When it comes to my personal style, I honestly just wear whatever I feel like wearing. I rarely stick within a particular theme. I have always been a fan of wearing oversized hoodies and sweats, so I’m happy that in recent years it has become more accepted and stylish. Athleasure is literally my new favorite way to dress when I have to go run errands, go to the airport or just want to lounge around on my day off.


TOP – Adidas crew neck sweater paired with a black Betsy Johnson velour hoodie. The crew neck sweater is cute on its own, but I felt like something was missing. Pairing it with a hoodie helped to pull everything together.

BOTTOM – Adidas velour track pants. Cozy and warm. Be sure to keep a lent roller on standby though because these pants literally attract everything.

SHOES – Adidas EQT AVD/91-16. I usually ONLY wear these shoes to workout in, but they were the only sneakers I had that could complete the look. My Adidas original superstars were not cutting it.

Modern Mod | My 1st Editorial Makeup Shoot

Hey everyone!

The past couple of weeks I have been putting more effort into my freelance makeup artist hustle. As much as I adore applying makeup to my own face, there is something exciting about overcoming the challenge of doing makeup on other people.

The photos featured below will be placed in my portfolio section of the blog. Inspired by the wardrobe stylist, Tiara Chameleon, and her 1984V vintage clothing collection, I wanted the look to be edgy but simple. Thank God for the iconic Twiggy with her deep dark crease, and stringy black lashes. While playing on that past, the full fro’s and landscape give the looks a modern twist.

Wardrobe Stylist: Tiara Chameleon

Photographer: Courtney Wright

Originally using a felt tip liquid liner, I found it easier to use a cream based product to outline the crease and create the false black bottom lashes.

Erica’s mono lids posed a challenge at first, but I decided to play it safe, keep the eye shadow minimal and play up the eyes with bold, long, false lashes instead.

I gave Ashley a pop of red eye shadow in the outer v of her cut crease look.

Feedback on anything I post is always appreciated! I hope to present more editorial inspired makeup looks in the future.

#MOTD | Playing With Color


Happy Monday! Sometimes when I’m bored, I like to pop on a synthetic wig and play with my makeup. For this look I used the Morphe 35B Color Glam palette. As much as I like this look, I gotta be honest – I think Morphe palettes are just ok at best ( and I feel like I can say this because I own 2). Too much hype for eye shadows that can barely blend. The shadows were pigmented tho, I’ll give them that.

Anywhooo…take a peek at my photos and let me know what you think in the comment section.





Should I list details?

Makeup of The Day | Something Bold

The number one thing that all of my Instagram friends love about this look, is the lip. What is crazy to me is that a year or two ago, you would never catch me creating \ wearing something so bold. Developing your makeup skills and expanding on your craft goes beyond practicing blending techniques and winged liner strokes. The more involved you get, the easier it is to feel secure in yourself and secure in the looks that you want to explore.

I would see ladies in public going all out on their makeup and look STUNNING and I would just sit there in awe (and the slightest bit of envy). It was not so much about the look, as it was the confidence oozing out of their pores. Not only did I love that, but it was something that I wanted for myself but for whatever reason, could not obtain.

Since then, I’ve been able to bring my inner confidence out. By wearing my confidence on my sleeve, I feel like my makeup looks have improved drastically.

Makeup Details:

I used the Tartiest Pro Palette that I recently wrote about in my Sephora Haul blog post.

Lip is from Colourpop Cosmetics – “Dr. M”

On a scale of 1 – extra, how bold of a look is this for your personal style?


Rose Glow Makeup Look | It’s Ok To Be Extra

Hey ya’ll! I created a little something real quick. Originally I filmed this look and planned on posting it on my YouTube channel, but the lighting was pretty horrible and the perfectionist in me wouldn’t allow it.

Since the start of my makeup journey, I’ve been obsessed with full glam looks. I think they are so artistic and require practice, patience and skill. It amazes me how creative some of these makeup artist are getting and in some ways, watching them create these looks has helped empower me.

IMG_1740 (1).jpg

I’ve always been a bit afraid to create full glam looks of my own and honestly I have no idea why. What I do know is that its a new year and I can do whatever the hell I want.


I welcome the extra with open arms.

I’m ready for the next phase of my glow up and I hope you all are ready too.
