Hello World!!!! I hope that everyone has had a great work week and is looking forward to the weekend. As you all know St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow and I will be celebrating my Irish heritage. What are you all planning to do for St. Patrick's Day? So, I thought that I would share my St.Patrick's day dining room table decorations. So, where to begin, 90 percent of the items were purchased at the Dollar Tree. The only items that was purchased from other stores were the gold vase fillers, purchased at Hobby Lobby during Christmas and the table runner was made by yours truly. The fabric was purchased at Joann Fabrics some years ago and I finally got inspired to create something with it. Life of a sewer, lol!!! I also made the crystal handle holders as well as hand decorated the wine glasses. So here are some pictures to give you some ideas to get your St. Patty's day celebration started off right. Stay cool, chic and confident. Mikstang Living!!! HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!!

Top of the world fashionista's!!!!! This is just a mini clearance Ulta makeup haul and I wanted to share my goodies that I found for an amazing price. So lets get started with what I was most excited about, the NYX SEX BOMB eyeshadow pallet. These colors are amazing and can work for any day/night look. The original price for this pallet was $7.49, I got it for a steal of $1.47. Moving on to the concealer, which is an Ulta brand. I got this concealer in the color deep cool and the original price was $9.00, I scooped this baby up for $2.29. The next eyeshadow pallet was entitled Sweet and Shimmer. The original price was $4.99, I got for a $1.97. Last but not least, I picked up two CELESTIAL Chrome Lip Toppers, the first color is Stardusk 19 and the second one is Rose Comet 20. Can you believe that the original price was $7.99 and I only paid $0.97 a piece for both. If I had purchased this products at the original price my totaled would have been $37.46 plus tax. My GRAND total came to $7.14 that is tax included, in which my total saving was $30.32. I can honestly say, I think that I scored a great deal. So don't be afraid to shop the clearance section for makeup, you may find some deals. So until stay chic, cool and confident. Mikstang Living!!!

Hello World and Fashionista's out there. Here is a quick and easy look for any of you looking for inspiration to wear to the new Black Panther movie. For this look, my main focus was the color black. I actually took these photos last year but never uploaded them. So, on to the look, The turban that I am wearing is a 1 yard piece of knit spandex fabric. The necklace was purchased at Versona. (they have amazing earrings and accessories).  My earrings were purchased at a beauty supply store.My jeans are from belk, boots are from 2 years ago and my shirt was purchased a year ago. This jacket a purchase many years ago, but I'm quite sure you can find something at Charlotte Russe, Express or Forever 21. I focused my inspiration for this outfit around my leopard turban and everything else fell into place. My black lipstick is from Black Radiance in the color black and can be purchased at Walmart and Target for $1.99. Don't be afraid to pucker up your lips with ebony color. BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL, BLACK IS BOLD!!!!! So until next time, stay cute, chic and cool. MIKSTANG LIVING.
