Heavy on Fashion Product Review - Half United Accessories*

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! As you all know I love jewelry especially if it is a part of a worthy cause. Half United is an accessories company that gives 50% of all proceeds to fighting world hunger.Each necklace contains a bullet that was recycled from a local target range.  When I was ask to check out Hunger United, I was honored. I am all in for great accessories with a message and a cause. So divas and gurus, here are my thoughts on Half United!




I have to say that I really like the classic Fighting Hunger Necklace in silver and black. This is great all year long. It is lightweight, classic, and fashionable. If you are looking for a classic necklace, that can transition from day to night, than I would suggest this style.  The length is ideal for any look. 
Here is the Half United necklace called The Avenue in Mint Green and Gold. I love the color. The Avenue is a great look for the spring and summer. It looks fabulous against a great a crisp white tank  top or a simple sund…

Heavy on Fashion Reviews: Perlier 8-piece Mini Set with Bag*

Hello my fashion divas and gurus! I am happy to bring you another great review courtesy of iFabbo. This time I had the opportunity to try out Perlier 8 piece mini set! When I announced on instagram that I was going to be reviewing Perlier, many of my friends told me that I am going to love Perlier. They were right!


 Perlier is a fantastic beauty that full of quality, fabulous scents, and lux! I loved the entire collection. The body balms moisturized my skin with ease, which is great because I suffer from dry skin and finding a great body balm (lotion) is a task. The Shower creams was refreshing and did not dry out my skin. I was utterly impressed, I have to say. If you are looking for a great present for a friend or a luxury beauty kit without the luxury price - $19.95, this kit is your answer.


So all my Beauty divas and gurus, if  you want to get your Perlier 8-piece Mini Set with Bag go to:
