Today’s #FancyHairFriday tutorial has been a very requested one. It’s my everyday curls using a curling iron versus a curling wand. I also did a day 2 follow up to show you how it looks on day 2 and how to revive it a bit. Watch the video and feel free to leave questions, concerns or comments below and I will gladly respond back.
The difference between my spring wardrobe last year to this year is HUGE! (Quick side note, I can’t say the word “huge” without thinking of Jimmy Fallon impersonating Donald Trump. Anyone else?)lol… Now back to my look. Last spring, I was all about the pastels, nudes, pinks and everything super light and airy. This year on the other hand, is all about bold colors & print for me. Anything and everything bright is coming home with me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all I want to wear, but it’s definitely something I’m reaching for a lot more this time of year versus last year. I’m also digging a lot of stripes, floral prints (like this jumpsuit), denim on denim, white, blush and embroidered things (like this dress), but for example, this look would have never been worn until a few weeks prior to summer. I guess I’m in a happy, bubbly and bright place in my life at this moment. Another spring MUST HAVE are these gorgeous wedges. They are so comfortable and the platform height is just right! I got these last year, wore them a ton, and I couldn’t wait to take them out for a spin this year. I have literally worn them at least 6 times already.
Last week I mentioned on my Instastory (@afancyaffair) that I was doing some laser facial treatments at Vivid Face and received a ton of questions, so I wanted to answer some of them for you. I also had the opportunity to film the treatment because I wanted you to see how easy, simple, fast and painless the process was.
One of my new year resolutions was to care more for my skin and to be able to walk around with a fresh skin and no makeup on the daily. Years ago I would only apply lip gloss, some mascara, and call it a day and now I feel like I can’t. I have larger pores, a few marks and lots of sun spots. I want to erase some of that and dare to go bare, even though I do that from time to time, but I want to feel completely confident doing it. You know what I mean? My under eyes have increasingly gotten so dark and I look exhausted even after getting eight hours of sleep. So when the Vivid Face team reached out to me to see if I wanted to try their laser treatments, I was like, “umm, heck no”. In my mind, I was like “ain’t nobody got time to stay at home hiding from everyone with my skin peeling for days”. But then they told me it was a 15 minute procedure with no down time and my answer quickly changed to, “heck yeah!”. I have very sensitive skin and with the opening of my new boutique, I don’t have any downtime to stay home and allow my face to heal.
Vivid Face has a huge variety of procedures offered at their office and all supervised by doctors. They use combined advanced medical technology with innovative skin care treatment to deliver powerful results. The Vivid Facial treatment, which is what I did, can show results after the second treatment. However, I noticed some changes after just the first treatment and I can’t wait to go back.
If you want to erase a few years and give this treatment a try, the Vivid Face team sent the following discount code: VFA222. This offers you 50% off the first package of 3 Vivid Treatments.
Once I finish the 3 treatments I will make sure to update this post with before and after photos.
Today’s #FancyHairFriday tutorial has been a very requested one. I feel silly for saying this all the time, but really, this one is super easy. Watch the video and feel free to leave questions, concerns or comments below and I will gladly respond back.
Last night Michael and I decided to have an impromptu date night. We left Fancy P at home and went out. To our surprise, the evening was so beautiful, with just the right amount of sun peeking through, that Michael decided to pull out the camera and “shoot a few pics”. Oh boy, I should have known that a few photos would totally turn out to be a full on blog photoshoot. Thankfully, I was dressed cute and wearing something I wanted to share with you guys eventually. Isn’t this strapless wide leg jumpsuit just perfect for Spring? I’m obsessed. I picked this out to sell at my boutique (Fancy Boutique) and couldn’t not get one for me. These are the perks of owning your own boutique. I always get dibs. Ha ha… I’m also so obsessed with tassel earrings, I want to wear them with everything. They are the perfect spring accessory that every trendy gal should have. What trends are you digging this season? I recently picked out this cute Henri Bendel Rivington Mini Convertible Tote that is the perfect size to fit your entire world, but small enough to be a handbag.
Now for my dear friends that always say they have a hard time shopping for chic, inexpensive and timeless accessories. Are you ready to have your mind blown and life changed forever?! Here you go, 3 words for ya, The Peach Box! They have the prettiest collection of Marc Bale watches and the sexiest collection of earrings, bangles, necklaces to match each vibe you’re going for. I’m sure you are all so tired of seeing me wearing my rose gold mesh watch, which led to me wanting to pick up a silver one, as I don’t have many silver pieces anymore and definitely noticed that I needed it. I picked up this oh so sleeksilver mesh watchand this slim and timeless knot bangle. If you’re in the market to spruce things up in your arm party and want to pick up a few timeless pieces that can be worn daily this spring, check them out and use code “AFancyAffair” at checkout to get 15% off your purchase.
The weekend is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited! LOL… Michael is home and we get to really enjoy each other a bit more.
Today’s hairstyle is a tossled look. It has a bit of curls and a bit of straight its a very bipolar look that I love. I think it looks a bit edgy and fun for spring. The key to make this look is by having the right tools and I highly recommend Bio Iconic Hair Tools. I found these at Ulta and they are amazing, because the 24K barrel and plates polishes your messy look so well. I hope you guys like this look!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I took a trip to the pool last weekend and received a ton of requests to show you what’s in my beach/pool bag. So here is its! I love to see what my friends carry in their bags too so this video was a fun one to shoot.
What do you think I should carry in my bag that I don’t now? I would love to know. Read More…
I’m obsessed with the embroidered trend! This trend is so cool and seen on everything!! From bags to denims, hats, dresses, jackets, shoes, chokers and more. They can be subtle or embellished galore, suitable to everyone’s likes and tastes. Embroidery adds a little something extra. Have a favorite go to item in your closet and wish it had a bit of embroiredery? Be artsy and purchase the iron-on patches that look like the real deal as if they were stitched on directly. I added some to a plain tee and I love the way it looks. Maybe I should share a DIY and show you how I did mine. Would you like to see that? If so, leave it on the comments below so I can work on that. Another trend and a staple in my closet for the next two seasons are espadrilles. I love them! I look forward to spring and summer to dust these guys off and take them out for a spin. This year I was looking for a simple, sleek and chic pair and found the Champ Platform Espadrille Sneakers by Andre Assous. They are soooooo comfortable and the leather is so soft. You’ve probably already seen them on my IG feed since I have been wearing them non-stop. So it was a must to come here and share a look with them. If you want to jump on the espadrilles trend, I’ve partnered up with Andre Assous to give you the opportunity to win a pair ofAndre Assous shoes of choice, enter HERE. The sweepstakes will run through the end of the month and Andre Assous will pick winners on April 1st weekend. I’m also coveting this pair and they are next on my wish list. Read More…
