I decided I wanted to end this year on a bang. How do I plan on doing that you may ask? I’m doing Vlogmas this year! Insert slow wine and slow twerk. I am trying so hard to vlog every day until Christmas. Now I know I have a lot going on but I really wanted to participate this year and I’m doing my best to vlog every day. Wish me luck because I know I’m going to need it. Check out day one of Vlogmas Day 1. It’s been a while since my last vlog so I’m a bit rusty, so bare with me.
I am here for these lip gloss honey! I was sent the Urban Decay Hi Fi Shine Lip Gloss collection and baby. It really is bomb. Now, I’ve had this collection sitting on my desk for months, YES, I said months. It honestly got lost in the pile of packages and this past Sunday I cleaned and organized my office to prepare for my December beauty giveaways happening Here. So, I stumbled across this and got so excited. I mean its lip gloss, you can NEVER go wrong with a lip gloss and this collection did not disappoint. I was of course eyeing all the nude lip colors but then I decided lets swatch the entire collection. So that’s what I did in today’s post. All 20 colors will be shown on my lips and honestly, this is the first collection where I love almost ALL the lip colors. Now that’s saying a lot. Check out my swatches below and tell me what your favorite color is from the collection.

If there is one thing I must have in my makeup bag its facial highlighters. It’s like whip cream on top of your salted Carmel latte. It just needs to happen. Over the years I have collected almost every color highlighter known to man. My favorite highlighters of all time would have to be from Becca Cosmetics. I legit have every single color and a few in backup. Since I am an avid makeup collector sometimes I tend to overdo it when I shop and thats currently the major issue I’m facing in my office. I promise to be more organized in 2019.
Any who, I have been so fortunate to work with some amazing brands this year and Becca Cosmetics is one of them. Since I have been added to their PR list I am regularly updated on new releases. But see the thing is, I already have ALL their products. Don’t judge my life choices lol. I have about two maybe even three of each of their highlighters and I’m not ashamed lol. Today I wanted to give my readers an opportunity to get some new goodies in time for the holidays. So, with that being said, one lucky winner will win the entire collection of Becca highlighter. Yes, all four of the original colors.
This giveaway is so simple to win. All you have to do is the following.
- Follow me on Instagram @ChimereNicole
- Follow Becca Cosmetics
- Repost and use hashtag #Chimere&Becca
Contest ends in one week.
I will be hosting beauty and fashion Giveaways for the entire month of December so be sure to check back here during the month for updates.
I recently published a fall fashion haul in collaboration with BooHoo.com. In that fall I picked out some if my fall wardrobe favorites. One of my top picks was this animal print trench coat. I love a good print and this trench coat fit the bill. Now, although this piece wears better as a duster coat. The airy feel of this cover up feels great as a second layer. Since filming this haul video I have been obsessed with finding another trench coat to add to my collection. Something a bit heavier and a tab bit more color. So, I’ve been on the hunt and came across so really cute options for this fall.
This is the time of year for holiday parties and family gathers are on heavy rotation. I know I personally have a few holiday events on my schedule that call for chic dresses and glittery accessories. I had the opportunity to partner with BooHoo.com on today’s video. I selected a few fall pieces to add to my wardrobe and decided to may it a try haul style video. Of course the day I decided to try all these items on for you all its extremely cold. So I hope you appreciate my effort because a sista was freezing outside trying to be cute. BooHoo was kind enough to offer my readers 55% off their entire purchase by using promo code CHIMERENICOLE at checkout. Yes, you read that correctly, 55% off. This is on the entire site so make sure you start your holiday shopping. Check out the full video below as well as links to all of the products I mentioned.

When I think of the perfect dress I think of three important things, style, comfort, and price. It’s extremely important to me that my clothes are figure flattering as well as chic. You truly don’t have to break the bank with designer pieces in your wardrobe in order to look stylish. Now let’s talk numbers shall we. I have been known to spend a pretty penny on my essentials in my wardrobe only because they are investment pieces or items I will multiple times throughout the years. So, what if there was a dress that you could wear all season, is figure flattering, and under $40? Yes, it does exist and I happen to own a few in multiple colors.
This long sleeve knit body con dress is one of the most comfortable pieces in my wardrobe. For those days when you’re not feeling so skinny or PMS has set in this is my go to. It ideal for all body types that why I believe it the perfect dress for the season. I also love that with a simple change of your shoes and or handbag this dress can be transformed from day to night. It’s so versatile. I have seen different variations of this dress however I like that on this particular dress it shows a bit more of the shoulders for more of a feminine touch. Check out this dress in three different colors below. If you looking for some more Fall attire visit my previous post HERE to get more inspiration.
Thanksgiving is a time for food, fun, and family. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays because you get to catch up with family and of course the food. It’s my excuse to eat all the stuffing I want and not think twice. With that being said, it’s also the holiday where you dress up to look cute sitting on the living room couch. I know I’m not the only one to do this. It’s so funny because my family knows I’m going to be snapping and tweeting away all day so if they don’t dress appropriately then well… This year I wanted to share with you some cute and stylish options for the holiday season. Manly because they offer the perfect amount of stretch and are affordable. Don’t forget to sign up for the VIP mailing list for additional promotional code.
This past week I took a business trip to Los Angeles. It wasn’t a long stay but very productive nonetheless. I can’t wait to share with you very soon the next project I’m working on. One thing you should always know about me is my inability to sit still. A girl got major goals and I plan on achieving each and every last one. In between my meetings I had a little time to run around downtown LA for a few pictures. As I said my schedule was booked pretty tight so I took as many pictures as I could. I’ve been trying to live in the moment as much as possible and that means leaving the blogging camera home.
