If I ever get to that point (and please note that that will be way down the road although I did just turn 31) where I am carrying a child, then I will be more then happy to return to my modeling lingerie days but as a lingerie mommie to be model! As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Cake Lingerie and when I have friends that are pregnant, they will be gifted with this brand for sure! As one of our sponsors for posts on Kitten Lounge during NY Fashion Week, I have definitely taken notice of many of the pregnant editors that hit the shows and it makes me wonder if they're rocking fab pieces like the ones that you can get with this fab brand! I love that the line is always fun and sexy so that you can continue to bring luscious, sensual drama as you're that much closer to making a fab addition to your family. I can't wait to show you fab pieces from there collection as they will be apart of our Holiday Gift Guide that will launch within a few weeks. For now, enjoy these pieces and visit the site to see all the items that are available! Keep an eye out for their Facebook Fan Page for updates of their brand and check out their real mommie to be models as well!
Fashion Week continues and as I'm running around, it's hard to find great food options when you're doing a lot of coverage. This is not just a problem during this time period but our lives in general. Fess up, how many of us have grabbed something less then healthy as we were simply too tired to make something? Freshology ensures that we eat right so that we can look our best while making yummie meals. Now there is no excuse to grab one of the containers out of your fridge and to know that you are eating the nutrients that you need to match your fast paced life!
Top chefs make you meals that are delivered to your door and whether you're doing this to lose weight, keep food on your families table, are a mom to be or a new mommie, etc there is something for you. Dina Manzo of Real Housewives of NJ loves them and has a video testimonial! You can also find out more by following them on Twitter at @Freshology as well as their Facebook Fan Page as well. If you've heard about them or have always wanted to try it, the fab Freshology team are fans of Kitten Lounge and are including a promotional code (KittenNY10) where you can get free shipping for meals that are for 14 or 28 days! That's 2 to 4 weeks of planned meals and more time to enjoy life in general!
The business of fashion is one that is very interesting! Right now, we have fall hitting the stores for 2010 and as I type this, I am heading out to my shows for the day which will be available in Spring/Summer 2011 and I have also been fielding emails about fashion collaborations that I will be working on for Fall 2011 (PS I'm wearing looks for Spring/Summer right now) - fashion just doesn't stop! But you know, we have to live in the moment so I am amping my fall collection. One of my favorite parts of fall involves scarves! I'm all about crochet and sadly, it's not a skill that I am very good at so when in doubt, you go to the professionals! How can you not love the colors that Black Pearl Creations has? I love the colors, the scarves and of course when you go on her site, you know that there are tons of items that she has that will make your wardrobe cozy and amazing! That's really what Fashion Week is all about for sure - finding great brands and seeing how it works with your style. In addition to seeing her line and supporting this independent artisan, you can also check her out on her Facebook Fan Page as well as her Twitter account @BlackPearlCreat as well. I'm so pleased that she is one of our sponsors during this season's Fashion Week!
Makeup is an essential for me. I love a natural look but when it comes to Fashion Week, you definitely appreciate the fab makeup artists. Not only is application important but what it is made of as well! Fusion of Color is an amazing makeup line that is not only mineral based but has natural healing properties - now that's just the perfect combination! The line ensures that when you apply it, you're skin won't be irritated and you'll have that flawless radiant look that everyone wants to have! Whether you're looking to try new colors or you're in the mood to add to your ever growing collection, you'll absolutely love having this in your cosmetic case!
Trying something new is always a lot of fun but being able to have a little incentive is even better! Enjoy 15% off your purchases throughout NY Fashion Week as it runs through Sept 16th! Just use the code NYFW in the coupon box when you're ready to check out!
It's all about glamour when it comes to Fashion Week and as you're reading this, I'm currently at the DVF Studio watching the fab accessories panel with such luminaries as Alexis Bittar and more! So we all know that I love accessories as they make the outfit. There are times when we have to wear certain looks and it's the accessories that allow us to stand apart from everyone else (you know we have those times where it says "Cocktail Attire" and you're bound to wear the same dress and heels that others are wearing) that's in the room. Enter the amazing and decadent pieces that are available at Carla Morrison - who doesn't love fine jewelry and pieces that have the perfect amount of bling. It's because of that, that I'm super excited that they are one of Kitten Lounge's Fashion Week sponsors. Whether you're looking for rings, necklaces, earrings etc - they have it and gold and silver girls can come together to find something that transforms your entire look!
In addition to checking out their line on their site (and of course picking up fab finds), you can also stay connected to them via their Facebook Fan Page as well! Find out about their Gem Show where they showed in Germany yesterday and today (who knows what fab pieces were showcased) as well as other tidbits! Take a peek at their site to see what your favorites are!
Yesterday flew by as it was a day full of confirming, adjusting and of course prepping. I love going to spas and getting your hair done but when it's in the midst of one of the craziest times of the year it's yet another series of items on the to do list. Now there is one area that I sometimes avoid as I'm awful at it - my eyebrows. I have a love hate relationship with them. As much as I love them, trying to keep them tame and looking amazing is not my forte. So when a PR team reached out and told me about Hibba Beauty and I realized that her work is virtually everywhere - I said yes and hoped I would have Hibba herself!
What drew me to this was that I am not a fan of plucking my eyebrows and there is something about threading that seems natural to me. Above is an image that I took from Pretty Connected (so thank you). Located on 448 West Broadway in the midst of some of my fave places to shop such as Rosa Cha, this eyebrowologist can be found on the second floor. The space is tiny but everyone was so nice and welcoming. As I sat in the chair I was nervous as my brows were a bit bushy and I didn't know what the protocol was. I was actually a little nervous and right after I had relaxed that's when I realized that threading does have a bit of pain to it (although I'm a baby). It's more that you're stunned at the ripping sound as after the first couple of times, you get used to it.
Hibba is super fast and knows what's she doing. She knows how to look at your face and to see what works best. I wondered if my eyebrows would still be there but found that not only were they there but they were the way I have always dreamed that they would be! In addition, I learned that I could basically go back once a month to keep them in line which I will do from now on! Only one eyebrow was slightly less than perfect (which Hibba pointed out to me as I was so thrilled) but it seems that it will fill in nicely and my brows now have star quality! I was so pleased I hugged her on my way out.
This is definitely a must to go to and I know that they do other services which I am sure they do with the same care as they did my brows!
Fashion Week kicks off this Thursday (yes I know we are enjoying our long weekend during Labor Day); however, it's crazy how many shows and events take place right before or after the official start of Fashion Week (Sept 9th - Sept 16th). I find that this is the time that I start seriously prepping my mind, body and soul during this time! You can never be prepared and it's all about having great skin! Thankfully Terralina is the perfect way to start such a prep as well as to continue on as we head into the fall! Whether you know them from their presence on Cosmopolitan, InStyle, Elle etc - it's important to know that they are all about natural beauty! Throughout this Fashion Week period, you will hear about amazing brands that are sponsoring this site for a number of items and not only will you be able to find out about them but we hope you try them out as many are providing incentives!
Terralina is providing an amazing deal where if you buy 1 item, you receive the 2nd identical one free! How many times have we loved something and realized we should have stocked up on it - so this is the perfect solution! In addition, the belief in natural beauty created a product that was free of toxins and one that you could wear without worrying about the dangerous prolonged effects and of course, they do no animal testing at all! Whether you're looking too exfoliate, lotion or other items within your skincare regimen - we definitely suggest Terralina.
