte, which is important to many women who see any shimmer as a far to youthful approach. I ... Read More

best skin care products 2013

The deal is, your skin is being assaulted by external factors all the time. This is one of the reasons the skin on your face ages and gets wrinkles. So, you want to mount a defense. Like armor, but, well, way more comfortable.

Dr. Adam created a line of items using his big ol’ science brain. The brand overwhelms me, but the items in it are so worth checking out that I’ve gone through all of my materials to bring you the information I think you most need to know.

First, who is this Dr. Adam? And is he really from Paris?

Dr. Adam is a chemical engineer graduated from of the very prestigious National Graduate School of Chemistry – Paris. He holds over 50 exclusive patents for items in human health, so great is his ability to invent such dynamic breakthrough components.

And, yes, I think he’s from Paris. He’s at least French!

What has he done with this crazy, immense talent? He’s created a large range of hypoallergenic dermatological skin care for his brand, ... Read More
