Prabal Gurung For Target


The Prabal Gurang for Target launched on February 10.  The collection of 92 vibrant colors is available online and at Target stores from now until March 23, 2013.   However, if you haven’t been there you better run to your closest store or go shop online as some of the pieces are SOLD OUT online and local stores.

I like the Target collaborations because they are fun and bring fashion that would normally be unaffordable to all fashionistas with budgets in mind.  I personally would not spend $2700 on a dress that I would only wear one time.  However, I’m willing if the style is right I’m willing to spend  $500 to buy selected pieces from a designer collaboration. My recommendation when you are considering purchasing garments from Target collaborations is to look at the original designer’s website and try to match pieces that look similar in style and cut to what the designers make.   I’m looking forward to the next collaboration!

Here are the items I purchased for my daughter who wore her outfit on Valentine’s Day week.

Get The Look! Sophia Vergara’s Look Is A Winner of 2013 Golden Globe Awards

I spent part of the evening checking out more than 70 Golden Globe Awards red carpet looks.   One of the actresses that caught my attention was Sophia Vergara.  Sofia was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Comedy Series and her show ‘Modern Family’ was also nominated for Best TV Comedy Series.  She looked very fresh, sophisticated and stylish in her black  sequined ball gown by up-and-coming designer Michael Cinco and is bedazzled in Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.  She was accompanied on the red carpet by her son Manolo, owner of Nuevon on YouTube. Sophia’s look is a winner of the Golden Globe Awards in my book.

The Importance of Skincare & Shinto Clinical Smooth Answer Product Review

Skincare is important to me. I’ve been caring for my skin since I was a teenager. I’ve been removing my makeup daily and washing my face with skin cleaners. I’ve also been taking measures to protect my skin against sun damage, dryness and wrinkles by purchasing products that allow my skin to breathe.

I’ve tried several over the counter products, but they don’t work well with my sensitive skin. For the past 20 years I’ve been using department store facial beauty products. They are usually more expensive, but I have seen the best results from high-end products versus over the counter products.

I recently had the opportunity to test the  Shinto Clinical by Kimora Lee Simmoms  Smooth Answer skin care product. I was very impressed by the ease of use of their website and the detailed information provided on their product line.  I was also very intrigued to see that the products were featured in several magazines.  You can read more about my shopping experience here.


The Shinto Smooth Answer product is a moisture cream filled with anti-aging ingredients. According to the product description, the product gives your skin a smooth dewy appearance and instantly moisturizes, hydrates and nourishes the skin.   The product has been clinically proven to bind moisture directly to the skin to provide a firming and tightening feeling to the skin.

I removed my makeup and applied the product as soon as the package arrived and immediately felt the results. Smooth Answers hydrated my skin and made it feel soft. It also has a wonderful light fragrance. I tested the product day and night and it made my face feel refreshed and hydrated.


After testing the product, I would recommend this product. Shinto Smooth Answers is the first product I’ve tested that makes my skin feel soft instantly.  Every time I use the product I felt like I was getting a facial at a resort.   It also gave me a little bit of a glow.   Question: Is skincare important to you?  How has your skincare evolved from teenage years to today?

Makari DeSuisse Hair Care – Hair Anti-Breaking Serum Review

I have been looking for products for my hair to protect my hair from damage when I flat-iron and curl my hair. My hair is naturally curly and takes me about 2 hours to wash, blow dry, flat-iron and curl. It’s definitely a time-consuming task, but I believe it’s important to care for my hair. With all the heat I have been applying to my hair I was looking for a product to protect it while I curl it. I also needed a product to apply periodically during the week to maintain a healthy & natural shine.


I had the opportunity to review the Makari DeSuisse Hair Care – Hair Anti-Breaking Serum. You can see the photos of my Amazon shopping experience here on Google+. I need a product to revitalize my hair and protects my hair as it repairs it. On the first day I saw immediate results. My hair was shiny and felt a lot healthier. The hair serum has a nice soft and light fragrance as well. The ends of my hair were lively and not dull. Prior to applying the serum my scalp was feeling a bit dry. After I added some serum to my scalp my scalp has a healthier feel.

The one thing I really like about the Makari DeSuisse Hair Care – Hair Anti-Breaking Serum is the dispenser. The end of the dispenser let’s you apply the perfect amount for your hair needs. One drop for revitalization and shine and two drops to apply to the entire hair including ends and scalp.

I recommend this product for all women with ethnic hair to maintain your natural curly hair or to care for your hair if you flat-iron or curl your hair periodically. What type of hair do you have? How do you maintain your hair?
