Snap Story

Indie Fashion Blogger Anais Alexandre of Down to Stars on Snapchat AnaisLuvsU

I've been obsessed with Snapchat for a LONG time but I realized that I haven't really told you guys to add me on there: AnaisLuvsU ! My whole life is up on my story so yes, all of random antics, day to day life and everything else is on there. Please add me and hit me up because I get really bored sometimes guys lol

Also if you're curious I'm wearing my "house clothes" which are mostly from H&M and Forever 21. I like to dress comfy and cute even when I'm home because you never know whose gonna pop by for a visit or who you might run into the next time you need to stop by the bodega around the corner haha

// Burt's Bees // Lip Love

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
It's really rare for me to write reviews for beauty products since my focus is usually on fashion and lifestyle brands. So that's why you know I must really love Burt's Bees new line of lipsticks if I'm writing about it! One thing I take seriously when it comes to any products I put on my skin or body is making sure there are natural ingredients.

It's such an important step before any of my skincare or beauty product purchase! You probably already know this but just in case you need a refresher, Burt's Bees products are 100% Natural and the ingredients in their new lipsticks are too; Moringa, Raspberry Seed Oil, Beeswax, Vitamin E - Moringa oil is full of essential fatty acids and helps to soften and condition skin, while Raspberry seed oil improves skin elasticity, keeping your lips feeling lovely.

I absolutely LOVE these new leather high top Converse's that I got from Macy's. They fit like a dream, are super comfy and look amazing. Let's be honest, I'm probably never taking these off.

// LØCAL INTERVIEW // Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen

I'm always on the hunt for leaders in the local music scene. My search led me to Oliver Ignatius, the self proclaimed Minister of Information and Head Honcho at Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen recording studio. Founded five years ago, and run by a collective of artists, the studio records and produces tons of records by local artists.

Now at their fourth studio, (the first of which was a ramshackle bedroom, the second was a basement with seven-foot high ceilings and a mice infestation where the group was driven out by neighbors which led them to their third studio in a commercial space which flooded and had raccoons living in the walls,. The straw that broke Oliver's back was a final wave of flooding in Spring 2014 which brought on the move to their current space) #CurseOfMCFK

Together the collective raised money from friends and the community for their elaborate five month construction project to open Mama Coco's Funky Kitchen studio in January 2015.
