Thanksgiving is almost here, so you need to get your beauty look together. I found a lot of fall festive options to wear on Turkey Day from Sephora and Ulta. Now is the time to get into these fall colors. I love wearing plums, berries, bronzey browns, and lots of golden shimmers. For the past two or three years, I have been wearing brown and gold eyeshadow, golden blush with a hint of plum or berry and a deep and very dark lip. I can’t wait to play around with my makeup on Thursday. Photos from Sephora.com and Ulta.com. Find more options below.
Solange got married and #broketheinternet. She had the wedding of my wildest dreams. I always said that if I got married I would want to do my own thing. I am not the ype to worry about social norms. Solange showed me that yes I can do whatever I want to do, why… because it is my day. Thanks for the inspiration Solange and congrats of your wedding! Photo from Vogue.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and the invites for holiday parties have started coming in. Do you have something to wear? Plus size holiday dresses are getting cuter and cuter. I found a few, plus a jumpsuit, that I thought were to die for.
So I have fallen in love with the music group the Years & Years from England. The lead singer’s name is Olly, and he is also an actor in the UK. He has an interesting voice that has this soulfulness to it. I have really gotten into their music the past few weeks.
AWW SNAP!! UK brand Missguided adds plus sizes to their site, so that #babesofallsizes can get some great fashion. A lot of the UK brands have really good plus size lines. I don’t know what is going on in the US market. It seems like we have to rely on the UK brands and indie plus size designers. Missguided + is a line that I think trendy, fashion forward plus size shoppers will love.
Winter boots are no longer ugly. Many brands make some cute and fashionable winter boots. Most of the boots featured below don’t even look like the regular chunky looking winter boots, and most of them are either winterproof, weatherproof, or waterproof. That is really great considering winter has come early and strong, and you know you need to get yourself a pair of boots before the next snow.
FTC: I paid for the L’Oreal Collection Privee The Perfect Nudes lipsticks myself. This is an honest review.
I recently found the L’Oreal Collection Privee The Perfect Nudes lipsticks at my local Walmart. Finally some nude lipsticks for women of color. I was so happy I found them because I had been looking for a nude lipstick. I saw this collection advertised either on tv or a magazine, but I couldn’t find them in stores. SO far, I have only seen them in Walmart and Ulta.
FTC: I was given this Lumia phone to try for a trial period of three weeks and a $200 gift card. This is an honest review.
Microsoft Lumia gave me one Lumia phone and $200 to spend on clothes for this style challenge. Luckily for me, a lot of the stores were having exceptional Veteran’s Day sales. SCORE!!
The harmonies blending together were so soothing and beautiful. I knew that I really had to share this song with you all. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did. I looked them up and found out they have been releasing an album each year since 2009. I even went ahead and downloaded their Christmas album. Enjoy.
Everybody needs that pair of shoes to take you from day to night. Especially this time of year, you may be hopping from one holiday party to the next right after work. The Jenya shoe from Sole Society can do just that. It comes in a black and a cream colored leather, but I think the third option is the best.
FTC: I was sent The Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette from Kohls. This is an honest review.
Kohls recently sent me The Balm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Palette and I love it. The natural colors can be worn many different ways. You can also create looks for day and for night. I love that the eyeshadows are triple milled which mean that they are super smooth. They lasted a long time too. I used eyeshadow primer, but I think they would have lasted long regardless of my primer use because they just really laid on top of my eyelid. The color payoff is amazing too. I think this palette is going to serve me well.
It is no secret that I love Lupita Nyong’o. I have written about her many a time on this blog. It has been quite awhile since I have put a picture or post up about her though. This month you can see her in Glamour Magazine, since she is their Woman of the Year. The pictures are really great. There is this one blue dress that I really love on her.

FTC: I was given these candles from Brandbacker and Old Factory Candle. This is an honest review.
Hey everybody. I wanted to review some candles from Old Factory Candle. They are one of the perfect holiday gifts that you can give because the candles come in a pack of three based on a theme. You can give people the candles based on their chosen theme. The scent themes are New Born Baby, Coffee Shop, Fall Harvest, Fresh & Clean,Happy Holidays aka the one I received and loved, High As A Kite, Man Cave, Romance, Spa Day, Vacation, Winter Wonderland, and 50 Shades.
I have been trying out the Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Foundation, and I think it is the perfect fall foundation. It is so light and airy on my face. It doesn’t feel thick at all. Actually I can’t feel it after it dries. It really is only for normal or oily skin. It leaves a matte finish, so if you have dry skin you will look like Casper. It is medium coverage. You can build it, but I wouldn’t put too much on if you don’t want to look like a ghost.When the right amount is on my face, my face glows and looks very natural. If I go a smidge over…I’m back to Casperville.
If you need to cover up some imperfections, just use some concealer. That is what I ended up doing. Another thing I did was our a little bit of the foundation out first and apply it with a brush. It is really loose and thin, so be careful and shake it up really well. The top of the bottle comes with a weird applicator. You are supposed to touch it with your fingers and then put it back on your face. That puts germs in your bottle, and that was the only con I could think of. I have found the Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Foundation in different stores for different prices. It is usually around $7 to $10 and you can always find Maybelline on sale. This is a great drugstore foundation. I recommend it.
Shop The Post:
UK brand boohoo lands in NYC for a pop up shop in Soho for two weeks. You have ample time to see the brand in person if you are in the tri-state area. I wish I was in the city right now so I could go shop the pop up shop. Y’all know I love me some Boohoo. If you can’t make the pop up shop, head on over to boohoo.
Ok Go always has the best music videos and their latest for ” I Won’t Let You Down” is amazing. The video is synchronized with dancers and weird scooter/unicycle things. The video was also shot with a DRONE!?!? Talk about cray cray. I think this video was shot somewhere in Asia. Groove to this song during your work week and into your weekend.
Just like the little black dress, the classic black pump or a cute pair of black heels have a classic appeal to them. You can wear them with everything and wear them just about anywhere. Few shoes will get you as much mileage as the classic black pump. While looking on ASOS, I saw a slew of black pumps that instantly caught my eye. Some are available in half and wide sizes. All of the ones that I picked are under $100, but the ones below are just a sliver of what you will find on the website. Photo from ASOS.
