Body Figure (FOR CURVY GIRLS ONLY)

26 Mar

One of the most important things in styling yourself is knowing your body type. I came across and excellent resource on Pinterest from IGIGI for the curvacious beauties that gives you a good detailed description on your body type and what styles complement it so I thought I would share with all of you beauties

Mrs. Carter in H&M

22 Mar

Beyonce’ is PAIRING UP WITH H&M! She has partnered with the brand and will be featured in print and television ads wearing H&M 2013 summer collection. It also has been said that she has provided input on some of the pieces featured in the collection. Do it Beyonce’! This is a smart move for H&M since they are working on expanding their U.S. market…I look forward to seeing Mrs. Carter bring H&M some life!

New *Frame* of Mind!!

20 Mar

(Whispers) So I have an obsession (other than The Walking Dead ). It’s frames, square frames, cat eyes, aviators, circle frames, retro’s I love them all. Thankfully I don’t need to where glasses to see or drive so I simply use them for style purposes. I’m not balling (Well not yet, because Romans 4:17 (KJV) tells us to “calleth those things which be not as though they were”) So I’m not at that stage of my life where I can go out and purchase a pair of Tom Ford’s or Versace’s without taking out a loan and selling my momma’s tv. With that being said I utilized God’s gift of online wholesale shopping sites like Amazon and Ebay to find these frames. I’ve never paid more than $20 (that’s including shipping and handling) for any pair of my frames. Both Amazon and Ebay accounts are both free to join so you can browse and or create an account any time you like. If you’re constantly on the run just go ahead and download Amazon/ Ebay’s free apps onto your phone and or tablet to save time.

The biggest question I receive from people compliment my glasses is “What do you search in order to get your frames?” Honestly, trial and error, the first time“circle retro frames” and began to flip through and the rest is history. Now Amazon an Ebay like most websites will automatically track your searched items and provide you with more suggestions. Let’s say you want some black square frames go to the search box and input “retro square frames black.” To branch out and find a more daring look type in “cat eye frame pink” and tell me what you see. A keyword to use when you begin searching for frames are “retro” and “vintage” because a lot these frames are from the 70’s, 80’s etc. so using these keywords will help hook you onto more options.
A word to the wise, always check to see where the frames are being shipped from: U.S or outside of the U.S. I’ve have noticed that some of cheaper frames are sometimes shipped from China, Japan etc. Listen honeyface, if you’re willing to wait a few weeks in order to save a couple duckets then by all means jump on it. Frames are a great way to show your personality without opening your mouth and WOW them your new frame of mind.

IT’S WEDNESDAY SUGGAH!!

Picture7  Omjeezzz!  My first blog post feature (hits tootsie roll and high 5’s Jesus)  *Ahemmm* Now first I want to thank my CEO/BFF Ms. Ashley Bondon for allowing me to be a part of this company as well as bestowing me with the honor of being her Creative Director (or as I nicknamed it the “C-Dizzle”). 

        Each week I’ll be sharing things on my radar dealing with makeup, fashion, accessories, nails, hair, and anything with glitter or sequins on it (lol).  Now I’ve been getting acrylic nails since my sophomore year of high school so I’m a nail art fiend.  Around Christmas I was ready to explore the newest trend of 3D nail art/ designs and I was referred by a friend to Salon Couture.  It’s located on 7625 Marlboro Pike, Forestville Md 20747 (Main Shop # 301-735-7222)

http://saloncouturedc.com/index.html# .  Salon Couture is a multiple award-winning hair salon, barber and nail salon (YES ALL IN ONE).   I was even more elated to see African-American nail tech’s because in all the nail shops I’ve visited in the DMV area this was my first time every seeing this.   The receptionist on duty at the time Ms. Liz is such a sweetie pie, she forwarded me over the phone to Charmisa.

I made an appointment with Ms. Charmisa who is now my official Nail Angel!  She was fast, professional, attentive and very eager to make sure that I happy with my nails/ nail art.  She took my little ideas and turned them into this…

The pictures speak for themselves, but 2 months later I still had 80% of my sequins and my fill in area (the area between your nail bed and the actual acrylic was less than an inch.  I was very impressed not to mention none of my nails broke, cracked because of the style the acrylic was set they’re very strong and resilient.  I have the “Stilleto Nail” with a hump in the middle; if you look at the nail head on it looks almost like a mountain peak.  Now if you’re a “Plain Baby Jane” and this is too much for you or not feasible for your lifestyle Charmisa also does normal manicure and or acrylic layovers just like any nail tech

 If your cuticle are looking like you’ve been doing construction…and you work an office GO VISIT SALON COUTURE ASAP!

DAY DREAMING AND I’M THINKING OF YOU….

8 Mar

IMG950485I often run across people who feel like that dreams are just that…a dream. 4 the Life of ME I can’t understand why people are so afraid to go after what they want. Every idea started off as a dream right? I have always been a big DAY DREAMER. Give me a quiet moment and I can create a whole new world in my mind. Well Sunday I got the opportunity to be up close to another one of my dreams which is to ride in a helicopter one day…(why not?) OWN a helicopter one day. I was pulling up in the parking lot at my church and there it was our minsitry (Spirit of Faith Christian Center) helicopter just chillen. Soooo I just had to TAKE A PICTURE!! I was waaaaayy to excited, like I was about to ride. So before anyone else pulled up or told us to get away from it I told my girls to come on and take these pictures (I also was in love with my outfit this day)as I pretended in my mind that this Helicopter was there for me and I was about to take off to New York and meet up with some important people about the Fall designs for my clothing store 🙂 My Pastor is always talking about  planting seeds. I am always planting seeds in my spirit for my next level of living. I walk in to stores where I know at the moment I can’t afford anything but I’m planting a seed. I’m motivating my self to get to my next place in life. Don’t let your dream just be a dream go after yours. Who told you that you couldn’t do? You talk yourself out an idea before you even give yourself a chance to even TRY! 

It’s not what you think you are that’s  holding you back it’s what you think you are not that’s holding you back“~Pastor Dewayne

Later Loves!
