Hello my lovelies and Happy Holidays! How was/is your holiday? I hope all of you enjoyed your holiday festivities, I know I enjoyed mine. This Christmas is actually the first Christmas that I've spent home in 4 years and it was great. I got to spend time with my aunts, uncles and my cousins who I don't see that often or not at all. I must say that I was a 'usie' queen yesterday. I know you might be saying "What the heck is a usie?" Well, an 'usie' is a two or more persons version of a 'selfie'... I guess. I tried to take a picture with everyone and YES, I mean everyone, even the plastic Santa Claus.

It's that time of year again when ghouls and goblins come out the shadows... and then there's me. Today is Roy Liechtenstein's Birthday so I was inspired to do makeup inspired by his famous Comic Pop Art. I must say when I did this, I looked at one of the pictures and free balled, and just did it. I'm not really big on Halloween but I do love to see all the makeup of different characters that people create and the costumes.

Hello, Is anybody there?!  Well, Summer is over and it was nice and HOT! It's back to the hustle and bustle of school and it's time to get back in the swing of things. Now, the last time I posted my first Face Time series (here) you guys really liked it. So, I decided that I'll post a look once every week. Just to let you guys know, I don't wear makeup everyday. I mostly wear it on the weekends when I'm going out, as a matter of fact, this summer was SO hot that I opted to hardly wear any makeup. I hope the Fall chilly weather kicks in the upcoming months because "it's hard out here for a pimp" (lol).

 Yesterday I went shopping, I was hyped to see if MAC had any lipsticks from the Archie's Collection but they didn't, that was a bummer. I still had a great time with my family who came into town to visit, I miss them so much! Typically, I'm a one hitter quitter but I said today I'm going to wear this ASOS Curve geometric print dress. The last time I wore this was September of last year.  I decided to pair with a denim jacket and a cute pair of studded flats.

I'm finally off my "No Buy"! and in perfect timing. I'm glad to say that it wasn't that hard to purchase anything for 3 months, I just avoided my daily look through clothing sites and cut any conversation short that talked about clothing. Spring is a few weeks away and my closet always needs something, so I look through and I didn't need anything much BUT I need a few staple pieces to freshen up my wardrobe.

1. A Bright Bag - When I think of spring, I think bright colors. So, what's better than a orange bag. It adds the perfect pop of color to any outfit. Luckily, I got The Essential Jane Bag from Baginc.com (Giveaway coming soon!)
2. Neon Coral Jeans - I'm definitely been loving this trend since last year and it's back again. The Forever21 + line has such a wide variety, it's hard to choose.
3. Cascading Flower Dress. - What's a wish list without something from Asos.com?  I first saw this trend on Gabi from Gabifresh.com and I immediately fell in love.
4. Black and White- Black and White is a trend that is forever. It's never old or played out. I'm loving this peplum striped blouse from the ASOS Curve line.
5. Floral Print Pants- I Love floral print pants for the spring. Forever 21 + hit the nail on the head with this one. 
6. Timberland Boots- I was suppose to get a new pair of Timberland boots since I left one foot at a hotel on vacation last year, this a definitely a must for me.

What is on your wishlist for the Spring?

I love accessories! Spring is soon here and I'm getting my wardrobe ready. Nana from Jibby Jewels Galore sent me a few pieces from her store. Jibby Jewels has on trend jewelry that can be worn year round. What is even better is their prices. The words trendy and affordable always go great together.
