B.A.D. Girl Link Love: Dream Chasing, Champagne and Wasting Time

April 18, 2014

link loveHi Loves, I hope you all are having a great week! I am really happy because I received notification that my trademark application with the USTPO has been approved and is in its final stages! This means I will be the official registered trademark owner of ‘B.A.D. Beautiful, Authentic & Determined’ very soon! I always knew in the back of my mind that I needed to protect myself, but if I am being honest it wasn’t until I found myself dealing with my FIRST infringement issue that I kicked it into high gear and dropped a huge chunk of money to protect what I have worked so hard to create. It’s something that I highly recommend to anyone with a unique idea, name or brand and are looking to really invest in it for the long haul. If you need help or have questions about the trademark filing process you can always reach out to me!

Here are this weeks links I am loving:

Link Love 4.11.14

Beautiful:

I love hearing/reading peoples success stories because it motivates and inspires me to push forward with my own dreams. Preetma Singh went from being a lawyer to a fashion editor because she realized her real passion and made the effort to have it become her reality. That’s B.A.D-ASS. (via The Cut)

Authentic:

I will keep it real; I don’t know much about champagne except that I enjoy drinking it. However, thanks to this ‘Champagne Basics’ guide I now know it doesn’t have to be expensive to be good. I will be sure to reference this post the next time I need to buy a bottle of bubbly.  (via Cupcakes & Cashmere)

Determined:

In 2014 I made a promise to myself to stop wasting my time and to do more of what I love and more importantly WANT to do. This post gives 3 powerful ways to stop wasting your time. (via Forbes)

Thoughts?

B.A.D. Girl Trend: Snake Print as a Neutral

April 17, 2014
Spring Trend Snake Print Stella McCartney Swim Suit | Zara Flats | Jason Wu Top | H&M Slip-ons | EVLEO Pants | Tory Burch Handbag | DVF Heels |

Leopard print has always been my go-to for many years . However, snake print is really catching my eye lately and I think it is going to be my new obsession for the season. I like to work prints like leopard or snake into my outfits by looking at them as a neutral piece that can be paired with almost anything. If you stick to a natural, grey or black color with your snake print the item will be much more versatile.  Its fun to take a simple outfit like jeans and a tee and then throw on snake print shoes or a bag to take your look from casual to casual-chic.

My one “rule” that I stick to with prints is that I don’t double up on it, which means I wont rock snake print shoes and a snake print bag at the same time. Its way too matchy-matchy for me.

What’s your favorite print for Spring?

XOXO

True Love Tuesday: Add Some Distance in Your Relationship

April 15, 2014

love and distance quote I have been in a somewhat long distance relationship for the past 6 years with my boyfriend living a little over an hour away. I know this is nothing compared to other long distance relationships, but it definitely still makes things a bit difficult. However, over time I have realized that the distance between us has helped to strengthen our relationship by improving our communication and trust with one another.

This past weekend I went on a girls trip with my sorority sisters and put way more than an hour in between us. I can’t put it into exact words, but being so far away from your s/o that you see regularly definitely sparks feelings of appreciation for not only your relationship, but your partner as well. It can help to rejuvenate your relationship especially those of us in long term ones.

I definitely recommend adding some miles in between you and your s/o to see how it makes you feel about one another. And if a trip isn’t something you can do right now then add some extended time in between seeing each other. It’s important to keep things interesting and even more so that you keep your independence!

How often do you see your s/o?

XOXO

B.A.D. Girl Beauty Tip: 5 Ways To Fill in Your Eyebrows

April 7, 2014

eyebrow quotesI couldn’t’ agree more with the above quote; I always feel like a new woman when my eyebrows are on point. Ever since I discovered the wonders of filling in my very light, barely there brows I just don’t feel complete without them, especially when I am putting on a full face of makeup. Your eyebrows really do make a huge difference and filling them in takes them to the next level! Your first step is to figure out the perfect shape for your face and then you need to figure out which way you like to fill them in because each technique creates a different look.

tips for filling in brows

1. Brow Pencil: This is one of the most basic ways to fill in your brows. Brow pencils come in varying shades and have a waxier formula than eyeliner pencils. This allows them to go on naturally and smoothly, without the risk of harsh lines so don’t try using your eyeliner! I personally use MAC’s self sharpening eyebrow pencil in Lingering ($16).  When applying use short, light strokes to fill out your brows and soften it all out with a stiff angle brow brush.

2. Brow Gel: A brow gel helps keep unruly brows in place. Clear brow gel is great for those of you who already have thick brows, but need extra taming after you fill them in. Tinted brow gel adds a hint of color to your brows while shaping them.

3. Brow Pens/Markers: Brow pens usually have a felt tip that distributes pigmented color on your brows. I just started using an eyebrow marker by NYX and I love it because the fine tip helps me to draw the shape I want to create with ease. The brow pens also have great staying power that will last all day. Use feathery strokes like you would with a brow pencil for a naturally filled in look.

4. Brow Stencils: Brow stencils are a great tool if you are looking to experiment with different shapes or you need practice filling in your brows. This set by Anastasia of Beverly Hills comes with 5 different shapes from a petite to a full arch.

5. Brow Powder (or matte eye shadow): To create a softer look, use a brow powder or matte eye shadow that’s lighter than your natural eyebrow color if you’re brunette and one shade darker if you’re blonde. Tap an angled brow brush into the powder and trace the outline of your brows, using light strokes. This is where the stencils may come in handy to serve as a guide to create shape. To prevent the color from fading use clear brow gel to seal it in.

How do you fill in your brows?
