Hello! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I had been on the hunt for a highlighter/illuminator for weeks. Don’t get me wrong I loved my NARS hightlighter but I believe in changing up things once in awhile and trying new products. So this time I stumbled across the Josie Maran Argan Illumnizer from Sephora. The say’s it is an “ulta light skin brightener with a hint of bronze, giving skin a radiant, luminous, lit-from-within glow that lasts all day.” What I love about this product it is also doubles as a skin care product because it contains argan oil that conditions and restores skins softness. What brand of highlighters and illuminators do you like to use? Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Hello! Spring is almost here and I couldn’t be happier…I think I always say that when a new season is about to arrive hah. One of my favorite statement colors to wear this spring and summer season is MINT. It is a universally flattering hues, seriously it looks good on any skin tone! Mint is a stunning color that can easily be taken from day to night. It is light enough for day and dark enough that it can still look dressy in the evening. If you’re nervous about wearing this color then start out slowly how about trying out mint nail polish or maybe some shoes with hints of mint? Mint colored accessories are on my favorites this season it looks great paired with black or white dresses. Try it out and let me know how y’all wore you mint colored items I would love to hear or see it! Thanks for r3ading. Xoxo.
Hello. Hope everyone is having a good week! I am so glad tomorrow is Friday one of my favorite days of the week haha. As a Fashionista and Stylist my job is to provide my clients and blog readers with the tools to make your closet the best to fit YOUR needs not my wants for you. I know a lot of people think Stylists are a waste of money and we just want to make you clones of ourselves. That is absoluitely not true. Most of us truly care about our clients and just want to help them find whatever best suits theier needs and will help them feel confident. I have always said my job isn’t about you having to spend thousands of dollars. My job is to guide you, teach you to find your “fashion voice,” create a wardrobe that you can wear with confidence, and honestly if you have a budget I will work with it. Just because I choose to wear a lot of “loud” things does not mean I think my clients have to do that. I respect my clients wishes, needs, and wants. I just wanted to write a little post to clarify what my job is. Have a fabulous and fashionable week everyone! And as always thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Hello! Happy Almost Spring Time! I love that season so much, it’s warm enough wear a light jacket is perfect yet cold enough that you can pull of wearing ankle boots! Which brings me to the subject of my blog post: transition shoes. Let’s face it as much we would love to wear all of our shoes year around that is just not possible or very practical. As winter is coming to a close soon (well in Texas most likely) our shoe styles will have to change. It can a bit of a confusing time do your wear your knee high boots even though you don’t need a big coat on? The answer is no girl..don’t do it! Here are my picks for best transition shoes. Thanks for reading.
Ankle Boots: So stylish, look very cute with skinnies, skirts, dresses and even high waist shorts paired with tights.
Pointy Toe Ballet Flats: Your toes are still covered, the “point” dresses up the shoe more, and honestly goes with almost every outfit (maxi dresses/skirts exluded sorry).
Suede Booties: Beautiful night time shoes that replace open toed heels for the time being. I love these shoes paired with a blouse tucked into a skater skirt.
Oxfords: A cute version of the menswear look. They look very cute with skinny pants and skater style skirts and dresses paired with a letterman jacket or denim jacket.
Dressing up is so much fun but I know some women can find it more of a “chore” rather than “exciting.” Honestly the trick into changing that mindset is relaxing, and reminding yourself you don’t need to impress anyone. If you start to think of fashion as more of as a way of expressing yourself your mindset will change. For example let’s say you have a dress obviously every woman is going to wear it differently depending on their styles. A girly girl would probably wear heels and lots of accessories, a girl with more of an edgier style would probably pair a leather jacket and some boots, and a more casual girl would most likely wear a pair of dressy flats and minimal jewelry. Just remember when you dress up, wear what you want and what you feel comfortable in. Confidence and sexiness radiants in women when we chose to be ourselves, and let our own style speak through our wardrobes. Thanks for reading and keep being stylish! Xoxo.
Hello! Taking the time to take care of your skin is something that I think is very important. But I think it is something a lot of people tend to not realize how crucial it is. Your skin is bascially your greeting card to the world, it should glow, look refreshed, and healthy. We all have those nights where we are exhausted, had a long day at work, and want nothing more than to sleep. I get that but do not let that be a reason you don’t wash your face. Think about it you spent all day out in the world, full of germs, dirt, and what not. Do you really want to put that face on your pillow?! Even if you’re too tired to get out your Clarisonic and facewash then use a makeup remover pad to take off the dirt, makeup, and impurties from the day. Your skin will thank you that night, and in the future. Here are some of my favorite skin care products. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Hello! It’s official Pantone Color Institute announced the color of 2014 is Radiant Orchid. I’m excited because this color is gorgeous, feminine, flirty, and is the best mixture of sexy and sweet. Pantone says “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
I would like to celebrate how being single isn’t pathetic it’s more fun than most people want to believe! I have grown up to be an incredibly honest person, I have never really feared being who I am nor held back from saying how I feel.
When I was younger I had the tendency to run away from any type of feelings for anyone, I truly believed I wanted to be alone all the time. Of course at the same time I have always wanted to fall in love, I mean Disney and Bollywood was my life. The older I got the more I realized I was not scared of meeting the love of my life. Fast forward to my life now I am 28, have a career, live at home (no I’m not a loser), I pay for my life, have the greatest friends, and have a good relationship with my family. Yeah I live a good life..don’t get me wrong I get on Facebook at times and I see all these people getting engaged or announcing pregnancies. Does it affect me yes but does it make me feel bad no. There have been times where I thought “dang where did I go wrong should I be married as well or at least in a serious relationship?” But I always remind myself things happen when they are supposed to.
Of course the awesome phone calls and texts asking me “did you know “so and so” are getting married ..are you okay?” “No, let me hang up and go cry my eyes out.” Yes I am okay but your phone calls are making me feel as if maybe I shouldn’t be doing that good! Being single doesn’t mean you’re sad nor incapable of having deep feelings. Let me tell you I enjoy being single, I don’t have to share my bed with anyone, I can rent any movie I want, and I can eat all the candy I please without worrying my man will panic about how big my butt will get!
I believe in love but I also believe in being okay with yourself if you’re single. Telling me “don’t worry when you stop looking you will fall in love!” Um who said I was looking for it and who said you had the right to tell me anything like that? Just because I look forward to having a serious relationship and falling in love does not mean I am “searching” for anything all the time. Life tests us in so many different ways and every moment teaches how to handle it in the best way to fit our personal stories.
I know I will have my “happy ending” someday but in the mean time I don’t mind not having to share the remote, dating my career, and giving my nieces and nephews all my attention, but most of all never forgetting to love myself and making sure I know I am still awesome even without a husband. Live your life to your standards. -Soloni Behl
“Some steps need to be taken alone. It’s the only way to really figure out where you need to go and who you need to be.” -Mandy Hale
“Being single doesn’t necessarily make you lonely..it can challenge you to get to know yourself, it can push you to the point where you have no choice but to become the best version of yourself. And when that moment comes when you meet the love of your life you will finally be ready to face true love with no fear or hesitation.” -Soloni Behl
