Hope all of you had a wonderful Memorial Day! I spent the day at home, dog-sitting, and watching movies. Anywho, let’s get to the fun stuff! As you know, I’m a tech-y type of girl. When I received this MacBook case with my blog name and my picture plastered on the sleeve, I was so shocked and super elated! What a cool laptop sleeve to own instead of the plain jane one colored sleeve. Since carrying my  case to school, meetings, and where ever else, it has definitely been a conversation starter.

But don’t worry. There are plenty of tech items you can personalize with caseable. Samsung Galaxy phones, iPhones, iPads, Kindles, etc. Check out caseable’s full list options here. You are a cool person right? Well, you should have cool accessories as well!

If you decide to purchase, please let me know which case you decided to get!

Black on Black

Yesterday, I spent quality time with myself to go shopping. LOL Not clothes shopping (which I’m very proud of myself), but beauty product shopping. One of my goals for this year is to focus on the health of my skin. I want to get rid of dark spots and blemishes on my face and body. I’ve been researching products that will even out my complexion as well as fight my dry skin. I found a lot of things and I also stumbled upon a local company that makes bath essentials as well. Once I try their products, I’ll give you an update on how I liked them.

I’m so excited for the Superbowl this Sunday! I’m not really going for any team. Of course, the highlight is going to be seeing Beyonce perform which I know will be memorable.
January has gone by so fast! Let’s encourage each other to stick to the goals we set to do in 2013!
Any who, I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Have a good weekend!

BTW: There is a survey on the right of the screen! Please put in your input! 🙂

Summer Lips

Since Summer is coming to an end and Fall is around the corner, I thought I’d show you some of my go to lipsticks that I have been wearing. These colors have been on every trip I’ve been on and probably stashed in my purse while I was running errands.

I’m super excited to be wearing deep red lips for Fall. I adored it last Autumn/Winter and I knew it would be a trend that would return. I’ve even started to purchase a few things for my Fall wardrobe, but I feel pressured! I’m really not ready to let go of Summer. Summer please don’t go!!

Left to Right: Peach Stock, Siss, Hug Me, Morange, Violetta (LE).

What were some of your favorite colors to wear this Summer? Which colors are you ready to start wearing for Fall? Let me know!

Picnic Denim

Denim Shirt: H&M | Shorts: Urban Outfitters | Sneakers: F21 | Jewelry: Bakers, F21, Aldo | Watch: Guess | Sunglasses: RayBen

I’ve seen bright orange lips on everyone. Celebrities like Solange, and even models on the runway have been rocking it lately. I went on the search to find the shade and I found Morange by MAC which is a scary color straight from the tube. I really had to manipulate this color to fit me by using a flesh tone lip pencil that would blend well with my skin tone.

Would you wear bright orange lipstick?

If not, TRY IT! I dare ya!


Red Light

Hi loves! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I’ve been home all day with the puppies watching Food Network and HGTV. I can’t wait to buy a house! lol
Decided to play in a little makeup today. I’ve been dying to try OCC’s Red Light which is a Cranberry Red Shimmer I purchased from IMATS at the beginning of this year. 

Transition: Inglot 450 & MAC Texture
Outer Corner: MAC Carbon
Highlight: MAC Ricepaper
Liner: MAC Blacktrack
Mascara: Blinc

PS: I’ve ran out of mascara and I’m looking for a new one. Any suggestions on what brand I should try?

Nicki Minaj’s MAC Lipstick

“Pink Friday” MAC Lipstick
You guessed it! MAC is creating a lipstick for Nicki Minaj’s new album Pink Friday! I was so excited when I heard the news! Great idea MAC! Some sources say the color will be a mixture of Girl About Town and Pink Nouveau.

Make sure you get her album on iTunes!

24th BirthDay: á la Montreal

Maple Lovin’ Montreal 2010

Had so much fun with Trevor, Justin and LaDean this past weekend! We definitely celebrated my birthday in style!

Rouge Nail Bar was a sure treat. Located on 3790 Boul. St. Laurent Montreal, QC H2W 1X6, Canada was sure a convenient stop while shopping! It was such a cute shop but no where for our sweeties to sit. There was only seating for clients. As far as the technicians, well… let’s just say they are skimpy on the polish. And they only AIR dry. I’ve never been to such a classy nail salon before.. so maybe I’m overreacting! I was a little disappointed because they didn’t have the previous line of OPI (Hong Kong Collection) which I was looking forward to trying! 🙁 So I just used OPI’s Chapel of Love. It was a cute color for the end of the summer!

Montreal is such a romantic city! I didn’t want to leave. It was hard packing to head for that 5 hour drive back to Boston. We ate good food and partied every night! Shopping, pampering, time with my favorites, and a beautiful city made my birthday very special!
