NOTD: Maybelline Beach Plum

I've never heard of plums growing at beaches, but for a nail color like this, I'll let Maybelline slide!
This is Beach Plum, a limited edition polish from Maybelline's summer collection from two years ago. It's a creme polish, and it's a 2-coater! So pigmented & lovely!

It's more purple-y pink than it is plum, but I think that's what makes it a great color for the summer!
I wish Maybelline would've released another summer collection this year (really, I wish most of my favorite drugstore brands would've released gnarly summer collections...grrrr), but it's ok... I'll make due with my old wanna-be-plummy friend here.

Beyoncé Inspired Outfit Of The Day/Look For Less + FOTD!

Hello lovlies!!!

Long time, no blog post....my bad :(
On the other hand, I have a nice lil' outfit of the day post for you guys today! 

This outfit was inspired by the lovely R&B goddess, Beyoncé!!!

Beyoncé is always a class act, especially when it comes to her outfits of choice. A couple of weeks ago, 
she was spotted in a red tuxedo blazer by Dsquared² and a pair of skinny leather pants by J Brand. The blazer runs for about $560, while the leather pants are about $600.

I LOOOOVED her outfit, and realized that I had similar pieces in my closet already (Don't you just love when that happens) !

Blazer - Forever 21 (it was under $30!) 
Faux Leather Skinny Pants - H&M ($32.50 or $34.50...can't remember the exact price. Sorry luvs!)
Black Patent Leather Cone Heeled Pumps - Steve Madden
Rings - H&M and Forever 21
Necklace & Earrings - Forever 21
Neon Yellow Clutch - Aldo

Here's my FOTD (Face Of The Day) ♥

For my eyes, I used the Too Faced Naked Eye Palette. That palette is one of my favorite neutral palettes of all time! On my cheeks, I was wearing Maybelline New York Expert Wear Blush in Pinch o' Pink #20. On my lips, I had on L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Fairest Nude #800.
