Eyewear can say a lot about a person without them ever uttering a word. It’s a lot like the effects that fashion outfits have when we look at the person wearing them. They give you a look into the persons personality. Plus, a stylish pair of eyewear can truly pull a look together. 
It’s that time of the year where we are pulling out the shades more and more. I have Always been a lover of a nice pair of shades. However, I never had any of my own. I guess it’s because I wear prescription eyeglasses and I figured it would be too much of a hassle to get. Then on the other hand purchasing them would not be cheap as I have astigmatism. I know before you say, Why don’t you get contacts? They don’t make them in colors for folks with my type of astigmatism any more. Yes, I hate it! I really want to get some contacts, wanted some where I could change my eye color. Bummer right! Then I can across Eyewear Insight and I was so excited to find them.

They carry prescription eyeglasses including computer glasses, reading glasses, prescription sunglasses, bifocals and progressive lens, as well as non-prescription or clear eyeglasses.

Eyeglasses are a great way to boldly accessorize any outfit. Whether you need them or just rocking them for fun, especially when you have a few stylish pairs on your dresser. But, glasses can really get expensive! At least they were, until I found Eyewear Insight! Their selection is huge and filled with trendy glasses that are super affordable!

I picked up the Halle B cateye sunglasses. Cute right? I absolutely adore them. I’m all for animal print, as it brings the sexy out in you. They offer a perfect flattering shape with the touch of animal print flaring out from the sides. These are definitely for a Diva with style! These beautiful shades tie together an outfit, giving it an elegant polished look.

We all want to achieve the look of a flawless beat face. But sometimes our skin issues make it hard for us. This is where color correcting can come into play as a technique that can help if you are suffering from certain skin problems. Hard Candy has come out with a new line of color correction products to aid in addressing different skin issues. If you have never tried color correcting like myself, Hard Candy products are a great place to start.


Hard Candy sent me there Cushion Wonder (cream with built-in sponge), Radiant Primer (Lavender), and Expert Stick (Yellow) to try. I like all of them, but I really liked the Cushion Wonder and Radiant Primer. These two products addressed skin issues that I wanted to correct. The coverage was very good and they prolonged the wear of my makeup. Each of these are available in six different shades that cater to all skin tones.

Radiant Primer 

The primer is your go to for all over correcting. Just pea-sized amount is all you need to cover and brighten your whole face. This primer is packed with glycerin, which pulls moisture out of the air and deposits it into your skin. No more dry crack looking makeup here! You don’t have to fret over your base makeup feeling cakey over this primer either, as it asks as a second skin by melting into your skin quickly.

Cushion Wonder

This is a pretty good concealer for dark circles and spots on your face. It’s very lightweight and blending is a breeze to even out your skin. After you achieve your desired coverage, set it with power and proceed with your next step. 

Expert Stick

This stick goes on very smoothly and will not tug at your skin while applying. Once you blend it out with your finger or your favorite blending tool, it transforms into a powder-like finish that mattes the skin. It’s great for oily skin sufferers by keeping shine to a minimum.

How to Color Correct

If acne, rosacea, or an uneven skin tone are what you want to cover, you should reach for the green, which will neutralize redness. If you have sunburn, then yellow will minimize it for the day. Pink and lavender (depending on your skin tone) will lend your complexion a natural-pop of radiance. If dark circles a big issue for you, then peach or orange will be your new bestie. Too much info to remember, no worries! You’ll find purpose of each is clearly printed on the packaging. You can also mix and match these colors to target specific concerns that you have as well.

Overall, I’m loving these new color correction products from Hard Candy. I fell that really aid in helping you to achieve a very flawless beat face. Everything in the Hard Candy Color Correct collection is available exclusively at Walmart.

Leather Maintenance Basics 

Love on your leather and it will last a lifetime. Give it a quick wipe down with a soft, dry cloth once a week.

Limit your leather goods exposure to direct sunlight.

Every so often, rotate your leather, this is so that one product doesn’t age more rapidly than the others.

To help prevent wrinkling or flaking, be sure use a good leather conditioner. Just take some on a soft cloth and gently rub all over. You want to repeat this step every month.

Removing Stains on Leather

It’s recommended for oil stains, to put cornstarch on it as soon as possible, rub it in, and immediately brush off the remaining powder with with a clean cloth. Afterwards, you can apply some mink oil to the rest of the area. This will often cover up the oil stain and blend in with a natural look. 

Spilled water on your leather, no worries! Simply let water spills dry on their own. Do not try to blow dry them! 

For food stains, crush a small amount of white chalk and let it sit on the stain overnight. In the morning, brush it off with a clean cloth. 

To remove fresh ink or dirt stains, use a white eraser on the affected area, lightly. If it’s an older stain that has set in, please seek the help of a professional.

Leather Storing 

Store your leather in dust bags or a cotton pillowcase. For handbags cross the handles over each other and leave them in an upright position.

To keep the shape of the leather, be sure to fill it with clothing items, butter paper or acid-free. Do avoid newspaper, it can smear and stain.  Be sure to air it out once every two weeks. 

Worried about odor while storing? To prevent or get rid of unwanted odors, fill a plastic bag with baking soda, zip the leather bag closed, and store for a few days. Dryer sheets can also save the day also.

Thank for checking out this post and I hope it helps you with caring for your leather goods.
