Physicians Formula Instant Lash Extensions Eye Booster; Review and First Impression

So, I had received so many wonderful products from the simply stylist event in NY that I felt like I HAD to do some reviews! This is my very first time vlogging, and it was really a challenge. I give credit to all the beauty vloggers out there that make this seem so natural and easy. Hopefully it gets better. 
 I chose to do a review on the Physicians Formula Instant Lash Extension Kit for my first vlog. This kit comes with two tubes of product and one of them is a great black mascara and the second is a tube of leaf extension fibers. This mascara is paraben free, gluten free, hypoallergenic, dermatologist approved, and ophthalmologist tested. The price ranges from $10-15, depending on where you buy it. Physicians Formula is cruelty free, too! 
I enjoyed this product and it definitely gave me great lashes, if you like Younique 3d fiber lashes, this is very similar but less expensive. In my opinion, this looks a bit better, the Younique product looks too clumpy for my taste. 

Let me know if you guys would be interested in a giveaway for this product!

What I Wore: Bohemian Florals and Leather

      As much as I love doing this, I really hate the cold, so I am pretty excited about our move to Virginia where I can at least escape a few degrees and maybe some feet of snow! We are in the midst of trying to find a place to live down there, and it is proving to be more difficult than I thought. Other than that, the other thing that is new: me vlogging! I am giving it a go, but I have always hated my voice on camera. I come off as either a 10 year old or a valley chick. But I have so many products that I received in my goody bag from simply stylist that if i don't do some reviews it would be nuts! Giveaways to follow... (I have doubles of every product I would be reviewing, so they are all brand new, boxed, and unused, pretty obvious but thought I would mention it)
       The dress I am wearing is from last fall, but the same brand. They do a lot of these bohemian types of looks and the one I linked would look equally nice under a sweater.  The cream sweater I sized up on because I wanted a looser fit.
Check this look out on Befitted and don't forget to vote for your faves!

The Simply Stylist Conference NYC

      So this past Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the Simply Stylist Conference in New York. On top of hearing some truly inspiring speakers and a seriously decadent gift bag, I got to meet some really great people. Our day started at 10 am at the W hotel on Lexington with a lovely brunch decorated with beautiful floral arrangements of pink shades and goodies from Library of Flowers(which smell fabulously girly, luxurious and floral).
     After wards, we headed into the conference room and had the opportunity to hear some wonderful speakers, and even were able to ask questions. The highlights for me, were June Ambrose and Dan Carlberg. While the other speakers were great and equally inspirational, June is a legend in the styling world and has been around for a while and Dan founded Bloglovin when he was 18... That is pretty amazing! On top of that, he seems like a lot of fun and really down to earth. This lasted for quite a while, and towards the end it was the last thing I wanted to do.
     For the last few hours I wandered around to the different stations and mingled with various bloggers and brands. They had a hair,nails, and makeup station to get your touch ups done. They had drinks and appetizers. They had Lily Qian doing fashion illustrations. It was a good time and I look forward to attending next year!
    The gift bags for the 'VIP' group was supposedly worth close to $1000. It had a Trina Turk $128 floral scarf in it and a voucher for a $200 pair of shoes.. I mean, hello? Along with these luxuries it also had a ton of beauty items such as mascara, perfumes, face creams, and a whole lot more. Check out some of my photos:

                                                                      What I Wore!
The 'skirt' is actually a dress from Express. I wore it with this turtleneck that I belted. I wore my Giuseppe Zanotti boots and vintage Chanel camera bag with this because New York. duh.

                                                                      Get the look:

What I Wore: Fuzzy Jacket and Flares

These little fuzzy jackets are quite popular now. They are a hybrid between faux fur and shearling, and they are super comfy. Luckily, I found this one in the depths of my closet from years ago. I can't tell you how many times that happens! I tell everyone, don't get rid of your clothes if you have the space to store it, because trends always come back around.

                                                                  Thanks for reading!

The Different Ways To Wear a Poncho

     Poncho, cape, wrap, call it what you will. There is no denying it is the season's hottest layering piece. It's completely versatile for day, night, casual, formal, and travel attire. You can take it off and put it on easier than a sweater and in some cases a cardigan, and it adds so much more to an outfit with cool prints and fringe. I can vouch for the ease during travel since it's all I wore for the plane trips and road tripping we did in Spain and France. Also, like I said earlier, it is very versatile and can be worn lots of different ways. To throw some inspiration your way, I put together a few different looks to try with these guys!

poncho look 1

Poncho Look 2

These are two pretty wildly different looks, and there are many in between, too. You can make the poncho work for business, brunch, and lounging at home. To give it some shape you can also try belting it.
Give this new trend a go, I don't think you will be disappointed.
