Makeup: Colored Lips Anyone?

                                                                          ( No Flash)

Hmmm, I tried this the other day and actually loved it. I saw a few ladies rock similar looks on Instagram as well.
Would you rock colored lips? If so, what color.



Wearing : Wet & Wild Color Icon eye pencil in Green/ vert

I'll surly wear this at night, and probably a little more subtle during the day.

OUTFIT: Thrift Item(s)

These are the few things I got when I went thrift shopping this past Tuesday :)
Discount Center
1065 Broadway
Brooklyn NY
11221

You got me with anything lace or mesh! Size medium, would prefer a small. Might let moms take in the sides so I can wear it with my Aztec pencil skirt...



I just LUV simple tanks like this one. This would usually retail at about $20! Thinking of adding studs or something...


One leg is longer than one! I'm probably cutting 'em as you read. What should I wear with this rugged army cut offs?


I heart my Uniqlo Mickey Tee! (more than my minnie sweater *gasp*) I don't usually go for white when thrifting, but this Tee was next to new...


As I mentioned in my previous post, I got these 4 items for $12





Wearing a mixture of Mac 'Viva Glam Nicki' & ' Ruby Woo'
(looks more peach in person)


Hope you like this post... Rate it :)

DIY: 'Peace'

I had a little time on my hands the other day, so I decided to be creative.

(apologies for the quality of pics. I used my new video cam. Key word 'video' J! smh Will know better for next time)
I was inspired by this pack of letters I bought at Target earlier that day.


1. Draw out the letters  on regular printing paper. I used a permanent marker in black.


2. You can create a design if you want within the letters. I went with Zebra print for a couple letters...sort of  lol
My colors of choice; black and pink. You use what's better for your decor


3. Apply glue on the back of each letter and stick it carefully onto glossy photo paper


4. When the glue dries, cut out the extra "parts" of the P, A ans Es. I used a box cutter. Be careful. I used a scissors to cut the rest.


Then you're pretty much done!

Glue/ stick letters any where you want :)
Your room, kids room...Be creative.


Have fun
