Style Inspired By Blossom

red wall

 

Blossom is 90’s sitcom that made a huge influence on me.  Blossom was very imaginative and had an opinion about almost everything.  Just like me.  Blossom wasn’t your average girl, either, and that’s what made her special. She was quirky, had cool fashion sense and was very relatable.

My parent separated around the same time the show came out.  The show made divorce normal.  I saw a girl like me dealing with the same issue I was going though.  A lot of her feeling were my feelings.

A lot of my favorite childhood TVs show come though in my current clothing chooses.  What’s your favorite 90’s TV show.  Which one is your biggest fashion influence?

Dating While Internet Famous

internet-famous-1

 

 

“Man I can understand how it might be
Kinda hard to love a girl like me
I don’t blame you much for wanting to be free
I just wanted you to know” _ Kanye West (Famous)

 

I’ve a few people as about my dating status my post on my first date at the museum.  Well that when nowhere.  I found it very hard to date as a blogger.  Let me know blame blogger it could be this age of social media.  I’m in a Instagram profile like 92 weeks ago like oh hell nah.  Yes I’m that girl, lol.  I’m all on a Twitter post from 2014 thinking why is he tweeting about having to pay child support.  I have to do better.

In this social media is age the first thing a person will sometimes ask you for is your Instagram.  Even before your phone.  I had this one guy see I was a blogger and ask if I could promote this mixtape.  Dude I’m not part of your street team.  Or worst they think I’m going to blast them over my social channels. That would be a no.

Well that’s the dry update on my dating status, lol.  I’m going to start using a few dating apps in March.  I’ll let you guys know how that goes. In other news I found a face mask that I’m loving. You can read about it here.

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Egg Cream Hydration Mask

egg-cream-mask-4“The only rule at Too Cool For School is that rules are meant to be broken.”

_Too Cool For School

As regular degular shmegular girl who has a real love for all things beauty I’m here to give you the scoop on Too Cool For School’s Egg Cream Hydration Mask.  I’ve seen many of Too Cool For School products around my local Sephora store and decided to picked up all three of the brand’s microfiber sheet masks.  Their three masks target skin hydration, skin firming or pore tightening.

Too Cool For School is a Korean brand dedicated to quality and creativity.  They say their goal is to brings together the latest skin care and makeup trends with a diverse community of experimental artists.  They bring innovative products, playful packaging, and a unique beauty experience.

Too Cool For School’s Egg Cream Hydration Mask is cruelty-free, silicone-free, parabens-free, sulfates-free, phthalates-free and hypoallergenic.  The mask has a high moisture retention rate and is made of delicate ultra-fine microfiber. The microfiber sheet mask offers a hydrating and nourishing egg extracts, coconut water, niacinamide, and other botanical extracts for radiant and plump skin.  The coconut water provides hydration and quickly penetrates into skin. Niacinamide and camu camu extract are rich in vitamin C to brighten the overall appearance of skin.

I’m really happy with the results from using the Too Cool For School’s Egg Cream Hydration Mask.  After the wearing the mask for 20 mintunes my skin was left glowing and hydrated.  My normally dry skin was left very radiant.

SPEND OR SAVE : Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner

marc-jacobs-beauty-highliner-4“Eyes are everything to me.  I have no problem with the rest of the face.  I just think eyes are so expressive.  You can say a lot with your eyes.  The eyes stimulate the other person’s imagination.”

_ Mac Jacobs

 

I’m not an MUA nor have I ever claimed to be one.  Now that you know I’m just a regular degular shmegular girl who has a real love for makeup you’ll  really like this  Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner review.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner says it offers a waterproof bold & intense color in a matte finish for extreme wear.  It’s being said to be a gel pot eyeliner encased within a crayon.  First of it’s kind, an exclusive to Marc Jacobs Beauty. The brand says the eyeliner should sit in place for an 12-hour wear.  The eyeliner has a built in sharper to help keep a perfect point for a precise look.

The matte finish is prefect for a person who wants a glitter-free and super-rich pigment. They don’t dry instantly.  It does take roughly 15 seconds to dry.  That’s good because that gives you time to play with your look before the highlighter settles.  Or it could be a bad thing because the product could shift on accident.  I like that it’s a waterproof gel formula.  I also like that it  has a built in sharpener however, if you forget to reattach it the sharpener could be lost.

The Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner can be purchased at marcjacobsbeauty.com or sephora.com.  I would say at $25 save your money.  Mac Jacobs Beauty Highliner sized at 0.01 oz  compared to MAC’s pro longwear fluidline  at 0.1 oz for $8 less can’t compare to a pot gel liner.  Yes, the pencil is very convenient and has a super fast drying time.  I can see myself taking this with me to the lobby of a chic hotel as Marc envisioned.  The brand’s claim to be long wearing is very true!  The major perks of the highliner is the sharpener to keep the point sharp.  It really does help in getting that crisp line we all love.  The application was great and I loved how the pencil looked on me.  It’s the price I can’t get past.  If they dropped the sharpener and shorten the pencil a little maybe Marc could  get the cost at $15 maybe. If you’re a Marc Jacobs Beauty fan this gel eye crayon will be worth every penny.

 

 

marc-jacobs-beauty-highliner-6Highliner takes about 15 seconds to set, so if you work quickly with a small smudging brush, you can create an instant smoky eye.

I LOVE A DRESS WITH POCKETS

dress-with-pockets-13

 

 

There is something special about a dress with pockets.   I love them.  They make me feel like I’m on top of the world.  Pockets can take a dress from yes to yassssss!  I have a few dresses with pockets.  In the past one might say my obsession with pockets have left my wallets somewhat flat.  However, Gwynnie Bee help with all that.  Gwynnie Beee is an online women’s clothing rental subscription service for sizes 10-32.

Shopping takes me to my happy place, =).  Thanks to Gwynnie Bee I can now go to my happy place daily and my purse won’t take a hit.  I wanted to share these with my community because I often hear comments about the cost of plus size clothes.  I feel the pain too!  I want nice outfits but paying $100 to $200 for one look is to much.

With Gwynnie Bee you can pick from trendy, casual and professional dresses, tops and bottoms.  The pieces come in range of brands to like Eloquii, City Chic, Asos Curve, Junarose, Adrianna Papell and Modamix just to name a few.

5 takeaways from The Makeup Show Chicago

themakeupshow

 

I attended The Makeup Show Chicago and it was amazing.  As a Chicago blogger I love attending events like this and sharing it with my readers.  My Snapchat boos saw all the fun in real time.  I mean wall to wall lipstick, eyelashes and highlighters.  Beside feeling like a kid in a candy store I did learn a lot.  I want to share 5 takeaways from The Makeup Show Chicago.

 

My first takeaway from The Makeup Show 2016 is Chicago people go hard for makeup.  Guys and girls lined up early to see all The Makeup Show had to offer.  James Vincent  said this year was the most attended Makeup Show ever.

 

 

My second takeaway from The Makeup Show is the standard for beauty industry started in Chicago with Mario Tricoci.  During his keynote he spoke about his love for hair.  With all that his has accomplished he said he’s a hairdresser first.  He also spoke about the discipline that has guided his over 60 year career.

 

 

themakeupshow-2

 

 

My third takeaway from The Makeup Show is everyone’s makeup up journey is different.  The Lip Bar started in 2011 when a Detroit native, Melissa Butler, decided to forever change the way you looked at lip color and with great products and hard work The Lip Bar can be found online at target.

 

 

themakeupshow-chicago-3

 

My fourth takeaway from The Makeup Show is beauty brands are wall to wall.  Bring cash and credit to be safe side.  No one wants to leave their favorite lippie behind because they didn’t have the right currency. A separate blog post and Youtube video of my The Makeup Show haul is coming soon!

 

tms

 

 

My fifth takeaway from The Makeup Show is when you come come ready to slay!  All styles are welcome.  Be the must beautiful you.  I saw some many stylish people with beat faces.  I feel all styles were represented from team natural to pin up.  It was great to be in a place were all forms of artistic expressions though make up and hair were displayed with confidence.

 

 

 

The Makeup show Chicago 2017 is already set.  This is the must-attend event for all makeup professionals in the Midwest!  I’ll be right back at it November 17-18, 2017.  Hope to see you there! Until then follow The Make Show on social media Facebook, Instagram & Twitter and by using the hashtags #TMSCHICAGO #INSPIRE #themakeupshow.  The Makeup Show also makes stops in Orlando, NYC, Dallas and LA.  See themakeupshow.com for more info.

The Plus Side of Daya by Zendaya

Daya by Zendaya brand isn’t new.  First launching in 2013 as a shoe brand it has now expanded it’s reach to include clothing.  Zendaya said it’s something she has been working on for a long time. “I’m so excited that we’re finally going to get out there. The process has been such a creative journey for me. … With these pop-up shops, I’m thrilled that I will not only showcase the clothes, but also get the chance to meet my fans in person and see their individual reactions to the clothes. It will be fun to see people touch the clothes and feel and wear the different pieces. So glad it’s all going out to the world.”

 

 

 

Zendaya crossed the country to hit all three of her pop up shops in one day.  The pop up shops were held over two days in NYC, Los Angeles and Block 37 in Chicago.

The pop up shop gave me a chance to see the clothes first hand and check out the plus sizing.  The Daya line is plus friendly going up to XXL 20-22.  I tried on a few pieces and the people who are size 24 maybe 26 can fit some of the pieces in this unisex line.

Daya by Zendaya is fat girl approved!
