My Holy Grail Highlighter!

16 Oct

I’ve been using highlighters for a while now and have tried  many but have come to love Mac Mineralize skin finish in the shade soft & gentle.mac-1

It is my holy grail highlighter! I use it down the center of my nose, cupids bow, chin and upper cheekbones for a beautiful glow. I’ve been asked so many times about my highlighter and as promised, I’m finally sharing it with you guys today. The luminous champagne hue looks amazing on everyone. Check it out for yourself! ysjj

Happy highlighting,

Journey

Leopard and Oxblood!

28 Oct

Today’s outfit of the day(actually last Friday’s) is one of my go-to Fall looks- skinny jeans worn with a blazer & cute top and sexy heels. In this case I wore a peplum top and my favorite strappy oxblood heels!  This outfit is of course a high-low mashup because I just don’t like it any other way!  Although I love my designer duds, It is a RARE occasion that I wear 100% designer because I love to mix it up! I almost always have something from Target, H&M or Forever21 in my ensembles.  I’m also quite aware that many fashionistas are on budgets and I really love knowing that my readers can always afford something from my OOTD posts!

I added a link below for the shoes as I always get flooded with questions about where to purchase them.  All other items that are currently available have links as well.

Have a great Monday- Journey.

Louis Vuitton & Yayoi Kusama (first look)

4 Jun

Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Yayoi Kusama, a spunky 83-year-old Japanese artist known as the polka dot princess. Kusama is highly respected  as being a voice for the avant-garde. Her art is so sought after that in 2008 Christies New york sold a piece by her for $5.1 million, a record for a living female artist. Her polka-dotted collection named infinitely Kusama will appear on handbags, clothing and accessories this Summer (July 10th), so be ready to channel your inner Minnie Mouse!

The fashion industry has been buzzing about this collaboration for some time, and now the French fashion house has released  some photos of the collaborative collection.

Kusama’s work will also be featured in an exhibit at the Whitney Museum  in New York July 12th through September 30,2012. For more information click HERE.
