monday's obsession. 1.31.11.

spring 2011 nail polish trends.

Baby blue "Glitter in the Air" made its catwalk turn at the Badgley Mischka spring show—Lippmann layered it over "Fashion," a creamy taupe polish. And Lippmann used "Naked," a color she calls a "true nude," at three different fashion shows—"Naked" is perfect for all you ladies who love the totally neutral-nail look, but haven't yet been able to find a not-too-white/not-too-pink color.

serendipity in your own home. make your own FroHo.

i always wondered how the restaurant serendipity came up with this oxymoron drink. now you can create your own frozen hot chocolate here.

to add some fun to it, try toasting some marshmallows and adding them on top!

sunday's obsession 1.30.11.

lace nails.. do it yourself.

nails done by sally hansen.

i took this photo last year at tracy reese's fall/winter 2010 fashion week and thought it would be awesome to do this to myself. you can follow these simple steps...

1.start with a clean nail.
2. brush on gel resin.
3. pick a thin parisian piece of lace & attach
4. spray with glue dry
5. cut & shape using an embroidery scissor
6. re-resin.
7. to remove, soak in acetone

note: use a fun base color to use under the black lace. you can definitely play around with this and be as creative as you want with the lace fabric color or even just a simple base color.

you can purchase products at any local beauty store like an ulta or you can go online and order barielle products.

tracy reese backstage

spring summer 2011

i had the pleasure of working for tracy reese. this was fall 2010. her collection this spring is absolutely brilliant. the bold colors of blue and papaya made me fall in love with her even more.

all photos are taken by me.

banana pancakes.

woke up early this morning and craved banana pancakes just because of jack johnson's song. a little cliche but what ever. i like to spruce up my pancakes with a little bit of nutella rather than some chocolate chips. you can even try some peanut butter on top too to give it a little extra. 
find the recipe here.

happy sunday.


saturday's obsession. 1.29.11.

couture ballerina.

if i ever had to dance in that i think i would cry.
beauty is pain ladies.

high fashion skateboarder.

celine spring summer collection 2011
i absolutely love this collection. i'm not really a lover of this designer but this collection seems right up my alley.

last minute winter buy.

spotted this girl wearing the zara shaggy white faux fur coat that i always wanted. i was tempted to get it but failed to do so cause i didn't feel like paying so much money for it. good news! its on sale now at zara. to be quite honest i'm not sure if they have any left. but i recently just googled it and it came up on ebay for $79. such a steal.

happy hunting.


bad gal.

something to dance to.
something to put on repeat, if you must.


mmm.. love love love these rings. the crystal details and gold animal rings are calling my name. these need to be in my jewelry box a.s.a.p.

salt mines.

jamie rubiano & jason lest for esteban cortazr's 2nd collection for exito.

braids braids braids

miss neely inspired me with these photos.
good thing my hair is long enough to cover the whole entire back of my head with a loose, chic braid.
add a braid into your every day style. either a side loose braid or a double french braid. doesn't matter, it just adds a little something.

fierce little dancers.

single ladies.

as seen on good morning america, dr. phil, cnn, the early show and just about every news station across the country... 

i saw this video so long ago but i thought i'd share it with you.
this performance is insane. i love it. and not to mention they're only 7-9 years old.
dancers are from dance precisions in placentia, ca.

p.s. i dont think they did anything provocative. they are very talented.

friday's obsession 1.28.11.

oh. my. god. animating chanel. this is insane. i love this so so so much. thank you to my wonderful boyfriend for finding this for me. he knows me too well.
