When In Doubt Put a Bow on It!

Nail Contributor Amy put together two of my favorite things and created this super adorbs mani using Zoya Dove as the base with the new Maybelline Bleached Neons for the Polka Dots. I just love Polka Dots and Bows. I find that cute little dainty  bows can really polish off and outfit and make you look chic and sophisticated. Right now I’m totes in love with Kate Spade and we all know that brand is “all bow everything”. Here are some of my favorite items with bows from Kate Spade below!

Why I’m no Longer Ashamed of Shapewear

    Shapewear is not new to me. While I didn’t always own it I have vivid memories of watching my Grandmother get ready for church in the morning, squeezing into something she called a “girdle”. She said she wore it because it helped her look better in dresses, she compared it to my slip (you know that thing women don’t wear anymore). Women may no longer wear “Girdles”, but they definitely wear “ShapeWear”. ShapeWear is a growing trend in enhancement undergarments and with the fashion industry vanity sizing everything it’s almost a must.  Shapewear isn’t a must for everyday…

Summer Drink Series: Southern Porch Sipper

I’m a southern girl at heart. I love big yards, large porches, and sweet tea. Now that I’m up north there’s absolutely none of that unless we move way out into the burbs and build our own dream home.  Some days I like to pretend that I’m at my dream home. So I  sit on my small back porch and sip a cocktail while watching the lightning bugs glow. Today’s Summer Drink Series cocktail is the Southern Porch Sipper 2 oz Absolut Apeach 4 Pumps of Torani Blackberry Syrup 3 oz of Orange Juice 3 oz of Cranberry Juice Mix…

Jane Iredale tries its hand at BB Cream for the Women of Color

[button link=”#” target=”_blank” color=”default” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”center”]Press Sample[/button] Lets talk BB Creams today. For Women of Color they are practically non existent. While there are brands that have shades that are made with Women of Color in mind the reality is that there is usually only one or two colors that are supposed to fit a diverse range of skin tones. It’s as if beauty brands aren’t listening to our laments about how we would like a product that works just as well for us as it does for our lighter counterparts. One of my fave companies Jane Iredale has…

Need a Mint?

[button link=”#” target=”_blank” color=”default” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”center”]Affiliate Links[/button] This weekend I decided to go for the Monochromatic look. Mint green and Teal are some of my favorite colors. It’s taken every inch of me not to incorporate the colors all over my house. When paired together, the right shades brings about this lovely Monochromatic look that’s not overly matchy matchy. I even took the trend all the way to my nails with two Mint colors from Gelish that I am absolutely loving right now. I scored a complete Gelish Polish Starter kit complete with the curing lamp for only $69…

Maybelline “The Nudes” Palette Review/Swatches and Give Away!

  Ohhh Wee!!! My nudes have been leaked!! I heard rumors that Maybelline was launching a large size palette but when it comes to brands like this you can never be too sure . I spotted this palette while shopping the beauty aisles at my local Bed Bath and Beyond.  Maybelline The Nudes Palette comes in a sleek black case with a window that showcases a mixture of 12 matte and shimmer eyeshadows. The palette retails for $9.99, I feel this is a great deal seeing as two quads can run almost over that much. On the back of the…
