Heavy on Fashion Self-Care Kit - Because 2016 is A...We all need it! *

Hello, all my divas and gurus! I am so happy to bring you another Self-Care kit. As you all know, some craziness during this election and we all need a break especially with what will be coming up next. We all need a Self Care day to brace for the craziness that's about to go down in the White House, that awkward Thanksgiving dinner and the stressful holiday season. There are several ways to self-care. I have made two different self care kits. One for staying in and the other for going out! Let get into Heavy On Fashion Self-Care Kit - Because 2016 Is A...We All Need It!

Cold Pressed Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Nita's Naturals' Vanialla Oatment Bath and Body Bar, Nita's Naturals' , Zumbar Goat's Milk Soap - Almond, and Nubian Heritage Lemongrass & Tea Tree Soap with Orange Peel

This is some of my favorite items for a stay in and relax day. Get that Pandora radio blast, the tub ready and a Stay In Self Care Day! 

 Cold Pressed Jamaican Black Castor Oil - I love using Cold Pressed Jamaican Black Castor Oil  for moisturizing my scalp. I use Cold Pressed Jamaican Black Castor Oil after washing my hair for my scalp.  You only need a small amount of Cold Pressed Jamaican Black Castor Oil, so the bottle lasts for a while. You can pick up Cold pressed Jamaican Black Castor Oil from any beauty supply store or even Amazon.com. 

Nita's Naturals' Vanilla Oatmeal Bath/Body Bar -   I was introduced to Nita;s Naturals at a street fair in Newark, NJ. I am very happy that I brought this and the lip balm. I am in love with homemade/natural beauty products. I am so happy to add Nita's product to my self-care list - Nita's Naturals' Bath Bar Vanilla Oatmeal cost $8 a bar. Not a bad price for a Vegan bath bar.  http://nitasnaturals.com/

Nita's Naturals' Cherry-Orange Lip Balm - You can not go wrong with a good lip balm. I love the smell of Nita's Naturals Cherry-Orange Lip Balm. This lip ingredient are Beeswax, Orange Butter, Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Cherry Oil!  Nothing else! no weird colors or additives. http://nitasnaturals.com/

Zumbar Goat's Milk Soap in Almond - Another great Soap bar is the  Zumbar Goat's Milk Soap in Almond. I love this bar for the winter time. It is moisturizing and smells great. I brought this soap up at Wegmans in NJ. One of my favorite stores.  http://www.indigowild.com/zum-bar-natural-soap-almond.html

Nubian Heritage Lemongrass & Tea Tree Soap with Orange Peel - I love Nubian Heritage products. One of my favorite Soap for my face is the Nubian Heritage Lemongrass & Tea Tree Soap with Orange Peel. I use it with my Spa Sonic brush. I love the smell, especially for those cool New Jersey mornings. The Tea Tree oil works great on my skin, especially for my break. It is also a great soap for waking up in the morning. https://www.nubianheritage.com/lemongrass-tea-tree-bar-soap

Dr. Remedy Nail Polish, Static Schmatic Basic kit, Cleure travel kit, and Mary Kay Cosmetics Lipstick and Mascara

Dr. Remedy Nail Polish, Static Schmatic Basic kit, Cleure travel kit, and Mary Kay Cosmetics Lipstick and Mascara

If you have to get up, get out and do something, Than opt for a Travel Self-Care Day. Get your nails done, you make-up done and your hair ready. Take yourself out to eat, go shopping or just explore!

Dr. Remedy Nail Polish - I love nail polish. It is a great way to set your style apart from others without going broke. I was gift these three nail polishes by Dr. Remedy  earlier in the year and I am in love with the colors. Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish Trusting Turquoise, Optimistic Orange, and Pleasing Peach are a great pick to fight those Fall and winter blues. Now these colors are no longer available on Dr. Remedy Nail Polish website but I am pretty sure you can find these on Amazon.com. You can find everything on Amazon! 

Static Schmatic - Static Schmatic is a great company that deals with solving Static.  I was given the Static Schmatic Basic Essentials Kit in an event gift bag and I am really impressed. To be honest I do not use the Clothes spray very but Hair spray is great! I use Static Schmatic hair spray on my synthetic wigs. It works wonders. I was very surprised considering this is not the typical use for this. Check out Static Schmatic for just $19 at https://staticschmatic.com/

Cleure - If you are having a Travel self-care , check out the Cleure travel size products. My favorite is the sunscreen. Many do not know but UVA rays are pretty high in the fall. The best way to self- care is to take care of the largest organ, your skin. I really like the cleanser. The toner is ok but my favorite item is the sunscreen. This is a great little traveling kit for a self-care day at a fancy hotel or B&B. Cleure has a great travel line. Check it out at http://www.cleure.com/

Mary Kay Cosmetics Lipstick and Mascara- Finally, I received the True Dimensions Lipstick and Lash Love Mascara in a nice gift bag. This is a great light makeup combo for facing the rest of the day. The True Dimensions Lipstick in 'Wild About Pink' is great light pink. I like to use this lipstick with other colors to add some depth to my lips. It is also a great color for a super light makeup day. The Lash Love Mascara is a mascara that adds nice definition. I mean you can't wrong with a good mascara. Go to  
Mary Kay Cosmetics for these great products at https://www.marykay.com

Heavy on Fashion is making moves!

Now as you all may or may not know, Heavy on Fashion will be going to a branding change. Nothing really huge! I will still have NYFW, book reviews, gift guides, self-care guides, and of course going to really cool events (fashion and beauty based). I will also cover a lot more areas that I am finding myself love like tech in fashion and beauty, conference events, health (Physical and mental), and yummy food reviews/features.

I am hoping to start a vlog series as well. This has been an idea that I have had for many years. It will be a video series of all the events I am attending from leaving the house to my reaction to the event, open box reviews, shopping, gift and self-care guides previews, and my personal book picks. I am hoping to have the Heavy on Fashion Vlog up by January 2017.
