Guys, something amazing happened!  The day I wore this outfit I had tacos for lunch that I consumed in my car.  What I was thinking, I have no idea.  I didn’t even spill on my white jeans, though!  It was a miracle!

Teal Memories

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Recipe Style:

From Beauty Darling

It was love at first sight when I saw today’s inspiration photo.  I wanted to recreate the look but didn’t have a white shirt with the right neckline for a long necklace.  Instead, I opted for this brown top, kept the bootcut jeans and teal accessories, and added sandals and a fun teal bag.  Overall, I’m loving the look!

My Style:

Blushing Blush

Milani Baked Blush

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, let’s talk blushing. Not the embarrassing kind but the makeup kind. Blushes are a dime a dozen these days. Chances are if you pick up a blush at the drugstore it’s not going to be a complete dud. Good blushes are harder to find and even harder to identify in the sea of blushes. Don’t despair, though, I’ve got you covered.

These baked blushes from Milani were on sale at my mom’s local Wal-Mart. Being the sweet lady she is, she picked up a couple for me too (thanks, Mom!). I’m so glad she did! These blushes are amazing and so pretty! They are crazy pigmented and blend out flawlessly. I’m not normally a fan of baked products as I think they are challenging to use, but these are fabulous! If you’re looking for a new blush in your life, I highly recommend this one!

What’s your favorite blush?

It’s Gonna Be Bright

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

photogrid_1529380742420940009080539961339.jpg

I love me some bright colors in the summer!  Well, maybe always, but especially in the summer.  I mean seriously, how can you be sad in bright yellow and pink?  It’s nearly impossible!  See my winter and spring looks with this color combo.  Clearly, I love being bright!

For today’s look, I paired a bright yellow top with a pink tank, a matching pink sweater, and a jean skirt.  I finished off the look with some cute metallic sandals, a pink statement necklace, and a teal purse compliments of my sweet friend Becca (thanks, Becca!).  I love the vibe that pop of the teal gives the rest of the outfit.  It’s a little boost of something special and unexpected!

What’s your favorite bright color to wear in the summer?

The Best BB Cream

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Summer is in full swing! I don’t know about you, but I’m not super fussy with my makeup in the summer. Quick and easy application is key because I want to go outside and play! BB Creams are the answer to all my foundation needs in the summer (and on any rushed morning for that matter!).

Last summer, I reviewed 5 of my favorite BB Creams (see that post here) and asked you all what your favorites were. I got the best recommendation from my lovely friend Sue over at Wine Wows! from Sue (if you need a wine rec or dinner idea, do yourself a favor and go read her blog right now!). She told me about Maybelline Dream BB Fresh.

Guys, this stuff is amazing! The coverage of this product is stellar for a BB Cream. It glides on easily using your fingers making application a breeze. As far as the color range goes they have 3 options: Light/Medium (that’s what I have), Medium, and Medium/Deep.  I find that most BB creams just blend so well into the skin that they just end up enhancing the skin’s tone, so an exact color match is not required.  Plus, since it has SPF already, you don’t need to apply an additional sunscreen!  Score!

This has quickly become my favorite BB Cream and one I’m sure to be rocking all summer long! I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t tried it yet. It’s so good!

What’s the best product recommendation that you’ve ever received?

Fab Fit Fun

Summer Box 2018

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

photogrid_15277665697273889156636926348826.jpgphotogrid_15277420874633549445860718129736.jpgIt’s FabFitFun time again!  Let’s unbox the summer box!  Buckle up, because it’s FABULOUS!!!

Summer & Rose Beach Towel: $55

photogrid_15277667008285190171285666620417.jpg

Guys!  This is the softest towel I’ve ever touched!!!  It’s so cozy and cute!  I’ve been using this non-stop since it showed up on my doorstep.  Jasmine and I love it!

ORLANDO PITA PLAY Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray: $34

photogrid_15277667694057026271338680976470.jpgThis is another item I’ve been using non-stop since the box arrived.  It’s a weightless spray that protects hair from UV damage and heat styling.  My hair is very oily and this doesn’t weigh it down AT ALL.  It’s a great product.

Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator: $29

photogrid_15277666230403514103139531907339.jpgThis is a fabulous gentle exfoliator!  I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks or so now.  I’m not sure about the brightening effects, but it certainly leaves my skin feeling smooth!

Jaboneria Marianella Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar: $48

photogrid_15277669543937796154563952106568.jpgThis is one luxurious body treatment!  It has all natural ingredients that exfoliate and hydrate the skin.  I love using it but it does have a scent to it.  Think of any gift store that has all the candles and that’s what it smells like.  It’s not terrible, by any means, though.  This is a lovely product that feels so great on the skin!

tarte tarteist PRO glow highlight & contour palette: $45

photogrid_15277672026328996711796098840177.jpgThis is GORGEOUS!!!  We all know I’m overly frugal and don’t often (or ever) spring for a high-end makeup product.  Having the chance to try this out was awesome!  Let me tell you, this is a beautiful highlighting palette.  This would work well for any skin tone and any look you may want to achieve.  Could this be my gateway to higher-end makeup?  We’ll see.

tarte tarteist PRO to go palette & sex kitten liquid liner: $43

photogrid_152776713028797619841928160721.jpgYou were supposed to pick between this product and the highlighting palette above OR you could add the second palette for $10.  Only $10?  Yes, please!  This eyeshadow palette is gorgeous!  The formula is so creamy and blends out really well.  I wish there was a lighter shade for a highlight, but I just use one of the colors from the highlight palette.  This is a great palette to travel with as it’s so small and compact.  I took both these palettes on a recent trip and was very happy with the number of looks I could create with such a small, travel-friendly palette!  Also included was a liquid liner.  I’ve never used a liquid liner before, so I need some more practice with this product.  Overall, these palettes are fabulous!

COOLA Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer: $32

photogrid_15277667334361728794698166259043.jpgWho doesn’t need a sunscreen in the summer?  I love they included this product in the box.  I’m lazy and don’t always buy a sunscreen just for my face.  When I don’t use an SPF made for the face, though, I end up breaking out.  Luckily, FabFitFun to the rescue!  I haven’t used this yet, but I’m excited to try it out!

Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish: $14.99

photogrid_15277668053164292124497967186167.jpgThis is the product I didn’t know I needed.  At first, I thought it was silly, but I set it next to the sink anyway.  I’ve been using it non-stop, though.  Need to wash some dishes and don’t want to get your jewelry wet?  Cool, just put it in the tray!  Genius!

FOREO LUNA fofo: $89

photogrid_15277670032414441090077879124440.jpgGet excited about this exclusive launch product!  According to the FabFitFun insert, it’s a “revolutionary device…powered by Bluetook technology and advanced skin sensors to create a totally personalized profile, which is sent straight to the newly launched FOREO LUNA app.”  Now, that’s a high-tech beauty product!  Check out this video from Jen Luvs Reviews to get an idea of how to use it.  So far, I really like it.  Once you download the app, it guides you through how to use it.  Basically, it analyzes your skin condition and moisture level and then you can use the device to cleanse your face.  It leaves your skin feeling so smooth and clean.  It’s fabulous, maybe not $90 fabulous, but if you got this in your box, do yourself a favor and use it right now!

Total Value: $389.99 for $50!!!

This just might be my favorite box yet!  I’m using everything in this box.  If you haven’t tried out FabFitFun yet use my code to get $10 off your first box!  You’ll LOVE it!

That’s all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  See you guys in my next post!

This past weekend, the hubby and I went to dinner with some of our dear friends. Once again, it was so HOT! Not to worry, though, I had plenty of hot weather date night options I couldn’t wait to wear! I wasn’t feeling overly creative, so I opted for a tank top maxi dress. The great thing about throwing on a dress is that I could spend more time accessorizing. Now we’re talking! These tassel earrings from the FabFitFun Spring Box had to make an appearance along with some gold and black bracelets. I’m quite loving this look for double date night!

How’s the weather where you are?  It’s getting HOT here.  I find dressing for the hot weather and the office very challenging.  I want to wear shorts and a tank top, but that’s not going to work.  Often times, I opt for capris, a tank, and a sweater.  Today is no different.  This outfit uniform makes it super simple to slip on the sweater as you’re going into work and take it off when you leave.  It’s the perfect way to balance the hot weather outside and the cool a/c inside.

What’s your hot weather work uniform?

Boho Red

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

I love me some red! That wasn’t always the case, though. One day my grandma told me that all blond haired girls should have one red shirt. So, I tried one on and I was hooked!

Recipe Style:

Today’s inspiration pic spoke to me with that bold red top. The look is so summery and simple. I couldn’t wait to recreate it!

My Style:

For the restyle, I opted for this red, boho top. Boho isn’t my go-to style choice, but it’s good to switch things up from time to time. I paired the top with my Levi’s pull on jeans from Wal-Mart (see post here). These are so comfy and stylish! You need these jeans in your life! I finished off the look with some cute sandals and silver and pearl jewelry. I’m really loving this outfit. It’s season appropriate (especially for these hot days), stylish, and best of all comfy! Style and comfort? We really can have it all!

Do you wear boho style clothes?

That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by! See you guys in my next post!
