If you know or follow me, you know I love makeup! I was super excited when Shayla Mitchell, aka MAKEUPSHAYLA on Instagram had another collar with another affordable brand, COLOURPOP!

I love the visuals and merchandising, but from following her over the years, it’s extremely important to support women of color in the beauty industry and of influence and more importantly, those around, everyday.

The collaboration has a pallet, 3 lipsticks, lip gloss and 2 highlighters. I purchased the bundle (everything) for $59! Such a great deal!

The quality is extremely good for an affordable brand. The eyeshadows are as pigmented in person as they are on YouTube, easy to blend and the lips are extremely creamy!

Check out this look I did with roses and golds in the pallet, perfect for Mother’s Day. You can check out other looks on her YouTube channel. I’ll definitely be wearing this all summer!

Flirty and Fun White Dress

Lace is a huge trend this season and it adds a delicate feminine touch. Teacher of the Year, Kiwonda never wears white, unbeknownst to me, but looks fabulous.  Just in time for spring and appropriate for several occasions and event, from weddings to work! The bell sleeves add a fun vibe to look and minimal accessories to complete the look.

Don’t be afraid to add a touch of color with heels…nude or black cold work, but these red Valentino inspired heels from her closet pair well.

Nicole Dillon

Nicole Dillon was Teacher of the Year at Oglethorpe Charter School. Nicole is definitely the “Do-It-All” woman. She has an enormous heart and oozes a joyous personality.  I captured her personality for the night in a bold Calvin Klein dress from Roz and Ali and all of her gifted accessories from Dillards.

Nicole is a gem, so bright gemstone colors are beautiful against her chocolate skin. This was a perfect look for an evening of recognition, but can be worn on a date night, church or any of her speaking engagements!

Dr. Laura Hooks

Dr. Laura Hooks was Teacher of the Year at West Chatham Middle School.  She’s a woman who knows what she likes and what she wants, just needed a little help mixing, matching and assembling.  I’d describe her personality as a subtle cool. The woman who loves to relax, but definitely knows how to have fun.

I picked out a great floral dress from Harper in Savannah for her. It’s bright, light and fun. I gave her two options of dressing it up for date night with her hubby or with a jean jacket and flats for walking the streets of downtown Savannah. All of her accessories were gifted from Dillard’s.

Flirty Holiday Look – Red on Red

Red on Red has been a fall trend this year and I have to say i’ve been dying to find the perfect shades to wear pair together.  What better time to be ultra festive in red than the holidays.  I love this look! It’s flirty, sporty, bold, sassy, don’t mess with me, don’t mess with my man and giving me some salsa vibes.

Best Affordable Holiday Look

Holiday parties and formals are in full swing now that December is here.  I’ve got the perfect look for your corporate holiday gathering or a night out on the town with your girlfriends or beau.  Think Bold…Bright…Striking, and it doesn’t have to be expensive.  This look was under $75.

Hey peaches 🙂

The other day I posted a daytime (and nighttime) friendly peach look with this SAME top….here is a great Friday/Saturday night option.  Perfect for those warm summer nights, salsa dancing, date night….a great birthday outfit. Very sexy and not entirely too revealing. It’s the perfect touch of skin.

If I don’t find anything to die for, i’m definitely wearing this for my birthday!

Perfect ANYTIME look + Glistening Skin

Now that Spring is in full bloom i’ve fallen back in love with jumpsuits! Best part, they’re perfect for so many events. Casual. Wedding. Birthday. Date Night. Work (with a sweater). Dinner. Movies. Festival. Blind Date. Probably not functional for skydiving, but you catch my drift?

And with all the arms and back out, it’s the perfect time (well, anytime to me) to capitalize on body shimmer.  I LOVE Nivea’s Essentially Enriched Body Lotion with Almond Oil.

It. Won’t. Fail. You.

And because i’m extra, I dusted my favorite face highlighter over my skin (collar bone. shoulder. bi/triceps (make em pop girl).  Your girl was gleaming. Metro BOOMIN. Other deets below.
