Dressing up Your Shorts

Because it's summer everyone can get away with wearing shorts not only in the day time but at night as well.  You can wear them to a dinner date with the boyfriend/hubby or even to catch a movie. They are the perfect accessory to the summer weather. 

A simple staple to dressing up your shorts can be some cute nude wedges with a really nice boyfriend blazer.  Read here on some other easy tips to dressing up those great pair of shorts.




Would you wear this look?

Tag, you're it!

I came across this TAG, thought it might be fun to do.......
 
1) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip-glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?
I think I would rather lose all the palettes and eye shadows...I tend to usually use more of a bare face with minimal mascara and a little bit of a glossy lip.  I rarely use my eye shadows only on special occasions but I'm sure I can work some magic with what I have.
 
2) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
I would rather chop it off, just because I don't like change and taking risks once in a while doesn't hurt!
 
3) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
A coral cheek, to look more natural.

4) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
For sure clothes, I would love to one day buy some vintage pieces.  What girl wouldn't,  right!
 
5) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?
Ummm, this is a weird question, but I would rather apply lipstick as eyeliner....moving on.
 
6) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Tough question, I love the variety of makeup brands they sell at Sephora.  MAC makeup is a little bit too expensive but I love the quality of makeup...do I really have to answer.....
 
7) Would you rather only use one eye shadow color or one lip color the rest of your life?
One lip color works for me....I'm basic.
 
8) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Seriously, who made up these questions, next!


9) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
I love bright nails all around, my favorite nail polishes I always tend to buy are pinks and reds.  It brings attention, and I love having pretty nails.
 
10) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Favorite eye product that's for sure, I always have to have something on my lips, it's a must!
 
11) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
I prefer a messy bun!
 
12) Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip-gloss?
Tough question, I love both so much, next.
 
13) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? Or sharpie them in everyday?
hahaha....
 
14) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
I can do without nail polish, make up is my passion!
 
 
You're next!

New It-Girl

Mila Kunis is moving on up on my list of celebrity style favorites.  It's crazy to think what hiring a stylist can do to your career, right??

  Her fashion style now tends to look more put together. Which brings us to a blast from the past red carpet look.

  She went from this......

To this......



I love how she is taking risks and is not afraid to try new looks in fashion and also in the movie world. What is your favorite Movie/TV role she has played?

Birchbox Experience and Review

For those of you that aren't familiar with Birchbox click here for more details, but it's a monthly subscription of $10/month.  Every month you get a box filled with a couple sample products related to beauty, hair and misc products delivered to your home.  The good thing about it is that if you aren't satisfied with their services you can cancel any time. 

I was anxious for my first delivery from them.....I love the fact that you get an email from them once your box is mailed, which it took a little bit too long but I'm glad it arrived safely. 

Take a look below to see what my box included.....


 This month they collaborated with Designer, Cynthia Rowley.


1. Zoya - Touch Collection Nail Polish in Shay


2. Philosophy Purity - simple one-step facial cleanser


3. Kind - Almond and Apricot wholesome nutrition bar

4. RedKen Shine Spray
5. Ahava Mineral Hand Cream


Can't wait to see next month's box. For those who have joined, what are your thoughts on this service?  Did you experience any problems?  Would you continue to join??

  3. I love checking out flea markets and thrift shops, you never know what you will find. 
  4. My favorite shops are Forever21 and H&M.
  5. I'm addicted to my cell phone, seriously!
  6. I secretly wish I was famous....one day, just wait.
  7. My favorite color is pink.  I use to hate it but it grew on me and now I love everything pink.

wedding bliss

Yesterday my hubby and I celebrated 8th years of marriage, can you believe that!? Yes, he is my high school sweetheart and my soul mate.  We've been together, what feels like an eternity...I love him so much. 



Instead of doing the fancy dinners and all that stuff, we decided to go to happy hour and eat food we really enjoyed, you know what I mean.  After that, we ended up at my cousin's house and just chilled with our close family members and our kids.  Apologizing in advance for the poor quality photos......



Overall, it was a great night and memories were created.

June Favorites

So sad the month of June is over and can't believe how fast the year is going by....but on the bright side, it's July and Summer is here. Yaayy!!

With that said, I would like to share my favorite products I've been using on a daily basis. I know I'm a little late but it's never too late to share these with you.  Today I'm sharing beauty/hair products, one make-up palette, and other faves.  Take a look!



Any beauty addict knows where this palette is from.....Urban Decay's Naked Palette.  All the colors are gorgeous.
Ladies, all I can say is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.  I use Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer which contains SPF, Major A+!
For those of us that use a curling iron or a blow dryer, use this before.  It's a heat resistant spray, it will prevent from damage. 
Scented mini-candles from Bath and Body Works.  I burn them before going to bed.  The scent is Island Colada.

Hope you like my monthly favorites, and please share with me what products you think I should try out.  Have a nice weekend!

Till next time...................................xoxo
