Lighten the Load…

Summer is in full swing…. Which means hotter temps and less clothing. Why bog yourself down with a heavy handbag?? During one of my recent visits back home to Baltimore, I scored a really cute bag from Michael Kors.   The Jet Set Metallic Crossbody wallet. When I purchased it, it was on sale for $100 however it is currently listed for regular price ($168) on the website. I love the idea of rocking small metallic purses because they look and feel lighter. They also add a touch of glam to any outfit and compliment any color. Here are some affordable options.   Coach Crosstown crossbody On sale for $155… Continue Reading

How to Stay Glam During the Summer…

Hello Glam Goons, this post comes as a request from one of my biggest supporters, Shana (Hey Bewski). She wanted some suggestions on how to keep her make-up intact while going to different summertime functions such as pool/beach parties, BBQs, and etc… Before I list products to wear, let me first give you some tips…. 1. KEEP IT SIMPLE…. Pool parties are not the place for dramatic eye make-up and contour. Save that for night time events when the weather is a bit cooler. 2. FOCUS MORE ON SKINCARE. It is easier to be effortlessly glam when you don’t have to cover blemishes. Drink plenty of water and be vigilant with… Continue Reading

Hey Fellas…..

With plenty of companies catering to to ladies for clothing and beauty personal shopping websites, the fellas finally has a company that caters to them. Trendy Butler (www.trendybutler.com) is a website that sends you a box of clothing for $55 per month. It’s similar to Shoedazzle. You create an account, create a style profile (which is you telling them what you like style wise) submit it to the website, and wait to to receive your box of clothing. A stylist handpicks the clothing. You can receive a jacket and shirt in one box and pants and a hoody in another box. The website claims that the clothing is name-brand but… Continue Reading

What I am Excited for…..

I recently started purchasing products from BH Cosmetics and I am now a late fan. (I have the Missy Lynn Palette and the 26 eyeshadow and blush palette… I can do swatches if you are interested but they are very dark brown skin friendly) Recently they have emailed me about their new palette from the Wild collection called “Wild and Radiant”. It is a highlight/bronzer palette that can be used as a bronzer, highlighters or as eyeshadows. The best part is the price. It is only $8.00. This is a great opportunity to explore highlighters if you have not already. I can’t wait to buy it. Head over to www.bhcosmetics.com… Continue Reading

Here Comes the Bride…

This blog post was requested by a supportive and faithful reader who just so happens to be getting married (Congratulations April!!!) So in celebration of her new engagement, I am writing this post about wedding dresses. Amongst all the stress a bride faces when preparing for one of the biggest days of her life, the pressure of finding a breath-taking dress, that not only makes her look good and feel good can be a bit daunting. I know this may sound cliche, you must first identify your style or at least the look you are going for as a bride. In my opinions bridal dresses fall under the following categories…… Continue Reading

Delightfully Different…

In this post, I wanted to highlight off the beaten path shoe designers. Give Zanotti and Louboutin or Steve Madden and Zigi a break ladies….   First designer is from Italy, AGL which stands for Attillio Guisti Leombruni. I actually discovered this brand on Eva Chen’s page on Instagram. She is the fashion editor for Lucky Magazine. They call themselves a luxury shoe brand which is true because of the luxe materials they use but their prices are a little more reasonable when compared to other luxury brands. You can find their shoes at Nordstrom.com     Prices range from $300 to $500 The next brand is from Britain (which I… Continue Reading
