A Great pair of Jeans Always Completes my “Uniform”.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Levi’s® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. If you asked me to describe my style it could easily be done with two words, “Comfy Cute.” Don’t get me wrong I’ll throw on some pumps and slay an outfit in a heartbeat, but for the most part, I want to look good and feel good at the same time. I don’t have enough time to pay attention to trends or worry about what other people are wearing. I just want to wear comfortable things and look nice while doing… View Post

My Chic and Budget-Friendly, Succulent Terrarium.

Purging has to be one the absolute best things that I’ve done this year. I didn’t exactly Kon Marie my home, but I did get rid of massive amounts of “clutter”. I wanted my home to reflect calm and peace which is how I’m striving to live my life.  We deal with so much stuff in our daily lives, from work, bills, and family drama that I no longer wanted to walk into my home and be bombarded with massive amounts of stuff that made my world feel that much more busy.  So, after I got rid of practically all the… View Post

Nars Cosmetics Summer 2016 Color Collection on Medium Brown Skin.

Nevermind the fingerprints all over the sleek black Nars packaging we’ve all come to love, you’re only going to be interested in what’s on the inside as I’m sharing with you some of the items from the Nars Summer 2016 Color Collection! When the Nars Cosmetics Summer 2016 Color Collection was first revealed we all went crazy over the boxes illustrated by LA-based Greek painter Konstantin Kakanias . I was kind of bummed when those cute drawings of the girls living their best lives on vacation didn’t make it on the actual cases, but at least we got some bomb… View Post

Must Have Red-Orange Lipsticks for Medium Brown Skin!

We all have that one signature color lipstick that we like to wear. For some is a bold and sexy red and for others, it’s a soft subtle nude. I always thought my go to color was red, and then I went on this stint where I was all about the nudes because who doesn’t love a good nude (see my favorites here). Now I still love a good nude, but after trying out the Sleek VIP Lipsticks I realized that I may have found my “spirit color”. It was almost like I didn’t choose the color the color just choose… View Post

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

You all know that I love a good quality lipstick, but what I love more is when you find it in brands that you would have never even thought of trying. I have a very diverse makeup collection, but there are some brands that I walk past in the cosmetic section without even given a second thought, but after trying out the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks that habit is about to change! The Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks come in 38 yummy shades and they sent over four shades perfect for spring and summer for me to… View Post

How a Pair of Levi’s® 711 Jeans gave me a Confidence Boost.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Levi’s® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Confidence. It’s something we all have though most of us seldom utilize it. Confidence is an attribute that, when employed, provides us with the faith and trust that we can do whatever we set in our mind. So many women fail to reach their true potential in all areas of life because they lack the one thing that could propel them to heights beyond their wildest dreams. Many people are surprised to hear me say that I wasn’t always confident in some… View Post

My Name is Melody, and I’m a Fauxtrovert

I’m sharing how I use #Listerine in my life as a part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™. All my closets friends will you tell you that I’m a fauxtrovert. Fauxtrovert (adj): the act of being a fake extrovert. (n): someone who is outgoing only when they have to be. I can’t help it. I’m a introvert trapped in the life of an extrovert, and while everyone is making plans to go out and have fun after work all I’m thinking of is how awesome my couch is going to feel while I read or catch up on missed TV… View Post
