OBSESSION

determined...

Can you guys believe that March begins in a couple days?  We are almost through first quarter of 2014!!  

SO this post is a more like a challenge to myself.
I want to be more involved in street style blogging, so I am giving myself the challenge of getting at least
5 street style posts up per week starting March 1st! 
SUPER ambitious, but I can do it with careful planning!!

My biggest excuse right now is the weather.  
In Michigan right now, every other day it's snowing or BEYOND cold outdoors, but I cant let that stop me.  

I am FULLY determined!

I think that I can also do it by looking at some of my favorite style bloggers.
These guys are so awesome at styling and I gain so much inspiration from them!  

in no particular order
Katy @ Katy009 Fashion Agent
Airie @ Fashion to Live
Raliat @ The Fashion Fanatic
Mimi @ MimiGStyle
If you guys would like to join me, do so and comment the link in the latest post and I will pick my faves for that week!
Cheers to big ambition for something I love so much!

spring inspiration...

Am I the only one who is absolutely SICK of winter?  This has to be one of the worst winters we have experienced in a mighty long time in Michigan!  I know, I should be used to it right?  
WRONG!  I can't get outside and shoot ootd's, it's been snowing for 8,641,248 days (at least it seems)!
I am a summer baby and I am ready to travel up north for a few fun in the sun getaways...once summer actually gets here!  
Until then, I have been scouring all over the net looking for spring inspiration for my wardrobe and home.  Also for my mind, body and soul.  Here are a few of my favorites!



 

SO just know that I welcome you Spring.  I am (impatiently) awaiting your arrival with open arms!

va va voom! ~ vday look #2

Valentine's Day look numero dos!  Va Va Voom is most certainly fitting for this ensemble!  I based everything off of this lovely dress.  It's from Lolo's Kloset and you may remember a few posts that I did wearing her fashions!  If not, here's a reminder!
(again, midi dress fascination)
Let's start off with my makeup!  Sultry smoky eyes and bold red lips is what I envisioned when I put together this look!  
For my hair, I just threw in some clip ins and pulled back into a ponytail.  A little side bang completed the look.
The fit is, of course, this gorgeous dress from Lolo's Kloset!  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!

earrings and bracelet from my stash!
Let me know how you like!  I absolutely LOVE this dress!  
Happy Valentine's!

soft and romantic - vday look #1

I didn't know if I was going to do a Valentine's Day series this year.  We are super busy at work and there aren't enough hours in the day it seems.  I managed to get this one done (and I will be doing another one in the morn).

I've been noticing Kim Kardashian's style changes lately, where she is wearing tons of midi skirts.  I am obsessed with midi skirts and dresses right now, so it was only right for me to attempt this look.  Hers are more daring than mine being that her body is INSANELY gorgeous!  I am halfway there y'all, then I will be a little more ambitious with my look! :)

Let's start with the makeup!  I wanted to do something really light, airy and romantic, so I used pinks and golds.  Gold in the middle surrounded by pink with a hint of purple on my outer eye.  My blush is pink with hints of gold in it and my lippie is actually coral with a pink gloss on top.  All of the details will be in the video (once I am done editing it)
My hair, I attempted a double halo braid with a pony in the back.  I received tons of compliments on this style, so I hope to recreate it again!  Please excuse my kinks in the back!  I took a shower right before doing this and didn't take a second look at the back! o_O
The fit is a blousy, pleated bodysuit paired with a midi and some pointy toed stilettos.  Lots of chains and dangly earrings to cap it off!
top + skirt:: body central
shoes (sav, sold out):: shoedazzle
earrings:: sassy jones boutique
chains:: forever xxi
Let me know how you like it!  I love how it turned out and cant wait to get more midis!!
Happy Valentines!

short VS long

The ultimate girls best friend: versatility in hair!

This post is about these fabulous clip-ins.  These are from a company called AB Hair, which sells everything from clip-ins to wigs.  Their prices are very affordable & shipping was extremely fast.  These work exceptionally well for me since I have thinner hair.  It doesn't give me any falsehood of more density, but the illusion of fabulous length! 

The set of clip-ins that I have is the 7 piece Deluxe Set, which is 24" long.  The lengths of the wefts/how many clips per weft are 
two 6" wide weft - 3 clips/weft
three 4" wide wefts - 2 clips/weft
two 2" wide wefts - 1 clip/weft

Let me know what you think of these!  I love them!!  Extremely easy to apply and the quality of the hair is amazing!  I can see me having these for a long time!!

Run and check out AB Hair and get your length on!

l.a. girl pro conceal hd concealer review (all 18 shades)

Hey guys!  I wanted to drop in and show you guys these amazing concealers!  I was searching on YT for good, inexpensive concealers to practice my highlighting techniques and I came across Ulovemegz's video talking about these L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers.  I watched a few other videos and I was convinced to give them a try!

I ordered a couple different shades (after getting some help from my Instagram friends) from IKatehouse and ended up finding toffee to be more suitable for my skin tone!   I used it in a few of my Holiday Glam videos and I fell in love instantly!

Here are some swatches of the colors.  (I tried to get as close to the color as possible)
To wrap things up, I am total love with these concealers!  You guys can find them at IKatehouse and for an affordable price.  Individually, they are $1.99, or the entire set is $31.99!  This is the only place that I order mine from!  I will be uploading the video sometime this week, in which I will be announcing a small giveaway where one of my subbies will win the complete kit compliments of me!  So keep a look out for it!
