I am so excited to be headed back to NY this weekend for New York Fashion Week! This will be my second time going up there for fashion week. I will admit–last year was overwhelming for me! I love NY and I go several times a year, but NYFW is no joke! I feel like the pressure is on…to be skinny, to be fashionable, to have flawless hair & makeup, and everything else. To help my NYFW experience be a breeze, my blogger friends and I teamed up again to take New York Fashion Week by storm.
Follow my girls Christina of LoveBrownSugar.com, Jessica of GlamazonsBlog.com , Danielle of TheStyleAndBeautyDoctor.com and I as we make our way from Lincoln Center for shows to blogger parties and to other special events all over the city!

We teamed up with some awesome sponsors too!
So since I recently lost weight, I have a hard time shopping for clothes. Well, not really a hard time shopping! I am buying TOO many clothes lol..But sizing is always an issue! We hooked up with RentTheRunway.com to dress us during fashion week. If you aren’t familiar with RTR, it is an amazing site that let’s you rent designer dresses for a small fraction of what it is worth! (I’m talking dresses up to thousands of dollars!) Best of all, when you rent a dress from there, you get a 2nd size of that dress for free 🙂 AND…you also can get a 2nd style of dress (of equal or lesser value) for $25! What a deal! So that means that I get options to my door and I can decide when I try them on which ones I want to wear. Since I will be in NY for a week, I made sure to get a ton of options, making sure to get some day to night dresses and dresses for the evening. I even picked up a bracelet to rock with some of the dresses since they rent accessories too! I am too excited to show you all what I picked out (with the help of my friend Trina of TheBabyShopaholic.com Thanks girl!! )
Next up is EDEN BodyWorks! As a huge fan of EDEN, I am so excited to have them on board for the #NYFWcrawl. In fact, as I write this I have their Jojoba Monoi Conditioner in my hair. I am a fan of all of their lines, but I particularly am really loving their recent set: Coconut Shea products for twist outs and wash & gos. I will be getting a weave this week for 4 weeks from Limelight Extensions, and can’t wait to try out their products with the extensions. Check out my favorite EDEN BodyWorks products below:
Have I told you how I feel about Shea Moisture recently?!? I am loving their hair products and especially their body products. Shea Moisture is such a well rounded brand offering items for your hair (all hair types and TONS of product options), body products and even face products. I will definitely be bringing a ton of SM products with me to NY to use! Make sure to look out for our Make It Through Fashion Week Kit from Shea Moisture and find out how you could win one!
