Top 3 Makeup Inspirations

Growing up I have always have had a few makeup and beauty inspirations who have inspired me from their lifestyle, hair, clothes and makeup. Here are my top three:

1. Monica

I have always admired Monica's style and music since her first album at 15 years old. Most celebrities usually go for a flawless face and a nude eye/barely there eye but Monica sets her own style. Her eye makeup always is flawless and expertly defined. I've seen her wear a colorful eye to a smokey or nude eye. No matter what she wears it alwasy compliments her flawless face and contoured features. Her style and makeup is out of this world. I love it!!!! Her makeup artist is the talented Christian Balenciaga.

2.  Kimora Lee Simmons

Anyone who really knows me knows I absolutely LOVE Kimora Lee Simmons!! I think I'm in the Fab lane right along with Kimora, lol. I love her entrepreneurial spirit, creativity, motivation, business sense and her style. Kimora's look always reminds me of a beautiful, china doll. She normally goes for a perfected canvas (flawless face) bronzer and neutral eye. At times she may go for a smokey eye or a colorful lip but very rarely do you see her with a colorful eye but that's fine because she rocks whatever she has on like the Fabulous Diva she is. What I like most about Kimora's makeup look is her skin always appears dewy, meaning it's never dry, it always has the proper amount of moisture and she always has a sun-kissed glow on her cheeks which is attributed to her wearing bronzer. She also has her own makeup line, (which I have several products from) her items can be purchased at

3. Rihanna
Rihanna has edginess like no other. Her music, clothes and hair are all edgy and even her makeup. I like that Rihanna defies the rules of style.She isn't afraid to make her own style and it's reflected in her makeup. This is my favorite look of hers which is in the above picture. She has a navy-cobalt blue eye liner that is winged out with hot pink lips. I love it! It's a simple look but she chose bold colors that people normally don't wear or would even think about wearing the colors together.

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…
