NOTW past and present

So ladies since I have been away from my blog for like a MONTH WOW!!!! I have combined all of my nails of the week looks I had over that period in this post.
hope you like
This is Lavenbaby by kleancolor and i think pretty in pink also by kleancolor not sure, but I LUV this pink polish the camera really does it no justice its gorgeous.
this color is a really bright tangerine orange color by Sally Hansen (can't remember the name right now). But the camera really makes it look more red than it is. For those of you who have seen this color knows that its FAR from that lol.
This is plum by kleancolor, very rich color I love this also.

The black and pink is by kleancolor, the white is by B.S.N and I used a very thin brush i bought from a beauty supply store to create the zebra stripe on the white.
So my zebra print and pink is what I have been rocking this week. A little boredom and fashion creativity goes a long way lol what do you guys think?? Did them self
A real fashionista DIVA nails are always on point!
smooches :)

I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!

Hey all my lovely dolls and gent :) I know I have been missing in action for a while. But trust I have been soooooooooo busy with everything i just didnt seem to get a moment to post, not even a quickie. But anywhoos I have been walking with my camera so I was able to snap some shots so I will actually have things to post when I do get the time.

So just briefly what I have been up to

Work was usual
School is going good, its tiresome but fun that I am learning all the techniques of sewing different garments, oh you sin call fashion...............I LOVE YOU with the band has slowed down so thats a good thing for me right now, should be picking up in December with all the end of year christmas parties and social gathering can't wait for that.

And now I'm getting ready for Junkanoo which is a HUGE festival over here, similar to Carnival in Trindad or Brazil BUT BETTER more cultural. Its awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! I posted some pics up of the one last year I did. Well it takes alot of time because all the costumes are handmade and decorated so I am actually behind schedule as usual. so typical me.

Pictures of me at both junkanoo parades last year
But basically it is like a 12 hour parade that starts like 1AM where the music section plays instruments, like drums, brass, cowbells and play popular songs and the participants dance in their customes. And the groups compete to see who will win. And basically you just dance your ASS OFF!!! and perform no matter how TIRED you are :) Its really a sight can't really put in words.

I have also been doing a little bit of shopping here and there picking up a few things. So I will be posting ALL OF THAT!, so your wait wasnt in vain. I also found the foundation of my dreams :)
What have all you lovelies been up to. UPDATE ME.

Hello blogger beauties

So I know all week I have neglected my blog because I was so busy that I didn't have time to do a post all week my days were long I was leaving the house from 7am to head to work and then returning 1am the next morning. That was because I had classes from 6-10pm and then head straight to band practice until about 12:30/1:00am.

But anywhoooooo this week is turning out to be a bit better (SO FAR!) so here's a little update about my week. So we had band practice all last week because we started playing at this new club in downtown Nassau so that took alot of my time. However on my day off on Thursday in between classes I was able to drop into one of my favorite stores, they were having a sale and I picked up a few things can't wait to show you guys

I had a NOTW (nail color of the week) to post and I didnt get a chance to post and since then I have change my nail color for this week.

Peacock inspired makeup


So I decided to post some pictures of my favorite makeup application which is the peacock feather colors. I absoutely love the colors in the peacock feather. Infact I have quite a few peacock inspired earrings and accessories.

I'm probrably sure some of you notice my eye makeup are different. What I did was showed two ways in which I apply the colors. If you guys like let me know and I can do a tutorial for you.

Chao and enjoy, hope you like
The left the green and purpe are higher on the eyelid for more of a pop! and dramatic look. On the right eye the green is at the bottom. Which one is your favorite :)

What I used for eye makeup:

Coastal scent 88 color shimmer palette

MAC gold pigment

Kleancolor 916 seafoam green (on right eye)

Til next time lovelies enjoy.

Island beauty

My first BLOG AWARD!!! Yay! and update

Well hello blogger beauties!

I know I have been missing for a couple of days, but I was just adjusting myself to work and school which now takes up alot of my time.

So a little update of what I have been up to lately. I started school this week and I attend fashion classes at night. so it can be very draining but I'm excited to learn to so that keeps me going.

Also I had a few singing gigs this week which was cool, I had a gig on thursday night to sing at this dinner event, they contracted me as a solo singer and I was backed up by another band it was more of a jazz band so it was different than singing with my band but it was nice.

I also had to do a sing-o-gram at a restuarant called Lucianos of Chicago and it was so awkward because the restaurant was so intimate and quiet so everyone heard me singing to the couple and stop eating and just was engage in what was going on, but it was kwel i got a round of applause when i was done so yayyy for me!!!

So that's basically what I've been up to lately besides work.

So I was given my first blog awards by pretty wonderful and she's just awesome for giving it to me so THANK YOU hun! You guys should really check out her blog she also gives the greatest beauty tips.

say what?!?.....update me please

Hi blogger beauties

I hope everyone's doing fine! so I'm just writing this quick blog because browneyes247 told me I wasn't keeping up...and i definitely don't want to bore my readers.

So lately I have been preparing myself for fashion school which starts next week Monday and I know its going to be hectic with work an all, but I'm still excited to see what's new I'm going learn this semester. Not to mention I will be able to share with you guys what I am learning as well. can't wait..... ;)
The first thing I want to do is make myself a romper lol.
What have you guys been up to lately??

I am off tomorrow so I will try to do a makeup tutorial, "peacock theme"

Tomorrow as well on my long list of things to do is to purchase a vanity. I saw a really cute one so I'm thinking I might get that one. I don't think i really need one because i got my bathroom vanity custom made with draws to hold my hair and makeup products but i think with a vanity i would sit down and do more makeup post. :)

I also added some pics, from the last outing I was at, which was a teen pageant hope you like :)

Until then, smooches lovelies!

Birthday goodies!

Hey ladies
So today in the Bahamas was sooooooo hott!! it was almost unbearable, the sun felt like it was right on my neck and yet i have another TWO MONTHS of this!!!! Im usually not one to favor the cooler months, but this year I can't wait for them to come. Good riddens summer!!
After working half off the day in the sun, then heading to the hospital to visit my cousin ( I'm so worried about her) I was pretty much beat that i simply crashed across my bed and fell asleep instantly but i promised my friend i would do a post tonight seeing that i was off tomorrow and didnt have to get up early, so................. that's exactly what I am doing at 12:26am.

Tonight i decided to do a post of all my birthday goodies that i got for my bday this month. Yes its a little late, but better late than never i say :-)
Its not much but its much more than I've been getting for the past few birthdays so thats a good thing.

So I got a few purses and bags. The coach bag and wallet was a gift to myself!

I like the larger black clutch (bottom right) because its cute & chic, but it still holds alot, especially for dressy gigs i have with my band. It can stil hold my make-up, hair brush etc to freshen up between breaks

My cousin bought me a few cute things in my favorite color. I have a thing for glasswear as well so she combined it. A birthday martini glass with pink (I luv her)

I also got a little pink clock and some picture/memo holders, ALL in my fav colors in pink and purple! My friends are the greatest!

I also got some polish in one of my favorite brands (kleancolor) in melon green & barbie pink. I will show later.

And of course whats gifts without someone feeding my shoe obsession. These are purple leopard print michael antonio's, I've been eyeing them for a while and i got them yipee :-)

And some clothes

A black full back lace tank

My favorite piece its a sleeveless ripped spandex shirt (I love it on)

And some ripped (to the side) leggings sexy

I thank everyone for all my gifts thank you guys.

Tomorrow I will try to do an outfit posting, with the ocean as my background :), so keep an eye open for that.

NAIL COLOR OF THE WEEK! purple magic

Purple Magic

So another quik post, this is my nail polish of the week!

Its called Magic and its by claire's cosmetics.
Hope you ladies like :)

A stab at makeup - my daily work face

Hey ladies
So as of late i started wearing makeup to work (to glamourize myself a bit) even though its hot as hell everyday and I've been getting some good response to it so yipee for me
So i decided to post this blog to show what i use for work.

So i use:

MAC select cover-up concealer (NC50)

MAC studio fix powder (NC50)

MAC studio finish concealer (NC42)

MAC blush (coppertone matte)

Jordana eyeshadow (chocolate)

Maybelline great lash mascara

NY Black eyeliner

NY lipgloss

blush brush, eyebrow brush, blending brush

Okay so i don't use foundation cuz its definitely tooooo hot for that.

I use the NC50 concealer for my dark cirlces and the NC42 concealer for under and on top of my eyebrow to lighten that area and make my eyebrows more refine.

I use the jordana chocolate eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows and as a daily eyeshadow. Because I have (which i hate) "flap over" eyelids i use it in the crease to brighten my eyes and make them look bigger.

Everything else is pretty explanatory, I LOVE raccoon eyes so my black eyeliner, and mascara i dnt go without. They also make my eyes look bigger, which i wish i had larger eyes, I don't like my eyes. I only use maybelline great lash, because its the only mascara that can sort of control my extremely curled up eyelashes, they are sooo stubborn.

I pretty much just wear lipgloss for the most part when it comes to makeup because i have a very dark lipline naturally so with some lipgloss my lips are pretty much good to go. :)

Oh yeah and my MAC coppertone matte finish blush! Love it to death. I love the way it looks its perfect for me.

Hope you like leave me a comment :) thanks

Im wearing: Aqua maxi dress - F21
Fedora hat (can't remember from where)

So for some reason I can't seem to go to sleep, even though i have work early in the morning. Maybe its because I'm excited that my computer is working again and I can't wait to spend some time on my blog.

And I have so much stuff to put on there, my trip to NYC, some hauls, and my bday pics which was on the 7th of this month. But of course I know I will never go to sleep if I really started dealing with that tonight.

However since I am ubba excited i decided to upload just one pic its from the morning of my
bday! I had a breakfast date with some of my closest girlfriends (more to come later)
Well now I'm gonna go force myself to bed because i know i will regret this in the morning :P
