Out with the old and in with the new!

Remembering the 3 R’s: Reduce, Refuse to use, so Recycle it! Here at FashionwithFifi, I've made a recycling bin designated specifically for cosmetics that I think should be recycled. The first recycled cosmetic belongs to none other than Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Heavenly eau de parfum. At first I was in awe with Heavenly (8 years ago) but now this white, peony, vanilla musk is burning my nose another nostril. I become nauseous every time I get a whiff of this stench. I’ve smelled better body mists by Victoria’s Secret that are now discontinued; such as Crimson Kiss (which was the best garden product ever made). No matter how many times Victoria Secret tries to repackage and market this as a new and improved item – it’s still the same stinking thing! This eau de passé parfum’s time has come and gone. This musk is definitely annoying me and therefore should be retired but since Victoria’s Secret refuses to do so, we’ll do it for them by putting it into good use – just not by us. Any suggestion for its new use because I’m all out of them?

Contest Season is HERE......................THE WORST CHRISTMAS EVER CONTEST


Remember that one Christmas when you were chiming into the holiday spirit, but then suddenly it took a turn for the worse? What happened that wasn’t supposed to? Did you receive a bad gift? Were you robbed or did you lose your wallet? Did you miss a flight to see a certain person who you will never see again? How did it ruin your Christmas? Tell us your story and maybe you will be the lucky winner. Let and FashionwithFifi make your Christmas better this year. Please Read the Rules before entering.


1. Contest begins Wednesday, December 17, 2008 at 12:01am EST and ends Thursday, December 25, 2008 at 12:00pm EST.

2. In order to enter, you must subscribe to the FashionwithFifi Youtube channel. Submit a video response or email to explaining your story. One entry per person. Please do not submit in a false entry. The winner will be judged on the best response, by me – Fifi.

3. The winner will be announced on my Youtube channel and at after 12 noon EST on Christmas Day.4. Contest is open to any and everyone, both in and outside the United States. Shipping is free to anyone in the United States, winners outside will be contacted.

Get Whiter & Brighter Teeth in 7 Days for this Season

Ok, so my boyfriend has been telling me about these dental white strips that are supposed to make your pearls look snow white and they're reasonably priced. Skeptical about the whole thing, I told him to try it first and if it works for him then I’d follow suit. Since I’m leaving to go out of town next week for a special occasion, I’d figure hey why not and I am here to testify to you ladies!..........................................

(Disclaimer: This is my first time using this product. I am not a representative or affiliate of this company. I am not in any form receiving commission based on what I am writing and nor am I making any promises or guarantees.)

Well………………………………… I started using the Crest white strips two days ago and I’m starting to notice a difference in the appearance of my teeth: they’re appearing WHITER & BRIGHTER!!!!! I should’ve expected this from the beginning since it clearly states on the pack “satisfaction guarantee.” It is economical (compared to seeing a dentist to get the work done) and so easy to use …….. NOT TO MENTION THAT YOU’LL SEE BETTER RESULTS AFTER 7 DAYS. So, if you have a wedding, graduation, or special event to this is for you. All you have to do is peel the strips, apply them onto your teeth and after 30 minutes you could dispose of the strips and reveal your whiteys!! I strongly suggest that you invest in a pack because a whiter smile does make a great difference – it also enhances your appearance as well. I put them on twice a day: driving to work and as soon as I get home. On the 7th day I’ll let you know whether or not this is the real deal!
I don’t know why I didn’t use this sooner – but I’m glad that I am using it period! I’ve always said that white looks great on everything – so why not buy it? And like the company says, “if you’re not satisfied mail in the product and your receipt and they’ll credit you a refund for your purchase.”

So far they really work. There are different types to choose from with different prices, but the whiter & brighter transformation of your teeth will seem pricele$$.

Fragrance of the Month: May

Yep ladies, it's that time of the month again -- no, not the one that comes along with cramping and bloating -- the one where I announce the essential scent that's necessary for this month. And it's definately my personal favorite: Gucci Envy Me.

Envy me is said to be created for the woman who demands attention --- and attention this will definately get you! This dazzling blend of sensual peony, jasmine, and pink pepper is melded with notes of sweet litchi and effervescent pomegranate and pineapple, and smoothed with soothing musk, white tea, and warm woods, is guaranteed to make her the object of desire.

This perfume should be called delicious instead of envy me because it'll leave you feeling yummy all over: and this is my testimony! This scent will leave your man spell bound and your friends envious. It's sweet but light and the same time. It's not a scent that'll leave you with a massive head ache after 30 minutes. This perfume is perfect to wear for the month of May. I wouldn't recommend giving this as a mother's day gift because you may end up using it more than mom. I do highly recommend that you get this for yourself. Get this if you don't want to smell like the next woman. I have yet to wear this perfume and meet someone in the same place with it on. You could wear this for any occasion --- even a romantic night home with your honey bun :)

A 1oz spray runs about $42 ............... Not so sure: try it before you buy it

Come on Ladies - it's *****Gucci*****

Hair Files: Case# 5508 Spring Curls

Let's make this hair season look flawless, effortless, and fierce! Try bumping up big, light, wavey spring curls. Since the temperature's rising - we have no choice but to go light this time; but why not do something that's exciting but not scarey -- Wild but not ghetto, easy to maintain and sassy at the same time. There's no need to hide your beauty under hair waves --- set your natural hair free and let your scalp breathe.

It's simple and easy to get the look: all you need is a big bumper or hot curler, oil treatment to protect both your hair and scalp from the harshness of the sun's ray, and a styling cream. If you have thick hair it may take longer to finish but you don't have to be a genius to get the look. Even if it doesn't look exactly like the picture - you can tease the hair or make the curls look loose as in the picture above with Beyonce.

No matter how long or short your natural hair may be - this style will work for you! Also, since it's a new season try adding something new to your personality by adding highlights to your hair. Before you decide to go darker or lighter, i'd suggest going to to see how the color will look on you. Either way, you're bond to look fierce!!

Throw some Bronze on that B..............ody :) Win a Free Bronzer!

Ever wondered how celebrities such as Mary J Blige, Alicia Keyes, Beyonce, JLo and Kimora Lee Simmons look like they were baked in radiance and how to get that glow? You can now stop wondering because I'm going to give you the juice! It's called a bronzer. Now you, too, can look like a golden goddess. Believe it or not, many ethnic women don't use bronzers because they think that it only works for paled & light skinned people........... (which is absolutely not true) the darker the skin, the worst the results, and that it'll harm your skin in some form or another. Thank god these are all myths. I've personally tried it on darker skinned women and it looked just as spectacular on them as others and I have yet to witness the negative effects. Using a bronzer is a good way to warm your appearance and add glow to it. Bronzers are intended to give you a radiant, shimmer glow in places that's usually exposed to sunlight........... FOR ALL SKIN TONES. You can use a bronzer in place of eye shadow or blush. Bronzers come in the form of liquid, powder, stick, mousse, and cream – to suite your bodily needs. I would recommend using a powdered bronzer when applying on the face and a liquid bronzer for the body. In a liquid form, it will easily distribute throughout the skin evenly - avoiding wasting the product and powder form would work best for the face because it won’t clog up your face - especially for those with oily skin. They're easy to use and wash off. The best time to use a bronzer is during Spring and Summer seasons (You don't want to make the mistake of looking like you've just got a tan in the dead of winter). It's perfect for going to the beach, going out during the day, and if you have an event to tend to in the evening that will expose you to a lot of lights (such as a dance, game, wedding, ect) - go for it. Don't waste your time putting it on if going to the movies.

Tips when using a Bronzer:
When choosing a bronzer – choose one that’s a few shades darker than yours – but not too dark. Too dark shades may look unnatural.
If you want to make your skin luminous, look for products with a subtle shimmer.
Apply the bronzer evenly as possible, so that your skin doesn’t give off an orange appearance. Never overdo it when applying: your skin will look unnatural.
Apply the bronzer on areas where the sun usually hits.
When applying, make sure that your application isn’t too heavy.
If you use a powder bronzer apply it with a big, round brush. Start from the center of your face and work outwards.
When using a bronzer keep your makeup as simple and natural as possible. Avoid applying too much makeup after you have applied bronzer. Keep your foundation to a minimum if you wear bronzer on your face, otherwise your complexion may look too orange.
The bronzer should be a few shades darker than your skin tone. Stay away from the orange tones - it’ll look unnatural and fake.
Wash your hands after application.
Avoid contact with eyes and clothes for at least one hour after application.
Use bronzer in place of blush, sweeping it over cheekbones will add definition to the face.

My Fav Bronze ---it works magic!!!!

Fragrance of the Month: April

And the award goes to ................. Incanto Heaven by Salvatore Ferragamo

This scent is of sheer bliss and happiness. It smells like Playful, feminine, and oh-so-chic—a fruity-floral fragrance that captures a colorful, lighthearted spirit. I fell in love with this scent immediately. Ever wanted a fragrance that would define you and remind others of you (once they smell it): well this is the one.

What a delightful new fragrance for women of all ages. Incanto Heaven awakens spontaneity and fantasy with light-hearted spirit and a fresh combination of grapefruit, pink peony and violet. A vivacious fruity floral bursting with life and color, Incanto Heaven is a bright interpretation of feminine elegance. It's perfect for both Spring and Summer. It's light enough to wear to work, sweet enough to wear on a date, and bold enough to leave a refreshing impression on anyone. I would recommend this to women of any age group.

Awake to spring with this scent

Face is First

As I previously stated - your face is your passport - it gets you where you're going and as shallow as this may sound ... it's the 1st impression that people have of you, so treat it as you would your life investment. Sad to say is that I've notice a lot of beautiful women who allow their faces to breakout or mistreat it. Why wear a designer dress that's flawless but allow your facial flaws to be seen or allow for blackheads and pimples to take over? As you would invest in giving your car quarterly maintenance, do the same for your face: infact entire body.... atleast 2x a year. One in the winter and another in the summer, because the severe change in weather can impose extensive damage to your face. It doesn't have to be expensive believe me... I, too, am on a tight budget and if I can you it so can you. Usually when I refer a product, chances are - i've already tried it and it definately worked for me, so there it is.

With that said, let's get started! The basics:
1. When washing your face don't use bar soap - it's intended for the body, not the face. The chemicals in it usually dries out your face and causes breakouts. I.E. Notice how whenever you change bar soap brands you get a pimple. Use only facial cleansers that are intended for the face ONLY!!! and if necessary, consult with a dermatologist before choosing any OTC or prescribed facial cleansers for those with extra sensitive skin.

2. Limit the amount of times you wash your face. Don't overdue it because what you'll be doing is drying out your face and ridding it of the natural oils that your face produces. For those with oily skin, I know that this may seem as the best method, but usually when you don't see results after a week - that means that it's not working so STOP! As before, an oily skin can be cause due to the change in weather, daily diet, ect so consult your Dermatologist. After washing your face, softly pat it when drying. Do not scrub it dry or wipe it dry.

When choosing a cleanser: READ THE INFO PROVIDED ON THE BACK. Just because it worked for me, your co-worker and your best friend, doesn't mean that it'll work for you!!! Everyone skin type is different. Do this: stand in front of the mirror under a high definition light (bright light - not dull) and examin your face. Look for blackheads, dark spots, breakouts, uneven tones, over exposed pores - which is what I'll refer to as crater face, ect. Write this all down and take it to your local beauty store or dermatologist. They will help you find the product that's right for you.

3. Protect your face. It's always exposed to the sun and must be protected at all time by using a Matte containing SPF (sun screen). Don't believe the hype people: sun screen is not just for Latina and caucasians to use. Too much exposure from the sun can cause you to age faster; causing wrinkles and damage to the skin. It's important to take good care of your skin now than to start when you're in your late 30's wondering where you're going to find money for a routine botox visit. Also,
whenever possible DRINK WATER AND SMILE. Drink water because it's healthy and helps bring out your natural glow and smile because it brings out your beauty. When you frown and make funny facial features - you're just adding potential wrinkles to your face, plus it's not attractive at all.

...........WITH THAT SAID.....................
The facial product that I use and IS CURRENTLY USING (this tells you that it's definately worth it) is Cosmedicine's Basic Skin Regimen. My friend bought it for me and I've been addicted ever since. Here's the story: One day I noticed that I had several pimples that grew out of nowhere. I paniced and rushed to the local drug store to purchase an OTC cleanser that would instantly work (without reading the product)and while I was asleep I kept scratching my face because it was irritating me and when I woke up the next morning, I had a rash that was out of this world. I called up my friend and she came through with the game plan. After a week of using the regimen the rash cleared up, and so did my face (and I didn't use it twice a day as recommended). Not only did it correct the rash, but it also evened out my tone. I am glad that this product lives up to it's name and officially hooked!!! Ladies you've gotta try this

This product definately works for me!

After using this product, you'll not only notice the change but you'll feel like a new woman. I would even recommend this for men. If you don't believe me or want to take my word for it, go to sephora and ask for a sample of the regimen and use it on a small area of your face. If it works - buy it immediatey and if it doesn't - well atleast you tried without spending a dime.

Here's a pic of me after a week of using the product eau de natural.

Bonjour my fellow Bloggettes!

Finally, a blog you can frequent that has vital information in both beauty and fashion for women of ALL COLOR. I started this blog just because of this very reason and my friend advised that I do so. I'm a young African American college student and found it difficult to find the perfect beauty and fashion blog relating to me. Let's be real: not all women can afford Gucci or Purple labels, so visiting blog sites that features just that would be useless. You don't have to spend a million dollars to look it. This site was designed to create an atmosphere where the everyday woman can go to find celebrity make over looks at a reasonable price and keep up with their daily beauty regement or start one. Every woman can and have the right to look beautiful and should put this into practice. Someone once told me that your face is your passport and I couldn't agree more! We as women need to take better care of ourselves and most complain about the expenses that comes along with it and I'm here to show you that keeping up your look isn't as expensive as you may think - believe me because I'm a BEAUTY INSIDER and you too can become one as well! I hope you enjoy the info that I will put together for you and please leave comments - I want to know what you think and how I'm doing!

Au Revoir!
