The Cover | FashionLayn’s Picks of the Month

On the cover of August’s issue is Alayna. Yayyyy!! LOL  Just trying to give myself a boost of self confidence. My dream has always been to be on a cover of someone’s fashion magazine. When People’s Style Watch was a thing, I always knew that one day I was going to get featured.  However, that days has not came yet and the magazine is discontinued. I decided to design my own magazine cover and put myself on it. Why not? You know, just having fun, bring creative, and boosting myself in the process.

Anyway, the reason why I designed a cover because I noticed that  most cover star have a section in the magazines that they showcase all these favorite picks. Since I am on the cover lol, on today’s post I am sharing with you  all my favorite products & colors for the month of July. I think I am going to make this a monthly thing. These products and colors have been my holy grails for the month. So scroll down and check out the fictional cover and check out all the items I am loving.

Vince Camuto Mini Backpack & Julia Kostreva Planner

I am the girl who loves to keep her hands free. Most of my family knows me to have some form of a backpack.  I think I got this from my momma, “be prepared”. In my backpack I have everything I need. You never know, Lol! Well I purchase this Vince Camuto back pack from Burlington. It 100% pebble leather featuring silver hardware.  Right alongside my mini backpack is my Julia Kostreva planner. I purchase this planner from Target for $14.99. Not a bad price for 17 month planner.

Fenty Beauty Instant Warmth Bronzers & Gold Hollow Face Earrings

Currently I have the bronzers in the shades, Coco Naughty and Mocha Mami. These two colors are just what I need to warmth up my skin for this hot girl summer. I have been reaching for these both.  I use them to warm up my skin and they hold up well as eyeshadows (transition colors). Coco Naughty is the perfect neutral shade for my brown skin while the Mocha Mami shade adds hat tint of red I love in a bronzer. When I am wearing my bronzers my abstract earrings are never far. I get so many compliments on these earrings. I purchase these earring from Forever21, however they are not in stock anymore. However, you can get you are pair from Shein for $2 buck, click here.

Bright Neon Colors

I have been promoting this neon color trend on my blog for quite some time now. Girl loves her bright neon colors. I have just about tried every color of the neon color spectrum. Bright oranges and greens have been in my reach. Just love the way these colors look on my skin.


High Block Heels

Feel so confident when I am in these heels. For a girl that has wide feet and constant feet issues/pains, I found a shoe that I can last a few hours in. I currently have these shoes in leopard print and nude color. Also I have 2 pairs of shoes in the same make, however a smaller heel in magenta and red. So is obivious that I love these shoes and the price from Target. These heels are also avaliable in wide sizes online at Target.
