www.WagCares.com – Walgreens WagCares Survey $3000 cash sweepstakes

August 19th, 2012 · No Comments

Believe it or not, I go to Walgreens to pick up some of my fashion accessories and there are a few unknown tips that every woman should know in getting products at Walgreens. Everyone associates Walgreens as a place to get your prescription drugs, but there is more to it if you shop the aisles. After your shopping, there is also a survey you can visit that gives you a chance to win $3000 cash prize at www.wagcares.com paid in the form of a check.

Tip 1 – Hollywood Fashion Tape
These tapes are a life saver and a novel invention. If you need to keep your bra straps up, blouses in place, stick revealing necklines so they don’t drop. The takeaway tin box contains about 36 of these tapes and it makes it easy to carry in your bag and use it anytime you need. It may not work on heavier clothing but they are fairly stick and even sometimes hard to remove from the skin.

Hollywood Fashion tape

Tip 2 – Hair Accessories
There are plenty of different style hair accessories to choose from at Walgreens. The Revlon Couture Hair Accessory Stone Barrette is one of my favorite hair accessory that helps me keep my hair in place and still look stylish and traditional.

Tip 3 – Makeup
A great place to get makeup products on the go. If you need a lipstick, eyelash or other makeup items, Walgreens is a great place to grab some of these items. From the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Mousse to the IMAN Perfect Eyeshadown Pencil to the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation, there is something for every woman.

Fund your purchases with WagCares survey
And when you finish shopping, don’t throw away that receipt. It has a survey code and password you need to participate in the $3000 WagCares with an invitation to visit www.wagcares.com survey online. If you fill in the survey and complete the survey, you will be eligible to participate in the WagCares sweepstakes survey and you can stand a chance to win $3,000 for your shopping spree. Then check back for the WagCares sweepstakes winners list at the wagcares.com website.

Spring 2012 Hottest Bags!

May 9th, 2012 · No Comments

Yes, we are back from a long hiatus and that’s because we have the essential bags you HAVE to get this spring.  With lots of sunny and cheerful colors, these bags will match the blooming flowers and get you in the mood to get out of the house and enjoy the fresh air.  And not just bags, we also have our thoughts about cute clutches that might also catch your fancy.  Ready or not, here’s the first one.

 B-Low the Belt Twiggy Handbag

B-Low The Belt Twiggy Handbag ($429) is an all-leather handbag featuring fringe details and gold hardware. It comes with a detachable shoulder strap and magnetic-snap main compartment closure. Lined interior features 3 patch pockets.  Available in orange, this bag will go really well with a plain white dress, matching cardigan and cute white sandals.  Perfect for the girly girl who wants a little edge on her spring wardrobe.

Our next favorite is the super cute Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Clutch ($195).  Before we say anything more, do enjoy the cool color.

Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Clutch 195

A floral top, white capri pants and a sexy pair of colorful heels will be perfect with this Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Clutch.  Made entirely from cowhide leather, the cute clutch features elegant silver hardware.  It’s the subtle and sexy way to channel your inner rocker!

Next we have this simple yet gorgeous yellow clutch.  Don’t be fooled by its appearance… we love it for it sports the fashion saying “Less is More” perfectly.

A girl’s gotta love the Claire Vivier Fold-Over Clutch ($150), as it doesn’t have too many details but bold enough to make a fashion statement.  Add it to your favorite bold-colored dress and shoes (we’re thinking blue, aqua or even shocking pink), and practice the basic color-blocking technique really easily.  Another thing to love: the all-leather clutch is so roomy you can take your essentials without looking like you’re going camping.  Wear it day or night, the clutch screams… glamor!

Lastly, we know you still have to work and some office, no matter how sunny it is outside… just won’t allow too many colors on its employees.  So here’s our pick for you, career ladies who need something new to carry this spring:

Tory Burch Rosalyn Satchel

It’s the Tory Burch Rosalyn Satchel ($395), perfect for office wear and great for casual days.  Need we say more?

So what’s your pick, readers?

Travel In Style

July 21st, 2010 · No Comments

Vacations are wonderful, but sometimes we have to compromise our fashionable style just to accommodate the stuff that ironically makes us look… well, fashionable.  The dilemma is how to appear fabulous effortlessly on your vacation while conveniently carry all your belongings, at least to the plane’s cabin. Solution: get a great-looking keep-all.  Or travel bag. Or anything big enough for all your fabulous stuff. The key thing to keep things chic and simple is to stay on the natural color scheme.  Colors too loud will only work on paparazzi-inducing celebrities.  So if you’re more of a quiet but stylish traveler, check our picks!

Frye Blair Crossbody, $428

Farm Tactics Field Backpack, $195

Jessica Simpson’s No Make Up Marie Claire Cover: Legit or Not?

April 14th, 2010 · No Comments

By today, the world has recognized the suddenly-famous Marie Claire cover: the make-up-less Jessica Simpson. But then questions raised and people are starting to talk about the legitimation of the ‘loud’ no make-up statement. This is simple in our regular world, but very big in the fashion and beauty world!

Some blogs reported that if you look closely to the cover image, there’s some make-up residue around her eyes or maybe they are touches of mascara. Anybody can say negative stuff, but Jessica stood up for herself:

“I absolutely was not wearing make-up. If anyone compared the Marie Claire Photos to the airbrushed ones, the differences would definitely be noticeable.”

Aside from promoting her upcoming reality show “Price of Beauty”, Jessica wanted to send out an important message to women that she is a normal person and thus boosts their self esteem.

Well, it’s good that Jess is not selling make up (yet) in her Jessica Simpson fashion line, so you can enjoy her designs without being a ‘different’ person.  Fabcrush has selected some strikingly hot Jessica Simpson fashion items for your summer, and here’s the complete beach outfit.  With things like these, who needs make up?

Jessica Simpson Oversized Floppy Hat, $44

Jessica Simpson Shades, $51

Jessica Simpson Long Sundress, $118

Jessica Simpson Cane Sandals, $69

Jessica Simpson St. Tropez Tote Bag, was $128, now $91.35

Say It With The Statement Necklace

October 8th, 2009 · No Comments

There was a time where a woman would think that only pearls around her neck can say something about her.  Pearls say ‘class’, and other accessories used to stay somewhat… silent.  Lately, the statement necklaces are crawling their way onto women’s necks and while they might seem weird at first, we assure you that they just take some getting used to.  You gotta get used to them real fast, though, because they’re the ‘it’ accessory this fall and they don’t only say stuff.  They scream out loud.

ACB by Annie Costello Brown V Neck Fringe Necklace

For first-time wearers, the ACB by Annie Costello Brown V Neck Fringe Necklace ($305.00) is subtle enough, yet casual enough to wear with jeans and edgy enough to wear with a simple dress.

Lizzie Fortunato Jewels Midnight Rambler Necklace

If you just love trying on different things and experimenting with fashion (or simply like to be the fabulous center of attention), this Lizzie Fortunato Jewels Midnight Rambler Necklace ($436.00) is perfect for you.  Going to the fashion edge will never be the same.

Juicy Couture Sequin Drama Bib Necklace

The Juicy Couture Sequin Drama Bob Necklace ($228.00) is a charming way to wear a statement necklace.  Think flowy pastel tube dresses and elegant cocktail parties to match.

Fiona Paxton Gilda Collar Necklace

Looking for a different kick in ‘exotic’ accessory?  The Fiona Paxton Gilda Collar Necklace ($375.00) screams “Sexy!” enough said.

Citrine by the Stones Large Drape Necklace

If you think statement necklaces are only appropriate to wear at daytimes, think again.  The Citrine by the Stones Large Drape Necklace ($318.00) is exquisite to brighten up that sexy little black dress.  It’s the new kind of elegance and no woman shall deny it.
