Losing it for Solange (New Music Video)

I am not ashamed to say that I jumped on the Solange Knowles bandwagon a little late. A few years ago, my friend Asia was doing my hair and we were talking about King Bey's (Beyonce) vocals. Asia shared her opinion that Solange's music is better than Beyonce's music. I am a HUGE Beyonce fan and disagreed immediately. I've never really heard any of Solange's music before but I knew she was not as popular as Beyonce. Asia suggested I listen to Solange's Sol-angel and the Hadley St. Dreams album.  I just knew Asia was talking crazy and ignored her suggestion. 

A few months later, someone else mentioned how much they loved Solange's Sol-angel and the Hadley St. Dreams album. It reminded me of the discussion I had with Asia and my curiosity grew.I finally gave in and purchased Solange's album on iTunes. I instantly fell in LOVE with her album after listening to it once.

Made-up or Natural: Men don’t know what they want

*This blog post was originally posted on my tumblr, loveresee.tumblr.com on July 12, 2011. A recent twitter comment about women, makeup, and never finding a man reminded me of this post I wrote. Enjoy!
I've heard men say they prefer a girl that does not wear makeup. These men believe a natural face is much prettier than a made-up face. They feel the makeup does not show the real person and it is all an “illusion”.
What is odd about this situation is that men stare at their televisions, magazines, and favorite internet sites drooling over celebrity women and guess what……THESE CELEBS HAVE CAKED ON HEAVY MAKEUP!

This to That: Earring to a Necklace (DIY)

When I was in the 9th or 10th grade my mother bought me gold name earrings. I was living in Providence, RI at the time and going through a "all gold everything" phase. I use to wear multiple gold rings on my fingers and multiple necklaces all at once. In 11th grade, this style came with me when I moved to North Carolina. Unfortunately, my senior year of high school someone broke one of the earrings and I lost the other one. I was not able to wear them again.

One day I got the idea to turn my name earring into a necklace similar to my silver "Resee" necklace. I had majority of the material and tools needed to do it already. The only thing I had to buy was the actual chain which I purchased from Michael's Arts and Craft store. The items used were two different jewelry plier tools, 5 jump rings, 2 pieces of the fake gold chain, and latch to close necklace. 

My friends audition for #106thesearch

I have two friends that have submitted audition tapes to become 106 & Park's new host after Terrence J and Rocsi leave. I think it is extremely AWESOME that they both decided to go for it. You never know what may happen. 

Chazeen Pemberton has a lot of experience and is no stranger to hosting and interviewing celebrities. She is one of three hosts on her own web talk show, What Would A Man Do. She has also interviewed celebrities such as Idris Elba, Gabrielle Union, LaLa Anthony just to name a few. Hosting 106 & Park would be a piece of cake for her. Chazeen has a fun personality and promotes positivity. Out of all my friends she inspires me the most. Her attitude is there is not she can't do! She is always coming up with different ideas to present to the world.

LR Guest Blogger: Reasons why we are single #2

A notion that haunts many of us on a day to day basis, though we’d like to lead ourselves to believe that the newest trend is as such. BUT here we are with our human nature, which has us longing for a intimacy that many of us cannot find. Why.... Yes that is the real question, why! Well where do you start, where do WE start. A classic cliché such as, times have changed, nope too easy. Perhaps societal differences, but that just derives from times have changed, so no on that easy route. Let’s get real for a moment and look where the problem really is. Ourselves! The last place any of us look, though we stare at ourselves enough in the mirror, or on instagram to know that. Our vanity is our own undoing, we simple spend to much time egotistically involved with ourselves, yet we don’t know ourselves to know the answer at the top of this page.

How is it cheating if we are not together?

You are at a party, looking absolutely fabulous, and spot a cute guy. You introduce yourself. After a few minutes of conversation you realize not only is  this person cute but he has brains too. The feeling is mutual and you two exchange phone numbers.
Fast forward two months and things are going great. Weekly date nights and spending nights at each others places. You both are even having conversations about how much you care about each other. He surprises you at work. Sends you flowers and buys you gifts. You couldn’t be happier!

Reasons why you are single #1

You are single because you want to be a little selfish and there is nothing wrong with that. At least you are being honest with yourself. You should take time to love and spoil yourself. Being single means you have the freedom to do whatever you want. You can get up and go as you please. Being single is even better when you don’t have kids because you are able to move and travel where ever without any responsibilities.
Being single can actually be a blessing if you really think about it. Some people are consumed with thoughts of finding someone and getting married. Their self-worth is based on finding a husband/wife, someone who will love them. True self-worth is based on how you think of yourself. No one else can define your self-worth. If you don’t know who you are or your worth then you NEED to stay single.

DC Chillin' (Part 2): Kid Daytona - Summer Games Tour at the Beacon Hotel Skybar

After spending a hour or so at Barcode, my friends, Ziggy and Ashley, came over with a few of their friends to say hello. They were on their way back to the Kid Daytona- Summer Games Tour at the Beacon Hotel Skybar and wanted me to come along. One of Ziggy's friends, SmCity, was performing and she was going to support him. Since I am a big lover of music, I decided to join in on the fun.

The Beacon hotel was only a few blocks away from Barcode. Soon as we arrived we stopped at the bar downstairs to have a drink before heading up to the rooftop. While at the bar, Ziggy was showing me her two free pairs of sunglasses given earlier at the event. The sunglasses are by the company Stunner of the Month. The glasses are really cute and edgy. One of the glasses has a gold chain hanging off the frames. The other sunglasses had a cool stripe pattern. The company also gave away "Time To Stunt" slap stick watch bracelets (more photos below).

Amazed and Thank You

I just want to thank everyone that took the time out to watch my videos. Especially this one video in particular, "The Big V: Cleaning Down Under". Who knew a video about vaginas would become popular (I'm laughing right now). I am amazed that this one video has 24k views so far and still going. I only had about 40 subscribers a month ago and now I have 257 subscribers. That is not a lot compared to the youtube stars out there but it is a start and I am amazed and thankful to have that many subscribers. To celebrate, I am putting together a giveaway. I already have some of the items I want to give away but I want to add a few more things before I post a video about it.

DC Chillin' (Part1): Camille's birthday celebration and Outfit of the day

Camille is in the pink dress
Most of my friends live in different states but I try to do my best to see them when possible. It is almost like being in a long distance relationship with your significant other. You have to make the effort to make a friendship work when they are not near. 

One of my friends, Camille, wanted me to come visit her in Washington, DC to celebrate her birthday last weekend. This worked out perfectly because I was coming to DC that same weekend for another friend's event. I actually love DC! So much to do and a lot of my friends are from there or the surrounding areas (Maryland and Virginia). There is a great mixture of culture and some of the women in DC have a unique sense of style.

DIY: Sweetheart wrap tube top (no sewing)

One day, while sitting on my bed, I randomly got the idea to go to the store and buy some fabric to make a tube top. I headed to Joann Fabrics store to find the materials I wanted to use. I decided to buy cotton fabric because it was the cheapest and easy to care for. I found a zebra striped cotton pattern fabric in grey and pink and a white fabric with a flower pattern (flower pattern not visible in photo).
I've never done this before. This whole process was all trial and error. I asked for the associate at the store to cut 2 yards of the zebra pattern fabric and 4 yards of the white fabric. I was scared this would not be enough. To my surprise, when I got home I discovered I had too much fabric (enough to make 5 more tops). It is better to have more  than enough instead of not enough incase of errors or mistakes.

DIY High-Waisted Shorts

Over the last few years I have found myself loving the idea of taking something old and turning it in to something new and amazing. I get inspired a lot by the things around me like nature, magazines, youtube, and etc. It really gives me a chance to see how creative I can be.

Last month one of my friends from Washington DC was in Durham, NC visiting her father. Since I was only 4 hours away, I decided to come visit her. While I was there we took a trip to the thrift store. My goal was to find myself two pairs of jeans that I can turn into high waisted denim shorts. Luckily, I was able to find a pair of old mom jeans that fit good enough around my waist only for $3. The jeans were so unflattering and ugly but I knew that they could be turned into something special.

He's not thirsty for you

Photo courtesy of Ziggy Rayford-Washington DC
I must admit. I was a little late when it came to the slang word "thirsty". I kept seeing this word all over twitter and had no clue what it meant. One day I decided to use the good ole trusty google search to find out what the definition meant. According to UrbanDictionary.com, the top voted definitions of the slang term "thirsty" are:

Sally Hansens Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips review

I have been wanting to try Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips for a long time. In fact, I purchased a box back in February but never had a chance to use them. In June, I finally had some time to try them out and write a review.

I purchased my box of nail polish strips from Wal-mart. I can't remember the exact price because I bought them so long ago but they retail for $6.50 to $9 a box, depending where you buy them. At the time of purchase, there were not many pattern options to choose from but I was drawn to the words on a particular box. The nail polish strip that had my attention  was named Love Letter. Soon as I read the name of the nail polish strip I knew I had to purchase this print.

Outfit of the Day: July 23

I love putting simple pieces together and adding a bit of flare to take an outfit to the next level. It looks so effortless. My outfit for July 23rd was no different. 

Top: This is actually a DIY top. It was originally a long sleeve button up I bought from Old Navy back in 2008. I have not worn this top in years and decided to cut off the sleeve to make it wearable for summer. Another way I wear this top is by unbuttoning the bottom two buttons and tying the bottom material in a knot. The top ends up looking like a cropped shirt.
*I may do a video tutorial on this DIY. Stay tuned!

Amazing Shoes and Other Goodies at Target

I was in Target last week to purchase some hair products and, as always, decided to stop by the shoe section. If you've been following this blog, you already know I LOVE shopping at Target for clothes and shoes from time to time. The quality of their shoes is pretty good for the price. 

There were so many amazing shoes there that I had to take pictures of them and share with you all. I also roamed over to the accessories section to see what goodies were over there.

The first official Glossybox for the United States

I love watching youtube beauty guru videos. In January of this year, I decided to watch past videos on Anna Saccone's youtube channel, The Style Diet. Anna is a 24 year old in love with beauty and health. She lives in Ireland. 

In a few of the Style Diet videos, Anna mentions Glossybox. If you are not familiar, Glossbox is a subscription based website that sends sample to travel sizes of 5 to 6 beauty products each month for $21 a month. After watching style diets video, I began a internet search to see if Glossybox was in the USA. Unfortunately, at the time it was not BUT I did find a United States website for Glossybox US stating it was coming to the US soon. The website also allowed those who were patiently waiting (like me) to add their email to the email list to receive the latest updates and newsletters from the Glossybox US website.

Hauling it...Ulta, Rite Aid and Lip Butters!

I bought a few items from Ulta and Rite Aid back in February. I have finally found some time to show you those items. The haul is centered around one product by Revlon called Lip Butters. I bought three different kinds from Ulta and several different kinds of Rite Aid. They all are a different shade and I think the Lip Butters are amazing.

Obama loves to slow jam

President Barack Obama does a great job in relating to the regular person of the United States. He is down to earth, fun, and knows his information. I love how he can poke fun at himself but still be taken serious when needed.

This the full segment from the Jimmy Fallon Show which includes Barack Obama doing a little slow jam with the Roots. He also let's us know the importance of getting in contact with congress to stop Stafford loan interest rates from doubling in the summer.

I Just wanted to remind you all just how AMAZING our President is :-)

Best Job in the World: A Mother's Love

Sometimes we forget how much our mothers/fathers/guardians done for us. How much they believe in us and support our dreams. I am NOT a mother but from what I have seen, being a mother is not easy. I know their are times when mothers feel overwhelmed with it all. They keep going because the goals and dreams parents have for their kids is for them to do better than they have. 

This commercial was posted on youtube by Proctor & Gamble. A friend on Facebook posted this video to share with her friends. I think this is a beautiful commercial/promotion for the Olympics 2012. I shed a little tear as well. It pulled at my heart strings and I could not keep this too myself.

Love your parents/guardians and make sure to thank them everyday for the love and affection, as well as, support they have given to you. 

Watch this promo! You will be moved!

Style DIY: COLOR BLOCK Bags & Shoes in 30 Minutes

I was looking at my youtube feed and came across and interesting video title about color blocking. I thought this was more of a "How To Style" video but the "DIY" in the title sparked my interest. In the, video Lisa Pullano shows us how to keep up with the color blocking trend without paying a lot of money. After watching the video, you will know how to turn your old plain boring handbags and/or shoes into something extremely amazing, colorful, and bright. I'm AMAZED at how great everything came out!

I am going to think twice before giving some of my old shoes and handbags away. I am going to try this out.



An Eye For a Cat Eye

For the last year (maybe longer) I've been on a hunt for cat-eyed glasses. I searched all over the internet for them but could not find cat eyed glasses similar to the ones Marilyn Monroe use to wear. 

In September of 2011, I was in Atlanta for an audition. My friend and I decided to visit Lenox Mall. I thought I would be able to find the glasses I wanted. Unfortunately, none of the stores had cat-eyed glasses. I bought  tortoise framed Wayfarers by Ray Ban instead. I love my Ray Bans but they were just not what I wanted.

One day, while searching on the internet, I stumbled across this sunglasses website. I decided just to look, with no intention of purchasing anything. To my surprise, I saw cat-eyed glasses! The glasses were extremely inexpensive. I wasted no time and purchased 3 different cat eyed glasses. 

Below are photos of the glasses I love so much!

Curious about the website? The company is Retro City Sunglasses. The website link is http://retrocitysunglasses.com/. I plan on purchasing the tortoise framed Key Hole glasses once it is back in stock.

What do you think about my cat-eyed glasses?

Sunday's Lesson: Dealing With Negativity

Feeling really negative about your situation these days? I know the feeling. Here are some words of encouragement and tips to help you get over that hump! Have a happy Sunday!



Exclusive Make Up For Ever Products on QVC

The first and only time I purchased something from QVC was a few weeks ago. Smashbox created the Photo Op Mega Palette exclusively for QVC customers. Since I normally do not shop on QVC, I though this palette would be my first and last QVC purchase. That was until I received an exciting email from a well known cosmetics company. 

Make Up For Ever (MUFE) will be featured on QVC Monday, March 19th at 9 am. MUFE will be selling products the company created exclusively for QVC only. MUFE will also be selling products that are already available in Sephora.

The exclusive products will ONLY be for QVC and cannot be purchased any where else. I am hoping the exclusive products have great deals just like the Smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette. 

Will you be tuning in? I know most people will be at work. If you do decide to watch the MUFE segment on QVC and want to buy a product that is already available in the stores, make sure you do a little research. Sometimes QVC's prices are higher than retailers.

Luckily for me, Mondays are my days off! I am excited find out about the exclusive products and deals.

Small Wet n Wild Haul

I have been hearing a lot of great things about Wet n Wild products lately. I was actually surprised to hear the same products some of my friends use to use as  teenagers are still a favorite drugstore brand for adult women.

This past Tuesday, I decided to stop by CVS and purchase a few palettes. I really wanted to purchase the 8 eye shadow Wet N Wild palettes. To my surprise, ALL of those palettes were sold out. The only eye shadows available were two different trios. The other eye shadows being sold out confirms Wet N Wild still has a huge following. I've been missing out. I decide to buy the only products left at CVS. I bought two different eye shadow trios, one lipstick, and a blush. 

Wet N Wild's Wild shine Lipstick in Passionate 921

This beautiful nude with pink undertone lipstick glides on easily. When applying it to my lips, it  reminds me of Revlon's lip butters but with more pigmentation. This lipstick is very moisturizing.  The only con about this lipstick is the size. It is very small and skinny. If used consistently, You will need another one within 2 weeks.

The photos below shows how different the color looks in different lighting. Without the flash the lipstick looks like a light pink neutral color. With the flash on the lipstick looks hot pink with hints of purple.

Wet N' Wild's Blush and eye shadows
I have not had a chance to actually try out and wear the eye shadows or blush. I did take a couple swatches of each product and I am very surprised at how pigmented each eye shadows and blush are. These products really give you a bang for your buck. Below are swatches and photos of the product with and without the flash.

The name of this palette is Walking On Eggshells 380B. Each eye shadow is engraved
with the area the eyeshadow should be applied.

The name of this palette is Spoiled Brat 336. Each eye shadow is engraved
with the area the eyeshadow should be applied.

The name of this blush is Heather Silk 832E.
You should use a light hand when applying this blush. It is very pigmented.

I believe Wet N Wild is a favorite drugstore brand for a lot of women because the price of the products are extremely low. I purchased each product for $2.99 each. That totals to $11.96 (not including taxes) for 4 different products. One Revlon lipstick costs anywhere between $6 to $8. 

Take some time out to look through Wet N Wild products the next time you are out to purchase makeup. You may be surprised at the amazing products you will find. Wet N Wild is definitely a oldie but a goodie!

Love Resee: Youtube Intro Video :-)

I just uploaded My first official youtube video and I am EXTREMELY excited! I thought I would create a introduction video for the youtube world. One of my goals for 2012 was to create a youtube channel and a blog that work together. I will be posting the videos I create on loveresee.com.

I didn't want to start making videos until I found a good camera and learned how to use iMovie. It took sometime but I think I've finally got it. I plan on adding more video this upcoming week.

If you like my first few blog posts don't worry. I will continue to write. In the mean time, watch this video and tell me what you think. Enjoy!

Makeup Products for Beginners Part 2: BH Cosmetics 4th Edition Palette

New to makeup and want to experiment with different eyeshadows? No worries! I've have the perfect product for you. The first post in the series, Makeup Products for Beginners by loveresee.com, features a blush palette from BH Cosmetics. BH cosmetics also has affordable eye shadow palettes great for makeup beginners and people with experience.
BH Cosmetics has 4 different editions of the 120 color eye shadow palette. The palette loveresee.com is featuring today is the 120 4th edition color palette, Ultra Shimmer. This palette contains beautiful vibrant colors and shimmers. Shimmers are the little sparkles that can be found in some eye shadows. This product is great for beginners because shimmers are easier to work with than matte eye shadows. If not blended properly, matte eye shadows can end up looking horrible. With shimmer eye shadows, you can apply it  all over the lid alone or blend with other colors and it will look like you put in a lot of effort.  

Below are photos of the Ultra Shimmer 120 4th Edition Color Palette and photos of swatches from random eyeshadows in the top and bottom trays of the palette. As you will see the color pay off is amazing for the price.

Palette come in a box (top photo). Inside the box the palette is covered in plastic. 

120 palette comes in 2 trays of 60 eye shadows
stacked on top of each other. A plastic sheet is on top of eye tray to protect the eye shadow.

Random Swatches from the top palette.

Random Swatches from the bottom palette.

BH Cosmetics always has some sort of sale going on everyday. The Ultra Shimmer 120 Palette retails for $34.95 but is currently on sale for $29.71. I purchased this palette beginning of December 2011 and paid around $25 for it. The current price of $29.71 is still a great deal for 120 different color eye shadows compared to paying $15 for one MAC Cosmetics eye shadow. 

If interested in buying this palette visit BH Cosmetics' website http://www.bhcosmetics.com/. Below is a video tutorial by DulceCandy87 using the 120 4th edition color palette, Ultra Shimmer. Enjoy!

Target Fashion Find: Sequin Clutch

I am back again with another Target fashion find! If you know me then you know I LOVE sequin on any and everything. I bought this blush color sequin clutch in december for $16.99. This clutch was also available in gold but lately I've been loving blush, rusted, and rose gold colors. I could not resist buying this one. The chain strap was the icing on the cake. This clutch is definitely a beauty!

Below I have pictures of the clutch with and without the flash so you can see how it looks in different lighting. 

Are you a Target lover yet? Take some time out and visit the clothing and accessory department of the store. You will be surprised at all the goodies you will find!

Hautelook.com: NYX Cosmetics

If you watch the beauty gurus on youtube then you are familiar with the website Hautelook.com. So many of them mention this website in videos. Hautelook is a great place to score amazing deals on fashion, beauty, and lifestyle items. Items that are normally high in price are offered on the website for a short period time at a discount rate or packaged deal. 

I've always looked but never purchased anything. When I first heard about Hautelook, I missed the sale on NYX Cosmetics by 1 hour. I decided to wait until Hautelook did another NYX sale. Yesterday I received an email that Hautelook will be having a sale on NYX Products today. The sale started today at 8 am Pacific Time and ends on March 14, 2012 8 am Pacific time. I was extremely excited and purchased a few things. 

Normally, lipsticks on the NYX website are about $4 each (probably more in stores like Ulta and Sephora). Below is an example of how great the deals are. You will see just how much I spent and saved just by buying a set. You will be a believer at this!

Lip Set: 4 different nude pink lipsticks, Slim Lip Pencil Liner in Nude, and Jumbo Lip Pencil in Iris for $14.50.
If purchased alone this lip set would have totaled $24. Each lipstick is $4, each jumbo pencil is $4.50, and each slim lip pencil is $3.50 alone. I saved $9.50 on buying this one set. Below are more purchases I made.

Jumbo Eye Pencil Set: 6 Jumbo Eye Pencils for $16

Lip Set: 5 different Soft Matte Lip Creams for $18.

Target Fashion Find

I love shopping at Target! I especially love the shoes, bags, and clothes the store has to offer. Some people would never think of shopping in Target for clothes. TRUST ME! It is worth a little bit of your time to go in there and look around. You will be amazed at all of the cute and trendy things the store has to offer.

In either November or December, I was looking around at Target and spotted these cute black flats by the Merona brand in the shoe section.  I can't remember the exact price but I believe they were between $19 to $30. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to purchase them. The metal tip of the shoe is what makes this flat stand out. I also love that sometimes the metal tip shows up silver in some photos and looks like it changed colors other photos.

I have not had a chance to wear and style them with an outfit yet but I think they are something special.

Do you have any Target fashion finds? I have a lot in my closet.
