How to pair Fenty Beauty and JCPenney Fashion x Sephora inside JCPenney

Exciting things happening! Many of you have tried some of the products from Fenty Beauty, but have you SEEN the new products yet?! I am SO pumped! In collaboration with Sephora inside JCPenney I will be showing you how I styled three different outfits from JCPenney with three different colors from Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Lip Collection which I got at Sephora inside JCPenney too!

JCPenney opened Sephora inside JCPenney at their stores in 2006 and they are doing big things! High quality clothes AND high end beauty products in one place?? YES PLEASE. It’s a great way to get everything you need to shop for in one place.

Sephora inside JCPenney also offers free mini-makeovers at their locations! Guess who got to go in-store and try the new Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle line? YES, ME! This line has 14 amazing, matte lipstick shades that will seriously leave you speechless! I decided to do 3 different outfits with my #FentyFace and match 3 fun colors from the Mattemoiselle Collection.

Click HERE to check out all the colors!

Below, I have on this Project Runway Knot Waist Sweatshirt Dress (perfect for chilly days). I love the details in the middle of this dress because it accentuates my waist and my curves. Sometimes, in the winter, we end up of losing our shape with all of the thick clothes and layers we have to wear to stay warm!

Direct link to shop is HERE.

Comes in 2 colors: Purple & Grey. I’m wearing a size small.

Currently on sale for under $30!

I decided to pair this outfit with the Mattemoiselle lipstick in the shade “Griselda”. I think this lip shade ties the outfit together nicely and isn’t “too girly”. 

Link to shop is HERE.

Also wearing these awesome suede, knee high boots from Liz Claiborne! I am obsessed with these boots. I always have a hard time finding a pair of boots that don’t slouch down while walking, these stay in place!

Link to shop is HERE. Currently 80% off!! No joke, $20!

If you have heard anything about Fenty Beauty at this point, you know that Rihanna is killin’ it when it comes to quality! And above all- she actually made products for ALL skin types and shades. No, seriously…all of them. A lot of brands claim to be all-inclusive, but end up falling short. Not this line! The colors are SO rich and yet still light and wearable! And the shades go from light to dark, and everything in between!

Click HERE to shop the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r foundations.

The second outfit I put together has more contrast. I LOVE contrast in my outfits, and these Mattemoiselle shades will have plenty of options for that! SO, can we talk about these bell sleeves?! This blouse is from T.D.C Funnel – The sleeves are the perfect length so I still feel comfortable going out to eat and not getting food all over! Yeah, I’m clumsy! So what?! Haha.

Click HERE to shop!

They currently have black in stock. I’m wearing a size small!

I paired this top with black pants from BELLE + SKY and, yep, those suede knee high boots, again! I told you I love them!

The Mattemoiselle lipstick Plush Matte lipstick shade I went with for this outfit is “Shawty”. I swear, the names of these lip colors are almost just as awesome as the line itself! I chose this shade because it’s a much darker color and it looks awesome against a white top. Plus, it made my outfit just a bit more edgy.

Click HERE for the lipstick!

My third outfit was honestly my favorite and kind of out of my comfort zone — which is why I’m releasing how much I loved it. I was challenged to pick an outfit I usually wouldn’t wear and pair it with a color lip I haven’t done before either. Challenge taken and I’m in love!!

I rocked this killer floral track suit with my feminist t-shirt underneath.

Don’t you just love this? I now wanna wear this jacket all the time.

Project Runway Floral Bomber Jacket – it’s currently on sale – under $20!!

Click HERE to shop the jacket.

Project Runway Floral Track Pants – also on sale – under $35!!

Click HERE to shop the pants.

My feminist t-shirt is also from the Project Runway Line! It’s currently under $10.

Click HERE to shop this graphic t-shirt!

For this look I wanted to pair it with a FUN & in-your-face color! I picked “One Of The Boyz” — it’s a gorgeous lilac color. I’m glad I tried something I normally wouldn’t. It made me want to explore more when it comes to colors in my makeup routine!

Click HERE to shop this lipstick!

An Easy Way To Wear A Dress In Winter!

Wintertime would be SO much cooler (pun intended) if we could continue wearing our favorite clothes without freezing to death. Well, luckily there are a couple things we can do to keep frostbite at bay. When the cold air hits, there are still a ton of outfits we can get away with, as long as it isn’t super windy. NOTHING can get past that wind! I LOVE wearing dresses year round, so I am always thinking of new ways to style them and stay warm(ish).

As we all know, layering is so important when trying to stay warm. The dress I am wearing is from one of my favorite stores and it’s linked below! It has thin fabric, but it’s layered with a thicker slip underneath. I also like that the sleeves are long and thin, so I can wear it under virtually ANY jacket or coat.

NEXT- Leggings, tights, stockings-oh my! I picked these fun ones up at my local Macy’s Backstage inside Macy’s (thank you for the gift card!!)

You could be wearing the most simple dress but be able to jazz it up perfectly with the right pair of tights or stockings! I have found some amazing and inexpensive stockings at a few stores this season and they are linked below for you. The ones I am wearing below are flower printed, so they are edgy, but still feminine. I like pairing this dress with a black coat that runs a little longer than the dress itself, that way I can still show off my stockings, and ankle boots (or booties) !

Alright, so we will stay reasonably warm for a quick walk to the movies (or wherever you are going that night) from the car. Right? Right! What are we missing?

Yup- ACCESSORIES! One thing I will always adore about accessories is that the weather doesn’t matter! The fashion gods didn’t let us down in that department. (thank you, fashion gods!) Below the sunnies I have linked you can shop and also get $15 each or anything from their website by using code: tonyamichelle — every dollar saved counts!!

I decided to wear these round, jet black, sunnies to pull together my whole outfit. With my black boots, my belt, and my sunnies, everything comes together nicely!

Also the lip color I’m wearing is linked HERE.

So, like I said earlier, this outfit is a bit edgy, but still feminine. I kept that same vibe with my makeup as well. I was a little light on my eyes, but decided on a darker lipstick. You can also find similar circle earrings here!

Well, I hope you all like this look as much as I do!

I linked some other favorites below.

 

I lucked 0ut and found this Sam Edelman faux fur jacket at the local Macy’s Backstage for under $40!! I’ve linked some others below. It’s a great way to add some flair to your outfit (pun intended if you don’t rock flair pants – haha)

 

Studded booties are by Chinese Laundry – shop them HERE.

Some of my other favorites below.

Statement pants – These are from Sugar Lips, link HERE.

A Holiday Gift That Is A MVMT

It’s that time of year, people! CHRISTMAS TIME! There isn’t anything quite like a classic watch. And the style of watches have come a long way!

With MVMT watches, not only are you guaranteed to be wearing, or gifting, a stylish watch, but you’re also supporting a small dream from two men that turned into something grand.

The style of these watches are amazing and at first glance, you would expect them to be super expensive. But they aren’t. They are SO well-made, stylish AND affordable.

SUNSET BOX FROM THE BOULEVARD COLLECTION

Now, if you’re anything like me, you love Christmas shopping for friends and family, BUT sometimes it can be pretty hard to choose between styles. Do they want their watch black? What if they want a brown one?

Well, there’s good news. With some of  MVMT Limited Edition Gift Boxes, you don’t have to choose!

The Rose Box and the Lexington Box are a a couple of the gift boxes that come with interchangeable straps, as well as the perfect pair of matching sunnies.

One of the cool things about the limited edition gift boxes are how much you can save rather than buying each item separately. For instance, the runaway polarized sunglasses are $95. The Crux Watch is $150. Just those two items, by themselves, put you at $245.

But with the Runaway Box, you get both of those items, plus an interchangeable leather strap and the perfect gift box, which can double as safe storage for your collection!

The total of the Runaway Box is $280 AND you can use my discount code, for additional savings!  The Runaway box includes:

  • – NOVA 38MM | CRUX WATCH
  • – INTERCHANGEABLE BLACK LEATHER STRAP
  • – RUNAWAY – MATTE BLACK SUNGLASSES (POLARIZED)

In the picture below, I am wearing the Matte Black Sunglasses called RUNWAY also in the Runaway Box. Black is always just so classic and clean and I feel like it goes with everything. These sunnies also come in 2 other colors. Cant go wrong with a pair of avators. Click here to shop this look, and don’t forget to use the discount code I put at the bottom of this post.

Below is the Sandstone Box  from the Men’s Combo Box. Hurry, before they’re all SOLD OUT!

The Combo Box features a watch and interchangeable strap, packaged in a limited edition gift box. The Sandstone Box includes:

  • – CHRONO 45MM | GUNMETAL SANDSTONE WATCH
  • – INTERCHANGEABLE BLACK LEATHER STRAP

#JOINTHEMVMT

They are currently selling out SO fast, so I would head there now. They only have two women’s boxes left!

You can use my code tonyamichelle on any item to save! Happy Shopping and Merry Christmas, you guys!

Holiday Shopping Made Easy With Westfield Montgomery Mall

This holiday season I’m spending my time shopping at Westfield Montgomery Mall! I have partnered up with them to show you some of my favorite stores and best holiday items to give.  Scroll below and let me help you find the perfect item for yourself or a loved one.

My first stop at the mall was ALDO, their sales for the holidays are great and you can’t beat their normal prices either. Their handbags are one of my favorite things about them. You can find a dupe handbag for an amazing price. I found one! Below you will see mine and how I styled it. I purchased for under $50!

Isn’t it gorgeous? I’m obsessed. Thanks Aldo for a great find!

Next stop was Stuart Weitzman – I’m in LOVE with some of their new designs. Below you’ll find my top picks I found at Westfield Montgomery!

These Overcoat Booties are to DIE for, make a true statement right?!? These are on my wish list. Dear Santa, I promise I’ve been good this year. Size 9 please and thank you.

The Decor Sneaker below comes in 4 different colors and they are SO cute. An easy way to jazz up a simple pair of jeans and t-shirt. Who needs accessories when you can have them on your sneakers!!

My third stop was at Nordstrom! It’s like heaven right now. So many gift options and they go above and beyond to help you find the perfect item. In their beauty section you can find endless possibilities. Below are some of my favorites!

The MAC counter — display is not only on point but makes you wanna buy everything!

I had to pick up this case from Sonix for my iPhone X that will be arriving soon. 

Rebecca Minkoff bags!!!! Can we talk about these details?! To die for. Their selection of handbags are unreal and stunning. A great way to add to your collection or someones.

Need Dry Bar at home?! Nordstrom has it covered!!! Whether it’s a blow dryer or an entire gift set. Bring that blowout home.

One of my favorite beauty brands has the cutest and greatest gift sets. Clinque is killing it! Nordstrom has a huge selection of their items as well as their beauty counter. 

Victoria Secret was having a killer sale and I had to make sure I stopped someone for Carl, right? haha. They also had the cutest gift sets as well. I think I’m truly a sucker for a good gift set. Their matching PJ sets are also a good idea for your girlfriends. You can have a fun sleepover and all relax in your new pjs, at least that’s something I find fun!!

My next stop was to Michael Kors! I love how Westfield has all types of stores, everything from household stores, high end department stores, to budget friendly stores as well. It’s a great one-stop shop for everything you need for Holiday shopping.

I walked into Michael Kors and was blown away by their presentation of everything. Not only was everything stunning, I wanted to try on each piece of clothing. If you’re looking for a Holiday dress, outfit or jacket, you HAVE to head to Michael Kors. Below I’ll show you what I walked away with….

This dress is GORGEOUS. I saw it, and had to bring it home. I’m wearing a size small! I’ve linked the dress HERE incase you don’t have a store near you!

I wanted to hit up every store but my last stop for the day was Kiehl’s!

They have some of my favorite lotion and skin care products. I had to make a stop to see what great gift giving ideas they had. I found the cutest Mickey Mouse themed items which also teamed up with Feed America. What’s better than buying a great gift for someone but also giving back to a great cause at the same time!

If you’re local to the DMV area – You need to stop by Westfield Montgomery Mall for all your Holiday shopping needs. You can even bring the kids by to see Santa!! One stop shop.

How to transition your favorite skirt from Summer into Fall.

You can easily take your favorite skirt from an earlier season, pair with some tights and you can rock it all year ’round! It’s a great way to not only be able to enjoy one of your favorite pieces of your wardrobe but to even save from having to buy another item! Don’t get me wrong, I am all about finding great deals and adding new staple pieces in your closet, but also re-using items. Don’t forget how much we waste and throw out, re-use or even donate. What item you might be over, someone else might be looking for! Just my 2-cents for the day!!

With that being said! I found this skirt at Macy’s Backstage — it’s part of Macy’s but a separate sections where they discount items to move them out of the store. If you haven’t checked if they have one at your local Macy’s you can click HERE to find out. It’s an amazing way to find a great deal.

I was gifted a few items from my local store and this suede skirt and these booties were two of the items I could leave without!! This skirt is out of stock but I have linked some great trendy skirts below. You could wear them to work with tights or skip the tights for date night or a night out with the girls!

I always buy 4-5 pair of tights for the Fall/Winter season and wear them out! I’ve linked some great affordable ones below. Black is usually my go-to color but this season I think I might add a red, grey and olive pair to my collection. I’ve been leaning towards the bolder side these last few months. (As if you couldn’t tell with some of my #ootds – haha)

I hit the jackpot when I found these booties by GUESS at Macy’s Backstage. They were marked down from $135 to under $30!!!!! I was like “Yep, coming home with mama!” – Also they have great support. I was shocked to be honest. Didn’t know how painful it would be to break them in. I’ve noticed with all the GUESS shoes I’ve purchased, they have all been conformable. Good job Guess, high five to you for not killing my feet. Below I’ve linked some similar styles that I love and they are actually on sale as well. Click any of the photos below to shop and find out the sale price!

Can’t go wrong with a good classic GUCCI. Linked below are some of my favorites including the one I’m wearing. Different colors can be seen by clicking the photos below.

Sunnies — for me, it’s a way for myself not to get busted for rolling my eyes. lol Anyone else? Can’t be just me. Linked below are some great pairs for a reasonable price! (First two pairs use TONYA15 for 15% off)

Last but not least is this gorgeous top! I love when I can get away without having to accessorize as much, I know total excuse but it’s true. This top seals the deal for me! A peek-a-boo cut out in the neck which makes a choker. Thank you and you’re welcome. haha Direct link is below, also comes in 4 colors and I’m wearing a small! I also linked some of my favorite others from their “top” section!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you got an idea how to turn one of your earlier seasoned pieces into something you can rock for Fall or Winter! xx, Tonya Michelle

Get My Curls with Sexy Hair. Hair tutorial video included!!

Hey Ya’ll,

I can’t tell you how many messages I get about how I curl my hair and which products I love to use in my routine. This post has been long over due!! Today I have partnered up with Sexy Hair to show you how to prep and curl your hair to get some gorgeous curls.

As much as you want to get right down to how to achieve these curls that will last you all day, it’s important to first go over how to care and prep your hair for the styling! I used to not “prep” for my styling and sadly didn’t have the shine I wanted and I even had really bad split ends, I highly recommend using the products below.

Also, don’t forget to view the video below,

you’ll see how easy it is to achieve these curls!

LONG SEXY HAIR – LUXURIOUS SHAMPOO
Click HERE for the direct link.
This shampoo will do the cleaning you need, removing any of the left over product you might have in your hair as well as providing that soft shine everyone wants!  This is good for even extensions.
 
LONG SEXY HAIR – LUXURIOUS CONDITIONER
Click HERE for the direct link.
This gentle conditioner is infused with Moringa Oil & Biotin. These ingredients help give you hair smoothness and shine that you want. It will also help hydrate those ends! I use this on my ends, leave on for 2-3 mins and then rinse while I’m still in the shower.
HEALTHY SEXY HAIR – SOY TRI-WHEAT LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER
Click HERE for the direct link.
For those days when your hair needs extra love and hydration you can use this! I use this 2-3 times a week depending on how much I’m blow drying or styling my hair. If you swim a lot, this is a great product to have as well. You simply spray on your damp towel dried hair and brush through! Easy as that and your hair will be thanking you later.
HOT SEXY HAIR – PREP ME 450°F HEAT PROTECTION BLOW DRY PRIMER 
Click HERE for the direct link.
This is the most important part of your hair routine. Prepping your hair for styling is a must, if you don’t you will have major breakage and spit ends. No one wants that, right?! I use a quarter size dab while my hair is damp. I rub in-between both hands and then run my hands through my hair.
Three major key factors:
– Protects up to 450°F
– Reduces breakage by up to 68%!*
– No product feel, ideal for layering with other styling products!
(*Results from Independent Study against untreated hair.)
HEALTHY SEXY HAIR- SOY TOUCHABLE WEIGHTLESS HAIRSPRAY
Click HERE for the direct link.
I use Soy Touchable to achieve and hold my natural curls. It provides just the right amount of hold without the sticky or hard feeling. You’re able to still run your hands through your hair without tangling or stiffness. If you live in an area of any sort of humidity this is also the product for you. It has great humidity-resistance and controlling frizz. This also will help protect your hair when you curl it as well, but also make sure you use that Hair Prep as well!!!
Now the fun part! My hair tutorial is below.

Let me know if you have any questions, I’d love to answer.
