Sister love and fashion. 

December is here, can you believe it?? This month is the perfect time to spend time with family. I love quality time, with work and life getting into the way, quality time doesn’t happen as often as it should. Hello everyone! Today my sister, my husband and I have teamed up to bring you this fun little shoot. A little fall fashion inspiration for you. Even though it is December, it’s still toasty in California. We got all dolled up and went out and just went with it. We had so much fun taking these pictures! We hope that you enjoy them.

I would like to point out the fact that my husband took these photos. If you want to ask someone to take your photos for you, but not sure what they will say, just ask. They may surprise you, I never thought that he would even consider it. Not only did he take my pictures, but he slayyyedddd these photos. DONE!

Our hats are from Charlotte Russe. I love this photo, Sierra is so silly. Enjoy your sister if you have one. They may annoy the hell out of you, but they are your backbone. She makes me laugh and can make me cry at the same time. I can honestly say that she is my best friend. I couldn’t imagine a life without her. 

It wouldn’t be a photoshoot, if Brian’s Mustang wasn’t in it. If you have a man in your life that is obsessed with cars, then you will understand. #5.0

My top is from Torrid, this is seriously one of my favorite shirts. It’s so comfortable and easy to move in. I love my light washed denim shirt!Sierra’s top is a cute flow blouse from Forever 21. If you have ever shopped at Forever 21, then you know that it is very affordable. If you haven’t made your way there yet, then you should. There is a wide selection of styles and price ranges. I couldn’t find the shirt on the site, but you should still go take a look!  

Remember to enjoy life, smile and relax. Don’t stress over something that isn’t worth it. I learned that the hard way. Besides, it’s way more fun to be worry free.

I would like to thank my baby sister for being featured in my post, and my husband for taking my photos. I love you both from the bottom of my heart. 

Fall Makeup Look 🍁

     Can you feel the fall weather? I can’t….but that’s because I live in California! Hello, you pumpkin spice latte! Since I can’t dress how I want, I might as well do my makeup the way I want… Right? So today I have collaborated with an amazing friend of mine, to bring you this Fall makeup look! Paige Alicia Beauty is one of my very good friends. I met her through the blogging community and she managed to work her way up to creating YouTube videos. 

     Make sure and check out Paige’s YouTube video. She is an amazing person and if you have an account, you should really subscribe to her channel. She posts fashion and beauty related videos every Friday, and they are pretty awesome, just saying. When you find yourself on her channel, make sure and let her know that I sent you! I will link her video right here

     Paige and I wanted to create a look with dark lips for you, then decided why not go all out! Go big or go home right? Here is my part of the Fall makeup collaboration, smoky eyes paired with a maroon lip. I love the way that it turned out. Her look came out sooo beautiful! The dark lips look so good with her blonde hair. 

     Anyway, on to the creativity! I used 2 different eyeshadow pallets and one single eyeshadow for this look. Like always I started out with my Mac Soft Ochre paint pot to prime for eyeshadow . In my crease I took the morphe 350 pallet and picked up the second shade up from the bottom row, on the right hand side. It’s defiantly a fall color. Like I said before and like I always say, BLEND! Blend that color in the crease like there is no tomorrow. 

     Once that is all blended, I am going to go in with Cranberry by Mac. I just keep blending, blend in the crease. Blending will never be done, I will blend until my hands cramp up! After that, I picked up the black shade from the Kat Von D, Shade and Light Eyes pallet. I packed that all over the lid and then started to slowly blend that up to the crease. Once that is all blended together, I am making sure to drag some of that black shade in the lower lash line. Then just popped a shimmer color in the inner corners of the eyes to make the look out more together. 

     Feel free to add some lashed to tie this look together, I chose not to because I am lazy. Now for the reason we are all really here, the lip color! Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania! Stunning color and couldn’t be more Fall appropriate! Feel free to line your lips, this deep of a color can get pretty messy and hard to clean up. 

     This look is completed! I am in love with the way that it turned out! Very vampy and Fall appropriate. Let me know what you think! Have you done a look like this before? If you have I would love to see it! If you recreate this look, make sure and tags me! I love you and hope that you stay awesome…….xoxo

Society+: Plus Size Clothes

Break the Rules

Hello to all of you beautiful people! My name is Kelsey Provencio and I have been chosen as a Society Plus #FashionFreedom Ambassador. Make sure and check out, where you will find the other 9 amazing blogging babes that are also a part of this beautiful campaign. Feel free to check out the #FashionFreedom page, where all of those beauties posts will be listed! 

My challenge as a #FashionFreedom Ambassador is to show off my legs. Today I am breaking three of these so called “fat girl rules”. I am showing off theses stems, wearing color AND wearing white. For as long as I can remember, I had been scared to try and rock any of those. I had been told that my legs were too big, I had been warned about wearing too much color or even putting on stripes. Doing any of these fashion trends would just make me “look bigger”. So, for the longest time, black was my go to color. It didn’t matter if I was in 100 degree weather, I would rather pass out from a heat stoke than even consider breaking any of these rules. Same look, different black shirt daily. 

One day, I just decided that I wanted to venture out of my comfort zone and try something new! I decided I’m not letting other people’s opinions dictate MY wardrobe. If I want to show off my legs or buy a bright green dress, I will. I want to be happy and self-confident and the only way that I could make this happen was if I didn’t care about these so called rules. From then on I have wore whatever I fell like, and let me just tell you, it feels amazing! I love shopping and discovering that they make tutu’s for women my size. 

am a strong believer that Society Plus is genius for creating #FashionFreedom. The thought of empowering women to be themselves is beautiful. I stand with them for the simple fact that they want us to feel as beautiful and confident as we are. If you want to wear a crop top, they are that voice in your head telling you to go for it. We are real women with a love for fashion and style. Why let anyone try to control how we look? As long as we know that we look good, no other opinion matters. I challenge you to break the rules. 

Show your legs, arms and tummy! Wear white, wear colors, stripes and patterns! Wear what you define as breaking the rules. Then, take a picture of yourself. I want you, no I dare you to share that confidence and beauty on Instagram or Facebook using the hash tags #FashionFreedom and #IamSocietyPlus. Take the next step to feeling comfortable in your own skin and be the Princess that you were born to be!

I would like to thank Society Plus for choosing me to be a part of this challenge. I would also like to thank them for encouraging me to dress how I feel and for creating amazing pieces, that not only boost my confidence, but also help me break the “fat girl rules”. Venturing out of my comfort zone, was one of the best decisions I have ever made. 

Love Yourself,
Bakersfield Beauty Blogger.
