Posh Product Review: Honey Pot Fresh

AB Guest Post

I’ll start by saying that this was quite a different product review. I am used to receiving natural hair products, bath and body products, and makeup to review. But the team at Honey Pot Fresh sent me over a sample of their Lavender Feminine Wash for my “honey pot”! Beatrice Dixon developed this product to prevent vaginal infection, encourage pH balance, and aid natural vaginal immunity with 100% Natural Plant-Based Ingredients.

Features & Benefits:

· Achieve a Healthier, Happier, Cleaner, Honey Pot in 4 Weeks

· Keeps the vagina fresh and clean, omits odor

· Prevents vaginal infections and balance insufficiencies such as Candidiasis, Bacteria Vaginosis and Urinary Infections

· Promotes pH Balance, which helps restore moisture and helps to relieve dryness.

· Aids in Natural Vaginal Immunity.

My Experience:

I must say that I was excited when I read the product label and could pronounce all of the ingredients. I am aware of the ingredients I use on almost every other part of my body--why not check out what I wash my lady parts with? I used the product for three weeks: it lathered really well and I experienced absolutely no irritation. My own “honey pot” was left feeling clean and refreshing. And I would imagine that this product would leave your honey pot amazingly clean during your cycle as well. I think this is a great product to try and I definitely recommend that you check it out!

The Honey Pot is available for $14.99 at www.thehoneypot.co and $9.99 at WholeFoods.

Nail Klub & Dresses with Modcloth

Though I hadn't had as much time in a while, I generally love experimenting with nail color and nail art. So I was super excited when Modcloth asked me to participate in their Nail Klub and Dresses Challenge! 

Coordinating your nails and your summer dress might seem a little too matchy matchy, but I think it's a fantastic way to stand out (just take a look at how beautifully the Modcloth team paired custom nail art with these cocktail dresses)! You're guaranteed to look polished and totally original. As I scrolled through their massive dress selection, thinking about which one would work for me, there were a few maybes--but one stood way out: the Watercolor Me Happy Dress! First of all fit and flare dresses are oh so perfect for my shape, but I also loved all the bright colors--they scream summer! This just seems like a dress that's guaranteed to make one happy, no?

I also felt like this print was one I could easily emulate on my nails. With such a graphic print, it was something I could just have fun with, and the colors could just co-exist playfully without being perfect. I loosely interpreted the flowers and shapes, making my nails more about a simple white base, and then adding great color than anything else. 

colors used:
OPI 'Flit a Bit'
Sinful Colors 'Cream Pink'
Francesca's Collections 'Lime Light' (similar color)
Zoya 'Breezi'

After adding my base coat, I put on one thick coat of Alpine Snow and let it dry thoroughly. Then, with an angled eyeshadow brush, I used the additional colors to add the flowers, and to swipe on swatches of brights in varying patterns (rinsing the brush with water in between). I wanted it to look almost like paint splatter. I let that dry thoroughly as well and then added a top coat. 

How do you think they turned out?

I can see wearing this dress/nails combination for a great daytime event like a bridal or baby shower, brunch or an early dinner with the girls. And the nails could also be paired with boyfriend jeans, saucy sandals, a graphic tank and a statement necklace. 

Which Modcloth dress would inspire you to create fun nail art for summer?

Soulful Beauty Chat | Posh Event Recap

Have you ever attended an event where the energy was just so sweet and positive that you left feeling better than when you arrived? That's what it was like at GG's Soulful Beauty Chat in DC last weekend. It was held at a super cute cafe, Culture Coffee, which happened to have some fly graffiti on the outside, and the best pineapple smoothies you can imagine on the inside. 

A few weeks ago, GG asked several women who are authors, poets and/or bloggers to join her for an afternoon of sharing whatever was on their spirits. I am not usually the "get up and bare your soul" type, but because my bestie was asking, I agreed. 

I read an edited version of my Q&A from my Soulful Beauty feature at GG's blog, All the Many Layers. And I needn't have been worried--my piece felt like "me", not like I was trying to be like anyone else in the room; and it was well-received by the other women. That felt good! Not sure I'll be doing it again any time soon, though. LOL

The other women who read, spoke or sang included: SherylShefonRae, TyeceSafaLea and Alexandra (Alex_Elle, whom I have been following and inspired by on Instagram since forever, and it was such an honor to meet her in person!)

I am so happy to have been in the room with such beautiful, soulful, strong feminine energy. And I'm so proud of my friend for stepping out of her comfort zone and trying something new--and it turned out well! I'm sure she'll be hosting another soon, so stay tuned at her blog for more details!

My Style // Paint the Town Pink

style - dress: Nordstrom (similar version with a saucy back here) | 
sandals: Audrey Brook by way of DSW (also seen with a maxi dress here and a fab white A-line dress here) | 
necklace: Francesca's collections (in different colors here) | 
bag: Louis Vuitton Speedy (also seen here) | 
scarf: old (but super cute Kate Spade one here! | 
sunnies: Aldo (bolder tortoiseshell pair here) 

If you've been here before, you know that I adore all things pink. It's such a bright and bold color that it can't help but elicit happy feelings. So when deciding what to wear for GG's Soulful Beauty Chat, where I was to do a soulful reading in front of a room full of strangers, I felt I needed a little extra boost of confidence.

Though bright in color, the shape of the dress is extremely simple, so I opted for bold, complementary accessories. This bejeweled statement necklace has quickly become my fave! And it worked perfectly, snuggling right into the frock's round neckline. Finally, I kept the shoes and bag neutral to offset the rest of the bright color. I think it turned out pretty well! The style ended up working perfectly for the event, as well as an evening of running errands, and dinner with my Young Man. I may have been a bit overdressed for the mall, but... whaddyagonnado? 

What do you wear when you need an extra boost of confidence, or want to lift your mood?

Posh Decor // Dream Vanity

Great mirrors and proper lighting are a style savvy girl's best friend when it's time to get ready for those posh events. And there is something about a vanity that feels ultra chic and vintage--a throwback to the dressing tables of Old Hollywood starlets like Joan Crawford (Mommy Dearest--favorite movie EVER). I haven't yet created the perfect vanity for my bedroom, but if I were to do so, it would look a lot like what you see above: clean, simple, practical--and above all, glamorous.  

Decor shopping site, One King's Lane, has got an amazing inventory of  pieces that fit the bill! I adore their Lenoir mirror because of the subtle curved detail of the frame, and it pairs perfectly with other furniture with glass + metal detail like the Heartley console table and the crystal table lamp. Notice how the pattern on the accent chair almost picks up the shape of the top of the mirror? I just love how completely different pieces of furniture can come together and feel so cohesive. And of course, my vanity would be incomplete without the perfect red lipstick, and my favorite fragrances, stored on a simple pastel tray. 

If you're in the market for beautiful furniture and home accents, I recommend checking out One King's Lane. And they've got a large selection of mirrors for creating your own dream vanity! Which one would you choose?
