20’S INSPIRED MAKEUP

IMG_3247

Just uploaded to my channel is a 20’s inspired makeup look! I don’t typically do themed makeup, mostly because I’m afraid it’ll turn out too costume-y. But in this case it was fun challenging myself to create a wearable look incorporating a soft smokey eye and a deep red lip.

A FRINGE AFFAIR

I’ve had my eye on so many different fringe pieces lately… Bags, jackets, and even shoes. And it’s no wonder I’ve got fringe on the brain: It was very popular on the spring 2015 runway! So as a recent fringe magnet, I’ve been collecting a few fringe pieces for my closet.

Last  year I shared a pair of fringe booties from Carmen Steffens, and just last week I showed you some new pieces I’d recently acquired including a fringe cross body bag by Rebecca Minkoff, but this next fringe piece tops them all: The Exclusive for Intermix Fringe Leather Skirt. The minute I laid eyes on this skirt I just could not look away! It’s about as unique a design as I’ve seen in pretty much any skirt, and the way the fringe moves when you walk is just stunning. That’s when it looks its best is when I’m walking and you see the fringe swinging about… It’s definitely something to see! I don’t believe I’ve ever been so enamored with a clothing item and it’s all due to the movement.

CHOCOLATE LOVERS, UNITE!

Mmmm, mm! I sit here entirely too excited to write up this post. But who wouldn’t be when the topic is chocolate?!

If you’ve been following my YouTube channel, you likely know that the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is my absolute favorite. I’ve been using it for a very long time and haven’t strayed from it simply because it’s the perfect matte bronzer. It has just the right tone and it’s velvety soft to blend. But, of course, we come in all different shades, and though the Chocolate Soleil is a nice color for most complexions, it’s definitely not 100% suitable for all.

HAPPY INT’L WOMEN’S DAY!

quote

Just wanted to pop in and say Happy International Women’s Day! We live our day to day sometimes overlooking the fact that we take on so much in this life; so many sacrifices, so many challenges, and each time we come out stronger than before. To my readers, I wish you all the success you work so hard for. Being a woman isn’t easy, especially if you’re one who dreams big. (I hope that’s each and every one of you!) But for all that we endure, we also get to experience some of life’s most beautiful gifts.

I salute you, ladies!
