Kim Kardashian Gone Goth!

Kim Kardashian is known for her smokey eye's and neutral lips. Well, check her out in Goth inspired make-up!............So Avant-Garde! Wanna learn how to recreate this look? Watch one of my favorite make-up gurus recreate and teach you step by step.

 Would you rock the dark Lips?/
How about the "no eyebrows" trend?/

Personally, I'm intrigued by the dark lips..Not sure if I could pull it off being that my make up routine is always very natural and I stick to a lot of neutral colors. If I'm doing a night out, I'll venture out to a little bit of eye shadow in colors other then browns and nudes. My favorite is to do eyeliner in a fun color for the lower lash line (green, purple, blue)...but that's as bold as I go! 

What make-up trends do you enjoy on yourself?

Love always, Belkis <3

So today at work I borrowed a managers Vogue August Issue...and I didn't want to go back to work! Fabulous Pics, Fashion and Spreads! New looks and trends for fall of course! I got so excited that I drove straight to Barnes and Nobles after work for my own copy. Then I stopped at Ulta and found some great deals on Ulta brand cosmetics! Everything I picked out was only $2. 

My Fab Purchases of the day! (Can you believe I only paid $20 for all this)

I am the biggest bargain shopper you will ever meet! It's not that I'm cheap, cause if I "have to have it" I will pay what ever for it, but I HATE to pay full price for stuff. Well, i wouldn't say hate, but I love a good deal a lot more! And Yes, some staples in your wardrobe are worth investing in because you can have them for years to come. Working in retail, I try to stay away from the stores on my brake, but once in a while I will venture out. Sometimes I make it back to work empty handed but sometimes I don't. Like today, and usually I find a deal I couldn't pass by. Don't you hate when you see a sale and everything you want isn't available in your size? Urrrrrggggg! Well, today wasnt one of those days...check out the deals I found in J.Crew!

Thread Wrapped Leather Bracelet: $3.49 (Reg $19.99)
Bug-Star-Stud Pins: $3.49 (Reg$20)

Stretch "Blush Pink" Skinny Pant: $6.99 (Reg $85)

Soooo, I gots new pants, pins and a bracelet for less than $16! Everything was on its second mark down and then an additional 30% off. Now when do you go to J.Crew and walk out with multiple items for less then $20?? TODAY! If your a J.crew fan, like me, check out there sale before its over!

Your Bargain Shopper, Belkis <3

Just a few COOL moments captured in photo form. Thought I'd share some of the things and people who are truly important in my life! Live everyday as if it were your last and tell the people in your life how much you love them NOW, because tomorrow is not promised. SMILE as much as possible, and DON'T worry about the things that don't deserve your energy. GOD is GOOD, and I thank him everyday!

PEACE & LOVE,  Belkis
