Wet n Wild "Vanity" Look of the Day


This is the third look of the day featuring the Wet n Wild palettes that I've won from a blog contest. This is the Vanity palette. It consists of golds, browns and beige colors. This is the perfect palette for that every day neutral look.This is probably the most toned down palette out of the 4. I really like the colors.

I'm practicing on applying false eye lashes on myself. I can apply them well on other people but when it comes to applying them on myself it's a different story. I struggled a bit with the lashes, but I got them on. I'll probably be wearing lashes in every LOTD (look of the day) until I become better at applying them on myself.

Sorry, there are no close up pics... my skin broke out really bad for a while around my mouth and chin (sighs). It's finally getting back to normal.

It looks pretty Gabriel. I saw that in the store, and I have been wanting to buy it, but I never do. Maybe I will since it looks awesome on you :)

Very pretty! I don't have this one, but thinking I should as it's a nice neutral palette. The lashes look great, btw! :D

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…
