IMATS NYC 2014: Haul

The International Makeup Artists Trade Show (IMATS)
is a big yearly event for makeup artists, makeup enthusiasts and all beauty and makeup lovers!
At the trade show there are different stages were guest speakers share their tips and tricks on different makeup looks. There are models dressed in their beautiful costumes and wearing amazing makeup walking around done by such talented makeup artists! And of course a lot of makeup/ beauty products on sale!

For a first timer like me, being in a huge makeup event like this was overwhelming to say the least.
To not make this post super uber long, I have decided to cut them into a three part blog series:
 (1) IMATS Haul; (2) My Total Experience and (3) Tips I found helpful when going to IMATS. 
All posts should be up by this month so if you only want to read just one of these topics, subscribe to get updated once that post is up!

Review: Dottie Scarf from FRAAS

Sample provided by LiptonPublicity

If you follow me on Twitter (@_j4ckie_) and/or Instagram(@_j4ckie), where I would post my "OOTDs" (Outfit Of The Day) you will notice how I love to add as many colorful or mix patterns of accessories to my basic black tees and jeans look, including scarves!


Scarves don't have to be black or white or beige to make it go with every outfit you wear! Scarves can definitely be your statement piece when you just want to wear your basic shirt and jeans! A great example is this Dottie Scarf from FRAAS!

Cate & Chloe Subscription + GIVEAWAY *Close* !!!

Sample and Giveaway sponsored by Cate&Chloe

I am always on the lookout for the next beauty/fashion monthly subscription box out there. So when Cate&Chloe- a jewelry subscription box, reached out and offered to give one of my readers a chance to try their subscription, there was really no reason to say no! 


I may have a lot of black and gray clothing pieces in my closet but my accessory drawer overflows! From dainty necklace pieces to bangles to statement earrings and stackable rings of mixed metals! I have bought them from flea markets to antique shops to boutiques and online stores. I love to accessorize and you can definitely expect me to over-accessorized when I step out of my house! And so this is one box I am excited to try!

Review: Hask Argan Oil & Keratin Protein Hair Products

Sponsored by Brandbacker

I haven't colored my hair for 2-3 years now. It's been below-the-chin-length long for as long as I know. The last time I rocked a bob cut was back in my early college days.



Maintaining long, healthy hair is pretty much like a must for me and I would love to keep it that way as long as I can! My grandma had long silver locks and I'd love to rock long silver locks too in the future! 
So when Brandbacker was offering to review HASK Argan Oil & Keratin Protein Hair Products, I am really glad I got to test these products out!
