A Whole New Adventure

TOP: J.O.A via Nordstrom sold out but LOVE this one  | PANTS: Ann Taylor | SANDALS: Steve Madden, flat version HERE | WATCH: Fossil, similar HERE

Happy Monday loves! This Monday I am excited and motivated for the new adventures on the horizon. God has been speaking to me and leading me in directions I've been too afraid to move towards in the past. HE sends signs, people and opportunities to you in more ways then one. If you're someone as stubborn as I am you need a HUGE sign like this telling you to go BOLDLY towards new adventures and I am finally listening!

I will say however, I am posting these pics becuase of the wall. I was not in love with these photos and didn't want to post them but this mural/ message is just all too fitting for this season of my life. Thank you to those who continue to support me in one way or another, I appreciate you and value you immensely!

 I want to hear below how  you are moving towards your goals and embracing new Adventures boldly.

Beauty: Favorite Red Lipsticks for WOC

Happy Monday Loves! I'm super excited to start this week off with this post about my fav red lipsticks. I am no stranger to rocking an old NASTY red lip! I jump at the chance to do so but I understand how difficult it can be for ladies of color to find the RIGHT shade. Not all red shades are created equally for us brown beauties. I have compiled a list of my favs that I'm sure to compliment our skin tone. Here are a few tips I have for picking the right shade.

1. Know your undertones. Do you have cool or warm undertones, are you more yellow tint or red? In MAC foundation are you an NC or NW? Knowing the answer to those questions will help you immensely on your search. Certain reds work with certain undertones.

2. Start cheap. I am a firm believer in practicing with lower end brands before you splurge on the expensive stuff. I don't know about you but I feel a LOT better about wasting 6 bucks over 32 bucks! Once you know what color works for you in lower end brands there is ALWAYS a higher end dupe.

3. Experiment with Finishes. This is totally preference but you might be surprised at how different a matte red looks on you rather than a glossy red. I'm a fan of both however I live for a non-drying matte lip.

4. HAVE FUN. I will say this until the cows come home, it's just makeup....have fun with it!! Seriously. Don't be scared to rock a red lip. No it's not reserved just for date night. I refuse to be put in a box like that. Have fun with your red lip and be fearless dolls!

What are some of your favorite red lippies? I want to hear down below, I'm always down to try some new shades!

The Pom Pom Tassel Sandal

Colorful. A word I would use to describe this look and my mood lately. That and tired but mostly colorful, happy and excited and when I wear these shoes my mood gets even better! These shoes make me giddy ya'll. The colorful bright pom poms make it easy to see why this was one of this summer hottest trends. When I spotted these beauties on I knew I had to have them. Paired with anything white and festive and they truly pop.

I mentioned in THIS post that I'm only adding items to my wardrobe that make me happy and these do exactly that. I have to get just a few more wears out of these beauties before I trade them in for booties and snow shoes :-(

What are some of your favorite pieces you're going to be sad to put away this summer?

{Almost} Fall

Fall is almost here. I seriously can't believe it, I feel like it was just January now it's almost September. Anyone else feel like time is flying by at a scary rate??

In this look I'm embracing the fall color palette and mixing Navy and Olive. I love this color combo, it's so rich and neutral. Throw on a burgundy lip and this look would be perfectly Fall appropriate. I paired it with a neutral super high wedge sandal and tribal necklace to add a bit of interest. Fall is going to be fun this year, I'm excited for the Fall trends and layering goodness. Not to mention I can NOT wait to decorate my home for fall and cook all kinds of pumkin approriate goodness!

What are some things you dolls are looking forward to this fall? Is it the trends, fashion, weather or food??? I'll take all of those things please and thank you!!
