Sydney: Bra Fit, Try On, and Style Session

Plunge Push Up Bra & The Five Way Convertible Bra

Hey Loves! Back again and this time we are discussing, trying on and having a styling session with SYDNEY!

A new plus size lingerie brand that scours the globe to discover the most unique, size inclusive lingerie — from bralettes and bodysuits to naughty knickers and other goodies — that will elevate your every day (and every night).

Ready to dive in? Great – let’s start with the Plunge Push Up Bra! This red beauty has a gorgeous lace overlay detail that just elevates this bra from not only functional but down right sexy! With this particular bra you’ll want to order two cup sizes down as it tends to run two sizes larger. I’m normally a 42DD so instead I ordered a 42C and it fit phenomenal! The band didn’t dig in and was comfortable, plus was large enough that my fat roll wasn’t fighting it which meant no pinching or squeezing!

Next we have the five in one convertible bra! First I tried this baby as a strapless bra and I have to say the support and lift it provided without the straps was great! I will say that the band was a little snug and I probably would have ordered a size up just for a little more comfortable fit. I loved that this also came with the clear straps – even more styling options with these!

Hope you Loves enjoyed this session with SYDNEY!!

Quarantine Quality Time: How To Do Gel Nails From Home

With all of us being stuck inside and unable to pamper ourselves the ways we normally would, I decided to treat myself in a unique way… I taught myself a new skill: salon worthy gel nails! Now I’m going to share what I learned with you all so if you decide you need a nail salon day you can throw one together in the comfort of your own home.

First off your gonna need supplies: UV light, cuticle pusher, nail clippers, buff nail file and 80-100 nail file (coarse ones that quickly help you shape a nail), cuticle oil and cuticle remover, brush to swipe away the left over dust, acetone to remove any polish, cotton pads, rubbing alcohol, a top coat and base coat as well as your color choices. And if you decide to add tips like I’ve done you’ll need nail tips and nail glue as well. Here’s a link for the basic set up kit I found online: ” target=”_blank”>Beetles Gel Kit

First off Apply you’ll want to apply the cuticle remover onto your cuticles and rub it on. Then use the steel cuticle remover and the scraper to push down cuticles and scrape them off your nail. Use the cuticle clipper to cut off any remains. The use your nail file to make sure you’d nail bed is clean and clear.

Second step: Clip your nails to the length you want, use the nail file to shape them and then use the buffer to take a little bit off the top layer of the nail. This will help the gel polish to adhere to your nail better. This is also the step where you’d want to adhere your nail tip to the nail bed.

Step three: wash your hands with water to get rid of the excess dust – no soap. Now your ready to start the polish process!

Step four: apply a light layer of the base coat, make sure it covers entire nail surface evenly and then let sit under UV light for 120 seconds.

Step Five: apply one coat of gel polish – now I want to add this layer should be as thin as possible! It is super easy with gel to make a mess, so not like regular polish, apply lightly and evenly and set for 120 seconds under the light. If you get polish on your skin use the acetone to swipe away before putting hand under the light. The key is to avoid getting polish on your cuticles because it causes the nail polish to lift quicker! Let the polish sit under the lamp for 120 seconds, then do another layer and sit for another 120 seconds. Some lighter polish needs a 3rd layer, and if so, do a 3rd layer of polish then sit for 120 seconds

Step Six is to apply the top coat and to let it sit for 120 seconds under the lamp.

Step Seven is where you’ll use the nail file to finish shaping your nail, you’ll then need to soak a cotton pad in rubbing alcohol and rub each nail well. You’re done! Your nails will be completely dry and you can touch anything. Just love gel nails!!

Two reminders before you go:

  • You are not going to get perfect nails right away! Practice makes perfect. Be patient and let yourself learn by doing it multiple times.
  • Your nails will probably peel quickly the first few times, you are not going to be perfect at this right from the start. With practice you will be an at home gel nail pro in no time.

Until next time Loves,

Wardrobe Remix With Pretty Little Thing: White Jumpsuit Styled Three Ways

Hey Loves! Back again with a brand new wardrobe remix! In this edition of wardrobe remix I’m styling this gorgeous jumpsuit with puff sleeves from Pretty Little Thing! But first let’s talk about this gorgeous retro vibin one piece: as a petite woman (5’1) the length of the legs was waaay to much for me so I ended up having to cuff the hem, the fabric itself is comfortable with lots of give so I was never feeling like a stuffed sausage in this baby, not once was I scratching or itching because of uncomfortable fabric or liners and surprisingly the fabric was pretty lightweight so I wasn’t sweltering in it either, the plunging neckline was a blast to play with and it fit phenomenally around my middle.

Now let’s talks styling; with the plunging neckline I knew that any way I styled this look the lingerie underneath was going to show, so I did a little research and found Brassy Bra (boob tape) to create this glowing cleavage!

The first way I styled this jumpsuit was with a body chain that disappeared beneath the fabric giving that vavavoom sexy appeal I love oh so much, I added bright and colorful heels to off play so much white and a fun bright lip that matched my heels to livin up this look!

The second way I styled this look was by putting a little retro spin on it! First I adjusted the length of the sleeve and made it three quarters. I then went with a high ponytail, vintage looking cat eye bejeweled sunglasses, and a polka dot belt with the cutest bow in the back. I ended this look with a pair of edgy black and white heels, red earrings that matched my lipstick, and a vintage black hand bag.

The final way I styled this look was coordinating accessories and makeup: I used a powerful red lip that I matched my earrings, collar, sunglasses, toe nail polish, and clutch to. Clear heels kept the focus on my red accents. I also once again adjusted the sleeve length to just above the wrists on my forearm.

A few styling notes; I wanted to add that any jacket, cropped sweater/shrug, or shoulder wrap will also drastically change the look of this jumpsuit, with it being warmer weather I stuck with warmer looks this time. Also with how much room there is in the fabric of the legs of this jumpsuit it would be super easy to temporarily change the length of the legs by using fabric tape or hemming tape and changing the length of the legs to shorts or Capri length, then when done remove tape and BAM you still have your full length jumpsuit.

Until next time Loves,

Review with Brassy Bra: The Incredible Breast Tape

Intro, demo, and three quick looks with Brassy Bra

My Loves, have I got something wonderful to share with you: Brassy Bra! This fabulous boob tape works wonders for my cleavage so I had to share it with you all, you know – so you Loves can make that cleavage utterly fabulous without the aid of an underwire bra while still giving a natural look with the support of Brassy Bra.

I also want to add that I also go without a bra in public as well and there is nothing wrong with that either – it’s still gorgeous and so is your chest without the aid of undergarments.

Now, A little about Brassy Bra: they are a 97% cotton blend that breathes and moves with you, while also lifting and supporting, comes in sizes A-DDDD (European A-G), and the adhesive is heat activated by body temp which allows you the freedom to move without the adhesive coming off. Brassy Bra also offers five different skin shades for you to choose from.

If you watched the video above you’ll see application is oh so easy! First step place the pastie over the nipple area – to protect from the sticky adhesive, second step remove the bottom sticker and place to desired place on the bottom of the breast, third secure and then remove the second sticker tab and place where desired cleavage effect is perfect for you – repeat for the other side and you are all set!

Brassy Bra recommends not wearing for longer than eight hours. Other pluses include its pretty much invisible under clothing (including mesh – I tried it), it’s dance and waterproof, disposable and the kit comes with three sets! You can also customize but cutting to your specific fit although they do say that more than half an inch or an inch and it can loose it’s desired effect.

While wearing Brassy Bra I felt almost like I had on two giant bandaids but not in a bad way. There was no pulling of skin, the fabric was light weight, it made my boobs look fabulous, and movement was never an issue.

Removing was also super simple! Following the Brassy suggestion I used vegetable oil to slowly take off the adhesive and then took a hot shower. There was no pain, no redness, and besides light imprints from the adhesive pattern no visible marks left behind.

Until next time,
