Baby, Its cold outside….

Hi Loves,

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.

Over sized Sweaters

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. 

Tell me do you love Oversize sweaters?

MOM JEANS????

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%.

Thigh High Boots

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?

besthairbuy |Virgin Hair

Hi Lovelies,

Hair? A topic that is more or less stressful for the average male or female. We have the daily struggles of color changes, whether we want straight or curls, and the obvious tug  war with should I cut it and start over. 

Weaves, braids, wigs, are put on this planet to make life easier. With the constant hassles of damaging hair, weaves are a safe way to change your hair as well as, protecting it from heat, and other negative hair factors. 

besthairbuy, a site that gives you options of virgin, synthetic, and wigs to change your look whenever you get that itch. Now I know the questions that comes next, With so many options, which do I choose for the best results? 

Virgin hair is the best hair to choose from if you want a natural look, what is it about Virgin hair that makes it the top of hair choices? Virgin hair comes in a variety of  Malaysian, Indian, Peruvian, and Brazilian. When it comes to virgin hair, it has natural fibers in that makes it look more natural, and act as natural hair texture, it also last longer when taken care of. Also the price of natural hair is more on the pricey side, rather than synthetic hair. The differences are more apparent with the use of water, and how it dries, as for the variety, each type of virgin hair reacts differently, lets start with Malaysian. Virgin Malaysian hair, is the softest of hair types, also the appearance is shiny, and gives a more natural looking finish.

Indian hair, has a very thick; appearance nor is it as shiny as the Malaysian hair. Indian hair has a range of wavy hair. Indian hair is one of the most natural looking when it comes to the affect it has when wet.

Peruvian Hair, a little coarser and thicker in texture than Indian or Brazilian hair. It blends well with normal African-American relaxed hair textures and medium Caucasian hair textures. The curly texture becomes more curly when wet or washed.

Lastly, Brazilian Hair is silkier and shinier in texture than Indian Hair. The Straight textures are not bone straight but tends to curly beautifully at the end. This hair holds curls very well and tends to hold curls longer than the Indian Hair.

Virgin Hair can be pressed, curled, and colored, all without harming the follicles of your underlying natural hair. With virgin hair it will blend in and look more natural when added in as a sew in weave or a full lace front wig. When it comes to Virgin hair, Beyonce, Zendaya, and Yara are all queens who swear by weaves and wigs.

Essence Makeup | First Impressions + Review

2017-04-15-16-50-39[1]

Beauty on a budget, yes please! I always go back and forth on luxury items and drugstore beauty, but the thing is beauty does not have to be expensive to work. 

Essence Beauty has been on the beauty scene for a while now and from looking at beauty reviews from Tati and Laura Lee raving about the products, I finally broke down and tried some of their products. These samples are *PR so my opinions are all my own. 

LRM_EXPORT_20170415_164201[1]

LRM_EXPORT_20170416_135703[1]

Lets talk highlight, I am a huge fan of glowing, but aren’t we all, the essence pure nude highlighter is a baked highlighter, which I like more for wearing daily because it gives you a subtle glow, but you still are LIT for the Gods. This highlighter is completely build-able and it doesn’t look cake-y when you’re building on the layers. I got the shade 10 ( be my highlight) which is a very beautiful golden champagne shade, this is definitely gorgeous for the summer, over your bronzer, just go crazy with it. This highlighter retails for $4.49 USD I mean SOLD

I love drawing attention to my eyes, and I’m not completely a “lash girl” ( only for pictures) but bold lashes are my go to. Essences’ “I Love Extreme crazy Volume” mascara, if you love the separated lash look, this is definitely the mascara that you want to get. I have been using this for the past week, and the compliments are non stop. This mascara has a long applicator which allows to get every lash evenly, the bristles are separated evenly as well, so they don’t clunk at all. This mascara pacts on the volume and gives you that full of lashes look. 

I received 2 liquid lipsticks and a creme lipstick, which I’m so glad they sent a nude shade because, that’s literally all I wear in the summer. As a girl who absolutely Loves liquid lipsticks, I have mixed feelings about these products, I got the shades 04 (Showoff) which is a very pigmented Coral red tone & 06 (making a statement) which is a mauve-y pinkish shade. I know that liquid lipsticks can be defined in a ton of ways, but I think of liquid lipsticks as a matte finish, but they are both pigmented shades, and the shades I received were muted which is gorgeous, they remind me a little of the L”Oreal lip paints, which is great. The applicator is short, and comes with a flat doe foot applicator, which I’m used to longer ones, but I can get used to this, perfect for on the go. I really love the shades actually, I just think that calling it “liquid lipsticks” is a little misleading, I think that this product leans towards melted lipsticks or lip paints. None the less the shades are gorgeous and I will definitely more in the future.

Top ( Make a Statement) Bottom ( Show Off)

If you tried this product tell me what you think about it?

I love pampering myself with mani/pedis, especially during the Spring/Summer because all the bright shades can be worn. I’ve tried essence’s nail polish before and talk about a small quantity that packs a punch.  The nail shade I’m wearing is “Club Hopper” which is a very Teal ( blue green) shade and It is so beautiful, The shade with one coat is gorgeous, a second just makes it pop. I really love the shade it’s super pigmented and very wearable in the spring season. 

Well that’s all for my mini haul/ first Impressions, WDYT?  Have you tried Essence Cosmetics? Did you like any of the products shown in the post? Let me know in the comments. Happy Easter

Milani Liquid Lipsticks | Metallic & Matte

Hi Lovelies,

Liquid lipsticks are a huge part of the makeup empire, and nothing is more exciting than a new launch of makeup…..okkkuurr!!! When Milani came out with their brand of metallic & matte lipsticks I headed to every store that carried it and brought what I could, cause I’m still on a budget, LOL!! I brought 2 metallic shades and 2 matte shades. I really love the formulas, They are heavily pigmented, and smells like vanilla. I do think that the product comes out a little thick, and it is very drying, it took a soccer team of products just to get it off my arm, but other than that, I still love both collections and I will 9/10 have the entire collection by the end of the month. 

Well I hope you enjoyed my little review of the Milani liquid lipsticks, if you did “LIKE” this post and “COMMENT” your favorite shade. BTW this post is not sponsored, I brought this with my own money and all opinions are my own.

Warby Parker |NEW COLLECTION EYEWEAR ’17 (Debut Feb 15)

Hi Lovelies.

Today I am super excited to show you the newest collection of eye wear by Warby Parker. As a fashion blogger, I love to try the latest in everything, and having the right shades have to be a must have accessory in the world of fashion.

“It turns out there was a simple explanation. The eyewear industry is dominated by a single company that has been able to keep prices artificially high while reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options.

We started Warby Parker to create an alternative.

By circumventing traditional channels, designing glasses in-house, and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear at a fraction of the going price.

We believe that buying glasses should be easy and fun. It should leave you happy and good-looking, with money in your pocket.

We also believe that everyone has the right to see.

Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work. To help address this problem, Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

There’s nothing complicated about it. Good eyewear, good outcome”.

Warbys’ Spring collection of eye wear and shades have captivated the essence of femininity and metal, which is a trend that has been debuting in collections of both fashion and beauty, so eye wear is just a chic additive.

I love this company, Warby Parker, makes prescription glasses that has its own unique style and also have chic styling of no other eye wear. I am proud to be one of the few first to see the entire collection, and get to share it with you guys.

Here are just a few of my personal favorites from the collection:

NYX Liquid Suede Lipsticks

2017-01-28-13-00-561

Hi Lovelies,

This is not a review, I brought all products with my own money, I just want to chit chat about the nyx liquid suede lipsticks because they are FIRE!!!

I love the NYX brand, year after year I feel like they are neck and neck with the high end brands, if not….better (*no shade*). Every time I go to target I buy one of their Liquid suede lipsticks, because these shades are heavenly pigmented.

I have a few of the older shades, but these shades serve me well. I have the shades: Stone Fox, Soft Spoken, Tea and Cookies, Amethyst, Sway, and Pink Lust. 

lrm_export_20170128_1306101

The Nyx Liquid suede lipstick is pigmented, this is only one layer swatches, imagine if I had multiple layers, I know pigmented AF. I think that the shades carry a great consistency, they are very smooth when applying. I love the formula of the shades, do they stay all day, not really, but it leaves a tint on the lips which is nice.

The NYX liquid suede lipsticks are suede but dry as matte, I love a good matte lip, who doesn’t now a days, but it still has moisture even when it dries matte. Which I like very much.

The applicator is long and on the thin side which is very convenient to get the corners and edges of your mouth when applying.

I look forward to their new shades in the Liquid Suede collection, the colors from what I saw are super bold and very pigmented.

I hope you enjoyed this little chit chat about the NYX liquid Suede lipsticks, be sure to “LIKE” and “comment” what’s your favorite shades in the collection? Have you tried the Liquid Suede Lipsticks? Do you like them?
