Snow Day

“Don’t Wait for the perfect moment, 
take the moment and make it perfect.”



Out of all the wonderful things in nature I absolutely love the snow. I’ve always preferred the Winter over the Summer simply because in my opinion, it’s easier to stay warm when it’s cold than to stay cool when it’s hot. I can walk around with coats, blankets, and scarfs when I’m freezing but I can’t walk around naked when I’m burning up (yucky). Aside from this, I love the look of winter, trees covered in snow is my definition of the season, although, LA is the last place anyone would ever find snow. I was dying to spend some time in the snowy mountains the whole month of January and finally, this past Saturday my sister, my boyfriend, his cousin, and I were able to drive up to Big Bear Lake. 



There was a mixture of fog, rain, and snow on our way up to the lake. When we got off the car everything had stopped and the ground was completely dressed in white. As we walked around trying to find the perfect hill to slide down on, it began to snow...and let me tell you...it was beautiful!



We spent about an hour trying to build this pesky little snow man, who honestly wasn’t so little at all, he was almost my height...which is still kind of tall right? when it was time to crown him with a nose, we conveniently found a carrot laying around (i know, it’s strange). 


On our drive back home, the sky was the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Sunsets have always been my favorite, I can never ignore them, I always have to stop and stare.




Hopefully you liked these pictures as much I do and I’d also like to say
that if you have ever woken up to a front lawn covered in snow I am very jelaous.

Grey Is the New Black

“All our dreams can come true, If we have 
the courage to pursue them.”
- Walt Disney


I’ve been wearing black pants and black leggings everyday (aside from skirts and dresses of course) for who knows how long, no other color, just black. I went on a little hunt to a place down in Belmont Shore and found these grey pants/ leggings that I absolutely love! They’re so comfortable yet dressy. The store I got them at is called Heavenly Couture, they sell all their clothes for $16. yup $16. Everything from shirts to dresses, to jackets and sweaters. Some things are better quality than others, but over all it’s a really good buy for the price. I picked up a few things on my visit there last week, I’m thinking of sharing those with you guys in a future post. 

I paired the pants with a black shirt to keep it neutral. I’m not quite sure why i’m liking dark colors at the moment, maybe because I can add almost any makeup look and it’ll look amazing. 


Shirt (can’t remember... hehe)
Pants (Heavenly Couture $16.00)
Shoes (Forever 21 $29.99)

Beauty Haul

“To Live is the rarest thing in the world.
 Most people just exist.”
- Oscar Wilde 


I’ve been doing some serious product shopping throughout this whole month and I think it’s time to share them with you before there’s way to many to fit into one picture. Ok, so some of these products should’ve been in my life a while ago (sigh) but i always talked myself out of buying them. 


 Benefit Porefessional 
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray


I absolutely love all three of these! My makeup has been at its best since I got them. I can honestly see a difference in how my makeup looks as a whole and the All Nighter spray keeps my makeup on for hours and hours and hours........




Urban Decay Naked 3
NYX Runway Collection in Haute Model
NYX single shadow in Heat
NYX baked shadow in Mademoiselle


Naked 3? Amazing. The NYX Runway collection has the most gorgeous shimmery shadows that can give a neutral eye an entire new look. NYX single shadows are always so pigmented and these two are no exception.





NYX matte bronzer in Deep
Elf duo blush and bronzer
Tarte blush in Peaceful
Nars Orgasm



The NYX bronzer is now one of my favorites, its super easy to apply and to blend. The Elf duo is part of their holiday gift sets, both the bronzer and the blush are shimmery but are not too overpowering. Tarte’s Peaceful and Nars’ Orgasm are amazing, i can’t explain it, they just are. 




Maybelline MasterKajal coal pencil in Sapphire Twilight
NYX Candy Glitter Liner in French Champagne
Maybelline Lipcolor in Orange Aglow
Maybelline Lipcolor in Glistening Amber
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Rouge Parfait


Maybelline’s coal pencil I found to be perfect to use on the waterline. The glitter liner by NYX is saturated with a good amount of glitter compared to others i’ve tried, this one by far is my favorite. I have yet to try the NYX’s Rouge Parfait, but let me tell you, it looks amazing on my hand. Both Orange Aglow and Glistening Amber are nude lip glosses, perfect for pairing with dramatic eyes.


What have been your finds so far? 
Which of these products have you tried?

Cold Weather Essentials

“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”
-Maya Angelou 


Hi guys!! Happy New Year!! I’m very excited about this being the first post of the year! Let me just say that 2014 felt like a blink, it was an amazing year, but I’m excited to see what 2015 is going to bring. I have so many ideas and goals for this blog and I’m so so excited for you guys to see them.

Since its still January I decided to share some items that I find to be most important during the cold weather. We are having a pretty unpredictable Winter here in LA, there are days where a warm jacket is needed, days where we have to bundle up just enough, days where we have to pop out our rain boots, and there are also days where we have woken up in the middle of the night in sweat. For those very random cold or chilly days I usually reach for a beanie, an oversized sweater, leggings, and some boots.


Beanie
I usually like to wear crochet beanies to keep my ears warm, this 
one here was around $5, you can find these almost anywhere
for around the same price.

Sweater
I like to wear light weight but warm sweaters. This one is the cutest 
and warmest sweater ever and I absolutely love the pattern. I 
bought this one at a local clothing store, I can’t remember 
the price but it wasn’t very expensive.

Leggings 
The leggings I like to wear have fleece inside, which are great for 
keeping legs warm. They were about $5 at a local store.

Boots 
My favorite boots are by Michael Kors, they’re very comfortable 
and they keep my feet nice and warm. 





How are you enjoying Winter? What helps you stay warm?
