Tips on What to Wear for Date Night

Sunday, December 14, 2014




Hey Professionistas! Recently my husband and I went on a double date with friends to Chima Brazilian Steakhouse and it was fantastic!   Chima's is definitely pricey but well worth it.  What separates this steakhouse from the rest for us is that the sides are just as good as all of the meat selections. So if you have a special night coming up and you want a place to celebrate then come try this great restaurant near Tyson's Corner, VA.  If you are fretting about what to wear on this hot date then here are a few tips to remember:
  • Color Me Beautiful: Don't be afraid to go for a sexy smoldering eye. It is easy to do, goes great with a nude lip and looks great in dim lighting. Also if you will be eating so a nude lip might be exactly what you need. The last this you want to do is reapply your lipstick color every few minutes. If you don't have a nude lip and you are looking for the right color, then look here.
  • Be Seen- Pull out your figure flattering dresses and show you beautiful curves. Grab the boldest color in your closet and dare people not to notice you on this special night. Not ready for a lot of color then grab a blinged out clutch and draw some attention. 
  • Layer on the Sexy- Grab a coat, blazer or sweater to stay warm as many of the date night places may be cold however be weary of covering up too much. You don't want too bundled up during dinner.
  • Soft to the touch- Don't be afraid to layer, like in this weeks style challenge, with textures like leather or cashmere. Touch can be a powerful tool so make sure  you are using it to your advantage.
What are your go to looks for date night?

SWWC Style Challenge Week 8: Draw Attention to Your Face

Thursday, November 20, 2014


People often comment of the glowing skin and good completion and I have to laugh just a bit because they think it is me but it is really just my Mary Kay.  For years, I did not have great skin or a good completion but thankfully when I switched over to Mary Kay skin care and make-up products, it was the welcome break my skin needed.  I begin to quickly feel and see a big difference.  The skin care line I use everyday is the time wise miracle set. I totally love it.  The time wise set really started evening out my skin and I had far less break outs. The glow that you see on my head shots comes from my time wise luminous-wear foundation.  So weather you are posing for Facebook or Vogue, you want your skin to look its best so you have to treat it right.You use a good product consistently  Once you have your skin looking the way you want to, you will want to show it off so add a scarf to your look and the scarf will naturally draw attention to your face and your wonderfully glowing skin.
