I hope you have a fantabulous day!
This weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Style Theory Tour hosted by celebrity wardrobe stylist Tameka Raymond along with other top style and beauty insiders.
The Style Theory Tour kicked off in Atlanta and featured lifestyle expert Kenny Burns and award-winning make-up artist, Nyssa Green.
The Style Theory Tour team discussed a wide range of topics including, how to shop on a budget; fashion dos and don’ts; hair styling tips, proper makeup application, and my favorite part of the presentation: how to build wardrobe basics.
“Having worked with celebrities for more than two decades, I understand how important style and beauty is, both on the inside and out. The fashion and beauty industries have gained mainstream attention thanks to popular culture, and our goal with the Style Theory Tour is to equip our stylish attendees with information in a fun,engaging and empowering environment that will propel their personal style as well as that of those around them, clients and friends alike,” states Tameka Raymond, Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist and Founder of the Style Theory Tour.
The Style Theory Tour kicked off in Atlanta and will continue to 13 other cities. I thoroughly enjoyed the presentations, the tips, and hands-on instruction. I learned a lot and will apply these tips to my everyday style and beauty routine.

Good news for the State of Georgia and the City of Atlanta. Mercedes-Benz USA is moving its corporate headquarters to Atlanta, GA! Whoohoo!
Mercedez-Benz USA was secretly shopping several Southeast locations to relocate its corporate headquarters and chose Georgia. Why the Southeast? Well apparently states in the South offer many tax incentives, lower corporate tax rates, and other exemptions that are attractive to automakers.
According to the WSJ, Georgia offered Mercedes-Benz corporate 23 million dollars in tax credits and other incentives. The package includes, state job-tax credits, exemptions and development funds. Specifically, the company’s state corporate tax bill will be reduced by as much as $4,000, every year for up to five years for each new job.
The company plans to add 800-1000 jobs when it relocates to Atlanta. Some of those jobs will be re-located employees in New Jersey and the rest will be new jobs for Georgia residents.
I am thrilled about this new move! This is exciting news for Atlanta. Luxury automakers are seeing the value in bringing their business to Atlanta. This moves will improve our economy and put others on notice that Atlanta is a legitimate epicenter for global business.
Love is a verb.
As you Divas know, I am a nail polish junkie and I am currently in love with Lancome’s Vernis In Love, Illuminations.
This nail polish is a glittery gold, but it is not overpowering. It is very subtle. So I can wear it with practically anything and not feel like I am being too flashy flash!
Lancome’s Vernis in Love line of nail polish comes with a mistake free application brush and glides on like a dream. The polish dries very quickly and the color has staying power. In addition, all Vernis in Love nail polishes have amazing shine. I have used these polishes for the last 2 years and I simply adore them.
Vernis in Love nail polish retails for $15.50 a bottle and you can purchase them here.

I previously wrote a post on Bare Bliss Box, the new beauty subscription service featuring all natural and organic beauty products.
The one product in the box that I am absolutely in looove with is the Pura Bela Creme Deodorant.
Now I sweat a lot. I am always changing deodorant brands to find the right balance of odor and sweat protection. Of course I am always concerned about harsh and harmful ingredients in deodorants such as of aluminum, propylene glycol, perfumes and dyes. Toxic ingredients such as aluminum have been linked to breast cancer in women. Yikes!
I have tried other all natural deodorants and they either do not keep you smelling fresh or they do not stop excessive perspiration.
I have finally found the perfect deodorant. Pura Bela Creme deodorant is made from coconut oil, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), arrow root, zinc ricinoleate (deodorant), vitamin e, and essential oils of Lavender, TeaTree, Clary Sage, Bergamot, Orange and Grapefruit. It does not include any harsh ingredients such as aluminum or propylene glycol. And it works! I mean it really works. It smells amazing and as a result I smell amazing all day. I work 10-12 hour days and Pura Bela Creme deodorant holds up. What I love most about Pura Bela Creme deodorant is that at the end of the day, my underarms are not drenched in sweat. Since using this deodorant, I have not been sweating and am quite comfortable all day.
I love, love, love this product! It is a must buy especially if you want to try something organic and all natural.
Pura Bela Creme deodorant retails for $10.00 and you can purchase it here.
Whoohoo! We made it to 2015. Thank God!
I am so excited about 2015. I expect only the best in all aspects of my life. I have learned that if you live your life with positive anticipation, good things just manifest!
Every year on Luxetipsmag.com I give 5 of my top resolutions for the year. Some of them I have accomplished and some I have not. LOL! But I keep trying every year. I will not give up!
Here are my top 5 for 2015!
1. Tell people I love and cherish how much they mean to me on a consistent basis. Life can be short and fleeting. You just never know what will happen from moment to moment.
2. Manage my finances better. I am not good at this. So last month, December, I hired a personal money manager to help me reach my goals! She is great and I am so excited!
3. Let go and let God. I have learned to simply let go of worrying, anguishing and fretting over a situation and trust God will work it out. I have learned when I let go and let God, everything always works out. Fact.
4. Continue to expand www.luxetipsmag.com and grow it into a global brand.
5. Give people Grace. 99% of the time people are doing the best they can and no one is perfect.
What are your 2015 resolutions?
