When I start my week with my cousin (inside joke) Ilse then I know my week is going to be a prosper one.
What Ilse and I enjoy doing is working together brainstorming with each other on business and our blog. We love creating content together and we have hours of fun doing it.
Ilse has a fantastic blog called Live Learn Luxe It and we motivate each other when it comes to pushing one another on how to enhance our blog.
Being a Beauty Influencer takes a lot of work and commitment. She’s definitely more discipline about posting daily. I’m getting there you probably noticed that I do a lot of my posting all day on Sundays. Tomorrow I’ll post an article that Ilse did on her blog. You might remember me talking about it.
Wait…what do you think about my purple hair? Is it a Hit or Miss?
As a young girl, we grew up hearing “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.” Well, that something blue will be the new trend in 2016 for brides. Bright, bold cobalt blue will be seen more at weddings in the flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses, the brides’ shoes and even bright bold eye shadows.
At a recent bridal photo shoot I decided to play with NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Giove, a navy blue eye shadow that can be used on the lid for a smokey eye. Remember when wearing a strong eye you should keep the lip color very light so I selected a nude YSL lipstick and a nude Dior lipgloss. Brides your something blue doesn’t have to be hidden anymore, it can now be worn down the aisle.
