Tall Ships LA Festival

A giant 40ft rubber duck was at the San Pedro Maritime Museum this weekend and my husband was amazing enough to take me go see it. It was early morning so I had to get ready in less than an hour...I know right! Anyways when we got there, there was so many people there just to see the duck. Of course there was more to do and see but I really wanted a picture with this duck. Isn't he cute!

I love to find brands that offer great products and DressV happens to be my newest one. When you go on to their website you will be amazed by how many beautiful wedding gowns they have and not to mention the reasonable prices. I recently got married and I wish I new about DressV sooner. Anyways they have a great product selection of course you have your wedding apparel, special occasion and accessories anything from shoes, handbags and jewelry. I had the opportunity to pick out an item and I chose this lovely floral design handbag

This handbag has a lot of room for your everyday items, it can be used with or without the strap. It has a zipper closure in the front and a hidden zipper pocket in the back great for your phone. Very comfortable and roomy!

#ShopSmarter and Save By Buying Gift Cards at Safeway

Though times do not always call for drastic measures! It so easy to save money without having to cut back on your everyday shopping. Save over $20 by buying gift cards before you shop, dine or hit the town. So if you know you have to go back to school shopping for yourself or the kids why not purchase a Kohl's GC that will save you $15 while getting $100 worth of merchandise. Or if you are like me, my husband and I enjoy our movie dates roughly spending $25-35 each time we go so buying a Fandango GC will make a great difference.  
Savvy shoppers can triple dip on savings this week when they purchase multi-pack gift cards.
Here’s How It Works 1. Promotional Offer - 15% off gift card multi-packs from 8/16 through  8/19 (offer valid on Fandango, TGIF, Xbox, Cold Stone or iHOP)
2. Fuel Rewards - Safeway offers double-fuel points for every dollar  you spend on gift cards redeemable at Safeway, Chevron, or Texaco  stations ($1 = 2 fuel points). Requires Club Card. To find out more  abo…

Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler Review

From all the lash curlers I have tried I have not been happy with many, specially my favorite Tarte gold eyelash curler that lost its color... I came across the Bella and Bear through Tomoson and said why not give it a try. Of course I was hesitant since many claim to bet the best and give you incredible results. It feels really sturdy not like some of the other curlers. It curls the lashes so well and you get great results in a quick amount of time. I know based from the ones I have used in the past that it can be difficult to achieve results. Sometimes it wont even last all day. Worst case this happened to a friend of mine she actually lost her eyelashes trying to press on the curler to achieve results!  The first time I used the Eye & Mighty curler was for work. I like to keep it simple and effortless. I applied two coats of mascara and that was enough to get a false lashes look. Of course nothing dramatic but it does the job well. Will I recommend this curler absolutely! 

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour full Coverage Foundation

I recently purchased the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage foundation from QVC. Tarte is one of my favorite makeup brands so I had to give this a try. As you can see from the image bellow I had some face demons courtesy of my eyebrow threading so I was red all over. With this foundation it was so easy to hide them. The consistency is great sort of like when you are applying a really good soothing lotion...if that makes any sense. Along with the foundation I purchased the brush which I have to say is the best thing or the best brush that I owe. It is so soft it applies the foundation really well without leaving any streaks or lines.
