Outfit of the Day : Playing With Fabrics

Guess what guys!! It was over 50 degrees outside today and I did not know how to act! I couldn’t wait to go outside and just feel the warm sun on my skin.  Today I decided that the theme for my Outfit of the day would be playing with fabrics so I went with lace, pleather and suede. I accented this look with my new Alexander Wang Rockie Duffel bag that I am absolutely in love with to ad a bit of color. Compared to last weeks Outfit of the day  where the photos were ubber awkward how do you think… View Post

Must Have Beauty Books and Videos

How do you like to learn about Beauty and Makeup? Most people turn to youtube, but I’ve always been the type of person that likes to curl up with good book or a movie and just indulge.  I’ve always been into Makeup but I really didn’t turn to books until I started working as a MUA while living in North Carolina. Though it came out after I left North Carolina my favorite book of all time has to be the Makeup Your Mind Express Yourself by Francois Nars. What I love the diversity of this book and how it uses… View Post

Maybelline Dare To Go Nude Color Tattoos *Limited Edition*

  Maybelline Color Tattoos.. I’m addicted, obsessed, whatever you like to call it. Did you see this heart I made out of them (click here)? Recently Maybelline launched a new set of Limited Edition Color Tattoos all in the nude family. This collection is appropriately called “Dare to Go Nude” and pairs well with their Nude Cheek Stains and Lipsticks. There are 6 new color tattoos in the collection that give you a wide range of nudeness. So this post wouldn’t be too long I created a chart below with the Color Tattoo and swatch next to it. The colors… View Post

Outfit of the Day: Weekend Edition March 1st

It’s funny, before I became a PhD student I was all about looking cute, fashion and accessories and the whole nine. Now that I spend most of my time in the dark room singing the songs “bands will make her dance” as I wait for the film for my Westerns to develop I choose sweat pants over fitted jeans and my oh so comfortable Bearpaw boots over a cute pair of booties.  I’ve decided that on Saturdays I’m going to try my best to actually get dressed and go somewhere and by doing this do a weekly outfit of the… View Post

Bye Bye Dry Itchy Scalp! Thank You Darshana Natural Indian Hair Oil!

[button link=”#” target=”_blank” color=”default” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”left”]Sample Provided[/button] I love Ayurvedic hair products. I’ve been using them since I decided to go natural in 2009. For the past couple of months I’ve been pre conditioning my hair with Darshana Natural Indian Hair Oil and I can honestly say that it has definitely changed the way my hair feels. Natural hair, especially 4B-4C type hair has the tendency to look a feel dry. What I love about Darshana is how noticeable the difference is afterwards, the best thing is my dry itchy scalp is no more!! *cue gospel choir* My hair… View Post
