Glow Up Already

8 Feb

In case I need to remind you, my nail polish addiction is out-of-control. My current obsession: Glow Up Already. You can wear it by itself (like I did in the picture) or use it as a top coat to add some bling to your color.

Trends I Dislike: Feather Hair Extensions

21 Jun

I don’t normally talk about trends I dislike, but this whole feather hair extension trend is HORRIBLE! As far as I’m concerned, I hope it dies a quick and painful death… and soon, because every time I see one in your hair I have to physically stop myself from ripping it out. I hate to break it to you but you’re not the first person to do this either. You’re not original and different. You look like Miley freakin’ Cyrus or Ke$ha. NOT CUTE. This trend has GOT to go.

If you cannot resist the temptation to decorate your head with some feathers try feather earrings. Those are totally acceptable (and they don’t make me want to rip anyones hair out).

Turquoise and Caicos

14 Jun

I’m addicted to nail polish. I love having my nails painted all kinds of crazy colors. I literally feel naked when they aren’t painted. So, I’m always switching up my polishes.

Now for the summer, it’s all about Turquoise and Caicos (Get it?!).

Trends I like: Leopard Accents

25 Jul


Tolani Leopard Print Scarf

I have always loved animal print. Call me crazy but I totally think it’s a classic and it can be oh so seductive. With that said, it’s extremely easy to go overboard with it. So keep it simple stupid! Animal prints should only be used in moderation. I think the safest bet is to just leave the animal print to the accessories, like shoes, scarves, bags, etc.

Trends I like: EXCESS-orizing

27 Jun

I was raised in a home where accessories were meant to be simple and understated. Wearing too much calls attention to yourself in a negative way.

However, I have always fallen victim to the trend of over-accessorizing. I remember one time in eighth grade I had three big rings on one hand and my dad said to me, “what are you, a pimp?” HA. I couldn’t tell you why but I just like a lot of bling. At one point in time I was all about double everything. I wore two necklaces: fuck with wings and the letter “C,” two watches (neither of them worked), and even two earrings in one hole!


In my opinion, the more the merrier.

P.S. Thanks Alika for being my hand model!
