Many of you know that I barely wear any makeup except eyeliner, mascara, and of course, I love a good lippie. Now my girl Daniesha put me onto some bomb lipsticks, however, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Mented Cosmetics. I have heard such great reviews about their products and I must admit I had to try it.

Allow me to give you some background. Mentend is a black-owned cosmetic line found by two friends KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson. Have you ever wondered why it’s so hard to find the perfect nude lipstick for brown skin? I sure have and so did they. They created this line “every woman should be able to find herself in the world of beauty, no matter her skin tone. We know you’ll love being put first – because when it comes to beauty, no one deserves to be an afterthought.”  Each of their products is perfectly pigMENTED to match your skin tone.

Daishiki Summer Fun

Divas,

Are you feeling a little bohemian, with African flare. Well lets take a flashback to the 70’s and let me show you how to Shag it out!!! Lets Dive into the goodness.

Daishiki

This classic Daishiki was given imported from my hometown California from a vintage store in L.A. My lovely friend Nkechi snagged this for me for $18 (Nkechi’s look viewed on the right). This classic orange, yellow, black, purple and white daishiki is great for the summer. Its 100% cotton and light weight. Now this is one size fits all, however I am super petite and skinny so it fit like a dress on me. the cotton material is very thin so I wore a tank and a pair of jean shorts underneath.  There are several stores you can order a daishiki from make sure to check out the link.

Clutch & Sunglasses

  • Clutch (Similar): Purchased fro Charming Charlie online for $6.99. This clutch is amazing for the summer it adds a pop of color to basic or printed outfits. The fringe gives it a fun 70’s feel. The clutch is deep enough for your phone keys, wallet, lipstick and a pair of shades. The material is faux leather very easy to wipe off to clean it. The bag is no longer available online however check your local store its there for $14.99.
  • Sunglasses (similar): O by Oscar de la Renta. Purchased from TJMaxx for $10. I love the reflective colors of blues purples and oranges with a tinge of gold to add some extra spice. Great for the summer!
