Melt finally restocked DGAF lipstick and I had to buy it. I'm not usually a fan of bold color lipsticks but I had to try this one out. The color is a dark blue with a semi matte finish. I didn't have to use a lip liner when I applied it for the first time. I love how the Melt lipsticks feel on my lips and this color is a must have in my opinion.

For the past couple of months I've been having a love hate relationship with my hair. So randomly on Friday I decided to get it cut very short. I knew that I wanted a new look because I felt like I was stuck in a rut. I decided to pay a visit to my old stylist, Melanie at Salon Lamaj and let her do her thing. I was inspired by Toni Braxton everytime I see her hair it made me want to cut mine. I must say I was nervous but pleased with the outcome. It felt refreshing to cut my hair it seemed to wars off some negative energy that I was feeling. My youngest son or my Mom don't care for it but it's just hair and it will grow back. Here are a couple of pics of my hair before the haircut and after.

This is a look that I wore on Saturday to my youngest son's basketball game. Usually during the week I don't wear a lot of colorful eyeshadows because of work but on the weekend I like to have fun. I finally opened my Vice 2 palette by Urban Decay and used the color "Damaged" on my lid. I used Saddle and Embark in my crease. I paired it with a nude lip using Mac's Chestnut lipliner with Boy Bait lipgloss. I'm wearing Matchmaster Foundation in 8.5 and highlighted with NW 40 Studio Finish Concealer. I have on Raizin blush and contoured with Studio Fix Powder In NW 58. My lashes are No. 6 from Lashes in a Box. *** All products used are by MAC unless otherwise stated***

Purple lipstick and lipglosses are one of my favorite lipstick colors to wear year round. I love the different varieties of purples from lilac to dark purple. I've shared some of my favorite looks wearing purple lips. What is your favorite lipstick color to wear year round?

It's summertime and my hair and this heat doesn't mix well together. Instead if wearing my hair curly like I did last year I decided to get it braided. The braids will allow me to work out more than I was doing because I would sweat my hair out. I'm always going on vacation to Miami and the Bahamas so I didn't want to worry about styling my hair. Here are some pics of my braids and the different ways that I've styled them so far.

Here are three looks that wore using the Rihanna lipsticks from MAC. The first look is Ri Ri Woo, it's a retro matte so it's drying and long lasting. I actually thought that it would look like Ruby Woo but it has more blue in it. I reach for this morning than Ruby Woo or Nars Dragongirl now.
