The Life of M.E.

26 Apr

Sometimes I over think things and in reading some blogs it just made me realize how simple some of this really is this blog is my personal space, my safe haven, where I share my ups downs highs and lows about (trying) making my way in the fashion industry. It’s important to me to get this store up and running because God has given me something to do…it’s not just about the laws of fashion but changing the game as to what you can be…what you can do. I think we sometimes fail to remember that with God NOTHING AND I DO MEAN NOT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!! Philippians 4:13 will always be one of my favorite scriptures because it empowers me! We have remember that we are a chosen generation and it’s our TIME to DO whatever it is that we want to do!! Everything started off as a dream now what are you going to do with it. This…MY business is set up to let you know dreams do come true and that this shy little girl from Gary, IN is now grown up into a Beautiful, God fearing, Fashion Forward, Forever Fly, Uniquely and Divinely created individual! Fashion is to inspire…it can inspire others while you inspire it! So again I thank you for traveling with me on this journey called 4 the Life of M.E.



H&M Body Conscious

25 Apr

Hey Hey Y’all!!!

It’s been a minute, I know but life has been hectic for me lately but we won’t dive into that right now because I want to talk about one of my favorite brands H&M. I watch them closely because I’m so inspired by them. They constantly are re-inventing themselves and I am in love with the concept of their new line called Body Conscious where all of the clothing is made out of recycled material! Genius right! And everything is so GORGEOUS. When I think of recycled material I don’t initially think couture or high fashion…I think earthy laid back casual but it’s the complete opposite. They have done an awesome job with the designs! Check out the pics below and let me know what you think!!!

Later Loves!

Maybelline’s Master Duo (Review)

24 Apr

I’ve returned to report my take on the post “About Face”. This week I wanted to spotlight Maybelline’s Master Duo 2 in 1 liquid liner.

So of course I went to my favorite 1 stop spot Walmart to purchase this product. Unfortunately they only had the “Bronzed Shimmer” in stock instead of the “Black Lacquer” :(. My personal preference in liners is the blackest black possible, however to my surprise this “Bronzed Shimmer” actually looked nice on skin. Now the advertisements in my eyes are a little misleading because I was under the impression that the applicator when twisted turned from a “thick tip” into a “thin tip.” Negative, the tip is dual so YOU have to turn the applicator @ a 90 degree angle to achieve “thick” or “thin” liner. So I felt like I was cheated out of my $$ but Maybelline redeemed themselves after I applied it to my face; it does’t smudge, dries in about 2 minutes, and the color is rich with pigmentation. Now to achieve the “thick liner” I did have to go over my line twice. The real question: would I recommend this product to you?? Yes! Even though I was tricked on the actual mechanics of the applicator I love the fact that the liner dries fast and doesn’t look dried out is worth the money.

Take a look for yourself…..

About Face!!

4 Apr

Hay-looooow out there! First off I want to thank all our new followers! We greatly appreciate your support and hope that you “share us” below 🙂

This week I wanted to share a few new beauty products that snagged my attention. The first item is Maybelline New York’s ‘Master Duo’. I saw the ad on t.v a few days ago and I literally wanted to snatch it out of the t.v lol. This is actually Maybelline’s first 2-in-1 liquid liner. It has a dual tip which allows you to go from ‘thin’ to ‘thick’ with a twist of your wrist!

The second item is L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier B.B Cream. If you’re a makeup junkie like moi, you’ve heard everyone talking about “B.B Cream” lately. The B.B Cream is said to hydrate, prime, perfect, and correct your skin with 4 shades of your choice.

The 3rd product is Neutrogena’s Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser. I have large pores (which I hate) so this product is suppose to reduce the look of your pores just by washing your face. It’s non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), soap-free, dermatologist tested and rinses clean off of your face.


I’ll be reporting back soon to tell you “if” and “how” these products worked on my skin, ttyl :)!
