I was trying to find a pic online from the latest SATC 2 movie where I know Carrie wore a donut bun, but can’t seem to find it. This is the closest one from past seasons episode. Buns are almost a staple in her hairstyle regimen. So I thought I’d recreate her signature look with […]

It’s funny where I get my inspirations sometimes. Like this one for instance out of my laziness to find the remote and change away from the latino channel – the spanish version of Dead or Alive came on and the first scene that I saw was Devon Aoki as the Ninja Princess Katsume in this […]

This post is a bit late since this happened during restaurant week in Feb. Yes I know. I’m a slacker. Anywho, it was to be a night of fine-dining then Pasha Lounge afterwards so we girls tried to dress up a bit to make it more fun.I decided to try out my new 1/2″ curler […]

Update 7.13.09 – I’ve actually discontinued using this product about 2 months ago since I had minor breakouts along my chin and for some reason, getting red spots on my cheeks. I’m not sure if it’s just my skin being sensitive to the ingredients but I rather not risk continuing to use it. I hope […]

Ever have lashes that are just too stubborn that you can’t do much with them? My lashes have gone through regular mascaras that just make them droop down and run down my face, which is why I’ve always used waterproof mascara. They have also gone through spider-looking lashes that smudge under my lower lashlines. After […]

Hey everyone! Sooo, I don’t know if you know this, but I am a little bit obsessed with Frozen. Just a tad. Anyways, I’ve been wanting to do a tutorial on Elsa’s makeup and hair look during her coronation and also her “Let It Go” scene but finally was able to find some time to […]

So I was supposed to be up in Philly this weekend for a friend’s wedding but unfortunately with the blizzard here, it would not have been a wise decision to drive up so I canceled it. I do feel bad though, but will be sending them a gift so hopefully that will make up for […]

I am a huge fan of Dior skin products especially the DiorSnow Sunscreen, so when this BB cream came out earlier this year in four shades, I definitely wanted to give it a try.

The one thing that I have been stocking up for the past year and even picked up two more this fall were blanket scarves. I have no shortage of them currently and have been interchanging them according to my mood. When I first started wearing them, however, they took some time to get used to […]

Hello and happy Tuesday! I’m thankful to be living in the DC area where I can still hold onto summer just a little bit longer. It could be global warming, but the cold haven’t been setting in until mid-November and in some years, we had warmth up until mid-December. Although I love the summer heat […]
