Fashion Haul: Steve Madden

Hi Everyone,

 

I was in the city, per usual, and did a little bit of shopping at Steve Madden in Soho. I’ve always loved the brand and style (plus I had a gift card) because you can find things that are on trend as well as a few things that are different and signature to the brand. The seasons are going to be changing soon and so I wanted something fresh and fun to step up my wardrobe. Typically, I wear a lot of neutral colors so I’m aiming to add more pops of color and fun prints to my life. As a fashionista, I’ve got to switch it up and keep up!

 

I recently bought a ring light and tripod so now my room has turned into what I call, the studio. Here are the looks featuring my items from the SM mini haul…

This belt purse, which is a cousin to the fanny pack, was an amazing find find at Steve Madden for about $50. I love the Off-White brand that’s popular among celebs and Insta influencers right now. The signature yellow belt makes an outfit look edgy and is the pop of color I’m looking for. Since, I can’t afford the labels yet, I hopped on the chance to get something similar.

Message: Don’t feel any kind of way if you can’t afford the real thing and have to buy a cheaper brand. Truth be told, it’s all about how you style it.

These sneakers really had me going back and forth. They’re definitely an acquired taste. For someone like me, this was a risky move and I’m proud of myself for hopping on it. Can’t wear these shoes with everything but they won’t sit in the back of my closet, especially since I paid $100 for them.

Message: When trying to style a risky piece of clothing or accessory, you should adjust everything else to fit said item. For example, it’s not what do these shoes go with, but what goes with these shoes. How can I make them work?

Valentine’s Day with Leaders Cosmetics

Hi Everyone!

 

Valentine’s day is going to be different for me this year. Even though I am still single and my DM’s are collecting cob webs, I’m spending February 14th with someone special. Me.

This is a day dedicated to expressing love and that includes self love too. No one can give you the kind of love that you have for yourself. That’s the kind of love that started at such a young age and will continue to grow with you throughout the rest of your days.

There are numerous ways to practice self care, my favorite being face masks. I love giving my face the ultimate treatment it deserves. I wear make up regularly, sweat when I’m at the gym, and STILL have family members that like to pinch my cheeks. So when I’m able to, I like to treat myself.

This Valentine’s Day, I’ll be using face masks from Leaders Cosmetics. They offer a Daily Wonder’s Kit, which comes with a pack of six face masks that serve different purposes and are made from premium cotton. It’s a small boost in your daily skin routine that will help hydrate, clarify, and soothe your skin with the goal of a near perfect complexion.

I tried one already called “What Happened Last Night?”, which is a radiance revitalizing mask and I absolutely love how it feels. Between the premium cotton and the solution it is saturated in, all I needed was two sliced cucumbers covering my eyes. They recommend leaving it on for about 15 minutes, but I may have left it on for a bit longer.

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day!
