Inspiration of the Day: Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham is the true Fashion Queen and I take a lot of my inspiration and motivation from her. 
She was born in Victoria Caroline Adams on the 17th of April 1974 in Harlow, Essex, England. 
Her career started when she joined the all girl pop group Spice Girls as Posh Spice. (Which suits her perfectly because she is the embodiment of Posh). She later on went solo but has found more success in the business world and as a fashion icon. Her style has evolved through out the years and she has always been on top of fashion. Not only is she fashionable but so is her entire family, from her gorgeous husband to her adorable daughter. 
She married David Beckham on 4th July 1999 and they have been such a power couple all these years. 
Now that's how you do it ladies!

Let me share with you some of my favorite pictures because as they say, 
a picture is worth a thousand words.

#ManicureMonday: Turquoise and Caicos

Hello lovely readers, so everyone has seen the gorgeous color Turquoise and Caicos. I've worn it a million times before, here, and here. But, you can't blame me because the color is so perfect for Summer. There is something different about my nails though, can you guess? It's the shape! I'm trying out the super trendy almond shape. In the next few weeks my nails will probably grow and it will be more noticeable, but for now I'm trying out short almond nails. What do you guys think? 
Is the almond nail your kind of trend or not? 
Another thing I wanted to talk about is how to get your nails to be a little bit different. I hate wearing something so much I get bored with it so I've been looking for nail inspirations and have come up with a few cute options I want to try out. Stay tuned!

NOTW: Got the Blues for Red

Hello my lovelies! Its been awhile since I posted about my nails since I haven't had any time to actually do them. But not this week. This week I decided to go for a very dark, ox-blood red (which is totally out of season but I don't care, I was feeling it this week!). This color is called Got the blues for red by OPI. Now, I'm not a huge fan of OPI because their nail polish takes forever and a day to dry. And on top of that, after you think its dry you bang your nail on something and it messes up! Then you've got to start the process all over again and it's a headache I hate to deal with. This is exactly what happened to me. I always do my toes first to get them out of the way and it had already been a day since I had done them when I go and put on closed shoes they mess up! As for my hands they're not too bad, a quick clear top coat and I'll be good to go. 

BTW, the new Glamour magazine arrived with One Direction on the cover. Is that not perfect or what??

In this video you'll get to see a sneek peek of my new bag which is amazing and I can't get enough of it! It's a gorgeous gray color and the leather feels like high-quality. I purchased this bag at H&M last week. Hope you guys enjoy the video and the music is all by The xx!

June Haul!

Hello girlies! It's the end of the month and I have been shopping for summer like crazy!! Really I was just getting essentials like sunglasses, sandels and some cute dresses. So I wanted to show you what I have collected in the last month or so. Hope you guys like it!

So the first store I'll talk about is Forever 21. If you've been reading my posts for the last two years then you'll know I am an avid XXI shopper! Occasionally they won't have any great buys but on those rare occasions I find everything I'm looking for! Recently, I have found such cute items all super cheap! 

Okay, I went a little overboard and bought three pairs. Usually I like to try on sunglasses cause they always look different on my face but I just bought these online. Even though I like them I'm not in love with them. Well, it's too late to return them so I guess I will survive. 
My favorite pair are the waferer imitations. They came in a matte finish and suit my face nicely. 
Circle lenses, on the other hand, aren't that friendly to my face. I still wear them cause I really don't care but they won't be my "go-to" pair. 

Next, I really needed some casual tees so I picked up these super cute tops! The first is a nice minty green high-low top. It's such a nice color and it has a slouchy, comfortable feel. 
The next one I bought is this gray elephant printed tee! Omg these elephants are so adorable! That's the main reason I bought it. My mom also bought me an aztect tank for the beach and the hot summer days here in MIA. Thank you!
I also purchased two cardigans ( a yellow one and an indigo color which isn't here) at Nordstrom Rack. I really wanted to widen my color options for my cardigans. Love these cause they are 3/4 sleeves and light for the summer.

Then I bought this super cute-edgy belt with spikes and a metal plate on the front. I've seen a lot of youtubers/bloggers wearing something similar to this. So when I found a look-a-like on XXI I had tohave it! It fits perfectly on the waist.

As I've mentioned before I'm not a huge fan of Zara. But lately they have been coming out with great quality items. This gorgeous floral dress is from their new spring/summer collection! I absolutely adore it's flirty flare, the pockets and the low scoop of the back. I also love anything with lots of color and a floral print.

This pair of glitter shoes were on sale for $25! OMG! They are super cute and comfortable! I've been eyeing them for a while now and they finally went on sale. It's funny because I had searched the whole store for flats but couldn't find any in my size. Then, in a pile of other shoes, these babies caught my eye! And they just so happened to be in my size. Winning! hehe

The next pair of shoes I got are a tad bit more expensive but they were 40% off (originally 80 bucks down to 50!). I had been obsessed with these studded/spiked shoes which are adorable and I think I'll put them in a bell jar just to look at their beauty. hehe. Gorgeous!

I also purchased this cute, quilted, Chanel look-a-like, cross body bag for $10! Wow, it's such a joy to find things on sale!

This last item from Zara is such a steal! It cost $50 before and with the sale it was only $30. I love finding great items on sale, it's such an accomplishment!
This deep blue color is so beautiful and I love how structered this little cross-body bag is. Perfect!

Hope you guys enjoyed my Haul post! These items are perfect for the summer and I wanted to share the great deals that are going on now! Have a great day beauties!

OOTW: Vacation Edition

Hello everyone! SO I'm back from my week at the beach and it has been such a relaxing week. So happy the weather has been delightful and my family and I was able to enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean. I love staying on the beach, it's a time for me to just unwind and take a moment to stop everything in my life. I love resting on the sanding, reading a good book and sipping on pina coladas. It's the best fweeling in the world to not do anything at all. Summer vacation is halfway through and I have set myself a goal to take advantage of every single moment. 
Below you will find some of the best shots I took over the week I was there.

Product Review: Bare Minerals Redness Remedy

Hello lovelies!! For you ladies dealing with redness around the cheeks and T zone I have a special post for you! I hope you like it.
Bare Minerals is such a great beauty product line with natural, eco friendly makeup. I have tried their translucent powder and their blushes and have been very happy with the results. 
This Redness Remedy powder is no different. It has given me great results in the past week that I have been using it. It doesn't leave your face oily, powdery, or cakey looking. On the contrary, it eliminates 95% of redness on troublesome areas. Try it out in stores before buying for any allergic reactions or discomfort of any kind.

Nails of the Week: Mint Candy Apple

Hello gorgeous! I've been away on vacation for the past weekend and wanted a cute, simple yet bright and fun color! So I went with Mint Candy Apple by Essie which is a beautiful minty green color. This is more of a spring color but I like to wear any color whenever and don't really follow the rules to the T. I absolutey love it and it's also a great quality nailpolish since it lasts such a long time! My rings are from Forever 21, Macys and the pearl one on my middle finger is vintage!
Absolutely love wearing a bunch of thin rings on my fingers!

So it's July and I have no idea where the time has gone. Feels like it was yesterday that I was starting my summer vacation. Now we're in the middle of it and I still have a whole list of fun things to do! School starts in a month and I'm not exactl excited about that one. I hope the semester is easier and more chill but then again it's college so why bother hoping for that. 
Hope you guys are enjoying your summer vacation (if you have one) and make each day the best it can be!
