Hard Candy Cosmetics

During my last visit to Walmart last weekend, I had to venture down the cosmetics aisle to see if they had restocked their shelves. It seems as if my Walmart is always out of some or everything is out of order but in any case I found some goodies while there. I have been hearing about Hard Candy So Baked bronzers for a while and I finally found them. Even though they are called bronzers, they are far too light for my dark complexion. So what I will be using them for, is highlighters. The one that I researched that would suit my skintone the best would be Tropics. Its a not overly bronzey tan color with bronze veining. When swatched, it gives off this nicely bronze glow without looking like a disco ball.

Lastly I saw this eyeshadow called Supernova that reminded me soo much of the MAC Young Punk, which was limited edition. Don't you hate when MAC comes out with a collection and then once sold out, it disappears. SMH! However, Supernova can be your alternative. When photographed it looks almost identical but in the pan you can see that Supernova has a deep purple color rather than a pinkie/purple flexes of glitter and no white veining. I am absolutely impressed with this line and will be making more purchases,as soon as I decide what else I want.

Braid it once, braid it twice

For a while now the hair trends have been forever changing from long loose curls, to short bobs, and from high buns to now braids. It can start from one side of the head and finish on the other. Or the braid can do a complete circle around head. Going from a simple French braid to intricate fish tail braids. Braiding is nothing new but with many celebrities doing some of these hair styles, they are becoming popular again. Seeing a lot of pictures in magazines and online, makes me wonder if you have been joining the craze.

Spring anyone?

Spring is right around the corner but for some of us, spring has graced her presence early. I know everyone has seen the colorful skinny jeans that's out and they are allowing us to dress in all different colors without looking crazy. The brightness and the vibrancy of the colors in the color forcast has made me extremely happy, since I'm a person who LOVES color.
But besides the bright colors, I have been loving the look of just black and white. The dresses and the accessories that are coming out has me in heaven. The dress with the black lace around the collar and chest, I own. It fits perfectly. But with these two bland colors, you can always pair it with a solid color shoe and clutch or bag. My question to you is, how will you be dressing this spring?

Where have I been??

I have been gone for way too long. In the beginning I was uninspired to write anything and then my laptop permanently died on me. All this time I have found and fell in love with new products, clothing, and another website called pinterest. If you haven't checked it out yet, I advise you do. It's an easy way to share your ideas and inspiration boards for yourself and others. You can follow me at or click the button at the bottom. I have also been traveling. I went to California in December as well as Las Vegas. Both places were super fun. While in Vegas, we visited Hoover Dam and the view was amazing! Also I went to the gun range, which my bestie arranged and went to the pier in Calif. I can't show you all the pictures because I don't have a computer yet but I can show you pictures that I have saved on my phone. Follow Me on Pinterest

Give Me Vanity

Using my Wet n Wild Vanity palette, I created this very simple and neutral look paired with a bold orange lip. A mix of a red orange and bright orange lipstick created a muted down orange that not over the top.

My Silent Treatment

When I bought the Wet n Wild palette in Silent Treatment, I have not put it down. I have wore this look for a couple of days now and it looks absolutely gorgeous in the daytime. It is absolutely simple with just using all the colors in the palette and with a pop of color on the lips. This pink lipstick is my absolute fav. and is very moisturizing, MAC Milan Mode. Milan Mode is a Lustre with glitter but the glitter is not overbearing at all. I hope you all enjoy.
