afterGLO

Last week I told ya I was going to post about my makeup from new Lorac afterGLO Palette {here}. Saw this palette via Instagram a few months ago. I finally got it from Ulta and I'm in love. It's a perfect colorful palette for summer!





Eyeshadow Breakdown
1.)
Start with shadow #3 and blend it into your mid/upper crease with a fluffy blending brush {here}
2.) 
Then pack on #2 on lower lid with a flatter eye shadow brush like this : {here}

Dem claws



One thing I learned from Missy Elliot is "If you a fly girl get your nails done Get a pedicure, get your hair did". So basically what I'm trying to say is that I like to get my nails did. 
They received a lot of love this week, everyone wanted to know what color it was. So I thought I'd share with y'all since everyone kept bugging me about them.


It's two different colors. 

I first painted my Nails with China Glaze {Deviantly Daring} I did two coats of this. Then I took {Pink} from Urban Outfitters on top. It's basically a matte neon pink glitter. My sister n law said it almost look like paint splatters. But thats it!

{Summer Wardrobe}

Today I want to talk about transitioning into Summertime attire. Here in Texas I've been pretty much wearing my summer wear for the last few weeks. I just wanted to show you guys what my typical summer time looks are.
 I like to think that my style is very versatile. If you go into my closet you can see anything from bohemian outlaw to 80's granny swag. I don't have one type of style on lock down. I tend to dress for my mood. I'm weird I know anyways, here is a list of my  basic summertime fine essentials:

jean shorts
white tee's
booties
sandals 
tanks
Skater dress

I feel very strongly that you cannot have enough shorts for summer. I believe in a good black pair, a faded pair, dark pair, a washed out, and of course a classic pair with no rips or holes. Oh and also  printed shorts and a clean nice white pair. Too much? Nahhh shorts are the most appropriate item to wear in summer y'all. Now with that I like to keep it simple lots of plain white tee's and tanks on deck. It's my go to outfit. Basic, but classic when decorated with the right accessories. Via statement necklaces and arm swag. Below I have put together seven typical looks you can see me rocking through the summertime.

Trendy Tips:




1.) Hats
Wearing a hat can change your look. I think hats also make anyone instantly look interesting and shows off their style in a unique way. I have a basic floppy hat, a classic hipster hat, and several snapbacks in my collection.

2.) Gladiator sandals 
These are the shoe for summer. Somehow Gladiator sandals are the MUST HAVE item of the summer so go get your self a pair. You don't need more than one so find a neutral pair that you can rock with anything. 

3.) Flannel
Flannel's aren't just for the winter honey. Nowadays I can't go out in public without see someone wearing this wrapped around their waist. I like to wear them when going out kinda as an J.I.C. (just in case) item. I always get cold whenever I go inside places, and since I live in Texas wearing a sweater or light jacket in summer isn't realistic I opt for a flannel. It's practical and always in style.



Jewelry
Because no outfit is complete without some eye candy. I tend to stick with lots of rings, necklaces, and bracelets. Earring are not really my thing. I need to be better about them, but I always feel like they are too much. I'd rather have a statement necklace than have them  competing with earrings. I feel it's too much, but if someone wants to show me how to rock both then help a sista! lol #SOS


Beauty Tips:
I never leave the house without these three things in my purse:

1.)Chapstick
2.)Bright lipstick
3.) BB/Tinted Moisturizer

All of them of obvious reasons. I hate when I don't have chapstick handy. Lip gloss doesn't cut it when my lips need to be rejuvenated. 


I also wanted to tell you guys about this new marketplace online called RAISE.com. They are the ones who asked to me write about what my style for summer is. Raise Basically they are a place where you can go to buy discounted gift cards. Or sell gift cards for CASH MONEY. #ChaChing But why sell gift cards for cash instead of using them?? Well say for example, you get a $100 gift card to Hollister (Heaven forbid) and you obviously don't shop there then you're stuck. Well now you longer are stuck just go to RAISE.com and sell it and keep that money honey! Now you can also buy gift cards as well so feel free to check it out. This was actually a very fun post to do so Thank you RAISE. Oh and you can >>> Buy Gift Cards Here

Current Faves

Current Obsessions





Kate Spade iPhone 'Toucan' case. Guys how cute and fun is this?? I had to have it. It's SO me I love the colors and the feel of the case. The beak doesn't bother me it's kinda nice to rest my fingers on. A perfect tropical accessory for summer!

The Melted Too Faced Liquified Long Wear Lipstick is everything you want in a lipstick. Not to mention it feels dreamy on. I'm a sucker for purple lipstick I have a handful and thought it wouldn't hurt to own one more. I'm glad I bought it because I don't really have anything as such. The applicator is awesome you have to squeeze the tube and the product comes out of tiny holes. It comes out slow and very controlled so it never gets messy. Color is very pigmented and stays on until you wipe off. Which is awesome try to imagine a stain without it staining your lips after you take it off. If I were you I would totally purchase this item! $21 {here}

(P.S. if you like my eye makeup here stay tuned later in the 
 week. I will be sharing my new fave palette)

Prom Babies

As you may know Prom season has been in full effect the last few weeks. Each weekend the chairs fill with young girls ready to get dolled up for a fun night out! Thought I would share with y'all some of my favorite looks. These ladies here are what I like to call my 'Prom Babies'.

This barbie below had a gunmetal dress so I gave her a crisp matte eye with a little bit of sparkle. A fresh flushed cheek and a soft pink glossy lip. I mean girl made my job easy being so damn pretty.

Stila eye shadow in Dune on lower lid

Napoleon Luminous Lip Veil (gloss) 'In The Flesh'

I guess you can say I'm obsessed with Napoleon Perdis products. (F.I.Y. the white dot in the photo on the R is lash glue drying)



Now this prom babie's brows were giving me LIFE. I didn't put a single product in them because they are perfect left alone. Oh and I wish I had gotten a photo of her lashes. They were out of control...thick & long and unbelievably incredible. She wore a turquoise dress and I paired it with a hot golden smokey eye. Along with a fierce winged liner.
EYES
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick 'Golden Pink' (lower lid) & 'Golden Broze' (crease)
Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow in All Spice (in crease top of cream shadow stick)

These girls were some serious babes, I wish I was half as gorgeous as they are when I was in high school. I was a late bloomer or as my brothers like call it 'a true ugly ducking story'. Oh and can we talk about how amazing their skin is? How annoying it must be being so perfect. Ahhh to be young again.....

Fruteria Cano

One thing I will tell you about having 5 brothers is that you get spoiled  A LOT. Not to brag or anything, but it's pretty nice. Earlier this week I went to dinner with my brother Justin and had so much fun. I made him take me to Fruteria Cano. If you don't know about this place then you're missing out. So much fresh fruit and stack on stacks of pineapple, mango's, and watermelons. It was nice having him treat me to some delicious-ness.



It was so colorful in the store I couldn't help but take pictures. Yes I was THAT annoying girl lol. I felt like I was in Mexico.




This was absolutely phenomenal. Fresh mango and coconut slices in strawberry yogurt and granola. There was so much mango and it was only $5 amazing! I recommend you try this place if you live near Lakewood. Yum yum!

<<>> Magnolia Tree <<>>

Call me cheesy, but I love a good sunset and long walks on the beach.  Haha maybe that was bit much (it was) now let's move on.  
Tonight I came home (Heath, Tx) to my parents house which happens to be on a lake. Dreamy I know. I wasn't really to excited to drive "all the way" out to Rockwall, but I HAD to raid my mom's bathroom and steal her shampoo and conditioner(pureology)she always has stuff like this in bulk. I think she is the only woman who hoards random products. It's like she has her very own walk in Ulta in her house. Now that I think about it...like this just hit me like a ton of bricks, but I think I am becoming my mother. OH GAWD! *Cue long thoughts about my own outrageous makeup stash* yes I am definitely my mother. Thanks goodness she's a babe. 


 The smell of my parents magnolia flowers had me running up to them and picking them off the branch like I was a little kid. I forget how big and flagrant these flowers are. After finding the biggest one I naturally I ran to the back yard to watch the rest of the sun set into the Dallas skyline. Sometimes I forget how beautiful Texas can be I'm glad that I'm reminded every time I come home.


Tonight made me realize that summer is here, and I still don't look like Jessica Biel. Somebody buy me that detox tea I see all over Instagram pleaseeeee!  Oh and if you look close enough you can see a little beetle making it's way out my top. Yes, don't let your eyes fool ya real. I got more to come from that guy soon just you wait.


Totally looks like I could be in Hawaii, right?
