OOTD: Vintage Missoni.

Hey loves!

So I haven't done an OOTD in a long time and I wanted to share with you all my latest finds!

As I was causally browsing the aisles of The Salvation Army I saw this beauty!

The color & fabric I found to be so unique I had to have it <3

I tried it on and of course it was to large but nothing a stylish belt can't fix ;)

I didn't see a label any where so when I realized it was a Missoni shirt I was shocked! 

If I knew that in the store I probably would have held it up in the sky and sang the Hallelujah chorus at the top of my lungs! lol 

(I know I have problems!) 

As for the belt which is my second part of the outfit...I was just walking past a table in a flea market and BAM! it caught my eye!

I stuck with plain black leggings and open toed beige heels since I wanted the focus of my outfit to be the top & belt.

I'm a sucker for vintage clothes & accessories they will be the death of me </3 lol

What is your favorite accessory to add to an outfit? xox Catalina

Send Me Your Wishlist.

This is my personal wish list I'm slowly trying to purchase all these products.
Whether with gift cards or my own money I really want these items before the new year!

Of course their mostly cheek products...I have issues!

Now let's see what products I've been dying to get<3

1. NARS Miss Liberty Highlighter
2. Illamasqua Blush in Hussy
3. M.A.C Lustre Drops in Sun Rush
4. NARS Blush in Sin
5. NARS Blush in Love Joy
6. YSL Lipstick in Nude Beige

  • Miss Liberty is NARS new Highlighter which I had no idea about till I saw Tanisa tweet about it. Def check out her blog StealMyHeartLovee she always has great post <3 
  • Okay so I've been wanting this blush for a minute! Grr I need Hussy now!!
  • After purchasing Pink Rebel I feel like I need Sun Rush since its gives off more of a glow. Pink Rebel gives off more of a dewy look.

  • I've been getting into mauvy/purple blushes lately. I was looking into this blush but wasnt sure how I felt about the shimmer, since NARS tends to have alot of glitter and shimmer in their products, but after seeing so many raves on various blogs I know it's a must have.

  • I must admit I've seen Love Joy all over the place and a lot of girls say this blush goes with every makeup look. I guess I'm finally giving into temptation! lol

  • I feel like every girl has experience the amazingness of YSL but me! This lipstick has been on my wishlist for such a long time...I just keep buying everything but :(  
What's on your wishlist this year? xo Catalina

October Favorites

Hello makeup junkies/fashion lovers,

 I have never done an Favorites post ever because I simply use different products everyday.

Some products I'm always changing in my routine are lipsticks, and blushes.

This month I was surprised in myself for sticking with certain products, maybe my sister is rubbing off on me lol!

She sticks to the same products for a month straight...I have no idea how she does it!

But I will try to continue this pattern since I love seeing what other bloggers/ You tubers monthly favorites are :)

The rest is a lot of eyeshadow, smudging and blending.

I also put a red blood on my teeth.

I hope everyone has an amazing Halloween.

If you want details on any of the products used just comment below!!

Throw Some Glitter On That...

Hey chics & dudes,

As you all know its Fall in NYC and the leaves are falling down.
I've been embracing the weather with some glitter ;)

I've been into the metallic look and sparkle of course!

These are two polishes I've been currently obsessed with this month of Oct <3

Milani Jewel FX Nail Lacquer in Gold
Bottom Coat: Revlon Peach Nectar
Middle Coat: Forever21 Nail Polish in Gold (small gold glitter)
Top Coat: Milani nail polish in Gold
then a finishing coat

I decided to go for a nude/peach color as a base so the gold can pop out! I really love how the gold on the Milani polish are large so they can be more visually seen <3 LOVE

Revlon Nail Polish in Belle
Bottom Coat: O.P.I's You Don't Know Jacques! (matte) (2 coats)
Top Coat: Revlon's Belle Nail Polish
then a finish coat

 I was just staring at my nail polish rack trying to decide which color would look well with Belle. Belle has small refined glitter then larger ones comparable to Milani's. I really love this combo especially since the bottom coat is matte which makes Belle that metallic feel <3

What's your favorite glitter polish? xoxo

OOTD: The Return of the Poncho.

Hey Dolls!

So I've been embracing fall recently.

This post was influenced after watching  pinkcupcake211 a.k.a Carolina's OOTD
(click OOTD for link) 

I love her style and she is drop dead gorgeous! She has great beauty related views so def sub to her if you can!

So I raged through my closet to find my poncho! I bought it last fall and haven't worn it yet.

Ponchos are really in this season and their great when your not in the mood for a blazer or light jacket.

I wore this outfit for a night out with my guy friends whom I love!

This is just casual and my personal spin on it and FOTD was simple as well :)

Hope you girls/guys enjoy!

Elie Saab Spring Summer Paris Fashion Week 2012.

Hey fashion junkies!

So as you all know Paris Fashion Week is one of the most influential in fashion trends and etc.

Personally, I love European fashion over American just because the creativity and perspective on fashion is totally different. 

I wanted to share with you my favorite show this season.. Elie Saab's Spring/Summer collection.

To me this collection is classic, sophisticated, sexy, modern, and elegant.

The color scheme is absolute breathtaking and can suite many different skin tones.

I'm in love with every single piece in this collection.

I hope you all enjoy the video.<3

Personally I love to see the hair and makeup backstage :x lol

Which was your favorite show this PFW 2012? xoxo

Rachel Zoe's New Home.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Today I wanted to discuss one of my many loves..interior design.

My mother has greatly influenced me in this area. I could spend hours with her shopping for home decor and I assist her on modern aspects to incorporate into the home.

During this season of the Rachel Zoe's Project, Rachel and Roger move into a new luxurious home.

Rachel Zoe appointed one of her employees, Jeremiah Brent, to design her home and it came out fabulous.

It was exactly what Rachel wanted if you want to check out the episode it is in this link The Rachel Zoe Project

Urban Decay Fall/Holiday 2011.

Hey makeup junkies!

I'm sure some of you have seen these Urban Decay Promo pictures but I just wanted to share with you all these makeup looks I'm currently obsessed with!

I don't own any of these picture but they are found on their Facebook page.

I love the feel of retro and 80s style to these looks. 

To me the looks are still modern and the angles are breath taking!

Fall Fashion is here!

Hey loves,

So fall weather is officially coming to NYC this week which I'm super excited for!

I love fall fashion out of all the seasons because you can be so versatile with your wardrobe.

You can pair a floral print dress with a jean jacket and boots and ta-da! You look effortlessly chic <3

This are just some fall trends that I'm personally loving right now!
  •   Blazer
A classic Blazer never goes out of style I personally love to throw them on to instantly dress up jeans or a dress.
  • Chuncky Over Sized Sweaters
I love to be comfortable and this is a piece of clothing that just looks so cute paired with leggings and boots.

  • Chiffon Shirts
I love chiffon shirts in the fall! They are warm enough for the weather and can be worn in various events.

  • Jacket with Fur Trim
I'm not a fan of real fur but fake fur is fine with me. I personally love this green military color jacket it looks amazing and can be mixed & matched with some many different colors.
  • Wool & Leather Shorts
I honestly I really need a pair of both these shorts! I think shorts paired with tights and cute heels is so classic. This is one of my favorite fall outfits.
  • A Bright Colored Dress
 I'm a big fan of earthy colors and fall is the perfect season to display them. I love green, orange, peach, tan, khaki dresses for fall.

  • Fur Trimmed Boots, Oxfords, & Wedges
I think all of these shoes keep coming back every season. I think they are essential since they are comfy and can be pair with jeans, dresses, and leggings.
  • Neutral Purses
My new favorite color for this fall is muted pink. I think this color in purses just adds a splash of color to an outfit without being over whelming.
  • Scarfs
Oh don't forget the scarfs! Scarfs are my go to accessory when I want to add something to an simple outfit such as a tee shirt and jeans.

What Fall Fashion is your favorite?:)

I think its fun tag to do because you see similarities you might have over looked in the past.

hey loves! So Fall officially starts this week and NYC weather is already hitting low temperatures.

That means good by bright nail polish and time to bring out those transition colors!

I love fall and it's a great season to still rock a splash of color on your nails.

Now let's see my top picks for fall transition colors...

OOTD: Turban Love.

Hey dolls! so I went out with my friends to the city for a night and I wanted to share my outfit.

Personally I love the color mustard yellow and since I still have a tan it looks extra nice!

The outfit is simple but I wanted to spice it up with a turban which I love! 

I have my mother's vintage earrings she let me have for the night how sweet! lol

Bronzers for Blush Addicts.

Hope all you beauties are doing well :)

Today I wanted to share with you all blush addicts or bronzer addicts some bronzers that I love to wear as blush :)

I'm pretty tan even in the winter time so I do not put bronzer all over my face, instead I like to use them to give me a nice glow.

Bronzers are great to add depth through contouring as well.

The Bronzers I will be discussing can be used as a contour, but I perfer to use them as blushes.

Now lets take a look at my new addiction ;)

I was chatting to her on Twitter about where she purchased the Barry M blush in Apricot and she mentioned ASOS.

So naturally being the Blush Addict that I am I searched on the site for that Blush.

Sedu Ionic Ceramic Pro Flat Iron.

So my flat iron broke, so I began the search for which flat iron to purchase next.
It was either between CHI or GHD.

I know these are really good quality flat irons but they did not offer the right size since I like flat irons that are a little more in width.

For reference I have naturally curly hair that does get frizz alot and takes about 30 mins to straighten on my own.

So now lets talk hair!

Review: Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse.

Foundations work differently for everyone.
It all depends on your skin type.
