3 Ways to Wear A Dark Wine Lip Color
I’m in NYC this week and the snow has me all bundled up! I think the best way to add some style, while packing on the layers, is with a bold lip. I’m totally digging the latest dark lip trend, ease into it by just using a gloss or go all out with a stain. Keep the rest of the face minimal and just add a winged eyeliner.
Here are the products I used in the video:
- Gloss – Nars “All Night Long” (no longer available, similar color “Rose Gitane“)
- Lipstick – Nars Volga & MAC lipliner in Plum
- Stain – Covergirl Outlast Lipstain in Saucy Plum 450

DIY Sweatshirt Embellishment
I love how sweatshirts got an update this season, they have comfort with style. I found this Old Navy sweatshirt and wanted to add a touch of stud embellishment. See the video tutorial below on how you can accomplish the same look. Can’t wait for it to cool down just a few more degrees here in Arizona so I can rock this sweatshirt.

Beachy Waves – How to Curl Hair Using a Flat Iron
I don’t think this hairstyle can get any easier – just prep with beach spray and in less than 10 minutes you are done. Best part is when I’m traveling I only bring a flat iron with me.

6 Ways to Wear a Maxi Skirt
There was a lot of interest on the original post I did for multi-ways to wear a maxi skirt, so I decided to get a little creative and turn it into a fun video for you all. I mentioned that this skirt is great when traveling light but not until I was putting together the outfits for the video did I realize how great it really is! You can create (at least) 6 completely different looks with just a handful of items.
On a side note, I feel like I’ve been MIA from the blog lately, but the plan is to get back on the bandwagon next week. Things have been extremely busy the last month, so I’m taking a break and ending work a little early today to head to LA to celebrate my 30th birthday with some of my favorites. I promise to come back refreshed and with a bunch of new content (and a little older…)! Happy Friday!
