My Favorite Things…
I have decided to start a special series of blog posts dedicated to MY favorite things…. random, personal, silly, everyday, special, useful (and sometimes not) things that I love and use in my daily life, so here are two of my favorite things to get started…
The “Smooth Balconette Bra” from Cacique~
Sorry if this is TMI, but believe it or not, I get almost daily compliments (from women) on how great my chest looks in my tops and blouses. I know how difficult it is for women with large breasts to find a great bra, and I have tried A LOT of them for my DDD’s, so I am letting you all in on my secret…
I owe this greatness, not only to my family genes for blessing me with being well endowed, but also to Cacique Lane Bryant for “The Smooth Balconette” bra. I seriously love this bra and I wear it EVERY single day. I have like 20 of them- no joke!!! I keep several different styles of bras in my wardrobe such as strapless, plunge, and sports bras of course, but 99.9% of the time I wear “The Smooth Balconette” bra.
Reasons I love this bra:
-It is a full-coverage bra with cushioned straps that are thick enough for support, but still thin enough to wear with a tank top
– The material is very smooth, so it is great to wear underneath all fabrics
– It is low-cut in the front so you can wear it with lower cut tops
… and most importantly, it has hidden underwire and shaped cups… this is what makes the girls “stand at attention”!!!
If you have not tried this bra, you should seriously go now and check it out, just make sure that you are wearing the correct size to ensure a proper fit! The Cacique bra specialists at Lane Bryant can hook you up with a fitting and make sure you have the correct size.
***Special shout out to actress and model, Kendra C. Johnson, who is a friend and client of mine… She is my inspiration for this blog post. I sold her on this bra several months ago and now she is a believer and spreading the word…haha!!!
Ardell False Lashes- Demi 110 Naturals
I LOVE false lashes and have worn LOTS of them over the years, whether it was for a photo shoot, event, or just to look extra glam for a night out on the town. My favorite lashes BY FAR, are the Demi 110 Naturals by Ardell. I love these lashes because they give my eyes the right amount of “pop” without making me look like ridiculously fake, and I got the seal of approval from one of my favorite makeup artists, Marlene G., who I totally trust with my face.
Also, I recently discovered that the Ardell website has a “lash selector” tool, which allows you to find the perfect lash for your eye size and shape. The Ardell site also has a few different videos you can watch to give you a step by step course in applying lashes, if you are not sure what to do.
***Special score- Last Wednesday night I attended the Curvy Cocktails Meet & Greet, hosted by LA Fatshion Bloggers and The Curvy Collective as part of the kick off to Full-Figured Fashion Week(end) LA, and the lovely bloggers had gifts for all of the attendees, which included 2 pairs of my favorite Ardell lashes!!! Sweet!!! Thanks fabulous bloggers- it totally made my day!!!!
