Sex Addiction: Sex and the City 2 Review

Not sure where to start...this movie is amazing! The Sex, The City (I love my city!!!!) and of  course the fashion......

If you love magazines, glamour and fashion you will love Sex and the City 2. So much eye candy throughout the movie. The clothes are amazing of course, but the backdrops were styled to a tee! Each scene had the perfect everything that made you want to be there. Sand dunes, beaches, private jets, luxury suites with butler service, Maybachs, cabanas - one Vouge photo shoot after the next.. every detail was styled, even the luggage - I loved the luggage!

The movie had so much "go girl" power in it. I love that the girls are still the same and have so much fun together. The comedic timing is perfect - Miranda and Charlotte discussing the trials of motherhood was hilarious! Samantha, is and always will be a sexy, confident, strong woman - she gets it in!

Loved the gay fabness in the movie! So much fun! Okay let's get to the best part the fashion.....speechless, I mean there are no words for the fashion sensory overload that I've experienced from watching this movie, I loved it, but see for yourself:

Go see the movie... your eyes will thank you!

And, because there are no words here is the Sex and the City trailer which I've watched a trillion times even since watching the movie. Such a dork!

Happy Cinco De Mayo

What is Cinco de Mayo other than an excuse to drink? Well it is actually the day that the Mexican army defeated French forces at the battle of Puebla  - May 5, 1862.

For me Cinco de Mayo means cheap margaritas! You can get your Cinco De Mayo drink on too, check out the link below for fun hot spots in NYC to celebrate and get drunk.

Video Addiction - Why Don't You Love Me?

"Why Don't You Love Me" - Beyoncé from Beyoncé on Vimeo.

Our girl Bey is vintage sexy in this video. The 50's was such a wonderful era full of flattering sexy silhouettes for women.

I love the styling in this video! The clothes, hair and make-up make me wanna play dress up right now. I will definitely be rocking some serious eye make-up this summer inspired by the 50's and Mrs. Carter.

Some patterns to set the mood:

Loves everything retro!

Natural Addiction - Baking Soda

I use baking soda for just about everything. Right now I am singing the praises of baking soda to remove blackheads.

Baking soda is like a dirt vaccum; it just sucks the dirt out and off of anything. I just gave myself a baking soda facial and my skin feels great. It's so soft and smooth! I am blackhead free without using Biore strips. Best of all, the ingredients used to make this mask can be found in your kitchen. All you need is baking soda and water.

How to make the mask:

Mix baking soda and a little bit of water together to form a paste. Rub the paste on your face and let it sit until completely dry. Rinse the mask off and dry the skin.

Repeat this process over time to achieve clear skin as baking soda not only removes blackheads but also keeps acne at bay.

How radiant is your skin now? You will never buy another box of Biore strips again.
