Hello…Hello…Hello!!! A couple of weeks ago I did a Fall Fashion 2017 Look Book on my YouTube channel. I put 4 looks together, focusing on color…fabrication…and weather. Let’s face it, some days it will be unseasonably warm and the next ridiculously cold. So, I think that’s how we need to approach this season.

Every year you may see subtle changes with fashion from season to season but a few key things remain the same, one being color. For Fall you want to be inspired by nature, especially in the early parts of the season. Look at the leaves from the trees and start there. You have colors like burnt orange, dark red, brown…and the grass gets a little darker green.

Next is texture! Fabrication gets heavier, you have heavier denim, suede, corduroy, and layering is key!

When it comes to Fall Fashion, stick to these trends, they will never change! That way you won’t have to break the bank buying every year. Out of the 4 looks I posted 3 things are new, the green corduroy jacket, the black shoes with the studs and the coat I’m holding in the last look…and all 3 were thrifted! I spent less than 20 dollars for all three.

Before I go, I want to share key items you need in your wardrobe for Fall/Winter:

Cable Knit and Infinity scarves

A trench coat

A leather jacket

Knee boots (black & brown)

Booties

Faux leather pants

Corduroys

Tights

Ok, let’s just start there…I don’t want to overwhelm you. I hope that I have inspired you with my Fall fashion, and if you have anything to add please leave me a comment,  I would love to hear from you 💋

Fall Fashion 2017

Aside
beauty, nails

Hey dolls! Gents, welcome 😙…so here it is 2017 and I have had the hardest time maintaining length to my nails for 3 years or so now. My most prized nail moment was 2014 when my nails looked like this…

I have tried everything I could think of, doing all the same things, and nothing. Fast forward to a month ago when I took the tips and acrylic off that I had on for over a month…

You can’t see it but my nail beds look horrible, still do! The only thing I had going for me was that my nails were so hard despite having the acrylic on and that’s because once my nails started growing, I applied nail strengthener under my nail. I vowed from that moment on I would get back focused on the health and growth of my nails because I want my 2014 nails back.

I know some may think they are just nails, it’s not that serious but I beg to differ. Your nails say a lot about your overall health. Issues with your heart, liver, or lungs can reflect through your nails. Anemia, psoriasis, hepatitis, diabetes, you name it, your nails can be the first sign to these diseases. Also, presentation is everything. As an entrepreneur in the beauty field, before I put my best foot forward, I want to put my best hands forward.

So, how do I care for my nails? Every two weeks I do a detailed manicure, every week I do an almond oil nail soak, I keep nail hardner on and under my nails, I give me nails and day to breath, I eat very healthy, and drink water all day long.  Here are the products I’m using…

POLISH REMOVERS

The Up & Up Target brand is the one I’ve been using for years…I usually have the one pictured which is the strengthening one and I have the green one, but I tried out the soak off one, I do not like it…its horrible for natural nails, very drying.  The green one from the Up & Up brand I use first to remove my polish because it has more acetone than the one pictured, and I use the one pictured last because it is the strenthening one.

UTENSS

I always have 2 nail boards (one for work, one for home), one is less abrasive, the other you can really get a great shape with. If your nails are weak, stay away from the black boards they are more so for gel nails. I have a nail file for cleaning under the nail, cuticle sticks to push back my cuticles and to clean up polish, and a cuticle clipper,  because I believe in doing so. I’ve been doing it for so long, I’m self taught with a lot of my personal care.  Pushing back cuticles only does so much but please have a professional clip your cuticles if you are new the nail care game.

CUTICLE CARE

I’ve been using this brand of cuticle cream for 3 years, and usually I have the Orly cuticle oil which does wonders not only for the cuticles but your nails as well. The Gelish brand is ok to me, I saw more of a difference with the Orly brand.  When pushing back your cuticles you want to do so with some form or cream so that they are softened, and you need cuticle oil to keep the moisture sealed in.

UTENSIL CLEANSING

Yep even though it’s just me, I clean my cleansing tools every time with…

POLISH

The first three never change, I know these products work because they got me to my 2014 nails. The topcoats change, I was a huge fan of the NYC In A New York Minute Topcoat because it dries so quick and my polish lasted so long.  I always add garlic pieces to my nail hardner as a strengthener, the Maximum Growth does exactly what it says it will, and the blue bottle of hardener is more like a gel polish.

The only thing I’ve had to change is my Hair/Skin/Nails vitamins. I was using Nature’s Bounty until I found out Soy can be very bad for the body and since I am dealing with a fibroid issue I’ve had to eliminate a lot from my body. Most Hair/Skin/Nail vitamins have soy so please be mindful. The brand I use now is…

They seem to be working well, and I feel good in knowing there is no soy.

Here is how my nails have been growing the past 4 weeks…

And now…

Mission 2014 Nails In Full Effect

Good Morning!!! Yes…Yes…Yes, I have returned to this form of blogging but do know I have not stopped blogging. Hopefully some of you follow me on social media, I have been focusing on that form of blogging, if you aren’t following me please do…I will leave the info at the end of this post.

I was in TJMaxx to get deodorant…how I left with $40 plus dollars of items, within 2 trips, is beside me.

One of the items was the Ellen Tracy Liquid Lipstick collection.

I saw this rose gold tin can and was intrigued. I opened it up and behold, 4 beautiful nude lippies. Now, I have not tried any of her lipglosses just a few of her lipsticks which I have been pleased with. The liquid lipsticks come in glass bottles which is tre’ chic to me, the all around presentation is worth more than the product is sold for.

Do you see what I mean? Now here are the swatches…

BOLD

BARE

EXPOSED

NUDITY

Those are just one swipe swatches! Can we say pigmented? These liquid lipsticks dry to a non budging matte…

They aren’t going anywhere…now, we have seen the packaging, the pigmentation, beautiful swatches, matte drying, now for the price…

$4.99

I told you! You are getting a great deal with this product. So, the next time you are in TJMaxx, look for these.

I have only swatches these lippies, I have not worn them yet but I am sure I will be just as pleased. Following me on my social media will let you in on more ⤵
