Trend Love: Hair and Makeup

Janelle Monae hair,


I don't know what the style is called but I have tried it several times. Let me rephrase that. I made up this hair look from an "accident" while fixing my hair one day and voila LOVED it. Then two weeks later I see all the celebs donning it. Is someone watching me? This has happened several times with different trends so you can call me cool cat trend forecaster. Drop the cat part though. Weird.

So if you're like me and don't care to wack off half of your head, you can still easily get the look. Here is how:

I'm used to dressing up for my current job as a bridal stylist/consultant (there are so many titles these days) so on my day off I wanted to feel dressed down but not look it. This is my version what to look like on of a casual outing. I went to (gasp!) the mall and purchased my first ever Chanel makeup item. I've planned to don red lipstick for my wedding reception and I decided this was the perfecto time to indulge. Some women go all out for bridal shoes, but everyone will be more focused up toward my lips (did that sound as awkward as I think it did?) than my shoesies. Hence TREAT TO MOI.

And yes that is a square scarf and a purse strap on my head. I am obsessed with head wear and lately turbans/wraps are my favorite.

Until Next Time.

Not that I am a vixen, I simply needed a title for this post, ok? How the crikey do bloggers decide to title their posts? Usually at a loss, I choose the fifth, random, screwy string of words that come to mind. Hence Vixen Eyes. Hey, I could have been pompous and titled it "World's Most GORgeous Eyes". Be verrrrry thankful readers. 

I need a pick me up some days with wedding and moving plans going full throttle. Less than 30 days and my new address is New York City! And I am sooo over this long distance relationship with Mr. Parks.

Until next time!




Je m'appelle Mollie et j'adore le colour rose. Something like that.



I have been obsessed with pink of late, which is the strangest peculiarity because I turned my nose up to  it most of my life. It's probably due to five brothers and now that I am older and allowed my own opinions (however girly), I am taking a stand for pink. I am a color lover so how is pink any different? I paired my obnoxiously swell lip color {exhilarating by Stila} with this casual tee and jeans just to spice up my day.

Fashionably Late

I'm back! Well in a month or so I can be back officially. This year has brought trials and tears and a lot of laughs and blessings too. One month from today I will call New York City home (about time!) and will have been married for about 24 hours to my best friend. I'm looking forward to the the new life!

I never had the courage to make a post whilst this year whirled by and I regret it slightly, but no looking back. Here's to the future of Style of Your Own. She's coming back full force.

Until I can post regularly, please join my fun on Instagram [styleofyourown] and Pinterest

What wedding planning {sort of} looks like:
