Fashion Throwback: 10/20/2011
This photo was taken last year right around my birthday. I wore a black floral headband from Forever 21, a caramel leather jacket from Strawberry, high waisted black pants from XOXO, a random black scarf and boots from Rainbow. As you can see, none of these brands are “designer” and I still managed to look great. Proving that its not how much money your wardrobe is worth that...
Manic Panic Lip Gloss and Lipstick Review
[The following is a sponsored review for Manic Panic.] Today I received a package from Manic Panic and I was stoked!

I am excited because I knew they’d be sending me shades of red, which is one of my favorites right now! Without wasting any time, I unwrapped the package and was...

Yesterday was a very good day for me. I felt serene and peaceful.

It’s so comfy and fits my body perfectly. The belly loves it, too! All weekend I’ve been giving make-up a rest to let my skin breathe for...

My Look: 5-20-2012
Today my boyfriend and I went to see my Mother to bring her a yummy red velvet cake and some cider to celebrate her 64th birthday. The nice weather has finally kicked in, and I’m glad because the only thing that fits right now are maxi dresses and tights (I’m happily expecting!). Here’s what I chose to wear today! a black vest over an old Forever 21 tank, some black tights...
Lipstick Remix: Peachy Love!
So, the other day I felt like experimenting with two lipsticks I love: Maybelline’s “Peachy Scene” and MAC’s “Honey Love”. Peachy Scene is a pearly pink that makes practically any face look fresh and Honey Love is nude lip heaven. I put on Peachy Scene first and was pleasantly surprised when I smoothed on some Honey Love on top. It created a really...

Can Relaxed Hair Curl/Wave?
(Photo taken May 16th, 2012) The answer is: YES! I am a huge fan of the straight hair look, but sometimes I either get lazy or don’t have time for all the maintenance that having straight hair requires - so I opt for washing it and letting it air dry with the help of some products to de-frizz and define it. My hair is relaxed. A lot of people think that relaxed means that your hair will...

Beauty Quickie: Remove Sand Easily!
Beach days are definitely here! A day of fun at the beach can be great for replenishing your energy, taking a refreshing splash in the salty water and letting your body absorb some healthy Vitamin D from the sunrays. The sand is also nice to lay on and feel under your toes. But…when it has to come off the body, it’s annoying as hell! That’s why you should always take a...
Revlon Metallic "Gold Coin" Nail Polish
I’ve been doing the natural thing (aka no nail polish) on my nails for quite a while now and decided to spice it up a bit last night. Honestly, I’m not huge on nails or nail art. A french manicure is all I need, if that! So I went for my fittingly small collection and marvelled at my Revlon Metallic nail polish #925 in “Gold Coin”, which I had totally forgotten I...

Oh to re-live these days!

I love this! Essie nailpolish is one of my favorites. They got super creative on this promo!
I am on my Ruby Woo shit today! This matte red lipstick by MAC is all that :D The shade is perfect on my skin tone.

I might make a post comparing all of them soon! WHAT’S ON MY FACE: NARS...
