V A L S , D A R L S: Happy Valentines, ‘Gal’entines Day, ‘Pal’entines Day or whichever one you’re celebrating today 🤎 We tried to keep the Vals tradition alive by eating out and our 3 year old son literally dashed across the restaurant, nearly knocked a table over with me chasing after him as my husband watched in horror. Safe to say, I’m happy to be back home chilling and eating in tonight 😂 Y’all can enjoy. I’m doing Mamantines day in🤷🏾‍♀️😫🤣

Style Diary: Mia T

Mia Taylor is my style star today. I just love her confidence and positive aura. 
I’m Mia Taylor. I’m from Charlotte, NC by way of Cincinnati, OH. I’m a 24 year old fashion blogger who received my B.S. in journalism. I love writing and I love fashion. I started blogging back in 2008 before blogging was even the “in” thing to do. I created Diary of a Fatshionista in May 2010.
What is your dressing style? What influences your style choices? (Could be ethnic influences, vintage and couture, street smart…) 
I say my style is Beauty Meets the Streets. I love being dolled up all the time, but having an edge. Hair, makeup, and nails are always the finishing touches on any outfit. My favorite fashion icons, Kardashians, Rihanna, Lala, Rachel Zoe, influence my selections. I like seeing celebrities’ street fashion and putting my own touch on it. Instagram has been a huge influence lately too. I see so many fabulous women and I recreate their looks with my own flair.
-Which brands or designers ‘speak to you’ the most? 
I love ASOS so much! They are so trendy, but it’s at a wallet-friendly price. I love Givenchy, Celine, and Versace right now. They are so popular in the urban community, which is major!
– Any beauty secrets? Favourite make-up brands?
I’m a MAC addict, but I try everything. I love regular finds at your Target or Walmart. My favorite product is the Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation. It’s the best. All of my lipsticks are MAC. Lipsticks are my favorite go-to product because they can really change your look. To many surprise, I don’t have a huge makeup collection. My looks are always the same – dark eyeliner, double up on the false lashes, highlighted/bronzed/ contoured face, and a bold lip. My eyebrows are achieved with MAC Stud pencil and Embark eyeshadow to fill in.
-What is the most beautiful thing about you?
 I love my legs and lips. I’m 5-10 and my long legs are my favorite feature. I love mini dresses to accentuate my legs. I love my smile, so my lips are always in a popping color.
 
-If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be and why? 
I would love to trade places with Kim Kardashian for a week. She’s America’s most loved and hated woman. I would just love to sit in her chair and have her glam team make me gorgeous and go shopping without a care in the world. Oh, and stroll around the world with her beau, Kanye West.
-Your favourite music track would be…? 
“Demonstrate” by Jojo.
-What is your favourite trend right now? 
Maxi skirts with the thigh high slits. Super sexy, but covering.
-If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you? 
Diary of a Fabulous, Fat, and Funny Woman. I don’t know who could play me except me!
-Your top 5 must-haves:
-My iPhone,
-Chipotle,
-Fake lashes,
-MAC lipsticks,
-and long weave!
 
-Your house is in flames, what one item would you save out of your closet and why? 
My vintage Louis Vuitton purse.
-Your all time fashion icon is… 
Marilyn Monroe
-Your favourite quote/saying 
“I can’t see.”
-Do you have any blog, video links or website we can catch you at?

    Who is your celebrity crush? Monica Bellucci. I love watching her films, and I think she’s super sexy.
