LOOK OF THE DAY: Color Blocking AGAIN!!




















Shoes & Feather Earrings (Charlotte Russe)
Belt, Rings & Bracelet (Forever 21)
Clutch (H&M)


Hi Everyone,

I wanted to experiment again with another color blocking look. I found this fabulous dress in one of my ultimate favorite stores now and the minute I lay eyes on this dress it was love at first sight.  I just knew I had to have it. NOW the shoes...after searching and searching for the perfect Turquoise platform heels and not wanting to pay an arm and a leg for them, I almost had a heart attack when I saw them at Charlotte Russe for only $20.00. YES!!! twenty dollars. They were having a fabulous shoe sale and walked out with 3 pairs of shoes for only $20.00 each pair.

Anyway also wanted to mention that I am coming back with more beauty posts and the only reason why I been doing a lot of "LOOK OF THE DAY" posts is because that's what you all been asking for. :-)
Whenever I don't do an outfit post I get emails asking for them and since this is YOUR BLOG your wish is my command. Also putting together a Q&A video for you guys to get to know me better. I have some many emails from you guys asking things about me so I decided that instead of writing back to each one of you individuality I'll just go ahead a do a video answering all your questions. Stay tuned coming up next week.

P.S. How are you liking my new Banner?  Wink!!

LOOK OF THE DAY: My Sex In The City Shoes!!!






















Romper & Clutch (Love Culture)
Wearing as Belt (Clutch Strap)
Shoes (Urbanog.com)
Accessories (Forever 21)


Finally I'm featuring one of  my "Cheap Fabulous Finds" posts. Remember back in March, I found these amazing Sex In The City shoes (See Post Here). Well I have been wanting to wear them in one of my "LOOK OF THE DAY" posts but kept forgetting.

Girls whenever I wear these shoes, I get stopped by so many random girls asking me where I got them.  They ask if I paid hundreds of dollars to get them.  ME???, paying that much for a pair of shoes, NEVER!!!!! Let me tell you, they're so comfortable and fun to wear. Hopefully you can still find them and if you do get them...trust me you'll love them!

And also do you see my pink belt that I used to accessorize my romper? well you'll  never guess what it is...YES it's my clutch strap!!! :)  When I put the outfit together my BFF (aka photographer) felt like it was missing something so he literally just took the strap off my clutch and VOILA!! the outfit was completed! ;-)

Kisses everyone and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

YOU Got $10? If so, here are 10 Beautiful Ways to Spend them.

Hi my lovely readers,

As you all know me by now I'm the budget girl and although it'd be nice to be able to spend over $200 on a moisturizer or $1,200 on a fabulous cocktail dress, but unfortunately I can't nor be able to splurge in such items anytime soon.

BUT

Happily, there are more than a few wonderful makeup products and beautifying regimens to be had for less than the price of a movie or lunch out with the girls!! so check them out dolls.

So here they are "10 Beautiful Ways to Spend $10"




Buy a beautiful blush

Pick up a Mode Glide and Glow 3-in-1 Blush Highlighter Stick, $4, and you'll have an easily blendable, lightweight cheek stain whose natural minerals and mica impart a beautiful, just-kissed glow. Plus, you'll be doing your skin -- and the earth -- a favor. All Mode products use only organic ingredients and are produced in "non-wasteful" packaging. Inexpensive, natural and eco-friendly? Ca-ching.



Get threaded 


Sick of plucking your eyebrows and/or bleaching your mustache? Why not try threading? This ancient Arabic/Indian technique has become all the rage in America because, for one thing, unlike waxing, threading doesn't aggravate your skin or leave behind any telltale redness (so it's the perfect lunch-hour errand). Plus, at a typical salon, you can have your brows threaded for $7-$9 and your upper lip done for a mere $5.






Switch up your hair color

For $9 you can go from mousy brown to fiery red in just 10 minutes using Clairol Nice 'n Easy Perfect 10 hair color. It's true! This revolutionary formula is less damaging than traditional ones and the color lasts longer and stays truer. "It puts salon color to shame,"
So go ahead and changed it up..Why not?








Get a (partial) rubdown

With our hectic, chock-full schedules, who has the time (or money) for a full body massage?

Whether you get it done at the mall, at a nail salon or even your local Whole Foods, a chair massage will typically find you seated in an ergonomically designed chair as the masseuse manipulates your neck, back and shoulder muscles (those that can be adversely affected by sitting at a desk all day) on top of your clothes for the going rate of a dollar a minute. Think a short rubdown won't make any difference? Think again. A study done by the Touch Research Institute in Miami revealed that regular 15-minute chair massages reduce stress, anxiety and depression! Oh, and they feel heavenly too.



Revisit a classic perfume


Love's Baby Soft by Dana, $9.99 is a classic scent that many of us grew up with because, well, it's inexpensive and teen/tween friendly. Launched in 1974, the familiar pink perfume is classified as "a refined, gentle floral fragrance" that boasts a blend of florals, it smells much better than its small price tag would indicate and is teensy enough to toss into your gym bag or glove box to keep you powdery  fresh  at all times.



Get a polish change

If paying for a bi-weekly manicure isn't in your budget, why not indulge in a professional polish change instead? No matter how well you're able to paint your own nails, a pro can out do you -- there's just something about a professional job that looks, well, professional. And, at an average of $7-$10 it's not cost-prohibitive. Added bonus? It's a great way to try that latest color trend without laying out the cash for a whole bottle when odds are you're only going to wear it once anyway. Go on, get one. You know you want to.








Reach for a minty-fresh gloss

CoverGirl Wetslicks Amazement Lip Gloss, $5.99 is a rare (un-gooey) gloss that adds shine and color effectively, plus the added peppermint oil (courtesy of Crest) gives it a delightful tingle that also works to keep breath minty fresh.










Sip a smoothie

Next time you're craving a sumptuous treat, why not indulge in something that's as good for you as it is delicious? While making a smoothie at home can guarantee that it contains nothing but healthy ingredients, some retail establishments, like Jamba Juice, also serve up real fruit drinks. "Jamba Juice makes plenty of real-deal smoothies, but their menu is sullied with more than a few faux-fruit blends." The trick, as Zinczenko says, is to "Just make sure you choose the right one." When it comes to tasting great and offering up the best beauty-boosting ingredients, any of the "all fruit" options, which boast "just fruit and juice" and fewer than 250 calories in a 16 oz. cup -- are a good bet. In particular, the "Five Fruit Frenzy" and "Pomegranate Paradise" pack a good antioxidant punch that (among other benefits) is great for helping your skin fight free radicals. And, at just $3.85, it's healthy for your wallet too.





Treat your bod to a delicious oil

The light sesame-infused formula of Neutrogena Body Oil, $9.99 not only smells divine but is so weightless and sheer that it seems to vanish the moment you rub it on, leaving behind soft, silky, luminous skin. Tip: Apply immediately after the shower while skin is still moist or pour a capful into your bath for a peerless skin-smoothing soak.







Indulge your hair

Proving that you really don't have to spend a million to feel like a million is the perennial hair care fave, the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner, $3.25. When it comes to heavy-duty conditioning, this yummy smelling Aussie product has no equal. Doesn't weigh hair down. Makes hair soft but manageable." All for less than $5. Doesn't really get much better than that.
