Glow Mineral Powder

Instagram is wonderful! Why, do you ask? Because you can find all types of people selling cool products.  I stumbled upon an instagrammer named Claudia who has a new makeup line called GLow. Per Claudia, her makeup is free of toxins, parabens, bismuth, fragrances, and impermissible products. Sounds great right? I have sensitive skin and so am leery about trying different products on my face. Luckily for me I won some samples that Claudia was giving away. She sent me coffee, mocha, and olive. I tried all three. I probably could wear all three except someone asked me if I had a tan when I wore mocha and coffee.  So after trying the sample, my skin didn’t break out and I decided to order.
I ordered olive. She also sent me pink blush as well. Packaging was nice and included a card with a description of her business. The price was also affordable $14.99. Ok, so I was super excited because I LOVE makeup. With this powder, a little goes a long way, I only needed a bit on my brush and it provided a lot of coverage. It was also even coverage, like I didnt have to keep reaplying in different places to even it out. All in all I would say that I’m very happy with this product. FYI I do have combination skin and this did not dry my skin out in the try areas. Again my face has not broken out, it doesn’t seem to clog my pores and is easy to remove. Lastly I got lots of compliments when I wore it. Next I want to try her shimmering highlights, and concealer. I would definately recommend this product.  Here are some pictures of me applying the makeup and after I was finished. Lipstick is Mac honeylove.

Maxi Cardi’s are Everything!

Maxi Cardigans are so in right now and all over the hijabi bloggosphere! Here’s my take on the animal print maxi cardi. I wore this to work the other day. White skinny jeans, white sleeveless top and black peep toe heels. The cardigan is from http://www.louellashop.com

Work Wear series

So this is my work wear blog. Someone asked me about what to wear to work. For me work wear can just be simple pieces jazzed up a bit with accessories, shoes and some nice makeup. You may not want to be too flashy for work. Today I wore black and white. While I absolutely LOVE color, black and white can be very classy as well. Sorry that my pics are somewhat grainy, soon I will be getting a camera, in the meantime, my phone will have to suffice. People always shy away from white pants thinking they will look fat, the key is the RIGHT white pant. Gap makes a great white pant. It isn’t see through, so you don’t have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions and having your underwear peeking through. Also the cut and material is great. Best of all, they come in tall!
Here is a close up of the necklace and blazer. A statement necklace can jazz up any outfit.

Here are 5 outfits that I put together for the week. For me the keys to nice work wear are separates, and accessories. I don’t have to wear suits unless we have a special event, and no jeans either. So for me anything in between will work. Ok so for work, remember the keys:

  • Separates- have some neutrals on hand to pair with patterns, and also bold colors to mix and match.
  • Accessories- a statement necklace, or a fashionable bag, or a fabulous shoe can spruce up an outfit.
Monday- Black and white, added a silver necklace and black and silver bracelet, also the back has silver studding.

Thursday- More color. Looks like Christmas in the pics, The pants are actually more orange/coral than red! If you haven’t noticed already, I like layering. Layering helps hide those areas that have a couple of extra rolls :).

Friday- I loved this scarf in this post because it was a new one I got from Lulubag. A great website where they send the scarf, pins and a cute accessory to match.
