I watch tons of YouTube a week. Tons. Like… I spend entirely too much time watching YouTube videos. Some times it’s a good thing. It’s how I’m getting through my natural hair journey. And sometimes I spend countless hours when I could be doing anything else on earth watching
useless BuzzFeed videos. (The ‘Try It guys are just so addicting!). So I’m going to keep track of the ones I like and share (some) of them with you each week. If you want a chance to be featured, tweet me your video!

Shana Moore: Painted Lips Project
I’ve seen #ThePaintedLipProject in YouTube, but wasn’t sure what it was really about. Shana has a great idea here! Because make-up looks completely different on dark skin than on white models.

Fur, of course, is a winter staple. But this is Winter in particular, I’ve seen some of the most gorgeous colored fur coats. So this week, I’ll show you three ways to style this season’s warmest trends. Just in time for another polar vortex.
For this outfit, start out with this beautiful patchwork Nina Ricci faux fur coat (that’s also reversible!) Underneath, pair this undeniably cool Alexander Wang sweatshirt with these quilted leather Thankoon Addition pants (on suuuuper sale!). Keep up the edge with thigh high Circus by Sam Edelman boots and Nicole Miller earrings. And nothing finishes off a cool casual look like a Gucci crossbody bag. Swipe on this incredibly pigmented vampy lipstick from NYX and you’re all bundled up for wherever this icey winter wind may take you.
Stay tuned for more colored fur inspiration!

Okay so your
terrible best friend invited you to her wedding in the middle of the winter. What to wear, what to wear? I say if you have to attend this frigid mess wonderful wintertime wedding, you might as well slay.
Start off with this resort dress from McQ. What I like about this piece, opposed to many other resort pieces, is that the dark floral pattern just hints at spring, making it a “wear now” piece. Turn this resort piece into an ultra luxe outfit with a navy fur by DVF and matching gemstone encrusted Miu Miu pumps (similar here). Finish off with sapphire earrings by Kenneth Jay Lane and a gold Kate Spade clutch. Swipe on a dash of Dolce and Gabbana lip gloss and enjoy the spoils of your disposable income. Soon your friend will be spending clothing money on a chiiilllld.
