What I Wore: Booking with the Backpack

11:49 AM

Heading to Fort Myers for the weekend, and below is my outfit and gear. I love causal wear and this for the most part is how I dress. Since I notice there is a new trend of chic backpacks (which I think is so cute), I decide to bring along my travel backpacks instead of my huge tote bag.  Even though I like the trend, I wonder how long it will last? I have always had backpacks in my closet, and they were there for ease of traveling, then they were for fashion. Now that I see it becoming a trend, I wondering for how long? What are your thoughts on this latest trend?


This is the rainy season for South Florida, so I hope to still find things to do in Fort Myers, and still be able to share it with you guys on Monday. I also have to deal with high humidity, which is terror on makeup and camera lens. Any tips on how to prevent foggy lens..ugh? Have a greet weekend guys, and see you next week (if weather permits ^_^)




Outfit Consist of Long Sleeve Shirt | Skinny Jeans | Brown Belt | Leather Backbag | Sneakers | Timex Weekender Watch | Blue Mirror Lens Glasses

My makeup consist of what I consider my essentials, blush is M•A•C Raizin Matte Blush, and my lip color is Viva Glam VI outline with Chestnut, and prep with the EOS Lip Balm

  3. Blush question: How do you decide between MAC Raizin and MAC Blunt. I always use Raizin. I have not looked at the Blunt color yet. What's your preference as to when to reach for the each color?

    1. Hey Benita,

      I'm not a makeup guru, but for me, it is what I want to bring attention to or what is getting the most attention. Whenever I wear bright lipstick, the attention is the lip color, so I found going for the blunt doesn't make me look like a clown. I also will never wear anything bright on my eye lids if I’m wearing a bright lipstick.

      If I have a neutral or nude color lipstick on, I will go for the Razin, since that blush tends to brings out my eyes and check bones. I still want to look for another brighter blush, since blunt is not that noticeable on my skin tone, I just put it on my face for a little more dimension. It help by not making my face look so flat when I wear foundation since everything is smooth, and one color (which to me is unnatural looking).

      Will that change in the future, I don't know, but for now I like to play it safe.

    1. Hi EVANIR

      Thanks for the visit and the comment. Hope all is well with you in Brasil. I had to use Google translate to understand what you were saying. I went ahead and did a translate of what I wrote here, but I don't know how good it will be ^_^.

  7. To answer your question; You can Google how to prevent camera lens from fogging up. Checked with a few photographers, they said the same thing ... if you are going to be outdoors leave camera in the bag and place it the trunk of your car! Online a few suggested Dawn detergent the photographers said DON'T! It may work on glasses, but not worth ruining a lens!

    Cool look! You make it appear so effortlessly! Like the backpack especially in brown! I have, backpack, totes, heels, boots and motorcycle jackets (gets cool here at night) in brown vs wearing black constantly!

    Love Chucks! Idk how many I've had over the years, low and high tops! Dang it Sheila everything, I mean Everything ... your tops, jeans, shorts and skirts fit you Perfectly! Good Job! :)

    Like your hair! Know how you did it, but from a distance it has a beehive look! Feels cool, looks cool! ;)

    Wishing you a Safe n Pleasurable Excursion and Fab Weekend Sis! =D

    1. Thanks Cheri as always for the comments. The beehive looks is the main reason why I did my hair like that... and that look is only achievable when my hair needs a retighten, which is this week.

      I Google the way to prevent foggy lens, and the route I was going for was to leave the camera in my car, but man am I uncomfortable with that. I was hoping one of my fashion divas followers came up with another way of keeping the lens clear.

      I hoped you had a wonderful weekend...Xoxo

    2. I'm sure one of the bloggers knows or call a camera shop may able to help!

      As usual I don't really understand??? o_O

      If you were going to be using it outside why would you be worried if it was locked in the trunk and wasn't visible??? Do they crack open trunks there just because? I know bad peeps/perps will steal anything including our entire homes, yard if they could load them on a truck given the opportunity! :(

      Please tell me it doesn't take as long to retighten sisterlocks as having microlocks re-braided??? Just curious never asked anyone before.

      Take Care, Love ya Back Sis! Have an Excellent Day! =D

    3. LOL...I don't think they can crack trunks? I was a victim of a home robbery, and the person that did it was someone who saw us (family) brought in items in the house etc. So I'm nervous that if someone see me leaving my camera equipment in there, that be a cause for them to break the windows and open the truck and steal it...I stayed in a pretty good area, so hopefully that will never be the case.

      Sisterlocks retighten varies depending on the consultant/trainee, size of lock, and how long you went without getting a retighten done. I go every 4-6 weeks and my retighten can range from 4 - 5 1/2 hours. So if I remember correctly when having my micros done, that is half the time of that. Normally micros (weave version), the ones I used to get in the past, took about 8 or more hours.

      Take care Cheri and hope your day is feel with sunshine.
