Lookbook ~ Featuring Urban Decay Moondust Pigments

It's been a minute since I did a lookbook post, this was partly because the small camera I was using decided to lose focus so I finally threw it out and purchased a Sony a5000. I'm still trying to figure out the settings.... do I use flash.... don't use flash..... indoor lighting... etc.... hopefully I will get it right because I love creating different looks and photographing them.

Fashion ~ What I Wore to Chemotherapy

It's hard to explain but I love feeling confident in every way possible and that also applies to my daily life struggles. I like looking put together even when I know i'm going to be sitting in a chair for 3 hours having my chemotherapy treatment.  Today was my 3rd treatment and the first time I let my husband sit with me while having it. I told him that I was going to fall asleep 30 mins after the infusion started and if he wanted to leave and come back in a few hours I was okay with it... but to my surprise he stayed working on his laptop. He bought something to drink and snack on but he told me he did take a little nap!

Fashion ~ Boho Sheer Floral Maxi Button Down Dress

I was searching for sheer maxi dresses on the internet because I wanted another option to pair with leggings instead of always wearing longer blouses or sweaters.  While searching, I was not loving the prices of some of the really cute ones..... so I went to my trusted Amazon site and searched for sheer maxi dresses and so many cute ones popped up I could hardly choose.  I bought three from different sellers all in a size large. These were sellers from China and we all know clothes from China automatically run small so you have to go up two or three sizes.  I wear a small or size 4 to 6 so I ordered a large and it fits perfectly.  There's elastic in the waist and lots of room for jeans or heavier leggings.

Beauty ~ The Top 10 Best Hair Bundles on Amazon for Making Lace Closure Wigs

Top 10 Best Hair Bundles on Amazon

As a Wigmaker I'm trained to spot quality human hair that has an enormous amount of fillers which will ultimately cause the hair to shed and tangle compared to some that add just enough to enhance the blend.  Upon reading the reviews on Amazon of so many bundles, I compiled a list of the best bundles for making Lace Closure and Lace Frontal Wigs. These bundle deals vary in prices as well as in lengths and the amount of hair included in the bundles.  All in all, I think they are all good deals for making closure wigs.  Click Here For More Selections on Pinterest!

Beauty ~ Favorites Items I've Been Loving this Week

As an over 50 beauty blogger, I realized that my readers don't know a lot about the items that I use regularly and always replace. I thought that I would do weekly post of items that I've been loving along with a new featured item that I recently acquired. This way, I can include a review of that item and let you know how I feel about it.

Swatches ~ Juvia's Place The Masquerade Palette

Juvia's Place The Masquerade Palette

Juvia's Place The Masquerade Palette was such a joy to swatch! This company is pretty new, black owned and has a total of three palettes on the market so far. It has become a favorite amongst women of color because the colors are so vibrant and actually show up our our brown skin.  Included is a YT video of live swatches for those of you that just need a little more clarity before purchasing.
