I never thought I’d be much of a sneaker girl but here I am, asking for sneakers for my birthday. Hah! What can I say? They’re comfortable and some of them are so cute, I just can’t resist. Puma has been my favorite so far, hands down. I’m sure the Rihanna Fenty collaboration kick started my love for Puma gear. No surprise there. Speaking of, who’s excited for the new release? I’ve already added March 9th to my google calendar. I desperately need to those pink slides and sneakers. Just too damn good.
I’m currently anticipating a few things. Veuve Clicquot’s Carnaval on Saturday (March 4th), which is going to loads of fun and flowing with champagne. Can’t be mad at any of that.
My 29th birthday is also around the corner, kind of excited about it. I usually get birthday blues but so far so good. Keeping things very low key, going to enjoy dinner with my favorite people. Very much looking forward to it.

Honey, I’m home!
I’ve been gone for a hot minute, yeah that’s an understatament. But you know, life happens. SHRUGS.
I’m currently contemplating what to write, all while swaying to some Foster The People and balancing a very sleepy pug on my lap. I guess I can’t complain. Life is pretty sweet. It’s been almost 4 months since I married my beau of 9 years. SWOON. I’ll get into all that in a separate post, where I’ll gush over my wedding and what a dream it was. Heavy heavy sigh.
In the meantime, I leave you with this total 90’s esque look. Black high-waisted pants with a silky top showing a little midriff. A dash of pink romance and some glittery gold, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
P.S I truly wanted to start this post with “I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the jump off”, but I don’t think you guys are ready for that..
P.S #2 If you sang the song in your head, without looking it up.. well I ADORE you. ♡
Till next time

I recently celebrated my birthday, my 28th to be exact. I won’t lie, that day I woke up feeling pretty bummed but as the day progressed I felt better and actually starting feeling lucky. There’s nothing that compares to the feeling of being loved by so many, not gifts or anything outside of that. At the end of the day, I’m human and it happens!
Okay, enough sappiness. Now on to the good stuff, I decided to treat myself to this KILLER bodysuit as an early birthday gift. The moment I saw it on the website, I snagged it right away. I didn’t even think about it. The criss cross back detail is something that I haven’t really seen out there, I’m completed obsessed. I recently found out there’s a white version of it and I’m completely tempted. I’m already aching to wear it again, it goes with everything!
I paired it with this choker that I’ve recently purchased off of eBay (one of my favorite alternatives). I’ve been lusting over a thick leather (faux leather, whatever) choker for quite some time. The one that I originally wanted was a Givenchy one but after countless of times of not being able to find the one I wanted, I gave up and resorted to eBay. It was around $30 dollars or so and it’s exactly what I wanted. A great statement piece and saved plenty of dollars compared to the other price tag. HAH!

You know you want something really really bad when you wait for MONTHS till it goes back in stock and purchase it the minute you get an exciting Back in Stock email. HAH. I’ve been obsessing over it for like ever. The combination of all the pastels just make me so damn happy. Let’s not forget the cozy factor it has. What a dream.
Another obsession of mine at the moment is putting slightly deep waves in my hair. Gives me total retro glam vibes, and it’s a great feeling when your hair looks like you totally made an effort. Ha. The tool I use is Irresistible Me’s saphire 8 curling wand. It includes 8 sizes and it is b-o-m-b. I obtain these waves with the thickest barrel size they have, it goes best with my short hair. Love it. I actually want to do a tutorial of how I achieve it so keep a lookout for that!

When it comes down to getting ready, my makeup routine has definitely changed over the years. It’s always exciting to find new tips and tricks to achieve that perfect look you want to achieve. My current obsession now is concealing. This makes a huge difference in your face and I love it. I like to place several small dots of my chosen concealer underneath my eyes to block out my dark circles. This girl needs all the help she can get in that area, haha. I then like to blend it out with a damp Real Technique’s sponge, it gives it a nice smooth finish. Once that’s done , I like to place a dot of the erase paste brightening concealer in the inner and outer corner of my under eye and blend it inwards with my ring finger. Very simple step but you see the results immediately. This products is great for a little more concealing and brightening the area of your choice. I’m obsessed, I wish I would have known about it earlier. The last step is dabbing some finishing powder in the area and waiting a couple of minutes, a little “baking” action as they call it. This brightens and mattifies the skin. Once it’s been set, I like to take a big brush and dust the remaining products away. I finished the rest of my face and voila, all done!
