They make awesome and amazingly cute shoes….

Good Morning Loves, it seems like forever and a day since I last posted. For those who don’t know I am a special education teacher by day and last week was crazy, BUT I’m back to kick off the week right…
I wanted to share with you my wish list for this month.
Every month I re-analyze my wardrobe and pick pieces I need to add. Here are my picks…
Retails for $145 for 100 ML
I am turning into a parfum snob. I discovered this parfum on www.netaporter.com and I instantly wanted it. I am a sucker for fruity scents and I’m sure this will be my new fave
Mary Greenwell Plum Parfum
Retails for $100
Told y’all I’m becoming a parfum snob… LOL
Givenchy Antigona Clutch in Yellow
Retails for $450
I love simple clutches. And this yellow leather one will probably become my summer bag
Old Navy Jeans
Retails for $16-$35
I love love Old Navy Jeans in the “Rockstar” cut. Definitely a staple in my wardrobe and they make my butt look nice.
Okay so my wish list is kinda pricey… I will probably get the clutch first and then work my way from there. What items will you be adding to your summer wardrobe?
Who doesn’t love accesories?!?!?!? While reading People Stylewatch, I kept noticing jewelry from a designer whose name did not sound familiar. The name was Bianca Milov.
Milov makes quality costume jewelry that is dainty and can be layered to make a statement. She does have pricy merchandise but thats because they contain authentic diamonds. *swoons*
Head to http://biancamilov.com to check out her jewelry…
Here are my favorite picks….
Good Afternoon my loves!! I am back after a short hiatus to give you a quick product review.
Hi my name is Jaime and I suffer from dark circles. Unfortunately for me I have dark circles due to heredity
and lack of sleep. So over the years concealer has become by BFF. Recently I decided to invest in an eye cream so that I don’t have to wear concealer all the time. When I ordered my dip brow and baked eyeshadow from Sephora, I also tried deluxe samples of Tarte’s Maracuja C-Brighter™ Eye Treatment and Origins GinZing™ Refreshing Eye Cream.
After trying both for two weeks both, I decided to purchase the full size jar of Origins for the following reasons:
- It not only reduced the appearance of my dark circles but it also depuffed my eyes rapidly
- The cream had a better texture
- A little bit goes a long way
- Better Priced
Tarte took to long to make my eyes look less puffy and I still had to use more concealer to even out the skin around my eyes. With Origins I looked more awake and refreshed and used less concealer. Also the price was a big factor too. Origins only cost $30 where as Tarte cost $38. Eye cream is a reoccurring purchase and why pay more for a product that takes longer to work??
Origins has now earned a loyal customer. www.sephora.com
Have you tried any of their products before? What were your thoughts?
I love seeing local talent make it big. Get into this new fashion line H+OKO. Maryland born Cin Oko teamed up with former classmate Kay Ha to create this edgy architectural line.
Cheka out their website www.h-oko.com
On the weekends, when I don’t have many bills I like to treat myself…
Here is my some of my haul….
Michael Kors Blair Tri-Color boat shoes. I lucked up because on the website they are listed for $110 but in the Michael Kors store, they were on sale for $55. I think these will be the perfect shoes for work
I also purchased M.A.C. Studio Sculpt Lash. I LOVE LOVE this mascara. The brush applicator is GENIUS. It add length to my lashes without getting clumpy or messy. It also did a great job with lash separation and definition. Definitely worth the $16. *** You have to use this with the prep + prime lash for maximum results*** its sooooo worth it.
Note: I have purchased more items, but unfortunately when I tried to upload the pics that I took with my camera, the photos exceeded the MB limit for wordpress… UGH…. When I figure it out, I will post the other goodies that I have purchased.
This beauty cult favorite is a winner among beauty editors and make up junkies for a reason…
It lives up to the hype.
When you want a great mascara without paying a small fortune, look no further than…
L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara
This mascara, lengthens and adds volume. It stays on all day and the best part is… It doesn’t flake. It’s very comparable to Christian Dior “Dior Show” mascara, but for a fraction of the cost. You can buy this at any drugstore and most times, it’s on sale.
This is the one drugstore mascara, I always go back to
“just last week…. I had to ball on em, sit tall on em, crawl on em….” – Big K.R.I.T
Good morning…. so if you follow me on twitter, you would have seen me lusting and debating about buying some lace up Jeffrey Campbell boots just last week… Well I got them and they came Saturday…. I love them
They are made with soft honey colored leather. They have a cutout at the heel. They lace up to your thigh and can be adjusted to fit your leg. I ordered a size 7, and they fit true to size. The heel is about 4.5 inches and the heel is stacked which makes the shoe comfortable. I LOVE THESE BOOTS, but they are a b*tch to take off. The trick is the loosen up the strings at the ankle so you can slide them off.
The nude colored ones are available at www.flyjane.com (hurry if you want them because they have limited sizes left)
The boots also come in black…
They can be purchased at www.nastygal.com
