Leonisa Lingerie | Ring The Alam

I was approached recently by a lingerie, shape wear and swimwear brand by the name of Leonisa to review a few products of my choice on their site. After taking a look around, I saw that they had some serious shapewear options and great lingerie products to help suck in pretty much any and all bulges on you! Here’s a little synopsis of the brand:

“To women around the world, Leonisa stands for fun, stylish, sexy and fabulously fashionable intimate apparel, shapewear and women’s lingerie. It’s the favorite brand that women in 9 countries know they can trust for unmatched design, style and dependable high quality. Whether you’re shopping for beautiful bras and panties, body shapers that enhance your curves, or flirty swimwear that gets you noticed, Leonisa is the lifestyle brand that today’s woman relies on and looks for by name. No wonder the company sells more than 37 million garments a year.”

Who woulddaa thought! Anyway, shopping on their site was really easy and kind of fun, with their clean navigation and organized categories (#WebGeekAlert). After browsing around, I ended up choosing the Perfect Fit Boyshort Style Panty and the Long Time Favorite Magic Up Bra-Maximum Uplift to add to my collection of undies and bras! I just received my package and tried both items on asap, only to fall in love! The “Magic Up Bra” had awesome support while still being sexy with it’s lace and deep-plunging neckline. The “Perfect Fit Boyshort Panty” was silky to the touch and is the perfect undie to wear under all of my dresses (in case of heavy winds of course). There aren’t any seams in the panty either, so it felt super comfortable and fit perfectly (kudos to the name!).

I think Leonisa found a new fan. I’m not one to really spend too much time at lingerie stores for items, but their products are made with quality materials that really do the body wonders. Check out their site and they’re currently having a sale, so stock up on some body shapers, undies or panties! (P.S. they have a menswear section, so surprise your boyfriend with a girdle…or two haha). Thanks Leonisa!

New Lush Products!

April 7, 2013

Lush Products | Ring The Alam I’m on a kick to have some serious Adriana Lima hair. I’m talking long, voluminous, shiny ass hair. The length is getting there, but I wanted to indulge in some Lush products to get my locks ready for the spring and summer.

I picked up Shine So Bright ($9.95) which is a balm that you rub onto the ends of your hair to help repair those pesky split ends. There are a ton of fun ingredients in this (extra virgin coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter, fresh free range eggs), and I’m hoping it makes the ends of my hair more healthier looking!

The other product I splurged on is the R&B Conditioning Treatment ($22.95). The Lush associate tried it on my hair and it smelled so good that I had to buy it. Full of organic avocado butter, oatmeal, olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil, and candelilla wax, this product is so worth the $23 bucks it cost. It makes my hair super soft, healthy and smelling like I’ve been kissed by a Lush angel. Because of how conditioning it is, it’s really great for textured and curly hair FYI. I definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone!

There you have it folks – my reviews on the latest goodies to my Lush collection. I’m a huge fan of Lush, so let me know in the comments if there are any products I must try out!
