Lipgloss of the Month- Black Opal

This month's featured lip gloss that I'm wearing all this week is another product that I stumbled upon while bargain shopping. CVS had their annual 50% and 75% sale off of select cosmetics. I was browsing and I saw a 75% sticker on this gloss from Black Opal and I immediately picked it up.

It's the Tear Drop lip liner and lacquer duo from Black Opal. It normally retails for $6.75. What I love about it- is that it comes with a retractable lip liner and it makes it very convenient for touch ups and you don't have to worry about finding a lip liner that matches.

After wearing it for a while it really lasts a good while. I put it on around 9am and it lasted until I ate it off at lunch time around 3pm, so that's a plus. The only thing I don't like is that it's very sticky, you may need some oil or Vaseline to remove it... but that's a minor issue because the finish is amazing. It gives you a glossy-wet finish!

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…
