MVMT

Join the movement…ok, done and I love it!

MVMT reached out and introduced me to their brand.

I’m a sunglasses and watch junkie 😬

My first order with MVMT was Backstage Sunglasses in white (obsessed):

And this sleek Nova Crux watch:

I love a big face with minimal details, the rose gold accent and the fact I can dress it up or down.

YUMMIE

(www.yummie.com)

As many of you all know, I’m a mom, in my forties, and my body doesn’t ‘quite’ look like the 25 year old version of myself. I have my C-Section battle scar and I swear if I even look at chocolate it goes right to my hips. I recently discovered the Yummie brand active wear and am loving it! Their leggings hug in all the right spots, slimming through the hips and thighs. Here are the two leggings I have and (and love):

I’ve never been a big fan of bodysuits but loving their crew neck bodysuit! It is comfortable and flattering to my mid-section (yay).

While you’re on their website, I highly recommend checking out the full coverage cross back bra as well! I have one in black and love the support, comfort and criss cross back.

Jackie O Inspired:

I’m so in love with Old Hollywood Glam. If I had the energy, and team, I would turn myself into Old Hollywood every day. For now, I will just crush on this chic look inspired by fashion icon (and one of my role models), Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

For the hair (@hairby.pauliris).

-Fold the bandana 3 times on a flat surface ,

-Part your hair in 3 pieces ,

Easy & Chic CRISS-CROSS Bobby PIN STYLE

Hair by Pauliris
(IG: @hairby.pauliris):

 

• Wave up your whole head with curling iron

• Pull one side back

• Take Bronze Bobby Pins (or make a statement with colored Bobby Pins), criss-cross each bobby pin diagonally (I used 6 total in Meg’s hair). Wavy part of pin should be against your scalp.

 

• For final touch, used Pai-Shau Enhance Ritual, L’Oréal Lock IT weather control Hairspray, OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco for shine.

 

PONYTAIL WITH BOWS & FLOWERS 🌸 

Hair by Pauliris

(IG: @hairby.pauliris):

 
• CURL FULL HEAD OF HAIR (FOR FULL LOOK)

• Used brown knotted hair ties (From Ricky’s NYC) to make the actual bows  🎀

1 – Pull hair completely back into a low ponytail & release some strands to frame the face

2 – Take a clear rubber band and tie 2-3 inches down and then add as many as clear rubber bands as you would like (the longer the hair the better). We did 3 clear rubber bands in Meg’s hair and then pull each section and ‘bubble’

3 -Untie the brown knotted hair ties and make a neat bow right over the clear rubber bands.

• For final touch, used Pai-Shau Enhance Ritual, L’Oréal Lock IT weather control Hairspray, OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco for shine.

 

 
ALSO, you can use ANY flowers you prefer. You can start off by taking the flowers apart piece by piece & inserting them into each section of hair, NEATLY & EVENLY.  We used Baby’s Breaths here in Meg’s hair.
