Outfit Of The Day: Harem Pants In The Winter Time

It's winter time, yet you couldn't tell in my part of the country!

I took these pictures in front of the "special" scenery just for you guys =)

Jacket - Macy's
Pants - H&M
Heels - Qupid
Rings - Forever 21 & Vintage

Now, here's some pictures of the videographer (my brother!) and I:

Outfit Of The Day: Destruction and Lace

Yes...another sweater OOTD =P

BUT it's not your "everyday" kind of sweater!

It's a "destroyed" sweater, and the "destroyed" look is very on-trend this year ♥
Sidenote: I have no idea why my outfit looks so "bulky" in these pictures! UGH!! It doesn't look bulky in real life. The first picture portrays this outfit the best!

Of course I had to wear my favorite shoes of the moment: my Qupid Puffin shoes!!!

Sweater - c/o LoveMode
Lace Dress - c/o LoveMode
Shoes - Qupid

I have more info on LoveMode in my upcoming OOTD video featuring this outfit, so be on the lookout for that! =]

COMING SOON! Urban Decay Naked 2 (New Naked Palette)

Ladies & gents, the rumors are TRUE! The Naked 2 Palette is coming soon!!!


 I am so ecstatic that it's actually being released, I don't know what to do with myself!

Look at this beauty...

It looks like the Naked 2 palette will come with a mini lip gloss, and a dual sided brush. No primer or double-ended liner this time guys :(
I must say, though, the brush looks very nice!

The shades that will be featured in this palette are Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, and Blackout.

This palette looks VERY promising! I know I'll be ordering one as soon as possible. What are your thoughts on the Naked 2 palette? Will you be purchasing one?

Outfit Of The Day: Mary-Kate Olsen Inspired!

heyyyyyy loves!!!

long time, no blog!
My computer has been "out of order" for over a week now, unfortunately, so I have been unable to blog and vlog as I would like to. My apologies for leaving you guys hanging for so long!

If anyone has any tips and tricks on how to use a Mac computer when it comes to editing videos & pictures please let me know! I'm using one for the time being until I can get my own computer up and running again, and I've been using only PCs all my life, so I need all the help I can get with this Mac! =\

Anyways, on to the outfit!

You love the granny swag, huh?

Mary-Kate Olsen is often seen wearing over-sized plaid shirts and sweaters, so I decided to wear a slightly over-sized flannel with a very over-sized sweater.

earrings - Forever 21
plaid flannel - Forever 21
shorts - Forever 21
boots - ALSO Forever 21 >_<
necklace - Jewelmint (c/o)

and here's a super unflattering pic of me (YAY)

my nail of the day (NOTD) is Wet n' Wild Blazed. I love the color, and it only costs 99 cents! ♥

Hope you like!

A Couple Of Semi-Recent OOTDs

I know, I know....I should've posted these pictures AGES ago...
But I was sick :(
So here they are now! Yay!!! 

This is the outfit I wore to see Lupe Fiasco in concert (he was AMAZING by the way).
And here's an outfit I wore out & about with some friends. Very basic, with the exception of the shoes...

 please ignore the black bra! I was sick, so laundry was the last thing on my

The heels are from Rocket Dog. I bought them at DSW shoe store, and they were my first purchase from that store! Let's just say I will absolutely be shopping there again ^_^

And here's the videos where these outfits were previously featured!

I need to personally thank Revlon. Seriously. They have made my lips verrrry happy!

I found these beauties at Walgreens last night, and guess what? This week at Walgreens, Revlon is buy 1, get 1 half off! You guys know I was a happy camper!! Lol!
I bought Strawberry Shortcake, Sweet Tart, Candy Apple, and Red Velvet.  
FYI: The Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters retail for $7.49 each.

I love the semi-translucent caps of the lip butters! Very cute, don't ya think? The quilted pattern on each cap is typical of every Colorbrust lip product Revlon sells. 
I've heard rumors of these babies being permanent, so let's hope that's true because they are amazing!

These lip butters are GREAT. Initially, I didn't think I'd like them because they are indeed a bit sheerer than a lipstick. Yet, they feel SO amazing on the lips! They are very very VERY moisturizing, and the texture of them is very creamy and nice. The pigmentation is not a big deal. Yes, they're a bit sheer, but you can always build up the coverage of the product.

I only have one swatch for you at the moment because I'm supposed to be getting ready for a Here it is ^_^

This is a swatch of the ColorBurst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake!
It's a beautiful light pink! It's perfect because it's not too light. It's just right. As you can see from my swatch, the pigmentation is pretty good as well!

Above is another swatch, but this time in the shade. So far, this is my favorite of the four. I'll try to have more swatches soon!

What do you think of these lip butters? See any colors that tickle your fancy?

Nail Of The Day: Nicole by OPI Ornament For Each Other (Holiday 2011)

This is Ornament For Each Other, a new glitter polish from Nicole by OPI for one of their holiday collections for this year! There are two holiday collections by them, one being Kardashian Kolors, and I have info on that collection HERE. The collection this polish came from includes 3 other glitters, but I only bought 2 (so far...).

Ornament For Each Other is a mix of bright red glitter and a warm gold glitter. It's PERFECT for the holidays! It reminds me of Santa...
Of course, I can't wait til the holidays, so I'm rockin' this beauty now! I got this polish at Target for about 8 bucks. This collection was just released, so your local Target should still have it. However, there were only four of each color to a display. So if you want it, get it ASAP!

What do you think of this polish? Let me know below! ^_^

Makeup Look In Honor Of Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Hello my loves!
To the surprise of many, October is not only Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's also Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
"The cycle of abuse ends with awareness."

After years and years of silence and indifference, it's great to see that our country is becoming more aware of what domestic violence is, and how it can affect any and every one.

I did this makeup look in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Purple is the official color associated with DVAM, so I used mostly that color for this look.

(close up of my bad skin...yay -__- )

Products Used


Wet N' Wild Vanity Palette (soft brown dupe as base color)
MAC Cutie Palette (used every color in the quad! White as highlight, light pink in crease & inner corner, Light lavender over the pink, dark purple in deep crease)
NYX Nude on Nude palette (the white, beige-y color on lid)
Wet N' Wild Greed palette (black shimmer color under lower lashes)
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara
Maybelline Eye Studio Blackest Black gel liner


Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzer Duo (for blush & contour)


natural lip liner
MAC Pink Friday lipstick

As a DV survivor myself, I'd like to let anyone who is or was in a bad situation know there is always sunlight at the end of the will smile again, and there is ALWAYS help if you need it.

The Nicki Minaj OPI Collection 2012: Bottle Pictures

So yesterday, OPI released "accurate" bottle pictures on their facebook page of the Nicki Minaj Collection, which is scheduled to release in January 2012. Here is the picture below:

According to OPI, Super Bass is a "deep, shimmering purple", and Pink Friday is a "bubble gum hue".
Therefore, to the disappointment of MANY nail polish lovers and OPI lovers alike, Pink Friday is NOT an awesome pink holographic polish like we assumed...

I really wanted a pretty holographic polish to play around with...oh well :(
One day!
These shades still look very promising! I don't know about you guys, but I seriously can't wait for swatches of these babies! Do you see any colors that you like?

Nicki Minaj OPI Collection 2012!


First Katy Perry...
Now Nicki Minaj...

Nicki Minaj will be doing a nail polish collection with powerhouse nail polish company, OPI! :D
The official launch of this collection will be in January, perfect timing for my birthday! He he

The six shades from the Nicki Minaj collection include:

"This charcoal sparkle flies with the stars in the skies."

  is this a HOLO?!?!?!
"Kick off the weekend with this mesmerizing pink!"

"I came to win, to fight..and to wear this aqua."

"I drove for miles just to find this silver-rainbow glitter."

"A lusty little lacquer that loves the 'lime'-light."

"A record-setting purple that 'shatters' before your eyes."

When I first saw these promo pictures, I wasn't too excited. Yet, now the more I think about what these colors could look like in person, the more excited I get!
I'm most excited for the Super Bass Shatter and Pink Friday, IF it's a holographic polish.
Yall know I'm a big Nicki Minaj fan, so I love how each polish name relates to one of her songs! Especially Super Bass Shatter and Fly, my two favorite Nicki songs at the moment! ♥
"Yes I did, yes I did! Somebody PLEASE tell 'em who the EFF I IZ!"
Do you see any must-have colors for yourself? I know I do!! ^_^
