The Beauty of a Brush

Every time I pick up this brush I feel inspired. The “Power” Paddle Brush by Sarah Potempa reminds us why we (and our hair) are beautiful. The words “Empowerment, Ambition, Strength, Beauty, and Love” are proudly displayed on the back of the brush. It’s a great reminder at the start of each day.

OOTD: Living Grey in L.A.

Wow what a day…I spent the entire afternoon in Downtown L.A. learning about the art, music, and history of Los Angeles. I kind of felt like a tourist in my own city.

They fit perfectly and I love that the waist is the right cut. I’m definitely not a low cut…

OOTD: Out with the Girls

I had an opportunity to hang out with some of my girls this weekend. After a long day, I didn’t want to wear anything too complicated, but I didn’t want to wear sweats out either. I decided to go with this beautiful Blue Crepe Lattice Cold-Shoulder from Torrid. I even threw my hair up in a high bun. I love the top, but after looking at these images, I feel like I should’ve chosen a…

OOTD: A Night with Salt-N-Pepa

When I was in elementary school, I was in cheerleading and we put together a dance routine to “Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa. So innapropriate, I know! LOL! I’ve loved them ever since.

I didn’t know what to wear, then I remembered I had this jumpsuit from Torrid in…

It’s polka dot time again! Although the black with white dots color scheme is the original, you’re not limited to just those colors. Let’s get a little adventurous and try something a little different. You can find polka dots in lots of different color combos and sizes-from tiny to big. And if you’re one of those that doesn’t like to wear prints, you can grab an accessory like a shoe, scarf, handbag, and even an…

Beauty Buzz: JAFRA Makeup Remover

I’m one of “those” girls that hates to take off their makeup before bed. Yeah…yeah…I know. I especially, dislike trying to remove eye makeup. I can never find a remover that is gentle enough and does its job. Little did I know, the answer was under my nose the entire time. I was gifted a bottle of JAFRA’s Makeup Remover for Eyes and Lips ($12) last year and forgot all about it. I don’t know what…

I can always count on my good friend Ivory for inspiration. If you haven’t had a chance to check out her blog (www.IvoryJinelle.blogspot.com) you’re missing out. She’s fashionably fearless.

Yesterday, I saw her wearing a denim jacket and it reminded me of the one I had sitting in my closet.  I picked this one up at Forever 21 months ago and haven’t…
