Favorite New Scent

Happy Sunday guys! I had to share my favorite new scent LOVE by Sofia Vergara. I've been wearing it quite a lot lately for date nights since it's Fall and cooler during the evenings. This scent tends to linger and suits perfectly for any occasion. It's not too subtle and it smells so good! I really like it because the bottle is my favorite color and it's the cutest thing to look at along with other items on my nightstand. 
Hope you guys enjoy the rest of your weekend!

H&M Lace Midi Dress

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite dresses that I purchased at H&M in New York. I've been on a shopping binge for dresses for a while now and I love the design and fit of this dress. I wore this look for a special date night dinner with my love a few weeks ago and I am pleased to say that the quality of this dress exceeded my expectations being that it was a very inexpensive piece.

As we all love a little black dress, I think I will start a new collection of little white dresses (LWD) to my repertoire. Tell me what you think of this look in the comment box below.

Off the Shoulder Top & Skirt

We all love a good off the shoulder look, right? But is it okay to wear this trend past Summer? Of course, it is. While living in a very tropical climate and trying to maintain the coolness of it all, I find off the shoulder looks versatile, comfortable and easy to style. 

With this look, I wanted to show the sassiness of this top because it's black, sleek and has the perfect flair. I thought I'd pair it with a fitting skirt, open toe shoes and the cutest heart shaped choker ever. I added a few gold touches with my sunnies and drop earrings to pull this look togeather. With this color scheme and style, it's a great transition from Summer to Fall. 

How do you style your off the shoulder looks in the Fall?

Beauty Finds: A Month-In Review

Hi, everyone! It's been a while since I have reviewed a product or shared any products on this blog for that matter, so this particular post is long overdue. I purchased these products in New York and have heard of them for quite some time. I was in search for a good conditioner/moisturizer for my natural texture while giving it the proper shine it needs. I go through a lot of conditioners to maintain looks in and between hairstyles. So, I thought I'd give these brands a try! 

It has been a journey, searching for a natural conditioner/moisturizer with a great smell that actually works. I can't count how many hours it takes to wash, detangle and condition my hair. It's not only exhausting but also time-consuming. I realized that I need to get this hair thing under control before I do something drastic like relaxing my hair. 

After spending a bit of time deciphering which products would work best for me, I found that Curls Unleased Intense Hair Conditioner and Lavish Curls Moisturizer could fix my issues of time wasted and exhaustion. Read below to learn how each product differs and their benefits. 

Curls Unleashed Sage & Kiwi Intense Hair Conditioner 
Based on the description, Curls Unleashed Sage & Kiwi Intense Conditioner is great for added moisture, co-washing, detangling and its BPA free. After adding this conditioner to my hair for five minutes, as directed, I learned it does a pretty good job at coating my hair and detangling it. Plus it saves time when I'm in a hurry! 

However, the product itself is thick and slips due to its creamy consistency. It also softens my already soft hair while keeping the level of frizziness down. Overall, this conditioner is okay. It does detangle, soften and adds moisture to your hair as it says, but it does not differ from the other products I've used; not to mention there is a slight residue left on your hair. I wouldn't purchase this product again simply because it's pricey and it doesn't live up to its standards.  

Lavish Curls Moisturizer
I purchased the Lavish Curls Moisturizer because I wanted a product that could moisturize my hair daily. After looking at its ingredients I was excited to try something that could refresh my hair. When I used the product, I noticed it leaves a dry and flaky look. I also noticed that you can't use too much of the product. It can later leave your hair hardened and sticky, however, it works perfectly on freshly washed hair just for the day. I'm not sure if it effectively moisturized my hair, but I do know it could at least work for the one day of use. :)

I wouldn't recommend this product because it acts like a spritz instead of a nourishing hair product.

Distressed Boyfriend Jean in Autumn

Denim is quite the trend this season, from jumpsuits, baggy boyfriend jeans to the high-waisted mom jeans - there's always a way to style a pair for almost any occasion. The baggy distressed jean is a pair of denim that we all want to try. When a pair of distressed jeans look so comfy, why wouldn't we want to try them?

Or the question is, how can we wear these jeans without looking too boyish? Well, I would say the styling has everything to do with it. With this look, I thought it would be fun to add a pair of wedges while styling my Chan Luu Pearl Choker differently than expected. Adding this simple element in accesssories makes it a casual yet chic look.

Transitioning into Autumn

After the cool mornings and severe heat in the afternoon, I think Autumn is well on its way. I am over dressing for Summer and can't wait to pair my blazers and ankle high boots with my looks.

Besides Spring, Autumn is one of my favorite seasons because I can enjoy plenty of comfort foods and comfort wear. You should see my wardrobe wishlist right now! Although I'm living in a tropical climate, I tend to fall right into pulling out the boots, maxi skirts, and fedoras.

For transitioning into Autumn, here in Bermuda, I select pieces in my wardrobe from both seasons. In this look, I have one of my favorite fedora hats, a knit green crop top, and a button down maxi skirt with, of course, ankle length booties. I'm sure you know by now how much I love my hats and booties; paired with many of my Autumn looks.

Madame Tussauds #NewYork Visit

By the many travel posts I've shared in the past few weeks, I'm sure you are aware that I recently visited New York. One of the many places visited was Madame Tussauds. It's home to the new Ghostbusters Experience featuring Ghostbusters Dimensions (Reality Experience). Madame Tussauds not only offers the attraction of Ghostbusters, it's also known for the Wax Museum.

There was so much to see, touch, and enjoy. My husband and I couldn't wait to explore!

As you enter the attraction, the first person who's there to greet you is Leslie Jones (known as Patty in Ghostbusters), the wax figure that is.  From the outside of Madame Tussauds, it appears to be pretty small, with 5 levels of fun and entertainment you get to see over 200 life-like wax figures. It's definitely a museum quite unique from the others. After you have checked-in to receive your ticket, enter the elevators and get ready to take photos with the A-List celebrities.

It's amazing how identical they appear to the human eye, so we had to stop to take photos, however, I don't want to spoil the fun for those planning to visit. Here are a few of the nearly 100 photos I took.

How amazing would it be to sit in the White House with President Obama and First Lady?
Now the Ghostbusters Experience is a little haunting but isn't anything with ghosts expected to be haunting? It was also entertaining watching the Marvel 4D Film upon entering. I'm sure if you have children 8 and up, they would enjoy this attraction.

This visit was one of my favorites and has to be on your agenda for your next trip to the Big Apple.

What are the costs and hours of operation? 

For access to Madame Tussauds New York, this particular ticket includes the all-new Ghostbusters Experience and more. The online costs are $49.75.

If you are looking for the Ultimate Experience which includes a custom souvenir wax hand to take home, a fountain beverage and snack with full access to Madame Tussauds and the Marvel 4D Film, the online cost is $44.95.

Remember, prices vary and are subject to change.

Part 2: American Museum of Natural History with CityPASS

This is a review sponsored by CityPASS in partnership with NYCGO. All opinions are my own. 

If you weren't able to catch last week's blog post, you can do so here; and read Part 1 of my CityPASS adventure.

I've always enjoyed experiments, being able to observe and learn about the environment. During my trip to New York, I was able to relive my adolescent years and visit The American Museum of Natural History.  There's so much to see here from their space shows to the dinosaur exhibits, it's a must-see museum.  
The American Museum of Natural History is one of the world's most significant museums. They not only offer scientific collections, they are also known to offer educational support to help fund activities and programs within its establishment.

It's the perfect place to be when learning natural history with family, friends and fellow classmates.
Hey there, Bermuda! :)

Plan Your Visit

The American Museum of Natural History is open daily (10am - 5:45pm) except on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. With CityPASS, your admission to the museum is included with the total fee as well as the Rose Center for Earth and Space; plus the Space Show or a giant screen film in 3D.

I would recommend going to one of the 3D or 2D screen films. They are absolutely amazing visually and you will learn so much in just 30 mins.

If you are interested in CityPASSes, they are available in the following cities:

San Francisco
Southern California
Tampa Bay

Note: NYC CityPASS was given to me to review, however, the opinions in this post are my own.
