PROS

  • Lifts and separates
  • Supportive
  • Creates two boobs
  • Stays in place
  • Ventilation
  • Comfortable
  • Sexy
  • Cute Details
  • Nice Color

CONS

  • Clasp in back instead of front sides
  • Difficult to get on and off – more difficult than a t shirt
  • Too much padding for my taste – too much cleavage
  • Boobs stick up and out instead of pushed down against your chest

I was delighted to receive my Victoria’s Secret Sport Bra in the mail. Being a fan of the quality and size selection of Victoria’s Secret I was excited to try their new Sport Bra design.

VS Sport Bra Gray

VS Sport Bra Gray Color 32B

The new line of sport bras from Victoria’s Secret comes in a range of sizes small and large.  I was shipped my correct size 32B. The bra fit like a glove and was also quite sexy. The bra works very hard to lift, separate and push those babies out. This bra makes my boobs look fantastic; so what’s the problem?

The problem is that I am not at the gym to show off my boobs – I am at the gym to work out. I prefer a sport bra that smashes my boobs to my chest so those boulders are not in the way. The Victoria’s Secret Sport Bra feels cumbersome. The padding gets in the way when I am trying to lift weights. Also, it shows a lot of cleavage, while I am no prude, I personally don’t like showing off my cleavage when I work out. It distracts me okay – I can’t stop looking at my cleavage! If I was going to the gym to pick up guys, I would definitely wear the Victoria’s Secret Sports Bra! I am not being factious, I would actually wear this bra to pick up guys at the guy if I needed to – no shame in that. There is very light but not removable padding throughout the cups. I would feel a little better in this bra if I could take the padding out and not look like Pamela Anderson when I am working out. On second thought, I might wear this bra on my next date.

The second drawback is the clip in the back. The clasp has a small bit of padding, but if I am doing an exercise where I am laying on my back and sliding around ;), the bra can dig into my back or come unclipped.  For example, shrimping in jujitsu – You would’t want to wear this bra for jujitsu.  When I do exercises on the ball my bra clasp always gets me – EVERY TIME.  I do a lot of ball exercise and I don’t want a bra with a back clip.  I wish the clips were at the side of the sport bra where my ribs are located.

Sport Bra Clasp

Padding on Back of Clasp for Comfort

Despite a couple of drawbacks, this Sport Bra is very well made, extremely comfortable, supports your breasts and makes your boobs look amazing. It is definitely a feminine Sport Bra that I think would make any woman feel sexy and amazing with just their Sport Bra on.

If I ever have to be caught with just a Sport Bra on I would definitely pick the Victoria’s Secret Sport Bra because it is so gorgeous. The bra is true to their brand – flirty, sexy and feminine.

– I didn’t test this bra running. Since I don’t run anymore I am not going to test the bra running, but when I was a runner obviously support was very important. Support while running is much different than any other activity. Did anyone test their VS Sport Bra while running?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie Outfit

Orange Bow

Orange Bow

I was so excited to see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie that came out this weekend.  As a kid I was a huge TMNT fan.  I was very girly and into all the princesses and girly stuff, but I LOVED the Ninja Turtles.  I was a ninja turtle through most of my childhood and the Teenage Turtles will always have a very special place in my heart.

My favorite Ninja Turtle was always Michelangelo, the orange Ninja Turtle.  He was fun, sweet and easy going.  I feel like I am a pretty easy going person so that is why I always related to Michelangelo.

For my ninja turtle look I wore green and aqua eye shadow.  The color looks a bit blue on camera but it was green I promise.  I also wore a orange bow in my hair to represent Michalangelo’s signature color.   To make the bow, I got some ribbon from Joanne’s Fabric and just tied a regular bow.  I secured the bow to my hair with a couple of bobby pins.

For my nails, I painted a neon, bright green and added the four colors of turtle masks to represent Michelangelo (orange – the fun, funny one), Leonardo (blue – the leader, responsible one), Donatello (purple – the smart one) and Raphael (red – the bad ass, naughty, rule breaker one).

The green Ninja Turtle Dress was purchased off of Amazon.  I paired the dress with leggings because I was going to an evening movie and I always get chilly in the movie theater.  Also, the dress is a bit short.  This dress is a size small.  The dress runs a bit small because the image doesn’t stretch so definitely size up if you have a larger chest.

First Aid Shot Therapy Product Review

I Keep Fast Relief in My Purse for Emergencies

 

FTC – I received First Aid Shot Therapy Product compliments of Influenster for testing and review purposes.

I was skeptical of First Aid Shot Therapy when I received the small bottle.  However, it did work to cure my headache in a pinch. I didn’t have any Tylenol or ibuprofen in my purse but I was carrying the First Aid Shot Therapy in my purse.

First Aid Shot Therapy is a single, small, liquid dose of 1.35 oz that comes in a small bottle. The active ingredients are Choline Salycilate 500mg (NSAID) also known as an anti-inflammatory and Caffeine 65mg .  Anti-immflammatories are great for relieving minor pain from menstral cramps, headaches or toothaches.  Caffeine helps to relieve headaches by absorbing the pain relieving medicine quicker getting faster relief.

First Aid Shot Therapy is great for someone that hates swallowing pills.  It’s just a liquid medicine that is easy to drink and the berry flavor doesn’t taste bad.

I would recommend this product to anyone that doesn’t like to swallow pills, such as teens, elderly, or someone who is not accosomed to taking medicine.  Since this product does work quickly, it is great to keep on hand when you have a headache and need relief quickly.

You can purchase Fast Relief Liquid Shot Therapy on Amazon.

Princess Pink Dress Photoshoot

Closeup shot of face and hands

This year I got to do a photoshoot and I got to wear the most amazing outfit!  It was a pink tulle skirt with a pink bustier and a red belt.  I wish I could wear this dress everyday.  Unfortunately I did not get to keep the dress.

Accessories included a pink rhinestone flower necklace, lace gloves, and butterflies.

I don’t remember all of the makeup that I wore but you can see that my tight line was lined with black eyeliner and it really shows up in the closeup shot of my face.

Princess Tulle Bubble Skirt for $11

Mint Green Tulle Bubble Skirt

Bubble Skirt in Mint Green

How to get a tulle tutu bubble skirt from ebay.  I love how whimsical and princessy tulle skirts and dress are to wear.  I wanted a short tulle skirt for myself.  I had previously bought a black tulle skirt from ebay, however, it only had two layers of tulle, and was not very fluffy.
Recently I bought a tea length tulle skirt and it has 5 or 6 layers of tulle.  That is a lot of tulle.  I didn’t want my skirt to be tea length, but I wanted the skirt to be short.  I pinned the tulle up underneath itself to create a very fluffy, bubble tulle skirt.  In this pictured, the skirt is paired with a peach colored crop top.  However, I think I would pair the skirt with a white tank top and a belt.  The skirt I bought comes in a variety of colors.

Both the tulle skirts I bout were under $11 and were great quality for the price I paid.  There were not holes in the tulle or in the seams.  I would  recommend a buying a tulle skirt on ebay if you ever want one .

Sally Hansen #CSMTKO Complete Salon Manicure

Image

I tried out all three colors from my Influenster Sally Hansen Vox Box.  The three colors I received were

  1. Pat on the Black – a deep, dark purple that reminded me off purple Skittles when I wore it.
  2. Red My Lips – a pretty, bright red that reminded me of a red Starbursts –  So far Yummy!
  3. Jaded – a seafoam color

My favorite color was Red My Lips since it is a really pretty red that went well with my skin tone.  It was also opaque and I only needed one coat.

The great thing about the Sally Hansen® Complete Salon Manicure is that you do not need a base coat or a top coat.  This saves a lot of drying time and means I can change my nail color in a jiffy.  When I took the polish off it did not stain my nails yellow either.  I would defiantly recommend the Sally Hansen® Complete Salon Manicure and am looking forward to trying more colors.

Influenster VoxBox Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

I received my January 2014 Sally Hansen VoxBox in the mail and of course I was excited to get three new colors of nail polish.

The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is suppose to have seven benefits in one bottle.  These benefits include

  • Base Coat
  • Strengthener
  • Growth Treatment
  • Color
  • Top Coat
  • Chip-Resistant
  • Gel Shine

The three colors of polish I received are gorgeous.  The first is a dark purple called Pat on the Black.  The second polish color is Bright Red and called Red My Lips.  The third polish color is a sea foam green and is called Jaded.

I was doubtful about using a polish without a base coat or a top coat, but I went ahead and applied the polish as directed.  I applied the dark purple polish called Pat on the Back.  The polish went on wonderfully.  It was smooth and opaque.  I put on a very thin bottom coat and then another very thin second coat and it coated my nails just fine.  The color was pretty and reminded me of purple Skittles!  It didn’t take long for the polish to dry since I didn’t need to bother with a base and top coat.

pat on the black

Despite the beautiful color, the polish did not perform well on my nails. My first impression was that the polish was not high shine.  Usually a top coat gives polish a brilliant shine to the polish, but the polish looked dull.  High shine is not that big of a deal to me, especially with how popular matte polish is right now.  What is important to me is a long lasting manicure.  At the end of the first day a little polish flaked off on the tip of one nail.  On the second day the polish flaked off on the tip of a couple more nails.  By the fourth day it was time to change the manicure.    I am not hard on my nails.  I always wear gloves when I do housework and I type at a computer most the day.

Overall the polish is pretty, fast drying and did not turn my nails yellow. It would be a good polish for an evening out or to last one day to match an outfit. I wouldn’t expect this polish to last more than a couple of days.

I will try the other colors and review more.

Best Hair Day Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Hair Rough Rubber Paste

Side view of girl with messy bun

I tried The Schwarzkopf Professional Osis Rough Rubber Paste on my hair to tame flyaways when I put my hair up in a messy bun. The product comes in a round, red jar and has the consistency between gak and play-do. The product smells clean and a little bit like soap. I usually don’t use any sort of pomade on my hair but I still wanted to give it a try. I put a little bit on my fingers and rubbed it through the top of my hair to give it a pompador. I then decided against the pomp for my hair and brushed my hair back down and it still retained its shape and a little body with no flyaways. I then took some more rough rubber and rubbed it on the side of my head to get rid of flyaways next to my ears. Lastly I took a bit more rough rubber I rubbed it on the back of head near my neck and bobby pinned up any loose hairs.

Rough rubber opened

The rough rubber really helped my hair retain its shape while still looking natural. It didn’t feel crunchy or oily either. It gave the front of my hair the lift I wanted so it wasn’t cemented to my scalp and tamed any flyaways. I would have never have picked up this product on my own but now that I have it I think I will be using it any time I put my hair up which is 4 or 5 times a week.

imPRESS Press on Manicure Review

Image

I was excited to get these nails in the mail.   I received nails with a tie dye looking print in blue and purple tones.  The nails come in hard plastic case shaped like a bottle of nail polish and you get 24 nails total.  I thought the packaging was a little excessive.

First I fit the artificial nails to my real nail then peal of the backing and press firmly for a few seconds.  The nails seem firmly attached and look great.  I decided not to file them just out of laziness.  The nails are not crazy long which I like, but I am having a little trouble typing.  How do people type all day and type quickly with long nails?

I am just not sure how these nails will hold up to my constant hand washing.  I wash my hands A LOT.   I go through a lot of hand soap too.  The nails are suppose to last a week.  I have two backup nails in case one falls off early.  I will report back after I have worn the nails for a few days.

Makeup Wish List – Things I Want to Try

bright pink lip print art

My makeup wish list is always longer than the time and budget I have to purchase the makeup. I put together a wish list of things I will be trying in the future – hopefully sooner rather than later.

1) Baby Lips – Lip Balm by Maybelline – I want to get this in Pink Wink or Pink Punch. Pink Wink is limited addition. It is suppose to be a moisturizing lip balm with a punch of color.

2) OCC Lip Tar –  I’m not sure what color I want yet, I plan on trying it on before I buy but I like the  Digitalis (Pale Lavender), Narcissus (Lavender-Toned Pink), and Femme (True Baby Pink).  Lip Tar is suppose to be long lasting and pretty.

3) Maybelline Rocket Mascara – This is the new Maybelline mascara.  I’ve worn Maybelline for a long time and it is the mascara I swear by.

4) Cover Girl Natural Lash Clear Mascara – for my eyebrows

5) Essie Cab-ana Nail Color – I want a bright aqua or turquoise nail color for summer and the Cab-ana looks really pretty.
