Favorite Drugstore Foundations Summer 2016

"At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint, or even remember it. It is enough." ~ Toni Morrison

Hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! I recently picked up a new drugstore foundation and I got to thinking that I needed to share with you all my fave drugstore foundations. I also wanted to tailor it to theme of summer because wearing a full face of makeup in the summer can sometimes be a drag. Especially if you combo-oily skin like your girl here. You will definitely want something that is light coverage but definitely does the job and help with oil control. I figured I would share a few of my fave drugstore foundations that are great for the summer. 

A lot of beauty bloggers and YouTubers have raved about this product! It has a nice consistency and of course it is MATTE! Yes please!

I also like this one as well but wouldn't say that it is my all time favorite, It is not a matte foundation so I definitly make sure that I set with powder and that I bring it with me to touch up throughout the day. 

My third and final fave is definitely this one! It has medium coverage but it is buildable. I love it and I was able to easily find a color that suits me. That made me very happy considering that I am a woman of color and it can be a little tricky at times. I love the consistency and I don't have to do a lot of retouching throughout the day!

What drugstore foundation is YOUR fave? What is your skin type and how does your fave drugstore foundation work for you? I would love to know!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
