Lola Rocks The Velvet

Hello again!

After a two month absence, I'm back! Fall has been insane for us: we've been trying to buy a home, keep up with businesses, fam and friends, and blogging definitely fell to the back burner. But...I wanted to share some of the awesome velvet looks we have in our store, Lola Rocks Clothing.

I fell in love with these velvet dresses when they arrived. They are multi size, regal, and comfortable.

These leggings have been selling incredibly well, Probably because they are a nice fit, and only $12 shipped in the US.

I'm in love with these plus size velvet mini dresses.

Crazy Cat Lady Dress

Hi Again!

Happy first day of October! I hope your Monday is treating you well.

Last Saturday, Sophie, Aron, my mom, and me visited the Riverside Arts Market in Jacksonville. It was a rad market full of art, food trucks, and produce. I wanted to wear the dress that my store, Lola Rocks Clothing, received from Sourpuss this week. I'm usually not one for light pastels, but this dress is covered in vintage style kitty illustrations. Yes, guys, a dress covered in adorable kitties. How could I resist?

My beautiful little Sophie wanted to get in on the picture taking. 
The market is open every Saturday, and is located under the Fuller Warren Bridge. At first thought, it seemed like an odd location. But, it keeps you mostly out of the blazing Florida sun, so it works for me. 

We walked around, had lunch, and Aron hunted for jam and bread to take home. We were all pretty overheated by the end of the trip (it was in the 90s that day), but it was fun nonetheless. Sophie had a blast, because we bought her a bubble gum flavored SnowBall.

I almost forgot to share a picture of the kitty that has made me a Crazy Cat Lady, yet again. Her name is Shadow, or Shadow Buns, as I like to call her.

Lola Rocks Clothing's Spooky Stuff-Part 1

Hi again, 

It's finally Fall, guys! Must be the season of the wiiitttcchhhh....and pumpkin spice....and Uggs. Ok, forget the Uggs, but Halloween time is my fave. It's still hotter than hell here in North Florida, but I started putting out my Halloween decorations two weeks ago. Yes, in early September. Fight me, bruh. 

I'm a year long lover of black clothing and spooky things. But, I like to ramp up my business's spooky stock this time of year. I'm going to share with you some of my favorite Lola Rocks Clothing spooky stuff!(More spooky stuff to follow next month)

These Sourpuss goodies!

Makeup Favorites

Hello again, 

Today I'm sharing some of my fave makeup products with you guys!

Before I start, let me say I'm usually not very adventurous when it comes to my makeup. For years, I was stuck on a retro/pinup look, and I wouldn't do my eye makeup without lining my upper lid with liquid liner. My life is a bit hectic these days, and I have no time to create a perfect cat eye on a daily basis. So I've settled into this 5 minute makeup look.

This lovely palette by Tarte inspired me to write this post. Behold...ALL. THE. GLITTER. Keep reading to see what's inside....

First, I use Elf BB Creme. It's very inexpensive, and goes on a bit thick at first because of the sunscreen. But once it soaks into my skin, it's perfect. 

Next, I use Make-Up Forever's Full Cover Concealer. It's one of the few concealers that will disguise my dark under eye circles AND doesn't settle into my wrinkles. 

To set my look and even out my skin, I use NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat. On it's own, it's not quite the coverage I'm looking for, but with BB cream it is perfect. 

I usually use whatever light bronzer I have lying around to do a light contour under my cheekbone. I found this Lorac bronzer at TJMaxx and it works great. 

For blush, I use this Wet n Wild Coloricon blush in Pink. My package is currently broken to bits, so I'm using a stock photo, lol. It's a beautiful, pinky peach with a bit of shimmer. 

Speaking of Wet n Wild, I'm digging these cheap little makeup brushes I found at Five Below. 

Soooooo... here is the inside of that lovely Tarte pallete. It is named Love, Trust, & Fairy Dust. I purchased it online from Sephora as a birthday gift to myself. The colors I use the most are Giggle, Whimsical, Flitter, and Gossamer. It's not a glitter explosion as the packaging might suggest. I find these colors very wearable, and romantic. 

I have non existent eyelashes, and have a tough time finding a rad mascara. Soap and Glory's Thick & Fast Extensions Effect Mascara was my favorite until I discovered Thrive's mascara via a Facebook Ad. I know, it's lame as hell, but I'm a sucker for a good Facebook Ad. Thrive mascara doesn't smear or run in the Florida heat and humidity. It is a buildable mascara with little fibers to make your lashes look awesome. 

I like to give my brows a bit of definition and color, and NYX's Tinted Brow Mascara in Brunette works well for me. 

Finally, onto lipstick. I don't have time for lipstick touch ups during the day, so I like a rosey liquid lip that I can put on and forget about. I've been using Sephora's Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick, and it works well for me. But, I have read that not all Sephora brand products are all cruelty-free, and I am working on moving all of my beauty products in that direction. So, I will be on the hunt for another great liquid lipstick. 
The first swatch is Vintage Rosewood, the second is Marvelous Mauve. 

Last, but certainly not least, is this NYX Setting spray. It works as well, if not better, than the more expensive brands.

Well, here are a couple of pictures of my mug with a full face of the above makeup.

Shawna's Birthday Jam

Hi Again!

It's Monday, yo. I'm currently knee deep in comic book inventory, but a few weeks ago I was having a blast with my best friends. 

Late last month, went out to celebrate my best friend Shawna's birthday. August in Florida is scorching hot, so I opted for a dress, loose kimono, and sandals ensemble.
 Kimono: Ross
Dress: Old Torrid
This is before I found a new place to take photos. The mermaid boobs upstaged me every time!
We Ubered to downtown St Augustine, hung out at Scarlett O'Haras,and drank adult beverages. 
Fun fact: Shawna and Misti are sisters, and I am best friends with them both. I've known them since I was 16 years old. This only child does have two rad sisters. 

Thanks for stopping by!
