OOTN (Outfit of the Night):::MJ|Sequins|Zebra Print!

Hello Divas & Gents!

I recently posted an outfit of the night that featured this awesome blouse that I picked up at Macy's during the holidays. You can still wear ALL BLACK EVERYTHING ....and JAZZ IT UP! I figured this outfit would be perfect for the Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour Cirque du Soleil performance that I went to. MJ was always over the top so I wanted to make sure and look BAD that night, yet still classy :)

You can view the video to hear more about the show as well as see live footage of me wearing the outfit:

Here is a rundown of what I'm wearing:
Purple, Black, and White Patterned Sequined Tank - Macy's
Apostrophe Black with Paisley Print Blazer - Thrifted! (Salvation Army)
Black Pants by Worthington - JC Penney
American Eagle Pointed Kitten Heel Flats - Thrfited! (Salvation Army)
Wooden Zebra Print Earrings - Custom Made by NaturalHairLatina!
Maroon Blinged Watch - Christmas Gift
Silver Bangle - Beauty Supply Store

It was relatively late when I got home, so I apologize for the lighting. But, here are a few snapshots!

Hope you enjoyed! Which part of the outfit do you like best?

Eye Candy:::Chocolate Kiss: A Valentine's Evening Look

Hello Divas & Gents,

Here is another look from shaneilh (on YouTube) and I's Wet 'n Wild 8 Pan Collaboration Series! This time we decided to do the "brown" side of the Comfort Zone palette upon request. Since Valentine's Day is around the corner, you can feel free to pair this with a deep red or berry lip instead of the nude lip that I use in this look. This would be perfect to wear in the evening! Let me know what you think :)

Here are a few snapshots:

Feel free to post any recreations of this look to my Facebook page!

**New** LA Colors/LA Girl Products ft. - 5 Items for Under $20!!!

Hello Divas & Gents!

Who doesn't love a bargain??? I recently had the opportunity to do another review on and was so excited! I previously did a review on their new NYX HD products (last year), and this time around, I reviewed some of their new LA Colors and LA Girl products! I was able to choose $20 worth of products and I ended up scooping up 5 items. Can you say steal?

You can watch my in-depth review here: is a site that carries a variety of makeup brands for less than retail price. They typically average between 10-15% less than the regular price. They carry all types of brands such as NYX, KleanColor, Cherimoya, The Creme Shop, LA Colors, LA Girl, and many more!

Here is a quick look at each of the products I received.

LA Girl Calcium Nail Builder
So far, this has been working very well. My nails felt strengthened and much thicker after first application!

LA Colors Nail Polish Remover
I like the fact that it is travel friendly, smells good, and removes polish easily! 

LA Colors Diamond Shine Lipgloss (Red Rubies)
Definitely a diamond gloss! It is a great consistency and has just the right amount of shine :)
Traditional doe-foot applicator. Delivers subtle color. 

LA Girl Luxury Creme Lipstick (Sexy)
Very sleek black packaging with clear top and engraved pink letters.
Color payoff is pretty good. The only downfall is that you will have to re-apply throughout the day. The name of the lipstick is printed on tube as well as bottom of tube. Very convenient! 

 LA Colors Artists Palette (Inspiration)
Love the selection of colors in this palette -- contains colors for a smokey eye, metallics, glitters, plums, neons, and pastels which makes a great selection of 50 colors! 
Great value for the price -- only about $8.50 for 50 Shades. Comes in two types of palettes, Abstract and Inspiration (featured here). Colors are well pigmented! The only downfall is that some shades may be too glittery.
Have any of you heard of If so, have you purchased anything on the site, and what did you think about the value for the price? I personally think they offer tons of great deals!
