Smokey Blue

Hi all, just thought i'd drop a quick post and share the make up pictures from this post(You've probably seen them if you are on my instagram).
Anytime, I use extremely dark eye shadow, it looks like I have a black eye. So, my goal for this look was to make dark smokey eyes work for me. I did not use any special technique but I think the look worked out this time around. I am still so terrible when it comes to eyebrows, so y'all are going to have to forgive me.

Enjoy...

Travel Therapy: Paris


Paris has always been one of my dream destinations, and when my friend and I started planning the "very much needed vacay" I mentioned here, it was at the very top of the list. We spent two nights in Paris, but since we planned to visit Brussels(Belgium) from Paris, we only had one full day to spare. Our hotel was very close to the Eiffel Tower and it was one of the first stops we made. We knew that we were not going to see much of the city if we explored on our own, so we took one of the "hop on, hop off" tour buses. The tour bus was a good idea, and I definitely recommend it to anyone with limited vacay time. It was indeed a great way to see the city, visit the major sights and learn about the history through the headphone lecture. In addition to the Eiffel Tower, we rode down the famous "The Avenue des Champs-Élysées", we saw the Grand Palais, Arc de Triomphe, visited the Notre Dame Cathedral, and even went to The Louvre to say hello to the beautiful MonaLisa. I was in awe of the city and my camera kept clicking. Below are just a few of the pictures I took.

That's all for now.I will be posting pictures from the six other cities I visited over the next few weeks.Have an amazing month!

Lipstick Diaries

Hi Chicas, hope everyone's been having a fab week so far. I apologize for not posting regularly these past few weeks. My life has been super duper hectic but thankfully, I am starting a very much needed vacay this afternoon- whoop! 
Usually, my posts are about my outfits or celeb style, but I thought I'd do something different and chronicle some of the 30-something lipsticks & lip glosses I own. I took these pictures this past December but never got around to posting them. Here goes...

This is one of my favorite pink shades. For a price tag of 99c, I am definitely getting a bang for my buck. This lipstick really pops and is comparable to some of the higher brands. It's creamy, moisturizing, and last for about 5 hours.


I just discovered Cherry Frost in December. It's very similar to an old favorite of mine (see here).It has a silk finish  and it is extremely moisturizing. However, It's not your everyday red lipstick as it has shimmer in it.

Crystal lilac(revlon) is my all time favorite everyday lip color. I love that the color pops, but is still safe to wear in the day time. The downside is that it lasts for only 2.5 hours, and I find myself reapplying it quite a lot during the day.

I am not a big fan of girl about town. It's suppose to be a creme lipstick, but it dries out my lips and has this weird texture on my skin. Me no likey!

This lipstick really is a deep purple(almost black). The color was way darker than I liked and I actually applied purple eye shadow to make it less dark. Seeing as it's not a typical lip color, I doubt I'll get a lot of use out of it!

Do you guys have any favorite lip colors? Please share in the comment box. Happy hump day!

Looks I loved this week

It was a pretty fashionable week in Hollywood. Solange as always, served various forms of fabulous with her quirky self. Diane Kruger, Abby Cornish, and Irene Visedo looked absolutely gorgeous rocking floor length ensembles. It's hard to not look stunning in a black number, and Reese Witherspoon as always, looked fab in a chic LBD. Bella Thorne, was absolutely adorable in a pink Kate Spade dress, she is only 16, and her outfit to the Winter's Tale premiere was very age appropriate. Denim on denim is still a trend to reckon with, and Kate Bosworth pulled it off quite effortlessly.
