Little Black Maxi

As you guys know I love fashion and dresses! I came across this solid black maxi dress at Original Piece Boutique in Jacksonville, Florida. As soon as I saw it I fell in love! I love the neckline and the side slit! It’s perfect for date nights or for a night out with the girls!

I decided to try it on and it fits amazing! I love the accented top because I can do a simple necklace and a pair of my favorite heels or flats to dress this look up or down!
This maxi is a new favorite… let’s be honest can you ever have too many little black dresses? I took a selfie in the dress so you guys could see what it looks like on!

Ballet BABY

So a lot of you all of been writing in or snapping me asking me what I use on my eyes. Well, here’s a secret tip: I have been using the new Stila eyeshadow from Ulta. I saw it on display and I love anything that glitters or shimmers so I decided to give it a try.

I used it over a white base shadow and it went on smoothly and dried really fast, which I loved. It gave me a really nice shimmer and I got so many compliments on my makeup today when I wore this shadow. I was able to wear it all day without it moving or looking like it was ‘melting’ off.
I definitely love this new Stila product. I love the shimmer and I love the fact is act
ually dries and fast! When I do my makeup in the morning I usually only have 5-10 minutes and this is definitely a product ti”m going to keep using!
Have YOU tried this product? COMMENT below your favorite shimmer shadow you use!

You know how the saying goes, ‘Life is an adventure.’ Well it’s true. Each day is never what you exactly plan out. Yesterday I was so excited to announce that I’m officially the Editor-in-Chief of Original Piece Magazine. It’s a digital online magazine features fashion trends, beauty favorites, inspirational messages, and daily articles about life.

I was so excited to find out about this new adventure. It’s something I’ve always worked hard so and something I’ve been doing for a while. What some people don’t know is I love writing. Writing about anything and everything and one day hope to publish a book. So what better way to put one of passions into place than with the digital magazine.
I shared the photo above on instagram to announce my promotion because it shared the excitement and dare to be yourself message the overall magazine has. It’s titled ‘A Pocket Full of Sunshine’ because of the bright flower used in the photo.
I had to give a huge shoutout to Ralphi from Ralphi’s Photography for this amazing portrait photo. She achieved such an amazing photo for me.
So life is an adventure embrace everything that comes your way. Good or bad make your day how you’ve decided to make it. If you have to change your plans I’ve learn to, go with the flow.

Find Your Paradise

I had an awesome time during this photoshoot and I love this photo. It reminds me to ‘Find Your Paradise,’ with this dress and with the whole atmosphere of the photo.
dscf2576-2
This dress I wore I got as soon as the shoot was finished. It’s from Original Piece and I love the vintage style and the paradise print on this dress. I love that it’s a midi length (because it’s a perfect length for me) and I love that it’s a wrap style so I can adjust how it fits.
In the shoot I was barefoot when I wore it, but you can pair this dress with sandals too for a fun flirty fit. When I wore this look out at night I paired it with these new gladiator themed sandals from Target, and for a daytime casual look I paired it with Jack Roger sandals.
So Find Your Paradise and let me know what you think of this photo by Ralphi Reign’s Photography!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS DRESS????
