Look of the Day- My 10 minute face (Detailed)

I'm not a morning person... and I'm constantly hitting the snooze button, constantly rushing and always forgetting something and I never have time to put on any makeup but since I have so much makeup that desperately needs to be used...I had to find a makeup routine that would be quick and easy and would take me less than 10 minutes to apply it either before I go to work or at work in my office. I've finally mastered the routine. So here it goes.

First, I do NOT wear a full-face of makeup to work every day because honestly I don't have the time and because I think it's important to give your skin breaks from wearing makeup all the time. Plus, I don't want people seeing me without makeup and not being able to recognize me. We've all seen celebrities without makeup at one time and thought " that them?" Yeah, I don't want people saying the same about me without makeup.

Second, I have a designated "work makeup" stash, meaning I have designated products that I wear to work and I keep them in a particular area so I don't have to look for them every morning. I keep them in my cosmetic bag in my purse and the stash includes: pressed powder, concealer, eye liner, a couple of lip glosses,1 lip liner, mascara and 1 eyeshadow quad.

The eyeshadow quad includes colors that will go with everything and colors that I can wear every day. I don't wear all the products in the stash every day. Some days I might wear gloss and mascara, other days I might wear concealer, powder, eyeshadow, gloss and eyeliner. I pick and choose what I'm going to wear from the stash depending on my mood, look and how much time I have.

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…
