Blazer Love

I have been obsessed with blazers lately. However, those two for to be my absolute favorites. They combine both my love for blazers and bright neon colors. I love everything about them: the color, the shoulder pads, the cut, and the hardware. I cannot wait to pair them with jeggings, cute shoes/ boots, a simple T shirt, and one of my jewelry pieces.

Lips is Details

So here is a detailed post about those lip colors from the previous post.

Those three colors are:

Divine Divine 330 by Cover Girl

Gumdrop 060 by Revlon Color burst Lip Butter

Unending Kiss 112 by L’Oreal Infallible

These products are amazing. First of all, my absolute favorite is Divine Divine. Beside the gorgeous purplish pink color, it has a great staying power. By great, I mean 24 hours, I wake up sometimes in the morning and I can still see it on lips even after washing it off! I’ve always had that dilemma of my lips eating the lipstick. I’ve always struggled trying to find a lip product that would stay on my lips for at least an hour. Everything melts off or gets absorbed within a few minutes of applying it. Well, not this one! This lip product is absolutely AhMazing!

I currently own 3 colors from that line of Cover Girl. This weekend I am planning on visiting a drug store and purchasing a few more colors. I am not sure if it is advertised as a long lasting lip product, but it sure does work 100 times better than any other product that claims it has a long lasting power.

Now, the Revlon lip butter. Those are amazing as well. They do not have the same staying power as the Cover Girl product, and even though they are lip butters, they still stay on for quite a while and definitely longer than other brands I’ve tried. Not to mention, the color is super cute. Its almost as if its an icy pink color; however, it doesn’t wash you out. I have an olive skin tone and it looks gorgeous on!

Last but not least, the L’Oreal Unending Kiss. This is such a gorgeous nude color. It is definitely warm nude that doesn’t wash you out. Its staying power is not bad, however, it is a bit drying on my lips. Nonetheless, I love the color!

I hope you enjoyed my little review. I highly suggest checking out the Cover Girl line. It is fabulous!

Cruise Outfit

In about a month from now, I will be on a cruise to the Bahamas!

This would be our second cruise trip (Our = the Hubby and I). Our first cruise was last year in May for our Honey Moon. It was such a wonderful experience. It was a treat after a whole year of stressful and frustrating at time wedding planning. Cruising is wonderful as you get to see new ports and cities stress free. You do not need to plan or worry about a place to stay, a place to eat, or a spot to visit. Everything is planned and done for you, all you have to do is pick what appeals to you, your taste, and your interests.

Though, one thing you have to plan is your outfits. I am one of those people who always over-packs! Well, I believe over packing is better than under-packing, especially when you are “stuck” on a ship. Therefore, this is the time where I start thinking of the outfits I will be taking with me. There will be a mixture of formal nights, and other casual nights. Therefore, I have to plan accordingly. This will be my first outfit I am thinking of taking.I will be posting the different outfits I am taking on the cruise as I plan them.

Enjoy this for now. Click on the image to find more about each piece.

Valentine’s Pink

Usually we associate red color with Valentine’s day. Well, not this year!

This year has been the year for bright neon colors, and the Hot Pink color has definitely proven to be the color of choice for many clothing articles and accessories out there. I am not a pink girl (shocking!), but I am definitely a Hot Pink fan. It makes everything look sophisticated, glamorous, pretty, yet edgy!

Hot Pink is definitely one of my favorite colors. It is such a beautiful color and it brings glow to my skin. It definitely suits my olive skin tone. If you are not brave enough to rock a Hot Pink outfit, well, this Valentine’s day should be your excuse! Everything out there is in that Hot Neon Pink color, go grab a piece and rock out wearing it on February the 14th.

Happy Hot Pink Day!

Cuff Love

My favorite piece of jewelry has always been the bracelet. I love stacking a bunch of bracelets with different dimensions and characteristic to create a unique look. Bracelets are definitely the arm candy!

What better candy than those neon vibrant colored cuffs. How about those studded cuffs with bold geometric shapes?

Those are a few of the many bracelets I am getting my inspirations from.

Neon Love

I just came across this website that has “inspired” designer items. I could care less if the items are inspired by a designer or not, what caught my eyes were those vibrant neon colored accessories.

I love the idea of having a neutral or monotone outfit and then bring it to life with a pop of color through your accessories.
