Monday Must Haves: January 11, 2016

Happy Monday afternoon, friends! I know my blog is late but I had a job interview this morning. This is not the time or place to talk about that, but I'll just say it's not what I was expecting. Today is also a bit of a sad day, with the passing of music legend, David Bowie. So today's Monday Must Have's is all about being as fabulous as David was. 

Social Media: 

It's Men's Fashion Week in London right now and the collections have been so great! There's nothing I love more than seeing some of the things that people are going to be clamoring for in the next season. Some of my favorite shows to watch are always Burberry and Alexander McQueen. There is so much creativity that go into those shows and the designs influence more than British fashion. 

You can follow along with what's going on with Men's London Fashion Week on the British Fashion Council's Twitter: @BFC


To go along with Men's Fashion Week, the start of award season means the start of being able to see some great new designers and some old favorites, all dressing your favorite stars. After watching the Golden Globes last night the biggest trend I saw on the red carpet that I hope to see continue is all white dresses, and long cape-like trains. Some of my favorite dresses reminded me of Elsa, from Frozen, with their capes that were just long enough to twirl around like this 

And others were long and huge and fabulous like Darth Vader. 

So here's a few of my favorites from the night! 


One of my favorite makeup things to do, and my friends have started doing, is layering and mixing lipsticks. What I like to do most of the time is take a satin finish lipstick and layer it up with something matte. Doing this helps the color to stay longer and keeps your lips from drying out too much. I also like doing this because I am able to create colors that I don't already have in my collection. This morning I mixed the Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Chihuahua with the Rimmel Kate 107. What a perfect blushed nude color came from that! I'm always so impressed with what mixing lipsticks can do and I love the endless possibilities. 


My best friend, Emily, recently introduced me to a great new YouTube channel, InTheFrow. I can't get enough of Victoria's point of view on things. She's so great and I've taken a few tips from her for my own channel. 


Thank you for changing music, David Bowie. The world shines a little less without you. 


It's finally cold here in Jacksonville, and not that cold where it's still okay for flip flops. Cold like winter jacket cold. So there's nothing better on a winter night than taco soup for dinner. It's a one pot thing, so it's  an easy cleanup. It's great left over for work lunch the next day, and it's one of those meals that you can have cooking on the stove all day or throw together in 15 minutes and it still taste great! 


Well friends,  that's it for this weeks Monday Must Haves! Let me know if you try any of these things or have something you think I should try! Like this post if you've had a bad interview experience in the past few months too.
