3. The first time I attended public school was high school.

4. My worst international travel experience was Paris, not because it wasn’t beautiful, but because I lost an entire half a day of sightseeing with friends because someone jumped in front of the train my friends were scheduled to arrive on. Crazy right!? (I plan to go back for longer than 48 hours very soon!)

8. I was on the hit reality show ‘Making the Band’. I learned I would be on the show the week after my college graduation. I was only a finalist, but it was an unforgettable experience. Now if I can figure out a way to raid the stage during the Bad Boy Reunion, my life would be complete!

A Simple Sparkle & Shine!

IMG_1290

Keeping your look simple doesn’t always mean you have to be super conservative. You can always add a touch of glitz and glamour to any easy going look. Some days I don’t feel like wearing tons of jewelry, so I opt for a little sparkle in my attire!

Some days a cute top, with a pop of color can do the trick! The simplest looks can often turn the most heads! No jewelry, just glammed face and nails! I even love doing this look with a simple white t-shirt and hat! (more…)

Camouflage Cutie!

IMG_1221

If you can believe this or not, there was a time in my life were I used to be afraid of doubling up bold prints… Yes, that’s right. You could not have paid me to put print on top of print. I would have preferred to just blend in, and not stand out with prints,  a chameleon of some sort… But now… I’m like, keep the colors coming! The bolder the better! I’ve actually had this ensemble since last year and never had an opportunity to wear it, so at the first sight of a beautiful spring day, I was ready to bust it out for a day in the city! Whether you’re going to a girls luncheon, shopping, church, or the tons of other places us girls-on-the-go frequent, it’s ok to add a pop of color in a room full of black and white!

And if your wondering, yes this is a skirt and jacket! (more…)

Beauty Secrets I Live By: Fresh Face Glamour!

 

For every woman, there is that one thing that makes you feel like your look is complete. For some it is the right hairstyle, for others it’s a certain necklace or pair of earring. For me, it’s a perfect makeup application. I never feel completely glammed or ready for a great event or night out without my makeup done to perfection. Keeping a great BEAT is the key to perfection for me!

I think it started from my days as a pageant girl and a performer. As a singer, even if I didn’t have a lot of money for a great new outfit, I would always splurge to get my hair and makeup done for a dramatic over the top look! I also think that your face is the first thing people notice, so creating a flawless look can always leave a lasting impression!

Now, I am not a professional makeup artist, so my day to day makeup looks are generally very fresh faced, but I keep a great artist on deck! And I think every fashionista should. All Posh and Popular Dolls should have at least 4 makeup artists in your contact list that you can call for those special events in your life.

Between my engagement photos, bridal shower, (more…)
