Coin Laundry

I always pass by this awesome looking old school coin laundry in Miami and every time I pass it, I get ideas on shooting a look there. The plan last night was to go to the Wynwood Arts District, which is like a super hip, artsy neighborhood so I thought my look last night was perfect to shoot at the laundromat.

Here’s last night’s look:

BROKEN Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette

Hey babes!

I really wanted this post to be a review and demo of the new ABH Prism Palette, but this palette arrived broken in the mail. This is so disheartening because this is the SECOND broken palette I received from the Anastasia Beverly Hills brand this year.

ABH is usually great about their packaging but I noticed right away that the box they used to ship the new prism palette didn’t have the usual shredded paper stuffing to protect the palette.

Watch the full video:

Here is the first broken palette I got, this video got so much hate saying my reaction was fake but it was literally how I felt at the time. I was actually in shock.

If you tried the new ABH Prism Palette, let me know what you think about it in the comments below!

SEPTEMBER 2017 BOXYCHARM

OMG!! This was the best Boxycharm Unboxing I have ever done! If you’re new to my blog or channel, Boxycharm is a monthly beauty subscription box that gives you 5 FULL SIZE beauty products every month for about $20/month. I know some subscription boxes are a hit or a miss, sending things like cheap or sample size cosmetics or something in strange colors that you would never use. After getting Boxycharm for over 1 year, I have NEVER gotten a box I am unhappy with. To put thing in perspective, Ipsy is always a hit or miss for me and I’m not a fan of the sample size products, and Sephora PLAY! is a joke to me.

Here is a video comparing the 3 boxes:

Okay, so now let’s get to the September Boxycharm Unboxing:

I was happy with EVERY. SINGLE. THING. in my September Boxycharm, this ALWAYS happens though and I feel like their boxes just keep getting better and better!

Thank you for watching as always!

KKW Beauty Powder Contour Kit Review

Hi LadyCode!

I was so excited to take a break from makeup today because I have been filming almost every day this week, but my KKW Beauty Powder Contour Kit showed up in the mail so I knew I had to review it ASAP!

Here is my full review video on the channel:

I was pleasantly surprised with the formula and application, and the generous amount of formula that came with the palette this time. I loved having the large mirror on the palette too.

PROS:

There is a lot of product

The formula blends nicely

Mirror on palette

Pigmented and buttery

CONS:

The brush is terrible

There is a lot of fallout that spreads all over the palette when you dip your brush in it

Indie Beauty Expo 2017

Hey girlies!

If the Indie Beauty Expo sounds familiar to you, of course it’s because our very own Charlotte Trattner attended the event in Dallas and shared her experience right here on LadyCode!

I attended the Indie Beauty Expo in NYC as a speaker and I had so much fun! They gave me a HUGE bag of products from the vendors for showing up, and everything looks so amazing but there is no way I can try it all! I decided to add some things from the bag in my next big giveaway, and YOU get to pick what I include in it! Leave a comment with what you want from my video below:

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I’ve finally been catching up on sleep after a whirlwind of a summer.

 

MOSCHINO X SEPHORA COLLECTION

If you’re here you probably already know there is a Moschino x Sephora Collection giveaway happening on LadyCode!

This collection was an absolute NIGHTMARE to purchase. First of all, they delayed the launch date. THEN, they accidentally released the products online a day early, so by the time the ACTUAL launch date came around, everything was sold out.

The collection came out in stores on August 24th, which happened to be when I was in NYC for a convention. Of course I set my alarm and waited in LINE for my nearest Sephora in NYC to open, but I wasn’t early enough. I had to chase these bears down to get them for myself and of course extra for you!

BEAUTY ROOM//CLOSET TOUR 2017!

Hi dolls! I recently got a new apartment in Miami and now that I am finally settled in, I am doing my VERY requested beauty room tour in my new place!

You can watch the entire video glam room tour here:

 

Wall storage system: ALGOT System from IKEA. This system cost me about $200. Installation is very easy the and entire system is super customizable! I love utilizing vertical space to organize my smaller spaces. The hangers are also from Ikea and the wooden texture elevates the aesthetic of the exposed wardrobe.

CLICK HERE TO SHOP ALGOT WALL CLOSET pictured above.

The two photos above feature LACK shelving units from IKEA. I love these because they are functional yet aesthetically pleasing, and they are also very simple and easy to assemble. One lack shelf retails for $49.99. CLICK HERE to shop LACK shelves on IKEA. As you saw in my room tour video, I love using file organizers to vertically store my palettes. I purchased most of my acrylic makeup organizers from LadyMoss.

Another IKEA favorite is the MALM desk. This desk is sleek, slim to save space, and features a drawer that fits all of my office supplies and makeup. I purchased two MALM desks, one for my vanity and one for my work desk. This desk comes with the glass table topper included in the package, so you don’t need to purchase the topper separately like other IKEA products. This desk is on the pricy side at $169, but for is space-saving properties and chic visual appeal, I think it’s worth the price.

CLICK HERE TO SHOP THE MALM DESK ON IKEA

My fuzzy white stool paired with my vanity is from HomeGoods. I adore it because you can elevate it if needed, and it spins around for easy movement. I use it to film all of my YouTube videos.

 

My velvet curtains are from IKEA, and the dual curtain rod and sheer panel are from Home Depot. I purchased my office chair and mouse pad on Amazon.

My mini trash can and sequined cushion are from Five Below (YUP, $5!).

My floating shelf system for my shoe closet is from Home Depot. You can find this in the shelving section at your nearest hardware store. Each shelf cost about $7, and the suspension rod and shelf hooks are between $1-$3 each, so this shoe closet cost me no more than $60.

This hanging organizer is from Five Below as well. It has made my life SO much easier because I can just throw my earrings in a pocket when I am done wearing them. For $5, you can’t say no to this organizational life saver!

This is another essential to stay organized! Like I said before, utitlizing vertical space is KEY to maximizing small spaces. This over the door unit was actually a shoe organizer, but I but bottles of hair products, lotion, straighteners, and curling irons in them instead. This basically disappears when my door is open to conceal the clutter, but its also easily accessible if I need anything from this unit. You can find over the door organizers for affordable prices at your nearest department store.

I hope you enjoyed my room tour! Thanks for watching my video and stopping by ❤

Good as Gold

Okay so let’s talk about my hair.

My hair is one of the ways I express myself. I love wearing my gray, pink, lavender, blue, and white wigs because it gives me such a unique look and I feel like it’s so ME.I have no idea why, but last November, I decided to go blonde. I loved the way my Khloe wig looked on me, so I decided to make my real hair that color. I went from box dye (I know) permanent black hair to platinum blonde in about 6 months.

I regret it so much. My hair is fried, I had to cut off so much from the damage, and lost even more from breakage. I didn’t like the platinum look either because I felt like it washed me out. Hey, we learn from our mistakes! Luckily I have my wigs so I could just throw one on when I had to go somewhere or film without feeling weird about my hair washing me out.

My hair god in New York, Alex from The Drawing Room in Soho (this is not where I went blonde), referred me to my hair god in Miami, Julia from Atma Beauty in South Beach, who literally helped me love my hair again the way it is. Julia glossed my hair and blended it so that my dark roots seamlessly melt into my blonde, which is a lot more golden and not very platinum. That gloss made all the difference in the world for me. You may not see the difference but for me, it made me confident.

Last night I went to dinner with my friend Matthew from the pageant industry and my business partner/boyfriend Franz. I decided to wear something casual but cute and of course, GLAM. My client from Miss Earth United States, Brittany Georgia asked me to style her hair like this for the first day of her pageant and I was so obsessed with how it came out, I had to try th elook on myself!

The original look that inspired me on Brittany Georgia!

For my shorter hair, I used my Zala honey beach blonde hair extensions to give my hair length, density, and the illusion of health 🙂

Here’s a video with everything you need to know about hair extensions!
