Photo Shoot prep

So, a friend/colleague of mine nominated me for the weekly style layout in the Life section of our local newspaper, and I was selected. In a few Sundays your's truly will be in the paper. Below are pictures of my attempt to figure out my makeup the night before. I have much to learn but this the look I went with for the photo shoot. Somebody call Tyra. Lol

Ps. I need to work on my pout look!

Love it. Work it!

Found this on Love it and will work it soon!

Got this shirt at Old Navy in

So excited!

To have a new store resource. Needed a shirt with flouncy ruffle in black and found this at Forever 21. Love it!

Oops and these too! Ha

Both of these were $15 and EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE

Nine West Endine

Shoes Glorious Shoes

Elder Beerman has 75% off the clearance price on shoes. These were $15 each regular $89. Now it's true the last thing I NEED is a pair of shoes, but some things you don't walk away from. Gonna get rid of some shoes to compromise.

Behind The Seams: DIY: Wrap-turned-Scarf


DIY: Wrap-turned-Scarf

This is the most easiest DIY ever! A very fun and simple DIY wrap-turned-scarf project that takes less than a minute to create and requires only one piece of fabric! 

materials: scissors, measuring tape, and one square yard of fabric (preferably a jersey fabric or one that does not unravel easily).

Step 1: Fold the fabric in half from left to right.

Step 2: With the measuring tape, measure six inches down and six inches over from the folded side. Then cut an eight inch vertical slit.

Step 3: Open up the fabric and there should be two openings for your arms to go through.

I just might be ready...

These ads were the first thing that's yet to make me even consider I might be ready for the Fall... That I might even consider looking forward to it.
