Happy New Year !!!!!!!

Happy New Year

New Year, Fresh start, 2012 was a good year with it's ups and downs of course. But overall a year with many blessings. With that said 2013 is around the corner and this means a fresh new beginning. I want to make sure this year would be much better in fact is not here yet and it's already much better.  I will be graduating from college, I will start my Internship in mid January at a very important news station and I got a job. 2013 sounds way much better already. like most of you my family and I have a New Years tradition, in my family we eat 12 grapes. Each person has 12 grapes in their hand and while were  counting down we eat a grape by the time is new years we have eaten them all. Each grape symbolize our own resolution. I am still thinking on the goals I want to work on, but I want to focus on goals that  I would actually achieve and wont be hard to keep up. I hope everyone have a welcoming year full of love, peace and new beginnings. Remember their are 365 days in a year so it's never to late to start all over again.

The Famous Denim Shirt of 2012

The Trendiest Shirt of the year

The Famous Denim or chambray shirt however you want to call it, I think this has been one of the biggest trend of 2012 and I believe it will still go on in 2013.  Every time I do my laundry I wash my denim shirt. I mean it is so versatile you can use it button up or down, with leather pants, leggings, dresses, jeans and even with prints. Is the kind of shirt that you can use all year round. My favorite way I love to pair it up is with a pair of leggings or denims. I just love how it looks and I just throw on some flats or boots and ready to go.

Day After Christmas....

Day after christmas

The day after Christmas most people go shopping or are still visiting their family members. My day is spending the whole day watching Gossip Girl and drinking some coffee with my favourite coffee creamer Baileys hazelnut flavor and eating some chocolate. I am loving this lazy day. No Homework no cleaning just being lazy.

Living Room Ideas for Apartment


Now that the new year is coming up  that means I only have one semester left in College. I am going to graduate in the Spring with that said I am planning on attending graduate school. I have decided that I want to explore a  new city and that means leave NYC. I will be looking for an apartment not that big maybe a one bedroom one but something that fits my budget and close to the University I would be attending.  Here I have some Home furniture  accents that would be great for the apartment and that can make a graduate student apartment have a touch of a sophisticated look and also a sense of an adult.  I can't wait. What would be some ideas you will have for your first apartment?

Small Office Renovation

Re decoration

As I said before in one of my post that I am planning on re decorating my bedroom. One of the things that I want to do is have my own office space in my room. I don't have the biggest space for my office in my bedroom but  I can make it into a small office space. This Is a little inspiration I made that way when I go shopping I can see what I want and how I want it to look. As you see I use mostly white because I love the color and it also makes spaces look wider and classy. I  have also included a clear chair because it doesn't take as much space due to that is clear. I am also going to include different color touches  like the black and white Chevron pillow and the wall LOVE frame. I am also including an inspirational board that way I can pin what inspires me. Hopefully soon I can post a picture when i am done with the remodeling project of my Bedroom.

BB Cream Fascination


I know probably all of you have heard of the famous BB Cream but I am the kind of person that loves makeup but doesn't like a cakey face and that is why ninety percent of the time I  don't wear foundation. I just use it for special occasion or if I really need it.  I normally apply almost everyday concealer and powder that's what on my face normally. But as I am always in the search of new products and after hearing people talk so much about the famous BB Cream. I decided to go on a hunt to try the BB cream of course that I did my research and these were the most BB Creams that had the best review. I went to the Bloomingdale's Bobbi Brown makeup counter I told the costumer representative that  I was looking for the famous BB Cream she smiled and said, "come let me apply it to your face". and while she was applying she was telling me that it has SPF 30 and that is basically like a tinted moisturizer but with more coverage and not heavy at all. After she applied it to my face I loved it, my face felt so silky and soft and it was not heavy at all I told her I AM SOLD.  I have used it a couple of times now and I love it definitely a good investment. Here are other brands off BB creams from 7 dollars to 40 depending on your budget give it a try I am sure you will love it.
What I love about BB Cream
- It's a light product
- It has SPF
- Moisturize your face
- Long lasting
-Natural Finish

HeadBoard Crush


 Lately I have been thinking of doing a makeover to my bedroom. I always like to change things a bit i that way i wont get bored of seeing the same things. I have had the bright pink in my teen years, to baby pink and now I have a cream color which I love but I want to transition to WHITE, I have fallen in love with white bedrooms but more with Upholstered headboards . I have been visiting different stores like, Pottery Barn, Crate&Barrel, Ikea, and checking also online to see different models. I have a huge crush on Upholstered headboard I just can't stop looking at them. The headboard it's so Chic and glamorous and at the same time it gives it a touch of comfort. I already have a white head board really nice but I would be happier if I get an upholstered headboard.

Want To Have Perfect Feet ? Here Are The Steps

Sometimes it's difficult to keep up with everything in your personal life or job and we tend to forget to take care of our skin, nails or feet. As a busy college student I barely have time. but I try to at least take care of my feet once a week although I admit sometimes I forget. But I found the easiest way to always have your feet nice, moisturize and not DRY it's one of my biggest pet peeve to have dry cracked soles. I mean who wants that,  no one especially us girls. Here are some of the products I use and some you can find in your kitchen and also very affordable.

Here are the Steps

1. Exfoliate your feet once a week, What i do is mix 1 to 2 tablespoon of brown sugar with 1lemon. I squeeze the juice of 1 lemon and mix it with the brown sugar. I exfoliate for 2 to 3 minutes on each foot.

2. After I exfoliate I moisturize my cuticles, I use olive oil and rub it all around my cuticles and toe nails I leave it for 5 minutes and I wash it after.

3. After I have exfoliated and moisturized my cuticles I apply Almond oil. Almond oil is very good for you skin because it moisturize your skin on top of that is natural. 

4. After I have moisturize my foot I put on a pair of cotton socks and sleep with it over night.

I do this once a week before going to bed, of course everyday when I take a bath I apply Almond oil I use it as my foot and body moisturizer.  Trust me you will have the softest, and nicest feet and soles. It is also very relaxing to do. You can find the olive oil at your local grocery store and the almond oil in a natural store, or Amazon, I buy mine at Whole Foods Supermarket.

Have Fun

Typical Makeup Geek Vanity Table

I don't know if you girls make a mess when you are putting on makeup, but I do. although I am a really organize person and always tend to have my vanity table organize. Every time I apply makeup this is how it ends, I just don't know but every time I am applying makeup I have to have my small trash bin next to me to throw away tissue, blotting sheets and anything that is not suppose to be on my vanity. My mom says I am a mess when it comes to Makeup, well I guess she is correct. Do you girls also make a mess when applying makeup? If yes leave a comment.

Favorite Christmas Movies

Every 90's kid I believe has watched this movie maybe a million times. I literally love it. It's a tradition in my home to watch it during the holidays. I think this movie gets you in the mood for Christmas, Is funny, and literally everyone can watch it. It a family movie. I Love it and cannot get enough of it. I also watch the other two home alone films.

My Other favorite Holiday movie it's ELF. Another comedy movie that has everyone laughing through the whole movie. It's also very touching it tells a story of a kid that was raised as an ELF and decides to look for his dad in NYC. The things Will Ferrell does in this movie has me on the floor, from the way "buddy" the main character eats, has different reaction towards some things it's just an overall entertainment. 

They are a must !!

Birthday Girl Wishes

I mean it's London who would not want to go to the UK. I am dying for the Rebecca Mikoff rose gold bag and these Kate Spade bow flats they are just lovely.

A little Christmas Spirit Around My House

Since I love Bows so much I decided to change up a bit this Christmas and use one it as a tree topper.

Reindeer's is a must in my home especially this gold baby here. My mom got it a couple years ago at a local home decor store and It just gives that touch of Christmas Spirit at home.

As you know in many places around the world people call Santa Claus Noel I saw this sign at Target and I liked it it gives it's not the typical Santa name. 

As you all girlies can see the touches in my home this years is Gold and Red.

College Finals !!!

Let me start with this I have 6 classes this semester and currently I have 6 projects to give in at the end of this semester. Which that is next week. I haven't been sleeping lately, trying to figure out all of the assignments. I am stressed, and my anxiety is over the TOP, Literally. The only positive side I see of this is that soon I will have a month off and then my final semester of College. I truly believe that professor should not wait to last minute to announce papers or projects I mean If I don't pass these classes I don't know what I am going to do. I don't want to flunk on my senior year of college. On top of that I have to do an extra paper for my Honors class. Sometimes I say to myself how I got cough up in so much work how did  this happen. I wish I could be able to go out more with my friends but currently the farthest I go is from my bedroom to the kitchen and bathroom on the weekends and to class during the week. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THIS IS OVER !!!!! Hardest semester in my life. I am sorry if i am  rambling too much, I decided to write about it  because in a way it  distracts me from so much work.

Bundle Up

Bundle Up

Now that Winter is finally here. You have to know how to protect yourself from the cold. I have here the basics to protect yourself from the winter. You need a pair of warm boots they don't have to be UGGs but these are my preference. warm mittens or gloves, Ear Muffs which I love. A nice puffy coat and a warm hat and scarf. Basically the Basics. I am a girly girl so I tend to buy pieces that will be casual but at the same time with an extra touch. That way I don't feel what I am wearing is boring.
