New Do!

I’ve been needing to change up my hair do for some time now. I usually love to slay a wig with a bang that hangs over my eye on one side (my signature look lol)

but with the spring time here and the weather getting warmer I figured it was time for something new!

I haven’t worn box braids in over 7 years because I hate the length of time it takes me to do them but now that I have them in those seven hours and the soreness in my fingers is well worth it! I love being able to just get up and maybe do a top knot and go if I want to. When I work out I don’t have to worry about sweating out my hair either! #Winning!!!

Vanity Girl

Here lately I have been obsessing over makeup vanities! I’m constantly watching makeup collection and storage videos on Youtube and pinning pictures of vanities on Pinterest waiting on the day I get the chance to get a vanity myself! I currently have my makeup on my dresser, in makeup cases, and in one of those plastic 3 drawer bins on wheels. I know right so lame!

I have a dream of a white parsons desk with clear acrylic makeup drawers and holders with pretty girly trinkets all over

something like these I found on Pinterest

I have my sight set on this parsons desk from walmart for $53.53

I know everyone goes to Ikea for things like this but I like to keep it frugal where I can!

Now what is a vanity without a beautiful mirror here are a few of may Pinterest faves

It’s all about the glam when it comes to the mirror!

Now last but not least is the seat I will be in for hours playing in my makeup! Now the seat has to be fitting for a QUEEN darling!

I can see it now! My hubby would have to pull me away from my space because I wont leave willingly lol! Add a small chandelier for some extra sparkle and some pretty framed quotes and I will be set!

Lipstick Diaries: Milani Matte Glam Review

Remember that beautiful Milani lipstick I posted last week?

milani Matte glam

Milani

Gorgeous right?

Or so I thought…

I love Milani’s packaging. The gold just screams “places me on your vanity so I can make it pretty!” and for just under $7 the price is perfect.

When I swatched this lipstick on my arm I was excited about the pay off

oh but when I put it on my lips….

I just was not impressed!

I’m sooo sadddd

With a name like Matte Glam I was expecting a little bit more. I know I’m a chocolate girl but the color just did not pop on my skin tone. Maybe it will look amazing on someone with a lighter skin tone. I’m not giving up hope on Milani’s products at all but this one I’m going to have to pass!

Beautiful Fridays

Sorry guys its been a while since my last post. I’ve been in a personal fog to tell  you the truth. But I’m hopeful that it wont last too long especially since the Spring season is approaching. I wanted to share with you a few spring beauty items I recently purchased and somethings were gifts to me as well. I look forward to adding some color into my life (in more ways than one!)
