Ahh Wednesday. Good to see you again. Means we’re once step closer to the weekend and get to look pretty in pink! This week’s Pink Wednesday feature is dedicated to the pink tinted fragrance I’m wearing today, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. I’ve actually had this scent in my stash for quite some time now but kinda forgot about it until rummaging through some things yesterday. I can’t believe I’ve neglected Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet for so long because this perfume smells heavenly! With notes of Italian mandarin, peony and white musks Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet makes a wonderful spring scent. It’s very light, sweet, crisp and floral. I had to make a little room on my vanity for this beauty so I could give a little more love.
What perfume are you wearing today?
When it comes to fabulous fashions, there’s no better place to get your fix than the Met Gala! The ever so glamorous annual fundraising event took place last night and almost broke the internet as celebrities cleaned up in their best to don the red carpet. The theme of the night was China: Through the Looking Glass, so the ladies were draped in tons of lace, silk, jewels and more to dazzle our senses. Here’s a roundup of the best looks of the night:
You had to know this was coming! Beyonce slayed the red carpet in this bedazzled Givenchy dress she paired with subtle Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. You can tell Bey was “feeling herself” as she posed and flicked it up for the cameras like a true diva. Work it, Bey!
What’s better than A Kiss of Milk & Honey? A Kiss of Moisture! Just when I thought I was on to something with A Kiss of Milk & Honey I stumbled upon something even better when I decided to indulge in a BOGO offer with A Kiss of Moisture. This lip balm is just everything!
I don’t usually get excited over eyeliners but when it comes to the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayons things can get a little crazy. I seriously love these liners! Blaquer is one of my holy grail black eyeliners (I even got my mom hooked) and I’ve enjoyed every other shade I’ve tried so far (like Jazz(Berry)) so I’m screaming on the inside about these new permanent shades making an appearance this summer. Take a look!
I’m starting to think Make Up For Ever wants all of my money! I’m already obsessed with the Pro Finish Powder, Aqua Brow and Aqua Eyes liners. Now the genius minds over at Make Up For Ever are trying to get us all hooked on the new Artist Plexi Gloss.
It’s no secret that I love makeup like a fat kid loves cake. Lipsticks. Highlights. Blush. I love it all! However, most days I’m either a) feeling too lazy or b) too pressed for time to apply a full face of makeup. But when I feel like going all out (think full force slay) I like to start off with a foundation that blends easily, wears well and lasts all day. And that’s exactly what I get from the Maybelline Fit Me line. I love that stuff!
Happy Monday! I can’t remember the last time I did a Manicure Monday post which is kinda terrible considering I’ve changed my polish 3 times in less than 2 weeks. That’s a lot of missed mani posts! But I’ve finally settled on a color (and remembered to take a pic) so I wanted to show ya what’s currently on my nails–Essie Marshmallow polish. I’ve worn this sheer, jelly white polish before and loved it so darn much I decided to pull it out in celebration of all this sunshine and warm weather. And look, it even matches my truck!
What’s currently on your nails?
Happy Sunday guys and gals! I don’t know about you guys but I’m just so relaxed right now. Like, I can’t even begin to explain the level of zen I’m experiencing today. Not only am I off today but it’s a breezy 75 degrees here in Detroit and I have like no plans today–other than a relaxing pedicure. And to top it all off, my dad just finished making me a sausage for lunch. It’s like I’m in heaven right now!
Like most people, I love to shop. It’s just fun and exciting to buy new stuff. I can’t really explain it, but I like it. A lot. What I don’t like, though, is shopping in stores. Most times it’s just a hassle. There’s stuff everywhere. People are all in the way. And sometimes sales associates can drive me a little nuts. I definitely prefer online shopping! But every now and then I have to trek to the stores for something I either can’t wait for or a deal I wouldn’t have found online.
Ahh, another MAC collaboration with beautiful packaging! These collections always get me so excited. Not only do I get to decorate my vanity with some new limited edition pieces but I also get to learn something new. I don’t know about you but it’s rare that I’m familiar with MAC’s current flavor of the month. So it’s pretty cool that I get to learn about icons and designers I probably never would have discovered on my own. Take the upcoming Guo Pei collection for example. I had to flex my Google skills to find out Guo Pei is a famous Chinese haute couture designer. But I was only prompted to do so when I saw this gorgeous promo picture floating around. Just look at that packaging! And that fluidline! I’m glad MAC decided to tease us a little (and teach us a lesson or two) but I’m dying to learn more about this collection and when it will be available. Because, quite frankly, I’d like to learn more about palette and powder too. Fingers crossed more details arise soon!
