The Bella C Beanie

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

This is such an adorable white beanie hat from Bella C.
It is very soft and fluffy with a nice braided knit design and the inside is made of faux fur lining which keeps my head nice and warm.
The hat has a stiff visor and stretches on the back for a snug fit and covers the ears which is great.

In the pictures, I wore it with my hair in a bun and the hat still looked cute and fashionable.
I reviewed the white one but it also comes in many colors.

I'm very pleased with this oversized hat and it came just in time for the winter months.
The Bella C Beanie can be purchased for $9.50 on Amazon...

Great for the Bus Stop Or A Disney Outing

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

This is such an adorable black cross body pouch bag and the material is like a soft pleather with a woven design. 
I expected it to be smaller since it says for cell phones but it's actually quite big and many more items can fit including a cell phone.

It has 4 pocket compartments and it zips up and closes with a magnetic closure.
Then, it has a fairly deep zippered pocket on the back.
The shoulder strap is adjustable and can be worn on the neck, on the shoulder or across the chest.

This pouch is great for me because I was used to wearing a fanny pack to store my cell phone, keys and ID's to walk to my kid's bus stop every day but now everything and more I need fits perfectly and it's not bulky and looks stylish. 

In the pictures below, you see the items that I fit in mine such as big sunglasses, house keys with 3 keychains, my little wallet, my Nokia lumia 360 cell phone and some papers and yet more can be stored inside.

Overall, this pouch is great and makes a wonderful gift, it's classy, convenient, stylish and looks beautiful.

It's also great for my Disney trips or outings:)
You can get it on Amazon for $16.99 and it comes in a variety of colors...

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

Oh, these Bella C tights are adorable in the bear pattern, they also come in kitty and bunny patterns as well.

The top of the tights are flesh tone all through the thigh area then starting from the knee to the toes is the bear pattern in black.
On the back of the tights, is a tiny circle symbolizing the Bears' tush. :)

These cool stockings come in a cute packaging and they fit me comfortably and as for reference my height is 5'2 and my weight is 114 and waist is 29 1/2 and these are stated to fit size 2 -6 in clothing.

Overall, these are sturdy, cute and fashionable of course not all gals my age (40) would wear these but I'm a unique fashionista so I'm totally into this style of Japenese fashion called Kawaii with some exceptions of course. LoL

Here are some pictures plus you can get these Bella C tights on Amazon...

These Stockings Are Darling


Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

These stockings from Tirain Fashion are so beautiful and classy and gives a Betty Boop vibe.
What I really like about them is the design.
They almost look like leggings because of the cropped detail on the ankles, and the foot part is like a nude color.

The band for the thigh is made with plastic and adorned with lace and it holds in place without sliding off.
Then underneath the lace, there is another pattern combined with a red bow ribboned effect.

These black and nude stockings are just darling and should be handled with care.
I'm very happy that these stockings come in various styles and they are one size fits most.
I paired mine with my my 4 inch Madden Girl heels, a little black dress from Ross Stores and it looked super cute with a comfortable fit.

Here are some pictures below...
You can find these beautiful stockings from Tirain Fashion for $8.99 on Amazon

Beautiful Pin Up Bodycon Dress From Acevog

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

As soon as I saw this dress and was asked to review it, I was very excited because its definitely my fashion taste.

The detailing of the vivid red cherries with green leaves on the black background are very eye catching as well as the swirled white pattern and the large button placements.

This beautiful bodycon knee length pencil dress with capped sleeves is stitched very well and it's a bit stretchy on the waist.

I ordered the size Small so it fits a bit snug but it still fits.
I would have preferred a size Medium to have more of a wiggle room for my 114 pound body frame.

To give an idea, I'm a 36 B and my waist is 29 1/2 waist so this dress runs small and I would definitely go a size up.
I say this, because the back zipper was a little challenging going up. Lol but I managed and I could walk in the dress without problems.

I'd definitely suggest hand washing and air drying it so it won't shrink.
Overall, the dress is great for a wedding, a work day or an event or a date.

To give it more of that pin up look, I paired it up with some small pumps, bold and black sunglasses with my hair up and added a red lip.
It's classy and stylish and will take you back in time.

You can get this gorgeous dress from the company Acevog for only 14 bucks on Amazon and sizes range from Small to 2XL. Oh yes! With many patterns to choose from:)

The New Braiding Handbook

Leave a Comment
Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

When you think of a Side French braid and your new to braiding like I am, you probably want to pull your own strands out because of the so many failed attempts you either tried on yourself or on someone else.

Yep that's me! For some reason, I can't seem to get the principles on doing that particular braid. 
Again, I learned a three strand braid at age 30 so I'm way behind to begin with. Lol

But not really, because of this new book called The New Braiding Handbook 60 Modern Twists on Classic Hairstyles, lol long title I know, I was able to make a nicer not messy Side French braid.

This book by Abby Smith is great for beginners like moi and for those who want to up their braiding game by adding and combining them with different hairstyles.

These hairstyles are beautiful in this book and with lots of practice and basic braiding principles these styles can be achieved.

Abby details her book with the basic hair tools you will need to get started, the basic hair types and the basic Techniques.

The Braids beautifully illustrated in the book are:

I absolutely love this Bohemian Crown Braid...

Here's a style in the book that is not a braid but it's great to know this little secret used on celebrities.
I tried it and it looked good.

Here's the Side French braid I did on my Barbie Doll head.
I was excited! I learned! and it looked neat and not messy this time.
Of course, it's not perfected but I will keep on practicing so I can do it on myself and on my daughter.

Oh yes! here's another type of braid in the book it's called a Rope braid.

Again, Barbie was my hair model lol

The New Braiding Handbook will never go out of style and I'm keeping it in my library.

You can obtain a copy here : The New Braiding Handbook  and it's published by Ulysses Press

If you are a beginner like me then this book should definately be in your library as well.

Abby is also a Blogger and Christian Singer:)
Here's her blog: Twist Me Pretty
