Jill Scott's Block Party Concert... Plus Mini Look of the Day!

Hey Glamour Dolls,

It feels like a while that I've posted, I've been busy with an important project that's been taking up my time both mentally and physically...that explains the lack of posts, but; I did manage to have some much needed fun this past weekend at Jill Scott's Block Party Concert!

I saw Jill Scott last year with Maxwell and she was great but this year she was AMAZING! She's a great performer! Such raw talent and fantastic voice.

Her Block Party included Mint Condition, Anthony Hamilton, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Doug E. Fresh... the concert had an old school, neo soul and r'b feel.  The concert was not that far from where I live at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC.

Here are the pics!



Getting ready!

DJ Jazzy Jeff, I've always loved him since Fresh Prince of Bel Air-lol!


Anthony Hamilton and his backup singers, singing one of my fave songs- "The Point of it All"



Ms. Jill Scott!!!



We had a good time, my friend that went with me to the concert is a makeup artist as well. Her makeup always looks flawless! I don't know everything she had on but she did have on the Maybelline Fit me foundation, one of the La Femme blushes and this gorgeous blue eyeliner by Milani, she even rocked some blue mascara from LA Splash...it was hot!

I wore my Inglot shadows, eyeliner by Mac, mascara by L'oreal, Face and Body foundation, MUFE HD powder, Mac Margin blush and Pink Nouveau lipstick by Mac.

That's all dolls... I hope to get back to my regularly scheduled posts very soon :)

@Royal Beauty: Thanks, I really didn't know how I was going to do my makeup, glad it came out looking decent.
You guys look amazing...and that's a really good lineup for a concert. I wish I could've went.

Thanks, the lineup was really good. I don't know where you live, but Jill's Block Party lasts throughout the summer-you may still be able to catch a show.

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…
