Happy Holidays!

As i'm sure most of yoy have noticed, we have been M.I.A lately! With the holidays, and Key being on break from school it has been hard to find time to blog. I just wanted to pop on for a quick second and share Keyanna's christmas pics with you all. For 1 set of pictures we did her hair with our long and wide Curlformers, and for the other we flat ironed her hair. 
Sorry for the quality of the pics, there are the online proofs from our shoots.
Hope you all have been enjoying the holidays!





Your Skin Problem FIXED!



Under Eye puffiness -
                           First thing in the morning, wet finger tips in cold water and dab softly over the puffiness. This will bring the "swelling" down.




The easiest way to hid redness on the face is to use yellow! A lot of people use green concealers or creams however the yellow works the best to counter act the redness. So if you suffer from high colouring or Rosacea try yellow primers or concealers. 



Acne/Spots/Blemishes -
This tricks works a treat and its HEAT well actually its steam, lightly steaming the face for 5 mins can bring the yucky horrible stuff in the skin to the surface and then all you have to do it to wash it away! Its that easy!!

Steaming also works on dry skin as it break down the flaky dead cells and make it easier to exfoliates.  




Dry Lips
This is a funny little tip that I was told about. To get rid of dry skin  lick your lips, then take some sugar and press it over the lips, rub your lips together, lick it off and viola smooth lips that taste yummy!  

(By the way licking your lips actually dries them out so try to avoid it!)

Bling It Up

You have probably noticed that Fashion Is My Drug adores sparkling, shiny things. Flashy and elaborate jewelry pieces have always been trendy, but nowadays even phone cases, i-pads, furniture and nails are being embellished with dazzling jewels.

The question is: How much bling is too much bling?
If you don't want to look like rapper Lil Jon, we suggest you to have only one sparkling item, for example shoes. If you have a bling jacket, wear it with something neutral, like a little black dress we mentioned in one of our posts. Bling things hate each other so make sure they're never together on one person (this doesn't apply to Lady Gaga). :)
So, let's see some of our favorite jewelled items.

The Truth About Marilyn


“I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else."

Marilyn Monroe.



Marilyn Monroe was doubtlessly one of the most loved famous people of all time. Men wanted to be with her, women wanted to be her. The queen of pin-ups never stopped astonishing us. Even 50 years after her mysterious death, people still talk about her dramatic life, her imperfect but impressive beauty, her attitude that could break every single heart... She was an inspiration to many, in fact she still is. Famous and less famous women around the globe, such as Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Nicole Kidman and many, many more, are still trying to impersonate her, to act like her, to look like her. But we had only one Marilyn.

Fabulous watches


Your time is valuable, so make it stunning.

Watches have always been one of my favorite accessories and true objects of desire. A good-looking, quality watch can pretty much embellish your outfit and add flavor to your look. When it comes to these adorable fashion accessories, "less is more" isn't neccessarily true. These days women proudly wear massive, eye-catching bling watches.  However, we have rounded up some watches that will certainly take your breath away. Enjoy!

It's all about sequins

Do you like sequins? We adore them, and New Year's Evening is the perfect occasion to sparkle like the most beautiful star up in the sky.
The only rule when it comes to this trend is that you shouldn't wear more than one sequined item. So, if you're wearing a shiny skirt or pants, let your top be simple, and vice versa.
Take a look at our favored sequin pieces.
