FOTD: Dolce Vita

After a really long week at work this weekend I was able to enjoy my self. A friend of mine invited me to a jewelry party. I had never been to one so it sounded pretty interesting. We went to a friend's house in Queens and it was about 13 girls all together. At first I wasn't going to buy much but they had some really good deals so I ended up spending a lot more then I had planned... whoops. It's okay though because the jewelry was so beautiful and I can't wait until it comes in. All the girls decided to go out after the party for a few drinks and we literally took over the bar. It was so funny and even though I couldn't drink because I'm currently taking antibiotics I still had a blast and also ended up with some beautiful jewelry. Just wanted to share the look I had on for the night. I wore my new Forever21 shirt and wanted to go with a bright colored look. Hope you like it and let me know if there is a specific look you want me to do or anything else you might want me to write about. Hope you all had a good weekend !!

Fotd: Blue Green Leapord

 I haven't really gone out since my birthday which was awhile ago. After I came back from India I finally decided to go out on Saturday night. The club I ended up going to had a special Whitney Houston tribute night. Well let me tell you it was an interesting night. There were people there as old as my rents if not older. Me and my girlfriend kind of fell out of place and wondered if we were at the right place the whole night lol. We still ended up having a blast and danced the night away to Whitney :) Hope you enjoy the look and if there is anything else you would like me to do a look on please let me know. Thanks

Update: I know it's been forever

I'm so sorry for not posting in forever but just wanted to let you all know that I was actually on vacation and went out of the country. I went to India to see all my family and to visit my grandma. I usually go once a year to see visit everyone. My trip was lots of fun. All I did was just hangout, bummed around and ate lots n lots of food. I'm a big foodie so usually when I'm visiting I eat anything and everything and then later regret it because I always end up getting sick from all the junk. But I can't help my self I get greedy knowing that certain things are not available back in the states.

The weather was pretty nice in India the days were warm and the nights got a little cold but I was able to get away with a light cardigan most of the nights and never even needed a jacket. I didn't do much shopping since I didn't need much but I did end up getting a pair of silver shoes to go with my new Indian outfit I bought. All in all it was a much needed vacation and I had an amazing time.  It was so good to see everyone and to get away from everything for awhile. I'm sad that it's over because I really miss my family but I know I will back soon. I just wanted to apologoze for not posting in almost a month. I have a few posts coming up but please let me know if there is anything in specific you would like me to write about.

Mac Haul - Iris Apfel, Naturally and a few others

       Today I wanted to share with you some of the things I have picked up recently from some Mac Collections. As we all know it Mac comes out with a collection like ever other week and It's so hard to keep up and a killer for my wallet. The first two collections that came out after Christmas were Daphne Guinness and Tour De Fabulous. Although both these collections had some really pretty things I only picked up one item per collection. I bought the Cremesheen Glass in Narcissus from Daphne Guinness  which is a beautiful dark plummy color and I don't have anything similar to it in my collection. I also only picked up the lipglass Tour De Fabulous from the other collection. Out of the 11 lipglasses this was the most unique to me. It's a peachy/coral color.  I wanted a few other colors but didn't need them since I had similar ones already.

       The Next two Collections were the big ones for me. Let's start with Iris first I didn't even look twice at this collection and before I knew it all the lipsticks sold out within the day the collection came online. I was pretty Shocked and thought I would be okay to go to my local counter to pick up a few items. The day they came out to my counter I called them up in the evening to put a few things on hold and to only find out that all the lipsticks were sold out :( I was really upset with my self for not getting the things I wanted when I had the chance and the following day I called around a few stores and was able to get 2 lipsticks and 1 eyeshadow. I got Party Parrot l/s, Flamingo l/s and Robin's Egg e/s. But I still wanted the lipstick Pink Pigeon and I called about 8 mac counters but they were all out and I gave up hope on ever getting it. I'm happy with the two I did get because they are gorgeous and Very Vibrant. The texture is amazing as well and they are new matte finish. These two have become my new bright favourites. Then I went to my counter to check out the Naturally collection. This collection is  the complete opposite of Iris Apfel and is similar to collections like Blonde, Red and Brunette and N collection. It has really soft neutral lipsticks and glosses . It also has a few mineralize eyeshadows but nothing stood out to me enough to pick up. I ended up with one lipstick 2 glosses 1 blush and 1 mineralize skinfinish. I was most excited for the blush I got from this collection because the color is just amazing. It's a Warm Apricot and I own a lot of peachy/corally colors but nothing like this. I haven't worn this blush yet but I can't wait to try it on. I was also excited for the #286 e/s brush in this collection. This brush was in one of the Holiday Brush sets and I got to try it when I bought that and loved it so much that I picked up 2 of them since it's limited edition.

       Lastly I picked up a few eyeshadows that are being discontinued and I figured I shall back them up now since who knows when they will come back again :( some of the goodbyes are actually really nice colors that I already owned and use quite often so this had to happen. These purchases were completely not planned but I went into panic mode and had to pick them up. Hope you like my haul and let me know if you picked up anything from any of the collections. If you did what are some of your favorite things you bought ?

Fotd: Naked2

 I have had my Naked2 palette for awhile now. I ordered it they day Urban Decay announced it on twitter and was lucky enough to get it the first time before it kept getting sold out. When I received it I was very excited to play with it but then it just sat on my table for days. I would look at it and then put it away but never actually used it. I was also going to write up a full review of the Naked 2 palette and compare it to the original naked palette. But every blog and site and YT vid had a review on it so I decided never to post it. It's an awesome palette with some beautiful neutral colors the texture of the eyeshadows is really nice as well. If you have the original then I'm not sure if you really need the Naked2 but I have really enjoyed mine a lot.

So enough with the rambling let's get back to the Fotd. Tonight I went out for dinner and I knew I wanted to use my Naked2 and I also knew I wanted to use colors that I had not used before. I came up with this look were I used YDK, Snakebite ( which I think is my favorite color in the palette) and a little bit of Busted at the outer corners. I paired this look up with a pink shimmery gloss because I really wasn't feeling a lipstick. I hope you guys enjoy this look. Let me know if you also have the Naked2 palette and what your favorite color is ?

Revlon Lip Butters

Revlon lip butters I mean who hasn't heard about them ? Everyone and there grandma is talking about this product lol. Some love it and some are not a big fan. Me on the other hand have fallen in love with this product. So when I first heard about the lip butters I wasn't too sure what to think and I was on a hunt to get them but were unable to find them anywhere. I got lucky about three weeks ago when I went to Ulta near my house. I was so excited to see a huge display of Revlon Lip Butters. My mom had never seen me get so excited over a drugstore product before and after I told her all about the lip butters she even ended picking up a few.

I have been using them for about three weeks now and I have a total of 6 of them . I'm not a big drugstore makeup person (not that there is anything wrong with drugstore products but I never get a break from Mac or Sephora) but I have become addicted to these babies. They are super creamy and moisturizing and give my lips that dew look without looking overly shiny. A lot of people have been saying that they are not really moisturizing instead they are drying to the lip but I haven't had that problem yet. I have noticed my self re applying them more often then I do my regular lipsticks but that's probably because they are a balm like lipstick with medium amount of pigmentation and are sort of like a linted lip balm. They last about 2-3 hours on my lips.

I'm very impressed with the quality of them and they are turning up all over the place and are easier to find now. Most of the Pharmacy's have Revlon products on sale where you can buy one and get one half off. This is a perfect time to try them out if you were interested in the Lip Butters they retail for $7.49. Out of the 6 that I have Tutti Frutti has to be my number one favourite and then Cherry Tart.

Have you tried the Lip Butters ? What are your thoughts on them? Drying or Moisturizing ?

A Day In the City

Last Wednesday I went into the city with my mom. We had to go to the Indian Consulate for some paper work. So I figured we make it into a fun day in the city. It was super cold and windy but we still had a great time. We walked down 5th avenue looking at window displays and all the holiday decorations. NYC is such a magical place during the holiday time and it's absolutely beautiful. We grabbed lunch at TAO (love this place) and had some lychee martinis yumm. After lunch we just browsed through some stores and I ended up buying some things at the Forever 21 on 5th ave. After we walked to Time Square and I went to Inglot. I had been meaning to go there for awhile since I wanted to check out there rainbow shadows. I ended up with a few things but the one thing that I was most excited about was there Duraline. I'm so happy I finally picked this up. Awhile back I had bought Inglot's gel eyeliner's and all mine cracked down the middle. But with Duraline which is like a mixing medium I can bring my dead liners back to Life :). The first thing I did when I came home was play with my gel liners and duraline and was amazed at how fluently the liners glided on my eyes. You can also mix duraline with pigments and shadows to make your own liners. I'm excited to play around with this more and come up with some fun looks. So I just wanted to share my goodies and some pics with you all. The window displays at Bergdorf Goodman are world famous and I was lucky enough to see them this year. They were so BEAUTIFUL!! My pictures don't do them any justice it's just something you have to see in person. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and let me know if you have ever been to NYC and seen the beautiful window Displays or even the Christmas Tree ?
