New Years Eve Outfit Ideas!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema here with a post to show you an idea for your New Years Eve outfit!
Untitled #10
So, I started off with a sparkly silver dress to give the outfit an overall feel of glitz. This sheath dress is from Forever21 and retails for $38. Then, I added a pair of spike studded ballet flats from Charlotte Russe. The silver on the toe matches the dress beautifully and the spikes give the look the perfect amount of edge. The shoes cost about $30. For jewelry I wanted to keep it simple, adding only some stacked black and silver bracelets (Charlotte Russe $6). Lastly, I paired the dress with a gorgeous bow clutch. This one from Nordstrom is incredibly expensive at $395, but you can easily find much less expensive versions at Forever21, or even Target.
I feel like this outfit would be the perfect way to bring in the New Year with a bang!

All about NAKED!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema here blogging about the three Urban Decay Naked palettes! Mahe and I have already done a review on the Naked 2 palette but I just wanted to give you a little more information on all three palettes! To read our review post, click the link below. However, I do want to let you know that this is not a review post because I have not tried out the other two palettes. This post will just be a quick source of information on the palettes.
Naked 1 Palette:
The Urban Decay Naked palette is a gorgeous bronze-based palette with 12 neutral shades. The palette includes lighter, champagne colored shades such as "virgin" or "sin," as it works its way through darker, and slightly more sparkly colors like "sidecar" or "half baked." The palette also includes some purples and blues, "mustle," "creep," and "gunmetal," for a darker, nighttime look. This product also comes with a flat shader brush and features the Urban Decay travel size Primer Potion. I definitely would love to own this palette, but currently don't due to the $50 price.
Naked 2 Palette:
The Urban Decay Naked 2 palette is one that I do own. However, this product is also $50. This palette is much cooler than the Naked palette, but still features warmer shades like "snakebite" or "tease." This palette also comes with 12 beautiful colors but features more sparkly and shimmery colors than the Naked 1. This consists of shades like "bootycall," "chopper," and "ydk." It also includes some matte shades such as "tease" and "busted." One think that I really like about this palette is that it includes a pure black color. Now although I wouldn't use it as eyeshadow, this color is great if you are low on eyeliner.  The Naked 2 also comes with a double sided brush with a flat shader on one side and a blending brush on the other. In place of the primer potion in Naked 1, there is a gorgeous berry colored lip gloss (travel size).
Naked Basics:
This is the newest Naked palette, the Urban Decay Naked Basics. This palette has 6 colors instead of twelve, but is also much more affordable at $27. The soft palette includes some shades seen before in the previous palettes, such as "Foxy," but also has never before seen colors like "Venus" or "Faint." For me, I wouldn't buy this palette just because I feel like the other palettes include much more for their cost. However, if you are looking for a high-end, neutral palette, this is definitely one you should check out!
So, what do you think of the incredibly enticing "Naked" palettes? Leave your response in the comments below!

Holiday/ Winter Outfit Ideas!

Hey Luvs! It's Raahema here to show you an idea for a
winter/holiday outfit! Enjoy! 

Untitled #11
So, for this outfit I started off with simple skinny jeans. On top, I added a beutiful reindeer print sweater from A&F, $72. To keep with the warm and cozy feel of the look, I paired the sweater and jeans with some warm, gray Cardi UGGs. For bags, I added a quilted heart purse from Forever21 for $25. In my opinion, the bag gives the look a softer, more delicate feel. And of course, I couldn't forget the winter accesories, so I gave the outfit a pair of cream colored gloves and a matching knit hat! I think that this outfit is perfect to wear during the holidays, or on a chilly, winter day!
So, what do you think about this outfit? Leave your response in the comments below!

Need Some Change: Haircut!?!

      Hey Luvs, it's Mahe here bloggin' about hair!! I have had the same hair cut for a couple years now and it is time to change it up.... a bit! I don't want to do anything drastic because I have done that before and I don't want to go down that route again! In seventh grade I got my hair cut very short and let me tell you, I did not like it! I wish I had a picture of when I got it done that day because I looked like I went back in time to the 80's!! However, when it grew out to about my shoulders I thought it looked pretty good on me. Now my hair has grown out past my shoulders! I really want to grow out my hair, but I also need to get a cut with some shape to it! I did have really long hair when I was younger, but in 4th grade I cut 12 inches off and donated it to a charity called LOCKS FOR LOVE. Even with that haircut my hair was still past my shoulders!!! So basically, I'm just rambling about my hair because I would really love if you all can give me suggestions on what I should do with my hair cut wise!!

As  you from the pictures my hair is very flat and shapeless!!  Please help me guys and tell me how you think I should get my hair cut!!

Holiday Gift Guide!! For Her MAKEUP!

Hey Luvs, so the Holiday season is obviously here, so today I am going to talk about some gift ideas for her. I am going to start with some cheaper priced ones and work my way up to the expensive gifts!

$20 and Under! MAKEUP

Believe it or not you can get some good makeup items for $20 and less! I wouldn't recommend getting someone one lip gloss or one nail polish because the gift may not seem as thoughtful! So, a good idea is to get someone a value set or a palette. Sephora comes out with such great little palettes and sets for this time of year!

On the left here are just three of the MANY palettes that you can get from sephora! The first one is $20 the second one is only $10 and the last one is $19. It's great because this is all high end makeup that is very inexpensive!!

If you have a friend that is experimenting with make up it is probably better to get them some drugstore makeup, but for the holidays one product isn't going to cut it! Elf is a really great brand of makeup that is super duper cheap! The quality of the makeup varies but that's what YouTube is for!! Right?!?! Do your research before!!

Elf has really great gifts for this holiday season from 144 piece eyeshadow palette for only $15! Brush belt for only $15 with and 15 nail polishes for only $15!! http://www.eyeslipsface.com/

$50 and Under!

The Naked 2 palette is a versatile palette and is great for anyone to use if the love makeup. It retails for $50 so i would get it for someone who really appreciates makeup.

These Mac brushes make a great gift. It is from there new holiday collection this year and it is only $50!! Which is great for mac brushes though, they are mini sizes!!

The last type of gifts are the beauty sets from sephora! they are amazing because you can get a bunch of them and split them up between Friends to make cute little holiday baskets for them!!

These are just some of the many beauty products that you can get for those beauty lovers, whether it is your friends, sisters, mom, grandma, whoever!

Naked 2 Pallete Review!!

Hey Luvs it's Mahe and Raahema here doing a post about our opinions on the Naked 2 Palette! We both bought this palette on Black Friday and we are so excited to tell you guys all about!!

Black Friday Haul 2012:

Mahe's Review: I love this palette!! I have been OBSESSED with it ever since I purchased it!! I love how this palette is very versatile. I can easily go from a day look to a night look! Some of my favorite colors in this palette are Chopper, Suspect and Tease!! However, what I don't really like about this is the brush! The double ended brush was a plus but it is not soft at all!! It is not very soothing to my skin! But, I still like how it is a brush rather than a sponge tip applicator! The Naked 2 Palette come with an Urban Decay lip gloss in Naked, and I LOVE this lip gloss! I love the color the scent the taste, and the fact that it plumps my lips!! I actually did a tutorial using this palette, so if you want to check it our click here. --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoyhM5sMRpo&feature=g-crec-u So that's my review! I hope you found this helpful!!

Raahema: I am also in luv with this palette. I wear it almost everyday, and love how it has a variety of colors, ranging from matte to sparkly to shimmery. The palette also has an assortment of colors, including both light and dark colors. I actually don't mind the brush and use one side for patting colors and the other for blending. The lip gloss is also amazing!  The color is a gorgeous berry color that is perfect for the holidays! I would give this product 5 stars!
