Heavy on Fashion Review & Giveaway - Spa Sonic*



Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! I am so happy to bring you my latest review. There are tons of skin care systems out on the market but Spa Sonic is affordable and works great! The Spa Sonic skin care system includes 4 attachments- 1 face-and-body polisher unit, 2 small brush heads for use on your face, and 1 pumice stone. The Spa Sonic is a great affordable price and available at many major retail stores including Target and Costco. 


You can win your very own Spa Sonic on Heavyonfashion at http://heavyonfashion.blogspot.com/

I never was a huge fan of facial polishers but the Spa Sonic really changed my mind. Spa Sonic has become one of my favorite beauty tools because it is easy to use. Just pop in 4 AA batteries, choose your attachment, and push the switch. I also love that Spa Sonic face and body polisher is very easy to hold especially when I was using it on my face. I found that Spa Sonic really helped to improve my complexion. I also love that the attachments are gentle on my skin. Spa Sonic was a mini spa treatment for the home. No Appointments needed!



My final grade for Spa Sonic is an A. I love that Spa Sonic is so easy to use and portable. The only thing I wish that Spa Sonic had was a carrying case for travel. Other than that, Spa Sonic Face and Body Polisher is great for all my beauty divas and gurus especially since it is cheaper than other cleansing systems. 

Thanks to the divas and gurus at Spa Sonic, 
You can win your own Spa Sonic Face and Body Polisher!
Enter today!

Heavy on Fashion Reviews: Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub*

A photo posted by Malanb (@heavyonfashion) on



Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! Thanks to the beauty mavens over at iFabbo, I had a chance to review Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub. Scrubs are great for removing dead skin from your body. Dead skin makes your skin looks dull and lackluster. Doing a scrub at least once a week is great for your skin. One great scrub to use is Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub for my sensitive skin divas and gurus. Perlier is a known for their great beauty products so I had high expectations for this scrub.

A photo posted by Malanb (@heavyonfashion) on



When I first opened Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub, I love the smell. Absolutely delicious and light. The Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub comes in a great size jar (6.7 fl oz). The only complaint I have is that the scrub does not have as much texture as other scrubs, that was a bit of a downer. Due to the lack of texture, I feel that this scrub is a great addition to a beauty regiment for a diva or guru with sensitive skin.

 I love the scrub is thick and the color. The color of Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub reminds me of the ocean in the Bahamas. If your looking for a smoother scrub than I would differently aim for Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub. I also like that you do not need a huge amount to have your own spa day. The Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub retails on HSN.com for $25.00! Thanks to iFABBO, you can now get $5.00′s off your Perlierpurchase on HSN.com with code iFabbo5

Heavy on fashion Reviews : Sage Lifestyle*


Hello, all my fashion divas and gurus! I am so happy to bring you another fantastic review, this time from Sage Lifestyle. Sage Lifestyle was started by Sage Machado, a  jeweler, clothing designer, perfumer, boutique owner, artist, and entrepreneur! Sage Machado is a woman of many talents and used her talents to create a fantastic product!  Here are my thoughts on some fabulous products from Sage!

8 oz Candle - Amber
First, I tried out the 8 oz candle in the Amber scent. I really loved the scent, very earthy and warm. Great for any season but I find it refreshing during the fall and winter seasons. Many candles that I encounter do not have such a memorable scent, well Sage Lifestyle candles are powerful and unforgettable. The 8oz Amber candle retails for $56.00. 

3 oz Topaz Travel Candle
I love the Topaz travel candle. The scent is charming, light, and sweet thanks for the 5 variety of vanillas embedded in the scent signature. The 3 oz candle also comes with a lovely candle holder and a great for a gift, especially for the holiday. I really love that Sage Lifestyle candle has no Parabens, no Sulfates, no Synthetic dyes, no Triclosan,  no Phthalates, and no GMO. The 3 oz travel candle retails at $26.00.


Onyx Roll -On Oil
My favorite from the Sage Lifestyle collection is the Roll-On oils. I feel in love with Onyx. It is earthy, sexy, with a tropical island feel. Literally, when I put on onyx, I am ushered to a private beach in the Bahamas at night with a full moon and a great cocktail in my hand. I love the oil holder, very cute. The size of the Onyx Roll-On Oil is great to put in a clutch bag or even your back pocket. Onyx is one of the best oil scents I had in a very long time! The Onyx roll-on retails for $45.00

Heavy on Fashion talks to Nataly Aponte


Hello all my fashion diva and gurus! You love jewlery...I love jewlery. I am happy to bring to you a fantastic Brooklyn based jewelry designers and craftswomen, Nataly Aponte. Nataly is launching her next collection: The Matchstick Collection. The Matchstick Collection is her largest, and also most varied with uses of fine metals such as yellow gold, sterling silver, and citrine, as well as gems such as garnet, rubilitie, topaz, and more. Here is a look at Nataly's latest collection and How Ms. Aponte started as a jewelry designer

Here is Heavy on Fashion talks to Nataly Aponte!


Photos Courtesy of Nataly Aponte

Heavy on Fashion:  Where are you from? 

Nataly Aponte: I'm from NY. Born in the Bronx and my family moved to Larchmont when I was 5 years old.

Heavy On Fashion: Describe the general process you go through to design and realize a piece of jewelry.

Nataly Aponte: I'm usually inspired by a gemstone, color, pattern, or material. Sometimes furniture or a well styled interior. Simple shapes and nature can get my wheels turning. I also have a passion for ribbon and knotting. Most of my larger pieces start there.

Heavy On Fashion: How would you define your city's jewelry?

Nataly Aponte: NY is edgy and modern. There is constant reinvention. Materials are always being pushed to the limit. Each designer can have their own take on materials. You can walk around all day and see variations of one common denominator. I love seeing an interesting piece of jewelry on someone and wonder, who made that?

Photos Courtesy of Nataly Aponte


Heavy On Fashion: When did you realize you wanted to become a jewelry designer? 

Nataly Aponte: At a very young age. I began making those colored woven plastic string bracelets they teach you in camp and never stopped making and creating since then. My aunt gave me a box of leather swatches she had from a shoe designer she worked for. I loved the leather, texture, and colors so much I decided to make earrings out of them. I folded, cut, glued, and jeweled them up in my grandmothers house and gifted them for Christmas. This box traveled with me for years up until art school. It became my palette until all the scraps were gone. My aunt still has her earrings!



Heavy On Fashion: What are some of your proudest accomplishments as a designer? 

Nataly Aponte: When I run into someone who's wearing one of my pieces and I cannot stop starring at how great it looks on them. Part of me adorns them. That's a huge feeling.

Heavy On Fashion: How would you define your personal style? 

Nataly Aponte: Eccentric, eclectic, vintage meets modern. I'm pretty glamorous!






Heavy On Fashion: What's your favorite part about conceptualizing a design? 

Nataly Aponte: When I have one idea for a piece and I can instantly see other variations unfold. Its all there, I just have to quickly get moving with a raging fire!

Heavy On Fashion: What do you hope to have achieved in the industry, 10 years from now? 

Nataly Aponte: Nataly Aponte=matchsticks! The girl who creates fire and then some...


Heavy On Fashion: What does fashion mean to you? 

Nataly Aponte: Your own style, periods that inspire you, colors and materials that resonate with you, things you feel good in. Not what's trending, that's kinda like following a seasonal look book. Unless you're into the trend but always try and put your own stamp on it. Mix it your way! In a city where black is a staple, you can be in head to toe black but its the accessories that truly define you.

I would like to thank Nataly for doing this interview

Heavy on Fashion Talks to Maya Persaud of Lotty Dotty

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus!  I love introducing new designers to all my divas and gurus especially all my little fashion divas and gurus in training. So for all my mini fashion divas and gurus, this interview and post is for you! 

Lotty Dotty has developed a new interactive T-shirt concept that allows one to change the look of one’s T-shirt by using 3D detachable parts.100 T-shirts in one, Lotty Dotty T-shirts and handbags feature a screen-printed figure, reminiscent of a paper-doll, on the front of the T-shirt/bag, with a sewn-on Velcro bathing suit on which a variety of mini designer Velcro-backed “outfits” can be attached and detached.  The outfits are designed by talented up-and-coming clothing designers from all over the world.The Lotty Dotty design team is based in Paris, France.

Heavy on Fashion: Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from? What's your educational background? 

Maya Persaud: I was raised in Hawaii and Maryland. I studied French Literature at University of Maryland and the Sorbonne in Paris and have a Masters degree in Social Anthropology of Development from SOAS University of London. I worked in the fashion business as a model for a few years and then worked for a few fashion magazines in ad sales.  I also worked for NGOs and volunteered with several charities.  


Heavy on Fashion: What was the first article of clothing you ever designed? 

Maya Persaud: A pleated skirt


Heavy on Fashion: How did Lotty Dotty come to be? 

Maya Persaud: Lotty Dotty is a collaboration with many young artists involved. Mini outfits are creations from young designers worldwide. The idea comes from Paper dolls.  


Heavy on Fashion: Where do you get your inspiration? 

Maya Persaud: From popular culture, Paris, travels


Heavy on Fashion:What are some of your proudest accomplishments as a designer? 

Maya Persaud: Coming up with the idea of Lotty Dotty and developing the technique to make it possible

 Heavy on Fashion:Where do you see Lotty Dotty in 5 years? 

Maya Persaud: I am interested in Social enterprise. I would like to develop a sustainable company. My goal is not to make loads of money, but to develop a company that is "socially conscious" I would also like to continue to collaborate with young designers and create new products....I have a few ideas ;-).




Heavy on Fashion: How do you describe Lotty Dotty style, and how is it different or not from yourself? 

Maya Persaud: It is very playful. I'm still a kid at heart so love to follow the work of various artists that develop the mini clothing from various themes like "Alice in Wonderland", "Christmas" or "Fairy Princess".

Heavy on Fashion: What makes you unique from other designers? 

Maya Persaud: I think every designer is unique as each has his/her perspective which stems from life experiences. However, the interactive apparel design  is unique and is protected under design patent. 


Heavy on Fashion: Where can readers find out more about you and your work? 





Heavy on Fashion: Finally, what does fashion mean to you? 

Maya Persaud: Wearing fashion is about expressing individuality. We choose what we buy and what we wear andwhat we wear says a lot about who we are.Fashion is also a form of art and expression. There are many young designers and established designers whom I admire such as Alexander McQueen who was a true artist. Lotty Dotty is a platform for young designers who do not have the means to produce and show a collection. They have a carte blanche to create designs for our T-shirts and are credited on our website...

Heavy on Fashion Talks to Deb Miller of Hugrz


Hello all my fashion divas and Gurus! I love shoes. I also love changing my look at a whim. Yes I am a bit indecisive when to comes to my shoes. Especially when it comes to my shoes. So when I heard about Hugrz, I was in fashion heaven. Hugrz allows you to change your ordinary boots and booties into anything style on the planet. Best part is that Hugrz is made in the U.S.A! So without further ado, here is Heavy on Fashion Talks to Deb Miller of Hugz

Deb was previously a PR director and not- for-profit fundraiser who then discovered her true passion was for design. She had no experience building a company, but she threw herself into it and learned everything she could.  By the fall of 2010, she was ready to introduce Hugrz™ to the market.  She started in metro-Detroit and online, and then branched out to the rest of the nation in the fall of 2011.  In 4 short months, Hugrz™ could be found in over 100 retailers in the USA as well as Austria and Canada.   This year, you will find Hugrz™ in more than 160 stores in the USA, as well as an expanding number overseas.

Here are a few swimwear suggestions all my fashion divas and gurus!

For all my Athletic Divas, check out LeMar Violet Print Halter with Hipster Bottom. It is great for flattering your tone body while creating some curves with the tropical print and the tie in detail. 

For all my larger posterior divas, set your eyes on Blue Lagoon Halter Maillot One-Piece by Verano High. The deep neckline will draw focus on to the top, giving your body a more symmetrical look. 

For all my larger bust divas, you have a friend in Canyon Beachwear. I mean there are not many places where you can find swimwear tops that go up to a G cup. Yeah, you read right, a G cup! I love Crisscross Underwire One-Piece by Aerin Rose. The underwire bra provides tons of support. 

For my round belly divas, the Goddess Boyleg One Piece by Seafolly is an ideal choice. The ruched midsection helps to flatten the tummy and provides a hourglass figure. The sweet heart neckline is a classic and sexy look. Think 1950's  with a splash of modern realness. 


Check out all the Canyon Beachwear has to offer you for your next vacation
