REVLON COLORBURST....

 
Hello Happy Monday! Before, I wasn't really into make-up, I would often wear none. When your not use to wearing make-up , I would advise not putting a whole lot.....you may definitely feel weird. In gradually getting into wearing make-up, I really have fun wearing lip color and blush bronzer. What makes a woman beautiful is when she bares her face by wearing less make-up! For me, I'm all about the natural minimal looking make-up. Ultimately, you want people to think that you didn't try too hard. 

Today's post is all about "How to Wear....Purple Lip" with a tutorial on putting on Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Lip:

1. Start with a Bare lip and putting on foundation over your face. Add concealer to the lip that matches your skin tone, this helps with your lip color lasting all day. 

3.  Using the Revlon ColorBurst, you want to line your lips with the lipstick itself, before applying it all over the lips. Alternatively, you could use a matching lip liner. Since we are using the same lipstick to fill in the lips, there's no need to be exact.

4.  Keep repeating the process until you get to the desired level of purple. Next finish up your look with Bronzer blush and Mascara  for a simple natural look.

Have fun with wearing purple lip!!!!

I AM PERFUME.....

"I am is about claiming who you are head on with a light heart and fierce confidence"~Mission.

Hello Happy Friday, I hope your getting ready for the weekend, I wanted to share a perfume I purchased a couple weeks ago called "I am". I am collection is all about proclaiming your fate. It says that if you speak positive words you'll see positive results. I say I am blessed almost everyday, even though we want things to happen immediately like love, money, or a job opportunity...we have to say that we are blessed no matter what the circumstances things could be worse, we have to enjoy what we do have to appreciate what we'll receive! The collection I am blessed has such a sweet smell that just putting on a little bit is all you need. I love how it's so light and soothing, "In an instant, a fine fragrance brings us back to our essence". ...I am collection is a perfect gift to show and encourage by giving confidence to your wife, mother, best friend, family member, or even a co-worker.  "I am is a great perfume like a symphony that brings out my senses".

GRAFFITI NYC 2 of 4.....

Photos Taken by FotoSquad

WHAT I WORE: 
Rue21: Top 
H&M: Jacket & Cap
Target: Pants 
Groopdealz: Necklace 
JustFab: Bow Bag 
Nike: Sneakers

Hello Happy Wednesday! Another amazing photo from my photo shoot in NYC by FotoSquad. It was raining that day, but I still bared with the sprinkling rain. The photos came out really good, I wanted to capture the city of Brooklyn and the graffiti of the streets. We fashionistas wear a piece of art each day by creating new outfits in our closet. In reality, I'm a walking graffiti myself as fashion is my art!!!! If you want to be stylish you have to take the time to look your best. I try to plan out my outfits the night before. Depending on the weather, I plan accordingly. 

In planning your outfits here's some easy steps: 

1. Plan-The night before plan your outfits, with laying down possible looks that will work. 

2.Try something new- Put together an outfit that steps out of your comfort zone. If your too scared try guardedly with key pieces like a bold necklace, colorful top, neon shoes and keeping your whole outfit very simple that way you feel more comfortable with trying new trendy looks. 

2. Wear-Try on the outfits to make sure you feel comfortable, I know for myself I'll keep a piece because it has sentimental value. I had this skirt I didn't want to give away because my boyfriend at the time gave it to me as a gift. It clearly doesn't fit my body type that's when you need to give clothes to the salvation army or consignment shops.

3. Be Bold-Walk with confidence, when you put on an outfit and it makes you feel all happy. It makes you more happy when someone comments that you look very nice today. That means people are noticing that your being bold by trying new looks that look good on you!?!?!

So Plan, Try, Wear, and Be bold with any outfit!

SPRING TALK...


Hello Happy Monday! I wanted to share a lovely collaboration that I did with Fashion Blogger Jennifer over at Jen Fash Tips. We decided to work together in creating Spring looks. Check out Jennifer looks over Jen Fash Tips










Photos taken by David Linton 

WHAT I WORE: 
Forever21: Top & Clutch Bag
Old Navy: Cardy 
H&M: Skirt, Necklace & Sunglasses
Shoemint: Booties 

Jennifer and I decided to wear our best spring looks for spring! Since spring has officially started,   What does this mean? It means it's all about the pastels and pastels!?!? 
When choosing spring looks think about a blooming flower and the colors within that flower. Or just think about sherbet ice cream when putting together a flavor-able look? How I put this look together was recycling pastels from last year and reusing for this spring season. 
 Pastels are still in now and are the way to go for spring!?!?
 They literally work with any look. I choose to go with a green pastel top and cardy and taupe skirt and taupe booties. I wanted my look to be all about that "Spring is Here" and that introduces warm colors for spring! Anyway look nice and fresh with pastels and pick colors that are complimenting to a nice spring day.

What spring colors have you taken out of your closet?
Don't forget to check out Jennifer's blog for more photos at Jen Fash Tips.
