Outfit of The Day

 

One thing I like working at Kohl’s on the weekend is the fact we can wear jeans and any shirt except for graphic tees.  Because VA weather in October is bipolar and some days it gets hot and other days are cold.  That’s why now I’m feeling a little sick because of this weather. I wanted to share a little bit of what I usually wear on the weekends. My style is very unique and simple.  I don’t always follow the fashion trend out here just because I like my own style and I’m very content with that.  Today I am wearing a black and pink hoodie I got from Rainbow Shops in Williamsburg, VA a couple of weeks ago that has Faith on the front and back as well.  

I love inspirational hoodies and shirts because it makes me feel good.  My outfit costs less than $80 and sometimes you have to learn how to shop smart without going over your budget!

My high top converses came from Kohl’s when they had the 35 percent off for associate shop.  I ended up paying probably less than thirty dollars for them.  I love these shoes because of the colors and the fact that these are my very first high-tops with converses.  All my other ones are low tops.  The jeans I had for years and years and believe it or not, they still fit! LOL.  I didn’t put the jewelry to go along with it, but I will be wearing silver hoop earrings and no necklace only because of how the neck is set up on the hoodie.

Lip Stick Colors That Will Get You in the Halloween Spirit

This post is for all my beauty bloggers, beauty lovers and those who just love anything that’s beauty related! Happy Halloween to each and everyone of you!  I want to share some of these hot colors that can be worn for Halloween…or anytime really if you are really bold enough to wear these colors.  This purple metallic color  is called “Two Faced” that can be purchased at Nordstrom Rack. It is a throwback Metallic Lipstick. 

NYX Professional has always been one of my favorite brands for make up.  I wear their eyeliner, eye shadow and eyebrow liner products.  I haven’t really tried their lipsticks yet, but I will be trying it soon, especially this color which can be worn almost everyday if you dare to be gold! It has that matte finish to it which doesn’t fade or anything.  This color is called “Goaldigger”  I like that name because I am always trying to achieve all my goals every month and every year!

This color is from the Pretty Zombie Cosmetics Line.  I’m not really a big fan of this color, but it is perfect for Halloween and for parties in general.  If you decide that you would like to wear it out, you are very BOLD!

I found this image on Pintrest and thought this was really awesome! I like the ombre mixed color, but I don’t think I can wear a two-toned color out in public, but for this special day, I think I could pull it off.  This color is called Indigo Summer.

I definitely love this color! This reminds me of a lipstick I have at home which is by the “The Balm” Brand and the color I have is called “Adoring” This matte color can go good with just about everything!

Another Bold combination of colors for Halloween.  I like the dark colors more because it goes better with my complexion.  Most basic colors to wear for Halloween are bold like dark reds, plums, greens, and some blacks.  Whatever colors you decide to wear, be Bold and be You!

Monthly Obsessions Part Two

On my last post of monthly obsessions, I showed you guys some cool purchases I made at Kohl’s.  Now I want to share with you guys in this post a purchase I made at one of my favorite stores called Rainbows.  The prices are awesome and the quality of the clothing is decent.  You just really have to know how to shop for good bargains.  And to be honest, not all the quality of clothing is great.  The brands I normally shop for is On Fire which I have to wear a medium because some of the tops run a little small.  I get at least a year of wearing out of the tops I buy for there which is decent because I try to keep all of my tops and sweaters over a year.  It gives me a great reason to not shop as much.  

$10.99

I’m a huge fan of graphic tees and hoodies and when I see them at Rainbows, I try to get them when I see them, but to be honest, my closet is packed enough so I can’t really buy anymore right now. LOL But it was between this hoodie and another one that was gray and pink that had Faith written on the front and back.  But of course i ended up buying both of them.  The Rainbows at Williamsburg Premium Outlets only been there for a month and it was much bigger than the one I normally go.  I just like the colors and the dripping lips which makes this hoodie stands out.  I will probably wear it with my rip jeans and either vans or converse.

I did ended up purchasing the other hoodie as well because the other Rainbow might not have carried it and I don’t plan to go back to the mall anytime soon.  Now I am completely set on my fall gear and I don’t need need any any more clothes for the remainder of the year! (at least I hope I don’t buy anymore.  They have cute graphic sweat shirts as well)

Monthly Obsession: Tis the Season of Boot Season!

So this is my first time ever writing about a monthly obsession and I can honestly say that I have more than one.  We all that one thing that we are obsessed over and whether we can’t afford it at the present moment or can’t eat it at the present moment, we have a plan to get what we want! Sounds familiar?

As for me, I’ve been more of the “go-getter” type in anything that I want, whether it’s a new eye shadow palette or a new phone case for my phone (I am actually proud of myself because I just upgraded my phone and I haven’t purchased a whole lot of phone cases) This month or shall I say the last couple of months I have been obsessing over a few things.  The first item is a pair of combat leopard and plaid print boots I ordered online at Rainbow Shops.

One thing about me is that I don’t tend to follow the latest trend or style because I create my own trend and style! My taste is rather unique and I like to go outside the box just a little to see if I can pull it off! When I first saw these boots online in my promotions email, I knew right then and there that I had to have these cute combat boots! You can say that I am a big fan because I have two other pair of combat boots at my house.  A pair of pink waterproof converse and some Candies combat boots from Kohl’s Department Stores.  It just started getting a little cold where I’m at in Virginia, so I will have plenty of opportunities to wear these boots.  I was thinking of wearing them with a solid denim collared shirt and mild accessories.

What do you guys think about that combination? And be honest! lol. I don’t bite! LOL I purchase a lot of my plaid button down shirts from Kohl’s since I’ve been working there for the last eight years and the discounts are great!  With my associate discount and other discounts we can stack on top of that I sometimes be racking up! There are other obsessions that I have, but I want to save that for my next blog post which will be a continuation.  I can’t wait to share with you all what I’ve been obsessing over! Until then take care and don’t forget to hit that follow/submit button to keep updated of all my blog posts.

Wal-Mart Picks up Possible Cosmetics for Online Selling

Possible Cosmetics is growing each and every day! CEO and Owner Renata Roundtree is making major moves within her company and plans to expand larger into retail stores all over the globe.  Move over MAC and Clinique, Possible Cosmetics will soon be taking over!

IMG_3371

TRGB Media: It’s been a few months since TRGB has interviewed you about your success and beauty line Possible Cosmetics. Since then, what have you been up to?

Renata Roundtree: Oh Honey lol SO much! I think the BIGGEST thing that We’ve been up to is FINALLY getting into Major Retail! Im too excited of course we’ll discuss this more 🙂

TRGB Media: Congratulations on Possible Cosmetics being apart of Wal-Mart online. What was your reaction?

Renata Roundtree: Honestly, lol I still can’t process it, I’ve been secretly going back and forth with Walmart for a long time. I didn’t tell anyone because I really wasn’t sure the outcome! In fact, they denied me first but I literally called, emailed (and Walmart is actually impossible to reach) I did not take NO for an answer! There’s still LOTS of work to do but we’re in there!

TRGB Media: How has sales and marketing been going? Do you have a team that helps you push sales or are you the only one?

Renata Roundtree: Let’s just say I’m not a Millionaire yet lol… I do have a virtual assistant that helps when need be. However, the bulk of the marketing and sales are driven by me or by other channels that I use. Social media has been a big help but I absolutely plan to have a team to help me plan and execute better. Marketing to be honest is my weakness I actually hate it lol

IMG_3370

TRGB Media: Let’s talk about current and future projects. Are you working on anything exciting?

Renata Roundtree: Yes. We are gearing up to hit a MAJOR retailer in Atlanta!!! Everyone knows that ATL is my second home. I can’t announce it just yet, but 1st Quarter 2019 Possible Cosmetics will be in stores in Atlanta GA!!!

TRGB Media: Also, I see that you are the guest speaker for Dreams to Founder Workshop and one of the panel spotlights for Glambitious. Tell us more about that.

Renata Roundtree: Yes, Im EXTREMELY excited to be apart of these events! One thing about me is I enjoy the empowerment portion of business. I like it more then selling Cosmetics lol I was born for it I have a radiant personality I can capture almost any audience I’m in front of and I have a story to tell. I’m serious when I say empowerment is so much more fulfilling to me, I’d much rather be doing these sorts of events more often!

TRGB Media: Are you still teaching young professionals how to start their own make up line? How has that been going?

Renata Roundtree: Yes, I actually just launched our digital course “ How to start a cosmetic line 101” on our website! That’s another thing that I enjoy.  Its selling pretty good and I take pride in helping someone establish a business! I’m a believer that you are able to share the information you have, especially within your community!

image3 (3)

TRGB MEDIA: Does Possible Cosmetics have any new products in store?

Renata Roundtree: We actually just launched our pressed shimmer powders!! The customers are responding to those very well and I’m getting amazing feedback!

TRGB Media: How many years have you been in business?

Renata Roundtree: Well, I started this business journey in 2010 with designing custom shoes! I must admit at that time I had NO idea what I was doing. Lol I just knew I was gifted to create sells, Instagram ads; all those other things didn’t click to me yet until I started Possible Cosmetics in 2016! I’m a much better business owner now.

TRGB Media: What are some unique things that Possible Cosmetics offers that no other make up line offers?

Renata Roundtree: I don’t really see other makeup lines sharing their “secrets” here at Possible Cosmetics. We not only sell you a product, but we sell you information as well.  We also educate you to start your own business. So I’ll say the empowerment part is what is different about us!

TRGB Media: What is next in store for you and your business?

Renata Roundtree: RETAIL, RETAIL AND MORE RETAIL.  We WILL BE in every major retailer in America; I don’t care if it take me forever! We are planning a Possible Cosmetics TAKEOVER. We will be mentioned with the household names like MAC, Loreal, Este Lauder, Cover Girl etc…

TRGB Media: How can readers connect with you and purchase products?

Renata Roundtree: They can purchase our wonderful products along with our Courses at www.Possiblecosmetics.com also on walmart.com put *Possible Cosmetics* in the search bar 🙂

New Fashion Trend Pyper’s Collection Brings Plenty of Chic and Style

Fashion has always been changing the game with new trends all over the world, nationally and internationally.  But there is one person who is taking her business to the top and that is Pyper Collection! She is a game changer with lots of taste and fashion trends for both men and women.  O taste and see that Pyper’s Collection will have you begging for more!

 

TRGB Media: How did you get into the fashion industry? Was it something that motivated you to branch out and try it?

Pyper Collection: My love for clothes. Reconstruction has always been interesting to me since I was young. After finding out Alabama offer a fashion apparel program I  started my journey. I came to college as a pre-med major but an old friend was a fashion major. She would always have me to do her projects and I enjoyed doing them so I decided to change my major and follow my dream.

TRGB: So, you graduated from the University of Alabama. How did college prepare you for what you wanted to do?  By having a concentration in apparel and textile help your visual skills?

Pyper: The program was great and fairly smaller than the other classes on campus. I enjoyed the intimacy. The variety of courses required put the lifestyle of the fashion industry in perspective for me. When I graduated I felt confident in moving forward in the industry and pursuing a career.

TRGB: Why did you choose this particular industry for your career?

Pyper: My love for beauty and fashion! My family’s brand is also a beauty brand so it was ideal.

TRGB: Tell me about the family business, Salon Lisa Brown. How long have you been working there as a hair stylist?

Pyper: The salon has been open for 7 years now. I worked as a shampoo assistant at the age of 17, went off to school and worked on weekends until I graduated. I then became a junior stylist for a year and was recently promoted to senior stylist and salon supervisor.

TRGB: When starting the fashion retail business, what were your goals and visions for your business?

Pyper: I want to build an empire. My goal was to be affordable but fashion forward. “pypercollection” is a lifestyle brand. I want everyone to be able to shop and be apart of the collection, even the dogs. (We do offer doggy apparel as well)

TRGB: Did you have a business and marketing plan?

Pyper: My publicist went to school with me and happens to be my best friend. She had plans to expand via social media. We recently flooded social media on my release of the collection which fell on my birthday. The idea came from my sister, Chyna. We created a countdown to create anticipation and now we are 86 days in.

TRGB: How did the creation and birth of “Pyper Collection” came about?

Pyper: My name is Pyper so originally it was going to be “Pyper”. I wanted a retail store and needed something catchy but ever-lasting. “pypercollection” was given to me by my mom. I admit it had to grow on me but now I love it.

TRGB: Tell us more about the Closet Collection. How did you determine which collection gets what?

Pyper: The closet collection is a super great deal, I recommend it to any one looking for fashionable things at an affordable price. The items in the closet belong to one of my family members and either has never been worn or worn one. If you think about it people wear the clothes in your favorite store all the time. Being in the retail industry taught me that. So it is consignment, but high fashion.

TRGB: How was the Chyna and Phillip collection transcribed?

Pyper: They are my two siblings and family is everything to me. Chyna is my manager and my brother has a t-shirt line called “#Details” so when I came up with the business I wanted them to be a part of it.

TRGB: How long have you been in business?

Pyper: 86 days, almost three months.

TRGB: When it comes to choosing the pieces and look for your fashion collection, what was your motivation? How did you create the look? What was the motivation behind it?

Pyper: The first collection was inspired by nature and traveling the world. It is called the “butterflycollection”. I use my mentor/seamstress Sonia and myself to create the items.

TRGB: Have any pieces of the collection been modeled in fashion shows or events?

Pyper: Not yet, but definitely keep an eye open for us on the runway.

TRGB: Any future projects/events coming up?

Pyper: Yes, we have winter community service events. I love giving back. We also will be hosting pop up shops at your favorite stores.

TRGB: What is next for Pyper Collection?

Pyper: More to come. We will expand and begin to add more as we grow. We are going global this fall and expanding to other countries. I vision my brand as being a fortune 500 company. We also are looking forward to being on the runway for NYFW. It’s all in God’s plan.

TRGB: How can readers connect with you and shop?

Graphic Designer Tyra Grayson is on the Rise to a Creative Stardom!

” Very eager, motivated, determined, caring, and loving,”

is how Tyra describes herself.

What do you call a bomb creative direction with style and great fashionable taste? 

Tyra Grayson, the next superstar to stardom in the graphic design business!  It’s not just her whit or her just holding a camera and telling a music artist to pose or a model to hold a specific prop, but it’s about her creativeness and unique taste for photography! 

38636670_1762899300430659_7919305977357139968_n

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Tyra is attending Full Sail University online majoring in Graphic Design.  With diving into the creative side for only one year, she has accomplished so much with her work.  Opportunities came knocking real fast as she has already had the pleasure of shooting local models and artists and doing graphic designs for music artists and businesses to help manage and build up her brand. Everyone has to start from somewhere in life to become who they want to be in their passion.

 “I started off learning how to print t-shirts with my granddad, he taught me how to design the shirt before printing it. I got fascinated with the design process and started using Photoshop. He also told me to use his camera and try to do something with it, and the rest is history. I was a rapper before this, so I owe it all to him for introducing me to this, he was also a musician, so the creativity flowed in the family.”

Tyra has shot for artists such as Moneybagg Yo, Rich Homie Quan and Boosie Badazz.

Boosie Badazz

Photography has its own art of style, but what Tyra is known for best is her vintage style of photography.  She uses different locations and props such as smoke bomb and masks to execute her style of portraits.  One of her biggest accomplishments was designing her first mixtape; front and back for Birmingham artist YF Tadoe called “No Investors”

 

“I see myself being the biggest designer, photographer, and creative director in the music industry. Working with companies such as Atlantic Records, IHeartRadio, Spotify, as well as working with Grammy-award winning artists.”

 

 

FB_IMG_1535232522204

She has created her own lane and her own name for herself; TGDShotIt or TGD branching out for different opportunities and many more to come.  Everyone has something or someone to keep them motivated and humbled while achieving their goals and dreams.

“Anyone who has helped me with a photography project. My friends, family, other creatives, and the thought that if I ever gave up on this, that’s one less creative that someone may need. So I always wake up motivated with the thought that an artist or business may need my services and that I have the chance to get better.”

Someday she plans to collaborate with award-winning artists such as Troye Sivan, Khalid, Ariana Grande, Twenty-One Pilots, Kevin Gates, Drake and more.  She is on the rise to a creative stardom!

Whatz in Oneika’s Closet!

It’s not about brand, it’s about Style”

This quote is so true. People get so caught up in all these brand name clothing and going broke. When you can take something old and make it look like it cost just as much as that Big name brand that your chasing. I never been caught up and wanting that Tommy Hilfiger, Louis Vuitton or that Chanel bag. Just wasn’t raised like that.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s nothing wrong with these items but don’t go broke trying to keep up with the Jones’s because they are broke. Trust me I would love to get some of these items but I’m all about living for what I have in my pockets! I’m not about trying to impress others with some high end garments, but will impress you with inexpensive pieces with my STYLE.

I will walk into a store and go to that sale and clearance rack in a minute. Just like these checkered black & white high waist pants from Rue21 for $9. I love a awesome deal and can find some big name brand items mentioned before in a Thrift Store with tags on them as well. So brands are great for the right price at your local Thrift Store 😀. This entire outfit is under $50!

Captivating in Kate

Emjay-blue and white dress side view
Every girl should have a timeless piece or two in her closet. Quality over quantity is a great
fashion practice to follow. You’ll find that you’ll love on your clothes more. You’ll also learn to
get more resourceful and creative with the items stocked in your closet.
Kate Spade (gone too soon) is well known for her dresses, shoes, hand bags and accessories that
provide a crisp perfect finish. This fit and flare “holiday” dress is from a collection of Kate’s that
is at least two years old. Even in today’s world of Fashionista, this dress turns heads, for sure.
Who knew stripes could be so stunning? It’s great for a wedding, a dance, or a dinner. But darlin’!–
You can also dress this number down a bit. Paired with a basic nude or black pump, it is perfect worn as
your Sunday’s best.
A fit and flare dress is a flattering piece because it gives the appearance of an hour-glass shape. Women
of all shapes and sizes enjoy the cinched waist as the flared part of the dress drapes over the lower parts of
the body. I hope you enjoy this look.
