Back to “School”!

It’s been a while but Mommy Fashionality is back! Hello mommies!!! Fall is almost here. It’s a time of transition and for many people, their favorite fashion season. While I do appreciate the great fashions that fall brings, I’m a complete and total SUMMER GIRL! Nevertheless, I do embrace the fall season as the perfect opportunity to regroup and refresh my wardrobe. I encourage you to do the same!

Use this season to re-imagine your wardrobe and give yourself a mini FASHION MAKEOVER! And before you start sighing and complaining about not knowing how to do that, the best piece of advice I can give you is SIMPLIFY. Don’t over-complicate this. Find a few great pieces that are comfortable (not to be confused with frumpy) and eye-catching and incorporate them into what you already have. Here are a few other simple ways to spruce things up this fall:

  • By a vibrant colored fall/winter coat. It’s a great way to brighten up dreary winter days.
  • A military jacket adds an instant “cool girl” factor.
  • Add printed cardigans to simple outfits to add a little spark!
  • Don’t forget your nails. Find cool colors for fall.
Easy fall spruce up!

Be fabYOUlous!!!

Gray is Good!

One of spring’s hottest nail colors is GRAY! Not gun metal gray but nice, soft, springy gray! At first mention, it may sound a little drab but try it! The color looks great on just about everybody and matches with everything. πŸ™‚ Nails are such a small part of our bodies but they can make a big difference. Go gray!!!

Feeling a little….Guilty?!?

As I was walking the floor at Nordstrom this morning I stopped by the cosmetics department to check things out. On display there was Gucci Guilty for Her. Lovely fragrance!!!! Next time you’re in the store please stop and check it out!!! You may not be able to afford a Gucci handbag but perhaps you can afford a Gucci fragrance.Β Remember gals…a lady should ALWAYS smell nice!!! πŸ˜‰

Shecky’s Girls Night Out DC!

Last night a few chicas and I had the pleasure of attending Shecky’s Girls Night Out! And oh what a fun night we had!!! This was my first time attending the event and I’m so glad I went. There were great vendors, music, food tastings, free cocktails, giveaways, and the always fabulous (so I’ve heard) GOODIE BAG! And you all know we looooooooooooooooove FREE stuff! The goodie bag included so many of the things girls love – lip gloss, sweet smelling shower gel (full size), chocolate….dark chocolate (Mmmmmmmmmm!), The Body Shop fragrance samples, lotion, a cute little carrying case for our “girlie products” for that once a month “thingy”, and so much more!!! We ate Southern Girl cupcakes…AND Georgetown Cupcakes, saw great jewelry pieces, cool clothing items, played in makeup, and even visited an interesting table full of “toys”. πŸ˜‰

If you haven’t been to Shecky’s you owe it to yourself to go. The good thing is that Shecky’s takes this wonderful display of fabulousness on the road to just about all of the major cities! So gather some of your girlfriends and go have a blast!!! πŸ™‚

LOL...we LOVE this!

Lotion that Lasts!

I love shopping for new beauty products! Whether it’s new makeup, nail polish, facial cream, or deodorant, I love trying new things in hopes of finding something great to share with you! In my latest quest, I decided to try St. Ives Restoring 24 hour Moisture lotion. The verdict: LOVE IT!!!! Works very well, lasts all day, and keeps the skin feeling smooth and silky. I love it so much that I also purchased 3 different kinds of St. Ives face washes during my next trip to the store. For years my mom has used St. Ives products, while I opted for so many others. I guess this is yet another situation where I’m becoming more like my mother! Scary!!! πŸ™‚
