I've Been Wooed!!!

Shoewooed that is!!! Shoe woo is located in Union Station and is every shoe lover's dream.  From flats to stilletos, they have it.  Okay so, I initially went to shoe woo to purchase a lap top bag.  My mind was focused.  I knew what I wanted.  Well, needless to say, I didn't come out with a lap top bag...they were sold out.  However, I did find the most amazing shoes! Boutique 9's Glamy Pumps!  These shoes are so sexy and classy.  I can think of a number of places to wear these shoes.  When I tried them on, I thought that I was cinderella, it was such a perfect fit. 

For the most part, these heels are comfortable. If you are used to wearing heels daily, these won't be a problem. These lovelies were originally $160.00 and when I looked at the tag, they were $89.99.  However, when I got to the counter, they were $66.00...WHAT A STEAL!

Check out some of Boutique 9's Spring/Summer fashions.  I already see at least 3 pair that I want.  LOL

Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!!!

So I finally decided to dress up and what happens? IT RAINS AS SOON AS I GET OUTSIDE!  By the time I reached my car, I was soaked from head to toe.  What on earth does that mean?  Maybe it means that I need to dress up a little more...LOL

Anywho, I managed to take some pictures with a smile.  This is my rainy day FOTD.  Enjoy!

Sprinkles!!

Sprinkles!  That's it.  That's all that needs to be said.  They have come to the east coast and they are making a statement and a bold one at that.  I could not resist the temptation today.  Sprinkles opened about two weeks ago, and I have successfully drove by the shop at least 3 times...WELL NOT TODAY!  I fell and it was so worth it.  That red velvet cupcake and black and white cupcake was the best that I ever had.  I could not help to laugh as I drove further up M. Street and saw the long line outside of Georgetown Cupcakes.  They better keep it while it last because once people taste Sprinkles cupcakes...the line will dwindle.  Not only does Sprinkles has a bigger cupcake, it is more moist and every bite that you take is full of a rich goodness.  I will be dreaming of this cupcake because I definitely don't need to visit anytime soon.

IN SPITE OF IT ALL...

IN SPITE OF IT ALL...TODAY WAS STILL A GOOD DAY! Today was kind of hectic.  I had to cancel my dentist appointment because one of the ladies took off today and I had to be at the front desk the majority of the day despite the boat load of work that I had to do.  Needless to say, I left work feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.  On the drive home, I thought of all the things that went wrong and then a light bulb went off and I began to be thankful in spite of.  I was thankful that the sun was shining and the weather was beautiful. I began to be thankful for family and thankful that even though I was overwhelmed and frustrated with it, I was even thankful for my job.  So whatever is burdening you down, overwhelming you, or frustrating you...take time out to look at the brighter side of things.

Brow Tutorial

So this is how I do my brows...Let me repeat...THIS IS HOW I DO MY BROWS!!!.  There are tons of ways to perfect your brows.  Feel free to post your way too.

Supplies: Strut Pencil, 2 Angled Brushes, Coastal Scents Brow Tones, Mascara Wand, NW35 Concealer


Brows Before...YES they look WACK! I am trying to let my brows grow back perfectly so I haven't gotten them groomed in a while.  


Take your clean, mascara wand and brush brows.  Then I take my Strut Pencil and trace my bottom lash and top lash.

After that, I fill in the space with my strut pencil.  It should look similar to this.
Then I take my concealer (I used a thicker concealer to make it a little cleaner until I get them groomed) and trace the top and bottom brow.
Most times I get a little closer to the brow but didn't do a real good job this time.  Anyway, get as close to the brow as you can without messing up your creation.  Smooth your concealer and take the mascara wand and brush out the harshness of the pencil and brow.  Finished product should look similar to this:
