5 Lipstick Colors For Valentine's Day........

January 27, 2017

Happy Friday!
I can't believe Valentine's Day is almost here already. How quickly this year is going. Well today, I decided to share 5 lipstick colors that I think will be appropriate for Valentine's Day. Enjoy your weekend!

This lipstick is one of my favorites yet and It is also a new addition to my makeup collection. Of course, no Valentine's Day makeup is complete without a red lipstick. This color is beautiful, skin-color friendly, and although it is matte, it is moisturizing.

I own a similar color by Lancome, and I must say, purple lipsticks are one of my favorite colors, and it suits darker skin complexion. This color is perfect   if you're going for a bold look.

I have not tried this particular lipstick yet, but I have used a similar color and it is absolutely gorgeous. This lipstick is perfect if you're going with a sultry romantic makeup look.

This lipstick color is perfect for anyone going for the "no-makeup makeup" look. This color is also skin color friendly.

My December BirchBox......

January 20, 2017

Happy Friday!

I am finally sharing my December BirchBox! I have heard so many amazing things about BirchBox so I decided to try it out to see what the hype was about. First things first, I love the packaging of this box! And the awesome thing about the box itself is that you can use it as a gift-box.

About the Box....

BirchBox is also another beauty subscription box that is also $10 monthly; and you also get about 5-6 products. I originally heard about this box when I was a junior in high school. One of my friends received a yearly subscription as a birthday gift. I had been wanting to try it out to see the hype and also because I love the idea of trying out new beauty products from high-end to drugstore, every month.

The perfect gift for the beauty lover....

BirchBox is on my list of gifts to give to friends. It is the perfect gift to give to someone that's difficult to shop for. I gave BirchBox as a gift to one of my good friends during the holiday seasons because I couldn't think of what to get her and she loved it! The box is also perfect to gift anytime of the year.

P.S. This is not a sponsored post!

The Ankara Blazer.....

January 11, 2017

Happy Wednesday!

One of the things that I cherish most about my life is being african. There is so much beauty, and uniqueness in every culture in Africa, from the different types of food, to the different prints and colors of the traditional clothing we wear.

Since clothing is a form of identity, I believe that one of the many things that sets Africans apart are the fabrics that we use for clothing such as this blazer.
So today, I decided to show you all how I style my African-print blazer, because it can be quite difficult to style them sometimes.

I received this blazer as a gift and I just love it, especially the colors. I love pairing this blazer with neutral colors because of how colorful it is, and also it looks better with neutral colors.
For this look, I decided to pair it with a black legging, tank, and boots. For my accessories, I decided to wear gold earrings to compliment the blazer.

Ankara Blazers can also be styled with an all-white outfit or any of the colors in the print.
Although I don't have the specific link for this blazer, be sure to click on the highlighted words and also here to find similar styles.

7 Things Your Wardrobe Wishes It Had.......

January 8, 2017

Happy Sunday!

Today's post is about these essentials I think every fashion girl should have in their closet this season. Why? Because these pieces are so versatile and can be worn year round. Shirt-dresses are great to wear by it self or can be paired with the leather leggings and leather jacket for more of a fierce look.






Have a great weekend!
Love, Ceci!

The #1 Must-try Glam Bag.......

January 6, 2017

Happy Friday Everyone! 

Welcome back to another monthly beauty-bag subscription review. Last year, I shared my review on the Allure Beauty Box here, which is also a monthly subscription box. 

In December, I subscribed to the Ipsy Glam Bag, just to find out the rave about it, and also for their adorable makeup bags. This beauty-bag is $10 a month, and you can cancel your subscription at anytime with no charge at all. Each month, you get 5 different products ranging from makeup, haircare, and skincare. 

I like it because it is a more convenient way to try different products without breaking the bank. I was impressed with how quickly the bag arrived, however I was not impressed with a few of the products I received.

The Glam Bag.....

One thing I like about the Ipsy Glam Bag is that every month, you get a new makeup bag, which can be used as gifts or for traveling.

The Products.....

So far I have not tried all the products yet, however scroll down to see my review on the products that I have tried.


  • NYX Prismatic Eyeshadow: this eyeshadow is absolutely gorgeous, from its pigmentation to color. The eyeshadow is in the shade Fireball.


  • The HIKARI eyeliner is such a miss! This eyeliner is not as pigmented or dark as eyeliners usually are. Also, the color is horrible!


  • The MAKE moonlight primer: I am not so sure about this product. I think it works well; I will monitor how well it works and I will let y'all know.

That is all for today. Please leave questions or comments and let me know if you plan on trying out this beauty subscription bag. 

Have an awesome weekend!!

Happy New Year Everyone! I can't believe we are in 2017 already; oh! how fast time flies by. I am so excited for this year especially, for the world of fashion and blogging. Last year, by far, was one of the best years I have ever had. So many amazing things happened that was just beyond anything that I could have asked for. I just want to thank God for his amazing blessings that He keeps pouring over my life, and I can't wait to go through this year's journey with Him. 

I decided to share a few trends that were seen on the runway for this year's fashion and it's interesting to be aware of the trends  that are appearing on the runway. Although it is important to stay true to your personal style and not follow all trends that appear in fashion, I personally feel that these are some trends that are great to incorporate in to your wardrobe for the year.
