Lady In Red...

September 26, 2016

A little story about this dress:

So about two or three years ago around Christmas time, I had to go to a church event and I was in need of a dress to wear, specifically a red dress. I planned on shopping for a dress a month before, but for some reason, I never did. So I went shopping a day before I had to leave for the event. Unfortunately, I went to all the stores that I could think of, but I could not find anything that fitted or looked beautiful on me. It was quite overwhelming and frustrating.
So I decided to go to H&M (it was my last hope); and I decided to give up on dress shopping if I did not find anything there. The minute I entered the store, I saw this dress staring at me. I had seen this dress at a different mall that I went to earlier in the day, but I thought that it would be too big for me so I didn't even bother trying it on. However, when I tried this on at the Mall, I completely fell in-love with it. I loved how the color looked on me and how it fitted me. I was so relieved because I found what I was looking for, after a long day of running around town trying to find something to wear at the event. This is one of my favorite dress of all time!

Also this hat(from Nordstrom) is giving me life! This hat is such a lifesaver for bad hair-days and it looks chic and I love it!!

Oh My Beauty!

September 17, 2016

Happy Saturday!

      Good Evening everyone and hope all is well with y'all. Today's post is a review about the Allure Beauty Box. The Allure beauty box is a monthly subscription box filled with 6 sample products from different makeup and skincare brands. The box is $15 a month. However, you get $5 off your first box, so you pay $10, which I think it is an amazing deal for the quality of the products.

   I haven't tried all the products yet but I love the perfume in this box, because it smells wonderful and it comes in the cutest box.

I love beauty boxes because they are an amazing way for people to try different beauty products and find what works for them. I think the box is also a smart way for people to save money.

Have an amazing weekend, ya'll!

Are They REALLY Worth It?

September 5, 2016

For all the young women out there, whether you're in high school, college, in the workforce, or whether you like to shop or not,  this post is for you.  

DESIGNER ITEMS: Are They Really Worth Spending Your Money On Them? 

        Yes. I strongly believe that designer items are worth it. Investing in designer items saves you more money in the long run, than one thinks. You may be wondering, designer items are crazily expensive, how can I afford it? Yes they are! However, I've come to know that buying designer items is better than constantly buying inexpensive but cheap quality items. I absolutely dislike buying cheap quality things. Here are my top five suggestions for anyone who wishes to own any designer item. I believe that these suggestions will help anyone avoid buying junk and save money. 

  1. THINK of designer items as an investment for the future. It is better to own a quality designer piece in your closet than to own a cheap one and not only will the item last longer, it will also give you a boost of confidence in yourself. And your bank account will thank you one day. 

  1. INVEST in pieces that never go out of style, especially the basics of a wardrobe, and also choose colors that are forever timeless, such as black, white, blush, and red. Investing in pieces that do not go out style will add versatility to your wardrobe, and can help you create a personal style. 

  1. Don't be alarm by the PRICE. I think that people don’t like spending money on designer items, mainly because of the price. We are all guilty of going to a store, picking up something beautiful, but only to put it back down because of the price. However it is better to splurge a designer piece that has an amazing quality and will last for a longer period of time, than to buy an inexpensive item with a cheap quality.  

  1. INVEST only in pieces that you need in your wardrobe, especially items that you wear often. Doing this will help save money and avoid unnecessary purchases. If you are obssessed with shoes, invest in good pair of shoes, because sometimes, shoes can either add elegance to an outfit or just make the outfit horrible. 

  1. SHOP SMART! I think one of the reasons why some women do not like spending money on a brand-name item is because they do not know how to shop smart. Always look for sales on websites or stores that sell designer items. Shop during seasonal times because more than likely, things go on sale. Look for outlets of designers such as Kate Spade, or Michael Kors, because things are less expensive at outlets. Remember that you do not have to buy brand-name items at full price.
