Schwarzkopf Goodies

This week I received these goodies from Schwarzkopf. I was lucky enough to receive their Biotin Volume Magic Volume Powder, Essence Ultime Omega Repair and some samples of their Omega Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. 

I'm excited to try these products out and give you guys a review. I do suffer from damaged hair so I have high regards on this product. Haven't found a product to really work on my hair. 

I used this product this morning and let me tell you, once I applied it on my hair I felt it sucked up all the oil I had on my scalp. Felt the volume right away. 

Let me know what types of hair products you guys use and maybe I can try them out as well. 

Until next time................. Xoxo

Too Faced Event at Work!

This past Saturday we had the honor to host a Too Faced Event at work. This was the launch of the new Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye shadow Palette. I love it when we have brand partnered events because we get to meet new people, and this time it was the Too Faced Pro Squad. They are an amazing group of girls, so inspiring and really down to earth. 

They brought pops and goodies for us  and clients to try. It was also a chance for clients to get see the new products and get mini-makeovers using the new products. 

Has anyone tried the peach palette? I was able to get it this time around and I can't stop using it.

Too peachy, seriously!! 

Until next time............................ Xoxo

Planning Birthday #OOTD

With my birthday coming up in March, I'm already planning where to go and what to wear. This is by far the most important thing on my mind because I love birthdays!!!  I can't help it. Always trying to stay ahead of the game. 

I'v been looking for outfit inspirations on some blogs, Instagram, Pinterest and of course online stores. I came across this online store and they seem to have more of my style in clothing which is StyleWe.

I have seen a lot of jumpsuits and Kimonos in a lot of #OOTD. My style has evolved throughout the years and I have always wanted to wear a jumpsuit and this year, I might just have to bite the bullet and go for it. I have a new motto for this year and it is "New Year, New Me". So cliche right, but I am determined to really follow this motto all throughout 2017.

Here are some of my fave pieces that I will be getting to make this dream outfit possible. 

This v-neck 3/4 lenght black kimono is one of my favorites. I like the fact that it has a belt around the waist to cinch and make it look fitted. I can also pair it with some black skinny jeans and some nude or black pumps. 

This two-piece velvet jumpsuit is giving me life. I love the color and the fabric. Also, it looks really comfortable and so sophisticated. I love it!! 

With that said, I need your help. What should I wear? Any input? 
Help me decided! 

Until next time......... Xoxo 

Inspired Outfit: Kourtney Kardashian Style Edition

As you all know I post #OOTD on my Instagram page. If you don't follow me, why not?! Here is the link to my page @fellowfashionista

Well, I'm always trying to get #OOTD inspirations and I came across a picture of Kourtney Kardashian outfit online and I was so inspired to recreate the look. I had similar pieces in my closet and said why not. 

.................and topped it off with my new leather jacket from @blanknyc. I'm so in love and can't stop wearing it. I bought it at Nordstrom in the clearance aisle and let me tell you, it was definitely a steal!!! 

Until next time.....................Xoxo

Snow bathing in Big Bear, CA

I finally had a day off yesterday and decided to drive up to Big Bear, CA. We spent the day playing in the snow and exploring the city. The weather was gorgeous. My kids enjoyed it so much, and at this age, is just about making memories for them.

We left the house and hit the freeway a little after 9 am and took us less than two hours. Going up the mountain is always scary because of the elevation and the windy road. I'm always afraid of the kids getting car sick or something but luckily that hasn't happened to us. 

My family. 

I was able to take some pictures of our family outing. Hope you guys like them. 

Snowbathing... the best!! 

Loving this picture, thanks to hubby for the photo and idea! 

Until next time........ Xoxo

Dupe Vs. Splurge Makeup Sponge Edition

So we all know when it comes to beauty products, we can definitely spend more than what we need but there's also barging shopping. Now, the beauty industry is way different from what it was 5 years ago. A lot of companies are coming out with good affordable products. 

In this case, I will be giving you a review on two makeup sponges. We all know THE BEAUTY BLENDER. I came across this product a while ago and I was hesitant to use it because it was a sponge and I didn't think the application was going to look so smooth. I finally gave it a try and wow, I was amazed at how good my foundation looked. It looked nice, airbrushed and dewy. This has now replaced all my foundation brushes and I switch it out for a new one every 3 months. 

The next product will be a similar product but from another brand, what we call a dupe. It's the Sephora Collection Airbrush Sponge. I was introduced to this sponge by one of my coworkers. She started using and raving about how good it was and I decided to give it a try. I was actually surprised, the sponge gave me the same results as the beauty blender. It left my skin looking a little bit more dewy and airbrushed. I think the shape has a lot more to do with it but I was happy with the results. 

Retail Price $20 
Shape: Egg Shape 
How to use: Use damp 
High definition make-up sponge, non-latex foam 

Retail Price $12
Shape: Flat bottom and slanted top 
How to use: Use damp 
Made out of latex-free material 

To recap, I would definitely recommend both products. If you are on a budget, try out the Sephora Collection sponge, if you want to splurge and give the beauty blender a try, go ahead. Both will do the job and I'm sure you won't regret your decision. 

Until next time.............................. Xoxo 


Because it's raining in Southern California, I love the fact that we can finally wear sweats, jackets and boots. I love this weather so much, it seriously is the best! 

Here is an #ootd from Tuesday. I live in black, grays and whites, best color palette. 

.............and in case you notice, can't stop wearing my new shoes. 

Until next time............ Xoxo
