Holiday Gift Guide w/ Stylewatch

December 8, 2016


With really only 3 weeks left until Christmas, the gift getting frenzy has officially ensued. I don’t know about you but I sometimes find it difficult to find the perfect gift for each of my loved ones and it can leave me stressed to the max! Going store to store at the last minute only to come out with nothing can be incredibly exhausting. Luckily for you and for me, People Stylewatch Magazine has selected some of their top picks for holiday gifts that your friends and family are sure to love. The best part is that you can purchase these online so no need to fight for parking and wait in long check out lines. See the list below!

Kipling Paolo Velvet Backpack

This super smooth velvet backpack is great for someone who is often on the go but still loves to be stylish going from point A to B. A great mixture of fashion and functionality!



Outfit details: Sweater | Skirt

Marc Fisher Factor2 Two Piece Velvet Sandal

Continuing on with the velvet trend, these glitter heel sandals are a great gift for someone who knows how to get the party started. With New Year’s Eve right around the corner from Christmas, this will be an item that your recipient can start to enjoy immediately! Also, they come in 2 additional colors.



Quay Australia Sunglasses

These ultra stylish yet surprisingly affordable sunglasses will serve as an impressive gift. With quality on par with high end designer brands, no one will be the wiser that you spent less than $60!


Sally Hansen Color Therapy

Color Therapy Sally Hansen is a system that includes a color coat and top coat. But this just isn’t any nail polish. This system promises to “care while you wear”. With argan oil infused in the products, it provides nourishment for healthy looking nails.


stylewatch-sally-2 “Back Me Up” Mobile Charger

We all have that one friend of family member whose phone is always dying. If you knew me personally, that person would be me. That is one of the reasons why I love this phone accessory so much. It is a compact phone mobile charger so that you don’t ever have to worry about your phone dying when you are out. Also the cute details of the pink and gold are a great feminine touch.

Spring Lipstick Shades for Darker Skin

May 13, 2016


Today I am doing something a little different on the blog. Although I love fashion, I also love to dabble in beauty, particularly lipsticks. Lipsticks are such a great way to get an instant pop of color. They can be the perfect accessory to your outfit by complimenting your color scheme or being the contrast that you need to really make your look shine. The best part is that lipsticks are easily accessible to everyone and different shades can look great on a myriad of skin tones. This post, however, is dedicated to my brown girls since I am a brown girl myself and I wanted to test out some new shades for the Spring/Summer seasons.

Lipstick Color: ColourPop Mars


So I finally got on the ColourPop train. I have been hearing about this brand for so long and how they have great quality products for inexpensive prices. I almost thought that it was too good to be true. With these matte lipsticks for only $6/each, I thought there has to be something wrong with them, right? I was pleasantly surprised with this bright coral color that is the same texture and consistency of some of my $20 lip shades. Needless to say, I’m a believer!

Lipstick Color: Stila Cosmetics Como


This is probably my favorite lipstick shade. Every time I wear it, I get SO many compliments. Although its a bright color, it complements my skin tone well. A mixture of a pink and purple, it gives off a flawless shade that is sure to get you noticed. Best thing is, its versatile. I originally saw this lip color on a blogger that was white and fell in love with it on her. After heading to my nearest Sephora and trying it on for myself, I knew that I had a winner.

Lipstick Color: Coloured Raine Electric Raine


For my bold girls, this color is for you! This orange colored hue is one that will definitely get you noticed. “Electric” is actually the perfect name to describe this lipstick. Although it is a vibrant shade, our melanin can surely handle it. The warmth and richness of our skin tone offers a great balance that not many have and serves to enhance our face, creating an overall glowing look. P.S. – Coloured Raine is a black owned business.

Lipstick Color: Jeffree Star Cosmetics Prom Night


I love a good pink lipstick. It is my go-to for a lot of looks because its a great pop of color that is noticeable yet can also blend in. This shade from Jeffree Star screams all things Spring. It is fun, vibrant and totally girlie (sort of like me). A classic Barbie pink that is matte and lasts all day? Sign me up!

Lipstick Color: ColourPop Trap with Revlon Super Natural Gloss


Ok raise your hand if you are a brown skin girl who has had the hardest time finding a great nude lipstick? (insert raised hand emoji here). It is such a struggle right? If they are not making your lips look completely ashy, they are just non-existent altogether. I just so happen to stumble on these two products and I am so thankful that I did. When placing my order with ColourPop, I decided to purchase multiple shades because, hello, only $6! I didn’t want to go through the hassle of paying for shipping twice and thought that it was worth the risk. So I purchased “Trap” which creates the base of this nude look. When I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised but knew I was missing. I remembered that I had received this Revlon gloss in a gift bag and thought, “I wonder if that would look good with this?”. And BOOM! With a slight tint of color, it adds the shine to this matte nude shade and creates a simple yet flawless appearance.

Hope you love these shades as much as I do!

Hugs & KISSES,


Silky Hair with Moroccanoil

January 26, 2016


Today I am doing something a little different on the blog. Although I mainly highlight fashion, I wanted to explore some other areas that can enhance your overall look as well. After all, style does not begin and end with fashion but it is the entire presentation. So today we are talking about hair care. I’ve had the privilege of trying out the line of Moroccanoil products and I must say that I am quite impressed. If you are not familiar with this brand, they are the first to have Argan oil-infused beauty. With much of the country experiencing the harshness and dryness of Winter, argan oil can help bring back that luster and shine into your tresses. An added bonus is that their line extends to skincare as well so no matter your hair or skincare woes, Moroccanoil’s extensive range of products can help you through.

My normal hair routine is like many others in that I wash it with shampoo and conditioner, blow dry it and then style it however I see fit whether that be curly or straight. What I decided to do was simply replace my normal products with the Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner and then straighten my hair with the Moroccanoil treatment.



These products are color safe, sulfate, phosphate and paraben free which is so important to the health of your hair. The shampoo & conditioner left my hair feeling very clean from root to tip. It was different type of feel than my other cleansers. After blow drying my hair, this is what I look like. Real attractive, I know, BUT it gets better.


Ok so are you ready for this transformation? Look at the shine and vibrancy that my hair has?! With one pump of the Moroccanoil Treatment, my hair immediately came to life! I normally don’t apply any products before straightening  which leaves stubborn fly-aways that I have just learned to live with. After using the oil, I felt like I has just stepped out of a salon. Not one hair out of place. It was SUCH a difference.




Can you tell that I am in love? In all seriousness, I truly saw a difference in my hair after using these products and I’m excited to try the skincare as well including the Shimmering Body Oil pictured below on the far right. This oil gives you glowing and radiant skin that is nourishing as well. You can see the full line as well as information here.

Beauty…Your Way

September 16, 2015



Volition Fav 2

Volition Fav 3

Beauty and fashion are closely intertwined industries. Both allow you the ability to present the best version of yourself based on your own style and aesthetics. It’s a way of self-expression and shows a glimpse into who you are. Traditionally, we as consumers have been influenced by what is highlighted in mainstream media. The latest trends and newest crazes all stem from what brands decide that we should flock to. But what if we had the power to decide for ourselves?

Let me introduce you to Volition Beauty. Volition is a new cosmetics line that is changing the beauty industry as we know it by giving the decision making power back to consumers. What does that mean? At, you have the ability to tell the company what products you want made instead of it being the other way around. Members can browse through their site to discover products that they would like to vote on. Once a product campaign gets enough votes, Volition creates the product and anyone who voted for the product can purchase it at a discount (up to 40% off!) – just for voting! Volition works with the top labs and cosmetic chemists, the same ones that formulate for leading luxury brands, to make their community member’s product ideas a reality. So essentially, you will be getting name brand quality at cheaper price (where do I sign up?).

I love the idea of taking matters into your own hands and deciding what products to create so I had to try it out for myself. I was drawn to the Instant Mattifying Mist from their product collection because of my oily-prone skin. I was looking for something that would keep me matte and smooth all day. As soon as I sprayed the product on my skin, I instantly became a believer. I could immediately tell a difference and could feel my skin tightening to close up my pores. I was compelled to vote and that’s just what I did. You can do the same! Head over to, sign up and vote on a product you would like to have. You could be a part of the start of a beauty revolution!

As an added bonus, I’m giving away an amazing CoCreation Collection filled with 4 deluxe sized samples of current product campaigns so that you, too, can try these out for yourselves. I wish that I could hold on to this myself but I love y’all too much not to share. To enter to win this gift is simple: browse through the product campaigns on, vote on a product and tell me what you voted on. That’s it and the prize could be yours! Be sure to comment on this post below.
