Arcade Style.

Hey Nubians, 

The other day I was roaming around Circus Circus Las Vegas Casino and decided to stroll around their Adventure Dome which was super fun. They have free mini circus shows going on all day and they're way better than I had expected. They also have a bunch of street carnival games... you know, the ones that have you thinking "How the hell are none of these rings going around the bottle!" ha, fun nonetheless. I spent a few moments playing some arcade games and air hockey too. Definitely a chill place to pass by if you're in the mood for this kind of stuff. 


Since I knew off the bat I wanted to have a fun day but be comfortable and stylish at the same time I had to dress appropriately for the occasion. I decided to show some leg because it's been very hot lately and through on a stretchy American Apparel skirt. For mu top I went with a fun and funky Marilyn Monroe tee! I really love this tee and it always gets complimented because it's so unique. It was a gift from my sister-in-law from Thailand. I decorated my feet with with some fresh Nike sneakers and socks. Lastly, every outfit could also be topped of with a good cat eye right? The ones I'm sporting are from Liz Claiborne.

Amanda Murphy for Numero August 2014 by Greg Kadel.

Hey Nubians,


I've really been into this editorial lately of Amanda Murphy for French Numéro Magazine August 2014 shot by Greg Kadel. It kind of makes me think of fantasy art brought to life and the styling by Bill Mullen is crazy good.

The story around this editorial is the play between animals and humanity. A lot of the details from the outfits and the headpieces are inspired by exotic animals. I love that the scaffolding in some of the outfits add a bit more depth and dimension to the photographs. The colors and prints also make everything pop out more, especially photos where the outfit and backdrop contrast. The wings add a nice dark element as do the sculptured shoulder pads, studded choker necklaces and dramatic headpieces with medusa-ish vibes.

It looks like a mystical, enchanting, sci-fi dream come to life in this months Numéro Magazine editorial. The straight-forward style in which the photos were shot make them all the more stunning. Check it out below.

NYX Cosmetics Macaron Lippie Lipstick Review + Swatches.

Hello my beautiful Nubians,

You all know I'm obsessed with lipsticks right? Makeup can be so much fun! I like to live a little and try something bold and a little crazy every so often and that's why I love the NYX Cosmetics Macaron Lippie Lipsticks. Bright purples, blues, turquoise, black, yellows, pink.... so many not so everyday colors that you can get creative with.


I find a lot of people get scared when trying these colors out but don't be! Life should be all about trying new things and putting yourself out there even with makeup, go for it. Plus these colors all have a beautiful satin matte finish which doesn't hurt.

Below you'll see me review my 2 favorite colors from the NYX Macaron Lippie Lipstick collection as of yet, Blue Velvet and Violet.
