It’s already starting to look and feel like summer in LA and so is my closet! Can I just say- let the sandals game begin! I’m so excited sandal season is here and it’s still January! It’s crazy to me how places like NYC and other cities all around the globe are experiencing not-so-sunny temperatures. I’m slightly jealous because I feel like my winter season was jipped (aka I didn’t really have one!). I can’t complain too much because it’s outfits like these that make me thankful for Cali. I paired this super chic blouse with a pair of little black shorts little to give it a boho chic vibe. This look is so simple (notice no crazy colors or accessories) so that these TO-DIE-FOR knee-high gladiator sandals can be the center of attention. They remind me of Stuart Weitzman’s gladiators, but these are unbelievably affordable (and cute!) compared to his $398! Just saying. Can I get a chaa- ching!?!
Think shades of green, purple, and blue (hence the term jewel/gem tones). I decided to take this trend and re-invent it into my beauty life. I get bored with my makeup easily so I happily decided to give this a try. If you’re also kind of over your makeup style- try this out for your next look. I experimented with blue eye-liner for the first time last November when I was in NYC shooting videos with Target. Surprisingly, I ended up loving the eye-liner so much that I went and bought one after! Who would have thought that a little pop of color could transform your eyes? For my look below, I decided to go more dramatic by adding a dark purple lip to spice up this look (so great for night time!). If it’s too much for you then make adjustments where you need to. Whether that’s trading in the dark lip stick for a subtle nude lip gloss, or eliminating the eyeshadow and simply wearing the eye-liner by it self- You make the rules sista!
Simple How-to: I used an eyeshadow palette to create a shimmery/smokey base (optional). Tip: I used a dark matte shadow to define the crease of my eye and around the edges for a smokey look. Then I applied a few coats of the blue eye-liner (to really make it pop) and then finished off the look with my volume mascara and bold lipstick.

Since it’s Martin Luther King JR. day I want to leave you with one of his amazing quotes. He is truly one of the most inspirational and profound leaders of our time. “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
You know how some people move to LA and eventually get face-lifts? When I moved to LA I eventually realized my blog needed one. If you typed in spazmag.com last night or today, you probably noticed the big change! Welcome to the new me! Technically, it’s still the old site but it went under a major makeover and name change.
So why the change? To sum up my 3983472o2545 reasons into one: I want to share more of ME with YOU! I’ve evolved so much over the past 3-plus years since I started blogging (personally and in my career) that I knew now was the time for a healthy change! What a difference a year in Los Angeles makes- I mean this in the best way. I went from being this girl fresh out of college in Texas to a new-found business owner in LA (the transition hasn’t been easy). You guys mean the world to me and I’m so excited that this is a space where I can nerd out about fashion and be more personal with you! This site is also 10 times easier to navigate and will focus more on the things you guys love: my outfit posts, fun videos and plenty of personal style and beauty tips to inspire your next look. Yay! So excited for this new journey- and even more excited to have you come along for the ride!
Read more about the big change, plus my personal note to you here.
Happy Saturday! Who’s ready for another entertaining episode of The Mix!? I still can’t believe I co-created my own online talk show..dreaming. I don’t want the season to end! We’re off to a great start and I hope you guys enjoyed watching Episode 1 about women’s fashion. Today we’re switching gears from to menswear! Grasie, Taye and I thought it would be fun to have actor/comedian Nate Caywood and model Andres Matsen who are totally opposite in every way to dish their opinions about guys’ fashion, the stereotypes that come along with it, plus a fun competition game called: Gay, Straight or Woman! Hope you will join us in the mix!

A little black dress goes a long way sometimes. I love a loose-fitted dress like this one because it’s super comfortable and easy to run errands in. It’s especially great for those casual days when you don’t feel like dressing up. I added my personal Sazan touch with this fabulous Milk and Honey evil eye necklace! A little pop of gold is all an outfit needs sometimes.
