#RockportChallenge: Lunchbreak + {Giveaway}

Today was a beautiful day to get out and enjoy a lunch break with the fam. For some reason, I've been wanting to eat at Ruby Tuesday's since they have pretty good burgers (and who doesn't love their endless salad bar). It was also a great day to wear my new Rockport Garden Court Perf Wedges.

Official Made in America Lineup

The official Made in America Festival lineup is here announcing Beyoncé and The Weeknd as the headliners! I love how every year there's an interesting mix of artist to attract all kinds of people. I'm surprised Beyoncé is headlining again, but I'm definitely not complaining. I'm also a little surprised there is no mention of Nicki Minaj, especially since she has songs with Bey and her "relationship" and music with Meek Mill, but I won't be surprised if she makes an appearance. As for our lineup predictions we only got 2 right: Meek Mill and The Weeknd. Oh well, can't win them all.

What do you think of the lineup and will you be in attendance?

NYC New York Color Matte Lip Color Review

NYC new york color

I recently received four colors of the New NYC New York Expert Last Lip Color Matte Collection and I am obsessed!!! I've tried some matte lipsticks in the past that were very dry, sometimes so dry, that you may have to prep your lips with a lip balm before applying the lipstick. These however are really smooth and pigmented, which I love! They are also long lasting which means they're perfect for hitting up those bar-b-ques and looking good.

How to Get the Perfect Beach Waves

Lately, I've been loving my Show Beauty Premiere Working Texture Spray. It's lightweight, non sticky, and holds the look of my hair all day adding volume and movement. To style my hair, I begin the night before by cornrow my hair into 2 or more sections, depending on how many waves I want. In the morning, I take out my braids, finger comb the waves out, then add the Show Beauty Premiere Working Texture Spray. Lastly, I scrunch my hair with my fingers to add more texture and volume. It literally takes me about 5 minutes and I'm ready to go! You can find this and more Show Beauty products, now available at Sephora including their Chestnut Street location in Philadelphia.
