Get the look!

If you've watched the Grammy's this past weekend you no doubt love the glitz and glamour on the red carpet. But it doesn't just end at the fashion, but makeup is a huge part of "The Look". Makeup Artist Jessica Smalls lets us in on how to recreate Janelle Monae's Beauty Look she wore to the 2018 Grammy's! Her Inspiration: "I wanted to give Janelle a timeless and current look at the same time, so I decided to give her a Twiggy 2018 vibe."

This Sunday is the Big Game and with only days to figure out what you should wear to theSuper Bowl party, you may want to give it some thought. If you're a pretty big fan, you may want to buy an accessory like this Dooney & Bourke Philadelphia Eagles bag, but if you're just going for the food you might feel more comfortable investing to your closet as a whole. Trunk Club has a team of stylist to assist you in looking your best, not just for game day, but whatever the occasion.

Car Review: The Mitsubishi Outlander LE

January is almost over and I have to say its been a pretty good month. One of the highlights of the month was being able to review the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander LE, one of Mitsubishi's Crossover vehicles! I enjoyed running around in the Outlander, doing everything from day to day task to going out with friends and family.

The Philly Auto Show is Coming

The Philadelphia Auto Show will be back in town January 27 to February 4 and it's bigger and better than ever! I remember my first time going to the Philly Auto Show, maybe 5 years ago and wondering why I didn't go sooner. It's a fun event for all ages, whether you're in the market for a vehicle, or just want to see what's new in the world of automobiles. Special highlights this year include an enhanced Super Cars Display and robust Exotic Vehicles Display. Check out Super Cars like the Bugatti Chiron, Bugatti Veyron and Ford GT, along with Exotics like the Aston Martin DB11, Ferrari 488 Spider, McLaren 720S and Rolls-Royce Phantom, just to name a few. 

You'll even have the chance to get close and personal with your favorite famous vehicles from shows you love like the Mystery Machine from “Scooby Doo,” Tow Mater, K.I.T.T. from “Knight Rider,” the “A-Team” Van and cars from the “Fast and the Furious” and “XXX” series. This is just a taste at what the 117th Edition of the Philly Auto Show has to offer.

Weekend Getaway: Hershey, PA

Special thanks to Hershey for partnering with us on this post!

This weekend was the perfect opportunity to getaway and do something exciting. So we decided to head out to the sweetest place on Earth, Hershey, PA! I haven't been out there since 2010, so I was excited to see any new changes and old favorites that happened over the years at Hershey's Chocolate World. It's a great place to visit with the whole family, especially in the off season, when their amusement park isn't open.

#FashionFriday: Stuart Weitzman Sale

Sometimes when things are too good to be true, they usually are. Well here's the one case it's not. Stuart Weitzman is having an amazing sale that I think you should know about. You can find shoes starting at as low a second $188 and for a limited time get an additional 10% off of the sale price with code "ADD10". The hard part is choosing one (or two). If you decide on just one I would definitely lean towards one of their classic tall boot silhouettes with the ties, it’s a classic look from the brand that never goes out of style. Happy Friday and Happy Shopping!

#TBT: My Disney Memories - Food & Wine Fest 2017

If one of your 2018 plans include a trip to Walt Disney World, may I suggest attending their Food and Wine Festival that takes place usually at the end of summer and last until late fall. Since my family started going years ago, (over 10 years ago) it's gained popularity and they've extending the dates of the festival.

My favorite thing about the Food & Wine Festival is that I can eat "world the world" and try food and beverages from all different cultures. I always try to make it a point to visit a different station every time, but of course I have my favorites. Here's what made my Food & Wine list of 2018!

Beauty Review: 7th Heaven Face Masks

7th Heaven Facial Mask Review
Before my new year got interrupted with the stomach virus (#gross), I wanted to treat myself to a great facial mask from 7th Heaven! They were nice enough to send me a package packed with facial mask of all kinds, even one for my hubby. The first one I used was the Creamy Coconut containing Ground Cocoa, Coconut (of course) and Shea Nuts.
