Saturday Inspiration

I have to keep in mind that I'm responsible for my own actions. It's never about what someone else said/did but how I choose to respond to it. Everyday I try to remember to ask God to help me be nice to everyone no matter how I feel. I want to please God have an attitude that pleases him. I strongly believe your attitude can hinder your blessing. I love and thank the people in my life for their patience with my growth. I try to do better today than I did yesterday. I don't always get it right but as long as I continue to work on me with the help of the Lord I'll be fine. 

Continue to work on YOU and one day you'll look back on how far you've come.

My S/S Shoe

Who remembers LA Gear?! My mom purchased my first pair back in the 90's (with the light up sole!) -couldn't tell me nothing! These are my current joints (lol) that I love to wear during S/S with no socks and the low profile goes perfectly with a short, shirt, or a skinny pant. I don't always clean them which kinda gives them a vintage look.. that really only works with Converse, boots, and just about any white low top shoe in my opinion. I can't wear them because it feels like I live in Seattle! All of this rain *sigh* !I was driving to my moms and saw two snapping turtles, one in the street the other on the side walk. All of the rain has caused turtles amongst other things to join us. Now I love the rain just not when I have something to do...and I have things to do! Lol hope it's nice, breezy, and sunny where you live.
So what's your favorite S/S shoe?

NYX Sticks

Hey, hey so I just finished watching 'Chef' starring Jon Favreau, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, Robert Downey Jr., Dustin Hoffman, and John Leguizamo ...just to name a few! Aside from all the great food it had a really good storyline. A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck *sigh* I just love this movie! It's on Netflix if you want to tune in.
Anywho, here's the latest NYX pencil I purchased in MPE10 Gray from ULTA. So I asked one of their employees if they sold gray lipsticks? He told me that's something I'd find during Halloween...hahahahaha!!!! So I left him alone and went on a search around the store myself. I found a gray eyeliner (because it's easier to find more colors in an eyeliner than lipsticks). So if you go into a store and you can't find the shade you're looking for look for an eyeliner or simply blend two colors together and wala!

What's your favorite NYX sticks?

NYC | Bronzing Face Powder


Hey dolls! So I'm currently sitting on the couch using my bar stool as a desk because I don't have an actual computer desk (yet) *"started from the bottom....."*. It just finished storming here so its all dark and mysterious out -just how I like it! I have popcorn and Netflix waiting for me -oh and speaking of Netflix as I'm sure you are aware, they do an update every now and then. My account was updated last night and I found a movie that I loved for years.... 'Liberty Stands Still'. Who remembers this movie?! Starring Wesley Snipes and Linda Fiorentino. Ok, if you haven't seen this STOP READING THIS, DON'T COMMENT, DON'T EVEN BOTHER SIGNING OUT OF BLOGGER and go on Netflix right now! I mean it's that good! Ok back to Bronzing...
I am currently using NYC's Bronzing Face Powder in 720A Sunny and when I say it's so smooth, its smooth! With this being a drug store product (because lets face it not all are good) it feels like I paid 20 bucks for it when it was about $5 maybe? I also think this is a great starter for those (like myself) who are new to the world of make-up. Goes on super light which makes it easier to build as you don't want to apply tons at once. I picked my powder up from Walgreens and I am not disappointed. Looking for an affordable face powder because your money is funny? Just to get you through until you pick up your favorite?
NYC Bronzing Face Powder is the way to go!  

What's your go to face powder?

Sunday Inspiration

I think we all need to keep in mind we have a life outside of social media. We need to remember how unhealthy it is to sit on these sites for hours on end. Life is all about being balanced and keeping your priorities in line. I try to make it a habit to go on Instagram for few minutes and then log out. Staying logged in to social media will cause you to go back and forth (to see what someone posted, to post something yourself, etc.).

Just try to remember to keep the Internet to a minimum. Put your energy into spending time with your family, getting lost in a good book, a bit of Netflix (if a "bit" is possible), just anything that you love. Spend your time wisely.

NYX x Moss

Hey guys so here's a little post on my favorite nude lip combos. Earlier I was thinking how I used to go out and buy certain shades that I didn't have when all I had to do was combine two to make the shade I was looking for. *Sigh* we make life more difficult than it should be.

My current combinations are NYX 'Nude Pink' (SPL 858) & Kate Moss' 'Rossetto' (102). They give a soft pink shade perfect for summer! Be careful not to overdue it because you will get the ASHY (dry) LIP look (no ma'am lol!!)


I was one layer away from the ashy lip lol!

What's your favorite lip combo?!

My Week #3

Its Monday so its time for "My Week"!

1) On Friday I filmed an O.O.T.D inspired by the Playoffs. Go Spurs! Yes I know the Spurs are out of the Playoffs (sad face)! 

2) Sunday Kojo and I went to see the Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians! It was a bit muggy out from all the rain we've been getting but it was totally worth it! We sat super close to the field, the 11th row I believe. I was kind of scared that the ball was going to hit me and they'd catch it on camera for everyone to see! Lol dramatic much?!

3) After the game we went to my favorite burger joint 'Mooyah'. Listen if you haven't had a burger from 'Mooyah' you're missing out! They make fresh bread, the meat isn't freezer patties like most restaurants, and that mooyah sauce... mmmmm *Homer's voice*. 

4) I filmed a vlog that will hopefully be on my YouTube channel ('Londen Sloan TV') sometime this week. Search: 'londen sloan' for O.O.T.D and Vlogs. 

Hope you all have a great week. God bless! 

Something to keep in mind.. You are responsible for your own actions. No one can change your mood or "ruin your day" unless you give them that power.

Be Quick To Give...

I'll be donating the majority of my clothes/shoes to A. Mission Church this Thursday. I have a ton of things that I don't wear and there's plenty of people in the world who are in need. I've been meaning to get some clothes together for the church and finally got off my lazy butt and here we are....

It's not always about receiving but also giving. Be quick to give we're all a paycheck away from being without.

*Sigh* finally done!! Tomorrow I'll do a walk through around my house to make sure I didn't forget anything.
Love, Londen

Drug Store Brows

Hey hey y'all a quick post before the playoffs! Here's my go-to's when it comes to taming these brows. No it's not the expensive stuff but it gets the job done. I purchased my Milani Brow Kit and ELF Clear Mascara from Walgreens. It took me awhile but I've finally mastered the natural looking brow. Thanks YouTube hahaha! Later loves -another post tomorrow just because this one is so short and isn't that exciting lol!

Essentials: For The Perfect Red Lip

Here's four things I use when creating the perfect red lip. My lips get extremely dry so Vaseline is a must! My favorite go to Red (matte) lipstick is M.A.C 'RiRi Woo'. At times red/wine lipsticks are hard to apply neatly so I clean up the mess with a flat eyeliner brush and MAC foundation. Also using a small brush is a great way to apply lipstick as well. 

What's your go to red lip?!
