Our Forever House!

Hey Luvs!

I’m back! And boy have things been crazy. First I want to say Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. We spent Christmas and New Year’s Eve back home in Florida. It was great to see and spend time with family and friends but it was tough with Zakai. He is in a super clingy phase that didn’t allow for much kid free time AT ALL. But, ah well!

Now we’re back in Georgia and are starting 2017 with some really exciting news. If you follow me on Instagram then you may already know that we have closed on our forever home!

I can’t tell you how excited I am for my family to grow and build memories here.  The house needs a ton of work but we’re going to take it on in phases.  The first phase of renovations has already started and we’re forging ahead.  What an amazing start to the here.  God is so amazing!  If you’re interested in seeing a complete house tour click here.

That’s all for now.

Earth Tones For The Win

Good morning luvs,

What is it about simple neutral colors and earth tones that can make you feel so glam? Never mind red lips and tons of color (as much as I love color). Sometimes all you need are earth tones for the win. Check out this look I did full of beautiful neutrals.

I love how this look pops! The lip and eye combination just radiates. On the lips are two beautiful colors, Take it like A Vamp by Wet n Wild and Molten Bronze by Black Radiance.


The eyes of course are all compliments of my BH cosmetics 120 color palette, specifically the colors to the left of this level of the palette 


The earthy colors are so beautiful. This definitely has to be one of my all time favorite looks.

Well, that’s all for now!

Holiday Glam

Happy Friday!

Hi beauties. Today I’ve got my first holiday look for you guys. It’s super adorable and features a really pretty glow and curls. 

Typically my Twist and curls are pulled in my face but this time I wanted to do something a little different. I went for a part down the middle and loved it! You can check out how I styled my hair here.

For my makeup I went for a nice glow and a pop on the lips. Wet n wilds liquid matte lipstick in the color Take It Like A Vamp is the darker shade and I filled in the middle with Rimmel Light Year from the Show Off collection.



My shadows are all from my BH Cosmetics 120 color second edition palette. And the glow, the glow is compliments of the Maybelline Contour V duo stick which has some great illumination in the highlight side. 


I topped off the glow with my NYX Pro Highlight and Contour Palette. Love the way it all came together A nice balance between glam and super cute. 


Well, that’s it for now!

Bringing in Color for Fall

Hey Luvs!

Happy hump day. As much as I adore fall and darker colors sometimes I miss the brightness of spring and summer. Recently, I found a way to bring them together with one statement piece. A scarf.


As beautiful as this scarf is, I would have never picked it out for myself. My sister gifted it to me last Christmas and I finally brought it out. The orange and brown are quintessential fall, but that pop of teal screams spring and summer. Together they are everything! 

I paired the scarf with super cute orange earrings I think I found at Forever 21,!neutral eyeshadow and a big pop on the lips with one of my favorite NYX Wicked lippies, Scandalous.

This scarf just pulled everything together. I have got to find out where she found this beauty! Well, that’s I for now.

Easy Daytime to Nighttime Hairstyle

Hey luvs!

Don’t you love Styles that are super easy to transition from day to night? Well, tonight I want to share a style like that with you guys. The day time look are some super cute double twisted buns and four Bantu knots.



I love how this style is so adorable but you can still slay wearing it. I think this is great for a casual family day out, or maybe just running errands. Whatever your day time plans are, you can easily transition this style into a more sexy nighttime style by simply unraveling the Bantu knots up front to reveals some gorgeous curls.



Give this easy daytime to nighttime style a try. Well, that’s all for now!

Scarf Season

Hey luvs!

So, technically it’s scarf season, however, here in Georgia we’ve been getting up to between the mid to high eighties every day! That’s entirely to hot to be wearing a scarf, but not too hot to incorporate it as a head wrap. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing. Check out these super cute looks starring traditional scarves tied as headwraps.



These looks are perfect for me on wash days or when I’m in a hurry and have to chose between my makeup or hair. Plus, I love how each of these looks still fit the fall season without making me hot in this crazy 80 something degree weather.  

Each of these scarves are tied exactly the same and of course I’ve got a tutorial to show you just how easy it is. Check it out here.

That’s it for now luvs! Happy Friday!

XOXO
