A little set back this week on posts including this one. But it’s okay many more important things had to be done still going to be consistent. As I’m listening to this Lil’ Mama interview at 105.1 Power The Breakfast Club i’m about to float through this post. The title is honestly all about the shoes I’m wearing. One word. LOVE. These I purchased from Simmi online, they are inspired from “Aquazzura” Wild Thing shoes. But to keep it real I for one was not really about to spent $800 + on shoes. No thank you. At first I saw them, saw the price but wasn’t willing to spend the money, that is where I did my research. I one day was online shopping for clothes on Lulus.com and saw them there. One that looked similar. I was freaking out. I didn’t think twice and ordered. I got them in the mail and was severely disappointed because the material, color, shape just everything was so off. So I automatically returned them. I got so upset until I randomly stumbled upon this website and saw them again and I gave it a try.  And they were perfect. These are honestly one of my favorite pair of heels I own.

New Year

DSC_2212

HAPPY 2016! Time flew by just like my skirt that I wore this past week. It’s so strange it’s December and I had the nerve to wear the following things; skirts, slip on’s and sweaters (no coats). This winter started of very strange here in New York it felt more like fall. I took advantage however and wore my skirts and went on about my business, don’t get me wrong I love doing that but I really want it to snow. Like Hello? Snow? Where are You?

During the summer I purchased this blue suede fridge crazy looking skirt. I am beyond happy I did it’s beautiful, only disappointing thing is it’s pretty large on me although I ordered the smallest size, yikes. Eventually I will have to take it to a tailor to take off some inches, so I can where it with other tops other than sweaters as pictured. It’s getting cold so I am glad I was able to get to where this one last time before the actual cold front hits. Once again Happy New Year!

Gift Guide for Her

 

2 posts? In one day? What!!!
Okay as promised here’s a Gift Guide but for HER now. I have a bit of a theme going on here with the all black, but I can’t help it. I have a couple of male followers that will thank me later, so you’re welcome in advance. All of the items are under $80 with the exception of one (those booties) in the image above only reason I put them there is because look at them they look good but here’s an alternative that cost less plus I’m extremely frugal so if you’re like me I’d go with these  (similar here) looks alike only difference is your bank account won’t suffer as much. Your mom, grandma, sister, friend, anybody would enjoy.

Take a Breath(er)

That blue blue

FSCN6632

Some snaps of what I wore to go to my French final yesterday.

Luckily, I actually got some pictures from yesterday considering the fact I have a nasty allergy ? reaction on my right eye since early this morning. Actually it’s a good thing I took yesterday to snap some for Friday’s post. Okay so I’m currently, sitting in the waiting room in the hospital waiting on my doctor to call me in and see what is the deal with my eye, I mean I haven’t eaten kiwi’s (allergic) so it can’t be that … so is it possible that I am now allergic to something else let’s hope not. I would honestly love to show you guys but I don’t think you guys would like it so much ha.

But honestly sorry for the not so decent photos on this post.It’s absolutely freezing and I was not trying to go outside and pose until I get the nicest captures … sorry but not happening. I also really love that when I’m actually up and ready to go out snap some pictures on my look it’s freezing and I tend to go on about my business and do something else, whoops!
Not to mention my dawg on tripod .. don’t even get me started. I set up my tripod and 5 seconds later it automatically knocks down my whole camera. These are pictures as I’m trying to not run late for class, rushing as well to watch some Sportscenter and shamelessly jamming to KiD CuDi at seven in the morning.

Hopefully my neighbors do not mind, doubt it. But yesterday was one of those days I wanted to just wear a single color so why not blue, not my color at all but I was getting tired of wearing these grey and dull colors like I have been for the past couple of months.

So here you go plain and sucky pictures … I’m sorry folks. Have a good old day let’s hope they call me in soon I’ve imported, edited and written for this post and still nothing it’s been about two hours already. ugh

Photo Diary: Dominican Republic

DSCN4610

Okay, so I know I’ve been gone for much of December, buuuuut because I went to the Dominican Republic for a little over 2 weeks. There’s SO MUCH to say and write about this trip that it will be impossible to end . First things first is, Dominican Republic is a beautiful place … delicious food, vibrant houses, good music and joyful people well most of the time ha. Not to mention the architecture, the land itself, is all so beautiful. I usually go every year or two and usually go during the summer but this time I went during the cooler time of the year which made a huge difference. The temp wasn’t overwhelming the first couple a days with nice breezes as you sit and rock yourself in the rocking chair, I think going during the winter is a big plus.

Started the trip in the Capital, then took off to Nizao where my family stays, Bani the next day then back to Nizao. Then, La Romana, Higuey, then back to Nizao then Saona Island then back to Nizao. The photos are in order from when I landed to the very last day of my trip which was yesterday. Not too mention I took my camera everywhere and have about over a 1,000 photos not to forget photos on my phone which adds about 500 + more. But I’ll obviously wont post them all because that’ll be overwhelming for people to continuously scroll down. So i’ll try key word TRY to narrow it down to as little as possible. There was so much good food, good people, good music, and just endless new adventures along the trip.  It was definitely a great way to spend my winter break there, not to mention weird being home. I hope you enjoy the photos, that I wish I can show all. Happy New Year!
Happy 2015

Easy Way to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

It’s finals week and needed to take a break and do a post so here it is. If you’re anything like me you have a serious problem getting up and cleaning your makeup brushes. I can get rather lazy, and completely try to forget that they need some cleaning and I’m talking weeks of no cleaning them and then I wonder when I put on makeup it goes on rather weird. But yea I did say weeks I can go with without cleaning them which can be bad as well all know and the product keeps adding on and on and on … That, right there is a big no no, because the germs and bacteria that can evolve on you brushes after using them a few times.

As you may know keeping your brushes clean helps along with maintain healthy skin because no bacteria will get to your face.For us non makeup artists, it is said to be good to clean your brushes weekly to prevent many things shadows not going on right, colors mixing and just have good skin overall. Taking care of your brushes equals them last for a long time. Hopefully these are helpful. There are also makeup brush cleaners that tend to be more on the expensive side of things and are obviously simpler and easier  to clean, the shampoo will do the same job unless you want to make sure your brushes are in tip top shape and buy some of those expensive products. Read below for my quick tips on cleaning them!

DSCN4098

Things you will need:

  • Lukewarm running water
  • Head and shoulders shampoo / or any shampoo you use that’s good quality
  • Dirty brushes
  • Small plate
  • A clean towel

  1. You’ll need to squeeze some shampoo (just a little) onto a clean small plate before dipping your brush head to it.
  2. first, you’ll need to let your brush run through the lukewarm warm for about a minute. Then dip your brush had to the shampoo.
  3. For this step make sure the palm of your hand is clean, you will swirl the head of the brush in the palm of your hand, you will start to see the color that was on the brush on your hand and sink.
  4. Then with the brush downward and your palm keep swirling until you see and feel no more shampoo of the brush. Squeeze to make sure it is clear.
  5. Lastly, lay your brushes to dry on the towel. Let them dry out for about a day, overnight.
