Upgrades....

Ya’ll seen me rock the bomber time again, and I do love the classic look, I recently witnessed the power of throwing on a duster by accident. In an attempt to wear a spaghetti dress to a friend’s shower while combating the rain, I threw on this pink version of the jacket before heading to the party. What started out as just a Hail Mary turned out to be an amazing outfit, I felt amazing!  

I actually felt as though I was wearing my own superhero cape guys! 

Duster:  Avec Les Filles  (got the duster a while ago, it’s not online but there’s an alternative)  Dress:  Forever 21   Shoes:  Melissa Shoes

Got the hair did as well, it’s been bugging me how to elevate my look for a while and the folks over at Napp Star hooked it up with a drink, updated dye job, and this unique side braid.  

While it didn’t feel like spring, I wanted to have a natural glow, Glam by V didn’t disappoint. I’m usually very “safe” when it comes to hair and make up it was rad to let the legit professionals play around with my look. It’s another way for me to learn how to let go and stop overthinking and do it!  :)

Planning more outfit posts for the spring, well given Mother Nature it will probably go straight to summer ha ha! It’s great to be blogging again!

Anyone else did a major update to their look recently? Do tell!

Wild, wild, wild thoughts.....

Usually when it comes to my makeup, I’m pretty simple. Covering up my dark circles, thickening my lashes, and adding a sun-kissed glow are the only steps in creating my everyday look. Don’t get me wrong—I love playing around and trying out new products. But let’s face it (literally): I’m not an expert when it comes to applying makeup lol! I’m WAS more of the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” kind of gal when it comes to make up.

Rewind to last month…., I decided to try something new and contacted Vanessa Cruz who is THE make-up expert. I wanted to break out of my usual make up routine :)

For my look, I pulled inspiration leaning more towards the vamp punk look I have been seeing lately...  I love it, it’s romantic, dark and brooding and elicits intrigue.

I’m totally convinced that I was an early 80s punk head in my past life time! I love the IDGAF vibe that filled the air during that time: Grace Jones, The Clash, Joan Jett, Blondie, The Stooges. The OG’s, the original hustlers, they started the whole DIY mentally that still exist today! What a time to live amongst that creativity :)

Voila! This was a fun make up session, Vanessa and I were listening to the new album “Grateful” by DJ Khaled in the midst of it, with “Wild Thoughts” on repeat!

Vanessa used the following products, it was a mix of high and low end product!

Brows:  NYX Cosmetics: Micro Brow Pencil in "Brunette"

I was happy to get out of my comfort zone and give a look I wanted to try a shot J. Vanessa thanks again for the encouragement.

If you guys are in NYC and would like to book Vanessa follow her on IG at @glammbyv
