Inspire Hope + $100 IKEA GC Giveaway

Devereux GA, charity, IKEA Atlanta, community outreach
Hi everyone!  Giving back is so important to me and one of the things I love about IKEA is their amazing efforts in giving back to the community. IKEA Atlanta is raising awareness to help our youth…our future. Please take a moment to read more about the Devereux Georgia Hope Event and if you are in the greater Atlanta Area I urge you to buy a ticket (see details below) to this charity event. Thank you in advance. Help IKEA help our youth #DevereuxGA.

Hope Event, Ikea Atlanta, Awareness, Devereaux Georgia

Details:
Devereux Georgia will host its Annual Hope Event on Thursday October 2, 2014 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.  The Devereux Georgia Treatment Network (Devereux Georgia), is part of the Devereux Foundation, Inc.  Founded in 1912, Devereux is one of the nation’s leading nonprofit behavioral health organizations with 13 centers in 11 states.

Since 1973, Devereux Georgia has provided new hopes, new dreams, and new choices to youth who are suffering from emotional and behavioral challenges brought on by mental illness, sexual exploitation, abuse, neglect, and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities.  The continuum of care provided by Devereux Georgia includes a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility, community-based treatment programs, Specialty Foster Care program, and a SACS-accredited school.  With Devereux Georgia’s help, youth develop the confidence and competency to achieve once-unthinkable goals such as literacy, graduation from high school, or the acquisition of basic job readiness skills to become successful and productive members of our community.

The event benefiting Devereux Georgia will be held at the Marietta Country Club, located at 1400 Marietta Country Club Drive in Kennesaw, Georgia. Guests will enjoy dinner, cocktails, and music along with a silent auction showcasing works of art created by Devereux youth. The featured guest speaker of the evening will be Lynn Garson, Esq., mental health advocate and author of the novel “Southern Vapors.”   Ms. Garson will also be joining nationally renowned child psychiatrist, Dr. Yolanda Graham, in a panel discussion on mental health issues and treatment.

7 Essential Fall Wardrobe Buys

Fall is finally in the air here in Georgia.  While tee shirts and shorts are still acceptable the mornings are a whole lot cooler.  I’m wearing a smile right now as I look out my window…air-conditioning off and windows open.  I have a few hours before temps hit 80 degrees and taking full advantage of airing out my house.  This post is totally sponsored by my mood right now. A lot of trends are returning but here are my 7 essentials I am excited about.

7 Essential Fall Wardrobe Buys

 

Parka: Love it for fall and it can be layered to be worn through winter. I was fortunate to receive a camo parka from a follower a few months ago and I cannot wait to wear it (I have been washing in hot water to distress it and looking to embellish it).

Sweater Dress: Great way to be warm and cute and I love pairing mine with knee-high boots.

Chunky Sweater: Yay! Hides all my issues. Super warm and fun to layer underneath with contrasting colors.

Animal Print: I prefer to wear animal print subtly via accessories or shoes. Leopard and snake print over zebra any day,

Skinny Sweatpants: On the fence about this but willing to try. Finding a pair long enough will be my challenge but I do like how it looks when worn properly.

Torn Denim: Yes, please.

Faux Fur: If you’ve been following me for a while you knoooooow I love fur. Yes, yes, yes. Faux fur allows me to be environmentally friendly and stylish. Love.

What are your fall essentials or new trend you want to try this year?

SO excited to for the launch of this line, named Stories…  on September 25th. I was reading all about it on People  and decided to share with you all here.  I have always loved Kelly Osbourne’s style…so fun and edgy and classy.  I love her style so when I first heard about the line I was online to dig up details and I was too thrilled to see the sketches above. Great pieces.  I look forward to seeing more when it launches.  I pray, oh I pray, the quality is good.  I read somewhere that she chose the same company that produces the Kardashian line, Jupi.  I know nothing about the quality of the Kardashian line so I wait to find out for myself.

Quick Facts:
sizing will be up to size 24
pricing will not change based on size
13 head to toe looks
pricing range is $55 to $170
will be available on HSN and Bluefly

Trending: Printed Denim Jeans

Who: YOU!
What: Printed denim.
Why: Eye catching detail and bold color contrasts make this trend so versatile.

Still here for this fall/winter season! Printed denim is a great way to be comfortable and make a fashion statement. I currently don’t own any printed denim but am seriously hoping to find a pair this fall/winter. I have been looking for just the right pair of camo jeans. The fit has to be on point. The black + white pair would be out-of-the-box for me but I’m open. Is this a trend you are currently rocking or open to trying for the first time?

{Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara} Review

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara, ReviewOh man, I was seeing this product all over social media.  I was too cheap to buy it to try so imagine my surprise when I was contacted to review it. ::insert jazz hands::

The kit comes in a pretty case (similar to an eyeglass case). I am a sucker for nice packaging so I was impressed with the packaging.  Inside was a tube of Moodstruck Transplating Gel and Moonstruck Natural Fibers.  At first I had my reservations…putting fiber on my lashes didn’t sit well with me. I naturally have long, thick lashes and was concerned this fiber would get in my eyes. Not an issue.

How to use: apply one coat of your regular mascara, let dry. Apply the Moodstruck transplanting Gel and while wet, apply he Moodstruck Natural Fibers.  Easy, right? I tried this mascara for a week.  I applied it liberally being conservative when it comes to beauty and still noticed a difference when I used it. I have seen photos where it makes a big difference if you have thin short lashes. Please take a few minutes to watch my short video:

Younique, Younique 3D Fiber Lashes. Review, Mascara, The Posh Blog

Pros: Easy to use and it does make your eyelashes appear longer and fuller. Pretty packaging. Removes easily. Fast delivery.

Cons: Application process adds minimal time to getting ready; not a lot of time but let’s face it, it’s not a one coat mascara (Tip from Sabrina: Don’t use any regular mascara underneath, apply the gel and fibres then seal with gel).Price tag is high but it is worth it. Not available in stores. (Some of these Younique reps go hard and can be annoying but you can order from Sabrina, she is professional and friendly without being pushy.  I will drop her link below.)

The skinny:  Would I purchase this? Yes. While I won’t use it daily due to the time I limit myself to in the morning, I do feel fancy when I apply it because I know my lashes are hitting’.

If you have been waiting to try this please order your first set here or here. Sabrina is friendly, professional and ships quickly.  Any questions for her directly?  Please email Sabrina here.

Please drop your comments and any questions for me below. xox, Pascha

I received this product in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.

a note from me + quote of the week

Happy Friday, y’all!

It has been a long week for me.  I didn’t go to bed before midnight every day.  So much to do and so little time.

This weekend I hope to rest, cook, bake and spend quality time with my kids. If I never leave the house I will be okay, you ever feel like that?  Have  great weekend and enjoy the quote of the week; I adore Anna Wintour. xo, Pascha
