As promised here is my first makeup look from the Zodiac Earth Collection. I took photos throughout the day to show the process of me applying my makeup, showing different shots and sides of my look. Also with different locations and lighting. I used everything in the picture above except the teal sparkle. And the Earth glitter lip gloss I used today is the shade, Capricorn.
Later during the day I tried the Capricorn gloss as a lip topper of my matte lipstick, “Clink” by Sugarpill Cosmetics, which you can see in the second photo above and it worked well and gave a new dimension to my lips.
This look stayed on with my setting spray lasted all day. I definitely liked the look I created and look forward to playing with different makeup looks. I definitely recommend this bundle and collection and I think all the other zodiac element sign bundles look beautiful as well.
Stay tuned for me wearing a full look from this collection but I was so excited to get this from Wet n’ Wild that I wanted to do a SHOW & TELL video and post this right away. I’m a Taurus which is an Earth sign so I wanted the exclusive Zodiac Earth Collection. This collection includes six Earth eyeshadows in one compact, the Earth mega-glo highlighter bar, and three Earth sign lip glosses.
I’m definitely not a shimmery eye-shadow girl by any means but when I swatched these colors, they were so stunning with one swipe. I thought these shadows would be perfect for summer when I don’t feel like doing a full face of makeup or if it’s too hot for a heavy matte look, for a special occasion, anything. I’ll say it again, when I swatched the colors with one swipe, they all came out stunning.
I’ve heard so many good things about this brand’s highlighters but the only one that I’ve tried and loved was the Goth-O-Graphic skull highlighter so I’m very excited to try the earth highlighter bar. The color looks beautiful and also perfect for summer. I also love the Zodiac Sign imprinted stamps on this bar. So very cute!
The last three pieces of the Wet n’ Wild Zodiac Earth Collection are the three earth sign lip glosses, Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo. I tried swatching them but because these are lip glosses they didn’t show up well on my hand. But on the lips, they are beautiful. These will be perfect on days that I’m not wearing a lot of makeup or if it’s too hot for matte lipstick, if is even possible, or even as lip toppers of matte lipstick.
The last thing that I wanted to show is from the main ZODIAC COLLECTION and it’s the loose highlighting powder. I’ve never tried loose highlighter before so I’m very curious to try this out.
I can’t wait to try out all these products. I think I will make some beautiful retro glam and summer looks with this collection. Below is my show and tell video from my youtube channel so make sure to check it out to see the makeup up close and subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven’t already. And also stay tuned to see me with a full makeup look only using products from this collection.
Her name was Gabrielle, her nickname was Mademoiselle but she will always be known as CoCo. By transforming practically into an aesthetic, she set women free and invented a style that both utterly personal and universally recognized.
“Elegance means being beautiful both on the inside and outside.“
Mademoiselle Chanel was first inspired to create a shoulder bag, thus freeing women’s hands and radically changing their allure. (That idea works perfect on me with my hand bag collection.)
Like I said above, I love handbags, not just Chanel but many brands and styles. You’ve seen my purse collection.
“With it’s quilted effect which was inspired by stable boy jackets, ely lids through the bag so the chain strap can pass and move., golden turn lock closer, the logo, double CC, top-stitched in to the lining, and perfect proportions, the CHANEL BAG WAS DESTINED TO BECOME A LEGEND.“
I thought this was so amazing Coco’s inspiration for creating her very first Chanel bag. I’ve always grown up and loved fashion no matter what style or fashion I was wearing and I always admired the fashion.
Also besides my Chanel bags, I have other Coco Chanel art work that I treasure.
The first piece I want to show is my Vinyl Black Lips Surfer Girl. Black shiny lips and Kate Moss’s lips.
I also have original early sketches and art work done by CoCo and Chanel.
Hope you enjoy and definitely research into her, her fashion life, and her real life.
Ok so I know it’s been a few weeks since I posted my last 50 dollars or less fashion, with full outfits, etc., but there is a reason why. Last week I tried to do this article at TJ MAXX, since Crossroads was my last post, and it was a disaster. I usually go there for home goods instead of clothes and even though I went right when they opened on a week day first thing in the morning and it was already jam packed. I couldn’t even look through the clothes cause it was chaos. And in the home goods department, people were knocking down and breaking plates. It got so bad I started sweating with a panic attack and had to leave.
A few days later, I stopped at Kohl’s which I love but last time I didn’t find anything I liked but I decided to give that same location another shot and I’m so glad I did cause I scored this time!!!!!
I love jumpsuits and pantsuits as a lot of you know and the moment I walked into the shop, I spotted a gorgeous navy blue pantsuit with vibrant flowers on it. It was originally 40 dollars but it was on sale for 25 dollars which was amazing. The next thing I saw were supported bralettes which were adorable. They were marked down to 9 dollars and then got an extra discount to bring it to 5 dollars. I bought this bright yellow mustard one to go with my pantsuit which you’ll see in the closeup. By the way, I plan on going back to get more bralettes in every color. You can wear them as crop tops also.
The last thing I fell in love with was from my favorite brand there, Rock Rebel. It’s a soft black top with criss cross sleeves, which I always love a peek a boo moment, with red roses on it. It’s so cute. The top was originally 25 dollars but was marked down to 15 dollars. I couldn’t believe my scores. My total purchase for three things was $45.00 including tax. I love it!
As far as big variety stores are concerned, definitely are Kohl’s and Target are my favorite.
Hope you enjoyed this third edition of 50 dollar fashion or less. Stay tuned to the next one AND if YOU have suggestions of shops you want me to check out, please definitely leave you SUGGESTIONS in my COMMENTS section.
This is my latest stunning dress that was gifted to me by someone close, from Sonja Morgan of New York. I’ve already worn this dress in several shoots and can’t wait to wear it out on s night on the town. It is so elegant and is perfect for every occasion, even grocery shopping for me, hehe seriously.
Here are some of my fabulous photos in this fabulous dress! Please enjoy and leave your comments.

My Pinup theme for my summer issues will be queen of the mermaids. Make sure to subscribe to me if you haven’t already and leave your likes and comments. Thank you everyone and stay tuned for some amazing summer shoots.
I’ve decided to start going to shops, mostly local shops in my area to find outfits the are stylish and fashionable for fifty dollars and under. My husband actually came up with this idea which I thought was so cute and even though many others have done similar things, I plan on putting my vintage and rock spin onto it.
I haven’t decided yet it I’m going to do this every week or every two weeks but I think this will be fun. My goal is to find full or mostly full outfits for under fifty dollars to show as inspiration to everyone who feels that they have to spend loads of money to be able to showcase their fashion and unique style. Every thing I show off here is something that is my style and/or that I would wear.
I was going to one of my favorite local vintage shops but they were closed for the day. Instead I started with Target. I know Target isn’t a unique store but I thought it would be cool to include Target in my list of fifty dollar fashion since Target is an extremely popular chain that everyone has access to in their area.
The first thing that my eyes immediately went to was a pair of these cheetah print jeans. Animal print and me? Duh! Haha They cost $28.00.
The next thing I spotted was a super cute black and red (my favorite color combo) Game of Thrones “Where are My Dragons” top for $14.00. I love that show and the “Mother of Dragons” is probably my favorite character. The next item I spotted was in the jewelry section which was near where I found both the pants and top. The next item I looked for was a cute pair of shoes to complete this look. To be perfectly honest, I really didn’t see anything that I would wear or that would go with this outfit but they did have a lot of styles that you might like to try in your Target locations so please don’t be discouraged that I didn’t find anything in the store location I went to. A lot of them were on sale as well. Instead I went to the jewelry section which was near where I found the pants and top. There I found this punk rock red “Rocky Horror” style lips necklace. It only was $6.00 so I had to get it.
After the items I found, my total plus tax was literally $50.00 so it was perfect.
I hope you all liked what I chose and also the start of something new that I’m going to be doing for Bombshell.
