Bebe My New Drug

Just like that over night Bebe has become one of my favorite stores. This is one of my newest pieces I purchased online at Bebe with an extra 50% off I was very happy. This is a very sexy but mature look that I put together for church. The pattern is a floral print and the material was a chiffon touch. I notice that there were salmon colored flowers that I decided to have pop out from the dress by pairing it with my ShoeDazzle salmon colored wedges. Together this was a very complete and chic look!

A Floral Engagement

OMG! When I got the call that my two favorite people in the world were going to get engage I was so down. I had brought this dress a few months ago and now I had the time to wear it, I was excitied. To make this dress come alive as with all my outfits I paired it with some accessories. I grabbed my belt from my boutique and took out my sexy pair of strappy heels I had purchased from JustFab. I went very neutural with my makeup adding a splash of color to make my eye makeup POP! This summer dress made an excellent outfit for the engagement party of my dear friends Chrissy & Ryan!

Empowered With A Touch Of Pink

I wore this outfit for a themed looked for my church's Empowerment Conference. The Express pink shirt I've had for a long time over 5 years I must say and it's held up. You can say I truly got my money worth with this item. I paired it with my recently purchase Vigoss USA jeans, which hugs my curves and it's not tight. There is still room to let your body breathe, lol.

I had an awesome time at the Empowerment Day event at The Faith Center. Vicki Yohe talked about her marriage and what she endured and in the end of it God gave her peace. I understand exactly what she is going through however I am on my journey to finding my own peace at the end of my marriage. 

Everyone knows that I love Tasha Cobbs she is an awesome Gospel artist and wonderful speaker. She is a woman of God that I aspire to be, I am on my journey ya'll. She captures me with her voice and her passion for loving Christ. She gave us 5 Tips To A Successful Life Following Christ (Which I will share with you guys soon.)

Check out her video

tasha Cobbs shared an incredible testimony today. Suffering from depression and dark days, God delivered her! Her new single "Jesus Saves" debuted at #1. But God... What He did for her, He can do for you. #WEempowerU #JesusSaves #TashaCobbs

Pssst, finally I was a stage/ raffle girl at the event. I assisted with giving one lucky women in the audience a Michael Kor's watch. The woman that won I actually gave her the raffle ticket at the door. Amazing, that's how I am blessed to be a blessing!

Miss Diva Limited Work Attire

I believe style is a lifestyle and your style speaks who you are. I truly believe a woman should always look her best especially at work. I was playing around with my #BFF phone and she got these really great shots of me profiling in my outfit. When it comes to work wear you can usually spot me in The Limited. They have very young, hip and trendy office attire that does not look like your normal office wear.

How To Make Your Pedicure Last Longer

There is something about the summer when it comes to your beauty routine. Ladies you know it you have to shave everyday, use extra hair products for your frizz battle, and oh yeah get pedicures more often than once every three months. Diva's your toes are on a constant display, wearing those jellies of course. A good polish job is more important than ever during these hot months. I don't know about you but being a fashionista on a budget pedi's cost $25 a pop weekly so in between I usually do an at home treatment. You can join me to!

To Prep: 
1. Don’t use nail polish remover. The nail bed has to be completely free of oils before painting for your longest lasting manicure. Most removers are fortified with vitamin oils and glycerine, creating a slippery surface for polish that leads to chips. Skip the nail polish remover and scrub nails with a brush (an old toothbrush will do) and hand soap instead, then dab on a small amount of 70% rubbing alcohol-30% water solution with a lint free cotton pad, like these Swisspers Cotton Rounds ($2.89).
2. Use a crystal file. Traditional files made from cardboard and metal, and are too harsh. Instead, opt for a crystal file, like this Crystal Nail File ($12) from Sephora, which smooths the edge of the nail instead of ripping into it.
3. Make sure cuticles are properly pushed back. Cuticle left on the nail bed can cause the polish to peel up. If you’re doing your pedi at home, use this Tweezerman Pushy Cuticle Pusher ($17).
4. Choose your base coat wisely. Choose the same brand of base as your top coat and polish because, all brands formulate their products to work best together. I recommends Orly ‘Bonder’ Base Coat ($7.10), a rubberized base coat that grips the polish and makes it go on smoother.

 During Application:
Never paint in a draft. This causes bubbles! Only expose your toes to cool air after two coats of polish has been applied to the nail.
Use a good top coat. I recommend Seche Vite Quick Drying Top Coat ($9.99).
Try nail wraps instead of polish. Dry nail polish or nail wraps like OPI Lacquer Strips ($12) or Sally Hansen Salon Effects because they are “easy and long wearing.”
Use a drying accelerator. Quick drying drops like Qtica Half Time Drying Accelerator ($19) extends the wear of polish and leave polish rock hard in 5-10 minutes.

Avoid contact for 30 minutes. While your polish may seem dry after 5-10 minutes, avoid direct contact on the toes for at least 30 minutes. This means no closed-toe shoes, walking in sand, or dancing in the streets. Sorry!
Apply ointment to calluses. To keep heels and hard callus areas smooth between pedicures, useKerasal Moisturizing Foot Ointment ($9.99) which contains salicylic acid and urea.
Moisturize. ”A good moisturizer is also essential,” I recommend Weleda “Skin Food” or Ahava Mineral Hand Cream ($21).
Reapply a thin layer of topcoat after 5-7 days. About a week or so after your pedicure, reapply use a thin top coat, like Revlon Top Coat or Wet N’ Wild Top Coat, which protect the polish without appearing too thick.
Hide chips with a coat of glitter. Apply a coat of glitter on the tip of the nail bed, similar to a French manicure but with glitter instead of a white stripe. You can also apply glitter to the whole nail, and then always follow with a thin layer of top coat.
Cover chips with polish and a thin layer of top coat. It’s very simple to fix a chipped nail. “Get the color or a very similar color and dab a very thin layer of polish to cover the chip. Then apply a thin layer of top coat.” Now, you’re good to go!
