GabiFresh X SwimSexy 2015

Finally, a gorgeous swimwear line dedicated to curvy girls! GabiFresh presents her second collection for SwimSexy and it is exactly that- SEXY! Decked out with floral prints, sexy cut outs, and amazing support in the bust, this collection will not disappoint you! 

"I cannot express how happy I am to share my newest bikini collection for SwimSexy with you guys! ... This time around, I designed 9 different pieces (8 bikinis and a one piece), and they’re honestly my favorite to date. True to my style, I went for bold colors, fun designs and cool details. There was no watering down or holding back (this happens often when brands make things for our size demo); I simply designed beautiful statement pieces that I knew stylish girls would love. From jellyfish and oil prints to oversized zippers and cutouts, I really did think about every single element, and I hope you guys can tell how much time and effort I put into these. I care so much about the plus size girls out there who are constantly feeling left out or like they’re an afterthought to brands, and I never want to make my customers feel that way. We all deserve to feel confident and sexy, and that includes when we hit the beach. When I look back at my journey with the fatkini, I couldn’t be prouder of how far we’ve come as a community and how many women are now joining the movement. I’m so grateful to you and also to swimsuitsforall for giving me this unimaginable opportunity. - GabiFresh

We are so proud of Gabi and I personally can't wait to wear these fun suits!

How To: Reinvent Your Look

It only takes a few details to help spruce up your look. Check out these simple 5 ways to take your hair from drab to fab:
 
1)Add Color: Whether it be an ever so daring ombre or subtle pop of color with highlights, changing your hair color can give your hair an instant make over. Try asking your stylist to install a color from our Hysteria or Keratique collection.
 
2)Revamp Your Cut: Try applying fringe layers to your style. Angling your layers over one eye or opting for long lash sweeping bangs, which will give you instant sexy hair.
 
3)Change up Your Length:  Instead of going for your normal 16” tube of Pure Wavy take a plunge and try the 20” elongating your hair length will give you a new look without any commitment to color or change in texture. Pure Wavy in 20" will also give you long, lustrous waves. On the opposite end if you always go for longer hair try a mid length or short bob to quickly change up your normal look.
 
4)Layer Your Mane: Layers create movements and nothing draws attention to your hair like body, create your own wind ladies!
 
5)Straighten it Out: Straight hair that looks healthy and well maintained always turns head. Try using our Zen Straight texture from our Sea Collection, a dime size amount of our Argan Oil Moisturizer and a durable flat iron. If you always opt for big body waves or curls, going straight will help to draw attention to your facial features and will also complement that great new eye shadow or lipstick you’ve been dying to break out.

Skincare Treatments for the Winter

It's so easy for your skin to dry during the winter due to indoor heat and outdoor wind chills. Just as you have swapped clothes for the season, you should switch your skincare products too. Your summer glow doesn't have to go away in the winter! Here's some tips to help you stay hydrated this winter:

image.jpg

1. Drink lots of water.

Drinking water is important in all seasons and helps to keep you healthy.

During the winter, water will help to give your skin more moisture and if you are drinking about 6-8 glasses a day your skin won't get dry.

2. Shower Temperatures.

Who doesn't love a nice warm shower, especially after a long day. If the water temperature is too hot it will make your skin dry and itchy and can possibly make your hair dull.

3. Apply Moisturizer.

Your skin needs more moisture in the winter than in any other season. Apply a moisturizer right after a shower while your skin is damp. Be sure to choose a moisturizer carefully! Some can possibly dry out your skin even more.

4. Exfoliate.

Exfoliating once a week is a great way to take care of your skin this season. A good face mask always does the trick.If you are looking for one, LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics makes great masks for your skin.

5. Hydrate from the Inside Out.

Fruits and vegetables are moisturizers too! Plenty of fruits are high in water and if you are looking for a quick snack during the day it would be a great choice to eat either fruits or vegetables.

Before we know it, it will be summer again. If you want your skin to be glowing. Try the tips to keep your skin hydrated and healthy all season.

Shaking in My Boots

Each season seems to have its own category of specialized footwear. Summer has its strappy sandal and flip flops, Spring has its flats and peep toe pumps, and Winter has its riding boots and uggs. But what about Fall? When it comes to fall footwear its all about an ankle bootie. Booties are extremely versatile and comfortable. Short booties look great paired with skinny jeans and a pullover or with a sweater dress and tights. Wear them from daylight to dawn and you’ll be looking good no matter what. Since they’ve become such a huge trend this fall they are not that hard to find. Be sure to grab a pair of short booties this fall, they are a great addition to any wardrobe.

Weather the Storm: How to Make Your Shoes Last

Fall is here and soon winter will be knocking on our doors. Leather and Suede boots are more than a statement for both seasons, they are a "must have." With the snow and rain our boots and shoes go through trenches and sometimes barely make it by the end of the seasons. Leather is skin and it needs to be cleaned and moisturized. Taking preventative steps, like adding sole quads and spraying the leather can add years to the life of your shoes. 

Unlike leather, Suede requires a little more maintenance. If you douse shoes with a leather-protectant spray every few months it will create a shield that keeps water and grime from penetrating. If you get caught in the rain with either leather or suede boots stuff your shoes with paper towel or newspaper when you get home. It will help to keep the shape. Try these tips and your boots or shoes should stay durable throughout the season.
