What comes to mind when you hear the word flannel? To me, flannel is like my mac and cheese when it comes to clothing. It brings me warmth and comfort. I think about wearing my flannels on cool fall afternoons with a cup of coffee in one hand while watching the autumn leaves fall. Very dramatic but that is essentially how I feel when I think about my flannels. [Read more…]
Now that Fall is upon us, I’ve been gathering all my fall shades in my nail polishes and my lipsticks. I often find myself asking “What color lipstick should I wear?” For those of you who don’t know, I normally put an outfit together based on the lip color that I choose. Since we’re also around the corner from Halloween, I though that I could throw in some Fall/Halloween colors into my outfits without looking like a hot mess.

Lady Danger has a reddish orange tone to it that gives you that sexy look while making it perfect for the Fall/Halloween theme with the orange tint that you get from it. You can easily pair this with neutral colors so that your outfit and accessories are not competing with each other.
I also paired it with a beautiful orange red/orange shade nail polish from e.l.f. cosmetics called Mango Madness. This shade of nail polish is a great alternative from the usual black nail polish (not that black nail polish isn’t sexy) that we use for Halloween but it doesn’t hurt to change it up a little with some vibrancy.

Okay, I’m not talking about fame or anything…if only right?
I’m talking about my new Wet N Wild lipstick in the shade 15 minutes Aflame. It’s definitely more on the girly side with a bright but creamy finish. For the price, this lipstick is one to consider. It’s rich and creamy formula easily glides on. It’s also a build-able lipstick but a little goes a long way. Let’s find out how it swatched… [Read more…]
Snog; to kiss and caress amorously
If you’re looking for lipsticks to give a proper smooch then why not start with butter London’s Lippy Liquid Lipstick. I purchased the shade Snog and it’ a beautiful girly pink lipstick that is bright, super moisturizing and stays on for hours! Who’s up for kisses? [Read more…]
While many of us are still trying to enjoy the last few weeks of summer, I’m getting ready for fall. I’m excited for sweaters, flannels, leggings and of course lipstick. My new addition is Cashmere Silk Finish Lipstick by Wet n Wild.
Buy it here for $5.79.
This lipstick is definitely a more fall color I would say as it has more of a dark brown chocolate-y color that I don’t have in my current collection and that was all the reason I needed so I bought it.
As I applied it, off the bat it was very moisturizing, however I noticed that it had too much of a silky finish almost borderline metallic which wasn’t a problem really so I decided to just do one application of the lipstick because I wanted to keep that silk finish toned down. It did give me a more mature look which honestly I don’t mind because I’m so used to wearing very vibrant and fun lipsticks. Overall, I though it was a great lip shade that I will be using down the road as fall creeps in.
What I love about Wet n Wild’s lipstick is that they’re very affordable and have a very wide shade range where you can always find something that appeals to you. I know that this shade has probably been around for a while because it was kinda hard to find online and since I live in a small town I’m thinking that they just send all the older shades to my little neighborhood store that’s why I always end up with them since I do a lot of makeup impulse buys there.
You can also buy a 3 pack for $7.40 since holiday season is coming up and share it with your family friends.

Have you ever bought lipstick just because you thought it’s a shade that would look good on you? Well that’s what happened with this new lipstick purchase, Under My Spell by Rimmel London. So the truth is that I saw some amazing pictures on Pinterest with women wearing this lipstick and thought oh…so pretty but probably a little darker than what I usually wear but I bought it anyways because…who needs a reason to buy makeup?
Under My Spell is like a deep plum that you can of course layer depending on how dark you want it. I only put a couple layers on just because I wore it in the daytime and it was a beautiful and sunny day out and I didn’t want to cramp anyone’s style with my dark and Gothic lips. I have to say that I liked this lipstick on me but I didn’t love it. I guess it’s because I’m so use to wearing my fuchsias that this one seemed very foreign to me. I’ll definitely have to ease my way into wearing darker plums. It’s also not gonna be one of my everyday wear lipsticks just because it’s so dramatic even with a couple layers.
Get it here on Amazon.
Apart from all that I did find that applying the lipstick was effortless. The lipstick bullet comes in a flat angled shape that made application super easy. It’s also very creamy and pigmented with a high impact color that lasts without drying out your lips.

I finally got my hands, or should I say my lips, on one of Laura Mercier’s lipsticks from her Velour Lovers Collection in the shade Boudoir. This can range from a fuchsia to like a deep berry color depending on how many layers you put on. On my dark skin tone it definitely looked more fuchsia, like most of my other lipsticks…but hey I’ve always got room for more fuchsia.
I have to say that this lipstick is luxuriously creamy and just immaculately glides on your lips. It must be the nourishing mango butter used that also makes it feel more like a lip balm. Can I say lipstick heaven?
It’s also highly pigmented with a long lasting wear and a satin matte finish ( I never thought I could use those two words to describe a lipstick), we all know how matte finishes can be sometimes, like paper, but beauty is pain so I’m not complaining.

I found myself unusually wearing quite a bit of purplish lipstick colors this winter mostly because it was fun and brightened me up on the cold and sad looking winter days. I was amazed at how much I basically wore my bright colors and pretty much ignored everything else. The shades of purple were giving me life! Being intrigued by my winter purplish lips obsession, I googled and found some interesting facts about the color purple.
1.Purple is the color mostly associated with royalty and luxury.No need to tell me twice, I’m liking the sound of this already. All the rich an the richest of the rich would would wear purple to show off their wealth.
2.Purple is a universally flattering color that will compliment any complexion. With that said, there shall be no skin tone left behind. No excuses to not slap a shade of purple on and pucker up.
3. It’s sort of mystical in a sense and it also helps you to be more creative. No wonder I was drawn to them when the skies were dark and gloomy. I was looking for creative ways to brighten my day.
How do you feel about purple? Let me know. Until next time…pucker up xoxo
