Long Lasting Glam Makeup & OOTD – dpHUE + GIVEAWAY!

How fun was it to co-host dpHUE's event last week with Justin Anderson and his entourage! I loved meeting everyone and I'm deeply thankful for the opportunity along with my peeps/peers who were able to be there (I know it was far, far away for a lot of us, so I totally appreciate and understand whomever couldn't be there!). Now let's talk about hair, ootd and makeup please!!!!! I got my locks bleached out for Mr. Anderson and I told him that - now I blame it on Tony who told me his specialty was blondes and I just wanted to fit in!!! (ok, more like an excuse to go blonder during fall!!). - for makeup tutorial & to enter our giveaway see bottom of post - My hair guru Kiem Voong took great…

Love your Selfie

Hey Hey ladies, happy Fri-Yay!! Today I put together a quick insta tutorial on the look I created with Pür Cosmetics latest palette, the Love your Selfie #2 their newest addition to the family!   [show_shopthepost_widget id="1886652"] On my skin, I used a Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation just because it was "seating there" this foundation is being discontinued and one that is similar but not as matte is Les Beiges. I found the newer to be on the pink side so I had to go up a color to match my yellow/neutral skin. See your local counter for a match to make sure :) TIP: I learned this trick from a friend on instagram Sandra Bortolini mix your foundation with a pinch of pigment to give you the ultimate glow! I linked my favorite by M.A.C…

Cocoa Brown-ie !

Hey ladies and gents what's shaking?! This beggining of summer here in the corn fields have been rather odd. Stormy and overcast days seem to be the norm lately and ever since I was sent this little treasure here I can't stop gushing about my tan!! Yes I've been rocking skirts and showing off my tan legs waaaaay before anyone else at work thanks to Cocoa Brown :) Ok, let me share some facts about why Cocoa Brown is different from other self tanners on the market (since I was suuuuper skeptical myself), here are the main features of this best selling 1 hour tan: – Accelerating ingredients mean that this revolutionary, speedy self-tan develops into a rich Cocoa Brown colour in just 1 HOUR. – Once rinsed off, your tan will last for between 5…

Color Schemer: Tan & Green

What a great combo these two colors make! Yes it's a bit fall-ish but who cares, it works!! I don't know about you but along with the 70's trend-a-ton I'm seeing way more fall colors on trend for spring and summer than ever. For starters think the pantone color of the year is Marsala, which it's been on my favorites list for quite sometime now...my point is, just because it's not bright and loud it doesn't mean you can't wear ;) got it?! Another good point about the trends is the huge suede invasion in the colors that were pretty in back them such as Tan, Cognac, Caramel etc.. Ok, enough of blah-blah-blahs the look is pretty casual but can be office appropriate with a few changes.   Lucky Brand tan leather jacket (sold…

The Cat in the Hat

"A hat is a head covering. It can be worn for protection against the elements, for ceremonial reason, religious reasons, for safety, or as a fashion accessory.[1] In the past, hats were an indicator of social status.[2] In the military, they may denote nationality, branch of service, rank and/or regiment.[3] Some hats have a protective function. As examples, the hard hat protects construction workers' heads from injury by falling objects, a sun hat shades the face and shoulders from the sun, and a Ushanka fur hat with fold-down ear-flaps keeps the head warm. Some hats are worn for ceremonial purposes, such as the mortarboard, which is worn during graduation ceremonies. Some hats are worn by members of a certain profession, such as the Toque worn by chefs. Some hats have a religious functions, such as the turban worn by Sikhs." Wikipedia I'm sure you all know what a hat is but I added this description…
