It’s been one heck of a fun and blessed week. On Tuesday I got an e-mail from a producer asking if I can stop by on Wednesday morning to share some of my beauty and style tips. I usually book segments like those 2-3 weeks in advance. I told her I’ll get back to her, and two hours later I confirmed. The rest of the day consisted of getting items to display for the show and buying a last-minute outfit.
I went to my go-to spot for fast fashion to look for a dress. (The goal is to always find something inexpensive and that somewhat hides my gut.) The dresses I tried on were a fail, so I went with a top and skirt combo. I love sleeveless mock neck tops. I have a few at home, but not in this color. Burgundy and brown tones are popular during this time of year and it was quite fitting for my summer-to-fall lifestyle segment.
Both the skirt and top are from H&M. The skirt is a size 10. I tried on my usual 4/6, but like the jeans, I guess I’m also a size 10 in skirts at H&M.
The booties are from T.J. Maxx.
Here I am with hosts Janice Benscome and Audris Rijo from Telemundo’s Acceso Total NY. I shared tips on body and face creams to try this season, matte lipstick, and fall fashion essentials. They really loved the hats from JCPenney. I gave Audris a Curel bottle and the next day on Instagram she told me she liked the moisturizer. I’ll get into all the products in the following blog post.

Doesn’t it look like I’m in Miami in the photo above?! But no – it’s the storefront of a new Thai place on Bond Street. I love those colors!
