Restaurant Week

So on Saturday night I decided I wanted to participate in Restaurant Week so I tweeted about going and Kayla responded. After Kayla said yes so did my best friend Briana and it was a date. I picked Level One because I say it on Groupon the day before and it had great reviews. When we finally got there we found out they had stopped Restaurant Week but atmosphere and prices were nice so we stayed, so glad we stayed. Not only was the food amazing but so was the wait staff. Definitely a nice girls night out.

Jewel Mint Rings

I just got my JewelMint package and I was ridiculously excited. For some who might not be aware JewelMint is a website that has an exclusive jewelry collection created by Kate Bosworth and her stylist. After joining the site you take a quick quiz and are given your own "jewelry box" of suggestions. For 29.99 you get 1 credit for a piece of your choice and free shipping!! My first purchase from them was a Christmas gift for my sister. It came in this lovely box:

As an African American woman with natural hair I sometimes struggle for inspirations and hair ideas. I did the big chop in June 2010 and I went through a few hairstyles myself. Here are a few styles I tried:

Clothing Swap Party in DC!

So I just discovered my old co-worker Susie is holding a swap party at her store Black-Eyed Susie. I am a huge fan of clothing swap parties with friends or strangers because its an easy and cheap to update your wardrobe. If your not familiar with a swap party, its basically where a group of people bring fashionable but unwanted clothes and exchange them. The party is Friday January 20th which is plenty of time to get that closet organized for your New Year's Resolution.  

Winter Break Makeup Favorites

This is definitely the longest I've been home since I originally left for school. I had a 31 day vacation from school and being that far from my full collection of makeup was a little sad. I brought WAY to much makeup for my trip but these were definitely my favorites during my warm vacation!
(From left to right: Tarte Amazonian blush, Blushing Bride; MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15, Deep Dark; OPI, Big Apple Red; The Body Shop Body Butter, Satsuma; Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, Chesnut; NARS Bronzing Powder, Casino; MAC Satin Lipstick, Verve.

Fashions fade, style is eternal.

First Post!!!

I have been wanting to start a beauty and fashion blog for a while now. My name is Sylvia, new to the blogging world but a die-hard lover of beauty and fashion.With the help of a special someone (my techy bf) and the NewYear I decided today was the day. I am a new beauty junkie and a long time shopaholic but I am open to trying and experiencing new things. I hope to bring you guys hauls, tutorials, reviews, tips, wish-lists to lust over and a little bit of myself of course. I just couldn't wait to break this baby in!!!!
