Trend Alert: Colored Denim

Spring is just around the corner and if you like me and have an interest in beauty and fashion, you are probably freaking out over some of the trends for this spring. One of my favorite trends that I have seen is colored jeans! I use to be one of those colored jean haters because I thought they looked super tacky, but for some reason I really like them now.

If you're afraid like me, to wear pink, orange, or any of those other daring colors, try and start with something more in your comfort zone. Start with a color like cobalt blue, similar to your go to pair of jeans, just a bit more colorful. Or try more neutral shades, such as olive or brown. Although neutral isn't the big trend for spring, it will still help make you more comfortable about wearing color jeans. 

Quick Tip for Styling
If your jeans are a pastel color, pair them with similar pastels. But, if they are a rich, saturated shade, use colors with a lot of depth.

I'm pretty good at describing scents for the most part, but with this one all I can say is fabulous! You have to go and smell it yourself! Now it is even more easier to smell this perfume because Sephora just started carrying it. I absolutely love the bottle! It is a beautiful light pink shade with an almost jewel liked appearance and it looks amazing sitting on my vanity! So I will now leave you with this description of the scent from the experts.

Official Descriptionn:
"An expression of the modern woman's aura, this scent at once conveys strength and beauty, glamour and confidence. Luminous green top notes join a heart of rich and exotic tiger orchid and lingering base notes of sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli to leave a sensual memory on the skin. For the bottle, the opulence of jewel-colored Venetian Murano glass inspired its faceted design."

Green, Tiger Orchid, Toffee, Sensual Indonesian Patchouli

My Life: Valentine's Day

I've put up two posts this  past week that have something to do with Valentine's Day. Some may think I'm going to celebrate that day with someone special. But those of you are wrong. I'm single this V-day and honestly I have no problem with it.

Valentine's Day is on Tuesday, which I will take as just any other ordinary Tuesday. And I suggest that you do the same. The truth is for those people out there that are dating someone it will be like any other Tuesday too. The only different thing is that their going out with the person their dating after going to work or school.

So in short, treat this like any other Tuesday and remember life goes on. So don't dread over just on single day, there is 364 365 (leap year) more left for you to enjoy.

Romantic Braided Updo

Braided buns are super easy to do and take less than 10 minutes. This is a perfect romantic updo for Valentine's Day or any other occasion after it. You know what, who says you have to wear this for a special occasion? You can wear it whenever you want!
You will need:
  • clear hair elastics
  • bobby pins
  • hairspray (optional)
  1. Section your hair off into five braids: three in the back, two in the front. Secure each braid with an elastic at the end.
  2.  Starting with the back, take the first braid and twist into a flat bun against your head, anchoring with bobby pins as you go.
  3. Wrap the next braid against the first, being sure to tuck the elastic out of sight. Secure with more bobby pins.
  4. Repeat Step 3 with the third braid.
  5. Finally, take the two front braids and wrap them around your nearly completed bun, being sure to hide the elastics and securing each braid with plenty more bobby pins.
  6. Finish off with a shot of hairspray to set the style.
