Fashion Diary: Excited about MADE by Macy's

Hello again,
I hope all is well. I have a few updates that I want to stretch out into a couple posts. But the first update that I want to focus on is my Fashion Diary post. I have been handling a lot of things (not particularly well). So when I received an awesome dress from Macy's, my entire week-- really my entire month-- was MADE. I had to share my excitement about the Macy's Made 4 Impulse collection.

The collection is a result of an initiative co-founded by Jenné Lombardo, Mazdack Rassi and Keith Baptista during Macy's MADE Fashion Week. All pieces are available exclusively in 150 Macy's department stores: Macy’s Boca Raton Town Center, Broward Mall, Galleria Fort Lauderdale, City Place, Aventura, Pembroke Lakes, South Beach and Dadeland locally.

The collection is designed to encourage personal style. It references “modern school boy,” feminine grunge” and “graphics” in its interpretation of silhouettes, which include “perfect” tanks, skater skirts, and classic outerwear, as well as new looks in pants, tops and dresses. The MADE Fashion Week for Impulse collection range in price from approximately $39 to $139, which is something that I love!!

I hope you like the pics!! Many thanks to Macy's for sending over the amazing dress which I rocked the same day that I got it to the Fashion Designer Expo in Miami (I will cover that in a upcoming post).

Make sure you check out the collection, which is available online and in Macy's department stores now. 


Go Gators

I didn't get a chance to share this, but this was a piece of news that made my day to see. While I was at UF, I pretty much kept to myself and my college. So it's always kind of cool to be recognized by your undergrad school. 
The Gator Nation is every where.

Nuance By Salma Hayek

I hope all is well. I must be honest. I spent quite some time sitting over my laptop trying to conjure up the perfect linguistic ingredients to start this post off. In the end, simple honesty was the best approach. This past Thursday was a wonderful day for me solely because I was afforded a wonderful experience at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Spa in Miami to enjoy two spa treatments from the amazing products in CVS and Salma Hayek's skin care line called Nuance Salma Hayek.

Nuance was actually launched in August 2011 by CVS and Salma Hayek giving the cosmetic line time to flourish and evolve. The collection now consists of over 500 different products all catering to the everyday woman on the go who is concerned with taking care of their skin. The exclusive line has all facets of personal grooming covered. There are hair products, cosmetic and cleansing products.  One look at the natural ingredients that were on display in the spa's product room, and I was sold on the product line's effectiveness and great quality. The product room was filled with espresso beans, cucumbers, aloe and avocados to name a few.

I received a manicure and an anti-aging facial while snacking on delicious bites and catching up with a few familiar bloggers. At the end of spa treatments, everyone was given a swag bag to rival all swag bags. The cloth bags came complete with full size products from beauty line. I am so excited to try out the facial blotting papers, nail laquer, coupons to shop the line and cleansing gel among other things.
Make sure you check the line out the next time you are at CVS.
Hope you like.

You are worthy
