One of the best things about summer is the dresses. From beautiful ball gowns to casual maxi dresses, there are so many designs and styles to choose from. When it comes to spring and summer, being able to wear a dress without fear of freezing to death is amazing. Of course, you can wear dresses in the winter, but the chances that you’ll get cold are high.
The fantastic thing about the warmer months is that whatever event or occasion you’re attending, there’s a way to style a day dress for it. Obviously, there are lots of fancier dress designs to choose from. But more often than not, day dresses end up looking the most beautiful for the majority of occasions. Be it a plain pastel-hued design or a cute floral print piece, there are lots of beautiful dress designs to choose from. (more…)
I’m always on the look out for easy ways to add moisture to my skin, so much so that I use to apply body oil in the shower before coming out and towel drying. I loved that in sealed in moisture but hated how messy it made my towels and tub. Fast forward a few years, I heard about the new Dove Dry Oil Collection and I jumped at the opportunity to partner with Dove to try it out. I used argan oil on my hair for years and knew the benefits of this oil so I wash excited to try it in my skincare.The Dove Dry Oil Collection features their Dove Dry Oil Beauty Bar and Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash. Because 9 in 10 women are concerned about having dry skin, Dove Dry Oil Moisture Body Wash goes beyond basic moisturizing to help women nourish and protect their dry skin.
Product Description: The Dove Dry Oil collection helps nourish and protect skin from dryness in the shower by effectively cleansing without leaving skin feeling dry and features a nourishing formula infused with Moroccan Argan oil beads to gently cleanse while helping to replenish nutrients to the skin.

With men’s fashion week recently coming to a close, it’s clear that more and more people are starting to take an interest in men’s fashion. In particular, over the last year or two, there have also been a lot of interesting trends in footwear for men. Most guys can get away with some pretty basic boots or dress shoes for average, everyday looks. But by embracing some of these styles, a man can really make a statement with what he puts on his feet. Whether you’re a guy or just a girl interested in men’s fashion (let’s be honest, we all have a dad or boyfriend that could use some help) these tips will definitely be good to know.
1. Embrace The Chelsea Boot For Everyday Wear
There probably hasn’t been a more significant or more widespread trend in men’s footwear in the past year than the emergence of the Chelsea boot (more…)
I’ve been wanting to try out the sleeveless coat/ long vest trend for months and finally got the opportunity to do so! Although it’s almost January, the weather this winter has been so mild, I’ve had the chance to wear mine a few times already and I plan to keep wearing this trend into the spring.
The key to wearing this trend in my opinion is to pair it with something a little more streamline (so no big flared skirts or dresses). Personally I would stick to wearing either jeans or leggings with this trend as that seems to look the best!
I think the exact one I got is sold out now but here are a few other ones that are equally as cute (and affordable) from Boohoo.com:
Boutique Ava Sleeveless Mac Trench Coat • $37
Lara Sleeveless Duster Coat • $16
Camila Sleeveless Fluid Trench • $16
Megan Sleeveless Camel Coat • $42
Amy Waterfall Sleeveless Coat • $26
Charlie Sleeveless Waterfall Duster Coat • $18
Lara Waterfall Sleeveless Coat • $28
Olivia Waterfall Belted Sleeveless Coat • $22
Joanna Ponte Sleeveless Jacket • $22

Finding a foundation that matches your skin perfectly is hard for most people, especially women of color. I’m constantly looking for a foundation that is deep enough, doesn’t have red undertones (because most darker shades do for some reason), and lastly won’t leave behind a weird grayish-or ashy undertone. A few months back I did a photoshoot at Sephora and got to get my face glammed with all Smashbox cosmetics. While there was a few products I really liked, the foundation was definitely my favorite by far. I ended up purchasing it in shade 9 and I have been using it for a few months now.
Product Description: Like most foundations, this product comes in a small glass foundation tube with a pump applicator that makes it super easy to use. It’s a light- medium coverage foundation.
Price: $42 (available at Sephora and Ulta)
Application: I applied it as I do most of my foundations, using my short round kabuki brush all over my face over my face primer.

The holidays are here and when it comes to beauty, that means special limited edition items! I’m already a fan of several Tarte products so when I recently got the opportunity to try their holidaze limited edition products I jumped at the chance.
With Christmas fast approaching, it’s only a matter of time before the family and work holiday parties begin. They are often one of the social events of the year, where we get to let our hair down and spend time with our nearest and dearest. So obviously we all want to look our best. The key is to start planning your look early to fully prepare yourself for such an important occasion. You’ve probably already sorted out your outfit, but have you thought about your holiday hair and makeup? Your everyday look just won’t do and this is the ideal opportunity for you to experiment with bold makeup styles and colors. Here is a number of party hair and beauty ideas to make you the belle of the ball at your holiday party this year.
