Pink Kisses Returns Taking Style and Ambiance To The Next Level!

 

If you haven’t already heard, the Posh and Popular YouTube Series, Pink Kisses has taken things up a notch! We are out of my house, and in one of the most fabulous new private event spaces in Downtown Detroit, for the next several episodes! I wanted to give you more this season. More style, more ambiance, more beauty, more content with substance, and of course more fabulous female entrepreneurs to highlight! It was important that the space and the décor helped reflect each of those elements, and so the planning began!

What I wore for Episode 1:

Jumpsuit: House Of Chic LA
Shoes: Miu Miu
Signature Kiss Necklace: Lulu Frost
Belt: BCBG

Don’t mind me, I was just welcoming all of our guests to the party!

What’s Cupcakes and Conversation without, cupcakes?

We kicked off our first episode of the season with a hot button topic that many people have been discussing over the last 8 months:
Do you expect your friends to support you in Business?

This Cupcakes and Conversation discussion topic derived from a tweet CurlBox Founder, Myleik Teele posted in the fall of 2016 that had social media in an uproar.

Our very own Brittany Adams wrote an entire article on MyBrownBox regarding this topic that sparked quite the conversation between she, Myleik, and myself via social media! Check out the episode, to hear more!

Say hello to our resident DJ! The talented and fabulous DJ XO! My vision was to turn this experience into one that our guests and subscribers would be excited to enjoy! And what’s better than a little party atmosphere? DJ XO kept the party going and the energy high for us the entire day!

I also had the pleasure of interviewing the amazing Shaleena Cole, the woman behind Leo Sage Images. She has been a friend to our brand for a while, and we wanted to hear more about her story and how she got her start in photography! You won’t want to miss a chance to hear from this awesome woman in business!

It Would Be A SCANDAL To Miss This Collection…..

Scandal

 

 

The Limited Brand and ABC have come together to make every fashion lovers dream come true…

“Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress Kerry Washington and costume designer Lyn Paolo, in partnership with Elliot Staples, head of design from The Limited, have developed a new fashion line exclusively for The Limited inspired by Shonda Rhimes’ top-rated ABC drama, Scandal, which airs Thursdays at 9pm EST and premieres its fourth season this fall.”

It is official… Every Scandal lover will have the ability to get a little piece of the Olivia Pope pie with this dream come true of a collection. As many of you know, I am a HUGE fan of the show Scandal, and I typically am watching to see what ‘Olivia’ will be wearing. Her wardrobe never ceases to amaze me. From the infamous white Burberry Pea-coat we saw last season, to her ability to make wearing light colored neutrals effortlessly chic and powerful. I am all over this new collection this upcoming Tuesday! It is set to be released in The Limited Stores across the country and online September 23, 2014. This is your chance to get the high end looks you fawn over on a weekly bases at a fraction of the cost!

I cannot wait to see the craftsmanship of the collection! The Limited, being a specialty retailer, is known for great quality and I have no doubt they have pulled all the stops for this exciting collaboration! Washington, Paolo and Staples collaboratively developed each piece in the collection, which is characterized by its authenticity, originality and unique details and trim. Tops, dresses, pants, jackets and outerwear are included in the fall collection, with prices beginning at $49. Yes, great quality at great prices!

I cannot wait to see this fabulous fall collection in person! I will definitely be getting my looks together this Tuesday, will you??  ! I’ll see you at The Limited!

Roses Are Red… Violets are Blue… V-day Inspiration!

Bring on the cupcakes and chocolate kisses…. What’s Valentine’s Day without flowers, cards and box of Sweethearts from a sweetheart! I love, love… So being able to celebrate this time of year with people I love and look fabulous in the process is my kind of holiday!!  BOOP!!

IMG_8061 copy copia

It’s no better time of year, for ladies to be their most girly, fun, flirty selves! Whether you’re in a relationship or not, take this Valentine’s Day to look your most soft and feminine!

Wear that cliché pink or red dress! Why not?? I mean who loves you more than you? And besides, you’ll finally have a reason to look hot!!

Beauty Tips: PINK or RED Lips this V-day; If you’re not a lipstick girl, start off with a soft pink lipstick you’ll feel comfortable with…. But please, attempt to try it! You can’t be afraid of a little color! My suggestion for lip color this V-day is of course RED RED RED!! My go to red lip color right now is RiRi Woo, from the MAC Rihanna Collection. I also love MAC Red by MAC. My go to Pink MAC colors are Impassioned, Girl About Town, and Pleasure Bomb from the Rihanna Collection. I also am a sucker for Maybelline’s Red’s and Pink’s… And they typically have great deals on the Maybelline colors at your local drug stores!!

photo (6)

Another thing ladies; curls are so flirty… Men LOVE curls… Make sure you make an appointment with your hair stylist for your fresh V-day do! If you can’t afford the salon, no worries… FLEXY RODS are my saving grace right now!! I achieved my curls in the photo above by flexy rodding my hair the night before! Just make sure you brush them out to get this look!

Now back to the fun stuff…… THE LOOKS!!

If you have a date, pick silhouettes that hug your frame in all the right places! Men love solid colors like red, purple, black, pink, and blue! (Just a secret I’ve learned from all my male friends!)

And, if you don’t have a date, get dolled up in your favorite flirty dress and have dinner or drinks with the girls.  My girlfriends are my loves! If more people spent time loving those around them, they wouldn’t be concerned about who or what they don’t have! But that’s another blog! LOL

Valentine’s Day is about love… Self Love being most important in my book!!

My look of choice this year, FLORAL!!!! I love floral prints, and with them being on trend last spring and this upcoming spring, what better way to get dolled up during the most romantic time of year?!?! I love a great baby doll dress, and Topshop didn’t disappoint me with this adorable number. I’m a petite girl, so a lot of times I need dresses that synch my waist, to show I have a shape. Baby doll dresses are great for petite ladies who like to show off, without doing too much! ;-) I love flowers, so a great floral print dress is just the icing on the well dressed cake!!

Pear Shaped Ladies: My suggestion is a fitted skirt with a flowy top, or a bandage dress.

Model Frames (Tall and Slim): My suggestion is a bandage dress , a baby doll dress, or fitted lace top with a wide-legged pant.

Full Figured Beauties: My Suggestion is a skater skirt and fitted top, a high wasted pencil skirt with a fitted top, or a wrap dress.

So bring on the floral print and the form-fitting dresses! Be your sexy fabulous self this Valentine’s Day, who knows…. If you don’t have a boo, you may get one that night!!! OOOOOOHHHH!!!
