Hello, lovelies! My apologies for the late post. It’s still March so it’s technically not late, but my video was posted 2 weeks ago. Eek! A week before the first day of Spring (March 20), we got a little bit of snow, and I just had to wear an all-black outfit. I love the look of all -black on fresh, white snow. It highlighted not only my black outfit, but the icy-blue bindis, which sparkled against the white, snowy background.
This look is inspired by Aquamarine, birthstone for March. Aquamarine comes from the Latin words, aqua marina, meaning “water of the sea”. Since ice and snow are forms of water, the cold weather was fitting for this gemstone. Not only does aquamarine symbolize courage and fortitude, but it is also represents cleanliness, calmness, truth and letting go.

Here’s what I wore. It was COLD, but I braved the frigid weather to show off my winter outfit: a hooded, cropped sweater, simple black skirt, and tall black boots. Everything (except the boots and sweater) were purchased on Ebay.
I don’t own anything in aquamarine, except for bindis. The rest of my eye makeup is highlighted in silver. The red lipstick brightens my face.
That’s it, lovelies. I’m still in transition with this blog. I’m thinking this blog will be more of a supplement to my YouTube channel, so expect the focus to switch to videos. I’m not much of a writer, but I can definitely show my face. Stay tuned.
Love & Shimmies,
