Twilight Inspired Beauty Products

November 19, 2009

Don’t really know much about the Twilight Series, but want to be a part of the craze? Want to have the mysterious appeal of those sexy vampires? In celebration of the New Moon, Nordstrom has launched “Luna Twilight.” You’ll get the blood stained lips, glistening skin and smoky eyes. It’s definitely time to see what all this Twilight mania is all about, and starting with makeup is right up my alley!

Makeup Makeover!

November 5, 2009

My tan skin has now turned pale and the makeup that I was wearing over the summer is just not doing the trick anymore, specifically my eye shadows, blushes and lipsticks/glosses. It’s time for a little makeover and with all the new cosmetic sets out there, it seems as though I’ll have plenty to choose from.

What colors are you looking to show off this winter? Will you buy them as a present for yourself (you deserve it!) or will you receive it from a loved one?

Beaded Accessories and Tops: Stylish or Childish?

June 1, 2009

I’ve been seeing beaded accessories and tops everywhere I turn these days. They bring me back…reminding me of all the colorful beads I used to collect and the necklaces, ankle bracelets and rings I made when I was younger. Maybe that’s why I’m confused by the fact that they are resurfacing now when older. I’m liking it, but it also makes me feel a little immature to put some of them on. On the flip side, what’s so bad about bringing back some good ole’ memories?

Do you like this trend or is it too reminiscent of your childhood to wear it all over again years and years later?

P.S. If you want to try to create some of your own jewelry pieces, there are places all over NYC (and I’m sure in your area too) that have classes that teach you how to be a bead whiz all on your own!

Check out Femme Gems in NYC. It’s fun to get a few friends together and throw a party with wine, hors d’oeuvres and jewelry making!

P.P.S. I’m loving Fiona Paxton…she definitely puts a more mature (and gorgeous) twist to this trend. I also found some knock-offs of her stuff for super cheap in Nordstrom’s B.P. department.
