Dia & Co ( March) Styling and Try On Video!

Hello My Darling Diva’s!

Welcome back to another day here on the blog! Today I am going to be doing a Styling/ Try on video for the items that I received in my March Dia & Co Box! If you haven’t seen that unboxing them click here! Today is going to be my usual follow up video for all my Dia & Co Unboxings. Here I show you how I would style each piece, how everything looks tried on, and what I decided to keep and send back. So enough of the chit chat, lets get to the video!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so! If these were your pieces, how would you style them?  Comment below and let me know! So lets get into how I would style them, and what stays and goes.


Fashion To Figure Sasha Skirt- $39.90 
Size: 1X
Keeping? : No  

This skirt has a very vintage look to it. So I would pair it with different types of tops in various colors that give it that 1950’s look. Halters, blouses,  and even a crop top would do the trick.  I could stuff so many tops that skirt. I wish it fit me the way I wanted, but I have plenty of skirts like this already in my closet.
Kiyonna Chrystie Knit Wrap Dress – $98.00
Size: 1X
Keeping?: Yes  

This dress was too gorgeous to give up! It fits like a dream, and its the perfect dress for any event. I plan on styling this dress with colorful accessories. Since this is a plain black dress, adding some color through accessories will make this outfit come alive. 
Modamix 3/4 Sleeve Blouse- $79.00 
Size: 16
Keeping?: No   
This top is perfect for pretty much anything! I wish it fit me better so that I could have kept it. This top can be paired with anytype of skirt, jean, or pants. This basic black top is perfect because it can pretty much go with anything.

Hayden Nadine Tunic Top- $48.00
Size: XL
Keeping?: No
 This top actually surprised me. I thought I wasn’t going to like it, but I actually did. Too bad it didn’t fit. But I’m pretty sure  I can find something similar. This top can go great with jeans or jean shorts. I would also rock this as a cover up for my bathing suit. Tunics are great for warmer weather, so I will definitely be finding another one that fits. 
Kaitlin Necklace- $36.00 

This necklace is not my style, but you could definitely pair it with alot of things. You can pair it with jeans and a t-shirt, a cute dress, and so much more.

Welcome back to another week here on the blog! I am kicking things off this week by showing you what’s new in my makeup box! This is all just a fancy title for a makeup haul. I went a little crazy with shopping for makeup this past week, so I decided to share my crazy with you and show you what I got. This is a pretty long video, so grab a snack and get ready!

Be sure to click the title of each item to take you to a link to where you can buy it online.


New Items mentioned in my video 
Light to Medium
I raved about this new product in my latest video, and so I ended up going back and getting the Light to medium palette. The Medium to Dark palette that I already have is a bit too dark, so I will save that for when my tan comes in.

My Fave pair of lashes to wear! 
These are so hard to find! But I am determined to have them all! 
 I only have the powder brush, small concealer brush, foundation brush, and the large eyeshadow brush. 
The best foundation that I have ever tried! 
I am experimenting with new highlight colors. I purchased cool tan, nude, yellow corrector, and green corrector. I mentioned that I got the idea to use yellow corrector from one of my fave YouTubers ElinPapiforBaby. You can click here to check out her channel. 
Broadway Strip Lash Glue 
A mistake purchase but yall know I’m not going to waste anything. 
Nivea Face Cream 
The  only moisturizer that I use on my face. I just does wonders for my skin. I couldn’t find a direct link online, but you can purchase this in your local drugstore or Walmart/target
Coconut Oil 
Any brand will do the trick. You can google “Uses for coconut Oil” and I swear your mind will be blown. 

This target brand scrub has me obsessed! It makes my skin feel so clean!  
I love these liners because you can use them for multiple things for you makeup look.
THIS PRODUCT IS SENT FROM GOD! I don’t know what took me so long to buy this product, but I’m glad I finally got it! You have to try it for yourself to understand how amazing this product is! I used the coupon code MORE1 to get %15 percent off my order. 
Because a girl can never have too many of these wonderful sponges. One day I will get around to buying an actual beauty blender sponge. But today is not that day.
This was the free gift that I received with my order.
So excited to finally get some color back into my makeup box! I can’t wait to play in these colors!

(I Swatched the first row)

 The foiled eyes trend is very hot right now, and I am glad I get to participate! These 28 shades are so beautif, and that foiled finish is to die for. 

( I swatched the first row)

My Fashion Must Have’s

Hello, All My Darling Diva’s!

Welcome back to the blog! I am here today giving you my second blogpost for the week! See I told you guys I would be on time with the post this week! Today we are talking about my fashion must have’s! Do you have some pieces in your closet that you just can’t live without? No matter what happens you always have to replace it? Well, today were are going to talk about those must have pieces for me! Your fashion must have’s helps describe your personal style, so hopefully you guys get some insight on what my style is all about through my must have’s. So let’s get to the video!

Did you guys enjoy the video? I hope so! As I said in the video what you wear describes your personality and my personality definitely shows by what I wear. What is your personal style and your fashion must haves? Leave them below in the comments and share! Let’s get into all the info and pics for my must haves.

#1. Comfortable Shoes
Comfort is definitely a big part of my style. If  I am not comfortable, then I am not happy. My shoes not only have to fly, but they have to be comfortable. Lately, I have been rocking a lot of sneakers and right now my fave pair are from JustFab. They are shown in this OOTD pic that is posted below. They are sooo comfortable and it feels like I’m walking on air! If you have a bigger shoe size like me (11) and need some tips on buying shoes, then click here to check out my shoe buying guide. 

#2 A Pair of Good Fitting Denim
I cant stress enough how important jeans are to me! I pretty much cant live without my jeans! They are very comfortable, and I honestly feel like my curves are to die for when I am rocking a pair of jeans. The best pair of jeans that I own are from Torrid, and I highly recommend that everyone else goes there and get a pair! They fit true to size, and are a dream when you slip them on! If you’re having a bit of trouble with finding the perfect pair of jeans, then click here to check out my denim buying guide. 
#3 Crop Top 
I would never have thought in a million years that a crop top would be a must have for me! I honestly fall more in love with myself and my body every day, and now I can’t live without a good crop top! I feel so empowered, and bold when I wear it and I love that feeling! A couple of years ago I did a post on how to rock a crop top. You can check that out here  if you need a little confidence boost with rocking a crop top.
#4 Light Jackets
A light jacket is a must have for a person like me who is always cold! I often need a jacket to keep me warm, but a good jacket also brings together a look sometimes for me. Whenever I feel like my outfit is incomplete I add a jacket and it always works! I define a light jacket as a jean jacket, motorcycle jacket, Letterman jacket, and sometimes cardigans and blazers. You can click here for my Blazer Galore post which discuss my obsession with blazers. 
#5 Thick Belt 
Belts for me are a saving grace when it comes to some of my outfits. They pull my shape in and make my curves look even better than before.  I also like to use belts for layering outfits and bring a touch of something to my look. You can click here for a Layering Lesson.
 #6 Good Foundation
Nothing in life is great without a good foundation, That also applies for fashion. If your bra and shapewear isn’t on point, then your outfit can be an epic fail. A good fitting bra and shapewear are honestly my best friend especially when I am wearing something tight and close to my body. You can click here to check out my post all about shapewear. 
#7 Skater Everything
Skater Skirts/Dresses are BAE for me! They flatter my shape, and they are so versatile! I have so many skater dresses and skirts in my life that it’s crazy! I feel like anybody can pull off a skater dress/skirt and I love that. 
#8 Animal Print Galore
Cheetah Print is honestly my life. I am obsessed with it, and I pretty much have everything in my room decked out in cheetah print. Anybody who knows me knows that my love for cheetah is sickening! But I don’t care, I love animal print! I could wear it all day for the rest of my life if I could! 
#9 Scarf
I can’t stress enough how scarves are a must for me. I use them mostly for my turbans. I love a good turban especially on a day where I am in a rush or if there is terrible weather happening.  You can click here to check out my video on how to do many different turban styles.
#10 Wildcard
And last but certainly not least we have my wildcard item. A wildcard item is something that you bring out when it’s time for you to be the center of attention. I have many wildcard items, but my favorite has to be my look from my birthday. I mixed all my favorite fashion elements in one piece, and I loved my look. You can click here to check out my GRWM bday edition!

Ruby Kisses has been one of my favorite BBS store makeup brands for a long time! I love how there products can last you for a long time!
