Chromat never disappoints when it’s time to go down the runway and show the world what a diverse show looks like!
This fashion season proved no different.
The 2018 Fall (autumn)/Winter runway was, as usual, filled with diversity from the people at Chromat! Featuring models of ALL shapes, sizes and backgrounds strutting their stuff down the runway, I shouted “YASSS” so much while looking at the pictures online.
So without further ado, join me in the excitement with LOTS of my faves (in slideshow form) from the runway show at New York Fashion Week!
Ever wondered what you can do keep your mouth its’ healthiest?! Besides brushing, flossing, and mouthwash splashing…
Here’s a new idea:
It’s qii (pronounced: chee)
“Introducing qii, the worlds first drink that tackles your oral health so you can unleash the power within. qii is formulated with XyVita which works by reducing your mouth’s acidity and risk of tooth decay while freshening your breath.”
I know what you’re thinking “Uh Rena, this isn’t coffee.” and I know but I don’t ALWAYS drink coffee…I love water, tea, cranberry juice and a good ol’ Mountain Dew when there isn’t a cup of java in front of me. Plus, this qii drink has some benefits!
Anything that can help your oral health sounds good to me! Especially when it’s something you can easily carry with you when you’re on the go or just chillin’. Bonus, it quenches your thirst too!
SO, how does it taste?
Not bad actually!
There’s currently two flavors, Classic Oolong Tea and Lemongrass Ginger Green Tea. I’ve had the opportunity to taste both…yes, I’ll always be the guinea pig for you guys. Of those two flavors, my favorite is the Classic Oolong Tea. It wasn’t really sweet at all and didn’t leave an aftertaste (which I was definitely worried about.) The Classic Oolong tastes like regular tea so yay! The Lemongrass Ginger Green Tea ehhh not my favorite and it definitely leaves an aftertaste. I LOVE ginger so that wasn’t it so it had to be the lemongrass flavor that wasn’t best FOR ME. If lemongrass is your thing then this flavor is certainly for you! Other than that, I’m absolutely glad this new drink brand is getting off the ground and promoting a healthy oral mouth!
I know, it’s been a while. The two main reasons… 1. I haven’t been wearing much makeup lately so there hasn’t been a need for me to post and 2. I’m really forgetful these days and when I do get new goodies, it completely skips my mind to post! For that, I am sorry.
Let’s hop to it shall we…
If you follow me on social media (if you’re not, what are you waiting for?! helloooo Twitter/Facebook) anywho… I shared these products long before this review so you had an early preview if you follow along.
I’ve tested both of them on my face over a regular light foundation and I really only like the white one. Maybelline Master Holographic wears light enough to be worn for any occasion but catches the light enough to be seen. It can be layered to produce an even brighter highlight if you like. The tan/gold/bronze color Maybelline Master Chrome doesn’t wear well for my skin tone. It could be that I have more red undertones (thanks sometimes bothersome rosacea) which makes it look as if my skin is just oddly colored or dry.
Check out this quick video of both swatched on my lower arm. I’m no YouTube guru but I tried my best LOL! I even added a little music, well it’s a 20second video so it’s barely music (heads up if your speakers or headphones are on)
I lightly used the powder then layered 2-3 coats simply using a finger. It’s super soft and little goes a long way especially if you aren’t doing a full coverage face.
Hope you enjoyed!
Disclaimer mumbo jumbo: I was given this for free by Influenster & Maybelline. I was NOT told to give a review or post any feedback of the item. This was on my own free will 😉
It’s that time of year again! Time for packing the shopping malls in search of the perfect gift for that perfect guy. Easier said than done of course. Well, I’m always here to help you with your shopping trip. Today, is a special feature for a great site called GroovyGuyGifts.com and yes, they’re really GREAT gifts!
This is the perfect gift for the guy who probably already has everything. With this personalized touch, he’ll be glad to show this off to everyone! The set features a shot glass and your choice of a knife or multi-tool that comes in a keepsake wooden box. All of which can be engraved.
I personally, opted to receive the shot glass and multi-tool not engraved, only because I was unsure of what to put on it. (Of course, totally regretting it now…just means I need to make a purchase for myself in the coming months.)
Speaking of other items, Groovy Guy Gifts has lots of cool items and great groomsmen gifts for those in wedding planning mode.
This wooden bottle opener can be engraved for everyone in your crew! Find it here: Snap A Cap
Full disclosure: I was given the opportunity to pick an item from the site, have it engraved and sent to me.
Coming for a Starbucks near you muuuhahaha (that’s my best scary laugh lol)

I TRIED IT!!!
You knew this would happen! So, the very next day, I decided to go out and try it (I also bought a caramel frappucino just in case this was god awful…gotta think ahead) The flavor was more mocha than green caramel apple to me. The apple flavor was more of an after taste but it wasn’t bad…I mean, it could’ve been worse. If you want to try it…go now…you have today (October 30th) and tomorrow (October 31st) ONLY!
The colorful frozen treat is filled with apple and caramel flavors. Not sure if I’ll grab one because these aren’t flavors that I particularly love BUT and that’s a big but…I don’t want to have FOMO (fear of missing out).
The Zombie Frappucino is only available between October 26th- October 31st so if you’re going to try it, you better hurry in to your nearest store and grab one!!
If you aren’t fast enough, you’ll miss it! And missed it I did.
One of my faves, Sophia Webster teamed up with Puma for another fantasy-filled-glitter-extravaganza that dropped this week!
All I wanted was this $550 varsity jacket in a XXL but of course it’s ALREADY sold out *super bummed face*. At least my credit card gets a break and my wallet gets a win! If you’re NOT a 2X, all other sizes are still available and I’m uber jealous…just kidding, get it girl!
All of the boots featured ARE available in wide calf.
So if you’re looking for a wide calf boot, simply click any link and you’re good to go! Remember prices may down during certain sales so be sure to watch the stores (and their websites) for falling prices on boots.
Are there any other fall finds that you’ve spied recently?
