confidence in what you wear is a very important aspect of your personal style.  i prefer wearing pieces that accentuate my shape and even more now that i'm working out and noticing the changes in my body.

eleven ways to a more stylish you.

must haves

if you don't have it yet, get it! here are a handful of pieces that can be worn in so many ways that should be staples in any woman's closet.  consider each and every one of these an investment! 

1.  boyfriend jeans : i like to throw these on with a leotard or a t-shirt.
2.  adidas hooded sweatshirt : keeps me warm! 
3.  t-shirts : get these in every color, i like to tie them and wear them with a high waist skirt.
4.  black bodycon dress : dress this up or dress this down, you can't go wrong! 
5.  cargo pants : these can be worn with just about anything, instead of your regular denim skinnies, get these! 
6. roshes : i got my first pair to work out but i wear them to run errands, so comfy! 
7.  parka : parkas are my go-to outerwear.  wear it with your black bodycon dress and a pair of nude pumps.  
8.  envelope clutch : goes well with just about everything and looks great. 
9.  vintage earrings :  instead of everyone's statement necklace try some vintage earrings for a more sophisticated look. 
10.  deep red lipstick : to top it all off, a little bit of vamp will go a long way. 
11.  nude pumps :  they accentuate your legs and go well with your entire closet.

my beauty report.

make-up is one thing i love!  i use it to enhance my natural beauty and create more definition especially when it comes to the structure of my face and my eyebrows.  I LOVE shaping my eyebrows and contouring my face, above all i cannot live without lipstick.  

these are just SOME of my essentials but most importantly the ones i use more often.

NARS- laguna bronzing powder; i love it because of its consistency and it gives me a healthy tan.
MAC- superb extra dimension skinfinish (LE); great to highlight for contour for a shimmery peachy glow.
TARTE- medium sand amazonian clay 12-Hour full coverage foundation; the most amazing foundation i have ever tried. i like to apply this foundation with a damp beauty blender.  
MAC- brick lip pencil- using lip pencil to apply my lipstick is essential, i like to use brick with reds because it gives it a deeper undertone. 
JSI- amante lipstick; i love the texture and brightness of this lipstick. 
l'oreal- voluminous smoldering eyeliner; bold, blendable & affordable!
ABH-  dark brown perfect brow pencil; if you want amazing eyebrows get this asap.
MAC- in extreme dimension lash mascara; lightweight mascara that gives my lashes the perfect length.  
BENEFIT- medium/deep gimme brow; allows your brows to stay in place all day.  i apply this after i am done with all my makeup. 
ABH- dark brown dipbrow pomade- this is the perfect pomade so that your brows can stay dark and defined all day long.
MAC- studio finish spf 35 concealer; perfect to clean up your brows and lipstick.

six of my favorite mascaras


there are so many different mascaras out there, from high end to drugstore,  you can go a lifetime and use a different one every single time you decide to apply some on.  throughout my years experimenting with make-up i've always had some that i consider my "holy grail."  for example diorshow blackout mascara was one of the very first i've tried and i will never ever forget how AMAZING my lashes looked after each time i've applied it.
