Gone with the Wind Fabulous



The FIT:
Dress: BCBG (old, similar HERE) | Shoes: JustFab | Jacket: Zara, Similar | Hat: Forever 21, Similar


So what is a girl to do when she stumbles upon the perfect old train station in her neighborhood.....throw on a full length gown, 5 inch pumps and go take pictures DUH!! Pray not to get hit by the train and be Gone With the Wind Fabulous!! 

Pulled out this oldie but goodie from the archives paired with a leather jacket, floppy hat and my new Just Fab heels. I feel this look is super girly, yet edgy with a touch of boho. I could totally rock this look for a Coachella event!

P.S. How are you dolls enjoying the new blog design? Still working out some kinks but I wanted to switch it up a bit....it was time! Let me know what you think down below!

XOXO

Budget Beauty Boot Camp: Spring Spa Night In

Hey Dolls and Happy Spring!!

Everyone loves a good spa moment but it can put a dent in our pockets for sure. I'm all about saving a coin or two without sacrificing fabulosity. In this post I’m going to show you how to get the spa experience at home for less than $25 bucks using products from your local Family Dollar! Super convenient and affordable and will leave you feeling refreshed, renewed and ready for Spring!

Start off by thawing off that Winter chill in a nice warm bath. I love to use this lavender epsom bath salt solution in my water to calm aching muscles or just to give a relaxing fragrance. 
To really create the mood and set the zen-like tone I like to light this bath set and turn the lights down low to relax. I found this set at my local family dollar for just 5 bucks. This Mulberry scented set comes complete with an oil burner, reed diffusers and incents...OH MY! How absolutely perfect for my spa retreat at home.

To get that old thang back….you know.... smooth, vibrant, healthy skin once again; Winter can leave your skin a bit parched. I reach for my homemade body scrub, great for body and lips. I found all these ingredients at Family Dollar and simply mixed them together to get the consistency I liked. 
I like to package them in these little clear containers and store them in the fridge and use it about once a week.

This container held about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of honey, and about 2 teaspoons of Vitamin E until you have a fully coated mixture. Whip up this easy and affordable DIY body scrub and you can thank me later for your perfectly polished and glowing skin!

Nothing like a fresh coat of polish to change up your look, I’m loving this gel polish new from LA Colors in this minty spring shade. Easy to apply brush, long lasting color with a variety of shades to choose from and did I mention they’re only 2 bucks a piece?! 
Change the colors as often as you like, I like to use these handy remover wipes, works great for only a dollar and smells like peaches.

Finally, I like to finish up my spa night with layers of this Cocoa Butter Vaseline on my feet with a pair of cozy socks. After soaking in my Epsom salt bath and scrubbing the dead skin away with my sugar scrub this Vaseline leaves my feet ‘pedicure’ soft the next morning.  

So there you go, a fabulous night IN for less than $25 bucks! You can't beat that and you surely deserve it which is why I'm partnering with Family Dollar and giving away 2 $25 dollar gift cards! So 2 lucky Diamond Dolls will win a $25 gift to go and recreate your own spa night IN with Family Dollar. Simply SHARE this post and follow Naja Diamond and Family Dollar on Facebook and Instagram!

Thank you so much to Family Dollar for partnering with this post, as always all opinions are my own.

Makeup: Green Smokey Eye feat. Milani Foiled Eyeshadows

Hey dolls, coming to you today with a makeup review! I have been wanting to do more makeup reviews for you dolls so today will be a mini review/tutorial. I buy makeup constantly so why not share my thoughts with you guys here. 
PURCHASE HERE:


Recently I picked up the Milani foiled eye shadow palettes. I picked up all 4 because well, I have a problem and NEEDED them all. I also picked up the Milani matte lipsticks. Matte lipsticks are all the rage in the beauty world and just about every line high end and low are coming out with their own matte options. 


Foiled Eyeshadows: These palettes feature four colors ranging from a lighter highlight color to a darker color good for smoking out a look. The formula of these eye shadows are really creamy, soft and slightly oily. They are made to give you that glossy look for your eyes. They run about $10 each at your local CVS. I will say I fell in love initially with the packaging and colors of the shadows (I mean who doesn't love glitter) however I was a pretty disappointed in the formula. They are a bit hard to work with and can be patchy. I recommend using your fingers to apply because frankly, the applicator SUCKS and my synthetic brushes just kind of moved the product around and applied them gritty. 

Matte Lipsticks: Now these lipsticks are the beez knees!! I love them! Not only are they very pigmented, they are also creamy yet matte...but not drying. If you are a fan of matte (no shine) lipsticks, for example Ruby Woo from Mac, you know they can be very drying to your lips and darn near impossible to touch up without removing and reapplying the color. These lippies do not do that. They’re matte yet moisturizing and easy to remove and reapply. They run about 5.49 at my local drugstores and CVS always has them on sale for buy one get one 50% off. At least once a month I find them on sale. They have about 10 shades ranging from Nude to bold Red. I definitely recommend trying a few if you can get your hands on them loves.

So that’s all for this post. Please let me know if you enjoy these mini reviews and be sure to check out my YouTube channel for a full tutorial on how to recreate this gorgeous green smokey eye and go ahead and SUBSCRIBE to my channel dolls, I would certainly appreciate it!

All Black Everything + Big Red is back!!


The FIT:
Turtleneck: GAP | Skirt: Charlotte Rouse, similar | Jacket: Zara, similar HERE | Booties: Rebecca Minkoff, differnt but cute pair HERE | Hat: Target | Necklace: Baublebar

Shop the Look:

I love this hair. I'll say it again, I love my red hair. If you remember I debuted this look in this post HERE and rocked her for a bit before retiring her to the back of my closet. I'm pretty conservative when it comes to my look and bold changes. Since following my blog you dolls have pretty much seen me rock one look. Long, black/brown extensions. I can count on one hand how many times I've rocked my natural hair and have dabbled in the ombre look from time to time. But never anything as bold as Red. I'm glad I did it and I must say it is now a fav.

Today I'm rocking an all black look  with an edgy biker vibe. This bauble bar necklace is so gorge and love how this look puts in on display. It was actually warm enough to put the heavy winter coat away and rock only a leather jacket, paired with a turtleneck of course. Black skirt, black tights, black beanie and leopard bag complete this look. Simple, edgy and chic and the best part is you probably have all these pieces in your wardrobe now.

What are some ways you dolls are changing up your look this Spring?
