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!

SPRING IS HEEERRREEEE!!!!!!

I could not be more thrilled. No cold weather or random snow storms in COASTAL GEORGIA. Now that it’s officially and consistently warm outside, I feel certified in wearing my florals and being chased by bees; not really.

I am loving spring trends: stripes, tops that tie, tassel earrings and large flower prints. I’m a bold kinda gal, of course I paired these prints and patterns together for the perfect look for Memorial Day, public speaking event or any Wine and Cheese festival.

For the PERFECT pop to break up the red, Yellow is another hot color.

Holiday Styling- ILA Ball

This was the second holiday event styling Keenya.  The first look was a festive holiday green dress. So for the ILA Ball, we had to do something completely different, but how? She was already bold and a stand out in the last number.  I knew we could not do red for this particular event because everyone (300+ women) would’ve flocked to red.  The only choice was to be loud. What better way to do that than dripping in GOLD.

One of the trends this fall are colors that tend to be seen in other seasons– blush, florals and oranges.  I love orange and the different variations…definately my tones (pulls out the gold in my skin).  And as you know, i’m a huge fan of jumpsuits and onesie fits, so of course when I see them in stores, I gravitate towards them.  There were several different colors and I tried on the royal blue, but I have a ton of blue and was missing a super bright piece in my wardrobe. Aaaand, it was on clearance.
