The Bright Red

So this is a really bright colored cardigan that brightens any outfit up! Since I wore a black and white dress with yellow dots in the middle of the flower I had to add a little more color to add life into the outfit! This cardigan was purchased at Banana Republic but probably isn't in stock since it is from a different year. Many stores are coming out with bright pops of colors and even neon shades!

Spots and Neck Ties

Hey everyone! So this is my outfit today and I just wanted something simple yet girly. I opted for this light pink blouse with dalmation spots and a neck tie. I love this shirt so much and similar blouses like this one! They just seem to pull your look together the way a basic tee can't! Which means less effort on my part! I also wore it with a pair of shorts and sandals, super spring time and chill. I put my hair in a braid since I was in a rush and wore simple make up. Hope you guys like it!!

Rumors By Anna Godbersen

Rumors is the sequel to Luxe by Anna Godbersen. The Luxe series are about the Socialites of old Manhattan set back in 1899. If you love fashion, drama and a good mystery here's a quick read for you! The series consists of four books. Rumors is the second and I just finished it in just a week! Wow, in the end it was such a great story! It leaves you wanting to get your hands on the next. Unfortunetly the Barnes and Noble in my area ran out of the third book, Envy! Is that possible??
  Well Rumors isn't my favorite, so far Luxe is still the top book. But it had it's romantic parts, slow parts and shocking parts! I admit most will NOT like this at all but I'm praying the next two books in the series will be better! I hope. :S
 I hope you guys get a chance to read it! Let me know if there are similar books like the Luxe Series! I really want to start reading more of those genres!!

Comment below and let me know if you have read recommendable books please! Anything Luxe, Gossip Girl, It Girl related. Even set back in the Victorian era!

Judge me by my hair and the lipstick that I wear

When I did my hair the day before these pictures were taken I tried (and failed miserably) to do pin curls. Of course I only left them in for 3 hours instead of 7, which I'm sure that would have made a huge difference! I hope you guys like this cute leopard print outfit I put together real quick! I have never been able to wear that shirt until now! Lol.. 

Here's my hair the first day, super volumized! Obviously the pin curls didn't work so I quickly curled it with my iron.

When I went out the next day I wore super simple make up with just eyeliner and a bit of brown eyeshadow (Mystery by Mac) I am also wearing my new lip liner Brick by Mac and Russian Red lipstick. I'm a little obsessed! 
Here my hair looks much calmer and controlled. Hope you guys like my look :)

All Black: Biker Jacket

It's been pretty chilly the past few days so I brought out one of my favorite leather jackets! 
I wore a black ruffled dress, gladiator styled heels, balenciaga purse, biker jacket and my charm bracelet. I decided to wear my hair in a braid for the lack of time to do it, and wore super simple make up with hot pink lips! Hope you guys like it!

Essie Nail Polish Collection

Hey everyone! So this is just my Essie nail polish collection that I have and wanted to share with you guys! I use to have a lot more OPIs and random drugstore nail polishes but they have been used to the max and have been thrown out. Now I'm starting fresh and prefer the Essie to the OPI anyday! They dry quicker and I find them to have more colors in the mint/pastle variety which are my favorite!
I also go to a nail supply shop where I buy them much cheaper! Only $3.99!

In total I have 24 nail polishes, sorry for such messy photos!

These are my six favorite nailpolishes!
(From Left to Right)
Mint Candy Apple, Tart Deco, Island Hopping, Splash of Grenadine and A-List

What are your favorite brand nailpolishes and what color?

Inspiration Of the Day: Audrey Hepburn

I have always loved Audrey! From the moment I began to watch her movies it became an obsession! Her look is adorable and at the same time so classy. She has different features than what was considred pretty at the time. But her quirky persona came through in her films. Favorite movies: Funny Faces, Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady among many more. Here are a few pictures I adore. 

Who is your inspiration?

Smokey Eye and Bubble Gum Party Dress!

Hey everyone! The other day I went to a Pink Party which was fabulous! The host made amazing desserts, visit her at Sweet Escape Cupcakes. There was cupcakes, cotton candy, rock candy, macaroons, cake pops, pink wafers, trouffles with marshmellows and pretzels and nuts! She even made a red velvet cake and a carrot cake! She literally can make any dessert, in any shape, size and color! Visit her site for more information!
   Her party was a success and was held at a studio in North Miami, the room was completly white except for the art on the walls, the pink lights flashing to the rhythem of the music and the pink outfits of everyone who came through the door! There were lounge chairs and sofas outside and it was such a beautiful cool night! Perfect for a party! Here is my tutorial on my make-up and what I wore to the party. It was like nothing I've ever seen before! Too bad I couldn't stay longer, just when you begin to let loose the clock strikes twelve and you're back to reality! Check out my video and photos! Thanks!

Luxe By Anna Godbersen

I read this book a few months ago and never got a chance to write a review! I think this is pretty similar to Gossip Girl since it is set in New York but in the 1890's!! Specifically 1899 at the end of the year and of the turn of the century. It deals with the society women of the era and the elite society of New York. I love the way Anna told the story though some scenes are very slow. I have two favorite characters: Henry and Diana! Ugh they are amazing and have the best story to tell!! 
Anna discribes the ladies elaborate dresses, the fancy parties and events that  happen in the story with full detail and passion. I can't help but fall in love with the era and the fashion! The life style in that time was luxiorious, of course only for the rich and wealthy class. 

I wish I could travel back and see life in that time. 
Do you have a favorite series? I'd love to know!
For now the Luxe series are top on the list! My next read is Rumors the sequel to Luxe!!

The Want List: January 2012

So I haven't done a want list in a while because I really haven't been obsessing over something I couldn't get. Now I finally found my obsession. These pink heels are a little bit more attainable in the near future, I just hope I get them in time before they sell out. They're super bright and fun! Love them! The bag on the other hand is going to have to wait a while. It's def out of reach at the momen but it is a classic bag that once you have it it will never go out of style. I love the taupe/brown colored one but the orange and red are just as beautiful! Ah!
