Red Lipstick & Champagne Dreams: November 2012

Share Your Style Party!

I am so excited for this post! I had the pleasure of taking part of the Share Your Style which was hosted by Vintage Wanna Bee and Agape Love Designs. The challenge was to team up with another blogger and to create a handmade hair accessory for her.

Share Your Style

My partner was Michele from Better Organized Living. She sent me a super cute black hairband with a turquoise flower. Turquoise is one my favorite colors! I absolutely loved my hairband. Not to mention the fact that it's awesome to receive pretties in the mail ^_^

Thank you so much Michele for taking the time to create and send me this hair accessory. 
I made her a headband which was wrapped in a cheetah print ribbon and adorned with some handmade flowers. Go check out how cute she looks with the one I sent her here

Fitness: Let's Get Lean

Cardio is very important for those looking to lose weight. But along with cardio is also very important to make sure we are keeping our muscles tight and lean, and to achieve that we have to incorporate strength training. So I found these workouts and thought I'd share it with you ^_^

This is an awesome video to help us tone our arms! As we lose weight it's also important to tone so you don't get all flabby lmao! I'm serious, the last thing you want is to go through all of that hard work of losing weight and not being able to flaunt your hard work because you're not toned. 

I also to share this link to a tumblr. She has listed all o the videos for the Insanity workout videos, which can be viewed online for free!!!!! Just follow this link

Let Your Beauty Shine

You Just can't go wrong with a simple look. I love this look because it took minimal time and it looks pretty good (if I do say so myself) Doing a cat eye is great because you have many option with your lips, but for today I chose to go with nude lips to keep everything down.

Sometimes you have to let your own beauty shine and a little eyeliner, blush and lipstick can do so much and yet it let's you just be you!

I'm really loving this wet n' wild lipstick, and you can also see me wearing it here. It's perfect with any look.

Self Portraits

I see so many blogs with beautiful self portraits and I've always wanted to do them but I just haven't been able to recreate anything cool. I have a really good DSLR camera BUT I barely know how to use it. So I'm challenging myself to learn what my camera can do. 
I've also come to terms that I will need to learn how to use photoshop, and there's no way around that one. I will never get pictures to look beautiful and look "cool" without it. So here's my first try at it. I used photoshop and couldn't tell you how I achieved this because I was just playing around with it. 

So what do you think of these pictures???

Natural Hair Protective Style

As a natural girl I try to take good care of my hair as much as possible. I don't do as much as I could and I'm also not as obsessed with my natural hair as some other natural girls are. I have a VERY low maintenance regime. But living in MN means that at this time of the year it's very important for me to take care of my hair due to the extreme cold weather.
The ends of our hair is the most fragile and when exposed it becomes easier for it to break off, so my go to protective style is a bun! This allows me to keep my ends tucked in and it helps my hair retain its moisture. 
I have been thinking of braiding my hair, but I'm scared of the tension it would put on my edges (I'm so scared of losing my edges!!!)
It's important to note that you should not do your bun very tight. To achieve this style I used one of those hair tights and secured it with bobby pin. I then started to roll and tuck my ends under and secured each rolled section with bobbi pins.
