Shopping With A Stylist @Macy's

polk dot sweater
Ready to get my shopping on!
It's no secret I'm a big time shopper, OK so maybe a little too much shopping is done at times. When you get invited to shop with a fashion stylist at one of your favorite stores, how could you say NO!   About a week ago my friend and plus size stylist/fashion expert Reah Norman hosted a shopping day at Macy's in Brea Mall.   I had to be there to support my friend Reah, and hello it was held at my local Macy's which has pretty good plus size department, this was a must do!

When I arrived the DJ was spinning an music bumping away.  I spotted all the models who had been styled by Reah.  It was an awesome sight to see many beautiful, stylish curvy plus size shoppers.  I said hi to Reah, and headed toward my favorite brands, INC, American Rag and Jessica Simpson.  The racks were full of all the latest fall styles and sale/discount signs to match.  Along with the music, models and sales, there were also treats being passed around.  It was plus size shopping heaven!   I grabbed a few pieces to try on and headed to the dressing room.  It was a win for me, both of items fit, were on sale and I was able to use an extra 20% off coupon!  SCORE!! 

The lovely Reah Norman, styled to perfection. 
I also got to chat with blogger Janae from Naturally Curly Kinky, she's a sweetheart.
You can check out her recap here.
Chunky knit sweater and faux moto jacket I scored from Macy's.
 My face doesn't show it, but I was excited!
I didn't really get a full outfit picture, was too busy shopping and mingling. Wore two of my new favorite clothing items, polka dot sweater from HM+ and leggings from Matty M.  I have been on a cozy sweater kick lately, can't get enough! Here a little video as well of my shopping adventure with Reah at Macy's.

Be Red Carpet Ready Everyday With Divina Latina!

*This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Unilever and Latina Bloggers Connect.*

Being Red Carpet Ready and always looking your best isn't easy.  We all have those day when all you want to do is put on sweats, a tee, head out with no make up and big pair of sunglasses.  Some days that's fine, but being a fashion blogger that doesn't always work.  I do feel pressure at times to always look my best, you never know whose watching!  Ha Ha Ha

Does it sound silly?  Maybe I am silly, but there is nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel your best always.  Well with the help of CVS and Divina Latina, I can look fab every day.  We all need a little help with hair, makeup and skin care to look like a Red Carpet Diva.  CVS has all the products you need to make you look like a Divina Latina.  I especially need tons of help with my hair, making sure it's not a big frizzy hot mess.  Since my hair is so curly, it tends to frizz and can be difficult manage.  I like using products with Keratin, like TRESemme Keratin Smooth, Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum, helps eliminate frizz, while giving you shine.  Curly hair also tends to dry out and look dull. With TRESemme Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum I get a two in one solution for frizziness and dullness.  

Shopping for all the Divina Latina products at CVS with my ExtraBucks Rewards
Along with having dry hair, I tend to also have dry skin in the fall/winter months.  No one looks cute with dry skin, it also wrinkles easier. Thank goodness for Pond's Rejuveness Cream Contra Arrugas (Anti-Wrinkle) which helps firm and visibly reduce the appearance of aging.  From my hair to my face and beyond all these products are life savers and can purchased at CVS using their BeautyClub and earning ExtraBucks.  It's so easy to use, all you do is sign up, get your ExtraBucks reward card and every $50 spent on beauty products at CVS/Pharmacy gets you $5 ExtraBucks.  These are all products we use everyday, why not get rewarded for buying them.  If you haven't signed up yet, just head to your local CVS Pharmacy.

Better Than Black Friday Sales

Well it's time for one of my favorite times of the year.  Not only do we get to stuff our faces with yummy food for Thanksgiving, but the holiday shopping officially begins.  So if your not the type to head over to your local mall at midnight after your Turkey dinner for black Friday shopping.  Check out some local warehouse and sample sales in Southern California.  I love a good sample/warehouse sale, they can be hit or miss and sometimes you may wait hours in line to get in. If your patient and are not afraid to get a little dirty digging through racks or boxes of items,  you can find some really great deals. I love the thrill of finding a great fashion bargain!!!

So if your in the Southern California area check out this sales going on this weekend and for the rest of the holiday season.

Happy Shopping!

Tips for Luminous Skin with #MujerDove

*Sponsored post*
This month I have been working with Dove ClearTone on a campaign along with 20 other Latina Bloggers.  If you have read my previous post you may know that Dove has a new deodorant/anti-perspirant called ClearTone Pink/Rose designed to help renew you skin.  Many women suffer from dryness or irritation when shaving their underarms, Dove ClearTone can help reducing redness and dark marks.  Dove wants to help you have luminous skin from head to toe and even on your underarms.  A couple weeks ago Dove had a twitter party, which I hope you were a part of, where we shared our own tips to help keep our skin looking our best.  Many shared great homemade treatments to common skin issues such as dryness, dull skin and irritation.  Here are some of the tips shared that were most commonly referenced.

Hydration: Staying hydrated and drinking plenty of water was a big tip most woman gave during the twitter party. Drinking lots of water will help your skin stay hydrated and prevent it from drying out as well giving you a healthy glow.

Exfoliation: Exfoliating is also important when it comes to getting healthy luminous skin. Many bloggers shared their recipes for homemade scrubs, using common kitchen ingredients like sugar, honey, olive and coconut oil. Using a scrub can help remove dead skin and give you smoother and softer skin, even under your arms. I never thought to use a scrub on my under arms, but makes total sense.

Moisturizing: It's almost a no brain-er, yet not everyone moisturizes daily. Using a lotion or cream daily will helps keep your skin soft and luminous. Drinking water help keep your skin hydrated from the inside, so think of moisturizing as keeping your skin hydrated from the outside. It's also a good idea to add a sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

What are some of your tips to keeping your skin healthy and luminous? 
Please leave me a comment and share your secrets!

Don't forget to also enter the Dove giveaway which ends tonight at midnight. Three winner will be selected to win a years supply of Dove products and a $100 Rent The Runway gift card.  Don't miss out, enter HERE

Do You Worry About Being "The Stinky One"

*Sponsored Post*
For some odd reason when ever I am out in public and smell some bad B.O, I check to make sure its not me!  I am always paranoid about being the stinky person, and forgetting to put on deodorant.  That's always a fear of mine, having bad body odor, is that weird?  Well thank goodness for Dove ClearTone Deodorant, I am covered and don't have to worry about being "the stinky one." I love the scent with calendula and sunflower seed extracts, the scent is subtle not overwhelming and fresh. I never have to worry about smelling bad with the 48 hour protection. Dove ClearTone Anti-Perpirant/Deodorant is designed to reduce red and dark marks and even skin tone resulting from shaving irritation. After using Dove ClearTone for a week my underarm skin feels much smoother and soft.  I don't often wear sleeveless shirts or dresses but that doesn't mean my underarms shouldn't be fabulous and have luminous skin. If you suffer from underarm irritation as a result of shaving you're among the 32 million women in the U.S. who have experienced this.  Shaving can cause underarm skin to lose 50% more moisture and lead to dryness and irritation. Dove Clear Tone Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant is an "over the counter" remedy, specifically formulated with Calendula and Sunflower Seed Extracts. It’s designed to reduce red and dark marks and even skin tone.   If your suffering from underarm skin irritation or problem with B.O. you must try the New Dove ClearTone Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant.  It's a definitely must have beauty item for all woman.  

Dove wants to make sure you never go with out deodorant and have fabulous luminous skin. Below you can enter the amazing giveaway, 3 winners will selected. Just leave me a comment with your tip for luminous skin.  Additional entries available, make sure to like CidStyleFile on Facebook!

Good Luck to you all and hope one of my readers wins this fabulous prize!  Please read the terms and conditions before you enter.
