There is nothing like a a trend that returns with blissful delight year after year..  I for one have welcomed bold bright eyes with open arms since I was a wide eyed teen.  Here's the thing.   As we get further and further away from those teen years.. some of us a little further than others...It can be hard to figure out how to keep up with this trend without looking like we should be meeting up with the mean girls in the cafeteria.

Bold bright eyes can be fun as an adult.. as long as you keep it simple.  


Okay allow me to explain..

As we transition from Winter to Spring many of us have rituals.  We clean out our closets.  We clean out our minds.   We start eating healthier.   We make way in our lives for all the beauty that Spring can bring.

We also try to figure out how to make the most out of those Winter items that we just don't want to let go of quite yet.  Transitioning from a winter wardrobe to a spring wardrobe can be  a fun and creative experience.   Mixing pieces from

Spring has Spring.. or in some places Spring is springing.. and the easiest and least painful way to step into spring in style is a quick switch of the makeup.  Winter months call for darker more dramatic colors.   But gliding into spring means flirting with bright pinks, poppy peaches and sexy rose hues that are sure to turn you grey skies blue.

Check out my 6 must have cheek colors for Spring 2014.   Pop some

Spring Make Up.... The Orange Lip


beauty blogger, black beauty blogger, ethnic fashion blogger, Orange Lipstick, Spring makeup, bronzer,



  (Hover and click over parts of my face in the photo above to shop the make up in this look)

Spring 2014 runways were full of fresh spring faces.   Beautiful make up and a lip color that was both pretty and prevalent.   Variations of orange sailed down the catwalk and I for one was super excited about it.  Orange has long been a color that I adore for the face.. both on cheeks and lips.   Barley there eye liner,  different shades of a bronze eye (depending on your skin tone) a few strokes of black mascara (not too heavy) and a swipe of orange lip color is an easy way to update your face for spring.
 
So here's what you do..

I happen to be in the air right now as I write this post headed to NYC to attend some events for Armory week.    I know some of you must be saying huh?  Basically Armory week in NYC is  like Art Basel in MIA..  minus the beach.. insert snow.  I love Art and always have.  I come from a family of people who are all artists in one way or another.  So visiting galleries and admiring beautiful artistic expression with like minded people is definitely my idea of an amazing time.

Outfit round up.. Oscars week..

I was ask a whole lot about all the different outfits I wore both during the days and at the parries I attended  for Oscars last week.  So I thought why not do a round up.. 

Throughout the week I mixed a ton of old favorites from my closet and new stunners from some of my favorite brands.  Nothing like digging back in your closet and rocking some of those prize purchases..

Here are my favorites from the week..

Fat Tuesday.. A Couple Creole Gals & a Gumbo Pot

Creole, Gumbo, Creole girls, Creole women, Creoles in los angeles, Creole food, Southern food, Blue jeans,
Every year people from all over the world gather upon New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras.. other wise known as Fat Tuesday!  ..And every year the Creole population of Louisiana celebrate right along side them.   The last Hooray before fasting or giving up something they love for 40 days.

 I don't often speak about being of Creole descent.. so many people don't know..

What is Creole you ask..?

Simply put,  Creole people from Louisiana are a mixture of people of  French, Native American and African decent dating back to the 1600's.   More often than not children of Creoles would marry other children of Creoles.. creating an entire culture of mixed people who mixed the traditions from all three cultures mentioned above.  That's why the food is so darn good!
That's where

My Week of Oscars w/ Vanity Fair and more...

 So awards season in finally over..  Every year L.A. goes in to a two month frenzy all culminating with the most anticipated award of the season... The Oscars.  ...And leading up to The Oscars is Oscars week..  A week of non stop events, parties, panels, predictions and this year for a few if us bloggers, a week of what is now known as the Vanity Fair Social Club. 

I was super stoked when I was invited to come out and participate in the daily workings of the VFSC and participate is what I did.  I made it a point to make it out at some point everyday of the week. I mean how could I not.. such a great group of people all gathered chatting fashion, eating incredible food, daily juice, coffee and a goodie vending machine stocked with products, gift certificates and books that would blow your mind.

I also attended a few of the most coveted parties of the week.  The Vanity Fair Pre-Oscar Parties.  Where I walked the carpet.. chatted with some seriously talented celebs and what would be the highlight of my week...took a selfie (at her insistence) with The Great Annie Leibovitz. 
Like come on.. does a week really get better than that??  And did I mention that I watched the actual Oscar winners cards and envelopes being made..  So cool..

but rather than me going on and on.. I thought a photo diary would say it all so much better!
