Recent Purchases… and by recent, I mean today

I’ve been on a bit of a shopping kick this week. From a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Christmas Sweater to a new watch, I am all over the map. But I am thrilled by everything I bought, so I wanted to share!

First up is my new TMNT Sweater. I couldn’t resist purchasing this, I will be wearing it to all of my holiday parties this year (I don’t care if I look like a fool!)

Next up, is my new MK Watch! I am pretty excited about this one, as I have wanted a new MK watch for a while now. The combination of rose gold and navy had me in an instant!

I stopped off at Club Monaco and found 3 amazing pieces! I’s pretty excited to wear them, I have already dreamt up some outfit combos with the!  I couldn’t find the proper images of 2 of the items I purchased but you can still get the jist.

Imagine these (pic above), but in dark brown!

Imagine this (pic above), but cream.

I am so excited to wear the pants I purchased. The first pair (being faux, snake print leather, if you couldn’t tell) are just wicked awesome  and the other are just plain fab!

I also did some online shopping (which I haven’t done in a while). I love Hautelook so much. I purchased a couple tunics and a cute strapless silk dress… oh and a leather strapped watch. Yes, I went nuts! But because I bought them from HL, I saved so much money (makes it easier to justify my shopping binge!)

I am too lazy to find the pictures of them but, trust me, they are winners!

Anywho, I’ve curbed my appetite for shopping for the next little while, so while I feel guilty, I know I wont be shopping for a while. Happy Wednesday Fashionistas!


Newest Song Obsession

I think it is pretty self explanatory as to why I love this song. Bruno Mars, good beats & did I mention Bruno Mars?… ’nuff said!

Happy Tuesday Fashionistas!

Things I will always love

It’s a major life changing event when I like/love something for more than a few months. I get bored easily and turned off by things faster than Linday Lohan driving away after a hit and run.

I can’t help it. It’s just my nature

So what are these elusive things? Well for starters, they aren’t earth shattering, so don’t get too excited. These are just styles, products, trends and items that I took a likening too and haven’t let looked back since (Some I have, some I use, some I emulate and some I covet). Warning; this is a very random list…so  just go with it.

  1. Matte nail polish – I can’t even begin to describe to you how excited I got when a few years back matte mail polish came to the mainstream. Ever since the day I laid eyes on SMG (Sarah Michelle Gellar) wearing white  matte nail polish in an episode of BTVS (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), I have been hooked. When I was younger, I would wear white out on my nails to try and recreate her polish!
  2. Leather pants – I’m not sure where this one stemmed from. I just so happen to think that ladies look muy caliente with some cow hide on their ass.
  3. Beachy hair – I’m a no fuss kinda gal when it comes to may hair, so beachy waves are perfect for me.
  4. Statement Jewellery – I’m not one for anything delicate, intricate or small. Tiny jewellery pieces don’t work for me, so I have always loved anything big, bold and chunky. Plus, when an item is so “in your face” everything else you wear can be minimal, which is exactly my style!
  5. This look – 
    This look is the cat’s pyjamas. Note, how she wears a simple top and bottom but throws on a fun print or embellished jacket. I DIE! She is my god.
  6. Black eye-liner, pink blush and pink lip gloss – It is my go to look. It can be worn during the day and at night, depending on how heavy-handed you are. Plus it looks good on most, if not all, skin tones and face shapes. The brighter the pink the better! My girl Emma rocks it (Did I mention Emma Stone is my girlfriend!? She is so gorgeous) without bronzer, but for a “glow” I like to throw some on. 
  7. Glitter – I love glitter. It makes me happy. That is all.
  8. Exfoliating Gloves – I am an exfoliation whore. I could exfoliate my skin all day long. Exfoliation gloves are perfect for a person like me, they are textured so you don’t need to use an exfoliating product (I do though!) which is especially good for sensitive skin!
  9. Ruby Slippers – Ever since I first laid eyes on Dorthy’s Ruby Slippers, I have wanted a pair. They are just the most exquisite pieces I have ever seen. I could never bring myself to buy anything that looks like them. If I can’t have the real thing, nothing will be good enough.
  10. These jackets; No explanation needed!
  11. Chanel 2.55 or Classic Flap – I shouldn’t have to explain why, but I will. They are Chanel, ’nuff said.
  12. Messy buns – I love the look of a messy updo, it’s so “Business in the front and Party in the back”… in the most non-mullet looking kind of way.
  13. Sonicare Toothbrush – Yup, a toothbrush. This thing is life changing, I would never go back to any other tooth-brush (manual or electric). There’s no other toothbrush like it.  It’s like a unicorn brushing my teeth.

And there you have it folks, the things I love. Well, other than real things like family and friends! Lol.

Happy Wednesday Fashionistas!

Kérastase to the rescue… It is WORKING!

I am happy to report back that my new hair care regime is working!!!

I am so freakin’ happy. I have only used it 3 times, as I am trying at all costs to avoid heat styling so I’m only washing my hair every 4 days (might sounds gross to some, but it is actually bad to wash your hair everyday!). But, I have to say that even after those few times, I’m seeing the results I was hoping for.

I used the system last night (Hair masque,  shampoo and conditioner) but didn’t heat style after, so no blow drying or anything like that. This morning I woke up to hair that, while still damaged, was not frizzy and crazy like it has been. I was beyond thrilled!

It is so moisturising I could pee my pants from how excited I get when I feel my hair after. Last week, I used it the “proper way” aka. with heat styling, and my hair felt amazing. Not only did it feel amazing right after, but the days that followed too. That is a huge thing for me, because as of late my hair has been going über dry within a day or two after I wash it, even with hair masques and all the other voodoo I was trying.

I can’t contain my happiness. I highly recommend these products!
