When it comes to winter weather, the only thing you want to do is snuggle under a ton of blankets and watch reruns of Sex and the City w/ hot chocolate ( or wine), but there are those cold mornings when you have to leave the comfort of home to the outside bitterness, and who says you can’t be casual comfort, to take on the day. Here are some wonderful outfits and choices that will actually leave you feeling warm inside, and hot outside.
When it comes to over sized sweaters, its always best to buy them a size up, because “the bigger, the better.” With the brisk wind of the winter, over size will save your life, unless you live in California. I really like slouchy sweaters, the way they hang off jeans, looks like your not trying at all, which isn’t that the look we been trying to pull off for years.
Mom Jeans?? I know who would have thought this would be the trend of trends. In all fairness mom jeans are the perfect jeans for the winter trends. Mom jeans fit loose but , tight in the right places, if you pick wisely. I put mom jeans on the list because, they can be worn with just about anything, and pairing them with an oversize hoodie, or jacket, bumps up the look 110%.
Its no doubt, thigh high boots are the #1 fashion essentials for the winter. Thigh highs, are just the main attraction of any outfit, also if you want those long model legs, these provide that illusion.
I hope you enjoyed this fashion post, and tell me in the comments what’s your favorite thing about the winter?
A lot of shopping sites such as Romwe, Shein, and other comparable sites are really coming up in the world of fashion, Gamiss has made the list. Gamiss has a huge selection of the latest in fashion, beauty, accessories, and other etc. While they carry amazing items, the prices is unbeatable, ranging from 50- 90% off items, if that doesn’t say SALE I don’t know what does.
Recently, I got the chance to purchase some items and while there were hits, there was also some misses. The shipping process of the items took a while, about a 3 weeks, after the package arrived, and taking a couple hundred instagram pics, I finally looked through the package. I received one bag with 3 smaller bags inside. Here are the items that I purchased.
Lets start with Beauty, I got the Pure and Natural Aloe Vera Gel, which was just a 1 oz squeeze tube. I really like using the product, it doesn’t really have an aroma, and the product itself, almost dissolves into a water-y texture. Some gels have the tendency to feel very sticky, and this feels so organic and natural, almost if you have nothing on. Next product is the Blackhead remover face mask, this was the most hyped instagram product of the summer, and it does not disappoint. The tube is a 1 oz, and the a little dime size of the product can give full coverage. When using the product allow the product to be spread evenly over your face before adding a 2nd coat, the mask dries matte, and peeling it is no joke!!
I also purchased 3 clothing items, the first being this 90’s t shirt. I am in Love with this shirt, I rep the 90’s so much, because I was born ’95, but it just brings back so many memories. I got this shirt in a (M) and It fits perfect, the material feels thick, like a poly-cotton blend. I love this shirt because you can wear it in so many ways.
Next item I got was a wine colored cable knit Sweater the sweater looks really nice, but there are some things I want to point out 1). The sweater fit to snug ( which was probably my fault) 2). It looked nothing like the picture. I ordered a size (M) which I probably should have gotten a (L) (XL), the sweater was suppose to fit loose, and off the shoulder, but It looks like a cropped sweater, but in spite of those 2 minors, I’ll find something to do with it, or maybe either give it to my sister. The color is gorgeous, it screams Autumn/Winter.
The last clothing item, was a 2 piece sweatsuit which was all black, and simple. The material was thick, and felt like cotton. The hoodie fit perfect a little loose, and hung off my body, the pants however, was super small, the paints did not hit the ankles of my legs at all, and they don’t hug at the bottoms like joggers do. I don’t completely want to get rid of it, I might use it as a workout outfit or sleep in it.
Lastly I got some accessories, first were some mirrored rectangle sunglasses these were so pretty on the website, and they were only $5. I love these shades, they are completely hallowed out, and they fit perfect on my face. Next, I got some men multi-colored rope bracelets they were just 3 regular bracelets with a braided pattern on each, one of the bracelets were broken, nothing a little stiching can’t fix, these bracelets are really nice, I’ll probably by more. I also brought a set of Crucifix cartilage earrings these were super pretty. And lastly, I brought a simple titanium gold ring it was a simple gold ring, I brought it in a size 7. I like the way the ring fits, not to tight at all, and it also has a bit of weight, which I love.
Well that’s all for my first Gamiss haul, for a first time experience, it wasn’t so bad, the shipping was a little long, but all in all, it was worth the wait. I liked most of my items, a few minor misses, but not many. The products I purchased I was thoroughly impressed with for the prices I brought them for.
Did you love this haul, if so “LIKE” and leave a “COMMENT” if you were born in the 90’s, if so what was your fave 90’s tv show?

Winter is here and the topic of skin is a popular subject. I myself love a good skincare regimen, but with newer more prominent products coming out, my routine is constantly changing. When it comes to my skin its normally cleanse, tone, serum, and moisturize, so when I heard aboutBelize in you skincareI couldn’t wait to add them into my routine.
Belize in you Marine and Body Care is a health/beauty company that uses all natural and raw materials for the Caribbean waters and Mayan mountains of Belize.
When I got contacted through pr agents to try a few items, I was excited yet hesitant, I literally had an entire conversation with myself, before replying back. When you get used to the products that you use daily, it kind of a switch up when you have to change it, but anyways I chose a toner and serum, just to see what their products can offer to my skin.
I got theMarine mineral skin toner and the Rooibos tea antioxidant facial serum. Lets talk about the marine toner, the toner looks very much high end skin care, as a matter of fact the cost is pretty much high end, it retails for $55. The product also is 4 fl oz, so your getting a ton of product for what your’e paying. After doing a morning and night routine, I can see a bit of a difference, I’ve used this for about a month, and my skin feels very refreshed and hydrated, some toners have that drying effect on the skin and with the winter here, dry weather and dry skin are both negative factors. The Marine mineral skin toner has ingredients of water, seaweed extract, Phenoxyethanol, which I’m sure is a long word for natural..I guess, this toner is half gone I really enjoy using it, its lightweight, the only thing that that I can say negative is that the pump shoots out to much product, which is really wasteful, a little product goes a long ways.
The next product I tried was the Rooibos Tea antioxidant facial serum, I was really excited to try this serum, this retails for $88, this serum is made of water (aqua), Red tea, phenoxyethanol, and Hyaluronic Acid. I really love this serum, its an antioxidant which is great to help pull toxins from the skin after cleansing your face, its really light, and liquid-y, you only need about 2 pumps, because its easy to disperse over your entire face. The Rooibos tea serum, is very nice, its wet on the face, but once it dries it gives the feeling a tight mask. The serum is more easy to use than the toner, you can control how much you want to use, which is really nice.
I feel after using both in my skin routine, has been a great addition, my skin feels very hydrated, and firm. I usually have a problem with scaring, but they do seem a tad lighter, which is a bonus, but most of all it doesn’t dry out the skin.
PR samples were sent to me courtesy of Belize in you, all opinions and photos are my own.
I hope you enjoyed my review/post on Belize in you skin care. What’s your favorite toner? Have you heard of Belize in you skincare? Would you be willing to give it a try? Let me know in the comments below.

So, for the past month, I have been buying new products to review, making a schedule on all my product voxboxes and samples to try, and let me just say I’m really excited to show you.
During the recent weeks, I got a lot of samples from Beautyspin, and since its Springtime, I really wanted to “UP” my game in the skin department. I selected 4 items and tried them all, and by all means lets get started.
The Ziaja Goat Milk Shower Gel, is a recent product that I’ve heard about. This is a miracle shower gel, it’s very lightweight, it smells very natural, I mean I wish I would have heard about it sooner. The shower gel is infused with all natural goat milk, and it does exactly what milk does for the skin, it feels your skin with vitamins, and it aslo gives it a nice glow. I love this shower gel it gives my skin a natural glow, and I suffer with eczema, and when I use it calms down all itching problems, redness, its just an overall great product.
The next product is the Olay essentials double action night cream. Okay, after a long day of school, and planning blog post, as well as family, all I want to do is take a shower and go through my night time routine. After, doing my facial, I have been using this night cream, and it works really well, I saw someone on youtube do a review on this product, and like the youtuber, I can’t give it any bad reviews. I only have been using it for a couple weeks and in that few weeks, my skin glows, and it evens out my skin tone.
Next is my favorite LIPSTICK. So, the lipstick of choice is Rimmel London Long Lasting Lip shade in the color “Cutting Edge” which is a very dark plum. I love this shade so much, I can now consider myself a lipstick-holic. This color is unlike any color, and whats the spring without a few darker shades. This color is BOMB, I swatched it and that was just one swipe. By far, one of my favorite colors from the collection.
And Lastly, is the OPI nailpolish in the shade ” Vampsterdam.” This color is so dark, and sexy, this shade is so my go to color. In the picture below I have worn it for a while, and have loved it. As dark as it is, you do have to put multiple coats on to get the darker shade, on the plus side it dries super quick, and the color stays on for at least a week and a half.
Well, thats all for my Beautyspin, also you want a chance to try out the things I featured in my haul click HERE👉Beautyspin (If you love Beauty Products this is the site for you). Also did you like this post, be sure to “Like” this post, also comment what tou love about spring.
I am a true devulger when iy comes to Lipstick. I go from matte to creamy, Red to Nude, and it just feels like I never have enough. Studio Gear Cosmeticssent me there True Lipstick Collection to review, and this was no dissapointment. Being that this is my first established Collaboration with a great Beauty Brand, the excitement just killed me when I seen there website. The True Lipstick line is a all matte line, and leaves a velvet finish, my smile stretched from ear to ear, because I can never find the perfect matte its either to dry, or not pigmented the way it appears. These shades are above amazing, I will hold these with my life.
Studio Gears’ True Matte Lipstick Collection is phenomenal. The lipstick line devuted in the summer, and the anticipation of getting the collection was well worth it. I love the collection, the lipsticks are so smooth, pigmented, and wearable throughout the year. Each color has its own personality, and I literally feel like I’m in another scenario with each color. There are so many looks I can do with each color. This line is literally unbelievable.
Top to Bottom: True Nude, True Mauve, True Magenta, True Red, True Pink, & True Plum
The True Lipstick collection is so amazing. They are a velvet Matte, which is up to par with the name. I love that the colors are very pigmented, but because its so matte, but you do have to reapply throughout the day, which is fine. When applying the application is pretty rough against my lips, but the aftermath results in an amazing look, so the finish is worth it. The look of the packaging is amazing by itself, the tube is a velvet black, which is very sexy and good to feel (wierd). I wore the true red all day while shopping, and to me if I’m running around and shopping, if a lipstick is able to keep up thats a plus for me.
Okay by admitting this, we are friends for life, I dont know if I’m the only one to smell makeup, but I can kind of distinguish my lipsticks & brands by the smell. These Studio Gear Lipsticks smell like Fashion Fair lipsticks, which is the brand my mom use to get, but I do like the scent, it takes me back like maybe 10 years ago ( 10 years old, basically).
The Collection is super amazing, I love the colors, application, Smell. This collection was one of the most fun reviews I got to do. I hope you enjoy this review, because if you do heres another gift, for my wonderful makeup lovers.
These lipsticks cost $18 each, which is pricey, by entering the code (use this code)-> passionforprada you’ll be able to get 10% off your entire purchase!
Have you guys heard of Studio Gear? What about the True Lipstick Collection? If so, whats your favorite color? Be sure to tell me in the comments.
Well, the VMA’S 2015 was Sunday, and it couldnt have been better. Miley Cyrus was the host, and i’m kind of glad they didn’t let her perform (well, she kinda did, but it was at the end) she did perform at the end but it was SUPER TAME, compared to last years jaw-dropping performances. I can say she did do a great job, minus all the F-bombs she dropped. When it comes to MTV VMA’s you never know what your gonna get, and at first I was Super scared but it was amazing. While I could talk about the amazing moments of the show, Im here to talk Best dressed at the VMA’S and one word to sum it up S Q U A D G O A L S!!
When you think Taylor Swift, you think S Q U A D G O A L S. Taylor was up for 10 nominations and won half of them. She showed arrived with her entire squad, might as well say her Marching Band of friends including Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevigne, Selena Gomez, and the rest of BAD BLOOD friends.
• Tay.Swift looked amazing, (I mean we all new she would be on best dressed) she wore a metallic, houndstooth Ashish design matching pants and crop top. Taylor looked like she walked straight from her “Bad Blood” set when it came to her makeup and hair. Taylor just looked amazing all the way round, and I’m Super Jelly of her super fashionable friends, I mean #squadgoalsforlife.
• Demi Lovato (another one of Taylor Swifts friends) looked super sexy walking the carpet for the vma’s. Demi wore a Nicolas Jebran Mini and showed off her toned legs, and sunkissed skin. You can see why she bessed dressed.
•Both Selena Gomez & Gigi Hadid sat with the “Bad Blood” singer,both looked absolutely amazing. Selena wore a all black Calvin Klien Mini while her friend Gigi Hadid showed of those runway ready legs in a Emilia Wickstead gown. They both looked super amazing without outshining one another.
• Its been a while since I seen Vanessa Hudgens, but you can guarantee when she shows up, she SLAYS the carpet. Keeping true to her Bohemian feminine style, she wore a Naeem Khan Blush gown. She looked so gorge with her tossled wavey locks, and a glow from miles away. She definitely earned her way to best dressed.
• Lastly, but not my least, is songstress Tori Kelly. Tori looked amazing with a high waisted shorts and top. Her beautiful yet natural look, was just perfect. Tori looked amazing as she flaunted her style on the red carpet, and looked even better for her performance on stage.
–Well, thats all folks!! These were my best dressed style stars of last nights event. Who was your favorite of the night? Also tell me who was your worst. I’ll be back with more post, love you guys😍
