As you can see my main lip color is light pink color. Since my lips are very pigmented, I tend to stay towards these neutral colors. Not only are these moisturizing and somewhat long wearing, I do not find them too sticky, like many lip products and they do not dry my lips out. I always sleep with Aquaphor on my lips, which can be purchased at any drugstore. It is better than vaseline and helps keep my lips hydrated for the day ahead.

From the start of 2015, I have constantly noticed the amount of fashion bloggers, as well as celebrities, wearing coats in neutral shades of the color spectrum.

In addition, with fashion bloggers always traveling, they need staple items able to be dressed up or down! Below are my top five winter coats from my favorite fashion bloggers!

This season, I have learned to love black. It is simple, elegant and can be worn in a variety of ways! Olivia P, is wearing black from head to toe and looking fabulous! The mixture of textures, such as the fur vest and leather pants look perfect together and adding other colors may sometimes take away from the outfit as a whole! By adding a red satchel and cat eyed sunnies, she is showing her glam and chic style!
