Black or White? Either Way Make it Look Good

I believe all black and all white outfits look good on EVERYONE. It gives you a certain kind of confidence that only these two colors can give you!

During the summer I am a huge fan of white jeans and white or tan colored muscle tees that are definitely getting more popular day by day!

If you tend to like all black better than all white that’s perfectly fine as well. All black is not only effortless;y but classy as well, making you look and feel as if you OWN wherever you are at! I absolutely PASS OUT when I see a handsome man wearing all black, it’s naturally sexy and I stand by my belief that anyone can pull it off!

If you can’t decide whether you like all black or all white, no worries, wear both! I recently purchased this polka dot skater dress from H&M and instantly fell in love with it,it’s definitely a showstopper. I was pumping gas and I felt like Carrie Bradshaw because a lot of people wear looking at me and smiling! It was so simple yet so chic!

Moral of this post is don’t be afraid to wear all white or all black or even do both! It’s simply and makes you feel as good as you look no matter where you’re going!

White Outfit: Top - Forever21. Jeans - Old Navy. Wedges - DSW.
Black & White Outfit: Dress - H&M. Heels - ShoeDazzle.
Black Outfit: Top: - JC Penney. Shorts - H&M. Shoes - Barefoot.

Thanks Ladies, Talk to you soon!


Your Best Accessory is Your... SHOES!

I could be the only girl in the world who has a love/hate relationship with jewelry. Don’t get me wrong, I love different kinds of necklaces, bracelets and earrings but I hate that I have to take them off at night only to put them back on again! It’s tiring and I really don’t have the patience to look in my jewelry box  for something that matches my outfit each day! Sorry ladies, I’m lazy! I wear the same earrings every day, sometimes a watch, sometimes a bracelet, and I wear an anklet every day!

But don’t think for a minute that I still don’t dress up outfits with accessories. I just so happen to use my shoes as accessories!

I have a very healthy appetite for new heels. Not only do I adore a classic black heel but I also love bold colored heels that make any plain outfit light up the night sky!

When I first started wearing heels, I only had ONE pair, which were these strappy black heels that I had purchased from Charlotte Russe.  I recently found them in the back of my closet and realized how UGLY they were and how low the heel was to the ground, 3 INCHES! But back then, I loved those shoes until I literally broke one of the straps.

Now 7 years later, I’m purchasing 3 or 4 pair of shoes a month, 5 inches or higher! Heels will literally make or break you! I think it’s essential for all ladies to have some heels that they feel confident in and know they look good in, even if it takes you walking around your house with your heels on constantly, do it until you OWN those heels!

Some of my favorite places to purchase heels are:

Tell me what heels you are looking at right now? I want to know!

Thanks loves XOXO!

How to Get an Amazing "False Lashes Look" without the False Lashes

If I had to pick one beauty item to bring with me on a weekend get-a-way, it would most definitely be an AMAZING tube of mascara, I cannot go a day without it! Already having naturally long lashes, I get a lot of compliments on them and many even ask if they’re fake! I like false eye lashes but I have not found a pair that I have absolutely positively fallen in LOVE with! I've seen some that I loved on OTHER women but none on myself.

So with that being said, I found a routine perfect for me to give the illusion of false lashes. With the help of a few great products, it’s easy to make your lashes “Gone with the Wind Fabulous” too! 

First, starting with an eyelash curler, you want to curl your lashes. Lashes sometime lose their curls for various reasons, so doing this step weekly will keep them curled making them appear fuller and longer. IMO this step also helps if you tend to get a lot of lashes stuck in your eye.

Secondly, I like to outline my eyes with a really black eyeliner, lately I've been using the Maybelline EYESTUDIO in the color “Blackest Black” and it works wonders! If you want to get the REAL DEAL false lash effect you have to start off with a neat, thick, and clean line. I like to just outline the top of my eyes and not the bottom, especially if I’m just going to work or school.

Next, I like to use a primer. Yes there’s is a primer for your eyelashes! I can definitely tell a difference on the days I decide to skip priming my lashes. I like to use M.A.C Prep + Prime eyelash Lash Primer, it comes out white and actually makes your lashes appear thicker. I wait a couple minutes after putting the primer on to let it work its magic on my lashes and also to let it dry clear.

After that I like to use a lengthening Mascara like Victoria Secret’s Lash Lust. I love this mascara because the wand is small and it lets you gain easy access to those hard to reach lashes closer to your waterline. I do only one coat of a lengthening mascara and allow it dry before using my volumizing mascara. .

Once the first mascara dries, I go for my Victoria Secret Volume Lift Mascara. I recently just purchased this mascara and I absolutely adore it. The wand is huge which is a dead giveaway that your lashes are going to be HUGE, and that is exactly what we are going for!

Lastly if you have any clumps because that tends to happen when you put on one or more coats of mascara, just take an eyebrow comb (Not Brush) and lightly comb them out starting from the ends to the roots, this will get most of the clumps out and VIOLA BIG BOLD BEAUTIFUL LASHES!


  • Instead of attempting to put mascara on your lower lash line, try coating your top lashes and BLINKING hard a couple of times. This will allow you to put mascara on your bottom lashes, giving your eyes an even bigger POP!
  • When buying a mascara try to get the BLACKEST BLACK they have!

Other Mascaras that I enjoy:
  1. M.A.C Haute and Naughty Too Black Lash
  2. Milani Total Lash Cover
  3. Maybelline Colossal Volume Express
