Fall Fashion Guide || Passion for Prada

Hey Loves,

{*Enter sigh of relief*} Fall is approaching in a matter of time, so let the fashion revamping BEGIN! I am so excited about autumn season; the horror movies, hot beverages, fashion week, and of course the endless fashion choices. Fall in Virginia can be a bit tricky when deciding “What to Wear” because it’s still coasting on the warm weather, but it’s still the season of the common cold {* enter rolling eyes*} — nonetheless Fall is about swapping out our Sandals for Booties, Bikinis for Sweaters, and Shorts for faux leather leggings. I have selected a few items from dresslily, that will add a spark to your wardrobe.

Does it come in Animal print?

Who says animal print is to tacky to be Chic? Animal print can be worn in the best of ways, pairing it with a solid color and adding accessories will add sophistication to the outfit at hand (PSA— no animal print should be worn as a complete outfit unless you’re reaching for Jersey Shore status.) haha. Click to shop my favorite animal print items.

Accessorize

To have a complete outfit you must have: 1. Handbag, 2. Necklace(s) 3. Rings 4, Shoes If you check off each item then you are 100%   complete. Having the right pairing of accessories will make your day, and you can get a good Instagram picture out of it. Here are some of my favorites!

{*Add Layers*}

When it comes to fall weather, layers are your friend. Scarves, Hats, belts; all are contenders of adding a subtle; yet fashionable touch.

Jackets a bunch

Denim, bomber, suede, leather; all styles of jackets that will set the tone for your outfit.


This is just a few of my favorite picks, Dresslily carries a variety of items, and now that fall is approaching swiftly this site is definitely a go to for the latest in fashion trends. Did you think you were leaving without a gift Use code:DLBF20 to get 20% OFF

The Facial Bar | Clear Skin & Glow’n

Hi Lovelies, 

When it comes to clear skin, I am willing to pay tons of cash for every great product created for skin, and I know I’m not alone. Numerous brands has come out with skincare as a branch off with the same promise, ” The #1 product that will make you toss your other products” well I actually came across a wonderful brand that show results. 

The facial Bar, a skincare & Beauty brand, sent me some samples to try out, over 2 months ago, and here I am with my review…..shall we begin.

My skincare changes constantly, me being a black women there are numerous products that does not support my type of skin, which is constant back and forth with creams and products. The facial bar, is a skincare and beauty brand that supports women of color skin issues, like acne, dark scarring, etc. When I read more on the brand, I found out they are cruelty free, as well as free of parabens, talc, and formaldehyde.

I was sent a Diminishing clay mask, and a gorgeous highlighter.

The Diminishing Scar clay masque, is made with all natural ingredients; Pumpkin clay, Tumeric powder, Cranberry powder, Aloe Vera, all things that your skin needs. On the website it says to use it twice a week, to see results, so I did just that. I really like this masque, it helped with the redness of my skin and cleared up some acne that I had on my cheeks. When you first put it on, it does have a slight burning sensation, after it just starts to harden. After using it the first couple times, I did see the improvement and natural glow to my skin. Being that this is a powder based mask, it allows you to mix it with other home ingredients, I used Milk, lemon, and honey ( which is a natural skin brightener combination). The product costs $16, which for a organic product is a really great price. Overall, this product does work for me, I like how it’s powder based, it gives you the choice of mixing it with whatever is good for your skin, or to use it with something as simple as, water.

Highlighters have become part of a daily routine for, it seems like I don’t need to do a full face beat, just some highlighter will get me through the day. I tried out one of their highlighters and got the shade Rose. This highlighter is so beautiful, a picture can not do it justice, you would have to see it in person. I love this shade, its easy to build, and blend out. when I swatched it on my arm, it almost felt like air, it wasn’t clunky or chalky, it felt very high end, if not better. They have a 7 shades that looks great on all skin tones, for $14 ea. 

Overall, the Facial bar, has amazing products for amazing products, and being able to deliver high quality products, for affordable prices is even better. Don’t believe me, check out the Facial Bar

Hi Lovelies.

So, christmastime is here, and I love the fact of sitting and watching ELF all day long, but when it’s time to go to an event you have to look your holiday best.

Today I am reviewing a few lipsticks of Rimmel Londons’ long lasting collection, Kate’s collection, and the matte finishes. It seems that I kept the theme of the holidays, all the shades are in the Red shades family.

In a beauty world taken over by liquid lipsticks, its always good to revert back to a nice; moisture lipstick. I love the Rimmel london lipsticks, they are all very pigmented, and they swatch nicely. All the shades have a touch of shimmer to them, even the matte ones. I love that the formula of the lipsticks are not heavy, they apply smoothly to the lips, and even with one swatch the shades shows up great; kind of like the Maybelline Whisper collection, they are great, trust me I don’t talk about anything I don’t like.

I do think that the quality of these lipsticks are great, for a on the go type of person, I enjoy the use of a good lipstick, but these are great.
