Wrap of many colors

I have been obsessed with smokey eyes for the past few months, and when it was time to take pictures of new merchandise for my online store, Chic Therapy Accessories, I of course went for a smokey look. The patchwork head wrap was the focal point of the picture, and I decided to match the shades of blue in the fabric with a cobalt blue eyeshadow. I have tons of blue eyeshadows, but Hawaiian blue by Lisi Cosmetics is the most pigmented  blue I have ever come across. With a lot of color going on with the wrap and my eyes, I kept the lips simple with a nudish/pink color. 

Below are the pictures. Enjoy!

A Saturday afternoon in Beacon Hill

Last Saturday, I found myself in the historical neighborhood of Beacon Hill. One of the most upscale neighborhood in New England, Beacon Hill is reminiscent of old Europe. The cobble stone roads and narrow streets reminded of Lisbon, and for a minute, I thought I was outside the United States.

 I spent my time wondering around and just taking in the beautiful scenery. From colorful doors, to brick row houses, and even cute puppies on their evening stroll, there was no shortage of charm.

Below are some pictures I took.

When I was done exploring Beacon Hill, I went off to window shop. How cute is this bag I found at Aldo?
Lipstick: Colourpop, Highball
That's all folks. Have a great weekend.

Big hair, do care

When it comes to hair styles, my mantra is KISS (Keep it Stupid Simple), but a few weeks ago I thought to change things up a bit and rock something different. While all my friends loved the new do, I couldn't get used to the big curly mass of hair that had taken over my head.

 Aside that it felt like the rock of Gibraltar was chilling and having a good 'ol vacation on my head, this curly hair do seemed to block my peripheral vision, and I was sure that I was going to get hit by a bus if I attempted to walk on the street with it. 

On the other hand, I absolutely loved my make up. The purple and pink eye shadow, and the dark eggplant colored lips was a perfect match for my pink wrap top.

 What do you think of this hair style? Should I give it another go?  
 Please leave me a comment and let me know.
