Zoya Winter Holiday MatteVelvet Collection

Hello Loves!
Zoya is doing it again! What is IT you ask? 
Well, my darlings, the matte-velvet nail polishes are it! As someone who own some Matte-Velvets by Zoya, I can boldly say, these certainly should not disapoint. The colors looks so rich and I'm in the mood for the Holiday season!  Read More below!

Six new MATTEVELVET Nail Colors to slip into this WINTER/HOLIDAY season.

The best-selling, MATTEVELVET finish returns this holiday season with six new shades. Each nail polish perfectly opaque, matte color with that extra special ZOYA MATTEVELVET fleck finish everyone loves.

· Aspen (ZP814) - a sparkling artic white with a micronized diamond pearl fleck.

· Sue (ZP815) - a soft champagne gold with a multi-hued oyster shell pearl fleck.

· Amal (ZP816) – a classic crimson red with a ruby red pearl fleck.

· Iris (ZP817) - a deep amethyst with a fuchsia pearl fleck.

· Yves (ZP818) - a deep sapphire that's midway in between indigo and royal blue with a blue pearl fleck.

· Honor (ZP819) - a true emerald green with a tone on tone emerald pearl fleck.

NOTE: MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, glossy top coat or speed dryer. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear. To extend wear, apply one coat of the Zoya Matte Velvet Topcoat over your favorite matte shades after polish is completely dry.

#WeddingFlow: Wheelchair Fashion in a Jumpsuit

Hi World, 

So, am I the only person that has been to over 50 million wedding this year? 
Ok, I am obviously exaggerating, but it certainly feels that way. LOL.. 
However, I am so very happy for all of the friends that have tied the knot this year. May God Bless your unions. 

This past weekend, I attended another friend's wedding, and it was so beautiful, so elegant, so loving, so sweet, and so... awwww-Inducing. 

For the wedding, I chose to go in a halter neck jumpsuit paired with black and gold accessories. 

  This picture below was the sneak peek I posted on my Instagram (@TheDIYLady). The Gold Belt shows up better in this and that's why I'm sharing it here. Lol... 

So, have you been to any weddings this year? Got anymore to attend?
I DO! Lol... The weddings don't end y'all. It's that season, I'm getting older. Everyone's getting married.

Anyways, that's it for now loves.
Till Later, God Bless.

#BirthdayBants: I'm a Year Older, OOTD & I saw Brad Paisley In Concert...

Hello Loves. 

So I turned one year older exactly one week ago from today. August 24th. 
(Can any of you guess my age? - Put your guesses in the comment box below). 

I really really loved my birthday this year, and I am grateful to be growing into the young lady, err, I mean woman I am becoming. (lol)

For my birthday this year, I chose to dress up in neutral colors as I can't seem get enough of them lately. A pop of color here and there on lots of neutrals really does the trick for me these days - A purse, lip color, shoes... you get the idea! 

Well, my lips were my pop of color on my birthday. 

I paired this very feminine skirt with a sorta matching top, and pulled things together with my black shoe with chain detailing. 

Gold accessories, eye-shadow, and a bright pink/purple lips completed the look.

And what's a birthday Photoshoot without some selfies? 

And that's it!!!

I thought about sharing details on my birthday celebration on this post, but since I've never really done something of that nature on the blog, I decided to keep that to myself and just share my look of the day (LOTD). 
If posts like that interests you and you'd like to see me post more on my birthday weekend + celebration, please let me know in the comment section. I shared much on the celebration on my Instagram page (@thediylady). Those of you following me pretty much saw a lot of it, especially the highlight of this birthday which was getting surprised by my awesome boyfriend to see Brad Paisley perform LIVE on his Crushin It World Tour!! Yes, That was EPIC!!! 

I saw him LIVE y'all! LIVE! And, I took pictures! I got amazing pictures, but I won't over saturate this post. 

NOTE: In case you're wondering, I ended up having my phone in my hand for more of this shoot because I took these pictures all by myself with my tripod stand. I tried to make it look like I was just so very much interested in my phone, but the truth is, I had to control the camera using an app on my phone. I realized when I got home that every picture I had from the day was on my phone, and I just wanted to take some quality pictures for documentation purposes for you guys with my camera.

I do have a small remote for my camera, but the way that day was set up, I couldn't be bothered with getting it. Anyhoo, I hope y'all don't mind the phone too much in my pictures.

Thanks for coming by,
Till Later, God Bless.

Wheelchair Fashion OOTD: Leopard Print + Red Skirt


I know y'all are so tired of my in and out blog posts.
I'm like, here today, gone tomorrow... Lol.
I can give multiple reasons , but I won't, because I fear they'll only end up sounding like excuses.

However, I am so thankful to you guys who continue to show me love and run to the blog when I have a new post!  Y'all are the real MVPs.
Also, shout out to those who know that I didn't vanish from the face of the earth because my Instagram proves I'm alive. hahaha....

Anyhooooo.... this is my second post this week, don't forget to check out yesterday post on Tips for taking better selfies.
Today's post is an Outfit of the day!
I have seen multiple people mix animal prints with bold colors (first person that comes to mind is IronyOfAshi), and even I have done it a few times, but dare I say my combination for this ootd is by far my fave print + bold color combo ever?
Enjoy pictures below.

Red Skirt, Leopard Print shirt, nude wedges and bag with some gold accessories. 
Oh and of course tights, because you guys know.. No above the knee skirt on the wheelchair is complete without some fancy tights. I have a gazillion. Seriously, solely for this purpose. 

This outfit on this particular day had me feeling good, and dare I say.. My Waist was Snatched Huntttyyyyy!!!! LOL

Snapchatters made me feeeeeeel all the love with the endless compliments, and NO y'all I am not losing weight (I wish I was), but it was just something about this outfit that had me looking and feeling good. Like a Boss.. like I was calling the shots.

The sun was out and it wanted vengeance, but I braved through it for this mini shoot.

Thanks for stopping by loves.

To those who have sent emails wanting more wheelchair fashion posts, I hope I've made you happy?
I'll try and get my life together y'all, and I will post more.
Till Later, God Bless.
