2 Lipsticks I Can’t Stop Wearing

2 Lipsticks I Can’t Stop Wearing

A month or so ago, I decided to freshen up my look with some new lipstick colors.  For me, the easiest and fastest way to switch up my everyday makeup routine is to incorporate a a new lipstick or two into the mix. I have to admit though that I'm not usually one to wear [...]

I love this outfit, mainly because I love this top. It was a StitchFix delivery from a little over a year go so I can not, for the life of me, find it anywhere on the internet (sigh). I love the way white pants, shirts, and shorts compliment my Summer complexion.  However, white anything really [...]

Versatile Vest

Versatile Vest

My #1, all-time favorite, go-to fashion accessory is my olive utility vest.  Bring on the cooler temps, 'cause I'm anxious to premier this baby! I wear it at least twice, if not three times, a week mostly throughout the fall, winter, and spring months. This vest helps me maximize my wardrobe by styling one item [...]

Makeup Talk: Drugstore vs. Designer

Makeup Talk: Drugstore vs. Designer

Makeup is makeup, no matter the price tag.  If the application is flawless, does it really matter how much it costs? Something to think about: A company like L’Oreal, who is is the world’s largest cosmetics and beauty organization, will put out similar products in different packaging for you to consume depending on your budget. [...]

Well hello, August!!  Yaaas, I'm wearing jeans and I'm not sweating my butt off! These cooler temps have me excited for Fall.  Basically all divine and beautiful clothing is made for Fall!  Which has totally got me thinking, "A cardigan sweater would go great with this ensemble!"

Get your pa-JAM-as on! Sleepwear’s my latest obsession

Get your pa-JAM-as on!  Sleepwear’s my latest obsession

Permission to hit snooze as many times as you want! This past Sunday, I didn't change out of my PJ's until about 3pm, nor did I wear any makeup.  It felt great to just relax and enjoy a low-stress day for once, something I need to do more often.   Sweet and flirty meets cute [...]

How I trim my side-swept bangs

How I trim my side-swept bangs

Ok, so that's a really terrible and scary shot of me about to trim my own hair, but the reality of it is that it can be scary to cut your own hair, especially when you have no cosmetology training whatsoever which is why it's best to leave it to the professionals!  Now, I'm not [...]

Step Up Your Fashion Game With These HOT Wedges

Step Up Your Fashion Game With These HOT  Wedges

Wedges give me a feeling of being taller but with much more comfort than typical heels.  My short stature definitely benefits from the extra height and leg elongating effect, plus they're killer chic and I love that they're sexy in a casual, subtle way!  I would much rather wear wedges other than stilettos any day. [...]

An open letter to my childcare provider(s)…

Dear Childcare Provider(s), Just 12 short weeks after the birth of my children, I reluctantly and timidly left my children in your protective care.  Forgive me for being an emotional wreck that first day.   I didn't sleep the night before that dreaded day, and I arrived for drop off sooner than I should have [...]

Floral Fashion- Floral Inspired Summer Style’s I Can’t Help But Love

Nothing says "S U M M E R" quite like floral printed, well, anything!  I love the feminine, soft color pallet of warm weather clothing.  Give me all the sheer, floral printed nudes, whites, and blush toned clothing and I'll be set. To look really current, the way to wear this look is head-to-toe.  But [...]

You can never go wrong with denim shorts and a lightweight, neutral tank top, especially during the scorching days of Summer! This is one Spring and Summer fashion trend I hope never goes out of style because this is basically what I live in all Summer long.  They're my closet essentials for warmer weather. ' [...]

Natural, Full Eyebrows

Eyebrows are the frame of our face!  Trust me, you just need them!  They're the finishing touch to everyone's face. See what I mean?  Like any beauty trend, eyebrows have gone through a number of phases.  First they were bushy, then everyone went through a hairless phase (put the tweezers down please!), and most recently, [...]
