Galentine’s Day invite

Ladies, it’s about that time again…

I’m hosting my 2nd annual Galentine’s Day party! 
Last year, I made scratch off invites and this year, I used a balloon invite. I got the idea and the printables from Pinterest. 

What you will need: 

1. Printable blow up and pop background

2. Your actual invite

3. Balloon 

4. Sequins/confetti 

5. Cardstock paper -for background 

6. Decorated tape

Print out the background and paste it onto card stock paper. Then print and roll up your small invite into the balloon. Add confetti but not too much that it might annoy your friends. Tape the balloon on the invite and you’re done. 

This year’s theme is Treat Yo’ Self. Love yourself before you can love anyone else. 

So that means… 

SPA party. 

Remember Galentine’s day is for ladies to celebrate ladies and empower each other while having a good time. More details to come



Daily beauty essentials

Someone asked me to blog about my daily beauty essentials. So here it is….

Beauty products in my make up bag that I can’t live without:  

1) BB cream – Smashbox $42.00 

I bought this BB cream from Ulta after spending about 30 minutes testing the different creams. I’ve tested foundation and other products but the BB cream was the best for me. It made me glow and covered my blemishes. 

2) Bronzer – Tarte Park Avenue Princess $30

I was always a fan of NARS but I wanted to try something different. This bronzer is long lasting and blended so well with my BB cream color so I had to get it. 

3) Brush – Ecotools $5.08

This brush is great. I use it to apply my BB cream. It’s soft but stiff enough to blend the BB cream. 

4) Hairbrush – Wet brush $6.98

This is a MUST HAVE. I bought this at a hair salon one day for $15. I love it because it gets through my tangled dead hair. It made it soft and less painful to brush. I recommended it to my friend and she said that her hair doesn’t fall out anymore! This to go brush is perfect for those mid-day touch ups. I found this mini one for $4 at Marshalls.

5) Lip balm – Revlon Matte Balm 225 Sultry $8.99

I am obsessed with Revlon’s lip balm. I have almost every color. I’ve never tried the matte before because I didn’t want my lips to look dry. However, this matte color moistens the lips and stays long. You can find it cheaper at Target.  

6) Perfume – Ralph Lauren Big Pony Pink #2 $21

I love the sweet smell of this perfume. It’s the perfect size to fit almost every purse. 

What are your favorite beauty products ?



Fashion & Philanthropy

Attention local fashionistas:

Are you passionate about fashion and would like to shop for vintage/ high-end brands through an philanthropic outlet?

Check out Wardrobe Boutique! This boutique benefits Career Wardrobe, an organization that provide women in transition to dress for job interviews.

At the boutique, I had fun channeling my own style on a mannequin. It’s a great opportunity to give back and enjoy doing it !
