What I like about dressing up for the summer is breaking out of my neutral-toned wardrobe. During the colder season, I tend to stray away from anything colorful, jewelry included. If I do wear anything in a brighter hue, I feel as I’m forcing myself to dress differently. While during the summer I gravitate towards the season picturesque setting, and it reflects in my day-to-day wear. My favorite colorful item to help match the summer vibes is earrings. I carefully chose three beautiful earrings you need to secure for your summer wardrobe. Continue reading
Fashionista Alert! New York Fashion Week is a few months away. I’m here flipping out as much as you are. Allow me to embrace my favorite trend on the rise: Male makeup gurus. Men are taking over the beauty scene, and I love it. From Manny Guitierrez to Bretman Rock, it is great to see men take on the latest must-haves and spinning it. My ultimate favorite male guru by far is one of the most experienced makeup artists in the beauty scene, Dustin Lujan. His experience of creating beautiful faces began before it started being a huge hit in the Youtube scene. He is being featured in an upcoming fashion and beauty publication entitled La La Mode Rue. The book will be written by author and lifestyle coach, Lori Snyder. CPC, ELI-MP and creative production will be overseen by Chris Victor of Victor Film Productions.

This past weekend I took a long train ride to Brooklyners favorite beach, Coney Island. The hour and seventeen minutes are worth it when you’re visiting the Mermaid Parade for the first time. Looking at the beautiful painted faces and bodies covered with glitter gave me nostalgia. I hid underneath a fellow show watcher’s umbrella, hoping it won’t rain all day. Luckily for me, the sun rays shine shortly after, and I got to join the parade without any more rain drops. As much as I begged for Mr.sunshine to stretch out his rays, I felt my mermaid makeup melting. I placed my hand in my purse and searched for the only product I trust to keep my face fresh. Shortly after, I saw a pink and white aerosol bottle and scream YES what will I do without Evian Spray.
I used to walk out the house with an eyeliner and some foundation and called it a day. Now that I got the hang of using makeup on a daily basis, my makeup routine has more than two steps. I believe my daily makeup routine will look perfect for work or a girls night out. Think about the makeup “no makeup” look with a twist.

Instead of getting tattoos of your favorite painting, you can skip the pain and price with Hot Sox wearable art series…
As an NYC native, attending museums became second nature to me when I was growing up. I remember being one of the few students in elementary school taking long pauses wondering why the artist used a special paint or color. While other kids shrugged off museum lectures, I remember taking as many notes as I could. Art has always been a huge inspiration to me in my writing, the way I dress and in my own personal paintings. Getting to wear a work of art is a spectacular way to pay homage.

Ever had a “Flashback Friday” photo of you and your mom and wondered how you would look rocking that hairstyle today? I know we all secretly have, so I decided to take a blast to the past with various hairstyles I’ve always wanted to try. Enjoy the hairstyles throughout the decades using the Kenra hairspray collection.
In society, we see an “ideal outlook” of what we should look like spread across fashion magazines and in various television shows. At the end of the day, it is normal for some people to take a long look in the mirror and point out their flaws. Next thing you know, we start zoning in on our flaws. Highlighting our flaws end up having a multitude of negative thoughts about our appearance. My friend Diana Morgan invited me to the Being With: Our Bodies event at the Willam Vale hotel in Brooklyn, New York. The event allowed people to help find beauty within their internalized body flaws. To sum up, the workshop wanted attendees to adhere to the concept of self-love completely.
