Style Wars in Miami

What a great night in Miami for this little blogger. 
After an evening of dinner and drinks with the Chevy Spark team, I headed over to Riccochet Bar & Lounge for the Style Wars competition. Here, I met the wonderful, Erica Zohar, from Teeology. I cant wait to show off my new Teeology tees... the fabric is so soft and comfy.
The Style Wars competition was super fun and entertaining and I adore the bloggers that were chosen to battle it out for the win.

Try to spot me and my good friend, Kaity in the video above! Dont blink. ;)

Music Monday// Miranda Rose

Hi Ghouls!
Halloween is here and I know you all love to play dress up as much as I do! I have been enjoying classical Halloween traditions this week. I carved a Music Monday pumpkin and made my own costume.  All the while drinking my favorite seasonal beer (Shipyard Pumpkin Ale) and listinging to spooky music. The Monster Mash and The Time Warp are on the top of my list!
This week you can be anything, I always want to be Madonna.

When your desktop becomes your mood board....

Hi ladies! 
Lately, my desktop has been suffering from neglect and images from some of my favorite websites clutter my computer screen. When it comes to blogging, it really helps to be super organized. So, starting with a clean workspace is a great way to stay focused and productive. 
I recommend cleaning your desktop daily. 
Take a look at what's currently hogging all my screen space. 
I can't complain, its not a bad view. ;)

Music Monday // Miranda Rose

Hey busy bees!
 I'll be listening to rock this whole week to keep me going. I was planning on deafening your ears with some loud punk, but that will have to wait, because this video can't. Lana Del Rey's new video for "Ride" is filled with inspiring American rock style. 
See for yourself...

Falling for Dark Lips

It's officially Fall, and it's time to trade in your candy-colored lipsticks for more sophisticated, sultry shades.  

The key to perfect this look is to keep the focus on the lips and leave everything else minimal.  My favorite way to wear this look is to perfect the skin with a tinted moisturizer topped with a light dusting of powder on the t-zone.  Contour the face: the cheekbones, around the forehead, and under the jawbone.  Lightly fill in the eyebrows, and apply mascara.  I prefer brown mascara for a softer look.  A liquid highlighter (Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in Kitten) on top of the cheekbones and on the inner corners of the eyes is a beautiful touch.  
Apply a dark shade of lipstick to complete this vampy look.  Dark plum, maroon, deep red, and brown are all perfect colors.  Keep it modern and undone by applying the lipstick with your finger tips to ensure soft edges, or apply it directly from the tube and soften the edges with a cotton swab.  Blot lightly with a tissue paper and reapply for long-lasting lips.  If desired, top with a creamy lip balm such as Smith's Rosebud Salve.

My Favorite shades for Fall:

Cyber by MAC (deep purple)
#49 Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense (deep purpled wine)
Cherry Chocolate by Mehron (rich cherry brown)
Black Cherry by Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick (deep blood-red)
Vamp by Chanel Hydrabase (dark red-berry)
