Vitabath is a leading consumer favorite and the epitome of luxury in a bottle. Vitabath offers a significant amount of products for a desirable spa like experience at home and stimulating fragrances and lotions. 

Vitabath is dedicated to their products, as you will truly encounter a beautiful scent that’s stimulating and so inviting to all your senses, leaving you with a remarkable bath experience. 

All Vitabath products are rich with antioxidants and fortified with vitamins that will leave your skin smooth and glowing for a healthier look.  

Lavender Chamomile and Pomegranate -Blood Orange body washes are the two items we’ll review.

These body washes are from Vitabath’s sulfate & paraben free collection. The Lavender Chamomile body wash has a soft delicious scent and the Pomegranate & Blood Orange has a pleasing burst of orange smell that is enjoyable. I was sent the 2 fl. oz bottles to try out and I still have some contents of the product remaining. These are also sold in a 12 oz size for $7.95, good deal! These two products lather well and work great on all skin types. One important factor to note, the label states these products are for adult use only. 

Vitabath does offer gift sets and bundles that are reasonably priced and since the holiday season isn't too far away, these products will be great as gifts.

Oversized Coat Trend for Fall/Winter 2013

Have you tried the oversized coat trend? Or are you hesitating to try this trend because you feel it is not the right style for you? I have some simple solutions to share with you on how to wear this season's hottest trend.

For those of you, who are petite, don't hesitate to buy this style of coat because you are on the shorter side. You can still wear an oversized coat that has the right look and you will appear perfectly stylish. Although petite myself, I jumped on this fashion bandwagon and took off to find the right coat for me. 

At my local mall they didn't have any oversized coats in stock so I had to choose another route and I ordered mine online. It was a chance I took but I happened to find a coat that I really liked. 

ASOS has so many great options to choose from but the coat I chose has some great details and flair. The ASOS Vintage Style Cocoon Coat is made out of a wool-blend fabric and has a soft-textured finish almost reminiscent of faux fur fabric but nicely done however. The length of the coat is calf length on my height of 5'5 but can vary for anyone who is taller or shorter. The pockets on this coat are deep enough to keep your hands warm so you don't have to wear gloves. Overall, the coat is very warm, trendy and great to have this fall/winter season. 

The best way to style this coat is to wear it over many layers, wear it with the sleeves rolled up, or style it with a scarf. I love how Elle shared some of the street fashion trends of London for an oversized coat. Even though these women are different shapes and sizes they seemed to have coordinated their outfits in such a way that you don't pay attention to how large their coat is, but how great they look.
