These leggings are by one of my favorite brands: Yummie By Heather Thompson! You can shop her designs here: Women’s Leggings. They DO sell out fast so if you like a pair, get them. They also get different designs and patterns in frequently. They run true to size as well. I’m wearing a small.

Spring into Fashion with Marc Fisher Lace Up Sandals.

Marc Fisher is a name within it’s self but I am so happy I was able to style these gorgeous lace up sandals. You can find them in two other colors (Brown and Black) if Blush doesn’t tickle your fancy. Personally blush is my newest obsession and 100% is the IN color this Spring!

Click here to shop.

You can put these sandals with a POP of color like I did or you can wear all neutrals and add some color with your shoes. It’s all up to you! I love how you can do either with these. I know Marc Fisher is known for the classic neutrals which gives you the freedom to express yourself with how you dress.

I paired this floral dress I got from Shop Stevie Hender on Instagram (not the best customer service though), my Dagne Dover tote with my gorgeous March Fisher sandals to complete the look. I love that they lace up as well as zip in the back.  This gives your feet some breathing zoom so you’re not only relying on lacing them up for comfort.

They run true to size. I also like how the shoe has the perfect arch, not too much heel but just enough. You can truly dress these down for work or dress them up for a night out on the town!!!

Do yourself a favor and add these to your Spring Must Have list. You won’t regret it.

Check out my two fellow bloggers and how they styled these Marc Fisher Lace Up Sandals:

Taylor: Lights, Camera, Catwalk.

Taylor: Blonde and Ambitious.

T3 Micro Wand Tutorial & My Favorite Products.

Hey Ladies, Hope everyone is having a fabulous day! Today I wanted to show you how I use one hair tool to get two different size curls as well as the products I use to keep my hair healthy in the process.

Below you will see how I transform my hair from straight to wavy and kinky curls!!

Just blow dried my hair straight and now ready to start the fun!

Above I’m using my T3 Micro Whirl Convertible (say that 3 times fast, I dare you!) You can achieve two different sized curls from this wand! If you want more loose curls, you start curling your hair from the bigger end of the wand to the smaller end. If you’re looking for kinky / smaller curls you can simply curl your hair all at the smaller end of the wand. I did two different size curls below so you can see the difference. The Whirl Convertible is my favorite size they have, I’m always switching up what size curls I want and this wand gives me both! You can click here to purchase and find more of their wands!

Below is my loose curls.

If you run your fingers or a brush through them, they will loosen up even more.

Below is my kinky/small curls.

I always feel super sassy when I do smaller tighter curls, I love them! ha

Now, below I will show you some products I use to help my hair stay healthy and also some that I use to add volume or to style. I’m not paid by these brands, I just like them and it’s what I use. I also do change up my hair products every other month or when they run out. I like to try new things and I believe its the only way you really know what you love and what doesn’t work for you!

So above are the current hair products I use while my hair is either wet or when it’s styled.

  • Philip B – Jet Set Hairspray : I use this daily. #heavensent #1
  • It’s a 10 – Miracle Dry Oil Spray: I use this when my hair is frizzing & not listening to me, a little goes a long way! I’m almost out though! #2
  • Umberto – Lifting Powder: I use this when I want some major volume at my roots, no joke, use the TINIEST bit! This is something you want to build up gradually, if you use too much you will need to wash your hair again, lol. Trust me — been there. #3
  • L’Oreal -Frizz Taming Serum: I also use this for frizz, I switch between this and the “Its a 10” #4.
  • Goldwell- Kerasilk Color Protective Blow-Dry Spray: I use this daily to protect my hair before I curl it. It goes on your hair before or after, I use it after, right before I curl my hair. #5.
  • RedKen- Satinwear 02 Blow-Dry Lotion; This is a gel. I personally use this every other day but I need to remember to use it everyday. This also protects your hair from heat. #6.
  • It’s Miracle De‑frizzing Gel: I use this a lot in the summer, humidity doesn’t like my hair. #7.
  • Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner- I use this to help my hair feel soft after day 2 of dry shampoo and not washing it! ha, who’s with me? #8

** I have micro- link extensions, they were done by Gina;  @glamyourhair in Maryland, I love my hair and I’ve had them now for almost 2 months, no complaints so far and these are my favorite kind. I’ve had them all — just ask, these haven’t damaged my hair. If you use her services, you can get $50 by telling her you were referred by me. It’s good towards installation.**

I hope you liked my hair post! I will be doing YouTube videos soon, so be on the look out! My youtube channel is link here, feel free to follow.

Holiday Makeup Look with Neutrogena

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GetHolidayReady #CollectiveBias

Today I have teamed up with Neutrogena, Walmart, and Social Fabric to bring you guys two different easy ways to get your holiday look by using Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks and one easy way on how to remove it all with Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.

img_0104

I purchased these items from Walmart, for a direct link to purchase these items click here. Below is a few photos of where I found the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, in a 21 pack and Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks in different colors. My looks that I created were with  Deep Plum (180) and Pink Nude (100).

img_0109


My Walmart offered 16 different colors!!! The colors they have to choose from are amazing. I love when companies offer more than just a few. We all have different likes and needs when it comes to our makeup looks. Since Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks are made with fruit extracts along with mango and shea butter, the balm-like formula glides on easily, providing a sheer wash of moisturizing color that lasts for hours. Amazing right? I know at least for me, living in VA – it’s needed to find a good moisture locked color stick. I did their 3 day test, they say within 3 days of using their products, your lips will feel smoother. I can give them a thumbs up on that!

Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – 21Count are my go-to makeup wipes. I’ve sworn by them for years and if you didn’t see my Instagram video, head there now to see how easy it is to remove your makeup by using their Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They say it erases 99.3% of your most stubborn makeup, even waterproof mascara, in one easy step and I 100% believe them. One of my favorite things about using Neurogena makeup removes is how gentle they are on your eyes. I wear contacts and I’ve had the issue with other brands burning my eyes.

img_0107


For my first holiday look, I used Pink Nude (100) on my lips and cheeks. I did a soft daytime look, something you can wear to the office or during the day while you’re running errands. I think the soft pink is perfect for a natural look. This color is my go-to for day to day, I keep this in my bag as my “chapstick” – adds just the perfect amount of color to your lips!

img_0101


For my second below look I used Deep Plum (180) – I simply added some darker eye shadow, used the Deep Plum color stick on my lips and cheeks. It’s so easy to change up your look by using a darker lip color. This lip color is perfect for a holiday party that’s in the evening or a fun girls night!

img_0102

I hope this helped show how easy it can be to achieve that day to day holiday look or the night out on the town holiday glam!
