Warm Smokey Eye – Fleur of the City

 

Happy Thursday! I know I am off a day with this video so my apologies! Here is a look using one of my favorite shadows every…I discovered the shade “antiqued” from MAC when I worked for them and I wore it for a month straight. I still love wearing this shade for a warm smokey look in the summer time. It is just such a beautiful shade. I will have as many products as I can that I used in this video linked below!

Thanks for watching! Be sure to subscribe so you get notified anytime I upload a new video!

PURSE ENVY- Fleur of the City

PURSES

 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 /

Let’s take this dreary Monday morning to admire some gorgeous bags I am currently lusting…. When I look for quality, designer bags, most of the time I look at classic staple colors such as nude, black, grey or red. These colors tend to go with a lot of my wardrobe, and just make your outfit look simply put together. Simple is my motto.

I hope you enjoy admiring these bags too! The links to each bag are below the picture!

Happy Friday!  Here is a look I wore last weekend… I love wearing tennis shoes with a body con dress, it allows me to show off my figure and look sexy, but while looking casual too. This is currently my go to signature look when I am not wearing active wear.

Right now I am currently working,  but will then be taking off for a weekend trip to visit someone new in my life! If you want a peek into what I am doing/ where I am going, follow me on Snapchat. I share so much more of my life on  there….Sometimes it’s hard to open up via web or Instagram, but on snapchat I feel like you guys can really get to know me, as well as me getting to know you! {SnapChat: fleurofthecity}

Next week I will have a new YouTube video up on a drugstore haul {Wednesday}! Leave me any other video requests you might have! I am thinking of doing an updated contour routine. Have a wonderful weekend!

au revoir,

DUTCH BRAIDS- Fleur of the City

Processed with VSCO with a7 preset

IMG_2045

 

One of the ways I keep my hair as healthy as possibly, is honestly not washing it so much. I wash my hair about once or twice a week. Why? Because not only does it protect it from heat damage, it also allows the natural oils of your hair to spread throughout your hair which can benefit your hair in so many ways. This is the main reason my hair has stayed so healthy throughout the process of going blonde.

So what do I do with my hair? When its newly washed I wear it down for about 2 to 3 days…then I usually start wearing it in a ponytail or messy bun. I ALWAYS use dry shampoo, even on my newly washed hair to add texture. But lately, besides the messy bun, one of my favorite ways to wear my hair is these dutch braids! It took me a good hour to figure how to braid these braids (okay maybe two hours because I stink at braiding), but I mastered the technique. If you haven’t already seen this video on how to DUTCH BRAID, check it out here!

au revoir,

Wow! It’s crazy looking back at last summer’s photos! I feel like FOTC has changed so much, and so have I. We have both have grown in many different ways but the best part is sharing it with you! I picked out all of my favorite looks from last year….some of them that were left out had me wondering what the heck I was wearing. It’s funny how as you grow as a person, your style changes too.

I would have to say that my two favorites moments I have shared on here would be going to NYC Fashion Week & opening up about my chronic migraines. As a little girl I dreamed of being along side the runway watching each outfit go by, last year I lived that dream because of hard work and you guys! When I opened up about my chronic migraines, everything changed. I had this moment in my life where I realized I wanted to share moments that were difficult, moments that were raw, and moments that make you stronger. I say this all the time, but I wanted to take my bad days and turn them into ways of inspiring any of you that might be going through a difficult time. I realized from opening up, I wanted to share ways on strengthening your INNER beauty as a woman. If you want more on inner beauty/ inspiration, check out my Instagram here.

I am so excited to see what another year brings to FOTC, in September my blog will be 2 years old! For those of you that have followed my journey from the very beginning, through every good and bad outfit, thank you!

Happy Friday! Here’s a look I wore last weekend out to dinner with my family. I actually found this dress last summer at Target and wore it completely differently! When I find classic staples like this I am definitely not ashamed to re-wear it multiple, multiple times. Call it a Parisian thing, but they love their classic staples! How did I mix it up? By changing the shoes and adding this over the shoulder jacket! Keeping it simple allows me to put together an effortless look.

What are you up to this weekend?! I am super excited for the weekend! Thanks for stopping by, see you Monday!

au revoir,

Jessica Ray
