Kaylea Moss

Posted in Beauty, Curvy News, Loves It! on April 25, 2011 by miaamber

I was pleasantly surprised as I was perusing the aisles at my local CVS (a favorite pastime) when I saw a familiar face!  One of my favorite people and nicest models in the industry, Kaylea Moss has a new campaign for Dove Visible Care!

I’m super proud! Congrats, Kaylea and kudos to Dove for continually recognizing beauty at any size!

Keep up the great work!

XOXO,

Mia

Shaun Ross

Posted in Beauty, Entertainment, Loves It!, Pop Culture on April 6, 2011 by miaamber

Pop Star Katy Perry has a brand new, visually stunning video for her new single, “E.T.” featuring Kanye West.  The real star of the video is not West or Perry but model, Shaun Ross.

I had the pleasure of meeting Shaun a few years ago as we both stood on line to audition for BET’s Rip the Runway and we reconnected in hair and make up this past season of the show.

Shaun is simply beautiful and his personality shines even brighter than the incredible future he has undoubtedly cemented for himself.  He’s found a way to own what makes him different and use it to his advantage.  We could all learn lots from Mr. Ross!

I was looking for a way to rejuvenate my tired, cracked up, winter worn skin and purely by accident  at the local CVS, I fell in love!

Olay body butter with jojoba is amazing! Not only is my skin soft as ever but it has a nice glow to it to boot! I find that I don’t even need to slather on the lotion before I step out the door!

If body washes are not your thing I also have an old stand by product that I love to use at least once a month…

Bath and Body Works has a line of Aromatherapy products including a fantastic sugar scrub! The one pictured above is a calming sleep scrub but they come in a variety of therapeutic scents.  Be sure to choose a scent you love because it stays with you for hours!  With just the right mix of body oil and exfoliating “sugar” it’s using it is like having a spa experience in your shower! 

What are some of your skin savers?

XOXO,

Mia

I Whip My Hair…

Posted in Beauty on January 29, 2011 by miaamber

I get lots of emails asking me about my hair.  It’s no secret that as an industry professional, I often wear hair extensions and weaves in order to protect my natural tresses. 

My hair of choice? Wagman Hair. I find that their extensions blend the best with my own hair and the longevity of the extensions is unmatched by any I have worn in the past.

If you decide to try Wagman, please tell them I sent you and use coupon code Mia Amber RC4321 at checkout.

Happy Shopping and let me know what you think!

XOXO,

Mia

*UPDATE!!*

So sorry for not mentioning this the first time but the Coupon Code is good for FIRST TIME shoppers of Wagman’s AND via phone orders only.

Sorry for any confusion.

The beautiful, smart, talented and funny Kim Coles has rung in a new look for the new year by shedding her signature extensions in favor of her own luscious natural coils!

Now

Loves it!

If you’ve made a drastic change for 2011 I’d love to hear about it!

XOXO,

Griselangel

I’m trying out a new kind of post in an effort to introduce you to some new faces in the plus modeling industry while re-introducing you to some you may already know and love!

Introducing:  Griselangel.

I think she’s stunning and would LOVE to watch her unique, doll-like looks skyrocket her into the fashion stratosphere the vein of Supermodel Lily Cole.

Grisel and I are with the same agency in New York and she’s not only beautiful on the outside, she’s a really nice person, too!

XOXO,

Mia

Actress LisaRaye’s stunning daughter Kai Morae is the newest face of Apple Bottoms. She was shot yesterday by famed photographer Derek Blanks and here are a few of the leaked photos.

Proud mom LisaRaye was on hand to watch her daughter work.

I see bright things ahead for Kai and can’t wait to see her campaign.

XOXO,
