Here is a swatch of the lavender and pink. As you can see the colors are pigment but the lavender is slightly more opaque. These pencils are smooth and the application process is easy. 
The texture definitely is a bit powdery, I suggest using these with powder foundation.

Affordable Spring Wardrobe Refresh

Spring Wardrobe Refresh with Cheap Online Shopping

599Fashion has affordable fashion picks

Affordable-Spring -Wardrobe-Refresh from 599Fashion via www.gabyramos.com

 It's springtime and that means spring cleaning our wardrobe, Although it's very fun it can get a little expensive at times. Well I'm pretty excited to let you know about 599fashion,
a shop that is great for cheap online shopping, all of their items are under $10!!!!
I was a bit skeptical at first since I thought to myself well that's a very low price for clothes but, I was excited to give them a try and surprisingly enough I really loved some of the items I received. It is always great to find affordable clothes that are good quality and giving your wardrobe a refresh.

Jeans from 599 Fashion
Well my favorites from 599Fashion were their jeans and trousers, both a great addition to my spring wardrobe and fit great. These were my favorites because a good jean for short girls (5ft) are very hard to find and add on curves, yep pretty impossible. 
But both the jean and trouser fit amazingly and they are the lowest price I've found. Not to mention these are both high waist so no back was showing when I sat down. 
I used the Solid High Waist Pencil Fit Jeans (above) for an event coverage recently. Price: $8.99

Affordable trousers from 599Fashion via www.gabyramos.com
Trousers from 599Fashion
Here you can see the High Waist Slim Fit Trousers,
I paired them with this top for a great night out outfit.
The fit on these was great, stretchy fabric and still very dressy. Price:$9.99

Affordable blouses from 599Fashion via www.gabyramos.com
Blouse from 599 Fashion
 On another occasion I wore this ivory blouse from 599Fashion and it was definitely perfect for this dressy look. What you can't see is that is the back of the blouse is criss-cross /open so when I took the jacket off it definitely went to a sexy look.  Price:$5.99

Affordable Jenas from 599Fashion via www.gabyramos.com
It's those Jeans again
The one thing I do have to warn you about 599Fashion is that the rotation on the items is really fast so if you see something you definitely have to be quick and purchase. This is how they maintain their low prices but, not to worry if you get something you're not in love with they do have a fairly easy return policy. On to the quality, the material of the clothing was good so you definitely won't be getting anything to cheap or falling apart.


 Well I am on my way out for today, I hope this post helps you save a couple of dollars in
your wardrobe spring refresh. I think you can tell I love these jeans lol.
Like always leave me a comment below and let me know if you order from 599fashion.

Spring into Fitness at Fashion Outlets Chicago

Fitness & Fashion at the Fashion Outlets in Chicago

Fitness-Fashion-Outlets-Chicago-www.gabyramos.com
Well it's officially Spring and that means getting ready to hit the gym and workout for that Summer body, lol. One of my favorite things to do is shop for workout clothes and my go to is Fashion Outlets Chicago. I love the outlet because there are many store options for shopping and they have some of the best prices. Last month I was invited to attend a Fashion and Fitness event which included some bites and a tour of some of their stores that carried fitness clothes and accessories. I was very excited because the Fashion Outlets Chicago is already a family favorite.

David's Tea-Fitness-Fashion-Outlets-Chicago-www.gabyramos.com
 Once I arrived I was greeted with some awesome treats from some of the businesses in the mall.
Here is the first one that caught my attention, David's Tea. The cart was very cute and not to mention the steeping mug.  I was able to taste the Strawberry shake tea and it was delicious.

Freshii-Fitness-Fashion-Outlets-Chicago-www.gabyramos.com 

 Another great spot was Freshii,  I decided to try the Mango Tango as well as the Metaboost. I really enjoyed both and I will definitely be taking the kids there for the smoothies. I was also able to find out that they do food preparations that you can pick up on your next shopping trip, which is pretty cool if you live in the area. 

LeCreuset-Fitness-Fashion-Outlets-Chicago-www.gabyramos.com
Now the last food stop was Le Creuset, this was a cool stop because they had Chef Corey Rice from Season 8 of Master Chef. He made a healthy dish using a Le Creuset wok. Master Chef is one of my favorite shows and I thought it was cool to see Corey using a kitchen item that I can buy at the Fashion Outlet for a great price.

Now on to the shops that carry fitness/gym clothes.
Don't go to the gym or workout?  no worries, athleisure is in so all the options below are perfect for a trip to do groceries or a quick errand run.
Nordstrom Rack-Fitness-Fashion-Outlets-Chicago- via www.gabyramos.com 

First stop was Nordstrom Rack, one of my favorites already. 
Well these two outfits were the major focus, can you tell which was my favorite?
I actually really liked the grey/black outfit, I can see myself wearing the leggings and the jacket.
PUMA-Fitness-Fashion-Outlets-Chicago-via www.gabyramos.com

The Second stop was PUMA, which I was excited about since I hadn't noticed it before.
PUMA manager talked about how all their items being especially made for their outlet store. Generally outlets are overstock from the bigger retail shops but these items are specific to them.
I was able to go back after our tour and got these 2 t-shirts.

lululemon-Fitness-Fashion-Outlets-Chicago-via www.gabyramos.com

The last stop of the day was lululemon, They sell yoga clothes.
I had actually never heard of this shop but I am glad I visited, they actually hem the pants there in case you need them shorter. I am short so this is a great added service to have.
There was also a mini yoga session going on.

Have you visited the Fashion Outlets lately? What are your favorite stores?
I think my some of my favorites are Puma, Nordstrom Rack, Saks off Fifth, Guess and Nike.
I hope this helps guide you to some great stores at Fashion Outlets Chicago for your gym wear needs. 

XO, Gaby
