Now that the Royal Wedding Day is over, you can go back to planning YOUR big day!
I know. I know. It’s dreadful. It’s stressful. It’s expensive.
Keep remembering that it’s a celebration of family, friends, life, and love.
Plus, I’m always here to help you out with some of that stress so you can cross off something on that to-do list!
Remember this post, Gifts For Your Guy? Have a look to refresh your memory. Well, those same people are bringing us a website to help us all. Check out Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique, here you’ll be able to find the perfect gift for all the lovely bridesmaids in your wedding party!
It comes with a silky smooth cotton floral robe (your choice of colors: Soft Pink, White, Burgundy, and Navy) and a glittering tumbler (colors are Gold or Silver Sparkle.) Both items come in a customized keepsake gift-box with a magnetic closure.
The robe and tumbler can be customized with the receivers initial, also your choice of color so each recipient can have their favorite color imprinted on the robe and tumbler for even MORE personal touch.
By the way, the robe is available for us curvy girls in XL (plus size) which I ordered. It fits perfectly with lots of room, as a size 18-20, I could probably go to a smaller size and still have room. Just know that it will fit all your curvy and plus size bridesmaids/friends.
Bonus: The gifts on Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique can also be purchased for any holiday or gift for that special lady in your life…trust me, she’ll love it!
I love color… bright colors… pastel colors… dull colors… I love them ALL! But this edition of Wednesday Wants didn’t start out as a post about three of my favorite colors.
Confused? I’ll try to fill you in and make this a short story um if I can haha.
So this originally started as a Valentine’s Day/date night/just relaxing at home outfit ideas post (yes, practically a month ago 🙄)
BUT the night I was finishing up, Comcast/Xfinity decided to do “updates in the area” and I lost internet for 14 hours (I despise them btw)! Then when I tried to salvage the post the next day, the fan on my laptop went haywire, THEN when I tried to finish via my phone, the formatting was off and messed up the previous work that was completed! So needless to say, trying to complete this post has been one frustrating ass journey.
Started from the bottom now we here!
If anything that looks off or weird, me and usually my perfectionism are sorry.
Let’s do this!
Starting with PINK! Yes, it’s a fave. This tomboyish, sports loving, car know-it-all LOVES pink! I don’t wear it often but know I always have something pink with me.
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.
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?
Every time Valentine’s Day rolls around, people in relationships are hit with a dilemma: What am I going to get him or her for Valentine’s Day?!
If you aren’t asking yourself this question, congratulations, you are free to spend all your monies on yourself!
Maybe I’ll get around to a wonderful post on self-spending…oops…self-love.
In the meantime, let’s look around at gifts for our significant others.
The title of this post is not misleading, as you know, here at Curves And Coffee, I try to cover ALL spending levels. If you have $20 or less to spend or you’re balling out of control and spending upwards of $500 or more…I’ve got you covered! Below, you’ll find gifts for any girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse, or significant other in just about every category.
This is kind of a two-fer…for both him AND her! It can also just be worn for just yourself…a day or night when you just want to sleep sexily. If you haven’t checked out their complete Valentine’s Day Cacique collection, please do! If I could get every single sexy piece of lingerie, I would in a heartbeat!
Perfect for the amateur photographer or anyone who loves taking selfies. This camera is an update to the instant Polaroid of the “old days.” It instantly prints out the pics you take on a mini scale film. Bonus: it comes in different colors so your fashion forward significant other will love it even more!
Another versatile Valentine’s Day gift for him or her. A custom baseball jersey for your significant other would be a great way to cheer on their team before the MLB season gets underway. You can also get their favorite player if you don’t want to go the custom route or if you’re running short on time.
Everyone knows someone who wouldn’t mind an aged Scotch (well, I’m guessing here a tad but a lover of spirits will love this for sure!) Shock them with this gift and beautiful bottle for his bar. There’s also a great back story about the Chivas Brothers to go along with this brand. Be sure to sneak that into the gift-giving.
OK, let’s be real…you know she’s the boss but now everyone else can know it too! These are so very close to the $500 price tag that once you add tax + shipping (unless it’s free). You’ll get several frequent flyer miles on your card after this purchase!
Show her and tell her just how you feel with this gorgeous necklace. She’ll be glad you did!
Caribbean Cruise $Cost Will Vary
Because, who wouldn’t want to get away for a couple of days and hide from winter?! Count me in! Also, someone take me on a cruise! Let’s all pack up and enjoy lots of sunshine (with sunscreen of course) have some cocktails and forget about everything except your cabin key! I didn’t pick a particular brand or cruise line simply because everyone has their own preferences and that choice is best left up to you, the buyer. Before you cruise, do your due diligence in research…my favorite cruise site is Cruise Critic, check them out and read the forums for tons of cruising tips.
What a wonderful list of Valentine’s Day gifts, right?!
As always, if you do shop and buy something from any of my lists, drop me a line to let me know!
