Hurricane Sandy Relief

3 Nov

Hello Lovers,

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy there are many emotions that people are going through. Sadness, despair, loss, helplessness and hardship are included in those emotions. There is also thanks, gratitude, love and a sense of being blessed that many are feeling. It is hard to decide what direction to move toward as we try and put pieces of our lives back together, but we just having the desire and fortitude is the first step. In the aftermath, while conversing with my sorority sisters, we all felt an overwhelming need to help. We were looking for how we could help and were only finding places that wanted monetary donations. But we wanted to do more than just give money, this is our home and our neighbors that have been affected. We decided to be proactive and help locally as much as we can. So we are collecting gently used clothes, toiletries, toys and household items to donate to families. We are asking anybody who knows a family in need to contact us. If we don’t get any lists of families within a week or so, we will be bringing all donations to a major group or organization.

There is a need right now, not only to repair and replace what has been lost, but also to share information. The Sisters of Sigma Iota Sigma Multicultural Sorority Inc are asking you to please tell us if you know of a worthy organization collecting these items, looking for hands on volunteers or a family that is in need, that information would be greatly appreciated.Ā  We have Sisters in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, the Bronx, Westchester and Albany that you can contact if you know people in need. You can email any sister from the list below:
Kimberly Mitchell – Long Island (Suffolk County) – kcamitchell@gmail.com

Tiffany Clemmings – Long Island (Suffolk County) – tiffanyclemmings@gmail.com

Brendaliz Capellan – Brooklyn – Brendaliz.capellan30@gmail.com

Teazia Vincent – Westchester – teaziavincent@gmail.com

Thank you for reading and I will be praying for everybody’s safety and well being.

Hello Hue Lovers!!

Today’s post is dedicated to the brand Mytee B.A.D. (myteebad.com). I have posted about this brand in the past, with a look inspired by their Tripe L bracelet Tuesday Tip: Be Inspired!!. In thatt post I focused on the “Live” bracelet in the Triple L set and today I am doing a look inspired by the “Love” Bracelet in the set. This bracelet is adorable and the perfect way to represent ‘love’.Ā  It is a hand beaded bracelet with gorgeous colors like pink, fuchsia and purple. It has skulls, which we all know are huge right now and it has a silver medallion that reads “love”. I wear this bracelet often for a nice pop of color in my daily arm candy.

I decided to create 3 looks for this bracelet because I felt that “love” would deserve more than just one! I went with an editorial look first by having a simple eye and some heart focused lip art. This was definitely something fun just for pictures, but unfortunately not something I could wear out and maintain. The next two looks are very similar, the main difference being that one is more purple and fuchsia based while the other has a bit more pink in it. These looks are definitely wearable for a fall first date or a night out with your sweetheart. All three looks feature my top 3 favorite Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic liptars; Belladonna (Ultra Violet) Black Dahlia (Blackest Blackened Red or Blood Red) and Anime (Bright Neon Fuchsia/Pink). In the first look liptars are used to feature a Black Dahlia heart, while in the second look I mixed the colors to create the perfect fall plum darkened at the corners with Sugarpill’s Bulletproof pressed eyeshadow.

The Love bracelet gave me the opportunity to express my love for a few things in one shot! I used liptars that I will not hesitate to say I am in love with. They are amazing to work with and the colors are to die for.Ā  My all time favorite color is purple and you can see that I put it everywhere I could in this look. Along with my OCC liptars, I used shadows from Sugarpill Cosmetics and Inglot Cosmetics. These three companies are my favorite makeup companies and it was great to use them in a look representing love.

What are some products or companies that you love? What is your go-to product for a date?

I hope you all enjoy this look and thanks for reading šŸ™‚ Remember….
