Hi lovelies, I have wanted to write a style post about some black jean outfits. However, I have not had the time, but I promised I would post more for this new year. I think black jeans have been my staple piece because it’s easy to style. Also, you can dress it up or down.
Business Casual Black Jean Outfits
We all have those days when we struggle trying to find something for a brunch or just a casual put together look. I have been really into pairing my black jeans with a white or any color flowy blouse. I got this shirt a while back, and it just has gotten me through so much.
Casual Black Jean Outfits
Who doesn’t love a comfy casual look that makes you look like a street style goddess? My favorite thing to pair my black jeans with are t-shirts especially my favorite band t-shirts. I do tend to wear bagger t-shirts to give it that lose feel. The Catfish and The Bottlemen t-shirt is a small and fits loose; while the piped piper t-shirt is a medium because I bought it online and I did not know how it ran. I would have gotten a small, but a medium still fits fine.
Night Out Black Jean Outfits
If it’s a night out with the girls or just a special occasion, then pair up the black jeans with a little top. I love to dress up jeans with lace tops. I think it’s my obsession with lace. I thrifted this crop top, and it has this cute zipper on the back. I like to keep it simple and elegant.
Let me know what’s your favorite way to pair black jeans.
The world has been blessed with another Fenty Beauty product and this time it’s no other than Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick by Rihanna. These lipsticks are said to long-wearing, soft matte finished, and intense color shade that WILL FLATTER ALL SKIN TONES. Finding a shade of lipstick that looks good on you can be tough because it might look good on the tube but not turn out the way you wanted it.
My Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick purchase.
Before I start, I will like to state that I am not a big lipstick person but I decided to give it a try because the other Fenty products stole my heart. I purchased the color PMS. The color PMS is a bold darker brownish/purplish lip color. I went big and bold. Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick do come in 14 shades that match the rainbow from reds to purples, so there is a shade for anyone.
Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick hits and misses.
- Looks great on any skin tone.
- Vibrant colors.
- Amazing price tag.
My thoughts on Mattemoiselle Plush Matte lipstick.
What can I say Rihanna has done it again! This lipstick made me fall in love.
What I loved about the product was that it is lightweight, not just the packaging but the product itself. The formula did not make your lips feel sticky with the product. Not to mention you get full coverage with only one application.
I took the all-day wear from 9 to 5 pm to see if it would last and it did plus the afternoon. The color stayed vibrant and bold. My favorite thing about this lipstick is that fact that it was made for any woman’s skin tone. I can understand the struggle to find a tone that matches my skin tone. Let’s not forget to the fantastic, reasonable price tag.
Let me know if you guys decided to try Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick and let me know your thoughts.
It’s been a while since I updated you all but my blog has been going through an identity crisis. I decided that I’m going to make what I want to so it’s simply going to stay as it … a music and “lifestyle” blog. (I hate categories.) I thought it would be nice to post some goals I have for 2018 to keep me motived.
- Stay healthy.
- Get into graduate school.
- Grow my blog.
- Wake earlier.
- Be a little more outspoken.
- Go to a music festival.
- Not drink so much pop/soda. (whatever you want to call it.)
- See BTS if they ever come close to where I live.
- Cook for myself.
- Not eat so much meat.
- Walk more.
- Maybe get a job in what I studied. I bet my parents would love that.
- Continue to love myself.
I hope you guys help me stay true to them.
My Sundara Karma’s spotlight blog post is far overdue. I’m sorry but my love for them is still very real.
Who is Sundara Karma?
Sundara Karma is an indie/rock band from Readings, England. The band consists of Oscar Lulu (vocals, guitar), Haydn Evans (drums), Ally Baty (guitar) and Dom Cordel (bass). They have been topping charts with their recent album Youth is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect with it topping the top 50 UK album charts.
Sundara Karma’s Sound.
Sundara Karma has this very underappreciated style that you cannot find on the radio nowadays in my opinion. They have this very poetic and soft grunge rock sound. I don’t want to compare them to any band because honestly, they are themselves. That is what I love about them.
Sundara Karma’s lyrics.
Sundara’s lyrics are very poetic and revolve around the everyday troubles of youth especially when you look their album Youth is Only Ever Fun in Retrospect. They sing about finding the hope of living to the misunderstood communication between lovers:
“But ain’t it funny that we’re never
Certain of the way we are
Another youth wasted and eternally tainted.”
Plus you if you are literature fanatic you can see the references they incorporate into their lyrics.
I believe this Sundara Karma is going to make even bigger than where they are today. They have a sound where you can identify them and say “hey that Sundara Karma”. Plus their style is overall is themselves from eyeshadow and blouses. Not only because of their talent but also their humbleness.
I saw them live back in April and they are the kindest band I have met. There were around 30 people and the crowd, but they played with such a passion. Not only that they said after and made sure they met everyone. Honestly, they pretty humble and their music and personality are going to take them even bigger.
The long wait is finally over I caved in a bought Fenty Beauty Foundation. I purchased Fenty Beauty: Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in color 230.
Fenty Beauty: Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
My Fenty journey started with I bought Fenty Highlighter, and I instantly fell in love. I decided to wait to purchase the foundation because honestly, I am not a foundation kind of girl. I caved, and I had to see what the all the rave was.
- It’s very silky and velvety just like the bottle says.
- No caking!
- All day last.
- It oxides.
My overall thoughts on Fenty Beauty: Pro Filt’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation.
Fenty is another gift that Rihanna has blessed with us. You know it’s good because I am not a foundation type of gal and this has changed my whole perspective. I now make sure I have Fenty on before I leave my house.
When you apply the foundation, you can feel the softness of your skin. It goes on smoothly. The foundation is not so thick, so if you are looking for fuller coverage, you might have apply 2 or 3 coats.
However, even if you apply two or three coats it never gets cakey. It leaves your skin looking poreless and fresh. Plus it looks great all day even through a nine to five shift.
My only downfall was that it oxides. Meaning that it dries darker than what it previously. I initially had gotten a sample for 290, but I had to go back and try a lighter sample which leads me to 230. My recommendation is to make sure it dries a good five to ten minutes.
Besides that this has to be my new favorite product of 2017.
