Wearing black lipstick is definitely not for the faint-hearted! The color is so daring that the first thing you might think of is that it is too goth. I myself, have struggled with making this lipstick work. In fact, this is my second time wearing it.
I learned that to make this shade work you must make it the center of the look. In turn, the eyeshadows should be complementary to the look rather than adversary.
In the video above you can see how I finally made this lipstick work in a sultry way.

Have you tried wearing black lipstick before? Let me know in the comments below which black lipstick is your favorite.

Dear Fashionistas,

Happy new year 2018! The end of the year festivities passed in a blur. Truthfully, 2017 was a year full of difficult lessons for me. I went through many struggles this past year, many of which I did not share with you all because I want this blog to be a source of positivity for you all. I'm still learning and dealing with all that happened to me this past year but in the end what I wanted to say is that despite all here I am, still standing and fighting for my dreams. 

Below are the best happy snapshot moments of 2017. Despite all, I did manage to fit in many laughs, in the company of great friends/family, and I'm grateful for that. 

For 2018 my plan is to focus more on me and what I want for my life. I want to develop myself more both mentally and physically so that I can deal with issues more efficiently. My career is still up in the air really and my goal is to define it with more certainty. I've always loved my creative side but unfortunately creativity doesn't always pay off the bills. Still, I'm putting more effort into the hobbies I love to transform them into my career. My dream board has remained the same as it is a working progress.

In addition, I was encouraged by Peter to start daily vlogging to not only document this period of growth in my life but also so that I can learn to be more comfortable in front of the camera. I officially uploaded my first daily vlog today as you can see below. I hope these vlogs can give you a glimpse into my life. And that they can show you that fashionistas like me are real people with lives that are not always glamorous. 

Let me know in the comments below what your resolutions for 2018 are.

Hi fashionistas,

I attended an Art Basel even this year as well and it was another memorable experience. This year unlike last year (more info here) I did make it to the Art Basel exhibit itself. It was quite an entertaining experience because there is quite a lot to take in while there. Honestly the video above alone does not do it justice because I could not fit in ALL of my favorites in it, that's why I posted a pictorial tour on my Instagram here. 

Nevertheless, what you all see here is only about a 20% of the exhibit itself because it was a huge event and it was impossible to capture it all on film. Plus, while I was there I stopped quite a bit to enjoy and admire the art pieces up close and as you can imagine when you're so into something you even forget to bring out the camera to capture it.

I hope you all enjoy this brief tour of Art Basel Miami 2017! I definitely recommend you guys see it for yourselves if you ever get the chance to.
