hat - H&M
shirt - Forever 21
pants - H&M
shoes - thrifted
purse- thrifted
necklace - Forever 21

And here's my Face Of The Day (FOTD)!
The makeup was inspired by Mary J. Blige's makeup on the cover of Essence magazine for this month of June! YES, a tutorial is coming up! ^_^

Outfit Of The Day: All Black Everything!

Did I ever mention that black is one of my favorite colors/shades of ALL TIME? No? Oh. My bad. Cuz it is.

What better way to compliment black than with goooooold accessories and colorful nails?

rings - forever 21 & h&m
necklace - forever 21
blouse - forever 21
shoes - qupid

for my face makeup, I settled for a natural looking eye, with colorful, semi-dramitic lips ♥

Here's the full outfit of the day vid ♥

What do you think of wearing all black? All for it? Or save it for a fune-a-gro (shout out to Madea...lol) ? Leave your thoughts below =)

NOTD: Revlon Nail Art FrenchMix in Sneak Peek

I looooove great drugstore finds! ♥
While minding my business in Rite Aid the other day, I stumbled upon this lovely nail art duo by Revlon! It was in it's own seasonal display, and calling my name... O_O

These Revlon Nail Art French Mix duos are meant to be used to create a colorful French manicure, but I'm not too fond of French manicures myself. Even though the colors are complimentary to each other, I love them more separately! My favorite color of the two would have to be the periwinkle blue color! It's such a pretty dusty blue! 

(above is the periwinkle blue color in the shade)

Have any of you picked up one of the new Revlon Nail Art French Mix Duos? If so, which one caught your attention? =)
