Now I’m warm for now, until it snows!
Peplum has been rediscovered and I’m claiming it for all apple shapes! It sucks in your waist and pulls the eye out on the hips making them appear bigger, something that apple shapes can appreciate. It creates the perfect hour glass figure.
A few things to remember however, is that it should hit at your natural waist not above or below. The peplum should be long enough to draw the eye down to your hips; if it’s too short the eye stays on the widest part of the shape so it defeats the purpose and actually makes you appear bigger. You have to try peplum on to make sure it hits right so it won’t make your seem bigger.
I hope these tips help you out and have fun with your style! Btw I know these pics aren’t the best quality I’m working on that. Stay tuned for more!
p.s. Since I’ve been terrible at keeping up with posting my fall fashion on Fridays I’m going to fill this week up with fashion every day of the week! So check back daily!
This season it’s all about the lips and ombre! So I combined the two for the latest craze in lips! Plus it makes your lower lip look extra pouty!

Your daily routine is not something you give a second thought to since it is a routine your body is used to. But over the last few weeks I’ve spent a great deal of thought on mine trying to perfect it. I think I made great strides in improving my routine. Check out my video on it.

Not all days does this happen, some days I’m tired. Some days I feel like a warm bath as soon as I get home, some days I don’t go to the gym. So it varies a lot but I’m trying to get it down to doing this daily.
I want to throw a disclaimer right from the start, this is my humble opinions. I have an open mind so if you care to dispute then leave me a comment and try to change my mind.
My friend told me about this app that you take a picture of yourself and with a few swipes of the finger you are morphed into your “perfect” self. It was fun and I let her take a pic of me and change me. Not only that, I have seen many an online beauty guru change their features with plastic surgery to try to achieve perfection. I got to thinking, as I always do, about the idea of perfection!
There are a few points I want to make, first I’m not perfect I have very many imperfections that are clearly visible. And to which I have been very vocal about. If you want to hear about just a few of my imperfections there is a video that I did years ago about my imperfections. I will link it.
Secondly, I know I work in the beauty community. I’m a beauty blogger and a freelance makeup artist. I love what I do, I have always said that makeup can transform you and I stand by that. I have seen makeup transform people not just on the outside but on the inside as well. I have done girls makeup and after they saw how beautiful they are they loved themselves even more. They walk a little taller and take a little less crap. So I’m all for makeup and the power it has.
Next point I want to make, I am all for the upbringing of young girls and even guys and the way they see themselves and their self-esteem. I think that is my purpose in life is to care for the younger generation. I want each and every one of my beautiful nieces to see themselves as just that, beautiful. Not only that but I want them to have a positive outlook on what beauty is.
I saw this video the other day and wow! I think the beauty industry should really tone it down and also put a disclaimer that the model was digitally enhanced. I won’t sit here and say that I don’t engage in superficial activity but I will say that the makeup that I do is minimal and really only done to enhance features not alter them.
So here’s what I’ve realized what perfection is; everyone is perfect in their own real way; with a big nose or round face or small eyes, that’s what makes them an individual and perfect. Have I ever wanted to change my features to look better? Sure! Back when I didn’t have a healthy outlook on myself.
But what I’ve come to realize is when you embrace your features you will be perfect!
p.s. I’m not bashing the guru’s that got plastic surgery, what anyone does with their bodies is their perogative.
Halloween is a time to be scared and let your imagination go to darker places. What better way than to read a few thrillers. However, my version of thrillers isn’t that scary, I’m a chicken after all! Check out my Halloween reads, that I read the past week.
I had never read this book before but being a classic I had to read it. It’s actually really sad but has a great ending!
I made a mistake and bought the second book instead of the first in the series but since I’m also watching the TV series then I know what happened in the first book. This is a juicy read in every way.
Another classic I have never read, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But what I read was great and not too gory-which I like.
You can read my full review on my Good Reads account. These count as scary books right? Even if I read them during the day time?
Fall here in Texas isn’t that cold; in fact it’s a beautiful warm breezy season. I love fall because it is cool in the mornings and nights but warm during the day. Perfect! What is even more perfect is that you can wear shorts with booties a sneakers and your set for a chic look.
Fall is the most fashionable time of year! Here are my favorite fashion trends:
For the next 9 Fridays in fall I am going to post my renditions of these trends. I will try to take fashion outfit pictures so Stay tuned! Also all these links are on my Pinterest!
