Yes, I did it.聽It was a rather big move for me to let go of all of my hair but I feel like this is one of the transformations in my life that needed to occur. I have been in the dark for the past few months and now I am back to celebrate life as it is.
A change of heart, a positive attitude towards life and acceptance of who and what I am as person. Cheers to 2013!

The Garden of Essie

While Tangerine Tango is the color of the year, the fashion color for spring will be mint green and bubble gum pink.

Essie will be launching nail lacquers that reminds me of Claude Monet’s paintings. Garden colors.

Note the names: Navigate Her is a creamy muted lime; Tour de Finance is a punchy, toned-down fuchsia; Orange; To Buy or Not to Buy is a classic shimmery lilac; Ole Caliente is a totally eye-catching watermelon red; A Crewed Interest, super-cool, super-retro opaque pink that resembles a sixties-era neutral.

 

NYFW S/S 2012 Beauty

Playing with colors isn’t very famous in the runways of NYFW S/S 2012. New York Designers opted for nudes,browns, muted monochromatic tones as the look for next season.

Ladies, it will be all about the skin. 聽So go visit your derma, invest on the right concealer and make up base…as 聽nude will take the streets in Spring 2012.

P.S.

If you get tired of those browns… try this metallic look as seen in 3.1 Philip Lim Fashion Show. Make up by NARS cosmetics.

Scratch that Stretch

We hated oily skin when we were younger. Now, I’m a sucker for oils and at this moment there’s only 2 hydrating cream/ oil I wanted to have…asap.

Clarins Tonic Oil 聽and

Clarins Stretch Mark Control.

There’s no sign of stretch mark yet. But I believe that prevention is better than cure. If it won’t totally work at least reviews say it will reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Now, who among you will be so kind to send me these? My shopping list is super long already.
