Spring is in the air and my nails are now dressed for it! Hope everyone is having a good week so far! Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Hello! It is time to put away the dark, vampy colors and bring out the pretty colors for Spring. As the sun is back in full force our clothes tend to start to move towards the color and softer sides of the color spectrum. For Spring 2015 pale pastels, neutrals that remind one of the outdoors, and “mild brights.” Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Hello! As the sun is finally making its comeback so our as I like to call it “sunny clothes!” The one thing I love about “street style” is people get to incorporate their style into runway looks/trends. For example: on the runway most everything is over the top you could see a model how the designer wanted her portrayed. But you could see the exact same outfit on the street styled completely to that persons wants.
Some of my favorite trends for this Spring are fringe, overalls, and “all over red” aka red suits. I love all these looks because they are daring, chic, and grown up. The fringe can be boho but sophisticated, the overalls give a relaxed yet stylish vibe, and the red suit is bold and sexy. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Hello! During the harsher weather in the winter time our skin tends to suffer a bit and needs some extra TLC. Taking care of your skin is very important and people tend to underestimate how crucial it is to create a day and night skincare regime. Your skin is basically your greeting card to the world, it should glow, look refreshed, and hydrated. Dry skin is aging skin, so cleanse, refresh, clarify, and hydrate those beautiful faces! Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Happy Sunday everyone! I bought some new MAC lipsticks this weekend and I cannot wait to try the out! I tend to stick to more nudes, pinks, and brown hues. I have naturally deep pigmented lips that have a purpleish/brownish tint to them so when it comes to lip liner I tend to buy purple and brown toned liners to keep my looks looking plump and natural. Sidenote: My favorite MAC lip liners are Spice, Cork, and Soar. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Steps for applying Lipstick:
1. Take a warm walk cloth and exfoliate your lips. Then moisturize with a chapstick (I lost EOS in Sweet Mint).
2. Line your lips with a universal liner (this will keep the colors from shifting and fading).
3. Now line your lips with the lip liner of your choice and then finally you can add on your lipstick!
Hello! 2015 is finally here and soon winter will be ending and spring will be upon us! I am so excited for the newest spring trends and how I am going to tie in the newest styles with my clothes from last year. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.
Shirt Dresses- It is a classic shape but now with lower waists, and some have slits. I love this look for night or weekends! (I would wear biker shorts under mine to be a lady just saying..) Pair this look with wedges or sandals.
Gingham- It’s all about the tiny check for this spring. It sexy, glamorous, and fun. Try paring this white skinny pants or with a black pencil skirt.
Polo Tops- Bring out your inner prep! This would look cute with jeans or shorts. To give this a more chic vibe put your hair in a topknot or curl your hair.
Kimono Style Trench Coats- These are between a robe, proper coat, and a kimono. It’s a cute, slouchy, and relaxed look. I would belt them to give a a pretty silhouette.
Military Greens- I love this olive hue oh so much! Wear it all season and even into summer! This color looks good on any skin tone and is good for any age group!
