Fall Fashion Inspiration 2016

   Here in Florida it finally, FINALLY feels like fall... but only for the early part of the day and at night. I'm cool with that thou. I'll take what I can get until the temperature really starts to drop. One of the best parts of living in Florida is the weather. It never gets extremely cold or hot.

   Since we're currently at that "it's fall but only for part of the day" phase it can be kinda hard to decide what to wear. For instance it was warm the other day so I got this really cute t-shirt dress while I was at the mall. The next day I woke up to 55 degrees!! I still want to be able to rock my new t-shirt dress so I figured out how and wanted to share some inspiration with you!

   Basically if you have a really cute dress throw on some adorable tights, boots and a jacket.  If it's really cold in the mornings or at night grab a scarf too! This works out really well because you're layered and as the day goes on and it gets a little warmer just start taking off your layers.

Cool fall days

Half Skull Half Glam Halloween Makeup Tutorial (video)

   I'm really in the Halloween spirit this year (pun intended). I honestly don't do anything for Halloween but I love dressing up and experimenting with makeup looks that would other wise be questioned other times of the year. However, I'm currently having so much fun expect to see random makeup tutorials through out the year! Like I don't know maybe a sugar skull in May, or a Bride of Frankenstein in February! Anyway, I did this half skull half glam makeup look to kick things off this year and I love how it came out. I've never done a skull on myself before and now I'm obsessed!

Watch the video below and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more Halloween tutorials as well as more wearable makeup looks!

Mermaid Makeup Tutorial for Halloween

I love to dress up and love doing my makeup even more. I'm working on some really fun looks for Halloween this year. My main focus is on the makeup. Let's face it, costumes can be super expensive so the looks I've come up with won't cost a lot to achieve. While I'm working on new Halloween tutorials for YouTube I wanted to share this costume with you from last year. It's a really fun glam mermaid makeup tutorial! I made the wig and seashell bra myself so I'm a bit proud of the whole look. Which is why  I'm sharing it again.

Enjoy and keep an eye out for my new video on Saturday!

Do What You Love #MondayMotivation

   For years I’ve been head over heels in love. In love with fashion and makeup. I’ve often done makeovers on my friends and family Clueless style because it was fun. It’s always been fun. I went to school for cosmetology where I learned everything beauty related not specializing in one thing. Years later I went to school for fashion. I say all of that to say… I know what I’m doing. I just didn’t exactly know the why. In the beginning I just felt like it was a great industry to get into and hey the money isn’t half bad. I ended up going to work in other industries and doing makeup on the side while still developing my clothing line.  
   After a while of working thankless jobs in industries that did not interest me at all I went back to what I knew best. Makeup. After some soul searching I figured out the why in why I want to be in the beauty industry. It’s the same reason I became a designer. I want to help women look and feel their best. I want to help them build their confidence. I want them to feel pampered even if only for a little while. In the past week at work I’ve done makeup for teenage girls going to homecoming, a soon to be bride for her engagement photoshoot, a pregnant mother on her way to her baby shower and many more women that just want to look and feel good about themselves. One of my favorite moments of the week was an older woman that came in and just wanted a new look but still wanted to look like herself. Once I was done with her she looked in the mirror, touched her face and said “I look beautiful”.  Really I guess what I’m saying is this… We all have a gift we can be sharing with the world. If we share it maybe, just maybe the world could be a better place.

My Summer Bucket List (that didn't happen) 2016

   This was supposed to be a completely different kind of post. This was meant to be a summer bucket list 2016 but instead I’m giving you my summer bucket list that didn’t happen 2016 and I’ll tell you why. Summer started and we decided to move. Finding a house in Florida is not that easy (in my opinion). So it took a lot of my time. So my days were mostly spent house hunting, packing, moving, unpacking, creating content for YouTube and basically running around like a mad woman. So as the weeks have gone by my list was getting ignored. While I know summer is not officially over I have given up on the summer part of this list and will just find time to do each when I can get to them. So here it is my summer bucket list that didn’t happen 2016.

Learn Italian – This is something I’ve been working on since last summer. I pick it up from time to time and test myself with certain phone apps. I was mainly hoping to dedicate time each day to lessons and see how far I could get by the end of summer. At this point I mainly know greetings and how to order at a restaurant.

Go to Weeki Wachee Springs – We do the beach every summer but due to it being hurricane season we only go a few times. When I discovered Weeki Wachee Springs I knew we had to go! It’s a state park here in Florida about 45 mins from Tampa. They’re known mostly for their mermaid shows! Who doesn't love mermaids?!

Design something – I haven’t really taken much time to sit down and design any new clothes for my line. I can do this any time but I haven’t been struck by inspiration in a long time. I think I just need to sit still and find it. That will be a blog post for a different day.

Work on my web sites – Can you say time consuming?!?!? I don’t plan on doing a full over haul but some changes here and there will be nice.

Get a bright mani pedi -  Because what’s summer without bright nails on your fingers and toes!

Lay on the beach – During the whole time we were in the process of moving the beach was all I could think about. Now that we’re all settled in there hasn’t been a day without rain yet.

Yoga – This is still one of my big things to do really soon. I want to learn yoga so bad. It does amazing things for the mind, body and spirit and I need all of that right about now.

Learn to braid my own hair – I don’t just mean single braids. I can do those like a pro. I want to learn to French braid my own hair. It is so much easier on other people but the struggle is real when it comes to doing it on me.

Hula hooping – So I came across this lady on YouTube and she is freaking amazing! She teaches how to work out with a hula hoop and she does and awesome freestyle dance to Justin Beiber’s love yourself. Working out gets really boring so I figured this might be a fun work out to do once or twice a week when I get tired of everything else.

   So that’s pretty much it for my summer bucket list that didn’t happen 2016. I know it wasn’t super exciting but they were mainly personal goals and things I enjoy. Summer wasn’t all bad though we have a beautiful new home, I got to binge watch season 2 of Jane the Virgin, I went to see Bad Moms with a HUGE group of moms and catch up on some reading.

How was your summer? Tell me down in the comments what you did and make me super jealous.

Review: Yoderm, see a dermatologist from home

   I received this service for free in exchange for my honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

   Healthy skin is something that is very important to a lot of people. Myself included. Going to a Dermatologist may not be an option for a lot of reasons. They can be pretty expensive, not everyone has insurance and not all insurance companies cover a trip to the Dermatologist. So what’s a girl to do?! About a month ago I was contacted by the awesome people at Yoderm to check out their site. I was a little skeptical but I want to make sure that I am giving you all the information you deserve so I decided to give them a try.

   Yoderm is super easy and you get help for your acne in hardly any time at all. The best part? You don’t even have to leave your house!

   Your first step is to pay the $59 fee which is pretty reasonable since going to an actual office can cost almost double! Next a dermatologist is selected for you or you can choose your own. Complete your registration and fill out your profile so your new doctor can get to know more about you. You’ll be asked questions about your skin type, weight, status of your health and finish up by entering in your insurance information (if you have any). Honestly, it’s a lot less time consuming then I thought it would be. Ok, now your dermatologist has to see you right?

   So you’ll upload 3 photos of yourself, your right and left profile and face forward. After you upload your photos you’ll choose your local pharmacy and wait up to 24 hours for a response from your doctor.

   I kid you not it literally took exactly 24 hours for me to hear back from Dr. Kober. She gave me a personalized treatment plan and sent 2 prescriptions to my local pharmacy. Along with the prescriptions she also gave me an over the counter treatment plan.

   I found the whole process fun and easy. It can take a long time to get in to see a Dermatologist and it can cost a lot of money. Yoderm is an affordable convenient way to get the treatment you need to have clear skin. I highly recommend Yoderm if you are looking for an easy and discreet way to treat your acne. We all deserve to have skin we can be comfortable in.

Full face highlight challenge (Video)

I love to bring you ladies something new. I do makeup videos to inspire and to teach you. Sometimes I like to be a little silly. When I saw the Full Face Highlighter challenge I had to do it! Highlighting is just one of those things I have to do when I'm doing my makeup. I'm not going to not highlight! So of course this challenge was perfect for me. The original video is by a girl named Mariya but the challenge was started by Nikkie Tutorials and Jeffree Star. Remember this is all in good fun and not meant to be taken seriously.

Sit back, enjoy and try not to let all the glow hurt your eyes.
