Fleur de Force Reveals Book Cover

Back in February YouTube beauty sensation Fleur de Force released some exciting news about coming out with her second book. Well, just a few days ago she released the official book cover, which looks totally lavish. 

Luxe Life: Everyday Luxuries for lovers of Beauty, Fashion, & Food will be released on July 28th. The book covers fashion and beauty advice, budget-friendly hosting hacks, lifestyle and decor tips, DIY Gift Ideas, and over 30 delicious recipes. 

"Every girl deserves a little bit of luxe in her life, and top beauty and fashion vlogger Fleur de Force - Sunday Times best selling author of The Glam Guide -- knows exactly how to get it. Luxe living is all about becoming your best self - the one you've always wanted to be - and making it look effortless. It's about making everyday feel special and knowing that a little bit of extra effort in any aspect of your life goes a long way."

As far as I have seen, this book is only available for pre-order in the UK. 
I honestly don't know if it will be released in the US on the publishing date, but like her first book, I'm sure you'll be able to get your hands on it a little more easily in the future. 

I have been watching Fleur on YouTube since I discovered her along with fellow YouTuber Ingrid about four years ago. I enjoy her style, personality, and content quality. I don't have her first book yet, however I'd love to get my hands on both of them!

God Bless America

To some people Memorial Day is just another day -- usually a day off work where it's spent BBQing by the pool with friends, or relaxing on the couch enjoying a 3-day-weekend. 

There is so much more to it than that. 

Memorial Day is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Forces make to defend our way of life. 

"These fallen heroes represent the character of a nation who has a long history of patriotism and honor - and a nation who has fought many battles to keep our country free from threats of terror."

Your life is the greatest gift you can give your country, and today -- on Memorial Day, we honor those who did just that. I am lucky enough to call those hero's my family. I am the granddaughter of two extraordinary men who died for our country, and I couldn't be more thankful and proud.

I hope that every citizen can take a moment on this day to remember those members serving our country who are currently in harms way, and say a small prayer for them to return home safely. 

"And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, 
who gave that right to me." - Lee Greenwood

Kylie Lip Kit -- New Color Revealed

Kylie Jenner's new lipkit color is cool, but probably very hard to wear if you have a simplistic style like myself. Kylie released a new color -- Majesty on May 24th, saying she was just too excited to keep it a secret any longer. 

Although it's not pink or nude, it's sure to sellout quickly just like the rest of her shades. The black/blue metal matte color is "obviously not for the faint of heart -- it's bold, dramatic, and very dark." I guarantee you'll probably get a lot of attention while wearing this color.

What do you think about this new lipkit shade? Would you purchase it.... if you had the chance?
It looks like black is a popular color this Spring/Summer which is surprising.
