Hey Luvs!

Last weekend was such a blast, but a bit stressful as well. I had attended three nights of  Hartford Fashion Week and did a lot of running around to find the perfect outfit for the events, making sure I had all of the backup batteries for my camera, confirming that I had enough business cards to take with me, all while trying to make these events on time after leaving my 9 to 5 job. After viewing the last fashion show.....I was exhausted, I was ready for some downtime.

Luckily, over the weekend I received a 6 bottle kit of Anjou 100% Pure Essential Oils. I really wanted to experience a day of calming and relaxation. I felt that siting in an aromatherapy room and curling up with a good book would be best…. So I decided to make an aromatherapy room spray.

Here are some facts about Essential Oils:

Essential Oils are the oils that are extracted from flowers, plant roots, leaves, peels, bark or stems. This oil is the most potent form of the plant or flower. Essential oils can be used in multiply ways and can be beneficial to one’s physical and emotional health. Some benefits of essential oils are that they can either be anti-inflammatory, an antioxidant or antibacterial.

Within the 6 bottle kit I received (1)10ml bottle that listed the country of origin:

Lavender – South Africa

Lemongrass- India

Peppermint - Japan

Eucalyptus- China

Tea Tree- Australia

Sweet Orange- Canada

I knew I wanted to experience the scent of Peppermint, Lavender with a bit of citrus. Below are the instructions on how I made my aromatherapy room spray.

What you will need:

(1) 4oz dark glass spray bottle

Essential oils: Peppermint, Lavender and Sweet Orange

2 oz of Distill water or vodka or witch hazel (I went with distill water and witch hazel)

I made sure that the glass bottle is clean before I poured in 2oz of distill water and 1 oz of witch hazel. For each essential oil...I dropped about 5-6 drops. I then tightened the top and shook all the ingredients for a 30 seconds...and wallah! We have an aromatherapy room spray!

Anjou Top 6 Essential Oil set is truly wonderful. I love the scents of all the oils, but my most favorite oils are Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lavender. The fact that they are natural, is a major plus for me as well. This set is makes a perfect gift for someone. The package is quite nice…the six oils comes in a super sleek black box that resembles a drawer.

I am 100% recommending Anjou Top 6 Essential Oils!! As stated before there are multiply ways these oils can be used.

My Grand Prairie Wayfarer| Glasses Shop Review

5:13:00 PM Jem Lawren 0 Comments


A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by and they wanted to know if I would be interested in trying out a pair of glasses from their website. I was super excited about this opportunity...for I was in need of a new pair of stylish glasses... so I haply excepted. focuses on online eyeglasses and sunglasses. Their prescription sunglasses and eyeglasses frames come with a 90-day quality guarantee. deliver superior eyeglasses at an unbeatably-low price. 

I love wearing glasses. There are so many shapes, sizes, styles, colors and brands one can choose from. I feel that eyeglasses sometimes are the missing piece to an outfit. If you're like me...your glasses mostly likely will turn into an accessory.
When it comes to prescription, I do however own a pair of low prescription glasses. I normally don't wear them because I use these glasses "as needed"...especially on days where my eyes may become a bit tired from spending hours on my computer.

When choosing glasses frames, I normally tend to gravitate to eye wear that are black and has a classic look or feel. This time, I really wanted to own a pair of eyeglasses frames that were colorful or had a bit of color in them. The glasses frames I chose were Grand Prairie Wayfarer in the color purple. 

Navigating through the site was super easy. If you are unsure of how the frames would look on your face, GlassShop has a "try-on" feature which allows you to select a gender and face shape to view how the glasses would fit. After you select your frames you will then provide any RX and PD(pupillary distance) if prescription lenses are needed. The eyeglasses arrived fairly quickly and well packaged. The frames were enclosed in a plastic compact case along with a microfiber cloth.

I love my purple Grand Prairie Wayfarer glasses!! They are lightweight, fashionable, classy but most of all affordable! If you would to get yourself pair of new glasses, use the the coupon code GSHOT50 and you'll get 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses(sale frames excluded).


The Salvation Army Redemption Fashion Show Recap

Hey Luvs,

Last Saturday I was given a wonderful opportunity to cover the debut of The Salvation Army of CT's first Redemption Fashion Show.

"The Redemption Fashion Show introduced The Salvation Army's REDEEMED brand. The REDEEMED brand is the hope, imagination and love expressed in infinite possibilities by practitioners of these eternal qualities."

This fashion show allowed local designer to turn clothing that were once considered old into something new, exciting, but most of all trendy! Local designers such as Bertha Angelo, Fachinn, Marion Imbruglio, Couture France, Catherine Henry, Stacy Lawes and Vilinda McGregor grace the runway with their own uniqueness and style.

The designs were definitely impressive....the designs were "thrifty chic". As each model strut down the runway, I noticed that these designers had truly put in thought and effort into what is known as an "eco-couture" design.
The show in itself was amazing. It ran smoothly and most of all, it was well thought out.
To find out more about the REDEEMED brand or to stay in the know about The Salvation Army of CT, you can simply head over to their Facebook page at Redemption Fashion Show .
