Fridays with Felicia: Volume 28

Fridays with Felicia: An intimate look behind the curtain as I share my favorite style/ beauty discoveries and ThisThatBeauty shenanigans from previous week


Dear Polar Vortex,

Please GTFOH. No seriously, you may go. I. Just. Can’t! My skin can’t. My body can’t. And oh, my baby (pictured below)…she can’t either. I long to take little Phoebe out doors and do Mommy & Me things, but alas, the weather is rude and will not cooperate.


Sigh. What’s a girl to do? Well, thanks to ESCADA Born In Paradise, I had the opportunity to escape to Puerto Rico, leave my worries behindĀ  and learn all about the inspiration behind the brand’s limited edition summer scent. This blog post spills the complete deets.


Before leaving for PR, she (me) got the EPIC blow out of life! With Optimum Amla products in hand, I made my way to the salon and achieved results like this (see pic below!!)…

And like a week later, despite the humidity of Puerto Rico, my hair maintained a smooth finish. Holy moly…go, Optimum Amla Collection! And with the help of my trusty Jennifer Behr Eos headband, I was able to get a few more days and a little variety out of my blow out…

Oh, and in case you missed it: I was quoted in this month’s GLAMOUR mag sharing an unconventional beauty tip. So if you get a chance to pick it up, please do :)

From time to time the good folks from various brands, PR companies, and marketing firms graciously provide product to ThisThatBeauty for editorial consideration. Much appreciated! However, ThisThatBeauty readers can take comfort in knowing that gratis product has never nor will it ever guarantee a mention on my little old blog. Simply put, I write about whatever I darn well please. Thank you very much!
