Note to Self

Hello lovelies! 

I hope you are having a nice day.  Today's outfit is a simple black faux leather H&M skirt, button up striped top from H&M, F21 blazer, and black Aldo wedges. I wore this outfit thinking it was a nice warm day and NOPE it was freezing! Note to self: Walk outside before getting dressed!
I am almost done decorating the office! Would you guys like to see it?

Have a day full of love and blessings.

Face Paint

Hi Lovelies, 
I've a received a few emails asking me what kind of make up I use, and how I apply it. Unfortunately, I am NOT a professional make up artist and I just apply it however I feel looks best, lol! I do like to watch make up gurus on you-tube for tips and to watch how they apply their make up. When I buy something and I love it, I will use that product until they discontinue it. That always happens, and it is so annoying! I've literally had the same make up routine for years... Anyway enough blabbing here are the products I use.
First, I apply foundation- Cover Girls Clean #555 (I don't use moisturizer because my face gets pretty oily on its own by mid-day.)
Second, I apply concealer under my eyes to cover my dark circles. I also use this to cover any blemishes or those darn pimples! (My concealer is the thick pencil next to my foundation. It's from the Body Shop in shade  08.)
Third, I apply Covergirl's Clean powder in shade #245.
Fourth, I have really short and straight... I mean really straight eyelashes! I curl and curl and curl. Then I add Maybelline's Falsies volume express mascara. I have to wear water proof in order for them to stay curled.
Then I add a little bit of Covergirl's Fard Accent eyeshadow's to add some dimension to my eyes.  
Lastly on the eyes, I add winged eyeliner with Covergirl's liquiline blast eyeliner in Blackfire 410. It is pretty cool! It's a pencil but has the intensity of a liquid liner. 

For blush I use Covergirl's classic color Rose Silk #540.
My FAVORITE lipstick is Revlon's Soft Nude # 070. Love, love this lipstick.
NOW, for only $3 dollars, you can get this awesome Elf Studio bronzer!!!! (I buy it Target.) I am addicted to this stuff! 
I use it to contour and add some highlight to my face. I especially love this product because with a small brush I use the color on the top right and apply it on the bridge of my nose. You know every girl is self conscious about something, right? Well, yep you guessed it, mine is my nose. I have a little bump and with this bronzer I can make it appear smaller. It really works!






















Hope this post was informational and answered all your questions about my make up! Thanks for your emails!

Love, 

IvonneStacy.

Procrastination

 Hello Dolls,

Can you believe Christmas is next weekend?! I can't. You know me, I am a total expert at being a procrastinator. I haven't even bought one present. Ugh! I will be doing some major shopping next week. Have you guys finished shopping or are you guys on the procrastinator boat?
I put this outfit together at the last minute for my company's holiday party. 
Wearing: F21 black and white striped skirt/ Rory Beca burgundy top. I fell in love with this top because of the cool cut-out detail on the shoulders. Check it out:
Steve Madden black heels and the MUST HAVE item for winter, black tights :) 
Thank you for stopping by! 

Love,

Pussy Bow Scarf

Hello Dolls,

Happy Wednesday!  Last night I took my husband to the Jay-Z and Kanye concert, and oh my goodness....It was amazing! If they are coming to your town and your lover likes their jams I definitely recommend you make it a date night! It was totally worth freezing our butts to go to the concert. I tried to take outfit pics BUT my photographer (aka my husband) was complaining about the chilling temperatures. So...I will wear the outfit again and take pics to share with you guys.

Anyway, now to today's outfit, which is another black on black combo. I am wearing a Zara black skirt, a black turtleneck from Target, and gray heels from Kohl's. (Thanks to MayteDoll for telling me about them!) A great tip: As a finishing touch to any outfit add a scarf and tie it as a pussy bow. It adds an extra touch to a simple outfit! Check out my look:
Have a blessed rest of the week! Happy Birthday to my beautiful mom!!!! 

Love, 

IvonneStacy.

Pink Robots

I am back Chicas!

Finally.....Last week was a drag. First, I had a really nasty stomach bug and then my husband caught it too!  We were both a hot mess. Luckily we are back in business and feeling much better. I definitely missed you guys. 

Todays outfit is simple black on black with a POP of color. Girls, I love this bright, hot pink sweater. At a reasonable $14, it is a steal! If you can get it at your local F21, I definitely recommend it. It didn't stretch and it was so soft and warm. Check it out!
I found these cute dress-forms at Homegoods to display my accessories that I will be wearing for the day, aren't they cool? 
 Fell in love with these tiny Robot earrings, that matched the sweater exactly. 

Double knuckle ring from F21.
Hope you have a wonderful week full of blessings! 

Love,

Being Thankful...

Happy Thanksgiving Ladies!

Gosh, I have so many things to be thankful for but I will try to keep my list short.
I am thankful for:
My relationship with God and his never ending Grace.
My husband.
Our family.
Our health.
Our Church. 
Our jobs.
Our friends.
And last but not least Our Tobi Love.

 I also want to take a second and thank you for your loyal following and always leaving me such sweet comments. I hope that you have a beautiful day full of blessings with your family and friends.

Now to the fashion! I wore this dress to a Thanksgiving dinner we had with our friends this past Sunday. Dress is from Target (still available at the store), Aldo nude heels, orange skinny belt from F21, and orange feather earrings from F21. I ended up with one earring by mid afternoon! I guess one flew away, so sad! Check out the look:
 
Details: Dress is a lovely ruffled one shoulder with polka dots. 
RIP Earring.
 
Accessories:

Have a blessed rest of the week. 

Love,

Mustard Yellow + Black

Hello Lovelies,

I was browsing outfits on Chictopia a few months ago and came across this cute outfit of a fellow blogger. Unfortunately, I didn't write down her blog, ugh! Every time I get inspired I save the pic and write down the pieces I have in my closet so, that I can recreate the look with my personal pieces (see picture below). How do you keep track of your inspirations? I am wearing a mustard yellow Zara dress with a cute ruffled skirt, a black boyfriend blazer from F21, black tights and black Steve Madden heels. Shout out to my husband for the new Nixon watch, love it!!! Check it out the look:
She was my inspiration :)
Earrings from F21 with little owls on them. 
Cinched the waist with a skinny belt . 

Ruffles, Ruffles...
Have a blessed rest of the week! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to visit my blog!!!

Love, 

IvonneStacy.
