MAC Spring Colour Forecast Collection!!!

I did quite a few Mac purchases within the last week. I bought four items from the Spring Colour Forecast Collection. I'm so happy that Spring is right around the corner because I'm sick of the snow and I can't wait to wear the new makeup colors. I bought from the Spring Colour 2 Coral collection and Spring Colour 3 Plum collection.

I bought the Ripe Peach Blush Ombre. It's gorgeous and already sold out on the Mac website. The blush has two tones, peach and coral that can be worn together to create a beautiful look or the lighter peach color can be worn as a highlight and the darker coral color can be worn as a contouring color. The price is $25 a few dollars more than the normal Mac blushes but you get a larger size than the normal blush size and it's well worth it! I also bought the Kumquat Lip glass ($14) it's a frosted tangerine color. It's very pretty. I see myself wearing this with a chestnut lip liner or even a pretty berry lip liner like Currant.

I also bought the Vintage Grape Blush Ombre ($25). So beautiful!! It's a mid-tone violet pink. The colors look great as a highlighter and contour color. Both blushes are limited edition and can achieve a medium-buildable coverage. Lastly, I bought the Lavender Wind Lip glass ($14). It's described as a lavender with pearl frost color. It's already sold out on the Mac website too! It's a soft lavender color. It looks darker on the website. I could barely see it on myself because of the sheer color so I'm going to layer it over some of my berry lipsticks like "Sophisto" and "Desire." I think the lip glass would look good with a berry lip liner.

All in all I am pleased with this collection. All the products are available to purchase from a Mac store or counter and from their website.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.

Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."

Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
