Lipstain is the Answer

I love winter, but not all of the things that come with it; dry skin, static prone hair and an almost translucent skin tone. I find that adding a little color to my lips helps brighten up my complexion AND adds a touch of glamor to my day-to-day grind. Go with a lipstain not a lipstick during the day. When you use a stain you don't need to constantly be checking your lips and teeth to make sure your color stays in it's place. Instead, you're free to drink that coffee and eat your breakfast on the go worry free. One of my favorite stains is Revlon's Just Bitten. 

I own Passion and Flame, but am dying to test out Crave. BONUS: the balm at the end of the stick is amazing.

Will You Be My Valentine?

 Alright you taken ladies, it's time to start looking for the perfect V-Day outfit. I'm all looking sexy on date night with your man, but it should be in a less obvious way. Save your party dresses for a night out with the girls please. Here are a few of my top picks...

Lace instantly makes you feel sexy and beautiful.

The color of this dress is so festive and not as obvious as pink or red.

For me, nothing beats the color black. There are so many possibilities with a simple, black dress. Add pops of colors with shoes, jewelry and bags (maybe in his favorite color?..too cute)

If you're going somewhere casual or just spending the day around town this is the dress for you.

This with black tights and platform heels= perfection.

Alright girls, start keeping an eye out for your perfect neon accessory for spring/summer. These bold hues might appear impractical, but I beg to differ. Subtle touches go a long way and you'll find that these pieces are often your go-to outfit completer. If your hesitant, start out with something small, like a friendship bracelet or phone cover, and slowly work your way up to bags, lipsticks, wellies, etc. Here are a few of my favorites:
