Dark Wine

After a long walk back and forth through the aisles of my drugstore, I finally found what I was looking for. I wanted the perfect dark nail polish for the Fall season. Luckily after searching for some hours minutes, I spotted it. It is a very dark wine color, under the sun it looks very purple. From far away you can think it is black or dark brown. It just screams Fall and I love that. It is from Revlon and the color name is Vixen
The quality is really nice. With 1 coat you get the exact same color from the bottle and if you want it a little bit darker, you can always apply another coat. I will definitely wear this nail polish a lot during this season.

Happy Weekend!

Picture of the Day 12

I hope that you are having the most amazing of days! What are your plans for the weekend?
My headpiece is actually a mini hat that I was given at the party that I attended. It was an Alice in Wonderland (Mad as a hatter) theme party. 

Happy Friday!

Styling a Statement Necklace 1

In my last post of statement jewelry I asked you if you wanted to see how I styled statement necklaces. I had a huge response asking for me to do it. This is going to be a series and this will be post #1. I really hope you like it!
First of all I decided to style the Peter Pan Collar necklace. I decided to do it in a different way, somehow unexpected but I think it turned out beautifully. It is an edgy, chic and feminine outfit.

Watch: Burberry, Nails: Revlon (Vixen), Bangles: Urban Outfitters, Cross Bracelet: Glint & Gleam 

Denim Shirt: Forever 21, Faux Leather Skirt: Forever 21, Booties: Lela Rose, Lips: Revlon (Pink in the afternoon

A Beautiful Statement

Jewelry can really change an outfit and make you look gorgeous. I recently bought this beautiful Filigree Collar Tips from ShopLately and I am obsessed. Definitely the perfect piece of jewelry to have in your box at the moment. 
I wore it with one of my favorite trends which is: sheer shirts. This one is a black buttoned up shirt and it is a staple and basic item in my closet. 

Happy Tuesday!

Latest Beauty Obsession

This new mascara that I purchased a few weeks ago is by Maybelline and is called, The Falsies Volume Express in black drama and it is also waterproof. I have used it for the last days and I am really pleased with it. My previous mascara was Covergirl Lash Blast and I completely loved it. I was hesitant about trying a new one, but I finally decided to give this one a try. I am in love with the results and on how it makes my lashes look. 

- It makes my lashes look amazing
- It adds volume as it claims, but it is also lengthening
- It is very black
- It is really waterproof, it lasts a long time in my lashes
- With a good eye makeup remover it is very easy to take off
- The curvy wand is perfect, it is easier to reach all my lashes with it

- It dries very fast, so you have to work it in your lashes very quickly

Overall, I really like it a lot! I recommend it to everyone, if you haven't tried it, go ahead and do it.

New In: Jewelry

I am so happy with my latest jewelry purchase. I tried a new site, which is a shop that I discovered online. It is Shop Lately and they have beautiful and affordable jewelry for different types of people and also different tastes. I got two pieces and feel really pleased with both of them. They have a flat rate shipping of $2.99, which is really good in my opinion. It took approximately 1 week to deliver and the pieces came in a pretty package. My pieces were from the glint & gleam brand, but they sell other brands too. 

The bracelet is a Seaside Sparkling Cross in turquoise & the "almost" necklace is adorable, they are actually Filigree Collar Tips in gold. Im in love with both pieces and can't wait to show them in future outfits! 

Have you shopped this site?
