Top 12 2014 Moments of NoMinusPlus



HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE DARLING DIVAS!!!!
It’s just so crazy to me that tomorrow is going to be the first day of 2015! I feel like we were just bringing in 2014 yesterday, and now today is the last day! Crazy how time flies right? All of my favorite bloggers always do a recap of what happened on their blog for the year, and I also like to do the same. It’s always great to look back and see what happened here on the blog. Now I was going  to limit it to just fashion ( which I have done the past 2 years), but this year had soo many great moments that I couldn’t just file it under fashion. I decided to countdown my favorite moments/blogpost of 2014! If you want to check out the blog-post, just click on the title of the blog above the pic. So enough of my blabbering, lets get started!

This outfit made the list because it was truly one of THE most comfortable outfits I wore this year! Styling colored jeans can be kind of tricky, but I really enjoyed this look!

Now if you know me at all then you know that cheetah is basically my fave color! This moment was when I fell in love with MAC’s Heroine which is honestly THE BEST LIPSTICK ON THE PLANET! And also this jacket is my soul-mate, so for those two reasons this outfit made the cut.
The Maxi Skirt is the holy grail of the summer, and this outfit was so cute and casual. It mixed colors and prints that I didn’t even think would go together.
Can we please have a moment of silence for this dress,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Ok moment over. This dress is hands down the most FAB dress ever! I absolutely love this dress. and when I die I will be buried in it! The color, the sleeves, just everything about this dress is amazing!
Now my obsession for lipstick this year went extremely overboard! The amount of lipsticks in various colors that I have right now is truly insane! I really enjoyed making this video because I felt that it was the perfect guide for those wanting to try lipstick colors a try. Still a very relevant video, so check it out if your looking to take your lipstick obsession to a new level.
This post was VERY popular this year, and I def understand why it was! Plus Size Pageants? Um yes sign me up! It was an honor to interview my friend Jeanel for this blogpost. She is truly such a warm spirited person, and I was so excited that I personally knew a pageant queen! I think its so powerful that plus size women are getting more platforms to showcase their beauty and talent, and it excites me to think what other opportunities will be coming our way in the future.
Dying my hair blue was the best mistake that I have ever done! It felt so awesome to have blue hair, and I def see myself doing it again. This color experiment has sparked my curiosity in coloring my hair all types of funky colors, so don’t be surprised at what color my hair will be in 2015. 
5.Holiday Bombshell Series
Although this series was not completed ( Will explain in a video later this week) I still had alot of fun with what I produced. Makeup has always been a passion of mine, and it was really great to focus on that for awhile. I def learned my lesson though. I am a Jill of all trades for a reason. I can never just focus on one thing.
4. The Seven Deadly Sins Series
 This by far was the most creative thing that I have ever done. It felt so freeing creating 6 different personalities that surrounded each sin. This was also my first ever monthly series that I did, and I’m already brainstorming what series to do next for new year. Hopefully this time I actually finish one (lol) 
One of my biggest accomplishments this year was opening up a store for the blog. I was really excited about it, and I honestly still am. The store will be relaunching early spring 2015 and I hope that with the changes that I make, the store can function a bit better.  Plus who doesn’t love colored shorts?
It amazes me everyday that I have had this blog for 4 years! This blog is the foundation of making my dreams come true, and I am so honored that you all have decided to take this journey with me. I also released my first ever merchandise which is still available at www.styledbynominusplus.bigcartel.com if your interested in purchasing. 
1. Everybody Has a Beachbody
This blogpost broke the internet before Kim Kardashian! Ok so maybe it didn’t, but this blogpsot was a very popular, and dammit I’m really proud of this post! I am all for body positivity, and being comfortable in your own skin. This blogpsot was just to celebrate curves, and inspire curvy women to wear whatever the hell they want on the beach! I’m glad you all enjoyed my half-nakedness, and I will be sure to follow up with another swimsuit post in 2015!

So ladies that is the 12 Top Moments of 2014! I hope you have enjoyed walking down memory lane with me. This blog has truly developed this year, and I am so excited to see what next year will bring! Later this week I will be introducing you to some new things happening in 2015 on the blog, and I hope you will be down for the ride!
I hope you darling divas have a safe and fun New Years Eve/Day and I will see you in 2015!

Skincare Routine

Hello all my darling divas! 
I know it has been a couple of weeks since I came to you with a blog post! I was sick for a week and then decided to take a week off just to relax. But now I’m back and I have alot in store for you all! 
So today we are discussing skin. Now I know this is not a topic that I usually don’t discuss, but a proper skincare routine is the foundation for anything makeup related. So enjoy the video and meet me below for more details and info. 
 

So here is a list of the products used in this video. All the products can be found at your local drugstore, target, or walmart. The only product you will not find is the Herban clay bar, but I will show you where you can purchase it.

Loreal Paris Eye Makeup Remover 
I love using this product because it removes all my makeup without any hassle. I also have a D.I.Y. tutorial on how to make your own makeup wipes. Click here to check that out.
St Ives Apricot Scrub
 This is honestly one of my fave products! It exfoliates and cleanses my skin very well. I also love that this product is very affordable. I have been using it since high school, and it hasn’t failed me yet!

Herban Clay Bar (Can be purchased here )
This product was a gift and I really have fallen in love with it. Its a great product to follow up with after I’m done with my apricot scrub. Its very cleansing and dries my skin out if I use it every night, so I only opt to use this product once a week. 
Dollar General Astringent (But astringent can be brought at any of the stores mentioned above)
Astringent is honestly my BEST FRIEND! I use this faithfully every single day. Its great as a makeup remover as well. My astringent product changes according to whats available at the time. In the video I used this astringent from dollar general, but very often I normally use sea breeze or Neutrogena deep cleansing astringent. Either way I always make sure that astringent is in my possession.
 Shea Moisture Problem Skin Toner 
I just started using this product earlier this summer and I have to say it has been doing wonders for my skin. It has been helping me control my blemishes and has been evening my skin tone. Its made with African black soap and tea tree oil which are two products that are really great for your skin.
Dual Treatment Moisturizer( Can only be purchased at Target)
This product has been a staple in my skincare routine for the past 5 years and I’m never letting it go!!! It keeps my skin feeling very moisturized and a little goes a long way! Each bottle takes me forever to complete and I love that because that means I save even more money!
Ladies all the products above are under $20! Awesome products at a super affordable price. You can never go wrong with that combo! I hope that this video was really informative and has helped you! Be prepared for more great blog-posts coming your way! Feel free to follow me on any of my social networking sites. They are all linked above. Until next time love you lots like tator tots, and see you soon!
