Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 Ad Campaign

Afternoon my loves,

Today is such a crazy day with Hurricane Sandy coming around. My town has been under some crazy stress and I live by a river. It's only been wind action causing issues with power, I'm hoping that Sandy doesn't cause so much damage...but I pray everyone is doing okay.

To liven up the day and this week I'll be doing a few fashion based post on some fall 2012 ad campaigns. I've been really intrigued with these ads and decided to share it with you all. Hope you all truly enjoy it.

The first ad campaign that I've been loving is the Alexander McQueen ads -- his line is just pure gold for me. It's always out of the norm, colorful and fashionable. Truly love them.

Red and pink ...


Giveaway ... Coming Soon

Good morning my loves!

I hope everyone's Sunday is going well! Today I wanted to share with you all something I'm working on ... my first blog giveaway. I am currently at 105 readers and once I get to 110 I will be doing my first giveaway ever. I already have the prize together:
Above is quick snapshot of all the prizes. I have some Lancome products, Revlon lipsticks, Rimmel lipstick, L'Oreal, Sinful Colors, Carmex, and so many other brands to share.

I'm pretty excited about this giveaway. Now one person will not win this whole thing. I plan to do either two winners or do another giveaway, but still working out the logistics for it.

I really can't wait to start my giveaway and hope you all do participate in it.

Thank you to all my readers! Really do appreciate it!


Beauty Blogazons | Weekly Round Up - 10/27


NOTW | GoGo Dancer on Vacation

This weeks NOTW is incorporating a color I rarely wear and a color I wear too much off -- red & nude. I was browsing through my little collection and I came across a few reds, purples and greens that I have, but never worn. I decided that since this is was the year of exploring my fashion and style why not retry the red nail polish ordeal.

Rimmel Temptation Lipstick Review & Swatches

Rimmel Lasting Finish in Temptation

Rimmel Temptation Lipstick is a deep red, close to a burgundy kind of shade. Although not hugely noticeable, it contains some fine red and gold shimmer. On the lips, you can see small flecks of glitter here and there, but it's not a shimmery shade overall.

This lipstick is very creamy and moisturizing, but it doesn't move or feather on my lips so much like other red lipsticks do. It's not drying at all and it doesn't settle into the fine lines on my lips. This is a red that I can rock without  a lip liner which I love.


Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream

Face Time!

Here's yet another skincare fav of mine. Yes, I've been on a roll with these skincare products. I just have so many that I want to share and knockout. This skincare product is a moisturizer that I recently (about 2 months ago) found and have fallen in love with to the max!

How To Use


Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Toner

Hello my loves!

Today I wanted to share another favorite skincare product of mine. This skincare product is apart of my everyday routine (morning and night) and it's been working wonders! It has to do with the step after cleansing or clarifying your face. Yes, if you guessed toner then you are right! I have been obsessed with finding the right toner since I was introduced to toners back in '10 and I'm so glad that I have found the perfect toner for me and my amazing skin.

This toner is the Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner:

First Day At Work...Tomorrow

Hello my loves,

I know that this is a late night post, but I wanted to say -- tomorrow is my first day working at the Lancome counter in Macy's (I start at the Clinique counter Thursday) and I'm pretty excited. Because Macy's has an all black wardrobe look finding an outfit won't be complicated. As far as hair and makeup I'm still stumped. Since my hair is short, I don't know what I can possibly do with it besides a bun. As for makeup, I want to do a vampy lip. I own about 6 vampy purples and deep wine shades that I've never worn, so I figured why not tomorrow.
The look that helped me get the job!
The eye makeup will be really basic -- a nice shimmery eye with a bold, vampy lip. Blush may be purple as well. The lipsticks I'm deciding between are:
  • Wet n Wild in 908C- Sugar Plum Fairy
  • CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Euphoria
  • Milani in Blackcherry
I did realize that Sugar Plum Fairy (908C) and Euphoria are the same color expect that one is matte and another is creamy. I did mix Blackcherry with both and I loved the lip look and so did my boyfriend. Tomorrow I plan to do a get ready with me video (which probably won't be uploaded until the next day) showing you what my outfit was, how I did my hair and my makeup look.

I will also do a full blown motd/ ootd video as well. I don't start my shift until 2:45pm. My morning starts at 5:30 as I will be getting back into Yoga and Meditation early in the morning and I plan to start getting ready around 8:30ish so that I have enough time to record and possibly edit the video.

Any who, let me stop blogging on and just say ciao for now my loves!


My Love of Perfumes...Part II

Good morning my loves!

I decided to at least try and have one post up for today since I have orientation for work at 2pm until 8pm and since I'm up and wide awake, why not do another perfume haul.  I did my first perfume haul on Thursday which I was shocked because my post helped a fellow reader out -- brownie points for me -- you can see the first haul here, but this is another haul!

As I stated in the first haul, I've found some new fragrances that are "impressions" of high end perfumes -- or knock-off's as we call them -- but to be inexpensive and impressions they are AMAZING and closely match the real perfume (I've done my research and smelled the real perfumes). I won't be going into depth about each perfume because a review will be coming on each one individually, but let's just get into the haul shall we...
I went back to Pay Half, which seems to be my holy grail store lately, and I picked three more perfumes since they have the ongoing 3 for $10 deal...yes 3 full size bottles that have 3.3 fl oz of product for a total of $10! Since I already had a list of perfumes that I wanted to get I just picked up these three.


My Love of Perfumes...Part I

Hello my loves,

Today post is about a few new perfumes that I've purchased over the past 2 months of me living in NJ. I will say that I was never a perfume kind of girl, I was more so the body splash diva. However, over the course of this move -- I'm a true perfume lover!

I just wanted to show you all a few perfumes I have been purchasing while I've been out here in NJ. All of these perfumes will be reviewed separately here on my blog and my youtube channel. Here's a quick snap that I took today of the ones that I have so far:
Even though it's not a lot, it is a true start for someone who was never really a perfume woman.

NOTW | Blue Spotted My Tears

Hello my loves,

This is just a normal NOTW kind of post to share with you all my nails and I also did a pedi as well. Now, I started working for Macy's yesterday and because we have to wear all black I decided to opt for bright nails for the first week of work to just liven up my days and I've already gotten a few compliments on them.

I opted for a nice creme blue because I haven't worn a blue nail polish in months and I paired it with a gray to give it that "Fall" kind of appeal. Then I had to add more pops of color with a neon yellow and coral...I am definitely missing those summer nights now...
