Summer Faves» Beauty Products

summer beauty faves1. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo and John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Hair Conditioner, 2. Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer, 3. Etude House Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-talk #JPK004 Grapefruit Orange, 4. Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Skin Bath Wash Cloth/towel, 5. NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo Orgasm/ Laguna Mini 0.17 oz

After giving birth almost 18 months ago, my hair has really taken a big hit. During pregnancy, my hair and my skin were the beauty rewards! But post partum, WOW! Talk about losing hair and acne breakouts. While my hormones were maniacally rampant, I was looking for a good shampoo and conditioner to help ease the sudden flakes and hair loss. For a while, I stuck with Herbal Essence, my pre-pregnancy shampoo and conditioner. But my head began to flake so badly, I had to shower every day to feel clean! Luckily, a quick peruse through Sam’s Club, John Freida Luxurious Volume line caught my eye. What a difference this line has made to my hair. Healthier, shinier, and less maintenance! No more flakes and no more of that dirty itch the very next day.

With my breakouts (usually on my chin area), I finally decided to look for a concealer. I don’t like those with a tube and a wand. I just don’t. So a quick trip to Walgreens and a $5 rewards coupon in hand, I purchased the Maybelle Age Rewind Concealer. It’s so cool looking to me. Twist and apply. So easy. It’s great for covering under eye circles – New mom trick.

Etude House – need I say more? The ever expanding Jelly Lips line is crazy! I have purchased 6 lipsticks, but my favorite is JPK004 Grapefruit Orange. It looks mighty intimidating but on lips the orange turns pink. Apply layers to create a deeper pink. The only complaint I have is it does not last long – 1 -2 hours max on me. All depends on if I’m eating or if my lips are chapped.

Years ago, a friend gave me a Korean wash cloth she purchased at the Dollar Store. I have to say the Salux wash cloths are beyond superb. It’s a higher quality cloth – thicker and more exfoliating. Highly recommended to wash away the Texas ick that comes with summertime.

Lastly, I am not a tanner. I am a pale looking Asian chick. Bronzer is a life saver for me. I have been using Nars blush and bronzer duo for years. It’s my only bronzer – my go to color Laguna for that sunkissed look. Nars Orgasm blush is not my favorite blush but I like it for summer because of the coral hint it gives my cheeks instead of a powdery pink like the Benefit Dandelion that I use for the wintertime.

Comment below and tell me which beauty favorite you look forward to using. And thanks in advance for clicking on my links which could allow me to keep this blog up and running!

Summer Style » Black & White

by dietingfashion on June 23, 2014

Hello Everyone! I have been on a long hiatus from blogging. My 3 kids were sick from December to April. It was flu, flu, flu, and viruses. My eldest little girl was also diagnosed with a Lymphatic Malformation behind her left ear in February 2014 that needed a lot of attention. Finally life has settled down and I hope to be back in full blogging mode.

Interestingly enough, black and white schematics are back in full swing this summer. This seasons’ black and white designs are much more breezy with short mini skirts and beautiful nautical stripes. I do not prefer striped bottoms (even though I tracked down a b&w striped skirt from H&M recently), I prefer solid bottoms.

Reviews » DVF Lucy Crepe Jumpsuit

by dietingfashion on November 19, 2013

dvf6

I fell in love with the Diane Von Furstenberg Lucy Printed Jumpsuit in Wing Dance Mini New Apricot. It was love at first sight. Unfortunately it was sold out on shopbop.com. I just had to have it and I shelled out $460 to get it from Net-A-Porter.com (double the price than on shopbop.com).

dvf1

Sorry for the phone camera pictures. I did not find this jumpsuit appealing enough to break out the DSLR. I ordered a size 10 according to the size chart online. However when I tried it on, there were so many problems with the jumpsuit. It made me wish I had listen to the reviews around the internet.

dvf2

The size 10 was based on a 31″ waist which is accurate. Fits me to true to size. But that’s the only place it fit me. The inseam was too long. I was already wearing 5″ heels and the pant legs were still dragging on the floor.

Because of the Kimono sleeves style, there was no shoulder definition. The boat neckline was too large on my frame and it puddled downwards. I understand it supposed create a waterfall effect but what happened was the two button closures on the back of the neck were heavier than the material. The neckline kept pooling backwards causing the front neckline to become a mock turtleneck (and it bit into the skin of my neck) while the back drooped too low.

dvf4

And the worst part of the jumpsuit was the zipper part with hook and eye closure plus its 3 tiny snap on buttons along the side of the jumpsuit. My fingers are pretty slim and I usually have no trouble with tiny closure, but it took me about 5 minutes to snap and hook these closures.

The print is gorgeous and the material is a satin silk like crepe that is so comfortable. I so wished this was a keeper. DVF makes beautiful clothing that’s feminine and easy to wear. I was very disappointed this jumpsuit did not work out. It was swiftly returned and Net-A-Porter.com was quick to refund in full. I guess I should be happy about that. It did make me feel better that I did not have to waste time or money in the end.

Have you purchased something with high hopes and it disappointed you? Comment below and let me know!

Post Partum » Week 36 – The Jumpsuit

by dietingfashion on November 2, 2013

bcbgjumpsuit3

When I saw this BCBGMaxAzria peplum jumpsuit during the ShopBop Fall Sale, I knew I had to have it. My only concern was the sizing. I purchased a Medium (the largest size they had at the time) and I crossed my fingers hoping it would fit.

I was very surprised at the fit.

bcbgjumpsuit1

I still have to get this jumpsuit altered especially in the pant legs (too roomy) and alter in the top at the sides (my post pregnancy boobs are gone – so sad).

bcbgjumpsuit2

I think this jumpsuit is a great formal and professional outfit in one. The fit is perfect, the material is wrinkle free, and minimal alterations. I would love to wear this to a business meeting or even to date night (when will that ever happen?).

Outfit: BCBGMaxAzria Peplum Jumpsuit (here)
Shoes: Mui Mui Criss Cross Patent Leather Platform Heels sz 7.5 (Ebay)
Bag: Chanel Classic Quilted Medium Caviar
Jewelry: Banana Republic Necklace and Jewelmint Bracelet

Keep an eye out for my next post on another jumpsuit. Unfortunately, it did not look as good and I had such high expectations for it.

Post Partum » Week 35 featuring the Cropped Cape

by dietingfashion on October 26, 2013

juicycape1

Totally loving this weather! (Except when it makes my kids sick.) It’s a cool day at 64 degrees. The sun is out, no more rain and out comes my turtlenecks and sweaters. My kind of weather.

juicycape2

I decided to reach for my Juicy Couture Cropped Cape today. I really like the high cut sides that makes the cape flare out. I forgot to take a picture of the lining which is a beautiful print of (I believe) Cherry Blossoms.

juicycape3

I have been exhausted lately. So exhausted I have not exercised or stayed dedicated on my Paleo diet. I try my best to stay grain free. Probably one meal a day, I’ll have something with grains. It’s just so easy to reach for something with grains like rice, pasta or bread.

juicycape4

Exercising at home or going to the gym has been nonexistent too. My gym membership expired so that’s been keeping me at home. That’s no longer the case since I just found out I could renew online. Awesome!

juicycape5

Shirt: J.Crew Cashmere Turtleneck (here: 25% off till 10/30/13)
Coat: Juicy Couture Double Cloth Trench Cape (last season)
Pants: Loft Modern Straight Leg Jeans (here)
Shoes: Tory Burch Reva in Pebbled Magenta (similar here)
Bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy 30
Jewelry: Loft Beady Statement Necklace (old, similar here)
