Vest Day

I rescued this denim vest out of my closet and could not help to fall in love with it all over again. I wore it with a bright shirt and some cropped black pants. Vests are so versatile and can completely transform an outfit. 

Shirt: Ann Taylor, Vest: DKNY, Cropped Pants: Old Navy

Red and Metallic

Since my last manicure got so many compliments, I decided to do a very similar one. This time I went for the red and the silver, I wanted a touch of metallic polish on my nails and I really liked the way they turned out. I went for vertical and horizontal lines, switching from one finger to the other.

Creamy Mint

I just cannot get over my love for mint. I think that it makes the perfect combination with a cream color. This combination of colors just reminds me of ice cream and dessert. I accessorized the peter pan collar with a subtle gold chain with some mint beads.

Tip of the day 1

I know that biting your nails is a very bad habit and looks bad. It makes your hands look ugly and with an unattended appearance. My tip for stopping this habit is to have a good manicure. You may think this sounds weird, but the truth is that whenever I have my nails done, either by me or a professional it really prevents me from biting them. They look so pretty and perfect, that just knowing that biting them will ruin their look, prevents me from biting them. 
I hope this tip was helpful and that you take it into consideration.

Pretty in Aqua

This is the dress I wore on my birthday! It is a beautiful hi-lo aqua dress that I got at A'gaci. I really liked the way it looked on. It came with a beautiful black and gold belt that I decided to wear it with. It accentuated the waist and was the perfect compliment for this dress.

Might as well enjoy it and have lots of fun! 


Waves are Chic

I love the way wavy hair makes a woman look. For me it is the sexiest type of hair a woman can have. It just looks chic, effortless, pretty and sexy. I've been wearing my hair like this for the last couple of days and I am completely in love.

If I could only...

Yesterday I was thinking, what if one day I were under a situation where I could only use three products for the rest of my life? The situation may be a little bit difficult, because it means for the rest of your life. After thinking for a few minutes I realized that the answer wouldn't be completely tough. So these are the 3 products I chose. 

1. Estee Lauder DayWear 
This is the perfect moisturizer, it makes you feel fresh and rejuvenated every time you apply it to your face. It has a delicious smell of cucumber that just makes you feel awake. It is also an anti-oxidant cream with SPF 15, which is a plus, especially lately that our skins get more exposed to the effects of the sun than before. 
2. Medicated Lip Balm
The perfect lip product for a person that gets chapped lips very easily. This is amazing and it makes my lips feel soft and hydrated. 

3. Elf Blush
My favorite blush of all time, it is perfect for every season and it instantly makes me feel prettier. I think it is the number one product that every girl should have, if they were put under the same situation.

What are the three products that you would choose?

Happy Tuesday!

Pretty Stripes

This nail design just came all of a sudden, it just popped into my mind when I saw the two colors together. I wanted to do something different, so I decided to attempt some pretty stripes on my nails. I think the combination of the light green and the mint colors go perfect together. I think I also did a great job with the stripes, because they look pretty straight, well at least according to me. 
I started by applying 2 coats of light green nail polish.

I used two nail polishes from Forever 21 and their line Love & Beauty

What do you think?
Happy Monday!

Healthy Eating

I did a short video showing you what I eat mostly on a daily basis. It is basically my favorite combination of foods at home. I grill some chicken breasts, then I sliced some zucchini with some pepper on top and grilled it with a little bit of PAM and I also did healthy mashed potatoes. I like to complete the meal by adding a plate of hot vegetable soup. 

Here it is an extra picture of the final result

I hope you like it, if you want a more in depth recipe of each dish let me know and also if you want me to film more videos of my healthy cooking and daily eating please let me know, so I can do more!

A Peachy Affair

Colored pants are the most amazing piece of clothing during this season. They are completely versatile and with them you are able to make multiple combinations. I am extremely in love with this pair I got a few weeks ago. They are very comfortable and you can make them as dressy or as casual as you want. I decided to pair mine with a beautiful colored sequined blouse and cute feminine sandals. 

Peach pants: Forever 21, Blouse: H&M, Sandals: Vince Camuto 

What's your favorite pair of colored pants?

Faded glitter

I just can't get enough of glitter nail polish, to me it is the perfect nail look for this season. It is very on trend, but at the same time it looks very girly and pretty. I decided to try a new glittery look with faded glitter throughout my nails. I concentrated more the glitter on the tip and worked it downwards. I tried not to cover the whole nail so that the effect could shine and distinguish. I used a beautiful silver glitter polish from Forever 21 and a base and top coat from OPI.
