Hey There Beautiful People!
We all ohhhh and ahhhh over our favorite celebrities and their fashion choices. Unfortunately, as young christians we don’t have a lot of people to look up to who keep it stylish and COVERED. Fortunately we do have Gospel superstar Kierra Sheard. Kierra is one of the few that gives us relevant fashion without being trashy or suggestive. I’ve noticed that she is a big fan of Color Blocking and Bright Colors. If you wanna get the Kierra Sheard look follow these tips:
- Shapers are Key: Any good look starts with a Good Foundation. A good shaper keeps everything smooth and in place
- Lots of color and prints: It is rare you see kierra wearing one color head to toe and if she does she definitely adds something with the accessories
- Accessories are a Must: Judging by the many pictures she post on instagram (@khloedrew) This fashionsta is in love with unique earrings, and Gold necklaces and bangles.
- Heels, High Heels: Yes you can bet on seeing kierra in a pair of flats but it’s her pumps that make a statement
- Try Something Different: Kiki Officially became my fashion Shero when she stepped out looking amazing wearing a BOLD BLUE LIP. The big tip I have for trying something bold and different is to be confident in your decision.
Fashion is fun, don’t take it so seriously. In the end if you don’t like it you can just take it off. Remember, it’s ok to be inspirerd by someone, but remember to put your own spin on things. Peace, Love, and Blessings Beautiful People!!!!!!!!
P.S. Where is this Mamajik clothing line at?I was excited to see her stuff!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOWWWW. It’s been a while since I’ve have time to make a real post. So I’ll dedicate this post to one of my favorite sites for makeup brushes and now makeup Abbamart.
Ok, So abbamart is know for selling amazing makeup brushes at really cheap prices. Now they are venturing into actual makeup with there BELLEME collection. I was given the opportunity to review one of their products and I choose to review their eyes on me eyeshadow in Midnight in Paris. Midnight in Paris is charcoal grey with a colorful sparkle
IT comes packaged in a very cute package. P.S. I love the hand drawn look.
I’m not sure if it is but the package looks like it could be eco-friendly.
The one gripe I do have with the packaging is that almost everything is in korean.
Now on to the product:
Midnight in Paris looks exactly as described. it has a beautiful array of colorful sparkles. I got excited when I first swatched the shadow cause the color was so concentrated. I also love that the shadow had a smooth texture. It’s been my experience that a lot of eyeshadows with sparkles or glitter in them tend to be a little scratchy. The more I look at this shadow the more I want to call it a Gunmetal as opposed to a Charcoal grey because of the shine but I think that might be due to the sparkles. One of my biggest reasons for loving this product is the fact that it can be used with water. When I swatched it (1=water, 2=alone, 3=with primer) I got 3 totally different results. While the color was great by itself(swatch2) water (swatch 1) made the colored sparkles come out more while primer (swatch3) made the base color more pigmented. Something about the way this eyeshadow reacted differently with each product tickled me
I have to say all in all I LOVE THIS EYESHADOW. I’m a big fan of sparkles so this just has me in heaven. this is the perfect color to do a smokey eye with. Speaking of which. Yesterday I went to go see the new Tyler perry play and thought it would be a perfect occasion to try a look with this. I didn’t really feel like going over board so I just put Midnight in Paris on my lid with a little of my white sparkle dust in the inner corner . What I like about this product is while it is pigmented it’s not too pigmented. Meaning it’s buildable as opposed to having to tone it down to achieve a softer look. This product is great, especially for the price (only $4.50 @ abbamart.com).
I said all this to say BUY THIS EYESHADOW!!!!!!!!

So I decided to get my nails done because my real nails were breaking. The nail shop usually doesn’t have the colors I like so I just decided to start polishing the nails at home myself. This week it’s all about they greys.
On my nails I have:
KleanColor Polish in CHARCOAL
Milani holographic polish in HD
and a China Glaze crackle in Cracked Concrete
The KleanColor polish has to be one of my favorites ever. Can you believe it only took one coat to get that color pay off. As you can see I didn’t have the best lighting so the crackle looks funny but I promise it looks much better in person.
Thats all I have to say about that.
Have a blessed and productive weekend!!!!!!

So if you were as unlucky as I was you weren’t able to go to chicago for Kierra Sheards live recording Featuring BRL. Lucky for us social network sites like twitter are able to keep people with real time stats of whats going on.
So lets start with what she wore:
JESUS!!!! I need her jacket in my life ASAP. For the recording Kierra Wore all black consisting of black boots, black pants, a black shirt and A black jacket with Bold Shoulders and rhinetone Star detailing (I need this jacket in my life). Brl did black tops or jackets with shoulder embleshments. The men of Brl did all Black with Blue ties.
I must be honest. I was scared about what she was going to wear. While I love her music, Her fashion tends to be a miss a lot of times for me. This time i am Very pleased with what I saw. Very simple but very bold at the same time. I would have loved to see her with a statement necklace but either way I give the fashion fot the night an A. Seeing that I wasn’t able to attend the festivities. The fashion is the only thing I can really comment on. So, Did you go? if so how was it? will, you be buying the album? What was your favorite part of the recording?

P.S. Shout out to Kierra for getting up for class the very next day!!!!!!

So, Did you enjoy the grammy’s. Did your favorites come out on top.
Here are a list of the winners in the Gospel Categories
Traditional Gospel Album:
Downtown Church-Patty Griffin
Best Gospel Performance
Grace – BeBe & CeCe Winans
Best Gospel Song
It’s What I Do – Jerry Peters & Kirk Whalum
Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album
Hello Hurricane – Switchfoot
Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album
Love God. Love People. – Israel Houghton
For a complete list of winners, check out the Grammy Website.
I’m really disappointed that the only gospel representation as far as performances was Yolanda Adams singing during the Aretha Franklin Tribute. My question with that is why wasn’t Karen Clark Sheard Performing during the tribute. Everyone knows she loves aretha and aretha loves her. I can almost gurantee you if they would have asked her to sing she would have done it. Well, What are your thoughts on the grammy’s. Personally, I think this was a good one .
Again, gospel needs to do better with the wardrobe.
OK, So Yolanda Adams looks great. And while I am a fan of everyone pictured I must say i’m not seeing anything greater than a C- in the Fashion department. I understand not everyone has a stylist but I know for sure that you could get one of for no other show, the grammy’s. I would love to see a gospel artist on the best dressed list but i’m not holding my breath.

If you type a search in google for “Christian fashion” You wont get anything really. Faith based fashion has always been either the sunday morning suits with the matching hats, or just a plain t-shirt with an overused saying or Song Lyric. What about the 20 somethings that want something fun and fashionable to wear to church. it is hard to find decent church clothes that you don’t have to pay tons of money for. For a while, a few years ago, Simply Fashions had some really good suits that were fashionable yet very appropriate for only about $15. Then all of a sudden they stopped selling them. Now it’s hard to even find a decent skirt that is not super short and super tight. A lot of people , including myself, either wear a lot of pants or sundresses. I’m Just waiting on a designer to come out with some church dresses and suits for us 20 somethings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, Welcome to my Blog. This blog used to be called “Detroit Urban Beauty” but I decided that it needed a change. I wanted to do this from a perspective that you don’t see a lot of. Instead of being just from a Detroiters perspective, it now has a more christian focus. When Shopping I find myself looking for what I like along with what is respectable. Many people think that in order to be fashionable you have to be half naked. I partially blame the media for that. The purpose of this blog is now to educate, inform, and enlighten you on everything a “Christian Fashionista” wants or needs to know. So check out the different tabs at the top and…………………..
Have a Blessed Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AS a budget shopper, I spend hours trying to find a good deal on things that are very expensive. I love thrift shops, I frequent the clearance racks, and coupons are my best friend. But there are things that are harder to find on sale like an iPad or the oh so popular Sigma Brushes. Well, this site allows you to blog for point or what they call “luuux $” and what you do is save those points up to buy luxury items from their “luuux shop”. They have all kinds of electronics like 2 different iPads, 2 different Macbook Pro’s , Digital cameras and just too much to name. If you’re not big on electronics they also have shoes and accessories, bags, clothes, and much more. There is even a LV bag. Now I dont know about anyone else but This is such a great deal. Check out some of my post and sign up. Hey it’s free so why not!!!!!!!!
So, I’m gonna leave you with this, Everybody says God knows My heart right? But how many of us know his?????
*Food for Thought*
