My Inspiration to Fashion 

I know for the three years of me blogging you all are thinking to yourselves who has inspired this girl to do what she does on here? You will know today in this blog post. My inspiration for this post came about one day when I needed an input on an outfit for internship. I sat at my desk and thought to myself “this person has done a lot for me with all I needed to feel comfortable in my own skin.”

That one person in which I will talk about today is my sister. She is my main inspiration to fashion and how I express myself till this day. I would start off by saying that she has inspired me since I was in diapers, but that would be nonsense. Technically, she inspired me in elementary school. Every weekend we would play dress up as she puts makeup on my face. When going shopping, my sister (and mom) would pick out the cutest clothes for me to wear going back to school. My inspiration has just begun…but not just yet.

My inspiration for fashion has escalated by plenty, starting in middle school. My brother and sister would go to places such as H&M and Marshalls to find cute fashion pieces and heels for me to wear. Not only did I take it up a notch (or so I thought) with my fashion; I also decided to delve into makeup…learning from my sister of course.

There was a time when I did not feel comfortable to wear all that I wanted to because I made others (i.e., bullies) influence me on my appearance. Thanks to her (and other family members), I began to gain motivation to wear what I want, how I want, when I want.

Because this motivation has helped me, I decided to take it up a notch with my fashion and makeup little-by-little between middle and high school. With regards to motivation outside of fashion within my secondary goals, my sister has influenced me through it all. When I told her about making a YouTube channel and a blog for my expression in fashion, she was right on board. Starting on June 6 of 2014, I began to express myself through my interests with makeup and fashion.

If it weren’t for my sister, I would not be writing blog posts on fashion looks, makeup looks, and product reviews. Through her, I became strong with my passion for the content I put on here. Even though I’m not a tween anymore, I still go to her for advice on outfits and makeup to get a second opinion.

Overall, I wanted to share this post as an appreciation note to my sister. Also, I hope to influence others who need motivation to feel comfortable within their own skin and not let anyone get in their heads negatively.  In other words, have the right people influence you so you can be comfortable in your own skin.


Maybelline Brow Drama VoxBox Review 

Hey again. It’s been a few months since I have done a product review on the blog. If you’re someone who follows me on Instagram, you will see my brief reviews on what I think is great and a steal at such an inexpensive price. So here I am, except this time doing not only one but two product reviews. 

My first product review by Maybelline is the Brow Precise Micro Pencil in the shade Auburn. This is the first product I used to fill in most of my brows. Turns out it works really well. It fills in most of my brows, getting the job done in an instant. The best feature about this product too is that it has a spoolie brush off to one side for blending purposes. Once I blend the lines from my brows, everything looks smooth and natural. 

The next product whil will get the job done on having your eyebrows look this good is the Maybelline Brow Drama Shaping Chalk Powder in the shade Medium Brown. There are five shades to choose from out of the product. Right after I use the pencil, I place this on top to fill in my entire brows. This does a fantastic job at doing this. The only bad thing with this is that there is a lot of fallout. If you decide to use this product, I suggest you clean around your brows afterwards. 

Overall, I would give this entire VoxBox a 5 out of 5 due to the quality of the product and a go-to product I will be using for when I’m on the go (i.e., errand runs). If you haven’t already, you should go purchase these products at your local drugstore. Each are under $10.00. See you in another post. 

P.S. If you would like a Brow Routine, let me know in the comments below. 

*I received these products from Influenster free for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.

Makeup of the Day: May 20, 2017 

With tackling internships and what is required for me to complete it successfully, I managed to take the time and take pictures of different makeup looks I have accomplished. This makeup look was in inspiration from YouTuber, Raven Elyse. I watched her soft pink makeup tutorial and managed to copy the exact look, using similar colors she had used but with different products. Below are the makeup products I used:

Eyes: Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Palette in Primavera (lid color), Burnt Orange and Love Letter (crease colors); Sephora Waterproof Liquid Liner in Black Lace

Lips: MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum and Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Honeycomb

There were many concoctions to creating this exact lip color, but I managed to get it right. To find out how you can get this look, watch this video and show some love. For more eye looks I created using this lovely eye palette, check out this blog post. For more pictures and fun videos with this look , make sure you check out my Facebook page.

I know there was a lot of plug in the last section, but I had to do it so I can help anyone out there who needs it the most. Comment below more looks you would like to see on the blog.

P.S. I cannot believe I am near the 1,000 views milestone. That is amazing, thank you for all of your support. I will celebrate through a fun live chat with you.

P.S.S. I just noticed that my makeup fits in with the popular trend for the summer with the monochromatic makeup look. Comment below a color you would like for me to achieve within this trend.

Changes Made to the Blog 

Hey peeps. If you haven’t noticed already…I changed my blog look! I wanted something that was sophisticated with a hint of girliness included. I will not say that this is permanent; this is temporary for now but I have a few other updates and events coming your way. 

The first event I wanted to touch base on was the live chat for Instagram and Facebook. I had originally planned to do this during spring break,  it my internship came in hand. I cancelled it due to priority purposes. However, I do plan on having these live chats in June. The date for this is still pending (and might change depending on what I have scheduled for that day).

The second event I wanted to talk about (or tell you) is I will make more blog posts soon. Right now, I’m cooking up some ideas as of what I can make my blog posts about so I can share them with you all. I am open to blog post requests that you would like to see. 

To get the updates on me, make sure to follow me on my social media outlets. Thank you very much for reading this.
