Hello and happy Monday! I don’t just love the spring season because of the beautiful weather I also love it because it’s the one season where you can get away with wearing prints and pastels every day of the week. There are so many different ways that you can wear them as well. Try a sold t-shirt tucked into a printed pencil skirt, or a floral blazer paired with a blouse and black skinnies, or printed pants with some blush colored pumps! Try it out, if you are nervous trying prints I would suggest trying printed wedges to get your feet wet first then go from there! Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Hello! Applying mascara properly is important, you don’t want clumps, raccoon eye, and of course smearing everywhere! When you are taking the wand out “swish” it a bit in the bottle to smooth out the applicator. By doing this you aren’t risking getting clumpy mascara. Wash your wand at least twice a week with a brush cleaner. I have tried most brands and spent lots of money on some and not so much on others. I have favorites in all kinds of price ranges. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
*Makeup Tip: It is important to clean your eyelash curler EVERYDAY. Take a tissue and some soap and just clean it off. You risk accidentally ripping your eyelashes off when there is residue on your curler.

Happy Sunday Funday! I hope everyone is ready for a new week and has a happy but fulfilling one! Anyways, spring is just around the corner and I am so excited! I love playing with makeup and hair colors and I am excited to say goodbye to dark colors and say hello to pastels! Thanks for reading. Xoxo. Here are my five favorite spring must have items:
Purple Lips- This color is eye catching, looks beautiful day or night, and goes with any skin tone.
Illuminizer- This is the highlighters “cousin.” What differentiates this from a highlighter is that this can be mixed in with your tinted moisturizer/foundation, worn as a bronzer or used as a highlighter by contouring it on your face.
Floral- No this is not just meant to be on your grandmothers curtain. This is a elegant look cute on dresses and tops. Remember If you’re on the petite side get a smaller floral print and if you’re taller wear a bigger floral print.
Pastel Skinny Pants- Beautiful, elegant, and works at the office and at night. I love this look, it looks good with pointy toe flats for work or pointy flats and for night so cute with wedges.
Color Block Bag-No “matchy matchy” rules apply here. Go with your bad stylish self! It’s fun and can really look cute with any outfit!
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.
