And I’m off! Happy Thursday to you all. This morning I set out to Los Angeles. If you follow me on my twitter or sports fan page you all know I have a track meet this weekend. I’m excited to be back in LA and to race. It’s a plus I get to see my beautiful God Son and cousin as well.

I wanted to show you some of my essentials that I pack when I travel on the weekends. A lot of this is great if you are flying since I always just have a carry on. Also if you want to see how I spend my weekends when I’m at competitions please subscribe to my YouTube Vlog Channel! This YouTube is running,fitness, and lifestyle related. You get to see my life a little; a total behind the scenes when it comes to me. I’m not all fashion, designing, and beauty products.

I know that I shouldn’t be thinking about November just yet, but when I saw the news this past weekend about the Alexander Wang collection coming to H&M, I wanted to jump in a DeLorean and gun it to 88mph. November 6th I will be in line at H&M ready to stock my closet with what will be classic pieces of clothing. Who else is excited about this collaboration? It can’t be just me.

Drooling Over

I have been drooling over a couple things for a while now. Some I need to add to my collections and some that I’ve seen and just can’t take my eyes off of. What have you been obsessed with lately?

Also I’ve been super on the go and my post have dwindled. I’m sorry for that and have some things on my to do list for you all. Have a great week!

My Eyebrow Essentials

Tags

, , ,

Eyebrows are like a frame to a picture. Well at least to me they are. A sculpted brow can change your whole face. I was never big on filling in my brows until I started noticing how thin and wimpy my brows looked in pictures. I wanted full brows like all the celebrity’s. It took me a while to find the perfect shape for my brow and still sometimes I get it wrong. So don’t worry if your brow shape changes a couple times until you find the perfect fit. Also brows are not twins, they are sisters. It’s okay if they are not perfectly identical.

March Craze 2014

Tags

And March is gone! I swear I don’t know where this year is going. But with that being said, yet again, I’m so excited it’s spring and competition season for me. During the next couple months I will be the most active I’ll be all year. Traveling for meets, and doing more home decor projects will take over my life, but I’m not complaining. Sun, beaches, family and DIY’ers are some of the things to look forward to on my blog in the coming months. This past month has kicked off the spring and summer seasons with a bang. Let’s talk about what people were crazy over in March.

Beauty:
The biggest beauty product I saw a lot of people talking about has to be from First Aid Beauty. Bloggers have been going skincare crazy lately, but this company and their products have been in just about everyone’s routine. The one that catches my eye and I’m excited to go pick up is the most raved about face mask. This First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay is a peel away mask, and claims to detoxify, reduce pores and control oil! Hey I’m sold with just the peel away aspect, but the controlling oil production is the cherry on top. I’m all for having a skincare routine that isn’t messy, and the peel away mask is right up my alley.

Fashion:
There have been two trends and major fashion must haves established this past March. One that I’ve always been skeptical about, and the other that makes me question if I was put into a fashion time machine. The matching separates and Birkenstock trend were all the rave. The matching separates trend has always had me on the fence, but this this past month I’ve seen it a ton, and it’s actually really cute. Floral, geometric, and tribal print separates are to die for and definitely now on my spring/summer must have’s list. Now for the Birkenstock trend, well I can say this one still has yet to pull me in. With it being such a craze now, look forward to seeing it a lot more in the summer as well.

My Favorites:
March issue of Vogue was hands down my favorite this past month. Not only did I get a bunch of new ideas for upcoming post but I also fell in love with Rihanna all over again. Her article showed me a side I have yet to see from her. Down to earth, easy going, and just the type of girl you want to be friends with. Yes we all know her for her recent escapades on Instagram, but in the March issue you get to see another side. A fashion icon is the recent new title graced on the Barbados island girl. If you can still find the issue in your area defintely pick it up and read the article.

If you missed any of my outfit post last month go check them out. I loved getting to snap pictures for you all this past month, as well as getting to show off the fabulous¬†Warby Parker¬†glasses that I tried out. All the glasses were picked out by me and I had them for 5 whole days. Warby Parker let’s everyone do this in their Home Try-On Program. I loved them so much I actually am ordering 2 of them soon. I will be writing a full review on the glasses and the Home Try-On Program soon, so be on the look out.

Now you may be asking “Nikki, what about your beauty favorites in March?”¬†Oh don’t worry. I had my goings with my makeup stash and fell back in love with doing my eyebrows. Now eyebrows can be a tricky thing to figure out, and I have seen my share of lost battles, but this past month I figured I would play around and see what shape I finally wanted to stick to. It helped that I had my Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil to guide me along the way. I love this eyebrow pencil, it’s great for a perfect brow look or even a quick fill in. Oh and it’s drugstore! How perfect for the pocket.
