After seeing the Rachel Roy Spring 2012 collection last month I became an instant fan. She’s amazingly great at using different colors and fabrics to create edgy yet feminine pieces. It’s only right that now the fab designer (& former Dame Dash wifey) tries her creative eye in the makeup world. Continue reading →
In case you didn’t know (& I am working on a ’35 things you don’t know about me’ post) I use to be a makeup artist. For like 6 months, LOL. It was only because in the beginning as a photographer I didn’t know any artists who didn’t charge a Prada shoe to do makeup. This is before I made friends with my besties and I now trade services. But I’ve always loved makeup. I love getting dolled up even more than I love fashionable clothes (I’d rather just write about them, kinda). But anyways … Continue reading →
Every so often I am moved by a photograph. Whether it’s the composition, the clothes, the makeup it could be a host of things that inspire me. But this morning when I saw Ebony’s Magazine November issue with a very preggers and nude Nia Long I was literally floored. I immediately ran to my laptop to share these photos with you guys.
But I had first asked the question, how in the “sam hell” are these 40 + women like Nia, Halle, Jada, and many others looking more fab than they did in their 20′s. Good genes, no excessive drugs/alcohol, lots of spa visits, maybe? I mean it’s just amazing. Nia covers Ebony in her last trimester, hair flowing, and the perfect shade of brown.
You know I am a huge “I hate false lashes” cheerleader, but I am still a girl and every now and then I wanna bat my lashes and make my boyfriend submit to my every want. Wishful thinking right. Well insert Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes.
I’ve been using the Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes mascara all weekend and I have to say it’s a GLAM GO! The best part about the mascara is that the brush is shaped similar to your lashes. The brush goes from small to large which is also good for applying to your bottom lashes (which I have none of!).
Check out a few images I snapped for you guys. (AND Yes, I took them myself with my Canon – I’m a pro at self portraits baby). Continue reading →
Can you freaking believe that she’s actually 40? Wowsers, right! Jada is a native Baltimore gal with loads of personal style. From her start on Different World, to now as a mother of 3 gorgeous kids, and the wife of a beyond handsome hubby – Jada’s style has evolved into one we all should admire. Trendy, chic, and fabulous at 40!
Check out of a few of my fav looks from JPS, and if you see her scream out … HAPPY BIRTHDAY JADA!!! Continue reading →
