DIY: Name Bracelets

Lana Layne:

I love accessories, especially arm candy bracelets.

There are so many inexpensive places to buy bracelets, but creating your own sets you apart from the rest and boost your style icon points closer to the top of fashionista list.

Found this amazing DIY on Born in ’82 and had to try it out.


I used 20mm Toggle clasps, 6mm jump rings, 0.51mm wire, and just regular gold chain. I probably should’ve gotten a thicker wire, but thinner wire is easier to bend around if your pliers are ehh (I probably should get new pliers too…). Here’s some pictures. Have fun DIYing!

Time to update your wardrobe. My favorite way to update my wardrobe is picking a few celebrity inspirations . I take my favorite celebrity looks, such as this week style inspiration Nicole Richie and buy off label look-a-likes.

Nicole Richie has made her mark as a style inspiration over the years and I love how she always looks stylish and comfortable. The style look for less

  • Always shop with an objective. Go in with the idea of the essential pieces to re-create your celebrity style inspiration’s look. ( If you don’t you will spend more dollars on things that you don’t need…defeats the purpose of savings.
  • Have the picture on your phone or in hand to remind you
  • Make sure the clothes fit correctly. Just because it ‘s cheap doesn’t mean it is ok to buy, trust me it will sit in your closet for the next 3 seasons.
  • Be creative

So our summer has come to an end. Don’t let that discourage you, because Fall Fashion is here and is packed full of amazing trends! Keep a look out for your style inspiration and re-create their look like I just did from Nicole Richie’s latest red carpet look.

Amazing Style Virtual Make Over Application

Lana Layne:

Fall Make Up Trend DIY Ombre Lips

Fall Make Up Trend DIY Ombre Lips Found a great new app to give you make over inspiration before committing.

I am excited to try this app out, the worst way to waste money is go full blast with a make over and decide it isn’t the right style for you.

Try it out and tell me what you think?

Yahoo’s article on Worst Beauty Blunders somewhat brought me to this site or app. While I sat next to my little one – both of us are being lazy bums- I browsed further and thought, hey, let’s try this app, and see.

If you want something to cheer yourself up, then a makeover might just do it for ya. Without having to shed some cash, of course. If you have a few minutes to spare, then get on this app! It’s actually quite fun!

Tip: Best pic to use is a close up pic or one that’s facing the camera, otherwise, you’ll have to fiddle more if the photo is angled a certain way.

I wished I found this app a lot sooner since this gives me a very good idea of what foundation (shade) I could use! Do’h! Would have saved me some cashhh. *sigh.

Obviously, this would all…

Ombre Lips A fall make up trend update you can DIY


Make-up artist backstage at the Lee Matthews s...

Looking for a fun way to update your makeup for fall with out spending a buck?

Ombre Lips

The latest Fall Makeup Trend that  I have been seeing everywhere and love. It’s is so easy you can diy and update your look with make up products you already own.

Being a make up artist in the industry, I had to learn how to be creative and resourceful when I had limited products to work with.

Don’t limit yourself, try new ways to use your eyeshadow, lipsticks, blushes, etc to create new looks

Here is a quick How to tutorial in creating the perfect Ombre Lip

Lipstick (product)

Products you will need:

  • Various shades of Lipstick or your favorite one
  • blushes or eyeshadows
  • neutral lipliner
  • A flat stiff eyeshadow blush or if you like a hands on approach your fingers.
  • A bit of imagination

Step 1: Line your lips with a natural lipliner. This will give you a crisp clean lip and also keep your lipstick from moving.


Step 2: Use Your Favorite Lipstick or a Lipstick that you want to update that’s been sitting in your drawer and apply to your lips. Use a lip brush for more precision if you can.


Step 3: Choose a blush color or eyeshadow color that is in the same color family as the lipstick. Example if you are using a red lipstick choose a pink blush or eyeshadow. If you want more drama find a gold shimmer eyeshadow.

Eye shadow

Step 4: Using the flat stiff eyeshadow or your index finger and pat the eyeshadow or blush right in the center of your pout. This will give your lips the ombre affect and also make your lips look fuller because of the color contrast.

Fall Fashion Updates for the Office for under $100

You can easily update your wardrobe for the office with the latest Fall  trends and still stay with in your budget.  One of my previous jobs  required me to stay “in trend.” At first I’ll admit, I took that requirement to the fullest extent. A few short hours and about 5 shopping bags  deep, I realized I spent more on my wardrobe than I would actually make for the next month and a half.

That brief moment of shopping insanity lead me to re-think how to effectively update my wardrobe and still have money left over to survive. With practice, I learned that buying a few essential  pieces was enough to update my wardrobe for work. With a bit of thought and creativity, I always felt like the “Top Dog” at work and felt great because I knew I had money to spare.

Here are a few Fall Trends that you’ll see gracing the office:

  • Scarf Print Blouse or Pants. Pair them with neutral solids for a little bit of edge for the office Scarf Print Blouse

    Pair a Scarf Print Blouse with Neutral Color Solid Tailored Pants for a Touch of Edge

  • Penny Loafers for Ultimate comfort for a long days work

  • Tailored Leather Skirts and Shorts

My favorite way to update my fall fashion for the the office, is to get creative. Don’t be afraid to mix and match what you already have in your closet with a few new essential pieces from fall fashion trends you find in magazines. Remember being fashionable is not representing every trend possible, don’t go on trend over kill. Classics with a few key in trend pieces is a sure fire way to fashion success. Don’t let the trends work you or your wallet. Tailor trends to fit your personal style and comfort.
