Smokey Blue

Hi all, just thought i'd drop a quick post and share the make up pictures from this post(You've probably seen them if you are on my instagram).
Anytime, I use extremely dark eye shadow, it looks like I have a black eye. So, my goal for this look was to make dark smokey eyes work for me. I did not use any special technique but I think the look worked out this time around. I am still so terrible when it comes to eyebrows, so y'all are going to have to forgive me.

Enjoy...

Travel Therapy: Paris


Paris has always been one of my dream destinations, and when my friend and I started planning the "very much needed vacay" I mentioned here, it was at the very top of the list. We spent two nights in Paris, but since we planned to visit Brussels(Belgium) from Paris, we only had one full day to spare. Our hotel was very close to the Eiffel Tower and it was one of the first stops we made. We knew that we were not going to see much of the city if we explored on our own, so we took one of the "hop on, hop off" tour buses. The tour bus was a good idea, and I definitely recommend it to anyone with limited vacay time. It was indeed a great way to see the city, visit the major sights and learn about the history through the headphone lecture. In addition to the Eiffel Tower, we rode down the famous "The Avenue des Champs-Élysées", we saw the Grand Palais, Arc de Triomphe, visited the Notre Dame Cathedral, and even went to The Louvre to say hello to the beautiful MonaLisa. I was in awe of the city and my camera kept clicking. Below are just a few of the pictures I took.

That's all for now.I will be posting pictures from the six other cities I visited over the next few weeks.Have an amazing month!
