A Heavy on Fashion Read! A review of Bump it Up by Amy Tara Koch

Hey, Everyone! I am so happy to present my first book review on Heavy on Fashion. I received Bump it Up at the Getting Gorgeous with Degree event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City back in April 2011. I had the chance to meet the author and I was in awe of Amy's style. I know it took me a minute to review this book but trust and believe me that Bump It Up is a fashion must whether you are pregnant or a lover of fashion and beauty! So without further ado, Here is A Heavy on Fashion Reads! 

A review of Bump it Up by Amy Tara Koch!

I pretty much highlighted the entire book! 

Summary
Many of Amy's tips do not just apply to if your are preggers but to anyone who need some TLC when it comes to fashion. Being pregnant and stylish is not the easiest thing to do in the world. For many pregnant fashion diva, Bump it up will be a great book to have. From how to save some money by using item in your closet to what essential pieces you need to buy; Bump it Up has all the tip you need to get through Pregnancy fashion woes!


Favorite Parts!
  • The Fashion illustrations from some of the hottest designers in the industry including Diane Von Furtenburg, Whitney Pozgay of Kate Spade, Nicole Miller, and tons more.
  • The beauty advice in Bump It Up is fabulous! Finding natural and safe beauty products to use while preggers is a task, luckily you can see some great tips in Bump It Up.  I really love the DIY beauty recipes for fabulous exfoliates and hydration creams.  The DIY tip for baggy eyes is a winner too.
  • Lycra is not only a woman's best friend but also a woman with a bun in the oven. I also found out that Spanx has a great line called marvelous mama unbelievable underwear. Too good!
  • The Monthly Maturity checklist throughout the book is essential for any and everyone with child in the belly.   I also love the fashion tips, they were very realistic to find and buy.  

I am so happy to find a pregnancy book that is real and fashionable. Since my husband and I are working on starting a family this year, I am really happy to add Bump It Up as a resource for my pregnancy lit.  I hope you will check out this book too whether you are aiming for a baby or look for a great fashion read!

Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's Girl Nights out in NYC - Fall 2011

Hey guys! As you all know, I had a chance to cover Shecky's Girls Night Out in New York City.  I am a fan of Shecky's  event but this time around I found some great fashion, a celebrity sighting, and of course some great cocktails. Here is Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's in NYC!  

Vh1's Tough Love Miami @ Shecky's
Host and matchmaker Steve Ward along with fellow match maker and founder of Master Matchmaker Joann Ward (also Steve's Mom!) was at Shecky's giving out some great dating advice to all the ladies in New York! 




Don't you just love this dress. Fabulous! 

Here is a look at the crowd for Steve and Joann. Many ladies had some awesome question about relationships and dating. I have to say that Steve and Joann gave some grand advice. 

Sidenote: I am really loving Joann's style! 

When Steve took off his jacket, I knew he was  about to get down to business! He did and gave out some much needed Tough Love! Check out their site at http://www.mastermatchm…

Heavy on Fashion Goes to The Alex Soldier Showroom

Hey everyone! I had a great opportunity to visit the The Alex Soldier Showroom in New York City. I became familiar with Alex Soldier at a private showcase in New York City. When I received a email from Maria Soldier, Executive Director of the Alex Soldier Showroom, to come and check out the Alex Soldier collection in New York City. I was honored.

Alex Soldier has a vast collection of jewelry and artwork that is exceptional in craftsmanship and quality. From unique luxury jewelry with exotic diamonds and precious stone designed for the rich and famous to awards for Royalty. Alex is a creator and a example of true artistry in the world of luxury.

Here is one of my favorite piece from Alex's collection. This starfish ring is full of precious stones including diamonds. The best thing some of Alex Soldiers' pieces is that are interchangeable. Each piece has a custom key for each interchangeable piece.  They can be a ring or a pin. I believe the company is also working on making these…
