Heavy on fashion review - Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream*

A photo posted by Malanb (@heavyonfashion) on



Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! I am so happy to bring you another great new product courtesy of iFabbo.  Today, I am reviewing Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream. When I first opened  Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream, I loved the thickness of the cream. Many hand cream are thin these days so it was refreshing to use a great think hand cream.


I also love that Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream will last me an entire day. I have very dry skin so finding a great lotion is a must in my beauty routine. I have to say I like Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream. I love the scent, lily of the valley mixed with Rose petals and shea butter.  The 6.7 fl oz bottle is a great size too especially for the Perlier line. 

I would suggest buying Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream and add it to your Spa at Home routine. It is a great addition to use when you have some time to yourself and want to feel luxurious. 

You can buy your very own Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream at http://www.hsn.com/products/perlier-shea-butter-with-white-lily-hand-cream/7540392

So without further ado here is Heavy on Fashion Events - Day 3&4 of New York Fashion Week #VZWNYFW


Day #3

Day 3 of my New York Fashion Week time started with 4 runway shows! Yes, You read correctly 4 runway shows. The first show I attended was The Christian Collection.  This collection was filled with bold prints and vibrant colors. Check out the S/S 15 collection here!



The Next Collection was the Warda Haute Couture S/S 2015 Collection. This collection was full of an elegant gown with wonder detailed lacework. There were some great wedding and mother of the bride dressed in this collection. You can check all that Warda Haute Couture Collection has to offer at http://www.wardahautecouture.com

With some Baked by Melissa Cupcakes in hand thanks to the gurus at Tumbler and Tipsy. The show was full of vibrant color and funky style. I also loved the Amanda Lepore was the finale of the show! She is so much fun and a great reminder of what fashion is about, being creative and having fun! Check out the latest from Tumbler and Tipsy collection at http://tumblerandtipsy.net/








Day #4

On Day 4, I began my fashion filled the day with a Nolcha Fashion Week Media Lounge party filled with some great innovative brands including Ploosh Hippo Purse, EVA SHAW DESIGNS, and much more! The Nolcha Fashion Week Media Lounge party was at the Empire Hotel! 



Alex and Ani's Founder, Creative Director, and CEO, Carolyn Rafaelian, hosted a meet and greet at Bloomingdales on 59th street.  Alex and Ani launched a new Charity By Design Little Brown Bear Charm Bangle created exclusively for Bloomingdale’s in support of the Child Mind Institute, an organization committed to transforming mental health care for children everywhere. Alex and Ani will donate 20% of the purchase price from this charm to the Child Mind Institute, with a minimum donation of $25,000 between September 2014 and December 2015. I am always for fashion with a cause! To support the Alex and Ani Little Brown Bear cause go here!




Finally, as my time at New York Fashion comes to an end, I partied like a rock star! I attended the Ok! Magazine New York Fashion Week party at the VIP Room in New York City. The party was full of celebs including the Hilton Sisters ( Paris and Nicky!), Reality tv stars Aviva Drescher, and a ton more. Like serious so many I forgot! There was also tons of brands in attendance including  Morgan Taylor providing uber cute manicures, Minx Moscato was in hand, and DJ Yo-C was killing the turntables! The party was so good, I didn't want it to end but we all know the saying. 
All good things come to an end including fashion week. 




I had a ball this season of New York Fashion Week. I would like to thank Verizon for being my tech sponsor for this fashion week adventure! I would also to thank all for the fab invites.

Heavy on Fashion + Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 = Runway Bliss (Event Sponsors)

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! Fashion and technology are having a wonderful love affair and this lustful love was seen all over New York Fashion Week. Every fashion editor and blogger had  the latest smart phone in hand, a tablet in their handbag, and a DSLR camera hanging around their necks.

Even the fashion accessories on the runway were tech geared like Rebecca Minkoff fashion forward smart bracelet, where you can check you email or social media account.  Elie Tahari’s collabo with the iPhone 6 and the infamous Iphone 6 dress. Google Glass collaborating with Diane von Furstenberg,which is crazy! Even Moschino and Nicholas Kirkwood have teamed up with Samsung to create some killer phone cases for the Samsung Galaxy S5. 

Fashion and Technology are here to stay so it was just a matter of time when Heavy on Fashion would get in on the game. I am so happy to bring you a look at my experience with the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5.

Heavy on Fashion + Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 = Runway Bliss



Thanks to the lovelies at Verizon, I was able use the hottest phone on the market right now, the Samsung Galaxy S5.  I fell in love with the Samsung Galaxy S5 huge touch screen 5.1” Full HD sAMOLED Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 Touch Screen Display. I am a huge fan of Gorilla Glass because it is durable and you don't have worry about tons of potential cracks. 

The Samsung main camera has 16 MP which takes great photos and video with tons of editing technology. I was able to transfer my photos from the phone to my computer very easily and I was able to email all my videos very easy. I was able to take some killer shots. Check them out at https://www.youtube.com/user/TheMalanB/


I also love the sleek style of the Samsung Galaxy S5. This phone smooth and has a stylish look that will go with any outfit. The phone was extremely light and I was able to get some of my favorite apps on the phone with tons of room to spare. As you may or may not know, New York fashion week is not just inside the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tents at Lincoln Center. There are tons of shows and events all over the city. As a blogger, I have to have great reception all the time in order to post the latest photos and video of the moment. Fortunately, the Verizon network worked well for me. No problems!





Check out my video of Korto Momolu S/S 2015 Show. I used the Samsung Galaxy S5 to create the video and the slide show. My shoots came out fabulous!

Over all my experience with the Verizon Samsung S5 was great, powerful, and stylish.

I would like to thank the Lovelies at Verizon for being the tech sponsor for this season of New York Fashion week !

I believe that you can never go wrong when you add an elegant necklace to an outfit. The Mary "Motherly" Necklace is great example of such a piece. The Mary "Motherly" Necklace is simple yet fabulous donned in silver plated with several lovely cubic zirconia stones. The simplicity of this necklace is great for wear. I love to pair this necklace with a classic look. The Mary "Motherly" Necklace retail for $115.00.

Check out these love stud earrings! They are big, classic, and full of glam. I mean nothing stays glam like a pair of CZ studs. The Olivia "Diginity' Studs are light yet detailed. I loved the detailing around the CZ stone and how they shimmer in the light. These earrings are full of great elegance that pair well with the Mary "Motherly" Necklace.  The Olivia "Dignity" studs retail for $125!
